  1. Yes, its well worth getting, thanks
  2. Looks like a Golfnow type of service, just wondering if anyone has used it?
  3. Thanks for this, looks like a great deal. Do you know if the card is limited to residents only? And for golf can you take two golfers with one card or do you each need a card?
  4. Being a local you may not know, but any courses offer specials that include tourists? We'll be there early November and because it's two of us the only way we can afford to play much is using Golfnow. Wouldn't even mind playing some lesser courses (dumps) to even out the costs
  5. My wife and I are going to Vegas for 8 days in November and looking for golf suggestions.First St. George Utah area. We have played Sand Hollow and wouldn't mind playing it again. Any other courses a nice or nicer scenery wise? Hard to imagine. I know of the Ledges, Copper something, any other lesser known rec's? Wouldn't mind up to an hour drive from St. George.Now Vegas. Courses are insanely priced for tourists. We've played Coyote Springs, Badlands now closed, the Pauite courses, Boulder Creek, Sunrise, Boulder Creek city course off the top of my head. Looking for some off the beaten path courses that won't cost an arm and a leg. Don't have to be top notch courses. We'll likely play one upscale course, too. Any suggestions?And finally, Mesquite. We have played Conestoga, Wolf Creek and one of the Palmer courses there, I think Oasis. Would like to play Conestoga again depending on cost. Any suggestions?Something must be going on in Mesquite Nov 5-6 as we couldn't find a room available.Let me know your thoughts

  7. Even at 100th LPGA player you're still talking about the top .001% of women players. Compared even to a scratch male player who wouldn't even be top 10 % of male players. Well maybe he would be top 10% because so many men suck, but certainly nowhere near elite
  8. I don't really play for money, but even when its just bragging rights, I always tell people I'd rather they beat me 77-78 then I win 90-92.
  9. That's a good point. Sometimes you just need a fresh start, something different to look at. I do that with putters and always putt better for a short time at least.
  10. Different lengths allow you to have the correct posture which gives you a good starting point. But if you do something in your swing that causes toe hits it's not going to help.
  11. Again I ask, if you hit all your irons on the toe including say, your 5 iron, why would making your 6 iron into 5 iron length help? You already hit your 5 iron on the toe, why would a 5 iron length 6 iron head be any different? I could see setting up with the ball on the heel of the club, then when you early extend you'd hit it in the center instead of the toe.
  12. Where do you get your calluses? Usually from the callus store, but Amazon has free delivery
  13. I'm a little confused by the idea that toe hits are caused by clubs that are too short, or lengthening your clubs will correct the problem. If you're hitting all your clubs on the toe, and they're all different lengths how will lengthening them help? You're swing doesn't know if it's a 38" 7 iron or a 38" 8 iron, you're still going to hit it off the toe, no? In other words, if I hit my 38" 7 iron off the toe how will making my 8 iron 38" any better?
  14. I think it's more internal draw bias in most drivers. I play any driver I use as open as it will go and still draw/hook it. Recently picked up a Wishon 919 head (and because with Wishon you can actually speak to the guy who designed the head) He said there's absolutely no internal bias either way. So, while I draw a 2*-3* open face OEM the Wishon with a square face goes straight, little fade or I can even slice it if I put a bad swing on it.
