  1. I might try just for poops and giggles. He has grown quite a bit since he last used those clubs. His current driver is a Big Bertha 454 with a pro launch blue stiff shaft that plays at 44”. He’s consistently over 300 yards so his new driver isn’t an issue with him this was really just my curiosity wondering if anyone had converted a kids club to an adult club.
  2. Son came home from school and wanted to go hit balls. So I told him his clubs were in the golf closet where his old Moxie set is kept as well. He was talking about how he loved those clubs and used to crush that driver, wished he could still use it. I wonder how light it really is.
  3. Has anyone ever reshafted a Ping Moxie driver with an adult length shaft? Is it even possible?
  4. Not super quirky but I’m the only person in my circle of golf friends to set up my bag this way…no fairway woods. Driver, 17* and 20* hybrids then 4 iron on down. Just can’t hit them off the deck.
  5. Three peanut butter, butter, and fried Canadian bacon grilled English muffin sandwiches. I have one hour max after the last bite to take care of business. At that point I’m well nourished and gastrointestinally clear. I also try to avoid courses that only provide single ply TP (this is one of the most often overlooked course management strategies).
  6. I did it to myself, no reason either other than greed. I started playing quite a bit last year and practiced almost every day. Put a shorter shaft in my driver and it worked like magic. Played the best most consistent golf of my life. I also became aware that I was regaining swing speed and flexibility the more I played then for some reason I thought I could get longer off the tee. I put a longer (for me) shaft in my driver and I did get longer….and sometimes lefter…and sometimes righter, somehow I also started swinging up on the ball too. It has grown progressively worse all summer. Now I have a two way miss with my driver and a terrible knot in my stomach on the tee when I pull driver. I went back to the shorter shaft and while better I still get an occasional block way right, before this year I’d never hit anything right. My misses have always been left and I had no problem just aiming right without worrying that it wouldn’t come back left. I just can’t get comfortable with a club that was my favorite club to hit. For those of you that fell into the chasing distance black hole, how did you get back?
  7. On course, in the moment, I get upset with myself if I fail to execute whatever I’m trying to accomplish. Once the last hole is finished, let’s eat and laugh at each other.
  8. Tiger at Pebble absolutely demolishing the very best in the world. If I live to 100 I doubt very much I’d see better golf played. That was as close to perfection as humanly possible on a golf course.
  9. In a shocking twist, after about a year engaged, they broke up…but Mr L stilled golfed with us from time to time. No hard feelings at all.
  10. The Shattuck in Jaffrey, NH 71.0/142 at only 6100 yards and The Dunes Club in Myrtle Beach the Tuesday after the Senior Tour Championship.
  11. Instead of trying this year’s stuff, is there anything from past year’s offerings that you didn’t get a chance to own? Adds a little hunting to your off-season and possibly some time as a seller next spring if it isn’t for you.
  12. 43.75 because as soon as I go longer than that I have lots of 50 yard hooks or 30 yard blocks. Got really back into golf last year and was struggling keeping the ball in play with driver. Put a shorter shaft into my driver head and presto, straight without any loss of distance. if you do go the shorter route pay attention to the weight of the head. Last year as I started using the shortie the weight made no difference. However, the more I’ve played and practiced my swing speed has gone from 90-92 to 98-100. This has led to some real “feel” issues for me this season that I only just figured out/fixed.
  13. I just added a ton of lead tape to my driver and the sound is now pretty muted. Didn’t mind the sound prior but really like the sound it makes now.
  14. I have a Hoofer and have zero issues with tangle. With that being said I used a bag for the last 25 years that didn’t have any dividers at all so I guess it is all relative.
