Some golfers that are learning like the penalty that a mis-hit blade will punish you with, kinda pavlovian. If you are about scoring, a game improvemnt iron is much more consistent for most

From 150 yards i'll hit a 7 or 8 with my blades depending on conditions, with my new Nike covert's its a 9...tops.

I'll still say a sweet strike my 690mb's feels better than anything, but I do like my new clubs.....
Interesting. Good to know!

BTW - No update from my buddy. Don't think he really cares enough.

Anyone free to play Friday or Saturday? I'm free Friday after 12 and most of the day Saturday I think, pending on whether or not I have to hit Santa Cruz to pick up my bike on Friday or not.

Got water polo tomorrow at 6 so can't do 3 tomorrow much as I'd like to. I'm back on a Monday - Thursday 9-8 schedule.

Ugh. I want to be good at golf so bad! Shot a 95 today. Need to reel in the "duff's" or mis-shots. When I do make contact, its generally playable. My irons could be a little more accurate, but making better contact with them. My short game has greatly improved, fortunately; ie, chipping within 75 and putting from anywhere.

Guess I need to practice more. Just feel like a big net and a mat will be misleading...?

I'm just starting to play after a 20+ year lay off. Went out cold turkey on Friday in a best ball tourney. I'm focusing the memories on the good shots.
The clubs I have are a bag full someone gave me to use. Just ordered irons from Golf Mart/Dublin. Great experience. I'm 6'2" so they added length, bigger grips, etc. I hit 6 sets before we came back to the ones I hit the best and felt best, Cleveland 588MT's.
O'yeah - I suck at golf! Inside 100 yards I'm OK, Chip's are solid, putting is OK, drives are inconsistent as hell.

Me too, and I play like once a week!

Putting and chipping keeps getting better. Irons and drives still aren't great.

Ha! If I could get to shooting below 100, I'd actually start to take this shit seriously.

I average like 85 these days...when I actually get around to finishing 18. Lots of the time I end up playing 9-12 and get tired of being stuck behind slow people and quit. When you can finish 18 in 4-4.5 hours and you're only on 9 after 3, and people aren't letting you play through...

I wish I shot below 100. I average 110-120

I played in a fundraiser tournament last month, collectively our team shot an 85 I believe. We played best ball for every shot and I hated it.

Didnt really feel like golf to me

Golf is an endurance game. If you dont have the patience to focus for 5 hours, even if its from slow players, you have to adapt. Another componentthatmakes me like it actually. The mentally tough survive...

New handicap is a 19.

Am I retarded if I buy a scotty cameron putter? 45% of my strokes are putting.. seems to make sense from an investment standpoint?
