Okay, here is a place for the Golfers to talk about tournaments, clubs, swing help or thoughts.

Today is the Players Championship, which I think ought to be the 5th Major. Largest pot in the PGA. The daunting 17th, which seems to bring excitement every year. At least we will get to see Sergio blow up yet again.

I am ready to see some water balls!

So I made the plunge to high tech golf equipment and FedEx just delivered my driver. It's been on the truck all day here in town so I guess they saved me for last. I would have been at the course hours ago if only.........

I went with one of the stocks shafts to avoid being robbed. The Miyazaki CKua 59 Xstiff. Feels good.

The trial run went really well. I've only been out twice this year before today but I felt pretty good standing over the ball so I was able to swing freely. I hit several good drives with it and I'm convinced that I'll hit this club farther then my 15 year old steel shafted T-Zoid.

They built this club for me.

When I was a kid I'd jump the fence and play to the clubhouse and when I walked in the pro shop I'd walk over and eye the persimmon headed Hogans. To me that was the pinnacle of golf equipment. Once I got a set of those I knew there was nothing better. Then they invented metal woods. Metal Woods? Really? It took me a long time to switch from wood to metal. I only did so because I realized that I wouldn't be able to ever replace my wood headed clubs when they were worn out. So I went with the T-Zoid with a metal shaft. The smallest head I could find on a metal shaft. It was a good set of fairway woods and the driver served me well. But alas 15 years later it was time to change.

It only took them 20 years but they finally made a titanium headed graphite shafted driver that looks and feels like a persimmon headed club. The new Cleveland Classic is awsome. Persimmon look with the classic pear shaped head.

It was flying a little higher then I'd like today but once I figure out how high I need to tee the ball I'll be able to work that out. It's a pretty cool thing to gain 15 yards off the tee at fifty years of age. I bet I gain more like 20 after get my stuff together. I pumped about it.

The bad news is that now I'm going to have to spend another three to four hundred dollars upgrading my fairway metal.

I guess the golf thing is dead at this point in the round but I don't care. Here's my lesson for the day.

Stay loose and swing the club.

Play golf like any sport. Play it with you heart and your eyes. Trust your eyes and take dead aim. Take dead aim and then hit that shot with all your heart.

I know it would suck for some of ya'll, but I couldn't be happier about it. I guess I could be happier actually, if I could play 12 over (a par 5 that I hit my driver OOB and ended up taking a 9 on). I also missed 2 putts inside of 2 feet and three putted two others, but I can't complain much....next goal is to do it again and then the next goal will be to break 85.

That's awsome. If you don't 3-putt you're unde 85.



I was at the course again today and I was working with the new Cleveland driver. I hit a drive on #7 at Deer Lake GC here in town that I just figured out was 370 yards long. It was down wind and a down hill a little but that's still huge. I think this new driver is at least 20 yards longer then my old club. Maybe even longer if I play alot and really get it going. Wow.

Just bought a set of new irons - Ping G20's (Graphite, Stiff Shaft). Can't wait to play these babies. Anyone here have any experience with them?

Not the pings, but why go with the stiff shaft? I'm looking around for irons, not sure what shaft to get if I do get some. I was thinking regular but I don't really know the difference.

I have been a very casual golfer for a long time. I'm consistently in the high 90's or low 100's. I'm thinking about the Adams A7OS irons and a new Taylor Made RBZ driver. My current clubs are 10 year old knockoff Callaways and an old Taylor Made driver that was a good club 10 years ago.

I'm hoping that an upgrade in technology will get me consistently to the low 90's where I can work on a couple things and start breaking 90. Hopefully, or my game has hit a plateau and I will have pretty much wasted $700.

I need a stiffer shaft on my clubs. I have no problem getting the ball up in the air, so a stiff shaft just falls better within my game. It also, if hit properly, gives you a little more distance. Don't know anything about Adams irons, but I really like the RBZ. It has a nice feel to it.

The more clubhead speed one generates the stiffer shaft he needs. If you can't hit the ball 250 yards you should probably go with the regular shaft. If you're longer than that maybe the stiff. With graphite IMO you can go a little stiffer then with steel.

Buying a set of Callaway X-Tour irons tomorrow for $200...think I'm getting a good deal, clubs are in immaculate shape.

Has anyone played or hit these? Pros and cons?

My drive has gone to shit in the last few rounds and I don't know what I've done. Everything else is OK, but the drive (even with a 3 wood) has a HUGE fade/slice right now (think, aim to the left side of the fairway, it starts there and about 150 yards out takes a right turn and if I'm lucky it stays on the extreme right side, but more often ends up 20-30 feet into the rough). Any suggestions?

I did break 90 again today, but only due to good putting and a couple of lucky shots (draining a 25 footer for birdie and chipped one in as well). Of course I got unlucky a couple of times as well. I hit one left of the OOB stake by about 2 feet that I could have easily played, but didn't.

Not a great day on the links. Being reminded that golf was created by the same bunch that thought bagpipes made good music.
