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!

I left golf for about 8 years. Now that my kids are older, and want to play, I'm ALL in. I even have my wife getting into the game. Matter of fact, my wife and I are going on a 5-Day golf vacation in Sedona in May.

That would be a blast. Of course, I've always said to myself "Keep the wife out of golf....it's the only piece and quiet you get" lol.

I don't care about any of this crap about Tiger going through sex therapy. He probably doesn't mean any of it, anyway. I just want him to play golf again by the Masters.

Just got in from 2 man scramble. -2 69 to finish at the bottom of the champ. flight. Fun considering we'd only played twice since last fall. Wishing we'd found a bogey somewhere.

Just went and chipped and putted for about 45 minutes for the first time this year.

I'm working on two main things this year: keeping my spine angle consistent, and making sure that my left wrist doesn't break down in my putting stroke.

YMMV.

I'm in the market for a new complete ****ing waste of money driver myself.

That said, the technological advances from my G2 to the current crop isn't what most would have you believe.

I'm thinking about grabbing a gently used Rapture (original, super long) or taking an FT-9 for a test drive and figuring out what shaft works best for me.
I used to feel the same way about square drivers.

Then I picked up a Callaway FT-I on eBay with a matrix xcon 6 for nothing. Dude had no idea the shaft alone was worth a bundle. Figured if I hated it, I'd pull the shaft and double/triple my money.

Finally took it out yesterday, and I hit the biggest bombs ever with it - and you can still work the club. Pretty damn happy about that get.

I tried a Nike Square driver a couple years ago and just couldn't hit it. Didn't like it so haven't tried another one since.

I would bet that most of that is the shaft, though.

Absolutely.

But if I'm hitting the ball just as far, in some cases farther - and hitting more fairways in the process - I could give a shit what the clubhead looks like.

It's not for everyone, I know, but I'm glad I gave it a shot.

Went through the same issue a couple of years back, changed my putting grip from a traditional overlap to a reverse overlap grip. Took a good couple of weeks to get a feel but have loved it on short ,3-8 foot putts ever since. And that grip doesn't allow for the wrist breakdown.

Kind of my story. My oldest was born 13 1/2 years ago and I put 'em up. Last year, all three kids and my wief seemed to show an interest. Went out, bought some new clubs, and joined a club. Having a blast. Now if I can just keep myself from opening up to early in my swing.

I was at a Dick's Sporting Goods last night and found the following clubs:

Callaway FT-IQ Imix (Fubuki) for 199 (they also have the V2 and ProLaunch, FWIW)
Ping Rapture (original) with a Blueboard for 199.

Thoughs?
