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!

If you haven't purchased these yet you might go for a used set. You can likely find a high quality used set for $120 or less.

Just a comment from a Ping fan (I5's in my bag)

Does your daughter really enjoy the game? If so, wouldn't that $500 set of clubs be worth the initial investment if she became good enough to earn a scholarship?

Trust me, I'm out at Alvamar enough that I often catch the KU women's team practicing. It apparently doesn't take a whole lot of skill to play for KU golf. While I'm sure there are some really good golfers on the team, there are also some girls that you wonder how they made their high school team.

Shit.

Wish I had known. I'm getting ready to sell a cherry set of Ping G5's.

I told if she gets into the running for a scholly, I'll get her a better name brand set. I don't want to drop 500 bucks if she decides to drop the game after one season. I've played with a set of Gigagolf P-3's, and they play as well as my G-5's and are better than my old G-2's.

They've got a nice deep cavity-back and the wide sole just like the G-15's.

I'll have her working with Kristen Samp over at LCC, one of the two best teaching pros in town. Kristen has played on the Duramed Futures and the LPGA tour. If we were members at Alvamar, I'd have her working with Drew Cote, the other of the two best in town.

Get her into it. It doesn't take a very good golfer for a female to get a full ride to school. Shit there's girls at the D2 school here that can't break 90.

I'm hopeful. She's a big strong athletic girl (5'8", starting power forward on her basketball team). Walking a course will be good for her legs prior to basketball season. She can already club the **** out of it, driving over 200 yards. She doesn't know how to finesse a shot, she wants to pound it as hard as she can each time.

Mine? Same clubs as last year.

Getting anxious as well. Had a couple nice days, but couldn't get out. Right now, it's just cold enough that I don't want to go. I'm hoping in the next week or so that it will warm up enough for me to get out.

I've only added a Callaway Diablo Edge Driver to my bag. I just got it and need to put a new grip on it since the standard grip is too small. Habanero stiff shaft.

Fairway 3-wood - Nike Sasquatch

Irons - Callaway Fusion +1" 2 deg. upright. 3-Lob Wedge
Putter - Zebra (bought in the '80s)

Our golf league starts the 21st. The weather has cooperated the past few years for the early weeks. I hope it continues.

I have used Titleist for years then went away from them for the past 3 years, but this baby is supposed to be the bomb!
