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!

It varies here in KC, and back home in South central MO it's more like you seem to play so they work well, or well enough.

It's a little old fashioned of me, but I like shotmaking and I sometimes feel technology has taken that out of the game, so I guess it's my homage to the game to only play 3 wedges.

I know not to hit driver on the last hole. I know to pull out a 7 iron and put it in the fairway. Today the blues were moved waaay over and there was plenty of room to get past the tree and drive the green. An eagle put is a sure thing with a solid straight drive.

Tree wins

Should have went 7 iron.

It takes a lot of gusto to not try the driver

I would have gone for it in that situation too. If you are playing recreationally, why not go for it? If you eagle that hole you have a memory that will last far longer than a shitload of pars.

An example:

A while back I was playing a massively long par 3. I hit a huge flare to the right and ended up 25 yards short of the green with a huge evergreen tree blocking me.

I delofted a 4-iron by about 15 degrees, then smashed a chip. It went underneath the low-hanging limbs (which were a foot off the ground), ran up through the heavy grass, and settled about 10 feet away on the fringe.

I missed the putt and made bogey, but what the hell? Sure, I brought quad into the equation, but I also got myself a shot at a par on a damned hard hole in a round that meant nothing.

I've always been so damn competitive, even with myself, that after playing competitive golf thru junior golf, high school golf, and college golf I just couldn't play that way. I had to take some time off as golf just ground me down to much and I was taking it so seriously.


I still do when we're playing matches, etc, but in fun rounds, it's more fun to just try shots.

I am relentlessly competitive, but I will always go for the shot to make the lowest possible score, even though it wouldn't give me the lowest score per 100 attempts.

For me, it's all about knowing when I actually have the ABILITY to hit said shot. For instance, I can hit a draw (I hate it coming off the face, and I hate the way it looks, actually I hate the draw period) but I know I can't hit a high draw with a 3 iron to a back left pin, so I rarely will try it.

<--- In that case, this idiot would say "**** it" and hit a cut to the draw pin.

Oh I've done it, but for said certain shot, I have to start the 3 iron out of bounds to get to the hole location.


And thats not usually something I like to do.

Hybrid or a good 5 wood, 1 irons are a thing of the past. I have a 1 iron which I jack with at the range sometimes just to make sure I can hit it, but it goes a lot lower and doesn't land nearly as nice on greens as a 5 wood. 1 iron you have to kind of run it to the green, at least fast greens.

Though if you play where it is windy a lot, a 1 iron might be the magic weapon.

I was 1 over on my round and thanks to that tree left with a 6.

I just had to go for it. I believe that is called the mickelson syndrome

I keep a 2 iron and when I hit it square it goes a long way. I can't imagine a 1 iron. It would have the same loft as a putter.

Also I have heard that if it is lightning outside on the course you should hold up your 1 iron because even God can't hit a 1 iron

Lofts vary on 1 irons. Old school 1 irons are going to have less loft than 1 irons made in the last 25 years.

I know Trevino said that quote but not sure if it originated with him. It is BS though as Trevino was 'the' best iron player Butch Harmon ever saw, and I don't see how the best iron player would have trouble with a 1 iron.

To me a 1 iron says wind and would not be something I'd have in the bag with regularity.

Do you guys think that if Tiger gets #15, the rest will come much easier?
