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!

That's where the SkyCaddie has its advantages. No holding steady required. Just walk up to your ball and it shows you the distance to the hole and the hazards around you.

Okay, I went back to the golf grip and continued my quest to hit down on the ball. The results were better. I hit my irons very well. This grip trends to force the club face on the driver open at contact, so I sliced several drives. The result was an 86 including four triple bogeys. Three were on the front nine. I played really well on the back nine finishing 13/18 with: par, birdie, par, par, grrr triple. Had I not blown 18 all to hell I would have finished the back in 39. Never been under 40 on nine. Ever.

So, I'm encourage, but could use some advice on how to cure the slice off the tee.

Also, my 8th grade son is ready to play again. I can find cheap clubs but need to get him fitted. Any suggestions in or around the KC area would be great.

If he's ready to play and is more like a beginner you'd be better off just getting him a used set of clubs fit to his height with the softest shafts he can control. He's going to be growing significantly, and if he plays a lot, his swing will likely change somewhat too as he becomes more skilled. Fitting a beginner is a great theory in concept, but somewhat overrated.

Regarding your slice: Make sure that you are finishing your swing with almost all of your weight on your front foot. If you still notice that the balls are leaking, try to ingrain a feeling of shaking hands with your dominant hand past impact. Those should stop you from hanging back and leaving the face open.

My early season golf is just awful. Think I'll pound a bunch of balls tomorrow. The only pound of the year. I'm to old to pound much more at this point. It hurts!

Should go without saying, but if you get the chance to go to Augusta National - even for a Monday practice round - do it.

Wednesday was just an incredible experience. Walked the course in the AM and had a front row seat on the ropes of #1 tee for the Par 3 Contest.

Awesome dude.

It's really worth it to go. I was shocked at how hilly it is, tv doesn't do it justice. If you lay up on 15, it's like hitting of a mountain.

Also, did you notice once you get inside, things are extremely cheap (food, beverages etc)?

I was prepared for the elevation changes, as my BIL and some friends have been before. The things that stood out to me were how big/deep a lot of the bunkers were - especially on 2 fairway, 10 fairway and 18 green.

Also, 12 looks nothing like it looks on TV. If anything, it's a bit uphill.

Green complexes are amazing. 7 is just diabolical.

And yeah, prices are very friendly. I think the most expensive thing on the menu was an import beer at $4.

And the places where Phil hit that 4-iron from the pine straw on 13 and Bubba with the monster hook on 10 were incredible to see. Amazing shots.

I hate 7 just from playing Tiger Woods. Uphill shot into a green that slopes that severely back to front with cavernous bunkers in front. Tuck that pin on the right side and it's just a one who sucks the penis of a hole.
