Just booked kiawah late June-
Fri: 8:30 cougar point 2 turtle point
Sat: 9:00 ocean course 3:20 oak point
sun: 9:00 osprey point
Have played a lot on HHI but never played in Charleston. Looking forward to (at least one) triple digit round in there. 8 of us going 4v4 over the weekend me and one other turning thirty. Could miss a tee time but should be a good time
That late round at oak will be enjoyable after the bludgeoning the ocean course puts on you. It's probably the most laid back of them all. Worst part is it's going to be tight if you want a bite and drink at the Ryder cup bar before heading over.
You still a fan of scissor lifts?
I thought so, but maybe that’s a player limit. My tolerance for selfish people right now is at an all time low.
I had my first night of golf league for the season...we have four man teams and the games change weekly. This week was 2 v 2 Best Ball match play. We come to the last and I drill a 15 foot putt for par. The other team has a 12 footer for birdie to win the match. He runs the putt by at least 4 feet...my teammate who had played maybe the worst 9 holes of his life “That’s good. Nice match.”
I could have killed my teammate. That 4 foot putt broke at least 3 inches and the guy was a terrible putter.
Cost us a chance for the win in the match and the team win overall. I’m all for giving putts but they made us putt 2.5-3 footers all night.
Some lpga golfer is pissed that women weren't invited to driving relief.
They want people to watch, Mel.
can't wait to hear the shit about this weeks golf, then.
Wonder which female athletes play golf in their free time.
I do think that mixed events would be great, but they were clearly chasing as much money as possible.
Women playing on Seminole might even show is more than driver wedge every hole.
Nothing would be funnier than LPGA players rallying to include women and the TV executives obliging them by picking Paige Spiranic as the female representative
Presidents cup should expand to be a mixed event instead of being Ryder Cup Jr.
Maybe we just need golf's version of the LFL
I dislike this idea very much.
Big President’s Cup fan?
Sunday at last year's presidents cup was amazing. Surely I can't be in the minority here.
Last year being the exception, which was also largely due to Royal Melbourne, the President’s Cup is a much worse version of the Ryder Cup and just flat non-competitive. Changing it up to a different type of team competition would be more interesting than watching the US roll the International team every time, again with the exception of last year
Just have 10 men 10 women and you still get everything you got last year. Only it's more competitive and is more than just a lesser version of the Ryder Cup. Give this another thought when the event isn't at the best course in the world and comes back to Quail Hallow.
The men's/womens stroke play event down in Australia this year was amazing viewing and I hardly knew a single player.
I think you are glossing over a lot from last year including Tiger and a pretty damn good group of international guys.
Part of the appeal to me is the time of year. Having a big portion of the best players in the world together in December is fun for me.
Basically I'm saying why does some new event have to replace a current one?
I feel like the “driver-wedge” argument is too simplistic. People use it assuming that scores are lower if it’s true. Seminole showed this weekend that it’s very tough to score on even with a wedge in hand on most holes.
Overall scores is the better argument, imo.
I’m not glossing over last year, it was highly enjoyable, but it’s also very much the exception. To the last part, it would have to replace it because the schedule is already a little full to entice the top players to play these “exhibition” events
Seminole was Driver/Wedge and the #1 player in the world didn't break 70. The #5 player shot like 76 without putting everything out.
More than the LPGA, yeah.
Going for an iron fitting tonight, first time I've ever done it but after 15 years I'm ready to replace my Callaway's. I'm curious to see if what I think I want is anywhere close to what the pro says I need
Which week? I will be there 20-26.
Anybody hit a new driver that they love? Going for my second fitting tomorrow. Didn't lover the Epic Flash.
I'm really happy with my Cobra from last year.. But my buddy hit a Sim this week and has been raving about it.
What is your handicap?
I just keep my scores on a phone app which has my handicap at 36 somehow. My last 5 rounds have been: 88, 87, 93, 92 and 84. I generally play the tips or 2nd from the tips depending on yardage so it's about 6,500 on avg.
I really like the Mizuno JPX919s, hoping they are a good fit
That handicap is definitely off based on those scores
I know it's not exactly your avg score minus 72 but I assume I'm somewhere in the 16-20 range since I break 90 about half the time. I used to break 85 that often so I'm trying to get back in that range and occasionally drop a 79
That’s pretty much my scoring and I’m a 14.5.
More to do with rust imo
No caddies and carrying their own clubs probably had some impact. I'm curious how much.
With those scores, you shouldn't be playing the tips.
I generally don't but there's some courses around here where the 2nd from the back is ~6,200 and in my usual 4some I'm the worst player so it's easier to just hit from the same tee.
you might just not have enough scores for it to register.
I've got a ton from the last few years but I probably fucked up somewhere and have myself down for an 88 on 9 holes or something similar. The point is that I'll be a scratch golfer once I get new irons for sure
dome foam we get in the 25th.
Boys trip to Coeur d'Alene was supposed to be next weekend. 16 of us. I just remembered and now I'm sad. We haven't rescheduled anything.
Yeah I think those will work. The Titleist T300 have been really good too.
Fitting was awesome, really enjoyed the experience. I hit the Mizuno Hot Metal pro, Titleist T300, Callaway Mavrik, ping 710 and 410 and the Taylormade Sim. Ended up down to Mavrik and Sim but the Taylormade won out. Every 7 iron out of my last 10 shots was +/- 3 yards in carry from 165 with a small fade and the horizontal dispersion was great. When I moved from a fade to a draw it start getting out in the 180 range with roll out which was a little concerning but otherwise i loved them. I hadn't even considered them going in but they were awesome. I also learned Ping irons are just not for me and my 7 iron swing is 87-90mph pretty consistently.
Let’s play that afternoon.
Where did you do this, local club or a store?
Bobby Jones golf course here in Atlanta. They have an indoor instruction and club fitting building next to the range so you hit from inside out onto the grass with a trackman. It's an awesome facility
