    Pidgeon Forge, Tn. March 12th

    Yeah, I was afraid with such short notice nobody could make it. But when SWMBO nakes up her mind, its easier to just go along with it, lol. Don't worry, I'll get plenty of pictures, I'm curious to see what my swing has deteriated to after not playing any more than I have,

    Pidgeon Forge, Tn. March 12th

    Seems my wife and doc have decided I'm spending to much time at home. So Now I'm apparently going to Pidgeon Forge,Tn, March 12- the 15th. I was just curious if anyone on Shottalk was ging to be in the area, live there, ect......... Would love to get together and play a round of golf with some...

    Alpha RM-5 Hybrids

    I HAD a complete set of Cleveland HiBore irons, basically a complete set of hybrids. There were times I loved them, but on a tight lie, its next to impossible to take a divot. They will make you a picker, picking the ball clean off the deck. Some people play their whole lifes that way. But if...

    <30 yard pitch and chip shots.

    I love working on my short game. My home course is only a 9 holer, but it was intended to be 18 initially, so we actually have a 10th hole. This is where I work on my short game, its a short par 3, or was intended to be anyway, and we talked the groundskeeping crew into keeping it cut like the...

    <30 yard pitch and chip shots.

    Actually, depending on how far I need the ball to run out, I'll use anything from my trusty 60º up to a 7-8 iron, I've even used my 2 hybrid a few times, but tend to do better with an iron or wedge, Just practice it, play around on the putting green and you'll figure out how far each ball will...

    New in the bag for 2012

    Lol, it was actually the green I was aiming at, number 8 hole, long par 4 , slight dogleg left. I'd hit 3 wood off the tee box and was about 225-230 out. The round wasn't an especially pretty or good round so I figured, WTH, lets try this puppy off the deck. To mine and my playing partners...

    New in the bag for 2012

    Love the wedges, and I wish you the best of luck with the 2 iron. I tried one and never could get the hang of it, but I'm sure you're a far better player than I am and can hit it. Although one of the prettiest, and most rewarding shots I ever hit was that 2 iron off the deck from about 225 out...

    <30 yard pitch and chip shots.

    I basically do the same thing from in close. Use a slightly modified putting stroke with my 60º. Unless of course I have to flop it over a bunker or something, but on a flat approach I use a putter stoke with the 60º. Normally I can snuggle it in close this way, I'll occasionally come up short...

    Thoughts on a half set for new golfer?

    If thats the way you want to go, then do it. Being happy with your choices, happy with the clubs you are standing over is over half the battle. I play a mid-sized cavity back iron, would a set of super game improvement irons help me, probably. But I don't like how the look or feel, so I stick...

    Well, you're way ahead of the curve then. Good job on finding such a sweet deal. Stick with it then and you'll be outplaying over half of us in no time. In the meantime, again, welcome to Shottalk.

    Howdy from Ohio

    Welcome to Shottalk and this crazy game we all love for what-ever reason/reasons. It can be the most rewarding and frustrating game all in the same the same round. But I'm sure after 6 months you've already figured that out to an extent. The best advice I can give you is get some instruction...

    A very talented woman with 5 balls...

    What the .............., first of all, why would you want to learn that, and How in the world does she do it?

    Tour Edge Exotic CB4

    I still play a old CB1 4 wood mated to a NVS stiff flex that I love and wouldn't swap for the world. But then again, thats just me.

    Tiger Woods '12 anyone?

    That figures, oh well? Its also rediculous, both are online, seems they should/could make them work together.

    Tiger Woods '12 anyone?

    I'm playing the game on my PS3, could we hook up and play online on the different platforms? Not that I'm good enough yet really anyway, but it might be fun to at least try !!!!!!
