    Itching to build some clubs

    Well, the club building itch has hit me again. Between boredom and ready to play some new/different clubs on a very limited budget, I'm thinking about building a few clubs. I made the mistake or smart move, (haven't decided yet), of ordering a new Hireko Catalog. Has anyone had any experiences...

    Kyle Stanley's stumble, Snedeker's win !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Wow, lets hope Stanley can over come his massive choke job on the 18th hole. But major congrats to Snedeker for his comeback to put himself in a place to win. I wish I could say i saw it, but I didn't, I thought it was over, never imagined Stanley could make an 8 on the 18th hole, of course he...

    Latest news on the big "C" and me

    Well, SWMBO talked to the Doctor and nurse while I napped through chemo. Apparently if you'd have asked him 6 months ago when all this started my chances, he didn't think I'd make it through the summer. Seems I was a pretty sick puppy, much sicker than I or anyone else realized. But as of right...

    Played a full 18 holes today.

    Well, I finally got a chance to play a full 18 holes today. I played like a man who hasn't hit a shot from over 125 yards out in ages/ Oh wait, I havem't hit a full shot in ages, and trust me, it showed. From 125 in I was deadly, my putting was lag everything up close on the 1st putt, then tap...

    Going through golf withdrawls

    Going through withdrawls, almost as if I'm jonesing for a round of golf. I haven't played a full, normal round of golf in weeks now. The high tomorrow is supposed to be 57 and windy. But If I'm not deathly ill, I'm hitting the links tomorrow. My last couple of rounds I actually played pretty...

    Cancer Update

    Not trying to be depressing, but wirehairs post made me think, some of y'all might want to know where I'm at with my treatment. I'm momentarily done with the radiation, just taking chemo ever 28 days now. They are giving me another drug that keeps me from throwing my toenails up. I swear I think...

    Help !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!

    During these past 6 months when I didn't feel up to playing a full round of golf, I've spent a lot of time working on my putting and chipping. Well, those two aspects of my game have dramatically improved. But now the rest of my game has suffered, my swing feels all discombobulated, like I've...

    A question of the more seasoned members

    I am faced with a delimina, my Clubs all have stiff shafts in them. Buy between my age, and sadly the weakness brought on by my illness, I know my swing speed has dropped. To be honest, I haven't been on a monitor out of fear of finding out just how much swing spped I have lost. My question is...

    Played 18 today riding, will probably walk 9 more tomorrow

    Played 18 holes today riding. The wind was blowing 20mph most of the day so it was definitely a challenge. I worked for years to learn to hit a high ball to get it to check up or even backspin a bit. Works great except on windy days, problem is I can't seem to hit low knockdown shots with any...

    Eliminating the occasional WTF shot?

    Okay, I've accepted the fact I can't putt due to my inability to read a green. I can live with 2 putting, and the occasional 3 putt. (doesn't mean I've given up on trying to improve) But my problem is the occasional, 2, 3, sometimes 4 shots a round that leave me scratching my head wondering...

    Walked 9 holes

    I walked 9 holes today. The 1st nine I have been able to walk since my diagnosis with cancer. I won't lie and say I wasn't worn out when I finished, and even sat down a couple of times on the benches and sat for a while to catch my breath, but I made it all nine holes, and even shot a semi...

    Belly putter?

    Ok, after much deliberation, more than $1000.00 invested in putters, including 3 Scotty's, I've decided to try a belly putter. Problem is, I don't want to, nor can I afford to buy a good one, I've decided to build myself a belly putter. This is the one I'm thinking about getting and either...

    Callaway FT-IZ

    I was given one of these for Fathers Day. Its a 10º, and has the Voodo stiff flex shaft in it. I love the looks and feel of this driver. Problem is that before receiving this gift my chemo had caused a nasty case of shingles. The shingles did some nerve damage to my 7th rib on my left...

    Bought a 64 degree wedge

    I was in Play It Again Sports the other day. I've been saying I wanted a 64 just for $hits and giggles for quite some time. well, they had some off brand, NEXT? Anyway, they had them on sale for $14.99 so I figured, WTH? Talk about a Dr Jeckle and Mr Hyde club. It is possible to hit some...

    Good report from Doctor

    Just left my doctors office, I'm through with radiation, (thank gawd). Going through another round of chemo now. But had a CT Scan done last thursday and got the results back today. One of the place has all dissapeared, the largest of them is now 90% smaller. My doc was tickled with the results...
