            Take notes. Literally write stuff down like distances to hazards, locations of prime landing spots, green contours, etc. I played a round a while ago with Grins, ntanygd760, and Ducati Girl, and Ben and I both had great drives that found trouble. Had we known the course a bit better, that was at least two strokes saved on that hole alone.

            Forewarned is forearmed.

              I liked my PM Grind wedges. Only gave then up when I was fitted to my 919 HM wedges with graphite shafts. The PMs are similar to my Ping Eye 2+ wedges. Great feeling and helpful with contact.

                Playing practice is helpful, IMHO. You get a good feel/mental picture that will come in handy later. Cheers!

                    Good luck! My goal for next season is to get a handicap that's recognized by the USGA (difficult for me to do because I play mostly solo) and play in a tournament. Not that I think I'll win but I just want to play a little competitive golf.

                      Read about your woes in the old thread. Don't sweat it, my man. You'll get the swing back. Step back take a deep breath, and let it flow. To help with this, I recommend listening to The Sword - Warp Riders. The heavy will comfort you.

                        Two rounds scheduled for the weekend, one hard course, one a bit less so. I'm hoping the good golf from last weekend is still here, minus the 5 utterly rancid holes that killed my score, of course.

                          I love my 54 PM grind. Like a lot. I recommend spending some time practicing all the shots you think you might use it for. It can be a touch unforgiving if you let it dig.

                            Fairways Some more awesome Flash?
                            Irons I have no idea what might go in here!!!
                            Wedges probably some MD goodness
                            probably something that rolls awesome

                              Fixed that for you. And not for just THIS wedge. All wedge shots should be practiced a lot. It's the best way for us Hi-caps.

                              Edit: regarding the PM specifically, how far away from the green do you use it? Also, it looks kinda Ping-ish. Would it be a marked upgrade over my G20 54 degree?
