    Joel Dahmen's bucket hat ?

    I am not much interested in "what the pros wear", I just like to find and collect hats. For golf I like to wear bucket style hats and for the past couple have years have been wearing Ping-Boonies, which I like for their relatively firm brim and overall lightweight. I don't especially like the...

    Joel Dahmen's bucket hat ?

    Does anybody here know the brand/model of the bucket style hat Joel Dahmen was wearing today during the final round of the Los Angeles tournament ? The brim looked to be relatively stiff (not floppy) and the size of the brim seemed just right. I would like to buy one of those hats.

    Lob vs sand wedge

    The reason is that one green side swing works for several different chipping clubs, from 5-iron to PW or GW. And one can slightly mishit the lower lofted clubs but still get the ball next to the hole. In contrast, high lofted wedges require a consistently precise-square strike (which is hard to...

    Cell Phones On The Course: Does It Bug You

    Yes, except for emergency use, cell phones do not belong on the golf course. Like playing music, wearing jeans or tank tops, using cell phones on the course is disrespectful to the game.

    Lob vs sand wedge

    Sorry, but I've read this type story often and it does not make sense to me. How can a 25 handicap "do very well" with a 60* (or any other short game club) if he is shooting 100 ? If someone is "doing well" with a chipping/pitching club that means they are consistently getting the ball near...

    Lob vs sand wedge

    Excellent post, especially the part about reliability of the 9 o'clock pitch shot with a PW or 9-iron. It's much, much easier to get the ball consistently near the hole doing that than it is by swinging a more lofted club. Regarding the L wedge, I agree with your commentary that (as you have a...

    Lost ball out of bounds rule

    I never said "hackers frustrate me". I wrote that golf, like any other pursuit one wants be become proficient doing, takes some learning and practicing. That means all facets of the game, including swing technique , club selection, lines of play, understanding the Rules , etiquette etc... All...

    Lob vs sand wedge

    For high handicappers (or any skill level, really) I think the most sensible yardage for a 58* to 64* lob wedge is from about 35 to 80 yards from the hole. Next to the green it's usually easier to achieve consistent distance control (especially for a high handicapper), swinging a 7, 8, 9 iron or...

    Lost ball out of bounds rule

    I don't know Rick Robbins, but (in the shot scenario his quote described) it's obvious that the player is better off missing left (taking hazard relief 200 yards closer to the hole). That is exactly why a player should be aware of where to leave a missed shot. Tour players instinctively look at...

    Lost ball out of bounds rule

    Sarazen, like Palmer who followed him, was a nice smiling guy who got lots of mileage out of telling people what they want to hear.
