    Practice without facilities?

    I find myself in the situation that I don't have a golf course with a range/practice area convenient to where I live or work. Does anyone else have a situation like this and if so, do you make the trek to a facility that is out of the way, or do something else? Otherwise, are there things can...

    Choosing your "Home" course

    What matters most to you when choosing which course to be your "home" course? Doesn't have to be a course you are a membership at, just the one you consider home for your golf game. Do you just go with the closest to your home or work, or are there specific features of the course or amenities...

    How fast is too fast?

    With the talk of speeding up play, I was curious, at what point does the speed of a round keep someone playing in their first few rounds, or someone that enjoys playing but doesn't want to put in the additional time needed to really get better, from being able to enjoy the round and not feel...

    I am needing a .335 tip that will work with the R11 driver. I'm not picky if it's the R11, R11s, or RBZ ones that are compatible (I forget which are).

    fighting depression

    I'll preface this with saying I don't intend on anyone trying to diagnose me or give me specific medical advice. So I saw the doc today about my insomnia. He seems to think I'm depressed (I'm not arguing there) and that it is an underlying cause of my insomnia. So, anyways...he's prescribed...
