    2022 TaylorMade STEALTH Drivers

    Noticed my home course had a few demos in when I played a few days ago. I actually liked the look and feel of the face but I arrived too close to my tee time to actually hit them. It's a new driver year for me so I'm sure I'll start testing these soon enough but we got a pretty decent amount...

    How many thousands of dollars a year....

    I play with some members who upgrade more than me (usually due to THP events) and some less. I've yet to meet an elitist in the 50ish THPers I've golfed with. Those that upgrade often are usually pretty savvy in the way they do so; trade ins, preowned, swapping with other members etc...but...

    Name A State You Want To Play In!

    Limiting it to just the four states I haven't traveled to I'd choose Montana. It's so scenic and authentic. I know nothing of the golf available but there has to be some visually stunning options. Besides, I'd be packing my fly rod too.

    How many states have you played golf in?

    I've been stuck on 29 for way too many years. ME, MA, MD, NC, SC, FL, NY, PA, MI, WI, OH, IN, IL, TN, MS, AL, MO, LA, KS, OK, TX, CO, UT, NM, AZ, ID, WA, NV, CA 4 of the states I still need share a border with the state I've lived in since 2005. Should be no excuse to add those easy ones, too...

    2022 Round Count Thread

    Got my first two in on Wed and Thu this week. Hoping to get in 125-150 again this year but am off to a slower start than usual.

    The 150 Pole

    Still pretty common around here. My three home courses have them as do many of the private country clubs and the expensive ($100+) daily fee and resort layouts. Their usefulness is now more an indication of where the center of the fairway is IMO as most golfers now use personal GPS and laser...

    Do you practice chipping/pitching/bunker shots with gamer balls?

    Always. Have a picker tube loaded with retired gamers that I use for short game practice.

    How many rounds in a row can you birdie at least one hole?

    No birdies yesterday, back to zero.

    Championship Courses You Have Played

    I think Pecan Valley in SA-TX is the only one that hosted any of the men's four majors (68 PGA, closest Arnie came to career slam). Sadly, PV no longer exists😢 Played a few others that hosted Champion's or LPGA majors like The Broadmoor East (CO Springs), Indianwood (Lake Orion MI), and...

    Which of these 3 would you choose..?

    Option 3. I'd choose option 2 if I didn't have an ace.

    Play with 10 or 11 Clubs - Would your Scores Change?

    Guessing I'd add a couple strokes a round at first but would likely adapt pretty quickly and ascend back to my typical mediocrity.
  13. Daddio

    How close do you expect to get..?

    Trying to get it real close, expect to at least get it on green, most should be well inside 20 feet.

    What’s the number 1 reason you’re the handicap you are?

    Relatively consistent approach game and tee game (albeit not long) keeps me comfortably where I'm at. I'd be significantly better if I seriously tried to grind out scores but I know I won't. It's all about the fun, looking forward to hitting the next shot well, and hopefully winning a little...

    Private or Public Club ?

    I was in your shoes a year ago. I had a great offer to join a nice private club, with excellent practice facilities, that would've saved me real money if I played 1/3 of my rounds or more up there. Kids are long gone, wife has other interests, so I wasn't going to use the amenities much, but...

    What do you use in the 4h/7W/driving iron/4i spot?

    I've gone at that slot so many ways over the last couple years, 3 or 4 hybrids, GAPRs, hollow body distance 4 irons, Utilitiy Irons, heavenwood etc... but I really like where I landed for the last half of 2021. Been gaming a PING G425 4H there. It's the one hybrid, in all I've tried, that...

    What do you view as Golf?

    Same answer as most. Outside playing actual golf holes is golf, all the rest is something less than golf.

    Annual Homeowners Policy Checkup

    Thanks for the reminder, it's been three years since we re-evaluated, costs have sky rocketed recently.

    How many clubs in your “regular” bag..?

    Same here, wish the rules allowed more. When I walk it's with a pushcart. I'd go with less clubs if I carried, but I haven't carried in decades.
