    When is a sand wedge not a sand wedge??

    Went and visited my Dad last week and got to play a couple of rounds with him and my uncle. Was telling my Dad how much I struggle with bunker shots and he takes a look at my sand wedge and tells me "That's not a sand wedge". I have a TM XFt 58 degree with an 8 bounce that I "thought" was my...

    Driver dilemma- distance vs accuracy?

    A few weeks ago I developed a long crack where the face of my Mizuno JPX-800 driver is attached to the head. Contacted Mizuno and they asked me to send it in to them to see if I can have it replaced under warranty. Great customer service by the way. Had to go back to my old driver, 9.0 degree...

    Fairway Bunkers - How Do You Score Them?

    I have been using GolfShot and Oob Golf to track my scores for quite some time and have been wondering about a scoring issue that comes up often. Question: When you hit your tee shot into a fairway bunker, have you hit the fairway? Reason for asking: On the GolfShot scoring screen there are...

    Mizuno makes golf balls??

    Played in a charity scramble tournament a few weeks ago and one of our foursome was playing a Mizuno golf ball. I had no idea that Mizuno even made balls! He said he got them off of eBay. I checked one out while we were on a green and it looked to be a very nice ball. Didn't get a chance to hit...

    Swing Speed - Irons or Driver?

    Question: When you hear about a ball being best for certain swing speeds, which swing speed are they referring to, your irons or driver? This occurred to me when I was hitting in a demo bay last week. My irons swing speed is 85-90 while my driver speed is 104 - 106. That's a pretty big...

    Standing Too Far Away From The Ball With My Wedges - A Cure?

    Went to the range yesterday wanting to work on just one swing thought for the day - getting a proper weight shift to my left side with all of my clubs and holding my finish (I guess that's two thoughts but they go together). When I was getting my range balls I saw a roll of Mizuno impact tape...

    Ever have one of "those" range sessions??

    Went to the range last Sunday and was blasting my driver long and straight. Incredibly straight as a matter of fact, as in 9 out of 10 right down the pipe with a beautiful trajectory. Back to the range last night and 1 out of 10 is straight and the remaining 9 are a combination of pulls, hooks...

    Myrtle Beach Free Golf For A Year?

    I keep hearing on ESPN Radio about a contest that is offering free golf for a year at Myrtle Beach. You get one free round per month for 2 and airfare, car rental, lodging and golf is paid for! I swear they said to go to www.mygolfmyrtle.com to register but I've tried and there is no such web...

    SkyCaddie SG5....Thoughts??

    So the inlaws gave me a SkyCaddie SG5 as a Christmas gift. Haven't had a chance to use it on the course yet but I have already got it set up and paid the money for all US courses. Already did a search on the forums here and found a little bit of info on SkyCaddie as a whole. I realize they are...

    Fat and all that...

    Been having some problems lately with hitting the ball fat with my irons and wedges. Probably costing me about 10 strokes a round. Just wondering what some of the best drills are for eliminating this tendency? Thanks for the help!!
