    Shopping for Hybrids - Questions, lots of questions

    I've been having issues hitting my irons for quite some time. A month or so ago I was on a work trip and had an unexpected down day. I hit one of the local gold courses and rented clubs. The set had a couple of hybrids in it and I seemed to hit them pretty well. So I'm thinking about replacing...

    What were your first set of clubs?

    Mine were a starter set of Northwestern clubs I bought at Walmart. Driver, 3W, 3i, 5i, 7i, 9i and putter. I snapped the head off the 5i once on a rare shot that I pured.

    If you followed NHRA drag racing in the 60's and 70's, you were familiar with the rivalry between Tom "The Mongoose" McEwen and Don "The Snake" Prudhomme. My brother and I had these Hot Wheels cars, mine The Mongoose and his The Snake...

    Down and out

    I last played golf on July 15th (Sat.), my birthday. The next day I had a knot in my lower back, right side. No biggie, I've had that before, it'll be better in a couple of days. That Monday, I started having pain in my right thigh whenever standing or walking. I had a couple of chiropractor...

    1000 Posts

    I never thought that I had found a community that I would be so fond of when I read a review of Taylormade Rocketbladez irons a little over two years ago. But after spending a little time reading here and then participating in the 2015 Bridgestone Invitational in Kansas City, I was hooked. I'm...

    Evaluate My Swing - 5 Iron

    I've always struggled with mid-long irons off the tee and on approach shots. I took this video yesterday of me hitting my 5 iron. One thing that I notice immediately is that my first move is in my hands/wrist. I've watched other videos and noticed on most of them that the wrist cock doesn't...

    Any professional tour, how many have you attended? Myself, I have only been one time. That was back when the Senior Tour was called the Senior Tour and it was at Loch Lloyd CC in Kansas City. I spent the majority of the day following a group that included Lee Trevino and Chi Chi Rodriguez...

    Lessons start this week

    My wife bought me a series of golf lessons for Christmas and this Wednesday is my first lesson. I am self taught and have been playing for 20+ years without a single lesson. I generally shoot in the mid 90s to low 100s. Personal best is 86 on a par 70 course. My biggest weakness is my approach...

    Club Fitting Questions

    I've searched through some old threads, but haven't really answered my questions. I purchased a set of TM Rocketbladz irons (4i-AW) online back in March. I've played them a couple of times and several range sessions and am pretty happy with them overall. But now that I've been a member here...

    Hello from Kansas City

    Hello all. This is my first post here. I'm in Kansas City and found this forum while reading reviews on some irons I was interested in. I'm self-taught and have been golfing for around 25 years. I don't have a handicap, but usually score in the mid-low 90's, depending on how often I play. The...
