    My wife and step daughter decided to follow my son and me when we played 9 after having a few beers yesterday afternoon. I didnít see it but my buddy texted this morning that they drove their cart up the ramp and over the 8th green.

    I think we have to change clubs.

    I caught some guys doing that at my semi private. Called it in to the clubhouse and then the cops busted them for dui when they were driving out of the parking lot.

    Nice shot!

    probably should for a multitude of reasons.....It's my own fault, the cart GPS shuts the carts down all over the place so I turn it off usually, but that's a bad plan for clueless people, or players that don't respect where a cart should go. Very grateful I heard about it the next day when I wasn't tuned up.

    Congrats on your ace, that's awesome!

    Well it’s been a bit of a bust out here in NorCal to wrap up the end of summer. We got smoked out, then forced to evacuate, then it hailed and snowed and we have more of that on tap.

    Booked a trip to the land of Tiki Idols and Pina Colada’s next month and have a few choice locations booked for some rounds. Family doesn’t really know it’s a “Golf Trip”

    Kapalua Plantation
    Wailea Emerald
    Dunes

    Trying to figure out if I can squeeze the Bay course without blowing my cover.
    I'm cool with this, as long as you Kirkwood Bro Brah's stay away from Heavenly when 88 closes- TahoeBc

    Finished the year w 31 rounds, goal was 50 before a late season ski injury kept me off the course for the first 2 months of the season. I haven't played any serious golf, nor done any practicing/lessons since 2016 so I'm very happy w the state of my game. Not having a job really takes a LOT, but not all the clutter off your mind. Finished this week w back to back 80s and my HI is at 12.5 down from 16 at one point this summer. Thinking of taking an indoor lesson every other week this winter to try and make some more swing improvements.

    Fore! Who's playing golf, yo-

    Meadow Club could certainly use it. Itís practically dirt at this point. I have friends who are members who havenít played there in months now.
    I ski 135 degree chutes switch to the road.

    What should one expect when getting fitted for irons?

    Iíve been playing the same off the rack irons for the last 10 years.

    Is a golf store like PGA Super Store or Golf Galaxy the way to go?

    Will a fitting make that big of a difference?

    Will I have sticker shock or will prices be somewhat in line with off the rack clubs?

    Fitting is 100% worth. Huge impact for some, less so for othersÖ but a must IMO.

    I highly recommend Hot Stix fitters. Their fittters seem to stay w the company a long time and are very experienced. HS locations(seasonal) are outdoors w a trackman launch monitor. They have a unique system with every demo club head able to be connected to every demo shaft. At first you get a shaft dialed in with a test head. After getting 1 or 2 preferred shafts then the club heads are attached and you go through the shots, numbers and your feedback to pick a head.

    As far as costs you'll pay for the fitting, a new set of irons(heads/shafts), the new set of shafts, grips, and then the build. HS then builds the clubs at their facility in AZ. The heads and shafts are weight sorted and matched. Shafts are trimmed to give to provide the correct stiffness for swing speed and tempo. Each club is built to match the others so every club has the same feel and performance as the others aka as "blueprinting." So yeah you will have sticker shock.

    How big a difference can a fitting make? Well if you're fit badly now or your swing speed has changed or you're wanting to make a drastic change in the style of head(game improvement vs players)it could make a huge difference. I can tell you once this is done you wont be worrying about whether your setup is optimized for you. There is no way to know until you spend the money, but going to a big box store is not going to give you highest chance of success.

    If you have a consistent swing it will make a huge difference. Check out Joe Kwok and comments on GolfWRX

    It's nice to try a few different options to see what gives good numbers, fits your eye and feels good. And you may discover you need something a bit flat or upright, which will improve contact if needed.

    My last fitting I went in to buy mizzy MP-20s and walked out with Cally Apex MB cause they felt better.

    Most, if not all, take the fitting charge off of a purchase. Irons are about $1200 for 4-PW
    If it's green, smoke it...if it's pink, poke it

    No matter where you get fitted you can take the numbers and buy on your own; there is no obligation to buy.
