  1. Red face People watching you tee-off

    I have had a few funny conversations about having a few people watch as you teeoff. My story is kinda funny. I had just switched to playing left-handed at 34 yrs old after playing right-handed since I was 14. I had never played much golf (4 games) and did not like it. After some coaxing I tried...

  4. Humidity and the golf ball

    I was golfing yesterday(42* with humidex) and could swear my ball was getting less carry especially on my irons. I guess this would make sense with the density of the air. Did anyone else notice this or maybe I was hallucinating and having another heat stroke :-)

    I'm sure this thread has already been posted, but I was just wondering how do we move up from being a putter to being a driver? Is it the amount of posts you have or is it a combination of things? Thanks
