  1. Founder's Club Fresh Metal Irons ... wow!

    I just picked a set up 3-PW from my local GolfTown, and I must say I am very impressed so far with the performance of these clubs! Very forgiving and the fit and finish is top-notch.

  2. Does your first tee shot reflect your game to be?

    I find the first shot off tee #1 sets the mood for the whole game. Bad first shot = Bad round Great first shot = Great round

  4. Have you met your goals yet?

    Just wondering how everyone is fairing with the goals they set themselves in the "goals for the season thread". mine were: 1) Consistantly break 100. Done, last 5 rounds all under 100 :). 2) Shoot at least 1 score in the 90-95 range.

    The last time I shot a 41 on the front at Mountain Creek I started the back 9 with 5 bogeys. Today I shot a 42 and was determined not to do the same thing. I got a par on 4 of the first 5 holes on the back (1 bogey). So far, so good. I then bogeyed what I consider 3 easy enough to par holes. ...
