Golf is like that... I've been playing about once a week for the past two years and a little less this time of year... one week you'll have it, and one week you won't. My scores swing wildly from high 70s to high 80s, and somedays you hit it dead straight, and some days you can't hit anything... it's weird.

Of course, I'm not even getting into putting... that's really my main weakness. Even when I'm hitting it well, I still can't putt for poo. There's been many rounds that I'm playing to even par with my strokes, hitting GiR and driving it well, but can't putt and it costs me 6 or 7 strokes. Several times last summer I shot 78-79 and missed half a dozen putts inside 10'. It's really frustrating...

Where are you at anybody? Near Charlotte?

I shoot anywhere between 94-105 (depending on the course, drinking, and the people) and have only been playing 2 1/2 years.

I have stopped trying a full swing on my driver as it's the only way I can keep it on the fairway and around 230ish.

2:00- 2:30 from Charlotte, depending on driving skillz!

Man, that's a ride for me... probably farther than Charlotte... I'd be willing though if we got something setup.

Don't have to do it here- I have a beach home in Sunset Beach and a golf course home in Shallotte... and that's only 45 minutes or so from Wilmington

My house is at Brick Landing, but I haven't played the course since it reopened and don't really care for it that much. Rather play RIvers Edge in Shallotte, or Oyster Bay in Sunset.

Last time I played the Brick was in 2010 and it was a goat farm... it had reportedly been purchased by new owners, so idk if it's better now or not. The layout is fine, but it was in horrible shape then...

Rivers Edge is nice, but frankly it's too hard to be fun for me. I don't mind a challenge, but damn, that place is tough.

Never played Oyster Bay that I can recall. My favorite down that way is Crow Creek and Farmstead is nice too... Thistle is nice but also hard. Sea Trail is just ok, and Sand Piper Bay is nothing special, but I kinda like it...

I have not hit a Rocketballz driver or 3 Wood... would like to, just haven't got the chance.

I got those new irons last year and those are the only "new" clubs I've ever bought. My dad, whom I affectionately refer to as "the golf pimp" has a serious addiction to buying golf clubs, so usually I try out and swipe his extras that are usually used...

First irons I had bought since 1988. I had been playing with a set of Ping Eye 2's for 24 years. I still hit them ol clubs good but the 2.0's are the stuff. I'm hitting it like I'm 25 again. Bought a new set of irons then I just could'nt stop. New Driver, new 60 degree Vokey, new bag. I had just bought a new putter and some new hybrids last year or I would have been in the market for them also. 3 woods next year. prices coming down on all the Rocketballz clubs. You need to try the 3 wood before buying anything else they pretty sweet.

The R11s is probably the hottest driver right now that I have hit, but I think it's worth the time and money to have that thing fitted professionally. Just too many variables to change on that club, you could spend months at the range trying to get it dialed in perfectly.

The Rocketballz on the other just has a hosel adjustment. I like my Rocketballz driver, lot more consistent distances even on mishits.

I got back into playing more often this year , and figured it was time for some major upgrades

Oh yeah bout forgot bought a GPS also

I would love to have an R11 or Rocketballz driver, but I can't justify the money on a new one... I got this Superfast driver used for $150 and I love it. I hear you about the irons... I had played some DCI's since about 1996 that my dad gave me and I got these Burner 2.0 irons last fall... immediate improvement in my game, the ball just blasts off the face of these irons.
