Anyone play golf?


#1

I played golf alot as a kid (around 10-14 years old)

I went to a golf camp and everything then i just stopped playing all together for like 6-7 years haha

My 21st birthday is this Sunday the 17th and my girlfriend is so awsome…she is buying me a $400 video camera and $400 worth of used golf clubs :smiley: Her father (my boss) is personal good friends with a guy that owns a golf shop and i got an extremely good deal on some clubs…got a set of Ping irons and almost brand new Taylor Made set of woods!

I went golfing last week with a buddy of mine who golfs and i did pretty good…i got mid 90’s witch i guess is pretty decent for 1st time in 6-7 years playing ever. I’m just getting really into playing now :smiley:

Anyone else play? What clubs u use?


#2

i suck. i use a set of dunlop senior clubs. they are real old and suck. i shoot 100 on 18 lol. i have a top flight driver that is pretty descent but im no good at golf. my brother and dad play alot so ill play with them but agina- i suck


#3

i can hit the shit out of a ball, but putting it where it needs to be is a challenge for me. i have a set of hand-me-down clubs… a mixture of brands. i only ever played 18 holes twice, and i don’t really remember much after the 9 hole… :booze :booze :rock :rock


#4

Nice deal…i was hopein there were people here that have atleast played once…

I’ve gone to the driving range a crap load of times between then and now…i’ve never owned my own clubs though…when i used to go i’d use my fathers clubs or a friends…i can hit the ball around 300 yds +/- depending on a good or bad day lol

I really need to work on my short game though LOL

When i went last week for example i’d hit off a Par 4 hole and get it to the green within 2 shots and have chance for birdie and i’d end up Double Bogeying it HAHA…i really need to work on putting…my Pitching game is pretty good…i actually made a 20 yd shot with my PW from the rough into the pin for a birdie on one hole, so that was very exciting for me lol


#5

haha nice shot form 20yds… yea i cant hit it too far, my clubs suck. on a par 4, ill be on in 3 and 2 put for bogey usually. i can play bogey- double bogey golf most the time. i do get the occasional par on a par 3


#6

i never played actual golf. i only like to drive balls and play miniture golf.


#7

just played my first round this year this morning, man i was in the road or teh farmers field every shot i kept pushing it lol

Im horrible i shot a 55 on 9


#8

I’m a 6 handicap BISHES!

I have Titleist 790MB Irons, Taylormade R580 Driver, Taylormade 3 wood, Odyssey 2ball putter, Cleveland wedges.

I enjoy golf immensely.


#9

i wish i was that good. maybe if i had a better set of clubs i could be better :dunno


#10

I play occasionally. We played yesterday at River Bend, which is soooo much better than Maumee valley here in town.

I shot a 122 at Maumee, but River Bend we played as a 4 person scramble. We only shot two over par for 18 holes.


#11

Joe plays golf and he is actually pretty good at it. He was actually considering stopping work and just persuing golf!! BUt I talked him out of it.


#12

if he made the PGA, even last place makes a few grand a tournament. and if he is good, hell- sponsors buy you a house… one of my best friend’s brother went to the Ledbetter golf acadamy in sarasota, fl and got a golf scholarship, the whole 9 yrds…

Oh trust me… clubs make a huge difference. I have a set of my dads old clubs. All iron, heavy as hell.

I can drive about 190 with a 3 wood on this set, but if I had some lighter titanium clubs with a larger sweet spot… I bet I could do 250.

Haha, I kno, I’ve been playing for 8 years. When looking at a drastic example like that, the clubs make a difference. From old technology to new technology it makes a difference.

But once you get nice new clubs…if you still have trouble, its not the clubs.

lol it takes practice. I always slice to the right. almost always anyway.

I had a sweet shot on a par 4. I drove it 150 from tee to hole and it rolled within 5 feet of the cup. I thought it was such a shitty shot and as I watched it the shot seemed to get better and better. lol

You can say that again!

I hope you made that putt :smiley:

You play a lot? Whats your best score? I shot a 71 last year, I think thats my best thus far. I’ve got a lot of tournaments coming up and the School Team is kicking off in August, I can’t wait.


#18

I don’t play a lot at all. I’ve played twice this year. A few weeks ago and on saturday. Saturday was a scramble outting. So I made the shot, and we two putted the green with an awesome shot by Sambo. We shot 2 over par for 18 holes (I believe it was a 72 par course). and one the tourney.

But when I played solo I shot a 122. :tard

My score card usually has a lot of 7s and 8s on it. lol

Hahaha, nice. Everyone has gotta start sometime.

You guys win some cizzash?


#20

Nah we just won and were told we cheated. lol I think my dads team came in about 8-10 shots OVER us. Reason being is my uncle is notorious for “forgetting” shots to better his score.
