I work at a golf course. I love it. Free golf is a nice perk. I have been as low as a 15 handicap, but hover around 18 right now. I haven't had a lot of time to play yet this year, this is the biggest reason why my game is so inconsistent. In my bag, I have an R7 Superquad Driver, Adams Idea woods, R7 Draw hybrid, Srixon 1-503 irons, old mizuno wedges (about 10 years old, love 'em) and an Odessyy White Steel putter.

Golf every Monday and Thursday usually double twilight which starts at 6pm. Easy to get 18 holes in and it usually costs around 25$. Golfing Northview tomorrow for 25$.

Nike Dyno Driver, Nike Ignite Irons, Cleveland sand wedge, Nike Putter. Ball of choice is Titleist NXT Tour , 2 1/2 inch Wood Tees.

Usually play from the White's but do the blues come into play now and then.

I Golf in a usual rotation of The Falls, Northview ( Ridge and Canal ), Hazelmere, Peace Portal.

I will be golfing Kapalua September 20th this year which is 258$ but definatly worth it.

I tell people my handicap is 13 but its really 14. But i do like the sound of a 85 alot more than a 86.
Also i shot a 76 at Hazelmere last year.

Nice, I also work at a golf course and try to play once a week. Been difficult though with school and the crapty weather lately. Currently using a generic set of clubs with an Odessy putter, can't afford new clubs yet :P

I play 3-4, sometimes 5 times a week in the summer. 16 Index, 18 Cap in most courses. I have ABSOLUTELY ZERO SHORTGAME :P I can drive it around 270-280 but my iron game has been really off lately.

Driver: Titleist 907 D2
5 Wood: Callaway X - steel shaft
Irons: 4-S R7TP
Wedge: 60 degree Cleveland CG 14 with canada flag :)

Putter: Odyssey XG #9

On another note, anybody here try the Supertri? It is the BEST DRIVER EVER!!! It is next to impossible to miss if you have a consistent swing, and it is a powerful driver. I want it SOOO BAD

Usually golf 3 rounds of 18 a week during the summer. I haven't calculated my actual handicap, but I usually shoot mid 80's on a par 72 and 74.

Finally got my driver figured out only took me 3 years. I can now say that I can drive 220+ consistent. :D

Haven't been on a course yet this year. Only hit a few buckets of balls so far. Definitely have the itch to get out.

And my handicap is definitely my golf swing. :(

If not for money and family considerations, I'd be golfing all the time.

As it is, I usually get out a couple of times a year. I'm a decent player for a part-timer, and I usually target breaking 100 as a good day.

First off I'm a Lefty.

Taylor Made Burner '07 Driver, '09 3 Wood
Adams 3 & 4 Hybrids
Taylor Made R7 Irons
Titleist Vokey 50 & 60 degree wedges (awesome clubs BTW)
Rife Putter

My handicap is my Driver. If I'm hitting Driver, I can be absolutely anywhere from the far left/right trees and anywhere in between and I play like a 20 handicap.

However, if I only hit 3 wood or an Iron off the tee, I can play around a 10-12 Handicap. My Driver kills me but it's still fun to try and bomb away.

In the summer (cuz the air is dry) I can hit 270 pretty consistently. However I have this crappy fade right now that I'm trying to get rid of cuz it's killing my distance when I start pushing it too much. I have a killer swing speed on my driver (105-106mph av) but I haven't been converting my driver swing to my iron/short game. By the time I'm on the green, I'm already scrambling to putt for par/bogey usually, so I can't really say if my putting is clutch or not. @Teebolio - I'm a lefty too!

Played today. Shot 87. I would normally be pretty happy, but I left way too many pars out there.

I went 46-41, and if I could have sunk any of my 5-6 footers, I could have shot 41 on the front 9 as well.

I did finish par-par-bogey-par-par though. :)

Don't get out as much as I did when I had a Youth Membership, but still float between an 18-22 cap.


Oh and I shot par once and I have never come close again since...

I'm always amazed that John Daly is still alive. What a rough lifestyle.

I go golfing when I can (which isn't too often) but usually score in the 90's. I don't consider myself terrible for someone that never goes out regularly. I could probably break 90 often if I actually focused on it more often, but I don't have the time!

And pitch and putt is a great way to work on your short game. Kensington in Burnaby is a nice little course.

Amazingly on his first shift Kassian would have had a breakaway if Kesler knew how to pass. And he still got switched with Weiss. And note it is "Weiss" not "Wise".

I love to get out there when I can. I have John Daly clubs in my bag with a Callaway sand wedge, a Ping Lob Wedge, and an extra Dunlop putter and 6 Iron. Also have a Chipping Iron and a 7 Wood from Spalding. I play at Big Sky's Academy course. I suck but did get my first birdie last year on the hardest hole. I am certain that it was a fluke though.

I'll start.

I work at a golf course. I love it. Free golf is a nice perk. I have been as low as a 15 handicap, but hover around 18 right now. I haven't had a lot of time to play yet this year, this is the biggest reason why my game is so inconsistent. In my bag, I have an R7 Superquad Driver, Adams Idea woods, R7 Draw hybrid, Srixon 1-503 irons, old mizuno wedges (about 10 years old, love 'em) and an Odessyy White Steel putter.

Worked at Surrey Golf Course for years. I play regularly in the Team 1040 Golf Series this year. My cap is down to about a 5 if we're using the RCGA system but I went down to a 2 using the TEAM Radio Cap System after I shot 73 at Redwoods at that event about a month ago. I play for Kwantlen University as well.

TaylorMade Burner Tour Driver
TaylorMade Burner 3W, 5W
Cheap Callaway Fusion Knock-off Irons from 3-PW (Sad I know)
Titlist Vokey Wedges 52 and 56 degree
Ping Putter

And I will only ever play ProV1's from now on. Love that golf ball.

  • Yes
  • Usually 3-5 times a month
  • Roughly a 15 handicap (usually shoot single digits when my short game doesn't completely suck).
  • Cobra (D, 3-SW), Alien (3W, 5W), Odyssey (P)
  • No advice needed.  My short game sucks simply because I don't practice (that life thing and living in an apartment both get in the way).
  • Cowichan and Mt. Brenton mainly, but I'm not opposed to going w/ friends or my dad to other courses if they want.
What balls do you guys play ?  I use one of:  Maxfli Revolution, Top Flite Strata Tour, or Titleist Pro Wound.  All are pretty old (I won a 12-pack of each for finishing 1st net in a tournament about a decade ago), I seem to play better with them than the strays I pick up in the forest helping my dad look for his ball :P
