Tiger is playing a VR tour stamped 8.5 lofted head. It is true lofted 11.25* and 2.66* open. It will play about 9.5* effectively. He has a GD DI6X that is tipped 1.5" at 45.25" long. There was a pic of his specs on golfwrx a few months ago.

The coverage has been pretty good. The problem was the depth against Miss State and NW State. LSU is ranked 14th at 17.18 per return.

I guessed about 180 yards, but the problem is the height. Most tour players hit the ball about 90-100 feet at the peak. If the stands are 180 yards and 75 feet, you have to carry a ball about 220 to comfortably carry it out of the stadium. The bet for Bubba would be a 7 or 8 iron depending on the di...

It looks like a good concept, but it has a major problem. It will mess up the swingweight (balance) of the putter. Belly putter heads are about 50 grams heavier than the standard putter and you cannot add enough lead tape to bring the swingweight back up. ...

| More Sports Board|| re: How to fix a slice? - unctiger on 7/31/11 at 7:42 pm|
To fix a slice or hook you have to understand what makes the ball start where it does and what makes it curve. Closing the clubface at impact will not fix a slice. It will just make the ball start further left and the ball will still slice.
Without getting technical, clubface at impact will deter...

Then you want to play Legacy. TPC is about 30 -35 minutes without traffic from the rental car place. Legacy is about 10-15 minutes and you will not have to worry about traffic. To be honest I would take a cab and just go to Legacy. It may be a little more, but you will not have to deal with the rent...

Depending on where you are staying, Angel Park and Badlands are just as close as Legacy. If you are going straight to the course from the Airport, Legacy will be closer. I would play Legacy over Angel Park or Badlands. The courses in Summerlin get more play and tend to be SLOW. Badlands has some goo...

Legacy is pretty good and have played in many times. They rates vary so much, and I do not know how much it is because locals get out there cheap. I would not pay more than $40-50 to play there. It is nice, but not worth $75-$100. Paiute is also nice, but just as far as Primm. Primm is just as good ...

St George is 2.5 hours from Las Vegas. DO NOT play Wildhorse. It is an ok layout, but it is in bad shape. It really depends on what you are looking to spend. I think around $125 you can play Dragon Ridge (Hendserson) in the afternoon which is private and holds the local US Open qualifier every year ...

A male scratch golfer playing Kiawah's 6200 yard tees will average 70.9 20% of the time and will probably have a total average 75. The LPGA player with a total average (not 20%) of 74 is probably a +2 or +3 because the average rating is probably 73-75 on most course.

A zero index will only shoot par/course rating 20% of the time while she is averaging 73-74 which is probably below the rating. She is a plus handicap and is probably 2-4 strokes better than a scratch. A scratch golfer depending on the rating will shoot the rating or better 20% of the time and the o...

Shooting even par on a 6200-6400 yard golf course with a rating below par will not make you a zero index. Most courses that short unless tricked out will have a very low course rating around 68.
| More Sports Board|| re: 100th ranked LPGA golfer vs Scratch male golfer - unctiger on 7/7/11 at 3:34 pm|
A zero handicap is only shooting par or the course rating 20% of the time. If you average shooting par on an 6900 yard course you will be around a +2 or better. The LPGA member is averaging 73.75 which is probably right at or below the course ratring. ...

You would not make many cuts much less keep your card. Assuming a scoring average of 72 you would rank 174 in scoring and top 125 on the money list keep their card. On the average PGA golf course shooting par is a +2 or +3 handicap and on difficult courses a +4 or +5.
There are only a couple cuts...

The LPGA player is shooting 74 in tournaments. Look up results for scratch golfers in state am tournaments or USGA local qualifying, and see how many times they break 75. The only way the scratch golfer can win is if he is a tournament scratch (only enters tournament scores)....
