re: Recommendations on Indoor Putting Green - tomcatrav
Don't remember exact dimensions. But it is about 15 feet long by 3 or 4 feet wide. One hole on each end. Championship speed (or whatever they call the fastest one. You will love it. I bought all the shims and pins and stuff too but you don't really need those, probly a waste of money. ...

re: Hot Melt DIY - tomcatrav
Nice work!! I would recommend using glitter glue next time. The specific gravity of the glitter glue is slightly higher, creating a higher MOI and more favorable launch characteristics. It also has the added benefit of making your driver look like it just left a strip club. Maybe my favorite ...

re: Toughest Public Courses in Louisiana - tomcatrav
Agree. oak harbor is a beast from the tips. Of the courses I've played, I'd put oak harbor and atchafalaya as 1a and 1b. Bluffs, TPC are the next two on my list. ...

Fair enough. Cheers. (I don't know how to insert the glasses clinking picture) I'm sure I'll make it out there again someday and maybe I'll see it differently. ...

re: Played the New City Park course for the first time today - tomcatrav
There are some beautiful oaks out there for sure. Just feel like they could have framed the holes a lot better, some mounds , more fairway bunkers, something to make it seem like it wasn't so damn open. The par 3's are good tests based on length alone but are mostly pretty similar in terms of leng...

re: Played the New City Park course for the first time today - tomcatrav
Played there today for the first time. Course in good shape and greens are very nice. I was very disappointed in the design. It's basically wide open with a few doglegs around oak trees. Not much character to the course at all in my opinion. I would be shocked if the Zurich ever goes there...

re: How to improve chipping/pitching - tomcatrav
I was in your shoes until about a year ago. I grew up on slow , shaggy greens and always hit,thru the ball with a square face and sharp , descending blow on my chips. This works fine on slow greens and thick grass to chip off of, but doesn't translate well to most "real courses." I really s...

re: Club Champioship - tomcatrav
Swing aggressively and to a target. Putt aggressively and try to make em all. Think and choose shots smartly. Don't take chances unless the risk/reward in your favor. (Hint: usually the safer play is the smart play) Once you choose your shot, let it rip. Most birdies are made with goo...

re: Steph Curry to play in Web.com tournament in August - tomcatrav
Think steph might do better than you think . Have a CSB: 2 friends and I showed up at Spyglass and said we want to play the tips . Caddies looked at us like we were crazy. We asked them how often people play from back there. They said almost never, and the last time was a few days ago wit...

re: Got fitted for irons yesterday - blended bag? - tomcatrav
I started with 3-6 CB and 7-p mb. Have gradually replaced some of the MBs so current set is 3-9 CB and MB for pw only. The distance loss on less than perfect shots with Mb's was not worth the better feel and flight control. But those MB's look sweet from the top. ...

re: How do you use Hess in tournament play - tomcatrav
Agree that it would be nice to have a fourth starter, but I think it's more critical to win the first couple of games . if we can get two tourney wins we should have pretty much locked up a national seed . I use him the first time we need outs in a critical situation and let the chips fall where th...

re: How do you fix a shotgun that shoots high? - tomcatrav
A little different thought here. I am by no means an expert on proper stock length and comb height, and shotgun fit. I patterned my browning 10 gauge and Sbe2 12 gauge for turkeys a few weeks ago and I was consistently missing high. What I eventually figured out is that the longer/harder t...
