I'm not a shoe dealer or anything, but I do have a pair of amazing Salvatore Ferragamo golf shoes for sale. New in the box w/ shoe bags. Never worn.

But whatever makes you happy.

I think once you start getting into the lower single digit handicaps, consistency is very huge, becuase then you can see exactly where you are losing strokes and how to improve.

It is nice to get X sorted. Then you fix Y, and think all that is left is Z. But by the time you fix Z, you find that X no longer works. Repeat until the end of the golf season or you break a club in frustration.

I have heard a lot of good things about Ecco but I just don't care for their styling.

It was Resort Golf Schools in Scottsdale. I went to McCormic Ranch as I like their facility best. I went about 10 years ago for a 2 day class. It was 6 hrs a day plus all of the golf you could play after class. It was a good amount of time in my opinion with 4 students per instructor.

Stance, body position, grip etc. etc. can be mentioned to death, but there is one thing that almost everyone slicing the ball is doing, and that is coming across the ball at impact from outside in. This is caused by pulling the club inside of the ball at the start of the backswing which in turn throws your whole swing off plane.

Here is what you do. Pull the club straight back from the golf ball when starting your backswing. If you need to, focus on something about a foot behind the golf ball and make sure your driver passes directly over top of it or even outside of it. I have even stuck one or two tees in the ground to give my student something to focus on. If you commit to this, you will see instant results.

Once you have mastered this new swing path in your mind, this is when you can safely try to fine tune other areas of your swing/grip/stance that might need some work. One thing at a time, start with the biggest problem and work on only that until you're comfortable that you can move on to something else.

played my local course today, which isn't the toughest course in the world. par 71, 6151 from the tips, 70/132 rating/slope. shot a 66. all pars and birdies. I got lucky with my putting, and a few lucky shots from the rough. Looking forward to getting down to the outer banks this weekend and playing every day!

Nice no bogey round! Looking forward to playing with my dad this weekend at one of the best courses in Louisiana. Never played it, but it looks like it rewards accuracy from the tee so I'll get plenty of opportunities to hit my new 16 degree hybrid

That was my plan for today, but it didn't quite work out that way. I'm pretty sure my putter is broken. Or like, I have a child's putter or something.

Being a single handicapper, I know how tough it is to drop strokes from your game.

Need more birdies!

Played 18 today in just under 3 hours (no one on the course). It was my first time out with my new irons (and only second time hitting them) and it showed on the front nine with a 47 on a par 35. Came back on the back nine and shot a 38 on a par 35 after making an adjustment. I think they are keepers.

First round in 3 years tomorrow - wish me luck! I'm sure public DC courses - ain't going to have much on Palm Springs & LA..

Shot a 78 today. Frustrating up and down round. Every time I would birdie I would follow it up with a bogey. Bogey-bogey on 8 and 9, Double bogeyed 10 followed by a birdie, and went bogey bogey on 17 and 18 after a birdie on 16. If i wouldn't have fallen apart on the closing holes of each nine i should have been 1-2 over par. Was hitting well of the tee, and hit a fair amount of greens. Didn't make a putt over 5 feet, but that was to be expected.
