It always scares me to use those online services. I always wonder if they really are locking in the tee time.

I don't know if they have made it south of ATL, but I have had a 100% success rate with Golfnow.com. I am playing for $22 and $16 dollars this weekend at $40 courses, and get a free round for every 10 rounds booked. You get credit for every tee time that you book, so if you book the foursome on your account, you get credit for four rounds booked.

The only down side to the cheap prices is that you usually have to play in the afternoon. In Lex that is not all bad, but in GA even some spring afternoons are just too brutal.

Except for in July and August, I don't feel heat when I'm on the golf course.

Down here you are forced to either get used to it or move.

Probably the biggest reason I could never move back.

How high should I bid on this driver? I'm a beginner in my 2nd season, old clubs and old woods.

Honestly, I would advise you not to buy that at all. I've never seen you swing a club, so take this FWIW . . .You probably are going to need more loft than that. I'd recommend something closer to 10-11 degree range.

Great advice. Those 8.5s are bears to hit.

I have only test driven those. Of course I don't have your God given ability. I have found that 9.5s are best for me. When I go further down, it seems like some of my "natural draw" off the tee is straightened.

I wish my "God given ability" would allow me to hook it occasionally. I couldn't draw my driver consistently if my life depended on it. The shaft in my Driver is probably too heavy and the loft too low, but I kind of like it because I pretty much can go after it and know that the left side of the golf course is not in play off the tee for me.

Speaking of drivers, what is everyone swinging right now? I am using a TM R5 dual TP right now. I am just starting to try and play more thane twice a year again and have been impressed with the driver. VERY long and forgiving.

It certainly adds a little distance for me when it is hitting on all cylinders. Right now I am hitting a Taylor Made 360 with an extra stiff shaft.
