Okay, here is a place for the Golfers to talk about tournaments, clubs, swing help or thoughts.

Today is the Players Championship, which I think ought to be the 5th Major. Largest pot in the PGA. The daunting 17th, which seems to bring excitement every year. At least we will get to see Sergio blow up yet again.

I am ready to see some water balls!

So John Daly is playing in the PGA Championship at Bethpage on a cart. Will he be the next oldster to win a major? Can he even break 100 on this track? Bum knee and diabetes. Never forget his surprise win at the PGA


E34 of our podcast is now published. The Sens lay low while another non playoff team makes key moves. NHL playoff ratings without a Canadian team are trailing a cooking show. Jim has some great insight on what makes John Daly tick. https://t.co/z2B8bEtufN pic.twitter.com/N2RcybNLPq

People mocking Tiger for having 31 putts. Shit, that's a good day of putting if you ask me.

They should have a fun fake tournament in the middle of the summer. The NO PUTT tournament. Make tinny tiny sand greens say 30 feet wide. Once you hit the green. You are done. Think how quick golf & fun golf would be.

Putting is so dumb. Who gives a shit.

I'm horrible at golf, but my son LOVES it. What's the best beginner friendly set of irons I can get for myself for around $200? Like I say I need something very forgiving.

How old? How serious? How often does he play? Is it a fad?

Looks like 4 majors in his last 8 major starts now for Koepka (with a T2, T6, and T13 in 3 others). Only Tiger/Jack have ever had a stretch like it. Beginning to look like his relative struggles in the non-majors might be because he just doesn't care as much. It's certainly no coincidence. How many does he end up with?

You want what's called 'game improvement irons', they have a larger top line when you're addressing the ball and looking straight down, the top edge will be thicker. Also the sole wild be fatter, giving you more bounce. Sometimes you'll see them listed as 'GI', most every brand makes GI clubs.

Those Ping I500 you see in the photo by Hamas are beautiful, but you do not want them. Besides having a thin top line, the sweet spot will be smaller, so if you don't hit it perfect, you'll lose most of your distance.

I started playing when I was 12 in 1962 and then when I joined the Army in '70 I didn't play again until 2009. So I had a long layoff and equipment has changed immensely. Actually the equipment is much better.

I found Taylormade (listed as TM sometimes) makes some nice irons by adding a face slot and a speed slot. The face slot basically makes the entire face a sweet spot. For the past two years I've been using these Taylormade PSi 1's.



I just traded them in at Christmas for a set of TM M-4's. I had made the mistake of buying graphite shafts. Since I'm almost 69, I thought I made need the lighter shafts. I play golf every week and go to the gym 3 days a week, so my strength is still good. The M-4 are newer irons, the M-6's just came out, so I got a good deal on the M-4's. You might look for a used set of PSi 1's like I had, they have the larger sweet spot with face slots. Check eBay, make sure the seller has big feedback, like 20,000 or more and 99.8% or better. I buy most of my clubs on eBay, just make sure of the seller.

A popular set that's been around for a long time and you can probably get for $150 or less is Ping Eye 2 irons. They have a large face, probably a set from the 1990's. The colored dots that are relative to the players height. Like I'm 5'9", so I believe I would use a black dot, and there is a actual colored dot on the back of the irons. If you see a set, go to the Ping website and look up your height and color.

Any major brand would work, as long as they say game improvement irons. Go to a Dick's Sporting goods, Golf Galaxy, a PGA store, any of the big chains and they should have clubs you can hit into a net and they can give you advice, of course they'll trying to sell you brand new clubs for $500 or more.
