    Do you get clubs fitted? Or do you just buy standard lengths?

    Standard lengths and lies. I have standard in my current irons so just went with that. Figure I can adjust them if I want later. The one time I went to get fitted I was 1 degree off standard lie and I feel like that’s probably within a reasonable variation in a swing.

    Also my cousin knows a Mizuno rep so I got a pretty killer deal on them. I didn’t really want to go have someone fit me and then not buy from them.

    Finally picked myself up a good Taylormade Burner driver.

    Had a broken hand last summer so I couldn't play at all and now I can't interlock my pinkie finger anymore. Have shifted to a straight overlap and I'm absolutely killing the ball now.

    Wow, interesting but just goes to show everyone kind of has their own way of playing that works best for them.

    Speaking of drivers, if anyone is trying to get started golfing and is looking for a good used driver, check out Titleist 983k on eBay. Great driver still today and costs about $40. Nike copied it for Tiger back in the mid-2000s and it’s what he used at his peak.

    Tiger in the hunt on a Sunday in a major is amazing on its own, but with 11 guys within 3 of the lead with 6 holes to go is making this one of the most exciting finishes in recent memories.

    Justin Rose is the low man in at -6, and he had to birdie 18 on Friday just to make the cut.

    Man, if Tiger hadn’t fallen apart on those two holes, or if that flop shot had flown a foot further, he would have had a real chance there at the end.

    I know it will sound like hating. But, I really didn't want Molinari to win. He did win and credit to him and all of that. But, I would've much rather seen a more accomplished golfer win the Open this morning.

    I'm with you. We could have had a playoff with Tiger, Rory, Speith and Rose. How AWESOME would that have been. Instead, we had Molinari and Schauffele as the only 2 with a chance for the final 2 holes.

    Not many more accomplished golfers out there than Molinari
