If you have a smartphone download the swing by swing app. You have to pay yearly but it's easier than carrying a separate gps.

I've been using that. Its a good app but I wanted something more dedicated. I ended up getting a Garmin Approach G6 today. Got a great deal on it and just decided to bite the bullet. Gonna try it out on Friday for the first time

Went and shot 9 today. I shota 46/36 so i was quite pleased.

I fixed a pretty bad habit of mine so it took me a few mishits to really get in the groove. I was holding the club straight as you would hit it as i bring it up and down. Instead of properly opening the face to bring the club up and roll the wrists to straighten it out. It was a terrible habit i got in to and never tried to fix until now. Im a little more sore today but i feel good knowing i helped myself out.

With this "fix" i was hitting dead straight and 220 with my 3 wood. Also getting proper distances with my irons finally. I struggled a bit with the adjustment and my chipping. Ill go to the range and mess with it some more.

Swinging Adams irons with Adams Speedline12 Driver (hate it) and a Diablo 3wood.

DisneyWorld. Where should I play? Played Magnolia years ago. But I wouldn't remember anything about it honestly, and could play again no problem. Thurs. morning is my golf morning. Kinda held to provided transportation. Stick to one of resort courses?

I'm in the market for new irons and I can't decide to either save up for graphite shafts or steel shafts

With you being 24 I would strongly suggest going steel. Graphite will limit your playing potential. Get properly fit for your shafts and clubs and this game becomes easier and more enjoyable. A fitting may cost $100 but know you have the correct shaft and clubs will save you well more than that in lost balls.

Unless you have a very slow swing speed you should stick with Steel. I went with Taylor Made RocketBladz last year. Very happy with them. I would go to a dedicated golf shop (if you have one near you) and have them size and fit you. Test 5 different 6 irons to see what you hit best and what looks best to you. I say that because a lot of my decision was how the club looked to me at address.

Anyone have any input on the taylormade rocketballz drivers? Looking at the original rbz driver,or the rbz 2.

I could really care less about having an adjustable driver, just looking for something a bit forgiving for slight miss hits

It is good to try different drivers to find the one that works for you.

I've been using the 1st gen RBZ driver 9.5 degrees for a year. When I first bought it last May I was getting 230-300yds. Now I'm much better with my driver and am getting 250-320 yds with the RBZ. I love this driver! I purchased it used (no scratches) from PGA superstore. I added the Winn DriTac midsize grip. My driver is not adjustable. I had the R11 and the adjustments started hindering me, so I gave the club to my Son.

Last month I had the longest drive of my life on a downhill par 5, 370yds with roll. The par 5 is tiered and I caught the edge of the last tier and hit rolled 70 yds. I was inside the 150 yd stick at Hard Labor Creek #13 in Rutledge,GA.

I've tried the new drivers: Slider, R1, RBZ Stage 2, Cobra bio cell, Callaway Big bertha(New one that recently came out), Nike. In the video wall at PGA Superstore. None of them would clear 250yds.

Good luck with your selection.

Try both. Most golf resellers will let you try a club for a few days. Taylormade preowned may have some great deals on used.
