1. What's your handicap?
2. What's in your bag?
3. Favorite course you have played?

1. Don't have a clue, don't want one.
2. A $150 set of graphite/iron clubs that came with the bag.
3. Forgot the name of it, but it's right across the expressway from MDCC-S. I had lots of fun there.

I'm sorry if I seem un-enthused, but
A) I KNOW I will NEVER be a pro
B) I Like to have FUN when I'm playing golf
C) The only objectives I have with playing golf is to drink, eat, get the ball in the cup eventually, and not loose to many to the water hazzards, asking to shoot par is like asking to have a date with a super model when you are 100#'s over weight.

I have a generic driver, but I can hit it into the next county.  Big grin
3 & 5 "Metals" are old Dunlop brand
7 "metal" is a Cleveland
3 thru PW are Striker "Flow Weighted"
SW is a 60 degree generic
Nike putter

I don't have a handicap, but generally shoot in the low 90's

Best course I've played was at the Homestead, in Hot Springs VA. The home of Slammin' Sammy Snead!! Absolutely beautiful, tee to gree, and all around.

One day they ran out of caddies, I replied, “That’s OK, we can use Buicks instead.”

That was before one party in my foursome fell off the ball washing machine.

Needless to say, we are now personas non grata at that country club.

I have played since i was 7, my handicap is 27 (though it should be about 20, i haven't played in any competitions for 3 or 4 years, which is when it was last cut. In my bag are a set of clubs that my family won from my old club, and they are named after it. They are supposedly worth £600 minus the putter. Favourite course that i have played is Torey Pines, San Diego.

2) Annie lake. (about 20 minutes south of the cutoff on the south klondike)

1. 17. Although that is average of what I'd shoot over a year. As a fair weather golfer I'd probably hack round in about +25 after the winter break, although would be closer to +9/+10 at the end of the summer. IMO anyone who can play to 9 or below year round on a Par 71/72 course of more than 6000 yards is a decent player.

2.
Callaway Biggest Big Bertha 9 degree Driver
Callaway Steelhead Plus 3 Wood
Mizuno T-Zoid Titanium Insert Irons (2-PW)
Titleist Vokey Sand Wedge (rusty)
Ping Isoforce 2 putter

3.
I struggle enough on my home turf without looking like an ass and shooting 90 at Wentworth!  Silly

I enjoy my home course the best of the ones I have played. An old course so has grown nicely into its surroundings unlike many new course built in my area.

No handicap.. no clubs either thanks to the mofo who nicked them from my garage. Why on earth would someone want to steal my shitty missed matched clubs is beyond me when there are plenty of other things in my garage of much higher value.

1. Around 15
2. I bought new golf clubs last week:
driver: Callaway Big bertha 454 titanium
a set of Callaway x18
I use two putters, my old Mizuno and my new Odyssey White hot.

On Friday I am playing the first round of the season at my home course north of Uppsala in Sweden.

3. I have only played in Sweden, but my favorite is Forsbacka GK: http://www.golf.se/golfklubbar/forsbackagk/ sorry only in Swedish.
