Get the torch.....once you use it, you will never want to use your electric starter again. And of course you won't have to worry about electricity and extension cords. I use the Bernzomatic TS4000 which uses both MAAP and propane. The propane canisters are about $3 and last for months. And I cook a few times a week. I light a spot in four spots around the perimeter of the fire ring for 30 seconds each and am ready to cook in 10-15 minutes.
A buddy of mine bought the electric lighter and has been kicking himself ever since seeing the way I do it. He has since bought the torch too.
Impressive opening round and even more impressive at 54. Would love to see him contend and possibly even win, just don't think he has the putter for it on that course over four days. Hope I'm wrong though.hapster said:Go Freddie!!!
I saw most of the round and he didn't play well at all......drove it loose, irons were off and even his short game was suspect. Can't have two 7s on the card and score around that place. That said, with a 68 or '9, he can get right back in the thick of it tomorrow. And if anyone can go low at ANGC, it's him. I could be wrong, but I don't see anyone running away with this one.hondabbq said:Looks like Lefty shit the bed
I have played on and off for the better part of 30 years, sometimes pretty religiously and others not so much like now as work and kids don't allow it near as much. I also have a 16-year-old who plays on the HS team and is becoming a pretty good golfer himself.
I'll echo the advice of some to find a quality name brand used set with relatively standard length and lie, at least the irons. Find something he likes and is fairly forgiving to hit since he is a beginner. Most golf shops will have a decent selection in their used bins and you can usually take them out to hit on the range since they are used with the ability to return them if you want something different. Also a fitting for a 15-year-old is lunacy, other than someone telling you what flex shaft he needs, which is probably regular flex at his age. His length/lie angle could change by the month at 15. If you fit him now, he will need new sticks and a new fitting in six months. Mine has shot up about four inches in the last year. For the driver and fairway wood(s), getting new wouldn't be as big a deal, although you could still find good recently made woods for a lot less than retail for new.
Hopefully he grows to love the game....it is great and can be lots of fun not just now, but for life!
On a side note, mine loves golf as well as hunting. Sounds like we're doing something right :-c
