It is 12:43am and I’m still up.  I’m a bit wired after attending the first college football game of the year here, my Utah Utes vs the tougher than expected Montana State Bobcats.  Utes win 27-10.  Not sure that will be the outcome next week though, as the Utes travel to USC.  The team has a lot of work to do.  Didn’t look like they were firing on even half their cylinders.  But I digress…


I thought the answer to my struggles was to put more forgiving irons in the bag. My greens in regulation has been almost as bad as Tiger Woods’s driving accuracy… almost. That is bad.

Thanks to a conversation with John Duval yesterday I actually went the other way and switched from my Hogan irons to my MacGregor blades today. They should be much more difficult to hit but they didn’t seem that way at all. Amazingly, the iron play was greatly improved.  Not sure why I played better today, but I did.  74 and $$$.  The ball was going straight at the flag on my iron shots, which was quite a surprise and improvement.

I’ll stick with the MacGregor blades for now.  I can think of a great golfer who played MacGregor blades. Can you?

Below is a shot of the range this morning at Wasatch Mountain State Park.  Not too shabby.  Should practice more.
