TWEET OF THE WEEK
@jenny_suh "Watching TSA test my entire golf bag & clubs for explosives...taking precautions is always great but good luck getting that bag closed!" – LPGA Tour player Jenny Suh
@PirettiGolf Putter I made for Jeff Bagwell of the Houston Astros. Great guy. http://lockerz.com/s/100115210
@Luke_Donald Getting in a little 'extra' practice for next week!! http://yfrog.com/hszb1npej
@Luke_Donald It's an About Golf simulator. Pretty realistic actually. Would take this shot on Sunday!! http://yfrog.us/5bvkaz
@nikegolf Glover putted great w/ the Method! He said "Nike did some work with me on my clubs and putter this wk so everything was right."
@LeeJanzen Can someone give these guys (Lucas Glover and Jonathan Byrd) a glove. Not often you see gloveless players much less both in a playoff
Mike Fay, PGA
@mikefaygolf I have found that using the bounce correctly can really improve your short game
@mikefaygolf When you open the face more on your wedge, the more bounce you use.
@mikefaygolf Question about 60 degree wedges: I think 60 degree wedges should be used in only a few situations: close to the green
Joe Leenheer, PGA
@JLeenheerPGA #golfun tip: go get yourself a @nikegolf method putter and start making more putts like Lucas Glover! Hope mine does the same tomorrow!
Richard S Johnson
@RStanleyJohnson Can't find a driver that I can hit straight. Can't believe my gamer broke. Rest of game is pretty good. 2 weeks off now. NICE!!!!

@HankDHaney I like it, great for stretching u and your swing out RT @GR8_GLFR: @HankDHaney What's your opinion on the Heavy Power Hitter?
@HankDHaney Too small u hook, too large u tend to slice RT @stevejensen83: @HankDHaney what is the result of too big/small grips?
@HankDHaney Grips are all personal preference, having some cord in the grips helps in the rain or if your hands sweat a lot, do make sure the size is rt
@HankDHaney Worth a tryRT @MarkieMark_89: @HankDHaney what do you think about big putter grips?
@HankDHaney Get hybrids RT @mdesrochers12: @HankDHaney i have problems hitting long irons lately. Any tips?

@HankDHaney No of course not RT @Mikezzz33: @HankDHaney Why should golfers get new irons? If they hit current ones great?
@HankDHaney U can get last yrs models cheap RT @davek13: @HankDHaney were not all made of money. When you say new does that mean new to you or new new
@HankDHaney Technology moves fast RT @SmoothTorquer: @HankDHaney do drivers get tired that quickly or technology moves that fast?
@HankDHaney No they r good RT @babydraw: @billa5g wow ! My AP2's are just three years old. Do I need to plan to replace them this year my already?
@HankDHaney I said every 5 yrs, new grooves new technology RT @joshhurry: why is buying new irons every couple years so important?
