Thanks. Do you find that it makes a difference carrying a 3W and a 5W? I just feel that at this point of my game, there isn't much difference when it comes to the distance I get from the two clubs....

Thanks, I now understand what an "up & down" is. However, what do you mean by "1/14?" Did you mean to say 1/18, so once every 18 holes?

Yeah the other day I only had 19 putts in our 9-hole game. Putting isn't too bad, I treat my first putt as a way to be within 2-3 feet of the hole.
