Re: WTF did you shoot today?

Played my first round since October on Monday at San Carlos Golf Club in Estero. Shot an 86, which I was quite pleased with, but putting was abysmal. The greens were rolling 9.5 to 10 and I just couldn't get the pace down.

Re: Remember the Wedge Guy from Oob?

BTW, wasn't it originally Eidolon? Then SCOR? Then Ben Hogan? Guy's like the village bicycle. Yes, but in his defense, Eidolon and SCOR were his companies. His downfall, business wise, was trying to make Hogan too big too fast. Now that he's no longer in the picture I think Hogan is on the right tr...

Re: WTF did you buy today?

Duke, the Ping and the PXG were my two favourite before testing and TBH, were still my favourite after testing, but I can't argue with the fitting no matter what I wanted.

It'll be interesting to see what you come up with Gavin.

Re: WTF did you buy today?

Thanks Doug. The loft is 10.5°, we tried a 9° head but it was a no go. I actually do have the red CK shaft, 66g. It's not launching sky high, actually about 15 or 16°. I didn't notice any difference with the twist face than any of the other drivers. I will say that the PXG Gen 2 feels and sounds ver...

Re: WTF did you buy today?

Well, I bought a driver. I spent a couple of hours at The Golf Guys in Fort Myers yesterday morning hitting drivers. We tested the PXG Gen 2, M5, M6, G410 LST, Mizuno 190, TS2 and the Epic Flash. I asked about the F9 but the fitter said it can't be adjusted where I need it to be, so we didn't try it...

Re: What Do You Carry in Your Pockets During a Round?

Front left pocket is my phone. I use GolfPad for my scoring and GPS so I like to have the phone on me...on vibrate, of course. Right front pocket is 2 tees, one for driver and one for 3/5 wood, Australian 10 cent piece as a ball marker, pitch repair tool and a spare ball. Nothing in my other pockets...

I hope BK, MattF and all you midwestern hosers stay warm and safe.
So far so good. It's a crisp -4 right now and will be warming to 8, no windchill in those numbers. Looking at 40's+ on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday.

Re: When is it TOO Cold?

It will be -8° here today, not quite as cold as the Mitten, but for this sun and surf raised kid, it's bullshit. As an extra kick in the nuts, it'll be about the same tomorrow. I don't like going outside when it's 45° let alone -8.

Still 7 pars, 2 bogeys was good, 6 doubles, 2 triples and a quad not good. Still at a 22 handicap, it’...
