Re: Winter Golf Tip

DougE, you should retire your pegleg and captain's pipe and be a Titleist sales rep. Can I use you as a reference on my Titleist Employment Application? (I have a buddy in my regular foursome who has suggested the same thing. He thinks I'm gonna get him a new set of clubs when I get the job. :lol: )

Re: Long iron/hybrid question

I have a 25* 5 iron, and a 23* hybrid. Loft really doesn't affect distance as much as the differences between the two in shaft length, head design and shaft material. Most important though, is the quality of your ball striking. I get about 10 yards difference between the two, on average. With all th...

Re: Winter Golf Tip

Try hand warmer packs inside Titleist or Footjoy Cart Mittens between shots. Works like a charm. You can even leave your golf glove on. Plenty of room. If you aren't worried about breaking the rules, bring a ball inside the mitten too. Put one inside with each hand. Without the hand warmers, it's wi...

Re: Beef, this Ben's for you.

... I put in a cavity back 3i last year and that for me constitutes a massive change. Ah, yes, the case of the missing 3-iron. Do you shy away from using the substitute or is it a full member of the team? Not just that, it has led me to realize that I should be playing all cavity back long irons. :...

Re: Winter of 2015-2016 Support Group - First "Snow" of Autumn 2015

Woke up to -7 degrees this morning. Yes, that's a minus sign! -23 with wind chill factor. Supposed to be in the 40s and rain on Tuesday, and in the 50s next weekend. Go figure.

Unfortunately, we still have to deal with this coming weekend forecast of single-digits and teens. Hang in there. We'll get th...

Re: The apocalypse has arrived

Loud music/noise-making of any sort on a golf course is a sign of being oblivious to others or having no respect for other people's space. It is typical of the new "me-generation." IMO, in addition to being disrespectful to others, it is also disrespectful to the game.

Team Titliest, and an awesome group of slo-mo videos you'll enjoy, for sure.

As many of you know, I have been a die-hard Titleist guy for a number of years. I joined Team Titleist (T/T) shortly after I started playing their clubs in 2008 or 2009. It's a "private club" available to virtually any Titleist player who wants to sign up. A lot like LegitimateGolf is available to a...
