Re: WTF did you buy today?

I know, this sounds like a crappy gift, but my wife got me 30 Golf Pride MCC New Decade grips last Christmas. I specifically asked for them since I go through so many grips each year. When you think about it, at 11 bucks each, it's really not a bad gift at all. I still have about 10 or 12 left. I'll...

Interacting with Your Playing Partners

How much do you like interacting with your playing partners during a round of which you plan to play seriously, not casually, and post the score to your GHIN index? I am having a problem lately with some of my friendly playing partners who know me well enough personally to feel like they can talk to...

Re: 2018 summer support group

I'm not sure if this is the best thread to throw this in, but I didn't want to start a new thread for it. About a month ago, I bought a new Titleist 818H1 19* hybrid to replace two clubs in my bag at the time, a 915F 5W and an 816H1 21* hybrid. I fell in love with the new 818H immediately and have n...

Re: Random golf thoughts

I don't know how that's helpful, but I would certainly be asking the superintendent for some explanation. Maybe I'm missing something and he can enlighten me. But based on your description, I don't see the point, other than which side of the fairway to play to off the tee if there is not a clear ind...

Re: WTF did you buy today?

BTW, just checked Ebay. There are all sorts and styles of new/in box Contours for sale from last season. Some pretty cheap. Also, there are a few DryJoys Tour for sale as well, new, last season models for as little $99, but it is hit or miss with sizes.

Re: WTF did you buy today?

How about a pair of DryJoy Tours from last year? I presently have 4 or 5 pairs of Dryjoy Tours. Have been wearing them as my primary shoe for years. They are expensive, but worth it. Very comfortable, classic styling, 2 year waterproof warranty, and in my opinion, the best looking traditional style ...

Re: Bawlz

Now, since you have some AVX in hand, I highly recommend you try them out where they really show a distance (edit, oops, freudian slip) difference. In real life on a real course in real wind. If you don't see a difference, then as you say, play whichever ball makes you feel more confident. But, I be...

Re: What's in your bag?

Okay, it's a over a year since we posted our bags. Time for an update. Only my AP2-716s and Scotty putter were not changed in some way (other than regripping)....at least, not yet. But I do plan to reshaft the AP2s soon. AS OF 6/5/18: Titleist 917 D2 with Diamana 60 x5 Blueboard Stiff (Upgraded from...

Never. Can't stand TM. Not due to their equipment. Of all the companies who make bullshit marketing claims, TM has the Trumpiest. They also take major advantage of their retailers. Long story I don't want to get into now, but the bottom line is that I don't like the brand, not the quality of the pro...

Re: 2018 LPGA thread

Ariya is a very impressive, exceptionally powerful young golfer. I knew it last year when I picked her virtually every week in our dumb fantasy league and I think she will be a regular contender nearly every week (and frequent winner) for years to come. From my perspective, it doesn't hurt that she ...

Re: Bawlz

Not sure what they mean by penetrating ball flight but I did hit one 7i into a breeze that it seemed the wind didn't matter. Exactly. Wait until the courses dry out. You will see better distance partially as a result of the penetrating flight. It's hard to see the advantage in wet conditions now, b...

Re: 2018 LPGA thread

Also wtf Usga? A 2 hole aggregate and you just play 18 both times? What a load of shit that is. At least pick 2 consecutive holes so there isn't a long break between #1 and 2 with the players being carted back. Actually, the aggregate two-hole playoff was played on separate holes, 14 and 18. After ...

ARIYA! :yess She didn't make it easy on herself, but prevails in the end. Awesome bunker shot of the 4th playoff hole to win after having a 7 stroke lead at the turn. What a collapse, but she pulled it out in the end. Phew! I liked the result 100Xs as much as the Memorial. One of my favorites wins t...

Re: 2018 PGA Tour Thread

Yeah, that was a bit disheartening. He was terrible on short putts. He would have been in it.

I hate that Dechambois won this thing. Anyone but him. Can't stand that swing, or his higher than mighty attitude about it.

Re: 2018 PGA Tour Thread

Personally, I'd rather play golf in the mid-late morning to mid-afternoon and then sit and watch the 2nd nine of the tournament at 4 or 5 'til 7 at the clubhouse bar or home comfortable on my couch. I hate watching TV during the middle of the day when I can be outside playing golf or whatever.

Re: Welcome to the World of Being "Comped"

I gotta get me on one a dem dere boards.

BTW, will you be playing in the event? I know there are some real players in the Publinx in the two states I have lived in. I am assuming you need to be a certain level index or lower to get in. At least I think that's how it was in ours.

Yes, I can understand how playing in the NYC area can frustrate the hell out of you. There are way, way, way too many sucky golfers in the big city and surrounding suburbs with a population of about 15-20 million people, for you to have much hope. They are coming out whether you like it or not and u...
