  1. Past hour
  2. The last couple of rounds I played in 20 knot winds, gusting to 35 knots. My new Bridgestone B rxs balls held there line much better than my good friends Tp5 Pix ball. He is a very skilled golfer and our games are about equal. The only difference I know of is our choice of golf balls. The Tp5 seemed to be ballooning into the wind and turned twice as far in the cross winds. He is 20 yards longer than me off the tee in normal conditions and I was his equal in the windy conditions. He also hits his irons a club and a half longer than me normally and into the wind his balls were losing most of there spin and bounding off the green while mine were still bouncing once and stopping.

    I bought a japanese toilet a few years ago that has one of these integrated into it. Not going to say how much the toilet cost (more than my irons plus driver) but it was one of the best purchases i have ever made.
  6. Yeah, got it up to 80 mph today by playing around with the positioning. But that was about as high as i could get it to go. Got frustrated and ordered the new speed radar that superspeed golf is selling. They were nice enough to give me a discount even though i didnt purchase the swingspeed radar from them. They thing its faulty.

  9. Good day all! Brand new to the forum. Can’t wait to get started. I’m currently playing Titleist 917 D3 Ping 3wood Nickent 3 hybrid 3-PW PXG GEN2 Irons Ping Anderson Sigma2 putter Looking forward to chatting it up
  10. As someone who plays as a single quite frequently, I feel my answer varies widely based on who I’m paired with. By nature, I’m a fairly quiet person and if I’m paired up with someone else who is quiet, it’s mainly just pleasantries and not much else. And I’m happy with that. As for the social people? I usually find one of two types. (Painting with a broad brush here.) People who chatter incessantly and boast about themselves, and people who want to have a good time with good conversations. With the first type, I’m not very chatty, just the occasional, polite, “Very interesting.” With the second type, I’ll be much more friendly and chat back and forth, inject some good natured trash talk etc... So for me, it depends. I’ll gladly be quiet, and I’ll gladly have a good time with it, I just kinda go with what everyone else wants.
  11. You'll have to wait a week; the golf channel is doing Masters stuff tomorrow
  12. For the most part, all of the shafts available are aftermarket. There aren't, at least I don't think there are, very many cheap "made for" shafts any more. They're all OEM high quality shafts. You just need to find or choose the right one. Maybe I'm wrong, but it seems to me almost all of the shaft options are the OEM models, not the old cheap "made for" shafts. I'm an engineer and I'm into this stuff, but my wife and kids take most of my time and energy, so I'm not as into it and informed as I used to be. Nonetheless, the fitting is still very important. And finding and choosing the right shaft is still very important. Maybe it's just easier to find that shaft these days, even if it costs a little more.
  13. Black diamond will chew you up, but I love mountain golf in central ohio. Take Dead Aim
  14. I'd be willing to bet bet it isn't just me. But.... I'll take your reply for how you intended it to be.
  15. The toughest course is now closed forever, shocker. It was Thunder Hill in Madison, Ohio. Don't remember slope or anything, I know it was 7500 yards from the tips. It was a fish hatchery turned into a golf course, over 100 lakes on the property. Numerous holes with 250+ carries off the tee, nearly every green had a lake in front or next to it. Some lakes were hidden too. At one point it was on one of the golf magazines 100 toughest list. The dumbest course I ever played is called Signature of Solon, in the Cleveland suburbs. The course is private and only 6500 from the blues, but there are only 5 holes I could hit driver on. The course is designed around protected wetlands, so at least it's not a penalty, but still lots of lost balls. The kicker is because it's protected areas they can't cut back any growth so tons of blind shots and forced carries. Prepare to wear out your 200 yard club if you play here, you'll hit it 70% off your full shots. Take Dead Aim
  16. I can attest that it's true for the Titleist balls. I think I need to move to a warmer climate!
  17. Seems like a pretty good cross section of answers. Some people don't mind a lot of chatter during a round and others, like me, prefer less talk..I think this is why I enjoy sometimes playing alone. It's hard to do at my club because we have a lot of members for a club with only one eighteen hole course. I guess I'll just have to learn to tune out the talkers when I play. Here's hoping "good shot" or "great birdie" is what they're saying most of the time.
  18. Here's the scorecard for Ko'olau now. I'm pretty sure it's not the same as it was back in the mid 90s. Back then they advertised that it was built to be the toughest course in the world and that the slope rating on the card was the maximum allowed 155 (at that time, not sure if that's still true), but it was actually higher, but I don't remember the number. I think it's changed owners several times since then and I think they tamed it a little bit, but ti still looks like a beast! Thanks, Mick
  19. After last year this is my go to ball. You can't beat the price at less than half of the premium balls. Performance is right there. Take Dead Aim
  20. Thanks for the input! I'll keep that in mind. Thanks, Mick
  21. I talking about $300 for the driver, don't know if/when I'll replace the fairway/hybrids. I just ended up with 3 of the RBZs because I really liked the driver and found a good deal on the RBZ 3 and 4. Back when I was playing tournaments, I played an old TM Burner Plus (I think it was 7 or 8 degrees), and a TM Tour Spoon (13 deg), then the 2-pw DTRs, and my Cleveland 588 RTGs. That was my most successful setup. As you can tell, it's been hard for me to move too far away from that lineup. I tried a few other iron sets (Tommy Armour 855s - yuck!, Maxfli Revolution - meh, Cleveland CG1 - thought I was better than I really was at that time!, but loved the AP2s), I tried lots of drivers (Callawat Big Bertha War Bird (loved that one!), TM Burner Bubble 2, Great Big Bertha, Cleveland Launcher, and a couple more Clevelands, then back to TM for the RBZ 2 (I bought a Big Bertha at the same time (2014?), but liked the RBZ and sold the BB without ever really playing it). Right now, I'm considering the Ping G400/410?, Cobra F8/9?, and Titleist TS2/3?....I really need to find a place to swing them side by side now. I don't think that will be happening for a while yet, still time to gather more input! Thanks for all the suggestions so far!! Thanks, Mick
  22. Push is easier on your back. Reconditioned Clicgear is hard to beat. https://www.clicgearusa.com/collections/clicgear/products/reconditioned-clicgear-rovic-carts
  23. Well, I guess now I've drawn us into battle with the Titleist thread. More intrigue for sure!
  24. This made me think of Lee Trevino. The old story goes something like: Nicklaus and Trevino standing on the first tee at Merion during the US Open. Nicklaus went up to Trevino and said, “Lee, I don’t feel like talking much today” Without missing a beat, Lee says, “That’s OK Jack, you don’t need to, I’ll handle the talking today.“ In college during my Senior season, the same teams traveled to the same events. We grew accustomed to our regular partners and the #2 from Bryant, Pace and SNHU were all great. All solid golfers but the conversation was great and we had a lot of fun. Sure it was competition but we were four strangers who actually enjoyed our matches and rooted each other on.
  25. I substituted another wedge for my 3 wood. Would rather hit a 5 wood off the deck and my driver off the tee. If I want to make sure I am straight, I choke up on my driver.
  26. So... nothing better to do through this shut down s***.... No, I don't care that I used the word s***. How about some early Rory Gallagher???
