    My wife went all out on golf this year. Time to see how far I can hit a ball out of play.

    Got a couple of golf related things for Christmas: Visio golf start line trainer - will be using to work on face angle for my putts to help ensure that I am starting the ball online. Putter - My Mom gave me whatever putter I want; probably going to be a EvnRoll 8.3 when it comes out.

    Those are some good looking speed sticks MPR, I have a feeling Kirke is going to get some major enjoyment out of them. I did my second session this evening after the Christmas festivities and hit a couple of personal bests. My fastest swing with my heaviest club hit 108 mph, bettering my previous record by 1 mph. I also set a new best with my lightest club, hitting 116 mph during my last three swings. They were 111, 111, 116. I'm going to get the opportunity to play tomorrow, after all the recent rain, it's going to be nice to be able to hit the course. I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas.

    Nope, but my kids got me some great socks that will work nicely at work and on the course. I bought my little one a box of three dozen Volvik Vivids. Extra obnoxious colors; she loves them. If the weather stays nice this week, I'll take her out so they can see some action. Sent from my SM-J727VPP using MyGolfSpy mobile app

    I know this is repeated on GC on occasion, but I just love watching the game played by some of the classic players back in the day! A few things pop out at me: #1. Gene Sarazen's natty suit! 2. The less than museum perfection course and green conditions. 3. The respectfulness of the gallery - eg. no shouting, no insults and .. no ropes! The instructional tips from the players after was also pretty neat. In the Gary Player - Peter Thomson match, Player explained and demonstrated three different bunker shots, while Thomson have a great tip on setup and aim. Anyone else watching and enjoying?

    Been watching it some too. I enjoy the old days. Not so much the golf as the people. Friendly spirits, snappy dress, sincere dialog, etc. Hey look... right now old Plaid is getting ready to play. Enjoy.

    The only golf related goodies were eight pair of really nice golf socks for spring. A man can't have enough quality socks

    The only golf related item I received was a chipping net. I wanted that and a batch of Almost Balls so I could practice in the basement. Guess I’ll have to get my own. Did get an airsoft pistol, a Walter P99 replica. With the exception of orange tip on the end of the barrel, it’s very realistic. Even down to the weight and rails. The squirrels and I are going to war. I’m not allowed to kill them but I can smack them hard [emoji16] It’s my favorite present (heehee) Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy

    I've finally broken the family (except SIL) from buying me any golf related stuff. The SIL got me a couple doz Chrome Soft this year.

    No golf stuff. I save that for my birthday. But I do have some gray whiskers in my 5 day shadow... [emoji33] Wonder if Santa will crash in my yard next year. Will it be Tim Allen?

    No golf stuff for me since I got a few other things I actually needed. Christmas is more about the little ones these days. I have, however, been REALLY enjoying reading the replies to this tweet. Solid gold. That potty putter seems to have been a hit this year.

    I don't know yet but there is an oddly long, skinny, suspicious box under the tree that might (or might not) contain a golf club. We shall see.

    I gave myself a new Ping G400 driver which replaced my G Driver that I gifted to my brother. The PGA Tour Super Store is a great place to test clubs. I went in on a Thursday evening when they were super slow. A very professional young man set me up in a hitting bay. We started with the Callaway Subzero 9 degree stiff shaft and ended up with the Ping G400 SFT 10 degree with stiff Tour Shaft. From a “feel” perspective the Callaway was awesome but from data driven performance perspective the G400 performed much better. Along the way we tried several shafts in each driver before finally settling on the Ping Tour. My final numbers were (I’m 53 y/o): 95 mph swing speed, 139 mph ball speed, launch angle 16 degrees, carry distance 242, total distance 259. FYI...... ball speeds averaged 9 mph higher in the Ping over the Callaway. Everything changed when I took the driver to the course. To be honest it is crazy wet in my neck of the woods so the performance was a little skewed by the conditions of sub 50 degree temperatures coupled with fairways that allowed for zero roll. However the performance was so different from the Trackman statistics that I wondered about the integrity of its settings. As a matter of fact I left the course very frustrated after just 12 holes and numerous lost balls. After a two day hiatus, a 10 degree bump in temperatures and a driver adjustment to 11 degrees I headed back out to try my luck again. This time I hit 12 of 14 fairways with an average carry distance of 244 yards. Although the course dried out a bit roll was still nominal at best. I was and still am hesitant about the stiff shaft. My swing speed is at the higher end of a Regular Flex shaft and several mph short of what’s normally recommended for a Still Flex. Performance was much better this time out and yards gained in comparison to my Ping G with Regular Flex Shaft was considerable in regards to carry distance. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy

    Nothing. I tell my daughters every year not to spend a dime on me.... same for everyone else. I can buy my own stuff, golf or otherwise. I give to my daughters and grandchildren. I prefer to keep Christmas about what it's supposed to be about. My greatest gifts are being with family, friends and recognizing the reason for the season, so to speak. Not trying to put a damper on this thread.... it's just how I feel about Christmas.

    I am guessing that I don't get anything golf related for Christmas. I did however get my Brother in Law the Rotex wedge he has been talking about for 4 years now. He is too cheap to buy it himself and I am tired of hearing about him wanting it, so I figured maybe I will get some peace on the course now that he will have it!
