  1. Looks like my comment that you're quoting somehow got hacked. Weird.
  2. Great win, but I'll tell you who's really doing the sweating and pacing... Scott Frost!
  3. And spraining your ankle, which greatly reduces your mobility, isn't making it any easier!
  4. Driver, 5-SW: PXG 3W, 2-hybrid, 3-hybrid: Cleveland LW: Edison Putter: Sub 70 Balls: Too many list
  5. Yeah, those L.A.B. putters look amazing, but there's no way I could justify dropping $450+ for a new putter. This setup I just got cost me about $200 and it's working great for me so I'm happy. Hope you find the right flat stick for yourself without breaking the bank!
  6. Very good points you've made about equipment. However, sometimes spending some money on new equipment can pay off. I was recently struggling mightily with the flat stick and felt it was time for a change. I took a chance going with something radically different and without the benefit being able to try it out first-hand. I had been using a 38" Yes! Sara Mid for quite a few years (it was also something I took a chance on buying through eBay) and decided to buy a 35" Sub 70 Sycamore 003 Mallet putter with a Kotahi grip. This unique grip intrigued me because it's designed to take the hands out of the stroke (definitely a problem with me). The putter I bought was face-balanced which I believed would help me keep better control the face angle at impact. And finally, I was confident that the shorter length would put my hands a bit closer to where the ball is which should also make it easier for me to control (even though I'm quite tall, I've adjusted my stance to compensate). Anyway, this experiment of mine has proven to be huge success. My putting confidence is so much greater than it was a few months ago and those 5-6 footers are becoming nearly automatic as opposed to the knee-knockers they were before.
  7. OK, I think I'll make Tobacco Road my first choice. Thanks to everyone for their helpful feedback. It's an opportunity to check one off the bucket list. Will most likely be playing sometime Aug. 3-5 so if anyone's in the area who might be interested in hooking up for a round, please let me know!
  8. Oh wait, I just took a look at their website and see that it's a fully private club so I guess I'd need a hook up to get on there. Any idea what the guest rates look like?
  9. My buddy lives in Suwanee which is also northeast so I may suggest to him that we try that one as it sounds like a fun one. Thanks!
  10. I will likely be passing through Atlanta next month and will try to get in a round somewhere there. Which direction from downtown Atlanta is it located?
  11. Clear Creek Golf Club in Houston (Pearland), TX is probably the closest thing to a home course for me: https://www.clearcreekgolfclub.com/. Nothing especially remarkable about the course. Kinda linksy and generally fairly wide open off the tee, but most of the trouble comes in as you get closer to the greens. They tend to do a good job of keeping it maintained (although this year has been a struggle with the greens), they have one of the better practice facilities in the area, and the prices are quite reasonable. A solid value course.
  12. Wow, fantastic! I had the pleasure of playing Royal New Kent more than a decade ago and to this day it's probably the most fun course I've ever played. Mike Strantz was an awesome course designer who wasn't afraid to push the envelope. Hoping to play one of his other gems, Tobacco Road, in a couple of weeks when I travel to NC.
  13. Hey all. I'll be coming to North Carolina the first week of August and will have my clubs with me. Would love to play a nice course in the Sandhills/Pinehurst area, and particularly interested in good bang-for-the-buck options. Tobacco Road is one of my bucket list courses, but I know it has a reputation of being exceptionally difficult. I'm a 10-12 handicap player, BTW.
  14. I just ordered the Sub70 003 Mallet with the double bend shaft and having a Kotahi grip installed. Taking a gamble with all of this, but I'm optimistic that it will be a good setup for me. BTW, the customer service at Sub70 is top notch, a real pleasure to work with them!
  15. Just checked out their website and this looks like a promising option. Will keep you posted if I decide to buy something from them.
