    Garsen Putter Grips

    Tried them out at the PGA show, The elbow in concept was unique but it worked. The are two very different models one tear dropped shaped and the is an up side down trapezoid. I believe I prefer the second as it is more familiar in a traditional feel where the first is reminiscent of a SS grip.
  2. I have had the V1 model for years and a C130 bag. No issues. It may turn in the cart depending on the distribution of adult beverages in the bag but the stability is not impacted IMO

    Riding Golf Carts

    I have to EZGO work horse models that are gas powered. IMO the top three are EZGO, Club car and Yamaha In the last few years club car and EXGO have changed the way the golfer sits in the car with new suspensions that are more independent of the cart which is an excellent feature again IMO. Electric is more right on demand for power where the gas has to wind up just slightly. Although I give the nod to the gas models for torque and power. Both can go fast just how far is dependent on your driving habits and condition of the car. While in those communities you may find that a "custom" car is a fun way to meet people traveling to and from the store. The kits to turn your cart into a hummer or 57 chevy can be done DIY if you are handy.

    Travel Bag Suggestions (and more)

    I'm a sun mountain fan. We started with them from the very beginning, The tour model with the rolling leg stand makes for a super easy travel across the airport as well as to and from the car to hotel. I've been overseas twice and to Florida on several occasions without a mishap. It will store the bag, shoes and the outer wear with ease

    GolfPride New for 2019 Grips

    Of all the grips I am most excited with the Tour velvet model. Never was a fan of the original and complete recommend the MCC4+ and CP2s. The MCC4+ model in the tour velvet should give it the bit more cushion I prefer. When they put the align in the TV I built up the bottom hand who new I was ahead of the game LOL

    Lefty Thread

    I stand on the right side of the ball and do review from that side too. Could be interesting.

    GolfPride New for 2019 Grips

    Like the tour velvet MCC4 plus like model, combining what is the popular grip with the popular size. Should make if feel a bit softer too. Im not sure what the align will do in the Z grip as it is pretty firm. could be the tops in the feel dept. Id have to feel the putter grip to comment on putter.

    PGA Show Is It Still Relevant

    This year will make my 18th year attending the PGA show. We are mom and pop and in the beginning we did write orders there. Mostly because our rural location was not on the company reps travel path, in the beginning. The internet made a lot of the things smaller. meeting the people and getting a read on the company wasn't one of them. There will always be that head pro that might feel another club company or another apparel company is better for the club or course. What better way to get a feel for the company you are getting ready to do business with than meeting the people in charge and your future rep. Because just like there is a relation between you and your customer there is a relation between you and your supplier. To the point because of these relations, I've met several industry leaders and learned tons just from face to face conversations. In fact I'm in the Callaway picture in the article talking to Harry lol. I've also learned more about the products than a PDF or flier would provide. This makes for a better conversation when a golfer comes into the shop. Another way to connect with the golfing community We did YouTube videos on the show (among other things) that did bring in some folks and more business as the year went on. So,,,, we will be doing that again this year. scheduling times making up questions etc. The show was touted as a professional show for professionals, it should be.. If you think for a minute the consumer is not getting in you would be mistaken. You have a picture of a BOY shaking hands with the shark in the article! Nothing is more distracting than a guy wearing a John Deere hat with his son asking what's the best price he can get on a new club while trying to make a relationship with a supplier. I say that because it happened last year. If the show turns to that direction to include consumers, that would be their choice and I hope, as in the article, there is a separate day so the industry professional can get business done, the consumer can scratch one of the bucket list and enjoy Orlando.

    Shafts are NOT the engine of the club

    That's how I talk about it in fittings too
  11. The model shown above is one of three. The other models collapse into a smaller foot print, one is a 3 wheeler and the other is a 4 wheeler. I started with the model that had bungee straps and now have the newer model that does not. Bringing back the straps is a nice touch if on a course with a lot of ups and downs. Outside of that not needed. The accessories such as the seat is a great touch for crowded rounds. A good line up this year. sun mountain carts
  12. When the next adventure is scheduled please keep me in mind. I totally missed this thread. Glad you guys had a good time. The pizza looks tasty

    Selecting the right club fitter

    selecting a fitter is akin to selecting a swing coach. If you are wondering about a fitting, call the fitter and ask them to explain their fitting process. If it makes sense to you then you are on your way to a good experience Ask any other general question that might be important to you such as price, discounts, companies used etc. If they address swing flaws. If you have a good feeling about the fitter then schedule the time. IF not move along as chances are you will mentally fight the process and the experience will be poor.

    Adding length to wedges

    IT would depend on the actual lie angle of the Wilson clubs or the single length clubs you were hitting. If they are the same now then extend it and enjoy. If not then extend and adjust to want you know works.
