  1. I have a co-worker that lives on a course, and mows the greens on the weekend. His son picks balls from the course, separates them by brand and model and year when possible. Co-worker will bring me 3-4 dozen ProV1's, I pick the ones I want, and pay his kid $20/dozen. I pick the best condition and newest version (you can tell by the alignment arrows). I haven't played a new ball in 8 years. All the other comments hold true; lessons especially. Eventually you won't lose nearly as many and golf will be more fun!
  2. I don't like to add alignment lines, etc. to my ProV1's, just a red circle around the number for identifying purposes. When putting, I use the alignment line the manufacturer puts on the ball. That said, the new ProV1 with the thinner lines is a bit more difficult for me to see with my 62 year old eyes. The last two generations (especially '17-'18 with the longer black arrows) were easier to see. As far as the Titleist script logo goes, I like it's clean, classic, unobtrusive style.
  3. I'm 62 years old and in reasonably good shape. I have a Bag Boy TriSwivel with a steerable front wheel. I like that I don't have to push down on the handle to turn. The steering can be locked to go straight (although mine drifts left a little). Walking is the best, for sure. To answer your 1st question, when I carried, I was always a little hunched over; not good posture, and the constant picking up & setting down got to be a grind. And your 2nd question; a number of factors led me to this cart. The steerable wheel is great. It folds to a 2' x 2' x 1' size in 3 very easy steps. It's a little heavy, about 15lbs, but it rolls really easy on relatively wide wheels. I use a fully loaded cart bag on it, probably the heaviest setup of my group of 8, but I like the workout. Here in Wisconsin the weather doesn't get too hot too often so that's not an issue. I see they are a little pricey; I got lucky and bought mine at a sporting goods store going out of business sale for ½ price. I've had it about 10 years, 50 rounds a year, and no problems whatsoever. One thing I would pay attention to is the push handle; get one that has the handle(s) angled downward slightly. That puts your wrists in a more natural position. The only thing better would be a motorized cart, but SHE won't let me spend that much! Hit 'em long, hit 'em straight! Mark
  4. Posted my round from yesterday, hoping most 3 putts is a metric, I had 4! Rats!
