  1. My point is, who cares what auto part we call it? The point the person is trying to make is that the shaft is more important then the head. And they should probably just say that.
  2. You might be right but it's semantics. When someone says the shaft is " the engine " or "the transmission " or "the whatever" we all understand that they're saying the shaft is more important than the head. Maybe they should just say that.
  3. I personally buy used balls but only local from marketplace. I've found guys who live on a course and the balls were hit in their yard and surrounding areas, no water balls. Cheap, no shipping charges and haven't had any problems.
  4. I think you'll get better as you play more and get used to it. I did. Like you I played poorly at first, often very poorly. I'm much more relaxed now. Some of it was how casual we play with friends. Ready golf, putting out of turn if a guy's not rerady, etc.
  5. I'll often carry 2 drivers, one a straight/draw driver and one a fade driver. I choose which to hit based on the way the hole sets up.
  6. Do most of you guys follow the advice of going up in loft as you age? I've tried 12* and 14* drivers and all they do for me is go higher and shorter. I'm getting my best distance with an 8* Wishon 919.
  7. You went from a stiff shaft (that you say played more like x stiff) to an L flex??? Did you demo the L flex? Hope it works but this has disaster written all over it
  8. White pants look like your trying too hard for the PGA pro look for me. But if you like them, wear them ,who cares what anyone else thinks?
  9. Golfsmith had a 1000cc head for awhile years ago. Bang used to sell a 750cc head I believe and still sell a 600cc head. Banggolf
  10. Not sure what that has to do with my question. I'm just wondering if TM is using the Twist Face technology? I had an M5 and was really amazed at how corrective it was of mishits.
  11. Haven't read the whole thread but does the new Stealth still feature Twist Face?
  12. I'd wonder about the guy from the company that bought that fake Scotty. I can hear it now "hey guys we need to pitch in to get $500 to get Bob a Scotty Cameron putter for retirement. " Then goes out and buys a $50 fake and pockets $450
  13. As others have stated, are the new drivers R flex or stiff? Do you have them set up so the face is open?
  14. So far this year I've played a G400 Max, TM M5, Cobra SZ Extreme, and Cally Mavrik Max and have hit the Cally Mavrik. For me, the Ping was the longest of them all.
  15. Bring your checkbook, I believe the Wynn is $500+ to play
  16. My wife and I are going to Vegas for 8 days in November and looking for golf suggestions. First St. George Utah area. We have played Sand Hollow and wouldn't mind playing it again. Any other courses a nice or nicer scenery wise? Hard to imagine. I know of the Ledges, Copper something, any other lesser known rec's? Wouldn't mind up to an hour drive from St. George. Now Vegas. Courses are insanely priced for tourists. We've played Coyote Springs, Badlands now closed, the Pauite courses, Boulder Creek, Sunrise, Boulder Creek city course off the top of my head. Looking for some off the beaten path courses that won't cost an arm and a leg. Don't have to be top notch courses. We'll likely play one upscale course, too. Any suggestions? And finally, Mesquite. We have played Conestoga, Wolf Creek and one of the Palmer courses there, I think Oasis. Would like to play Conestoga again depending on cost. Any suggestions?Something must be going on in Mesquite Nov 5-6 as we couldn't find a room available. Let me know your thoughts
  17. Agree with preferring a sedan for travelling with golf clubs. Haven't found a trunk big enough since our 2006 Malibu. Will have to check out the Impala (always buy used)
  18. True, but I have to say, not that I play with a ton of young guys, it's rarely the young guys acting stupid. It's the middle aged to old guys.
  19. Nothing sadder than an old guy who thinks he still has game. Hard to imagine that they can't realize the girl's find them repulsive. I have seen cart girls who definitely play into that behavior too for the tip money. And that's their perogative but might make some of these old farts think they're all that way. I once played in a league and it was really hot. This cart girl is wearing a lacey nothing of a top, kinda like a flimsy halter top, no bra. She's well endowed. Anyway she comes racing up to us through this bumpy patch of rough and lo and behold, out pops a boob. She of course acts all embarrassed but I find it hard to believe she didn't know what was going to happen driving that fast over that bumpy terrain. I bet that boob popped out multiple times that day. Of course guys were tipping her $5-10 bills. There were two groups of us one on the green and the other right on the next tee. I bet she made $50 in tips on that hole alone.
  20. I tend to agree. This is the golden age of drivers. If you can't hit these straight it's not the driver. At least not the head, the shaft is more important nowadays. And unless you're totally misfit in the shaft you should still be able to keep it in play. All the heads are extremely forgiving.
  21. If you plan on playing a few rounds get the Prime Times card! It's $250 but with one card you can take a foursome at very reduced rates. I had already booked some courses for the week we stayed but still bought the card and saved money. Wish I had known about it beforehand. For every round you or two you play you get a free round, plus they give you $50 or $100 shop credit. It would be an absolute steal for your family. Some of the courses are King's North, Long Bay, World Tour, TPC, Myrtlewood, and about 20 more. Prime Times Tee Times - Myrtle Beach's #1 Golf Membership : Prime Times Tee Times (primetimescard.com)
  22. World Tour and King's North are very nice courses but nothing earth shattering. If you're looking for just good golf TPC is tough and nice condition. Caledonia, True Blue and Tidewater are usually held up as the MB courses that stand above all others. But are in south MB.
  23. Wolf Creek is crazy and fun. Conestoga in Mesquite is almost as good. All the Paiute courses are excellent. Coyote Springs is in the middle of nowhere but a tough Nicklaus course. You'd need to rent a car for these. Boulder Creek, ( not the city course) is a surprisingly affordable option that is nice. Primm has some nice courses, the name of the place escapes me now, I believe the courses are Lexington and Concorde?
  24. Whenever someone compares walkers to riders they always use the example of "bad" riders. They wait until each guy hits, they don't go to their ball, etc. What about bad walkers? They can just as easily walk down the middle of the FW talking when each has hit to a different side, then wait for each guy to hit, etc. That's just bad golf, period, walking or riding. Both sides playing intelligently walking is simply slower, especially on courses with decent distances from green to next tee. Nothing to get defensive about.
