  1. So, I was walking alongside the local golf course this morning, in the dark, watching the moonlight reflect off the lake that should be one of the fairways, then another and another; lots of rain lately so I guess most courses are what we call "wet", not unplayable to the dedicated but harder to find a decent drop area from the standing water. I am thinking of inventing the "water club" - a wedge with lots of holes drilled through the face to allow water to run through when one strikes a partially submerged ball. Don't tell me it has been done! Worth a try anyway. So, this gives me an excuse
  2. I fully support what gdddy said, I rarely buy golf balls, I find enough good condition ones that I really would never have to but I was impressed enough with this product that I did buy and once again Wayne came through better than expected. I am sure if I had ordered balls on line locally they would not have arrived as fast as Wayne's product did, still blown away by that. The only problem I have is that I blew out my knee, that coupled with the snow we had followed by the Deluge means that I have not had the chance to lose any of these precious things on a course. Buy the Vision balls, tr
  3. Only thing missing, (unless I missed it!) is an eyeball or a pair of eyeballs. Seem apropos.
  4. Here is my new swing and my new swing coach. I couldn't get Tiger's coach, too busy he said. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8pw0XRAuO0w&feature=player_embedded
  5. Yesterday I thought I would put my sore knee to the test and try 18 holes, heck if Tiger can do it... Put the first X3 in the water 30 yards to my right, hit off the toe; put a TaylorMade TP Black into play and did the same thing. Played ok after that alternating with the Arctic Whites and the UV Yellows. The balls behaved beautifully but I had a couple of wayward swings where I pushed the ball left "coming over the top" I said to myself so I made a swing adjustment and obviously fixed the wrong thing and hooked another X3 out of bounds. These balls do not show up very well in deep scrub in
  6. Man, I don't know Dick. Do I now have to change the name on my clubs? And my golf bag, and hat? "What are you playing" "Dicks" Doesn't sound right. Guess I won't be playing Dick's balls either. The mind boggles.
  7. Lifted from Swing by Swing Golf. In My Hand I Hold A Ball, White And Dimpled, And Rather Small. Oh How Bland It Does Appear, This Harmless Looking Little Sphere. By Its Size I Could Not Guess, Of The Awesome Strength It Does Possess. But Since I Fell Beneath Its Spell, I've Wandered Through The Fires Of Hell. My Life Has Not Been Quite The Same, Since I Chose To Play This Game. It Rules My Mind For Hours On End, A Fortune It Has Made Me Spend. It Has Made Me Curse And Made Me Cry, And Hate Myself And Want To Die. It Promises Me A Thing Called Par, If I H
  8. This is one of the rare ones that is open to Canadians. I feel your pain.
  9. "...a line-up of five game-changing new bags set to enhance the experience and performance for the golfer....and a Sergio Garcia-inspired staff bag...hero stand bag" Well that does it then, I must get one! But am I worthy? I really dislike the Adidas 3 stripes, so gaudy these days.
  10. My Callaway cart bag is just about perfect but starting to show some wear at the top. It has all the pockets I need including a full length waterproof one, separate holder for the putter. My carry bag is a Mizuno, is just the right weight and almost enough pockets but the mesh holders on the side did not last long, had to repair one. At the range it does not like to stand on smooth concrete floor as the legs just keep on opening up until it falls flat but otherwise I like it. Tried to find a bag with real full length dividers but most of them only divide down a few inches then the clubs get
  11. A coloured ball is just that, a golf ball with colour and most people won't be interested in using them. Mostly women use the Crystals I hardly see anyone else with them. Now a ball that has high visibiity in the air and on the ground that has the added advantage of being suitable for most people to use rather than being a rock that only Pros can really compress and get to work for them, that is useful. I have used other coloured balls but I still lose them among the leaves and other debris. A high viz yellow ball, or a high viz white ball like the Vision balls is just the ticket. The
  12. Now that is refreshing honesty from someone in the industry, and that alone is worth the price of admission, I for one along with a number on this forum will be patronizing Boz in the future. This is one product that delivered as much as, and more than, advertised. I wish Wayne all the best in this endeavour; this kind of customer-centric attitude is a winner in my books. And Wayne has been more than fair with me; what more could i ask for. How to turn a "buyer" into a customer the Boz from Oz way.
  13. AW, when you order the balls from Boz, what do you pay in brokerage fees? Just received a bill for $15 for the trial set. This is one of those ridiculous fees we get here in Canuckland. I once was billed $60 in brokerage fees for a $20 item from the US. Go figure, and there is no appeal. I am thinking of ordering some balls direct form Oz.
  14. Played really well until the wheels fell off for some reason, decided to throw away my good swing and top, hook and slice my way around the last few holes. Lost both Russells for no good reason other than the idiot swinging my clubs. I still can't decide which I like best but I have been playing multiple balls (if I go round on my own) and generally, when the good golfer is playing, the Visions go further and are nicer to use in all aspects. The Russells were a pleasure to use, straighter and about 5 yards further, nice around the green, but now they have gone. I finally bruised the Proto b
  15. I did for a while, they soon left my bag, they were fiddly to use and easy to lose, I decided to connect them in pairs so the cover was always attached to another club in the bag. Seemed like a good idea at the time.
  16. And yet I will watch the LPGA any time, no matter who is playing, but the coverage is awful. I enjoy the skill level of all the tours but people like Tiger bring that something extra, and the women are not handed it on a plate and work hard. I realise there is a dichotomy here. It mus be late.
  17. Whereas I, like many others, rarely watch if Tiger is not playing. Go figure.
  18. I think the final day will be memorable, a close finish, the fight back after being "wiped out" on Sunday. Tiger's "return to form". The decision to not put Tiger as the anchor man. Phil playing a good game. Fowler scratching back to even the match. Jimenez' excellent play. I think it was an excellent Ryder. I liked the outfits on the final day, pretty much the only ones I liked. Hang on, I am CANADIAN (and Brit) so why do I even care?
  19. Watching the Ryder Cup today reinforced something that really bugs me. Did you notice how long they took over putts? Everyone was involved in scoping the green, the caddies, their playing partners, I am surprised they did not have the officials checking out the lie for them. No wonder the games take so long. Might as well carry a theodolite. For goodness sake PGA should add a rule, and I hate adding rules, only the player checks out his/her putt and the lie of the green; and they only have a certain amount of time to do so. I know there is a lot at stake but this is ridiculous. On the LP

  21. Fair weather golfing! Where's the fun in that? Actually, it has been rather nice here too, not the temps you guys have had down there though. At least in this part of the "frozen north" I get to play golf year round except for maybe 3 weeks.
  22. I wonder what the MyGolfSpy members use in the rain? My Callaway rain suit is just excellent for the really heavy stuff and walking my dog. It is not heavy or restrictive. Callaway rain shirt for light to heavy. SunIce Typhoon striped pants (so I look like Phil) keep me dry but I sometimes tend to overheat and sweat. The bags do get wet, Mizuno bag was soaked last time out, keep my gloves in a freezer bag now. Callaway cart bag is pretty good and has a waterproof pockets that is full length. Generally though I try to make do with a short sleeve rain shirt as I hate the restrictions of to
  23. There was the Quest CT 24 wedge, or the PureSpin Diamond Face wedge
  24. This article might be interesting, No Grooves article comparing a wedge with grooves against one without: Also some argument/discussion out there re milling vs grooves. Off topic by now I know but... "The wedge tests were done with an imaginary target 50 yards out. So looking for more spin so that we can stop the ball on the spot, what does the wet do to performance? First the Grind Studio Prototype 58 with grooves* 50 yards to target: These results clearly show that wet conditions and wedges will result in considerably less spin 3500rpm or so less making it harder to control the
