  1. I think this might have just given Tony some ideas!
  2. In my experience, I found that while most of the GPS apps worked very well, the ones that used hole photos taken from Google Earth were the hardest to see on the phone in daylight. The ones that give graphics of the holes instead of photos work better for me. In that case, If that is your preference, I would try Tag Heuer, Golf GPS from Birdie Apps or iGolf Mobile (my favorite as it shows the 100 150 200 arcs etc. and notwithstanding the name, is available for Android). If I wanted to use a photo based app, I tended to like 18 Birdies. But I will give Swing U a try.
  3. Exactly! Lots of people won't let go of their Northwesterns and Lynx and Dunlops and Merits.....
  4. On any public or semi-private (especially on weekends), I expect 4.5+ hours. Doesn't bother me, I use it to relax and enjoy the day and thank the good Lord that I am able to play golf that day It's nice not to be rushed sometimes.
  5. Would consider the AVX, Bridgestone BX or the Z-Star
  6. Maybe they will send you a nice present this time!
  7. I guess if you can't see these, then you might be colorblind. But somehow I can't keep thinking that the cover will want to split on the seam between the 2 colors.
  8. Agreed that it certainly does seem that Mike did one heckuva job with the LPGA. My hope is that he keeps the USGA on an even keel and not get "influenced" by the team that sets up their US Opens.
  9. Well, I could repeat everything listed above as they are all true. I have been there twice. No, I never played there. Incredible that you can get a beer and a sandwich for $5 or just over that. You cannot comprehend the conditioning and beauty of the place, especially if all of the flowers, trees and bushes are in bloom. I don't even want to think about what their fertilizer budget is. The most amazing things: no running, no idiots shouting (get in the hole, mashed potatoes, etc) and the ability to save your spots and seats if necessary. Because of all this, you will encounter a level of politeness by patrons not seen at any other tournament (and I have been to others); I think it all starts by the friendliness, training and demeanor of the staff starting with the entrance gates.
  10. Thank you all, I appreciate it!
  11. I collect score cards, have around a 6 inch thick stack - all unfolded so they are "flat". Only collect cards from courses I have played (with maybe 3-4 exceptions).
  12. Sunice Typhoon jacket and rain pants. Also use a FJ Hydrolite short sleeve top for warm days.
  13. 3,300 requests in around 3 days, wow! Good luck and congrats to those chosen and look forward to reading their reviews. I was using an R15 until the TS2 blew it our of my bag.
  14. IIRC, Bubba used a Pro V1x to start with, then he switched to Volviks for a year or so, then went back to the Pro V1x. By the arrow pattern, that ball was made in 2015-2016 which would be in a time period when he used that ball model. I don't know if it is a genuine ball that Bubba actually used/hit or if he had his name stamped on them, but it would be what he used.
