  1. I was really pulling for Rickie before the season, and watching him do so well in the majors this year has been a lot of fun to watch. I was hoping he'd win this one, but it's clearly only a matter of time now. That was a great back nine by Rory though. Good to see him return to dominance too.
  2. Thank you all so much! I've really enjoyed this group of people here, especially those of us here in Minnesota, and I was honored to even have a some MGS representation at my wedding! The support here is phenomenal, and I'm extremely grateful!
  3. Well, even though I love the Pro Gear CG 100 putter, I sometimes wish that I had a blade putter for a bit more stability. I tried a Metal X Mid that was cut to 35" and counterbalanced, but it was face-balanced and probably a hair too heavy to really work for me. So… I traded up. I kept the CG 100, but I noticed the most awesome putter ever at 2ndSwing and it might just be the perfect blend of quality, roll, weight, balance, and looks. Without further ado - the mint condition Yes! Abbie Tour Forged. It's similar to a Callie, except for the slant neck. It's forged, and CNC Milled, and the head feels like it's around the 355gram range. It has unmatched feel and roll, and I haven't been this excited about a new club in a long time. It also wears the BestGrips puttershoe nicely, and a BestGrips putter grip is on it's way now from Zach. Can't wait!!!

    I hate to admit it to myself, but I really like the Tour Preferred, and I really LOVE these.
  5. Yeay if they bring it to production I'll have a hard time resisting, even though I already have a few.
  6. Looking forward to more great LPGA golf this week!
  7. That is one of the best lines I've read lately. I really like that attitude off the tee.
  8. The LPGA is about as fun to watch as the PGA is to me. They're just so good.
  9. If I hit it dead straight, it's probably not going to go where I was hoping. I love trying to move the ball, and the satisfaction of getting it right is awesome. The word "trying" would be the operative word though. In reality, I will TRY to shape shots, but if I'm not able to control it, and it's obvious that that's the kind of round it will be, I'll try to default to a draw. In the end, I get a huge kick out of executing when I'm trying to shape the ball, but sometimes I run into trouble. In trouble, my biggest mistake is not having a good feel for a fade. It's very easy to over cook that shot and end up right. One of the biggest things I've learned though, is that it's extremely important to shift the ball position in addition to changing the swing to get quality contact. I really just like the creativity that shaping shots brings to the game.
  10. Fun place, I've been through there a few times for work. I've never golfed there though.
  11. All things aviation for me. I'm just dumb enough to have the one hobby more expensive than golf.
  12. It's really good to see her playing so well again!
  13. All I know is that I tried to implement the Lee Comeaux swing and it did so much damage to my game that I almost wasn't sure I could revert back to normal. Thankfully I was able to and I'm back to a really solid and repeatable swing. I'm sure that his method works, but it clearly cannot be self taught. To that end, I think that a great golf swing can be self taught through understanding a small bit of the physics behind the swing and a healthy feel for what you're doing in your own swing. We're all going to swing differently, and to a certain extent we all need to learn how to make it work on our own.
  14. How has Tommy Boy not been mentioned yet?!?!
  15. I've got a few now, and they always catch a lot of attention at golf shops! I would love to eventually get the irons done up. Right now I just have the microperf on the driver and fairway, as well as a major leaguer on the putter. Not just great grips, but the bestgrips.
  16. 5 rounds in the books since wednesday... Striking the ball well, though after the long Minnesota winter I'm finding my putting is sad. Shot what was a mostly solidly struck 87 today at ASU Karsten course, with 37 putts... yeah, that's right. 37. The number of birdies that I turned into bogies was disgusting. As far as I'm concerned, playing the same ball through 18 holes is exciting enough.
  17. how did you like the fg tour m3 and where on earth did you get it?
  18. Final update... Bad news. Because there's some huge moto gp race or something in Austin next week, we couldn't find room downtown in any hotels. As such, a majority of our crew chose to go to Phoenix and stay downtown instead of go to Austin and go to the motel 6 20 miles away from dt Austin. This is a big bummer, because I don't think there are many active forum members in the Phoenix area. Now I guess this thread must become a "where should I golf in Phoenix?" thread.
  19. Ok, after today it looks like there won't be much time in Portland for golf... Texas should be totally free though. As such, I'll reiterate that I'm going to be in Austin in the afternoon or evening of Thursday the 10th and leaving on Sunday the 13th. So who wants to do 18 or 36 holes on Friday and/or Saturday in or around Austin? I will have to share the rental car with two coworkers, so I don't think it would be fair for me to go too far, and if someone could pick me up, then that's even more ideal, but that's a more minor detail. I would love to pull together some good old MGS golf! To get an idea of who to bug about this, send me a pm or reply!!! I should add the disclaimer that there will still be the off chance of our aircraft being tasked, but I don't really expect it to happen. C'est la vie. This would be a good time to start firming up plans, if there are any suggestions.
  20. I'll maybe know slightly more come this weekend, but I'm going to have to be playing it by ear because of the nature of the trip. I'll post back as soon as I know anything more concrete! I'm looking forward to golfing with some more MGSers!
  21. Haha, I'm sure Jess would particularly enjoy that! And Zinger, we put an offer in on a house in shoreview, so I'm only getting closer. I still don't NEED it, right? Maybe?
  22. I don't need this. I don't need this. I don't need this. I don't need this. I don't need this I don't need this.
  23. Ok, sounds good. We'll be technically on a sort of soft alert, in case we have to fly, but in most cases on trips like this we never get the call, so I don't expect much to get in the way of some golf. I won't really know for sure until the night beforehand, but I'll assume that we aren't flying until told otherwise. Hopefully we can get a fourseome together!
