  1. Thank you, it was fun.

     

    I've actually got the loft/lie machine already. All I learned from this experiment (as much fun as it was), is that this is best left to the experts. Guys like JP are artists with tons of experience, I was just goofing around.

     

    I like the way your blue oil ones turned out. Going for that look exactly. I don't really care if it us uniform or not. Gonna golf around with a few practice wedges then get the Carnahans blued. It adds a personal touch doing it myself, I enjoy doing it myself, and it saves money which I don't have a ton of for golf.


  2. I just looked into it a little. It seems the strongest paint type, powder coating, is what I'm guessing is used for golf clubs. Unfortunately, it requires heating the object and a special spray gun.

     

    Urethane paint emits toxic gases, so it's an alternative, but something that should be done outdoors or with a good respirator. Plus proper drying time can takes up to 3 weeks in colder climates. Definitely not something to have around kids.

     

    That is correct. Rookie does it himself but he's on another level that most of us.

     

    I keep all my chemicals on a shelf nobody else in my family can reach, not even my dad without a little boost. Little brother and little cousins won't be getting near them.


  3. I'm in the process of doing this to my Carnahan wedges. Time iis short nowadays so it will take me a while, but it will be done. I'm gonna strip the chrome myself because the shop wanted an obscene amount of money to do it for me. Now I ned to decide if I want to use the oil or not or just blue it without the oil.


  4. If its courses I've played its Blackwolf run championship course, Pebble Beach and Bethpage Black -

     

    If it's based on what I've played or seen live it's Oakland Hills, Shinecock, Blackwolf Run Championship

     

    If its based on any courses that I've at least seen on TV or live it's

     

    Augusta, Oakland Hills, Shinecock

     

    Pebble is spectacular in terms of its beauty - I'm not so sure I thought it was as great a course as lots of others think but that's the problem with playing a place once - maybe it was a bad day for the course, maybe it was a bad day for me maybe its far more intricate than I could grasp. Bethpage is behind Pebble for me only because I played it before all the updates - it was most certainly the most difficult course I've ever been on and I've played Whistling Straits from the tips before they redid the sod to make it playable for its first PGA. A part of its (Bethpage's) difficulty was its lack of conditioning though.

     

    Oh and I'm assuming US courses here - I'd go Augusta, Old Course, Oakland Hills if we can pick any course in the world that we've seen.

     

    Michigan love. I like it. I don't think OH is as good as is hyped up to be. I put it fifth in Michigan after Crystal downs, lost dunes, forest dunes, and Kingsley. Shinnecock was close for me. I like that one a lot. Some day I need to actually play all these!


  5. We all know what Golf Digest says, and what's the most popular on tour, etc... But all that stuff aside, what is your top three courses in America?

     

    My top two lie a few hundred yards from each other on the Monterey Peninsula. Cypress Point and Spyglass Hill are the most beautiful, intricate, and diverse golf courses I have ever seen. Alister Mackenzie was correct when he sad nobody would ever design a course better than Cypress. Third is a tough one. I think my nod goes to Erin Hills in Wisconsin. It's too new to be on any Best lists or get too famous, but anyone I talk to who has played there says there is no links style course not in the ocean better. You're not stuck in the woods which takes away from a course for me. Pine Valley was recently named the best in America,but simply the fact that you see nothing but trees takes away from it for me.
