Joe Golfer's Achievements



  1. Even when I was younger and had good swing speed, I never was consistent with the three wood. Hitting it off a tee was okay, but hitting it off the deck was not usually solid other than the occasional terrific shot which kept it in the bag. I'm just over 60 now, so I'm not swinging as hard as I used to swing. I happened to purchase a used three wood with a low profile that was 17* loft, and my skills immediately improved dramatically. I used to carry a 15* Three wood and an 18* Five wood, and then a 21* hybrid. Now I just carry the 17* fairway as my strongest fairway wood, and then the hybrid. While I always used to hit that Five wood very well, it no longer fits into my distance gaps. Sure, I have lost a little distance, but I seem to find it to be an easy to hit club, unlike my previous Three woods (more than one) that I have had. I didn't name a brand or model on purpose, as that stuff is very subjective. I would recommend using a low profile fairway that is 16.5* or higher to start, considering you mentioned you are also getting a bit older and slower. None of this is groundbreaking information, but it works for me.
  2. I'm in, though I never do well in these March Madness brackets, despite filling out several each year. I actually already have a Cleveland Huntington Beach putter, but it is not the latest version with the S.O.F.T. face. I'd choose a different style than my current one, which is a mid mallet akin to the SOFT 6 Putter. I'd go with something different, though I'm not sure which. I already also have a couple of other full mallet style putters, but I don't have anything like Cleveland's SOFT 11 or SOFT 11C, and I don't have anything like the SOFT 1 or the SOFT 8.5
  3. The Big Shot Tuned Golf. They are some sharp looking sunglasses.
  4. I'm a big fan of March Madness. I never seem to pick well in these bracket games, but I always enjoy the challenge.
  5. I personally haven't bought anything, but only because I haven't needed anything lately. I have been asked by friends, and I have recommended things based on the website, though perhaps it might have been another golf website. My bro-in-law bought a Garmin GPS based on recommendations from a site, which I think was MGS. A friend bought a Ping Ketsch mallet putter because MGS touted it as the best of the best for accuracy. Both have said that their games have improved thanks to using the purchases.
  6. 1. Carolina Panthers win. Final Score: 44-28. 2. MVP is Cam Newton. 3. 4 TD Passes by winning QB.
  7. This seems doggone near impossible to guess. The forum consensus seems to be leaning towards Wilson Staff starting over out of bankruptcy. I can't think of much else. Srixon? Maybe their Z Star balls won a few majors? I know they've been around longer than 2007, but maybe they are one of those companies that re-organized from "less than nothing" and started over? Anyway, it sure is a brain teaser. I kind of hope the answer is Wilson Staff. That would mean that a once prominent brand that fell on hard times has bounced back to prosperity. I've seen more tweets from them lately about the general public potentially trying their clubs if they knew that certain pros, like Ricky Barnes, were gaming them on tour. It will be quite something if none of the proposed answers has been correct, and GolfSpy Barbajo has stumped us all.
  8. If this turns out to be some semantic thing where the company has existed for ages but was bankrupt (less than nothing), then re-organized and became profitable, that would be pretty lame. The clue says the company started in 2007 with less than nothing. It doesn't say it was in existence already, then re-organized from bankruptcy. Even if it has a parent company that was in existence, that should disqualify it, such as Superstroke golf grips being owned by Tiger Shark, which has existed for a long time. Or all of the Wilson Golf related answers.
  9. How about True Linkswear, those comfy non-traditional golf shoes.
  10. I think Europe will edge the USA in a fairly close matchup, though I'll be rooting for USA. My preference is the USA grip, 3.0 size. Dark Horse prediction: Keegan Bradley is the guy who plays way above his head this year.
  11. I noticed at the top of the MyGolfSpy page, it says that you can enter daily to increase your chances of winning. If you go to the entry page site, the "official rules" state this: "Limit of ONE (1) entry per person/email address throughout the Sweepstakes Period." Thus, adding more entries daily might not help you, since it lists the sweepstakes period as from August 11 to August 28, and you get only one entry per that period. Perhaps MyGolfSpy is correct and you can enter daily, but I'd check those "official rules" for yourself, as you might be saving yourself some time if in fact one is allowed to enter only once. P.S. Either way, thank you MGS for notifying all of us to this nice sweepstakes contest.
