  1. Colors or lack thereof make golf a fun arena for attire.  Everyone chooses what they're comfortable in and what their friends won't criticize them for wearing.  I wear colors and white pants frequently and personally, I find it fun to see who says what.  Some people just can't handle the comments and wear black/grey/brown every day...  It's a fun environment for a social experiment.  Enjoy your choice.   

  2. There's a gun you can purchase that you put the ball in and select the yardage... might as well buy one of those and use it...    GOLF IS A GAME OF INTEGRITY....   as stated by the USGA who doesn't trust you enough to post a round played by yourself...      GO FIGURE...        18 holes of golf will tell you the real character of a person...    it's all a matter of what impression you want others to have of you...     whatever that is...     GO FOR IT...      SORRY...   I'm a rules of golf official and love the game as it's supposed to be played...    

  3. I think that fitting should be HONEST....   If someone comes in to get fit and displays an awful golf swinging ability, the fitter should tell them that it's a waste of your money to try to fit a bad golf swing,  It defies logic if they think that a specific club/shaft selection will help fix a bad swing.    Having said that, when you go to a retail golf store,  you're going to get someone that is less proficient at fitting than going to a fitting specialist, but again... honesty should come before sales.  being honest and telling the golfer that they would be much better off investing in lessons before spending the money being fitted and investing thousands in new equipment...  but as usual, this will probably never have a priority in the club business even though it might create a life long customer ..  SAD    

  4. I have the Ping g425 driver and the new 0811 x driver...   I bought the 7.5 degree driver hoping to get additional fairway roll...   The driver is probably 15 to 20 yds shorter in carry than the Ping, but the overall distance is probably 5 to 10 yds more on firm fairways....   The sound of the 0811 x is dull, unless you hit exactly in the middle...  not a very big sweet spot for a modern driver...
