  1. I'll chime in, absolutely play the Island Club your last day there and stay in Malahide. It's very close to the Dublin airport and a thrilling topsy-turvy gorse covered links. Also Ardglass is on my list for that side of the country. European Club to the south in Wicklow is amazing. Portmarnock Old didn't do much for me tbh. Sent from my Pixel 3 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  2. As long as it finds the fairway who cares what it's called? If you know it and can do it that's a good shot in my book. I say this as a former hooker and current hooker who would love to move it the other way Sent from my Pixel 3 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  3. I dissed the club based on what was presented. Of course you're right, there could be more behind the scenes but I didn't see any reason not to take his story at face value. The text message bit alone was enough for me. Sent from my Pixel 3 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  4. To the OP I don't think today's player is worse exactly. He's just playing a different game. The ball itself is so drastically different than the ball from the 70s there's no way to fairly compare the two. This ball is designed to be mashed as hard and high as possible so that's what these guys do. I do readily admit that the accuracy that the guys from the 60s and 70s displayed w that golf ball was incredible. Sent from my Pixel 3 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  5. This thread is about WHATEVER THE HELL I SAY IT'S oh wait a sec....hmmm. looks like it's Mookie's thread. Mookie what were we talking about? Sent from my Pixel 3 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  6. Not only that, but the $$ now allows for those cottage industries to pop up around the player. Nobody was a full time guru when there was no money in it Sent from my Pixel 3 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  7. And he designs golf courses that reward length indiscriminately Sent from my Pixel 3 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  8. It's a very weird system. I believe it is a rolling 24 months so based on what happened in an event 2 years ago those points rolling off now really matter. I guess in your instance if DJ accumulated a bunch of points 2 years ago this week and they all dropped off now then he's going backwards. Meanwhile if JR didn't play in that event he didn't get any points then that he's losing now so he has a net gain over DJ. Sent from my Pixel 3 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  9. Or even one ball from another in the same dozen? I'm wondering if that's going to be the ultimate takeway, that there are good ones and bad ones in each box Sent from my Pixel 3 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  10. Length and grip? Sent from my Pixel 3 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  11. The upside is a lot of very discounted products for those willing to be patient for a season or so. If I buy a new driver it's usually last year's model or late in the model year and normally 50-60% of original price. 10-15 years ago drivers were $299-$399 depending on the model so things really have not moved all that much
  12. I have suuuucked with 3 wd off the deck forever. I finally got a little better last year, partially through some swing changes and probably partially through getting a Rogue with EvenFlow X flex. The head and shaft are spinny enough to give me a little loft and the shaft is strong enough I don't really flip hook it too much. Sent from my Pixel 3 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  13. Please see my unpopular opinion in this matter Sent from my Pixel 3 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  14. Since it's April, allow me a Master's opinion- Pimento Cheese Sandwiches are totally butt. Inedible mass of gelatinous grossness. Sent from my Pixel 3 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  15. Something is definitely going on at this club. Most private clubs would never have you just drop off an app to begin with, as soon as you asked for one you would be met by a membership director and given the royal treatment, set up a tour of the course and facilities, lunch w a member and GM etc. If they're just handing out applications then saying never mind you probably don't want to mess with such an outfit. If they can't get the basics right what else is wrong behind the scenes? Sent from my Pixel 3 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
