  1. Haha! How does that work, with Palmer in there twice?
  2. Haven't heard of them yet?! Haha! We've only had articles and threads about PXG for about the last year.
  3. He differentiated between the "feel" of the feedback you get from the shot and the "touch" it takes to execute shots that are less than full in his first post. "Touch" is a better way to describe it I think.
  4. Wow, what kind of "Pro" would sacrifice all his credibility by endorsing a product made for the express purpose of cheating and then make such a statement? He has no business getting paid for teaching golf. Ridiculous....
  5. This is summed up in two words....common sense. However, common sense is quite the oxymoron. In reality it's very uncommon, whether we're talking on or off the golf course. Choosing the length of the course you play should be mostly guided by the "length" you hit the ball. Kind of a no-brainer when you think about it.
  6. It's an awesome option to have. I would make sure to bring my son to a course with them if they show up around here. He likes golf, but isn't totally hooked on it. He would want to go all the time if we had the skateboards available.
  7. 2015 golf? Almost completely nonexistent.
  8. What could possibly make these a negative or detriment to the game? No one is forced to use them. Those that do will easily speed up the pace compared to sharing a cart and driving it to both players' balls. They will make the game more attractive to players, bringing in more revenue to courses that have them. What harm could it possibly do to the "future of golf? Just because something is new and different doesn't mean it's bad.
  9. Looks like you could make a mean poached egg in it.....
  10. Haha! I suppose you're the only one who hears "the voices" too?
  11. Not as long as they don't twist or slip...
  12. If you're taking a wild shot in the dark at how to mix and match your set, you bet you'll have gaps. That's where fitting comes in. If you kept the Hogans up through 29°, the next club up could end up being a 29° hybrid to keep the right gap. The only way to find out is by trying different options. You won't be able to talk it through and know what works. Gotta hit 'em.
  13. Yea, one girl doing it all would be something alright.
  14. PJ said it. The reverse pivot IS your power leak. It may not be the only one, but if your instructor is "trying to find the leak" and you already know you do a reverse pivot, what is he looking for? I never had a rev pivot, but I used to be pretty steep with my irons, had a high ball flight and tons of spin. I was pretty accurate with my irons, but always faded to sliced my driver. A simple change for me got rid of any over the top I had and shallowed me out. My driver is pretty straight now, (what little I've played over the last year and a half), my irons haven't been as accurate as they used to be and the spin came way down. I have the wrong shafts for how I swing now. But I don't blame the heads. Like PJ said, fix your death move, then play with equipment changes.
  15. Dude, what a great job! That Lynx decal definitely had to go. Nice choice with the painted lizard. And excellent job on the grip! Those Winn grips make good donor underlasts. I've used them for leather wraps, but cutting out your own piece of leather is even better!
  16. Here's a time-lapse. Google search finds it on several sites.http://www.golfdigest.com/story/watch-a-giant-jordan-spieth-mosaic-made-from-24152-golf-balls-get-assembled
  17. Might need to add some weight to it if it feels too light.
  18. Stu, I think you're fine posting that. This place isn't the Socialistic, paranoid, insecure place about a mention of another golf forum that the site you mentioned seems to be about it.
  19. Well... we still haven't seen that review of Barbajo. Maybe it was something you didn't say. Maybe he was about to give up waiting.
  20. Wow, glad you caught it. My mom has had sepsis a couple of times and been in ICU. Didn't think she was going to make it out, but they managed to pull her through. Nothing to take lightly.
  21. I rarely get to play lately and between lower back issues with a disc and lack of conditioning, I'm not generating the speed or spin I used to. My problem was usually too much spin. For chips and pitches it was fine. The ball would just stop. I always got comments like, "How do you do that?", because whoever I was playing with would expect the ball to roll way past the pin, but it would stop dead instead. Full shots with short irons though would land where I planned and very often spin back way too far and end up farther away from the pin and sometimes off the green. I used C-Tapers to mitigate that and for the most part, the ball would stop within a few feet of its pitch mark. Now though, the few times I played this year, I saw the ball roll out when I expected it to stop. Probably need to soften up the shaft I play now, but how can the ball choice affect both of those scenarios? Would you select different balls in each case or change shafts? Also, would you recommend a softer ball in cold weather?
  22. Very good! Glad you got to keep the head!
  23. Our company had a tournament for customer appreciation in August. It was a typical scramble just for fun with some twists like teeing off on 1 while sitting on a toilet.... It was painfully slow though. So while on a tee box waiting for the group ahead, the group behind would catch up to us. They pull up with music blasting. It bugs, period. In this case we were entertaining customers and they were there to have a good time. I certainly wouldn't say anything to them. But I wouldn't be pleased if someone was doing that during a regular round. If people keep it to themselves, I have no problem with it. There's always someone with a sense of entitlement and no common sense or courtesy who just doesn't give a care if they are imposing on others though. But that's the case in everyday life no matter where you go. Sometimes you just have to put up with others. Some people's kids......
