  1. I don't think you can go wrong with any. The SC gets all the attention but RJB and Piretti are just as good. I really have my eye on picking of a Piretti Potenza II in the near future.
  2. Now that I have a few more rounds with the bag, I can say it is a great bag. I'm sure it is comparable to other cart bags. The difference is in cosmetics, the cooler, and the Top Lock which will only apply if you have a Bag Boy push cart like I do. Still usable with any bag via the tie-down strap but when used with a Bag Boy cart, the strap is not needed. As infrequent as I change equipment, I see myself using this bag for 10+ years. Bag Boy, if you are reading this, please add a second towel ring.
  3. I have played Circling Raven, great course. My parents live on #15 at Meadowwood and we have a cabin on Deer Lake where we spend our time when visiting so the rota is Chewelah (I will retire on the course there someday) and the Canyon. We did go up to Christina Lake in BC last year as they had specials. My dad learned the game at Downriver and Indian Canyon in the 1950s so I like to play those with him as sentimental favorites.
  4. Indian Canyon, Meadowwood, and Chewelah are on my list to play every summer when I travel to Spokane to see family.
  5. I can make this easy. If you hit OB, two stroke penalty and take relief from point of entry to a point on the nearest edge of the fairway no closer to the hole. Hit in yellow or red (how about eliminate the two hazards in favor one color - orange?) and take a one stroke penalty with the same placement on the fairway as OB. Lost ball, same with one stroke. Unplayable, two club length relief with one stroke.
  6. Good to see you received the left-handed version of the bag.
  7. That is the beauty of this bag in that the cooler is unobtrusive. I've always taken exception to the "no cooler" rule as there should be no prohibition on personal hydration.
  8. For me, I don't need six cans in the cooler bag. I usually don't have cans anyway but carry water and Gatorade/Powerade. One hard shell icepack and three bottles of drink does the job.
  9. Ground burger and I add mix bacon pieces from Costco, onion, and whatever rib rub I have at the time. Smoke for an hour then 350 to temp. Prefer on my pellet grill over gas as there is less shrinkage (no George Costanza references).
  10. Not a big deal since Costco will take a return no questions asked.
  11. Most courses I play have a bucket of water nearby to soak a towel. Or I use the bathroom sink or drinking fountain. Keep a wet towel with you to clean your clubs and take it onto the green so you can mark and clean your ball. I never use a course provided ball washer. No need to as my ball is clean before I get to the next tee. Sent from my SM-A205U using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  12. Casual game is where we just drop where we think the ball should be, play on, no penalty. Sent from my SM-A205U using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  13. Most balls will come within a few yards of each other. It is the other performance indicators you need to research. Low spin? High spin? Feel?
  14. Had a health scare these last few weeks. Had a headache that was not going away. Finally went to the doctor and think we have a line on what is happening. The worst, thankfully, did not come out on the MRI but other issues to address are on the table. Listen to you body. I'm 49 and have to realize I'm not young and invincible anymore . Really has given me scare and a new perspective on life.
  15. Saw the thumbnail image and thought I recognized that mountain. I live a few blocks from here.
  16. How is Jester Park these days? Worked there summer of '87. You are not far so I assume you play there in addition to Woodward.
  17. Welcome, from a former Iowa resident. Spent one summer (1987) in high school working at Jester Park.
  18. First set of irons that I bought myself (Titleist Tour Models) in 1987 when I was 16 were replaced in 2005 with the Ben Hogan Apex Edge Pros, which I still have in the bag. I still occasionally play the Titleist, however.
  19. Not regularly now but in my youth this hole always gave me fits. Plays to 615 yards but a little shorter if you cut corners. Whenever I hear of long holes in a discussion, my mind always goes back to this hole. Jester Park #2, Granger, IA
  20. The ball switch happened some time ago. But he OPs original post said nothing to the extent of what Rickie has done. Are you saying that the point of this thread is Rickie only switching balls and glove?
  21. This would keep me up at night. Good luck.
  22. Fake. The first "a" in California is completely outside the lighter circle on a real Cameron. From SC website:
  23. Does it really matter? The number is out for the public to see so I can't see him deflating (see what I did) his handicap for all to see. The course, weather, competition, etc., all play into a good or bad day. Just remember one thing, he goes home to Gisele every night.
  24. It does not. I think that time is gone even with using today's carry bags on a motorized cart. I remember the days of using my single strap carry bags on a cart and doing as you describe. The chiller stay put and, uh, chills?
