  1. I haven't tried it yet. I'm not a fan of Yuengling products, but I always try the new stuff in hopes that I will find one I like...lol.
  2. No more Cleveland Indians baseball... ever.
  3. Yep... if you stop getting older, it means you stopped altogether...lol.
  4. Another band I discovered this year is Liliac. The singer is a female version of Ronnie James Dio. She's a star.
  5. I disagree. I can definitely tell the difference between a Prov1 and cheaper, surlyn/ionomer covered balls.
  6. Yea, I realized that after I hit the submit button...lol. I would never play refurbished balls either.
  7. Look at it from another perspective....... How many of your $1,000 irons do you lose during a round? Driver/wedges/putter? Do you still have them at the end of your round? I have all of my stuff after a round. What I don't have is at least one of the shiny brand new balls...or more, at the end of a round. Why would I spend $50.00+ for balls that I will lose for various reasons during a round? Why would I spend $50.00+ for balls that honestly don't make a whit of difference in my score or enjoyment of the game? Why would I not play used, urethane covered balls for $12.00 - $15.00 a dozen over brand new "cheaper" balls at the same price? Disclaimer; I don't play "refurbished" balls. Those could be anything from years in the water to who knows. They just have a shiny new paint job. I play "found" balls that have been lost...lost golf balls...lol. They have some dirt and wear... nothing has been done to hide that. They have logos from companies, schools, outings, sports teams, etc... I have played brand new ProV1's along with found ProV1's in the same round. I can't tell a difference. If most people are honest about it, they can't either. I don't have the disposable income to play brand new urethane balls for a whole season. I'm guessing I'm not the only one who has to play "on a budget". My equipment isn't cheap... I have as much $$$ in my equipment as you do. The thing is, I have played the same equipment for a more than a few years. If I played brand new urethane balls all the time, I'm sure it would add up to quite a bit of money after one season. If I could play an entire season with maybe two dozen brand new balls.... sure! The reality is that I usually go through around four dozen balls a season... or more. Some of us love to play the game... we just can't afford to play at the level of expense that you and others can comfortably afford. This is not a knock on you/your opinion... I understand what you are saying. It's just another aspect of why some of us choose to play used balls over new balls.
  8. I love me some Ahi Tuna stakes! Ummm.... "steaks" too...lol.
  9. I'm very sorry to hear this. I will pray for you and your family.
  10. Buckeyes' defense sucks. This team is already done.
  11. I'd be happy to get back to 105 and stay in the fairway.
  12. George Dickel Bottled in Bond. This is pretty good!
  13. I live 45 miles south of Cleveland. In the 80's the Browns were not the worst team in the league. In fact, they were contenders, making the playoffs 3 times. I've been a Raiders fan my whole life, but the Browns weren't always pathetic... and they are on their way to being contenders again. I agree with you about the Indians (I will never root for the Guardians...lol). I knew when Dolan was awarded the team that it would go south in no time.
  14. I know that's true. I just hate fumbling with head covers. I have started putting them back on after teeing off for that reason. I still hate them...lol.
  15. I can't disagree with any of that. I have Lie-Nielsen planes that are works of art. They are/were so pretty I hated to use them...lol. But the real beauty in them is how they work... which is incredibly well. I feel the same way about golf clubs... use them and take proper care of them... they will take care of you for a long time.
  16. I you want to use 'em... use 'em. I have no use for them. I don't use my driver cover either, other than for transport and sitting in the garage. Golf clubs are tools... meant to be used. Scrapes and scuffs are part of the usage process. I suppose my attitude towards that is because of my trade as a Cabinet Maker... tools are used for making money, not for show.
  17. My 15 year old is 28.... and she gave me 4 grand kids. My other 15 year old is 25... and she gave 2 grand kids. I'm too damn young to have 6 grand kids!
  18. I have caught a case of the s****s bad! I can't even chip without a hosel rocket. This happened years ago, and I damn near quit the game over it. A couple more rounds like this and I think I'm done for the year.
  19. I'm sorry to hear that. Work is not important right now. Go and be with your sister. I'm praying for you and your family.
