  1. That's great! Sometimes you have to take a break from something and assess what's going on. I also like my whisk(e)y. I usually have a pour or two an evening. Whisk(e)y is a hobby of mine. It's more akin to what the wine aficionados do . There are those evenings when it does get a bit out of hand, but they are few and far between. I grew up around alcoholics (everyone on my father's side, and eventually my father, too), so I stay mindful of the fact that it runs in the family. Good luck to you, and I hope you can get back to enjoying your dram of choice.
  2. I had the same issue (shoulder surgery) and had to smooth things out. I'm up to around 105 mph. with the driver. I don't think I'll get any more speed, at this point. I had my shoulder repaired 5 years ago. It doesn't hurt to swing a bit harder now, but I've gotten used to a smoother swing. I think my game has actually improved because of it.
  3. So.............. I know this is a cigar forum, but.... any Spirits fans in here? I'm a whisk(e)y geek. I love all things whisk(e)y.... Scotch, Irish, Bourbon, etc... I 've been known to enjoy a good Tequila, also. What's your poison?
  4. MGS is the only golf forum I've registered on, for this very reason.
  5. Yea, I was thinking the same thing. I play on a league with a few of the "sandbagger" types. I always try to play the best I can. I really don't know what my HC is, but I would guess around 11-13.
  6. Is this a job I can do myself, or is it best left to a profesional? If I can do it myself, where is the weight added on the putter head, and what kind of glue do I use to put the head back on?
  7. I don't give two s**ts about Tiger's private life. I just like to watch the greatest player of our time (IMHO) play the game.
  8. I am currently using a Rife Aussie putter at 34". I'm 5'9" with a 30" inseam. When I'm comfortable with my set up, I'm holding the putter at the bottom of the grip, almost to the shaft. I think I'd like to cut it down to 32". My question is: can I do that without needing to add the weight I cut off, back? Also, if I just get it re-shafted with a shorter shaft, will the weight be right?
  9. Unfortunately, Woodson was tagged twice. He was injured during the two years he was tagged. The last year, he basically made $10 million to ride the pine. I hated to see him go, but there was no choice after that. He's still one of my favorite Raiders. The move was good for him. It rejuvenated his career. I enjoyed watching him with the Pack, but it was bittersweet.
  10. You're right about all of that. I was ready to kill my TV when the Raiders couldn't even get a yard. I never thought I would know the pain of being a Browns fan, but this last decade has been a lesson in futilty for Raiders fans.
  11. Worst call ever! It was a fumble, and the whole world knows it.
  12. Well, I did it. I ordered the MP-64's I went with the KBS Tour stiff shaft. I'm a boring customer for the fitter... I'm standard length and lie . I'll be the proud owner of the nicest irons I've ever had, in a couple of weeks. I sure hope my enthusiasm for the feel of these irons translates to the course.
  13. You get one guess who remembers that game..... even though he was only 9 years old.
  14. After you torch it, do you need to clear coat it, or can you just let it alone?
  15. Nice job! I have the same putter. The black is wearing off and generally looking dingy. What did you do to get that finish?
  16. I'm a Titleist guy when it comes to drivers. I've played the 910 D3 for the last two years. I love it. I tried the 913 D3 just for s**ts and giggles. I ended up taking it home. I have the Aldila RIP Alpha in the 910. I went with the Phenom in the 913. It felt great, but we will see if I like it as well as the Alpha.
  17. Ok, I just got back from demoing some irons. I tried the 825's (really nice feeling iron), the 59's and the 64's. The 59 is a pretty club! I was really hoping to hit it well, but my launch angle was just a little to low for my liking (12-15 deg. with a #6) I hit the 825's and the 64's about equally well. I hit them both with a R and S Dynamic Gold and KBS Tour. KBS Stiff is the shaft for me in either club. I was able to get an average of 182-185 yards with roll out.I managed to get two out to 190. Carry averaged around 174 yards. I was able to very launch angles between 14-20 deg.
  18. Exactly. How could you possibly think no one would figure it out?
  19. Seems to me he should "marshall up" the group two holes behind us. Why scold us...... we aren't holding anyone up!
  20. Thanks for the help, guys. I'm going to think on it a bit more. Any other suggestions in the Mizuno line you would recommend trying?
  21. When the next group is two holes behind you, there is no reason for a marshall to be an A-hole.
  22. I'm a Footjoy guy. I just got a new pair of all black Dry Joys with the lizard skin saddle. I'm with R.P. Jacobs II..... I'll keep my conservative shoes that look like they belong on a guy my age.
  23. What will keep me away is a ranger/marshal that follows me around and badgers me about holding the group behind us up. No one in my group plays that slow. All of us can get around a golf course without any problem. It seems this guy just wants to be "importent". I also don't tolerate a course with a snobby, arrogant clientele that acts like you shouldn't be allowed to play there. What keeps me coming back is a friendly staff that acts like they want my business.
  24. This seems like a good place to ask this. I'm thinking of getting new irons this year. I'm currently playing Mizuno MX25's. I'm thinking about the MP59's. I'm not sure if my present skill level is appropriate for these irons. I normally shoot 86-82. Once in a while I can get in the high 70's. Is this an iron I can grow with, or is it not for me, yet? Trying to avoid a regret.
  25. I'm in Massillon.... home of the Tigers.
