  2. Angry Yeti came through! A true superhero. Thanks
  3. Well - I don't get it either when that basic search shows that Fairwaygolf will have it in stock in June and I can't even access the GG website from Europe. I know how to google stuff. It's not a question of how dumb I am It's a question of "has anyone seen this bag in a store somewhere and do you want to make a little money by helping me buy it and have it shipped to Norway"
  4. Don't have any contacts in Titleist USA. They're probably sold out, and the only option is finding one in a store somewhere.
  5. Hi, Haven't been here for a while :) I'm gonna come crawling back when I need help :D Can anyone help me find this bag - Titleist Players 4 StaDry. White, product code TB9SX2-1. It's a US release only, and limited edition. I think. What I'm actually asking for is if someone finds it in a store, help me purchase it and ship it to me. We'll discuss the practicalities if someone. PayPal is your friend. If you wonder if I'm a total a****** and completely unreliable just ask one of the MGS guys. They'll confirm that it's true :D If you come across it in an online store that ships to Europe - please let me know. If you find one in your local store - let me know if we can work something out. Fairly desperate to find one at this point :)
  6. Arccos. Game Golf. Shot Scope. The three big guys in shot tracking. I've used all of them, and I need some help figuring out if they're completely useless or just a little unnecessary. Accuracy What is the GPS accuracy? 3-4 meters? These systems are not accurate enough to know if your shot landed in the fairway or rough. Different shots Does the system know what type of shot you're hitting? Full swing? Low punch? No - it doesn't. The distance averages are useless unless you play full shots all the time from perfect lies. Did you just chip with your 8i? What does that do with your stats? Lie If you've got a bad lie and hit a bad shot because of it - doesn't matter to these systems. They just know which club you're hitting, with a somewhat ok understand of where you're hitting it from because of the 3-4m accuracy. Weather Windy day? Getting your driver stats screwed up? Shot trackers have no idea if it's a hurricane or perfect weather. Course conditions 80 meters roll on dry courses in Spain? Or zero roll on wet courses in England? Two things There's only two things these systems can tell you - how many times you've used each club, and the general direction of your shot. Or am I wrong? Are they more accurate than regular GPS devices? Do the sensors pick up if it's a half swing? I used to love them. Please convince me to love them again. Let me know why they're reliable.
  7. There's absolutely no reason to believe that the newspaper did anything wrong. Yes - it's probably something she just mentioned. She felt it wasn't important, and that it was the wrong thing to focus on in the interview. There's several quotes from her in the interview about Trump, golf, cheating and not scoring to his handicap. And there's no way the journalist made up all that. Reality is, she probably saw how the interview turned out and didn't like it. Regrets about mentioning how a mentally unstable presidents cheats at golf and still hoping he'll let you live in your country
  8. Crossfield is a whiny baby. Get over it and get the clubs like others have to - pay for them and sell them when you're done. TM is in their full right to not send free stuff to people. When you consider the low number of people who actually watch this stuff, it's a fair decision to not spend the money here. There are around 115.000 golfers in Norway. One of the smallest nations in golf. Crossfield has 233k+ subscribers and 20-30k views on videos? Let's not make him and others on YT a bigger deal than they are. Golf Digest and MGS in the USA (with worldwide reach). Golf Monthly in UK. National magazines in Scandinavia. Traditional media has a strong position among golfers in Europe. Norwegians call this "a storm in a glass of water". For what it's worth - Acushnet/Titleist marketing, attitude and behaviour is below par. TM is doing a better job. A lot better.
  9. I asked top guys in Acushnet Europe back when I was a journalist; What is your number one golf club? The one that shows what Titleist can do. Defines the company. The answer? "Pro V1"
  10. They are trying out video decisions this season, but most fans hate it. Takes time and ruins the flow. Minutes waiting for a decision? That's ok in NFL but not football. By the way - offense is when you have the ball. That's it. You don't understand football. That's ok. You'll never enjoy it the way fans do. Diving - yes. But who cares? Watching Neymar roll around after being hit by a feather in the wind isn't what it's about. Go to a 2.division game in England. A derby in Istanbul (if you have a death wish....). We even fixed basketball for you.
  11. Tottenhams victory was very popular here. Norwegians are anglophile. It's normal to travel to several games in England every year. Som even travel to all stadiums in the division system! I've only been to a few Newcastle matches. St James' Park is a special place. Cool fact about Ronaldo and Real - under Zidane, they've never lost when playing without Ronaldo in the team. Shaktar was a little surprising. They've got great quality (always some really good Brazilians in the team), but I did expect more from the Italians. A true football nerd appreciates how Napoli plays. Look at this video. Playing out from the back against the worlds most aggressive team - Diego Simeones Atletico. The World Cup. Well. Norway is at an all time low in football and wont be there. I think there's too many teams in the WC now. Miss the old championships in the 80s and 90s.
  12. I'll forgive you calling it soccer. I know how it is over there. CL. Round 1. Difference between top 3-4 clubs and the rest is getting bigger? Surprised to see both Benfica and Porto lose at home to fairly week opposition. Benfica haven't renewed their team. Will struggle in CL. English teams are still just ok in CL. Liverpool with a stupid draw. Complete lack of central defenders. Needed to buy van Dijk. Didn't get him. Spurs beat Dortmund, but if you're ever going to beat them now is the perfect time. Selling top players like Dembele. PSG are just ridiculous. Broke every single financial fair play law, but what a team. I've like the club since Rochetau, Bats and Roche. They've lost the French style, but have traded it for something that looks like a CL-winning team. No need to follow MLS, but you're missing out if you don't follow some of the national leagues. La Liga is fascinating. Ligue1 is underrated. Bundesliga is organized. Serie A is overrated. I follow Primeira Liga in Portugal because I love the country
  13. Made in Denmark on ET. If you can - watch some European tournaments. Lots of talent and the occasional superstar.
  14. Loyal customers means nothing if you don't make money having only these customers. I agree that being absent from the show isn't a sign of anything when it comes to Mizuno. Europe is a small market, but their office is in Italy and virtually impossible to deal with. They don't even ship to Norway. We're a mini country, but actually not being able to buy Mizuno here - that's just weird.
