  1. I am looking for a bag I can wear on my back while I ride my bike to the course. Mostly when I go I'm just practicing putting or short game so it doesn't have to hold 14 clubs. But a good strap system and light weight are priorities. Anyone on here use this type of minimalist equipment? Looking for recommendations off the beaten path (I can find the titleist.com website on my own, LOL!)
  2. "- Your first name - State/Province/Country - Your current iron/shaft/flex makeup - Your 7-iron distance Graham Utah, USA Ping G15 / silver dot, stiff steel, +1/2" 160
  3. That sounds kinda challenging but really cool if I could pull it off– do you know of any detailed instructions or videos on that?
  4. Sounds interesting can you post a link to where to get the pipettes?
  5. Hey i'm wondering if anyone has any experience doing paintfill with Tamiya golfleaf acrylic. I am trying to do a german flag color scheme. Have had GREAT luck applying the Tamiya Clear Red- it looks awesome and Scotty-authentic. I've been running into problems with the Goldleaf paint. It seems to pool on top of the indented areas i'm trying to fill, then wipes away excessively leaving barely anything behind. What is left, has bad air bubbles pitting it. Pretty frustrating! I am applying the paintfill with those little bottles with the syringe like nozzle. Has anyone had good luck with the Tamiya goldleaf, or some general tips on applying thicker paintfill?
  6. Thank you I will look into those options.
  7. I have been bagging a 15 degree TaylorMade Burner 3 wood for some time now. After over a full season of practicing and playing with the club, I have come to the conclusion that it simply does not fit my game, and have begun doing market research looking for the club's eventual replacement. I will be demoing the following clubs as I search for a replacement: Titleist 910H, 17 degree 2 hybrid Cobra Baffler Rail Hybrib, 17 degrees I would also like to demo an Adams hybrid but to be frank, with six different hybrids in their product line right now, I find the task of picking one a little bit intimidating. I used to play a Cobra Baffler and always had great luck with that club, and I'm very intrigued by Titleist's adjustable technology. Are there any other 2 hybrids or 5 woods I should be hitting before I lay down the cash?
  8. Well...for what it's worth...I have a California Del Mar with two swingweights and I have an open-closed face swing. I love my putter (for $300 I had better) but there are lots of good putters out there. ALways remember: A good putter could putt with a stick.
  9. I don't think you should use one unless you're 50+ or have a note from your doctor explaining a serious back condition. Adam Scott looks like he's trying to be gandalf the grey toting around that staff.
  10. Looks really good, I haven't had a chance to fully explore it yet but initial impressions are excellent. Great work guys.
  11. LJ was listed at 6'7, more like 6'5...making his long, productive career at power forward even more impressive. Of course it helps to be 265 and carved out of granite. Awesome story Big Stu. How did Mugsy and Larry shoot just out of curiousity?
  12. Here's a question I have about clubfitting, it's a bit of a chicken-and-egg query: How much can clubfitting help a golfer who is such a beginner that they do not have a consistent, repeatable swing? In this case, isn't the player better off honing in their swing until it is consistently repeatable, using cheap clubs, and then upgrading to custom-fit clubs later? I'd be interested in Callaway's response to this. I could imagine a situation where a beginning golfer with a flawed swing got custom-fit, then played for a few months and developed their swing and found their custom-fit clubs no longer fit their swing.
  13. The Spalding...makes me think of SPAULDING GET YOUR FOOT OFF THE BOAT!
  14. Tiger was on my bench today for his 66...I'm putting him in play for Saturday...now watch Phil go low.
  15. great stories rookieblue! I have heard an anecdote about Tiger being a real jerk to the owner of a coffee shop in Park City Utah, but I tend to give celebs a little latitude in their behaviour simply because when you are that famous, everyone you meet wants something from you and it must get tiresome. I think it's great if they can be gratious about it most of the time but I'm willing to forgive anyone a bad day.
  16. I don't feel qualified to answer, having grown up during Tiger's glory era (I remember reading about Tiger in Boy's Life when he was 15) I would say Tiger but I really don't know enough about Jack's effect on the history of the game. I do enjoy reading and watching on golf channel about the Palmer-Player-Nicklaus times of yore.
  17. I know we rehash this every year, and I know I can stream it for free, but why in the H-E-double hockey sticks can't we just watch the ENTIRE Master's live? It's called demand. You fill it with supply.
  18. looks really good. great job, looking forward to the launch.
  19. Now Elin's book deal, that one is going to take the prize...she doesn't even have to write anything, just publish something with a glossy cover on it, a title printed in golf lamé raised font, go on The View to hype it, sit back and counts the moneys.
  20. "Sherrie Daly said she wrote the book for two reasons. The first was to clear her name for the day her ex-husband accused her of stabbing him and then hit the golf course with marks on his face. "That's a little over the top," she said. "I did not stab John Daly." Mostly, she said she wrote the book so her children could find peace." You wrote the book because you got a lucrative deal to write a book, dear. Full stop.
  21. Philly Mick is my favorite golfer. That being said, I'm rooting for Tiger to get his mojo back and start winning tournaments again, because I want to see one of the greatest golfers of all time do great times. I want to see Woods and Mickelson paired together on Sunday and duel it out on the best course in the world. The relative "real-ness" of a man's smile is completely subjective and I don't flatter myself to think I can judge if Tiger's smile is fake or not. It enrages me to read this criticism of Woods, just as it bothers me when people say the same of Phil: "Oh, he's being fake. No one is really that nice." Um, you don't know him. The author of this "article" is a complete sap and I'm embarrassed to share a favorite golfer with him. About what I expect to read on Blecher (no spelling error) Report, where the nitwits, cheap moralists and 9th-grade reading level morons of the internet post. Rob Kelly, "correspondent." What a joke. Posted from his mom's basement.
