  1. Looks good Chris. I am not a fan of the "tongue" (can't believe I just said that) but that is why there are so many styles. You guys cover them all in a nice unique fashion and I have seen some real beautiful putters come out of your shop. Keep it going!!
  2. It worked out great! I got a daughter and wife out of the deal I got my ass kicked all over the course and realized I just wasn't that good. My pride hurt for about three seconds and then moved into the club pro gig for ten years...realized I wasn't going to make enough moolah to survive and then went into my current profession. Still love playing golf (probably even more now) and life is good.
  3. Back in the day when I actually could play the game, I spent a couple years toiling around the Canadian Tour and had the opportunity to meet Steve Stricker and Mike Weir. Of course, this is before they went on to greater things and I went on to selling insurance Even back then those guys were on a different level.
  4. Never drove the RT Charger but my dad had the Magnum RT for a while and yeah....big power difference. The SRT8 does NOT cut out and we had it to the magic 300 km/hr (not too sure what that is in miles/hour...forgive me as I am Canadian ) and that was scary as hell. Oh how I miss that car
  5. I needed something that would be ok in winter as we get a LOT of snow. I have a 2000 Chev regular cab pickup for the winter and it was just fine until baby came. I had to park the SRT8 in the winters. Now with wife and kid...wife gets to drive the Buick and I get my truck. Bye bye SRT8. (btw...here is another pick of my former baby with 22's)
  6. I had the 2006 SRT8. It was a lot of fun until my daughter was born then had to trade it in on a 2008 Buick Enclave. I still have my baby though...it's a 65' Olds Cutlass convertible.
  7. Hockey in the winter (about 7 months of the year ) and golf in the summer.
  8. I know the title of the thread is "Finally got a Scotty" but I just wanted to let everyone know that "I Finally got RID of my Scotty"... I am now down to one putter from about 15...YAY!! Time to start ho'ing again. I won't buy any more Scotty's (I don't have the same fever that some do for them) but if my SeeMore starts to argue with me I will call Chris at SunsetBeach for one of his beauties!
  9. +1 Sactown. Your inclusion of MJ into this is a good way of looking at the separation between perceptions. P.S....how did you know when it was bedtime at Michael Jackson's house? The big hand is on the little hand. Sorry...just a little humor.
  10. I have to side with JLV on this one. I bought into the whole public image of Tiger and perhaps put him on a different level than the rest of the players because of his squeaky clean image, and even remarked to my wife one night that Tiger was never in the tabloids like pretty much every other "major" sports figure and I was really impressed. Sure he acts like a d-bag on the course and I pretty much wrote that off to him being shown ALL THE TIME and doesn't everyone curse or throw a club once in a while? Now......knowing it was all a sham and yes, he is the greatest golfer on the planet, but I will never look at him in the same light nor will I ever root for him again. Fool me once, shame on you....Even in his "press conference that wasn't a press conference" he came across as an entitled smug self centered d-bag. I forgive and forget when it's warranted and deserved and when the person whom committed the issue is actually serious about making amends. I believe he is not sorry about what he did, just about getting caught in his tangled web of deceit and lies. That's my $.02 and I know many of yours differ but this is what makes a forum great.
  11. I was reading about these one "another forum" and Ari himself said that he brought these to the show unfinished as kind of an idea to potential customers as to what they were capable of doing. These are in the "raw" stage and I have seen pictures of Ryan Moore's (former?) gamer and it was finished of very nicely.
  12. Daiwa DG-201's. If you even LOOK at these the wrong way they would get a ding in them. Super soft. I will post pics of these once I reshaft them with the KBS Tours (that just arrived today at lunchtime ) and the red w/ black rings ferrules ordered from cell-parts mfg. I can't friggin' wait for the snow to melt!
  13. I remember going to the buying show many years ago and saw a set of Porsche Design blades....I drooled all over myself and had to change ties after that. They were so pretty
  14. Haha. CJ77, it has now been a few minutes since you posted this..probably time to update your bag!
  15. Only the very rich I suspect $1800 for a used set on fleabay....wow.
  16. Oh yeah..I miss those days. I had a set of Hogan blades and played the Tour Balata and then the Professional 90 and that is a "feel" I would love to have back. Nothing like it in the world.
  17. I have played almost every wedge you can think of...and some you can't, and my experience with Scratch wedges has been at the very top of the list! Don't hesitate....be like Tiger and just do it
  18. If you want to say sorry and really mean it....you don't need a typed speech and a monotone delivery. It seems to me that it should come from the heart and not a PR department. Smug is how it came across to me.
  19. Nice to see you and Mainuh on here Jason. Name's Lanny, and I was a golf pro at a resort in the Rocky Mountains of British Columbia for a number of years...moved back to Grande Prairie, Alberta. Have a 2 year old daughter and a wife that kicks me out of the house to play golf so all is well
