  1. I've seen that cooler and it's great. I just sent them an email also. Hopefully they will release one soon!
  2. As planned, got the Clicgear tonight. Got a very good deal via a Friends & Family coupon provided by a teacher friend of my wife. Pics are below: It's obvious that the build quality of the Clicgear surpasses your average run of the mill push cart. And as you can see, the thing folds into this small bundle. I'm very happy - can't wait to take it out on the course this week!
  3. Have you figured out a good transportation system for hauling adult beverages on the Clicgear? If so, then do tell.
  4. I've been playing the CG15's for a month now. Best damn wedges I've ever gamed. I love the Dynamic Sole Grind model for chips around the green and the sand wedge is money from green side bunkers. Nearly as good from the sand as the Ping iWedge it replaced and much more effective and versatile on other shots.
  5. That's the problem with some of the kids these days - they don't take the time to learn anything about the equipment they are playing. In the old days, pros used to bend, grind, and adjust the swing weight of their own clubs. Now, the tour vans do everything for the pros and the kids in the amateur ranks just get handed stuff. The groove rule has been well publicized. Hell, there have been articles in both Golf Digest and Golf Magazine about what clubs conform. Any player at any level who gets disqualified has only themselves to blame.
  6. Yes, MGS Membership has its privileges boys and girls. My bag this season is chock full of the prizes so graciously bestowed upon yours truly and others for kicking this board off in style. My short game has never been better thanks in part to my new Byron Morgan DH-89... And a new set of CG-15 wedges. The 58 degree lob is the Oil Quenched Dynamic Sole Grind model. I'm loving the distance I'm getting from the Cleveland DST Launcher. I don't have the tour model like Intothegrain does but even the retail version is a beast if you get fitted and find the right loft/shaft combination. The specs for the rest of my bag are in my sig. I also switched out my Ping I5's a couple of weeks ago for a set of Bridgestone J36 Pocket Cavities. This is my first set of forged irons and I'm loving the feel of them. So, for 2010... new driver, irons, 5 wood, wedges, and putter. Just a few tweaks.
  7. I've decided to stop hauling my bag on my back like a sherpa and invest in a push cart. I'm heading down to Dick's tomorrow to buy a Clicgear 2.0 (which are on sale right now). I normally try to forgo carts of any kind when I play but as an experiment I've played the last three rounds renting push carts at several area courses. Each time, I shot in the 80's and finished the round almost as strong as I started it. I can't say that is the case when I lug my bag. I turn 42 in September and I think its time to leave carrying bags to the youngsters. I still want to walk and a push cart will let me do that and still have a shot at posting a good score. Are any of you guys in the same boat or should I start playing from the senior tees to fit in?
  8. Thanks Matt. Yeah, me too. I'm thinking about trying to make it out Sunday if the weather is OK.
  9. Damn, I will be a on trip with the wife and kids during that week. You guys have fun and I will try to catch the next one!
  10. Shot a season low nine hole round of 42 at Pinecrest CC today. My putting fundamentals had gotten sloppy and I switched back to a reverse overlap putting grip which has made all the difference in the world. I'm also digging the new irons. I have to focus a little more - especially when hitting the long irons. But, that isn't necessarily a bad thing.
  11. "Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering" - Yoda.
  12. You were definitely grinding, but that's what good players do when they don't have their best stuff. Did you make it out on Monday? We hit the range over at Randall Oaks at 8AM and they blew the sirens just as I got through a large bucket. It didn't thunderstorm until almost an hour later. I would have been pissed if I were playing because it rained for an hour after that. All those guys with early tee times probably spent half their morning in the clubhouse and then ended up taking rain checks.
  13. Well, I didn't hear much of that. I was too busy pitching out from the woods on the other side of the fairway...
  14. On Saturday playing with Matt, I was using the line on my ball the front nine. I was putting like total crap. Trying anything to mix it up, I stopped doing that. I simply marked my ball, replaced it and putted. Much better results - even on long putts.
  15. Matt, you forgot your post shot routine... Matt's Post Shot Routine - the Reenactment
  16. Took him by 3 strokes although I'll give him style points for rolling out the ever reliable and almost always effective "you're older than I thought you were" smack....
  17. I'll take the blame. It was obvious from observing Matt's swing and especially his length off the tee that he is a much better player than what he showed me today. It probably didn't help that I started praising certain aspects of his game (which got him thinking about good he should be). As for me, I shot an 88 with a triple and a double on the front. Putted horribly on the front nine and did better in that phase on the back. Anyway, I had a lot of fun playing with Matt. Hopefully we can do it again soon (when our schedules permit).
  18. Those Wilsons are a good set of sticks. Got the irons this afternoon. Sadly, not in time for my game with Matt. I struck the ball fairly well today. I was able to par three of the four par 3's and probably should have birdied a couple if my putting was on. So, the Pings were trying to make a strong case to stay in the bag. But, I'm not falling for it. I didn't hit near enough greens in regulation.
