  1. Yep DJ is one class act himself--- but then again so are all the members on this site
  2. Something I missed the first time around. Chalk it up to a senior moment. That shaft in your driver is one heck of a shaft. I used that shaft for years in all my drivers and fairways. I finally got too old to swing them anymore. My favorite graphite shaft of all time.
  3. That is one of the most timeless designs ever--- And you are hearing that from a confirmed Macgregor and Hogan blade man. I actually have a set of eye 2s I found in one of the bins at work. They were red dots but I did bend the lies up to my specs but did not jack the lofts. A friend of mine on WRX who is a Ping expert told me not to jack the lofts. They are basically traditional lofts starting with a 48* PW. I think what smoothes mine out is the Apollo multi step shafts that were in them when I found them.
  4. Heck I work making pretty decent money and can not afford them
  5. And trust me on this because you and I think alike. You would not like them. My running partner Bear has a set. They hit ok but nothing like what you and I are bagging. Even at his age he is into the distance thing. His PXGs are 2* stronger than any of my KZGs and I still use 1 club less than he does. He swears I have those things jacked and I do not. Besides I can not justify paying that much for a set of clubs. But hey to each his own whatever floats their boat
  6. You guys know me I love to experiment---- I have been messing around with leaving it in some in my vintage practice rounds. On putts 5 feet and in it distracts me. I like it on long putts. But seriously I am still uncommitted either way because of late frankly my putting has sucked. The groups I play in are non committable too.
  7. I have had the same thing happen even with cheaper cigars. A experienced cigar smoker at the shop where I buy mine turned me on to the V cut method. Like I said I am a rookie on this. Trust me I read a lot of what you guys say and absorb it
  8. Now I am a "cigar rookie" compared to you guys but in my experiments I have found what I call a eye cut or what you call a v cut to be the most effective for me. I have experimented with both the guillotine and the hole punch thing and found the v cut is the best. I have even used a tee on occasion. Lately I have been smoking Tampa Trolleys because I got a good price on them but have tried Acid Blonde and like those too. The Trolleys seem smooth to me and I can buy 3 of them for what one Acid Blonde costs. The only time I smoke cigars is on the golf course
  9. You know you are welcome. We can go to the Kroger right across the street get us a tub of Palmetto Pimento and a loaf of bread and there you go. I also use it as a dip with chips too

    Old vs new

    Cnosil pretty much nailed it. Far as I go I am a wedge ho and can tune mine with both weight placement and grinding on the soles. For me the older wedges have a better feel but that is just me and MHO. Conforming or not does not make a hill of beans to me because I do not play stipulated events or comps anymore. I will also take a groove sharpener to one in a NY minute
  11. Rookie Blue who used to be on here a lot had the recipe and posted it on here one year--- I made it and it was ok then someone here at the beach turned me on to Palmetto Pimento--- And yes I have been to Texas many times and that Price's is good too. Used to eat that stuff all the time. I have gotten older and that stuff tends to clog me up some if I eat it like I used too but then again that is one of the uses for Epson Salts
  12. Right ON ! Brother you got it!!!! Made right down the road about 8 miles from me
  13. Absolutely and the sweet smell of all the flowers and the grass itself. I like being on any golf course early in the morning and have been on quite a few. But the fresh mown grass there smells like no other place on earth I have ever been. And if you know golf history like I do it is amazing when you see the sights and sounds. I do not get into politics at all so I could care less if the ANGC members are Autocratic or Democratic. My inflammation is ok> It was a touch of gout caused by me eating too much imported or farm raised shrimp the last 2 weeks. Regular shrimp out of the Inlet here does not affect me much. I am on a BP pill anyhow that has a diuretic in it anyhow. My MD who is a golf bud anyhow told me what to do. Lay off the shrimp rest it up drink plenty of water and pee a lot. I am ok now I am going to practice in a few
  14. For us boys born and raised in the South it is tradition---- I have had the privilege of attending the event 7 times over the years. The last time was 20 years ago. Normally if the opportunity presents itself I will play golf myself and tape it. Yesterday I was sorta laid up with a joint inflammation in my left foot. I did do some modifications on my Scotty putter and putted about 2 hours with it yesterday morning and then yesterday afternoon. So I saw some of it and taped the rest and watched it this morning. And yes I purchased some Palmetto Pimento brand pimento cheese for the weekend which is about as close to the Pimento Cheese sandwiches at August as one can get. If you think ANGC looks good on HDTV you ought to be there in person. As far as the other majors especially the US Open I could give two hoots less
  15. Now you are cooking with gas so to speak--- I gave $13 for my Jones bag which is a non stand model which was what I wanted. A guy in Eastern NC had it. The shipping was around $15 or so. I am very pleased with it. Fits good on a riding cart and is sturdy enough the bag drop guys do not squish the living sheet out of it. I am thinking about buying a Classic Jones stand he has for the same price. I did retrofit mine with a padded Titleist strap from one of my old staff bags.
