  1. +1 to Sizemore getting things going again. The local shop had a display of a couple of the copper insert models. Unique shape with great feel.
  2. Alright, where did this come from? I was very happy at the lack of a CS option in the KOMBI. Now I may need to have one. At least it is not stainless, or is it?
  3. Did anyone else hope for Street Fighter II graphics? Maybe one long razor claw and a mask?
  4. Monterey is a nice putter. The finish is getting a bad review (deserved?). I had a heavy Monterey that I just sold after it became the latest victim of my Byron 006.
  5. +1 for the 330RX. I also like the Wilson Zip in a cash pinch. Got a 2 pack of the new Wilson Staff tour ball. Feels great on the putting green. Will play one the next time out.
  6. Just says "Stop stealin' me putters!" to me. Check with member MSaternus if you want a putter rack. The ones he did in wood for Byron are amazing.
  7. I like the stainless much better. The black headcover is nice too. If there was a CS version, I would probably be buying another putter that my Byron will keep out of the bag.
  8. Same with me, except for the KY part. I remember seeing even numbered clubs and being confused a bit. I have decided to play 13 clubs, forcing myself to learn to open the SW to cover the LW shots. Probably can drop the GW too, but it is goto at this point.
  9. A simple thing that has helped my game recently has been getting back in the pool for workouts. It is hard to describe the overall effect, but my body feels longer and more flexible after swimming. At 41, my soreness from the indoor time at the gym seems to linger longer than when I was younger. Weight has gotten stuck at 218, but I know I am switching out fat for muscle too. Plus, swimmin in the rain is fun...
  10. If one accepts his actions as a result of addiction, then the apology, however rehearsed, has to be part of the process. I think that the nature of the transgression rubs people different ways. Say it was gambling instead. I don't think you would have a group of people who would respond with envy if he was losing 200K a night at the tables. I doubt the non-golf media would have run with it as much as they did/have. But because it is sex, and the US gets a little weird about sex, it changes everything. Personally, I think that he should have just worked it out with his close family and then gone back to golf once that was solid. He doesn't have to apologize to me. I still love watching John Daley with all of his struggles in life off the course. Humans do dumb stuff all the time. I am going to the Open in JUne. Hopefully Tiger will be playing. I will be happy to cheer his game when he plays well.
  11. Are the PING forged irons going to be forged in Japan or China?
  12. Thats's nice. I like the Rife style face. Looking at the web address made me think it was in AZ. My poor education did not include the Scottsdale in the UK. With the other Scots place it makes sense though.
  13. Kind of how the equipment game seems to go though. Some lines/names gain strength while others fade. Using the Hogan name with junky equipment is shady though. I have probably watched his swing on youtube 1000 times. That fluidity and grace deserves a better legacy imho.
  14. I would have liked random prizes too, but the game is already a foot.
  15. I like my 2009 Burners a bunch and it sounds like we are similar swing wise. Absolutely get fit. Mine are the stock shafts cut 1/2" short. Only the clubfitter could have figured that out. I think that they have great feedback on miss hits vs. pure contact. I received the free 6 iron from their promotion last year and compared to the RAC OS2s I was gaming, the Burners were better. Hit a lot of different sets. I picked up a set of X22s for $250 at golf galaxy. Love the look, but they felt muted to me. Same with the G5/G10 from PING. Wanted, for whatever reason, to play PING irons. Just didn't feel right. My Burners should serve me well for quite a few years as I improve my game. Good luck and enjoy the hunt.
  16. Can I just hang it on my office wall and look at it. I do love copper.
  17. Hi All My name is Dave and I am in Sacramento, CA. Just took up this silly/amazing game two years ago at 38. So challenging yet so rewarding. I have issues with club purchase impulse control, especially putters. Had my current Byron in the bag since last June, but I keep looking around at others. Only working two days a week now, so I am hoping that I can improve my game this Spring with lots of time at the range. Drop the kids at school and beat balls is the plan. Providing the rain stops...
  18. The one with the red line reminds me of the Never Compromise mallets. NZ Ray or something like that. Different shaft position, of course. Will roll the 2 ball just because it looks interesting. I like that they are mixing it up. Head shapes are nothing new, but changing the shaft to the rear is different. Tour Edge would like to remind me that it has been done before.
  19. Got a pair for $4. No snow in Sac so Lowe's looked at me funny when I asked for them. Nice to use on the range in front of the ball to help me keep the target line in mind.
  20. Meh. Short post, but well, meh.
  21. +1 on the neck Huh? I too love raw copper. This looks like it has a satin finish. Big white site dot seems random with the lack of paintfill everywhere else. It looks engraved, not stamped too.
  22. Nice idea. Sometimes the red haze of three putt may scramble the yardages on the next whole. This would be a nice reminder tool.
  23. LOL, I may have rushed out to roll a SeeMore about that time.
  24. Whenever I see these wedges, my first response is that I want one. Then looking at the options I start to feel like my high handicap swing is too erratic to select the correct wedge. I think that a 60* FAW is the right option, but I just can't feel sure. Honestly, should I wait a few seasons till my swing matures before looking at these wedges? I get a bit of the 16 year-old driving a Ferrari vibe. Not like I am rushing into a set of AP2s either.
  25. I did not expect square from the top. First few frames reminded me of the Hogan/Betti Big Ben long putter in the garage. It would be sweet to see someone putt lights out with that hunk of metal. Can't wait to hear Faldo's commentary.
