  1. I wouldn't say that I take lessons online but I do watch a few youtube vids from time to time. And occasionally I'll pick-up a tip that I like that seem to make sense to me. Two that come to mind are Shawn Clements and Clay Ballard.
  2. Yeah and don't let it happen again. LOL
  3. I'm not a golf watch/gps wearing guy. I do however use both GPS and a LRF. For about the price of your watch I have both. My LRF is a Precision Pro and my GPS is a Garmin Approach G10. I like being able to shoot a pin and then have a reference from the GPS of knowing roughly if the pin is set on the front, middle, back. IMO just shooting a pin without reasonable depth measurements is deceiving. If I were only as accurate as my electronics I'd be set.
  4. I'm currently a Wishon man as far as my irons go. I decided a few years ago to break out of the golf magazine - golf shop brands mold and give a small off the radar brand a shot. Are my clubs better than the Big Boys? No. But they're certainly equivalent in both quality and technology. Like most clubs I believe.... regardless of brand it all boils down to the fitting. And... are your clubs built correctly. Two different things. Fitting & assembly. Both critical IMO. I also bag and old 2014 Tmag SLDR, Edel Willamette putter, Wishon 4w, and an old TM Burner 2.0 4i.
  5. Caught toe on sidewalk and smashed finger into limestone column. Out of the game for 4-6 weeks.
  6. I'm not going to order any as I already have plenty of MG gloves in inventory. But, I bet they are pretty decent. As for the poker chip... those things make the worst markers. It's like laying down a man-hole cover.
  7. No you didn't... You can use the poker chip. Works on either side. LOL
  8. Hmmmm maybe. Those shoes aren't too bad as many are these days. Those are almost classic styled but I'm not quite sold on the reptile hide look. They still might still be a little too pimp for my tastes. But I'll think about it.
  9. I'd be interested in watching it. Presently, I'm not a fan but certainly no hater like we hear so much of these days. Like Kenny said... the "scientist" moniker was slapped on him by the media. I'm guessing he's never held a job in his degree field. Pretty sure his diploma doesn't say Bryson DeChambeau - Scientist on it. I'll give it shot and watch.
  10. Guess I'll just stick with the basic bow style I learned as a child. For golf shoes I use waxed laces instead of the fashion laces shoes come with these days.
  11. This a passion post I can see. Fitting is king around here for most folks. I too would prefer being fit outdoors where I can see with my own eyes what's happening. That goes for all clubs except putter. However... it's not always available from every fitter. I also don't buy that if you are fit off fake turf you're not getting a good fit or that your fitter is crap. Again, I'd prefer to be fit hitting off grass. I was fit for my current irons indoors off turf and even a tee at times. My fitter has been doing nothing but professional fittings (and building the clubs) for 30 years and is recognized by peers as one of the best in the business. Top in the country in fact. He also fit me for a driver that I returned. It just didn't work out in the real world. Could be he missed the fitting some how. No biggie to me. I moved on to a different driver. As long as I stick with my fitter I have no problem fitting irons indoor with him. Driver... not so much. I will add, my fitter guarantees all his fittings and builds. Either he makes them right to your liking or returns your money less a minor fitting charge.
  12. I think "they" should just ban putting. The green is re-designated as a safe-place. Once your ball is on the surface you pickup and move on. Speeds up pace of play, resolves the pin in or pin out issue, and nobody gets hurt feelings or angered any longer. Happy happy.
  13. a few photos would be nice.
  14. I don't get it. Just did a basic search on the net and find plenty of them. Here's two. https://www.fairwaygolfusa.com/titleist-limited-players-4-stadry-stand-bag-p-173796.html?language=en&gclid=CjwKCAjw96fkBRA2EiwAKZjFTSCwhdR3CJDRVotZI_JSPQsB-Jc_5ku2m8ikSuzvEVXkPDLDNFZkBBoCOy0QAvD_BwE https://www.golfgalaxy.com/p/titleist-2019-players-4-stadry-stand-bag-18ttlmplyrs4stdrybag/18ttlmplyrs4stdrybag?camp=CSE:GGXY_92700041461934755_pla_pla-642988376347&gclid=CjwKCAjw96fkBRA2EiwAKZjFTTDoDGxTViPufxDCh-lA-WTQ-0dHcrY81xGQwAn-VMwjbwGs3pglTBoCwfsQAvD_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds
