  1. Retired over 10 years now and trying to play 4 to 5 days/week has changed my round warm-up routine. The body does not want extended practice range time along with 4 to 5 rounds per week, so I hit 2 or 3 clubs after the normal stretching/warm up exercises for flexibility. Choose the clubs based on the course (we have 3 different courses) that Shot Scope says are the most frequently hit on that course/tee box. Then, I select one club each day to finish out the small bucket. I practice that one club to different yardages (50, 100, 125, etc. depending on the club) and work in a couple of fades or draws the best I can. Today's equipment wants to hit everything straight so working the ball is not as big of a deal as it was in the blade/ballata years. But still like to practice the swings needed to fade or draw when desired and I still like to be able to hit a specific yardage with 3 different clubs (for all middle yardages). Helps in club selection on approach shots to account for daily conditions.

  3. I've played the Golf Pride CP2 both pro & wrap for a long time. Bought 3 of the new Gray of which you speak. They are fantastic, now looking for another 10 grips.
  4. Yes, and I usually just use rubbing alcohol to do the same thing. Have even used Windex and it still works fine. Can use the club immediately with no drying time. Will say that the leather grips are much more difficult to install - guess the leather does not want to expand as easily but still no major issue just using a $30 auto inflater from Home Depot. Don't need a big compressor.
  5. Should verify this. Information I read indicated it was a full size steel rim spare (different rim than other 3 tires on vehicle) - that failed possibly contributing to the accident - not a doughnut spare.
  6. Great addition, hope the Map helps build the community. I did notice that first adding location by zip code and choosing my county in Texas, it placed me at the geographic center of the county. I then changed to the "use my current location" option (instead of entering zip code) and it placed me exactly where my home is located. Don't know if this works better for everyone, but it worked great for me. Hope it helps. Edit: correct English

    Maxfli Tour

    Tour's are great balls in performance but also durable. This ball I have played for the past 4 rounds, it has seen the woods more than once, hit a couple of cart paths on the fly and took a direct hit on a tree trunk at 40 yds. from my 1 iron. I think that might be the one mark that is visible. Still plays great but has lost that "new" ball feel so it has earned retirement. Love the ball.
  8. Didn't have Cataract's but did have the Lens replacement surgery (same surgery for Cataract's) on both eyes Aug/2020. Dr. used the diamond knife tool to make the slit (as opposed to using a laser - which is also common today). Other than that their is little difference in the surgery's, with the Lens installation being done the same after both procedures. One eye and then two weeks later the other eye. I played golf the day after surgery both times with no issues except that I didn't need glasses and I could see the ball all the way down the fairway. It did take a couple of days for vision to be "normal" - now My vision is 20/15 and the only issue (which does not really bother me) is the "halo's" around lights - especially in a dark room or at night. The little blue lights on the stove/microwave and other devices light up like a Christmas tree for me. Some people say they get "floater's" - but I have not had those at all. Lucky I guess. Good luck, hope it turns out as well for you.

    Maxfli Tour

    I've been using them since the 2019 ball test. With my game, I cannot distinguish a difference with the ProV1 - other than being a lot lower cost. The 2021 version is just as good - if not better - than the previous version. The alignment decal does not bother me visually, and I don't use it for alignment. I "floated" the first couple of dozen balls and did not find one that was not in perfect balance. I found that hard to believe - so I floated several balls of all brands from my used bucket - just to make sure the "floating" was working and it was working just fine. I keep trying all the new balls, some I find and others I buy, but so far nothing comes close to the Tour any where near the price. Do want to try the Vice Pro/Vice Pro+, but at their price, even if they were as good as the Tour - the price just wouldn't work out to be better.
  10. A good friend's response is "Where in the world did that come from?". He is not playing right now for medical reasons but thanks for reminding me of the great response.
  11. That sounds great - but maybe get additional verification? H&R Block says that hobby income must be reported as "other income" and since 2018 tax law, there is no place to deduct the hobby expenses. Just a caution to verify.
  12. You might reach out to people that have upgraded from V2 to V3. They have several tags (3i, H2, X3, X4) that they may not be using and willing to give (or sell) to you. They will work with the V3 system. Put one in a club and then use that club in a round and the tag should then appear in your "MyBag" area where you can change the club specifics to match the club you used.
  13. Had a full RT hip replacement the first week of Aug this year. I am 76 and had the LT hip replaced 11 years ago. At 4 weeks was chipping/putting with no issues. Actually hit some full shots but did not want to push it so kept that to a minimum. Played 9 holes at 6 weeks with full swings, tried to keep it to around 80% effort but you know how that goes. Have been playing 3 or 4 times a week in December and don't even think about the Hip during play. The incision still has a little "puffy" feeling to it but I think almost all trauma in the muscles has repaired and flexibility is as good as it is probably going to get. Do your PT and stretching exercises - very important.

    Bombtech Golf

    I have bought their 1 iron, 2HW and the set of wedges. Very satisfied with the performance of the clubs. Not a scam as far as I have seen. They are aggressive in their advertising but you should be able to disconnect the emails if that is what you desire. I have not had an issue in doing that. I initially wanted to try the 1 iron for low & long shots from off the fairway and low tee shots into the Texas wind. I really liked how it played, so tried the set of wedges, they are excellent for me. Your usage may be different - but their price is right if they work for you. I have not tried to return anything so have no input on that aspect of their service.

    Thanks everyone for the good wishes. Great day - well the golf was only so-so but that is still a great day.
