  1. Buy what works the best. Spare no expense. Your wife already approved the budget item.
  2. No, you're paying to walk in the footsteps of Ben Hogan, Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus. I played Pebble Beach a week after Tiger Woods holed out on #15 from the fairway to go on and win. I asked my caddie if he could lead me to that spot in the fairway. He did and I played my second shot from that spot. I did not hole out.
  3. Just do it. Memories are better than telling others while on your deathbed how much you saved. "I feel like I've got about 5 more minutes before I die, but I have to tell everyone in this room, everyone gathered around me, that I once saved $550 by not playing Pebble Beach." How impressive is that?!
  4. Memories last forever. The money... you can't take it to the grave with you. About 20 years ago I spent $10,000 to fly two friends to Pebble Beach for 3 days of golf, lodging, meals, caddies, spa treatments, good wine. I wouldn't trade it for anything. People ask me if I wouldn't rather still have the money. Nope! The memories are priceless... that's what life is about. I'd say it was about a $200,000 memory, so I got a bargain on it.
  5. When your clubs aren't hidden from sight then you are inviting broken window theft, and all the mess that goes with it. Perhaps it depends on how much golf you play. If on the way home from the golf course you want to meet your buddies at JP's Roadside Tavern for a beer or you just want to quickly run into Walgreen's to pick up a prescription you are putting your car windows and clubs in jeopardy.
  6. I looked at new Audi a couple of years ago. When I pulled into the dealership I parked next to the car I wanted. Immediately the salesman came running out (like they always do). I asked him to open the trunk. I opened mine and pulled out my clubs and push cart. And placed them into the dealership's Audi. Salesman kept saying, "Be careful, be careful." I told him if they fit I'd buy the car. I did.
  7. I have a CT scan for torn tendons in my elbow coming up soon. Could I just swing by your offices for the services? I'll pay you with a sleeve of ProV1's and leave my insurance company and the hefty co-pay out of it.
  8. James here, from Washington state... Bellingham to be precise. We're the state that gave you Chambers Bay, never to be in the U.S. Open rotation again. I walk, using a push cart, about 120 rounds a year. I look for certain things in a cart. These are the things I'd critique: 1. Foldability. How does the dang thing collapse and how easily does it open? 2. Rollability. Smooth, easy, goes straight? 3. Tipability. Does it tip over on hillsides? 4. Storability. Does it carry my essentials? And does it carry them in the right places? 5. Umbrellability. How does it handle an umbrella; afterall, this is Washington state.
  9. If my driver doesn't test the longest there is something wrong...
  10. I like to dress the part to play golf. Not overly so... just reasonable... respect for the game. Years ago, while living in Miami I met a guy on the first tee wearing cut-off levis, tee-shirt and barefoot. Easy mark... we made a bet on the round. I shot a 76... should have skunked him. He shot a 67. Lesson quickly learned.
