  1. If you have been fitted then you know what specs accommodate you. If you buy off the rack then...well you take what you're dealt. So I would think that an accomplished player knowing his or her swing could either adjust the clubs themselves, or know where to go to do so. Off the rack people would still review the same as if they just bought off the rack. In short the players in "the know" have the experience to review a club knowing the discrepancies versus a perfect fit. At least that's what I will continue to have faith in as I read and evaluate these reviews.
  2. My miss is a push with the putter. Closing the face only complicates the stroke. Coming from someone who has dealt with the "rights" for years my advice is to pick a very precise routine and set-up when putting. And practice that stroke/set-up at home. Once you straighten out the stroke the routine will aid you in replicating it on the course.
  3. Growing up I had a pet Canadian Goose. Best pet ever. It would fly next to me when I went boating, we swam together, and at night would guard the front door. The neighbors hated it because of the "droppings". But it was a lot of fun. Surprisingly I witnessed it chase off several dogs and raccoons throughout the years. They can definitely be territorial.
  4. Tiger did more for the game than any other individual ever. When he was at his best I do not believe anyone before or since has played at that level. Many of the players he competes against today are products of his success. 79 wins, 14 majors (including Grand Slam), lowest scoring avg ever, and the list goes on. But yea I'm one of those guys that didn't like him. I didn't like his attitude when things weren't going his way (throwing clubs, cursing, etc.), while not his fault I hated when he would get more airtime than the leader, and if I'm going to be honest I really didn't like the fact that he threatened Jack 's major wins record. Now I'm pulling for him. What a great story it would be if he could come back and win. He is older, hopefully wiser, and I hope he gets better. Just not more than 3 more majors better.
  5. Do the boxes come open? (inspected?)
  6. I've been kicking around the idea of giving cigarone a try. Is the process of buying the same as U.S. based vendors? How have your experiences been?
  7. I misread the title. I thought it was Tiger's back.....
  8. I actually left my entire bag of clubs at a course. Playing mini games with friends at a 27 hole course 45 min. from my home. We were enjoying adult beverages at the rate of 6 plus per 9 holes (I didn't drive). Literally just left my clubs on the back of the cart. 2 days later I call my buddy to inform him that I needed to get my clubs out of the back of his Suburban. He promptly replied that he didn't have them. I called the course, and they gave me the run around, claimed they never found them. The next day I drive out to the course and I see my bag in the Pro's equipment room. Even after telling the pro what he would find in each pocket, and the fact that there were golf balls with my name on them he was hesitant to release the clubs to me. His reason behind this was that a member had told him that the clubs belonged to a friend of his. So right before I went postal I remembered that I was custom fit for my Pings, and even ordered additional wedges with matching serial #'s. Therefore I had tangible proof that the clubs were mine. I contacted Ping, Ping notified the Pro who was an authorized dealer and 3 days later I had my clubs back. Needless to say, I haven't been back to that course since.
  9. I have won raffles at tournaments, but nothing online. I have had friends win upwards of $20,000 at our local Moose lodge but I think I use up all my luck up on the course. And that's o.k. with me.
  10. Lets get 2 more, and schedule it on a Sunday.
  11. I've been wanting to hit Darby creek in Marysville. Any interest from the Cbus folks in traveling a little north?
  12. I too have struggled with anxiety during competitive golf matches. When I was a junior it definitely had a negative effect on my game. By forcing myself in to tourney after tourney I began to handle it much better. I think playing really bad helps this more than playing well. To be honest, nowadays I really look forward to a game where the stakes are high enough for me to get the butterflies. Keep playing in that club championship, and look at the nerves as something that adds importance to your game instead of shining a spotlight on your mistakes.
  13. I voted yes, but Chisag makes an interesting point. I may wait for a general conscientious from those that have experienced them before I buy a box.
