  5. John California 8.0 I currently use a range finder but it is cumbersome to keep pulling it out. I would prefer to have ready access to yardage to see if it increases pace of play (not that I am slow!)
  6. I am assuming that a MGA is the same as a men's club at your course. If I am incorrect, sorry. In my experience, part of the reason for MGA events is so that you can play with and meet other members apart from your "cronies". I was a men's club officer at a country club years ago and that is one of the things we wanted to achieve - otherwise it's not much different than a typical weekend round. I assume that you ordinarily play in groups with the guys you enjoy playing with so one weekend with guys you don't know is no big deal, IMO. You may even like the guys or have something in common -who knows. As for which tees to play, six of one, half dozen of the other. Not sure of the make up of the tournament, but there will probably be less players from the blacks, so I would lean in that direction. Just my .02
  7. Let me say two things here - great choice of photos (Love the Big Lebowski as you can tell from by profile photo) and Archer is one of my favorite shows. Way to go macvoy!!
  8. Not often enough which is why I just bought a BrushPro from Frogger. Just joined Moorpark CC where the carts (no walking allowed) have club and ball washers on them so I am aspiring to clean my clubs after every shot. Now just looking for good iron head covers! Does anyone ever wax their club heads?
  9. Great post for us newbies. However, I don't see a Miura logo in the selection list. I know it is not the most popular brand, but ...
  10. Abandoned the idea of the Brainstorm and decided to pick up a used Piretti Tour Only putter instead.
  11. I actually don't mind the blue and green colors of the original but I agree on the price. They may price themselves out of the market.
  12. The problem for me with the new Tour is that it is not a center shafted putter which is the style I prefer.
  13. Yeah, that's why I am trying to grab one on Ebay for less than $200.00. Dick's is selling them for 229.00 with free shipping but I don't want to spend more than $175.00 if I don't have to. Would be fund to tinker a bit and I could live with the hit if I don't like it. I can always re-sell it on Ebay.
  14. Does anyone have any experience with the Brainstorm Happy Putter? As a tinkerer, it looks like a blast to be able to adjust loft and lie. I've read some good reviews but don't really trust reviews from Golf magazines who get paid to test equipment. Would like feedback from actual users. Thanks. From Brainstorm: "Putting conditions change, Putting strokes change, now your putter can change also. The Happy Putter allows golfers to custom fit themselves everytime they play. Fast greens, slow greens, grainy greens, no problem. Trying a new putter stance? No problem. Frustrated because you are pulling or pushing your putts? We got that covered. The Happy Putter features an aluminum face pressed against a poly urethane loft shim that provides the perfect balance of feel and feedback to optimize distance control. The blue anodized finish is not only beautiful and unique, but also extremely durable. The custom over-sized grip, which has a patent pending, feels great in your hands no matter what grip style you prefer. With three different lie options, three different loft options, three different off set options, and three different sets of weights, rest assured knowing the putter you need will be in your bag, and while you may not have a tour representative providing advice on how to adjust your putter, you will have access to the free Happy Putter App, which will tell you how to adjust your putter for any conditions you come across. Golfers have been waiting a long time for the next big idea in putters, are you Happy now? : ) PUTT HAPPY"
  15. Center Shafted David Whitlam Year of the Dragon Putter.
  16. Having collected Bettinardi putters in the early 2000's, it is great to see that the brand has not compromised (as I thought they did there for a while going with Mizuno). Sadly, I am parting with a part of my collection simply because such beautiful putters should not sit around in the back of a closet. Currently part of my collection is for sale on ebay along with a very rare Rack. Still keeping several Japanese market Bettinardi's and some copper headed putters as part of my collection, along with my gamers. A couple of the putters I am selling:
  17. John Levitt, Thousand Oaks, CA 8 handicap I have been out of the game for 3 years after neck surgery. I think the DST will help me regroove my swing and get me back to a 3 or lower. Thanks
  18. New member here and, Yes, I live in Thousand Oaks, CA. As I mentioned in my introduction, I have been out of the game for the past three years due to neck surgery, and my former home course (Lost Canyons) has now closed. I am looking to join another course and have narrowed it down to the following: Wood Ranch - an American Golf course Rustic Canyon Moorpark Golf Club Saticoy Country Club I would join Saticoy in a heartbeat if only it was closer to my house - not fond of a 30 minute drive each way. Not sure how many Mygolfspy members are from my area, but looking for input and recommendations. North Ranch and Sherwood are really not considerations - way too much money IMO. Thanks in advance.
  19. Lucky all those trees are 90% air!! ;-) Beautiful course.
