  1. Still gaming my 34" Marilyn for about 17 years now, been a great putter.
  2. Vegas lost a gem back in December when Royal Links shut down for housing. This has been a trend the last few years with Silverstone, Badlands, Black Mountain and now Royal Links closing. Now word just came out that Desert Pines is next on the chopping block soon for housing/parks. With water at a premium and demand for housing up, Vegas will probably lose 1/3 to 1/2 of the remaining courses in the next 20 years.
  3. My experience was positive. A year ago, I got a bonus from now former employer and decided to get a new driver to replace my Callaway Diablo 10.5 degree. Made an appointment and met the fitter Julian who had me warm up. After warm up, he took my numbers using the Diablo which showed 3-4k sidespin thus getting a lot of fades as well as loss of distance (180-220 yards). We tried different manufacturers and shafts but found excellent results with the TSi2 9 degree with 60 gram Hzrdus smoke shaft which gave me 20 more yards on the monitor while reducing my sidespin to 2k or less. Now I am not an expert on components but I can see enough data to get the driver. I placed the order at ~ 650 with fitting waived and was told 6-8 weeks which turned more into 11 but once I got it, it has become a fairway finder and now I am hitting it between 240-260. Could I have gotten those numbers at any big box location or independent fitter, maybe so and then again maybe not. Golf here in Vegas is transient with stores and courses closing left and right. I just learned recently that Julian is no longer with CC so while I am very happy with my purchase, someone else may not. As with a lot of things, YMMV.
  4. Live in Vegas and usually enjoy playing SM. Joleen, what has happened with the bunkers?

  11. I picked up a box when they arrived at my local Costco. I've put 3 rounds on them and they are fairly straight, don't really see any loss off driver and putt pretty well. Best positive I can give is that the ball checks up with no roll out unlike other balls in low/mod price range. Only negative is that it does scuff pretty easy but overall for the price, it's good. Now if they would come out in yellow. Sent from my SM-G930V using MyGolfSpy mobile app
