    Classy move here - shows no ill intent...can't see Burfict doing anything like this.


    I didn't see the hit but did hear it was a legal hit on Mad Dog sports the other day.  If the Eagles hit on the Packers Williams wasn't fined then I'm not sure they should ever fine for hits again.

  2. I hate to give a cop out answer but I think it comes down to the individual. I travel a ton so the league at my club is not an option. The guys I know that play in it love it. The under 35 guys at my club love it because it’s a great deal. The guys turning 35 tell me they probably won’t rejoin because of the bump in price, family, no longer a tax write off, etc...The older retired guys love it because it is their life. They are there every day and that is where all their friends are.

    For me at 51 I’m glad I belong because I can just show up and play at pretty much any time. Pace of play is way better than public. The tournaments are a blast and the people are good. I play more golf than ever because it is easy when compared to public.

    With that being said I find myself getting a little bored playing the same course the majority of the time. I feel like I should play when I really don’t feel like it because I’m paying for it. I have a guy trip to Florida next week and for the first time I’m a little meh about the trip because I’ve played so much this year. But I can’t imagine leaving the club either because the social aspect is great, the convenience can’t be beat and it is great taking my family there for dinner overlooking the course.

    I say go for it but be prepared to be spoiled by access you will have to golf.

  3. I agree....good for the State of California for doing something about the antiquated NCAA rules.  It was just a matter of time and I think the next thing will be the Power 5 conferences leaving the NCAA altogether.

  4. If there was ever a week for Kamara to lay an egg it is this week. Down in both matchups and they both have Kamara. Gonna need a big night from Cooper, probably at least 10 more points than Alvin to have a chance. If not, I may just blow up my team again and give players away!

  5. Shot a 79 today with the new Launchers. A double and a triple killed my score. Really just 2 bad shots lead to what could have been a 76. The Halo 2 hybrid is really good. I was using the Cobra 3/4 wood and the Halo is the same distance but much more accurate with the shorter shaft. Flies a little lower but hasn’t hurt me yet and is great in the wind.

  6. I would normally say "screw fantasy" too, except I drafted Lamar Miller (on IR), Saquan Barkley (Out), and just started Jamaal Williams last night (Out)
    Screw my fantasy team is more like it.

    I had Lamar Miller too and that’s how I ended up with Williams. I’d rather the guy not get his head pounded in than score fantasy points.

    I guess to flesh out my thought, and not at all to bump this thread, is that it's going to come down the performance of the 4 iron in the Turbo. As it sits also at a good hybrid type gap for me, it'll be interesting to see how it performs both in gapping to the 5 iron with the three degrees of difference vs a 20* hybrid. This is only a consideration because the site offers a 5-PW set for purchase, with the knowledge that I'll also likely get some new wedges (looking at you CBX-2 and/or RTX-4) and reworking the top of my bag with the following potential options


    3W, 5W, 4-PW Launcher

    3W, 3H, 4-PW Launcher

    3W, 3&4 H, 5-PW Launcher

    3W, 5W, 4H, 5-PW Launcher

    4W, 3&4 H, 5-PW Launcher


    And that's if I stay with going to the Launcher HB Turbo's, which I'm really learning toward at this point in time. But it's early in the new season and I'm looking to buy some stuff to really refocus my golfing efforts as this was kinda a lost season for me.

    I highly recommend the Launcher 4 iron and going with the 4-PW if possible.  I ordered the "D" wedge from the Launcher set when I was selected for testing and never got along with it.  My Launcher 4 iron transitions gap wise right to my D7 3 hybrid which is 19 degrees.  The 4 iron is money and a big reason I went from a 13 handicap to around an 8 with this set.  Straight, accurate and the distance is so consistent.  I started using it off the tee a bunch on shorter par 4's.

    I've enjoyed my CBX wedges but I bought my son a Tommy Armour wedge the other day and was chipping with it in the backyard and boy do I miss the feeling of a blade wedge.  Not saying you need Tommy Armour wedges but a blade wedge seems to give you more options around the green than the chunky CBXs do.


  8. Oh yeah it isn’t the tee, it is having the same tee height every time. As rounds wore on the wooden tees would creep up on me. I’m sure I’ll be cussing these things next time out.
