  1. I can follow the ball for most of the flight but notice that I always lose contact when it gets ready to hit the ground. It's like my eyes/brain want to refocus. I have a couple pair of Oakley Prisms, including the new ones that are supposed to be darker. Nice sunglasses, but they don't help tract the ball any better Sent from my Moto Z2 Play using Tapatalk
  2. We play with a large group of other members (men and women) and most are pretty comfortable having conversations even while putting or hitting the ball. There's usually music blaring in the background as well. As long as you expect it, as a ongoing conversation, everyone does it. Making an unexpected sound like throwing your club in the bag or unzipping something loudly during someone's swing will get your throat slit and thrown into the hazards however. You'll also never hear positive reinforcement for your ball in-flight either. It's always 'get in the water' or trap, etc. A few of the ladies started it all, but it turns out golf is more fun when you voice what your really thinking. Very polite with strangers across the board of course.
  3. I'm 53, play golf almost every day, and I've never had one. I've only seen 3 in person and all of them have taken place in the last 18 months or so. Maybe it means that mine is right around the corner #1 happened at the club championship and the guy in my foursome refused to take the 9 stroke max limit on holes. He was rocking a score of about 125 thru 16 before he aced #17. #2 was in a scramble and the guy bombed a driver into the flag on a par 4 to drop straight into the hole. #3 was also in a scramble and the guy won a car. The guy kept crying the rest of the round and the dealership made everyone's life miserable for the next week trying to scare us into recanting even though they had 4 employees on the hole to witness. Would have been OK with missing this one.
  4. Not being able to touch the pin has been one of the greatest things ever to happen to golf. No more pulling it for some and putting it back in for others, and it's certainly cut down on the chumps that like to throw the pin down on the green (one of my personal pet peeves).
  5. May just be me, but give me 10 rounds on 5 courses with the exact same 128 slope rating and I can probably guarantee that there's going to be a consistent 5-6 stroke difference in the average score on at least 3 of the courses.
  6. We've got gps units in the carts at the club. Tend to use them up until the approach shots because it's instant feedback when your already sitting there looking at it and then lasers from then on. Not much more frustrating than hitting a good shot and then finding your on the wrong tier of the green because you're too lazy to pull out the LRF for a measurement that will tell you the pin is on the back when it looks like it's in the front on an elevated green. If you had to pick just one, I think you would have to go with the LRF and it's by a pretty wide margin.

  8. I bought 6 dozen of these because it's been so windy in Oklahoma this spring and teeing up ProV1s and losing them was making me a little anxious. After 30-40 rounds I've probably had 10 drives that felt like I absolutely nutted them die short, but for the most part I've been pretty happy with them. Haven't found myself making any adjustments in irons regarding distance.

    I bought some about a month back and still had some significant scuffing/cover durability issues. They get pretty marred up with full wedge shots and it's 50:50 if you would want to keep it in play if one hits a cart path, etc. Couldn't fault the ball characteristics, but they get a little pricy when other options in the same category are playable until you lose them.
  10. Have the same take. Love the grips 9 months out of the year, but there's not enough cording for when it's 90* plus and humid. Bought a can of Golf Tac at golf galaxy the other day and it seems to help a lot. Just spray a quick squirt on your glove or grip and you're good to go for 6-7 holes. I also bought a towel called Gorilla Gold but haven't tried it yet. Sent from my Moto Z2 Play using Tapatalk

  13. I used to not keep track of my score total during a round. If I was doing well, I didn't want the added pressure. If I had a couple bad holes, I tended to chase strokes (and that never ends well). We got new carts at the club (with GPS/scoring screens) and it's significantly harder to just ignore it. Either being desensitized by having it your face all the time, or just getting serious about a pre-shot routine (my best guess) has pretty much taken all the anxiety regarding real-time totals for me.
  14. Seems around here that the prices of the more expensive courses is determined by how many rounds they want to be played annually not revenue Sent from my XT1058 using Tapatalk
