    SmoothG got a reaction from GaDawg in Selling on Ebay, buyer wants to make payment through phone   
    It's a scam. Common in this situation is for them to overpay you and then ask you to forward the extra to their "assistant" or someone similar. They use fraudulent funds which gets reversed but you've already sent the "extra" to someone so you get double screwed.

    Not separately.  Got to keep it available for whoever purchases the putter.  Thanks.

    I can't stop thinking about picking up a TM Spider X!  My putting has been terrible lately and the Spider X is so stable, so reliable.  I feel like all my short putts in the shop and dropping in .  Winters are long here in MI so I'll have plenty of time to save a few bucks and have one next season.

    I've been playing the TP5.  I hit the X a little longer but it feels slightly firmer than I'd like.  I love everything about the TP5 except the price.  I've been looking for something cheaper without sacrificing too much.  After the '19 test and this one as well I'm thinking Maxfli might just be the ticket.  I know feel is subjective but does anyone have an opinion of the Maxfli Tour & X feel compared to the TP5/X?  Thanks

    TM bought Adams for their patents.  You will def see an Adams players club again only it will be stamped Taylormade. They took all of Adams tech (speed slots etc...) and put it in their top line clubs.

    ** Disclaimer - I'm not a great golfer, lol **
    I was caught in the endless cycle of tee game strong, short game weak and vice versa.  Here is what I have found from my experience.  The reason I was struggling was because there is a difference from hitting a driver with a neutral or positive AOA vs hitting an iron/wedge/fairway with a negative AOA.  When my positive AOA was on point, I would crush my driver but then struggle with my irons.  When my negative AOA was shinning, irons were pure but the driver was erratic.  I could never quite figure out how to deliver the club with the driver and the irons consistently at the same time.  So I had a decision to make... I could commit to practicing/lessons and learn the correct way to deliver the club to the ball but that would require more practice and with a wife/kids/career etc I'd much rather spend my time playing.  The practice time I do have is used to work on my wedges/putting.  My decision was to abandon the positive AOA delivery (and the driver altogether).  Every other club in the bag I can deliver with a negative AOA and don't have to change anything between clubs.  Now I just hit 3-wood off the tee as my longest club.  I'm hitting the ball much straighter and more importantly I'm not losing balls (and costing me strokes) off the tee.  I also mostly play tees that are 6500 yards and under and its making my time on the course much more enjoyable.  Yes I'm hitting a lot more 6-8 irons into the green, rather than wedges but my scrambling is much improved (due to that being what I spend 90% of my practice time on).  This is just my experience on the course and I'm not even sure there is advice in my post but hopefully something in there might help you out.

    SmoothG got a reaction from Rtracymog in General truths for driver distance?   
    I'm gonna disagree with this point here. Wilson and Top Flite are not in the same category. While Wilson doesn't have the same market share as the big boys, their quality is every bit as good. Some of the stock shaft offerings might not work for everyone but if you are fit properly (as you should be with every club) they are not lacking. Do not look over Wilson.  They put out tremendous clubs that can keep up with the big guys at a lower price point, similar to what Cobra is doing.  Also Tour Edge was not listed in your "must try" but they are excellent as well.

    It has nothing to do with instagram or with the forum.  When you donate you provide contact information and they use that information to contact you if you when.   In the past there has been a live feed of the drawing on various social media platforms.
