  1. I think it'd be a bit frustrating for golfers who have ordered and not received stuff in 2021, to see 2022 products coming out. I have a friend who's been waiting for a 425 driver for several months. Even though Ping is on a longer product into cycle - if it was my driver, I'd be furious to see sneak pics of a new Ping driver before I got my 'old' one.
  2. And a 4some of birthdays! Have a great one guys.
  3. I stand corrected - thanks for posting this approach.
  4. And when they miss a putt they smile vs. slamming down their putters like Sergio or Rhambo.
  5. FYI I did find that it acquires a course that you regularly play quicker then a new one. The other thing I've done is 'unsubscribed' to courses in my area that I don't play. Not sure if that speeds up the gps acquisition and also if that frees up memory in the watch.
  6. Yes the tags are tied to the club, as an example a lob wedge tag is a lob wedge, you indicate the type of club in the setup. I believe (I'm speculating here) the only way you could get a comparison of a particular type of club would be to use one of the extra tags. For instance one L tag would be your old Lob Wedge and the new wedge you could use the X1 tag. Alternatively, if you just swapped them out and were using the old tag, when you go to the Performance tab directly to the right is a 'funnel' shape, you can click on that to see stats by last round, last 5, etc. and then you can see the difference - but obviously more difficult to assess the difference.
  7. I agree with the above comments - except for the PGA athleticism. I've never been to a PGA tournament and seen them up close so can't comment. We regularly go to LPGA tournaments like the Marathon Classic and this year were fortunate to get to the Solheim Cup. I'm amazed how well they hit the ball for their physical shape - which speaks to their skills - Nelly is a prime example. Also they seem to be a bit more thoughtful in club selection off the tee compared to what I see on TV for PGA events where the guys always seem to pull out a driver to bomb it. We were on the first tee at the Solheim and saw some ladies using a driver, others using woods, hybrids or irons. When it comes to the Networks like GC, they do seem to get second fiddle. As @2puttbogey said I'd much rather watch them then KF or Champions events. p.s. The BMW Championship is on this weekend.
  8. I'll echo Rev's comments = although he's a youngster compared to me. I'm in my 70's and was a part of the Official test in 2020. With my short attention span I tend to be on and off with programs like this. 1: Is there a 'short program' that can/should be utilized to maintain swing speed? 2. A question I posed back in 2020 during the official test: my driver (410 with a 55g shaft/Mcc+4 grip) weights quite a bit more than the heaviest 'blue stick'. Should I be focused on improving swing speed with that stick alone?
  9. Most courses aren't left hand friendly.
  10. My wife's experience with an independent fitter out of Macedonia, Ohio: She went through a whole bag fitting with the fitter who spent a lot of time trying different options - end result were new irons and hybrids. Told her her Driver and wedges were perfect - even though both were a few years old. Very satisfied and saved me a bunch of money.
  11. Holy cow I thought we were fast at 240 Mbps
  12. Foot spray or impact tape will show where you're hitting the ball. I assume this is an indoor sim? I just saw an article about Titleist's new ball for indoor sim's - because (supposedly) indoor sim's don't capture spin accurately .
  13. How about convincing them that Tennis is a lot more fun then golf and they can spend quality time with their mother.
  14. I'll second the composite. Be forewarned not all composite is the same so do a bit of research. At our last house we had the combo that @MattFrecommends above. Treated on the posts and joists, then Azek for the decking. We also had plastic sleeves for the posts and rails (maybe timbertek? ) . We also went with a light gray decking with the wood grain showing. If I had to do it again, I would have used a darker color. The light gray shows dirt faster - but easily powerwashes off - just a bit more work if you're OCD like me.
  15. Not to mention facts about yellow ball being able to change colors. It's no wonder I can't find my yellow ball amongst the fall leaves up north. Like a chameleon, it changes colors to the surrounding area.
  16. Didn't see any punch marks but there was definitely sand on the green. They were pretty slow which took quite a bit of adjustment for me.
  17. Interesting - after I get done playing/downloading I charge the watch and then do a shutdown. When I go to turn it back on - which most recently was about 3 weeks since the full charge, the battery was down to about 60%. So it looks like the watch is somewhat active even with a hard shutdown.
  18. Yeah but @Yellow Ballwill have to change its name to @brownball
  19. We're finally beginning to settle in here in Florida. Last time I played was back in Ohio several weeks ago, today was the first time playing in Florida since last year. The Bermuda fairways and greens took a bit of getting use to - but overall not a bad 88. 46 going out and 42 back in. This birdie on a 150 yd Par 3 helped the score.
  20. I played for the first time here in Florida since last spring. Played pretty decently until I got to the long par 5, I swore my yellow ball landed about 4 or 5 feet from the water. Hmm I wonder.......
  21. Have a great Bday @tdroma98
  22. Edit: never mind - just saw the SC200. I thought you needed to hit a ball to register.
