    The transit of my mercurial mojo is inexorably linked to expeditious golfing, surfing tanker wakes, rummaging through thrift stores and commiserating over mutual discontent of the aforementioned.

  1. Did anyone here order a bag full of marshmallows? Immediate thought: forged wool sweater... yeah, I’m sticking with that. Goodness gracious. And that was with range balls. Very eager to burn off some 5-layer urethane ammo.
  2. It’s easy to create a perspective error taking photos down a club shaft. A svelte head ends up looking impossibly tiny against an outsized hosel/shaft. Have a gander at this more neutral ICON 4-iron address pic framed with a ball, and then tell me you can’t almost hear this kitten purring in your ear @PMookie.
  3. Ding, ding, ding - I was hoping the reference would resonate. Seemed particularly poignant for the 2020 we’ve all been sharing. And so far, I say these ICONS are all right!
  4. Bryson has the announcer crew giggling like schoolgirls when he lets the big dog eat... even when he “heel wipes” it. That spinner wedge Wesley Bryan played from the middle of 14 green to the back tier was SUPER salty! Vijay looks like some kind of super villain sporting the silver goatee. I’m picking Hovland to hoist the hardware on Sunday... dude is a beast.
  5. If your Honma lumber delivery arrives before your trip and you want opportunities to air it out at altitude on a big fast layout, just go ahead and book a slot Soldier Hollow and start strategizing. It’s all you want (more than I would want) at 7700, assuming the championship tees are open. +1 on the (224/222) Empire Pass option from PC down into the Heber Valley, but not if you’re running late because @txgolfjunkie ain’t exaggerating about it being twisty. +2 for generally not mixing alcohol + driving in Utah... they don’t mess around. SH is such a well run facility. It never disappoints. I’m tempted to make the 7 hour drive myself. Fingers crossed your new disco stick arrives in time. Have fun!
  6. Kinda wishing I was down at Jamaica Beach right now; and also that a tidal surge would kill off all the sticker burrs in the yard. I played Moody not too long after Ike and it was perfect. I feel like they just dumped some sand in the bunkers and said “there ya go...better than new”? Sort of nuts but I guess that’s the way they designed it.
  7. I just did a quick search and we don't really have an ongoing Bobby Grace general discussion/appreciation thread. @chisag games a 6330 and @aerospace_ray is also somewhat of a fan... probably have a few other BG gamers around here. Most golfers have no idea that Mr. Grace was among the first to introduce serious MOI face balanced mallets with face tech to specifically improve roll and distance control. And he was doing it 15+ years ago! Re: presenting my BG collection - if you'll start a nice Bobby Grace thread, I will post my stuff and we can dig into all his various tech innovations there. Deal? Back to the subject of this thread - no WITB is complete without some background on your headcover game. Whether OEM or Off-The-Wall... Spies want pics Yo!
  8. Nice review @scooterhd2 - looks like the newer Stick-It-Strap has a button cutaway that mine doesn't. "Monument Bad Chad" didn't send me a free one, but my unofficial review ~3 years ago parallels many of your sentiments. Neat that Monument Golf managed to get a foot in the door with the Costco network - I want that towel. Note: be mindful about your scope barrel taking direct Sunlight when it's hanging off a cart roof support.
  9. I think the '08 flood was a blessing in some ways for Lajitas golf operations. Before much of the former Ambush course washed away, they had a helluva of a time keeping turf alive. The conversation was well over a decade ago so it's a little fuzzy, but I remember the Head Pro explaining that their well water temperature was ridiculously hot (geothermal). I would guess the decision to bring in paspalum turf for the Black Jack's Crossing redesign had a lot to do with their hot water situation. Looking at the satellite overhead, they appear to have a big retention pond now. But Summer heat is absolutely brutal down there in the Big Bend; and with as much water as they have to spread around the resort property, getting it cooled off quickly enough is likely still a constant battle. Although probably much less so, thanks to the hardy paspalum. @PlaidJacket may have better insight having recently played it.
  10. I’m glad you and the Blueprints are getting out for a loop @Shankster I understand the attraction of self-deprecation, but painting that blank canvas with storm clouds before you even step on the 1st tee is not the recipe I would recommend. Just try to enjoy being out there and you’ll end up right where you are supposed to be... back in golf’s embrace.
  11. Nice setup @TheBigBobRob! Save for a few brief lapses, I’ve gamed the same Bobby Grace M5K-GT for ~15 years. I think it’s one of the best wands ever made and kinda tough to find with the TC (tour center) hosel like ours. My BG collection has steadily grown over that same period... he makes great stuff. Thanks for sharing!
  12. That bucket might hold some of the lumps but it’s not exactly the container I envisaged. Although I do like where your head is re: grass (hosing down the expectorated crime scene).
  13. I didn’t think anything could be worse than a Cement Mixer, but you may have cracked it with that “Bryson” recipe, pards. Probably best served alongside a big empty bucket.
  14. I’m working on it. In the meantime, it never hurts to have your club Pro put in a friendly call re: reciprocal courtesy for a gentleman like yourself.
