    I recently bought a set of 32s 3-PW.  I put KBS Tour shafts in them.  They are fairly beaten up with bag chatter but the faces are good, which is the main thing I'm concerned about.  I absolutely love them.  I've even enjoyed hitting the long irons.  My only reservation is one time recently when I was at the range and I must've been getting too steep with my contact because the club felt like it was digging.  Obviously that was user error, but I have seen that as a criticism of them.  Otherwise, I'm extremely happy with them.    

    I asked Javier Ballesteros what Seve played in his last open.  They were MP-32’s... 👍🏼 Love your username Sir.

    Left dash is close to, if not the firmest tour ball on the market. I couldn’t stand the sound and feel off the putter 

    I thought it was going to crack my driver.  It’s like hitting a piece of granite.

    Not a gripe, more of a "concern"...I love being involved with my kids and their sports, but I'm going to have to get damn creative to get my rounds in this year.  This is my 5-year old son's T-ball schedule.

    His older brother (7) is in a select traveling team league, and has practices/games three times a week as well.  And, he starts a junior golf league in the middle of May.

    Looking forward to it all, really, just looking forward to some golf too!

    Looks like Thursday’s and Sunday’s are open. 🙃

    Ah Magic I am really surprised that's still so popular. I dabbled a little bit, as I've got a box floating around somewhere. But I'm glad that hobby missed me as it's crazy expensive to build a good deck. I was a little too old when Pokemon hit, but some of my friend's younger brothers were into it, and now my friend's kids.

    I play Dungeons & Dragons now.

     


    Take Dead Aim
     

     

    Yeah, I never played magic.  Collected the cards over 1995-1998... unfortunately I missed all of the editions worth something. 🤦🏼‍♂️
     

    I never really heard of Pokémon till that game came out a few years ago and people were walking around like zombies.  I knew it was there, just not much about it.

    Any comic book stores around you? my niece was into them and I always went to our local comic store to get the packs.

    Still pissed I didnt save mine from my younger years! Could have made a little pocket change!

    Not that I know of.  I had my mom check back home too.  They are sold out everywhere I checked.  I refuse to pay $10 for something that was $3.99 from the manufacture.

    I have two huge boxes of magic cards from my childhood, but they are not interested in those.

    Yeah, and he had a triple and double bogey in the process.  Make those pars or even a bogey and he is possibly putting on his 2nd green jacket. 

    I'm already suffering PMS.....Post Masters Syndrome...thank you!     How many days until the 2022 Masters and who is the "way too early" as the call it betting favorite.

     

     

    358 days, and a right handed player.

    While Henrik's prowess with the 3w is near legend, I'm wondering if he's now just losing too much ground to the field off the tee?  

    Well.  206 in driving distance... he’s giving up a lot!

    Ah, I remember it so well even if it was 54 or so years ago!!  Thing is... it did prepare me for my job assignments at work for many years after that.  Good experience!!  😃

    I am used to it.  Happens all the time in my line of work.  Something comes up that has a ridiculous time constraint... I think I produce better work under the pressure... but I have nothing to compare it to.  Haha.

    So of those at -7.  Who shoots the lowest round tomorrow?  What do they shoot and is it enough to overtake Hideki. 
     

    I hope Hideki pulls it off.  Out of the -7’s, Rose and Leishman wouldn’t be bad... if not one of those 3, Jordan would be the only other player left in the field that If like to see win. Except Stenson, but he’s too far back.

    I'm a fan but after playing here for as long as he has you would think he wouldn't need a translator.  

    I remember an interview from a while ago, he said they always talk to him with a translator but he can speak English well.  I think...?  Maybe it was someone else

  11. Man.... T’was the night before the Masters... and I am pretty darned excited.  Going to listen tomorrow through the app.  Makes me want The Open to happen next week since we didn’t get one last year.

    Sorry, this is off topic for the thread but I had to bring up my awful experience with Bubba.

    I was his standard bearer at the PGA Championship in 2011. The night before the first round he had a fan event at the local PGA Superstore and didn't speak a word to anyone. Just kept his head down, signed whatever you had, and moved on to the next item. He cancelled the long drive contest for that event too, said he didn't have time for that "crap". I shrugged it off thinking he was just feeling ill or something.

    The next day is when I was standard bearer for his group. We had an 8:45 tee time and rounding out our group was Ian Poulter and Jeff Overton. On the 1st hole (our 10th), Bubba hit a bad drive followed by a poor approach that left him in the sand. While walking to our spot behind the green, Bubba starts yelling at me and the walking scorer and then cusses at us while leaving to go to the next hole. He shot glares at me the entire rest of the round. Ted Scott apologized multiple times and said Bubba gets this way sometimes. The other players gave me their autographed ball after the round and Bubba brushed by me and took off. Ted asked if I even wanted a ball from him considering the way he was acting and I said sure so he got me one. I didn't do anything to deserve how he treated me and it was super embarrassing for the entire gallery to see it. I was a huge fan leading up to that week but now he's my least favorite person I've ever had the displeasure of meeting.

    And my friends with Tour connections have all confirmed that he isn't very likeable and they weren't surprised with what happened. Anyway, story time is over.

    Yeah. That sucks, sorry you had a bad run in with him.

    Was pretty surprised to see a position open up to work at Gillette stadium in facilities. Just applied, not expecting much as its a leap frog over a Senior Facilities Manager that I have not worked as yet but.....F it worth a shot. 

    The Blue Wahoo’s need a facility manager.  Walked by there and every alarm in their pump room was going off... sounded like the electric light orchestra.  Give Bubba a shout... 🙃

    That's fair; honestly I don't dislike the guy...the caricatures and impressions of him are just funny to me.

    Definitely adds some flare to the game, unlike some of the blander players out there... like I can’t get excited for golf when Kuchar, or say Xander are in the lead... it’s just dry, boring golf. 🤣
