  1. Welcome to the forums. You get out of it what you put into it. Actually I have gotten much more than I've been able to give. Welcome, welcome.
  2. Looks like the Maxfli Tour deals are over. Seems they have jumped to 109 for 4 doz. I wonder if that was because of the up coming USGA/RA decision on ball roll backs? Trying to capitalize on potential ball grab?
  3. @BallsLeon looks like that @GolfSub70 009 mallet is still agreeing with you. Nice stats.
  4. For me, I started when I was 10 or so. It was a way for me to get some "me time" with my dad. I just enjoyed the game and found I was OK at it. I stay at it cause it is a fun sport that I can play at my age and play it pretty well. Hitting just one flushed in a round, or making that 40 foot putt keeps me coming back. Sure the pros can beat the pants off me anytime but every now and then, "I" actually hit a shot/putt as good as any pro.
  5. Trust what your Dr says and your PT guy. Listen to them and heed their advise. You're retired now so take the time to do it right. Best of luck to you man.
  6. Nothing new from anyone else. My vote is not fixing the ball marks on the green. Easy to do. I've volunteered at courses as a ranger and one of out duties was to walk the greens and repair ball marks. That takes a bunch of time, even with a repair tool.
  7. Congratulations folks. I sure hop you have as much fun as I did earlier this year testing. Looking forward to your results.
  8. @William P Glad to hear you are starting back. Welcome to the forum, glad to see it.
  9. Ah man, what beautiful weather. It's great to be alive. Our typical mid Oct weather. Glad you took the chance and headed out. A whole new mind set for sure. Good job.
  10. For me I would say 50/50. Yes the shaft upgrade was cool and yes I could tell the feel difference between my old stand by and my new "in the bag" Sub 70 004. The other 50 was definitely the quality of their milling. Top notch. @GolfSub70 has a winner there.
  11. @Mr Orange, really jealous that you were out last week. Way to go man. Glad to hear it.
  12. I'm most certainly a shag bagger. Have 2, one stays in the truck all the time and one for the yard. I like the flexibility and ease in which to re-gather my shots. I am amazed at how costly they seem to have gotten. Last one I bought was 24.95, quite a few years ago. The bag is wearing thin but still working.
  13. Welcome to the forum @michaeljordy3132. You ask some very interesting questions. Many have been asked before and are posted. Because they have been tossed around before you may not get the results that you are looking for. You might conduct a search for them and add some of your thoughts which will expand that thread. Welcome to the forum.
  14. What are your favorite, non-instructional type of golf books? If you don't want to offend one of your golfing friends by getting him or her a "How to stop slicing" or "Golf Rules for Dummies" book what do you get? These are some of my favorite decent reading books but do center around a golf theme. Currently reading "A Course Called America" by Tom Coyne Then there is a favorite of mine, "Chicken Soup for the Golfer's Soul" by Jack Canfield, Mark Victor Hansen, Jeff Aubery, with Mark and Chrissy Donnelly. A trilogy, "Miracle on the 17th Green" by James Patterson and Peter De Jonge. Followed by "Miracle at Augusta" same authors and "Miracle at St. Andrews". You guessed it, same authors. All five are great reads and in my humble opinion (yes, I'm one of those old farts that types out everything) are well worth it at gift exchange time. If you have some favorites, certainly feel free to add your two cents. Happy Thanksgiving all.
