  1. Mine is not a very lengthy list, but it's been fun: Countries: England, Japan, Korea, Zambia... States: Utah, Arkansas, Hawaii, New Mexico, Georgia, Florida, Nevada @Philly Golf Guy look me up when you plan your New Mexico trip, I'd love to hit the links with you.
  2. I feel like it just depends on the other people I'm playing with. I'm not a huge conversation starter, but I can keep one going and stay engaged throughout a round if it's a good one. During tournaments I'll typically only talk to the person I'm in a cart with or the occasional pleasantries with the other 2 guys. I've played with guys that are always joking (running over your ball and whatnot) and it doesn't bother me really, I can joke back...but usually I'm more of the encouraging type.
  3. @MattF that's unfortunate, you would've thought they would've let you play thru. I'm with @tony@CIC it's very frustrating to have to wait on every hole...especially during these times when courses that are open aren't allowing any more than 2 per hole...at least that's what I've read.
  4. Congrats & Happy Birthday, hope you had a blessed day and even more so throughout this next year.
  5. I know what you mean about it feeling like it's been an eternity since being able to get out on the course. I played in a tournament on 3/15, and was schedule to play in another one the following weekend, but the season has been cancelled until 5/15. They closed all courses in NM until at least 4/30, but I drove by one yesterday that was all locked up (you couldn't even drive into the parking lot), but low and behold there were a couple of guys wearing masks teeing off on #4. You're game is looking much improved from the beginning of '19, keep it up! Looking forward to reading more about your progress this year. Also, thanks for the info on the Greg Nuckols' 28 Programs.
  6. That looks nice, and you have some great ideas to add some break into your putts...interested to see how the finished product turns out down the road.
  7. He sure did have some iconic hits.
  8. Never thought I'd see the day that my wife tells me, "why don't you go golf...oh, and take the kids with you."

  10. Wow! Only 6 years old and a +2, this guy's gonna be the GOAT! Just kidding! Happy Birthday @jayjay0808, may you be richly blessed this year.
  11. Congrats guys! Looking forward to this review and your fitting of these 2 sets of irons. Have fun out there!
  12. Also, check out @jwlong410 's last post in the Wedge Setup - Need Help! thread...there's a great video from Padriag Harrington
  13. @Sluggo42 are you using a tripod to set this up? If anyone has pictures of how they set it up, that would be helpful. Thank you.
  14. I was gonna say the same thing...very brave @Average Mo Also, if you get a chance to check out TXG videos, there are some recent ones with Matt going through some chipping / pitching drills...this might help with the digging.
  15. I downloaded the app, but when I open it there is a pop-up that says "Device Not Supported" which is weird, because the info on the app in the app store says that it requires iOS 11.1 or later, and I'm running the latest version on an iPhone 11. Did anyone else have this happen to them?
  16. I'm an estimator for a mechanical contractor so I'm basically doing the same things I would do everyday (work wise), except I have a much shorter commute, don't waste any gas, and work from a much smaller computer monitor. The kids think it's great to have dad home and conference calls are more of a challenge, but at least I can take a break every now and then and practice my chipping and pitching strokes...without a ball of course. I had been working on bouncing the ball on my wedge to see how many times I could do it in a row, but that was inflaming my elbow. Great to hear & see what you all have been doing to stay sane during this time. I told the wife that there's gonna be a lot of babies born 9 months from now, and unfortunately I'm sure there will be a lot of divorces as well.
  17. Exactly what I'm saying...that we all need to heed the warnings and stay in as much as possible...but that's obviously not happening, just look @Shankster posts in this feed about people going out all over the place. This was my point, that people can be told over and over again what needs to be done, but some people only learn by going through the "fire", or being dumb as you put it in one of your earlier posts...you can't blame the government for that.
  18. Thanks for sharing this with us...great info from a "boots on the ground" perspective.
  19. I completely agree that China was misleading, and even might still be. However, I'm not so sure we can blame anyone but our typical American lifestyle. Here's what I mean by that: China is a socialist/communist country and their government can control the movement of their citizens...but in America the citizens are prideful and won't submit to any authority in their lives...so the government can warn the people to stay inside until they're blue in the face, but people are still gonna do what they want (a.k.a. NYC). It's kind of funny to me that there are some many young people in this county that want socialism, but they would be the first ones to tell the socialist government, "you can't tell me what to do."
  20. You better check out the SM8's first. @Sluggo42 Are you still baggin' these wedges, or are you playing the Hogans in your signature block?
  21. My thoughts exactly...what was the point of the mini fitting if you're just gonna change things in the final to get the outcome you really want? The results of the Mavrik in the simis were closer to the SZX finals results. Obviously the Mavrik is a solid driver, and I'm interested to see what other changes they make to it.
  22. Interesting that they put the weight tape on the Mavrik in the final and not from the get go. I would've liked to see if it would've won without the weight tape. I understand that they did that to get them to a more equal swing weight, but they didn't do that throughout the bracket challenge. It will be cool to see what adjustments Ian makes before it goes in Matt's bag.
  23. Both of those bags you linked are nice looking, they both remind me of a Vessel, which @joen mentioned. I've never heard of Asher Golf, so thanks for that link, and the sale price on the Sun Mountain is insane. I recently purchased a new Mizuno bag, just like the one @jlukes posted in "What have you bought lately" thread...but once I switched all my clubs and gear over to the new Mizuno bag, I realized that the bag I had wasn't in that bad of shape and I like how all of the pockets were arranged...plus I needed new wedges more than a new bag, so I returned the bag and got the wedges. All that to say, the Mizuno bag is a quality bag and something worth looking into. Ping Hoofer is also a very quality bag, I've had teaching pros / Callaway reps recommend the Ping Hoofer bag.

  24. Congrats guys! As a Ping player, I'm looking forward to your reviews of these irons.
  25. I've been looking into it as well, but haven't purchased yet. There are some reviews on YouTube, but I feel like it would be best suited for outdoor use since it has 4 holes for tees to hold it in place.
