    Matte Red

    The only matte ball I've played was a Volvik I bought from a bucket next to the checkout line. I liked the appearance, but wasn't particularly fond of that ball. I am definitely planning on trying more colors this year and I like the matte finishes.
  2. I was reading a little about him after he won the youth event at TPC Myrtle Beach a couple weeks ago. It's going to be interesting to see how he does.
  3. Exactly. That's why I am not a Tiger fan nor was I a Michael Jordan fan. I certainly respect their abilities, but I also did not need to see/hear about them every second.
  4. I like his game, but not his temper. I also wish he would have admitted he made a stupid mistake last week instead of his lame explanation.
  5. Phone in back left pocket, score card in back right pocket (if walking and if I happen to be keeping score), full tee and a broken tee in front left pocket, ball marker, divot tool and spare/putting ball in front right pocket. Yeah, I know switching balls mid-hole is a no-no, but I don't play serious competitions and it's easier to pull a clean ball out than try to clean ball I've tortured on the way to the green.
  6. Down to 210.4 this morning - getting closer to my <200 goal! We bought one of the fancy scales after I had lost about 10 lbs. It has been nice to track aspects besides weight, too. For example, my BMI is down from 31.7 in late July last summer to 29.5 this morning. One metric I would like to see change is my metabolic age - it has stayed steady at 56. I am only 51.
  7. That is certainly a random thought.... Thanks for replacing the terrible song that has floating through my head all morning.
  8. @DocFletchLXG, thanks for adding pics, it totally added a different dimension than just the list - that is a great mix of equipment!
  9. Not to moderate the moderator, but wouldn't this be more appropriate in the happy thread?
  10. One of the things that helped me from that distance is backing off my swing a bit. I CAN hit my gap wedge about 110 or a bit more, but it's erratic (like you, more height, less distance). Anything over 100-105 has become a choked down/partial PW. 125-130 is about my stock PW distance.
  11. My basement and garage are both low headroom, so I have no room to swing anything in the off-season. I've hit enough at various stores over the winter that I'm feeling pretty good about some minor changes I made with the driver, but need to get a range for verification. It's 53 today, so I might be able to sneak out this afternoon.
  12. It's always interesting to me how people can have similar handicaps but achieve them in completely different ways. Admittedly, I have never seen data like yours for myself, so I might be entirely wrong, but if I played a par 3 course with all holes in the 100 - 120 range, I'm pretty comfortable saying I could probably shoot well under my handicap with regularity. Make them all 60 yards, and the struggles begin. Make all the holes 400 yards, straight, and tight, I'd probably end up a 30 HC since driver is my (perceived) biggest weakness.
  13. I love them. For reference, this is what they are replacing and what I bought last year. I like the color and texture they have added to this years' model.
  14. If it is as accurate as you were hitting the Bridgestone with more length, that baby would be a keeper. You were automatic when we played in Columbus.
  15. For what it's worth, I see you on the entry list
  16. Nice to see a lady golfer posting! Is it safe to assume you've been playing about 4.5 years? Welcome to the forum!
  17. Welcome and thanks for posting. Please include some pictures when you get a chance. I like to see the goods.
  18. I plan on watching the recording tonight. I'm not a huge fan (nor a detractor) but the media's "mad scientist" schtick is growing a little thin on me. Patrick Reed was another one I saw on Feherty in which he changed my opinion of him a bit.
  19. I also assume there was the thing called "grain" that we never contend with up here? I know when I was in Myrtle Beach last year, it took us a long time to figure out what the grain might be doing to our putts and it still didn't make a lot of sense, at times.
  20. He's played with me. He knows bad golf....
  21. I was thinking the same thing as it happened. The caddy clearly didn't like the choice but the boss was adament.
  22. Definitely! I loved it when Feherty referred to him as looking like a homeless person robbed a Nike store.
  23. Just once, I want to make a point of beating @Shankster to the punch of getting the next tournament thread started.
  24. It was a great ending, although I was really pulling for Furyk. Agreed. DJ seems to be in a similar situation. He missed something like 50% of his putts inside 10 feet - if he makes half of those, the result might have been different. If DJ and Rory could get more consistent with their putting, just about every weekend could be a two horse race. Personally, I would love to see those two separate themselves from the pack.
  25. I have the same championship game, with a slightly different outcome!
