  1. Okay we are back in the rainy season here in Georgia so I thought I'd do an update. First off the suit is holding up well no rips, tears or other issues, in fact, it still looks brand new. I wear the jacket everywhere when it's raining out and still find it very comfortable. I wore the pants as pants for the first time 2 weeks ago, previously I had worn them over golf shorts, and they were quite comfortable. We played on a particularly swampy day and a few swings threw mud all over me, which easily washed off with wet cloth after the round. So almost a year later still loving the Galway Bay rain suit!
  2. @kingcScott Late to the party, but Heritage Golf Links is directly between 20 & 85 on the NE side. Not sure if they allow walkers, but it's certainly walkable.
  3. Played both courses. King and the Bear a little tougher than Slammer & The Squire. Typical Florida flat tracks, nothing overly exciting about either course, but a fun golf weekend for the wife and I.
  4. Many winners here from his/her contest postings.
  5. Same resolution every year, play more. I have not made my resolution for the last 5-6 years.
  6. Favorites of Old: Jack, Arnold & Couples Favorites Today: Phil, Brooks, Jordan
  7. My mother is coming to visit next in 2 weeks and we are going to play some golf while she is here. She is too old to haul her clubs anymore so thinking about using Ship Sticks. Does anyone have any discounts/coupons I might be able to send her? Thanks in advance for any assistance!
  8. Was speaking to some golfers of various ages this weekend about this topic. Answers were across the board from chronic injuries, needing more & more recovery time between rounds, family responsibilities & new passions. One 62 year old has discovered rock climbing as a hobby and travels daily to climbing destinations. I can barely get out of bed in the morning and this guy is rock climbing every day!
  9. I would love to provide an update on the suit, but we have been in a severe drought all summer & it has not left my bag. We tend to have rainy winters, but since it's still 96* here, a follow-up review is a ways off.
  10. Attached is the link to the sizing chart. Galway Bay suggested going up one size if you were unsure of fit on the jacket, doing so will allow you to swing freely without the fabric pinching anywhere.
  11. Grip fully seated Alignment marks parallel Grip logo aligned to the leading edge of the club Interestingly, I'm seeing more & more people turning the logo over so it is not visible. I believe I saw Rahm with his Golf Pride label turned upside down at The Open.
  12. I know SuperStroke has probably been the best at marketing counter balance weighing for putters, but Tour Lock has a much wider assortment to help balance any club. Link below. https://www.tourlockgolf.com
  13. For the 14.95% of Spys that are giving away their balls I am happy to send you my address!
  14. Somehow I've gotten on a number of panels to participate in golf surveys by manufacturers and third party market research firms. I've found the process quite interesting because there seems to be a common set of themes that are appearing as I do the 3rd or 4th survey from the hosting company. First, they all offer a chance to win a golf themed prize for completing the survey, of which I've never won one, if you have let me know. Next the surveys seem to fall into 3 distinct buckets. 1. Blatant Advertising- This is the survey that exposes you to 1-2 of the companies products via ads and then asks your opinion of what the ad communicates to you, is the message believable and are you now interested in the product. This is really just a tactic to get you to look at an ad for a product that makes all the same promises as every other product on the market. However, under the guise of a survey gets you stop and look at an ad you would normally flip past in a magazine or scroll past online. I'm gonna leave out products here, but the company rhymes with Mixon. 2. Collecting Demographic Data- This survey simply asks you about your personal information age, race, income, HCP, dollars spent on golf, etc. These are not surveysIMHO, but rather just data collection. The last 2 surveys form SuperSroke have been this type with a 20% coupon the carrot if you complete the survey. I won't. 3. Actual Market Research- This is the survey that truly wants to know what you think and you can actually see your feedback being used in the next iteration of the survey. The Datatech(sp) surveys that ask about # of rounds played. where, how long does it take, etc are well done. I did one from Cleveland Golf the other day that I thought was probably one of the first true surveys that really wanted my opinion and had plans to use the data in a constructive fashion. Rather than telling me that their club was the longest, straightest, etc it actually asked the question "What do we need to do to our clubs to get them into your bag?" That was the most refreshing question I have ever been asked in golf or any other survey. They didn't try to tell me why I should buy their product, they actually asked what I want from them. More companies should take this route in their market research as it builds credibility. So do you participate in golf surveys? If so, which type do you prefer or are you seeing different types of surveys than I am? DISCUSS!
