  2. Too many built and golf does not carry enough weight with the young folk to keep all these courses alive. The result? The surrounding housing is suffering. https://www.wsj.com/articles/golf-home-owners-find-themselves-in-a-hole-11547135191 Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy

    Soaring Club Prices too Much For Van Sickle

    And just played out on YouTube. This guy has 3 videos over the past few days about his “beater” clubs. Interesting, plus he has a sense of humor. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy

    Rather an Unusual Ping G400 LST

    Thought for a minute you bought one of these: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/golf-clubs-G400-golf-drivers-lady-pink-right-hand-golf-club-women-or-men-9-or/32893325947.html?spm=2114.search0104.3.16.386f1d78QKmxm9&ws_ab_test=searchweb0_0,searchweb201602_3_10065_10130_10068_10890_10547_319_10546_317_10548_10545_10696_453_10084_454_10083_10618_10307_537_536_10059_10884_10887_100031_321_322_10103,searchweb201603_6,ppcSwitch_0&algo_expid=8d9b02cf-7ad4-44ed-b6ec-777ba054fe92-2&algo_pvid=8d9b02cf-7ad4-44ed-b6ec-777ba054fe92 Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy

    What ya drinking tonight?

    Was it a golf Christmas?

    The only golf related item I received was a chipping net. I wanted that and a batch of Almost Balls so I could practice in the basement. Guess I’ll have to get my own. Did get an airsoft pistol, a Walter P99 replica. With the exception of orange tip on the end of the barrel, it’s very realistic. Even down to the weight and rails. The squirrels and I are going to war. I’m not allowed to kill them but I can smack them hard [emoji16] It’s my favorite present (heehee) Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy

    Stay with iPhone X, or move to Samsung???

    Maybe I’m being petty but years ago I was burned by Samsung. I’ll never touch another product that has their name on it. Now that I’ve vented my useless story... Look for the features that are important to you. One thing I care about is the camera. I’ll always have a phone that does well in this arena. Some folks need storage space, SD cards are important to them. Know what matters to you, make sure that box is ticked. Android vs. iOS? Unless you are a real geek it really doesn’t matter that much. Although I’ve been a techie since ‘82 that doesn’t make me a geek. I don’t care enough about it. Sounds like to me Hardcore Looper is a geek, I can hear it in his vocabulary. Even though I’m not a geek, we’d get along well. We speak the same language. Is one right and the other wrong? Of course not! Just a little different. Someone mentioned that being on the bleeding edge can be painful, they are very right. Keep that in mind. I’m about to pick up my first iPhone. Not the new ones but an 8. I’ll stay a step away from the unproven [emoji6] Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy

    2019 Golf objectives

    I had a bright shiny new knee installed on November 12th. Before that I’d be gimping around pretty good by the end of 18, and that’s when riding. Looking forward to building up overall strength and endurance which will hopefully translate into a more consistent swing. Strength and endurance should translate into more rounds as well. For me that’s a good thing. I need to play more. Overall goal? Stabilize in the mid 80’s and start to scare the lower 80’s by the end of the summer. I’m looking forward to 2019!

  13. Amazon one day sale on Callaway clubs. Picked up a 2017 GBB and a GBB 5wood for $322 including tax. It’s not exactly what I was looking for but compared to the Taylormade R5 I’m swinging now. Good enough for now. By the time I outgrow the GBB, drivers will be 20 yards longer! Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
  14. But what if they are close enough in looks you lose track of which one is which? [emoji15] Just thinking out loud, I would never buy one of these. I wonder what a test would show? If it’s really bad we’ll all be able to point this out when friends find these “to good to be true” deals. If they turn out to be 80% as good as the originals, would we still approach them with an air of disdain? Don’t shoot the messenger, just a mind game [emoji16] Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
  15. Knee replacement on Monday so I’m sitting here without a lot to do. Ran across an ad for a G400 Max for only $150! Well wahoo! I will need a new driver and at that price, who can lose! Notice the site is Alibaba. 100% Chinese. Has to be a clone. But I’ll admit, it looks close. I can’t spot and glaring flaws. Anyone want to jump in and test it out?
