    GHIN just launched theirs! Have not used it yet, but looks like there is a fee for "enhanced" data!

    Yes I just started looking at it the other day. I don't appreciate that they "lock" the front and back of green distances as part of their premium features, but the hole diagrams look pretty good. 

  2. I have both The Grint and Golfshot. However I use the paid version of The Grint mainly because it allows me to capture more stats when I use it to keep score. But they both work well whether with the free or paid version.

    BTW, the USGA app now has one too, if you already have a USGA membership.

    ... While more than a few here seem to have a weakness for new shoes my accumulations are happening at the other end. One of my favorites for sun protection hats (an absolute must in the Phoenix sun) a Head floppy and super cool/comfortable hat,  literally came apart at the seams and I finally found some replacements and bought three. 2 cream and 1 tan to go with the 5 I already have in use 🤪

    I recently switched my opinion from hating the floppy hat look to realizing I need them to protect my skin. So I have several of them myself. What brand are those?

  4. There are so many spikeless options nowadays that it is pretty easy to find a pair that are as comfortable as sneakers. My understanding is golf shoes provide more lateral support than normal walking or running shoes. So there is definitely a difference. I personally prefer sneaker type spikeless shoes. I own one pair of spikes but I rarely wear them.

  5. I don't have the fairway but I do have an E521 hybrid and it is a very good club. However the general consensus on the E521s is that you should only get it if you do not try to shape your shots. With the Houdini sole your ball flight will be straight. It is difficult if not impossible to shape shots with the E series. The C521 is a better bet if you like to shape your shots.

    I think “Innovative” is the correct descriptive word for PXG. I never thought I would be a PXG club owner, but with Bill Parsons “Heroes” discounts, I am now the proud owner of a PXG Driver and soon probably more.

    Same here!

    I like your list and definitely think PING is on top (no bias here, just don't look at what's in my bag, lol). I'm also thinking of brands that have evolved beyond just clubs and have become a force in culture as well - eg: Titleist hats, all of Puma/Cobra's clothes and accessories, etc...

    I have no problem with your preferences, but I wouldn't call any of them "cool", except maybe Cobra. The rest are pretty buttoned up corporate brands to me. The exact opposite of cool.

    This is one of the Tilly hats I wear in almost everyday in FL. I love these hats, throw them in the washer shape them up and they’re good to go. I had to cut off my Granddaughters out of the pic per my daughter.IMG_0644.PNG

    I recently bought one pretty similar to that. Haven't worn it yet.

    I never considered a hat of this style until we moved to FL and SWMBO kinda “suggested” I get one. Sun is on you 11 1/2 months of the year.

    I just recently started embracing the wide brim and bucket hats. Typically I wear ball caps, but as mentioned, they really don't protect your ears and neck.

  10. I'm sorry!  I could never live here!  I'm just a small town boy where the rush hour is 4:30pm-5:30pm, instead of 7am-7pm

    I guess it’s a matter of perspective. I came to SoCal from NYC in the Navy back in 1983. Took one look at Coronado and said “I could get used to this”. And have been here ever since. But I live in OC and only go to LA when I absolutely have to.

  11. I am completely new to the game and I am trying to get a good complete set of clubs to play. What would be a good set that are not extremely expensive, but would still be good quality for playing three or four times a month? I am trying to keep it under $300 for the set.

    Check out Gigagolf.com. You may be able to get a full set within your budget.

  12. So weird. I have some bonus money burning a hole in my pocket. But when I started thinking about what new shiny toys I want I can't think of anything. My bag is practically new top to bottom. And the items that are not new I don't want to replace yet. Besides, I am usually the guy who procrastinates on a purchase and then I pull the trigger about a week before the next model is announced. So I don't want to do that again.

  13. Though I probably wouldn't buy one myself, if given an option to get one for free I'd probably look at the Sim2 based upon all of the hype. Shaft would be either a Project X (not sure which) or UST Mamiya since those are the ones I know and have in my bag already.

    I agree. The Warrior stuff I have tried is on par with Walmart store clubs. Anything from the big 3 and little 3 is way better. 

     

    I played with a guy once who had a whole bag of Warrior clubs, and a Warrior bag! For his sake I hope he worked for them. 😆
