    ED13 got a reaction from Rob Person in What are your hobbies outside of golf?   
    Retired 2 years ago when I turned 50 which allowed me more time for the things I like most.
    Muskie fishing whenever I can with some bass fishing once in a while.
    Shooting pool and snooker every morning for about an hour.
    Stereo I have been working on for the last 20 years and always looking for improved sonics.  
    Throwing darts.  I have been working on my stance and throw for the last 14 years due to an injury.  Finally getting closer than before injury.
    In the process of getting equipment for woodworking.  Started working at my father's factory when I was 7 and always enjoyed using machines and hand tools.

    If the putter was good enough a thousand dollars would be worth it.  Unlike a driver the putter can be used for many years and not have to worry about all the new technologies with the rest of our clubs.

    ED13 got a reaction from tdroma98 in Sunglasses! What do you wear on and off the course?   
    Tried a pair of Oakley Prizm golf glasses but did not like them as it was not always easy to see the ball properly in the air.  I got a pair of Vaurnet sun glasses with yellow lenses similar to yellow shooting lenses.  Easy to see the ball in the air as well as easy to read putts on the greens.  Almost feels like cheating.

    4 way bags only for me.  I use oversize grips, when I had an Ogio 5 way bag it could be a fight trying to get clubs out.  Currently use a Sun Mountain C-130 stand bag as well as an old Sun Mountain 4Five 14 way bag.  Big fan of Sun Mountain bags.

    I currently have Taylormade milled grind 3 black wedges in 50, 54, 58 as well as a SM9 60 degree bent to a 62 for flop shots that I had fitted.
    Also have a back up set still in plastic when needed.

    ED13 got a reaction from Grand Stranded in What equipment are you thinking about?   
    I'll let the fitter at TXG do his thing to guide me to the correct putter.  It has worked so far with the rest of my bag.
    I am confident I will find a putter with the right putter stroke characteristics.  The harder part might be the feel for distance control.  I have been trying some old putters I have and it seems the head weight, grip size and grip weight make a difference for distance control.

    ED13 got a reaction from Josh Parker in 14 way, 4 way, 3 way bags Thoughts   
    I prefer a 14 way as long as it has full length dividers.  With oversized grips It was a pain to get clubs in or out with anything but the 14.  An added bonus is not having to worry about forgetting a club.  A quick glance to ensure they are all there.

    My home course supplies plastic tees so I use them for the driver.  Use short wooden tees for irons.

    ED13 got a reaction from GaDawg in What Have You Bought Lately? (CHA - Club Ho's Anonymous)   
    Earlier today I was contemplating whether to pick up another set of Taylormade MG3 wedges in 50-09, 54-11, 58-08.  They have been the best wedges I ever used.  Slight edge relief has made a huge difference.
     
    I went to Golftown this afternoon and picked up the 50 and 54 wedge.  Will place an order online for the 58 tomorrow morning.  I have the gift cards with nothing else I need so I figured why not.

    The Blues have served as the basis for many of the artists I have followed for years,  Clapton, BB, Buddy Guy, Robert Cray, Jeff Beck, Roy Buchanan, Garry Moore, Albert King, SRV, Jimmy Vaughn, Billy Gibbons, Santana, Peter Green, Mick Taylor, Sonny Landreth, Derek Trucks, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker, Howlin Wolf, Hubert Sumlin, Charley Patton, Robert Johnson, Clarence Brown, Freddie King, Son House, Lightnin Hopkins.  I’m sure I missed a few in there.  I’ve got at least one CD with something by each of these guys and many more bands in my collection.  Not a day goes by without me listening to some Blues.

    Tonight I have been doing an album shootout with nine copies of Tears for Fears, Songs From the Big Chair.  Have a mixture of Canadian copies, US, UK and Europe pressings.
    Finished side 1 with a 1st Canadian pressing that easily beat all others.  Currently working on side 2.  Hoping the best side 2 is the same record as the side 1 so I can sell an additional album.  Most often I will have a record for side 1 only and side 2 only as well.  Not ideal but I am only interested in the best sound possible.
    Tomorrow I will do the same with 7 copies of Ziggy Stardust.  I have a 1st pressing orange label original, early Japanese and 5 UK copies.  Will be hoping for the best.

    Going back to the roots of what we all listen to. It's ingrained in every aspect of music today. If not for this, there would be no Led Zeppelin, Eric Clapton or Beatles.
     
     
     
     
    This is my favorite Led Zeppelin song (cover) ever. This is the original.

    Last fall I got fitted for wedges at TXG.  By far the best wedges for me were the Taylormade MG3's in 50-54-58.  Also got a Vokey 60 degree bent to 62.
    Do not currently have any use for a new club, apparel, shoes or even golf gloves.  I have some gift cards which will be more than enough to purchase the same 3 MG3's from Golftown.  Who knows what will be available in the future and these work so well for me.

    So far today I listened to Zep IIII, 2 copies I forgot about.  One was Ok and the other very good.
    Classical music today - German Overtures on an old Telefunken label.  A very large bombastic orchestra.  Also listened to Stravinsky - The Rite of Spring.  Both albums have a very quiet background and great resolution which helps with finer details in the music.  Love the tempo changes when listening to a large orchestra.
    Compared a couple copies of Cat Stevens Teaser and the Firecat to see which had the best sound.  Also listened to Quadrophenia (The Who) and  Benefit (Jethro Tull).
    I will now be doing a shootout trying to find the best side 1 and the best side 2 of three identical pressings of Willie Nelson's Stardust.  Hope I find a great sounding side 1 and 2.
