  3. The course I grew up playing was a 9 hole course, with 1,8,9 on one side of a set of railroad tracks, and 2-7 on the other. You had to cross the tracks in the same place whether going from 1 to 2, or from 7 to 8. This means the 1st green and 8th tee are close. It was really common for my parents and me to go in the evening and play 1,8,9. If we had time, we might play them again from a different tee. Membership was a benefit of my parents' work, so we could walk it whenever we wanted. This course has now embraced the 1,8,9 round, and has a special ($5, I think) greens fee for playing just those 3 holes. I've played a lot of "non-traditional" rounds of golf in my life, and it's probably why I'm still more interested in the challenge of each shot than shooting a low score. Play what works for you. Every shot has its challenges, regardless of the number of holes you play. Sent from my XT1585 using MyGolfSpy mobile app

  5. Sorry to hear about your experience. I can't stand it when people get that way, and alcohol is never an acceptable excuse. It's almost the complete opposite of what I expect from people playing a game so reliant on etiquette and honor. Sent from my XT1585 using MyGolfSpy mobile app

  9. Here's one from an island off the coast of Maine. The picture's blurry, and it was getting dark, but she's whiter than she looks. She's pretty amazing. Sent from my XT1585 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  10. I use the "ignore" feature a lot, meaning I screen what I read by avatars. When I see certain avatars, I just completely ignore the post and move on to someone else's. If a certain person or two posted to me directly or quoted me, I'd never even know it. Life's too short to have squirting contests with skunks. Sent from my XT1585 using MyGolfSpy mobile app

  15. Good question. Mostly because that's a distance I struggle with off the tee. I've hit a ton of fairway woods and hybrids, and can't find one I can hit worth anything. Every time I think I've found something I can hit well, I end up back with my Ping Eye2 2-iron. That's not necessarily a problem, but a couple of the courses I play regularly have several holes where a drive in the 200-230 range would be about right. 250-260 is just too much. Some of it's just curiosity, some of it's wanting to move on from the 2-iron. You've got to remember I'm playing to a pretty high handicap, and it's not because of the way I hit driver. The more I can have that in my hand right now, the more confident I am. That's all I was thinking... Sent from my XT1585 using MyGolfSpy mobile app

  22. I'm "that guy." I don't like it, because far more often than not my ball doesn't end up anywhere near where people were when I've waited for them, but I'd rather wait than try to apologize after hitting someone when I knew it was possible I could hit them. Most of the guys I play with know what situations I should wait in, and they often encourage me to wait when I start with "what are the chances..." As for not seeing them, I don't know that I've run into that one... Sent from my XT1585 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  23. Shameless self-promotion: the following is an excerpt from my stage 1 for the Ping G400 review. You can read the rest of it, and the other stage 1's in the Official Ping G400 Forum Member Review thread. Stage 2 coming soon..... "I decided even before being selected to test that I would get fitted unless I was specifically asked not to. It was definitely the right choice. I had listed the SFT in my application after trying several different settings with the online tool. I didn't necessarily trust my own judgment about flight and trajectory, didn't really have 100% confidence in my distance choice and wasn't sure whether it was carry distance or total distance. The most common online result was the SFT with a tour 65 regular shaft. Depending on the setting it would occasionally recommend the Max, but always with the tour 65 or tour 75 shaft. When I got fitted, I warmed up and laid down a baseline with my Cleveland driver. After watching me swing and looking at the numbers my fitter, who is also a teaching pro, said it definitely needed to be a stiff shaft. He only had two lefty heads, the G400 and the SFT. He put together several different combinations and I must have hit 150 shots. I only took two with the SFT head and tour 65 shaft. He watched those two swings and knew that it wasn't the combination for me, even though it was the most common recommendation from the nFlight tool. I even hit the regular G400 better than the SFT. When I told him about the nFlight recommendation, he told me he isn't all that impressed by the online fitting. He said he'd seen a bunch of the online fittings that were pretty far off from the story that the launch monitor tells." That was my experience. Yours might be different.....
