  1. I went to one length a few seasons ago, will never go back. Finally gave away the old set of Pings I was holding on to “just in case”... I started out with the Cobra F9s, and last season found a used set of Cobra Forged TEC Black that I really really love. I did something a little different - I had them all made to MY 8 iron length. That is/was my favorite club at the time and my 150 yarder. When I was previously fit for clubs I was always told I’m half an inch short of standard (a couple previous sets of pings) so I stuck with that. Wedges thru hybrid. I have to admit,
  2. Christopher Sioux City, Iowa I walked 80 of my 100 rounds in 2020, about the same in 2019 as well. I use the Bag Boy Quad (the four wheels are supposed to be better on hilly courses, and I play a couple very hilly courses). Here is the kicker that will either disqualify me, or allow me to give you some interesting insights... I have the Alphard eWheels V1 attached to the cart for the last two seasons. I’m interested in comparing - how easy/hard does it tip or get stuck on hills, does it stay straight on side hills, does it maintain speed over 18 holes
  3. For shirts it is Peter Millar - the Crown Crafted line which is more of a slim/tailored fit - (I'd prefer something without wings under my arms) - but love their Summer Comfort as well - nothing even comes close. For shorts it is Adidas Ultimate 365 - great for hot humid weather.
  4. The 14 way divider - a must for those who have OCD so bad we call it CDO because that is the correct alphabetical order. I had an old Titleist bag w a 14 way divider, and really miss that. When i wore out the straps I went for the lightest bag I could find - that divider is worth 1.5 to 2 lbs - at least those bags always are two to three pounds heavier. Now that I’ve quit carrying and moved to a push cart it may be time to look at a 14 way divider again. If I could find just the divider I’d add it to my existing bag, but that’s not really an option.
  5. Have you checked out the Acu-Strike? Similar concept- see where the sole impacted with the ground. Though I have to say, your sequins are much more obvious and clear. This is more like old time velour that stands up or lays flat. You brush it back flat with the sole of your club after a shot. They make two version, one with an inch of foam underneath (so you need a stance pad) and one super thin that you peg to the ground with some long tees. The paint marks to indicate ball position definitely wear over time. They do make it clear however that you can, should and I do, hit a ball off of
  6. You mentioned above they take an orthotic insert easily.... can I ask if you are an over pronator? My podiatrist put me in ASICS years ago because I over pronate and wear some custom orthotics - but I have never tried their golf shoes before, and have always been on the look out for a shoe for over pronation. Just curious. I’d really like to try the ASICS Gel Ace released this year, but haven’t found a single review...
  7. That’s how I wear my Link (clipped to the pocket) and it stays intact. Keeps it just below the level of my rain jacket or pull over so the microphone is never obstructed. Worked great last season, and the clip is tight enough it’s never come loose.
  8. Back in 08 I was checking boxes off a list, so played it as part of my "Florida Swing". Traveling alone I met my playing companions, a family of three who had travelled from overseas to play. Five minutes later the caddie master came out to inform me that I'd be playing as a single, but they'd be sending me out ahead with a a caddie gratis. After I got over being offended, I decided to make the most of it and it turned out to be a great round, just me and the caddie. To keep me from moving too fast and running into the foursome ahead, he walked me all over each hole giving me a history les
  9. You must be the master of the side hill lie... I like that you can adjust the chipping net to different heights, and let it catch balls on their decent
  10. The nice thing is you can pretty much set it how you want. You can set it lower, and it lays flatter, just by attaching the straps at lower points. I like to have mine pretty high and take pitch shots from ten to fifteen paces away. what they don’t show you in the video is the shots that don’t land in the exact middle fall through and roll back to the front of the net. I purchased it this fall and really liked it. Unfortunately with snow on the ground it’s folded up in the garage waiting for spring.
  11. I tore my meniscus a few years ago - happened on the 7th tee box - I’ll never forget..... anyway, after trying several compression sleeves I have settled on this one for golf https://www.amazon.com/Snapmade-Knee-Brace-Compression-Sleeve/dp/B07JMBY7X9/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=Snapmade&qid=1607789585&sr=8-1 It has some compression, but I got it for the protection against over rotating across my knee and all the torque I put on it. Those little plastic pieces on the side help keep my knee straight. For me, I wear this on my left, forward, knee. So while it’s exactly w
  12. It must be nice to have skills with tools! Looks smart. I was scrolling from the bottom up and at first I thought you inserted it into a practice putting matt - i wonder if something like a BirdieBall has enough depth and structure/rigidity to hold something like that.
  13. I always get 18, with two of the five status lights still on. I’ve never pushed for more than 18. But I just finished my second season and still going strong.
  14. Im looking at the pictures and have a real persnickety question... No drink holder? No place to keep a couple extra balls or tees? I know, I know, your bag is right there. But every push cart has those things. Am I missing them, cause I don’t see in the pictures. I took a Bagboy push cart and added the Alphard ewheels. So I’d really miss those items. Two things you can count on with using a remote - first, the battery in the remote will dies with zero warning just before you have to go up a hill (keep extras AAA batteries in the bag); and second, you will send it someplace you di
  15. I’d been struggling with that question... waivering between a Fiberbuilt and a TrueStrike. I do not have the overhead clearance in either my house or my garage to take full swing - so this is for my backyard and if I’m going to do this I also want to build a butting green around or adjacent to it. I finally settled on the True Strike system. Got a modular piece to set in the middle of a ProPutt modular putting green. There was a long wait and it just arrived this week. Coincidentally my Mevo+ also just arrived. The Sporina net has been patiently waiting for its partners... Hav
  16. Would love to play along. My daughters are tired of their old dad tagging them... @christopher.rants
  17. If you aren’t looking for a permanent solution (like the ProPutt with the flooring base etc to build a floor across your room) then you really should check out the BirdieBall. This was my official review here - and there are four other reviewers with lots of Picts and details to consider You don’t have to be concerned about the foam. At all. It’s very sturdy and bounces back. They have figured it out. And you do want a little extra width - 4 ft is nice. Happy hunting.
  18. Back at the hotel I checked to see how much “walking” or “sliding” the putting green did on the carpet. I first marked the back edge with a Velcro command strip stuck to the floor. After a bit I could see it was moving By the next day I could see it really moved... Everyone may not have this problem. I tend to rock back and forth a bit settling (shuffling) my feet (don’t know why, it’s just habit). That movement or pressure may be what causes the mat to inch backwards. Maybe it’s the type of carpet. Maybe my hotel floor is uneven and I’m putting uphill -
  19. Hmmm.... I had plenty of putts rejected because the hole was already full.... but never because of a flag stick. Which hole? The challenge hole? Completely understand the “walking” of the green. I’ve notice that in my hotel room. I don’t really notice it as it happens, as its subtle, but if you step away and come back, oh yeah, it moved. I think in part that is because despite its very large size it is very light weight and the “smooth” side is what is against/gliding on the carpet. Walking on it creates force in a direction, and it doesn’t have the weight to resist so it gives
  20. Nice fence! You are inspiring me to restrain mine before my net goes back up in the spring
  21. There are a two large shops - by the North gate (near club house and Hole #1) is the SuperStore sized shop; and the South Gate (near Hole 5 and closest to 16, 15, 13). For hats I’d say the selections between the two are the same. A dizzying amount of choices when it comes to colors and styles. Yes, there are fitted caps, but they’ll go earlier in the week. Don’t plan on finding them on Sunday... They are all hanging overhead on a wall with numbers and you ask on of the friendly locals for that corresponding number. They group the fitted hats together. If it doesn’t say fitted, don’t bothe
  22. Ahhhh, but the crucial question is which version plays better - the lemon or the lime???
