  1. Just picked up a WS D300 3W on eBay for $30 bucks! Can't wait to get that sucker and try it out.
  2. Bought a couple dozen Snell balls with the deal going on for MGS members. Also picked up a Wilson Staff Triton driver. Did I need a new driver? No. Will it make it into the bag? Who knows. But I am always on the lookout for interesting/good deals on eBay.

    Is this a rich man’s game?

    You sound a lot like me. Also far from rich, got a long way to go before I hit six figures. I had actually not spent more than $19.99 on a dozen balls until this morning when I did the Snell deal for MGS members. There is a muni course just a 1 1/2 miles from work with sunset rates about $14 with cart. I also got an affordable push cart so I could save the $14 cart fee when I want to play 18. There are several munis around plus a 9-hole pitch-n-putt so there are plenty of affordable options in my area without having to go the country club route. When I started playing last summer I picked up a used mixed bag on eBay for less $100 bucks. I had to replace the driver and 3W pretty quick and add some wedges but I am still using the irons, hybrids and putter. Every club in my bag currently, I got off eBay and did not spend much more than $80 bucks on a single one. I think I only paid about $50 for my driver which has so far served me well. I personally can't imagine paying hundreds for a driver or putter or a grand for set of irons. I can just about guarantee I wouldn't play any better with a $500 driver and $4-$5 balls. Golf is expensive, but it doesn't have to be prohibitively so. A lot of fun can still be had playing within your means.
  4. My bag changed a lot since the beginning of the season, in that I got a new bag. Most of the contents, however, remain the same. I did add a rain suit and a quick reference guide to the rules of golf though.

    Golf gloves

    Thanks for the clarification. I'll have to remember that if I ever get the point of playing in a tournament. I mainly went for the StableFit because I wanted to wear a black glove and that was the only black Bionic I saw on Amazon. I may have to try the Performance Grip sometime though. I'm never opposed to trying new golf gear.
  6. I don't use my 3-wood a lot, but when I do I hit some real worm burners. As a newer golfer I still top a lot of shots and I have a hard time getting the ball in the air with it. I do much better with my 18* 5-wood, which is one of my favorite clubs in the bag. I can hit the 5 off the deck 150-170 yards, which for me is long.

    Are You Boring?

    In that case, I'm really good at practicing. Last night was actually the first time I ever played the same ball for every stroke over nine holes. I should have retired the ball then instead of losing it in the creek on my 10th hole tee-shot.

    According to GregB, some may not be conforming.

    Golf gloves

    I am a big fan of the Bionic StableFit gloves. For me they last a long time and are very comfortable. I'm still using my first one which is now getting a bit stiff and crinkly, but I bought two more as backups so I'll be set for a while. I never thought about them being non-conforming, but it doesn't matter to me at this early point in my game anyway.

    Are You Boring?

    I'm a terrible golfer so my rounds are usually pretty eventful. I look forward to one day playing a boring round.
  11. I just started playing last summer and I think the most I have lost in an 18 hole round is 5 or 6. I mainly at a course about 1 1/2 miles from work. It's not particularly difficult but there are a few challenging holes. If there is water involved, my ball usually finds it, although I have been getting better at making it over the water lately. The most confusing is when they disappear in the fairway, especially if it's a bright red ball. It's like when a sock disappears in the washer.
  12. Outstanding pictures of some beautiful clubs! I also love the clean look of the Tour, though as a beginner the Hot Metals would be closer to my speed. If only I had an extra grand laying around that I had no other use for.

    Thanks everybody!
  14. Excellent review! I have had my Grom stand bag for about a month and so far I am a fan. While the ball pocket doesn't hold as much as the one on my Ogio Decibel I like the extra storage overall and so far the 14-way divider has worked great for me. The shoulder strap doesn't bother me much since I use a push cart when I walk, but using it with an electric cart is a bit annoying trying to get it situated. It's really nice having balls, tees and glove right there handy next to each other, and the balls don't pop out of the silo when driving over rough terrain.

    Thanks guys! Happy to be here. GSwag, I suppose I could do that. But let me ask you, how much do you value your hearing?
