    Economics, history, the Precious Metals market, competitive curling, travel (and not just world class golf trips), what makes a person tick, hiking, classic Chevy muscle, the cyclical nature of everyone and everything on our planet, scotch, politics (policy, not the bs about the people in the roles), architecture and design, friends and family, physics, math, science and statistics, and, pretty much anything else that can preoccupy my mind when I'm not thinking about golf.

  1. I've always been a late adopter of tech, but now in my 40's, it's nice to see the ball compress and fly like I'm in my 20's Santa
  2. That looks great - thanks for the review of Trump. Also strongly considering heading a little further north and playing Cruden Bay. And I just picked up a pouch from Olympic Club - I think I'm set now until my return to Scotland.
  3. Aye laddie. I might be through Aberdeen in 2020 and have considered that course - would you recommend it?
  4. I like a need and orderly golf bag, so tees, coins, repair tools, sharpies, pencils, etc., etc. that would otherwise be rattling around in the pockets. And I live in the Pacific Northwest, so one for storage of my keys/phone/watch/wallet as an added layer from the rain is a must. If I need something, I know where to find it. Fewer distractions allows us all to play better golf.
  5. The rhythm of the game is best found when you are walking. Carts are great from time to time, but not if you want to really improve. Santa
  6. The Driver is 7 years' old. What is that in terms of generations behind in tech?
  7. Welcome aboard! There is a group of us in Vancouver who can always make room for another golfer, if you ever find yourself crossing the border. Santa

  9. Kwoodfield, When do you leave on this epic trip? I've played about half the courses you listed - you will undoubtedly enjoy them all, for different reasons. While in St. Andrews, if you have time to add Crail that is worth a visit. And the patio outside the Jigger, leaning up against the wall along 17 of the Old Course, is a once in a lifetime experience. You almost have to pinch yourself that you are there. Dinner at Forgan's in town is a must. Go with an open mind. The deep fried haggis balls with a dram of scotch are incredibly good. I would be curious to hear what some
  10. Partnering to victory - Those kids had no chance! My frustration is only wth myself. I'll be less indulgent with my words going forward 🤷🏻‍♂️ Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  11. I'm a born and bred Canadian in my 40's, who fell back in love with the game after a 2016 trip to Scotland. This second chapter to my golf career continues to pick up speed, and this site looks like a great forum to stay informed of trends, product and opportunities that admittedly I stopped paying attention to a long time ago. The first chapter is a long story, starting at age 5 when my parents took up the game – I started with them, cut down adult clubs and all. I was more interested raking the sand greens at our first 9-hole course than I was trying to get the ball in the air. Names
