  1. As a fellow wide-footer, I'd definitely go with the Adidas. The fact that you can get them in a wide foot as well is a major selling point for me. I have two pairs of the 360's and a pair of PPF's. Now - I have an abnormally wide foot toward the toe end. 27 years of ski boots and hockey skates have deformed my feet a fair bit. I have two pairs of 360s in wide, and a pair of PPF spikeless. The ADI PPF shoes are borderline and took some breaking in, but someone just requiring a wider toe box, without really buggered up feet, I'd say the Adidas in regular width would be swell! Then there is the added bonus of being able to order the Boost 360's in a wide option - which is again the most comfortable shoe on the planet imho. Looks like you made the right choice though, as I'm a little late to the party lol
  2. Upgraded to a PING Vault 2.0 Anser last season. I don't see myself changing any time soon, it doesn't let me down when I put a good stroke on it! I have been looking at getting a Vault 2.0 ZB, just because I like the shape and I want to have one. not necessarily to replace my gamer. They're just so pretty!
  3. I would totally join an MGS running group. It would add some accountability to my good intentions.. lol

    TP5 Pix?

    I bought a box and really liked playing with them. I don't use a line for my putts though. I like the spin feedback on greenside shots, you can see what the ball is doing, and I think it is good for practice. same with putting, you get a nice visual from an end over end roll, and a squirrely roll is easy to see.
  6. Congratulations on surviving the round and achieving your goal! Very much looking forward to the pictures!
  7. sid meier's sim golf was the BEST!!
  8. I used to have bums go through my recycling for empties, so they could go turn them in at the bottle depot. They would also go through the bed of my truck. They stopped after I started vaulting over my balcony and chasing them down the street in my knickers shouting "GET THE **** AWAY FROM MY ****!!" I definitely understand the feeling of privacy violation with the shipping labels on those. especially if he does not remove your name and such before he decides to ship them internationally.
  9. So.. Does the neighbourhood/municipality not have roadside recycling? You just throw your boxes in the garbage? Are there reasonably convenient places to take your cardboard for recycling? Honest questions from a confused Canadian. If there are accessible options for getting rid of your boxes that would solve the problem pretty quick. I second the Billy Madison approach, otherwise.
  10. I suck at Golf! Played a fair bit as a kid, never very seriously. Mostly played with dad when the wind wasn't strong enough for windsurfing. Fast forward to last year, I picked up the game again and was hooked. Took me all last season, with some lessons to get into the 95 range. Club champs last year I shot 101, 104, 111, to give you all an idea of where I was at. Being a proud Canadian, I practiced indoors with my coach all winter in hopes of coming back and beating the old guys in C flight who were shooting their age at 92 . This year I Started with a 106, gradually coming down to a PB of 89. After that I was shooting low 90's, around the time it came to go on a vacation and visit family. Played every day I was home, sometimes twice. the best I shot was a 95, worst was up at 109. It was demoralizing to no end, and I had thought I lost all of the progress I had made. Yesterday at work I spent a good chunk of the day reading through all of your "I suck at golf" experiences. I was scheduled to play a new course(Bridges Golf Course, just outside of Winnipeg, MB - highly recommend if you're in the area), and I had decided that I suck at golf and I would just enjoy being out in the sunshine come hell or high water. I smashed my PB with an 86, including two 9's(one on a par 5, one on a par 4). The moral of the story to me, is that we all love this game for the challenge. The crushing lows makes the highs that much better, and the true happiness comes from the pursuit of the game. Thank you all for sharing your experiences, I'm proud to suck at golf with all of you. May your next round be your best round, and yesterday's make it that much sweeter. Cheers Matt
  11. I've seen Koepka repping 225lb bench like its nothing lol. 225 isn't stupid heavy, but it puts him in an upper percentile. FOHWTS
  12. You mean fire and Bridgestone? haaaaa...
  13. My old man always used to tell me in the hockey dressing room, when I was trying to be class clown - "empty vessels make the most noise." This rings so true for the bababooey guys.
  14. Well your comment on keeping the back of the hand facing down the target line was a good reminder of the Y-L drill my coach had me working on. That's a +1 in my book!
  15. Had my best driving round ever after pouring through this thread yesterday. Apparently some of you guys know what you're talking about I have some sequencing trouble that often causes a banana slice when I'm tired and reverting to old habits. Was swinging nicely on plane yesterday and getting a nice piercing 300 yd baby fade. I can see myself spending more company time on these forums for sure!
