  1. Exactly...I sat him in my other league and boy do I feel silly right now. Just watch, though, everyone will play him next week and he will share carries getting like 7pts while Snell gets all the goal line stands.
  2. Oh man, nervous heading into MNF double header...hoping I can pull off the double victory this week riding Devante Adams!
  3. Hey, thanks guys! Hoping to get out and play a round this week
  4. Feel like my odds are pretty good next week
  5. My iron set came with Lamkin Crossline's and I've enjoyed them so far. Tried GP MCC, GP Aligns, and GP Tour Velvet as well, but based on price and comfort the Lamkins are winning for me. Now Putter grips are c ompleteyl different beast, however I have loved my GP Pro Only in a couple sizes and have really enjoyed them. Like others have said, those, it's all personal preference.
  6. Dang, got excited by my #2 pick...and then just sad and confused as I dropped to 12th, and then finally 11th... Oh well #gladimnotlast
  7. Might not be a yarn in a sense of the others above, however it's too funny of a story to not tell. My fraternity has a yearly golf game and many hijinx are on display, along with some decent golf, but mostly a bunch of hackers out for a good time. One year I was paired with one of the top 5 golfers in the fraternity, so I thought I had it made! All was going according to plan until the 12th hole. We were in the hunt for victory and my partner had an easy 5ft putt for a birdie, but he pushed it right. In his frustration, he walked to the edge of the green and slammed down his putter like an axe so hard the putter head broke off, went flying through the air, and landed right next to the ball. It must have grazed it, because the next thing we know the ball rolls into the hole! We stood in stunned silence before we both fell on the ground laughing so hard at the absurdity of it all. We then both agreed that since the "player" never touched the ball, he could still mark down the birdie
  8. 6'4" and use a 37" putter. Picked up a demo model Anser 2 years ago and now I can't go lower as it feels like I'm hunched over. Recently picked up a TA #3 Impact from Golf Galaxy and immediately took it over to their in-store shop to get an extension and new grip as my lower back felt the strain just in testing it on their in-store green - or maybe i have poor core strength, haha.
  9. After a day on the beach, I ran out of beer and couldn't drive to the store, so it was the next best thing on hand... Not bad if you add vodka to them, haha.
  10. I am preparing my expert strategy of basic roster and then 10kickers! You will all be forced to trade your top players for a kicker by mid-season when Covid strikes the rest down, muahahaha!
  11. I've used my Ping Glide 2.0 Stealth wedges for a season, but can't quite hit them right every time even after hours of chipping practice. Recently saw the new Mizuno ES21 wedges and i'm drooling already...now to just convince my treasurer they are a solid investment. Perhaps I'll hold off and try them out first to make sure they fit my swing/game so I don't get another Ping situation.
  12. Bit of a tangent since it's smokeless, but you guys ever hear of/try these nicotine pouches? Buddy introduced them to me few weeks back and hadn't heard of them, but he swears by them. He had some On!, but looks like there is also ZYN, Dryft, and a few others out there. Curious if anyone has tried and feedback.
  13. Hey @sarahmartin, just completed. You'll have to report back your findings for us!
  14. Obviously! Only way to settle the debate with Cast vs. Forged
  15. Got the email the league was renewed and my immediate response was "here we go again" But, i'll be the whipping boy again in hopes of that golden ticket
  16. Congrats to the testers! If these are as good as the regular D7's then you guys are in for a treat. I've greatly enjoyed my regular D7's since testing them last year!
  17. Any of you guys try the nicotine pouches? Buddy introduced me to those last time we played and I wasn't familiar with them. Said it was less harmful than vaping and WAY less harmful than cigs - his former vice. Wasn't sure about any real world results with them, but seemed like an interesting idea for those trying to cut back or quit all together.

    Union Green?

    Hard to justify the purchase when I can buy Srixon Q-star or Z-Star (on sale) for same prices with reliable and proven performance from a solid company. Side note: how the heck do you say Acushnet? Is it like A-cush-net, or Acue-sh-net, or something different? It's been bothering me...
  19. Wanted to share a recent article about this very topic. Having played another round with the Align XL, I think I fall into the non-linear putting category... however, that's no knock on the line, it's durability, or implementation! https://www.golf.com/instruction/putting/2020/01/31/line-on-golf-ball-i-tried-it/ Torture test forthcoming as well, in the vein of Mythbusters
  20. 62 - high scoring and the NFL will love it...more time for commercials
  21. To clarify, since it feels like my words are being taken as a cantankerous old man who also wants to "make things great again" and "back in my day I had to walk uphill both ways", I wanted to also note that the newer tech in clubs is a welcome addition. It has allowed more players to enjoy the game with less frustration, less lost balls, and hopefully lower scores. The added forgiveness in my D7's has certainly saved my butt a few times, and I've really enjoyed the clubs overall - especially when moving from my old DCI'S It's a small annoyance to have to retool your bag, but I, along with the rest of you guys, have adjusted and ultimately enjoy the game more!
  22. I talked about this very issue when I reviewed the Wilson D7's. Compared to my old DCI's I was playing at the time the loft was increased, on average, about 5* per iron...just crazy. Had to completely retool my bag, drop all FW's since the 4i was @ 19* and then add in 2 more wedges. Needless to say, I'm not a fan of the loft jacking...
  23. Could be worse, you could have started like Tiger did today... Whereas my expert analysis snagged me the leader
