  1. Man, I'm right there with you. I've got a bunch of Z-stars on hand right now. Although I did recently find out I "have to" play a tour level ball due to my swing speed, so looks like the Q-star isn't an option for me anyway. Tony, I'm over here waiting anxiously for your Z-star review!!!
  2. Stopped by my local shop yesterday and tried out a Heppler Anser 2. I currently game an Anser 2 from ~1997/8 and have tried a few different putters over the years but nothing felt and sounded as good as my OG...until yesterday. I am eagerly awaiting the reviews and will certainly be following this thread as I might be switching soon, haha. Loved the feel, weight, and design. Made me more deliberate with my stroke, the contrasting colors stood out nicely and allowed me to line up the putts better, and the sound was perfect to my ears - but I am severely biased at this point, haha.

  3. Hey Guys, It's that time again to replace my glove as I've worn a couple holes in it and I hate to toss all that good leather in the trash each time. Does anyone know of a place that will recycle old golf gloves? What do you guys do with gloves you've worn holes in?
  4. Got fitted into a Ping G410 LST @ 10.5* w/ Evenflow Black 65 6.0 shaft today. Started dropping bombs over 300yds once it was dialed in
  5. Guys, I am so excited! Up till today, I have never purchased nor owned a driver that was setup for me. I mostly played hand-me-downs from my father, church members, friends, etc... and they all had regular or even senior flex shafts. I tend to slice the ball off the tee and the drivers that were given to me didn't help that issue much, so I would end up teeing off with a 3 wood or my 4i in most cases. I've still found enjoyment playing this way and its worked for years, until today... Went to my local shop and discovered they have a trackman now, so setup a driver fitting for today. After
  6. Was a caddie for the recent Dominion Energy Charity Classic and got to see Phil a few times during the ProAm. He was a step above the field off the tee by a good 50yards on most holes. It's almost unfair to the rest of the guys! Got one photo of him on 18 the second day of the ProAm. Was very fun to see him join the "Champions" Tour!
  7. Alright @aerospace_ray, my John Morgan shirts arrived! First off, super fast shipping!! I ordered them late Friday night and they were out the door Monday and to my door today! Second, the box and presentation are TOP NOTCH! I've ordered much nicer, well known brands and they didn't take the time and effort to put their clothes in such a nice, sturdy box with tissue paper and their little sticker logo to seal it all up. Lastly, I tired them on to make sure the fit was right before washing and was equally impressed. Great feeling fabric, longer than regular polos for active wear
  8. When I was selected to test out the new Wilson D7's last year, I was in the 100's range for posts, had only been a member for maybe 8months, and had never tested anything of real substance until then. Since then I only enter my name for something I truly want to test, am passionate about, and know I will be committed to writing a full review of. Sure I'm as bummed as the next guy when I don't get selected, but I'm not in it for free clubs (but seriously, it is a nice perk!). I'm in it to evaluate a tool and convey my unique experience to the community and answer questions. Don't lose
  9. On your rec, I ordered a couple John Morgan shirts that were on sale. Look forward to trying them out!
  10. When do you want to meetup and compare Forged vs. Non-Forged D7s?? Need to look at distance, dispersion, feel, and how well it pairs with beers
  11. Not gonna lie, I wish there was an FAQ about golf games because when I get up to the first tee and the other guys mention a game name I just nod along having ZERO clue what the rules of the game are or how to even play a lot of times, lol. Anybody want to put together an FAQ for us clueless golfers?
  12. 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.
  13. Oh man, nervous heading into MNF double header...hoping I can pull off the double victory this week riding Devante Adams!
  14. Hey, thanks guys! Hoping to get out and play a round this week
  15. Feel like my odds are pretty good next week
  16. 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.
  17. 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
  18. 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
  19. 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.
  20. 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.
  21. 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!
  22. 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.
  23. 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.
  24. Hey @sarahmartin, just completed. You'll have to report back your findings for us!
