  1. Well I'll be...found this interesting article on ESPN today talking about "Golf's not-so-secret fascination with CBD oil" https://www.espn.com/golf/story/_/id/27147006/golf-not-secret-fascination-cbd-oil
  2. 100% this! I'm a big man - 6'4" 240lbs, so clearly a runners bod - anyway, I hated running and stuck to other gym exercises, mainly a lot of strength training. Then one day I went out and ran 2mi in 14:57 and thought "dang, this is pretty fun when you can put up respectable times!" I'm down to 2mi in 14:47 now and pretty proud of my new running achievements. My ultimate goal is 10k in sub-50min next April. Podcast help a lot, too. Keeps my mind off the actual running part. haha
  3. JS / Virginia 15hdcp Current Wedges are a mix of ZTour PW *50, ZTour SW *54, and Ping Zing 2 LW *58 Love to take my LW and flop it from about 15-20yrds out and have it stop on a dime
  4. I'm in the same boat as OP and don't think my game requires the top-of-the-line ball yet...nor does my wallet with the amount I shank into the woods. Might try out the Q-Star Tour with the deal you mentioned. Thanks for letting us know it's still valid!
  5. Nice work! Looks well done with crisp colors and easily readable letters. I give it a
  6. 100% with you guys on this. The stigma's are old and bunked . If you try an oil and it doesn't work or makes you feel "weird," then move on. Doesn't mean anyone should be a teetotaler about the issue and put their head in the sand - lest we also say no beers on the course as well
  7. I think that's the best we could go for - anecdotal evidence. Completely understand where you're coming from @GolfSpy Stroker. Not saying it's a bad idea, just one that needs a lot of "*" in the findings,"this worked for us, and it might* work for you guys too" Best of luck!
  8. Second @PMookie on the CBD testing. Plus, the OTC stuff is so wildly unregulated you could get different bases (hemp vs actual MJ), strains inside those bases, and different potencies. Plus, considering that people's genetics are all unique, one person could be knocked on their rear by one drop and the other feels absolutely nothing. It's certainly an interesting topic, but best left to the pros to test. If you guys want to review some products, that's a different story, but again effects can vary wildly...
  9. Nope, the main one has already been asked: how they stack up to Mizuno. Looking forward to the updates!
  10. This looks great and looking forward to the full review, @Shankster!
  11. My Ping Eye2 #3 & #5 Persimmon FW from about 1983. Hand me downs from my father that at one time I could crush over 270yds in my heyday. The #3 was my tee-off club for a long time and still use about 5-6times a round when I need better accuracy off the tee.
  12. I like the form factor of a poker chips in my pocket when walking around the course because they are slim and lightweight. However, they have no place in the green which is why I like the chips with a removable ball marker in the center. Something like these: https://www.chipsandgames.com/customballmarkerswithmagneticpokerchips.aspx
  13. JS Virginia 15 Recently was given a set of Taylor Made R11's which was a step up from my no-name clubs from 1998. At the range, I was hitting the 7i about 170yds. Haven't played a round with them yet, though...
  14. 1. JS / Richmond, VA 2. Eloise, 6 3. Does the Little Tikes set count? 4. Profile JGI Red/Small Carry Set 5. Fun fact about your Junior - late to the golf game, but can now beat her old man at Putt Putt - her lowest score is an 11 on our local 10 hole course!
  15. Been playing since I was 6 with my dad, but not seriously until I was 14 - so about 22yrs now. Currently a 16 handicap, so upper 80's, low 90's for normal scores It's never the same twice - plus being outside is a plus MGS is the best site out there Richmond, VA - Richmond Country Club Best - We have Kinloch, Worst - we have a lot of clay, so hard turf is common Marketing for hotels I'm a UNC grad and drive a Volvo, seems pretty self-explanatory Anyone in the central VA area that want's to pl
  16. Just downloaded the Grint on Android and truly love the app! Tried a few others before this, but the courses were spotty and since I play crappy courses in my area the Grint was able to deliver! So far, i've noticed that my GPS is about +/- 5yds from a buddies scope, but still close enough for my high handicap. 3 rounds in and looking good so far.
  17. JS/Richmond, VA Sprinkler heads and yardage markers, plus good old pacing to my ball get's me relatively close
  18. Hey @JohnSmalls, great question. Wasn't sure if this was the right place to dive into the comparison of D7 vs. others out there. I should note that the Wilson D7 really falls into the "Super Game Improvement" category and the others I tried are in the "Game Improvement" category - which fits my needs a little better given swing speed (relatively fast) and motion (about 75% consistent). However, I do still suffer from mishits as noted above, which is where the Wilson D7 really shined. So let's get to it! Clubs I also tried on the demo day in addition to the Wilson D7 include: Mizun
  19. Thanks Wedgie! As a new guy around here I appreciate the feedback
  20. I also recently picked up a pair and have been raving to all my buddies about them. Incredibly comfortable, stable, great traction, fully waterproof, and easy to clean. In hindsight, I would have gotten the darker colors to not have to worry about mud as much, but the store only had white.
  21. 1. JS Smith, -16 2. 6/6, Mulligans Golf Shop, Richmond, VA 3. The experience and review! Distance has not been an issue of late (7i ~165+yrds w/ current clubs), however mishits and shot dispersion are. After checking out the online reviews from other MGS posters, and the proximity of the event, I wanted to give these clubs a try. As others have noted, the sign-up was very simple - however, one glitch I had was never receiving a confirmation email. Thankfully the rep emailed me the day before to confirm everything. The day of the event, I headed out to Mulligans/Bogey's Spor
  22. JS/VA 16 Does a cup on a hardwood floor count? Otherwise, no, but definitely need help cutting down the dreaded 3-putts I have...
