  1. Chris New Bern NC 5 Ping i210's I would like to test the Icon's
  2. I have always heard it was best to get the ball on the ground as soon as possible. Sure putting through the fringe is dicey at times, but I believe the variables are less when putting than chipping. Also, I see a lot of people using the wrong club when chipping. The 56* up to the 60* are sexy to chip with but are not the best options unless you have no other choice. My dad and his friends will wear us out with 6 and 7 irons around the greens. So awesome to watch and the stress level for them is nothing.
  3. New Bern, NC Sun Mountain C130 Front pockets availability or ease of use, putter compartment that wont knock the head cover off and overall weight. I like to ride and walk (Clicgear 3.0 push cart), so I want it to fit well and not be to heavy to push comfortably.
  4. I have always used it through the app. I know that you can setup games on their website and it will transfer to the app. So give it a try. I think you will like it.
  5. Golf Game Book My buddies and I use it all the time, especially on our annual trip. The app does the following.... * Live Scoring * Multiple Games * Side Bets * Stats * and more. All free or if you want a little more there is a premium version. I have used it for the past 3-4 years and never saw a need for the upgrade.
  6. I play and love the Tour Edge CBX Ironwoods. They don't look as bulk and offset like most of the Driving irons out there. I started with the 3 iron for tee shots only, but after hitting a few shots from the fairway I found that it was a better play than my stock 3 iron. I then went out and bought the 4 iron to replace my stock 4 iron. They both have the Project X HZD Smoke shaft in them and I couldn't be happier with their performance. I have had some of my higher handicap friends try them and they were shocked at how easy they were to hit. They definitely improved my game.
  7. Ping i200's or i210's either would be a great pick up. I have played both and I currently game the i210's, which I love. The i210's have a little more compact look to them and feel softer to me. I have had friends hit them and ask if they are forged. I know hard to believe a cast iron can feel like a forged iron, but they do!!. Very forgiving and are true to standard lofts, which is another reason I like them. Give them a try, I think you will be pleasantly surprised.
  8. We go on an annual trip with about 12 guys. We play a round robin 2-man teams. Our trophy is these belt buckles that must be worn the next year by the the winners. If they are seen without them on they have to buy the next round of beers.
  9. Didn't mean to hit a nerve....but to answer your question I put it in the cart, on my golf bag or I carry it in my hand and lay it down to hit my shot.
  10. I will agree with all that has been mentioned and would like to add.....don't hang a towel out of your back pocket. I can't tell if you are playing golf or getting ready to wash the golf cart.

  12. As far as comparisons go I have played a Callaway XR16 Pro for the last 3.5 years and I love it. However, I had a chance to get an Epic Flash Sub-Zero for a great deal here recently. So I went out to compare them, same day, same shaft, same ball and same swing (or as consistent as one can repeat their swing). After all the hype of the Epic Flash I was surprised that the XR16 out shined it in every aspect. It was longer, straighter and sounded better in my opinion. So what does this mean, for me it makes me think that Driver Technology hasn't really improved as much as we would think in the last 4 years. However, I must admit that the biggest take away is that the shaft and head combination is HUGE!!!! I am sure that if I found another shaft that fits me and the EP Flash, that I would see better results from the EP Flash, maybe not better than the XR16 but improved from my current shaft with that head. I know that it will take something very impressive to get the XR16 Pro out of my bag.
  13. I have been experimenting with different brands lately and decided to give Snell MTB-X a try. I have tried all the usual suspects and then the Vice balls, but never Snell. So my first take was the Snell looked out of the box right up there with Titleist, Callaway and Taylor Made. On the course the Snell was noticeably LONGER off the Tee, I gained at least 5 - 8 yds on avg. over the Prov1X that has always been the longer performing ball for me. The Snell also held up for several rounds where the Vice was a 1 round and done at best. I have played 8 rounds with the Snell and have decided its not the ball for me, but I did pass it along to my father who needs distance help rather than spin performance. He loves it, his swing speed is around 85 mph and he has seen a gain in yds off the tee and a little help with irons as well. My thoughts are purely based my play on the course as I do not have access to a simulator, but I would say that the Snell is by far a better golf ball than the Vice.
