  1. Please excuse my reading comprehension skills but are these re-used grips? Is there residual goo on the inside of these grips from when they were first removed? Could this be why you aren't getting good contact? Got one of these things?
  2. I tried it for a season before the anchoring ban, although I really never anchored it. The momentum of the putter head going back and coming through felt really good on short and mid-range putts, however, judging the distance on long (+20 ft.) putts was more difficult. Putting off the fringe was harder as well. Easier to see the line? Not really. And I concur it was much better on the back. Sometimes they went in, most times not. One thing that I remember, that there was actually less control, or less room for error, with the putter face on the long putter, even though it felt more stable. When I went back to a shorter putter, I was amazed how much more control and feel for the putter face I had. I use a saw grip with a 35" mallet now. Sometimes they go in, most times not.
  3. That's so true. In the first few seconds after processing result, I feel like after all of this time of playing decent golf, I reverted back to infancy. Whaaat just happened? Remember infancy? we were all a mess back then. One thing I'd like to add, one skill that goes unappreciated in golf is being able to find our golf ball after a horrible shot. Huge stroke saver.
  4. At first, self-loathing, then quickly concern for my fellow man takes over and I try to access if anyone within the county is in danger. If so, I scream "fore", if not I will mutter a couple words that the moderator would blip out. Then I watch the ball until it comes to a stop or it disappears into the abyss where I try to fix on exactly where it disappeared. I'm usually off by ten yards. At this moment, self-loathing returns. Snap hooks are equally as bad. Just don't last as long. Physically, my forehead gets hot. Seriously, I've noticed that when I play badly, my forehead is hot (not a fever). But no, applying something cool to this spot doesn't turn things around, need to cool down from the inside out, if you know what I mean.
  5. I agree, they came out looking good, but..... One day, you might sell those clubs and somebody is going to pull the grips and see that shaft extension and ask, "who did this???" Then again, some might say, "so what". Your SWMBO does have some nice gear.
  6. Wow, what we find when we do a little digging?? I'm guessing here but maybe the misaligned shaft graphics could be that the previous builder did some spining/FLOing/pureing thing? So the resultant "top" of shaft doesn't align with the graphics, thus isn't the same from club to club. Looks like the one shaft extension didn't get installed deep enough, and they trimmed it anyway, ugh. If it were me, I'd take out that one ugly shaft extension, and replace it with something a little cleaner. Our SWMBOs deserves the best, don't they?
  7. Yes, chipping and putting. There is a practice green I go to a lot and I spread 6 balls around it and have to get up and down with all 6 or I have to start over. Spend a lot of time doing this. Adds a little tension too, which is good.
  8. Had a physical Monday and good 'ol Doctor told me to stop eating snacks at night and have smaller dinners. BMI, he said. Gee I don't know, the Pączkis are out already....
  9. Yes, I had the same problem but I got through using Chrome and Incognito. It's a quiet night out here.
  10. Never had a shoulder but went through 2 hip swaps, the pain means you are working through it, keep pushing, soon you will feel seconds of strength without pain, then minutes, then hours, after that you are as good as new.
  11. Don't know if this will help.
  12. Best wishes with your surgery and rehab.
  13. Golf Pride Tour Velvet +4. Because of the built up lower hand. Also I can rotate them 180' so I don't have to see the writing on the grip either. Used the GP MCC +4 for a few seasons as well, but the two different materials (cord for upper hand, rubber on the lower hand) one grip felt strange for me. In days of old I used to bulid up the lower hand with more tape, and use a grip with a conventional taper, but I would get impatient and sloppy with the build up and the grips wouldn't feel the same from club to club. Never came up with a good, consistent procedure. Having a grip already built-up is much easier and faster.
  14. Just wait until they get to 11.... (sorry couldn't help myself)
