  2. OK, in Pennsylvania, all golf has been shut down. Not sure why but whatever. Fortunately, the weather hasn't reached the golf everyday time yet so it's not that bad sitting inside. I did play once before the lock-down. 9 holes and actually pretty decent weather. To get my fix, I set up my old Nintendo Wii and I have the Tiger Woods 2012 game which includes Augusta. I also have the SkillZ SimSticks which make the Wii remote similar to a real golf club with an actual shaft and grip. Not the real thing but better than nothing at all. I have it running on a 120" projector screen. Ah, the lengths we go to for a golf fix...
  3. Congrats Testers! I'm anxious to see the outcomes. Hopefully they are in areas where they can actually play.
  4. That is too bad. Here in NW PA, there are numerous courses that have been up for sale for years and barely getting by. I'm guessing if this continues for even a small length of time, some of them will be gone for good.

    COVID-19

    The Governor of PA. shut down all golf courses. One of the better local course had come up with a way to play so no-one got near anyone. 1 person to a cart, pin stays in always, raised cup so ball doesn't drop, etc. and they had to stop that as of yesterday. Gonna be a long next few months.
  6. NW PA. Was 67 today and even though it rained a little, I would have been out there but the Governor has shut all courses down. Working from home now for what sounds like a long time but I guess I should feel lucky for working period. Not gonna be a fun couple of months.
  7. Ok, for everyone like me that misses watching golf on TV even though it has only been a couple of Days. There is a Free Streaming service called PLUTO.TV. Not only does it have numerous News and Entertainment channels but it also has a PGA Tour Channel that shows highlights of past Tour Events running 24/7. Definitely something to watch if you are bored and cannot get out and play. The channel is available on your computer ( https://pluto.tv/live-tv/pga-tour ) , an App on Roku and Fire TV, and some of the smart tvs. Just a thought.
  8. I was at Walmart and Sam's Club yesterday...lots of big empty..especially the toilet paper isle and paper towel isle. Personally I use baby wipes instead of TP. A doctor recommended that 2 years ago after a hemorrhoid flare-up. Never went back to dry TP. Anyways, I understand the need for all the precautions the various Sports leagues are taking but I guess I thought with golf, just have no fans but the golfer and caddie still could play (2-3 per hole) and it could be broadcast on TV. Throw in a few rules officials and really that's all you need to play a tournament. However, as my Ex-wife used to say, I'm not the tastiest cookie in the box so I probably don't really know what I'm rambling on about. I played Monday (Damn nice weather for NW PA) and plan on playing a lot once it gets nicer. Be safe out there Spies!
  9. I have to agree with Chisag (So I must be "That Second Guy"). I bought a dozen used Pro V1s a couple of years ago and about half played well and the other half just plain sucked! Really not worth the price even for used balls. My suggestion is watch ads for deals which are usually in the late winter when they are getting rid of last years balls. Dicks and Golf Galaxy (owned by Dicks) both have excellent deals. My favorite are the MaxFli StraightFli which I've played for several years when the ground is soft (plugs). They will have a sale of $10 a dozen if you buy 3 dozen or more and for that price these are pretty decent balls and they have the different colors in addition to white. Another ball they sell is the Top Flite 2019 XL Distance (white or yellow) and they will have a Flash sale for $5.99 a 15 pack. Tour balls? No! If you are just starting, they will be good, especially for the price. And best of all, they weren't sitting on the bottom of a pond for a year. As always, JMHO!
  10. I've been playing the G700s (5-9, PW, GW, SW) for two years and absolutely love them. This is a great opportunity for someone. Good Luck!
  11. I played a lot of Matte balls last season and they perform as well as the glossy for me but the one thing I did notice was they get dirtier quicker. I had to use the ball washer more often rather than just wipe off with a towel. The Matte Green color helped me to see them in flight and on the ground. I would prefer a yellow but they don't make it.
  12. Wilson Staff RM Midsize set for $120....I'll be back...need to find a corner to curl up in the fetal position and cry....Damn!
  13. Today (02/26) Golf Galaxy has the same sale I posted above from Dicks. The Maxfli Tour Matte Greens are $17.98 a dozen until 10pm EST tonight. Also, my favorite mud plug balls, the Maxfli StraightFli Matte Whites are $6.98 a dozen. Are they tour caliber...NO...do they hurt less when they plug in the mud and you can't find them compared to a Pro V1...YES! And they actually play fairly well. JMHO....
  14. Veteran and Broke 80 please....Broke 80 numerous times and got close to the 70 mark but there always seems to be that one hole...maybe this year! Thank You!!!
  15. Yeah, a slight bit old but I like the setup. I loved the G25 Irons when I played them (G700s now). I just replaced my Ping Glide ES 58deg LW with a Glide 3 60deg LW. The Glide 3s got some good write-ups. Good luck with the medical issues. I'm sorta there now..biopsy last week that I'm still waiting on and a Gallbladder sonogram Tuesday cause I guess I have nothing better to do.
