  1. Just ordered SM8 in raw finish as well. I think the rust is hard to avoid over time. I think the raw finish will actually make the wedges last slightly longer than chrome due to them not having a coating that will wear and make the grooves dull faster.
  2. I played dormie recently. You can still play, but have to book through their partners. (Talamore and tabacco road, I think).
  3. I have a sunday bag that I like bc of how lightweight it is for an evening 9, casual round, par 3 course, etc... Does anyone have good recommendations for lightweight bags with stands. My only gripe with my sunday bag is that there is no stand and sometimes in the morning or after rain will get wet when I have to lay it down. Thanks!
  4. The best way to spend a weekday evening. IMO
  5. Indeed. I bet if you get it refurbished by Scotty you could turn a pretty solid profit. Maybe even better than if you sold it in current condition. I think it cost ~ $290 for full refurbish. New shaft, grip, remilled, paint job, etc...
  6. This is also a good point. I think there are definitely advantages to both an kinda depends on the course you are playing.
  7. I like the rangefinder. It is very useful when laying up on par 5s and playing strategically to your numbers for approach shots. If you have your yardages dialed in, it is nice to know the exact numbers that you're playing to, especially when you get close to the green.
  8. I got fitted for a driver this year and had shaft cut to 44.5". It feel much shorter than my old driver (46"), but I have found that I have much more control and didn't lose any distance with a shaft that is fitted correctly. I would recommend a fitting and playing around with it.
  9. I am think of getting a 3 wood this year. Have always had 5 wood, but think that it makes sense to have the 3 wood off the tee. 5 wood isn't used that often bc I am trying to play smart instead of going for greens from 250+. How much harder would you say the 3 wood is to hit off the deck?
  10. Definitely worth a trip to Sweetens. Great place. The course at Sewanee is also there and I've heard is worth a trip if you're in the area.
  11. For instruction I like athletic motion golf (AMG) and the golf room. For original content, you can't go wrong with No Laying Up and the Fried Egg Golf.

  13. I am intrigued by the new Ben Hogan U-Hi. Has anyone hit this iron yet?
  14. In Pinehurst, I love pine needles and mid pines. I've heard that Asheville has some decent courses, like the Omni resort course. In the Raleigh NC area I'd play some of the University courses, like the Duke course and UNC Finley Course.
