  1. My father was in a similar spot with Lockheed before he retired. He had hit the salary cap for the position he was in so regardless of what he did he could not make any additional pay. Up until he retired, and they called him back to be a "Consultant" and basically doubled his fee I do enjoy the extra pay from being in an upper position at my company, but I do miss doing my old work in the warehouse sometimes. I look forward to days where they are short staffed and I "Have" to go out and help...Kept me in better shape when I was out there too. The office added a few pounds.
  2. With the Preface being that I know nothing about your current Company, Position, or work duties. I can say as a person at my company who has to make some of the promotion/raises decisions, There is definitely a point where a certain job just isn't worth any more money (regardless of how good that person is at doing it) and in order to keep them happy we have had to offer them to move into a more challenging position (provided we also felt they were capable of doing the new job). In some instances the person liked moving into a new role, in others they did not and ended up leaving. Some people
  3. @Chip StrokesWhat is wrong with T-Rex arms....?
  4. Newest update: For the returned club, I am happy to report that Tour Edge issued a refund with no problems. Thinking about getting the 3 wood to fill that distance gap and hoping it plays remotely close to the hybrid we tested. For the Tested club my latest round was AWESOME!!! Best performance yet! After having my newborn I finally got to go out and play golf again after a month or so off. It was for our club championship. The course we were playing was a bit short so my driver was too much for most holes (Cinnabar Hills Lake-Mountain). As such, I leaned heavily
  5. Thanks. yeah I saw it pop up about 2-3 weeks ago and managed to snag one. That said, I have not been able to test out any of the weights as the air quality was terrible for a while, and now I have a new born so may not be out playing a lot anytime soon...Hopefully I am wrong on that part though wife permitting...
  6. Congrats @golfish! on the wheel spin edging us out. It was a nail biter!
  7. I have several Ping putters and often times when I seem to have lost my stroke on the green will revert back to them to re-set...However, if I'm being honest and as nice as I can be, those are far from attractive putters. Though I suppose aesthetics are also quite subjective. Good luck to those who want to try these!
  8. While I agree that people should practice the shorter shots more than they currently do, I disagree that it is always easier to be closer. Even watching the tour, they don't always just hit it as close as possible. They lay up to "their number". differences in people's swings and comfort levels as well as pin locations and green firmness will determine the best place to lay up from. There are for sure times I would much rather have a full swing in so that I don't have to think about back swing length, or so I can get extra height on the ball, or so I can generate more spin.
  9. Sad news...Got the new hybrid in, and was able to test it briefly. The lower loft and loner shaft gained me about 8 yards avg, but not enough to justify dropping the 3 wood from the bag. That said I got to test out the customer service a bit more and they did AWSOME! Extremely fast response times to emails and promptly provided a return shipping label. I would not hesitate to order from them again to test out other clubs. I hit their hybrid so well I might just have to try the comparable 3 wood...If that happens I'll keep you all posted. Unfortunately, I live near all the fires going on
  10. WEIGHTS ARE IN STOCK TODAY ON COSTCO.COM For anybody who has the putter but has been wanting the weight set (myself included) I have been checking every day since this putter launched and it is in stock right now as of this post (just placed my order)...GOOD LUCK everybody! https://www.costco.com/kirkland-signature-putter-weight-kit.product.100657236.html
  11. New 16* with longer shaft came in last night and it looks as pretty as the first one did!! Unfortunately, due to many of the raging fires in our area the air quality is not such that I can test it out just yet...Hoping that we get some reprieve soon so I can test it out and compare distance between both specs before my wife goes into labor and I am shut down from golf for another couple of weeks (due date T-minus 18 days...)
  12. Ok after my round last weekend where I hit this club basically perfectly every shot (Again!) I couldn't hold back any more... I just ordered another one before their limited editions run out! Got a 16° / Project X HZRDUS Smoke Black 6.5 / X-Flex w/ a little extra length in the shaft. Hoping that this combo of lower loft and longer shaft will truly be able to replace my 3 wood this time. I just hit my current one so good I have to try...Hoping it comes in fast!
  13. I have been lucky enough to avoid this on both my trips to Pebble, but I have also Played Spyglass (just down the road) twice and never seen the place!!...Could not see more than 100 yards in front of me. Was during NCGA turni's and they don't let you wait. You literally would hit your shot from the fairway or green the Yell back "CLEAR!" so the group behind you knew they could hit. While watching the pro-am you mentioned I was having flashbacks to those rounds..More props to them for managing it so well!
  14. I would vote Bandon simply because you mentioned cost is a factor and in every way it is cheaper for more (more golf for more days). I think the Caddie cost is like $100 + Tip at the end of the round (another $100?). I would say Spyglass and Spanish Bay are both great choices to take a look at. In the same stretch of road is Poppy Hills as well which is pretty decent track. If you drive up the road a bit there is also Bayonet Black-horse Golf (36 holes) that are some of my favorite courses in the area AND at a lower price than any of the ones on 17 mile drive.

  15. Went out to play this weekend at Carmel Valley Ranch Golf Course. It was suppose to be a getaway from the heat at my house, but alas, it was not to be. Started the round with temps around 95 with no wind...I don't like heat. Luckily a slight breezed kicked up around the 10th hole that made the back nine much more palatable and the scores proved it. I had a goal in mind to actually try and play this course "Smart" and not just bomb driver all day since this course is pretty relatively short. It started off fine until I dunked 2 balls in the water on the 4th hole en route to a !9!!!.
