  1. The other course I played nearby never had any geese. I don't know how they got rid of them but I remember a couple appeared and heard the greenskeeper asking where they were spotted. Never saw them again. This other course, they are everywhere. I think it's nice enough to see them but don't think a golf course is the best place for them, they make a real mess. I bought a yearly membership but will likely leave and go back to the other course even though this one has a better layout. I don't need to be paddling through that all year.
  2. I recently started playing at a course that has a crazy amount of geese on the course. I can see it being a real mess in the spring/summer when the ball will continually be in the mess they leave. Once we play the ball down, how do we deal with that ? I don't see anything in the local rules, so I'm guessing "tough $hit" literally ? I can't believe how bad it's getting already and there are more of them every time I go out.
  3. Turned cold and a skiff of snow here on Vancouver Island, so no golf for a week ? maybe more. Can't complain, been playing 4 times a week but it has been very wet. So wet that it's been push carts on paths only !! 21,000 steps has actually had me thinking of trying a carry bag instead of my electric trolley. Temperature has dipped below zero *C but prior to that we have been 3-6*C (37-42 F)
  4. I have had FJ winter/rain boots for the last few seasons. Super comfortable but not very durable as the uppers split. They did warranty them but they still never lasted. I got the new model of the same boot last year and now about 13 months in and they are cracking and splitting. I only wear them a few months of the year and am looking for something better that I can get a few seasons out of. I see some guys wearing hiking boots during the wet west coast winter but I like my spiked boots, if they would stand up. What's everyone using ?
  5. I only recently saw the orange whip. A buddy has a similar swing trainer in yellow that I used a few times and liked the way it made me smooth out as I tend to get very quick. I actually ordered the same one as his but delayed in shipping so still waiting for it. Apparently, these swing trainers are allowed to be carried in the bag too, he always has his with him and swears by it
  6. Steve. I'm on Vancouver Island, BC. Canada Right Handed. I would like to test the 18* Hybrid with ES85 F4 Stiff Backup 18* Long iron KBS V Tour Stiff I currently play a Callaway Apex Hybrid between my 4 iron and 3W Thanks for considering me (hope it's open to Canada)
  7. I recently installed a Hzrdus Smoke shaft in my driver. I purposely left it an inch longer so I could try it before final cut and just taped the grip and choked down an inch when I used it. Wasn't quite what I was hoping for so I just tip trimmed the 1" today and will try again.
  8. Steve, Vancouver Island. BC Canada Currently playing Ping Darby Sigma G which I picked after trying a crazy amount of putters and kept going back to. Face balanced. Would like to test the Fetch as it's similar to what I play but with a firmer face, which sounds appealing. I have a fairly straight putter stroke and my current putter improved my putting a lot from my previous blade style putters.
  9. I like the one when the putt goes a mile offline from a mis-read, or way short and somebody quips "I don't know how that didn't go in"
  10. So much for that idea. The wonderful global shipping program lost my shipment. At least they gave me a refund without any hassle.
  11. Thanks. I'll have to keep my fingers crossed that I don't have to shorten it afterwards. I'll check with my pro shop, maybe they can help.
  12. Does anyone pull adapters without using a puller ? I only ask because I have a new adapter to put on a new shaft but it may end up having to come off if I want to tip the shaft after trying it. Thinking ahead.
  13. Worth mentioning that there are better ways to ship than Ebay Global Shipping. I recently purchased a club From a supplier in the US and shipping had it to me in Canada in 4 or 5 days. Meanwhile, I paid more shipping costs for a bare shaft from Ebay that has already been in transit 16 days and counting. I think, in the future I will not buy from any seller using the Global shipping as it is fairly costly and pathetically slow.
  14. I have a new shaft arriving soon that is going to be installed in my driver. With all the information I have seen lately with regards to spine aligning and FLO I am wondering what to have the installer do. Are these shafts aligned from the manufacturer so the logo should be up, or is it always just hit and miss. Shaft is a Hzrdus if I have the installer find the spine, what happens if I rotate the hosel to adjust the loft/lie ?
  15. I have the Rovic RV1S and E-wheels V2. Bought it as a package. No issues with stability and I can lock/unlock the pivoting front wheel to stop it veering off when walking along a sidehill or long fairway.
