  1. I've got a fitting (iron set) next month. Interesting to try out against my gamer - Taylormade TP5x.
  2. I'm looking forward to the singles. I can see Rahm vs. Cantalay. If Kopeka plays, I'd put Poulter up against him just for aggravation. Thomas against Mcilroy. Others you'd like to see?
  3. Do you vary the wedges you use (bounce/lofts) based on a particular course turf characteristic or stick with a general setup? Change just one or more than one if you do change?
  4. I signed up but don't include me. Just don't do it. I'm warning you. Don't go there.
  5. I see homogenized courses have entered the conversation. I've seen about all the railroad ties I want for my next two lives. Bunkering - From the wild and wooly at the Scottish Open to the sod faced pits at Royal St. George and other Open rota. US designers are a blind-following-blind troop. Firm, banked faces so the ball rolls nicely down to a flat firm base. Oh the bitching and moaning a few years back at Memorial when Nicklaus used bunker rakes that left small (small) ridges. You'd have thought that he was stealing food from their mouths with the complaints. Most of the tour fairway bunkers are a minor hindrance, perhaps even better than the nearby rough for play. Mad howling if the players could only advance the ball instead of getting pin yardages. It's a damn hazard. Make it play like one. Steep faces. Next rant. No green books next year for any courses. No anchoring - arm lock crap. Putter held in the hands only. Clubs can make local rules for anyone with a disability needing help holding the club. Time for a Snickers bar.
  6. Should I get chosen, my granddaughter's new ipad will be getting a workout. Bigger screen! Also, I'll be in Augusta,GA visiting for a couple of months - shipping address will change if selected.
  7. I signed up but a quick question: Do they float or have one of those finder tiles? Asking for a friend.
  8. Here's Value Golf https://www.valuegolf.com/putter-heads Many are painted but there's a good variety. Another place - don't have any idea about quality. https://www.diamondtour.com/golf-components/club-heads/putters-chippers.html You might scare up a local Goodwill or other thrift store. Some have a oddball collection of very used eclectic clubs. Perhaps suitable for refurbishment?
  9. On course security for the players needs to be better addressed. Didn't learn much from Tiger's mobbing a few years ago. Phones(cameras) should be banned except in award/interview/meet and greet areas. Cut off the alcohol sales two hours before the end ($16 for a beer???). Congrats to Phil, Padraig Harrington, Stricker, Cink, Hoffman, Rose, Matt Jones, Poulter, Stenson, and Westwood. Quite a feat for the age 40+ geezers soaking up a good portion of the leaderboard.
  10. Me, me. Eight handicap. Aging a bit. In need of speed. I'm ready, willing and able. [also right-handed]
  11. Wind forecast is still kind of limp. Thursday/Friday barely get in double figures by the afternoon. The Saturday/Sunday forecast not much at all. https://www.google.com/search?q=weather+kiawah+island&rlz=1CATTSD_enUS774US774&oq=weather+kiawa&aqs=chrome.0.0i131i433j0j69i57j0l7.26078j1j7&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8
  12. Steve Smith Hawaii - BUT - I'm in Augusta, GA for the birth of our new granddaughter (it was Wednesday - 8 lb. C Section, grandma says she's the cutest ever). She's # 10 in the "grand*" dept. We'll be here to December. Alas, I have not qualified for the Masters so you won't see the clubs on TV. hdcp 8.7 Current irons - Maltby forged cavity back, Proforce 95 graphite, stiff,. 150 yd club is 7 or 8 depending on pin position. 7 with front hazard, 8 if a back pin and long is trouble. Okay, I'll level with you. I'm really looking to go single length (got any Cobras or want to look at Pinhawk?). I'd wear these out though, with a through evaluation of the sound characteristics when bouncing balls off Georgia pines. Steveone
  13. Steve Smith here. Handicap, 8.7 and the three hackers I usually play with out here in Hawaii. Note: While you maskless mainland marauders (good on those who wear) are subject to a 14 day quarantine on arrival; golf clubs are not. PS I'd pay for the extra shipping. 7 iron to 150. I'll go low and hard to a back 150 pin with an 8. I use Maltby forged cavity back irons. +0.5 in. 2 up. Sub 70, your testing has put them on my radar and bookmarks for golf clubs because I'm due for a fitting with some hotter faced clubs that still have the thin lines I like. Thanks in advance.
