What do you want for Christmas?

Recommended Posts

Not sure if it is the same in the States(although I am sure it must be), but the shops here in South Africa are pulling out all the stops for Christmas. They have been for a couple of weeks already.

 

Doesn't create the right atmosphere around Christmas, and this post is probably leaning towards that same vein. So while Christmas is about much, much more than just presents, it is still fun to both give, and receive presents.

 

I have been out of the golfing loop for a bit, and was wondering what new goodies have come out that might look good in a stocking, or even in a large box under the tree.

 

After having read the reviews of the Scor's, I wouldn't kick a box of their wedges out of my bed. And that Nike rain jacket that was reviewed a while back on the main site is schweet!

 

My question is, what golfing presents would you like for Christmas?

In my Clicgear B3 cart bag on my Clicgear 3.0 pushcart:

Rocketballz 10.5* stock stiff shaft

Adams Idea A3 Boxer 19*

TMag Rocketbladez 4i-6i

Mizuno MP53 7i-PW

Mizuno MP-R12 52*, MP-T11 56*, MP-T10 60*

Some old Odyssey putter (Don't laugh, it gets the ball in the hole nicely)

Bridgestone E6

 

Walking on air with my True Tours and Kentwool socks

 

No-one will ever have golf under his thumb. No round ever will be so good it could not have been better. Perhaps this is why golf is the greatest of games. You are not playing a human adversary; you are playing a game. You are playing old man par.

You swing your best when you have the fewest things to think about.

It is the same way here and given my occupation ......

 

 

I'll take a week of silence, sitting by the beach, coffee in the morning, range in the afternoon, grill in the evening, scotch and cigar afterwards.

 

It would be a huge bonus if I didn't have to say a word for the entire week but that's asking too much.

 

Oh and it's under the tree waiting for me already.

Taylor Made Stealth 10.5  Aldila Ascent Red R flex

Ping G410 5, 7, 9 wood  Alta 65 R flex

Wilson D7 forged 5-GW -  Mamiya recoil 460 R flex

Ping Glide 3.0  Ping Eye 2 grind 58.8

L.A.B. Mezz.1 32.5"

Titleist Pro VIx optic yellow with revkev stamped on them

8 hrs of uninterrupted sleep :)

 

On the golf related side there really isn't to much I'm looking for, maybe some golf balls but that can usually wait until spring.

First my wife and children to be healthy and happy and enjoy the season.  Second to get a solid week in the same state at home with my family which recently with my travel schedule has been few and far between.....and next year will prove to be even more difficult since I will be across the country for a few weeks a month.

 

From the golf side my wife has already started the process of having a putting green built for me in the house and should hopefully be done in the next four to six weeks :)

I have everything I need..a beautiful son and family,,, I know I only play golf once a month now, but just watching my son grow and learn away around this world is like Christmas everyday for me

 

My gift would be for the rest of the world to experience the joys of being a parent,,

Well for me I've got a bag of sticks that are working, enough balls to keep me going for the next few months and a warm hat for the winter.....

 

 

But, I'd love to be able to play a little more next year - mind you given the way things are going just having my job come January would be a start.

 

 

If someone wants to buy me a pair of royal and awesome trousers and the matching flat cap, well that'd be just fine for me. Can never have enough fine loud clothing

Rest in peace long sticks - I'll remember you

Me and the wife quit the present giving amongst ourselves 15 or so years ago. We don't have any kids I don't have any close living relatives and neither does she. We do however give to some needy family during the holidays. The Good Lord always sends someone our way sometimes it is someone we know and sometimes it aint. But it always works out and it gives us joy for the holidays

Nippon Modus 3 shafts

 

Figuring out the entire Opti-Lock and Opti-Vibe installation

 

TrueLinks indoor putting green.

 

Get a Scratch Golf Custom wedge.  Looking for a 52* wedge that has high bounce and is designed more like a 56* head.

I have a Fujikura US Open Fuel shaft that I won - thanks Fujikura! (just unboxed it). I'd really like a new head to go in it (and the Nike Covert head would look just sooo good in it) along with a Bestgrips blue Gridiron grip! 

 

...it's my "welcome to America" red, white, and blue!

That sounds like an awesome combination.

That's awesome Stu!  We buy our kids crap they don't need or appreciate it seems like.  We also sponsor 2-3 middle school to high school age children a year that are less fortunate.  I have no idea their home situations,  who they are, or what they look like.  But I know that when Christmas break is over and they go back to school that they will have some "name brand" stuff to wear hopefully with a smile.  Kids can be cruel and maybe these kids are spared some of that ridicule by being sponsored.  It is more rewarding than anything I get.  My wife's good friend is over the program,  it's very discreet and she does an AMAZING job. 

 

For me,  I would kinda like an indoor putting green for the basement.  A nice golf swing would be a pleasant surprise as well.

3JACK,

 

If you figured out the intricacies of the Opti lock system, can you do a post on it please?
