My lost clubs showed up on the front porch a little while ago - all accounted for. I’m sooo relieved.

Just getting caught up with this one...WHEW! Sorry for the troubles there but so glad it worked out!

Have a 7:30 appointment tomorrow at the cart garage. Looks like I’ve destroyed another clutch, last clutch replaced Last month. I think Yamaha is having clutch problems on the 2017’s.

Just watched my 13yo end his range session before his PGA Jr match with 2 perfect push draw drivers crushed 175. I’m in awe.

Just got to see a set of the Ben Hogan Ft. Worth Black irons in hand and up close....

That is a proper set of sticks right there.

Dropped off the cart this am for clutch. Asked one of the attendants if the Yamaha clutch has been a problem and she didn’t hesitate, yup big problem. 2017-2018 years have a flaw and Yamaha is trying to resolve it. With the amount of carts they push just thru our area they don’t need the negative press.
I’ll have my ride back later this afternoon. The cart service folks here are pretty good.

Yup, secondary clutch shot and needed replacement. Dropped it off @ 7:30 got the call @ 9:45. With the use of a 2018 loaner it’s an easy situation.

Something just odd about this ad. Not sure what it is 55F5B01A-43AE-43C1-8FD9-D59AA8116CE2.thumb.png.f70b54aa8249a1726f2ae69189548544.png

Is this one of those subscription boxes?

Rick do you have an electric or gas cart? Either way good to know about Yamaha carts. I've got an EZGO RXV so far has been ok after ten years but I know I'll have to put in a new set of batteries this fall ($900.). Regardless it's been a good cart for us.

Yamaha 2017 gas. The Villages is tough on electric carts due to its size. Gas can go anywhere but some electric can’t get round trip to some golf courses. I’ve had to push an electric twice (relatively new cart) because battery couldn’t take it.
The good part of Yamaha is the 5 year warranty. Also the service is great and loaners are always available and they are 2018’s.

Agree.Sadly these youth are in an endless cycle that will keep repeating.They will be the ones yelling in the stands when they are adults.Their families are breeding them into this toxic lifestyles.

My club opened the door up to them many a time.We had an excellent summer youth golf program that was basically free and included the clubs.We reached out to these areas in the communities offering them a chance to learn a game that teaches so many great life morals.Year after year the attendance was nil - none.So we decided ending it with the lack of participation.

Most of this behavior of the parents comes from the belief that their child is the next super star player going to the major level of the sport, and how dare a ref, ump, official make that call against my child.

Yep!  I was a ref for H.S. girls and college women's volleyball.

After almost 3 years I'm going in for my first fitting tomorrow morning. A little excited, a little nervous, and just plain ready to start swinging clubs!

It's OK... it really is.  Doesn't hurt a bit!!   lol

Go in with an open mind; don't pre-select clubs.  Let them do their job.

Thanks guys!  @Kenny B, it’s for the D7 iron test, so the clubs are already decided, which makes my job much easier. Just getting shafts, lie, and length dialed in. But it’s here!  Time to start swinging!

Good points. Just curious - my experience with gas carts on other course has been that they're a bit "jerky' on start-up is that the same with your Yamaha? (disclaimer - these were older carts on those courses and not sure of the brand)
