i’m really hoping TM still has some stock of 8* heads left. if not, i’m looking at july for a sim2 replacement. 

Too much twist on that face, been working out huh?

Some of you might get a kick out of this. I was surfing through the different threads on here and thought I had pressed on the community button. Anyways my wife popped in about the exact same time the

home sweet (new) home. made sure to get my clubs off the truck and into the basement so they weren’t cold for another night. priorities are definitely in order, haha.   

Hadn’t had a chance to post a pick of the new truck

Jokes aside, that sucks man, sorry.  Can't say I've been in that position before...will TaylorMade do anything for you ya think or are you past that window?

the guys at my local shop are handling it. tm will replace the head no questions asked. the only issue is if they have sim 8* heads in stock. if they don’t. i’ll be waiting a long time for a sim2 replacement, which i really don’t want. 

if that’s the case, i’ll likely go Cobra RadSpeed and trade in the sim2 head for credit.

Perhaps more concerning, the scales look to be a bit different. The bottom 1" line is about at the 1 3/16" of the top while the 2" appears to be right at 2 1/4", so 1" on the bottom is 1 1/6" on the top?!?!?!

There are very few people in this world I truly dislike and he made that list really quickly. All I will say is he is just not a very nice or self aware person.

Discovered a deposit in my account today (expected but timing a nice surprise) and with the milder weather (69 yesterday and 70 today in what is technically late winter in Buffalo), called the Buffalo Olmstead Parks Conservancy Manager of Golf Operations and renewed my season pass for Cazenovia Park GC that includes South Park and Delaware Park golf courses for 2021.  Looking forward to opening hopefully mid April if this weather trend holds true ⛳.     🏌️‍♂️

Horrors and joys, this one is my first one at the Senior rate 😳 🙂

Dang....That's crazy.....Off by 3/16" could cause some head banging moments. 

I always use a single tape measure when working so all measurements are 'relatively' the same to each other.  But I was doing it because the end clip spacing can be different from tape to tape throwing things off by as much as 1/8".  I will have to check the tape's in the truck to see if they are off by that much!!

Hmm maybe that's been my problem with trim work. When I get back to Ohio, I'm going to put them side by side.

Man I miss those riding days! This bike and a banshee quad are on my wife's wedding ring finger [emoji22].. But on the upside, I traded those hobbies for more golf and found MGS in the process.

Other than a surprisingly sore injection site I had no adverse reactions to the first dose...hoping that holds true for this one.  I keep hearing of people getting knocked on their arse by the second one.  My wife got the Pfizer and the second one got her pretty good.
