Got a problem to resolve.  Seems my G410 Driver has a broken/stripped adjusting screw.  
I felt a little “rattle” Friday on a drive but didn’t see anything wrong.  Went to tighten the screw with the wrench and it just keeps turning, inside of thread in shaft may have stripped.

Anyone ever hear of this happening?

I have heard of an occasional tip adapter having a stripped thread, not brand specific either. 

Can you pull the head off the adapter tip?   

If I understand correctly it should be a simple install of a new adapter and new screw.  Or if the screw snapped off just below the head then pull the head off the shaft & carefully remove the rest of the screw from the adapter and only a new screw would be needed.

The head will not come of the shaft with screw removed even after hitting numerous shots with screw removed.

Golf shop guys didn’t want to do any damage so they just packed it up and sent it to Ping.

Lucky the damn thing didn't come loose at a most inopportune time (i.e. heading toward some immovable and scratch-inducing object) while the screw was out.

True, I have a couple guys who “creep forward” on the left side of the Tee Box because they use the next forward Tee.  Since I’m a Lefty they are in the danger zone if I ever mishit (shank😱) or in this case the head comes off.  I tell these guys constantly to get in back of the player on the Tee.  I guess 75-80 years old don’t remember 😜

Someone posting fish pics?  Had a chance to fish at a private pond on Sunday.  Landed a couple of good ones.  Too windy for fly rods, had to resort to throwing spinners

Rebooked now, but not until June 5th. That's how busy my local CC is.

I did a stupid thing today (maybe 2). Been waiting for a few weeks for 5 tons of pea gravel to be delivered. Well it showed up today. After shoveling, moving, dumping, and raking out three of the five tons I was toast. Then I sit down to rest some and realize it is DEMO DAY tomorrow.

Crap, I now get the kids and head out to the store to get Mothers Day presents. Didnt want to interfere with Demo Day. I felt like an old man with a turd in his pants walking around the stores.

Hopefully I can move tomorrow. There is still 2 more tons sitting in wait for me when I get home tomorrow. 

Then brain storm #2 hits me. " Hey dear why don't we go to the club Sunday for Mothers day brunch!" She is in complete agreement until........wait for it....

Why don't you meet me there at around 11:30 with the kids. I'll be done golfing by then. Anyone know how cold it will be tonight. I might be sleeping in the shed!

Hopefully you have some thick blankets to keep you warm in the shed tonight, don't want you being completely immobile tomorrow. 

Seriously though, I hope you aren't too sore tomorrow and can give your wife a great Mother's Day.

The fitting turned into a lesson because he was seeing my path was way off. Fixed that and saw an increase in my distance into he hybrid of 15-30 yards carry. He said work on my swing and come back to get fitted for a driver when my swing is better and he gave me things to work on which works. Super nice guy and didn’t charge me for the fitting he charged me for a lesson which was cheaper. It was a nice time guy was great to work with.

That's when you know you have an honest guy.

Things haven't improved at USPS. We mailed a birthday card to our DIL 2 weeks ago and she just got it (a week late). That's 2 weeks from Tampa to Cleveland. Yikes!

I hav been processing my last round for quite a few days now.  I played extremely well, and I couldn’t put a finger on why.

Well, today using some metacognition... I have learned that I need to stop practicing.

I hadn’t touched a club for over a week at least, didn’t even warm up on the range.  So instead of smashing range balls all the time, I’m just going to hit the course.  And play whatever shot shape comes out that day.

Practice... just makes me worse.

Practice... 🙄

A little advice:

1. If it's sunny and you go to the range, don't forget your sunblock.

2. If you happen to forget your sunblock, don't hit two large buckets.

3. If you happen not to heed this advice and have a buzzed haircut, don't wear a trucker style hat as the rays of sunshine can burn your head. 

 

There have been a few points and times in my life that I have had a hat "painted" on my head.
