Let me know when you come up in the Spring - always up for a round of golf in New England!  

Definiely will do, and I haven't 100% ruled out this December tour.  Flights are cheap, and if I wanted to be I could be back in time for Saturday nights game. Hmmmh?

Stroker Ace is already in for the 8th -- trying to get tvgolfer to go as well.  It could be epic...although I probably wouldn't use those words inside the hallowed halls...

I wonder if it's like the tour of the Hershey's plant where they give you chocolate at the end.🤣

Would definitely be worth the trip to leave with a sampler box.

LMAO!

 

Well if Stroker Ace is in, I need to try and get there, if nothing else maybe to sabotage his laptop as he and I might be headed for a Fantasy Football showdown!! 

 

What a fun time that would be, I need to look at the probability of this very quickly then since they are limited to 6 people.

I got to tour the Bridgestone ball plant in GA about two months ago. I was blown away by how many steps there are to the process and how much quality goes into the production and then the inspection and testing of the balls before they leave the facility.

Really was impressive. I'm sure the Titleist one is even larger.

Well, think about it - joining Team Titleist gives them another name on their mailing list. Email blasts are VERY inexpensive marketing tools with varying degrees of effectiveness. 

 

And there's the rub...I'd like to see it but not by getting emailed constantly. So, it's a hard pass for me.

Don't you have or can't you set up a "contest/junk" etc email that you never really check, but can use for contest entries and thinngs like this. I know it might not be worth the effort, but it would avoid filling your email box with unwanted emails. 

 

I have one like that for such things (not Team Titleist, as I actually find their emails very informative and full of good content) but for other contests.

Yeah, I'd get the same reaction if I tried to schedule it with the Fiance.   But, what about a spring golf trip with guys from the internet that you've never met.  Would she be on board with that  :D

    Hi. We are addicted to golf and rent high-end golf clubs (PXGs, Callaways, Titleists, and TaylorMades) on demand in the LA area. My Golf Spy looks like a great site and we look forward to interacting with other golfers on the site.

    he best players don't get overwhelmed with mechanical thoughts as they stand over the ball. They pick one feel-based thought and go with it. Steal one of these tour thoughts for some pre-swing clarity.
