Thanks for the suggestion.   I did my best to remove the s, but the computer keeps putting it back.    It's frustrating being a computer illiterate, if for no other reason than I cannot fully participate here.   But I've learned to accept life as a digital dinosaur.  


Sorry, probably a fairly easy fix if we could get in your computer.

Unfortunately, I am using my office desktop.   That's why I don't post at night or on weekends because I am not in my office.    On January 1, 2019, I will enter full retirement, so I will need to purchase a desktop, that hopefully I can use and remain a participant on this site.   But, I must admit that I am extremely worried because I am a computer illiterate.  I fear that I may become a memory here, but I trust a good and fine memory.   I certainly appreciate your offer to help and MDGolfHacker has offered his assistance as well.  

I did watch the "Driver vs, Driver" episode last night.   It was great to see Adam and Sam; to say they were impressive would be a major understatement.   Their comments were accurate, insightful and illustrated their technical knowledge.   They also hit drives over 300 yards, so to quote an often used comment: "they play a game for which I am not familiar".

First Congratulations on your impending retirement, if I hadn't already said that!~

Now, I usually hate telling people what to buy and do with their money, but before you invest in a desktop, make sure and speak to MDGolfhacker.  There is really no reason to have a desktop now days even for home computing.  A laptop--with a docking station--can take care of any computing needs you have.   And for MGS browsing and such, you could probably just invest in a very inexpensive I pad or tablet.   I mean very inexpensive.   Definitely come out to the course one day this winter--after you are no longer working and we'll set you straight.

Totally agree!!  I had a desktop for years at work, but even before I retired, I had the company buy me a laptop.  I could take all of my "stuff" with me when I traveled!!  After I retired and gave up the company laptop, I bought an iPad.  The new ones are better than the one had.  I eventually gave that iPad to my wife and bought a laptop.  While I like it, I may go back to an iPad this next year.  

BTW, let me welcome you to impending retirement.  Make a plan before you do.  Don't retire, and then think "Now what do I do?"

The magnus had the best smash but did it have the best flight. Apparently the looks are a big part of it. I can’t think of the names, Cortex, and the young kids infinity which is now a z track will be the final I think. The magnus looks are going to keep it from going further. Many comments on, if these were on the rack. Many of them said they wouldn’t even try the magnus based on looks. That matters when you are trying to sell.

My thoughts watching this were that they decided just to focus on "smash" for some random reason. You could see that they were hitting one driver with 1.45 and another with 1.48. But the 1.45 was going 30 yards further due to launch angle and spin.

It was really weird to watch a comparison of drivers pertaining exclusively to a metric that doesn't mean a huge amount in club fitting . I don't know if I have ever even heard Rick S mention SF in any of the reviews of his I have watched, and I've watched a lot.

That said, Sam was only getting about 1k of spin with the cortex. Yikes.

Even the last segment was odd with them hitting a long drive. Without comparing it between the drivers or to their current gamer I literally have no idea what the purpose of it was.

Still, good to see MGS getting some air time.

I don’t like the looks of his driver, but I do like the  charisma of Jimmy, he has brought for something different that is performing just as well as the traditional driver. However, I think that’s the real problem, although his design is different, and looks different, the performance is not better. Innovation yes, but will his Driver market to the target audience. Personally I don’t think it will, so I think he will be next to go.
