I don't know yet but there is an oddly long, skinny, suspicious box under the tree that might (or might not) contain a golf club. We shall see.🤷🏼‍♂️

I am guessing that I don't get anything golf related for Christmas.  I did however get my Brother in Law the Rotex wedge he has been talking about for 4 years now.  He is too cheap to buy it himself a

My wife got me a Precision Pro range finder which I won’t see until tomorrow. Unless you count what my daughter got me. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

Nothing. I tell my daughters every year not to spend a dime on me.... same for everyone else. 

I can buy my own stuff, golf or otherwise. I give to my daughters and grandchildren. I prefer to keep Christmas  about what it's supposed to be about. My greatest gifts are being with family, friends and recognizing the reason for the season, so to speak. 

Not trying to put a damper on this thread.... it's just how I feel about Christmas.

If you buy a $100 gift card at our pro shop you get an extra $20, so my wife usually gets me a gift card for my birthday (Christmas Day). Then I have all year to spend it. I recently spent last years on a Cleveland Putter(Huntington Beach Soft).

I gave myself a new Ping G400 driver which replaced my G Driver that I gifted to my brother. The PGA Tour Super Store is a great place to test clubs. I went in on a Thursday evening when they were super slow. A very professional young man set me up in a hitting bay. We started with the Callaway Subzero 9 degree stiff shaft and ended up with the Ping G400 SFT 10 degree with stiff Tour Shaft. From a “feel” perspective the Callaway was awesome but from data driven performance perspective the G400 performed much better.

 

Along the way we tried several shafts in each driver before finally settling on the Ping Tour. My final numbers were (I’m 53 y/o): 95 mph swing speed, 139 mph ball speed, launch angle 16 degrees, carry distance 242, total distance 259. FYI...... ball speeds averaged 9 mph higher in the Ping over the Callaway.

 

Everything changed when I took the driver to the course. To be honest it is crazy wet in my neck of the woods so the performance was a little skewed by the conditions of sub 50 degree temperatures coupled with fairways that allowed for zero roll. However the performance was so different from the Trackman statistics that I wondered about the integrity of its settings. As a matter of fact I left the course very frustrated after just 12 holes and numerous lost balls.

 

After a two day hiatus, a 10 degree bump in temperatures and a driver adjustment to 11 degrees I headed back out to try my luck again. This time I hit 12 of 14 fairways with an average carry distance of 244 yards. Although the course dried out a bit roll was still nominal at best. I was and still am hesitant about the stiff shaft. My swing speed is at the higher end of a Regular Flex shaft and several mph short of what’s normally recommended for a Still Flex. Performance was much better this time out and yards gained in comparison to my Ping G with Regular Flex Shaft was considerable in regards to carry distance.

Nothing from the wifey and kids... But, I knew that as I finance Christmas at our house.... My in-laws did get me a dozen Pro V1. I’m going to change them out for Bridgestone or AVX.

I didn't get anything golf related, but my family knows that I prefer to get it myself because then I can get something that I want or is useful. However, Chanin surprised me with a Worksharp Ken Onion Edition knife sharpener, about the best electric sharpener you can buy, so it was a good Christmas morning.

Voice Buddy 2. (disclaimer; found it on E-bay last month and my wife said, "cool, Merry Christmas").  We tend too do that over the course of the year for Christmas and B-days.

No golf stuff for me.  My mother in law tried to get me a Top Golf gift card but it apparently got lost in the mail, so I just got cash instead.  I did get a bunch of shaving stuff and some nice cigars but no golf stuff.

A Bosch router and a Porter Cable finish nailer. Some flannel and a pair of jeans and I’m a happy camper.

No golf stuff for me since I got a few other things I actually needed. Christmas is more about the little ones these days. 

I have, however, been REALLY enjoying reading the replies to this tweet. Solid gold. That potty putter seems to have been a hit this year.

No golf stuff. I save that for my birthday.

But I do have some gray whiskers in my 5 day shadow...

Wonder if Santa will crash in my yard next year. Will it be Tim Allen?
