  • Head over to Dublin and check out Jacks host course and get a street banner picture for your collection its very close to C bus

Headed out early tomorrow am. Plan on checking out Ohio Stadium Nicklaus Museum on campus,and a park named in his honor. Checking out the state capital as well..at least a quick drive.  Cutting out a few hours after class is over on Friday. Id planed to go earlier and explore more and golf, but a trip to ER  and a truck repair sucked up some $$$.

Home at 2am this morning after spending 2 days wirh Jim and 2 other students. GW is making nothing on this class as they buy lunches, supply beverages, books, and some free Golf Pride stuff. They are banking on you being a customer. I thought GW was just a 30-40 employee operation , but that isnt the case.They have well over a 100 employees and do move much more product then iI imagined.  We stayed busy so no time to tour the operation.  

I went to the 2 day repair class.It covered loft lie bending, broken shaft repair, shaft removal and install, grips removal and install a multiple of ways, extensions, some swingweighting, bore thru. and whatever questions we came up with. Not sure if they covered anything extra after I left Friday. Class went over some but I had to get to a plane. Brief panic moment on the first day. Heavy rains and super windy the first day. Lost power and that building has no back up. Came back on after a couple minutes..whew..

Jim is a wealth of info and just throws out info and it can be overwhelming. He was great to go over it again as needed and explained in a way that Ithe students could understand. 

This class was beginner level stuff. but offered insights of different methods to accomplish the same thing.The make up of the 3 students in the class. was a very beginner inthe club repair world, a gu who went to a class there in the late 90s and does word of mouth work out of his house, and myself who has just begun dabbling in the last year. The new guy was intriqued and overwhelmed but did well. The experienced guy eased thru class but learned some things along the way in terms of different methods and easier methods or more accurate methods. For me I breezed  thru as well but learned some things I will change and re-evaluate certain proceses and  my tools and future purchases.  

I did take a large suitcase for some purchases to save on shipping but held off until  evaluate what I really need.  Didnt want spur of moment purchases. 

I will go back next year for a fitting class.

Great write-up. They're only about 2 1/2 hrs away I'm going to have to make a day trip. Just curious what was the cost of the session.
