What's on your Christmas list


Recommended Posts

A couple things I’d want within that limit:

- get fitted for a new hybrid/wood (using some hand me down adams woods that I can hit clean every so often)

- Putt Out Putting Mat

- Golf trips (heading to PGA Championship in May, would love to spend a day or two at Sweetens Cove, COVID has delayed that trip)

I have asked Santa for a couple new wedges - my current SW is about 18 years old and gets a lot of use. I also have questions about whether my LW has ever been the correct bounce for me (maybe it is, but I just suck at golf 😉 ). In particular, I want RTX Zipcores.

As usual, I have asked the daughters for golf balls (Srixon and/or Snell). They get bored with buying them, but it is easy, in their price range, and I hate buying them (since it means I have lost too many).

When you get new wedges, you will be amazed how much more spin you get around the green.  Just another thing to learn (re-learn)!

Sweetens Cove looks challenging. I went to the PGA Championship when it was in St. Louis In 2018. Pretty good time. I had tickets for every day. You always know when Tiger was coming. You can see a swarm of people coming. Still prefer the Masters but the PGA was right up there.

I'd agree with you on preferring the Masters over PGA, but I don't have an in with anyone on getting tickets besides throwing my name in for the lottery each time. Masters is definitely on my bucket list. At least PGA gives you the chance to sign up for the waitlist and if you get a good position, have an opportunity to get tickets. For the 2021 PGA I ended up getting Saturday and Sunday tickets, pretty pumped for that.

Season ended about a month ago with really low temps, so I decided to play tennis with the wife and kids to keep my mind off golf for a while.

Besides, Germany just went into another lockdown until mid January, so no golf, no tennis... just play Mario Kart with the kids.

By looking at my bag, I think I would use the $500 for a couple of fitted FWs or hybrids. Those are the last OTR sticks I have.

That's the funny thing with my family. With golf, we try not to be too serious and we absolutely hate cheating. But with cards, Mario Kart, Mario Party and Super Smash Bros, we're all hyper competitive and if you're not cheating, you're not really trying. DK on rainbow road all the way!
