cardoustiecardoustie haha, we don't play for 5'sTasmania to CanadaMembers Posts: 12,573 ✭✭✭✭✭✭✭


Well it's December in the Great White North and our course has been closed for a month now. Dog walking only



I've made some tweaks to the set up for next year and I am looking forward to testing the new additions out when I head to NW Florida in 2 weeks for the Xmas holidays (between Destin and PCB). Camp Creek, Shark's Tooth, and Windswept Dunes, here I come.



A little background. Shockingly, i'm going to be 50 in ~ 3 weeks, where does the time go? My cap in the middle of the season is usually 2.5 ish and from early Spring to late Fall can run from 2.1 to as high as 4.9. My cap is a little higher than it should be based on the extreme difficulty of my home course. I'd be a 2 or 3 at most every other course I play at. I get in about 100 rounds a year (this includes about 15 rounds down South during holidays). Played university golf 25 years ago when I was a true tourney scratch, I think I still have the old manual handicap card where I got as low as +0.4. This summer I shot anywhere from 72-86. Three best tournament rounds were 72, 73, 73. My all time personal best is 68.



Like a true wrx'r I have way too many clubs, and I also have a slight obsession MyJoys Icon Shield Tips



Anyways, here's a pic of the current bag (red and yellow on far left) and the clubs that have earned a spot in it.

    It's a head on a shelf right now with a whack of other bench warmers, including a 3 deep head. It was really good with a AD BB and AD MT but not GBB good

    The GBB is just the simplest club for me ever off the deck. Works with my action for some reason. Half inch over length gets the swingweight to D5 and I am good to go

If my old man was living he would approve too especially your purple ones. He used to buy plain white ones back in the day and have a sign painter friend of his paint them up.I guess to say that you like Ping bags is an understatement

    Swag...any plans to make it to the Emerald Coast soon? We've currently got 40* with wind and rain, lovely.
    Never forget that the luxury of being
