    Overrated= The dudes on here who think their way is the right way.
    Underrated= Just enjoying the game how ever you like too. If its pounding balls, collecting expensive putters, having a 20index and playing PXG gear so be it.
    Everyone gets all bent the minute their standards aren’t met. The problem isn’t others boys. Stop wasting your time bitzing and whinning. You look and sound like sorry little babies. “Whaaaaaaa, that guy is hitting only driver at the range”. “Waaaaahhhhhhaaaaaaaa..... and its a $1000 JDM that he can afford and I cannot, waaaahahahahahahahahahahahahaaaaaa”...
    shut up and go look in the mirror as I doubt you have met all your expectations.

    Overrated = drawing lines on your golf balls, my ocd kicks in and don’t like it.
    Underrated = Rangefinders, I’m the only one in my weekend league that has one. Some have GPS but imo it’s not the same.

    I like that one. I can play pretty well with hickory shafted irons, wedge (niblick) and putter, and it's a lot of fun.
