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

Lines on balls/ Tees
Too many bad putters spend way to much time lining up ALL their putts with lines on their ball.
Tees are the Swiss Army knife of golf. You can use them as a divot repairer, ball marker, head scratcher, partner picker, spike and groove cleaner. Can also be used to elevate the ball off the grass before hitting.
People who whine about Scotty Cameron prices/Scotty Cameron putters. But only the old ones.
