Am I insane?

dmecca2dmecca2 Scranton, PAMembers Posts: 81 ✭✭✭

I had a dream last night that I won a PGA tour event by making every putt I hit. I've had these dreams before, but this one was different because I was using a putter I have never held before or seen in person. I actually think this putter isn't visually appealing at all. So after waking up from the best dream ever, I opened ebay and did a quick search and BOOM, there it was. Same putter, grip, everything. I immediately purchased it and plan on gaming it as soon as it arrives.

Has anyone else had dreams like this? and am I nuts for making this purchase? (my fiance says yes)

    Never dreamed of golf. Faldo showed up in one of my dreams at a concierge.

    Gotta see a photo of the putter, then comment on sanity.

    its just a ping B60 scottsdale tr with a red and white superstroke grip. I've always hated the look of it, but for some reason in that dream I felt like I couldn't miss anything with it.

    Hogan famously dreamt of playing a round where he 1-putted every green except the last. He described it as a nightmare. Imagine if he had a Ping Scottsdale TR B60.

    That still sounds like the best dream ever. 19 putts!?!

    When I played hockey I used to dream about getting to the arena and discovering I had forgotten some small piece of equipment, like my elbow pad. This would send me on a frantic search for my elbow pad, which I would never find, and I would wake up in a small panic. I had this dream at least once a week.

    Recently I had the exact same dream involving my putter. It was the first time I dreamt this since high school, and it was not a great feeling.

    After you woke up did you go to Ebay and buy a new wedge? ;-)

    When you get the chance, test it out at Jack Frost National. The greens are in pretty good shape for late summer, very undulating and very slick.

    Plays golf? Check.

    Participates in GolfWRX? Check.

    Impulse buys putter off eBay after having a dream? Check.

    Yep, you're crazy. Congrats. But it's the good kind of crazy, the kind you can talk about around in the bar after your first round with the new putter.

    Remember, sanity is a one-trick pony. Your only trick is rational thought. But when you're good and crazy? Woooooo, the sky's the limit!!!

    I don't care about your sanity level, but I sure as **** want to hear about the first round with the putter!

    That's not insane. It's smart.

    I thought it was "never ask a question you don't already know the answer to."

    Granted, I never went to law school.

    No, you're right. Fleetwood Mac warned us that if you ask a question you might not get the answer that you wanted.
