  1. Thanks for your reply. I honestly didn’t or don’t know and wondered, I’m not a doctor or orthopedic surgeon but having had to do rehab for a knee replacement I just wondered.
  2. Obviously good to see him appearing to not having to use a cane or crutch and be weight bearing BUT if his ankle was as bad as reports said, might he still need an ankle surgery or replacement? Like rehab the leg then when it’s recovered we’ll fix your ankle?

    I also played Elbel last week for the first time, pleasantly surprised at the layout. Greens were fairly quick for a muni. Played Meadow Valley in Middlebury and the Warren also. The Warren was in fantastic shape.
  4. My Ventus red driver and 3 wood shaft both have the raised texture you speak of. Is the smooth one with Velocore?
  5. Paige McKenzie agrees with this. Why they paired her with Cara Robinson and Duval baffles me. Duval was clearly irritated with ‘ol Paige yesterday as she was struggling to put a complete thought together in a sentence.
  6. Brooks hasn't won a Major since his Saturday press conference at the Harding Park PGA where he was running his mouth. He didn't win that one as Morikawa outplayed him and at this year's PGA Phil outplayed him. I predict that Brooks won't win another Major. His intimidation factor is gone and there's just too many good young players that are hungry.
  7. After a few rounds with the Jaws I'm leaving it in the bag. It did take some getting used to around the green but I figured it out. I still haven't hit a bunker shot with it yet. So my initial disappointment has shifted to it's in the bag.
  8. Billy Bob’s has an assortment of weights that work with the Callaway heads. I’m not sure if Callaway sells weights direct or not. https://www.billybobsgolf.com/product/callaway-2021-epic-speed-big-bertha-b12-driver-fairway-headweights/
  9. Maybe that’s why I like the PM so much because it’s the only club I use around the greens.
  10. First round with my 58-10 wedge today. Been playing a PM grind Callaway in a 58 for about 5 seasons. The Jaws Full Toe feels nothing like the PM grind. I will say on full swings the Jaws feels better but around the greens the PM grind is vastly better for my short game technique. Maybe I assumed I could just throw the new one in the bag and there would be no adjustment but obviously I’m going to have to spend some time learning how to use the Jaws. Just left Golf Galaxy and regripped my PM in case I end of not using the Jaws. what are anyone else’s impressions?
  11. I can relate. Have bicep tendonitis in my right arm, cortisone shot 2 weeks ago seems to have somewhat worked. Still sore at night after playing that day but I've had it for almost three seasons now. Switched to Steelfiber shafts earlier this year in hopes of mitigating flare ups. Need a new knee (right knee) as uneven lies or bunker shots make it incredibly painful. Had my left knee replaced 4 years ago so I know it's time for the right one. Being in constant pain sucks but man do I love golf.
  12. Paul Azinger would say the pressure gets to him on Sunday's.
  13. Guaranteed method right here as I've been doing this for years on all of my drivers. I use the Golfworks high density lead tape that can be bought at Golf Galaxy. I apply on the driver where I need it, one strip at a time and use a butane lighter to heat the tape up after I apply it. If you're going to put a strip on top of another, just heat each strip after application. It's important to really hit the edges of the tape and heat that up enough to where it almost melts and becomes part of the head itself. If you do it right, that tape isn't coming off unless you peel it with a tee or a pointed edge of scissors or a knife. I can take some pictures later if you would like to see what I'm talking about.
  14. Playing Prairie View in Byron for the first time in a couple years tomorrow morning. Driving over from the Quad Cities.
  15. Harry Higgs locker being on the bottom is disrespectful...insert sarcasm Where's Tiger's locker?
  16. There's quite a few who can't differentiate who's role is what. Feherty doesn't do what Bones does. Maltbie doesn't do what Hicks does. Dottie Pepper doesn't do the same job as IBF. Faldo and Azinger are supposed to be the lead analysts. Like Johnny Miller and Ken Venturi before them. Azinger sits in a position that has historically been a Major champion and who is expected to contribute something useful to the telecast. In that respect, he swings and misses pretty consistently. I've got to think that NBC makes a change in the off-season. If I was them I would give Phil a blank check and tell him he can play all the CBS tournaments he wants to and miss the cuts on the NBC events!
  17. At my local Golf Galaxy Saturday night I got the last dozen Chromesoft Triple Track on the shelf. They had plenty of X and X LS though. Didn’t seem to be many Pro V’s on the shelves either.
  18. Cam might win with a par.
  19. Did Callaway balls have the Hex dimples prior to them acquiring Hogan? I seem to recall the first ball I remember having Hex dimples was the Hogan Apex Tour Deep which was a design update to the Strata Tour Ace if I'm remembering correctly. Callaway bought Hogan/Top-Flite in 2004 or 2005? They wanted those Top-FLite ball patents...solid core balls with hex dimples.
  20. Brooks in the Zoom Victory Tour 2's today at the Open. Interesting...
  21. I believe Molinari finished 3rd @ the John Deere and then went to win the Open in 2018. I'm also local and seems the field is pretty weak this year. Might head out Friday and watch although ticketing is all virtual this year.
  22. I think of guys like Viktor Hovland or Si Wi Kim who wear Nike shoes but not Nike clothing and Hovland always seems to have a fresh pair of Roshes. Kim posted a picture on Instagram the week of last year's PGA I think and had 4 different models that were special to San Francisco. I'd assume all Nike sponsored athletes (Rory, Paul Casey, Brooks, Finau, Day, Wolff, Bubba, Varner III) all get multiple pairs Majors week since Nike does special versions. For Adidas, DJ always has a fresh pair it seems. That ultra boost is pretty difficult to keep clean.
  23. Agree with @mat562 but if I could have someone's swing and ball striking I'd take Henrik Stenson's. Just pure power and repeatability.
  24. Except Tiger is 45 and is going to be coming off a compound fracture of his leg and will be doing rehab on a left knee that has seen multiple surgeries and a back that has been fused. I would love nothing more than Tiger to return and be competitive but the odds of that happening are very slim. Plus the ankle is probably going to require future surgery if not a reconstruction which will impact his walking a course more so than the leg.
  25. I'm a big fan of this news. Maybe this speeds up play a little. Buddy of mine who I play with frequently bought one for our home course and I looked at it once and couldn't make any sense of it. He used it our first year there but now rarely carries it. I could see where it helps a player their first time seeing a course but I've always thought your eyes and feet could tell you as much.
