  1. I have the SG5 and with that came access to the mobile app. I haven't carried the SG5 in a couple of years now, much prefer the app. When my subscription for the SG5 runs out, I will definitely renew for just the app.
  2. I ordered custom Blueprints on 4/23 and received shipping confirmation today from Discount Dans.
  3. Appreciate the feedback everyone. I've made more costly mistakes, no big deal on this one.
  4. I did use a small torch unfortunately. This was only the 2nd time I've removed an adapter, I think I did get a little too much heat, but the killer now that I think more about it was I twisted the tip.
  5. A picture I doubt will show anything. I can grab the tip and when I apply slight pressure, I can see the fibers flex and I only need to cut 1" off to remove the weakened area. I was going to cut 3/4" off the butt end to get it to my normal playing length, so now no need to do that. Having said all that, you guys still think the shaft is toast? Thanks
  6. I was trying to remove a Cobra adapter and apparently applied too much heat and frayed the tip of an Atmos TS Black about 1" up from the tip. Correct me if I'm wrong, but cutting that much off will increase the flex among other things? Once I 'm able to use it again, if I find out it plays too stiff for me, is the only option I have to weaken the shaft applying weight to the driver head? Thanks
  7. I ordered blueprints with KBS graphite shafts back on 4/23 from Discount Dans and as of today, I don't have any information about shipping. They said as soon as they receive conformation from Ping, they would update me so I'm patiently waiting.
  8. Thanks OP. I ordered a 52 and 60, the 52 showed up this morning and the 60 is due tomorrow.
  9. Golf doesn't pay the bills, I have way more things in life to frustrate me than to let the things that I enjoy do it.
  10. Picked up last years model and absolutely love them, can't wait to give these a try.
  11. I need to extend a Hzrdus Yellow shaft I have 1/2" and I have no idea what O.D. I need. Anyone know? Thanks
  12. After playing a becu pal 2 for nearly 20 years, I strayed to Bettinardi for a few years. I still have 8 or so of them and while they are great putters, I realized I just couldn't adjust to the weight and went back to the lighter pal 2. Needless to say, I don't see changing back anytime soon.
  13. Augusta National made an offer to Augusta CC a few years ago to buy a small piece of property just behind the 13th tee to lengthen it, but I guess an agreement wasn't reached.
  14. Using a Motocaddy currently, I've had a clubrunner and kangaroo in the past. The motocaddy is easier to transport and has a lithium battery where as both the others used a deep cycle battery which was considerably heavier. The motocaddy also freewheels as is, no need to make any adjustments if the battery were to fail.
  15. When my son was 5 or 6 years old and holed a 7 iron from 40 yds out for an eagle.
  16. I have a motocaddy s1 now, have used a clubrunner and kangaroo brands in the past. The s1 is better in every way than either of my previous carts and can be had for $600. The kangaroo had a remote, but I never found myself more than a few yds from it so I didn't opt for that option this time.
  17. You won't be able to use the the G400 adapter with this driver. The G410 has lie adjustments, the G400 does not. This is really disappointing. Ping has changed their adapter more recently than any of the other major OEMs (Callaway, Titleist, TMAG) and now they are doing it again. Ping has had the same adapter from 2014 until 2019, how long has it been for the other OEMs?
  18. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B015UIPMH2/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o05_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Being use this one with great success.
  19. Just got back from my two rounds on the Ocean Course. The group I was paired up with yesterday changed to a later tee time so I ended up alone. This morning I was again by myself, first off at 8 am and the next tee time wasn't until 9 am. Couldn't believe I had the place to myself. I used my motocaddy for both rounds and had no issues with the sand at all.
  20. I went last year and didn't use a caddie either round. I don't recall any significant amount of loose sand that would make using a push cart difficult, maybe I just got lucky and missed my shots in the right locations :golfer:
  21. TV coverage mentioned his driver was D8, but I didn't catch what the new one is.
  22. Anyone know if I can use my motocaddy instead of carrying my own bag since I'm not using a caddie?
  23. It's probably been 10 years since I was there and able to play, but I played the Creek Course at Moose Run. Teed off around 11pm in mid-July and finished up around 2am. Not many places that can happen.
  24. My point still remains the same. Over the years I've seen countless 'Gifted' transactions go sideways. Why not slap people in the face with the warning as opposed to burying it as a sub-bullet alongside 50 other Rules? Fair enough, but until the OP comes back and confirms we don't know. The first response picked up on the word "gift" and it's blood in the water.
