  1. Restrictions on LPGA postings here. PGA Tour says that crowds of people need helmets to attend a golf tournament, or at least, cannot have hats thrown to them by pros. I still like the game of golf. [i]A lot.[/i] Can't get enough. All the stuff surrounding it? Less and less. Every day. The media especially.

[quote name='Milez28' timestamp='1421175011' post='10740123'] [url="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VzNKDp0Hu5s"]https://www.youtube....h?v=VzNKDp0Hu5s[/url] looks to me they proved the technology works... they put it on a machine hitting balls on the heel and the toe of the face and it gave the same distance as a center hit. What more do people need to believe it actually works? [/quote] OK, for one, they did not examine what causes 76% of players from hitting the center of the face. Ironically, their own too-long, too-light, shaft non-spine/flo-oriented clubs may in fact be part of that
  3. I have a distinct feeling the most fun thing to watch pertaining to the PGA would be the practice round money games. Anything "official" Tour and televised is too homogenized for our safety, and generally too boring to watch.
  4. Lordy. Hard to come up with anything that wasn't in my bag. Last round of the season, Srixon driver, Ping FW, Titleist hybrid, Ping irons, Cleveland wedges, Odyssey putter.
  5. [quote name='joey3108' timestamp='1421254366' post='10745403'] I wonder what is the designer of the club thinking. Rust city on those cavities for sure and a b!tch to clean. I'm not surprise on Ryan's moved. He has his reputation. Just my 2 pennies! [/quote] I'll give you one penny for those two pennies.
  6. [quote name='Boogaloo_Jones' timestamp='1421256388' post='10745589'] Dont worry I'm closing it down since it hurt your feelings. [/quote] Hopefully it has a "Midol" pocket. Sheesh.
  7. Calm down. Just general golf forum commentary and a personal pet peeve. You're not the first to be certain.
  8. [quote name='Kingcat990' timestamp='1421213901' post='10743781'] I guess what I don't like about Mark Crossfield is that he has made quite a reputation for himself. He's not just some guy doing club reviews out of his basement. He's more so become a brand. I believe because of this, he compliment sandwiches all of his reviews. I wish that someone had the gull to just pick up a club and give a no BS review. Obviously the guy has hit a few thousand golf clubs so he has some great insight for us looking for certain clubs. But never would Mark Crossfield pick up a driver, say Callaway Diablo Octa

It's all in black so that's good, but it was 59 bucks shipped so I had to jump on it. [/quote] They often don't make women's bags as tall due to having shorter club lengths than men's clubs. Did you happen to check? [/quote] Yup, one of the other members bought the same bag and said that the women's
  10. "Golf is suffering." Why does it keep kicking its own @ss, then? GOOOOOOOOOOOO......Lawyers!!! I cancelled cable and haven't seen a golf tourney in eons. I see I am not missing anything. Not a thing. Hooray.
  11. I find that on occasion, I will play a course for the first time very well. I don't really know where the trouble is and the nuanace of the course, so it really gets parsed down to "hit ball, walk" for me when playing a new course. I don't have that nagging 2nd guessing voice in the back of my psyche, "you know there's water over there." So what I guess I'm saying is that by virtue of dumb luck, and a clear mind, I don't do too badly when travelling with my game. Some courses if they have architecture features I'm not used to around the green especially, can be good for some extra short game
  12. I think they should put the static bounce measurements back on their site. Too proprietary in their thinking there. It's nice to compare/contrast brands and their specs.

Their whole message is that this is an "exclusive" brand of equipment. And I haven't seen anything on them other than here, so their non-guerilla reach is very limited thus far. [/quote] From Wiki: The term "guerrilla marketing" is traced to guerrilla
  15. Not a fan. Very repetitive. Insert product __here__. Bit of a mush/motor mouth. Lotta LM #'s. Lotta cherry picking of data to prove points. For those that watch anything with a discerning eye, he probably isn't in your usual rota of programming. "Shaft flex doesn't matter." That hurt my head. I just find him generally annoying. Its mostly the delivery. I just don't see what others are seeing. But what's new?
