    Do the rain gloves work well for sweaty hands? I've never tried them for that!

  2. They are aerating the greens again. Just finished Pine Barrens last week. Rolling Oaks will be closed next week Tues-Fri, then low "recovery" rates thru the end of August.

  3. Weather is usually very nice. 70-75 degrees in the daytime on average, and not much rain. Can be breezy at times, depending on which course you're playing. Crowds aren't bad either in my experience. Seems to pick up in March when people go on spring break.

  4. Have used SkyCaddie products for many years, but got fed up with the glitchyness and overall poor performance. Had two Breeze units fail on me, the second after the warranty expired. The SGXw I bought used now performs like a relic... slow and clunky.


    Purchased an S20 last week and it's been terrific in every way. Very quick to find your course and update yardages. My biggest surprise is that it's actually more accurate than my SGX, which was the main reason I had stuck with SkyCaddie for so long.

  5. Greetings. Do you generally use the same measurement specs for your wedges that you use with your iron set? I recently upgraded my standard irons to a set that fits my measurements and swing better (+.5 in. length, 1 degree upright.) I need to purchase a new wedge set soon. In your opinion, should those specs match the irons?


    Thank you...

  6. Greetings. Has anyone experienced a tour van fitting at one of their stores? The one near me in Orlando offers full bag fittings for $99, which seems like a good deal. I have no intention of changing all my clubs right away, but it would be nice to get update specs on newer equipment.


    Thank you...

  7. I have used Sky Caddies for years but have now had two separate BREEZE'S suffer unrecoverable software/firmware failures. It's no longer under warranty and I really don't want to by another Sky Caddie that's going to fail. Could someone recommend a brand that has more reliable software? Considering a Garmin or Bushnell watch at the moment, but I'd be thrilled with something that just works!

    Callaway X2 Hot Pro 4-PW (your choice of Project X 5.0, 5.5 or 6.0 shafts) $300 + FS


    Thanks! I jumped on this. Hit these last year and loved them. $299 for 7 clubs is hard to beat.

  9. I've been fortunate to play three of the better private clubs here in Arkansas. Pinnacle in Rogers hosts the Walmart NWA on the LPGA Tour. Hardscrabble in Fort Smith hosted the Web.com event for many years (Zach Johnson won one year.) I've also played Little Rock Country Club, a very nice older classic course with some views of the Arkansas River and downtown.

    But The Alotian Club is now the premier course in Arkansas, and it isn't even close. I doubt I'll ever be able to play there. It was founded by Warren Stephens, whose family has long had ties to Augusta National. It hosted the Western Amateur last summer. Phil and Tiger have both done exhibitions there, benefiting The First Tee.

    That shaft is true to flex and I know someone swinging 105-110 that loves that exact shaft, same set up as you.

    I have a completely opposite experience. The stock rip nv shaft plays around 2 flexes softer. My stiff was around a senior flex.

    Okay, my experience is [b]also [/b]that it's soft. Maybe that's why it doesn't feel "consistent".

  11. I would think after that amount of time they are probably just good for practicing. Golf balls have a shelf life of about five years, after which the performance deteriorates and you lose distance. Of course, the only way to know for sure is to compare them on the course with a new ball. They may end up working fine for you.
