  1. Just received an email from True Linkswear and the title says "It's time to say goodbye". The gist is they're retiring the True knit line of shoes, but in these difficult days with a major health crisis, could that subject title be any more tone deaf?
  2. The range is fun, but personally I wouldn't bother doing it if you're only there one day. Yes, it is a lovely facility and fun to watch the players strip it, but with only 1 day I'd spend all my time soaking up the course and surroundings instead. It could be one's first AND last time there, and I think it better to see as much of the course as possible for the memories. And you never know if you'll be rained out or have lightning warnings, and you'll be pretty disappointed if you spent a lot of time on the range and didn't all of the course. Walk the entire course, and see each hole from
  3. In addition to the prior recommendations: Haar Restaurant - Had one of the best meals of my life here. Not Michelin-starred yet, but it will be. Hams Hame - Good quality pub food. Seafood Ristorante - Really good upscale meals Hotel du Vin & Bistro - Had an excellent steak dinner there, with good wine selection
  4. I've owned Jan Craig, JuJu's, and Rocket Tour. The Rocket Tours aren't in the same league - it's like comparing a Chevy to a Bentley. I think the Jan Craig is just slightly better built than JuJu but they're so close it's hard to tell. JuJu is fantastic to deal with and she makes it easy to do anything you want in the design, and is my first choice.
  5. Bridges should be cheaper. I just played it a few weeks ago and the guest fee was $165.
  6. > @bladehunter said: > Personally. I wouldnt hit a single ball. Hitting into a net with no feedback could turn your swing into anything in 2 weeks. This. You’ll be using strange (and probably not very good) clubs, hitting cheap balls, with zero beneficial feedback. Use the time instead to hit the gym and stretching so you’ll be better ready when you return.
  7. I just visited the new KBS Experience retail store in Carlsbad. Impressive operation, but I don’t know how they’ll sell enough there to cover the rent in that pricey retail location. On a tour they showed me fitting areas and one had club heads for all the popular drivers and FW Woods, along with a whole wall of shafts for woods, so they do definitely have fairway wood solutions even if they’re not shown on the website. I’ve found before their website seems way behind what they’re offering, so I’d suggest just giving them a call. They’ve always been very responsive.
  8. My wife and I love the Ojai Valley Inn. Really good course and other golf options in the Santa Barbara area, outstanding spa, and really great food.
  9. Can we please change the name of the “UK” subforum in “Courses by Region” to say “UK and Ireland”? The Republic of Ireland is NOT part of the U.K., and it’s rather insulting to name the category as if it is.
  10. > @JAMH03 said:> This article is FANTASTIC and you can absolutely get better if you take it to heart. > > While the points Pelz makes in the article are valid, this is an example of where he used bad science to illustrate his point. His premise is that he used Shotlink data on amateurs to identify issues and then offers conclusions based on that data, but in a number of places his data is highly flawed. An example is the following chart where he claims that the ratio of right misses to left misses increases with handicap. But according to his data, the scratch golfer misse
  11. I wish all of you would stop posting photos of your lovely MacKenzie bags. If you keep it up this thread is going to be very expensive for me. Thank you for your consideration.
  12. One thing Pelz influenced was an acceptance of science into the Tour ranks. While there were golf-infatuated engineers and scientists looking for opportunities in the golf industry before Pelz, he seems to be the one that was able to his foot in the door around Tour players. Prior to that, it seems a lot of the accepted beliefs with pros were misperceptions (feel ain’t real) or just flat wrong (like old beliefs of ball flight laws). Pelz seems to one of the first to start changing some pretty stodgy beliefs, and now it seems a pro can’t take a practice swing without a Trackman, video, and an a
  13. I bought a Titleist StaDry 4up for a Scotland trip a few years ago and like it so much that I’ve used it as my daily bag ever since. It’s meant as a carry bag and not a cart bag, but I find it works just fine on a cart too. A couple friends liked it too and bought their own, and my caddie at St Andrew liked it so much he went and ordered one for himself from Auchterlonies after carrying mine for two rounds. The waterproofing works well and does seem to make a difference on keeping things dry, and it has a good rain hood that seems better designed than most. I now have almost 3 years with it an
