  1. Democracy is all about being able to handle criticism....... Otherwise blind patriotism is not so far away from N. Korea Have you lived outside the US?........ Rory has lived in Europe and the US maybe he has a better perspective..........?
  2. The cage is undone but the beast is asleep.....
  3. Have the 302 and the tour CB...... 302 are very soft compared with the tours but they are still soft, similar looks size wise but I 'feel' like the toours have very slightly more offset....maybe an optical allusion.... Both are fantastic irons.....
  4. Bizarre .......everyone can have an opinion, even you about British politics if you so wish....I bet you have an opinion on N.Koreas politics.....I bet you had opinions when you were 25...... I guess what it comes down to really is that he has a different opinion to yours.....
  5. Personally I think he sucks all the attention out of the game......all we see is Tiger in the parking lot, tigers swing analysed to death etc. Etc. Nobody else gets a look in, wether he is playing well or playing badly... Not his fault, but it's the modern way.......all about viewing figures, sponsorship.....ultimately .....money....... So no I don't think he is 'good for the game'.
  6. Not to me.....maybe it's just that there is a border around the milling making you think it's an insert?
  7. Had a very nice day out at Walton Heath apart from the wind cutting me in half, but so refreshing to see no ropes, walking down the fairways and seeing the act,shots they faced.......curious as to why Walton Heath I chosen as a US open qulaiifier other than it's proximity to Wentworth whose tournament needed on the Sunday.
  8. Personally I don't like slow ugly golf.......and as for 100% concentration required for every shot being how golf should be played......nah not for me thanks. Sure make it penal but allow some chance of recovery, therein lies the artistry to some extent.
  9. Slightly disappointed that the sole isn't blank but everything else is groovy......nice head c over is it magnetic or Velcro? Oh and the grip is not my thing but easliy remedied...... High five Ping

    Tour usage is part of it....history etc.
  13. Rinky Dinks. Rink my Dinks Knuckleballlll How old is Mark..? Too old for that s***. Behind all that larking about is someone not afraid to question convention, someone who actually thinks about his methods and subject matter and comes up with some great thoughts. ....I suspect most Brits are a tad embaressed by his antics but for me he is having fun, which a lot of people don't really have when it comes to golf.
  14. This is a thread about the Ping Anser 1966.........
  15. Anymore rumours out there to keep my interest piqued? I just want Mark Wilson's Anser 2 with a site dot at 340gm.......not too much to ask really is it? In other news my 1966 TR is working fabulously ......
  16. Gold's factory......have to send it to Japan though
  17. Their cLub, their rules, their loss of prestige,revenue,status.......would love to see the membership demographics published........bet at least 75% of them are over 55.......
  18. It's only a matter of time, the old farts will pop their clogs and the younger ones will be embarrassed by their membership rules......plus the drop in income they receive for hosting the open or even from having open rota status will hurt them in the pocket not to mention the drop in prestige they will suffer. This of course could be avoided like Augusta have....just invite a couple of ladies to join who reside a long way from the course and everybody's happy.......
  19. One of the reasons quoted on the BBC website is a 'concern about slow play'.........which I take to mean the members wish to continue playing slowly... Have they not seen how slow the players in the Open are......and they let them play there... Well good riddance to the 'honerable' company of Edinburgh golfers AKA Old Farts.......
  20. I wonder why Ping didn't state that the 1966 Anser was a limited edition, sure would have had people scrambling around trying to buy one or two, even for 'investment' purposes........maybe that was why? Maybe it was also a test of the waters to look at the viability of releasing the eyemark milled ansers?......yes please!
  21. They'll go the way of the 'mock' turtle shirt....... Who wears those these days.....? Just a fad, because long term, they will not continue to look good on anyone.......the ultra scruffy/casual look will swing back to a for,al structured look......this is what fashion does. What amazes me is that so much of the clothing industry targets the youth, traditionally, they prolly spend more per head than older people, but in recent times the old fogeys outnumber the yoofs(sic)....... Why not come up with something different for the older doods?.....kilts anyone?
