  1. The minute these hit MyJoy, I will be throwing down my credit card!
  2. I love the look but they are brand new and already full of creasing. Interested to see what they look like after 6 months.
  3. Just watched Faxon do a 3:30 review on Instagram. He said he started testing them in the fall and then spent the next 3 minutes raving about the new box and the arrow. If that is the most exciting part, looks like I will stock up on last-gen balls.
  4. I wonder if the UK is on edge about requesting cigarettes on the golf course now?
  5. Why is an apology for saying something under your breath @ YOURSELF no longer good enough? It now requires a press conference, front page news around the world, charitable donations, probation, and must get a rainbow tattoo? Give me a break! Actually I think there has been a lot of good already come from this. Unlike a lot of people, he was a man, owned it and apologized. Teach your kids that it is OK to make mistakes as long as you own it and learn from it. That is all anyone needs to hear! Move forward.
  6. Well, whatever your description of "average" or "skinny-fat" means, he's earned $40M on the course (not including endorsements) with it. My guess is that is slightly more than you have earned. He'll be fine.
  7. Apparently being in shape and not having a gut hanging out is considered shapeless and therefore, does not move clothing? I guess Tim Herron and Laura Davies must be printing money for their clothing sponsors.
  8. Somewhere in Jupiter, there was a giant RL bond fire over the weekend. No chance you see a horse on him the rest of his career. If I were him, I wouldn't want any part of RL now or in the future. He gets enough screen time and is likeable enough (minus is college affiliation as I am an Auburn Tiger ) that he will have plenty of options. I hope he tears it up this year and somewhere at RL headquarters, there is an accountant keeping track of how financially stupid of a move it was for them to release him. Not only the loss of screen time but overall sales declines. My days of buy
  9. Im 6'9" and play +2" and 5* upright. Most Ping clubs have weights in them that allow them to adjust swing weights at the factory. I have never had an issue getting them straight from Ping. If you already have clubs, you can send them in for adjustment if needed.
  10. I wish they would retail the Jumbo Deep Etched grips they make for Bettinardi but without the Betti logo. I love those grips but they look odd on non-Betti putters.
  11. They said on the telecast that he had this built as a training putter a while back. Not sure what they were working on. He just decided to go with it this week in a tournament.
  12. I have the Ultimate Garment Bag and the Traveler. Both bags are phenomenal. I use them for flying a lot and have nothing but awesome things to say.
  13. I am lost without my rangefinder for several reasons. I am confident in the number so I am not second-guessing front pin vs back pin. For me, this speeds up my round I shoot more objects that are not the flag than I do the actual flag in a normal round. Whether it is bunkers and water hazards for carry, lay up yardages, or stuff like trees to carry a corner. I have slope enabled which takes a lot of the guess work out of the shot. I use mine on the driving range a lot. Whether shooting actual flags or an area to work on specific yardage shots.
  14. I ordered mine on Oct 30 and was told they were being built today. Nothing like timing a golf club shipment with Black Friday. My guess is that there is little chance I see them before the end of next week which sucks considered I traded my old irons in for them. Withdrawals are strong right now!
  15. How can he call a 14* fairway wood a 5W? I know in the world of jacked lofts, the club number is pretty fluid but I have not heard something that drastic making its way into woods lingo.
  16. Does anyone have a simple answer to how players get into tournaments without status, Monday qualifier, or sponsors exemption? For example, there are several players like Hunter Mahan. He has made $1.2M total since 2016 with no victories and (1) top 10. He is playing in his 4th event of the 2021 season. I have always liked Hunter so I'm not criticizing him. I am just curious how all of that is calculated.
  17. I realize that COVID has thrown a wrench in a lot of businesses but at the end of the day, as long as they paint themselves as a premium brand and charge a premium price, we should all expect a premium product. COVID could be a reason for longer lead times but should never be an excuse for shoddy quality.
  18. Live and learn. Wasn't one of my smartest moves for sure. Im just hoping they hold up there end on the timing.
  19. Ordered mine on Oct 30 and they are saying 3-4 weeks. That basically puts it in the middle of Black Friday shipments so who knows when they show up. My optimism is not very high based on what I am hearing from others. I traded my other irons in for them so I am having withdrawls waiting for them to get here.
  20. Interesting to see the sole and sole plate being ground down
  21. So I decided to bite the bullet and get a Circa 62 refinished and customized. I have always loved the simplicity of the No 1 design and I prefer a lot of toe hand. I was able to find one on eBay that was in mint condition and started the process. I was never a fan of the darker finish so went with a Matte Nickel. The logo was added, face re-milled, and paint fill added. I'm sure there are some Auburn haters that will beg to differ but I think she is pretty perfect! I had it done by Kickstand Putters and cannot say enough about how great of experience it was working with him.
  22. Hot Metals are cast, not forged. That is why they are less than the completely forged models.
  23. I went from the C130 (used for 4 years) to the Ogio Convoy. It has the full length dividers, plenty of space, and is overall an awesome bag. Like the C130, it has a single strap vs a double strap but I always use a push cart so carrying is not an issue. I got a great deal on eBay for it.
