  1. I've always liked "The Liberaces" for a two man golf team, especially if it's a scramble, because you're always trying to get it inside your partner.
  2. I completely agree that it's easier to lose weight through diet than exercise but don't cut out the fat! A high fat diet can lead to a more metabolically versatile body that stays satiated longer. In fact, the most weight I have ever lost, about 20% of my body weight, was by eating foods with more fat than carbs (e.g. olives, avocados, sardines, mackerel, sardines, macadamia nuts, ghee, goat cheese, red meat). Don't worry about counting total carbs or trying to get into ketosis. I know it sounds backwards but a fat adapted diet will help get rid of the white adipose tissue that can cause the visceral fat around the organs (pot belly). Oleic Acid in the fat will actually help you burn fat. The fat won't blow up your blood glucose and cause insulin resistance either. Eat things high in Omega 3s, MCTs, MUFAs, and foods with a long chain fatty acid profile. Stay balanced and diversified when consuming fats because you can have too much of a good thing if you focus on one fat in particular. Your body won't store the fats in the same way that it does with protein and carbohydrates. I also highly recommend intermittent fasting if someone is trying to lose weight.
  3. Not trying to make a statement, honestly curious, but what reason would someone buy the GC Quad over the GC3 now and is the Quad really worth the additional money?
  4. I'm in the same boat. Been battling the yips for over a decade, originally caused by a hand injury when I didn't rehab properly and started playing too soon. I developed a nasty, narrow downswing with too much lag from pulling the handle. The yips come and go. As bad as my swing flaws are, it's playable. The out of play swings are mostly mental. Best way I can describe it is like walking through a haunted house. Turn the first couple of corners and there's nothing there. Turn the next corner and it's the got daym boogyman. The worst issue is that confidence plays a big part of the yips so drivers are like milk, once they expire, they're no good anymore and you have to buy a new gallon. Ultimately I have to keep working on my swing flaws to a point where I have the confidence that I won't hit the OB one Kenobi shot. That and change drivers regularly.
  5. Yikes! They should probably come with iron covers.
  6. If they're in trouble, there are definitely some ways they could save some money. For example, they shouldn't waste money on forging their irons 5 times, just forge it right the first time. Like refried beans, fry them right the first time so you don't have to waste time doing it again.
  7. Standing too close to the ball after they hit it.
  8. I heard that in the near future after they get the factory back up and running, there's going to be a cargo ship sink in the pacific with their entire stock on board thus causing further delays.
  9. That's a good comparison. It's like asking what is the fastest and heaviest car. Tesla Plaid is the only answer.

  11. A journeyman PGA Tour player is doing wayyyyyyyy better than a typical olympic athlete may friend, it's not even close. He won't have to sell his gold medal to cut his grass, hahaha.
  12. It would be really cool if Tiger could qualify for 2024 and win gold. Just think how many gold medals that guy might have if golf had returned to being an Olympic sport by the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta.
  13. Give me Olympic Gold. You can wear that thing anywhere in the world and people will know what it is. A journeyman is a nobody that will be forgotten in time. I would rather be remembered forever rather than have money and exemptions, but that's just me.
  14. I play with an older gentleman that is a +1 or +2 and he hits everything 1/2 ball towards the toe. He has a dime sized wear spot on his irons almost at the end of the grooves. One of the best ball strikers I know, and he never hits the sweet spot.
  15. You're absolutely right about all of this. Do you think it's this way because the people at the companies want it to be this way or do you think it's because they can't do it like the old days when the supply chain was local, social media and forums leaks didn't exist, and they didn't have a ton of pressure from investors for ROI on sunk costs as soon as possible?
  16. Sorry to hear about your experience. There are other golf companies that share a very similar company theme when it comes customer service. This next comment has nothing to do with PXG directly, just adding empathy to the OP's struggle in general. Some of the best products in the world come from companies with a "we will tell the customer what is right and what is wrong" attitude. It's like what Henry Ford said long ago, and I'm paraphrasing, if he listened to customers he would have built faster horses. Those types of companies don't do market research and they don't want customer feedback. The way they see it, it's a privilege to be able to buy their product.
  17. It's really new steel, like a Spring Chicken. Only been out for a few months.
  18. I realize this thread is mainly concerned with the ball but if my memory serves me correct, Titleist has had more non-contracted equipment in different bags of the most recent major winners, which is way more impressive to me than the equipment that a player gets paid to play. It's like saying, "hey, if I wasn't getting paid, this is the best equipment I could play that's going to give me the most likely chance to win." Here's the list I can think of for OEM companies in the bag of the last 12 months worth of major winners outside of an equipment contract. 2021 Open Championship Winner Non-contract Titleist Wedge 2021 US Open Winner (all contract equipment) 2021 PGA Championship Winner Non-contract Taylormade Driver 2021 Masters Winner Non-contract Titleist Wedge 2020 Masters Winner (all contract equipment) 2020 US Open Winner Non-contract SIK Putter, Artisan Wedge 2020 PGA Championship Winner Non-contract Titleist Wedge Obviously all of the winners have played the ball they are getting paid to play. Titleist has always been about strength of numbers for the ball rather than the playing level of each individual player. In their eyes, no golfer is above the brand (see Tiger Woods for example), so it's not surprising to see Titleist lead the ball count but lose the tournament. That's the way the white coats roll.
  19. Truer words have never been spoken. Once it's time for a cosmetic surgery, just trade-in and get a younger set of irons.
  20. It looks like the ball and club data features are free. The premium app service is what requires a paid subscription. See attachment, maybe I'm reading it wrong. Garmin R10 Features.pdf
  21. That's right. I'm just waiting on the day that Trackman adds camera hardware equipment on the side to supplement the radar from behind or Foresight adds radar equipment from behind to supplement the GC Quad on the side.
  22. They usually go on sale the Fall before last two numbers in the model line. For example, the 921s went on sale in Fall of 2020. I guess we will see the 225s at retail in Fall of 2024, which seems about right considering the supply chain at the moment.
  23. Biggest scam in golf is the Hammer driver... there, I said it.
