  1. Man that's horrible. I run a golf course and I have to deal with people like you all the time. You want to save $100 and use somebody else for the service you can't get online. If you can afford to play 40 rounds in a few months then pay a person who works hard , gives you customer service and is not just dropping some stuff off at UPS for you.
  2. Put Biloxi on your map also. Fallen Oak is one of the best in the country, Shell Landing and Grand Bear are fantastic as well. The whole gulf coast is littered with good tracks. RTJ trail is good but they get boring after a while, kinda all look the same to me.
  3. Lasers are always correct , no uploading, no battery issues, more versatile, you can look at girls butts and boobs from a hole away through it, see a ball on a green from 300yds away, pick out specific carry distances, I take mine hunting with me and range deer with it before I vaporize their internal organs, and I bet other people have done even more useful things.

[/quote] You can bend it about 4-5 degrees if you wanted to. It won't break. It will changed the dynamics of the sole though.
  5. Softer and higher launch than DG's. I think they are more comparable to a KBS although I've never played a KBS shaft. I have some 950's though.
  6. My family operates a daily fee course and we are in the process of taking over another right now. It's interesting to see the comments and thoughts of what average golfers with no connection to the golf business think about how a golf course should be run I've been in the business my whole life, my dad was a super at country clubs in the South before we ended up in Management and I have seen it all from private to low end daily fee and all in between. I'm going to list what we try to accomplish for our players and then what I would do if I could make any rules and still stay in business. 1.

I put with a Kombi most of the time. I had a Yes Emma and like the look of the head but every Yes mid or long putter I've had in my hands was much too light as if they stick a long shaft in the standard length head. [/quote] Thanks for the heads up on Yes. Do you know what the head weight was on the Emma? [/quote] I never had it off the shaft so I can't really say. I like heavy, heavy putters and
  8. Were they originally steel shafted ? Either not countersunk properly or too much heat when pulled would be my guess.

[/quote] MY DAD WAS CHARLEY PENNA. HE WORKEDFOR TOMMY ARMOUR FOR SEVENTEEN YEARS BEFORE HE BECAME PRO AT BEVERLY CC IN CHICAGO FOR THIRTY NINE YEARS. HE WAS A FRIEND OF NELSON, HOGAN AND SNEAD. TONEY WAS MY UNCLE. MY DAD RUINED MY GOLF SWING BECAUSE HE DIDN'T WANT ME TO BE A GOLF BUM. I STARTED TO CADDY AT AGE EIGHT. CHARLEY PENNA [/quote] Great story and picture. I knew there were several
  11. Vacation and Bad Santa in the modern era. Emmet Otters Jug Band Christmas from when I was a kid. Probably watch it on Netflix tonight again.

Just curious because in my Titleist book there is no upcharge for X100's that I can find. Maybe you haven't seen as much as you think you have? [/quote] They are the "Tour Issue" X100 shafts with the silkscreen logo. Those are $25? more I think per club. [/quote] Why waste money on those when the heads aren't weight sorted?? Jeez . Next topic pleaase

The irons won't work without it. [/quote] The hard part will be finding some tour issue grip tape solvent.
