  1. I think the golfers at Turf Valley that have been playing nothing but the Hialeah course since last September would disagree lol. There seem to be a LOT of people in the soft cap zone (Where GHIN suppresses upward cap movement, once you get 3 strokes over your lowest index). But I do get the sentiment. It’s probably true some places, and not others.
  2. Just go buy a 425 Max off the rack. Stock for most clubs seems totally fine in stores.
  3. I've always used pieces made specifically for extensions. But I suspect it doesn't matter when you're talking about a putter.
  4. Electric buggy update. I've named her Fanny, after Nick Faldo's longtime caddy. Fanny has been treating me very well. She carries my clubs wherever I go. She scales hills with ease, and finishes 18 holes with enough charge I suspect I could fire another 18.
  5. I guess the wording on the scorecard is poor, but I think the intention of what they've done is sound. They basically made the long grass a penalty area, defined as a no play zone. That stuff is all marked as environmental preservation area. I'm sure they're handcuffed by that, and have to at least make it written rule that you don't go in there. It's less than ideal in the case you hit one in there, and it could be played. But it also prevents you from basically ever having to take stroke and distance. And it's the same for everybody. Northwest isn't the greatest
  6. Hating on Maple Fun will not be tolerated. That place gave me my first job and opportunity to play golf when I was 14.
  7. They included some accessories with the cart - scorecard holder, device holder, umbrella holder, and the seat. I doubt I'll strap any of those things on the cart, honestly. I'm probably going to sell the seat. I pack so light, and the water bottle pocket on my bag sits the bottle perfectly for easy access.
  8. Coming here to post, since @XHoop24 said he was interested in this. I've been looking at an electric cart on and off ever since trying @dcmidnight's cart at Northwest about 5'ish years ago. I had a bunch of club sale funds sitting in PayPal, and finally decided to pull the trigger on one. I picked up a returned unit MGI Zip X3 from a shop called Kaddymart. It only had 14 miles on it, and came with a brand new battery. It's a simple model (no remote, or follow features), which is exactly what I was looking for. I wanted something I could just walk behind, and nudge when a chang
  9. Speaking of yardage markers, I'm very happy to report that Turf Valley now has TWO 150 yard markers on each hole. There's one on each side of the fairway. Hopefully next year, they'll be able to afford to put a 150 pole in the middle of each fairway as well.
  10. I’ve thought about this every season, since I took @dcmidnight cart for like 2 holes at northwest... 5 years ago. It was so sweet just walking behind it while it propelled itself. It took a long time to take the plunge, but it’s one of those things I can’t imagine regretting.
  11. I connected with Kaddymart as well, for a demo MGI Zip X3 unit. I've been considering an electric buggy on and off for years. I always walk, using my trusty clicgear. I have no trouble pushing, which is why it took me so long to finally pull the trigger on one. It's a total luxury purchase, but I'm really looking forward to it. It'll be great to just stroll behind the cart out there.
  12. Is it still looking like SIM 2 Ti vs. TSi2 for the fairway wood spot?
  13. Fujikura Ventus w/Velocore 6 stiff flex. The shaft has a PING 410/425 series adapter, and measures 44" long. It is not tipped. $250 shipped
