  1. Uhh, you can. Use the "Ignore User" function in "My Controls"
  2. haaken- PING is introducing a new fitting system this season. You may want to wait until they roll it out, then go to a demo day where it is being used. In my experience, the PING reps will spend as much time with you is as needed to get the fit just right. http://golfopinions.com/news/2008/01/18/ping-nflight-system/
  3. I used to worship my Ogio Vaporlite because of the club management system ("Woode") and despite the crappy legs. But recently, I'm having massive club tangle problems. I've shined a flashlight down the bag numerous times, but I can't figure out what is causing it. However, I did discover that the dividers are only 3/4 length, which annoyed the hell out of me. I'm thinking of going to the Nike SQ Pro or Pro Combo. I would go with the Callaway Warbird Hot, but I don't like the straps. Arggh! Why can't someone make the perfect bag?!?!
  4. +1 for the obscure, yet completely relevant, literary reference. I bet that's the only albatross he'll be getting for quite some time. (why did I feel like I was channeling Austin Powers while typing that?)
  5. Here's another photo and another couple of Japanese web pages: http://www.golfly.com.tw/upload/forum40/thread19903.html http://www.anserfreak.ne.jp/s-report/2008/ping.html Sorry, I won't go back to my friend for another Japanese translation. He looked at me like I was an idiot when I answered his question "why do you need this?" with "because a bunch of people on a golf internet message board want to know real bad." Too bad because it looks like the second link contains a Ping-Japan press release. EDIT: It looks like Google Translator does a (slightly) better job with
  6. These are drive-on car ferries. (Also passenger, but you will need your car to get to the golf course.) http://www.wsdot.wa.gov/ferries/ Just hope that the weather isn't like this (it won't be): Edit: here is a link to the photographer's site with all the photos of that windstorm: http://www.pbase.com/trackside_photography...n_state_ferries
  7. I'm not sure if it's related directly to the Maya Calendar or not (I believe that ends in 2012). But I'm pretty sure when they get to 0 the world ends. :) :rolleyes: I don't care if no one else thought that was funny. I enjoyed it immensely. :cheesy:
  8. I used to think that PING irons weren't as "pretty" as other companies offerings. Then I hit them, and they got prettier. Later I looked at my friends' non-PING irons after several rounds compared to some 2 year old PINGs, and the PINGs got even prettier.
  9. A guy in my office speaks Japanese. Let me see what I can do. EDIT: Okay, I didn't want to impose too much on my friend, so I just took notes when he told me what the web page said. So this is a "loose" translation:
  10. You can't go wrong at either - Newcastle's China Creek and Coal Creek, or Gold Mountain's Olympic Course and Cascade Course. (But for the one you pick to only play one, make sure if it's Newcastle, then play China Creek; Gold Mountain, play the Olympic Course.) They are different experiences though. Newcastle is a high-end, immaculately manicured, beautiful facilities, and sits on a hill with views of the city. Gold Mountain, on the other hand, is nestled among old growth Pacific Northwest forest with rolling hills. "Lush" is the word that comes to mind. It's a municipal facility, so th
  11. I dont think there is any definitive answer, as they are not available to the public yet. The only way to find out would be to wait until they are released and try them side-by-side with your i5's. I've hit the AP1s (and AP2s) side-by-side with my i5s. I didn't think the AP1s were any more forgiving, and I didn't think they felt as nice as my i5s. Some day the AP2s might pull me away from PING, but the AP1s won't. Of course, it's all a matter of personal opinion and YMMV. Edit to correct typo and for clarity.
  12. I've hit the ZMs, the AP1s and AP2s. The ZMs have a nice feel, but are definitely a player's iron. (Duh). Too much club for me (and the majority of other players I suspect, whether they want to admit it or not). The Z-back isn't as distracting as I thought it would be, however. I didn't care for the AP1s. Although I need a forgiving club, I didn't like the feel or results from the AP1s. Too "clunky" and a hard feel. I'm used to my PING i5s, which have a very soft feel for a cast club. The AP1s don't have that same soft-cast feel as my PINGs. I found the wider soles to be distractin
  13. I have read "The Greatest Game Ever Played", "The Match", and I just started "Grand Slam: Bobby Jones, America, and the Story of Golf". The Match is a much easier read than TGGEP. When I read TGGEP, it felt as though Frost thought that this would be the only book about golf that he would ever write and, for that reason, he had to cram as much historical information into the book as possible. Don't misunderstand me, TGGEP is an excellent book and, in the end, I felt it was much more rewarding than The Match (in all likelihood because of its intricacies and depth.) But whereas The Match is
