  1. When it ceases to be an effective sales tool it will stop, until then, it's just a burden our eyes will have to deal with.
  2. I think it's stupid but I am guessing they priced them outrageously because they can't get them and it's some kind of silly strategy to get folks to order either the winn grips or the stock grips. Has anybody called and asked them about it?
  3. I passed that class..... everyday on my way to get to the cafeteria early. I did this because I knew the demand for pizza slices was going to be outweighed by the supply provided by food services.
  4. I don't think it's rocket science... I think that the demand for golf product the last few years has been on the rise and gluttonous major manufacturer's have jacked many of their sticks prices to take advantage of this. Most corporations are about profit... period... end of story.
  5. This is a great question. OP, when you say you cannot hit a 3 wood, exactly what do you mean? I would ignore the equipment cannons until you understand exactly what you are struggling with.
  6. Honestly you could just call the USGA as Sui indicated but I believe antip has already answered your question. Let's look at 10.1b (the relevant parts I will reference can be seen below in full context of the rule) The first part provides an exception to anchoring by indicating that the player must not anchor the club.... "(except that the player may hold the club or a gripping hand against a hand or forearm)" It is important to understand that the exception is allowing you to "hold" the club against any part the forearm The second part very clearly states that "For the purposes of this Rule, “forearm” means the part of the arm below the elbow joint and includes the wrist." Therefore "holding" the club against the upper part of the arm would not be allowed regardless of any reference as to where you feel you are actually anchoring it. To be honest because of the exception, I don't really think that holding the club against the forearm should even be thought of as anchoring, but that is another discussion all together. Rule 10.1b - b. Anchoring the Club In making a stroke, the player must not anchor the club, either: Directly, by holding the club or a gripping hand against any part of the body (except that the player may hold the club or a gripping hand against a hand or forearm), or *(referenced part 1) Indirectly, through use of an “anchor point,” by holding a forearm against any part of the body to use a gripping hand as a stable point around which the other hand may swing the club. If the player’s club, gripping hand or forearm merely touches his or her body or clothing during the stroke, without being held against the body, there is no breach of this Rule. For the purposes of this Rule, “forearm” means the part of the arm below the elbow joint and includes the wrist. *(referenced part 2)
  7. If a hole opens up between us and the next group... I will just ask them if they mind if I play ahead to fill the gap and if they can catch up later fine, we'll regroup.
  8. Face book market place, cash sale and local pick up only is the way I have been selling my used clubs recently. It's far less hassle, no fees paid to anyone and no shipping debacles.
  9. Still sounds like too much work... I think gimme's off the tee is the way to go.
  10. Callaway drivers are pretty solid offerings usually, so I am sure this one will be also. Personally though I'm not digging the amount of bulge and roll and general face shape I see and I do wish they would dump the orange accents and head cover colors already.
  11. You can take your pick of online or national retailers from my experience as DD's has never offered me anything other other than to cover shipping. As far as where I have received the best deals, it's from a local non-national seller.
