  1. A couple of years ago we had this "who has the best swing on golfwrx thread", I was in it (not that I have the best swing), monte was in it too. Anyway this guy bursts in there and goes "MONTE! YOU LOOK LIKE A 4 HANDICAP, AND THRILLHOUSE! ARE YOU EVEN A PRO?" Lol it was pretty funny, I'm like damn dude my move is pretty good for a fat kid, and Monte played web.com (or whatever it was called back then)! Fast forward 5 years later and after a few years away from golf I'm literally a 4 handicap right now, and Monte and iteach would both wipe the floor with me, so I guess that's an answer.
  2. I like PXG clubs, and I'm not bothered by the price point or any if that stuff. You're talking about the "you'll meet a better class of people in the fairway" thing? I thought it was tongue in cheek, but if I didn't like the clubs or the brand or took issue with the pricing I might react differently. That being said the commercials are kind of low brow anyway, so I guess it's all par for the course.

    Nice job qualifying!
  4. I don't go back to the old stuff too often, if I'm not using that anymore its because I'm tired of it. What I will do is sell the new misbehaving club quickly if it isn't working out and move on to something else. Sometimes it takes weeks or months, but other times I have used something once, not liked it, and gotten rid of it (3 woods do this the most, dunno why). Seems like you're asking how long you should wait. Thats kind of personal. If you don't switch clubs much maybe you should give them some time so you can get used to them. If you switch clubs all the time and are used to adjustin
  5. Also, many state golf associations host "member for a day" programs at private courses. Massachusetts has a roster of ~20 days where the public can essentially just sign up and play a private course as long as the player is a member in the MGA. Every year they mix up the courses and outside of maybe the top 10 courses in the state they have some real gems in the program I think the bigger issue is that the money for a club isn't as much as we would think. Let's say a good, not great private course opens for play on Mondays. In mass, that means probably 20 days during the season. Let's s
  6. My club does the same thing! The super is actually doing it on purpose, we have quick greens (because that's how the members want it) and the super loves to find the little spots on the green where the ball can easily roll several feet away if it gets more than a foot or two away from the cup in the wrong direction. Im with you Jeff, I would prefer they set the pins based on tournament standards as well. Part of the problem is that a lot of the members actually seem to like it for some reason. I guess if people didn't they'd tell the super to set the pins differently.

  8. Honestly? Meh. I've explained myself with respect to the Tiger DWI thread above. While I do have a tendency to react aggressively when called out on here (that much is true, and yes, I agree I need to work on it), I really don't think anyone believes that I'm the type of person who runs around eviscerating people simply because they post that their family member was killed by a drunk driver. So I'm going to end my back and forth with you here, as I don't think it serves any of us. But like I said, happy to talk to you via PM, and I am listening to your point that I should tone down some
  9. That is a complete lie. That poster accused me of "supporting drunk driving" because I didn't agree that Tiger having trace amounts of THC in his system meant he was intoxicated under it while behind the wheel, and then tried to excuse it by saying that his accusation was ok because he lost a family member to it. At that point I said I wouldn't accept his apology because I too have lost a family member to drunk driving, and found his accusation that I support drunk driving extremely offensive. Honestly where do you get off posting that? Way out of line. Where do I get off posting your own

  11. It had all the makings of a legendary thread. A vanity capper, turning pro, this doogie howser sort of story where this 16 year old kid was running a corporation, yuge money matches at $10 munis, rounds under par from the tips at bethpage, swing videos, and Thrillhouse. I know what you're thinking, "but thrillhouse, did he have a towel clipped to his belt?" sadly the swing videos didn't show enough for us to see. Ah I remember when I first joined this site. I believe my first post was about turning pro. Man some users were ready to rip me for it haha. Little did I know how many threads l
  12. yes you did Jeff.. it was full of cheesy Canadians.... lol ( i kid i kid ) let me be the first to say that the troll got me.... and i appologize to all who i may have offended.... the home story hit home with me personally and i let it cloud my judgement ... i promise to crucify any and all future trolls .... so let it be written, so let it be done !!! I actually never saw your original posts, but I wouldn't have been offended if any of that was directed at me. We've known each other on here long enough that I've seen your posts about your hardships as a kid so as soon as I saw the

  14. Iteach is getting no love in this thread! You guys know he played some mini tour stuff for a while right? He's pretty good he'd hold his own.
  15. Does anyone have an explanation for why UK private clubs allow public play? It's so common there must be a reason (beyond some courses being on public land as stated above).
