  1. Did anyone try the low bounce W in this? I am between that and the C grind. Also want to compare the C grind in md5 to C grind in md4 from address. A buddy picked up a MD4 C a few months back and I have loved the shape and feel since. I would order that but they are no longer available so I am looking for the low bounce W or C comparisons in the MD5. Any help would be appreciated.
  2. Ive played CC of Asheville and Providence (pre renno). Both were very enjoyable and wouldnt hesitate to go back to either.
  3. My button fell off on my UA shorts last night in the wash so time to upgrade (had about 3 years already)...I used the DSG $20 off $100 when you sign up for text alerts and got a pair of ISO-Cool (on sale for $56) and the a pair of showdowns (on sale for $48) for $90 shipped so if you are still looking that is my recommendation on the way to go.
  4. Mine ended up coming a day later than originally planned. Tracking was odd because after I got my message about covid the tracking showed that it was going back to the sender via the same 2 hubs but ended up turning back around and showing up the next day as mentioned...I understand the delays and am not complaining just an odd sequence of events...
  5. UPS is not immune to this either. I had a package shipped from a seller in Ohio yesterday with an estimated arrival date of tomorrow and I checked tracking today and got the following message: "Due to global health events beyond our control, your package is being held for delivery at a later date" The guy also shipped out two other packages same date and mine is the only one showing this message so it may be hub by hub. For reference mine is stuck 100 miles away in Greensboro, NC...I have two other packages that are coming tomorrow one UPS and one Fed Ex and tracking for those two appear no

  9. looking more of an all inclusive deal: medical, cancellation, flight issues, etc...
  10. Does anyone have any recommendations for an insurance company for an upcoming trip to Scotland. Looking now and most seem to be in the $500 range for a 31 year old and $750ish for 55-60 year old.
  11. I just booked for May 2020: CLT>GLA then return EDI>CLT (layover LHR each way). I used google flights to book through American Airlines. I paid roughly $100 extra for bulkhead seats to LHR and from LHR and my total was $1275ish. I tried to book through AA directly and the same flights were roughly $1900ish without the upgraded seats. If you are booking for multiple people (1 ticket at a time, I had to help some older folks book) on the same computer then clear your history/cookies in between bookings or else the price will shoot up.
  12. Thanks for the replies, all the comments have put me at ease...
  13. I can in no way comment on how it performs but i was expecting a little more for the money. As long as it keeps me dry I guess it is doing its job. In regard to shipping I ordered mine late Monday (live in NC) and it got here today a little after lunch so they do ship very quickly. I have not pulled the pants out yet, just went home and put it inside since I am going straight to the course after work and had to take a peak. Maybe after i give it a more in depth study i will revise my initial thoughts. At first glance i wasnt blown away, but who knows, maybe i had unrealistic expectations
  14. I ended up ordering the proquip PX6 suit..Just arrived today and I am feeling a little underwhelmed. It seems to be ultra light and thin. I would love a little reassurance from those of you that use proquip...On the upside it is light and packable but it just doesnt seem to be as heavy duty as my FJ jacket. Also can anyone chime in to add whether or not this provides any additional warmth or is it just intended to keep whats under it dry?
  15. If I am looking at a proquip rain suit, I assume I am not going to find it any cheaper than their 35% off sale they have going right now? Total comes to $273 for the jacket and $201 for the pants.
  16. To anyone that has recently ordered shield tips do you think they still hold true to the icon sizing? I am about to order a pair but am a little concerned because when I got the limited edition dry joys earlier this year they seem to run a hair bit smaller than what I am accustom to. For reference i have worn size 11 in dryjoys, icons, and dnas for the last 7-8 years with no fit issues. The last pair of icons I had were pre "icon black" so please let me know if there is any sizing difference there. Thanks,
  17. Thanks for all the replies. I figured I have enough time now (going in May) to add a lower bounced wedge and get adjusted to it. I am already working on flighted shots and have committed pretty much all year to keep the ball low around the greens in preparation. I am playing Turnberry, Troon, Murifield, Carnoustie and TOC. May try to sneak in Prestwick the day we land.
  18. Current set up: 50* SS 54* bent to 55* SS 60* WS with Ping WRX Grind
  19. Heading over to Scotland in a few months and worry that I will struggle with my WS Glide 2.0 due to the bounce. Has anyone gone to a lower bounce wedge specifically for a trip (or different course conditions) and if so what did you use coming from a high bounce wedge?
  20. Thanks for the reply. I called yesterday and Patriots was $78, National was $78 and Dunes West was $58. Downside to Dunes west is they are converting the greens to Paspalum in mid Aug so they obviously wont be great...Probably going to go with National or a 2nd round at the Harbor Course.
  21. Do you have any recommendations for a group of 12 in the $50-$60. We will be going down the weekend after labor day. Already have the Harbor Course booked at Wild Dunes. I played Rivertowne last year in February and as you mentioned the fairways were absolutely terrible. Also im not 100% familiar on driving distances, we have a house in Isle of Palms and looking to keep the drive 20 mins or less (if thats doable) each way. Thanks in advance.
  22. On the off chance you are looking for casual shorts the vineyard vines breaker shorts with the 7" inseam are great and my personal choice. If you are looking for golf shorts I got nothing...The struggle is real trying to find something at a reasonable length...
