  1. Do some of you think that using the cart makes him the favorite to win now or even have a chance at a top 50 finish? A cart isn't going to make the 1836th ranked player in the world a contender.

Give an unbelievable deal, like using a brand spanking new driver for $30 a month, then sending it back after 90 days. As someone said, $90+11 shipping is a great deal, less than a couple rounds of golf. Company initially gets enough cash flow to continue business, while paying payroll, and nice salaries for officers and top employees. > > When things slow down, service suffers, staff is furloughed, and eventually, the business goes bankrupt. > > Let the taxpayer foot the bill. > > Enjoy your new driver, while you can. > > > Thank you Wriggles. You are adding common sense to the thread. > > I think bottom line these guys who like this and are defending it, are people who are not responsible with their finances. They would rather take a risk on a Vampire company such as a Rent to own store, Rent a cell phone, Or other companies. These companies clearly are out for fees, it is as plain as day. ( Look at the TOS, they will send you to collections in a heartbeat! ) And these are the same people who will be raving mad when they are charged them, throw a fit, but in the end they will take the pain because life has kicked them so many times. But it is not life kicking them, it is a series of poor judgements time and time again, > > Do you guys mail order everything too? Are you the guys who fall for all these "box" commercials, like the birch box, the golf clothing box, the shaving box.... yadda yadda yadda. Lol > Cmon people wake up and be financially empowered , you have the power to say NO to these dumb companies. You CAN make large purchases and pay them off. > You want to s*** on this for no reason. It makes me want to try it even more.

The waiver request process in there for a reason. An otherwise competitive golfer shouldn't use every tool at their disposal to play? It's also a potentially legal issue with with ADA rules with access to courses, a la Casey Martin. If he can hit shots, he can play. To me it's very simple. > > > > > > So you would be OK with an NBA player riding and shooting? > > > > That is a terrible comparison. The game of basketball is all about running up and down the court, the fastest. Golf isnt even close to that type of sport. > > Suppose every professional skier was required to climb the mountain by foot prior to skiing down it, and some skier comes along and claims he has a bum knee and gets a free ride up. would that be an advantage? I'd think the bum knee would have them starting at a disadvantage already

  5. > @caloge said: > The problem with this test, and most of what Metal Gear Solid does, is the results are just there. They like to play scientist, but don't know what it means to produce a study and the results of that study. It is sort of strange that they would put all this time into testing and analysis but end up doing half a job. The idea for the test is great. The results are interesting. However, the study is half finished. At this point, they should have sat down and said why are we getting these results that are entirely inconsistent with what we would expect? Why this large gap distance that does not match ballspeed/spin gaps? Are there additional variables that need to be eliminated? Until they can reconcile that with an explanation, the results of the study at that macro level are worthless. Not to say that all data itself is not worthwhile. It is a handy resource for spin and ballspeed #s. It is also interesting to hear about tangible results, such as the Cut balls durability issues. > > Lastly, I will also say that i question the "QC" results. The suggestion that some balls are flying 20 yards off line and this is because of a misaligned core or a ball that isnt perfectly round seems strange. Were these balls cut to examined to determine what was off about them? If only a handful of balls fall into the excellent or very good category of QC, how can any of the numbers produced by the other balls be reliable (spin, ballspeed, anything). If this is the case, Metal Gear Solid should have basically said we tested 33 balls, but 20+ were of such unreliable quality that the results could not be accepted as demonstrative of their expected performance. But that wasnt the case. The actual numbers must have been repeatable or else the data is useless... how is that reconciled? It's almost like they are doing this stuff for views and money

Anyway, you know you have won the argument when your adversary just resorts to name calling. I like how you just skipped over the actual argument made and claimed a "win". This is getting sad

Get this though - all of the $30 payments you have made with your current driver apply toward the retail price of the driver and you just pay the difference when/if you want to buy. Much fairer arrangement than I was expecting (I really didn't think all of your payments would be fully applied to the cost and expected some sort of flat price to buy). > > > > > > > > > > Does the F9 come with cobra connect grip? > > > > > > > > Yes, by default it does.

    They look terrible with all the Odyssey on them. I was really excited for the Las Vegas until they added all that. Killed the brand for me.
