  1. In spite of the terrible situation you and your family are in, you DON’T owe anyone an apology! It’s terrible that you even had to make this thread to appease a yahoo who has zero clue as to how simple business transactions work. Must be the same type of guy that thinks “OBO” means “or better offer.” I’m sure I’m beating a dead horse, but I am absolutely baffled how people were so quick to light the pitchforks for this poor dude. Y’all are out of your gord.
  2. Sergio should have put the Riyobi in the bag.
  3. I think I'm going to get the loft and lies checked today. I guess it could be the shaft as well, but my 6 iron swing speed with the s300 was averaging 89-94. I may need to account for user-error as well lol
  4. I'm actually in Little Rock, AR, now and we get a pretty wide range of temps. That's a good point that the shaft could be accounting for the distance loss. The only reason I had discounted that as a reason is because I am hitting the highest balls I have ever hit. I thought with a heavier shaft I would see a lower flight and less spin? Would lie angle play a factor?
  5. So I had been playing some JPX 825 Pros (4-G) for a couple years now and recently decided to trade them in for some Ping e1 (4-P) that were on sale for an absolute steal. I had Dynalite S-300s in the JPX and now have straight up S300s in the e1s. I did my due diligence and brought the JPX into Edwin watts to compare on the launch monitor and everything seemed cool. They seemed slightly more forgiving and I was getting some added height, turning me from a mid-high ball flight player to high. However, on the course, I feel like I am about a club shorter with the new sticks, which has me a bit puzzled since the pings are also a little stronger lofted. I don't know if the decrease can be attributed to cold weather, wind, or too high of a ball flight. My 45 degree PW was typically a 130 club and 6 iron, 185. The last time I played I absolutely smashed a 5 iron that landed like it had a parachute but from 185 out. I just realized I might also be leaving the face slightly open at address to match the degree offset to my JPX. Thoughts? It's getting a little frustrating landing on every damn fringe.
  6. JPX 825 Pros D (10.5) LS: 280 3w (15.5): 245-250 3/4h (21 I think): 230 4i: 215 5i: 205 6i: 185-195 7i: 170 8i: 160 9i: 150 PW: 135 GW: 115-125 54: 100 58: 80 Something in my swing changes with the 54 and 58. These distances are typical among most of my buddies (we all played college baseball). However, one buddy in particular is probably 15 yards longer and hits the ball SKY high. I have an 8 iron swing video in my "tale of three swings" thread. I would give up 20 yards to guarantee I would never sh*** another ball again lol
  7. So I have been swinging a Burner Superfast 2.0 since I started golfing about 4.5 years ago. My index has floated from 9-13 and I would say driving is probably the strongest part of my game. That being said, it is the strongest part because I am fairly long (285 carry) but I can also go absolutely nuclear with my misses sometimes. So with the thought that I could benefit from some new tech I decided on a Ping G30 LS with Tour 65. In the few rounds I've played since buying the club I have definitely felt the forgiveness of the G30, but admittedly the 1.25 adjustment has been rough. I know others have said going down in length helps them find more fairways but it has been up and down for me so far. I totally underestimated how much of an impact 1.25 inches could have. With the Burner I felt as if I had a little extra room to get the face around, with the shorter shaft it seems as if that split second of time isn't there. I am almost positive much of this has to do with adjustments that are needed in my set-up (any advice is appreciated), but I thought this would be an interesting look behind someone who took up golf in the 46+ inch driver heyday and is now trying to make the transition backward.
  8. "Need" is a very relative term. Hahah tell me about it... The only reason I didn't immediately pick it up is because I bought both a G30 LS Driver and a G 3 wood in the two days prior lol
  9. Anyone need a 3 wood with stiff Blueboard? My local Edwin Watts had one
  10. Some really sound advice in here. If you want to know what life would be like when priorities aren't straight go read some of the poor Schmuck comments in the "just a rant...letting off some steam" thread from yesterday. The contrast between these two threads is astounding.
  11. 13! That is a poke! I've definitely cut it too close and nailed the trees on the left lol.
  12. That's awesome! So many good players in the city championship. So I'm guessing he eagled 5, 7, and 16?
  13. I'm in the same boat - happily married. A lot of guys who aren't can blame themselves. Sometimes the writing is on the wall long before marriage, and guys get married anyway or just "give in". Or guys who get married and gain 60 pounds and wonder why their wife is no longer attracted to them. If you're in a good relationship, marriage literally changes nothing. You speak the truth. It's all about having balance. Give some notice before a round, do things around the house, don't be a turd, put a dish away, give a courtesy flush, and reap the benefits. I didn't know the base-rate of happily married people on this site would be so low lol. Before you "happy" guys get too carried away with your patronizing and your pity, consider that some of these comments might be just a little bit tongue-in-cheek for the sake of humor. Just a little. Haha Don't get me wrong I definitely get the humor. I was mostly referring to the first 10 or so posts that reference a need to clear one's inner Qi prior to playing a round and Scrooge sitting on the couch at the family barbecue while his wife serves everyone else potato salad. I don't think there was much that was tongue in cheek about that lol

  15. I've also heard from my course's assistant greenskeeper/hot dog turner/hedge trimmer this is 100% true or false.
