  1. Check out Ping Tyne 4, Odyssey 7s, Two Ball 10s, or the Spider X slant neck.
  2. Are you asking about shoes or the actual spikes?
  3. I fix about 3 or 4 ball marks on every green by whacking them with my putter. Works well if the greens are soft enough. I'll pull out the tool if whacking is insufficient.
  4. If you still have a referral code, please message it to me. Thanks
  5. Srixon tri-speed tour. Great ball for me. Last year was Z-star, Tour B RX, and Chrome Soft. They're fine. My game does better with a less spiny ball. No problem holding the greens I play with Surlyn and I don't play high spin shots around the green. After 40 years of trying, I've given up trying to hit the spinny chip shot. As Phil says, it's sexy but high risk. Have a few doz TM Tour Preferred that I use in scrambles because I hate them and don't bother looking for wayward shots too hard.
  6. You're using old rule thinking. They changed the definition of holed when they changed the rule to allow the flagstick to remain in the hole.
  7. Gotta go with a mix and match set. The older the better.
  8. People are just too strange about golf rules to have a one size fits all policy. If I'm playing with someone new and they are uncertain I'll guide them what people do and then tell them what the actual rule is. They are often surprised that so many don't play by the rules. Some folks want to learn the rules, some think they know them, and some just don't care about the rules. I got paired up randomly with the club champion at the local muni. I hit my drive on the 10th hole near the OB line. He looked incredulous that I started walking and didn't hit a provisional. He asked what I was going to do if my ball was OB. Told him I'd just drop and play on. He grumbled about that. Then when we got to the green, he asked if my ball was in bounds. Yup, by about a foot. Maybe he was playing some imaginary match against me in his head that I wasn't aware of.
  9. At a certain point, the club is optimized and it's up to the player to swing it consistently. SS of 110 mph and spin at 2300 rpm is great. Really great. It's up to you now.
  10. Rickie is 24th on the all time PGA money winners with $40M. I think he wakes up every morning without much frustrations.
  11. Seems like yall are conflating what it is with what it should/could be.
  12. My foursome let two singles play through today. Then they each played through the slowpoke foursome in front of us. I asked them if they'd like to play through. It was surprisingly undramatic. If I'm out as a single, I'll usually wait on the tee until the group ahead gets to or off the green so that I can play the hole without delays. However, if there is someone behind me, I will tee off when it's clear to do so.
  13. I played with a Tour trainer who is friend's with a friend of mine but we didn't discuss his compensation. I was more interested in who's cool and who's not on Tour. But he didn't seem like he was hurting.
  14. I love my forgiving irons. I don't hit middle every time I almost always get the club head back to square more or less. I'm the perfect player for Ping G irons. I don't see any downside to them. I've given up playing fancy high, low, draws, or fades. Playing 18 holes once a week they do what I need them to do.
