  2. [quote name='Jay H' timestamp='1402717271' post='9493065']Startzel and Paipai, have you ever read any materials on how unreliable eyewitness testimony is during criminal trials? Here's the Cliffs Notes version: It's incredibly inaccurate. If your friends are anything like mine, they complain when I win and keep their traps closed while they count my money. As Andy L said, the proof is in the numbers. Unless my casual rounds are statistically higher than my money games, I am not gaining an advantage. Handicapping is formulaic and all that matters is the numbers. As the saying goes, it's not

  5. The difference is 2 strokes to your score... Which is the point of this thread. If 2 out of 3 your ob in practice. You probably shouldn't try it in the moment. Unless it's 18 and you are one back of you're competitor...even then... Maybe it's just the way you play, but it shouldn't change much from a competitive round. In the moment should be casual or competitive rounds. If you know it's probably going ob, and you choose not to play the shot only when you can win money.... Just doesn't seem right to me. Especially if even your own friends are calling you on it.
  6. Sorry, but if you can't pull the shot off in practice, you can't pull the shot off "in the moment".

  10. My parents were divorced in about the fourth grade, so i didnt see him much. Out of the blue when i turned 18, he gave me his old set of golf clubs to get me started! He began taking me out every sunday with his sunday club and it became our time. As we found our lost time together, he also gave me a lifetime love for the sport! Thanks Dad.
  11. Thanks for the input, rbhan. Going to pull the trigger.
  12. So im looking at buying a speeder for my dad for fathers day, but im not quite sure what shaft. i got the 661 and he seemed interested in an upgrade, too. Some stats. carrys at most 140-150, smooth swing, and mid trajectory and not too much roll. he has switched between senior and regular flexes, but i think he needs a senior (R2) flex. Should i go with the R2 flex? or R flex? is 46 grams too light? not sure if lower or higher will help get more distance, either. It almost seems harder to fit an older slower swing than a faster swing. Thanks, Kevin
