  1. I ran into his father last week at a private C-level technology briefing. His son is being recruited by Stanford for a full-ride golf scholarship and a guaranteed fast-track to wrapping up his undergraduate degree and then entry into both the law school and the business school. Quite an amazing young man.
  2. Interesting. Any science that supports this or is it just your belief? Also, which muscles are the “golf muscles” that you refer to? How do we know that our “golf muscles” are in shape to continue to play scratch golf? And for those that aren’t scratch golfers can they maintain their handicaps by performing a dozen or two swings a day?
  3. Is this a universal claim—i.e., holds true for all scratch golfers under all conditions—or is this something that you think holds true for you? It’s quite an interesting claim.
  4. Those of us with willpower and superior genetics can sympathize with the OP. But very few of us exist.
  5. I’m an old CEO who always—and I mean always!—hits the sweet spot on my 2 iron that I also happen to throw darts with. Flagsticks tremble when I pull my 2 iron out of my bag. But you mere mortals don’t have my superior genetics so I don’t expect you to understand, let alone to be able to wield blades like I do.
  6. Mizuno HMB 4 iron would be a great fit for you.
  7. I have several times using just my 2 iron. I stopped doing this as it was a tad boring.
  8. Get the HMBs. I bet you’ll kill them!
  9. The thread is about Joanne Carter. No need to bring men into it.
  10. You diminish Carter by having to compare her to a man. She can stand on her own.
  11. Quite a first post to make such a wild accusation. Have to wonder about intent.
  12. Best golf story of the year, if not longer.
  13. Club championship. I’m in the finals against a cocky young buck. 10th hole. 475 yard par four. Young buck hits his second shot to two feet with a pin that’s tucked in the rear right corner of a small green. You can tell from the look on his face that he believes he will win the hole despite a poor drive. (Just earlier he was visibly upset that I had outdrove him.) I’m 215 yards out. I pull my 2 iron from my bag. I step to the ball. I discreetly give a minor tip of my hat to the young buck. He smiles tightly in somewhat feigned gratitude. I decide to go flag hunting and I execute a towering shot with my patented baby draw—a risky shot given the pin position—and the ball drops ten feet in front of the hole and rolls into the cup. I won—9 & 8.
  14. You don’t write haiku Your short form smells like poo poo Please save us from pain
  15. It’s polymer. See the Titleist video with Max Homa testing the T200. It’s discussed there.
  16. Because the OP really desires a private club membership, can’t justify it himself, hopes someone here will justify it in a manner that he can then justify to himself?
  17. Sorry to hear you’ve had such bad experiences at The Bear. I haven’t struggled with hole 5. But, hey, we’re just different!
  18. The Bear can be a lot of fun if your game is on. I’ve shot a couple of my best rounds there.
  19. I see the light now. You’ve been victimized. I’m so sorry that this has happened to you. My hope for you is that you find internal peace and that you are brought together with a set of irons that you can wholeheartedly love and cherish.
  20. I’ve made no assumptions about you. Everything I’ve stated is based on what you’ve written. As far as new irons, I never said anything about what might be or might not be on their dime. Read more carefully and you might understand that I excluded new irons regardless of how much they might pay—full cost or wholesale. I left that open so you would find less to quibble with but you misread what I wrote and thus you nonetheless quibbled but in error. Back to what’s central to this thread . . . 1) You performed poor due diligence. 2) You have unreasonable expectations as to appropriate compensation for your perceived damages. On the hand, it’d be entertaining to see you on Judge Judy or a similar show!
  21. Oh, there’s light at the end of the tunnel—the fallout from global warming. Nature will wield its revenge and wipe the human pest from the earth.
