  1. Probably exceeds the weight limit lol... I have the 500, and it's large. I went with a Scoshe Magnetic Mount and it seems to work ok, but I'm always leery of it going flying if I hit a good bump in the cart. My fav was the old Callaway Upro - small and color photo's instead of cartoony pics, but it was abandoned by Callaway. :(. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00R2K4LCY/
  2. And does not become the next Pernilla Lindberg... which sounds mean, but really isn't meant to be.
  3. The announcing was pretty bad imo as well - both the male and female primary announcers were super annoying, at least to me. The woman sound like she was on the verge of having a heart attack every sentence. And as mentioned the mail just tried to hard to be "pithy" lol. But at least we got coverage so I hesitate to complain too much. I disagree on the early coverage, I actually like seeing some different girls/women getting some air. We get enough of the same 10 or so ladies on the weekends so I enjoyed seeing some fresh faces. Was a bit unexpected to see the leaders back up and bring several others back into it, pretty exciting. Good for SNAP to get a win again. Would have loved to have seen Kang get in that playoff too!
  4. So faux major Evian packed it in for 2020... Just another reason the LPGA should have never caved and given this tournament major status...
  5. Good to see some turnover, hopefully it holds up. Watched the '10 USWO today and Paula's win got me thinking about SC Captains... We have way too many ladies avail for upcoming Captain's sports. To many, in fact, so some are going to be left out. Juli as Captain 3 times made this dilemma even worse. There's the obvious players viable for upcoming SC's after '21 and Pat Hurst... Christie Kerr - would kinda be the "old guard" for lack of a better word transitioning to more recent (recent being relative I suppose) SC players like Paula Creamer, Morgan Pressel, Angela Stanford, Stacey Lewis, - that's 10 years (after 2021) right there. Then younger but still likely obvious upcoming choices include Brittany Lincicome, Lizette Salas, Lexi Thompson, Michelle Wie, so we are out to 18 years. Leaving out some other that might get consideration - One that jumps out is Wendy Ward. While not playing in a bunch of SC's (3 cups, but 0-7 in her last two) like most of the above ladies, she has been a Asst. Captain many times, which in the past was an indicator for upcoming Capt. assignment, buy I don't think that will hold true here. Due to the depth of longer active SC players, I can't see her be tagged as Caption and her timetable is winding up. IF it happens, you would think it would have to be '23, and would probably required Kerr not wanting it that year as well. Other players that are younger or have less appearances that the main list above, but can improve (or degrade) their chances over the next 5-10 years... Gerina Piller, Danielle Kang, the Korda Sisters, etc. And the wildcard - Brittany Lang. Often overlooked, and really belongs in the first list above, but not as prevalent/recognizable as some of the more fan favorite types. But she played on a ton of SC's and is a US Women's Open winner - so I suspect she will be slotted in as Captain as some point. Now... all that being said... And this is from a SC Fanboy... the SC is rapidly becoming the "Bronze Medal Game" of sorts... When the teams are having to pull players in the 80's and higher on the Rolex Ranking, you're obviously not putting the worlds premier players in the mix. Which is a whole 'nother discussion I won't even begin to get into.
  6. Maybe I over priced them since I got 716/714 mixed up? How about $399 for 4-GW plus the TVD...
  7. Nice set of 714 AP2's 4-GW with upgraded NS Pro Modus3 Tour 105 Stiff Flex Shaft. Standard L/L/L, GP NDMC Plus 4 Black/Grey grips. Clubs are in 8/10 condition, with minor bag chatter with typical wear for a couple seasons. No major dings or gouges or uglies. Also includes TVD 56M Sand Wedge 7.5/10 Dyn Gold Shaft with moderate sole wear but plenty of life left. How about $450 Paypal or USPS MO preferred... Not looking for any trades.

" “You’re trying to take souls, you know,” Kang said with a smile. “You’re going there to make people cry at this point, just crush the other team." > I don't really call that trash talking, but to each his own. I imagine the Euro's feel the same way, suck the life out of the opponent and leave them out there crying and flustered. Fair point - it's pretty much inline with Kang's personality really, which is one of the reasons I like her. Maybe a "soft" trash talk lol. Media probably made too much of it. Bronte Law is about to go postal I think... two lipouts in two holes.
  9. Wow 10 hours is a lot of coverage... My DVR actually puked with about 2 hours to go so I missed the late dramatics - I don' think it likes that long of a single recording. I'm going to split up Sat/Sun. Not that I can watch all of it, but I'll have it on, FF here and there, and try to keep up for the most part. Shame about Snap...err Stacy. But really, this echo's an earlier post - she should not have accepted knowing her health issues. Also makes you wonder who Juli would have picked if Stacey said no from the git-go - McDonald, or another Veteran? Anyway, I guess it's possible she wasn't aware, but really, how often does one have back issues completely out of the blue. I don't wan't to pick on her too hard, she's had a long road with her back going way back of course so don't want this to sound like bashing, but just doesn't seem proper to have accepted the spot imo. Actually, I got a chuckle they were interviewing McDonald after the morning groups teed of and she was saying how Stacy had been giving her advise on how to play Foresomes... Stacy with the 2-6 record in Foresomes lol. Hopefully no one asks her advise re Singles (0-3-1). :). Kang appears to have gotten a lesson in not running your mouth... unfortunate, but probably the correct outcome. I've never understood trash-talking in any sport. You got to figure if Suzanne wins one match, she wanted it to be that one. Slow play complaints are real... glad to see them. It's ridiculous how long pros take to play these days. Afternoon looked to be a beat down except for those last hole putts... US was teetering all afternoon it seemed other than Yin/McDonald. US needs to tighten up tomorrow for sure. I might have missed it, but have they said anything about Kerr not being there as an Asst.? I've said this before, it's the perfect opportunity for her - she is all but the de-facto choice for the next captain, whether she wants to believe it or not. Maybe she thinks she will be playing again in 2 years... and she might well be, although I would consider that a long shot. But still curious if she was or was not asked, and if asked did she turned it down? Seems silly for her not to be involved imo. Also one could consider Dottie Pepper for future captaincy - but she's been a bit on the outside since the 2007 comments, even though Meg Mallon offered the olive branch at the 13's SC - but nothing since Juli took over. Could be Dottie decided she's happy with here current life and doesn't want it, though. After Juli (assuming this is her last, and I think it should be - win or lose - actually I think two was enough, but we are past that so no point in hashing that out again lol ), and then Kerr, there's a stack of ladies who would be logical choices over the next few cups... Creamer, Stanford, Lewis, Pressel, Lincicome, Salas, Lang all cup stalwarts and practical choices - someone's going to get left out - there are only so many slots. Then others who may increase their SC creds or approach the typical age over those next few cups - Wie, Thompson, Piller, Yin, etc. Then there's Wendy Ward, only 3 cups in the early 2000's, ie a while back - but seems to perennially be an asst. Maybe she's on a short list somewhere as well. Edited, as I somehow left Lewis off the list of SC Captain choices for the upcoming years doh!
  10. Leupold electronics based items warranty is horrible, 2 years as already stated, has been for some time. Gold Ring Optics (and possibly other models) does have lifetime, so some just confuse it and assume all Leupold is lifetime, which is incorrect. Every once in a while someone will post they got Leupold rangefinder replaced for free, but it's certainly not the norm. Other companies (Bushnell, Nikon, etc) are similar. AFAIK, Vortex is the only company that honors a lifetime warranty on a electronic part, ie a rangefinder. But I don't think they offer a golf model (although I suspect the Impact 850 would work fine for golf). I actually just chose a Vortex 1800 rangefinder over a Leupold for hunting, specifically due to the warranty.
  11. I'm disappointed in both pics, really. Both players not in form, both MC's at the Canadian event, Pressel had a good BO but otherwise as already stated very streaky and can leave a partner solo very easily. Plus so short she can be a handicap in Foursomes, imo. I've made my thoughts known already - let these vets be asst. capt's as they need that experience as well - both as well as Creamer and Kerr (especially Kerr, she has to be the odds on favorite for next Capt.) - all four will be captains at some point. Stack up the rookies - they need to start rolling over the players and get these younger girls some SC experience. Even if it costs the cup one year, it will make the US team stronger in the years ahead. But, it could wind up like Paula last year, Stacy and Morgan might light it up and make me (and a lot of us) look foolish ;). Or it could be the decision that get's Juli her first loss as a captain.
  12. > @"North Texas" said: > > @78Staff said: > > Posted on this the SC thread, but surprised CM actually picked Suzann. Two missed cuts since coming back. Game's obviously not there yet. Much like Kerr, after so many SC's it's time for these old blood girls to step aside, get some Asst.

She may be the Paula Creamer of 2017, and prove everyone wrong with a steller cup, but the odds are against it I would say. Jodi is also a suspect pick imo. Euro's are not like the US team this year full of rookies, I think only one rookie - Anna. So there really wasn't any need to stack vets like Juli is likely to do - especially after seeing Catrina's picks.... (which I am also against) > > > > Several names on the Euro list are probably like "I got passed over for that?". Lindberg a Major winner last year, and Skarpnord No. 3 on the OOM come to mind... > > > > Agree on Celine though, that is a good pick. > > Were there any players who should have been obvious choices that got left off? I'm not the best to answer, as I don't follow LET that much, but Agree with what has already been posted - Reid, Skarpnord as already noted, and No 1 and 2 on the LET OOM might have something to say about it also... although I admit I don't know anything about them.
  13. > @Argonne69 said: > Lindberg's 15 minutes of fame ended last season. Her game's been in the toilet. Zero top 10's this season. 8 missed cuts, including four of the five majors. She managed a 60T at the KPMG. > > I feel for CM. There are no Europeans in the Top 10 in the CME race. There are seven in the Top 50. I agree, not saying she should have been picked but as a major winner she's probably a bit perturbed, as a few others might be. Pernilla's a one n done most likely - buddy of mine was all happy when she won but I said it then, she caught lightning in a bottle but we'll never hear from her again, much like Hillary Homeyer..err Lunke.
  14. Posted on this the SC thread, but surprised CM actually picked Suzann. Two missed cuts since coming back. Game's obviously not there yet. Much like Kerr, after so many SC's it's time for these old blood girls to step aside, get some Asst. Captain experience as they are undoubtedly upcoming Capt's. Honestly I feel it's a bit selfish for SP to even ask to play, considering - but it is what it is. She may be the Paula Creamer of 2017, and prove everyone wrong with a steller cup, but the odds are against it I would say. Jodi is also a suspect pick imo. Euro's are not like the US team this year full of rookies, I think only one rookie - Anna. So there really wasn't any need to stack vets like Juli is likely to do - especially after seeing Catrina's picks.... (which I am also against) Several names on the Euro list are probably like "I got passed over for that?". Lindberg a Major winner last year, and Skarpnord No. 3 on the OOM come to mind... Agree on Celine though, that is a good pick.
