  1. I don't think the logo obnoxious or gaudy, and maybe you need to be more careful when putting clubs back into your bag so as not to damage the knit. Also, my main complaint of the manf headcover was not the logo itself, but the size of the headcover. It is very a rigid, vinyl looking, full 1 inch wider than my previous headcover. It seems to be made this large to support it's logo,not my convenience. jmo
  2. Unfortunately course marshals are pretty much non existent on many courses.
  3. I got a 20% discount on my order, so I purchased one of these for the driver and one for the 4w. Quality knit covers are somewhat expensive, but I get rid of the boot sized manf headcovers. https://rockettour.com/collections/stripes/products/victory-stripe-pom-pom-navy-red-white
  4. When you put advertising over practicality, sorry, but I disagree.
  5. One of the guys I golf with is very assertive with letting slow players know they are playing slow. He will call them out vocally 200 yds out and let them know. I cringe a bit because I am one who shies away from confrontations, but not him. He does it tactfully, but lets them know plainly that they are holding up the course. Another friend who calmly told another twosome that they were slow almost go punched out for it. Go figure, but you never know how some will respond.
  6. To me, this is a bit unethical to me, having a 'broadcasting' headcover the size of a plate for your driver. Now I like Callaway clubs, but I wish they would think more practical instead of a big advertising billboard of a headcover that dominates the space in my bag. The photo below shows the Callaway Mavrik headcover the comes with the club, a full 6 inches in diameter! I is 1 inch larger than the Cleveland headcover next to it. Imagine having this headcover in your bag, with a Mavrik 4w head cover, and a hybrid headcover. Now for me, I have 5 hybrids in my bag, and the headcovers were just
  7. You mute your club with hot melt and you still have 3 unmuted drivers in your 4some. What's a guy to do?
  8. Sound like great shoes, but I have really comfortable shoes right now, as do most golfers, and to imply a 4.5 stroke hc reduction is unethical to me.
  9. Good points. 'Self-policing' is an uncomfortable thing for many people, because they don't want to get into arguments. Last year we tried to encourage a 2some to pick up the pace and one of them started getting irate, filled with obscenities. So we backed off and let them get an entire hole of distance between them and our 4some only to have the one guy shout obscenities at us from the green they were on all the way back to the tee, where we were waiting (par 4). The pro shop was called and talked with the 2some and that seemed to calm things down. Self-policing? At your own risk.
  10. Yes and no. Yes, nobody can really stop anybody from playing tees beyond their capability, but no, in a more ethical sense. I know it's been said thousands of times in these forums, in the sense of respecting other golfers, ethically you need to keep pace of play up. Sure, go play the 6400 yd tees when you struggle to hit it 200 yds off the tee, but it most likely cost the rest of the course efficient pace of play.
  11. Absolutely, X & J's shots seemed very tentative and unsure, a sign of stress or choking. I can only imagine the pressure that is out there, but those who can handle the pressure are the one's who win. Koepka seems so confident in these situations.
  12. I didn't expect both J & X playing poorly, maybe J but not both.
  13. Bones is a very good commentator.
