  1. I'm sure you will find mostly Taylormade, Ping, and Callaway in the bags, but really, everyone should be playing Hogan Icons. Just look at these beauties!!!
  2. Lots of great responses and information in the replies. Thanks very much. So far, just icing it seems to take care of any flare-ups and they are gone the next day. I did pickup one of those patellar straps at the local CVS. In addition, he is going to be doing some stretching exercises as recommended by his doctor. Today, he had baseball tryouts and then we went to the range later for a bucket. No issues. And we even made sure to get some speed sticks work in since he is obviously in a growth spurt.
  3. Any juniors here have Osgood-Schlatter Disease (OSD) as they went through growth spurts? Generally, OSD is knee pain that is related to growth spurts and is treated with rest, ice and possibly wearing a knee sleeve as a protection. My kid is pretty active at school recess and plays baseball and football in addition to golf. He first felt pain in his right knee (right handed golf swing) while playing in a tournament that we had to withdraw. We iced a few days and took a couple weeks off. Was fine and playing golf again, going to workout classes, but now feels the pain again after doing box jumps at his workout class tonight. Just curious if others went through this and any advice appreciated. Reference info: https://www.hopkinsmedicine.org/health/conditions-and-diseases/osgoodschlatter-disease "Osgood-Schlatter disease is a condition that causes pain and swelling below the knee joint, where the patellar tendon attaches to the top of the shinbone (tibia), a spot called the tibial tuberosity. There may also be inflammation of the patellar tendon, which stretches over the kneecap. Osgood-Schlatter disease is most commonly found in young athletes who play sports that require a lot of jumping and/or running."
  4. When I’m with my kid, we just avoid them whether range, chip, putt or course. @mrshinsa Obviously, we go to the same course, and thankfully, there aren’t many smoking cigars at the practice areas. If it’s the adults only, I love having a good cigar during the round, but I never drink.

  7. From the Bay Area to Phoenix is 10-12 hour drive depending on when you leave and how heavy your foot is. That many hours is the most I would drive.

  9. Assuming your swing is in reasonable shape, go see a fitter if you want a new set of clubs. Otherwise, a new set of clubs won't make you a scratch golfer.
  10. Enjoyed watching the PNC. Keeping my hopes up that Tiger can play the four majors and the Players this year. Where's my Charlie Woods PNC 2021 WITB thread?
  11. Tiger's Scotty makes me feel good about sticking with my same putter for a decade+.
  12. Thanks would be interested for sure.
  13. The marketing is endless: "Get your Brooks on with Srixon."
