  1. Just think how much better Hideki's score would have been if he didn't have to overcome the seam issue! Good enough for world class golfers, but not for WRX ers! (written mostly tongue in cheek
  2. Srixon figured out a clever way to deal with their pesky seam issue described in the ZStar thread here--
  3. Probably not, but for $50/dozen, they should be centered.
  4. I've found that the Kirkland gloves are as durable as any thin cabretta I've played. The fit isn't quite as good as some other value gloves. I find the MG more consistent in sizing, but for me, the cost-benefit of the Kirkland glove makes sense. I'm a real sweater so getting 4 gloves at a time helps as I will rotate gloves during a round to allow for drying.
  5. That's a dealbreaker for me and other yellow ball players.
  6. The difference will be negligible and all but tour level players and other elites won't be able to tell the difference. A launch monitor might pick up some minor differences but this will not show up in golf ball performance where it counts. On the golf course.
  7. good advertisement for back surgery to improve ball striking. Your observation about golfballs.....not so much.
  8. Got a sleeve at an outing. It's an ok 2 piece surlyn ball, harder than a soft feel. With the Srixon buy 2 get one free promo, the soft feel is a very good buy for a 2 piecer.
  9. When I'm not getting along with my driver, I put my Big Bertha Mini Driver 1.5 in the bag. It's a good confidence builder.
  10. I love the Ping Glide 2.0s. Best wedges I've ever used. I carry 50, 54, 58. Grooves stay sharp. The standard shaft works very well for my game. As others write, get the right grind for your needs and game, no matter what you choose.
  11. I like the rangefinder to get yardages to hazards--I think it's invaluable for that purpose as well as getting yardage to pin. A good rangefinder is available for less than $150--Costco, Mastergrip and others I've read about On threads here. Look for black Friday deals.
  12. The Srixon Soft Feel ball is a very good 2 piece. Srixon has buy 2, get one free promo now, available at most golf equipment retailers. Drops price to about $15/dozen.
  13. It would be great to get an explanation from Costco! They have jumped into the golf equipment market with their golfballs--just look at the number of posts here--as well as putters, wedges, gloves, etc. A lot of their success originated here, and I'd be very surprised if someone in their sporting goods dept. at the corporate level was not aware of this controversy.
  14. No problem--just having fun and I also hate it when people are obnoxious assh*les here. We're all entitled to our opinions and disagreements should be civil. No worries!!
  15. Let us know if you file a class action lawsuit to remedy this potentially egregious act of false advertising by Costco
  16. It is an excellent ball. I really don't understand the matte ball trend, but to each their own. It seems like they would perform differently given the cover material, but all I can comment on with the matte finish is that the white and yellow are tougher to see.
  17. I have a 3.0 which I've really enjoyed for many rounds. I played with a guy who has a 4.0 and the "improvements" are unimpressive. The basic unit and mechanical construction are the same. I've had the XL cup holder for a long time, as well as the steering knob.
  18. A $5 reduction from $35 to $30 (14% savings) isn't a game changer.
  19. Bottom line is right. Snell balls available in yellow.
  20. I think even Titleist realized that its NXT balls were overpriced and missed the price point for a decent surlyn ball, so it's gone. If it's gotta be a Titleist, try the Velocity or TruFeel. The TruFeel is as good a surlyn ball as you'll find.
  21. I feel MUCH safer with my own cart. Riding with someone puts you a couple feet away from their face. I think $10 is reasonable, and money well spent. If you share a cart with a friend or stranger you should both, at the very least, wear masks while in the cart.
  22. Ping Traverse is an excellent bag that checks all your boxes. Ping Pioneer is also a great bag--a little heavier than the Traverse.
  23. Any details about your opinion of the poor quality? That can mean a lot of things. Fabric? Fit? Durability? Other reasons?
