  1. Lol.. The irony of a bunch of guys complaining about how out of touch the LPGA is on women's clothing is awesome. Why are some of you SOO invested? It's kind of creepy. This nothing thread would have been a great Seinfeld episode.
  2. GREAT putter and condition Ben. I don't think the flat black does her justice with a camera. Whoever gets her will be a lucky golfer.
  3. Lol.. no putter.. I never found a Scratch Putter I liked enough to make the investment. And although I am a GREAT admirer of Slighter and we've shared emails on a few projects, nothings ever come of them. I always get busy.. that said, thanks for the reminder.. I do have a few putters that could use his skills.. mmmm...
  4. I don't have enough ROTFLMFAO for the OP Headed to the store to find some.
  5. I have way too many putter covers and they are sitting in a box. I grab whatever looks cool on my way out. I'd decided to get them out of the box and at least put them on a shelf just so I don't have to dig anymore. I dump the box over and look what was in the bottom. Lol... Can't even remember who I got it from. NOT FOR SALE (prob not worth much anyway). Just thought my fellow putter geeks would appreciate a walk back down memory lane. :-)
  6. Phil doesn't get enough credit. If Tiger plays soccer instead of Golf, Phil is #2 instead of Woods. That makes him the easy #3.
  7. As I sit here watching the US Open, I thought of this thread. It seems to me that most of the Pros come up short too. Very few go long. Just sayin.....
  8. I was going to feel bad, but then I realized you live in Australia. Quite possibly the coolest and most fun country in the entire world. Where else can you get bitten by a shark, punched by a kangaroo, out drank by a hottie and wrestle an croc all in the same day? All the while dodging venemous little beasts that can kill you with one eye. Addidas should have sent you a card that said "good to be you in FORKING AUSTRALIA!! Quit your whinging" ;)
  9. This. The guy was a Doosh and it's a Doosh move. You have to recognize it and punch (figuratively) him first. "Hey Jeff, I'm putting for bogey here". Hey Jeff, I'm chipping for bird". Hey Jeff, I really want to make this par putt" And, when he asks as you address, back off and go through your entire pre-shot again. Walk the green if that's what it takes to settle down. Make him and everyone else wait. I would refrain from going after him "hey Jeff, what is this for you?", because it'll just get you out of rhythm. But telling him your score, etc.. puts YOU in control vs. him.
  10. Ugh.. I hate the quote restrictions.. BH.. I agree. But you don't get one without the other. And, it's disingenuous (or arrogant) to think you don't use the forgiveness. There's a reason the UDIs, etc.. are getting so popular. It's essentially a GI iron. And to think that Mark doesn't benefit from a hybrid mishit over a 2 iron mishit is, IMHO, also disingenuous.. All of the same principles that apply to a guy of marks skill level with the 3H vs the 3I apply to a guy of my skill level with a 7I 900 forged vs a 900 HM.
  11. His reason is ball flight and spin related, not forgiveness/ball striking. Uh.. Ya.. kinda like GI/SGI irons with their low center of gravity and high launch.. And yes, a hybrid is more forgiving. To say he doesn't get an advantage from that on a few shots is silly. You were implying in your other post that he couldn't hit any higher than a 5 iron and had to use a hybrid instead, which just isn't true. Nobody's saying a hybrid isn't more forgiving than a long iron, but forgiveness doesn't really have any reason to do with why he chooses to use a 23° hybrid. Sure it's a byproduct of h

  13. I guesss no one sees the irony of MC saying that while going to hybrids ( a giant GI club) after his 5Iron?
  14. The secret is; Tour pros are superstitious head cases. If it wasn't for apparel contracts, 1/2 of them would wear their "lowest round" shirt 4 days in a row and have mismatched socks. Would you tell the world what a wacko you are or would it be a "secret"? ;)
