    More SkyCaddie

    I see that SkyCaddie has a new interface, called CaddieSync. am liking the favourites feature. Although the SkyCaddie now holds 20 courses, if I have more than that I want to rotate, I can just put them on my favourites list and grab them from there. also, the tabbed display makes for easier...

    has anyone seen any of the stuff Slighter produces? they're another small business custom putter builder and their products are quite nice looking. i see they have a lot of traditional styles they can make for you: or some funky ones: anyways, any feedback or experience you may have had...

    George Lopez too ethnic?

    F2, face forward wedges

    ok, i doubt if anybody uses these clubs, but has anybody hit them at all? for those who don't know about them, the face of the club is moved way forward of the hosel, and they(F2) says you'll make better contract, less hosel drag in the thick stuff, blah, blah. they look like this: i'd...

    i think this is an accessory?

    finally finished our handy dandy beeeoootiful golf storage cabinet. i started this thing over 5 weeks ago, but it sat there in the shop untouched for a few weeks too. someone,cough, made me put the afterburners on and get it done for this little shindig we're having this weekend. :eyepoke: so...

    i noticed at the last golf course i played, in the Pro Shop they were selling cans of oxygen. it was packaged in a dispenser the size of a shaving cream can, looking almost like a jumbo sized inhaler that asthma sufferers use. my question is would this be legal, USGA-wise? anyways, i'm...
