    Caddies - Worth It?

    I played a new course for the first time a few weeks ago. It was mandatory to take a caddie. However, my caddie was in his first few weeks at the course, and really didn't provide any valuable information. A lot of "Avoid the right side" when there is clearly water to the right. Or "Avoid...

    Title explains it. How often do you get new grips? I usually replace mine after every year.

    Who Would You Watch On The Range?

    I'm pretty excited to attend the U.S. Open next year at Oakmont. It will be the first tournament I attend. I'm already starting to think about strategy for a day. I definitely want to spend some time at the range and watch some of the guys warm up. If you could pick one player to watch on the...

    Golf Off-season

    For those of you that cannot play golf for the entire year, what does your off-season consist of? Do you use a simulator? Indoor driving range? Completely take a few months off? I usually put the clubs away for a month or two. I might practice putting/chipping indoors. We have an indoor...

    New Tournament

    You are allowed to add one new tournament to the PGA Tour Schedule. You can pick any course, but the event will be played at that course every year. Which course would you pick? What would the name of the tournament be?

    FREE Wooden Golf Ball Display Case

    A few weeks ago, Rob (CAA_Beat) was generous enough to send me his Club Glove. I was blown away when I received it. It was a great gesture and I can't wait to put it to use. I'd like to return the favor to the THP Community and keep the generosity going. I would like to give away my Wooden...

    Dixon Golf Balls

    Dixon was a sponsor for the last golf outing I played in. They were generous enough to provide each participant with a sleeve of their Dixon Earth golf balls. They also gave us a 10% off coupon to use online. I did some research on them when I got home, and was absolutely shocked at what I saw...

    Gambling On The Course - Groups Of Three

    Just wanted to see you thoughts about bets in a threesome. One of the games I always turn to is the 9's game. For those of you who don't know, the 9's game consits of 9 possible points on each hole (handicaps enforced). For a three-way tie, 3 points are awarded to each golfer. With all...
