    Fashion or item you laughed at, but then turned the corner on and loved?

    So I am going to preface this by saying I don't think there are any clothes that will make me actually look good, so comfort, function and least crap looking are the order of importance... In that vein, I laughed at the jogger pants that came about. Being a short fat man I don't need anything...

    Chostochondritis, anyone ever deal with this?

    So I have been lifting weights regularly for the first time in a long time and I have seen some series benefits including helping alleviate some shoulder pain, but last night after a good workout I had some chest pain right by the sternum on my right pec. Nothing to make me worried about a...

    Favorite bets/wagers?

    The recent podcast and subsequent thread between @JB & @golfunfiltered has me really excited. I like it when stakes are something other than money (that is fun too) and in the past on this forum I have wagered my facial hair against another members facial hair, my forum name for a year as well...

    The Ignore feature is phenomenal

    Just FYI, the Ignore feature of this new forum is easy to use and works fantastically. I have used it myself to avoid posts that I don't care to see, and I am sure some have used it on my posts to not see something. I think it gets overlooked so wanted to remind people of it.

    Slow play: could caddies be the solution?

    So in our continuing solution to trying to fix slow play, could caddies/forecaddies be the answer? You have what is basically an employee (think most are independent contractors but they are paid by the course) of the course with every group, they are helping give reads, find balls and club...

    Callaway Tour Authentic Line

    I have tested out Callaway Apparel before and it has been hit or miss, was lucky enough to get one of their new premium Tour Authentic Polos and man it is a big hit in my opinion. Super soft, breathable and look sharp. Will add some photos in the next post, but am definitely going to pick up...

    Favorite non golf athletic shoes?

    Couldn't find a thread on this, if there is Mods, please merge. I am not exactly fashionable, but I have some sneakers that I like. When I was in college the Adidas Rod Laver and stan smith were really popular, then I found the Puma GV Special... I had several pair and they were comfortable...

    2017 Cleveland Golf Stand bag Review thread

    Couldn't find a thread on this bag, but 6 of us lucky THPers got one of these at the Gamechanger this past weekend (1 went with the cart bag). Will get some photos up shortly, but so far I am very impressed with this golf bag. I have been on the search for the perfect bag, and this one is as...

    What do you do with the crappy tipper?

    Yesterday one of my friends and I played in a NCGA and got paired up with a couple interesting cats. One guy was quite pleasant, but had a consistent habit of moving around when others were putting, including being very close to them. The other guy.... well I would call him a hat for donkeys...

    Michelle Wie WITB Winner 2018 LPGA HSBC

    Figured I would do this for the LPGA winner because I stayed up to watch this finish, and also because her bag set up is FASCINATING! Driver: Callaway Rogue 10.5* w/Mitsubishi Diamana X 60x 3W: Callaway GBB Epic 15* w/Mitsubishi Diamana X 5W: Callaway Rogue 19* w/Mitsubishi Diamana X 7W...

    #Bag Battle 5I/H spot in the bag

    So in my quest to find the right club for me in the 5I/5H spot I have brought in 4 contenders to figure out which is the best option. Quickly about me: slow swing speed, not great swing and have been working on the swing for quite a while, and plan to keep working on it. Have an 11.3 GHIN...

    Cleveland Game Changer Travel Thread

    for us lucky schmucks who got into this, trying to get the ball rolling. Since we are playing at Talking stick I think that would likely be the best place to stay. Direct at the resort is $590 for 2 nights with 2 queen beds (or $245 a person if someone wants to bunk up). Going to check around...

    Super Dave Osborne: AKA Marty Funkhouser

    I am listening to a podcast where Bob Einstein is on, and I am laughing my butt off. He is telling stories of Super Dave and Curb your enthusiasm. I loved the Super Dave show when I was a kid, and he is usually my favorite part of Curb episodes (him or leon). His stories and jokes are just...
