    What is a "Sandy"?

    Having a debate with some friends as to what constitutes a "Sandy". I am in the camp of getting up and down for par or better within 2 strokes after you land in the sand. But some are arguing its just par or better on the hole if you are in the sand at anytime on the hole. Their opinion is...

    Favorite Frozen Hamburger Patty

    I love me a good burger, I don't have the time to make them from scratch so I usually buy Schweid & Sons or Wahlburgers fresh patties which I usually freeze half of anyway. So I'm wondering does anyone have a favorite frozen hamburger patty?

    5 Iron Alternative?

    I currently game a Ping G410 5I 23.5 loft and am having so much trouble with it off the tee on a par 3 at my home course. My buddy has a specific 3W(RBZ2) he plays off our 18th tee because he draws it really well; I was thinking maybe I need a specific club for our 8th hole which is a par 3 with...

    Comfortable Carry Bag?

    What are people's thoughts on a comfortable carry bag? I currently have a Sun Mountain 2.5 and have been using it for almost a year and I have to say that while it is very light the straps are very uncomfortable for me. After a year I thought I would get used to them but after every round my...

This is what...

    Caddy tipping/etiquette

    I'm going to be playing a course where caddies are required for the first time. What does one usually tip a caddy? We are playing with a member so I guess I should ask him when we get there. Also anyone have any etiquette tips? I don't want to look like more of an idiot out there then usual lol.

    Big Break Mexico Belts

    Anyone know what belts Brent and Matt were wearing on Big Break Mexico? They have a hand logo on the buckle. I think Matt's was snakeskin or at least looked like it.
