    Post Up Your Putting Games

    Golf is hard and we all need to practice as much as we can to improve. But practice implies repeatedly doing drills over and over again, which gets boring, which makes us not want to practice and we're back to being terrible instead of merely bad :alien: So, to avoid the cycle of boring drills...

    Overhaul Your Bag

    THPers love equipment; that’s evident with even just a quick glance across the forums. We all have our favorite brand(s) and go to clubs but let’s have some fun with that. Your task, should you choose to accept it, is to overhaul your bag. The rules are simple and few: 1. Your overhauled bag...

    How Long Since Your Personal Best?

    We all have one, but how long has it been since you shot it? I posted mine last March, so I’m 18 months since my best round. How long has it been since yours?

    FS: Balls, balls, balls.

    I’m moving out of character and going all in on the AVX, which I was fitted into at #UltimateTestingWithTitleist, so I’m clearing out my hoard of various balls. What’s available is what’s pictured. Urethane balls: $28/dozen for single dozen, sleeves shipped CONUS in USPS small flat rate box...

    WTT F7 driver head for F7+

    Wanting to try the F7+ in actual play, rather than indoors, so I am looking for someone out there who may have an F7+ but might want a little more spin/forgiveness. Head is gloss black. Two apologies are some streaks on the bottom which likely can be rubbed off. Also there is a scratch at the...

    What is your putting practice routine?

    Most of us don't have a great deal of time to work on our games, and we have to squeeze as much work as we can into whatever time we have available. Let's say you had 30 minutes of practice time you could dedicate to working on the flatstick, what is your routine?

    Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's clubs

    Okay, we've all done this: seen a nice driver or good looking set of irons and wanted some in our bag. For me it was J4U's PTx irons (followed closely by his SubZero driver). So THPers, what clubs of thy neighbor do you covet (and have you gotten them for yourself yet)?

    Album Covers: Post up your favorites

    We buy music to listen to but part of the experience is the cover artwork. So, if you have an album cover you appreciate for the cover art, whether or not you're a fan of the music underneath, post it up. This is one of my favorites - Supertramp, "Breakfast in America"

    "1941 - a date which will live in infamy - the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan.

    ProLaunch Red iron shafts

    Can any of our resident shaft experts shed some light on this particular shaft? I've done some searching but tapatalk isn't all that effective for me. Golfworks calls it low launch but doesn't have any meaningful info outside of that. I'm just looking for some more specs on it (weight, etc.)...
