    Suggestions for a 3 Wood

    I don't currently carry a 3wd but I'm ready to put one in play. I'm looking for suggestions with the following criteria: 1. Head needs to get the ball in the air quickly/easily 2. Would like to play a stock shaft; I hover at 100mph swing speed with a driver so I play stiff shafts 3. I have a...

    Embroidering Name on Bag

    My friend shows up at the course last weekend with a new gift from his wife, a new bag with his name embroidered on the bottom pocket. I thought it looked fantastic and it turns out it was inexpensive; he said it cost less that $15 to have it done. Since I recently purchased a new bag I, too...

    Have you tried to teach your wife (gf) to play golf?

    My GF has mentioned that she'd like to play golf with me so I've offered lessons, she's not interested. She says she'll play if I teach her. Well, from my past experience (trying to teach the ex-wife many years ago) trying to teach a significant other is a bad idea. Has anyone here been...

    FS FT - Gortex Rain Suit 'Cobra Logo'

    I had this rain suit made for me a few years back. I wore the pants more than the top but because of the gortex material there is very little color fading between the two, if any at all. The good - It's Gortex material, it will keep you dry and unbelievably warm. The bad - Some of the...

    Where to use my Golden Ticket

    I’ve been so busy the past several weeks (new job, new house, family visits, etc.) and I haven’t been able to spend any quality time being involved here (outside of occasional lurking) much less playing golf. All should be settled by mid next week. Regardless, busyness hasn’t kept me from...

    Scotty Cameron Red Dot Failure

    Playing this past Saturday, I used my SC to scoop a partners ball out of the water. When I wiped my putter clean one of the red dots came off, it basically wiped off like a drop of water. It didn't fall apart, but it simply came off. Has anyone else had this happen? Is the dot died poly...

    Why Is There No Love for PING Around Here?

    Ping is, arguably, responsible for changing the game, in terms of equipment; 80s/90s. Most of us that have been around the game that long remember their dominance and innovation. They're still making some great products today. However, I read very little about their offerings here, and I'm...
