    American Heart Association's Heart Walk

    So this has become a pretty personal thing for me over the last couple of months. As some know my girlfriend Kristen, who many of you have met, had a minor heart attack at the age of 33. Luckily she was able to notice the signs and we was able to get her treatment fairly quickly with no real...

    So alot of comparisions are being made between Rory and Tiger and their early career numbers and how they match up. But I want to take that discussion one step farther and discuss the Tiger/Sergio dynamic and if Rory and Rickie may end up in the same place. Rickie has beat Rory head to head in...

    Champions Tour: Does it affect your thoughts on a Players Career?

    So this came to mind based on discussion in another thread. Does a players success or lack of success on the Champions Tour affect the why you think about their total career? Does a Member winning a major there count as much in your mind as them winning a major on the regular Tour? I...

    If my math is right wont an inch and half short make them play a degree or two upright as well. When you start taking off huge sections of club like that, its a dominio effect. Not only that its going to change the flex profile of the shaft as well. This isn't a big a deal in steel as graphite...

    Pulled the head off my 712 AP2 3 iron on Wednesday and today got around to putting my new C-Taper in it. Have to say I'm a little nervous about it. It's the first reshaft I have done in probably 15 years. I feel like I took all the right steps and had everything clean enough and prepped good...

    F/S: Miyazika Kusala Black 61S R11S Tipped

    I have a Miya Kusala Black 61S with a R11S tip for sale. I used the shaft in my driver for about 5 rounds and a small amount of testing and decided it wasn't for me. The shaft is an authentic Miyazaki with an etched serial number and holographic sticker. This was a very clean pull from a...

    My dad and I always used a torch. Only time we discolored something was titanium and that was our first pull of that material back in the mid-late 90's. Always had that big blue bottle of butane around the house...a couple usually.

    Major Course Setup

    So read a snippet from the USGA presser from Pinehurst that the course will be set at 75xx yards for the men. That's a big, long track for a sea level course at the US Open. It's about 600 yards longer than Merion last year which played a shade under 6900 if I remember. It made ask myself...

    Pain: Why do some hurt and some don't?

    So I read a lot about guys who talk about pain in their elbows, wrist, shoulders, back, and other various joints. I see alot of guys who are pondering a move/have moved to graphite because its easier on joints, lighter, same feel as steel, better/longer ball flight, and other reasons. And I...
