    Did anyone in your family play golf when you got started?

    I was thinking about my Dad recently and his reaction to my interest in golf...first, he bought me some musclebacks at the Army thrift store at the base we were on at the time. Then, he dumped me out at the range and eventually the local par 3 course for a bit of guidance from some old timers. I...

    How has your perception of various OEMs changes since you started playing?

    I know my perception has changed about several OEMs and their products have changed in almost 30 years. How about you guys? Have some stayed the same?

    San Francisco dining?

    My office is in SF and I’ve been to SF easily 150+ times, but I’m always looking for somewhere new to eat or grab a cocktail. I primarily work in SOMA. Ideas?

    Where have you traveled lately?

    I was thinking about all of the business travelers that are likely on THP...and me. I travel every 2 weeks these days, down from my weekly stints JB multiple cities. Where have you been lately? Where are you headed next? Maybe this will serve as a way to grab a drink with a THPer. My last 4...

    What is the longest you've gamed a putter?

    Simple question...I know of a specific example of a 20+ year streak with one member here, but I'm curious how committed some of you have been to the same flat stick.

    Out-of-market sports options?

    My move to Denver has raised obvious concerns...how do I watch the Falcons / Braves / UGA / Atlanta United on the big screen TV y'all? Comcast is my primary option for 1G/2G internet speeds and I can easily get a cable package from them as I've had here in ATL, but they don't do much for...

    Palm Springs area?

    Sooooo I don't think I'm going to find a way to get myself back onto The Hideaway in November but I have to be there for 4-5 days for a work paid relaxation trip. What courses should I try to play? I think I have reciprocal benefits with Mission Hills. A couple of guys from work want to play...

    Swing your swing?

    "Philosophical" question... We all try to improve our game via lessons, grinding on the range, etc. There are thousands of training devices, more YouTube instructional videos than you can possibly watch in a lifetime and a plethora of swing coaches to study with. With the assumption you have a...

    Best push cart / bag combo?

    Examples: Clicgear + Callaway Org? Sun Mountain Speed + Sync bag? Thoughts? I haven’t bought a push cart in 16 or 17 years.

    Best value in a used driver for a teen?

    To clarify, my son just caved in the driver that came with his Strata set of clubs I bought him. He's 14 and grown man size and isn't remotely through growing...I'd like to snag something for him that is one or two seasons old that will serve him for the next year at least and I don't have to...

    Push fade...

    I don’t have a video but I’ve been fighting a push fade for about a month. I thought I had it solved but it keeps showing up. In general, what is the cause and some things I can check to correct this? I’ve been striking the ball really well otherwise.

    Wedges - How many do you carry and why?

    The high handicap wedge thread made me curious...I played golf for close to 15 years with just a set PW, a 50* muscleback gap wedge and a 56* or 58* sand wedge. I felt I could make all the shots with these 3 clubs and had a very good short game during that period. I never felt like I needed one...

    How has your fitted “spec” changed with your game?

    I was thinking today about my own swing evolution and resulting equipment spec over the years and I was curious how yours has changed. For example, has an improvement in your posture or stance changes your lie or length specs. Has a decrease in swing speed changed your shaft flex? Has your...

    Anyone enjoy Arrow / Flash / Legends? I'm not a legends fan but have enjoyed the other shows. Attending DragonCon in ATL this weekend brought this to mind after we attended a panel on The Flash. It was pretty neat to ask questions from several of the Flash cast members. Also had no idea Kate...
