Sell it here or on craigslist.  Offer it for 80 cents on the dollar (or 75 cents, what ever you think you can get for it) in exchange for cash.  So somebody gives you $150 or $160 in exchange for the $200 nike gift card, and then you can use it for green's fees.    Donate it to a charity and write it off on your taxes.   Send it to me, and I will consider PM'ing you a thank you (can't promise anything, but the only way to find out if I will follow through is if...
This is the funniest thing I have read on this website in days.  It really isn't funny, but I swear that in every 18 hole round, I will have at least one shank / bladed wedge shot.  Different results, both come from the same position.  ~50 yards away, tight fairway lie, holding my SW. 
I am a cheap golfer, I tend to play courses that are modestly priced.    So that being said, here are a few of my reactions to the list above.    1. I rarely eat at the golf course.  The courses that I play will typically have your regular pub kind of food.  If I get a hot dog at the turn I am expecting ball park quality, give or take.  I am never disappointed.    2. I have never set foot in a golf locker room.  I change my shoes in the parking lot, and if I...
it's a solid idea, however just this spring we tried to get people from the Chicago area together for a golf outing.  We had 3 pages of people that said they were interested.  I took the initiative and organized a round for the beginning of the season, one other player actually made it out.  A few weeks later, somebody else tried, nobody was available.  After that, nobody even bothered posting to the thread.    If we can't get a group of people that live in the same city...
that would scare the SHIT out of me...  I mean he likely had to carry the golf bag on his shoulder, and it had to sit in his/your car from where, etc.    Mine would probably be when I was a kid and didn't play golf all that seriously.  I went to the range with a friend because we were looking for something to do.  He somehow managed to hit a golf ball backwards into the parking lot.  To this day, I watched him do it.  He had a fairway wood in his hand, and the ball was...
I played a twilight round today after work.  The front 9 was on the slow side, which guaranteed that I wouldn't have time to finish the entire back 9.  At the turn, powered with the advice from the ranger that nobody was behind us, I spoke to the pro shop and asked if I could play the front again, rather than continuing to wait on the back 9.      I only got to play 4 holes, on the 5th it was too dark to locate the ball off the tee box, so I walked in after...
Around $10 in labor, plus the cost of the shaft and grip.  This should make it so the old shaft can be reused later.    Some proshops might give you a break if you buy the shaft and grip from them, but that has been my experience. 
I have a 3i replacement as well.  At first I didn't like it, it felt lighter than my g25 irons, so I would try to overswing it.  Once I slowed my back swing down and remembered to take a short backswing with it, it goes like a rocket.    I don't get as much height out of it as my 4w, but I get a predictable ball flight out of most conditions (rough, fairway, etc.) 
4GB of memory isn't much for windows 8.  a 5400RPM hard disk drive is pretty slow, compared to the preferred SSD.  4 cell lion battery probably isn't going to give you much in the way of battery life.    My mother in law bought an idea pad a while back.  It was a piece of junk, it broke multiple times in the 1 year that they had it.  After one year, they finally put it in a drawer and purchased a MAC.  They have not had ANY problems since.  Now, I will tell you, that...
Do you consider this person a real friend out side of the golf course?  What I mean is, do you think this person is an honest person in life's endeavors that actually matter?    What I mean is, if this person is a true friend, and you trust him to babysit your child / dog / elderly parent, but he chooses to make himself feel better about the game of golf, he isn't hurting anybody but himself.  Let it go.    If, you don't associate with this person outside of the golf...
