Last year I went to my local shop and scored 2 free boxes of Callaway Tour iZ balls for buying a $100 gift card.  They also had BOGO on all boxes of balls (I think excluding ProV1s...).  I went back in the afternoon and used the gift card with the 25% off one item door prize from the morning and bought a new wedge.  I'll for sure be back this year.
  I heard on the radio the other day about people buying insurance policies in which the cunning entrepreneurs remaining would take care of pets left behind following the rapture.  It's like buying a house on Second Life using real money...
I actually played a round last summer with a guy who buys his equipment using similar financial means.  He worked out a deal with a local shop to sell balls for 25 cents each in store credit.  The shop then turns and sells them for 50 cents or something similar.  He is a member of a local club and plays all the time and has a giant bucket on the back of his golf cart full of balls he's found on the course.  For reference, he plays 5ish times a week and it took him a...
The only reason I had an opportunity to hit these approach shots was because I was bailed out by my scramble partners.  Generally speaking, when my driver is on, I can't buy an approach shot.  When I'm hitting my irons crisp, I'm all over off the tee.  I can't seem to embrace both swings at the same time...
I'm so close to being good at this game...  I work with intercollegiate athletics and played an end-of-year scramble with my staff earlier this week.  I was pegged as one of the better players there and from random draw played with three people physically incapable of hitting the ball 100 yards.  They teed off from the forward tees and I played from about 6200.  The course we played is links style with several broken fairways and about 5 yards of rough to deal with...
Its also going to depend on how you grip the club.  Gripped more in the fingers, you'll likely require a smaller grip than if you grip more in the palm.  Some people hold the club differently.  I play midsize grips and for me, I held a club with midsize grips and just knew it was more comfortable.  I haven't considered the distance between my fingers and palm but I play way better with midsize.
How consistent would you say your position is from shot to shot?  It wouldn't surprise me if I accidentally waiver-ed by as much as a ball or so in any direction...
While I try to keep my ball position consistent, I'm not terribly mindful of it during a round.  How much do you pay attention to your ball position when you play?  Is is a conscious effort or more intuition than anything?  I'm wondering if this has something to do with my shot-shaping inconsistency...
Couldn't you argue that the reason for spending $125 for a shirt is a lack of available substitutes?  I think there is absolutely a market for athletic-cut golf shirts.  The companies that sell them are typically designer-type providers that charge obscene prices for the general masses.  For those of us living in the real world, I would absolutely consider purchasing reasonably priced shirts that fit well.  
Haha!  I like the other ads:  "You may also like: Nike Crush Golf Balls 12pk, $24.99; Wilson Dry Golf Gloves 3pk, $15.00"   Solid complements to my new golden driver...
