A couple of weeks back, TST put up a Twitter contest of sorts to win a TaylorMade "Love" headcover.  I came across the contest maybe 3 hours after mentioning to my wife that for my first father's day, some incredibly gaudy headcover would be appropriate from Theodore, our son.  Well, she went to work and came up with this.   Granted, it was this tweet that officially won the contest, but the point remains that my son literally played an integral role in coming up...
Thanks TST, mvmac and iacas!

Are multiple entries allowed or frowned upon?  The sentence doesn't really finish in the original post...
Well, this was a mistake.  I told the wife I thought a head cover would be an appropriate first father's day gift, and then allowed her to read over my shoulder about this contest.  While I imagine I will be disqualified for not having a picture of me enjoying my R9 TP Superdeep, I did end up with several photos like this below.           Theodore, 8 month old son, with 9.5 TP Superdeep XS Alpha RIP.
Recently departed with a Bridgestone J38 10.5 with a Motore F1 S 65g at 45.5" to pick up a set of irons on trade. Turns out it may have been a good thing, as I was never reliable, often leaking balls off to the right, and just did not enjoy playing with it.

Went to golf store #1, bought a set of white grips. Went to golf store #2 a few minutes later, traded the irons the grips were for.   Now looking for green multi compounds for the new clubs so these have to go.   ~$84 plus shipping would help me recoup everything. $75 shipped via USPS work for anyone here?   Also willing to add cash to trade for green multi compounds.     Scratch that; see a site selling for $75.60 plus shipping with 13 strips of...
Somewhat concerned I may have been had by the golf shop. The issue is that I was looking for a playable set of irons when I bought these. Now it seems these have an incredible playability factor, but everyone I ask says I am a fool for taking them to a course instead of hanging them on the wall.
Mizuno USA says they have no information other than it is a JDM "somewhat" limited edition iron based on a relationship with Augusta National.  Due to a language barrier, I have no idea how to get in touch with an English speaking member of the Mizuno Japan customer support team.   Anyone have anything they can add?
Remember "par" means "par," not average.  Do not get too bent out of shape on scores, just look at it as a metric for development in the future.   Enjoy yourself, and kudos for having 97 posts and counting before every going golfing.  What gives there?
