Been in the same league for over 20 years.  Course we played at (at the time) had a par-3 right next to the clubhouse.  Water on the right, big sloped hill on the left.  Once everyone got done, we'd all pitch in a buck and play closest to the pin since we were the last group of the night.   One week, guy hits first, pulls it left up on the hill, everyone watches it bounce down off the hill, hit the stick, falls in the hole.  Nobody else got in that week.  :)
I'd go to Home Depot and buy a Kohler toilet seat just to confuse the hell out of him.  Worth every penny of the $15 it would cost just for the laughs, depending on his sense of humor. 
I just made the switch to a Mac in the past couple of months.  Couldn't be happier.  I work from home and don't really need the portability of a laptop so I ended up getting a new Mac Mini.  There's a slight learning curve but I look at it more of a "breaking Windows habits" type thing.  Usually just basic things but I've yet to come across anything that either I or Google couldn't figure out.   I do still have to run Parallels and have a virtual machine for Windows (for...
I'm a big fan of Evernote.  Honestly never thought I'd use it as much as I do, but it seems like I use it almost daily.  Nice that it syncs between all my devices (desktop, iPhone, iPad).  Probably use it and my password management app (Keeper) the most of anything.
Pretty sure it's the real Brandel since he just mentioned Erik and the site by name on Golf Central (and this thread).
  Before I found out about Pure Grips, I was a full cord user.  As much as I play and as much as I'm at the range, they just ripped up my hands too bad.  Keys for me are to make sure I clean my grips regularly (again, I use Pure Pros) to keep the oils/sweat off and if it's hot and humid and my hands are in sweaty pig mode (which really happens most at the range) I keep cold water with me.  Pour some water on your hands...sweaty hands fixed.
I definitely understand the "sweaty pig mode", especially if I'm at the range on a nice hot and humid day.  Which to be fair, is exactly the set of circumstances in which I tried out the DTX.  Hot, humid, sweaty and at the range...so it probably wasn't a fair test.  My friend who has the DTX is a "sweater" (big time) and he loves them.  I think it's just one of those personal preference things.  I'll admit I'm not a huge fan of change so if it wasn't my Pure Pro's it was...
I'm a HUGE fan of Pure Grips and have used them for years (Pure Pro).  I tried the DTX, and like jackieMoon, I for some reason found them slick.  And before Pure Grips I as a corded grip user.  I was very shocked.  Put I put the DTX grips on a buddy's clubs and he absolutely loves them.  Look exactly like the OP's.   Still couldn't get me to use another brand of grips, that's for sure.
I don't even understand why this was a topic for the media.  Not only was it the "right" thing for Phil and Rickie to do, it was also the smart thing for them to do.  One of the advantages of playing in the final group is, for lack of a better term, knowing what you need to do.  In this case, Phil and Rickie had the advantage of seeing what Rory did.  For instance: both Phil and Rickie went into the 18th knowing they had to go for eagle.  If Rory's tee shot had found...
My friends and I take our golf trip the 3rd week in July every year (we're in the Cincinnati area) for 20+  We usually go somewhere a couple of hours away; Lexington, Indy, Louisville, etc.  You being in Dayton know how hot and miserable it can be.  So why am I not as excited as you for the Polar Vortex next week, since it is the 3rd week in July?  Because my idiot friends decided this year would be a great year to go to Naples, FL for our trip.  So instead of us having...
