Weird phobia: I have to find a broken tee for irons and hybrids off the tee box! Anything else throws the earth off its axis!
305 yard par four, cart path starts about 225...  Men's league night.  Foursome ahead putting, but I'm WAY safe.  Right?!?!  I hit 3W, as I'm no big stick and just trying to get to the right yardage for approach.  My slicing ball hits the VERY corner of the cart path on the fly, comes back across the fairway at an almost 45* angle and splits the guys at the flag shoulder high on the very long next bounce and clears the green by 10 yards.      I apologized with all...

Back to what I think was the OP's topic...   Beech Nut leaf tobacco.  I just find it relaxing.  Oddly, two of my playing partners chaw the stuff too?!?!  No spitting, etc...  I'd be a huge hypocrite to spit because of how bad I go off on sunflower seeds and cigarette butts laying around tee boxes and greens.    For some reason it helps me chill out.  And has for 25 years and going...
Thanks for the response.  Confirms my suspicions.  If it is too good to be true...
Anyone buy from this place?  Prices seem too good to be true..

I was paired with a 9 Vandicap that played mid-teens...  His partner was a 20 HC and was pushing him every hole.  'Vandi' tops about his fourth drive in a row trying to pound it 345 and his partner observes "You clubbed that one like a baby seal."    I laughed until the tears ran.  Timing is everything and this guy was Johnny Carson on that one. 
"Be the club!"   I'm definitely adding that to my repertoire of witty/sarcastic observations.
One of my playing partners has AP1's vs. my AP2's.  Easier to hit?  Yes, likely so.  Prettier to look down at?  No.  Decidedly so.    Mishits don't hurt with the '1's, while toed and thin shots (especially if it is under 40* out!!) will make your wrists tingle with the '2's.  BUT-  Hit one well with the '2's and you will walk taller and more confidently for a couple holes.  You can just feel perfection when the ball is struck well.    Get the AP2's.  I predict...
