Aye, there's the rub. Not everyone is interested in Salma hotness vampire or not. Nor would everyone be willing to go meet Phil, Paula, or Rory. There are those that would be willing though.   Sadly, I fear that the local golf store would not be able to draw in a big big name such as Tiger, Phil, Rory, or Michele Wie to attract the masses...   But! Possibly getting with Bridgestone, Cobra, Callaway, TaylorMade, or whomever and they bringing their truck out for a free...
Trickyputt you've kind of got the gist of what I was saying. Using Michael Jordan as an example to pick his brain about basketballs and my game in particular is not exactly what I was thinking but it's close.   If you've got a golf oriented store and you're wanting feet in the door and dollars in the till, then it stands to reason that getting some famous or semi-famous players in the door for a meet and greet could help business. That's my opinion.   They don't even...
I've checked this thread out off and on since it started and I'll throw some thoughts in...   First and foremost I think customer service should come in at a top priority. Example: my wife and I occasionally pass by the perfume counter in one of the department stores in our local mall. There's an independent contractor that has a circuit of stores that occasionally shows up at that store. She remembers us as customers. We might have gone 6 months or more between seeing...
Man, that sucks. At least it's still visible... awhile back there was that al fresco painting that was irreversibly destroyed by a nun that tried to restore it. Same thing... only worse. Maybe. It depends on your perspective and religious beliefs I guess... it can be seen at the link below... or just search for nun destroys...
I like #42. It's the answer to "what's the meaning of life?"
I remember several years ago there was a change in MLB designed to speed the game up... it had something to do with pitching or pitchers or something like that... it sped the game up a bit but apparently the game has evolved for the worse now. I haven't watched MLB for a long time because the games are too long... among other reasons. I'm all for shortening the game.
I'll use Yelp. If I'm somewhere that I'm not familiar with, I'll use it to get an idea of what's around me. I won't trust the 5 star reviews just like I won't trust the 1 star reviews. I'll compare reviews from Yelp, Amazon, Google, Urbanspoon, TripAdvisor, Facebook, and Bing to try to get a balance of how a business really is... some people are impossible to please and will note it online in several paragraphs that their soup was cold or it was raining and they weren't...
Yes, Cipher has it right. The average golfer drives their ball just over or around 200 yards. The golfers that drive their ball 275-300 yards are few and far between. I'm NOT saying that they aren't out there because they are but most golfers that think they drive their ball 280 yards aren't measuring their drives and could be mistaking 220 yards for 280.   I know my drives go between 180-220 yards. I've walked the distance off using my smart phone and a GPS. I'd love to...
Ryunin, if you're worried about lack of distance off the tee, consider moving up a set of tees or two. Playing from the yellow senior tees or the red tees will make the course shorter for you, give you a better opportunity to get onto the green in fewer shots, and more importantly, have fun.   My drives average right around 200 yards carry... sometimes more, usually less so I'm right there with you... teeing it up and then heading 180 yards to make my second shot.......
Early this spring I went to my local Golfsmith with the intention of replacing the 20 year old Chinese clones of Ping or Callaway irons that I had. I was looking at the Burner + irons and hit the 6 iron fairly well in one of their bays. The price was right but unfortunately, they did not have the irons in left hand.   I was able to purchase a set of Burner 2.0's for the same price that they had the Burner + irons on sale for.   They're 1 generation newer and I hit them...
