I picked up some yellow Slazenger balls a couple of weeks ago, but haven't played them yet. I was out of golf balls (used up my last 6, hadn't purchased any sleeves since I started playing again). I haven't gotten to try them out. I wanted to get some orange, but didn't see any on-sale while I was out, and a "quality" ball doesn't mean as much to a crappy golfer as a "cheap" one, because I know I'll burn through them (lost 7 last time out). I bought them because a couple...
So, to kinda-of bring this back, I got a round in with my Mizunos, and I really like them. I'm not sure on the hybrid just yet, as I only had about 3 hits with it. I definitely need to get that second wedge though, and the 45-degree PW doesn't work well from just off the green (ran a lot of short shots to the back or off entirely).   Right now though, I'm really honing in on getting a new fairway wood. Like I mentioned, I'm not a driver person. I picked up a $15 3+ wood...
I got a Wii U a few weeks ago because of the ridiculous trade offer Target had going on (got the Wii U with 2 games, plus 2 remotes, all for under $150). I got it to co-op with my sister and brother-in-law when I'm at their house. We've almost beaten New Super Mario Bros. U, just have to go back for the big coins and do the extra level, then we can do the shorter Super Luigi U. I'm thinking about picking up MK8 because I'd get the $12 off at Best Buy, plus they have a deal...
My dad had paid for a pre-order for it as part of my graduation gift. It was $65. I decided to cancel the pre-order and get the money back in store credit. I then spent $60 of that on Best Buy's Gamers Club Unlocked membership (no tax is charged on it). The GCU membership gives you $20 off new games for 2 years. So, I got Watch Dogs for $48, not $60. It came out to $52 after tax, and I used the $5 left from the pre-order to get it to $47 out of my pocket for the...
 I don't think I've ever done that with a game before--at least, not that I can remember. It's just that I'll almost get my cost back in trade-in, and I wouldn't play Watch Dogs until the DLC started coming, so I might as well trade it in--I could use the credit to get something like Tropical Freeze or MK8.
Yeah, I have it on my One. I've finished the story, got through it 2 or 3 days ago. I'm wrapping up the Achievements, then probably trading it in sometime over the weekend. The drinking games are the only tough thing about the game, though I enjoyed the story and the game as a whole. I'll trade it in for the $44 Best Buy says it'll give me (paid $47 for it), then I will likely pick it back up at a much-later date, when all of the Season Pass DLC is out and the game is down...
Yeah, that's what the X2 Hot Deeps are. I just wanted to see what the word on the street was about that model, and if anything else was recommended.
So I've finally gone and purchased some irons today. I got the Mizuno JPX-EX set, with 3H-PW clubs. I got them ordered from Mizuno at Golfsmith, and they're going to have the +1" shafts, with the hybrid having an Orochi black shaft and the rest having steel. The onyl concern I have on that front is that another store in-town (which closed before I got home) might have had them for less, so I am going to head over there tomorrow and check on that.   Otherwise, I now have...
 Thanks, mine's Saturday, in Computer Science, what's yours? Also, if you use any intelligence, the answer was definitely 0. 2008 was the last semi-meaningful season, and it was a dud at the end. I could run you through every major transaction since Alfonso Soriano signed, explain to you how I knew it was moronic at the time, and give you the proof, haha. I think I've highjacked this thread enough though, so I won't turn it into a baseball rant.
 Stop saying such good things. You're going to make me impulse-buy them. The plan is to go to Golf Discount--our only actual golf specialty store--on Sunday, with my brother-in-law (he has med school stuff Friday and I have my graduation Saturday), so hopefully they're still up there after that. No worries, I'm not one of those "there's always next year" fans. I know the level of suck, and that it's 2-3 years before it gets better. I've had the hope beaten out of me.
