My Ping O-Blade putter. It's pretty beat up from being abused when I was a youngster but my dad bought it for me and it's been in my bag ever since.
Love you dad and see you at the great gig in the sky someday.
It's a no for me.
Is there any other sport that makes noobs take an exam before playing?
The question is probably routed in the misplaced elitism that pervades this sport.
It would be a shame if the sport was the preserve of the conforming few to the exclusion of others.
I'm very well aware of the rules and the etiquette required, but if I was forced to take a test first I would not at all be interested.
Having a spoon in the bag is a must for every golfer IMO.
Sometimes driver just doesn't go where we want it to and a three wood just gives you that confidence to hit a good length tee shot without the need to play a provisional!
