One of my good friends was hit last year by a wayward 3 wood shot from an opposite. It hit him right next to his left eye and crushed his eye socket. He had to have reconstructive surgery and almost lost the vision in his eye (which would have cost him his career in Coast Guard aviation.... gotta have vision correctable to 20-20). His face still looks a little funky almost a year later. Being hit by a ball is no joke!
Playing with a strong grip can work well (look at Zach Johnson, Boo Weekley, David Duval) I experiment with it sometimes on the range but haven't taken it out to the course. I am usually impressed with the ball-striking I get.
I got spanked, I shot a 110 a couple of months ago with about 46 putts. Could not roll the rock on those slooooooow greens! I want to go back now that my hcp has dropped dramatically and show that course what I can really do... I will go back next year. By the way I played the uphill short par 4 twice and almost drove the green both times, the 2nd time my ball was about 3 feet off the green to the right. Still only made par, ouch.
Yes, I have them and love them. The BOA system is the bomb. $99 for the original style on TGW while they last, you can't beat that. One of them pinched my left big toe a little bit while they were breaking in, but they broke in and my toe developed a callus - no big deal. Any classic styled leather shoe could do that. I have verified that they are indeed totally waterproof and for me the BOA system is the best. I wear all my casual shoes really loose (loose enough...
I usually roll 3 balls across the green to the fringe to get a feel for speed before putting. Often I will find an empty corner of the green and stick a tee in the ground and do 3-footers to the tee until I can hit it 10 times in a row. Gets your focus down to that certain spot. Then I just mix it up. Long putts, short putts, medium putts. My goal is to never 3-putt from any distance or break.
You need The Spin Doctor wedge! http://www.thespindoctor.com spin range balls back 50 feet!
I collect beer bottles, I have a whole room filled with nothing but beer bottles, tap handles, and other beer junk.

The Odyssey chipper has a 37° loft which is the same as a 7 or 8 iron. If you can move your 7 or 8 iron with a putting stroke, why waste one of your 14 clubs on a chipper when that iron can serve the purpose? The only advantage I can see with a chipper is that it doesn't have any backspin-inducing grooves. I really think you'd be better off using one or more of your existing clubs to chip with. I very rarely am on the fringe - when I miss the green, I'm usually...
First off, congrats on a fun round! Glad to hear someone having an exciting round and taking the time to share all about it with the board. I know when I am in the mood to share I must have had a great round so I am sure you did too. But now that I've said that, seriously, losing 7 Pro-V1s? There must be some ego involved in putting them in play with your handicap... I am a high handicap too... And I have never bought a dozen balls that cost more than $20. I would...
