What is on your list for Christmas?

We don't exchange gifts but I will likely buy something for myself. Been considering an irons change but not sure. Want to demo the Ci11's and hit the Cleveland CG16's again before I make up my mind.

I bought the CG16 wedges (52, 56, 60) and I am enjoying them very much.

It's too bad the Nike Covert doesn't release earlier. I liked how the 913 felt when I tried it out over the weekend, but I do want to test out the Covert before making a decision.

Definitely try out different sets, but I will say that I absolutely love my Ci11's. Its a shame so many people dismiss Wilson Staff without even looking at their stuff. The Ci11 Irons and the DX-i Hybrids and woods are fantastic clubs. My 5 wood is money in the bank.

It is nice that the Ci11's come with both a PW and GW, but you need to buy the 3i seperate if you want one (I did, because I wanted the full set, though it rarely gets used). But I think you will really enjoy them. Good luck with whatever you choose.

As for me, my family will be buying me PentaTP5's, as that's what I always ask for when they ask what I want. There really isn't a club I want that I don't have,  along with 4 pairs of golf shoes, dozens of golf shirts and pants. Its hard to choose anything golf related when I have 3 full bags of high end clubs already. 2 golf GPS's, a range finder. 14-15 dozen balls (9 PentaTP5's, 5-6 ProV1's). But I played 140 rounds of golf this summer, so balls are never a waste for me. I rarely use them, but the Penta's get chewed up pretty bad. I never use a ball for more than 18 holes before throwing it in to my practice pails.

I do have a Nintendo WiiU pre-ordered for Sunday morning, so i'll probably ask the wife for a few games for that.

Although I may check to see if WS makes a 2 iron for the Ci11's. I would like to have one. If they do, I may ask the wife for that as well. Hoping I see some ideas for cool golf stuff I dont have in this thread.

Already ordered my Christmas present - a SC Custom Shop Pro Platinum.  Also looking at the new Titleist 913 fairway woods.  I'm going to stick with my irons since I'm hitting them well and don't want to mess that up by adjusting to new ones.

Haven't had a chance to try it but I'm reading about the new Ping Anser driver. Anybody tried or bought one? Which shaft did you try, use?

Meh, to be everything they have done is a step back from the rapture. I liked the anser, but found there were better clubs with better adjustability options.

I may buy myself a few gloves or something, but I'm doing alright in the equipment department. The only thing that really needs replacing is my hybrid. Non-golf I'm making some upgrades to my computer. New RAM, replacing the optical drive with a hard drive, swapping the old one out for an SDD.

Dear Santa, I would like a pair of Adidas Puremotion shoes, size 9.5 in red and black I would also like the 5sk dvds I would also like the new Callaway RAZR Fit Xtreme with the Matrix 7m3 Black Tie shaft (I know you have connections) And lastly, an Edel putter Sincerely, Bill P.S. I'll totally have my wife bake you more of those cookies you liked last year.

I think I want to buy myself a Titleist 14 way cart bag but I don't know if I can convince myself to spend the money on something that has no possibility whatsoever to lower my scores.

Definitely golf shoes, some new golf balls (I still tend to lose a lot, so I play Warbirds/Gamers/Mojos), perhaps a hat or two to protect my ever increasing scalp.

I'm relatively new to playing again, having picked it up again this summer after not playing since my mid-teens (I'm 37 now, and it's NOT like riding a bike, I'm horrible at golf right now). I really don't want to ask for much in the equipment category, as I'm really not looking to have family drop lots of money on equipment I'll hit equally as bad as anything I have right now!

Yeah -  I need one of those for when I do backflips off 10 foot ledges on my mountain bike.  That way my relatives will know what happened to me.

      How does the bank lose money? Is inflation that bad that the 30,000 euros of interest is not enough to cover it? Is it because the bank no longer has that money at their disposal to invest for a potentially larger return on their investment when compared to a mortgage?
    • Share a Fact from Your Job
      paradoxal bank fact : in our banks in france if you take a mortgage of 100 000 euros for 20 years at 2,5 interest rate you will probably pay close to 30 000 euros of interest. this seams huge to customers. nevertheless the bank might loose money or have à max a 200 euros margin per year. the only way we make money is on the mortgage insurance policy part and getting a long time customer in the bank.

      thanks. I'm doing that so I might do some horse trading.
    • Myrtle Beach in early March part duex
      Okay I think you may be a little confused on your location...You said that you are staying at Holiday Sands North close to the Boardwalk.  Your Hotel is centrally located in Myrtle Beach.  A lot of people not familiar of the area mistakenly think that "North Myrtle Beach" is referring to an area in the Northern part of Myrtle Beach.  Actually it is a separate city that is located a good ten miles from where you are staying.  The closest "North Myrtle Beach" courses to you would be the Barefoot Resort courses which are about 13 miles from you and are considered higher end courses where you will be paying probably around $125 per round to play unless you book a package deal or play with a member.  The next closest North Myrtle Beach courses which are mid-tiered and a little more price friendly that may seem to be what you are looking for are a little farther north into North Myrtle located probably about 15 to 17 miles from where you are staying.   The closest courses to where you are staying include Myrtlewood, Pine Lakes Country Club, River Oaks Plantation, World Tour, and the Legends courses.  All are probably right within the amount of travel time that you are looking at.  I would second the earlier poster that you contact @bnlongdriver.  Tell him (Brian) what you are looking for and he will set you up nicely.  I would definitely avoid GolfNow for anything related to Myrtle Beach.  Very few courses down there work with Golf Now and the few that do are lower tiered courses that you probably wouldn't want to play as there are many better choices for the money that you will be playing.  Looks like you will be going right as the peak golf season is starting to get underway so last minute deals, although probably available, will be a bit more difficult to come by.  However, if this is the route that you want to take, again I would contact Brian as he has the ability to get a lot of very good "48 hour" rates.  If you go ahead and contact him now and let him know that's the way you want to go, he will be able to keep you in mind and as the time of your arrival nears will have a better idea of what to find you.
