A cruel joke

11 posts in this topic

It's a cold, cruel world we live in when you buy new irons, wait over a week for them to arrive, and they come in on a Monday.  THIS HAS BEEN THE LONGEST WEEK EVER!

If anyone cares I just picked up a set of 712 AP2s with KBS C-Taper S+ (125g) shafts.  I've hit the setup a few times, but I've yet to play a round with them.  My wife is trying to talk to me, but I'm barely listening to her as I keep glancing anxiously towards the garage.

And it's supposed to rain this weekend.

I feel your pain!  And you can almost guarantee unplayable rain all weekend.  Sometimes I swear that God hates golfers!

Sweet sticks.  Let us know how they play!

I just called the golfer's depression hotline to alert them to this situation. I believe they called it a level 5 scenario that could involve big butterfly nets and guys in white coats.

Rain? I'll take that. How about 40 inches of snow here in Connecticut instead?? That's what I consider "cruel".....

All you guys that live in a cold and snowy area i don't know how you all do it?

Is there a special golf depression pill that is on the market, if not maybe the drug makers should look into this could make millions.

Take it once a day until the snow and rain lifts!

K-Troop I have waited a month for my new sticks can feel your pain RD call last night to say they where in but had to wait for today to pick them up talk about a bummer call. And really on valentines day, what to do be home for my wife and get points. Go pick the new sticks up after work and never hear the end of it for not being home or leave work early because I have a virus, you know the one "the need to pickup new club virus". Help!

haha.  I feel your pain.  I ordered some new i20s and they were set to arrive on V-day.  I slyly convinced my wife to celebrate v-day yesterday instead, then my clubs arrived a day early.  All I could think about at dinner was getting home to hold my irons.

I'll be heading to the range tonight though

Seriously ktroop, how much empathy do you expect living in HAWAII?!?! I played 2 days ago, but it was two weeks before that, and I thought I was going to lose my mind. I don't know how you folks in really cold/snowbound areas do it...

Yeah LOL get out there and play, rain or not. I was out yesterday and we still had snow in the bunkers. Twice I had to dig for my ball in it.

Club ho'ing. Lots and lots of club ho'ing.

I swing in my office daily, I usually get to work around 10 minutes early and I take practice swings to work on tempo and my timing/hip slide. I putt in the living room a lot.

I'm pretty sure my local range opens in March. I, along with many other golfers, will be celebrating like 10 year olds on Christmas morning. I just learned there's a driving range with heated bays about 10 minutes from my office, but all the snow we've had (and are going to continue to get) aren't helping matters...

    • 1 Iron Golf Clubs
      So...finally broke 90 the other day....would have been better but for cored and sanded greens. Never struck the ball so well. Have been trialing the "Bobby Clampett" Impact Zone training, and focusing on a point forward of the ball...working a treat so far and my irons are way more solid. Time will tell whether it is a flash in the pan or a good move, but the range session are very encouraging. Played since xmas at all?
    • Donald Trump for president?
      Notice this comment ;)  Yea but he's been doing that since he's been in office. At least he hasn't wavered away from his agenda for how ever long he's been in office. He's not going to pass it. He's going to try.  Trump doesn't have an agenda except to his own ego. He doesn't care about America. He doesn't care about the American people. He's uses to screwing as many people over as possible. Heck, why not add Washington to the list.  For me I think Trump just sat back and thought, "you know what I can win the presidency." Then he's going about doing it. It's all about vanity nothing else.   
    • How Do You Decide Where to Play Golf
      This is a more difficult question for me to answer than it once was, so I selected "Other".   If I play locally, then I only have a couple of choices.  But this year I rejoined the Men's Club at my old home course, so that has now become my current home course even though it's a 2½ hour drive (about 150 miles).  I also play several other courses just as I feel like it, no one course by price because I can get varying deals at 30 or 40 Colorado courses with my Avid Golfer Passport.   A lot depends on how far I feel like driving, it may depend on when my brother drives down from Idaho to play for a few days, and it just depends on what I feel like.
    • Donald Trump for president?
      Isn't Bernie doing the same thing?  He's leading a witch hunt against big business and the wealthy.  Do you really believe he's going to pass a 90% income tax on the wealthy, outlaw guns, provide better free healthcare, increase the minimum wage to $15+ country wide and provide free college to everyone? They are both snake oil sales people appealing to the lowest common denominators of their parties.  Bernie may be more sincere about his beliefs, but that could just mean he's crazier too.
    • Jack or Tiger: Who's the Greatest Golfer?
      But that stat goes directly to Tiger's lack of longevity (to this point in time).  If he hadn't had the issues that he's had, he wouldn't have missed all of those recent starts.  I don't see how you can diss Jack for being competitive over a longer period, and then still making many starts (which attracted more money to the events just by his presence) after his competitive career was past.  I don't know what the numbers work out to age for age to the point when Tiger was no longer starting in Majors, but that has to be a more telling number.
