Site search was definitely a bit of a downgrade, yes. I haven't looked a lot yet but even things like being able to specify searching titles only would be nice, and I'm surprised it's not there. Maybe it is but hidden with stuff like "title:ping AND G30" or something like that. Which would still be lame…
Yeah, well, back in the early days I'd apply updates as soon as they came out. Since the site sees quite a bit more people and traffic and whatnot these days, I may wait a day or two after it's out to make sure everything is copacetic. Plus I got to use the word copacetic.
Our tee boxes tend to be hard as a rock so I'll often go through a tee for every drive. If I'm not using a driver though I will usually just knock up a bit of turf. I don't use a tee for irons and I rarely use one for my 3W. When I do I just pick up a tee bit off the ground.
Heck if I know. I think @natureboy tries too hard to fit everyone into a mold, as in "that was a Pelz method" or "that was a Stockton putting stroke" or whatever. In reality, though you can loosely define some characteristics, virtually everything in golf has a lot of wiggle room for "customization" and "personality."
