  1. mike72712 added a post in a topic Titleist 905S - impressions on an oldie but a goodie   

    I just bought a 905R off of eBay, and am EXTREMELY pleased.  I also play a ~'99 TM Burner Ti and an ~'00 TM Firesole, and now rank them 1, 2, 3 respectively.

    The 905 has given me probably 25 yards in my drive, and I didn't lose any accuracy.

    Out of deference to Scotty Cameron ;-)  ...

    . . . (only much bigger) right under the side stamp....

  3. mike72712 added a post in a topic How often do you use your 4 iron?   

    In my main set, I've replaced my 4 w/a hybrid, but in my travel set, I hit my 4 pretty often.

    The 3 is pretty hopeless, however...

    I have several handguns, and have a concealed carry license, but don't carry.  I do take one on road trips, however.  I also have several shotguns (prefer pumps, but have one automatic).  I enjoy going to the pistol range, but also really like trap and skeet.

  5. mike72712 added a post in a topic What did you buy on your last trip to the golf store?   

    I've raided eBay with several used clubs to fill out a spare set, plus a midsize Titleist staff bag, but yesterday at Golf Headquarters in Rogers, AR:

    -- A pair of Footjoy Contours
    -- Black Widow ball retriever
    -- Black Widow spikes

    I then ordered another pair of the same Footjoy Contours in a different color from TGW.com.

    Greetings from NW Arkansas
    Hi all --

    I've played off and on for 20 years, and have just started playing again a few weeks ago after a couple year hiatus.  The bug has hit pretty hard, and I've been playing 3-4 times a week and have been upgrading some clubs.

    I play most often here in NW Arkansas, and also in St. Louis.

    I look forward to checking out all the info on the site, and getting to know people around here.
