    Those are nice.. enjoy them !!  I went to Golfsmith and like you hit the AP2's, VR and Ping i15's and I almost went with the set you got, but went the way of the Pings.. didn't hurt that they were $200 discounted.. But, I have yet to receive them yet... 3 weeks ago.. ughhh.

  2. Hobie added a post in a topic Anyone else kick themselves everyday for not picking up golf when you were younger?   

    Not at all.... Life happens and there were other hobbies I had and were more into. As I started to get a little older, those hobbies were no longer as enjoyable as they once were.
    Picking this game up came at the right time....

  6. Hobie added a post in a topic Fairway woods: What type do you use?   

    I will either use my Cobra 3w or my Cobra Hybrid 3 Baffler.. and other than the degree of loft, the faces between the two are really not that much different in size..as Walfice said, anything larger than that at address is a bit daunting.

    I have been on the lookout for a decent pair of sunglasses to use while on the course, but have not been able to find any decent pair that won't put a dent in my wallet.
    For those of you who wear them, what recommendations do you have for me...

    Squaddie...if you want a friendly course to play, there are several actually..Being on the west side as I am, Bear Creek has the Presidents course that is very "new player" friendly. Also, a little more challenging, also on the west side, Cinco Ranch golf course. It is still new player friendly.
    Let me know if you'd like to play a round when you come into Houston...

  9. Hobie added a post in a topic golfclubdemo.com anyone ever try it?   

    I have tried them twice..Played a set of Callaways and Mizunos. The entire deal is great..You get them FedEx within 2-3 days and can play for a good 5 days with them, plus they eat the shipping back via FedEx with a prepaid,preprinted label.
    For the cost of it to see what set you like, it's a good bargain...Try them out, you will like what you see.

    Cobra S9 II
    well today I received my Cobra S9's. I have played with the Callaway X-20 and demo'd the Cobra's, both felt good, and I was undecided on which one I was going to purchase.
    Well after alot of reading and an hour at the range demo'ing the Cobra's, I decided to buy these.
    So my question to you is this, have any of you played with the Cobra S9 Irons. I have the Speed LD driver and it hits really good.
    Any feedback is greatly appreciated...

    Hello from Katy, TX.
    Hey guys...Just a little intro. I picked up the game again back in April '08 after about a 10 year layoff. I enjoy it alot more now than I did back then.
    I stumbled across this site and have been in the shadows for a while until I joined in.
    Anyways, ya'll have a nice place here and I look forward to being a part of it...


    Ps..if you are in my part of Texas, west of Houston, look me up. we can play a round.

    I prefer 10:00 on the weekends and if I am taking a day off from work and can get a round in, 11:00 is my choice..

  13. Hobie added a post in a topic Slow Golfer....how do ask them to speed up....   

    Well I agree to the ready golf theory. Usually where I play, there are marshals out there that keep the pace of play pretty much on time, but if I had to actually tell someone I was playing with, I would be nice about it at fist and say that he needs to pick up the pace. I have a few other things to say, but being a public forum, it's best they stay with me..
