    • And I thought the thread was about solar charged golf carts... now here come the politics.  I guess I should re-read the OP, it must have been about energy grids? Off topic, since you brought it there, there are several very big companies creating alternative solutions as we breathe.  Some of the same big companies that built your touted outdated power grids.  I bet you believe global warming isn't real either. But I digress... any further comments from me will be about the OP... solar charging golf carts.
    • Yes, I've heard that your drought's back has been "broken". Reminds me of an interview that David Letterman had with Johnny Carson not long after Letterman took over the late night post. Letterman asked how things were going out there in Cali, and Carson replied, "Well, things are getting back to normal. The mud slides are putting out the brush fires!"
    • If you're hitting a pitch wedge 125 it's probably a modern set that tends to have about a 45 or 46 degree pitch wedge. That's a 10 degree gap to get to your sand wedge. Get yourself a a gap wedge ( 50-52), and a lob( 58-60). Check out diamond tour golf. They have components or pre builds, good quality and a lot of choices for about 40 bucks a club.
    • This is part of the problem. The "solar advocates" only compare that technology to itself. They don't dare compare solar to charging using the grid or burning "so called" fossil fuels. Why? Because it can't compare! Neither in initial cost or efficiency. This could be part of the solution. I've been waiting for the day when a solar energy outfit could say "We're not only cheaper than fossil we're also more efficient!" Someone mentioned government grants in connection with using solar. If it's so great, why do you need a government handout in order to use it? Shouldn't it sell itself?
    • I would amend your statement to read "Combine alcohol with metal sticks and elevated platforms and LAWYERS and this is what you get! Why do you think insurance costs so much?
