Wow, I could fill a couple of pages easily. Forgive me for being influenced by recency but here goes: @billchao and @boogielicious for being solid all out citizens of TST. Both content and suppor

Thanks man!  I haven’t been playing golf much for one, and the other reason is I just kind of realized that wasting a bunch of time arguing with strangers on the internet isn’t all that fulfilling.

I'd like to give a shout out to @boogielicious and @ncates00 for providing feedback in my swing thread to try and help me improve. Also, shoutout to @Antneye for having great taste in hockey team

BTW, appreciate you warning everyone about woes of turning 50... nose hair explosion and all. Lol.! Right around the corner for me so I got that to look forward to... 😆

Don't forget ear hair. Maybe @ChetlovesMer doesn't have that problem?

Ugh, nope. I have that problem too. Turning 50 was like a cruel trick of nature. Nose hair, Ear hair, even hair growing on my nose. Not to mention can't read without reading glasses. That was another curve ball.

I enjoyed the company of @Bonvivant as my cart mate on Sunday at Whispering Woods. His knowledge of golf history, sunny disposition, and positive attitude in the face of adversity was uplifting. 

He also had the chore of keeping me from breaking etiquette with where I happened to park the cart.  On one hole I made a last minute move to steer the cart so that the windshield blocked the near-gale force winds and sideways rain. @iacas did not like that as the tires were on the grass instead of asphalt.

It was my pleasure Carl. There are far too many people with a sullen attitude, especially when on the course and I was happy to share a cart with someone that could smile, even after a poor shot, gale force winds, or torrential downpour.

Nose hair helps stop Rona.

Just stay on the paths near greens and tees and the whole hole on par threes.

Then the super won’t be mad. 😡

At my age, I can grow my nose hair to look like that in about an hour... maybe 2 tops. 

I'd like to thank @CarlSpackler for finding a silver lining in growing older.

Huh? Can you repeat that?

Sorry. I'm letting my ear hair grow out too. 🤣

This compliment goes out to @iacas and @Bonvivant.

I really enjoyed the back and forth discussion you two had in this thread: 

 

I think @Bonvivant was arguing uphill, but it was a great discussion. Nice job, you two. 

It's great when folks can have a discussion without getting pissy. ... Seems to be a dying art these days.

Thanks @ChetlovesMer. I've just got wonky opinions though. Things like walking only unless medically unable, enforcement of 3.5 hour pace, etc. etc. I know that I am in the minority on a lot of things and know that there are plenty of issues with my opinions, so I try to not get mad about it ever.

I guess I should add a compliment myself. To @iacas for always making me think about things, and pushing back. Cheers!

Those aren't the same kind of opinions as "marketing is irrelevant" or whatever some of your sub-opinions were in the ball debate. 🙂

I'm just glad you take it as banter or keep in mind that we're disagreeing about f***ing GOLF, not something that actually matters. Plus, arguing can be FUN. 😄

I grew up with a guy that would argue with a telephone phone and win.   With my wife, I've learned to just roll my eyes.   She said it helps to straighten my back.   I must have the straightest back of anybody I know!   :-D

I wasn't saying it was irrelevant, just responding to the comment that "every commercial has a pro" (or multiple), when I've seen plenty that just have some guy instead of a big name.

I've gotten much better about it in my year or so here. And I definitely agree that arguing can be fun. That's how we form, shape, and change opinions over time. If everyone sat around in echo-chambers then they wouldn't be doing themselves any good.

And one last shoutout to @Slice of Life, @ChetlovesMer, and @saevel25 who are super cool folks who I'm glad I got to meet in person and become friends with at the August outing.

And you've seen plenty with the big names in them, too. C'mon.

You're wrong, and let me tell you in obnoxious multi-quoting fashion why… 😉

    • Not sure about middle schoolers, but I found out at some point early in my golf playing that the high school I went to was notorious for cheating at golf.  Supposedly the coach had players cut a hole in a pocket so they could drop a ball.  I didn't play in high school, but I know who the golf coach was when I was there and it wouldn't surprise me if he did that. I didn't realize there was a reason to not clean one's clubs.  After a shot, I'll almost always wet then dry the face of a club, and I'll check if a face is clean before I hit and will give it a quick wiping before hitting if I think it needs it.  I thought that I did was far more common practice. 
    • No clue how to repair something like that, but I am wondering how a club gets a dent like that in it. That is a serious crater.
    • I’m not an expert on this subject by any means but I would say no it can’t be fixed. Caught my attention because I have the g400 3h and it’s a great club. 
    • I know this is a rare bird and there may not be any help other than trashing the head after pulling the shaft.  On a whim, I found a Ping G400 4h real cheap on the 'bay ($30 plus $15 so I am about $ 50 in).  I knew there were some serious scratches on top, but did not really look at the photos to notice it has a major dent on the top near the toe side.  It is on the way here, so I don't have any actual photos to share.  Here is the photo from the auction.  My real questions are - can the head be repaired (I have been researching this and there is not a lot out there as it relates to golf clubs)?  If repaired, does it become a "non-conforming" club per USGA rules, I don't think it matters as I am not planning to enter any tourney's any time soon.  This may be a grand adventure as I have read that applying heat with a heat gun, followed by Dust-It type spray (CO2) to super chill will get the metal to move.  Will have to see....
