Maybe it’s just me but there’s things on tour that drives me nuts, like pga live at the end of the round on Sunday with 2 golfers tied and 2 holes to play says coverage has ended or pga tour live not covering the majors! But thier ads say subscribe and “never miss a shot”! 
caddies constantly uncovering and covering clubs, and what’s the deal with a cover for the putter? It’s practically indestructible! Or on a par 3 handing the golfer a putter on the tee? 
and these crazy putter grips, brysons long handle putter? Lefties? There always on the wrong side of the ball, and dropping from the knee is so gay looking? And pink clothes? That’s a violation of man law! Yes wear the stupid pink ribbon to show you really care, “they really don’t” about Breast cancer! Or whatever cause they have pretend to believe in this week! But don’t wear pink clothes, and ugly caps, shoes etc! And marking the ball when your within 5 inches of the cup? Just tap out! Get it over with! Or the guy that has a two foot put and has to pull out and consult the book? Crazy Maybe it’s just me!

After reading your last few posts I'd recommend you find another sport to watch on TV. Maybe curling? 😀

You sound like one of two things. One a bitter ass man or somebody trying to be funny who really isn’t. Your posts all seem to be nothing but negative. Maybe find a different sport or a different place to post.

Man is entitled to his opinion!

dont get me wrong, I love golf and I love watching it! 
Is there really a logical reason for club covers, or just another product to sell? Dont you think a tiger or wolf cover is a bit childish? 
I don’t judge anyone, if it’s in the rules and works for you, go for it! 

Gimmicks are the scourge of the sportsman!

golf, fishing, etc. manufacturers are pimps and the pros are thier whores and the working man pays the bill!

It sounds like all you do is judge and dislike things.

Not just you. Those two things drive me bonkers as well. What about iron covers?? I’m not a real big fan of those either. Those, I feel, are unnecessary.

It sounds like you don’t understand capitalism. By reading your other posts, it sounds like you’re a troll who just comes to a forum to ask a bunch of excited rhetorical questions to rile people up. It’s not gonna work here. 
 

and yes, as you put it, I’m entitled to my opinion

Capitalism should not play on the weekness of the working man!

and I am a working man so I know!

i got most of my clubs a the thrift store the club I bought new was a 30 dollar putter!

im not a cupcake like most pros who hang out all summer at daddy’s or grand daddy’s country club! 
I give credit and honor where credit and honor is due! If they good there good! But talent is not thier doing, it’s a gift!

I don’t troll! I’m not looking for anyone to respond! that’s just my opinions and experiences!

    • 79 today for a differential of 5.8. Ball striking with the irons was better but my wedges and putting were awful. Couldn't control the distance or direction at all with how bad I was striking it for some reason. SG (compared to scratch) Driving: 2.49 Approach (>100 yds): 0.19 Short game (<100 yds): -2.66 Putting: -2.40 I also track the "Tiger Five," which is a better way of quantifying all the silly mistakes I make during my rounds. These were: Bogeys on par 5s: 0 Double bogeys: 0 Three putts: 4 Bogeys with 9-iron or less: 2 Blown easy saves (which I quantify as any nGIR that isn't in a bunker/deep rough or terribly short sided): 3
    • Very recently a thread was started here about PingEye2 iron sets and subject was some folk (experienced players) were seeking out these clubs to play AGAIN.  I have played Eye2 irons for many years, now on my second set as the first set was stolen.  As old as this design is, people have always got good memories and respect for these clubs.  and you can find sets for $100 or less ALL DAY LONG.  Buy a set, re-grip, and he's set up - to see if he likes the game.  With the difference from buying sets suggested, you have $$ for that driver and putter (these clubs will be more per each than a couple sets of Eye2s). and a bag. Be sure to put new 'velvet' grips on the properly fit clubs (according to the Ping site) and your son will have the best starter set he could find - and he may just play them for years to come.  You know, you're Ping.  PS - I had been planning on a new set of irons just because but when I tuck one up close from 100 or 150 yards, I forget about it.  I am shopping putters tho.    
    • Seconding this. Pretty much any OEM's game improvement or super game improvement from a couple model years ago will give him the performance and forgiveness he needs for a solid price. Just make sure you do your research on the ebay seller. I've had good success with it, but if you are more skeptical, there are plenty of second-hand retailers online.
    • It's up to the Committee to decide, in advance, and publish for the competitors, what the rules are around handicaps.  What any of us thinks is "right" should be overruled by the specific rules of the competition.  Now if I'm on that Committee, I would want to use the handicap as of the date of the match, but I'm not the one making the decisions.
    • Thanks for that info. I recently injured my left knee (I'm a righty) and tried to continue playing with a brace on and then added a cortisone shot. I finally wound up with gel injection which does help with pain relief except that my brain doesn't want to fully shift weight back ro the left side. The injury is not structural, it was a re-injury of a 6 year old meniscus tear that I had 2 months of intense PT on and had not been a concern since until post-Covid return to play. My golf swing stops without releasing my body because of weakness and lack of stability. So I tried a foot flare on my left side, between 35-40 degrees. A much smaller flare on right foot, and I opened my shoulders a bit to accommodate. In practice swings without a ball it feels much better and I can swing through. Does that sound right? I will try it at the range because I am stumped getting "through" the ball otherwise.
