King Cobra MB/CB combo back in Jan. Diamond black finish. Dead sexy. Absolutely unnecessary... Lol. 

Good chance they will see use again either this weekend or next.

I have a set of the F9 One lengths. I haven't bonded with the GW. It feels too long. I tend to duff with it on pitch shots. I noticed that Cobra still has the standard F9 clubs, so I bought a standard length GW to the specs of the rest of the set rather than get a new set of clubs. Maybe this should do the trick. It's a lot cheaper than a new set considering I like the rest of the set.

I got bored and antsy about a month ago and bought a 2016 mizuno EZ driver from second swing. Never been hit. Good deal.I went against my loose policy of getting fitted. I definitely would have been fitted if was going to drop 5 bills on a driver though. The driver is working well so far

Got one of these bad boys!

Tried it out on the ninth green between some downpours. Really looking forward to using it!

Isn’t ‘lifting’ the turf a bad move?

My course has a terrible issue with people not repairing their marks. If this tool works well I want one.

Lifting good.  Stretching bad.

No.

Talk to my former head greenskeeper, Scotty.  He says to stick a tee in and "lift" the center of the ball mark upwards.  He says to never put the tee near the perimeter and "stretch" the grass and turf inwards.

Yeah, no.

I don't know what drugs he's on, but that's the opposite of what every superintendent I've ever known says to do:

Popping up ball marks is how you get the little brown dead spots that take longer to heal than un-repaired ball marks.

So not arguing here, but the video says this...

and the superintendent at my old course had one and it worked great, but I think it does lift.

Yeah it says that, but the blades basically "push in from the sides" and then the bottom plastic area compresses to flatten the turf.

It works very much like we're taught to push in from the sides, but it does it from four sides at once, and then it tamps down.

Here's the videotape! It looks like it pushes it up from the bottom?

It moves from vertical and pinches in to about 45°. It doesn't "pop" the ball mark up in the middle.

Superintendents use these things all over the place. If it popped up the middle, they wouldn't. Another one is this one:
