Stealth driver. Probably won't be seeing it for a good while yet by the sounds of it.

Cool. 
I'm curious. Were you able to hit it first? If so, where? Did you get fitted?

Id planned on getting a fitting.

However when I looked through the shafts/specs there was only one that suited me from previous history. I think this setup will give me a lot of confidence.

I felt that even if i did get a fitting with all the other shafts, I wasn't prepared to pay extra for an upgraded shaft anyway. Given how expensive this driver is already.

There was also a couple of other little reasons I ordered without a fitting. Everything weighed up and it was a no brainer really. That was a month ago, and I don't have buyers regret yet, so that's a positive thing 😅

Cool, again.

BTW - Can I ask which shaft you chose? 

Every year all the new drivers come out and they are all slick like elephant snot. If I was infinitely wealthy I'd buy two or three every year.

Yeah very expensive these days. Luckily I am very picky, otherwise I'd be broke.

Anyone else in the midst of a Golf kick right now.

I mean I can't get enough of it at the moment.

Finally ordered a copy of Lowest Score Wins last week and thought I should really head back over to thesandtrap.com and start arguing about shit I am not qualified to argue about.

:whistle:

    • Science has come a long way since the 1940s.
    • Here are some thoughts in no particular order: Golf trips 2x a year - I have no problem with this. For a couple who has no kids in the house what is the big deal (unless we are talking 2 week trips to the UK)? If you guys are retired, aren't you taking trips together? If not, start. You worked all your life to have the time and money so enjoy it while you still have it.  Golf all day and drinking is the norm - that is a red flag. I don't mean to judge, but this seems excessive if its the routine. Most retired guys I know play 2-3 times a week and this would never fly health or wife-wise. These guys I am talking about don't rush either, they show up, warm up, play, have lunch, etc.  It is an experience, not a hurry up and get home (like when I was young with kids) rush round.  His shopping is his me time - give him the grocery list and put that me time to use. It sounds like there is some room for more WE time with all the hobbies.  You live in a new community - you really need to meet some people and get some activities going for your own self development. If you feel like you are waiting around for hubs, well that might be a decision point. My suggestion is seek some healthy balance or re-evaluate the situation. I would suggest the communication route first, seeing a therapist, but probably not taking it to an online forum.  I am not sure what else to say here. My wife and I work full-time (kids grown) and we don't have these issues because we spend plenty of time doing everything else together. She does have a professional life that she enjoys and has plenty of her own goals to accomplish. When I went on my golf trip without her, she told me to have fun and not to worry, she had plenty to catch up on and enjoyed not having to entertain me the whole extended weekend (3.5 days - 6 rounds). She has expressed that when I do retire, she needs me to stay busy for her sanity! I guess that means more golf, part-time job, volunteering, etc. Currently I play about twice a week but if I was retired I would play consistently 3 times a week and still have plenty of time to be a wonderful husband - forty extra hours is a lot of time to fill! 
    • LIV has hit some marks. They are playing the correct sport for OWGR points. Clubs and balls and all that Not that these guys were all that interesting in interviews before LIV, but it certainly hasn’t gotten any better.
    • I bought some of these tees back in June along with the practice pack for hitting into a net. I haven't lost or broken a regular TFL, but I did just break the practice tee which certainly has a lot more swings on it. I emailed TFL and they said they would send me a new one for free even though they usually only guarantee the regular tees but not the practice tee. I appreciate their customer service.
    • Obviously, you complain about the "unfair" consequences of the actions you knowingly took, which were pretty much blatantly obvious in their impending application.
