Just purchased the following for post surgery golf being that I am a USAF Veteran I thought they would be appropriate.  

Titleist T400 irons. I haven’t gotten them yet, but they are on order!

Bought a US Kids golf set and pink hello kitty balls for my daughter.  It's for her 3rd birthday so i'm just hoping she likes golf as much as her dad.

Not the golf store, but Craigslist.  Found an ad on CL for "golf club making equipment" yesterday.  Ended up getting a Maltby loft/lie machine, a 6" cutoff saw, buffer with a hand full of extra buffing wheels and wire wheels, a couple different measuring sticks, a ferrule turning jig, an odd length & lie measuring tool, some various wedges including a couple unique ones (one with a milled face but no grooves, one beryllium).  Also got a Craftsman workbench with a thick butcher block top that had all kinds of stuff in the drawers; brand new but fairly old grips, leather strips, several rolls of grip tape, sanding belts of various grits, tons of steel wool.  Also a 30 gallon drum that had probably two dozen other clubs, mostly persimmon woods that had been restored by the old man that had all the equipment.

Got all this for $200.

I was talking to a guy a while back that sold those old woods. He said that he's sold a bunch to people that will refinish them then polyeurethane the crap out of them and turn them into taps for their bar. The rich fellers around Pinehurst can afford to have a bar complete with taps in their houses.

My last trip to an actual golf store was a small purchase with two putter grips and a bag of tees.  Last night, however, I spent $600 online on clubs I do not need and only purchased because the prices were too good to pass up.  I'm sick in the head.

I couldn't turn down $300 for a complete set 4-AW. When I bought them the guy told me that it was funny because they had just gotten those irons back the day before from a guy that had bought them a week ago. He said that the guy that bought them buys new clubs quite often.

Now I can't blame my bad iron shots on crappy irons. The old ones really are crappy, the 7 iron has a nice dent right in the center just from hitting balls with it.

Walked into the golf store today to see if they had a driver box I could have and walked out with yet another glove (plus the box).  I think this is the 8th glove purchase in 7 months.  This one feels really nice though, the leather on the bottom is textured almost like a microfiber towel.

Last trip to Golfsmith was a big one: Bought a new Taylormade Superfast 1.0 Driver (10.5 Loft with Stiff Shaft), also picked up a slightly used Callaway x-series Jaws 52 degree wedge, the old one with the mack daddy grooves. Later that night, i got on ebay and found a matching 56 degree wedge. Now on the lookout for the 60 degree wedge!

Anyone have experience with these wedges?

    • This dood is incredible - there's a quick one of him doing this to a ball midair    
    • I want to compliment Game Golf's customer service.  I wrote to them about the issue and they had me send them some log files from my computer.  From these, they were able to upload my three rounds that went missing.    One course appeared to be missing graphically from the desktop version (GPS tags appear, but not the course imagery).  I told GG support about this issue less than half an hour ago and it's already fixed.   I'm still going to try to upload my next round via mobile to see how that works.  I might have to force myself to go play tomorrow or something   Overall, I'm impressed with how GameGolf handled this.  
    • I regret that I quit playing golf when I had kids.  I did buy them a cheap set when they were young. My daughter was never interested. My son was interested but time, money, general sense of family obligation, and fear of slow play kept us from playing more that a couple times per year, particularly after a golf buddy moved away. My son has atrial flutter, a heart tachycardia problem, that made him quit playing soccer after his sophomore year of high school.  Three ablations were not able to fix it and he relies on medication to control it now. He decided to play golf instead of soccer and now loves it. He is much better than I am and will play golf at an NAIA college this fall.  This finally got me back on the course over the last 3 years and he is my main playing partner for now. A younger friend of mine has 4 kids under 12 years old.  The older 2 are into golf and I end up playing with them sometimes when I play with my friend.  The younger 2 also occasionally play or at least ride along. We usually play an adult/kid scramble on Sunday nights when the course is not crowded.  It can be a lot of fun as the kids aren't too bad, but certainly not young Tigers either. Beginning this week I am playing in a Saturday night 2 man scramble league with one of the kids my partner.  I don't even know which one it is yet as I just agreed to it blindly.  I hope it is the 10 year old as he a slightly better swing than his older brother.  It will be interesting to see how that works out. I sometimes wish I had my kids on the course like my friend does.
    • The paparazzi got some photos of Woods heading into a hospital or something yesterday and seen putting "significant" (in their words) weight on injured leg. Hope his recovery is progressing smoothly.
    • I started golf with professional lessons around the age of 11 and have been golfing ever since.  Most of the stories with kids involved is of me.  However, I was also a rules marshal in my home course when we have junior tournaments there so have seen some kids who have become very impressive amateurs and even one or two who have become pro's. Regarding clubs, see if they can use the same clubs provided it doesn't affect their swing.  If not, either consider getting shaft extenders or look at clubs where you can change the shaft with a tool and then replace shafts as necessary.  Not cheap, I admit, but might be necessary.  Definitely consider the younger child getting hand me down clubs from the elder child provided the specs fit.
