What Did You Buy on Your Last Trip to the Golf Store?

:titleist: 915 D2 Driver with 9.5 loft and a 50 gram Diamana shaft - tested it thoroughly beforehand and had it professionally fitted, including adding four layers on the standard grip and adjusting it to full draw (D3) on the Titlesit SureFit settings . Expensive, but a good investment, since I get on average 30 yards more with the lighter shaft and lower loft (translating into a lower, more penetrating trajectory) than my previous old stallwart, a 913 D2 10.5 w/ standard 60 gram shaft. Walked out the pro shop a happy old gilmore :beer:

Finally upgraded my irons, at the behest of instructor who said, dude, just get new irons dammit, paraphrasing. Titleist AP1s. Will go from using 1990 irons (Titleist DCI 962) to 2014 irons, two and a half decades of iron tech advances in one go. And I just put new grips on the old irons, oh well. I still think it's the indian, not the arrow, but grudgingly admit the arrow is pretty darn important.

I like the AP1s. Easy to hit and launch.

I buy golf balls from Walmart mart.  I actually fear going into the Edwin watts and pga superstore here.  I’m afraid of what I might buy.  That said, last time I got a used 50 degree gap wedge. It has been excellent.

Went to the LV Golf Super Store. Bought a tennis racquet for my Granddaughter's birthday.

Her and her boyfriend are gravitating away from golf, and taking up tennis. I have a cousin who is a very good tennis teaching pro, who is going to work with her. 

Personally not happy with her change, as she was just beginnig to break 90 on a regular basis from my tees.

Did the same thing quite a while back for another Granddaughter. That was also the last time I was in this, or any other actual "golf store"....

I went in for a replacement head cover and came out with a $100 pair of shoes and 4 new grips for my wedges.  Forgot to get the head cover.  ☹️

    • Well, apparently they weren’t printing my tickets...  
    • I tend to like it. In most cases, companies changed simply to match what was already happening.  People would, and always have, taken “sick” time for your aforementioned fun things, and still come to work while sick. Trying to verify and manage sick time, especially the one or two days when someone is (or claims to be) sick enough to want to stay home, but not so sick as to warrant the visit to a Dr, is a nightmare.   Now the employee can use their PTO however they want, and the company benefits from an easier to manage system.   Just for fun....the day most often called out for being “sick” is the Monday following the Super Bowl.  Imagine that.      Yup
    • I disagree, and both companies I have been at so far have had the 1 large PTO bucket, and I can't say I've really ever seen someone in the office who was so visibly sick that they shouldn't have been there.  Plus, for people who rarely get sick, the separate sick and vacation buckets would just mean they would either end up accumulating weeks upon months of sick time, or lie about being sick so they could actually use those days, especially if their employer has a "use it or lose it" policy where you can't roll unused days over to the following year. You just said you hated that policy of 1 PTO bucket, but then you said given the choice between those two policies you would choose the 1 PTO bucket. That doesn't make sense. Clearly the 1 PTO bucket must not be that bad of an idea if you would choose it over having separate vacation/sick buckets, right? I have the 1 PTO bucket and I think it is perfectly fine. When I plan out my vacations and other PTO days throughout the year, I make sure I leave a couple days unused in case I get sick, and then if December comes and I haven't used those days yet, I take random Fridays or Mondays off in December since we can't roll any unused days over.
    • so did I - was the classic gym rat with the weights before taking up golf.  Lots of power not too much precision in the beginning.   Over time I've changed workout routines to still get in strength work with weights  but I've incorporated  lots of body weight work, cardio, and flexibility work.   As a result (and I'm sure golf equipment advances help)  I'm tons more accurate.  had my best drive over the weekend that measured 320 in the heat and firm conditions.   I usually carry about 280.   In all I've been working out since I was 26, I'm 56 now. So I think weights should be a part of an overall fitness plan
    • I work for the government, and our sick leave policies are more liberal than most, I would imagine. We can use sick leave for any doctor/dentist appointment. We can also use it for any illness or anything like that. This includes a kid's appointment or illness. We don't have a bright line policy on medical documentation for using sick leave, except for extended leave for childbirth or something similar. I think it's in our supervisor's discretion to request some sort of documentation, but I've never personally had that happen. I can't imagine that happening for taking sick leave of less than 3 days, though. I hate this policy. I think it's shortsighted from management. People don't want to use their days off for being sick; they want to use it for fun things. I think it leads to sick people working more often, getting other people sick, and thus making the office less productive. If the choice is between 3 weeks vacation + 1 week sick time, or just 4 weeks PTO, I would obviously take the 4 weeks. But I would also be coming into work sick more often.
