I've been wanting a new driver for some time since mine came with complete set I bought when started golfing. All this talk had me stumble over to global golf where I found this guy for $159 brand new before 15 percent off code that also worked:
New TaylorMade AeroBurner Driver Men Right Hand, 12 degree Loft, Includes Headcover
Shaft: TaylorMade Matrix Speed RUL-Z 50 Graphite Regular Flex
It should arrive in time for my round at Champions Gate. I'm excited!
I have a rule. If I'm put with strangers, I check out their cart. If they have a boom box and will blasting Shaniah Twain or P-Ditty Combs, I ask the starter to reassign me.
I play golf in part for the peace and quiet - I don't want the noise.
At the gym, lots of people workout with headphones on. But, on the course, headphones don't work very well. Also, it appears good manners don't work very well either.
This argument is a waste of time - you guys don't disagree with each other. @newtogolf's original objection was because somebody ridiculously suggested that lasers slow play down for us amateurs. As far as we know, it's likely that same guy also thinks GPS slows down play for us amatuers - which is, of course ,equally ridiculous. :)
If I have a pin sheet or coded flags, I can get within 2 yards of a laser on just about any hole you want to point me at. My Garmin has a green view that allows me to drag the pin to the approximate location on the green, and that replaces the distance to the center on the display. I don't use it much because it's not usually necessary. I can usually estimate within 2 yards of a laser reading, and that's closer than I really need it.
The pros get accurate pin sheets each day, so they could place the pins exactly using a GPS like mine.
