You Know You're Addicted to Golf When…

When you start having clubs shipped to work because the wife complains, and then people at work start to notice.

You buy, sell, then re-buy, then re-sell the same club -- just to be sure (I did this with the Nike SUMO2 driver after forgetting how bad it sounded).

You put a wear mark in the carpet from indoor chipping (hasn't happened yet thankfully).

You get one club that you decide is a keeper and then you have to re-arrange at least 2 other bags as a result of the addition.

You're out on your back porch in the dark at 5:30 AM changing the swingweight on your 5 iron  because you've got a tournament in 3 days, and you just had a revelation that MAY add 5 yards to your distance. They say that admitting you've got a problem is the first step in curing it.

The 19th Hole is your favorite Sports Bar. You just got to be around golf as much as possible.

You know you're a golf lunatic when you're in the pro shop on a course you've never played before and are admiring a $13,000.00 set of Honma Beres clubs that you just know would improve your scores and are wondering how to get the wife convinced, too....  😉

That's beyond lunacy!

When you are in the process of buying a new car and the first thing you check is whether your clubs and push cart fit in the trunk.  Otherwise you can go no farther.

Who would do such a thing? :whistle:

That's so true!  Why I ended getting a 4 door pickup.  It hauls a foursome for a long golf weekend in comfort and zero issues with storage space.

My personal faves from an earlier thread.....

You regripped your bbq utensils with cord grips...

Your wife asks you if you want to play around and you go get your clubs out...

What's crazy about that? First thing I look at.

    • This season I was consistently shooting in the high 80s. Played some of my best golf and I am really happy with how straight I am hitting the ball right now. The ONE thing I would change in my game is simply the height of my drives.    I hit about a hundred balls today on trackman and with the driver I am getting average clubhead speed of 120 mph, launch angle 7 degrees, 268 yds carry. It’s bugging the hell out of me to see these low bullet balls, and despite trying all this year to deliver more loft (I’ve had a few lessons trying to fix just this issue alone), I just can’t seem to do it.  I currently play a stiff shaft Taylormade R1 set to 12 degrees loft. I’m thinking about possibly experimenting with one of those super lofted (16 degree) drivers. Has anyone ever tried this, and if so did it actually make a difference? In advance I just want to also say, yes, I agree an equipment fix in this case is a bandaid for a larger problem. But I’m also just trying to have fun with my game and if buying a higher lofted driver helps this problem, I’m happy to take it for now.  
    • Day 129.  During the workday, went to the next door room to hit some 6-iron shots;  indoors, off a mat, into a net, real balls. 
    • Day 320 Superspeed workout, then some mirror work on takeaway/backswing, and finally hit some balls with 7-iron. Hit the ball well today. Still searching for a good feel/thought to take on course for backswing piece. Current one is okay, but I think I can come up with something better. 
    • Update - I sent an email to Arccos support about my Caddie Link order, again, and received this prompt reply (in part): "... We did begin fulfilling pre-orders at the end of September and then the first week of October our manufacturer informed us that due to COVID they are unable to acquire the needed materials to complete further devices for the next couple of weeks so shipments have halted for the time being. Shipments of the devices will commence the first week of November. We greatly apologize for this delay and issue and once they send yours out we will be sure to send you tracking and status updates."
