What did you get for Christmas?

Recommended Posts

So what did your wife/husband/parents/kids/self get you for Christmas? For those of you who posted in the 'Santa Claus' thread, did you end up getting what you were hoping/asking/planning to get?

I got a new driver (early present to myself a few weeks ago), New Decade Multicompounds for all my clubs, a $50 GG gift card, and and 4 boxes of balls.

Does trading in 2 clubs for new ones count? If so got myself a new Cleveland Launcher DST with Crossline mids and a Cleveland Launcher DST 5 wood and forgot to have Crossline mids put on. I guess I will be heading to the golfstore soon. Sorry Taylor but the clubs I traded in were a barely used TM rescue club 19* and a brand new TM 09 Burner.

I received a uPro GPS unit and a gift card which will be used for a new 5 wood. I also received 13 movies. Tomorrow I head to my parents to hopefully get another gift card.

Golf wise - a pair of Loudmouth shorts, a Loudmouth hat, a couple nike dri-fit shirts, a frogger towel, a few brush tees and a box of prov1xs that I bought myself.

In addition I got about 9 different seasons of shows between Seinfeld, Family Guy and Prison Break.

My wife gave me a gift card for 20 cart rides at my course.  I walk most of the time but they'll come in handy on some of the 90+* days this summer.

I got mostly golf stuff this year... A dozen NXT's, a dozen DT-Carry, a dozen "Flop Tight" XL's, 2 dozen Wilson "maximum", a bag of 60 mixed balls, a nice Titleist cabretta glove, a couple of plain polos, and two golf novels. Oh yeah, and a pen that looks like a golf club. And a $20 certificate at Lipoma Firs.....

Garmin G3 GPS and a set of rain gear.  Both should come in handy when I try to play a few rounds in Seattle in mid-January..... good thing the GPS is waterproof!

    • It is and it isnt. For the most part Id say it isnt. At the end of the day it really is as simple as calories in and calories out BUT because that piece of cake is not particularly nutritious nor does it take very long to digest you tend to need to eat more cake to say full which tends to promote overeating. You pretty much have to decide to stay hungry for a while to compensate.  
    • When did I ever say I was talking about them using to RUN FASTER. Never. If the ball flies further guess what. The club was moving faster. THEY GOT FASTER. Yes steroids have a multitude of benefits for an athlete but for the sake of this discussion I didint think it was relevant to list every one of them. For sure they benefitted from the faster recovery aswell as the increased performance.   Dont tell me about my logic when its obvious you havent even read what Ive said. To quote myself: "Also keep in mind were not talking about going from Bubba to Arnold here. Theres a healthy middle point for optimal performance. Tour players just do not look like athletes(on average)." "Youre always going to find exceptions" You are uninformed to put it nicely. 450*10 does not happen all the time outside of powerlifting gyms. Especially not for a guy weighing 165. His estimated max is around 600-640 lb. Please dont get started on the way estimations work. The american record is like 700 for the 165. Either way he is very strong both in relative and absolute terms and its a very impressive lift. Ofcourse there comes a point where if he bulks up too much it wont help thats exactly what Ive said. At no point have is said tour players should look like bodybuilders. Infact to quote myself again: "Strength = speed potential. Speed athletes are not inherently going for size its just a byproduct of getting stronger and faster. If it was we would have meat balls like IFBB pros breaking records at everything speed related. The whole bulking up too much is pretty much a myth for natural athletes anyways."
    • Yes Daniel Im is a CP-ish player with kind of an inline downswing, he likes the way "swinging left" with his body feels. He does hit up a little with the driver. CP is not optimal for clubs over a 6 iron....typically. It's just a much easier pattern, easier way to swing and hit all the trajectories, especially with today's equipment. Hogan didn't have the left arm as far out as Mac wants it and Snead hit pull draws. Like I just said CP isn't good for the longer clubs, Mac never played a tournament going CP, he went with CF fades.  It's also a complicated pattern, lots of sequencing and movements have to be in order and most importantly you need a lot of speed to do it functionally. I could make the case Hogan had more CF pieces than CP pieces. Anyway, I agree with what @iacas has been posting. Mac's info isn't the answer to the golf swing, it's an attempt in the right direction but there is better and more functional information out there.
    • Oh, gosh, on the range tonight, I discovered that my address position was too far away from ball, and I had lowered my hands at address. I was setup for failure. Made  a few minor changes, and was hitting fairways high again. Now I can determine whether the shafts fit on some new Tour Edge woods - I fear the regular is too soft. Another winter project - shafts. I want to be done with clubs.
    • Personally, if i got better range of motion, I would not care if the muscle was actually longer . Good point though
