What is on your list for Christmas?

We don't exchange gifts but I will likely buy something for myself. Been considering an irons change but not sure. Want to demo the Ci11's and hit the Cleveland CG16's again before I make up my mind.

I bought the CG16 wedges (52, 56, 60) and I am enjoying them very much.

It's too bad the Nike Covert doesn't release earlier. I liked how the 913 felt when I tried it out over the weekend, but I do want to test out the Covert before making a decision.

Definitely try out different sets, but I will say that I absolutely love my Ci11's. Its a shame so many people dismiss Wilson Staff without even looking at their stuff. The Ci11 Irons and the DX-i Hybrids and woods are fantastic clubs. My 5 wood is money in the bank.

It is nice that the Ci11's come with both a PW and GW, but you need to buy the 3i seperate if you want one (I did, because I wanted the full set, though it rarely gets used). But I think you will really enjoy them. Good luck with whatever you choose.

As for me, my family will be buying me PentaTP5's, as that's what I always ask for when they ask what I want. There really isn't a club I want that I don't have,  along with 4 pairs of golf shoes, dozens of golf shirts and pants. Its hard to choose anything golf related when I have 3 full bags of high end clubs already. 2 golf GPS's, a range finder. 14-15 dozen balls (9 PentaTP5's, 5-6 ProV1's). But I played 140 rounds of golf this summer, so balls are never a waste for me. I rarely use them, but the Penta's get chewed up pretty bad. I never use a ball for more than 18 holes before throwing it in to my practice pails.

I do have a Nintendo WiiU pre-ordered for Sunday morning, so i'll probably ask the wife for a few games for that.

Although I may check to see if WS makes a 2 iron for the Ci11's. I would like to have one. If they do, I may ask the wife for that as well. Hoping I see some ideas for cool golf stuff I dont have in this thread.

Already ordered my Christmas present - a SC Custom Shop Pro Platinum.  Also looking at the new Titleist 913 fairway woods.  I'm going to stick with my irons since I'm hitting them well and don't want to mess that up by adjusting to new ones.

Haven't had a chance to try it but I'm reading about the new Ping Anser driver. Anybody tried or bought one? Which shaft did you try, use?

Meh, to be everything they have done is a step back from the rapture. I liked the anser, but found there were better clubs with better adjustability options.

I may buy myself a few gloves or something, but I'm doing alright in the equipment department. The only thing that really needs replacing is my hybrid. Non-golf I'm making some upgrades to my computer. New RAM, replacing the optical drive with a hard drive, swapping the old one out for an SDD.

Dear Santa, I would like a pair of Adidas Puremotion shoes, size 9.5 in red and black I would also like the 5sk dvds I would also like the new Callaway RAZR Fit Xtreme with the Matrix 7m3 Black Tie shaft (I know you have connections) And lastly, an Edel putter Sincerely, Bill P.S. I'll totally have my wife bake you more of those cookies you liked last year.

I think I want to buy myself a Titleist 14 way cart bag but I don't know if I can convince myself to spend the money on something that has no possibility whatsoever to lower my scores.

Definitely golf shoes, some new golf balls (I still tend to lose a lot, so I play Warbirds/Gamers/Mojos), perhaps a hat or two to protect my ever increasing scalp.

I'm relatively new to playing again, having picked it up again this summer after not playing since my mid-teens (I'm 37 now, and it's NOT like riding a bike, I'm horrible at golf right now). I really don't want to ask for much in the equipment category, as I'm really not looking to have family drop lots of money on equipment I'll hit equally as bad as anything I have right now!

Yeah -  I need one of those for when I do backflips off 10 foot ledges on my mountain bike.  That way my relatives will know what happened to me.

    • Darts does have the advantage of being played in many venues where you can get a pint at any time during the game, as opposed to golf, where you only get the reward when you're done.  Unless you're in the US, of course, where many courses have a roving bar-cart to help you enjoy your round.
    • Furyk getting tight under Ryder Cup pressure could well be true or at least partly true. That critique seems partly true of the U.S. squad in general, doesn't it? Bubba's record is comparably poor at 3-8-0. Considering his dominance and winning percentage in stroke play and beat the field average, Tiger's Ryder Cup record isn't too stellar either. I'm just saying that Furyk (& Tiger too) may not have been used as smartly by the Captains as say, Luke Donald given his relative strengths and weaknesses. Donald tended to be sat for fourball where Furyk played both formats about the same amount, and maybe not with the right complementary partners for the foursomes. When Donald's relative approach game and putting (& birdie/bogie ratio) ranking slipped in 2014 he wasn't picked for the Euro team, because it seems his relative potential contribution (producing birdies) in alternate shot / foursomes had diminished.   Furyk Donald   SG-Tee SG-Putt SG-Appr SG-ARG Bird/Bog Bird+ % Bog Avd SG-Tee SG-Putt SG-Appr SG-ARG Bird/Bog Bird+ % Bog Avd 2016 -0.294 0.195 0.458 0.285 121 165 69 -0.583 0.060 0.645 0.449 82 181 16 2015 0.064 -0.024 1.081 0.513 15 83 8 -0.793 0.289 0.573 0.514 121 171 46 2014 0.121 0.091 1.175 0.408 5 97 1 -0.493 0.517 0.315 0.351 93 108 93 2013 0.023 0.092 0.950 0.323 25 78 14 -0.459 0.528 0.583 0.628 45 42 58 2012 0.225 0.423 0.830 0.275 9 145 1 -0.188 0.818 0.582 0.430 13 66 7 2011 -0.017 -0.160 0.643 0.190 77 147 32 0.040 0.870 1.094 0.273 1 4 1 2010 0.150 0.402 0.641 0.367 21 76 21 -0.506 0.870 0.661 0.464 16 109 9 AVG 0.039 0.146 0.825 0.337 39 113 21 -0.426 0.565 0.636 0.444 53 97 33 10-'13 0.095 0.189 0.766 0.289 33 112 17 -0.278 0.772 0.730 0.449 19 55 19 Furyk's record is horrible in the better ball / fourball format. I think that may be due to his relative lack of distance where it's harder for him to contribute much and bogey avoidance (his strength) is less important than making birdies. I expect Furyk's often been set up in a fourball pairing like Kuchar and Watson in '14 where the relatively short, but good putter / short game guy (Kuchar) was expected to complement the long hitter (Watson). Watson and Kuchar made many birdies, but still got smoked by two superior ball-strikers with average putting due to the better ball / fourball format. Rose's excellent short game helped that team in the alternate shot/foursomes format where their ball-striking was maybe less of an overt advantage than in better ball.
    • Yeah. Their products have been really solid. The 5C was iffy, but then again, the price was dirt cheap (relatively speaking). I may or may not be working for a company that supplies parts for them now, so I hope they get more popular.
    • It's all part of the deal. Especially when you are golfers like us (note my HI). Look at it this way. A couple of weeks ago I traveled three hours to our TST outing in Norwalk, OH and proceeded to barf on my shoes for 18 holes solid. Had one of my best rounds last week. It happens. Get away from it for a bit, get over it and when you come back you'll do better.
    • This sounds really really dull.  The kind of dull I'd really like to get used to seeing n my own game.
