Hi
I just have to tell someone. I'm going to the US Open Friday and I'm so excited I can't stand it. I just picked up two tickets and the guy sold them for face value. The average price on Craigs list is 250 for a grounds pass.
I've been bummed out since last Friday when I let two tickets get away. They were also face value. I was at the driving range and this guy couldn't go Friday so he was selling two tickets for 180.00. I told him I was 100% sure I wanted one but I had to make sure my buddy was going the same day.
Well I called him back ten minutes later and he told me he had to sell the pair.
I don't ever remember being so disappointed in my life. I was beating myself up all week for not buying the pair. We'll I didn't make the same mistake twice. I bought the pair without a second thought.

All week, I've been checking Craig's list but most of the prices are outrages ! Then I found one where the guy was selling them for cost. I sent him an email around ten A.M but I didn't here from him until eight P.M. I really thought it was a long shot. He told me he got 33 emails and I was the third one he got. The first guy stood him up and never showed up. the second guy never replied. Then he called me ! I can't believe I got them. I'm not a drinker but I'm having a vodka and tea right now to calm down.
P.S
Please don't take this post as gloating. I'm just so happy I have to tell someone!

Stay far away from the merchandise tent! That place is AWESOME, I spent over $300 in 20 minutes last year.

Man, not to jinx you, but I really hope the weather holds up so that you can make it there and enjoy a bucket list event! Right now, things do not look as good as everyone would have hoped, but you never know! Mother nature may kick it into overdrive and send out the derecho as fast as she churned it up!

    • I play steel in my 4 and 6 hybrids (dont play a 5 at the moment). The 4 is TM burner with a OEM steel shaft but the 6 is one i built on the cheap as an experiment. Its an Acer XDS, fitted with an Appollo steel shaft. Its the cheapest one they do and its spot on. You can get the Appollo Shadow lite are Acculite for decent prices through Nordica golf 
    • It's not an informed opinion but I have tried a DG s300 in a 5 wood head and found that the overall weight was very heavy. I was able to get the swingweight down to d2 but the whole club felt like I was swinging a mallet. Since the DG SL is about 20grams lighter ( lower ball flight) or AWT ( Mid Ball flight) I would opt for either of these, bearing in mind that the shaft would have to be parallel tip hosel .370 to fit the Adams Pro .370. ( I could be wrong here but hopefully someone that knows more will pitch in )
    • Hiya All I've been Playing Golf for: 10 years - with a 5 year kid break My current handicap index or average score is: 18
      My typical ball flight is: pull/pull draw
      The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: pull draw Current swing thoughts are -Posture don't arch back and neck -Start backswing with right ass cheek -Just rotate on the way back, don't sway to the right -downswing - rotate body, rotate, rotate...ROTATE! -impact try to drive club face forward (impact bag feeling) not flip Not all at the same time, of course! Videos:      The hand signals show the ball flight on DTL. This is a 6I This is a selection of shots, I've not given you the highlights real. Shank happens once every 20-30 Push every 15-20 over draw every other shot.  
    • Probably this,   No specifically, but the overall confidence level is probably low.  
    • This I really agree with.  Really   As it happens I went for the trackman certified guy.  Thanks for the all the thoughts, At lot of them made a lot of sense. Not sure I really got an answer into the fundamental question -How do you know if the advice you are being given is just plain wrong? I, for one, don't want to waste a couple of months being shown the wrong path.  It's a difficult game and weeding out the good advice from the bad is tricky.  The best I've found is to look at how an instructor fixes a "problem"  If they talk about fixing the movements that lead up to the problem, the previous links in the chain, then they get more points.  If they just fix the problem without referring to anything else, then they lose points with me.   Thanks for the help all. Now to get to the range again!
