I've been gaming the Mizy MP59's for the last two years, and have been eyeing the MP69's for quite some time.  But today, Mizuno gave a sneak peak of their new MP4 Muscle Backs on their blog/forum.  They are gorgeous!

David, I haven't seen any specs on them... But I believe they are indeed a size similar to the 59.... Which makes them better for hacks like me!

If anyone has the details, please share...

I always like me some clean looking blades. Can't really tell but it looks like they thinned down the topline a little, which is to my preference.

Sorry, I'm not 'digging ditches' with the shovels you play with!

Fair enough.  I'll keep on digging ditches with Lee Westwood, and you keep on "gamin" with Luke Donald!

By the way, I'm going to be digging some ditches on the beach tomorrow afternoon ... what will you be doing???

So you're not buying the idea that he magically went up 15 strokes in handicap in the last 6 months? ;)  Smart bet.

There are very few scenarios where the word boner isn't funny...

Members caught lying about their handicap index will be viewed as dishonest scoundrels and will be dealt with in an appropriate manner.

Appropriate, as Bukaki Island only accepts guest that fall inline with this label.

    • Notes from the Wisconsin trip: Long game is as good as it has ever been. I lost 2 balls over 6 rounds, which is incredibly good for me. I'm struggling to think of a time when I hit the ball better, and I don't think I have for that many rounds. The challenge is going to be keeping it up, because... Short game and putting needs a lot of work. It makes sense, because I've been working a ton on my long game to get it better. That worked paid off, but I need to get my putting and short game better. For putting, I need to work on speed control a lot more. I also need to focus more on less face movement when the stroke gets longer. I also need to work on bead, because I miss my line on putts inside of 10 feet way too often. For short game, I need to find a chipping technique that works. I need to review some of the COVID practice stuff on chipping to get that technique better. My distance control with chips needs to be better. Pitching was not good at Sand Valley, but I think that's more due to the turf than anything. Still could use some tuning up there. Practice ratios for me for the next couple of months will probably be 15% long game, 50% putting, and 35% short game. Unless something bad rears its head in my long game, which is absolutely possible.
    • This is a very stupid post. @boogielicious pretty much explained to you why it’s stupid. Moreover, your logic in keeping the name, because you hope something offends you, so that you won’t make the same mistake, is some of the most far-fetched BS attempt at logic I’ve seen. It’s like you’re trying to compare the name change to Civil War museum artifacts; these are not the same thing. I’m all for preserving history, even dark and stained history, to do what you’re advocating. The museum is a place of history, and if done correctly, does not glorify nor honor past sins, but does remind us of the past wrongs and the progress we’ve made. However, changing a ball club’s name is not the same thing. You don’t keep a factually incorrect, ignorant, and offensive and derogatory term as your ball club’s name so you can “remind everyone of past wrongs so we can avoid them.” Again, faulty logic and piss poor analogy (which you poorly drew in the first place). 
    • So because some wayward explorers thought they were in India, we should just call native Americans Indians even though we figured out their mistake? And then name a team after that word because it’s okay to compound mistakes? And even if the people that are being called that find it demeaning and offensive just stick with it cause it’s a pain to change names? That is just plain dumb. It’s a baseball team name, not a history lesson on the mistreatment on native Americans.    Maybe we should call them the Cleveland Broken Treaties. Now that is history. 
    • To me, it is absurd to think that every idea made 100 years ago is a great idea and should be maintained today.   
    • To be fair, the courses we played did not really have much of either. Although I'm sure you found both... 😛 Number 4 was going to be "putt your ass off," but that's not really a game management thing. @iacasis by far the best putter I've ever seen. Golf is a lot easier if you're making a couple of 30 footers each round, and your gimme range is legitimately 5-8 feet, haha.  There was far more separation between our short games and putting than there was between our driving and iron play.
