I would advise against voluntarily going to places like Chuck E. Cheese now ... in a few years you'll have to look into a membership.

(Unless, of course, your son requested it ... then by all means)

Cute video!  (And nice banjo playing!!)

Cute little guy, enjoy every moment, my daughter turns 10 next month and it still feels like just yesterday I was watching her take those first steps (that happened on Christmas). Wish I did more videos also but better late than never.

Enjoy every single minute!! It goes by SO fast, take the time to just sit back and enjoy the moment. My son just turned 8 and my daughter turns 13 next month... I miss those days of just being able to pick them up and snuggle with 'em.

Just think back to whatever you were up to at that age, then multiply it by the internet.

If I can help it, yes! :-D

He watches me practice my swing all the time, hopefully I'm not ingraining bad habits haha.

That reminds me...2:04 to 2:12. What kid has that kind of patience!?

Congrats! Three things: 1) Expect your kid will probably be the best thing to ever happen to you. The first three to six months will be trying but after than it gets exponentially more rewarding - there is nothing so simple yet pleasing as getting a big smile and hug from your little one. You'll have some occasional nights when you'll get no sleep, your kid will cry for hours, and you won't be able to figure out why or figure out a cure. It's going to happen, so just be patient with it because it will pass - think of it like an hour in the dentist's chair, not your favorite time but it will be over soon. 2) Take more pictures than you think you'll need, regularly back them up onto a big flash drive or portable hard drive (or get an online storage service) and keep them stored in a fireproof safe. 3) Keep an online journal and record all of those milestones and quirky, funny things that kids say and do the same day they occur - you'll never be able to remember more than half of them and will regret how much you forget in later years unless you record it somehow. An easy way to do this is just to keep it in one or two draft e-mails to yourself under a Hotmail, Yahoo mail, or G-Mail account and just keep saving it as a draft after every update. Here's a few examples from my journal of my daughter's quotes: [THUD!, from the bathroom] - Q: Are you alright in there? A: OWWWWW! I fell off the toilet and hit my head so hard I can't do math any more." [age 4]. Q: What's your favorite thing to do? A: I like to go hang gliding. I think I used to hang glide when I was two. I used to play tennis when I was a baby in my crib until I hit myself and cut my lip [age 3].

    • Willett's brother tried to be funny, but he was way offline. Bad effort in dry humor.. He should've not written anything like that. It's just going to make things harder for his brother and I'm sure Danny W. is gonna hear it from the crowds.
    • Willett's brother is not a part of the Ryder cup team. Willett made appologies: http://m.bbc.com/sport/golf/37500790
    • I like it. Especially compared to nearly all past US Ryder Cup kits. Actually before I dish out too much praise, do they have a huge Stars and Stripes flag emblazoned on the back?
    • I would say it depends on what club you're talking about. For drivers I would say that the best performing drivers of all time have been made within the last five years. Aerodynamics, material science, and the proliferation of launch monitors and data driven design have resulted in improvements across the board in distance and forgiveness as of late. I know that I personally saw a decent improvement on my G10 when I switched to a G30, in that I gained between 10 and 15 yards without sacrificing accuracy. This is on the high end of what aerodynamics can provide though, simply because higher swing speeds receive a greater benefit from decreased drag. Depending on the individual you may not see much difference so long as the driver itself was made within the last ten years or so. For irons I would be inclined to say that the main difference in the irons of yesteryear and the irons of today is forgiveness. The irons made today are much easier to hit than previous irons, simply because they aren't as drastically punishing on mis-hits as the old blades. The PING Eye2 irons seemed to be the first "widespread" GI iron that sparked the trend towards irons that were easier for the layman to hit. That being said, I found my s55 irons (their "blade" from several years ago) to be more forgiving than the Eye2's. Based on that and observations from other clubs I have hit I would say the average golfer would be best suited by irons made within the last 10 to 15 years that are in good condition with sharp grooves. If you play muscleback irons though, there's pretty much zero difference between modern "true" musclebacks and those of yore, though the current muscle-cavity irons (like the iBlade and MP-15) will likely be at least a bit easier to hit than the older blades while maintaining a similar style.  Wedges are the only thing that I would argue the "latest and greatest" provides a tangible benefit for. The reasoning for this is entirely different however, in that it's based solely off the condition of the grooves in older wedges. As wedges grow old, and get used, the grooves wear to the point that there becomes a noticeable performance difference - especially when playing out of the rough. For this reason alone do I say that the average golfer (assuming they golf at least once a week during the golfing season) is best suited by wedges no older than two or three years old.  Putters are the odd man out here. I don't think it matters in the slightest when your putter was manufactured, so long as you keep a reasonable grip on it so that it doesn't slip out of your hands. I personally am a fan of the newer milled putters for the feel they provide, but it doesn't mean I couldn't probably putt nearly as well with an original Anser putter in the same style. I think the average golfer is best suited by whatever putter style and features allow them to consistently roll the ball along their target line, with no age requirement. In summary, considering the advancement of technology, I would feel comfortable putting these "maximum age caps" on equipment for the average weekend golfer to get the most out of his/her game: Drivers: ~10 years old or newer Irons: ~15 years old or newer Wedges: ~3 years old or newer Putter: Whatever works best for you That being said, you may still enjoy the game with any kind of equipment out there. I just think that equipment that follows these guidelines will let the average weekend golfer get about as much as they can out of their game without necessarily breaking the bank. Like @iacas said, you may find incremental improvements by purchasing the R1 over an old G5 but the question then becomes whether or not this improvement is worth the price difference. This question can only be answered by the person buying the club. It can't be denied, however, that a driver from the 1960's will be severely outclassed by the G5 and the R1, making either of them a much better choice than the 1960's driver. Interestingly enough, I have had the desire to go the opposite way for a while now. I bought the s55's my last go around, and I'm thinking that my next set of irons will be a more "traditional" muscleback iron (since the s55 is mostly a CB), along the likes of the MP-4 irons by Mizuno. I hit the ball consistently enough that I don't care about the lack of forgiveness, and I believe that the wonderful look and feel of those irons, along with the little bit of extra vertical control (can thin it slightly to make punch shots even easier) would offset whatever I lose in forgiveness. I know that I would most certainly never go to an iron like the AP2, the G, or the M2. The chunky look of the club (along with the offset) gets into my head nowadays and makes me feel uncomfortable standing over the ball in a manner similar to how I used to be intimidated by the look of blades at address. I would gain forgiveness, but at the price of distance and trajectory control - an unacceptable trade for me considering I value distance and trajectory control much more highly than forgiveness.
    • My newest clubs are pretty old. Maybe 2006? I don't really remember. The other day, just for the heck of it,  I played using my old Bazooka Iron Woods. (2i-LW) Shot my normal score. Those Ironwoods are probably 15-16 years old. I don't think at this stage of my life, that a new set would make that much difference.
