Still processing the new MBP. Didn't watch the event, so going by live blogs. Underwhelmed by the touch bar, but need to use it to better access. Touch id is great. Very disappointed Magsafe is gone. No SD slot either, so will have to dig out the iPad's SD-USB dongle, hopefully that will work. Heard someone say fewer DIY upgrade options as you're limited to what you can swap out when you open it up, hope that's not true.
i stopped by the pro shop today at lunch. I actually figured if they had a nice rain jacket I'd buy that, as I don't have anything decent at the moment. However, pickings were pretty slim. They had a lot of nice shirts and pullovers, but I don't need any of that stuff. Otherwise, it was just the usual pro shop fare (and pro shop prices). Nothing that stuck out as a great gift idea either.
I asked about ordering a driver, and sure enough, they could order a G30 for $300 and drop ship it to my house. So, I figured what the hell and ordered a G30 in 10.5 with a regular shaft (cost me $200 out-of-pocket with the credit). I'll see how I hit it - I've already tried a friend's and hit it pretty well, but it was far from a scientific comparison to other drivers, including mine. I figure I can always get a different shaft for it down the road.
Tagging @iacas since he asked earlier. Thanks for the input all.
I was also going to say something about motivation and accountability. Motivation and accountability may be more necessary for some than others.
Similar to weight loss, some have a hard time with motivation when working on their own. But partner them up or add a counselor that they need to report in to and they have more success.
If you're talking about me, I don't really care. Also, it's only sweet because I ended up marrying her. Otherwise it would be kinda creepy.
And if you're not talking about me, uhhhh, you didn't read any of that. I didn't post anything. Shhhhhh.
I like @GolfLug's username but I'd like it more if I understood what the "lug" part meant. I've met Vishal many times, and he's not what you think of when you call someone a "lug."
