Exactly my point. You're choosing to exclude a brand of product that you admit makes a good product simply on the off chance you don't like the clubs that the resale value is going to be lower than you feel it should be. While you're obviously entitled to do so, I don't think that is a good reason to exclude a company and not even consider them when making future purchases.
We aren't talking about a car or something here, we are talking about a couple hundred bucks at the most, and that's only on the off chance that you don't like the clubs.
Out of curiosity, which irons are you referring to and how much did you pay for them in 2011?
I recently had a tournament and a friend's event all outside in 85+ deg and 90% humidity. The keys for me were to Cooling towel, water, Gatorade, good food (turkey sandwich and banana) and an umbrella. Use all of these early and often. Also if you are walking go at your pace, don't rush to keep up. Take a few extra seconds to catch your breath, wrap your head or get some water.
Finally, I found that taking my hat off in the shade and using some cool water was a big help.
So Mr. 202 has been looping for Matt Every. Not a star, but a guy that has had some success. He has two career wins and had a second-place finish and a third earlier this year. But ...
Now Matt has to answer questions about his idiot caddie and he's missed the cut three of the last four tournaments.
Trey better hope that Matt really likes him.
Not to me. If person buys a new set of irons in the spring, only to find out that he hates them in the fall, he will then take a big hit to make a change. My Pings are from 2011 and they are still worth half of what I paid for them. My son plays TM and loves them. They do make a good product, just too many changes.
It's been over a month since I started experiencing a sharp pain in my chest and armpit area in my lead side from apparent overuse. I am guilty on numerous occasions of reaching for the large bucket at the driving range, sometimes even twice in one session, and just overall engaging in very fast paced, frustration-filled practice sessions. I've tried everything from the RICE method in the early stages of the injury (rest, ice, compression and elevation), visited a sports specialist orthopedic who pretty much just confirmed my own self diagnosis of an intercostal muscle strain from overuse and advised that with these types of injuries there isn't much that can be done other than give it time and ease back into normal activity over time. Very eager to continue playing and practicing, being that it's mid-season here in the northeast, I tried playing again just a week after initial injury and seemed to have set myself back. I then gave myself more rest time, about three weeks to be exact of not swinging a club, and started incorporating stretches and light weight training to help with the rehab. I've since played about three rounds and hit the driving range on one occasion but continue to experience pain. While not as extreme as how it felt when I first injured myself, I'm frustrated with the lack of progress. Definitely thought I would be good by now.
Now I've totally learned my lesson and realized what not to do in the future and even improved my swing substantially so that it's smoother and less violent from reading several books (Hogan, Penick) and practicing my slow swings without a club in front of the mirror. What I am curious to know is if anyone has experienced a similar golf injury and managed to successfully treat it and get back on the course pain free, and of course how long did it take...
