Bridgestone B330RX

The RX is such a nice ball, but they cost a mint & NEVER ever eveeerrrrrr go on sale.    Great Christmas gift though ...

As for golf, all I want for Christmas is a consistent golf swing.  This year has been a roller coaster ride with my swing.  Ugh!

But seriously, I usually don't care much for presents.  IMHO, I'm a simple man.  I am happy with what I have.

I'm adding the Snell Golf Balls to my list to see what all the hubbub is about.

I'll add those to my list. I have played them for the last year and half and they are excellent.

I knew what I wanted for Christmas. These came in yesterday. I took them directly to the driving range. What a difference modern equipment makes! My old set was Dynacraft forged cavity backs that were about 20 years old.

I've looked at this ^^^^^ but can't convince myself that I can't do the same thing with my iPhone and iPod.  And I much rather look at the videos and add lines on my laptop, not on a phone or tablet.

As far as my Golf Christmas list, this is probably the first year in many years that I really don't need anything, but if the family asks and don't have any other ideas I am sure I can find something.

The golf bag that came with my set was not the greatest, and I am tired of fighting with it. Have had my eye on a few cart bags for quite some time.  The Sun Mountain one was on clearance at Dick's for $159 and we got a $20 coupon applied to it. So I know what my Christmas gift is this year. That's all I want/wanted. It's all about the kiddos, would rather spoil them.

    • Shot 85 from the tips at Quail Brook for an 11.1 differential. Hit 9 GIR. I’m starting to drive the ball better and it’s exposing weaknesses in other areas of my game.
    • Played Quail Brook today, birdied 16 in dramatic fashion. New one for the away composite.
    • I will be brief, since others have weighed in and I echo the vast majority of what they've said (plus I love bullet points).  Naga-Waukee War Memorial - 6 A fun course, architecturally interesting Several nice views Walkable Passes the "I'd play here often" test Club at Lac La Belle - 6.5 Great Parkland golf.  I think the score suffered a little because all the other courses were so unique, but if this place were near my house it'd be one of the better courses available to play publicly. Walkable Firm, well-maintained greens with interesting contours Good combination of tough holes and less-challenging ones Not many real recovery options on a bad shot - most often, you're punching out from trees or laying up from a fairway bunker Passes the "I'd play here often" test  Favorite hole: #16 Lawsonia Links - 8 Unique and visually interesting Walkable Well-maintained greens with interesting contours, with play varying based on hole location (2) Par-3's were too long for me to really enjoy playing them Too many blind tee shots Some of the most fun approach shots I've had to play Passes the "I'd drive a couple hours to play here" test Favorite hole: #7 Mammoth Dunes - 8 Visually stunning Walkable Huge greens and fairways Turns out, I really enjoy "resort golf".  Separation value (which @iacas) referred to above is different for a 14-hcp...I liked that a wider range of shots were rewarded, but you still have to hit the ball solidly. Passes the "I'd drive a long way to stay/play here again" test Sand Valley - 8.5 Visually stunning Walkable Huge greens and fairways This is an aspirational course for me - breaking 90 the second day, even from an easier set of tees, felt like a real accomplishment...something I had to work damn hard for.  This is the kind of course I want to be good enough to play well.  At the end of the day, that's what ticked it 0.5 above Mammoth Dunes. Passes the "I'd drive a long way to stay/play here again" test
    • Our school district announced that they are going back to masks. It will be required for anyone under the age of 11, and then strongly recommended for anyone not vaccinated and recommended for anyone vaccinated. My wife (vaccinated) will likely wear one. My son will have to wear one. Honestly, I’m a little relieved. I think it’s the right choice, given the circumstances. There are probably better ways to do it, but they would involve mandating the vaccine for students and staff. I’m betting that’s coming before the start of 2022, but this is good enough in the interim. 
    • Working with my instructor on some simple grip and setup issues. I actually shortened my driver shaft and regripped with the same grip(gotta love pure grips) after testing some things out. I then added a bit of throw in the DS as mentioned in the last post to get some nice high ball flights with lots of carry and no more bottom half strikes. I am really liking the extension post impact, might need to work on the upper center getting a bit more forward but good progress for now. I don't need as much of a Bubba move as @saevel25 pointed out that I had at SV to counter an over rotating clubface. This will be counted as my yearly swing thread post with video. 😉
