This time of the year gives me the excuse to buy golf stuff...I say to myself..is Christmas!...lol. $1k later...I start feeling buying remorse. 

I buy stuff this time of year too. This year I've been smart and avoided buying a bunch of clubs.

Turkey with all the trimmings, and the smile on my son's face when he opens his presents (also my youngest's 1st christmas)

Holy cow! You just pushed one of my buttons! I swear I could eat roast turkey, dressing, and gravy every day!

However, I spotted this thread on March 3, so I will say this. It's March, the "cruelest" month in some folks estimation since it's the transition from Winter to Spring. But MLB teams are in Spring training, and the Sun is higher in the sky than it's been for quite a while. Enough so that you can actually feel the heat in the sunlight now!

At this time of year, on a sunny day I like nothing better than going outside, closing my eyes, and turning my face towards the Sun feeling the warmth on my face.

Lengthening days.  They're finally long enough I can leave work @ 4:45 and walk 4-5 holes.  But the big one:  come Sunday morning -- start of Daylight Savings!!  Then, at least 12-13 holes after work, or hitting the airfield w/my planes or helis for a couple of hours.

Yup, we just crossed over 12 hours of daylight here in Michigan. A few weeks until the official handicap season opens. A lot of anticipation.

The Masters baby!

:banana:

One of the things I love about the Masters is how green and beautiful the course is. Here in MA, everything still is brown and dormant.

Well, it's now June 2, and I just got my garden planted! Can't wait for those home grown tomatoes! I will not buy a tomato in a grocery store any more. They taste like crap! So, tomatoes become a seasonal delicacy for me. That's OK. I'd rather eat good!

I like being able to hang around inside with a window open or the AC on just very slightly, with sunlight pouring in the windows.

Plus, it's almost tomato and corn season!

    • If you think this theory is true then it should be extremely easy to test. Either get on GEARS and check the lies of your longest and shortest irons, or go find a GC4 or Trackman and do the same. And if you don't have easy access to those, might I suggest the sharpie line check 😀.
    • My friend and I built me a set of tour cavity irons (4-pw) nearly 20yrs ago paired with rifle 6.0 shafts. As a 5 handicapper and 20yrs of trying 20 sets of different clubs, these tour cavity irons are the best. They’ve aged really well too. My only regret is I wish we would’ve built a 3 iron with my set, I’ve had a really difficult time trying to find one now. 
    • I don’t see that analogy working. People, like @iacas, who use GEARS to obtain information are hardly average people in the golf world. No one suggested average people should run out and get a GEARS  system for themselves. It’s a suggestion that fitters may be interested in this information in regards to lie angles and how they’re currently measured.
    • OMG. Your Sharpie test isn’t anywhere near as accurate as GEARS. And the friend has seen thousands and thousands of shots hit on GEARS.
    • Not saying the "average person" is buying the GEARS set up, the average person buys access to the technology that otherwise would be unavailable to them.  Here's an experiment. Go check the lie angle question that started this thread using GEARS, and then cross check those results with the sharpie check. See how the results compare.
