First comes the bold letters in caps for the title. WORLD CLASS golf.clubs for a good deal. Then, the body:. Great clubs used by the same brand As Dustin Johnson.The best shafts in the business. You will love them. They were retail at 1300 dollars, but I'm giving you a good price at 450, and I will throw in a bag. The clubs are tour preferred the original.  Hurry up, it will go fast. I will not budge on price

You know, it's like a car wreck.  You don't want to look.  You know you shouldn't look.  And yet here I am...  

I looked.

:doh:

Gilberg, especially vintage Gilberg, had a certain depth and creative panache that's completely missing here.

The great ones make it look easy... ;-)

I think it would be really cool to have your own "Random Musings" thread.

As it is, I'm the right age to have actually watched Family Matters voluntarily (hard to believe now). It seems appropriate for a Urkel.

So, I just traded in some clubs. They gave 3 options for what dollar amount they would give back. Average, below average and not playable. 7 of my 10 got average, 2 below average and 1 not playable. One had a big rust spot in the middle, and the other 2 had lack of good grooves. Considering I'm only trying to get full value on trade in clubs, and may want to get some beat up clubs and restore them, can most semi decent clubs be drastically improved without taking it to a restoration place? With a groove repair, vinegar, coke, etc?

Not as cool as your own healing lounge :-D

Or Mr. Topes.  What am I missing here?  Literally ever price of Global Golf is 30-80 percent less than these stores on Ebay. Mr. Topes has a titleist AP2 wedge for like 130 dollars that is like 30 dollars on global golf. Do people not shop around?

The GlobalGolf wedge appears to be a 708 series, I think, so it was made in 2008 -2009.  The grading shows that it shows significant wear from use.  I'd bet that the club in Ebay is a much newer model, potentially with a lot less wear.  People do shop around, and look at a lot more than the price tag.

Do you have data to back this up?  Bridgestone is very big in Japan in equipment sales and they sell a lot of golf balls world wide.   What about Snell?

Without going into specifics, I know Bridgestone has shown steady growth the last 10 years or so.

Though not a bigger company, it seems like Tour Edge is growing, I read a post on their Facebook page that they are doubling production due to higher demand. They had 7 of their clubs in the 2017 Golf Digest Hot List. Their Exotics fairways and hybrids are awesome, in fact they are in a lot of Tour Player's bags, you just don't know it because they don't spend the money on advertising that the big four do, and they don't pay their pros, like the big 4 do.

    • What country do you think has the fastest pace of play? Asking for when I retire
    • 4.5 hours being considered fine is just an American view of the game  I think most Americans would find themselves unwelcome if they didnt adjust to the pace in their weekly rounds elsewhere in the world.
    • Played yesterday and today.  Didn't go so well yesterday as I shot a 106 yesterday as my driver was just all over the place and my ball striking overall left a lot to be desired.  Had 4 GIRs, however, 3 were on the front which was a general theme as shot 49 on the front and 57 on the back. Score: 106 CR/Slope: 71.6/121 2 Pars 5 Bogeys 3 DB 6 TB 1 Quad-Bogey View this round on GAME GOLF   Today I was able to bounce back and although I shot 100, I had control over my driver, was moving the ball right to left or straight off the tee and my ball striking felt better.  2 holes ended up doing me in, though.  After starting with 3 bogeys, which really should have included 1 par, and a double bogey, on the par 3 4th hole, I pushed a 7I right  and subsequently overdrew the ball on my reload and missed short and right on a brutal front right location location on a green that slopped severely from back right to front left.  Over-hit my chip shot that went all the way to the back right of the green, had to chip on and then 3 putt for an 8.  On the Par 4 14th hole, I overdrew 2 tee shots with my 3H OB.  Then chipped out, leaving myself 100 yards, took a three-quarter swing with a 52 degree wedge and left it short right.  Flag was on the front right and I thinned my chip shot, leaving it on the back left of the green.  I then 3 putt for a 10.  That said, drained a few longish putts, but my short game, putter notwithstanding, was brutal as I failed to leave myself any gimmies when chipping.  That said, had another birdie and a few pars so there are definitely positives to take away from the round. Score: 100 CR/Slope: 70.4/124 Birdie: 1 Pars: 3 Bogeys: 6 DB: 6 Others: 2 View this round on GAME GOLF 4 rounds in four days - first time I've been able to do that and it was AWESOME!  Shot 95, 95, 106, 100 so, not too shabby for me. 
    • thank you...already loaded up on TM clubs :/...that being said, I've been working on my tee shot and was wondering how much range time is too much?  have had my M2 driver for about 5 days...have hit about 250ish balls with it already...too much?
    • Yep.  Lagavulin is another.  The Isle of Islay scotches are unique.  A lot of people don’t like the peat and astringent iodine.  Good stuff, but not a beginners whisky!
