  1. Yardages Throughout the Bag

    My driver carry is 215-220, so I interpolated between the white and purple. My fairway woods, hybrids, and wedges are all right about as predicted, but my 4-9 irons are all about 5 yards longer than predicted.
  2. Do You Play the Correct Tees?

    My driver carry averages 215-220 and the tees I play at my home course (Whispering Woods in Erie, PA) are 6,034. Interpolating the chart, I am just about perfect. I play with quite a few guys who need to swallow their pride and move up to the senior tees, so I voted 31-50%

  4. I met up with Iacas a couple months ago for a fitting. Figured my Vokeys had 300+ rounds on them, they were looking pretty beat and not getting as much spin as they used to. I had also been re-reading this thread and a few others, and suspected I didn't have enough bounce (50-8, 54-11, and 58-8) for my swing style and local turf conditions. Went with the DVR grind and KBS 110 R shafts, but stayed with the 50,54,58 degree lofts. Got about six rounds in with them before the courses closed for the year, and am quite happy. Sand play is a breeze with them, and my chips (not my strongest suit) are more consistent, too. My only surprise was (as others have noted) about 5 yards shorter on full shots than the Vokeys. However, working now at the indoor range, I am experimenting with moving the ball position back about an inch, and it seems like I am hitting the wedges more solidly. It may also just be me getting more used to a bit different clubhead weight and shaft flex. Always nice to have something to work on.
  5. Sorry, I am not able to attend this time due to prior family and social commitments. Courses look like fun. Hope everyone has a good time and the weather cooperates.
  6. Looks like they are out of stock again already online.
  7. Anyone noticing more stores that are credit card only?

    I agree with that and apparently wasn't clear. In a routine retail transaction, the goods and payment are exchanged simultaneously and no debt is created. In a restaurant situation however, once the food is prepared and served to me, my obligation to pay is a form of debt, and if I do not wish to pay by check or credit card, the establishment must accept my cash as a payment against my debt. OTOH, all the restaurant needs to do is post signage about not accepting cash, and then they have every right to refuse my cash order.
  8. Anyone noticing more stores that are credit card only?

    Look at our currency, it says "this note is legal tender for all debts, public and private." So if I go to a restaurant, order and consume food, and am then presented with the bill, by law they must accept cash as a payment option. The way airlines and such get away with it is by requiring a credit card before they accept my order.

    Looks like the Poultergeist will need a 66 or 67 just to make the cut.
  10. How about we permit the use of the measuring devices, and enforce the 45 second shot clock?
  11. 2017 Valero Texas Open

    Anyone besides me miss the course they used to play this tournament on, the one with the roller coaster behind the 6th hole? I played there once and thought the course was a lot of fun.

    Would need about a top 30 finish?
  13. Modernized Rules Discussion: Areas of the Course

    That is the problem with the unofficial rule, players take their drop all the way out to the edge of the fairway and are guaranteed an opportunity for a good third shot. With actual red stakes along the tree trunk line and legal drops only a clublength in, overhanging limbs, long grass, etc. mean your third shot will often be no more than a punch back to the fairway.
