  1. Just wanted to send a quick note as I get contacted ~ quarterly from various golfers who must of stumbled on this thread... Unfortunately, I'm no longer playing golf at this time, nor a part of the SCISC. Not that I don't love the game, but having two babies since December of 2013 has changed how I handle my free time immensely (translation - I barely get to play anymore ). So if you're looking to play in a men's league, please contact the members on this site as they can get you connected with folks who are playing regularly, and some in organized leagues. Hit'em straigh
  2. Definitely agree that a beginner could just purchase a set off the rack, and be good to go. But if money's not a concern, knock yourself out and get fitted. Fittings started on tour, to optimize the Pro's length off the tee (driver, 3w) and to dial in their wedges and putter. That filtered down into the masses as people wanted to play with clubs like their favorite pro used. And devices like launch monitors and radars became available for purchase that a regular teaching pro or retailer could acquire. Thus fittings became a thing. The challenge as others have said is that as you engage in
  3. @mvmac So do you believe it's tempo? Should he invest in a Tour Tempo track?
  4. When they say there is 'no touching' in the champagne room... That means you too Mr. Allenby.
  5. Hey guys, I saw I was tagged here in this thread. Just wanted to confirm that I indeed do have the GoPro Black from a few Christmas' ago. It films 240fps at WVGA resolution which is great for the golf swing. There is a 'fish eye' effect which distorts the image a little, but you can post edit that out using the proper Adobe programs. Which some of my early vids did that, but it wasn't really worth the time/effort to post edit as the net results in my opinion is that you can see what you need to see in the swing even if the video has the fish eye effect that the GoPro lens creates. God Bless!
  6. Where's Grant on the list? And of course T_Dub (ladykiller69) is working with Evolr.
  7. Support them... Mizzy and Ping make nice clubs.
  8. I may be able to join this one? My Father-in-Law is planning on visiting my wife and I around Thanksgiving (dates have yet to be confirmed). Knowing that, my availability would be better toward the beginning of November, and would be worse the closer we get to T-Day.
  9. Cocaine is a helluva drug. (6pgs in - and not one smart ass said this!?... Sorry, I couldn't resist.)
  10. I haven't done the fitting because I have vertigo when I stand over putts... That's why I can't aim, and that's why I suck at putting! Honestly, I agree that if you have settled on one setup/ball placement, and don't tool around with it... Then you should be fine with an Edel fitting. Unfortunately for me... I had/have screwed around with my putting stance, ball placement, stroke type, putter length, weight, etc. etc... In the last three years, that if I would've been fitted by Edel, I'm afraid the fitting would've been nullified by all the changes that I made? That is why I was afrai
  11. Mophie Juice pack. I can go days without charging my phone with it. And I have Bluetooth, Wifi and LTE all running on the iPhone 5. It's like ~$100 accessory, but worth every penny as I travel a lot. And as GD mentioned, can use the GPS apps playing golf with no impact at all on the battery.
  12. I'd like to play somewhere other than Temecula Creek. I've played there a lot. It's nice. But for me to drive 2 hrs. I'd rather play a better course.
  13. Patrick Reeds Ego! LOL those tweets are money! LMAO
  14. Who the hell is the freak with his paws on my golf bag?! @mvmac thank you for posting a swing and a few feels to consider... I'll work on the right palm/wrist and try and prevent it from overflexing from A3 to A4. Definitely would like to see that club become more square at A4 and believe you nailed the weakness in your observation. Sorry about being sporadic on here... Baby and work have both taken a lot of my downtime!!
  15. I'd like to play... Just need to checkout the calendar once a date is set. Perhaps late April or early May? Black Gold sounds good to me...
  16. Had fun playing Goose Creek this past Sunday. Thanks to Mike and Tristan for putting this event together... And Erik and Brandon for traveling into Socal to participate. It was a good time and great to see everyone again. Look forward to playing in the next outing...
  17. I just walked 5 miles and realized how much I'm out of shape! What a pansy ass. I need to try and hit the range tonight so I don't look like a total hack tomorrow!
  18. Here is the 18th from this past summer when I played Goose Creek. Here is their practice area. They have a great range. See you guys on Sunday!
  19. I was confused. I was thinking Westwood was working with Chuck Cook? But then realized it was Luke Donald who wanted to work with Foley, but Foley said he was fully loaded and recommended Luke to work with Chuck. Carryon.
  20. Thanks for having me. Looking forward to it. Erik, my cap is a 7 right now. And that is being generous. I blame my child for that! Lol
  21. I'm in... Can I play with Pakoh, Golfswine and Golfingdad... aka Cheese? We have a Beach/Lake Cup that we are competing for...
