  1. Explain how that was disrespectful? I shared my feelings on the topic. You just shared your feelings on my post, does that make your post disrespectful? No. It's just your opinion. I think your talking this in the wrong way. Oh and last time I checked I did say this site is a good site, and I have been a member here for 1 1/2 years. I'm just curious if iacas got the idea for the contest after seeing the reactions of various companies and/or the increase in members at THP. I feel your the childish one for attacking me because of my opinions. Again I think you are taking this the wrong way.
  2. You seem to have completely missed the point of my post. Lemme try this again. You've heard the old saying "practice makes perfect," right? Well I feel that's wrong. If you practice bad habits you're just reinforcing them. I think the saying needs to be "perfect practice makes perfect." If you practice the right things you will get better. So take a Tour players 1000 range balls, they are practicing with an swing coach every time, and their mechanics are amazing. Now take a 20 'capper's 1000 range balls, they will hit say over half with the driver, but they will it it with such poor mechanics and such inconsistency that they don't gain anything from hitting it. I don't buy the whole "all they practice is driver," crap. Just 'cause you practice something a lot doesn't mean that your going to get better with it. That's just my 2 cents.
  3. Iacas, I noticed that you guys are running a contest here on the site for 2 Leupold range finders. I think that is a great idea, and I commend you for your generosity. I am also a member over at The Hackers Paradise, and I have switched my time to that website as I feel it is a better site, although this one here is also a solid site. But I wonder where you suddenly got the urge to do a contest and give away a few rangefinders. I say this because, as you now I have been a member here for a year and a half, and in the past if you can keep the product you either keep it for your self, or give it to another staff member. Never have you ever given the product away, you may have sold the product in the Marketplace, but never have you given it away for free. Now I get to the mention of The Hackers Paradise (THP). I know that site was started by a former member here at TST, and you two had different views on subjects so the other man left. Since the beginning at THP, they have given away every club that they reviewed and were permitted to keep. I have wondered if maybe you have seen this, seen the reaction of not only the companies, but the growth of members, and "stolen" the idea for the contests. I may be wrong, but that is just what I see on the subject. Ban me from the site if you would like, or put me in the "penalty box," but you will basically just be censoring the website because you don't agree with someone else's statements, which is wrong. Have a good day.
  4. You realize that Tour players hit 1000's of balls in a week. Most people can't afford to hit the same amount of balls as Tour players. Plus Tour players practice with a purpose, and IMO practicing with a purpose is better then just randomly hitting the driver a bunch of times.
  5. Not quite, with 110 MPH swing speed you can expect a MAX carry, that's perfect swing, perfect launch, perfect spin, perfect contact, perfect everything, is 275 yards. Granted that's on level ground, but you get what I'm saying. And on the iron loft thing, no set of clubs has 8* of difference between another set. the reason some sets of irons have stronger lofts is because they launch the ball higher so the loft keeps everyone from majorly ballooning the ball. Even then it's only a degree or two difference, with the extremes being 3 degrees difference, but that's rare.
  6. Something isn't adding up here, with those numbers a 175 9 iron just doesn't make sense, and you don't live in like Utah where the air is super thing and you hit the ball farther.
  7. What is you SS with your driver and your 6 iron? 175 for a 9 iron is above Tour pros average, and they play X shafts, you got S300s. If you really hit your 9 iron 175 then you went with the completely wrong shaft for your swing.
  8. Okay, you've already gotten your irons, but a 175 yard 9 iron? Give me a break, you need to grab a GPS and get the real numbers. Plus you need to get on a hole where there is no wind, and also no elevation change at all.
  9. I used to game J33 CB's and they were great. Bridgestones make great irons, I would say if your looking at the ZB's (which I game now) I would say check out the J36's. You can mix and match with all 3 models (blades, cavities, and pocket cavities)

    Tiger's irons

    Again, he has a 13 club, full apparel and footwear contract. That one club he doesn't have is Nike is his Cameron, hence a 13 club contract not 14. It's not that hard to figure out the big outline of the contract.

    Tiger's irons

    No I'm not missing any point, you are changing your own. The bolded statement in your first post clearly says "what ever he wants." Not "something that looks like Nike clubs."
  12. Plying in my 14th season, I play year round. And Liverpool? Puh-lease!! Man Utd. is even worse! Man City? Better, but not quite right. By the way they are in the relegation group at the moment. I would hope that they could get out, with some of the players that they have (Robinho most notably). But I wouldn't be surprised if they get relegated as City's better half of the season is usually the first half, and so far they aren't doing too good. Don't even get me started. Chelsea is where it's at. LETS GO BLUE!
  13. My best advice would be to let her know that if she ever wants to go practice with you, hit balls, chip, putt, and so on, to let you know. Don't make her go play or practice. Just tell her if she wants to that's great, and if not that's okay too. If she really wants to play then she will ask you to go all the time. I think that is one of the reasons that I am into golf so much now. My mom asked me if I wanted to go to a golf camp at a local course, and I said sure, and 2 weeks later I had the bug. Also when ever you play or practice with her keep it positive and fun. Never say negative things, always comment on the good things she is doing. If she hits a wicked slice, don't mention that, just say "look how far that went," or "look how long that stayed in the air." Also, make little games with her, if she makes 5 putts in a row from 3 feet you will buy her candy, or something small that she wants. One thing that might work if she doesn't have clubs yet is to make little games, and make each worth X amount of points depending on the difficulty. Keep a chart, or at least track how many points she gets, and then say if you get 50 points then we will go and buy you any putter that you want. And so on, with her gradually getting more clubs, until she gets a full set. It will improve her game, get her clubs, keep her interested, and best of all, it will be fun for her. I hope this helps, and good luck.
  14. My best round after one year was 74 last winter in Maui at Wailea, I shot 38-38. I started in May '07, and now I'm addicted
