  1. Yeah, I mean it's no big deal - many of us have them simply because they came with the clubs lol. My thought was that if we cared about the club getting scratches at all, it seems that during a round they're bouncing around a lot more than at any other time in their lifetime, including sitting in the car trunk. But you're right that they're just like any other expensive item, including cars; you're extra worried about them like they're newborn babies up until that first scratch or ding. After that? Meh, who cares haha!
  2. I do almost every one of these over the course of a given round (the logistics of a driver cover in my pocket notwithstanding) except for one glaring standout - tossing all the covers in the cart basket. What would even be the point of owning hesdcovers if you’re gonna do that? I’m baffled.
  3. Awesome, I grew up on those courses. Not sure if you remember because even though you are older than me, this was well before you started playing: I actually learned as a kid when Hanks was just a driving range at the airport right there off Chestnut, between Dakota and Shields. I also played a lot at Palm Lakes when it still existed. And I disagree with you about Madera - it was my favorite course throughout the 90's SPECIFICALLY because the trees were sparse and tiny lol!! As long as I didn't go left, especially on the front, I could score really well from anywhere haha! I also
  4. Hi Mike, Welcome! I grew up in Fresno. Moved away many years ago but still visit a couple of times a year. Where do you like to play?
  5. "Recently, I was offered the opportunity to receive the Presidential Medal of Freedom, which I was flattered by out of respect for what the honor represents and admiration for prior recipients. Subsequently, the tragic events of last week occurred and the decision has been made not to move forward with the award. Above all, I am an American citizen with great reverence for our nation's values, freedom and democracy. I know I also represent my family and the New England Patriots team. One of the most rewarding things in my professional career took place in 2020 when, through the great leadershi
  6. PGA will strip Trump Bedminster of 2022 PGA Championship, insider says The golf major will be moved, according to a report.
  7. @DaveP043 ... you guys taking this year off I'm guessing? The irony for me is because if covid my work schedule is so flexible, I'd probably be able to sneak out there a couple times during the week lol!
  8. I agree with most who say it’s not really an issue. That said, it would be a cool custom option (maybe some already do it?) to be able to tell them what you wanted on the bottom of the clubs. Since it’s more common to have clubs above 9 than it is below 4, you could choose to label your 4I as a 1I and go from there. Or, an idea I got from @boogielicious post (and this only works if you get new sets more frequently than I do) instead of a 1 digit number, but your actual full swing distances on there instead. 🙂
  9. They're not that noticably steep ... but the silence when they cut the engines over Newport is a bit odd/eerie. Most of the time (if you can even hear them) they do warn you before takeoff.
  10. I chose 3w/hybrid because if I hit a decent drive and still have that much left into a hole it means I'm playing a "big boy" course and it feels challenging. Now, if the question is more about with which club I would be confident hitting the green, then realistically, I'd have to vote 8/9. I'm roughly a 4 handicap at this point (haven't played too much, so possibly closer to a 5-6 realistically) and I am way more likely to miss the green than hit it if I'm 7 iron distance or more out. It's a sad truth lol.
  11. Almost exactly what I was going to say. I am also in a similar handicap range**, and I shot a 90 earlier this year, but by no means would I consider that "acceptable." By the same token, I'm going to keep having those rounds forever, because, well, I'm not a great golfer, so in that regard, I kind if have to accept it. My numbers are almost exactly the same as David's above as well. If I shoot below 80 on any "normal" course, I'm not going to be displeased, and if I shoot over about 84 I am going to be displeased. In the middle, it's ... whatever. And, yup, the "whatever" rounds
  12. See, now this is the thread you should have made. "I was in a money tournament recently and when faced with a couple of delicate chip shots, I was unable to execute. Please help." If you play the victim and blame others for your screwups like you'd been up to this point, you're never going to improve upon the real problem. For the actual issue, may I suggest:
  13. I've never looked at a lease because I thought they always had fairly low maximums on mileage. Is that still a thing? With Covid, I don't drive hardly at all anymore and for who knows how much longer, but prior to that I believe that both of our cars were driven in the vicinity of 25k miles per year.
  14. If I'm playing with buddies, it's typically a combination of A, B and C. I'd usually go with yardage and lean towards the 6600-6800 range, then peek at rating/slope to make sure it doesn't stand way out, then if my buddies really want longer or shorter for whatever reason, I'm always fine with that. I'm not going to go golfing with friends and insist on playing blue tees while they're all playing white. If I'm playing with my son, dad or father-in-law, 3 people who will 100% not be playing the same tee as me, then I go by yardage. This is also the situation where I might be more inclin
  15. Being that it's mid-November this would be the one Masters where that would actually make sense. Or "Stuffing!!!!!!!" or "Cranberry Sauce!!!!!' (But not "Yams!!!) blech. 😉
