  1. Remember the old Stan Thompson Ginty? I found a Maple laminate version of the 7 wood at the Salvation Army back in about 2007. Hell I had a Wilson Staff Clima-Gard 4 wood in my bag from 2007-2009 I found for $2. The Ginty lasted about 2 holes.... I also tried those Heavy Putters for a while... actually had 4 different models of that. At one point about 4 years ago, I had 17 different putters, including a Cure RX2. You could set it at 80° Lie and it would set on the green without you their. It had a truly adjustable lie.
  2. I think it depends on how far you hit your 4 and 5 iron. It’s as simple as that. Other than that Stay out of the shit, call the zoo.
  3. Drive. I like driving the cart. It’s an adventure on a course you’ve never played. As a side note: I prefer walking when able. I understand cart rentals are the main source of revenue for a lot of courses. (Especially around here where everything is under $50 to play 18 holes with a cart). I like the walk though.
  4. Maybe he should’ve stuck with the “are you f***ing kidding me?!” from the PGA. We wouldn’t be having this discussion. Or called the ball an inanimate object, or just a “piece of shit” like Happy Gilmore.
  5. I didn’t say that. He had both, bad thoughts and intentions.
  6. I take it you’ve heard George Carlin’s “Seven Words You Can’t Say On Television”. “400,000 words in the English language and 7 of them you can’t say on television... they’re no bad words, BAD thoughts, BAD intentions, and WORDS...
  7. Is your 919 bent that way? Because stock loft I’m pretty sure is 34°. Anyway that’s a really good question. I would think maybe the SGI iron, with it being a little bit shorter than some utility irons. Might be a little bit tighter dispersion. As a driving iron, the SGI’s tend to work pretty well. However, on long approaches the utility irons do tend to do a bit better.
  8. I moved from Ithaca to Norwich so I’m now only about 45 minutes from Cooperstown and 90 minutes from Albany. Any suggestions now that I’m in Norwich...
  9. Adam is right. It’s really negligible of any changes. You’d need a Trackman or GC Quad in order to notice a difference.
  10. Fine. Currently thinking about actually double hard-stepping a regular just for the hell of it.
  11. If you want to just include “Modern” golf, You’d have to make a case for Hogan on there, but you could argue others. I don’t know that you could include Norman, Seve or Faldo. But you could also make the case for Mickey Wright or Nancy Lopez or Annika too.
  12. Well he can poke his head around the corner without Peter, Henry, Ken, and Johnny. But you could argue Jim McKay or Jack Whitaker could be on the golf commentator Mt. Rushmore. Joe Buck and Brandel can can be on golf commentary’s “Scrapheap” with Troy Aikman telling them that they are doing a good job. Honestly you could argue that Annika belongs on there or Mickey Wright, Babe Zaharias, Louise Suggs, Nancy Lopez, Dottie Pepper, Juli Inkster... it would be an argument you’d have with yourself for a while. It’s one of those things, who transcended golf in their generation. V
  13. Why don’t guys take a lofted hybrid or 7-iron grip down a couple inches, use your putting stroke and grip for when you’re going to use a chipper and call it good. It’s the same damn thing. There you go you all have a chipper in your bags. With the iron you might wanna lift the heel off the ground, to make the club more upright. But it’s pretty simple.
  14. We could do a Rushmore of Golf Commentators and Peter would definitely be on it. Along with Venturi, Miller and not Brandel.
  15. I say one player each through the main 4 eras. The pioneers of each era that are the cornerstone of that era. late 19th-early 20th Century: Harry Vardon I mean we still use his grip and he kind of won 6 Open Championships. 1918-1960: There once was a lawyer named Robert Tyre Jones, Jr. He was a pretty good amateur golfer. He won this thing called the Grand Slam as it was known in 1930. Many say he was the greatest amateur golfer of all time. He gave the world this golf course amongst the tall pines of Georgia. You may of heard of it, it is called the Augusta National Golf Club.
  16. It’s for all those par-5s they can reach in two, and par-fours that they’re next to the green. With a chipper they could add two to three GIR a round. I’ve never had one in the bag or used one, but thought about it. Maybe in my left-handed bag, or maybe re-do my wedge set up and throw one in, well it might help me hit a couple more GIRs.
  17. Scott I don’t know what kind of irons you have, but I’m guessing not T400s? Or Epic Stars?
  18. Ping puts S and L on theirs, (if they’re part if the iron set) and so does Cleveland on their SmartSole wedges, and Mizuno on their JPX 900 and 919 wedges. The problem causing all of this bullshit, is the long end of the iron set. You dont need a 18 or 19 degree 4-iron, I don’t care where you say you’re putting the weight. It’s a myth, it’s 4-6 mm lower than a blade, that’s all. So 21° should be sufficient for a 4-iron, and no more of this 2.5, 3.5, 4.5, 4.5, 5, 5.5, 5.5, 7 gapping shit. The long end is too compressed and the short end is far apart. Titleist to their credit does do t
  19. Yeah that’s why I don’t use “don’t hit it in the shit”, I use “stay out of the shit.”, oh and call the zoo. It’ll change your golf game forever.
  20. 6 new gloves, a cleaning brush, a towel, pitch mark repair tool, ball markers, tees, 6 dozen balls, an outfit, and a gift certificate for 2 rounds of golf.
  21. This is why I thought that when the Ben Hogan Ft. Worth 15 irons first came out, the lofts on the bottom were brilliant because you could literally call a club whatever the hell you wanted.
  22. Actually almost no one sells irons in a “set” anymore. They do. But custom orders they’ve started to do the set divided by 8 or 7 for individual clubs instead of a little more for individual clubs. All I’m saying is SGI iron set “wedges” are not wedges they’re irons. By the way, I don’t carry the 2 iron anymore. I play Driver, 3-wood, 3-iron at the top for now. And for the record, I wouldn’t carry T400s even in my left handed set. Actually my irons are as follows: 3-iron: 19.5° 4-iron: 22° 5-iron: 24.5° 6-iron: 27.5° 7-iron: 31.5° 8-iron: 36°
  23. Just requiring people to buy more wedges that’s all. The longest iron in the T400 set is a “5-iron” and that’s 20° since when did my 3-iron get stamped with a 5
  24. I’m not necessarily talking about full shots @colin007. They act fine with full shots. (Though the distance control leaves something to be desired.) I do believe that they work for the handicaps/swing speeds they are designed for. But try hitting even a small chip shot with these things if you aren’t used to it, even the 48-50° wedge in these models, the face is very hot for short chips. Gapping isn’t the issue if your 38° PW is your say 110 yard club. Which is sort of who these clubs are marketed for. But I still think it’s more of a 10-iron than a wedge. If you’re using a set PW and GW
