  1. I am very suspect of the headcover you are thinking of purchasing (the first one). It looks like nothing more than an OTR headcover that someone stitched a circle t on. The one that is yours (the second one) looks legit.
  2. I have the Titleist x86 as well and it is a great bag, very light and comfortable. Sun Mountain makes Titleist bags so you can't go wrong with them either.
  3. Last winter in Colorado I played a few times per month. There was a streatch of about 6 weeks where there was too much snow on the ground to play. As long as it over 45° outside and there isn't snow on the fairways and greens I will play.
  4. A full 52° wedge will get me 100 yards from the fairway, if I am in the rough I will use a 3/4 PW.
  5. Thanks for posting your experience. I live in Colorado Springs as was thinking about volunteering for the US Senior Open at the Broadmoor this year but missed the opportunity to sign up. I am planning on volunteering for the US Women's Open which comes here in 2011.
  6. By far, the short game is the most important in my opinion. Really from 80 yards in most shots are wasted. Spend time on the range with your wedges, practicing full shots, 3/4 and half shots, get your distances down so when you are on the course and you have 60 yards to the hole you know what club you need to use and how much of a swing to put on it. Finally work on putting. There is always room for improvement here. I spend twice the amount of time on the practice green than I do on the driving range and my putts per round have gone from 40 per 18 holes to now I am averaging between 24-26 per 18, that's a savings of almost a stroke per hole.
  7. Right now I have a picture I took of my 009 for my desktop.
  8. Check out thecameroncollector.com for more information on collecting Camerons. There are some collectors who have incredibly rare Camerons that they choose not to game for obvious reasons, but many collectors, including myself, game most everything they have.
  9. GOLF RELATED: -Putters - I have quite a few SC, Ping, TPM -Golf Balls - From courses I have played and tournaments I have attended -Putter Headcovers (for my putter collection of course) -Golf Bags - My wife can't seem to understand this one. She equates my golf bags to her purses , oh well. OTHER: -Antique Cameras -Cigars -Books
  10. Does anyone even think that Nike actually made any of Tiger's clubs? I imagine they are probably Miura forgings (or something similar) with a Nike stamp. His putter is a Scotty Cameron Newport 2 GSS with a Ping "Black-out" grip. He has had it in his bag for almost 10 years I beleive.
  11. I really didn't want to read through all 10 pages of this thread so this may already have been mentioned. Isn't a lot of golf mental? If I feel more confident hitting a new 460 cc driver vs. a older 320 cc driver, or even better a persimmon head driver, won't I hit it at lease "better" than the older drivers. Another example, if I stand over a 30' putt with a Scotty Cameron vs. a $10 stick I bought at Walmart, won't I strike that putt with more confidence with the Scotty Cameron? From my personal experience I have found that my confidence level has increased with better equipment. Another issue I have with your thread is your audience (this forum). This is a golf enthusiast forum, most members here are not your typical weekend duffer, most are hard-core golf enthusiasts who live and breathe golf. We are club-ho's, we watch the golf-channel more than any other channel, we think that a new driver, or new irons are going to get us another 10 yards, or a few feet closer to the pin. Now the 10 more yards may only put us at a 240 yard drive, but if that new $100 shaft will get us there than so be it. Just my $.02.
  12. I prefer a blade putter, but my SC Futura Phantom has been my bag on a number of occasions.
  13. Over the past few months I have been working on my putting stroke in which I now "deloft" the putter by moving my hands in front of the ball. I have found that not only does it get the ball rolling faster, but my putting stoke seems smoother.
