Your Golf Game

  1. To every generation a choice such as this is posed, be it Betty or Veronica, Bailey or Jennifer, or Lana or Lois.
  2. This prototype may come to that store near you, but don't hold your breath for that midnight opening just yet. Drool away.
  3. You're right the new stuff is not necessarity better just better. That said, knowing what is coming down the pipe could help one negotiate a better price or await an imminent price reduction. Had I known of update for early 2008 I would not have purchased a new 5-wood in wood in October. (I saw that the Canadian price was identical to the American so I snapped it up.) It was my first golf purchase in 16 years and I was excited. Now, more informed, but addicted, it seems that I'm on a mission to replace all of my gear, from head(cover) to towel. Send money.
  4. Better off for Callaway than something else. A little while ago, I borrowed a friend's 56° (13° bounce I recall) and found them versatile in various conditions. They are suited to someone with a good short game. Its pedigree was clearly that of RC.
  5. Crosby had a good game last night - his first in Western Canada, in Gretz's old place, no less - and led the Penguins' comeback against the Oilers with 3 assists.
  6. Some of it has been available for a few weeks in places where it is summer now. It never hurts to take a peek at the new gear (except perhaps one's wallet.) The FT-i Squareway Woods stand out for me, lkely because of the shape and colour. The other items in the the FT line, well, let's just say they're not the Adrianna Lima of golf clubs.
  7. It's a rush! I like both iron sets. The MX-25 feels so soft and lovely. My distance was greater with the Callaway, but dispersion was tighter with the Mizuno. At address and overall, the MX-25 looked fine. Strangely, at address I see only the ball and not the club.
  8. My mother's business partner. Before I started, he gave me 3 golf books and I was tested, particularly on etiquette, before being allowed to step foot on the grounds, let alone play (that came after instruction.)

    1908

    My grandfather, soon to be 99, was born 4 months after the 1908 Series. That is a long time.
  10. Blair O'Neal or Anna Rawson are two who stand apart. As far as girl-next-door cute, it's Morgan Pressel over Paula Creamer by a mile. I do not find Creamer and Gulbis attractive. The hottest professional golfer is not much of a claim. With very few exceptions, friends of mine, and many more women with whom I ride the subway, blow the doors off any golfer I've seen.
  11. This year I found myself playing the Titleist DT Solo more than any other ball.
  12. I'm not concerned about brands. As long as the item is neat and sports no large logos, I'm game. To my eye, Pringle or Lyle & Scott look best. In 2008, I'll wear a necktie on course at least for one round. Ties rock.
  13. With one-third of his season complete, will Tampa Bay Lightening centre Vincent Lecavalier hold-off Sidney Crosby et al. to win the Art Ross trophy in 2007-2008? The contenders: Lecavalier - 42 points in 27 games (1.56 points per game), Ilya Kovalchuk - 37 points in 26 games (1.42 ppg), Daniel Alfredsson - 37 points in 25 games (1.48 ppg), Henrik Zetterberg - 37 points in 27 games (1.37 ppg), Sidney Crosby - 37 points in 26 games (1.42 ppg).
  14. 2006 net sales, golf Fortune Brands: $1.313.4 billion, +3.8% adidas Group: €856 million, +20.8% Callaway Golf: $1.017.9 billion, +2.0
  15. One I like is Going Low by Patrick Cohn. It stresses the 3 C's of sport psychology, confidence, concentration and composure with emphasis on eliminating preconceived limitations. I'll have to look into Rotella's work.
