  1. I really have to agree with you. Of course, anyone can play any ball and play well but when push comes to shove the Pro V1 is the gold standard. There simply is no other ball that performs like it. Overpriced? abso---friggin----lutely. I play at about an 8 using Callaway HX Hot...not a lot to work with around the green but overall they suit me. I have also played and loved the I(s) and the Chrome balls...all excellent... Bridgestone makes a fine series....getting back to Titleist....I find the NXT series overrated and certainly, like anything Titleist...over priced.
  2. facts are facts, if it disturbs you I'd suggest a therapy to deal with your demons.

    I agree...and when will they ever broadcast a new "Feherty"?
  4. 1.) Masters (the true American National Championship), 2.) The Open (the one across the pond) and 3.) Can I say "Ryder Cup"? never watch the u.s. open, would rather watch a golf tournament. if I want to watch players hack and hope the ball down the fairway I'll go to the local municipal.
  5. getting a lot of attention for someone who can't seem to earn a tour card. fact is, if she wasn't name "woods" and white you wouldn't see one pixel spent of that tournament.
  6. whan could sell oil to arabs. In all of that text I think Tontj5 missed one very important thing....Whan sells the LPGA for what it is. It's not the PGA, it's not the Web.com Tour, its not the Champions Tour and all those efforts by the LPGA in the past to try and sell the quality of play on a level of any of the men's tours made them look ridiculous. Whan just sells some decent golf played by very good and congenial people that are very competitive with each other as entertainment and nothing more. He's done a hell of a job.
  7. You'll enjoy yourself tremendously and the advice you have received here is excellent. You will, indeed, be impressed by how hilly it is, and also how long. The chutes that many of the tee shots have to fly through (between the pines) are impressive. It is definitely a "big boy" golf course. I would suggest a few stops for you: 1) the practice area. it's huge and if you're there early you'll see everyone out there, including the hangers on...the harmons, etc. 2) get your photo taken in front of the clubhouse, and 3) get a good look at the members having lunch outside their private area,
  8. played in recreational leagues with a max. of double par...thank God.
  9. my course has a Monday 2 man scramble event. my partner and I were sent out with a team of a 75 yr old and a 73 yr old. We combined for 8 or 9 under...they shot -15 ( front tees, no mulligans, no gimmees). they say your putting gets weaker as you grow older, well I don't think either one of those guys missed one inside ten ft.

    I retract my statement about Paige and "sexy", got confused, happens to old people.

    I guess the dropped the "The" to make is sound more important...fact is everyone calls it THE golf channel, even the tour pros, so all of the money they spent rebranding has been one huge waste. I continue to use it just because it somehow makes me able to remind them they aren't what they think they are or should be. Not a good reason I know, but my way of telling them to step it up. I look at the THE golf channel as a failure in realizing potential. The infusion of NBC has helped a lot, but until they really clean house.....Tighlman, Lerner, Isenhower, the entire crew of morning drive they r

    he's not so much the problem as the bias and drooling on the TGC set, mostly by Kelly and Slow Lerner. I used to watch all of Golf Central, it comes on at 5:00 p.m. here...now I wait until 5:20 or so....the Tiger butt kissing adoration period is usually over by then, though not always. The last ten minutes or so are decent.

    from the looks of her eyes, I'm guessing alcohol.
  14. I have a RBZ 4 Rescue and have the same hooking issue. No doubt, the ball just screams off the club so I've spent a long time trying to figure it out but I'm giving up. I can hit wonderful shots, but I just don't know what's going to happen each time I pull it. I now have an Adams 5 wood and a couple of Adams hybrids to cover the 190 - 225 range. I wish I could help you, I can only empathize. Bought the thing because I always love the old R7 rescues and thought it would be similar. Wrong.
