  1. Also sent via the form. I hope Natalie and Zoey will be able to play!
  2. Hey all, hate to do this last minute but I need to drop out... family emergency. If anyone has been sitting on the fence waiting for an opening or has a friend who wants to join in the fun. Now's the time. Hope you all have a great time! Keep it out of the vortex between 15 and 16 (right?) at WW.
  3. I can’t do that weekend, but Shambles are a pretty good format. Good luck and have fun!
  4. Finally! After 18+ months of trying, I recorded a No-Sixes round last weekend. All told: 9 bogeys, 8 pars, 1 birdie = 79 (par 71). It wasn't a spectacular round, just fairly steady. One under on the three par 5s; eight over on the 11 par 4s, one over on the four par 3s.
  5. Rae's Creek is filling up. Wow!
  6. One of the more impressive 2-putt pars I've seen in a while.
  7. That pin on 15 looked like it was almost on the 16 tee! I don't recall it ever being that far over. The water on 16 could actually become a concern with the pin there. Interesting.
  8. It’s been a decade since my last Newport Cup appearance. Would love to join the fun again if it works out. Vegas, baby!
  9. https://thesandtrap.com/b/review/callaway_apex_hybrid_review As you found, there should be some great deals out there right now on the 2016 version as the 2019 is coming out.
  10. Product Name: Birdicorn Divot Tool + Ball Mark Product Type: Multi-Purpose Ball Mark Repair Tool Product Website/URL: https://birdicorn.com/ Cost: $25 (currently on sale for $22) Ratings (out of 5): Quality: 4 Value: 4 Effectiveness: 4.5, Does a lot. Most of it pretty well. Durability: 5 Esthetic Appeal: 5 My Member Review The Birdicorn is in a crowded space and one that, at least on the surface, does not lend itself to much room for innovation. I mean, what are you going to do to improve the divot tool? A usable ball mark repair tool has to work the way golfe
  11. Anyone who thinks graphite shafts are only for older players hasn't been paying attention to the shaft market. Recent graphite iron shafts are nothing like their older "whippy" relatives. These days graphite can be made to respond essentially identically to steel, perhaps better. Graphite shafts can be as stiff as boards while still being as light as feathers or as heavy as premium "tour weight" steel shafts. They can also still be made to hit a ball straight up with a 4-iron (I'm exaggerating, but you get the point). Use what fits your game best, whether that's steel, graphite, hickory, or ba
  12. I'm going to try to get something put together in the next week or two. Let me know if any weekends are better than others.
  13. With the absolute nature of the phrasing, I have to vote no. While I think there are definitely occasions when a pro (some more than others) might be whiny and act like a bratty child, I certainly don't think you can say they all are or even most on a given day. Plus, how many of us don't sometimes get whiny when the golf gods have seemingly forsaken us? I'm not proud of it, but I have had a few golf tantrums on a course that would not have played well had their been a TV camera documenting my theatrics. Now, are they spoiled? The kind of money that can be made by merely making cut
  14. Unless they have it hidden in there somehow, the Surefit CG does not appear to be part of the TS2, but it looks like there is at least one weight port (I wonder if it will be player adjustable or factory/fitter set). The TS3 clearly retains the CG weight tube in the design.
