  1. The wife is talking about upgrading her iron set. She currently hits Wilson 100's. She does not want to spend more than 300-400 hundred. I have looked on line and tried to find some recommendations/reviews but there are not many. Unfortunately there aren't that many to hit at local shop that are under 600 hundred bucks. Any suggestions? Looking for 6-GW. She loves her current hybrids (4-5).
  2. Yea I agree. Not sure if they are still available but I ordered four dozen of the MTB (2017) ball for 25.00 per dozen. I personally like the older version better than the new one.

    Johnny Miller's Legacy

    I voted player. I too remember his playing career so I guess I always gave him more credence as a broadcaster because he'd been there as a player. But I can definitely understand picking broadcaster before player. But "I got off the fence", and voted.

    Clubs You're Most Likely to Replace Before Next Season?

    I might replace hybrids. Keep going back and forth between them and irons. I like how easy it is to hit them but just can't seem to find the right one. I think it's more of shaft issue.

    Srixon Golf Balls

    Actually been switching back and forth between the z-star and MTB Snell ball. Both are very similar but I think the Srixon might go a little further off of the tee.

    Paul Azinger to Replace Johnny Miller on NBC

    I kinda liked Johnny. I know he rubbed some players the wrong way but I always thought he shot straight with most of his comments. I will say that the only thing I like about Fox's golf coverage is Azinger. I just hate to see Johnny go. I still miss Venturi. Faldo is okay but I would like to see someone like a Raymond Floyd. Maybe Fred Couples? I think someday we will see Phil in the booth. He might be pretty good.

    Favorite Thing About Golf

    Last weekend I had to get up early and take the car in for service. My wife got a couple new hybrids at the beginning of the week and decided she wanted to go to the range Saturday morning after I dropped the car off. We hit some balls on the range and then she decided she wanted to play 9 holes. We went out and played nine holes just hitting the ball and not really trying to hard. She shot a 42 and I was one under. I usually don't play early because I hate how wet the course is in the morning but the temperature was finally in the 60's and there was no one on the nine holes we played. Usually I don't get that peace until twilight in the evenings. We actually went into the club and had breakfast after we were done. That is my favorite thing about golf. When I do something different (or play a different course that turns out to be fun) and enjoy it. I like the peaceful part of the game.

    Assigning Credit and Blame in the Cups

    I gave a little more to course set up than most (20%). I think that the courses are going to be set up for the strength of each team as we have seen the past couple cups.
  9. I found it amusing that Earl Woods is buried in Kansas in an unmarked grave. I guess all that cheating on his wife didn't really pay off in the end. Sounds like he had a good time though. He sure took a lot of the credit for Tiger becoming the golfer he has become.
  10. I have the 100 and it works pretty well. As mentioned above I have to make sure it's positioned in the right spot. I have never used it with a net. Once I get it in the right spot, no problems.

    Snell Golf Ball Deal

    Great Deal. I just ordered four dozen.😂

    Ian Poulter - Ass

    I personally have not seen Poulter be an ass but I have seen some of the other players that have been mentioned throughout this thread be real pricks. A lot of those guys live in Florida and I had occasions to witness some of the guys who live in the Orlando area. There are actually a couple more that have not been mentioned (who have won a couple green jackets) that are especially "douchey". As a matter of fact, one of them just sucked it up at the Ryder Cup.😏 And as mentioned above...I have seen Lee Trevino many times in person and he is not the same guy "off camera" as he is when the camera is on him. All that being said, they live in a world that I am not familiar with. Maybe it changes you?

    Are you a brand snob?

    I had been a Taylormade loyalist for about 15 years. But in the past year or two I have completely removed all most all of them from my bag. I hit Ping irons now and Callaway woods. I still use Taylormade hybrids. I have also realized that I'm not really a ball snob. I usually play the best ball I can get for the best price. There are still premium balls but it is usually all over the place (Snell, Chrome soft and even some of Maxifli balls from Dicks that are cheap and work pretty well).

    2018 Ryder Cup at Le Golf National - Paris, France

    It seems to me that the home course advantage is becoming more of an issue. All I have heard is that the courses are set up to favor the home teams advantages. That being said, maybe that should factor into the captain's picks a little bit more than it did this time.

    2018 Ryder Cup at Le Golf National - Paris, France

    Jim Furyk was a “milk toast” captain. Nick Saben listens to his assistant coaches but makes the ultimate decision. Too many buddies playing together and then other pairings that are just head scratchers. Nobody even looked like they wanted to be there. Captains pick went 2-10-1. Phil should have stayed home. Bubba Watson? Spieth? Fowler?Sergio was crap all year but he showed up. I guess the Team Europe is just tougher? The Ryder cup means more to them?
