  1. I used Shipsticks.com and it was extremely pleasant. After you setup your trip, put the dates in ship sticks to get costs and delivery dates. After that, all I had to do was print the ship sticks provided shipping labels and have my clubs boxed. Ship sticks schedules a delivery pickup (or you can drop-off at many locations) both ways. I think I paid about $75 total for shipping to and from for my vacation from Illinois to Phoenix, AZ I highly recommend them
  2. I appreciate the input from everyone. Thank you for the help.
  3. Hello all! After about a year's worth of research I have decided that I want to construct my own putting green at home using Pencross bentgrass. I have decided to do this because I have recently had a new baby daughter and I am not able to get to the course 2-3 times a week for 4-5 hours like I used to. I do not see that changing for the next few years. Between my daughter and my job, it is getting more difficult to get golf in. I believe I have found a good solution by building a putting green at home with a chipping area. I firmly believe that if I can just get outside a few ni
  4. Picked up a dozen of these a couple weeks ago and thought I would share my experience with them. I have currently been gaming the Q-Star most of the year with great results. I bought these because I was intrigued by the marketing from Wilson being "long and soft." I paid less than $20 for the dozen with hopes of finding a new ball in the $20-25 range. I took the balls to the putting green for practice. I was thrilled at the soft feel of the ball while putting and chipping. Spin and bite performance was excellent and very tight. I felt the Wilson had a slight edge in bite performa
  5. Awesome! Being a Manufacturing Engineer, I love the behind the scenes look of manufacturing facilities. I see Ping has implemented a lot of MES Systems and mistake-proofing procedures to help with quality and delivery.
  6. Got to meet Wes Roach and Ricky Barnes at work on Wednesday. Pretty cool guys got to sit down and talk for about 45 minutes. Wes had a good round Thursday.
  7. Thank you for the advice. I will try that next time at the range.
  8. I've been Playing Golf for: 2.5 years My current handicap index or average score is: 9.4 My typical ball flight is: Baby-Fade The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: Pull and Straight-Draw Videos:
  9. Since the driver is physically the longest club in most bags, it's going to be the hardest to hit if you have swing flaws. Since the club is longer, any small flaws in your swing mechanics are more dramatic because the head gets further out of line. Try to make sure you are keeping your arms in that nice "V" shape and concentrate on your swing path. To do this, you are going to have to slow your swing speed down. Make sure the club head is square at impact and you aren't on an out-to-in plane (cutting across) when coming across the ball. I used to have the same problem, but I am much happier w
  10. The most important question is.....if you don't spend the money on fitted clubs, are you constantly going to be wondering if your game is lacking because you don't have "properly" fitted clubs? For me, the extra money seemed worth it because I could take the clubs out of the equation. I knew I had been fitted properly, so now I know if I get a bad result, it's because I made a bad swing. I spent a lot of money and time putting my bag together and since completing it, I have yet to wonder if I've got the right clubs in my bag. When I first started golfing with lower-grade equipmen
  11. I played with my settings almost every time I went to the course for the first month I had the driver. After that, I found that I had the best average results at 10.5 degrees and I haven't changed the loft in over a year. I loved the idea at first, being able to dial in the loft to match every hole distance, but for the average handicap player who is already hitting inconstant distances, it basically negates the purpose of the adjustable loft. From my testing, I just didn't see much difference from 11-2.5 degrees of adjustments when I am getting a difference of +/- 20-25 yards on a non-
  12. I am always paranoid of losing clubs. I try to make a conscious effort of counting all 14 clubs every 3-4 holes. That way if I do forget one, I don't have to back track very far to try and find it, and it reduces the amount of groups behind me who may have come across it.
  13. I have made the switch to Pro V1s this year and have been experimenting. I started off buying OEM Pro V1s and obviously I got the best balls with this. I then began experimenting with X-outs and refurbished balls. I could definitely notice a difference when comparing the OEM ball to a refurbished ball. The refurbished ball just does not have the some consistency from ball to ball. I am sure that this is because you are not getting the same year, model, or run of ball like your getting in the OEM package. The refurbished balls gave me a bad impression and it only took 1 dozen to d
  14. Ernest, I warm up with both my SW and gap wedges, while doing so, I am trying to get a feel for how firm the ground is that day. My SW loft is 50, same as my 50 gap wedge, but i've got significantly different degrees of bounce between these two clubs. Whichever club is suiting the ground conditions better on that particular play will be the club I leave in the bag to play with (usually i just always carry 15 clubs because I don't play competitively and my playing partners don't care) Sometimes I am amazed at how much difference I can get between the two different bounces dependin
  15. I always start by chipping around the green. I do 6 shots with each club PW,SW,50,54,58 to get my arms loosened up and get a feel for green roll-out. I then spend about 15 minutes putting - 5 minutes of putts within 5 ft, 5 minutes from 5-10ft, and then 5 minutes from greater than 10 ft or studying grain/break. I then move off to the side and take 5 swings with each Iron, hybrid, wood, and driver. I am just focusing on getting my back loosened up as well as making sound swing paths. I head to the tee box about 10 minutes early. Spend most of that time getting everything in place
