  1. That appears to be about how you go about it. Some golf shops offer a "anti-rattle" kit, that's a foam of sorts to stop this. You'll have to read up on the instructions, I've not done one myself. http://www.golfsmith.com/products/82...r_1_oz_Package
  2. Before you cut them down, put a piece of tape on there to act as a reminder to choke up. Some folks prefer this anyhow (Anthony Kim is one that comes quickly to mind) When you do cut them down, using a hacksaw is a tough way to go. A tubing cutter (with a wheel for cutting steel tubing) does a good job, so does a chop saw, or a die grinder with a cutoff wheel. Be sure to buy new grips, or wait until you need new ones before cutting away, they'll pretty well get ruined in getting them off (I don't even try to save them, I just cut off grips)
  3. It should really make for some exciting tournaments. Admittedly, I don't watch much European tour golf, even when it's aired, simply because I don't recognize many of the players. I'll tune in to more of them this next season though. Dubai's on my wish list for amazing places to visit before I die. It's absolutely gorgeous.
  4. Look at used offerings, you may really find a good score. Also, ask if the price marked is final; often they can adjust pricing on used clubs (especially if you're a good customer to them) The new Cleveland putters are supposed to be in that range, aside from that, I don't know of any off hand in that price range new. Check and see what all they stock, and hit them all. It should be fun to go and hit a bunch of new putters, to find the one that fits you, and your game, the best.
  5. Count me in. I love surprises! *be sure to include your return address on the package too.
  6. I've got an impact panel net at home, and after looking around for quite a while, I just wouldn't be happy with any of the fiberglass pole jobs that are offered at the golf and sporting goods stores. I ordered from http://www.brunsonnet.com/index.cfm?...category_id=70 They're super nice folks, and build a super quality product that will last for many years of hard use and weather. For my practice screen, a mat and the hardware to hang it, I've got about the same $ invested as what I would have spent for just a practice net from the sporting goods stores. For pics of my setup: ht
  7. Interestingly, the two worst courses I played were both located near a trailer park (
  8. Here's one idea how: Get your company associated with AGC or ABC. Sign up or volunteer to work on one of their golf committees that organizes golf tournaments. You'll make contacts galore. (they may call it a social or fundraising committee)
  9. I say go for it! Start listening to bluegrass music if you want to hear some of the best uke and mandolin players out there.
  10. I lost all respect for Nashville when they started pimping a bunch of poofs with frosted hair wearing turtlenecks as country artists. Give me Max Stalling, 1100 Springs, CCR, Daril Dodd, Hank III (plus Assjack, I still love punk too), Robert Earl Keen, Shooter Jennings, Randy Rogers, Brian Burns, Ray Wylie Hubbard and the rest of their ilk any day.
  11. I stock up on balls once or twice a season, so sometimes there's 3-4 dozen in there, and others there's only 3-4.
  12. You're a madman!!! I'm jelous. That's a lot of cool stuff that the Santa in the brown truck's gonna be delivering to your place!
  13. OK - here we go: #905 - shows how I set my bag and mat #907 - shows the bungee that I use to help absorb some shock, and keep the net just taut enough that the ball doesn't whack the shed, but loose enough that the ball doesn't bounce back to me. #908 - these are the stakes I use. It takes 5 to set it up the way I have it now. 2 for the bungees on the sides, and three across the front.
  14. Here ya go (more pics in following post, with some explanation): #902 - shows my setup #903 - shows my mat. It's this one: http://www.golfsmith.com/products/29...9;_Hitting_Mat #904 - shows how I hang my net. Simple, cheap, weatherproof, and effective. I can take down the net in just a few minutes with standing on a 4 foot ladder.
  15. Hee hee, maybe. Interestingly, BOTL wasn't cut out, just the vendors. Here ya go, cheap cigars that don't suck: http://www.jrcigars.com/index.cfm?pa...rand=CONSUEGRA Stick with the natural, the maduro isn't quite as smooth. http://www.jrcigars.com/index.cfm?pa...itemcode=JRAFS These are a awfully darn good alternative (clone?) of the Arturo Fuente Hemingway. I've had them a number of times, and continue to order them when I can. http://www.jrcigars.com/index.cfm?pa...temcode=JRUPSW I've had the real deal *wink, wink, but I've been told from a couple of buddies that t
