  1. I remember when I first joined here, FreeDrop was causing trouble and that was really, really odd.
  2. Yeah I find I do a lot of 9 irons and PWs where I would normally do a SW. personally I’d like to work up the confidence to have more shots available when the course is sopping wet, generally I hit what I think I am most. O for table with. the conditions I am talking about are not just soft. Generally it’s where about 25% of the fairways have standing water on them because it rains so much. We generally are on the cart path from late November until May
  3. That’s a good point. I tend to overthink things. Thanks!
  4. Hey everyone, I live somewhere where most of the winter is wet conditions and I was wondering if I should switch to wedges with a higher bounce for the winter. In other words, would it make much of a difference? current wedges: Vokey 50.08 and Vokey 56.10. (Both sm7) older wedges with higher bounce: Vokey 50.12 and Vokey 56.14. (Sm4) my swing type is more of a sweeper. I don’t often take a divot, with wedges I might take a small one but I don’t take long or deep divots. opinions? I was thinking of switching for a couple weeks and seeing what difference t
  5. I didn’t read what Rory said as being against BDC at all. He was wondering how someone could overpower the golf course the way that he did, I think the headline was misleading. Bryson, whether people agree or not, is trying new things and afaik doing it completely legally. People have a right to challenge whether that is good for the game or not, but I didn’t think Rory was criticizing him personally. Just saying he’s taken advantage of things that others haven’t. I don’t think bad of him for doing his science stuff, I just don’t like his attitude sometimes. That headlin
  6. I use Vice on and off. I originally got them because I thought they were a higher end ball with great colors. At the time, no ball I would game made a pink, red or even decent lime. I echo what other people think. I think they are below ProVs and Snell, also the TP5s. Vice feels harder off a putter than any of those, and the greens I play are fast. I want a soft feel for fast greens. But I’d say I play one a decent amount of the time. Best red color I’ve found. Generally a ball is 8-12 holes so if the paint gets knicked it’s not a big problem as long as it’s not cut. They are
  7. He can be abrasive and has been caught a few times where some people think he acts like an ass. Having someone win a major where a percentage of people have issues with him is going to bring out negativity. Unlike someone you might just go “meh” to. I don’t think it’s bad for the game, but unfortunately he’s someone I would root against. Not the only thing, but someone who lashes out at a cameraman about hurting his brand is not someone I’m going to enjoy winning. Ricky Fowler is uber conscious of his “brand” but doesn’t act like that. BD acts like the game has to bend to him. Not
  8. The closest we seem to have is Billy Mayfair who has the worst reputation (maybe Reed has it now) for consistent cheating. Reed has had a better career, IMO. But those 1-2 shots here and there that you save by cheating can be the difference in how you place and that can translate to serious money.
  9. I’d chalk it up to automation sending out letters. I used to get tons of letters even after I renewed. Because I used to live in the ass end of nowhere, I wasn’t thinking about golf until the hell mouth thawed out, so it would lapse and even after I renewed I would get a couple. I’ll bet that stuff is out sourced so they’ll keep sending sometimes no matter what.
  10. It may not be perfect but it does do a lot of good, generates a lot for charity and gives people the ability to see amazing things.
  11. I took my kids to see if today and overall feel better about it. I disagree with some of the undoing they did from 7 and 8, however seeing it a second time allowed me to stop trying to keep up and feel the proper emotional beats. They did do way too many callbacks, and Easter eggs and the movie is overloaded. Some characters are just wasted. They needed more cohesion between Rian Johnson’s movie. it has its issues, more so than the prior 2 films (7 and 8).
  12. Trying to do too much is not the worse crime a movie can make, but this movie actually makes the rest of the trilogy worse.
  13. Haney is a great example of the size of his ego being disproportionate to the size of his brain. Must be great to play poker against. whatever cards he has, he doubles down....
  14. too bad Tiger ran out of captain's picks. he could have pulled in Billy Mayfair and had them team together. how could they lose?
  15. I've done from thinking this guy had a rough time earlier in life and was affected by that, hence some of the scrapes he has gotten into.....to just an outright jerk. I don't even think what he said there was all that bad. He claimed it wasn't intentional, and yeah it's a competition so you try to use criticism to motivate you. But what ever happened to "hey, I didn't mean it. I screwed up. Let's move on, and I can understand why people are upset."
  16. Davis Love III in an early debut?
  17. There was a time that I was playing with some real idiots. I was paired up with them, and they were using my score for whatever game they were playing. That's fine by itself, but they starting telling me what to do and that they were counting on my score so don't screw up. At one point, I was told, when my ball was on the other side of the hole and I was first to play, "you need to help me find my ball, I have money on this". Two holes later, when searching for his ball again, I saw it in the woods and didn't say anything, let him take a penalty instead of being able to punch it out
  18. For pretty much the entire round I was behind a threesome as a single. The course wasn't too crowded, and as the round progressed they were falling a little behind each hole the foursome in front of them. The course doesn't have any parallel holes and there is pretty much always some kind of drive between holes, so it wasn't easy to see how far behind they were, and if I could just go around them until after I finally did. They started with people on the green while they were on the hole, but after a while, when I pulled behind them they didn't have anyone on the hole in front of them.
  19. Welcome! I used to live in Western PA and there is a lot of great golf. Enjoy both the golf and this forum.
  20. I don't own any, but used to play with someone who did. They are beautiful!
  21. That would be a single piece of paper, really. I never have to buy golf balls, I am lucky enough to find enough of them. As long as clubs fit, they don't have to be expensive or even new. My driver is 7 years old and I don't see spending a lot of money for new woods as worth it. eBay is great for both woods (which tend to be standard length) and irons, because I have found ones with my specs (upright + longer than standard). In fact, I haven't bought woods anywhere else but eBay for 12+ years. Golf courses don't have to be expensive, in fact playing a cheap goat path is enjoyable wh
  22. My old home course in PA had 6 sets of tees and did not really breakdown between men and women except for the red tees, which were fifth of the sixth. The sixth set were juniors or beginners. If you were a woman who hit the ball further than a casual player, then you most likely were playing the fourth or third set of tees. Men technically had 4 sets of tees, but it was strictly by distance, and how far you hit the ball. And they had hybrid tees of different sets of tees for people in-between, so it cut out some of the trouble if you were struggling on the higher set. It was ver
