  1. My girlfriend and I just joined a country club for the first time this week, so I've managed to get out and play a bunch already, but I'd never seen wet conditions like this before back when I lived on the east coast, when I golfed in soggy conditions in January and March a few times. The course itself is immaculate but on every shot you have your ball caked in mud. Same thing happened on a few public courses I played on last month. Wisconsin muddiness is quite the thing to behold.
  2. Yeah, but think of how many stakes you can make out of those felled trees! Assuming a level surface where there's no slope that'll make a ball travel farther in one direction than another, it won't ricochet farther away than it would have gone if you missed the flag because of basic physics. You can't get more out of a collision than you put in. ___ I personally like putting with the flag in; it saves me time (not a ton, but when I'm playing alone and trying to get done before dark, I never bother with taking out the flag, save for the rare birdie putt), and the math says I will putt better because of the help. I think this rule as stated will lead to a lot of messing around, but I wouldn't be opposed to the earlier suggestion of having the flags be fixed to the cup so they wouldn't move on their own or be player removable (I'm assuming the groundskeepers would want some locking mechanism as a way to get the stick out for maintenance and moving hole locations).
  3. Waterproof Shoes

    Amazon has Adidas Tour 360 Boost, FootJoy Hyperflex and DNA all for around $100 depending on color and size. I would rank them in that order, although if you wanted to switch the DNA and Hyperflex based on ease to keep clean, that'd be fair.
  4. Golf tees

    I've recently begun playing the Golf Pride Evolution. I break a couple fewer per round, so yay for that. I'm more about the color of the tees I play (neon colors) than anything else. No tee will add so much as an inch to my drive, but I love the sweet colors over the boring natural finish.
  5. Starting After-School Program

    I don't, but I wanted to chime in to say thanks for helping to grow the game among the next generation!
  6. The End of the Blimp on Tour

    Just the opening zeppelins needed to grab market share in pro sports!
  7. BOA's website says that they have a lifetime guarantee, which I assume carries through to a BOA bought on an Adidas shoe. I remember reading that the actual cable is rated for something like 5000 cycles, which is probably longer than the shoe itself will last.
  8. Any WI Golfers on here

    Yah! I'm in central WI. I think. I just moved here and I kinda don't know where anything is, haha. I'm happy to make new golf friends here. Unless @RFKFREAK wants to schlep over to play Intrigue! I feel like I missed a post somewhere...
  9. I loved the idea of the BOA until I tried it on with the Tour 360 Boosts I was shopping for this year at the PGA Tour Superstore. I wound up paying a couple dollars more to not get it. I loved the idea in principle because my previous Adidas Tour 360 ATVs wouldn't stay laced for an entire round, but I didn't like that it concentrated more pressure at the top of the foot versus in the toes. I suddenly missed the ability to adjust that more granularly with laces. It also felt flimsier than I would have liked, though I doubt it actually was. I'm over the moon happy with my Tour 360 Boosts I got last month for $100. I wound up getting my girlfriend a pair in purple for $85 as an early Valentine's Day gift ahead of our golf trip, and she loves them too. I'm curious if this is meant to be Adidas's 2017 flagship shoe. The promotional packaging presentation makes it seem that way, but only six spikes versus the usual 10 is how Adidas tends to differentiate their lower-end golf models. Also, the price point is lower than last year's flagship by $20 ($50 if you apples-to-apples against the BOA version of the Tour 360 Boosts).
