  1. Though I am a registered Democrat, I have voted Republican in my local elections. As I get older my social views have gotten a lot more conservative and I have always been a fiscal conservative. I find myself shut out by the democratic party because of it's turn to the left. I haven't seen a candidate from the them that is moderate in a long time so I don't think I will remain a Democrat.
  2. Most of my clubs are from e-bay. The problem is that I am the "kid in a candy store" when I have all this high end items in front of me going for lower prices then the OEM's at a retail golf store. I use the retail stores only to try out new heads but it doesn't do me any good because they don't have the shafts I want to try and they play games with the launch monitor to make more sales.
  3. 2005 4 rounds 2006 13 rounds 2007 43 rounds 2008 40-60??? Most of my rounds are from April to early December.
  4. My wife got me a Tumi cart bag so I have to use it...
  5. I use gametracker as part of my Amateur Tour membership. Some of the course ratings/slopes are a bit off and they sometimes don't have all the tees. I haven't used any of the other functions. Sorry I couldn't be of more assistance.
  6. FWIW, in the NY Metro-Long Island tour the $199 membership fee is only good for 1 calender year.
  7. I am a Cash Manager working for a church pension plan in NYC.
  8. The first tape I ever bought was Beastie Boys - License to Ill. I was in 6th grade, and the bus driver popped in the tape on our senior class trip to Lancaster, PA. The whole bus was singing along to every song. Ah, the memories. Anyways, to my best of: Hip - Hop: Beastie Boys - Paul Revere (Can still recite the lyrics word for word to this day) Tribe Called Quest - Check the Rhime (Low End Theory is one of my favorite albums De La Soul - Buddy (the best ensemble rap of all time next too.....) Marley Marl - The Symphony Gangstarr- Dwyck BDP - Material Love Rock: Pantera: Cowboys from Hell Metallica: For Whom the Bell Tolls Tesla: Love Song Queen: Bohemian Rhapsody The Doors: People Are Strange Steve Miller Band: The Joker Motley Crue: Same Ol' Situation Pop/Other: Depeche Mode: Shake the Disease New Order: Regret Louis Prima: Just a Gigalo Frank Sinatra: The Way You Look Tonight Frank Sinatra: Fly Me to the Moon

    The Wedge Game

    I technically have 5 wedges right now. My R7XD PW is 44 deg and the AW is 49. I also carry three not-set wedges (52, 56, 60). My home course is short, even from the tips (6300 yds). Edit: I have a 50 degree on the way so I will be moving the 49 and 52 out of the bag.
  10. I just joined the tour in my area (NY Metro - Long Island) toward the end of this past season. I didn't play in the actual point events. I played in the two modified stableford events that were meant to introduce new players to the league. The events are fun and you do normally play with the same people. There is a pull-down in the registration for each event where you can request your preferred partners. I have met a great bunch of guys that I would love to play with more often. Also, you get to play some courses that you don't normally have a chance to play (at least in my case). My problem so far has been the cost of the events. I've heard the costs vary depending on location. For us, each event costs between $130-$160 and most do not include any food or beverages. I've heard that other locations only charge $80-$100 due to lower local costs. One benefit of the tour is that you can sign up for events out of your area. For example, if you are on vacation in Florida you can register for their events. All in all, it has been great so far except for the cost.
  11. Is it a problem when everyone in the store knows you by name, even the noobs? Multiply that by four stores, and that is my situation. Do I have a problem? Is there a Golf Store Anonymous?
  12. Andy, I have taken lessons from two instructors in the NYC area. 1. Andrew Lim - Future Golf - (718)591-7701 - Located on Union Tpke in Flushing.

  13. This one is easy: Anna Natalie's face is busted, she has no hind quarters (I am a hind quarters man) and she talks like she has marbles in her mouth.
