  1. PING's Color Code System

    Perhaps the rep that told you black dot is just looking at stock measurements ( like diagram 1). I always gamed ping irons and thought the dot is only lie angle. Not sure if that helps.
  2. iPhone Getting too Big

    I carry a Samsung note and if I could find a bigger phone I would buy it. Fits in any pocket of any pants I own fine.
  3. Trying to Hit the Ball Picking Cart?

    I try to hit my wedges into the picker part behind the cart.
  4. Hilton Head not only will have reasonably lodging prices but tons of great food and activities away from the course. Golf is not limited to on the island where you have courses ranging from $30-$300 per round. Quite a few of them are former private clubs so they have decent practice facilities. Lake Oconee lodging would more than likely have to be a house. There you will find Reynolds Plantation which has over 100 holes plus a Taylor made instruction facility. Each course there has their own range and short game facility (could be pricey but would think they would be willing to work with you). There also are a few other cousin on the lake, Cuscowilla and Harbor Club are both nice while Cuscowilla was a top 5 course a year or two ago. You are only 45 min from UGA and their course is solid with a good practice facility.
  5. Hilton Head or Lake Oconee area are worth a look. Plenty of golf in both of those places.
  6. Shipping clubs for a trip

    I am pretty sure the same people load up the UPS/FedEx flights.
  7. Music on the course - When did this become a thing?

    A couple guys in my weekend group play music. Most of us walk so it rarely is a problem. However I do not like sharing a cart with one who plays music. Rather spend time with nature.
  8. In How Many States Have You Played Golf?

    IN, OH, IL, GA, FL, SC, and NC (if you count an errant tee shots final resting place that I did not attempt to retrieve)
  9. How many holes a day to improve?

    Lessons are not that expensive as I have recently found. Get an assessment of your swing and a couple priority pieces and then you can work on them alone for a couple weeks before going back for a check up.
  10. Ping g25 vs g20

    I play the g25s and love them but as @WUTiger has said I would lean towards the color and lie angle that fits your swing. If you do not know which is for you and you cannot have a proper fitting there is a static fitting chart for Ping. Each year since I got the g2s I have gone to demo day with an open mind and have yet to find another brand/line that I like better. However I am excited about new titleist irons. Additionally, I have found that originally the 5-pw was sufficient for me but lately I wish I has at least a 4 iron and maybe even a 3. Hybrids are great replacements but I struggle with solid contact in the rough with hybrids when the ball is down.
  11. Why is America so fat?

    He meant getting there.
  12. Indianapolis to South Bend couses

    I have actually played them both. Do you (or anyone else) have insight into their condition recently?
  13. Indianapolis to South Bend couses

    $350/person tops
  14. I am looking for suggestions on courses to play between IND and SB. Unfortunately we already booked flights and cannot make it to Crooked Stick in time. Public or private, just looking for very well kept tracks.
  15. Parity on tour

    I think it is great. If you don't like parity you can watch just about any other sport our there. What is the fun in watching if you know what is going to happen?
