  1. I'd look at Ping G irons from the past couple years. You could get a gently used set from like 2014 for just a couple hundred bucks.
  2. How have I never seen this?? @boogielicious how were you not constantly worried about breaking something?!
  3. As long as there aren't any deep scratches, there shouldn't be much of a reason to stop using a new golf ball. They don't "go bad" or anything long that (within reason).
  4. Mmmmmm
  5. Can you imagine explaining modern car transportation to someone even just 100 years ago? It all seems natural now because we've lived with it our entire lives, but the entire operation would be bonkers insane to someone who hasn't. You hop in a box and controlled explosions propel you down roads (sometimes full of potholes, often narrow and with cars on all sides of you). I've been driving nearly 10 years (somewhere just south of 100k miles) and I can count the amount of serious accidents I've seen occur on two fingers. I'm not saying it's particularly safe (air travel is more safe per mile travelled, etc. etc.), just that it's astounding that it's as safe as it is. There are a lot of very, very stupid people out there and yet they seem to drive just fine.
  6. It sounds like you're going to be facing a trade-off either way. Playing nothing but a par-3 course wouldn't be my ideal, but neither is driving an hour every time I wanted to play. I don't know about you, but both would lead me to end up playing less.
  7. I'm serious. For a species whose previous top speed was like 15 MPH I think we do surprisingly well in a metal box careening down a highway at 65.
  8. Can't say it's a shocker.
  9. FWIW, I've never had any issues with polarized lenses. As @iacas pointed out, reading greens with your eyes is so last century. (It's also really just not that bad with polarized lenses. You can still see the same green slope. You don't all of a sudden lose that ability.)
  10. Actually, it amazes how good most people are at driving most of the time.
  11. I have pretty big hands - XL or XXL gloves if I can find them - and use midsize grips. Definitely never going back to standard.
  12. We're way too smart(??) for our own good.
  13. There are only 2 options I can think of: You subconsciously alter your swing to avoid looking into the sun (which ... I'm not sure how you'd look into the sun behind you). It happened a few times and you ascribed blame to the sun even though it doesn't happen all that much.
  14. Instead of "break checking" tailgaters, can't you turn your lights on and off? Or have I been doing that for nothing all this time?
  15. It seems to me that this would have been something to look at a decade and a half ago when golf balls were changing leaps and bounds. The golf ball is pretty stable right now.
