    Fake Cameron?

    Cameron typically mills their heads from solid blanks of steel, so i wouldn't find mill marks on the back a counterfeit red flag. But i honestly dont remember if any of the ones ive owned had them. You can check that serial code with titleist. They can usually tell you if its a fake or not. If you like the putter and it feels good to you, does it matter if its a "real" scotty cameron or not?
  2. I have a set of old mcgregor persimmons and irons. But i never use them. Id like to use them every now and then but real reason i dont is actually because of the grips are all ratty and torn up. And im too cheap to regrip an entire set of clubs ill only use once or twice a year.

    The Match: Tiger vs. Phil Showdown for $9M

    For the good of golf (and sports in general) please don't pay $20 to see this nonsense. If its successful more and more is going to get hidden behind paywalls.

    Playing with Irons Only

    If you're struggling to hit a big ass 460cc head driver, i wouldn't think a 2iron is the answer, but ok.... Ive played rounds with just irons and wedges and not shot much higher than i usually do. But im also scratch player. I can hit a long iron pretty consistently from 200+ yards out. The average player probably needs to work on his ballstriking if they're struggling so much with driver accuracy.
  5. I don't have any experience with the Taylormade irons, but im not a fan of the 716 AP2. Id actually consider the 714 series AP2 if you're still waffling and want to go with the titleist brand. Its the best blend of forgiveness and playability in that iron. The product line became progressively harder to hit after the 714, regardless of what their marketing says.

    Question - New Caddy Rule 2019

    Ive only seen that happen a couple times on the LPGA. And it was always before the stroke. Didn't think it was that much of an issue to require a rules modification.

    5 wood vs 3 hybrid

    The hybrids will be easier to hit from the rough, and in general are more versatile. I also think a traditional 5 wood maybe a little longer than a 3 hybrid. But you'll hit the 5wood further. If you imagine yourself using the club from the tee alot or most often play a course where the rough isnt very high, the the 5wood is probably better is you're looking for distance from the club. If you want control and versatility, go with the hybrid.

    Nobody is going to get DQ'd for that level of minutia in a club tournament...

    MLB (Baseball) 2018 Season

    This has a feel of a Brewers/Redsox World Series to me. Nobody can get out Christain Yelich out right now. Except Jacob DeGrom. Lucky for Yelich DeGrominant decided he needed some rest this postseason.

    Yelling "FORE!" - When Do You, and How Do You React?

    I usually just duck in place. I never look up. Seen what can happen if you do that. I hid behind a friend at the club championship i played in last weekend. Human shield is also acceptable.

    How Many Shots Should Your Ball Last?

    Beats me. 🤷‍♂️ Ive heard some people say that 6-9 holes is all a tour type ball has in it before it becomes oblong. Ive used the same ball over 36 holes without any issue that i could notice. But for recreational play i will use a ball until it gets scuffed or I take a chunk out of it with a wedge or something. Then its retired to the shag bag for short game practice. For tournament play ill put in a new ball at the start of the round.

    Spectator loses eyesight at Ryder Cup

    Some courses I've played or been members at had insurance for when a player hits errant ball that damages property or person. Would assume a place like LE GOLF NATIONAL would have similar policy. I don't think this lady can sue Koepka for damages directly. But I'm not really up to date on my French Tort...
