  1. Lime Tree, The Haggar pants are also available in a flat front style! In my experience with the flat front pants the pockets also flare open a bit more than the pleated pants do.
  2. I've been wearing Haggar Cool 18 brand with the pleats. They also have an expanding waist built in. You may have to go online to get the proper inseam length as J.C. Penny and Kohl's do not carry all of the inseam lengths. They seem to carry mostly even lengths (28,30,32) Usually you can find 29,31 on most colors that are available.
  3. Good to see many people take care of the equipment so well! I also stay on top of cleaning my equipment. I wipe the clubheads after each shot as needed and fill a bucket when I get home with soapy water. A short soak for each club, a nylon brush to take off the stubborn stuff in the grooves, a quick rinse of clean water and dried with a towel. Once I'm finished I put them back in the bag. The golf ball(s) I used get cleaned also. Add new tees if needed are put in the bag. I'll usually clean the grips every other time I play as I've found they last a lot longer that way. Shoes dry out for a bit while cleaning was taking place and then I wipe them off and polish if needed. If not, I put the shoe trees in them while they fully dry. I take out the trees the next day. I have another pair in the rotation if I get to play two days in a row.(Rarely!)
  4. With snow on the ground here since late November I'll even watch reruns of golf! The indoor ranges help but it's a long 4-5 months before golf resumes here! I did watch the October start of the 2016-2017 season.
  5. Picked up an old Ping Cushin Putter at 2nd Swing the same length as the one I purchased 40 years ago. Stripped off the grips on both of them, swingweighted them both. Added a few grams of weight down the shaft of the recent purchase to make them identical. Ordered a couple of matching putter grips and will install them when they get here. One for the current bag here at home and one for the bag at the lake. Plan to go up later in the week so I'm hoping they arrive this afternoon or tomorrow.
  6. I just started to read Zen Golf this past weekend. I was given the book a few years back by my wife and put it on my desk. Like many things, it disappeared for a long time! I was straightening out my golf club area in the basement to put away the clubs and found Zen Golf and two other "mental side" of golf books in a box. I'm planning on reading them all this winter and pick up the one that appeals to me the most for a re-read in the Spring.
  7. I get to see the Grandkids more this time of the year with their birthdays and the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays!

  9. Hello everyone! I've migrated over from freegolfinfo.com. I don't often post at any the three or four forums that I joined a decade or so ago. Generally I just follow interesting discussions but rarely post. I retired July 1st this year after a forty two year career as a Steamfitter/Pipefitter/Welder. Five years ago I played to a 10.3 index but only played 4 or 5 times a year for the past 4 seasons! Late this fall I played every three or four days for three weeks and there were positive signs that I might play in the mid-eighties more often. Winter put a stop to the season last Friday so I'll find out next Spring!
