  1. NHL 2017-2018

    Blashill & Holland still are employed for who knows what reason, and the Wings are simply going to repeat what they did last season, which is nothing, as long as the incompetence is to remain at those positions, ugh.
  2. I've never come close to breaking 100, so my expectations at this point are pretty tamed to say the least, but no harm in trying something new, I suppose. Very good to know for these clubs, I appreciate the advice! Heading out next Saturday to try them out on the course after they arrive next week. Granted, I probably should take them to the range first to get a feel for them, just not sure if I'll have time to do so. Trial and error, if anything, ha.
  3. Don't text and drive folks

    My Android S4 & S7 have had that pop up on text automatically whenever I'm connected to Bluetooth while driving and somebody text's me, been very helpful, indeed.
  4. At the moment, I found and am leaning towards a Mizuno MP52, used in Very Good Condition, 4-PW Iron set, which will total roughly $170, so not too shabby at all. Of course it is a stiff flex, but that can always be adjusted to, and might even help my game out a little bit, can't make it any worse, that's for sure! Ha
  5. That's good to know. I've been debating between getting this Zevo complete set, or trying to find a decent quality iron set $150 to $250, that I can use with the current driver I have. Only problem is trying to find one new that isn't poor quality, or one used that doesn't look like it's been beaten to hell and back. Gotta love it!
  6. I hate to bring up an old topic, but I am actually looking into getting a new set, and am by no means looking to break the bank. I just want good, quality clubs that will last a while, considering I only golf maybe 6 or 7 times a year, if lucky enough to do so, and can't justify $500+ clubs at this point. I have seen a Zevo z450 complete club set for under $200 on sale, and was curious if anyone has used them before and what their overall impressions on the clubs themselves were, and if they thought they were indeed a good buy for the cost. Granted, I'm not trying to come across as cheap, but if I can find good quality for under $300 that will last, then by all means, I'll look into it. I can just be leery of either non-big named brand clubs, for fear of being cheap quality and/or breaking easily. I've also checked out the Callaway Strata sets for around $220, but those have gotten very mixed reviews, with some claiming club heads break off and/or just aren't good enough quality to last, which is alarming from a brand like Callaway, in my opinion, of course, they aren't top of the line, but still. Cheers!
  7. Newport Cup

    Sounds like a fun time, indeed, definitely wish I were able to be of the same skill set as many others here. But with as little as I play and how long it'd probably take me to become as proficient as needed, it'd be another 15 years or so, before I'd be able to participate. ha. At least on the plus side, weather looks like it will be perfect, very glad for that. Cheers!
  8. How often do you play?

    March, April, September, October, & November...usually once every 3 to 4 weeks during those months, if I'm lucky.
  9. She gets paid to play golf, I don't really think things can be all that bad, regardless of exposure. If she wants to try out 8 to 5 HR cubicle land and trade spots with me, I'll gladly take it!
  10. What keeps you from playing more golf?

    It's a mix for me. First off, weather. I only golf in the early spring & fall. I hate the heat & humidity of the summer, and I'm a big guy, so no point sweating your butt off during that time of the year. It can be a little expensive at times. I'm not made of money, sadly, and like many others, have to prioritize expenses, bills, etc. As bad as I am, I like to keep it under $50 when I golf and can justify the cost since I don't go out too often, and still have hand me down clubs from a family member, that are about 10-15 years old. Newer clubs would be nice, but right now it's hard to justify $350 to $500 for a quality set of golf clubs. My golfing buddy travels a lot for work as well, so it's all based on his schedule at times, which is understandable. Still always have a good time, though.
  11. NFL 2017-2018

    Our ownerships are just as equally bad, sadly. But on the plus side, Martha Ford at least seems to have a clue as to what is going on, unlike her husband who was just about clueless to absolutely everything for far too many years. Rebuilding since 1957, I always say.
  12. NFL 2017-2018

    As a loyal & foolish Lions fan, I completely understand.
  13. What type of golfer are you?

    I'm the type of golfer that goes out, 3 to 4 times a year, mainly in the Fall, never have broken 100, and occasionally hit a good shot or two. I know I'm terrible for the most part, but I enjoy the game, the peace and quiet in the early morning on the course, very similar to fishing, I just truly enjoy the experience more than trying to be competitive.
