  1. When I was young, I walked because I was cheap. Now that I'm old, I ride because I'm lazy. When sharing a cart, I like to walk to the green, or when looking for a ball that missed the fairway, or to my ball when the cart is at my partner's ball.
  2. I been using the same Martini tee for about 3 years. Doesn't go into hard ground very well, just bends, so I have a wood backup. The Zero Friction tees are good, so good in fact, they seem to fall out of my pocket and are lost every time I try to use one.
  3. As someone who grew up on dirt bikes, and MX racing, I would love to ride that thing. Where do I put the ice chest?
  4. I like the ball, and think that it's a good match for it's intended audience. Will a ProV1 guy like it? Probably not.
  5. That's so cool! Makes me proud to be part of this forum...along with all you other guys too, who didn't win nothin'.
  6. Late to the party, but, my son has suffered from ADHD most of his life. He has difficulties with focus and concentration. Weed does help him focus in many areas, including sports. I'm sure there is a trade-off affecting things like motor skills and endurance, but I've seen him exhibit clarity in critical thinking when taken in moderation. In my mind, that's a mental PED. Instead of one step behind, he can be one step ahead. Personally, I don't partake in alcohol/drugs while golfing, it ruins my game.
  7. When I first clicked on this, I thought it was going to be about baby cows.
  8. I saw that, and because of the price, went with the Flat Cat Tak for $25 instead. Working great for me. My left or right misses were within an inch instead of a foot all day.
  9. Most of my golf is played under the take-off path of Van Nuys airport, at one time the 4th busiest airport in the country. The airport is several miles away. I don't mind the single engine prop planes, but the corporate jets seem to come out of nowhere, engines roaring. I've learned to step away and let the noise pass.

    Pace Problem

    Last Monday I experienced a very slow front 9, taking at least 2 1/2 hours. 3 riders and 1 walking, and we, a twosome, waited at every shot, except the tee, where they all teed off before we could get close enough to ask to play through. The walker wasn't very good, often hitting his drive 100-150 yards. They all played from the blues, and the walker would tee off last. The riders would take off, often leaving the walker behind to fend for himself. Finally, after a couple of holes, one of the carts would hang back, help look for a ball, etc. When they reached the green, the walker would often park his clubs on the wrong side, and after holing out, would retrieve his clubs and have to walk back across the green to get to the next tee. Did I mention the walker also moved in slow motion? Conserving energy, maybe? At the 10th, a par 5, while we're waiting to take our approach shots to the green, the walker holes out, shake hands, and heads back to the clubhouse. After that, we never came close to catching them again. Finished in 4 hours total.
  11. More than 0, less than 1. Yesterday, however, I lost 2. both on the same hole. From the tee. "Anybody see where that went?"
  12. I don't think it's that embarrassing taking a crap, especially if no one saw, BUT ANNOUNCING IT ON THE INTERNET IS. No, just drop your drawers, pinch a loaf.
  13. I've only heard this once. I was standing 10 yards in front of my partner, to the side, and he drills a 3W, and this thing just sizzles past me. I said "Wow, did you hear that!" He said, "Hear what?" Now, if I could only figure out why my TM R540 driver sparks sometimes when I tee off.
