  1. from the title I thought you ball landed on another tee - the little wooden kind.
  2. I was in "fun" tournament once where we had a fairly hefty calcata (avrg $700 per player), a massive rain storm came in and we had puddles all over the greens, but they would not shut down the tournament. Sure as hell we chipped and flopped form the green to get over the puddles and shook our heads each time
  3. Yes they are all real Foley quotes - the article though is April fools
  4. 3-4 as I like to travel light. If I loose one or two I grab some more at the turn. I never yet lost all my balls but I am sure I could borrow one, or I always find a few while playing even if I loose my own. In a tournament I carry a few more as I can't swap in a different ball.

  6. For me, my "Dream ace" would be from an elevated tee between 150 and 165 yards with an 8 or 7 iron. Nice draw that releases a few feet into the hole. Long so that it feels like long shot, short enough that i can see it. Luckily this is a pretty common par 3 length and I have two that fit this description at my home course.

    I was at a golf tournament a few years back and I can't recall how "the rule" came up, maybe someone hit a duff short of the tees, but someone in our group joked about "the rule" in the presence of two female volunteers. These were younger ladies that worked for me so when they asked what "the rule" was I passed on telling them, as I tend not to make off colour jokes/comments like that to employees. I said something like "you don't want to know" and every one in our group continued to make jokes about "the rule" with out saying what it was. As the day passed every one was drinking and h
  8. Might be your chance to learn to do your own work! With Epoxy, Ferrules, Grips, Grip Tape, solvent, heat gun and a hack saw you can do all the work you need except loft and lie changes. You would save a tonne of money and most of us that do our own basic work find it very rewarding.
  9. Yep cold is just like that.This winter I forgot that, I have been working on some swing changes and for a while I was getting frustrated that I lost distance, holiday in ea warm place last month and I discovered I was club longer then last summer and 2 clubs longer then in the cold.
  10. I would just drop near the tree and then find a tiny sprinkler head in the tree and then walk around for 20 minutes until I find a spot that I would like to drop the ball.
  11. I can't say i find this odd. Lots of golfer would not let a stranger hit their driver. As it was 910 it was likely pretty new, and as you list yourself an 18 capper I am sure you would leave some doubt in the guys mind. To be honest I would never ask a stranger to hit his club, if asked by a stranger it would be 50/50 if I would say yes, depending on lots of factors. As for buddies, I think nothing of it, even if they do suck.
  12. What a 'stupid' I am! I should know better then to jump in to S & T debate. Okay guys here are my responses - have at em!

  13. Eric I think we agree on S & T far more then we disagree. Agree: Good pattern with allot to offer Agree: That the swing is good for golf overall Agree: The name / marketing has caused some problems that may have been avoided with a different approach Disagree: I think the "normal" (what ever that is) swing offers more potential distance, still I agree with you in the real world, for most golfers, they would average as good or better distance with the S & T because of better and more consistent contact. (I actually think we agree here) Anyhow you asked me to explain
  14. On the surface that seems like a pretty smart move, Medicus does a good job of selling . Period. It also makes a tonne of sense to me now as the S & T marketing sure does have the Medicus touch (both bad and good). Thanks, I find this information very helpful.
  15. Not that I know of. As far as I am aware you have nothing to do with AM Golf Associates . S & T is registered to AM Golf Associates, Mike Bennett is the legal principal of the company. On paper it it would appear Bennett has final say on how S & T is marketed. Does he exercise his right? I have no clue. As this is about what 'I think' not about fact, my assumption is that Bennett does have final sign off and as much input as he chooses. The company may be set up in different way then what appears on paper and the may have some agreements I know nothing about.
  16. You got it - it is supposed to be a swing with less chance for error. My $.02 is it does achieve this. As for me being cynical, you got me there, I do think allot of people involved with stack and tilt are doing it for self interest (not that there is anything wrong with that). I give A & P full credit for a great pattern and great marketing, I can't think of any other pattern that has been branded like theirs. BTY I am someone who likes the S & T pattern, I am not committed to everything about it, but I do like it and think it has great merit.
  17. You got give the S & T folks some of the fault here. They have not marketed the swing as a "modern look at Ben Hogan 5 lessons", they have called it a "Revolutionary golf swing", they proudly display the quote "...contradicts almost everything being taught in the game today." S & T's own marketing is based on 'false facts', what they are teaching isn't new and revolutionary, what they are teaching is an older style of swinging that they are presenting in a new way, S & T does contradict almost everything being taught, it has far more in common with good patterns then it does contradict them.
  18. I have trouble carrying a branded bag or wearing a branded hat, if I don't have at least one club from that manufacturer I wouldn't do it. I know it is silly. I use sun mountain bags so I can ho any club.
  19. Works better with a solid rubber ball you can grab at any dollar store. and BTY if you do step #2 twice you have a BOGO
  20. 53 minutes for those TWO holes. Ouch!
  21. Isn't S & T based on what tour pros do? So is it a surprise that you see Tour Pro using the elements? It is like a restaurant putting fishing and chips on the menu because people like them and then say people like fish and chips because it on their menu.
