  1. What putter is Molinari using? I thought he was a Bettinardi guy
  2. I can’t watch golf (or any sport I guess besides hockey) without my DVR. There are so many commercials almost everything is unwatchable these days.
  3. It’s unbearable, I’ve turned it off.
  4. I purchased my first set of golf clubs early last year. I "upgraded" my putter during a Black Friday sale at my CC as they had Scotty's 25% off so I couldn't resist. I purchased my clubs after taking a lesson and not being very good (I'm still not) and I think they're wonderful. If my game gets considerably better over the next few years I'll consider upgrading and keeping these for myself as I age or as a spare set for friends that want to play but don't play enough for their own. I hope this comes to fruition as it means I've gotten so much better than I am now but I'm not holding my breath..lol
  5. I love their banter. I think this podcast is about best friends hanging out with golf as their favorite thing to do. Actually becoming scratch golfers...I don’t think they see that as attainable since they have jobs and families occupying their time. I enjoy the podcast for what it is and not a literal journey to becoming scratch golfers.
  6. There are lots of serious golf entertainment outlets available online. These guys are genuine friends. I love how they interviewed their wives and weave their personal stories as they go along. If they were +3 players I think the podcast would be terribly boring. I dare say if they actually got good enough to become scratch golfers the content wouldn't be as fun to listen to.
  7. I loved their podcast. I don’t think the listeners nor them thought they could do it but who cares, it was the journey and their love of Carl Weathers that made it so fun. C’mon Rick!
  8. Baby steps, Q Star for now. I've played a few rounds with QST but that was before I started taking lessons.
  9. I just bought some Q-Stars. Haven't played them yet but at my home course you need more spin around the green for better control so I'm starting to up my ball game..lol
  10. This is me too. I have a Garmin Fenix 3HR that shows front/middle/back for holes and am getting my Garmin Approaches S60 today which has more detail. I totally get how @iacasuses his and many of my friends do too in a similar fashion. I’m also just not good enough to merit perfect distances for shots so the general distances with a GPS device is perfect for me.
  11. Srixon fan here. I mainly game their Soft Feel ball
  12. So let’s review my goals... 1) I was fitted for a complete Cleveland set from driver down to putter..check 2) I’ve only had one lesson but am taking more later in October..I guess check..lol 3) I’m joining a private country club so that shows how much I’ve played and enjoyed myself this year. I’ve yet to break 100 but I still enjoy myself every time out there. 4) my boy is 10 and he’s probably been my most frequent playing partner. He’s all in on ice hockey but we still play more than most kids so that makes me happy that he’s building a love for a game that can be played for life. All in all an outstanding 2018!
  13. I voted ehhhh. I have all new Cleveland gear from driver to putter and all in between. I know it’s not a big 4 brand but I know it’s as good as any but also not available at Walmart. Not sure where that brand fits in this discussion quite honestly.
  14. He’s all man when it comes to putting..wow did he finish like a champ!
  15. Good point mentioning your age. I’m 46 (47 later this year). You just have to trust in the fitting process and go with what works best for you in the real world.
