    Are you a brand snob?

    I guess I'm a closet snob. I have a mixed bag of high-end brands, but have replaced the OEM driver and FW head covers with generic head covers. I prefer zipped covers over the sock-style ones. The irons wear neoprene covers as well since they're forged, and I want to minimize dings.

    GAME GOLF vs. USGA Handicaps

    Interesting that your HI's are so close, and mine are considerably different. I wonder how typical this is.

    Watch or range finder?

    I'll just add that a rangefinder can also tell you if the group ahead of you is out of range.

    GAME GOLF vs. USGA Handicaps

    With 20+ rounds recorded on Game Golf, I'm seeing a ~3 stoke discrepancy between my GG and USGA indexes. I would expect the USGA one to be lower since I apply ESC when posting, but that's not the case. I've emailed GG asking if/how ESC is applied, but no response. My only other theory is that GG counts 2 9-hole scores as 2 rounds, whereas USGA combines them into 1 18-hole round, which may skew the stats. Puzzling.

    New (to TST) guy in NM

    Hello all- Been playing off and on for ~30 years, but my handicap has never been below 25. I'm getting smarter with practice and it seems to be working; I'd usually shoot in the 90's on a good day, and now I seem to be shooting in the 90's on a bad day. Onward! My most memorable golf moment to date was a hole-in-one on League night. I'd signed up for "insurance", and no one had claimed it for several years, so I came out ahead even after paying the bar bill that night.

    Your First Set of Clubs

    Palm Springs Desert Classics, and matching steel "woods", plus a Slotline Bullseye putter. The irons were sold to a coworker who used them till they started coming apart.
