  1. Titleist would certainly tell you that you should. I would say that it depends. If you suffer from a slice or hook, its only going to be made worse with a ball like the ProV. More backspin also means potentially more sidespin.
  2. For a long time it was Poulter. He just seems like a jerk and Ive seen some of the spats he's got into with people on Twitter. No class. Now, Id have to say its Phil. Ever since he was whining about paying taxes, I cant stand him.
  3. Nope. If I walk, its in a pocket in the bag and if I ride, its in the cubby on the cart.
  4. Lack of time. If only I didnt have things like bills and responsibilties and could just practice/play golf every day. LOL
  5. I know that Im a worse putter now in my late 30s than I was in my 20s but for me, I think its more a matter of lack of practice. With my work schedule and social life, I simply dont practice like I used to. I used to have one of those little practice putting cups (the ones that shoot the ball back at you) and a house with carpeting that was well beat-down and very similar to a slower putting green and I would practice putting for 20-30 minutes a day.
  6. I would be surprised if there was, especially considering what a mental game golf is. I know that Tiger has spoke in the past about his Buddhist upbringing and what an effect it had on his golf and his life, although he certainly strayed from that path from time to time.
  7. Theres a lot to be said for that. As a devout Buddhist, I can tell you that just taking life as it is can be a real game changer in a person's life.
  8. IMO, people are making a big deal out of nothing. Leave the flag in, take it out; whatever, who cares.
  9. It seems like Ive always done it several times a year. Some new set strikes my fancy and boom, I switch. I wouldnt say there was any logical reason to it. I feel like Im kind of over the itch to try new clubs. Last fall, I bought a set of Pineadow PGXs, which are just super chunky but super forgiving shovels and Ive been very happy with them. I honestly cant see myself switching because they are super easy to hit and give good distance.
  10. More golfers and golf courses per capita than any other state in Minnesota? I find that hard to believe, especially when compared to Florida or Arizona. Anywho, Id say the likely reason is that most people in cold states dont care about golf during the winter. Who wants to hit golf balls when you can do things like snowmobiling, ice fishing, skiing or snowboarding.
  11. With all due respect, if youre, "not the best player", you probably shouldnt be playing blades. The issue is that with blades, you have a sweet spot about the size of a dime and any time you miss the spot, it seriously hurts your distance and accuracy. Look, Im with you, Id love a sexy set of Mizuno blades in my bag but Im not about to fool myself into thinking that I could play my best with them.
  12. I normally play balls that are in the $20-30 range (Callaway Chromesoft or Supersoft/Superhot) and I occasionally will find a ProV1 on the course and play it and I honestly dont notice a whole lot of difference. The ProV1s feel a bit softer and may spin a bit better but not enough to be a gamechanger or be worth the added cost to me. Honestly, I could play the cheapest of balls and still get around the course in pretty much the same strokes that I would with a ProV1. From time to time, I will buy cheapie Wilson balls ("Chaos", I believe they call them) and Nitros and even those are fine, although the Nitros dont feel good off the wedges and putter.
  13. I always use a tee. Why not use a tee when you can and give yourself a perfect lie.
  14. Its a golf course, not a holy shrine. Spit whereever you want. IMO, the grossness of any spitting pales in comparison to the chemicals that most courses use.
  15. Nope. My bag is full of clubs from Tour Edge, Bombtech, Nicklaus, Pinemeadow, Top-Flite and Wilson. I used to be all about the big brands but then I realized that the big brands are made in the same foundries as the no-name brands and that I dont play any better or any worse with either clubs. Some would say that the big brands have better engineering, better quality, are more consistent and blah, blah, blah but for me, its all the same and Im much happier because I dont feel guility about spending thousands of dollars on more clubs that arent going to fix my game any better than my old ones did.
