  1. Definitely 3 Iron. I resolve to someday have confidence in hitting this club.
  2. I'm sure others have also had to go through something similar to this, but I can say it feels great to be able to swing a club again after an injury. Today was the first time I tried swinging a club since Feb. of 2012 and I can't express in words how good it felt to be able to do so again. I somehow pinched a nerve in my upper back, not really sure how, and then aggravated it playing 18 holes about four days later in Feb. of 2012 during an unusually warm weekend in PA. By aggravating I mean I noticed a slight pain in my shoulder while swinging but nothing that I couldn't deal with at the
  3. Agreed, it is all perception but people want to feel like they are saving money, not being charged more for something especially when that something could be spun as a positve as in this case. Its just human nature. The initial price increase may cause some negative complaints, however that will subside pretty quickly as most folks have really short memories these days
  4. I like the idea of #1 although the description makes it seem like a penalty to play from the tips given the provided normal round price. Instread of making the tips a penalty, it may be more easily adopted by people if the shorter tees were an incentive. Therefore #5 would be 50, #1 could be 40, with the others gradually getting closer to the 50 mark. #2 is a bit more difficult because there are many factors that could change the pace of play. The group size, a slow group ahead of you, etc. The time would have to be somewhat liberal in order to compensate for the various scenarios that ca
  5. I think you'll love the Mizuno's, I got a set of MP-58's this year and they are really sweet. I didn't get a chance to hit the 63's but I did try out the 68's and they were very cool also. All of the Mizuno's that I tried have great feel.
  6. The 712 CB & MB both look pretty sweet, but the AP1 & AP2, not so much. The 710s are are nicer looking in the AP1 and AP2.
  7. I'm not brand dependent, but I do have a favorite. I really like the shirts and pants/shorts that Dunning makes. They are really comfortable and also great at wicking away moisture.
  8. I quit cold turkey during Desert Storm and haven't looked back. When you are ready to quit, you will quit, that is how I have always seen it. Those that failed aren't really ready. You have to tell yourself that no one is forcing you to light up and can you let that stupid cigarette win. That is what I used and it worked really well. It's just a case of will and when you look at it from that point, you can beat it. We all play arguably one of the most difficult games in the world. The fortitude required to do well in this sport is the same fortitude it takes to quit smoking. You can do
  9. Agreed, congrats on getting to show #3 Russell! I would be willing to bet that almost everyone in this forum has had a meltdown like Floyd did at some point but we didn't do it on tv. I can't imagine how that must have felt for him.

    Anyone using macports out there? If not I definitely recommend them for folks wanting to dig into the unix side of macs. Many apps are in the ports that wouldn't normally be available to you.
  11. This is raw squid with frozen squid stomach in the middle of it. The middle had the consistency of a snow cone.
  12. Good decision, it probably fell out of someones bag/cart without their knowing and they are trying to figure out where they lost it. What comes around goes around, hopefully someone will be as considerate as you were if you leave a club somewhere on the course.
  13. Congratulations!! It will be easy to know who to cheer for this year.
  14. That's just depressing to me. It reminds me of the 50" of snow that we got last year from two storms all in one week. The drifting lowed the depth in our yard to about 36".
  15. No hybrid here, I have 3W, 5W, 3i. I tried a couple of hybrids and I just don't like them at this point. This is all subject to change in the future however.
  16. I looked at this from a different perspective I guess. I would have to say it will always be the one you just made
  17. Not yet, but its getting close here. I plan on going out tomorrow, but temps expected to be mid 40's with probably light rain. Give it a month, and I think it will be unplayable here until at least late March. I've started searching for that software engineering job in the south, I'm done with this
  18. I concur with this comment. It takes time to adjust to a new set of irons and it just isn't going to happen overnight. It took me a couple of months to adjust to my X-forged from a set of Big Bertha's, but I could never go back now that I have made the transition. On the positive side, you could probably sell them on here in a matter of days based upon the comments in this thread
  19. Today it was approx. 65* when I started playing and I had all of my distance back as I remember it from a month or so ago. What was interesting is that as the day progressed, the temperatures began to drop and I would estimate it in the high 40s or low 50s by the end of the day. I noticed a definite distance loss in the driver by that time. Not so much in the irons, but probably 10% in the driver/woods. These crazy temp swings in the fall certainly add in a new variable to deal with. I noticed someone commenting on using harder than normal balls this time of the year and noting that the
  20. Agreed, the restrictive clothing is also another point. I normally layer in the fall/winter and once I hit three layers, the movement is certainly more restrictive than it would be in a polo.
  21. Searched the forum and found a few posts on this, but nothing that seemed to summarize the topic so I thought I would post this as it is that time of the year again for a lot of us. Yesterday was the first day of the season that I played in sub 50* weather (it was probably 45* and a solid 10MPH wind all day). I noticed a drastic decrease in distance across all of my clubs, but it certainly was more noticeable in the longer clubs. Having played less than a week earlier in low 50* weather I was a bit shocked to see such a drastic change, so I started to research the topic a bit. I found th

  23. This is very cool, good luck! Looking forward to reading your future posts on the whole process.
