    There only 29 people in Kansas, so you have great market presence! Take it to Twitter. FB is so 5 minutes ago.

    You know nothing. The town I grew up in had 30 residents. Lady up the street had 7 kids with 6 different last names. None of the fathers lived in our town. So, there has to be more than 29 here. If I ever leave the basement and go outside, I know I'll see a few more. Right now, the wife brings me Cheetos and Ginger Ale and I'm happy.

    Dear SS
    Raking bunkers is for posers. I'm thinking that using this new wedge I can kill two birds with one club. What say you?

    If you hadn't noticed, our course is closed today for a tourney. So, stuck at home waiting on the carpet cleaners to arrive. When you are retired and the golf course is closed, you spend time between naps posting on a golf discussion board. Life is good!:D:D

    Dear AZ,

    That is a perfect club! Blast out of a bunker and rake in the same swing. No wasted motion. This club is efficient and will speed play. A most wise choice.

    PnP is a fine brand. It used to be known by it's full name: Pimps N Playaz, but the PC police forced a change. The question is: Which are you?

    Pimps Up, Ho's down,

    One of my favorite jams for the reel to reel. I usually place this before I get to work.

    Dear Sub5onic,

    I'm a plus-cap and only play against pros for Benjamins while my smokin' hot cart babes cut my Cuban cigars (when we're not having orgies). My question is: Could I possibly get any awesomer?

    Regards,
    Sol Adoni

    Dearest Sol,

    It has been a long time my friend. You are truly living the dream.

    The only way it could get better for you is if you incorporated a PnP SW into your bag since you are both a Pimp and a Playa.

    Make sure to wear your jimmy hat!

    Stay thirsty my friend,
    Sub5onic-san

    Golf is weird. I am on my 2nd season with some seriously cheap PING G20 clones here in FL. I paid $40 for the set (used) at a 2nd hand store. I spent more than $40 regripping them. The graphite shafts in them sell for about $7 new, yet I can hit the ball as solid with these as my G30 irons in VA - sometimes better. My putter here is a $25 PING B60 and my driver is a $50 Cobra S3 Max. Eye 2 wedges. Golf is weird.

    I can't remember who it was but a tour pro went over to Europe for a match play event and the airline lost his clubs. He borrowed some clubs and proceeded to kick his opponents ass with them.

    It's always the Indian and never the arrow.

    With that being said, new arrows are a LOT of fun to acquire!

    I think his "horse" was either: a) his heroin that he was shootin' up, or b) his high horse that he couldn't seem to find his way off of, or c) the horse :poop: he continualy shoveled.

    I still remember the article in either Golf Magazine or Golf Digest back in the mid=80's. Four players of varying handicaps and ability went to four different manufacturers' certified fitters or factories. Henry Griffiths, Titleist, Ping, and I believe Callaway. Three of the players were men. One was a lady. Each player went to all four fitters.

    The results were amazing. The same player was fit for different specs at almost all fittings. Some were fit for regular shafts by one fitter and for stiff by another. Lie angles varied by 2 to 3 degrees depending on the fitter.

    There is no... NO rule book or engineering manual that is 100% gospel when it comes to fitting golf clubs. Swings can vary from day to day as you visit various fitters or even return to the original one. Opinions can vary from fitter to fitter as to what they see in your dynamic swing.

    Very few golfers follow the rules to the letter.
