    Do I bring the clubs?

    I live in the great white north - snow belt in the UP. We have experienced a good deal more snow than in recent years. This past weekend I visited my parents, where my clubs are stored. I debated long and hard whether to bring them with when I went home. Its been warm lately and hadn't snowed -...

    Most challenging hole

    What is the most challenging hole you have ever played? What makes it challenging? What is the most challenging hole you play regularly? The ninth hole at my course is just under 400 yards par 4. The tee is level with the fairway, but a deep valley comprises the first 200 yards or so. You...

    Lost some dough, won some beers

    I had one of the most entertaining rounds of my life on saturday. My buddy and I met in the Great White North to take on the town and play some golf. We went to the worst course in the world, which is one of my favorites. There is no fairway, no rough. Just"first cut" as far as the ball flies...

    My new toy is more fun

    Picked up a new toy last night. Got to the range this morning and put 200 rds through, no problems, not even a case over my head. 2012-05-19_14-14-28_770 by jliimatta1218, on Flickr Gen 4 Glock 19. That's the compact frame 9x19. My aim is a little rusty but I haven't shot handgun in quite a...

    Shaft advice

    I have not followed golf equipment releases for the past three years. I have no idea which new whiz bang new shafts have been released and I dont know if there is something better out there for me. Historically, there have been two shafts that worked best for me. Grafalloy Creation 80, and...

    Dymo STR8 Fit for Trade

    I found that I don't much care for the gray around the back of the head on this club. Just too big at address. It's in great shape and I have the headcover and tool to change the shaft. I want to trade for... something. I want to try a ping driver, always liked the look of those. Or something...

    First 9

    of the season was last night. I've just been so busy, with moving, starting a new job and working so late this week, that I haven't had a chance to play. It wasn't looking good after the first two holes. Hook, hook, fade, fat. No idea where anything was going to go. Stepped up and birdied...

    WTB Assorted Women's Clubs

    I am looking for a few clubs for my girlfriend. All I want is a wedge, a 7 iron, and a 5 wood or hybrid. Ladies or regular flex shaft. She is fairly strong so men's heads would be acceptable also. We don't want to invest too much before really deciding if this game is for her. I don't have a...

    Bridgestone J33R 9.5 For Sale

    Selling it because my golf fund has $0 and I plan to play a ton of golf this year. Been too busy the past two years to play much at all but I'm not working this summer and only taking 14 credits, so lots of golf is on the agenda. As per the title, it's 9.5* with a Graman ul780 stiff. It's...

    A cheesehead once more...

    I haven't been posting, or even playing much golf, in quite a while. I got out maybe a 15 times this summer and that has been about it. Haven't seen a golf club since August. I've been in the greater, whiter north at school, but now I have a real job back in Green Bay. It's too cold and there's...

    Bridgestone J33R driver for trade

    Bridgestone J33R 9.5 with Graman ul780 transition, stiff flex. Standard length (I think) with a midsize multi-compound. It is in beautiful condition. Has OEM headcover in beautiful condition. I hit this thing very solid but not as well as my other J33R. By no means do I want to get rid of it...

    The 3 wood

    I played nine yesterday and posted an excellent score. I shot an even par 36. Only missed one shot - a 3 wood from the fairway, 245 out. Low block slice. That is NOT my miss with any club. But I've hit a lot of those with various 3 woods. I was hitting the driver really well, and sticking...

    Senility

    Since all the old guys are ranting, I will rant about old guys. I work the closing shift at a gas station several nights a week. This evening, an old woman came in with an 8-9 y.o. girl in tow. The woman wanted to pay for her merchandise with a check; I asked her to write out the name of the...

    Golf Outing Games

    Someone planning a company outing has asked me for advice on games/contests to have at the outing. I said longest drive, closest to the pin, and longest putt (the usual ones) but they would like something more unique if possible. Any suggestions would be much appreciated. Thanks, and sorry if...

    Jethro Tull

    Just saw them in Windsor Ontario. Ian Anderson's voice hasn't changed to become horrible such as Pete Townsend for example. He sounds exactly like my vinyls. Played a 20ish minute Thick as a Brick and a goofy new song called Hare in the Winecup about a rabbit that lived in his garden but got...

    J33 15* for trade, need driver head

    I can't hit my J33 15*. Can't do it. Don't know why. I've used the Accuflex Evolution installed in it with success in other 3 woods. But not this one. As much as I want to like it (it matches my drivers!) I just don't. So it must be replaced until I find a club I can hit. I would prefer to...

    A cycle of suckiness

    My tee game has been wild this year. First round of the year, I missed only a few fairways. Second round, it went to shit halfway through and I hooked everything on the back nine. I swapped the driver out for a different one, hooked everything. Swapped again, pounded everything long and...

    Canadians look here please

    I will be in Canada on June 18-20 for a concert. I need to know if I can legally take a pocket knife along; will I be able to get through customs with it? It has a sub-3.5" blade if that makes a difference. The blade can be opened and closed with one hand. Carrying a knife is not necessary but...

    My first round of the season yesterday

    went really well! Played only 15 holes because if I hadn't have left I would have been killed by a tornado or something, apparently. The first nine went well despite the fact that I overshot 7 greens in a row by bouncing once and then off the back. Very solid shots though, just overclubbed a...
