    Kids Golf

    So I stumbled across this on Youtube... a 6 year-old finished second in the <8 group at the San Diego Junior, apparently. The kid has a lot of game, as you can see, especially considering he'd fit __inside__ his bag. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IllbARLCOFw&NR=1 You're probably...

    Lightning Strike, Historic Clubhouse Burned

    I heard about this a couple weeks ago, but only today got a chance to drive by and see the damage. The clubhouse at Oak Meadows, which was the original home of the Elmhurst Country Club and where Ben Hogan won the 1941 Chicago Open ( nearly a major back then ) was struck by lightning and...

    Who Are You, and What Did You Do with Geoff Ogilvy?

    Has anyone ever played 7 better consecutive rounds for money? Where is this guy during all the stroke play events? If this Geoff Ogilvy showed up to normal events, he'd have 25 wins by now. For the week, he had 2 eagles and 34 birdies in 121 holes. He was about 31 under par ( tough to...

    Fisher!

    Over the TV tower! I feel bad for the guy, but that was one of the funniest shots I've seen on a course golf. Love the creativity from the caddy though, 'Bank it off the tower'. Sounded like a good idea anyway.

    Did Something Change with the Authentication?

    Only one of the two browsers I frequently use can stay logged-in, since sometime earlier this week. Did something change? With the afflicted browser, I can log in successfully, but when I change to another page, my authentication is lost. This effectively renders the board read-only. I...

    Difference between Two Clubs?

    I have two Wishon 5 woods now, and I played the new one for the first time this past weekend. I don't understand why it feels so different from the other one, though. One is a 17.5* 915cfe with a 73g Penley Graphite Light X, and the other is a 18* 949mc with a 70g Grafalloy Prolite...

    The Most Interesting Article...

    on golf that I've read in a while. 10 Rules For Being a Great Driver - Nick Price Selected quotes... "If you're a beginner or are starting a kid in golf, make it a key to hit the driver as far as possible. Swing it longer and more free-wheeling than the irons. You can address control...

    Winter Officially Over!

    Played 18 today, exactly 11 weeks after the last round of 2008. On my way home from work Friday, I found out that my sister-in-law, new niece ( about 6 weeks old ) and brother-in-law were in town for a surprise visit. That brother-in-law is an even bigger golf nut than my father-in-law...

    Am I being Unreasonable?

    There's a driving range (TopGolfUSA) right by my office, and I've been going over there on lunch frequently since I started with this company. It was nice, albiet pricy, during the winter because the bays are well-heated. Despite that, it was normally nearly empty and enjoyable. Now the...

    Why doesn't search work?

    Why doesn't the search function really work? For example, search on "horsepower golf". Nine threads will be in your result set ( maybe ten, if it picks this one up ). Among the threads NOT in that result is this one, which contains that phrase at least twice...

    DIY Shaft Extractor Finished

    After shopping for an extractor for a while, and finding the prices mostly outrageous, I decided to build my own. I saw this thread and started to build one. I bought the vise, and cut the aluminum sections... but then I looked hard at the design, and changed my mind. In particular, I didn't...

    Over-hosel putter shaft?

    Working a new project... I realized recently that with the sentimental value of my 3rd-generation-in-the-family 50-odd-year-old putter, there's no way I would ever trust it to an airline baggage handler. Everything else in my bag is replacable, but not the putter. So I needed a traveling...

    That Has Never Happened Before...

    I hit the range by my office over lunch, and a woman asked to take some pictures of me while swinging! Okay, she was apparently putting together something for their website, but it was still enough to make me nervous ;) I did not shank any until she went away, thankfully.

    Best Component Hybrids?

    Okay I searched, and surprisingly came up with nothing... Who makes the best hybrid heads? Based on my very limited experience ( I don't play one, although I did just pick up a KZG from a ST'er ) I'd have to say Sonartec... but they're TU now. The KZG is cool, but it's a monster... I...

    WTB: Yes Nicky and hybrids

    WTB: As a belated Christmas present, I want to get my brother-in-law a Yes Nicky putter. If anyone out there happens to have one for sale, let me know. Also, my father loved the irons I built for him for Christmas, and has hinted that he would like some hybrids, too. I would love to...

    WTB: Wormburner H/C

    Come on, someone must make one! I've looked everywhere I can think of, but can't find a wormburner headcover. Every other animal under the sun can be found as a headcover, but apparently, not a worm. Is it too much to ask for a fuzzy worm... with some flames? If it turns out no one...
