Welcome to the circus Al! Old school rules! There's a few guys here still gaming some older PING irons. :)
Yea, my golf dream is: Plus fours, leather carry bag, lots of wind and driving to a famous links in a convertible 1960-something SL Merc.

I love the i3 blades and frankly can't see a reason to change. The only thing that almost swayed me was hearing Hogans were reborn....and then I saw them and the price tag. Sticking to my i3's.
Yep, if I see clubs I really like (and too pricey), I remind myself that "it's not the arrow, it's the archer".

Welcome! We had a new pro hired last year. He's been a disaster. If you want to apply for a pro job in Kansas, I'll see if I can pay someone to break his knees so there's an opening!!
Ha, yea, where do I upload my CV? Hope he's not on this forum ;)

We have a few gems of 9-hole courses here in SA. Will check it out for sure. Beautiful area as well. Any chance you have Waterblommetjie Bredie for lunch? Also super happy with the burger of course.

sorry, don't do the waterblommetjie bredie....but, I'm sure there will be a place in the platteland that has that on their menue.....

Wellington is another nice little 9 hole course, Darling is starting to get to nice. well kept gem of a 9 hole course, Riviersonderend! was pleasantly surprised with the course and the layout!
