    Last 2 rounds I shot 89 and 87, that's very good by my standard... Have a T-time tomorrow at Wyncote in PA... If U are close to it, then U should play it, highly recommended. Mongrel and your buddy should try there, not too far from Pilgrim Oaks and I take Wyncote over Pilgrim Oaks anytime

    I've put a Taylormade SLDR TP 460 10.5 in the bag. It's set to about 9.5 degrees with the weight a little toward the draw side. It's the white colored one. I have to say this is one of the best looking drivers at address. The head has a great shape to it. I can really work the ball with this club. Sunday I face an uphill dogleg right and hit a perfect fade up the hill.

    Unfortunately, since I only play about twice a month my short game has gone to hell. I can't seem to putt or make anything. I actually chili dipped a chip shot and that's something I haven't done in quite a while. I feel lucky if I make a 6 footer.

    As for my drives, though, I'm hitting them long as ever. This club does make a difference for a high spin player.

    For reserves, I've got a Ping i25 driver with a PWR 70 Stiff Flex, 9.5 and it's a bomber. Doesn't look quite as good at setup as the White SLDR Driver. I've also got a Titleist 913 D2 with Aldila RIP Phenom....definitely wins in the feel department and when hit flush is the longest of the three.

    There's a new member in our club. A young guy (early 40's at most) who bags a SLDR driver. One of the silver heads. He put an X flex Fuji shaft in it cut down to 44" and he chokes down another two inches. He has a short backswing well short of parallel and a full follow=through. Big guy built like an NFL linebacker. Trajectory is so high that it took me two rounds to be able to follow it. Tour distance maybe 20-30 yards past mediocre PGA guys.

    Hello!
    I totally forgot about this place.
    Got my game under control this past winter. Down to an 8 index. We drove back to Long Island mid May and I froze my ass off in the 50-60 deg weather for a month. Now that it's finally back to the 80's, my game is again under control.
    Still playing the G15 driver with a little lead tape on the back, makes it a bit more forgiving.
    I had a Titleist fitting in florida in April. After an hour of changing shafts, my 910d2 was going really good. Then tried the 917d2 head. Same numbers. So then i asked the fitter, could i compare the G15? Same numbers!! So i guess I saved $550.
    Having trouble lately with my Scotty, so i'm back to the Odyssey. Face balanced is better than toe balance, for me.
    Can't wait to get back down south!

    I've quit golf to watch the greatness that is our President.  Liberals are taking it in the ass, as they deserve for their stupidity.  Right wing wackos are taking it in the ass.  Kim Jong Il is taking it in the ass.  The "Media" is taking it in the ass. And some of us are making real money again.

    Life is good.  First snow coming soon.  Hope everyone from the old days is still above ground.

    God Bless President Trump.

    This disturbs me.

    After not hearing from my friend for so long,

    the first thing I have to say to him is,

    FUCK YOU, LORENZO.

    Even joking, trolling praise for such a cretin would, if hell were real, condemn your soul for eternity.

    For many male liberals, taking it in the ass is frequently a highlight of life. Right wing zealots, not so many. The Media is good and truly fucked. The Climate is changing. So nothing we can do about it except move the fuck upland away from the water, stupid dipshits, turn up the AC or turn up the heat. Kim Jong XXX is all theatre.

    First, let me just say God Bless President Trump.  

    We've learned many times the key to advancement on every front, social, economic, health, etc. is economic growth.  Obama strangled us.  Now we're making big money again.  To act noble but then cut against economic growth isn't just ignorant and detached from reality, it harms the very people such individuals pretend to want to help.

    Nice to hear from you guys, hope you're all well.  Even you Nifty.  Despite the damage your kind has done and tries to do, the bastardization of education, etc., I wish you the best.  

    My door is open for any who'd like to meet up and ski.  Convince me you're not filthy or dangerous and you might even have a place to stay.  Fall here is lovely.  Come on out Nifty, there's nothing you can say to me that can offend.  I like you....you know that, right?
