In Topic: Just back to play golf after 2 years--setting a new bag

05 November 2008 - 01:20 PM

Jim, You know what? I felt like I hit balls and played better than before (except putting and short game). I felt more relaxed and also I didn't have a lot of expectation for myself. Even with putting, although I didn't do that well, I think I did okay. And I would blame it on the fast green. (It was faster than the courses that I used to play in Virginia and South Carolina.) Maybe, less expectation = better result. :)

In Topic: Headcovers on your forged irons? Yes or No

03 November 2008 - 09:33 AM

I've played Ping irons since when I started playing golf. I shamefully admitted that, back then, I used iron covers. Ping irons and covers? I know, I know. But, back then, when I was a newby, I wanted to protect my investment. After a while, I figured out PIng irons would always look the same no matter what and no covers ever since. I remember that a friend of mine once used a set of gorgeous Hogan Apex Plus. He bought it brand new. After he played for a short week, the heads were banged up that made them look like a year old. He couldn't stand and got rid of it. He then bought another set of the Apex Plus and used covers. So, I guess it depends on two things: - Do you change your clubs often? If so, iron covers may be a good idea to keep the resale value. - Can you stand it? Like my friend, he says he doesn't care how the faces and soles would look like, but he cares how the back of the heads looks like. If you're like him, use covers.

In Topic: Taylor Made Counterfeit Equipment

When I was looking for a hybrid on eBay, I ran across this listing. Even though I've been away from golf for a couple of years, I can still tell they are obviously fakes. http://cgi.ebay.com/... ... 286.c0.m14

The bag is now complete. TaylorMade R580XD 9.5* M.A.S.-2 65 R-Flex $40 TaylorMade r5 Dual Fairway #3 M.A.S.-2 R-Flex $34 TaylorMade Rescue Burner T3 RE-AX R-Flex $62 Ping i3+ Blade 3-PW C-Lite R-Flex $246 Ping W-Tour 54*, 58* AWT S-Flex $80 Ping Karsten Anser $58 Total = $520 I went out to play for the first time last Friday. I didn't have the 3 wood (had it regripped) and the rescue (didn't have it then). Shot 44 for 9 holes with 22 putts. (Two pars, two doubles and the rest are bogeys.) Not bad, eh? Okay, I played 11 holes with one par-5 hole that I scored +5--didn't hit the fairway, second shot hit a tree and bounced into the woods, chipped it out, put it back into the fairway, hit into the bunker and then made 3 putts. But this one I'll try to forget. :)

Add to that: You can have up to $2500 rebate per eBay account. But be sure to do that session-per-session. (Meaning: Don't do more than one eBay transaction per "one click" from Live.com.) I would have saved more if I got 30% instead of 20% for the driver and the putter.
