ok, famous golf stories.

Lee Trevino once said, "if there's lightning out on the golf course, pull out a one iron and hold it up in the air, because even God can't hit a one iron"

just finished installing my "invention", the Club Caddy. was pretty easy being the CNC programmer/operator that i am...cough. anyways, works great. made out out 3/4" nylon, and screwed into place on top of my bag. bought 14 tubes from Canadian Tire for a buck each and that's it. 14 bucks for materials.




here's a mock up i made first,out of mdf,bottom view.

does anyone work @ a golf store here? If so, quick question:

Will the 2008 (or even the 2007) prices on clubs/drivers go down in price eventually considering our dollar is above Par.

I'm debating whether or not to buy online from the states or buy locally (Currently it's still much cheaper to buy online from the states than to buy online off a canadian website). I'm looking to upgrade to a sumo2 driver or TM 460 driver this winter.

talked to a riverside golf guy, supposily manufacturers will slowly adjust the prices, but for any recent changes, the only thing he has heard of is CALLAWAY lowering their prices 15-20% very very soon (in 10 days) .

i didn't think it had anything to do with the manufacturers. for example, the manager at the magazine store i go to says he charges more for magazines(as opposed to the US price) is because he paid more for the magazine(because of the lower value of the Canuck buck),ergo he charges more. i called bullshit and said to him that was the way it was,not the way it is now.i think the wholesalers and retailers here in Canada think people here are too stupid to figure out that they are pulling one over on the consumers.

i think the states has always had the best golf deals regardless of exchange rate, but with the new rate now its even better.
i've always bought my stuff online then have it sent to point roberts to pick it up.

i dont think i've ever bought clubs from a canadian retail store in years. even when i used to work at a golf store years years ago, it was still a better deal to buy it online sometimes.

just dont claim it on your way back =)

nice man, i've never been very open to yardage gps. i prefer the point n shoot bushnell, but for the most part its mostly pacing and using scorecard/yardage books. i find non electronic to be the best, sometimes i get too reliant on that and get caught up in blaming machines =P

but looks nice though should be a boat load of fun, i started tweeking my bag for next year, new wedges, driver and probably new shafts for my irons.

anyone interested in some vokey oil can wedges?? pm me, also got some woods n stuff to sell.

i looked at lasers but when you're on another fairway or for whatever reason can't see the hole, i went with the GPS.

stupid? lol. dude, it's a cool toy. it's not going to help my swing but it will help a lot with proper club selection,it'll give me the distance to all the bunkers,hazards. and it'll show me where the green is when you can't see it.more importantly,i'd rather know where the green starts and ends,yardage wise,than to know where the actual pin is. all i have to do is glance down at my golf cart.





and check it out for yourself,especially the Intelligreen feature: (move your cursor to represent your ball location)

club selection and navigating your way around bunkers and hazards are part of the challenge of the game. did you use a 9-iron from 140 yards out and hit a bunker? oh well... remember that for next time.

you know the best 'toy' for measuring club selection? a bucket of balls at the range!

easier said. i've played over 22 different courses this year,each for the first time. i can't even remember what i had for lunch yesterday.

and speaking of the range, the manager at my driving range just gave me permission to come in before it opens and walk off yardages with my GPS so i can measure accurately all my irons because the targets there are so far apart you don't actually know what you're hitting,distance wise. so if you see a guy with a can of orange spray paint making dots out there,go for it.

+1

gps/lazers, waste of time. Your killing 1/2 the game by using this. 1/2 the challenge is to estimate the right distance. If you remove this factor, your losing a good majority of the fun of the game, i consider it just cheating, doesnt' take a genious to wave around a GPS machine, but it does take skill to judge distances and choose the proper club.

If your not looking for a challenge, and just focusing on your "consistency and accuracy" then that's fine, but if you want to absorb the whole game, the other half comes with "judging distances and proper club selection"
