Played Mayfair on Sunday - fairways were soggy as hell. Whoever told me they had great drainage was full of shit lol

Greens were nice though.

Didn't play well at all. 98 with several fairway 50yd chunks and 4 water balls to boot.

Probably last round of the year, oh well. Orlando in January should be fun

Bought a new driver a few weeks ago, Golftown was blowing out the TM Burner Superfasts' for $148. Bought the 5 wood new the end of the season and loved it. Tried the driver out and decided to give it a shot at the range before they closed, major upgrade from my R5, so much lighter. Just gotta get it and my 5 wood fitted over the winter for next season!

Picked up a Nike VR Tour Driver. Really liking it so far. Sound and feels good. Came with a project x shaft that feels very stable too.

I don't know why more drivers don't have a neutral/open face.

ok, i wore my watch GPS from Garmin twice now, two thumbs up. ok, be aware, you only get front, middle , and back of green distances, which is much less than i'm used to with my Skycaddie.

however, simplifying the information seems to help with making me just playing golf. it detected everything automatically(the course, and then each hole) and is extremely handy being on, your hand!


btw, those shoes in the previous post...no! this is Vancouver man, those shoes are designed for Americans, way down south, on dry, pretty golf courses!

Tested a set of Nike Pro-Combo's with the 8-PW blades. Awesome irons. Not sure, but I'm going to have to test the VR Pro Blades again with them to decide what I'm going to get, definitely narrowed it down to the Nike's though. Time to retire my Wilson Staff FG blades.

Cant wait for the weather to start turning around. Next weekend is supposed to be nice with a high of 11. Maybe I'll only need to club up once lol

Played my first round of the year at Greenacres today. Course was pretty wet, some parts were just one big swamp, but felt great to get out there. My game stinks but looking forward to some lessons soon.

Picked up some new shoes for this year: Puma Cell Fusion 2 Special Editions. Got my money's worth today, that's for sure.

Posting a short rant on the most horrid golf course we played today. Course was Tall Timbers out in Langley. Would NOT recommend anyone to golf at this course.

Words cannot describe the horrid and miserable conditions the course was in..

For example, balls getting plugged in the green, tee boxes with no grass, greens with ditches in the center, beer cans littered in every corner of the course, abandoned golf carts in the woods etc...

^ LOL you thought tall timbers would be good? Everyone knows tall timbers is the shittiest course around, what did you expect for a round of golf for $25?

^ My buddy organized the day and sold us on it being a nice and cheap course... Should have known that nice and cheap doesn't sound right in the same phrase.. Now he's lost all say in choosing courses.

any of you guys use a range finder? if, so what do you guys use (good battery life/features/accuracy, etc) ?

I tried using one on the course for the first time after borrowing it and they actually help lol.. i mean, it's still about executing the shot but having an idea of the distance is pretty good lol.. makes me want to invest in one hehe..


I still suck by the way...

For fast and easy distances, I use the golf apps found in both the BB and Android phones.

BB - BBgolfgps
Android - SkyDroid

Both apps provide with you the same data for distances. Front, middle and the back of the green, also includes water hazard and bunkers..

Never need to doubt your distance and wander aimlessly looking for range markers.. Just trust the distance and swing.
