Re: MISC/RANDOM/BS Golf Chatter Thread

I was fit for a driver three years ago, but want to get fitted again. I'm trying to decide if I want to pay $50 which would go towards a new club that I may or may not need or buy, or if I want to spend $125 to get the report. $50 would go towards a club.

I thought the track man I used at the driving range kept track of the spin rate, launch angle and maybe ball speed but when I logged in just now all I can find is The grouping of my shots. There is no data at all. Perhaps I did not sign in when I was using the app before? Basically I think all I want to know is the ball speed / swing speed, launch angle and attack angle. Is that typically available from trackman at the driving range?

Spin rate is paramount, gotta know that. Clubhead speed is irrelevant, ball speed is what matters.

TM numbers are useful but donít try to fit yourself. Good luck!

Thanks. Don't worry, no way I would try to fit myself. Knowing those numbers would be more for my own records and curiosity. I wondered if trackman records that in their Android app.

Re: MISC/RANDOM/BS Golf Chatter Thread

I havent swung a club in over a week but since this is my new favorite forum, and it is a low content thread, I'm going off topic to tell you golf forumites about myself.

Today is day 5 of an 8 day farm gig in the country. There are 5 goats, two of which were born this spring. One stud. The mom, and an older 2 year old. The stud has been stomping his hooves at my approach and he bit my hand once. I'm fine ty. The mom is getting accustomed to the new arrangements nicely and if she is happy then the kids are happy.

Theres a bunch of chickens. They dgaf as long as they get fed.

There's a righteous herb garden that requires minimal work from me.

One cat. He seems happy so far. He stayed out all night last night. All good now.

The challenge has been making friends with this 1.5 year old dog. She doesnt like men. Shes very sweet, but very untrusting, jumpy , skiddish, whatever you want to call it. The first time I met her it was a bark and growl festival. I thought Damn I gotta make friends with this dog or I'm out of a job. Its over an hour from home but I started making monthly trips here in the effort to make friends with the dog to preserve my position. That was the beginning of winter.

It turned out to be worth the effort. We're pretty tight now. I'm petting her as I type. I wasn't able to pet her last Friday. Then day by day she has opened up to me. Considering her adolescent age, I think she has done a lot of growing up just in the past 5 days. She May have had to reinvent her identity. Before she thought she was a kid. With her family gone, she has adapted. This is a proud moment for me. Indeed this has been my toughest case to date.

But yeah no golf till next week wtfff!!!

What is the market like these days for used clubs? If I buy a new driver, I have an option to trade mine in and they said it would be between $120-$160 depending on the condition. I always use the head cover unless I'm on the golf course. I would say it is in fair condition, I suppose but as far as how much they would give me I would assume the worst case. It isn't worth the hassle to try and squeeze an extra $25, but if I could double my money that's a different story. What can I expect to get and how long might it take to sell? Here's the specs.


Driver
RH
Make: Callaway
Model: Epic Flash SubZero
Loft: 9į
Setting: -1/D, weight set to full draw
Shaft: Evenflow Blue 65
Flex: 6.0

WTF was going on here? https://www.golfwrx.com/655869/repor...our-qualifier/

Dailey was then jumped on from behind by Smith, who began throwing punches at the 31-year-old. When Fribbs attempted to intervene, Smith’s father decided he would not and kept him at bay by waving his putter at Fribbs (a detail also confirmed by a PGA section official on-site).
I met Fribbs one time, he seemed like a cool guy. I didn't realize he was still playing.

Re: MISC/RANDOM/BS Golf Chatter Thread

Classic ****. I can't say I have ever been close to that happening other than the guy wanting to rubble when I hit the green on my drive on a blind hole (see other forum for that one, wasn't too long ago).

Only other not even remote one was when I was playing tourney at Mission Hills. Dude hit one in the water on 6 or 7 (the one with the peninsula fairway). It was the water that fronts the green it it was marked yellow. His ball never made it past the line and he thought he was entitled to drop in front of the green. Sorry bud.

Re: MISC/RANDOM/BS Golf Chatter Thread

I've had a few "experiences" on the course......

Was playing a stupid city course in Buffalo (really should just be a park, people walking everywhere). My buddy teed off on 4 and hit a car driving near 4 fairway. Like I said, just a stupid setup. The guy was clearly pissed and floored it so he could loop around and I guess kick our asses. Well we took off back to the car and got there just as the dude arrived to do some whoopin'. He didn't see us and we got away, lol. Green fee was probably like $6 so whatever.

League play (another Buffalo city course, but this one is decent). Our league GM decided to spice things up and added a twist. On every hole that has a green side bunker we were instructed to finish the hole as we normally would and then go drop in the bunker and play the hole out again as some kind of side action. Of course my immediate thought was that this is the dumbest idea ever and the people behind us are gonna be PISSED. Our group did as told on the first hole and then said yeah, no more of that. The people behind our league were furious. Someone shouted something about having a gun in his bag. Nothing serious ended up happening but my god, I can't believe our GM thought that'd go over well.

Re: MISC/RANDOM/BS Golf Chatter Thread

When I was a kid my Dad and I arrived at the (cow pasture-like) muni course in Florida we played, to see several police cars near the clubhouse. We asked the pro what was going on and he said there was a group of younger guys yelling at a group of old guys saying they were playing too slow, and one of the old guys pulled a gun out of his bag and threatened to use it.

On the same course, I was playing with a guy who teed off and hit into the group in front of us. I was like 12 so I can't remember if he did it on purpose for some reason or if he was just an idiot. There was a small water hazard right in front of the tee box. One the guys ahead pulls out an iron and hits the ball back at him and puts it in the water in front of our tee box. It was a pretty impressive shot. The guy who hit into them was pissed and ran out and they got in each others faces and exchanged some words, but didn't actually rumble.

Lol, I probably would have felt like a massive tool following that recommendation, but would have done it anyway, maybe just the first hole, well obviously just the first hole in this instance, lol.

Re: MISC/RANDOM/BS Golf Chatter Thread

Not too long ago I hit into a group on a blind tee shot, and apparently the ball hit their cart. I didn't find out how pissed they were until my partner told me they chewed him out after we putted out, but he was laughing, so I guess he didn't take it too badly. The thing is I felt like the group deserved it (but it was an accident of course) because they were a foursome with what seemed like only one good player who were taking multiple tee shots apiece all day. There was a slow group in front of them, but they effectively never put any pressure or incentive on them to go faster because they rarely caught up with them.

And they were young, and consequently reminded me of a more recent occasion where a young group of players swarmed a practice chipping green I was hitting on before they teed off. They were so oblivious to me and another guy using the green that one of them starting collecting like ten balls of mine around one of the holes because apparently he thought they belonged to him and his buddies, which is funny considering their balls were clearly all over the place rather than next to the hole. My psychological assessment of them was that this was a case of subliminal post-pubescent dick swinging in that me and the other guy both must have seemed passive and inconspicuous and therefore something of a background prop. Perhaps also believing in favorable odds that they might just happen to be superior golfers to match the somewhat affected zeal they had for their impending round of golf. To be fair the guy apologized when he was notified of his mistake by his buddy and realized the absurdity of rounding up all my golf balls, but later when I offered him what I thought was one of their balls they failed to collect by asking "is this your ball?," I seriously think he thought I was being sarcastic by the way he replied, which got to me a little having actually went out of my way to smooth it all over.

Re: MISC/RANDOM/BS Golf Chatter Thread

Was playing last week with a buddy and two randoms. Course was pretty packed on the front but opened up a good bit on the back. We were waiting on the group in front of us from 11-14 while the gap in front of them opened from 1/2 a hole to 2 full holes.

On 15 we were waiting on the tee box for 2-3 minutes. 2 of the group is already within 20 yards of the green, one is off in the woods about 180 out, one is in the fairway 150 out. Guy in the fairway hits his ball, shanks it, goes to his bag to drop another one and I yell out "COME ON MAN". He hurries and hits the second one and gets a move on. As we're walking up 15 and they're walking up 16 one of the randoms we were with starts staring them down. The dude who was in the woods yells "The **** you lookin at"? I ignored it because I'm a 32 year old man who's about to be a father and I don't need to be getting in a brawl on a golf course.
