You type “go...” in your browser and instead of your comp going to google it goes to GolfWRX.

You have bought a club then sold it and then you buy it again because maybe the 7 swings you made it with on the range may have not
Been a true test.

When you break 85 with your SGI irons and think it may be time for blades.

LOL, I just type g and GolfWRX pops up.......................

When you have to explain to your friends and family that the shoulders arenít level and the edges of the bumpers are not soft enough when they donít understand why youíre so disappointed in the new Ping Dale Anser.

And afterwards, they still have no idea what youíre talking about.

When you spend an hour at your local golf store telling the sales reps about all the new products coming out.

When you walk into a local golf store and wonder why they still don't have an espresso machine so you can have a coffee while you look around for the fourth time this week.

When you chip on the putting green while there's 3 people putting....and you sink more than they do.

When you take a club from the front of the store and bring it to the back so you can compare the length of the club face with another club.

Note... I have done all of the following:

Bought clubs online while playing.

Had to set up an additional storage area to keep all of the empty boxes for clubs you've bought.

Have your wife accuse you of having an affair because of all the time you spend texting, but you're actually just posting here.

3 sets of irons BEFORE the snow melted. 2 drivers, 2 putters and a hybrid, still a foot of snow. But i did buy a pushcart in line waiting to board a plane. Got a sweet deal, too :to_become_senile: :stop: After reading the above, I feel like I'm in the group therapy sessions for Cuckoo's Nest.

When you look in every single players bag you walk past and still get a buzz when someone has something a bit different. Clubs, shoes, waterproofs, hats....everything catches your eye. A Chiervo jacket, Conte shirt, some obscure Japanese wedge....the search never ends.

When you hit your hacker friend's Dunlop Wal-Mart 7 iron and throw a dart from 172 yards away within 2 ft of the pin. Then tell them the club sucks and it's a shovel. It probably only spun 5000 RPM or less and I get at least 6000 RPM or more from my AP2. How it got that close because it's too easy to hit.

Then you hit your AP2 8 yards short and left with an over draw and tell him how the AP2 trajectory was better though.

Done this.  Hysterical.

When you've played a club for years, sold it, immediately regretted selling it, looked for a replacement for months without success, and ended up hunting down the guy you sold it to so you could buy it back from him for more than what you sold it to him for.
