I hereby take back blades are just as easy to hit as CBs.  So not true...I was protecting my false belief system to think playing blades 4 to 6 rounds per month was a good idea.

He does not know if the various Speeder EVO versions are better than their originals.
But he is very curious. And there’s the different paint schemes too.
Jack Pearsall has never really enjoyed any Diamana shaft. Not one. Consequencely, There are large swaths of Titleist gear he has not hit.
This is a pity because he’s always liked the general snobbishness the gear exudes.
JP hasn’t played a lot of TM irons in his life, but has felt free and easy to criticize them regardless, like the brand deserved it.
He will continue doing this because he is an American goddamnit.
He has always wanted to criticize Ping for that notch they have on their iron hosels.
He would probably use a moniker for that.
Always hated the V sole. Jack Pearsall does not want his sole bifurcated. Where’s the Q sole? Four TIMES the versatility!!! Hogan are you listening?
He bought his first dozen colored golf balls last week. He choose Callaway because if he was going to be a ponce that’s the brand to dance with.
Cal Bears crushed some pathetic Carolina school. Life is good.

Mine was even worse... when I got into golf I told my dad how it didn’t matter if pros lasered distances because it wasn’t like they were more accurate than to 10 yards.  Still laugh about that one when I laser a target and appreciate that it’s to the tenth of a yard

I had blades for the same reasons.  I thought it was important to feel the difference between good and bad shots.  It occurred to me . . . so I feel the bad shot.  It’s already happened. What can I do about it?

Ive said some stuff about equipment or the swing that didnt make sense to folks like Monte Scheinbaum or some equipment wonk or whatever.  I respect Montes posts because hes experienced in teaching golf, but i dont think I can do any of the things he talks about.  His posts enlighten me, but they dont actually help me.

I dont know, after being corrected (more of a mockery than a correction) I still didnt learn exactly what I needed to based on their assessment of my assessment.

I dont feel my opinions are incorrect on the golf swing.  I may not express what I feel the right way in words, but if I did...it wouldnt translate back to what Im actually doing in my golf swing.  So either I have an incredibly flawed golf swing with no ability express it in words or im actually just right and the other people are wrong.

I dont know

I honestly can’t think of anything stupid I ever said. I know I have, plenty, I just can’t think of any off the top of my head. More than likely it was said in the tech forum. I do know without a doubt my comments of how Elk is a jerk are totally correct.

You lost me at “different paint schemes”. Don’t you know on WRX it’s “colorways”??

There was a thread early this year or late last year about predicting 2018 season. I said Justin Rose would have a down year. He won $10,000,000 last week. So yeah.
