I'm a 5 handicap. I'm going to go to the big box store by my house, hit all the three woods, and buy the one that suits me the best rather than ask you guys which 3 wood a 5 handicap should be playing.

These pro v1's are reasonably priced!

I think I'm going to start playing golf with my wife.

I usually walk 18 in under 2 hours, but I completely understand that most people would rather play at a pace that is comfortable for them. If it is around 4 hours, I think that is quite reasonable.

When I play at the club I never tuck in my sweat stained tee shirt.

While sitting around at the club with some other some other members we couldn't contain our laughter when some jerk came in wearing pressed slacks and polo shirt carrying his polished golf shoes asking where the locker room was.

In the rules forum:
"I was in a match play tournament and had to hit a provisional off the tee. The ball came to rest in the carcass of a dead animal, which was lying on top of a sprinkler head, about a foot away from the cart path, and a line marking Ground Under Repair ran down the middle of the carcass, but I couldn't tell which side of the line my ball was on without moving the carcass..."

Uh, nevermind, after thinking about it, that one will probably be posted eventually... if it hasn't already.

I am so happy to see that you've decided to create yet another thread about :deadhorse:  as I was very sad when the last one that was created about 2 days ago fell off the first page. Bravo to you sir.

:drinks:

Also:

I admit that I'm only helping perpetuate the issue of these deadweight threads by bumping them...but I can't help it because I'm a simple minded creature by nature.

"Hi. This is my first post, but I've been lurking for a while. This is a great sight with a TON of helpful information.  I will try to do my part to keep the forum content fresh. It probably gets old for the veteran members to see the same topics over and over. The search feature has been quite useful, and I've found info on every topic under the sun. I also enjoy all the stories and humorous posts - that Thrillhouse is riot!  (Although, I haven't figured out that Jack Pearsall dude and the third person thing.)
I did my homework, so no need to post asking 'Which driver shaft should I get?' - got some ideas on how to put together my 'low spin bomber', LOL, and I'm going straight to the fitter.  I also learned that there's no point in asking 'Which is the best driver/irons/putter?' - it's all individual, just gotta find what works for me.  And, you won't catch me 'gaming' it - no idiotic jargon, lol.
I also noticed that it's the same rules questions again and again, so I took the time to familiarize myself with the RoG and all the examples and decisions.
Another lesson learned: Stay out of Tour Talk at Ryder Cup time! Yikes! Not for the faint of heart.  And, not much point bringing up TW - you just get over-the-top sentiment pro and con.
Don't lowball on the BST! I'm with ya.
No need to worry about me passing judgement on what somebody wears or plays or if they have a staff bag. I have my opinions, but live and let live. Although iron covers are just wrong - j/k, lol!
Yep, I have learned a lot about golf and golfers in a short amount of time. Yeah, well ..... glad to be on board, and, uh ... this might be my last post, but thanks for everything GolfWRX!"
