Tried xGolf w/older son. 9 holes, 1.5 hours, chicken tenders, spicy cheese curds. $140. I'm not sure about the value, but it was fun. Jun 12, 2024

      Until today, I had never purchased a sports team jersey with a player's name on the back. I just couldn't resist the "Nacua" Rams jersey.

        Good: Even after my second journey, I was strongly tempted to initiate my third adventure. That entertaining..

        I've never had much interest in clothes and clothes buying, but, on the other hand, have always been a shopoholic. I like just wandering around shops!

        A friend was complaining about how much he's just paid for some stuff, and surprised how little I paid for mine ...

      If you golf, are getting older, and you struggle with your yardage, you owe it to yourself to consider graphite shafts in A-Flex.

        I suck at golf too, and follow John Daly's "grip it and rip it" school of thought. My ball hits the fairway, just not always the hole I'm currently on.

        Golf and I have a weird relationship. Got into it for a summer at the behest of a buddy; lent me a set of old Ping Blades. took about 6 rounds getting used to things. Then shot a 68. Buddy told me to hang up the clubs or be ready be to disappointed for the rest of my life. haven't played since.

      Lofts stronger on new golf clubs, but even accounting for 2-3 yards gained per degree of loft, the clubhead and shaft are getting me gainz!

        That's not too bad. I play with 6 degrees difference between my wedges myself: 48, 54, and 60. For me they give me exactly 15 yard gaps and I can always adjust for in-betweens

        It's not about how far you can hit the club, it is about how consistently you can hit the same distance with the same club every time. If you don't have that part down working on moar distance is probably detracting from your game.

        @Kernel Kurtz Absolutely. I'm working on my consistency after being away for 16 years. After 16 years my clubs did not fit me any more. I needed a change just to get back to where I was.

        @ChaChaRealSmooth @Kernel Kurtz I'll have a set of "players distance" irons and a set that is borderline "game improvement." Tested a set of forged cavity backs and hit them ok, but the ones I end up with will give more distance.

        FWIW, I use a Rapsodo MLM2Pro for a launch monitor. Launch monitors can be ridiculously priced, but the MLM2Pro was “reasonable.”

        I enjoy golfing for the fresh air, nice surroundings, and camaraderie. If you take the game itself too seriously it will have nervosa to rival any in audio.

        @luckybaer my dad took me golfing as a kid and I golfed with him until he was 92. We both always complained about our games but it was never really about that. Sounds like you have the right idea. Cheers!

        The only thing I’ve had issues with on iPad Pro is that *some* charging cables have issues. I’ve settled on these particular cheap ones at Walmart that are built decently and I’ve never had issues with but I have had issues with various name brands. Aside from the odd charging issue every other device I have plugged in has worked. Various DAC dongles, media connections, etc..
