I like the Nike Covert alright. If it's good enough for Rory and Tiger (even though he can't hit it in the fairway hardly), it's good enough for me.

i've heard of a high failure rate in their heads.  I know they'd replace them, but it's a pain in the ass.
How do you know he didn't nail Suzy Kolber?  I met Joe Namath.  I would've done him.

Ping G25 or the new G30 woods are fantastic. I hit a TM R1, but would rather have the Ping in my bag.

The golf department at Dicks has seen their profit drop drastically in the last year.  They probably figured the expense was not giving them an adequate return on their investment.

Things have certainly changed.  When I was a PGA pro the discount stores were the devil, and no PGA pro would consider working there.  In fact, early on, a requirement to be a PGA member had to own the pro shop.  Also, in my early days as a golf sales rep, I would not park my van in front of a big Off-Course shop, but parked behind the building so it would not be seen.

I still use my classic Big Bertha Warbird driver (mid 90s vintage) and Ping Anser putter (early 80s), and will till they break.

Yes.  We know that.

I think you missed our points.

I understood his point of "who cares" and even though I was a PGA professional, I don't really disagree with Colboars sentiment.  What exactly was your point?

Oh,  I would imagine that Dicks and Taylormade have had a very close relationship.  Many of the Dick's ads have highlighted Taylor-Made.  That would be my take.

Oh gawd damn. 

U know exactly to what I was referring - TM killed Dicks and every retailer.   Pretty much why most green grass shops don't carry them.   

New clubs every quarter.

And chin and I have had this very conversation already - he likes to be coy.

Really hate them since they bought and then killed Adams - they may still make them but they'll just be relabeled TM aMm.

Unless one of those dicks PGA pros can put a decent shaft and repaint the motherfricker for free, it's probably gonna stay in the backseat with a tennis racket. Always prepared

Yeah I meant to quote GolfingHog about Haney. 

Sorry for offending your woopig sensibilities.  Screen doe, plz.
