There is definitely such a thing as too many of those damn slick wizards though. For example, I have two, which is two too many. ;)



Nice sig, Tactics. Not a day goes by that doesn't run through my head at least once.

Hwicha told me that they have a saying in Norway that there's no bad weather just bad clothes. I agree. I just a jacket made for mountain climbing that keeps the wind and rain out and evaporates moisture nicely. tested it yesterday in the rain. Waterproof shoes and anti slippage spikes available from orthodontics companies help immensely. Can't recommend those enough because then it's only one's attitude that prevents one from playing :-) Coming from an all year round player. Rain is nothing once you've played in -21C :-)

It's not the rain that bothers me, it's the lightning. Plus a lot of the tee boxes around here are dirt, and drain poorly, which means that when you play them in the rain they get torn up really badly and turn into "ankle-ruiners" for everybody else who plays after you...better to take a day off in my opinion. Many of the parks around here close during storms for this reason, and to prevent unnecessary erosion.

If the lightning stays away today I'll probably head out to one of the courses with concrete tees...with some towels in the bag, obviously :D

You meant orthopaedics right? I don't know that I'd want to wear any shoes designed by an orthodontist.... :wink:

Add ons. Not shoes. At least around here you get both stuff from several shops. Don't know if the stores are separated over there. You do have a larger market so perhaps specialization is possible there.

in the US we have two stores: one sells things that make you fat, the other one sells things made in China

I think he might mean orthodics (sp). Custom insoles and other bits for shoes to make them better for you...

I thought so too, but I was just cracking up about the prospect of shoes or shoe apparatuses made by a doctor specializing in straightening one's teeth.

Yaaargh!!!! Guess which version I was going for :twisted: I thought I wasn't _that_ tired when typing that. On the other hand I still can feel the field practice in my back...

Updated: less molds than ever- the Beasts and Squall got yanked and I'm not really missing them. I'm also throwing my Rocs more than ever and it's been helping my form a ton. I still need to replace that Banshee with a proper overstable driver, methinks...thinking about a pred or firechicken.

That's why you watch the Ryder Cup. Anthony Kim is KILLING Sergio in march play (but will give one back on the 10th probably). America is looking strong.
