You play spiders or not? Don't think so. Best part when fighting male spider against another male spider. The one who lost runs away. Then we take a female one and hold it down gently by pressing her body, not allowing it to run away. The male will approach the female and after having XXX with her, he is brave enough to fight again. Unless you provide the losing male this privilege, he will run away from the other male who defeated him. BUt after his XXX he is brave enough for a return match though. I wonder why??? Any body understand what I was talkingabout? Only those who played with spider will know and I really wonder how many of you guys out there have this chance.?


d, are u telling duval to go for "special" everytime he kenna saddam hard hard.....

so that he is brave enough to come back for more..... bounce

ROFL ROFL ROFL Yeah man. If it works on the spiders, it should work on him so that he dares to come back and challenged you again.

most will do better with a chipper than a 58 or 60 wedge.

1. the chipper will be in use in many situations, much more that the 1 or 2 flop shots per game u need to hit over an obstacle.

2. Its like a putting stoke, which u already have plenty of practice, and during the game already executed many times. How many practice shot in total have u had with the flop shot.

3. odds of sinking that 10-15 foot chip from the fringe is way higher than that 10-15m flop shot.

4. have a 60 wedge will give ppl ideas of trying a more difficult full shot at 60-70m to get the ball to stick or even backspin, instead of a simple pitch with the 52 wedge.

5. u will simple embarrass yourself or even take out someone with that line drive across the green instead of putting pressure on ur flightmate with a chip to within 3 foot or even holing it.

6. when the 60 is not working we get ideas that if Phil is using the 64, maybe we should too...

7. when we cant find that cheap X-forged 64 wedge from PW, we splurge on a Vokey...

Now I understand what is " Return of the hero after the XXX". No wonder every time I stared at the lower back of the nice caddy walking in front of me toward the next tee box and as she is laying my putt for me .. I tend to tee off and putt better ... But if I do not focus in doing this I will screw up heeee ( or shit, my wife just walk passed .. I guess she did not see what I was typing ) lol!

Chippers is a not a putter as per Appendix II design of clubs " A putter is a club with a loft not exceeding ten degrees ... " however the grip must be circular in cross-section as mention by a pro here.

I do not find any dis approval of chipper in the rule as long as it design is conform to the design of club on adjustability, length, alignment, shaft, grip, club head & face.

My personal opinion : It does not matter whether we like to use chipper or normal wedges .. as long as we can chip it close to the pin or holed it ... we can use a mop if the rule allowed.

Once again ,,, Nobody is going to ask " What club you use ?" but rather " What is your score today " Very Happy Very Happy

Bro, I think I like you because you think exactly like me. I think we could click. Hope to be able to play with you one day but not too soon as I am under treatment for my Tennis and Golfer's elbow at the moment. Suffering both on my left hand and Golfer's elbow on my right ..sigh..... Even after about 10 sessions of accupunture, I am only feeling slightly better as in can cope with daily activities with lesser discomfort. But recovery wise, far from it. I guess it takes time even though it had been already 3 months with only 2 games played. Am resisting temptation to go and play with elbow brace but so far able to control my urge. Well, story of my life here Slicer. Good golfing ahead for you though. Cheers.

Wow, I am sorry to hear about your injures Titu. I would strongly suggest no golfing until you are fully recovered. Do not take any risk at all.

Actually, I just pulled my back muscles because of playing too much .. didn't give enough time for my old body to rest Neutral As for my personal story. I have allot of sense of humor and sincere with what I say but am a out spoken person that may offended someone that I am unaware of ..

I hope I am able to play a round or 2 with all you guys in Singapore someday and also like to invite your guys to come to play in Surabaya ( You all can Saddam me in Surabaya ) ... Just let me know when and I will make all the arrangement over here ..

My aunt will be coming from the USA in 2 mths and I topang her to buy. Any of the bros want, can PM me. I think one or 2 more shld not be a problem.

Why not consider the Cleveland Niblick 37* then ?
You can use it for full shots too as well as a chipper due to the grooves.

I'm using a Niblick 49* as my AW

I have considered the Niblick but the issue is that the lie of the niblick is not as upright at the odyssey. The odyssey with its 70* lie allows it to be used more like a putter with a putting stroke. perfect for those greater than 30 foot putts too.
