A little jet-lagged still. Popped by the store while on the way to do some grocery shopping.

Ping Fans, G15 readily available.





Adams Speedline 9132 Drivers:



For the ladies, a Callaway boston bag in the form of the hand bag:



Shoes:



Ogio Diva. Wife loved the bag. Had to buy it:





Ladies Golf clothing heaven.



Chopsticks anyone?



FYI, Hot Stix Golf is just across the fairway from where I am. Will take some time to check them out.

More pics to come as we get settled in.

I know how it feels. When I was in the US, that's what all my friends, relatives, colleagues, friends of friends etc did. It was so frequent that the UPS guy knew me by name! Smile

There will be more to come. Currently, the missus and I are sick due to a lack of sleep during the flight and also trying to combat jet-lag.

PGA National is a golfer's heaven. Will post some pics to show you guys soon.

it's an alignment aid used to line you up on the range so if your shots go wayward you'll at least know it isn't because you aligned yourself wrongly. and also can be used to whack friends in the rear. Very Happy

It was a tool invented many centuries ago to aid man in the art of eating. It is still predominantly used within asian socities. (Sorry, couldnt resist it.)

I think what Sunny was asking for is basically 2 long pieces, preferably cylindrical shape, made of plastic like material to be used as a training aid to help in alignment of body at address towards the ball, target practice etc etc... My coach has also found it useful in whacking me with it. At least it is better than him using golf clubs... White Flag

There are slightly more and better stores in Southern California when I was based there last year. However, the golf courses seem to be more around here. It also helps that most of the top players in the world reside here including TW and EE.

My wife carries very few clubs...2 woods, 2 hybrids, 5 irons and 1 putter. I think the bag can take that. She likes the handle on top of the clubs compartment which also look very 'bling bling'.

Still sick. Maybe I will visit Golfsmith later on today. I know their prices are slighly higher but their selection is also equally vast.

Can help me to get the chopstick ?....hehe

Btw, how much did you pay for the Divas ? very nice color, did not see that color in Singapore. I'm also looking to buy Ogio stand bag, still couldn't find a suitable one yet...

Went back to Edwin Watts today to get my wife fitted for her set of ladies X22 irons. At least you can order them 1/2" shorter than std ladies and 2* flat at no extra surcharge.

Found some interesting stuff while I waited:

Ping Karsten 50th Anniversary Putters. I only dig the grips.


Rife IMO Trainer putter. Looks more like a meat tenderizer.




JT, the A7 is so-so in feel only. You will find better irons elsewhere.


Went down to Golfsmith today. Was a letdown though although the store was much bigger than EW.

Saw the new i15 driver on display:


Overall, I must say that Florida has a lot less choices in terms of golf equipment compared to California but it should suffice me nicely.
