    Any mac users here playing golf? I have a group here in Fairview, actually they're not that young and not so old either. But they can play. We have a monthly tournament in Cattle Creek in San Jose Del Monte, going towards grotto part. its fun coz there are prizes at stake and you only need 1.2k to join every tournament. We have an upcoming this June at Veterans Golf Club. This is open to all. Just a thought you may wanna join. :D

    If time permits, I'd love to join, will bring some friends doctors. I'm actually from Ateneo Davao, at least one thing in common. Hehe. Hope to see you there. Exciting.

    Hi, just wanna share my golf set specs: Kindly share yours and we'll talk everything about golf.

    Mine are old ones but they still work fine for me.

    Woods: (Driver, 3-wood, 5-wood) A very old steel Spalding
    Irons: (3-SW) Arnold Palmer, blade type, stiff shaft.
    Favorite balls: Pro V1, though I used Pro V1x before but due to lack of practice, I shifted down.
    Putter: Never Compromise, 33'

    My wish list: Taylor Made T5
    Irons: Titleist Z Irons muscle back
    Putter: Either Odyssey or will stick to NC

    This is the only pic I could find of my bag but my setup has changed quite a bit - I'm using a 60 degree Scratch instead of the 60 deg Cleveland, and I usually use a 17 degree Nike 2H now instead of the 3 wood.

    Lastly, I switched from the Cameron Circa 62 to a Red X5 - the Circa is a gorgeous putter but I need the MOI of a mallet, my putting is pretty shaky.

    @vicicasas and @arvin - wow you speak golfish. I cant even recognize what youre referring to.

    just got back from a night of lessons at intramuros. Hey, i think i might have hope. 7-iron hits were mostly 75-90yds and generally straight. Will try again on thur night.
