    It's not the club, it's the clubber.

    I am free because I know that I alone am morally responsible for everything I do. I am free, no matter what rules surround me. If I find them tolerable, I tolerate them; if I find them too obnoxious, I break them. I am free because I know that I alone am morally responsible for everything I do.

    I always like to say that "If I were a better golfer, I'd buy better clubs." Which is the same as saying that I don't practice enough.


    Great equipment can make learning easier and more fun. Crap equipment can make practice painful and disheartening.

    Remember that even crap equipment in the hands of an expert can still yield phenomenal results.

    I am a perfect example of that statement.

    I am not a scratch golfer nor am I a competition level marksman, but I think I would be much worse if I didn't have good equipment to work with.

    Plus it just makes me feel good.

    Well honed skill will overcome many deficiencies with lesser equipment, but well honed skill with quality equipment will reach the stars.

    In the pursuit of skill, why not remove the variable of equipment by buying quality to begin with? Then you can only blame yourself.

    Depends on whether or not you have a conceal carry permit for it.

    I've had people tell me that there ought to be a law against the way I swing a golf club.
