1) Wow, he's kind of a goober.
2) Finally a guy who I'm pretty sure I could take in a streetfight.
3) He's NOT Malaysian? (For some reason I get a lot of hits from Kuala Lumpur).
Independent of how you've now judged me, thanks to everyone who weighed in about what I should purchase with the $100 gift certificate I received for Christmas from Golfsmith. As you can see, I ended up going with a new 56 degree Tour wedge from Ping. Before you ask, no, I'm not really good enough to play a club like this.
My reason for this purchase was because so many of you were passionate that I SHOULDN'T get it, saying that using a club one gets for free is inviting bad karma. Since I've never heard this theory before, and with all due respect to my friends at My Name is Earl, I've decided to put it to the test and say "bring it on." Should I shoot a career round with it in the near future, I'll keep you posted. On the other hand, should the club lead to emotional distress, financial ruin or even my own premature death, I will make sure that I (or my next of kin) admits to being wrong on this one.
