My Next 3 Wood: PING G10

It is freezing outside so I thought I would post about golf to warm up a bit. Over the last three or four years, I have replaced every single club in my golf bag. I have thoroughly enjoyed all my clubs (PING G2 irons 2-S, Titleist 975J driver, PING G5 putter), but I have not had much luck with finding a good 3 wood. Last year I bought a 2 iron to try and replace my longer fairway shot needs, but even though I can hit it really well and it had become my favorite club in my bag, I decided I really needed to get a new 3 wood this year. I met Doug at Golf Galaxy over the weekend and hit only one 3 wood before I knew I had chosen wisely: the new PING G10. My first shot – after not even touching a club for over four months – went over 200 yards and I consistently hit it over the next 20 or so shots. All I can say – is look out, my bag is now finally complete. PS – thanks to Jon for the PING hat.

random coolness.

I have a busy few days coming up so I am not sure how much I can post. I decided to post a few random things that I find cool:

  • I have officially gone through all my bookmarks and moved everything to de.licio.us so if you ever want see what I feel is bookmarkable…take a look. This is potentially really cool because you could get a RSS feed of all my bookmarks to see my latest additions or you could get a RSS feed of a specific tag or tags that I use for my bookmarks. Pretty slick. I have also convinced Doug to use this service too so I can easily access all his bookmarks too.
  • We welcomed a new member (nephew) into the family on June 12: Nicholas was born just before 2pm
  • Kittens like Front Row!
  • Ubuntu 6.0.6 is out. I am downloading the PowerPC image as I type…
  • A friend just pointed out to me that you can do crosswords online for free at Chicago Sun Times’s web site. Yes, I am a Sun Times fan not a Chicago Tribune fan. No one understands this 😉
  • I have been using a Safari plugin for the last few weeks and have forgot to mention it: Safari Tidy. This plugin is validates all the pages you browse for (X)HTML compliance. I am always interested to see who cares about web standards.
