With Thanksgiving less than 2 weeks away, what are you thankful for this year in regards to golf? Disclaimer: I am at my son’s 90 minute football practice and I have some time to spend in the forum😀 We all are thankful for our family , friends, good health, etc..so let’s mention what keeps us coming back to this game? For me, I really enjoy reading, learning and conversing with a few dozen of the regular Community members in the Callaway forum. There’s a lot of good vibes and laughs in here and it keeps me coming back daily. I think that I have made some big strides in my putting and short game and I’m glad I’ve put the practice time in this year. Watching the videos and listening to the podcasts have helped quite a bit. I’m thankful for having a wife cool enough to let me play, work on my golf room and travel/spend money to have fun: I know a lot of friends who have a spouse that barely lets them out of the house. I’m thankful for having the luckiest year of my life in winning random contests through Callaway and the THP community. I’ve had a lot of great interactions with Pre-Owned, especially with Walt and Seth, and I know that was money well spent. It’s been a lot of fun to meet and play with some of the Callaway crew: Velardo, Ethan, Finley and Seth at The Gauntlet in Austin. I met Amanda and Kevin Kisner at Top Golf. I got a tour of the Callaway trailer at The Colonial. I’ve also had some fun interactions with AJ in the Callaway Facebook live sessions. This group knows how to have a great time and make you feel like you are a part of a collective, inclusive group that cares about what you think and wants to see you improve your game and enjoy the sport. Last but not least, it’s been fantastic to see the new group of PGA/LPGA Superstars go deep and win tournaments. They make every week fun to watch and have given us some great moments to look back on. It’s also satisfying to see the veterans like Phil, Henrik and Kutcher in the fold and mixing it up with the young guns. All in all, a stupendous golf year and we still have a chunk of November and all of December left!! Hope you all have a great Thanksgiving and if you can, get on the course and tee it up with some family members: I know I will!!
I too am thankful for a fun and healthy year. I want to thank Tad at Callaway Pre Owned for working with me on my purchases this year. He gave me a lot of deals and saved me a lot of money !!! I got an Odessey Black 3T putter this year, which I really love ! Apex CF16 irons with graphite shafts, MD3 wedges- fantastic by the way. Broke 70 for the first time ever in my life, 69 ! this past Aug. Had my best ever nine holes -4, 31 at my home course ! I have Thanksgiving week off for vacation, my son is coming home from college. Looking forward to teeing it up with him next week ! Still love and playing Truvis Yellow and Black CS . Also love being in the Community, like @ErikF said. We have a lot of great people in here, it's fun conversing with everyone, whether we agree on everything or not. Have a great Thanksgiving to all. Hit em straight and enjoy your golf.
@RonLf1ac I too want to thank Callaway Preowned and Bryan in particular for all of the help in completing my changeover to all Callaway this year. GBB 3 metal and Heavenwood, Apex 4 Hybrid, Apex 5-P irons, Mack Daddy PM grind 56, 60 & 64 wedges, Odyssey #9 putter. Just got Epic Sub-zero driver in September to complete the changeover. Love them all. Bryan is so easy to work with and has always gone the extra mile for me, both on deals and had to deal with a return as well.
I too and thankful for my family, friends, and golf! I'm thankful that I got to join a golf league this year and get a ton of rounds in so far. I'm relatively new, as I have only been playing seriously for 3 summers now, but to be able to work on my game atleast once a week has made me improve quite a bit. I finished league play with a 14 handicap but all around my game has improved. I mean every aspect too. We are entering the winter season now in Western PA, so I don't know how often I'll be able to get out on the course, but I plan on still getting some work in. I have a 14 ft putting green in my garage and a Callaway driving net to hit into, so hopefully that will keep some of the rust off during these cold months. I've had a pretty great year as I also just got married in Jamaica in October. I too am lucky to have a wife that supports my golf addiction which is very nice! She even buys me a lot of golf stuff. I also thankful to be part of this community, I've had the pleasure to interact with a bunch of great people. It's nice to have a place to go to get answers to questions I may have, or bounce some ideas of people, or just talk about this great game or new products. Callaway customer for life! Happy Thanksgiving to all and I hope nothing but the best for you and your families!
I am thankful for getting back the passion for the game we enjoy so much. I lived in Orlando for 15 years and I played all the time. I got to the point I was burned out on the game and gave it up. I would play on occassion...last year I played a little more regularly and began to get the bug back. This year I got a membership to a local course that allowed me to play alot more golf. I finally broke 80 this year. I got a new putter that has helped my game alot. My short game has improved. I look forward to the future of my game. I am thankful for joining this forum. There are alot of great people on here…it's nice to hear other peoples stories, accomplishments, tips and suggestions. I am thankful that my wife understands my love of the game and allows me to play as much as I have. This is a great game…although frustrating and humbling as it is I still enjoy playing it! Everyone have a Great Holiday Season!!
Congratulations on your retirement. You will soon be amazed on how little time you will have to get anything done. You will need a calendar to know what day it is. Unfortunately your golf improvement will not happen as fast as you would imagine even though now you will have more time to play and practice. Your game will improve and hopefully your health will remain good. You will meet new friends and in time you will look back and wonder how you were able to do anything when you worked.
