re: Golf Lessons - Tipping - NaturalBeam
You wouldn't be the first and he wouldn't look at you like you're crazy if you slip him an extra $20 - but it in no way is expected or would he think twice about not being tipped. I would estimate much more people do not tip....

[quote]Nope just hate speech. I actually fight for you and their right to free speech. You may want to actually learn what free speech is so you don't continue to make a fool of yourself. Freedom of speech doesn't mean that someone has to give you a platform to speak from. It just means you can't be...

re: IYO, are Callaway drivers worth the extra money? - NaturalBeam
[quote]it's quite a bit longer than anything else out there right now. [/quote]It really isn't - I'm not saying some guys haven't had that experience maybe b/c of their swing types - but objective data shows very little variance. I'm a former college golfer and got no boost in distance compared...

Likely not another top of the line 2017 driver. They're all 20 ...

[quote]it's not going to magically put you in the fairway or give you 20 extra yards[/quote]This. Look at some numbers - it does tie for the longest, but the variances are much smaller than you might think. [link=(https://mygolfspy.com/2017-most-wanted-driver/)]LINK[/link] ...

re: IYO, are Callaway drivers worth the extra money? - NaturalBeam
The Epic, Taylormade, and Titleist top line drivers are all the same price FYI. I've got the M1 - just always preferred TM drivers - I've never felt good standing over a Callaway driver, even back in the Big Bertha days - just personal preference. You could save some money over all of those wit...

re: 320 yard drive, 30' proximity, or...? - NaturalBeam
I'd probably make the 30 footer as often as 3 putting it so that's about even par. With a perfect drive like that, I [i]should[/i] be around even par. I'd probably pick the driving as I'd get bored with 18 30-footers every round....

re: E&O insurance costs - NaturalBeam
Lawyers carry malpractice insurance - for an experienced solo practice, premiums might run 500-1000 for 250k of coverage or so. They gouge you early on - my rates went up every year for the first 5 years, topping out at 3500. After 5 years with no claims, it starts to go back down....

re: **Update** Enlisting if older than 28 - NaturalBeam
You can get plenty of outdoor time as an officer - without all the bitch work. Well, there's always bitch work as a junior officer, but it ain't bitch work like an E4. If influence on the younger soldiers is important to you, that's even more reason to be an officer. You won't be able to shoot ...
