Hey I'm real excited to pick up some of those.. I love Comets.. Got two new ones last week.. Based on your championing of the Comet and you hanging out here you're my favourite pro..

That being said.. There's a thread going "Would you pay $100 to play with a pro?". Anyhow that got me to wondering how would a pro feel about playing your practice round with a fan for money? Wondering too about auctioning off the chance to play with a pro and do it as a 50/50 fundraiser, half to a charity, half to help pay the Pro some touring costs. Has that been done before?

How about this?

Pro-am day before event. $50 entry fee per am Each card is Pro + 4 ams, so $200 per card.

$75 to pro as appearance fee
$50 to pro purse
$25 to players pack
$25 to local club less lunch, expenses, etc.
$25 to pro-am purse

Or break it out however you want. of course you would be limited to events with a large amount of Pro entries. Give the Top 20 ranked first dibs at a spot.

Would something like this entice you to attend an event you otherwise would not?

I can't believe I never tried to throw a Comet before. I'm finally able to sit down and update you all on how I did with the ESP Comet and the very aged Elite X Comet. They both do pretty much whatever I want them to but it will let you know if your form is off.

The bad news for me is my form is so terrible this season I can't seem to throw anything that far and I'm experiencing a high amount of nose up with my putters mids and drivers. I have tried changing my grip but judging from the video on my phone I know my reachback is not straight back so perhaps my grip is not the issue who knows.

Anyways I am super happy with my Comet, it is flying farther then most of my drivers, very odd but it is what it is I guess.

Love the CBD sponsorship MJ.

I've started using it some to help with an achy knee and back that seemed to develop recently.

What sort of stuff do you use? Currently I use a 10mg Roller that helps take the edge off of my achy runner's knee.
