Cyber shopping

Anyone get any goodies for Black Friday or Cyber Monday?   i saw a Garmin golf GPS watch pretty cheap but didn't buy it.  I found a Cyber Monday deal on a push cart so i got a new one.  After all the discounts were applied, I saved about $70 off the rack price.  So not bad.    Been an expensive few days buying Christmas presents and black friday deals...but that's the only golf related thing i found.

shopping

I almost bought 2 hybrids from Callaway preowned, they had a buy one/get one deal. But to get 2 of the same model I had to go for BB 2019 which I believe was $180 (so...two for $180 not really bad) but in the end I punted because I've never hit that club. That model is available on the Global "You Try" program, so I may do that in the Spring and see if I like it. Michael did buy a driver (because it's never the Indian, always the arrow...) that cost him less than $60 with discounts and his rewards credit.

It's not how...it's how many

Nothing new for Christmas for

Nothing new for Christmas for me this year, as I don't need anything because I got more of everythng than I will ever use now. I did buy my wife some things for our anniversity which is Dec. 7th and her birthday which is a few daya before Christmas, and then some things for Christmas as well. Last I heard, SHE will let me know what I got her when the days arrive. She likes to surprise me with what I buy her when she opens the presents.

Nice Don. 

Nice Don. 
My girlfriend and I usually get each other "events" to do .. so like booking a room somewhere out of town or some Groupon type activity we can go do...because we each buy things we want when we want them.

I think I will have a few things to wrap to Me! under the tree this year...Though I probably won't wrap the Push cart since I expect I will get to use it before Christmas.

gift card

I did buy one thing on Black Friday, our county golf course does a Black Friday deal on gift cards, they give you 20% bonus value. So I bought $300 gift card, will get $360 value. That is basically 2 free rounds (we use the gift card to pay for our rounds).

It's not how...it's how many

Nice.  Why not, if you're

Nice.  Why not, if you're going to pay it anyway.   I do that with my Tax refund sometimes...get 5-10% bonus taking part of the refund as am Amazon gift card..I know I'll spend it so why not get 5% for free.  i think this year it's down to 4% though..not as much of an incentive as 10..

No golfing here this week..rainy and cold..thought about playing yesterday but was a little windy-er than I wanted..made the 50% feel colder..

Did see amazon deal of the day on the Flightscope Mevo launch monitor..$350.

New cell phone for New Years.

I got a new cell phone for myself as a New Years gift. I picked up a Samsung Galaxy S9 online. I got it for $310 which is a LOT less than they sell for at my local T-Moble store, They are selling the same phone for just under $800.00, so I think I got a pretty good deal. It's brand new in the box and is being delivered today when ever the mail gets here. Should be a nice improvement over my old S4 which Iv'e had for a few years or more. We got the wife a S9 + a few months ago and she really loves the new phone. So much more it can do than her old S4, so I'm looking forward to getting my S9 today. Then I had to figure out HOW to transfer my stuff on my current phone over to the new one. Plus I have to get a new Sim card as the new phones take a smaller Sim card than the S4 does.

I like it so far.

I rather like the new Gazaxy S9 so far. It's a LOT faster then my old S4 was, and it can do a lot more things as well. It's about a half inch taller than the S4 was, so that's either a plus or a minus depending on how I look at it. It's a little big display which is nice but it's also a little bigger phone to carry around in my pocket all day. One thing it does have that I think COULD come in really handy is the "SuperSlowMotion" camera feature. That could be really handy to record my swing and play it back in slow motion to really see what I'm doing right or wrong. A high swing speed comes from making a swing with the correct sequence and the right timing, which is kind of hard to see at full speed. So I'm thinking this super slow mo feature of the phones camera might be just what the golfer ordered. Will be worth a range session or tow at least to see. NOw all I need is a mounting bracket to mount the camera to a tripod so I can video my swing without needing someone to hold the camers. I think I hear "E-Bay" calling me.

Thanks for reminding me Scott

Thanks for reminding me Scott. I went to E-Bay yesterday but only looked for something else I needed, forgot all about the camera mount. Now I'm heading back and this time I will see what I can find in the way of a camera mount. Assuming I do NOT forget what I'm looking for when I get there. OLD AGE SUCKS
