Bob Bettinardi at My Local Golf Shop
« on: February 26, 2007, 10:18:19 AM »
I was talking to a Mizuno rep the other day at a local Demo event, and he said that Bettinardi is gonna be at one of my local shops next weekend talking flatties.  I am very excited to meet him, assuming it is true.

Are you in Southeast Michigan?  Is it Carl's in Plymouth?  Miles of Golf?  Carl's in Oakland County?

Sorry, shoul've been more specific.

I just got off the phone w/ the Manager of Carl's Golfland (Plymouth, Michigan), and he said that Bob will indeed be at the store on Saturday, 3/3.  He did not know what time but said to call back Friday and they will know for sure.  I'll post when I find out what time.

Bob is a great guy. VERY personable.

Tell him you are a member of this site. I'm going to be out to see him next week again.

Tony, I was at Carl's last Saturday the 24th.  Did you make it in to see the new gear.  The Titleist rep. had the new CIrca's in his bag.  I got there just as everything was ending.

I like Carl's in Plymouth.  Nice product, clean facility, friendly staff and cute girls at the counter.  What more could you ask for?

Ryan;

I will be at the Novi show coming up, but only if Tablerock is gonna have a booth.  I haven't heard yet.  They had one last year.

I didn't see the new Circas at Carl's because I didn't go.  IMO, Carl's is not a good place for me to spend my money.  They are the only game in town and they know it.  I'll hit balls there and demo stuff from time to time, but order all my equipment from my pro, who needs the business more anyway.

What about you - gonna do the Novi show or Carl's on Sat?  Have you heard if TR is gonna be at the Novi show?

Won't be at Carl's this weekend.  Great opportunity missed.  I will be at the Novi show.  Can't wait to see TR's booth.

So that was fun!  I met Bob Bettinardi at our local shop.  Very nice guy and seemed genuine, I really enjoyed it.  We talked about the new additions to the Mizuno line and I like the new CO6, it is really wide and felt very stable.  I also had never putted with a face-balanced blade like that, I dig it.  Anyway, it was fun, cool guy.

Can't believe I was an hour away and missed this amazing opportunity.  I need to get my priorities in line.

Ye,  you do.

It was a neat experience.  I got to meet Bob, shake his hand, asked him a couple questions.

He's a really cool guy to talk to. Lots of interesting insight.

I'm seeing him again this week in Chicago at Studio B. I'm looking forward to it...
