whyttearp: Several things that I note.
1. With almost 2000 AS games to your credit you should know that not every player purchases balls.
2. Proof reading and correcting errors such as typos makes posts much easier to read and understand. This is especially true when writing the title to a thread. I thought you might be suggesting special tournaments or challenges for players using the white rock. Obviously that was not your intent, but I don't think white rock players should be banished to Hades as you seem to intimate.
3. If I ever get into an AS game with you I will definitely be switching to the white rock as a way to save credits. This might be something that you should do until you can afford to purchase a better iron set and wedges while getting rid of the starter 3w. Perhaps there is a special place for level 92 Masters who carry two 3 woods but no hybrid or third wedge.
