  2. $1000 golftown gift certificate??

    What would you use it on. If someone (no one would) got me one I think I would have to get all golf gear. Shoes, pants, shirts and stuff like that. If I was starting my set from scratch I would get the callaway x-tour for sure. Sick clubs PS no one got me one, but a guy can dream can't he?
