  1. Past hour
  2. Happy Birthday!! Sorry I'm late to the party!
  3. I looked back at this thread and noticed that the top end of my bag has changed this year. 6 Brands!!! Driver: Callaway Epic Max 4W: Titleist TS2 Hybrids: TaylorMade RBZ Irons: Bridgstone Gap Wedge: Edison SW & LW: Callaway Putter: Ping
  4. Got called to play Wolf today at the other course in town. I have not been hitting the ball well all week, and my right shoulder is still sore, but what the heck!! Stunk up the first hole, but being Player 4, it didn't cost me. I won the 2nd hole with a birdie, so started feeling a little better. My turn to Wolf on #4; lost the hole to a guy that hit his 3rd shot to 3 feet and made birdie. My next turn came on hole #8, a very downhill par 3; hit middle of green, but left the 25 foot uphill R2L birdie putt 2 feet short... push. My next Wolf hole was #12, a dogleg left uphill par 5. I reached the green in 3 shots and was the only one to make a par. On #16 a blind tee shot I split the middle and on the green but missed a downhill birdie putt that should have broke a foot... but didn't! Another push. #17 and #18 are reserved for the two players down the most quarters... I was up 5. I totally screwed up both holes; finishing bogey, double but the other guys saved me. I was happy shooting 40/42 for an 82, but shoulda, woulda, coulda broke 80. Next time.
  5. Today
  6. I went to the range to get some distance work in on the #1. I made the mistake of hitting about 50-60 range shots. then the rain came and no outside putting was done. I have my 8' mat in my living room I am working with. I'll say this putter is impressing me on the indoor work.
  7. I got this back in 1992 during a league event. The pro gave me the ball holder trophy and also sent a note to the local news paper regarding the Ace. The small town paper screwed up the item, however … I should have been miffed that they spelled my name wrong, but that wasn’t the only typo. They also printed the wrong hole number, and instead of the actual par 3, they announced that my Ace came on the 18th hole, which is a par 4. So I’ve got that going for me. A side note … a local golf fanatic has 26 Aces to his name. That’s not what is amazing about him however. The amazing site-to-see is his swing. He actually drags the club away from the ball at address, breaking his wrists backward, as he drags the club a good 3 feet down the line, before moving the club up to the top of his swing. He offered to teach me the swing when I was 20, and I just laughed. That 26th ace came last year when he is in his late 80s. 40+ years later and I’ve only had the one ace. I guess I should have listened.
  8. I put my clubs away for the winter except my putter When anchoring banned was in effect some years ago I spend the winter practicing standard length putter and was somewhat proficient with the standard flat stick past few years but I went back to the broom stick this season for a while to get my confidence back I am convinced that anchoring is the easiest way to putt and the arm lock has me intrigued that its a better anchoring method I converted bellies to arm lock but seem to flat of a lie angle I be spending the winter months lengthening putters and seeing if I can change the lie and loft and trying various combos
  9. That's why Tony wanted me to carry around a flag! First, @tony@CIC is losing his memory when it comes to what I look like to everyone. I think he needs to re-read my very first post. It's ok it sucks to get old. But yes, I am a master of disguise. I even managed to do a dis-appearing act on the plane when that big guy sat on me. ohhhh bad flash back there! Second, Tony's eyes must be going as well. That's why I have to carry around a flag when I'm with him. Third, His hearing must be going as well. I call out and he never hears me. Fourth, I can only hope he isn't playing with a senior flex shaft in his driver! If you know what I mean! I don't need to know the answer. But they make a pill for that. Just trying to be helpful here!
  10. Basic info: Obviously club speed is how fast the head is moving at impact. An ideal ball speed would be 1.5 time times the club head speed. You will see this called smash factor. So for a 113 mph club head speed you would ideally be near 170. Ball speed is impacted by where you hit the ball on the face; misshits result in lower ball speed. Ball speed and things like launch angle and spin influence how far the ball carries. Launch angle and spin can be influenced by your angle of attack into the ball and where on the face you hit the ball.
  11. Landry heard us focusing on Julio and Higgins an decided to show us what's up...
  12. From a real practical side, what would make this bet better or worse?
  13. I actually traded-in my father’s late 1960s Sam Snead Blue Ridge Special 3-5-7-9 irons for my first set, 1978 Titleist Lite 100s … without telling him. I believe it took me 5 years to break the news to him, when he was wanting to get back into golf. But by then, he was looking at a new set anyway. Next set was my first pro line blades, Toney Penna … only available through pro shops. But the first big name tour clubs I bought were 1980 Wilson Staff Tour Blades. I loved those clubs and would love to play them again, provided I still had my 20 yr old swing. Now that I think about, I started my golf career buying a new set each year. No wonder I have boxes of old clubs. It’s an addiction.
  14. Club building achievement, being able to save an oem ferrule (not as easy as you think, especially a collared one). No parts of the ferrule are melted
  15. Ok, i feel dumb at the moment. Remember that Evnroll putter hosel i messed up? Well, its a ER2V so the hosel itself is removable and replaceable lol. So i didn't completely wreck the putter.
  16. Those numbers aren't slow at all, and it looks like you've made a bit of progress on them. I like how your blue and red sticks are in line with your green sticks. When I was doing SuperSpeed with my DIY sticks, I never was able to get the blue and red sticks to consistently stay in line with the green speeds. When I switched to Rypstick I found I was better able to get the mid and heavy weights more in line with the light weight, which translated to better speeds on the course. We're in opposite camps as my goal for this offseason is to increase my weights as much as possible and only maintain the explosive work.
  17. Just know, in this endeavor, you will make mistakes, it happens to everyone.
  18. Yesterday
  19. Question for y’all ... at my club the person who gets a hole in one buys a drink for everyone. I think it’s twisted. Worse than that, I had a 2 for 1 with a stroke and guys tried to pressure me, saying I owed them drinks for the one on my scorecard. I told them since it was a fake hole in one, I would be happy to buy them a fake beer … they did not see the humor.
  20. I’ve had mine since mid-July of last year, no issues.
  21. Congrats testers. I like the CG Tour X and can't wait to see these results. I also like the packaging.
  22. My gamer driver has been a Cobra Fly-z for a couple of years, tried couple others but nothing was as forgiving and easy to hit the fairway with.... Decided to try a Cobra Extreme 9* set at +1. Three rounds with it and never hit as many fairways. Should have named it 'fairway finder'. I play the same course all the time and know my yardages.... probably 10 yards longer than my Fly-z. I have a TENSEI™ AV Blue 55 with SFW regular shaft that more center strikes than any shaft i have played over the years. I also had this shat in my fly-z and was getting the same center strikes in that head. I'm a senior golfer with a 88 - 92 mph ss. I can hit a draw with it but the ball really wants to go straight. If you are looking for a really forgiving driver, give the Extreme a shot, can be had for great prices now. I will be selling a TENSEI™ AV Blue 55 with SFW stiff shaft that I gave a try but the regular suits my SS. Will post next couple of days if anyone is interested.
  23. 9 holes = 2 birdies, 4 pars, & 3-7s only because I had to stop counting for handicap purposes.
  24. Hey, as the title says i'm looking for this seamus golf towel, new or used. If you have other seamus towels, i'll gladly take a look but mainly looking for this and the headcovers if you have them too. Thanks!

  26. The heads do not to be ground. They are fully finished, just need to add a shaft, ferrule and grip of your choice and you are ready to go. The weight of the heads are right at about 300 grams. The lofts and lies have been consistent. Since experimenting with this first set I have now built probably ten sets of these. Some given to friends, some donated for golf tournament prizes and some sold to golfers in our Mens Golf Association. The heads are soft enough to bend easily if you want to change the loft or lie. Some of Corey Paul’s heads have additional hand grind applied to remove material on the leading edge and or provide additional toe and heel relief. There are some with additional face milling to provide additional spin, but I have found that not to be necessary as I’m getting lots of spin with premium urethane golf balls.
  27. Now that the premium balls are offered in yellow I've switched to playing those. I don't mind the lime green offerings either. Orange is classic, I've found that blue is hard to see in the rough, and I can't stand looking at the red ones.
