  4. As most of you know, my ability to effectively hit a golf ball has gone downhill for quite some time. I've been posting a lot in the "What, How Did You Practice Today?" thread and honestly, haven't played much lately. It's time to throw some accountability into the mix, that why I'm starting this thread. Recently, I purchased the "No Turn Cast" from Monte Scheinblum and am working on developing a functional swing. I'm not saying this is the be all, end all as I'm looking to start lessons in a couple of months. Right now, my swing is a complete mess with results like this: Untitled - Sequence 01 10.mp4 That kind of result just takes some of the fun of of the game. I've got a lot to work on. Bad weight shift, steep shaft, alignment, hands coming off the grip, and a misinterpretation of lag are just a few things that need to be addressed. I plan on charting my progress here, starting with my first round in a month this coming weekend. I hope to chart practice sessions, post videos, and talk about my rounds here.

  5. - 39/37 = 76 (+4) - 4/15 FIR - 11/18 GIR (2 birdies) - 32 Putts (15 2-putts, 2 1-putts, 1 chip-in par save) Practice starting to pay off as my ball striking is getting more consistent every round. Struggled on the opening few holes (including doubling the par 5 third) because my lower back wouldn't loosen up, but once I got walking a bit things went better. Still losing a handful of balls to the right with the driver when I revert back to ripping my shoulders open, but hit a bunch of really good ones today, too. Left a couple of putts right on the edge, and for the third time in the past couple weeks I chunked my pitch on No. 10 after a beautiful drive. The hole is in my head now!!! All around really fun round, though, and great to keep seeing progress.

  6. Well look what arrived today ... (Ok maybe I added the question mark) Well then what awaits in the mystery box, the possibilities are endless. Ok it's a medium sized box so not endless but stick with me here. First we have..... Nice start thought about buying one of these. And next .... Oooo ahhh the platinum MSG putt out trainer. My putting practice just went to a whole new level of fancy. I mean the metal frame and rubber is really nice and let's just say heavy. Everything is looking good Thanks so much MSG this was a great prize. I would also like to thank my team, Jordan, Louis, Robert, John (yes first name basis when they win you something like this).

  7. 7.28.2021 Had a great day on the Thousand Islands Golf Club Lake Course and didn't realize just how well I was playing. The SwingU app I have used since 2014 dutifully recorded a 47 on the front 9 and then a 42 on the back 9 for a total 18 hole score of 89. The reality hit me like a hammer when I realized I broke through the 90 level for the first time ever! Totally awed and still hearing my son Patrick's words (as he was driving us back to the clubhouse just over a mile from the Lake Course 18th green, "did you score each hole as you always do?" to help me wrap my mind around it. And the answer was of course "yes" as the creature of habit I am. One birdie and one par, the rest single and double bogies. Awesome day, awesome weather, awesome spending it with my son, and awesome surprise after touching the 'close and save' feature on the app... I think I will keep playing golf lol

  8. I got out for a scramble yesterday. Had a great time and knew going in, my group couldn't really contend. It was myself and a few buddies, who are 28 - 36 handicaps. It was still difficult for my competitive nature to be pushed back down. As you might imagine, 98% of the shots used were my own ball, but had a really good time. Was able to give a few tips here and there (when asked only) and saw some improvement from the guys I was playing with. Drove the ball the best I have all year. And many times, I had to hit a good drive or we wouldn't be in play so still was a little pressure on my ball. Unfortunately, most other aspects of my game were just mediocre. Did not really put any approaches closer than 12 feet all day. Most were 25 - 40 feet so we didn't make that many birdies. Finished at -7 par 63. Only two par 5's so definitely could have had a few more, but it was for a great cause and nice to be off work for a half day with some good buddies.

  9. Played one of my favorite courses this morning, lots of water and forced carry over wet areas. Love it! Driver (TSi2) was on board and so were the irons, even hybrid was going where I aimed it. We picked this course because greens were aerated a couple weeks ago so they were pure. Shot +3 (39) with 1 Birdie. I found a couple Srixon “Soft Feel” balls in my bag and they were playing surprisingly well Doctor appointment tomorrow

  10. Another Sunday on Cart electrical work. I received and installed the new switch - and now have power to the lights. But figured since I was going to be tearing up the dash why not go one step further and upgrade the headlights to LEDs. The current ones were so discolored you could hardly see anything at night. The LEDs are a huge upgrade from the old ones. Here's a before and after. Note tail/brake lights yet to be done. Before After

  11. ... Time to repeat a story I have told before. I believe it was Bob Murphy (but could have been another Old-timer). Said he was really struggling with his swing so he took a week off and didn't touch his clubs until the Thursday of the next Tournament. He won that week. He decided to repeat the no practice before a tournament and won again two weeks in a row. He decided he would never practice again, just show up for practice rounds and play golf. ... The very next week and 10 over the cutline on Friday he said he had no idea how to even start his backswing. Everything felt off. On his way home Friday night he said he realized "the golf swing isn't something you own, you just borrow it for short periods of time". If a Pro at the top of his game can win 2 weeks in a row and have no idea how to even start his swing the next week, I think we can give our selves a break and enjoy the good days but accept the struggle on our bad days.

  13. I played 9 at Soldier Hollow in Midway, Utah the other day. First hole, stroked a drive over a fairway bunker, 54* to about 3 feet... rolled in the putt for the first bird in a long time. Second hole, approach was long, missed a 4' par putt... bogey. Third hole (par 5), lost 2 drives, hit a nice 6i to about 80 yards, lost two balls from there for a 10. I stuck an 8i from 177 to 4' for my second birdie on 5. Hole 8 was the worst. I hit a drive 310 perfectly down the middle, 139 into the green. Airmailed my approach and settled for a bogey. Two more lost drives on 9 (both decent shots, but one was right and one went through the fairway). That round pretty much sums up my golf game these days. I need to work on distances. I thought I had them dialed, but then sometimes I just hammer it even when I'm trying to swing easy. I almost always hit long, so maybe I need to club down. It sure was pretty out there though!

  14. I'm about 2 1/2 hours away from you. If you ever want to head up and spend a day working on your game let me know. I'm here for you. I have access to a private course. Range, short game practice areas, and of course the golf course itself. Not to mention all the crap I have at home and the simulator. We can put an 8 hour day in with breaks and lunch and get you off to a good start on your journey.

  15. So after just making this drive 10 days ago, the wife and I are back on 1-80 for 15 hours heading back to Erie, PA. Her step-brother has been battling cancer for a year and he’s lost the battle…in hospice care now and hours/days left. Racing back to hopefully say goodbye before we can’t.

  16. Played in a charity scramble yesterday, the first of three scrambles in 10 days. I played pretty well, but on an unfamiliar course with lots of wind, lost quite a few balls with club choices that I'd probably not choose in a normal round. We didn't come anywhere close to the top of the leaderboard, but had a bunch of fun and hit some really great shots, including a drive that ended up somewhere near 300 yards dead center fairway and drove a green over water on a short par 4. Got out for nine this morning, shooting a 42 with a triple and double. Still working on some new swing thoughts/feels, it's getting better but still hurting myself off the tee too much. But I'm hitting some very good shots, just need to string together a round without blow up holes.

  19. So, here’s what’s been going on… I took a lesson two days after the post above this, then found out my instructor passed away suddenly two nights later. That was the straw that broke the camel’s back. He was more than a teacher to me, he’d become a friend. After our final lesson we sat in a cart and talked about life for almost an hour. Then in mere hours, he was gone. I’m fortunate to live in a beautiful community with 4 excellent golf courses, but after all I’d told you about the state of my game, and then his passing, I needed to put the clubs away for a while. I finally got back out last Saturday. Shot 38 on the front, followed by 49 on the back. Played again Tuesday, 41 on the front(with a quad!!!) and again crashed on the back with a 51. That tells me to things. I still have “game” somewhere inside me, but I’m either unable to stay focused or strong enough physically to finish a round in the heat wave we’ve been going through down here. Neither is good, and yet to be honest, I find myself not caring enough right now either way. Ive always competed hard in sports. Played baseball through college, and hoops in high school. I took up golf very late, but loved the competition of playing in leagues and local events. For some reason that fire just isn’t there right now, and I feel like I’m going through the motions out there. Those of you who work, and really look forward to your weekly game probably can’t relate to what I’m talking about, but I’m wondering if any of you retired guys who play 3 or mor times a week have ever experienced the same feeling?

  21. This is my first round after having my best round even. Today’s round was classified as “Regression to the Mean”. Played a quick 9 this morning. Meh. Only one 3 putt though. The rest were 2 putts. No 1 putts but lots of really short second puts so I’d call that a win. I had my best drive of the day on my last hole. That shot that keeps you coming back.

  22. I got out for the 9 hole league last evening and had 12 putts....which means i was missing greens! The good part was I got up & down 5 times the bad part was i was generally a bit long with the irons. I did a range session over the weekend to get better iron contact which actually worked but I didn't adjust to the change in carry i was getting. Especially on a few 49* shots with my stock 100 yard swing that went 110 instead! Finally adjusted on the last hole (I am a slow learner) and birdied it to halve the match so it was a good ending.

  23. Really encouraging range session today. Again I brought my fitted irons to the range so I could make sure that any swing tweaks I made with the Cobra irons could carry over to the Mizunos. I struck the Cobra MIM Tour irons great today. Found the sweet spot more often than not and got a much more repeatable ball flight than previous range sessions. To be honest, I was very close to emailing the mods and asking to identify someone else who I could send the equipment to and take my spot in the challenge; I was that discouraged by the ill-fitting irons. Thankfully, I have been able to incorporate a few new swing thoughts to get the iron strike to a serviceable standard. The timing isn't perfect with the AMT shafts and they never will be, but it is to the point where I can give feedback on the iron heads throughout the review. The MIM Tour heads feel great on well struck shots. As good as a forged Mizuno? Well, not to me - but they feel really really good. Even though they are a slightly bigger head than my JPX 919 Tours, they provide admirable feedback and I know exactly where I've struck every shot without even looking for the mark on the face. The Radspeed 7 Wood is a high flying bomber. My god. I need to get this on a launch monitor to see what my launch numbers are because it appears to be launching very high and peaking higher than I am used to seeing. Also interested to see how it plays out on a course under windy conditions. I am able to control trajectory with my 818 H2 hybrid and I am not quite sure I can do that with the 7 Wood. The Radspeed 3 Wood is pretty fantastic on well struck shots, however I am visually noticing quite a low launch and a good amount of distance loss on shots struck low on the face. My G410LST seems to protect me more on these types of shots, but like I said with the 7 wood, I will need more course and launch monitor data to confirm what I am seeing at the range. The Radspeed Driver is a bit hit or miss for me right now. When struck well, it is as long as anything. It appears to launch a little lower and spin a little less than my G410 LST. What is causing some angst is strikes high on the face. At the range, when hit high on the face, the ball loses a ton of spin - much more than what I visually see with my G410LST on similar strikes. I also feel like I am seeing much more right to left movement on toe strikes (over gearing) with the Radspeed. Because of this, I found myself really trying to hit a fade as my stock shot with the Radspeed in order to make sure I keep the spin up and minimize the right to left miss (hook). The King Utility 4 iron - This club excites me. The ball shoots off the face. I have both this and the 7 wood playing at 21* and I feel like I might be hitting the 4 iron further (both in carry and in total due to a stronger flight. Will definitely need to get this on a launch monitor to determine carry distance and then potentially raise the loft back up to get a better gapping between the 7 wood and the 5 iron. Still waiting on the wedges to come in. It's ironic that I have not received them yet given that these were the clubs I was most looking forward to trying! All in all a good range session. Hoping that the rest of the crew and I get our missing equipment soon so we can begin the on-course challenges!

  24. I was debating wether to post this or not, but golf is golf and I guess we all go through tough times. I played the absolute worst I have ever played in my life yesterday. I stopped counting and debated on throwing my clubs in the water that my ball liked so much. I was extremely frustrated and just couldnt get out of my funk. What a horrible day, lessons learned though and I will keep at it and keep trying to get better.

  25. A friend and I are taking advantage of a "stay and play" deal offered by a country club in Canton (Glenmoor, for the locals) - 2 rounds of golf and a night of lodging on site for $215. The course is a Nicklaus design. Today was round 1. I started birdie, par, par, and piped the drive on 4. The swing felt relaxed and effortless. Then the wheels feel off for a while - bogey, double, double. Ended up with a 42 on the front. The back was going pretty well until 16. Easy enough hole on paper, but I flared my second into a pond. Drop and hit my wedge long into a bunker behind the green. It plugged below the back lip - no choice but to go almost sideways to get a club on the ball. Slope of the green took it into the rough in front of the green, almost back into the pond. Chip and 2-putt for an eight. Finished with a 46 on the back for an 88. Overall I was very pleased with my play, thinking about what could have been.... The course itself is gorgeous. A very nice layout with pretty generous fairways. I'm in terrible cell coverage so I'll post a couple pics after tomorrow's round.

  26. ok, I am back from my trip and got to play 3 times so far this week. I am also using the Edel E.A.S. putter I was custom fit into 3 weeks ago, and I have completed my fitting review and will get it posted this weekend. Hint ( its awesome) So Im playing well, and shooting low. and putting pretty darn good. Had 4 birdies on Monday, that round was sick. Today was kinda ho hum compared to Monday, but still a decent game. Its just nice to get back to it.

  28. Good dew sweeper round. 6:45 tee time for 9 holes was done before 8:30. -40 (+5) 1 Double, 3 bogeys and 5 pars. -5/7 fairways 1/9 greens (the approach struggle continues) 4 up and downs! (with an average putt of 5') and 13 putts including 5 1 putts! and no 3 putts! (The O-works knows its on the testing hot seat) Struggled off the tee, only 2 good drives. Again approach shots were just not good, was short and catching them fat. Chipping was fantastic and put a lot close and the putts were just falling for me with really good lag putting again. I had my chances for bird and just didn't happen but kept the damage to the minimum. Here is one, focusing on setup, and I have choked down on the putter about an inch (thanks @B.Boston) which is helping me keep the toe down. This was a 39' first putt and had a 3' easy tap in.

  32. Tuesday net skin game at Plantation Palms…shot a 46/48:94 witH three penalties today. I lost a ball (OB) on holes 6, 7 & 8. Then took a penalty on hole 14. Prob my worst round at my new club. That said, I had 11/14 FIR, 5/18 GIR and 35 Putts. I was experimenting by pulling my 3W from the bag, changing my 6W back to a 5W and adding my 7W. The few times I needed the 3W, I used my 19* Hybrid. This leaves me with Driver(180-210) 3 Hybrid(175-190) 5W (165-175) & 7W (155-165). This will be my bag going forward at the new course.

  33. Talk about an up and down round first hole of my golf league I end up in the bunker and couldn't get out to save my life ended up taking a triple bogey on the first hole. The next hole par 3 had a chance for birdie ended up with a par it. Literally three holes cost me a bunch of strokes and ended up with a 43 which I thought put me out of the money. On a good note I holed out a flop shot for a bird which allowed me to win a skin in my golf league so greens fees are paid for next week at least! The game is rounding out nicely and hopefully it will continue when I play in the league championships... MDGolfHacker

  34. Had to go to the range today just for some peace of mind. It’s so ridiculously hot, though. My swing didn’t feel right at all. Frustrating. My shirt and shorts were completely soaked-through when I finished, I was dripping sweat, and I went through 5 gloves. Sooooo humid, and this was at almost 7pm.

  35. ... Well I said I would have no problem with days of rain because we haven't had any in Phoenix for over 6 months and I got my wish. Rained the last 3 days and I wanted to complain on day 3 but I really couldn't even though it did cause flooding in many areas. But the good news was I got to play this afternoon and at 87* ... I got to walk!!! With temps in the 105-118* and 18-38* of humidity it was impossible to walk unless I wanted heat stroke. Feels so good to be tired after the round.

  36. Member product testing is a big part of the MGS Forum and our community takes this responsibility very seriously. The OEMs have been incredibly generous with us through the years and it’s important that we continue to merit their trust. When they commit to sending our members new gear, they have obvious goals: they’re looking to create some buzz by proving the worth of their product. For starters, it's useful to read examples of great work already completed by members like YOU. While we never promise an OEM positive reviews (we want honest reviews), we must be able to promise the OEMs that they will get a review. It’s a huge black eye to our whole forum when someone receives a new driver or a set of wedges and then we never hear from him again. It’s why you don’t hear us talking about review opportunities as “contests” or reviewers as “winners.” While we understand that it’s a thrill to get brand new free gear, it’s also a real responsibility to get the review done in a thorough, informative, and timely manner. For that reason, it’s the moderators’ highest priority to choose testers who’ve proven that they’re invested in our forum community. So how do you get our attention? Set up a profile picture. It’s a small thing, but it’s really one of the basic ways we separate between those who are part of our community and those who are (often) just here to get free stuff. Start posting. Of our thousands of members, there are many who have only posted in review opportunity threads. If that’s your entire posting history, you won’t get chosen. Prove your review chops. There are plenty of opportunities to post unofficial reviews. Start by posting a WIYB. Get some good pictures of your clubs, bag, balls, and accessories. Explain why you use the club setup that you do. Post content that our community finds valuable. The reaction system (likes, etc.) is fun but it also has a serious purpose: racking up likes is a solid indication that your posts are a positive contribution to our discussions.

  37. Well as Mark mentioned we got out for out morning round this AM. I have really nothing to complain about this round. Pretty solid round for me, and I’m very happy with the Epic Max LS off the tee. Average 257 off the tee (more on that in a moment) and after missing 3 of the first 4 fairways I hit the last 3 with some really good drives. 5 GIR is another solid number for me. I have one three putt (on the same hole as last time too) which was frustrating, but the greens were much faster today, and I left myself in a really bad spot with a downhill bending putt that just kept running past the hole. I almost made the comeback putt but missed for the tap in 3 putt. I only had two real errors, on the last two holes. My second after a great drive on the par 5 was fat and didn’t advance the ball well. I dropped a second ball down and had the right club, ended up on the green and made “birdie” with that ball and bogey with mine (that damn 3-putt!). Then my tee shot on the par 3 9th was terribly fat and toey. Ball went into a creek so I re-teed and hit a great shot to about 8 feet and made the one-putt bogey. Another bad swing or two but really I felt pretty good today. Now, the Epic Max LS and Motore X combo performed really good today. Missed my first 3 fairways with it, but hit the last 3 and was never really in a terrible spot. One I had to hit a punch under some branches. But the highlight was in the consistency: With the exception of the 7th, every drive was 260+ This is exactly what I saw in my fitting, and should highlight the forgiveness in that head. On top of that, the 7th hole is a uphill par 4, and the course was still wet. I went back in history and my longest on that hole was only 263. So the Max LS performed awesome. The strokes gained figure at the top of this post really highlighted it for me. It’s the first time all year that my driving has been positive strokes gained against a scratch golfer (hey we all have goals right!?). That honestly surprised me, but I’m stoked to see that having an impact right away.

  38. Arccos says smart distance with my current driver is 254. And for comparison here is this hole with my previous clubs a month and a half ago, when I got par on the hole for the first time in my life en route to a career-best 80. I’ve always been a firm believer that distance isn’t everything, but damn if it doesn’t make the game so much easier when your approach shot is two clubs down. For another example, on the 9th hole today I skyed my 3w off the tee and was left with 190 to the center of the green. With my old irons I would have gone with my 5i and swung out of my shoes in hopes that the ball somehow rolled up onto the green. Instead today I was able to hit a basic 6i without over swinging, hit the green, and 2-putt for par. I really hope some of the other contestants have a similar experience, otherwise I’m gonna run away with this thing!

  39. I played bogey golf tonight, but didn't really hit the ball that bad. I had a really bad break on one shot that led to a double and I got caught by gusty wind a couple times. The guy I was playing had an insane night. We are theoretically the same handicap, but I was lobbying for an investigation into how he is now a 6 before we started. Everybody got a chuckle out of it, then he shot 35 for a net 29, so I got completely waxed. The Epic Speed seems very legit in terms of forgiveness - I hit three tee shot way too high on the face and they still ended up in the 250-260 range, one of them dead into the gusty winds we had.

  40. Golfing weekend, 3 and a half days worth with the 2nd Annual Brian Jacobs Golf Veterans Classsic. Planned for staying on his property, due to heavy soaking rains the campsite for our "village" was moved to Mill Creek GC in Henrietta, NY where we played on Saturday and where Brian Jacobs, PGA is based for instruction. The campsite is a disused short course parking lot and tee box. So cool to actually stay on the golf course we played one of the 3 days of golf. The green to the left of the white canopy is the steeply dropping 10th, par 3 that has a view of the camp. Brian Jacobs' tee shot from the 10th tee box over the fescue dropping to the green with the camp on the right side of the photo in front of the treeline. A good and challenging course, the game was Team best ball scramble starting on nearest tee and moving back a tee for each birdie, staying with the previous tee level for par, and moving forward a tee for bogie. Had a visit to Club Champion in Victor, NY for a fitting experience and here I proved my preference for mallet putter with single stripe across the clubhead. All venues where donated generously at no cost to the Veterans. Sunday golf was at Churchville GC muni course in Churchville, NY for variety that gave different challenges than Mill Creek GC and Monday was at Caledonia Golf Club in Caledonia, NY. If Brian Jacobs Golf sounds familiar, he is part of Golf Academy on NBC Sports. Next round is tomorrow at 1000 Islands GC on Wellsley Island in the St Lawrence Seaway with a front row view of Canada the next island over...

  42. My muni is not quite that bad, but it's getting there. Lots of grass mounds and undulations in the fairway; high spots are brown, dead grass and dirt. Some teeing grounds are that way too... #10: This past month with temps right near 100º every day and that week of 109-118º was brutal. We have a great course superintendent... Carl (no, not Spackler! ). Carl Thompson has been honored as the Runner Up recipient of the 2019 Healthy Land Stewardship Award. The Healthy Land Stewardship Award recognizes effective strategies for efficient use of pesticides and nutrients as well as pollution prevention. He also earned national environmental leadership recognition as he was awarded the 2018 National Resources Conservation Award presented by the Golf Course Superintendents Association of America (GCSAA) and Golf Digest. If we can get temps down to the low 90's, the irrigation should bring the grass back. The bad news is 107-109º coming up this weekend.

  43. Lousy. Shot an 88 because it was the Bataan Death March. I had 2 4somes and 1 3some in front of me playing a skins game between themselves and just couldn't get any rhythm at all. Wait 5-10 minutes on the tee because they'd wait for the green to clear when they're 300+ out on a par 5 and 225-250 on a par 4. How about we hit an iron to lay up instead of a fairway because the result will be the same...you won't make the green and you'll be hitting it again anyway. 5 hours and 20 minutes of agro.

  44. Week 25: 3M Open Another week is over and our standings at the top and bottom have tightened up making for a exciting finish over the next couple weeks. Congrats to Cam Champ as he got his 3rd PGA tour win of his career and seemingly finally broke though this year. I'll admit I did not watch a minute of it and can't weigh in on how the event really went. Congrats also to @Golfermarcus for being the highest scoring team this week. His team managed a big 220.3 points in a week for a weaker field. His team was 1 of 3 team crack 200 this week and this kinda showed with our league median being at 114.38 which as we now know is a below average. Our 10-0 teams have certainly made things interesting as we will see in a second, however here they are a well done this week! @blackngold_blood is now comfortable with a 10 game lead with 2 weeks to play. Then things get really interesting. Luck hit me pretty hard and I have fallen back and join several stellar teams in a short range making the battle in the last 2 weeks extremely exciting! **Fantrax has updated and it was showing slightly different standings a hour ago and not sure which are correct** The great battle for bonus points has certainly warmed up and will be fun to see how it plays out. 20 wins are up for grabs so lots of movement possible and 2 very different events that will have solid fields as well! With all that said it isn't just the top that has tightening up, our cut line battle also has 15 teams within 10 games... Spots 31-45 are all within 10 games and will be really fun to watch. Now we come to the last 3 days before the trade deadline and your teams will be somewhat locked minus waiver moves. Trades are seemingly harder to come by now and teams are more content with their rosters. That is now a wrap for this week. Thanks all for following along and contributing to this fantastic league as we wind down. No matchups this week so take the time to see if you like your roster and we will see what happens at the trade deadline! Cheers

  47. Today was weird in that I haven’t play my own ball for 18 holes in forever. I play a nine hole league where I play my own ball but my 18 hole round are funny money games with ridiculous rules. Last weekend we took on a Korn Ferry Tour player where he played the tips and we a scramble from the forward tees. He still beat us. It was so much fun to watch though - Today we have 6 guys so it was a no brainer - 3 against 3 low ball on the hole. I shot 40 - 37my partners both shot 80 and we shot 70 as a team.

  48. Unexpected 98 today. 46/52. Working on my swing so had zero expectations of breaking 100 today. Driver was a mess although no shanks today. Lost 5 balls from driver alone. Short game and putting saved me. Bye bye SIK. Two three putts and two one putts with the TA. Irons got better once I adjusted my grip as I was leaving the face open.

  49. ... It really is one of the big fallacies concerning equipment. Told this before but when I was on staff with a Top 3 OEM my irons came in with my 8 iron 2 degrees strong and my 7 iron 1 degree weak. 1* difference between the two irons and probably would not have known if my playing partner wasn't a Mgr at Golfsmith, so he checked the loft and lies for me. That is when I decided to buy my own LL machine. It would have been pretty bad for a Staff member with a PGA Bag having trouble with gaps and thinking it was the irons, not faulty lofts then not really recommending them to students. I have never and I mean never had a set of irons come in on spec and that includes Mizuno, Titleist, Taylor Made, Cobra and Bridgestone. Mizuno had me go through a fitting with their top Midwest Rep to do a review for WRX and their website and the irons arrived off spec. Some sets have been closer than others but all of them are off spec. That is just how it is and with irons costing $1200 and up, I would definitely have any new irons checked and adjusted before playing them.
