  1. Will take them all for $70 and $7.95 shipping if no logos and PayPal okay.

      Sorry, Just saw they are tour soft - though they were Pro V1 I'll pass on them

  2. Hey, Ed! I'll take that as a Thank You!
  3. I enjoyed watching Craig Stadler, Ray Floyd, Payne Stewart, Jim Furyk, Lee Trevino, Fred Couples and Bruce Lietzke. Lietzke grooved an over the top fade, which required little practice to maintain, and made a good living never playing more than 25 tournaments in a year. All had different swings, but all of them played well.
  4. Are you currently playing any PM wedge? If not, perhaps getting a couple gently used 2019s would be a good move. If you're unaccustomed to the high toe, big head, slight offset, high bounce, getting new wedges might be a misuse of your time and money. I read several reviews of them, then bought pre-owned from CallawayPreOwned.com for less than the cost of 1 new one. it took a few practice sessions to become accustomed to them, even though I was used to high bounce. Now, they're in the bag. I usually keep my wedges for 3 years. I find them to be easy to hit on a variety of shots. The bounce he
  5. I've been playing the Pro V1x for about 5 years now. I quickly preferred it to the Pro V1 given the ball flight. Back then they were considerably firmer than most all other tour balls. They're softer now, and I like the feel. Played the TM TP5 for about a season, finally gave it up for the V1x. I keep about 6 dozen of the V1 to play in heavy wind in an attempt to keep the flight down. I am so stocked up, I probably won't buy again until the 2025 model becomes available.
  6. I ave a drawer containing 3-4 Swis Army watches. It's been 10 years since I last wore one. I use my phone to keep time.
  7. I "own" about 8-10 pairs of shoes. However I currently wear only two pair. As I've aged I've found I need a wider pair of shoes. To get the right fit, I've found I need an XW in 9.5. Not enough companies provide that option. So, I've relied on FJ to supply me. I currently rock two pair of the FJ Fury. I find them to be comfortable and dry. I would like a firmer sole. As a walker I experienced some big toe tendonitis. Xtra Strength Acetaminophen and Ibuprofen took care of that.
  8. I played all last year in Ray-Ban Original Wayfarers polarized and liked them. However, I'm currently looking at Oakleys. Particularly at the Dark Prizm Golf lenses. Haven't quite decided on which frame, it's between the Flak 2.0 XL and the Portal X. Decided it has to be the Dark (not Black) Prizm for brighter sun. I can play w/o glasses in cloudy weather. I've decided I don't want Polarized. I'd prefer the Prizm as they provide better definition. Now just need to snag a great deal on them. 1/26 Update: Acquired a pair of Oakley Portal X with Prism Dark Golf lenses. I tried on the Portal
  9. I'm not into pleats, but I did recently upgrade a few pairs of shorts. I bought them online at Nordstrom Rack. I suggest you look there if you already haven't. You might find something you like. Went into a store nearby yesterday. Nothing in golf apparel, it must all be online.
  10. Currently wearing DryJoy jacket and a pair of pants I bought at REI. If it wasn't so damn pricey, I'd seriously consider some of the Euro stuff like Pro Quip, Galvin Green. Maybe Galway Bay. I think it's time for a new set anyway, so I'll start trolling online sellers.
  11. I have no personal experience. However, I have friends and playing partners who wear them. Every one of them thinks they are a great shoe. Comfortable, durable, roomy. Next time I'm in the market for shoes, I'll seriously consider buying them. Unfortunately, the one I want the v.4, seldom go on sale.
  12. I needed a cart for most of the 2017 - 18 seasons due to bad hips. Prior to that, most of my golf was played while walking. In 2019 I began walking, again. I think I used a cart a half-dozen times in 2020. I prefer to walk, too. However, I no longer carry my bag, unless it's a 9 hole executive course. Otherwise, It's a push cart for me. Walking keeps me in better shape, gives me the exercise I need, and actually makes rounds more enjoyable. I joined an 'old man's league' at my home course this year. The other three guys are walkers, as well. We're all over 65. Two of my group are in the
  13. There are far too many balls out there I haven't tried for me to say for certain. I have eliminated Srixon as a brand, too hard in my opinion. Snell - same thing. Would not go back to TM TP5 again. Might try the TP5x. Tried the TM Project (a) when it first came out. Sorely disappointed. Haven't played any Bridgestone in so long, not sure what they're like anymore. I'd probably start there. I like a slightly firmer ball, so their softest models are a no for me. Callaway, haven't played anything of theirs in so long. I don't have any interest in fringe market balls like Vice, Cut, Clear etc. M
  14. Hi Eddie, Good luck to you in your quest for fitness. We can all benefit from improving our fitness. In the weight training area. the 5 most important moves are: Push. Pull, Hinge, Squat, Plank. Of these, pulling is probably the least important. Hinging and Squatting are probably the most beneficial to you. Glutes are king. The more you develop them, the more swing power you will have. BMart 519 has some very good ideas. Hingeing and Rotation are high on the list. For equipment, a couple kettlebells will go a long, long way toward strengthening. The key is knowing how to properly sw
