  1. If there are any club champion locations there, I would recommend that.
  2. It would make the swing weight a ton lighter and also make it a bit stiffer, so you would have to add a good bit of lead tape.
  3. I would agree with you trying the Tensei Orange, it is one of the best shafts I have tested.
  4. I played yesterday, it was a par 70, and I was 7-over thru 10, probably the worst I've played in a few months. Then I finished the last 8 holes in 3 under by making birdies holes 13, 14, and 15 to shoot 74. That is one of my weirdest rounds in a while.
  5. This was earlier this week, on the front 9 I shot 2 under with only 9 putts, I holed out 3 times from off the green and had 3 two putts. Then on the back I had a chance to beat my personal best of 68 but finished bogey-bogey to shoot 69. Also I did a no-driver challenge that day, I wish I could play that good all of the time.
  6. It might be a different stiffness or launch angle, but I am no expert either
  7. I would agree with what everyone else has said, usually selling your clubs to a company like that will not give you much compared to selling it to a person.
  8. I would say buy irons from one of the better direct to consumer brands, like Ben Hogan Golf or Sub 70.
  9. I like a rangefinder better. My GPS will sometimes have bad signal at some courses, and then measure inaccurately.
  10. I think at most your 4 iron should be 2 swing points lighter than your gap wedge, but you should try it that way, and then if it does not work well, just make it where the irons are all around D4.5.
  11. I don't think there is much of a difference between the two. I have not hit the hot metal irons but I have hit both forged irons, and there was not much of a difference at all, which is a lot of the reason I am hitting the 900's.
  12. Yeah, Snell's a really good deal for what you get because it's just as good as most tour balls, most of the other direct to consumer brands are not as good quality.
  13. Not me, too much risk for getting hit with a golf club.
  14. I haven't played too many courses, but the hardest one I've played is probably The Cardinal by Pete Dye. Pinehurst No. 2 is probably second, just because of the greens, the course is wide open.
  15. I second Mid South and Mid Pines, Mid South is probably my favorite course in that area, including No. #2
  16. So far they are really nice, and they spin a lot, I even spun one back from about 55 yards, but I hit a bunker shot and it left some permanent scratch marks on the face, I'm hoping that was because of some rocks in the bunker and not because of the durability of the wedge.
  17. Just got an almost complete new set, the only thing that stayed is the putter, which I might swap out soon, and I also might replace my 5 wood or 3 hybrid with a 3 wood.

  18. I got them, and they look really nice, the bounce is 10 on the 52&56 degree, and 8 on the 60 degree. They spin pretty well, although that could be because of the fresh grooves. It has a true temper shaft and an unbranded grip. only thing I don't like is the grip's alignment, it looks like it is set up open because on the grip, the "Kirkland" stands out more than the "Signature".
  19. There is not much of a difference between the newest blades and those ones, thee is not much technology that they can put there, so I would say buy the cheaper ones.
  20. The player: Current gamer - Bridgestone Tour B RXS Handicap or Ave score - +0.3 7 iron carry distance with current ball - 155 yds Trajectory - mid Putter - Taylormade Corza Ghost, medium/soft insert The ball: Kirkland Signature 3 pc Performance Plus, 2018? Distance - less Trajectory - low-mid Spin - suck back Feel - firm Durability (1 round) - rough shape Rating - Casual Notes or writeup: Great value ball, $24 for 24 golf balls is incredibly cheap for a urethane covered golf ball, the only problems were it scuffed very easily, it spun too much off the driver, and it did not spin as much around the greens compared to other tour balls. It is probably the highest spinning golf ball on full iron/wedge shots I have ever tried, but for some reason just didn't spin much around the greens. I spun one back about 25 feet with a full gap wedge, which is way more than I can do with my normal golf ball.
  21. I would say try the Kirkland Signature, they are really cheap and kind of similar to the Pro-V1 that you were recommended to.
  22. I would say try the 7 iron and if it works better, use it. Otherwise just stay with what you are doing.
