  1. I still have some new in box Titelist DT SOLO Roll or something like that as well as Slazenger distance balls from about 2008 that were good for an extra 30 yards or more over the ProV1x I was playing. I had some silly long drives back then with those balls.....
  2. PGA must be worried... said they would suspend\permanently expel any member that jumps ship. Could the PGA win the lawsuit? Read that the wording is pretty specific in their membership rules\by-laws..... Do they have the stones to expel a big name?
  3. Boy how much could you do for JUNIOR GOLF with some chunk of that $40M? How about pick your players and have them play a skins game to determine which charity gets the the $$$$.... Maybe even give it to some of the golf courses to lengthen them.
  4. #2 was more the self reflection on whether it was time to rework my swing to something that will age better as I get older, weaker, and less flexible. Your suggestion on #3 makes sense and is on the radar. #5 was pretty much tongue in cheek as the steel shaft will be waaaayyy heavy! I picked up the old TM Ti Bubble driver and couldn't believe I swing it as fast as I did. Almost like swinging a new driver with a weight donut!
  5. Worse, it could go the way of bowling.... in bowling, between the ball cover technology over the years and allowing two handed rolls (like we used to do when midnight drunk bowling to see how much we can curve the ball).... The two handed roll produces extremely high revs - much more that one handed.... too much spin and power changed the game... a 300 game was relatively rare and they gave you a gold ring for it - from what I understand, it got to be too common and they stopped giving you the ring for your achievement. (someone may come in and correct me here, but that is what I've been told)
  6. So in my last thread I asked about anyone comparing them on a monitor. Just following up on the saga, but figure this needs it's own thread as it might evolve into settings and shaft discussions. First, I got an answer to my message to True Temper asking what they would recommend as their shaft that is closest to the Grafalloy Blue 65X, TrueTemper recommended the ProLaunch Red X. I plotted some flex numbers from a Grafalloy Blue thread from 2020 on another site and they look close.... So, I got my hands on a 2107 M1 9.5* and a ProLaunch Red X to test out. No access to a monitor yet so I t
  7. As long as they NEVER have "cart path only" and the green fees are one price - they don't charge an extra fee for carts (makes no sense if the require carts) then I am sorta OK with that.... To be honest, last year when they made everyone take their own carts, several times we had a foursome complete 18 in about 2.5 hours on a 7000 yard course and one time two of us played another 9 in 55 minutes. We were still waiting for greens to clear to hit our approach shots. If no one was in front of us and we were in the mind to play speed golf a foursome could do 18 in 1:45 - 2:00 hours but that woul
  8. In the past ten years I've had right knee surgery and shortly after I got close to 75% recovered I turned my left ankle inside out and broke the leg. For some reason I got really out of shape and gained 100 pounds. Up until then I walked all the time except for outings. Even then, my father in law drove the cart and I walked... it was sort of a motorized caddie. The two courses I play the most you could call hilly..... How about walking this course - or would you even play it? (Note that all of the greens are elevated to some extent and have given me US Open type roll back/off and this i
  9. Do any of you remember when the "wasp waist " shaped putter grip was banned? I think they may have wanted to go after the ping grip too but I might be wrong there.... it was a Long time ago.
  10. I personally don't care, but can see the advantage it could provide by bracing and physically limiting the wrist movement in the stoke. How do you control it? Allow the grip to contact the wrist no further than 2" above the top cuff of a normal golf glove. I agree that the flat of the grip should be perpendicular to the face.
  11. PKC - If you don't mind telling us .... How much $$$$ do you have in that fitting and the new driver?
  12. Shapotomous - I'll need to see if they'll do that. Maybe arrange to get there early or something.... ExProNY - Thanks for the info. That swing speed is consistent to what my out of shape swing currently produces. Do you remember the loft and any details on AoA\launch angle.
  13. Found a TXG video that I forgot about that Ian swings a 510TP vs an M3...... I'll have to check out golfshaftreviews.... How extensive is their database?
  14. No 2nd Swing in PA anymore. there used to be one in Monroeville about 15 years ago, it where I bought the R580XD. There is a Golf Galaxy and a Club Champion in Robinson Twp\Pittsburgh that are within a half mile of each other but over an hour drive one way for me. The course I played last year has a couple golf simulators but they seem to have them set up to play a virtual round and not hit balls on the monitor for an hour. There is also a local fitter that has monitors for fitting and does the virtual golf in the winter. I don't know if he rents the time out with full access to the numbers. I
  15. Thanks guys. I subscribe to Shiels' channel and have watched most of his videos. Also watch Ian at TXG and extensively searched utoob for videos of tests involving comparisons with older clubs.... What I was going after on the old heads was based on something that Ian said in one of the TXG videos that struck a chord with me. To paraphrase: "a lot of the launch characteristics and forgiveness of a head are baked into the DNA of the head (because of the face construction and the weighting)". We have seen so many tests of the clubs from the last 6 years that we pretty much know what they wi
