  1. Wow- you are missing some fun and unique golf my friend,,, Check these out - all near your vacation spot: Greywalls Sweetgrass Wild Bluff Newberry CC Indian Lake G & CC Hessel Ridge Sault G & CC Oaks at Kincheloe St. Ignace CC The Rock at Drummond and to play one of the oldest courses in the US-Les Cheneaux GC (9 holes)-formerly accessible only by boat Cross the Bridge south to Mackinaw Club Hidden River Cross the Bridge North to Canada (passport required) to Crimson Ridge put the fishing rod down and golf! You can play until 9:30-10:00 p.m. during Summer!
  2. Go to OnCore and order-these actually are a better choice-I have played both (plius Vice) and attest these beat them all.
  3. I pulled the trigger on the 0211's last Summer but upgraded the shafts to the Tour 105's and ordered the midsize PXG grips....absolutely love them and they are longer than the Ping irons they replaced....I would not pay $30 for Golf Pride grips, but WOULD pay $35 per club for the Tour 105 shafts...well worth the difference in my opinion....go for them!!!!!
  4. Golf Galaxy has them listed on their website today at $199 for pre-order with a ship date of April 7.
  5. Hi, I actually play the PXG 0211 irons,,,have no fear-they are really NOT a true blade. I have played true blades for years and dropped back to these because they do look like a blade but they play much more forgiving. And you are not an idiot for wanting new clubs-just a realist....technology improves the breed and will improve your outcome!
  6. Hello, I change my wedges every two seasons. Why? Groove wear. As I get older and therefore less able to hit all greens in reg-I rely on my wedges more and more. So I want wedges that will stop when they are supposed to and the only way that happens is with clean and sharp grooves. IMHO that is. Hope that helps!
  7. You will love these new irons! I made the move to PXG this April and filled the bag with 4-G 0211's, 0811 Proto Driver, 3,5,7, hybrid. I interchange the clubs to the legal 14 depending on the course and conditions. The #7 fairway metal has been the biggest positive-it rocks! Two weeks ago I was in Dallas and went to the new PXG store and went through a Driver fitting. Ended up with a new Gen 4 0811 Driver in a totally different setup than the Proto driver. They built and shipped within a week. Love the PXG family!
  8. I regularly play a course here in N MI and walking is the only way one can play-no carts. I have a 4 wheel Sun Mountain cart and have used it for at least 10 years. When the pandemic hit last year, the only way you could play here was to walk. That cart came in mighty handy! I love to walk!
  9. I live in Michigan and found that the new jackets with the quilted down front are the bomb-they keep the front of your upper body warm but do not restrict your swing in any way. Many manufacturers offer them now-they are also pretty cool looking.
  10. Foot Joy Pro SL I have all kinds of foot/ankle issues-these are the only ones I own. Also-just watch the weekend pro golf on TV-there is a reason most pros wear FJ Pro SL's,,,,!!!
  11. Hi Jerry, $1K???? Ha! Wait until you really get the bug! The nice thing about starting to play golf is that everyone in your gifting circle will never be at a lost for a present for you! You can get a 3 wedge set of wedges on Ebay for $75-100....just to get you started...
  12. Hi Jerry, welcome to the newest way to become a golf addict... Your clubs are going to get you started. I would suggest pulling the #2 and #3 irons out of the bag-they will drive you crazy trying to hit them when you are starting out. And yes, keep an eye out for a wedge...check Ebay from time to time. Bigger issue is your driver shaft-you might check with a retail outlet like Golf Galaxy and see if you can get a new/newer shaft with an R flex...you should be able to change out the shaft for a reasonable amount of $$-That shaft you have will likely keep you from staying in the short grass. Best of luck with your new sport.
