  1. Welcome to the forum and THE game. Agree with others that I would delay getting the 60 until later - if ever. I have carried a 60/12 Volkey but honestly for every shot that lands 2 feet from the pin there are 5 that are terrible. You need more practice that for me is not justified. I will use my 54 instead.
  2. SIM2 max PW, AW (49*/9* bounce) and Volkey 54-10 and 260-12. Considering switching the Volkey’s to increase bounce on the 54* and decrease bounce On the 60* to 4*. I have been trying to use the 60* more for the close in shots that need to fly but that requires practice- I have hit some really close but very inconsistent! I may decide to work more with the 54* to open it up to make these shots. OR maybe I should drop the 60 as you suggest and replace the 54 with a 56*! Good discussion.
  3. My wife started to get serious about the game this spring and we bought the Ping Le2’s from 2nd Swing and she is very happy with them. Finding good clubs especially women’s quality clubs is tough. Big box stores want to push package sets. Was appalled by the responses we got trying to buy quality clubs for her! She had been using a set of Foxbat irons and the improvement was terrific. She is 5 feet petite and we cut the clubs an inch, Callaway RazerX driver is 43 inches. After a couple of lessons at GOLFTEC she is hitting the 5 hybrid 130 so not bad. We have been playing an executive course about every day and she pared a par 4 - on the green in regulation! Her goal starting out was to not miss the ball.
  4. Hi everyone! Recent lurker and new member. Quick intro - I’m 73 and just coming back to the game again after left hip replacement last year. Have played off and on since 12 with some serious stretches playing everyday or so!. Recently got fitted with G400 SFT, 3 wood and TM SIM2 MAX hybrid and irons. Big challenge is to get my swing speed up from 83. Thinking I have taken club tech as far as it will go and need to focus on speed training.
  5. How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score? Started playing golf around age 12 (so 61 years off and on) my first clubs were Wilson Gene Sarazen.
