  1. Oh, I gamed a set of 80’s Taylor made tour preferred musclebacks. Beautiful clubs that I wish I still had.
  2. it would be nice if all new clubs required a fitting. IF everyone is so enamored with what pros are playing; they should learn from them. Pros don't play anything without being fitted and often times tweeked well outside of normal ranges. Yes, they are orders of magnitude better than the average golfer, but that doesn't mean we should buy stock anything.
  3. the only way to know is to hit them and see the numbers and hopefully get a course demo too. i struggle with doing great with my new irons for a month or two and then struggling. I keep reverting back to my 20 year old Hawk eye tungstens and the only thing i can come up with is the sole/turf interaction. I hit those old clubs the same distance as my Loft Jacked PXG 0311 gen 4.
  4. I really tried to laugh it off as much as was possible on the course. but seeing things you have never seen is hard. I'm lucky in that i dont have any meds yet but for sure fitness and weight are different and that has certainly affected my speed and turn. I keep thinking that if i practice enough my speed and rotation will return. I suspect that's wishful thinking and the only cure is getting back into the gym and working on Shoulder and spine mobility
  5. I think for most casual golfers the hardest thing is turning hitting balls into real practice. I like the way you have yours designed, but thats probably another huge topic for all.
  6. I took about 5yrs off from the game but have slowly been getting back into playing regularly over the last couple of months. On the good news front my 4.5 hc only slipped to 9.5 but what has me reaching out today is the gross inconsistency. I am getting about one range session and one round per week. Last week was a fairly simple 82 that should have been a 79 apart from one horrendous drive. But yesterday was something i havent felt, maybe ever. it was like someone else was swinging the clubs. I had no feel and thinned nearly every single shot. its a testament to my short game that i salvaged a 92. But i left the course scratching my head trying to figure out why my swing felt so off. Any one else go thru this? do i just rack it up to the vagaries of golf. I honestly felt as if something were physically wrong with me even though I am quite well and healthy. I'd love to get everyone's take on this.
  7. I think that its possible that we are missing some key data. I believe that their tour pros are pushing for more releases; and that drives more into the rest of the market.
  8. wasnt the Yonex that Daley used a type of thermo plastic. I remember hitting it in 6 degrees
  9. Let me start by saying I’ve been a Callaway iron player for 30 yrs . Ever since I bought the Hawkeye Titaniums sand the ball exploded off the face almost effortlessly. I stil keep them in the garage. I was fitted for Apex 19 forged and they never felt right. So I was fitted for PXG gen 4 about a month ago and today was my first time to hit them and first round. NOT ALL FORGED IRONS ARE CREATED EQUAL. I finally have the feel I’ve been searching for . This irons are incredible and I’m sure in part because the shaft feels right. I’m sure my fitter was just better . But those heads feel like butter , the sound is great and the feedback was instantaneous. I am thankful for their veterans discount which put them just slightly cheaper than my Apex 19’s. I shot 85 at Falconhead here in Austin. I can’t wait to get some range time with these.
  10. I use mine a lot. I tee off on tighter holes with it and on most par 5s to have a go at the green. I also have a 4 wood which is so easy to hit. Not getting rid of mine!
  11. That was Bryson and he is still playing single length. He started with Edel and the switched to cobra
  12. I switched to the Winn Tour wrap a few years ago and love them. I no longer feel like I need a death grip to control the club. They a tacky and soft but still provide good feedback. I replace them ever year
