    I feel like not many amateurs have them in the bag nowadays. I used to be heavily team hybrid, but I really like the look of a nice fairway wood at address

    Go to a fitter and get the Trackman or Foresight data.

    Just bought a beauty of a driving iron. All black has got me feeling some sort of way. ‍

    This might be helpful. It’s how I approach chips as well. Notice the feet are close together.

    Bridgestone Tour B X or Titleist Pro V1x are my go-to's. Both have the consistent spin I need for my game around the greens and stopping power with irons in, plus they go miles off the tee with the driver.
    Bridgestone are normally at a better price point here in NZ but I just shop the sales usually.

    I am in the same boat on this. I am playing the Tour B X and it may be user error, but I have shaved 11.6 strokes off my last 10 rounds since playing this ball. That could be attributed to the lesson, but it’s working and I am not changing.
    Plus I am hitting my 5W 270 off the tee and spinning wedge shots from 50 out. I have never done either, so I am really digging this ball.

    I’m an 11 hdcp and was playing 14 yo Ping G15s.  I tried many many different clubs then recently went through a fitting process.  I was thinking P-D clubs but the only one I hit consistently well was the Titliest T200.  In the end after hitting everything under the sun over multiple days with my fitter, it came down to the Callaway ST Rogue Max and JPX923 HM. Both had the same carry but the 923s hands down had better spin.  I just didn’t perform as well with the pros, and it wasnt even debatable. 
    I can’t answer how much less forgiving the pros would be, but I don’t really see the top line being that much thinner.  But to get a better gauge, the shaft you choose will make all the diff in the world.  I’ve got recoil ESX 460 F3.  I received my HMs a couple weeks ago and am amazed at the spin and high trajectory I’m getting, and the higher trajectory contributes to longer carry.  
    I don’t mean any disrespect, but if you are having trouble breaking 100, your issues are way more than the visual of the top line.   You might be better served first by taking a couple lessons and getting some swing issues fixed.  You might get some immediate and significant improvement which would then get you in a better position to do the club search. Maybe find a fitter that also gives lessons.  That’s what I ended up doing and I think it gave the fitter a better understanding of my swing and tendencies.

    I have the HMP's and could have gone with the HM's.

    I would have a serious look at the HM HL or the HM's.

    This a good video from Chris Voshall from Mizuno about the HM HL, HM and HMP.
     

    One thought, I don't know why people get so hung up on top line. It's not like they're 1" thick.

    Best “tip” was don’t rely on tips to improve your game; find quality instruction/coaching instead.

    Earlier this year I wanted to class up my shoe game. I played around with the MyJoys feature and designed these premiers. I was pleased to see the spikeless option as I really don’t like or need too much grit on the bottom of my shoes. I’m very pleased with the immediately soft and supportive fit.

    Picked up a 4i to fill out the top end of my iron set better, Mizuno Pro 223 w/ Modus 3 Tour 115 X shaft. The 5i is so butter and easy to hit I'll replace my 4HY with this baby.

    The U505 with the Tensei 1K black really has been nice.  It’s a very predictable and reliable ball flight.  I chose the Tensei 1K because I’ve enjoyed that lineup and while the white was my first choice but unavailable, the black plays very similar.  Notable differences are the cosmetics…it’s a matte finish compared to the shiny white 1K.  Both have XLink tech and both have a similar feel.  I say similar, not exact.  The black is a little more sturdy and doesn’t have the softer feel I am used to with the white.  It’s not abrasive by any means, just that I don’t get that extra oomph that I feel with its cousin.

    Snagged a new polo today while at the course working on the range, love the way Adidas polos fit and I've passed it up all season. Buddies trip next weekend so it's going into the rotation soon!

    I've struggled to aim the putter properly this year with my Edel blade and have been on the hunt for a mallet with longer alignment lines. I was able to get a stroke lab tuttle and cash in exchange for my Evnroll 2.2 I no longer user. Had my best night ever on the Stack putting app last night. If I can't aim this thing, then it's time for a lesson!

    So I haven’t bought this but, a coworker and I were discussing my new found love of teeing off with my 4 iron on certain holes that I really just need to be in the fairway. Sometimes I wish that I had a bit more distance of course which is where this bit comes in. He brought in a Mizuno MP-18 2 iron to take out and play a round with. At first I told him that there is no way I’ll be able to hit that consistently. He told me to try it anyways so I brought it home today and will hopefully get a few swings with it this weekend. I don’t have any real expectations but I am intrigued.

    The diamond is not meant for you at 92 ss. It is Brookes Koepka’s ball. You’d be much better off with the regular Zstar. Nothing better to me
