    Lacesr4suckers got a reaction from RockerFCC in BOA vs. LACES   
    I don’t own a single pair of shoes with laces and hopefully never will again. I love the feel of my foot joys with boa. Better fit with the boa and quicker and easier to put on and take off. I have about 100 rounds on my current pair and about once or twice a round they loosen a tiny bit and I give them one more click but I prefer my shoes to be extremely tight.

    I'd also suggest going set wedge. When you're doing full swings with the wedge, you're going to want the familiar feel and performance of the rest of your set. You can still do pitch/bump and runs with it and stuff. But for full swings, you want familiarity with the rest of your full swing irons.

    Currently gaming ping i230 irons 5-pw. Was fitted for them and working well for me. I have mg4 54 and 58 degree wedges also fitted for. Looking for a 50 degree gap wedge. This will be a full swing club almost 100% of the time for me. The mg4 didn’t seem forgiving enough for me at full swing speed and distance was short so left a big gap between that and pw. Any thoughts on if I should just get an i230 uw or a glide 4.0  50? I’m looking for something to go 120-125 yards with some forgiveness

    Lacesr4suckers reacted to sellemental in Best putter grips for claw style putting   
    I've been using the claw grip for about a year and a half now, and have oftened wondered the same question.  Here's what I've found for myself so far.
    I'll second the SS claw grip.   I have the 1.0 on the putter I began the year with and found it real good, and have the 2.0 version on the Evnroll putter I switched toward the end of the season. The 2.0 is quite a bit larger and the pistol is more pronounced, IMO.   I've also experimented with the Lamkin Sink Fit Pistol Rubber Putter Grip and liked it.
    I've also tried the Flatso, and the Flat Cat briefly, and did not like them, and/or did not find they worked well.  Here's why.
    As Alfred said, the pistol grip is crucial for locking the left hand in for the smooth, stable stroke you are looking for, at least for me.  I was sure the Flatso grip would be perfect because of the wide, flat front surface, but turned out not so much.
    Good luck with the stroke.  Distance control was the hardest part for me at first, but after adjusting to the claw grip, it's better now than ever.

    Most of my golfing life I’ve been a 16-20 hdcp. Last year I was a 17. Decided to put some more time and effort into golf so I got fitted for irons this spring. Went there expecting to get fitted into g425s or jpx hot metal or something game improvementish but was surprised when the i230s ended up being the winner. I had been gaming rocketbladez from 10 years ago so anything would be an upgrade but the i230s have been great for me. I’ve played a ton of golf this summer and a lot of work on the range but I still occasionally use the entire face of the club and I definitely notice my poor strikes don’t end up as terrible a result as I probably deserve. I’m fairly steep with my irons and these don’t dig unless I completely chunk one. I’m confident in the i230s hitting my number when I make a decent swing and rarely hit a flier or fall short. I’m still not as strong in my approach game as my driving and chipping but that’s a me thing not a club issue. Played at a 10-11 hdcp since early summer and will definitely be keeping the i230s in the bag next year

    Lacesr4suckers reacted to Alfred DuPuy in Best putter grips for claw style putting   
    Hi, @Lacesr4suckers
    I might be your guy 😉

    I had the same issue - switched to the claw grip (taught it to myself, but it mostly resembles Justin Rose - at least the last time I checked) and that helped me literally stay in the game. I do very much like the SuperStroke Claw grips. I have tried both the 1.0 and the 2.0 with the 2.0 a little bigger as it fits my left hand better since I do play with mid-size grips on all my clubs. So, it just depends a bit on feel and how you normally like your putter grips. Smaller, thinner putter grips are simply bad for me!
    However, when I went to get my current gamer (the glorious Evnroll ER2v for which I got fitted at their Carlsbad location back in April - highly recommended) at Golf Galaxy, I was planning to get the 2.0 put on, but they didn't have one. So, I browsed for a bit and landed on the Winn Dri-Tac Jumbo Pistol Lite. It is a bigger grip, but again, I really like the pistol shape for my left hand and the flat front for my right hand. The key for me with the claw grip is getting a stable left hand (whatever works best) and then a comfortable, connected feel for the right hand. I would highly recommend all three of these grips.
    Hope this helps.

    I had an odyssey mallet the last two years and midway through last summer I got the putting yips worse than I’ve ever seen anyone have. Obviously not the putter’s fault but mentally I wanted to reset with something completely different so I got the sub 70 007 and from the first round this year I’m putting better than I have in my 20 years of golfing. I don’t see me taking that out of the bag anytime soon

    I have the 949x 6H and I love it. Easy to get the ball in the air and good ball speed/distance and forgiving enough on Mishits. I really like that it comes with 3 different weights that are easily swapped out. Originally I was hitting it longer than expected and my gapping was a mess so I put the heavy weight in and I’m hitting it higher and around the 190yard number I want

    1. I’ve been playing for about 20 years but have gotten more into it and more serious the last 5 years. I’m currently a 15 handicap but I broke 80 for the first time already this year in the 3rd round of the spring and am hoping to get down to a 10 handicap this summer
