  1. Don't forget to review the Driving Iron! That wedge looks great! Do you like the sole grind?
  2. I watched him win last year on the European Tour. I think he's got the game to play over here. Couldn't root against Jason Day though. Great match!
  3. All this talk of Hireko's "scramble club" got me to thinking that I never posted aformat that I played last year. It's a regular 4 man scramble on the par 4 holes but on the par 5's, after your drives, you play two of your balls, splitting up into 2 man scrambles, then you add your scores together. So if you and your teammate birdie, but the other two par, you put 9 on your scorecard. A great score would be 6, two eagles (in which case you belong on another site, rhymes with perks), a bad score would be 12, two bogies. The par 3's are played like this: everyone plays their own ball, and you add up the two best, so a good score would be 4, two birdies, bad score 8, two bogies. A normal par 72 becomes par 104, 52 per side. and they're plenty more opportunities for skins. My team won a skin with an 8 on a par 5, we had two birdies. Also card playoffs would seem to be a thing of the past, with so many more scoring differences. We've incorporated this format into a local scramble, and everyone thought it was great. It's only confusing the first time you do it.
  4. I see your bag except for the putter is all Hireko, which I think is cool, especially since you play to a one! 1. Did you build them all? 2. How do the Apollo steel shafts compare to True Temper shafts? 3. Woods and hybrid, Acer, but the irons are Power Play Rawpower. Why did you choose those? I need a 4 and 5 and wonder why you chose those over an Acer offering. 4. Your wedges and Driving Iron are beautiful! You should be proud of your build! Thanks!
  5. I see you put a steel shaft in the Driving Iron. What club length did you make it? Hireko's RC of 40" would seem to indicate a graphite shaft. Looking forward to more pics!
  6. Callaway. Driver: Big Bertha FW: X2 Hot 3W Hybrids: X2 Hot19 and 23 Irons: Apex, 5-P Wedges: MD2 50, 55, 60 Putter: Odyssey Versa #9 Ball: SR 2
  7. Rover, tell me about the Death Stick
  8. According to Ironfinder.com, it is a 1964 Wilson Dynapower Staff 7 iron. 35 Bucks for Good, 18 for Poor. Wish the whole set had been there! Actually, i hit this 7 iron as far as I hit my Adams A3, and it measures 36 inches! My daughter was supposed to take pics, will still try to get that done.
  9. Very stand up of Cobra to send along a driver, now GET TO WORK!! Just kidding, but I'll bet you can't wait to get started!
  10. Lets not forget the shafts. What shafts do the sets have? Will you have to re-shaft one of them? That's another expense to consider.
  11. Will post photos (after daughter takes them and shows me how to the other stuff, lol) but buying more of the set is moot. The only other irons of that set are the 2 and 3, pretty sure they are out of my league! I do think I have a pretty good practice 7 iron, though.
  12. Saw some in the bin at Goodwill today, bought the 7 iron S shaft, very good grip, for 2 bucks. I figured it could be a good practice club (muscle back, small blade). Holy crap! When I made a good swing it was at least a club farther than my regular irons (Adams A3). And honestly I didnt make too many bad swings considering I had a cortisone shot in my back this afternoon (don't tell my wife I was swinging a club)! Now what? I'm wondering about the rest of the set. I need a 5 iron but wonder if I'd have the same success but for less than a beer I could find out. My Goodwill find of all time was a full set of Warrior forgings (junk) but the they were shafted with 5.0 Rifles, and got them all for $11.98. We also found a pair of Mephisto Golf shoes, Made in Portugal, my wife's size, brand new for $15.
  13. Congrats Mrs. MBP! I know you'll do a great job of putting these through their paces!
  14. Nearest Dick's has a Callaway cart and I was able to hit the new X Forged 6 iron. I had a TT GS-95 S300 in it and I think I could game these (12 hdcp).
  15. 80% of the guys at another site do this all the time, after they tip their XXX Obi-Wan Light Sabre shaft 1/4". That tipping helps dispersion, too!
  16. You are absolutely right, JMiller, take the phone off the hook!
  17. Can't talk with tongue hanging out of my mouth..............but it's great to be a man!
  18. RBC was fun to watch, would've like Charley to finish it but was a good ending no matter who won. Glad to see Jerry Kelly have a good weekend, should be exempt in New Orleans. Watching Mark Warren implode this morning was painful to watch.... Too bad for Lizette Salas Saturday after firing a 64, but I think she's gonna win one soon, and made a runaway exciting. happy for Suzanne Petersen. All in all, a good weekend for TV golf.
  19. Duffer, if you do get there please report on the new forged wedge heads (the black ones). I'm very interested in them, need new 56 and possibly add a 60, and respect your ideas on these.
  20. I'm sure everyone's heard Steve's take on the drop, that he thinks a DQ was in order. According to Rex Hoggard from Golf Channel, a lot of other Tour pros and caddies feel the same way. We probably should let this drop(pun intended), but I figure they let him move a friggin' boulder, so whatever's good for Tiger, blah, blah blah....
  21. Kinda off topic, but after seeing it a few times this week, I sure wish I had Lee Westwood's iron swing.
