  1. Try the Maxfli Softfli and Maxfli Straightfli. Both can be found at Dick’s in double dozens for a very affordable price.

  4. Not so much when you hook your foot around the bottom bracket.
  5. Decided to replace my woods grips as there were different ones….ordered four grips from Pure…here is the installation…as you can see, I am an air guy which makes it somewhat easier and less messy.
  6. My Titleist T300 irons come with a 43* PW and a 48* GW. I followed this up with Edison 53* and 57*. Yardages: PW 104 - 110 GW 90 - 98 53* 75 - 80 57* 60-67

  9. As a side note, I ordered a practice net for my backyard. At just $50 I thought, why not? It came in today, said 10 minute setup, took me 30 minutes…..anyone else have one of these?
  10. As a long time MGS member, 13 years, I must say thanks to all the staff. I really appreciate the time and effort put forth to make MGS the best golf forum on the planet!
  11. Thanks …lawn, I use Shot Scope so I do indeed have before “Strokes Gained” . I have captured the last 15 rounds and will report it.
  12. In 1959, the City of Frankfort, Kentucky opened a new park called Juniper Hills, located just west of the city. Juniper Hills included a Par 72, 18 Hole rolling terrain golf course and an Olympic size swimming pool. My Grandfather and his buddies joined the club and began playing every week. I was only 8 yrs old, but my Grandfather decided I was old enough to be his caddy. So I began my golfing career pulling a Bagboy pull-cart filled with Powerbilt golf clubs up and down the rolling terrain of Juniper Hills. As a caddy, I learned the rules of golf and how the game was played. My first set of clubs were a hodgepodge set of old hickory shafted clubs, leftovers from my Grandfather’s old clubs. Ones that he took to Africa when he was building a sawmill to harvest mahogany wood for office furniture in 1948-49. He was a Civil Engineer. They carved out some land in the jungles of the Gold Coast(now Ghana) for a 9 hole course and played it for their recreation. Sadly, today I only have the putter left, so it hangs on the wall above my desk at home. I progressed from the hickory sticks to used Powerbilts that were my Grandfather’s. At age 10, I got my first set of cleats(steel spikes of course). I felt like I was king of the world when I walked around the clubhouse area going clickety-clack, clickety-clack. I spent my summers at Juniper Hills, just a mile from my home, caddying in the mornings then either hawking lost balls, putting for pennies or playing in the hot Summer afternoons. I witnessed a Hole in one at age 13 when one of my friends aced the 140 yard Par 3 #6. For my High School Graduation, my Grandfather gave me a new set of Powerbilt irons. I got my Ace in August, 1985 at Pine Ridge Country Club in Winnfield, LA. When I moved to Florida in 1987, I was a 10 Handicap, gaming Nicklaus Muirfield irons. Unfortunately, I was either working, or playing with my 4yr old daughter so I did not get much time to retain my handicap and watched it slip to an 18. Fast forward through the years to now, I have been playing with a 6” steel plate, 13 screws & an inch of my left hip bone in my left wrist (ice skating accident in 1998). The inch of my left hip was to make both arms the same length again. Because of the injury, my handicap ballooned to the mid 20’s for several years, so I moved to graphite irons to reduce as much vibration as possible. I was able to get my handicap back down to 13 for a few months in 2011, but that did not last. For the past several years, I have been an 18. My course handicap is a 9 as we play from the Senior tees (5,033 yards). I also have two Ligaments damaged in my Left Ankle(too many ankle sprains). The Dr’s offered surgery but I declined because I was not ready to stay off of it for 4 to 6 months and the surgery was not a given success. I am an Accountant(Ky State Univ. 1977) that retired in Jan 2017 after 40 years mostly in healthcare and played 4 days a week wearing an ankle brace. I got tired of the brace and decided to play without it. I know when it is weak, I can slap on the brace. My drives usually range from 185 to 205, with an occasional 220 and my 6i is my 150 yard club. I am now 72 years old and play golf 3 times every week. I retired from running the Saturday Game, that routinely had 44 - 50 players. I joined a different club, Heritage Isles, and play Mon/Wed/Fri with a dozen guys aging from 65 to 83. • I have previously reviewed Cobra Bio Cell, Cobra F6 irons and Cobra F8 Full Bag Challenge for My Golf Spy. All were excellent sticks for a mid to high Handicaper. I also reviewed the Evnroll ER6 putter and Tour Edge CBX119 4 hybrid as well as golf balls by Bridgestone and Maxfli. • My Bag is as follows: Vice Cart Bag, Driver: PXG 12* 0811 XF driver with PX Evenflo Riptide Senior shaft; Fairway Woods: PXG 0211 5 and 7 wood with PX Evenflo Riptide regular shafts & Tour Edge E523 9 Wood with Fubuki HD regular shaft. Irons: Titleist T300 5-9 + PW(43*) & GW(48*) with Fubuki MV Senior shafts. Wedges: Edison 53 & 57 with KBS PGI 80 gram graphite shafts. Note: the wedges are 45/50/55. Putter is Nike Method Core Drone 33” and Evnroll ER2 33” both with Evnroll Gravity Grips. • I use the Shot Scope X5 watch for recording my rounds and a MG Golf rangefinder to get an accurate distance to the pin. • My current ball is the Maxfli Tour CG. I also game the Titleist Tru Feel in cooler months.
