  2. Well, I'm getting rid of my i20 and going back to the Titleist 910/913. I'm kicking myself for ever getting rid of the 910 I had. My question for everyone: What shaft out there is comparable to the Graphite Design EV-7? That shaft with the 910D2 head was the best combo I have ever played. I might pull the DI-7 shaft out of the Ping and give it a try but really want the EV-7 or something very similar. Thank you all for any help, Jason
  3. I think it is because there were a limited number printed. I know you can stumble on some 3rd or 4th editions fairly reasonable.
  4. Hello, The Confidential Guide to Golf Courses, and The Anatomy of a Golf Course: The Art of Golf Architecture both by Tom Doak are great. Masters of Design: The Golf Courses of Colt, Mackenzie, Alison and Morrison by Peter Pugh and Henry Lord. Golf Course Architecture in America by Geo. C. Thomas Jr. Secrets of the Great Golf Course Architects: A Treasury of the World's Greatest Golf Courses by History's Master Designers by Michael Shiels. I hope this helps and you enjoy them. Jason
  5. This has been a good topic to read about. I am a Golf Course Superintendent and have sent out a few resumes over the last week or so. I wanted you all to read the end of my cover letter and I believe it pretty much sums up what you all are talking about aside from a few things. "Personal values and wholesome ethics motivate me to strive for optimal performance, and I pride myself for being an individual who has earned the trust and respect of all for whom I have worked and of all who have worked for me. While it is easy to make a golf course green, it is the combination of attention to detail and kind service given to the members and guests which truly separate a memorable golf experience from the mediocre. I would be honored to have the opportunity to both share and further develop my talents at the" One thing I've learned about this business is it's so hard to get a customer to return after you have lost them because of a horrible experience. You may get new customers in there but overtime it's the repeat business that will pay your bills. It's a shame that some of the owners, management companies, and Pro's out there do have the attitude of you need us we don't need you. If anyone knows anywhere looking to hire a Superintendent let me know
  6. Looks great. I'd like to try one of the Black Ops shafts. I've heard nothing but good things about them. Take care, Jason
  7. I was actually at a club in Michigan and just moved back to Akron recently. I was at Firestone for about 6 years. The Club I was at in Michigan unfortunatley succombed to hard economic times and unfortunately closed so now I'm looking for a new job. I have a few interviews scheduled in January and hopefully wil be moving down south or out west. I'll try to attach a few pictures from the tournament at Firestone. They were taken from the top of the water tower. Have a Happy New Year, Jason
  8. They have the Matrix Ozik Altus shaft. I've played this shaft in other hybrids and really like it. If I were to go with a steel shaft it would definitely be the KBS. My friend has the KBS in his 19* XTD and it's really good as well. For me it launches very high and with the xtd head it's ridiculously long. I've actually seen him stop the ball on a really firm green from about 235-240 out. I do not have any experience with the Talamonti or the TT BiMatrix other than reading a few things about them. All in all if I get rid of the altus I would more than likely go with the KBS. Thanks, Jason
  9. Well Santa was nice to me this year, lol. He brought me a pro a12 in 18* and 20*. Now I need to go hit both of them and figure out if I want to play them both or just one and add another wedge. Well I hope you all are having a safe and fun holiday season. Take care
  10. I am. That's a beautiful property. I had the priveledge of meeting Herb Kohler once. He's a very humble individual. I would like to any of the courses there once.
  11. That's what I've been looking for and after reading the review on here it sounds like a good fit for me. It also has the Altus shaft which is my favorite hybrid shaft. Thanks
  12. Thanks, lol. I have my days with the old girl . As far as hybrids I have been looking at the pro black and the a12 pro.
  13. Well here are some pics of WIMB. I need some help figuring out a hybrid, lol. I've played the cobra, TM Rescue 11, and RBZ Tour TP's this year but none of them won me over. The last pic is my putter. I've had it for about 22 years and always go back to her. I've just never found another to replace her. Thanks, Jason
  14. Check out Red Rock. It's an amazing property. If it's early enough out there and the Bermuda hasn't came back yet it's very cool to play. They overseed everything but the fairways(and greens of course, they are bentgrass there). So you hit bombs that seem to roll forever on the dormant fairways. Very fun to play.
