  1. I play golf with a guy that is equal to or better than a lot of Pro golfers. The guy is just that good with the putter.
  2. Picked these up. Not sure if I will ever use them, but they are a beautiful back up set. Wilson FG62.
  3. I’ve switched to the Pure grips air gun and haven’t had any issues with it. I have had the mouth of the grip get stuck on a few grips where it rolls under on the shaft. I really just dip the tip of my finger in some mineral spirits and just wet the opening of the grip. It really helps the grips slide right on with very little air. Just a couple bursts and then one last burst to seat the butt end. I just found an easy for myself. I had issues with the air gun shown a few posts earlier where I would push just a little too much and it would slide all the in and then split the end of the grip.
  4. Yep, just enough to help slide but not enough to make loose.
  5. Yep. I used that for a short time, but when you get that stubborn grip and split the butt end and ruin a new grip, it sucks.
  6. Yep. That’s what I use. Burns really hot really fast.
  7. Remember if you use a standard grip and adding 4 wraps of tape under the bottom hand it will feel smaller because the material will be stretched thinner to fit over the tape. If you use a midsize grip instead it may feel closer to the +4. In reality if you use a standard grip and want +4 it may take 6 or 7 wraps to get the feel you want.
  8. I did Try Align grips On my irons but had issues. the butt section will move, so those I needed to double side tape down. I didn’t Like them on my irons so I don’t use them. Outside of the align grips I haven’t had any issues with just using blue Painters tape. I’ve used it now for about 3 seasons with Lamkin UTx, Lamkin crossline, And now superstroke S-Tech grips. I prefer this method just for the stand point of mess, and cleanup. I have very little cleanup, and I can take the clubs straight out and use them, I don’t have to wait at all.
  9. The PCC i believe is an Accumulation of all scores posted for that course on that day, and adjusts based on those scores depending how everyone scores within their HCP range. We played Pine Needles in southern pines earlier in the year, it was cold, windy, rainy, and then it snowed from hole 12 until 18. Everyone’s scores were up, I shot an 81, which was the 3rd lowest in our group of 12 that includes 6 guys that have Hcp less than 2. It was a crappy day for golf. This is what it looks like when PCC is applied. you can see on that day the PCC is +1.
  10. For future reference for anyone removing heads buy some Mapp Gas. It’s the yellow bottle for your torch. It burns really hot, really fast. And works really well for steel shafts 8-10 seconds of heat to remove the head. Stubborn heads takes 20-30 seconds of heat. For graphite you 99% need a shaft puller.
  11. You tube. That’s really the easiest place to find info. That is where I learned most of the golf repair/replace things that I do.
  12. With air, there is little to no mess. If you have trouble with using air. Do you have the correct tools? Are you doing it correctly. The idea is not to use 2 sided tape if you are using 2 sided tape it will be a pain to put on with air. I Use blue painters tape and build up the tape the way I want. The I dip a finger into some mineral spirits and put some in the opening of the grip and then wipe some on the blue tape. Just enough to get the grip started on the shaft without it sticking. Put my air gun in and it pushes right on takes about 1 minute From start to finish depending on how many layers of tape I use, and there is no mess. I can take the club straight to the course and use it.
  13. So far the courses here are still open. We have made changes, some more than others. We are keeping distance from one another, don’t touch other people’s equipment, don’t touch or shake hands, no high fives or anything. We just try to keep our distance. The weather here has been pretty good, it’s an outdoor activity and as long as we all take our own precautions we should be able to continue. I do expect that if the number of cases increases greatly that the courses will be shutdown. For now, we are allowed to golf.
  14. So, I live in SC, but I work In NC. I have a note from HR in the car in case I pulled over that says I am required at work as an essential business. Mecklenburg county has a stay in place order, that is where my work is located. Anyway. In the listings of approved Outdoor activity for NC it says that Golf is acceptable provided all social distancing requirements are adhered to. That’s good news right now. We walk mostly now, some folks ride, but just keep away from one another. I have heard that the suns UV rays kill the virus so spending time outside is essential for everyone. It’s just nice that we can still swing a golf club. At least for the time being. Enjoy the time with family and stay safe. If you are allowed to golf. Stay safe and enjoy being outside.
  15. We’re still playing here in SC. We have taken steps to keep safe. No having around after. No snack bar. No rakes, no flags on the putting green, all cups on course have Been flipped over so the ball only falls an inch or so. Flags stay in so no touching. No handshakes, not high fives. Generally just stay away from one another. Walk when possible. As long as we keep our distance from one another. I do think that in the next week or so there will be a stay at home order from our Governor. Outside of golf on Saturday, and Being required to go into work, I just stay at home all other times. Also my work has been deemed essential, so even if there is an Order to stay home I will still be going to work.
  16. Srixon soft feel is also a good ball and carries a lower price point as well. Wilson duo, Callaway Supersoft are all relatively inexpensive and may work well for you. You can try any ball you like there is no one size fits all.

    I was able to get some of these to play. Not the yellow and black but I was able to use the white and red Truvis. This ball feels different to the touch. The cover feels better than previous, it also performed very well. It was I bit longer from the tee Compared to previous model, and it stopped much better than previous models, I think has to do with the cover. I looked like the Truvis pattern was slightly different as well, but I haven’t put them side by side yet to look closely enough. Over all I liked the new ball. I was talking to our club pro who plays PROV1 and he said since all of his tournaments are cancelled he is going to try this ball. He said they feel much different to the touch and is curious how they will perform. I will check back with him after he tries them to see his likes and dislikes. It will be interesting to hear his thoughts on them as a former touring pro.

    I think March 6 was probably pretty close to the preorder email. Not sure if anyone received them for a review or not. I will have some for the weekend round and report back on the performance

    I just didn’t understand the difference between the New AVX and the ProV balls.

    I don’t see a Titleist ball thread. So I guess I’ll ask here since they keep getting brought up. As I am a CS guy and don’t care much for Titleist equipment. If the Prov1 and prov1x are supposedly the cream of the crop golf ball at $52 a dozen, what is the draw for anyone to buy the AVX for the same $52 a dozen? Is AVX different? Is it marketed to different players, Titleist has said numerous times that the prov1 and prov1x will work for everyone. So why the AVX? I really am just curious on this.

    Every high end tour ball costs within $2-3 dollars of each other. Until last years ball testing by MGS Callaway balls were doing quite well. They had that 1 ball go off the planet and suddenly every ball they make is crap. I get it. People want good QC, so they go back and take control of the process. For some who claim to want the QC standard raised for Callaway it’s still not good enough. They have to lure you back. Why? Why does the comPany have to lure you back with a discounted price. You either like the ball and play it, or you don’t. They don’t owe us anything except doing what they are doing. Making a better ball. I don’t have the swing speed that is required for the CSX so that release doesn’t affect me, but I do play the CS and if I had to wait another 2 months while they fixed the QC issues with the CSX I would be angry, especially since the CS is ready for market. For you guys who don’t play the Callaway balls, the release dates don’t matter To you anyway. I am a consumer who does use the CS ball and can’t wait for March 12 so I can get some.
