    38/40 today.  3 birdies today, 2 of them were gross skins and one of them paid both gross and net.   Double bogeyed a par 3 when I 3 putted 😄  

    We had the same round... 38/40 for me also...lol.

  2. My group usually gives putts shorter than two ft. It speeds up play and 9 times out of ten no one is missing a very short putt. If we are playing for a little $$$.... no gimmies...lol.

    The default Titleist weight is labeled as STD. Therefore the plus is heavier and the minus is lighter.

    Cutting 1/2” off the shaft reduces the swingweight by about 3 SW points. 1 swingweight point is about 2 grams.

    Thanks. So I would need the +6 for 1/2"?

  4. This might be a dumb question, but I'm not a club builder/tinkerer...lol. I have a couple of shafts I want to try in my TS3. I want to see what happens if shorten the shafts by 1/2" and 1". What weights do I need to keep the swing weight where it is now with a 45.5" shaft. 


    I'm confused when I look at the  numbers for the weights from Titleist. As I understand it, 12 grams is the standard weight? So do I order weights that say +???  Why don't they just say how many grams they are instead of + whatever? 


    If I shorten one of the shafts by .5" I would need a +3 to regain the swing weight? +6 for one inch?

    I am doing the wedge practice.   It is the worst part of my game and if I can get that worked out,  my game will be in a really good place.  I don't hit my 58* very often and am working to make the 54 my go to club.  

    I'm the same... I don't trust my wedges. I blade them too often. My 54* is my go to for all chip shots around the green.

  6. I knew there was no way I was going to keep scoring in the 70's for the rest of the year. My brother and I played a different course today that was 6200 yards from the white tees. I shot 39 and 44 for an 83. I missed a few putts that might have netted me a 79 or 80 even. I'll take that every time. It was a good day, and the score wasn't terrible...lol.

  7. I'm going to renege on my earlier post a bit. If I could be relatively certain that 300 yard drives would be playable most of the time, I would probably opt for the distance. 300 yard drives are useless if you have to punch out of the trees or are in a hazard..... or playing from the adjacent fairway over trees. For me, I think no 3 putts would lead to better scores... unless I could be fairly accurate with 300 yard drives.

  8. I bought the TS3 this year. I struggled hard for while. I adjusted the weight to the rear of the club and set it one click toward draw. I have been playing it there for most of the year. I don't bother with the settings once I find one that works... most of the time...lol.

  9. 39/41 today. Couldn't get the putter to cooperate...lol. Sometimes it just isn't your day. So many lipped out and burned edges. Oh well..... there is always another day.
