  1. Gunna play my first game in like 3 weeks tomorrow. Still no answers to my physical problems, but gunna go with the “easy swing”…
  2. Dayum, these are sweet… somebody needs to buy these!
  3. Been about 3 weeks since a full round now, and sitting here reading all kinds of the injury posts has really crept into my head. My last drs appointment got cancelled due to a freak power outage as I was signing in, so I still have no answers, nor a new appointment as they promised to call back to reschedule, but of course they haven’t yet… terrible patient relations with staff there, looking for a new urologist but what a pain these days for anything medical. im beginning to feel like I might not get to play for a few months and it’s really freaking me out as I finally feel proficient at this game, and then bam, the rug gets pulled out from under my feet by a medical situation. I’m thinking I suddenly understand how you guys that get shut down by winter feel now. and also, just getting an amazing new driver that’s longer and super forgiving, but that I can’t swing must be like finally getting a 1970 hemi cuda, but not being allowed to drive it due to a broken leg or something. it just ain’t my day…
  4. The TSr2- it’s actually a perfect driver for me as I’m all over the face- and oddly, when I do my big swing, I am more in the sweetspot, and they really go long- but it seems like my body is rejecting the big swing. Hopefully my drs can get me figured out soon
  5. Back went out again, but I’ve concluded it’s my kidney cyst- long story- but anyways- it fired off on the 9th tee to where I had to actually pick up and go home- extremely painful- makes me mad because I was -1 and had just hit back to back 275 yd drives with the TSr… now I’m back on the couch taking heavy duty Tylenol… gotta be tough to get old….
  6. I’m guessing he is young and tall… a 6 goes 160… that’s it. Anyways, the 7-wood rocked today- love that epic max
  7. Rained pretty good yesterday so we had to skip the day, and so today we had to keep on the cart path… ohhh the misery! The harrah! anyways, shot ok…
  8. First game in a week due to my back blowing out- I played with an easy swing today and shot stoopid good. it just totally reinforced Ernie els whole career…
  9. I gotta tell ya guys, this driver is amazing. I only missed one fairway today- and had 4 bombs in the 270-280 range, one of those was over 300, but it’s downhill… the others were those 240-260 mishits, that were still in the middle! The old Mavric SZ was just as long on good hits, but the mishits were very punishing. it was expensive as one club can get- but after 2 games- it’s priceless! I would say that you should really be honest with yourself about getting the 3 or the 4, as you need to be a very precise ball striker. Yes, on a clean hit, they’ll go farther- but if you’re like me and tend to miss the sweetspot more often than you care to admit, get the 2. It’s a remarkable club
  10. Game #2 with the TSr2, and matched my 73 from the first game. Just flat thrilled with this driver…
  11. First round with the TSr2 today, and shot a 73. they punched and sanded the greens yesterday, so that made putting an adventure- the driver is great- super forgiving, and still as long as the Mavrics good hits, and way better on bad hits. Way better- I didn’t really strike the ball super crispy, but the driver was still long and in the fairway all day- makes the game much easier on those days where you’re not on top of it…
  12. Ok!, first day out. well I only had two bombs, that went slightly longer than the Mavric SZ, but, and it’s a pretty big but, I hit 12 of 14 fairways. I actually had a pretty poor day of ball striking but low and behold, they were all decent 240-260, and in the fairway! Ended up with a +2 ,73. and this is why I’m super glad I got the 2, and not the 3. On 2 holes I would have hit one less iron in, but I got to hit short irons in all day. It was chilly this morning, and I had a few layers on which restricted my swing a bit, morning dew, etc. which all hinder distance, so no real surprises now the feel and the sound are incredible. Good hits were a good snappy crack, and actually felt kinda soft, similarly to a clean iron shot, you don’t really feel it that much. But the sound is delicious. anyways, a very positive first outing, although I envisioned an extra 20 yards every shot, that didn’t happen, but my partner said he didn’t think anything was going to go longer than the Mav did anyways, but the accuracy and mostly the forgiving-ness was wayyyy better… next round is Friday- can’t wait
  13. 43/37 front 9 was a little rough. Was a stiff wind all day, one of the guys even quit after 9. but! Guess what showed up early? bad news is I can’t play it till Wednesday…
  14. Played well, and more importantly, was getting my baby draw back. really trying to get that swing smoothed out before my new driver gets here next week
  15. Another go hum round, but, had 4 birdies so the score ended up good. But the highlight of the day was this little old guy named Mike, who btw, had his name embroidered on his bag, who joined us for the round. He has some kind of of tournament there on Friday, so he was out to figure the track out. We helped all we could with some local knowledge. but the cool part was this guy, at 77, was deadly! Not long or anything, but dead straight down the middle all day. Plus he had a nice little short game. Lots of fun…
  16. Ho hum yesterday, and off I go for today…
  17. Went in for a driver fitting today, and guess which one won the day.. hint, it wasn’t the rogue, stealth, cobrah, mizzy, etc, which interestingly all seemed nice, but didn’t really go longer than the Mav… it was the TSr2 9° on a Tensi Blue 55g S. i did hit a few of the TSr3’s 5-7 yards longer, but I also hit a few shorter. It seemed like as long as you got the club on the face ANYWHERE, it went long. Now remember I’m just a fat old guy so my Mavrik were avg 255ish. The tsr2 avg 273, and the tsr3 avg 273.5. While the 3 went longer on sweet spot hits, it definitely went shorter on off center hits. The tsr2 just went good every swing. So i ate my ego, and decided the reality is that I’m not the guy who bangs the sweet spot again and againI kept mixing in my Mavrik SZ to make sure it was all apples to apples. It literally averaged 18 yards longer, and even the tired out final swings were still going 5-10 longer than good Mavrik shots. Now, I doubt I’ll see 18 more yards avg on every drive, but honestly, if I see 5-10, with more shots in the short grass, I’ll be ecstatic. i tried the 10°, and the regular shafts, but the spin went up and the descent became more abrupt. it’s ordered and will be here in 2 weeks or less…
  18. Played decently, but the big story is that, you’ll have to go to the drivers page/ Titleist TSR section to hear about… I can’t Imagine a more direct teaser than that folks…..
  19. First off, congrats KZED 18! my shot of the day was after a decent drive that left me on a bit of a side hill. I swing a 5 wood at that leave and topped it, leaving me 180, out of a heavy grass lie. pulled out the trusty 7-wood epic max, and put it 12’ from the pin. Come to think of it, I also had anothe 7-wood save after a drive nicked a tree and killed it. So the 7-wood had a great day that saved a couple pars
  20. After a week full of 79-80’s, finally had a nice one over today, and of course my buddy had to beat me by one…
  21. That green looks like a roller coaster. im a big drive guy in my circle of old farts, and to get to 300, you need a few things to happen. First a true masher, then a downhill, or a hard and dry. Or, be young with a sweet swing… a good day with the driver and I avg 257. And that will include a few true bombs. pros average another 50 yards… goodness!
