  1. ... Yea I am stuck on this one too Bens. I have a little free cash but a Nigerian Prince is gonna make me a millionaire as soon as I can figure out how to send him my money so he can buy a Money Order. So when my Million Dollars arrive I will jump at the chance to ignore teachings that are "our wrong" and use some of the money to learn "stuff that will leave you wondering why" because it almost sounds too good to be true.
  2. ... I am not surprised as I think the F8 is the best all around driver Cobra has produced. Newer drivers can reduce spin, change trajectory and can add a little distance but the F8 and Fly Z are still the most consistent Cobra drivers I have played. Gave my F8 to my son and he won't even demo another driver. It's important to remember for many that a reduction in spin is not always a good thing. Sure high speed players will benefit but the correct combination of spin, trajectory and swing speed have to be matched to maximize driving performance. When I went from my Xtreme to the Sim I picked u
  3. ... Have a smooth and rhythmic swing. Practice the short game until it is a strength. I can make a birdie after a bad drive. I can make a birdie after a bad iron shot. But I can't make a birdie after a bad pitch/chip/putt.
  4. ... It has been great to get back to feeling confident with my swing on the golf course. Had a very nice start to my round today with winds about calm to about 5 mph and I had 4 birdies with 1 bogie. Then the wind picked up quickly on #9 to about 20+mph and things got difficult as it was a swirling hard to judge wind. It's one thing to start with those kinds of winds an another to be playing well and have it suddenly appear after 8 holes. At least that is my excuse.
  5. ... Some crazy irony as I teamed up in a match between twosomes with a guy that just turned 70 and he was playing an older Cobra and a stock 60gm R flex shaft. On the back 9 I had been driving the ball well most of the day with my Sim, he told me he also had a Sim and showed it to me with the stickers still on it. I asked why wasn't he hitting it and he said he just bought it this morning and wanted to try it at the range first. He was a little worried it had a 50gm senior shaft in it and didn't know how it would react. I said "Well, LOL you aren't driving it very well with what your using so
  6. ... In honor of Hideki Matsuyama winning the Masters, I played my Srixon Z Forged MB's today and shot a 72 with 3 birdies and 3 bogies. As many of you know I am a big fan of playing the most forgiving irons you can effectively play and for me, Z Forged ain't them. I would guess there were at least 3 or 4 shots that most likely made a difference in my score, but specifically 2 I can relate. There is a 477 yd par 5 dogleg left that is uphill off the tee and has a huge bunker guarding the corner that I cannot carry from my normal tees. But they are giving that tee box a rest and have the Silvers
  7. Compressing The Ball (revisited) ... This will be a quick one as it is a follow up to a Tip I already posted. When strolling through golf stores I constantly see golfers pick up an iron and take a little swing to just past impact. I am amazed at how many actually lean back a little and make a move like they will lift the ball in the air instead of staying down with a forward shaft lean and compressing the golf ball. Again there are plenty of successful players that basically pick the ball off the turf, barely brushing the grass. I have seen players flip their wrists through impact with a
  8. ... Being old school I actually prefer the shiny chrome. And the badge serves a purpose so I rally don't care how it looks. Like many others I love a very clean look on an iron but I would compare it to my underwear. As much as I love a certain look and style I don't see them so comfort is my main concern and I would wear purple Barney panties if they were the most comfortable. If my irons look great at address and perform for me, that is my only concern. A clean cavity is just icing on the cake but so very rare in 2021.
  9. ... After playing them almost 4 months now, I wanted to do a quick follow up on my King Tour Irons. These irons just kept getting better and better. I think we all know Players Irons are almost just a matter of preference as they are all very, very good. As much as I enjoyed the smaller headed T100-S, and I enjoyed them very much, the MIM Tours are just the perfect size for me eye. Thin toppling, very little offset and a mid size head that gives me the best combination of forgiveness and playability. I posted elsewhere I shot a 67, one year under my age and the MIM's were responsible for 5 bir
  10. ... Well I have had 4 months of mediocre, out right bad and some occasionally pretty decent golf but only 3 total at par or under out of about 100 rounds. That said, I think I am finally figuring out desert golf and the conditions have improved quite a bit. Greens are rolling much better and I actually have some confidence in my reads now. What has been hardpan around the greens has grown in with just enough wiry Bermuda grass to miss a chip/pitch by 1/16th of an inch and not bounce into the ball. Today was one of those days where everything was working and I only had one bad shot when I hit a
  11. ... It seems every location has trade offs. It comes down to which negatives you can live with. Crazy high taxes and earthquakes in CA, high humidity and hurricanes in FL, cold and snow anywhere north and the insane heat of dead summer in Phoenix. For me, the dry heat of a few summer months is the trade off I am willing to make.
  12. ... Wedges have gotten stronger lofted and it can cause gapping issues. One of the things I love about my T100-S is the 48* "gap wedge" which I found myself using more often than I would have thought. But it meant removing a club at the other end of my bag. So I decided to try and fill the gap created by my King MIM 45* with one wedge instead of 2 and picked up a 50* King wedge to replace my T100-S 48* and my Vokey 52* wedge. It will create an 8* gap between my 50* MIM and my 58* Mizuno T-20 but I rarely used my 52* for full shots preferring to hit partial shots with my 45* pw. I also now
  13. ... My 19* DHY is one of the few clubs in my bag that is not replaceable. Glad it is working out for you!
  14. ... I have made some golfing friends here in Phoenix but since I play 6 times a week I still play about 70% of my rounds as a single. Almost always have good playing pards but my luck ran out yesterday. First some lady from KC in her 70's found out I was from Chicago and wanted to talk politics ... sigh. Told her I wasn't interested in a political discussion on a golf course in 100* heat but that didn't stop her so I avoided being near her as much as possible. But the killer was a s-l-o-w golfer that was THAT GUY. Every decent shot he hit he screamed stuff like "That is a perfect shot!" or "Sh
  15. .., I do love the King irons as well as the T100-S irons. I really only wanted a driver shaft fitting but thought I might as well go through the irons while I was there. The last thing I need is another set of irons but that has never stopped me in the past.
