  1. THERE'S A SUCKER BORN EVERY MINUTE, AND P T BARNUM WASN'T EVEN TALKING ABOUT GOLF.

I PLAY A MIXED BAG OF CLUBS=CALLAWAY OCTANE TOUR 9.5 DRIVER, CALLAWAY OCTANE TOUR 15 DEGREE AND 18 DEGREE WOODS. MIZUNO MP25 IRONS 3-PW PLUS 54 AND 58 DEGREE TITLEIST WEDGES. PUTTER IS A BOBBY JONES CALLAWAY, ABOUT 20 + YEARS OLD. ALL OF THIS IS IN AN OLD TOUR BAG WITH A TOPFLITE LOGO ON THE SIDE. I AM A MEMBER OF ABACOA GOLF CLUB IN JUPITER, FLORIDA.
  4. First name and home town JOEL---PALM BEAch gardens, florida - age 80 Handicap current index USGA 8.4 Current irons/shafts -Mizuno MP25, Nippon pro R flex Custom Fit – yes or yes, 1.75" long, 3 deg flat. grips tour wrap I play 5 rounds / week and would love to see if these irons are the equal of or better than what I am using. I got the MP25 irons last September
  5. I HAd a set of mizuno mp25s built for me in september using the nippon pro 90. I have used this shaft in my previous Mizuno mp68s and find it fits an older player great. I am 80 years old and maintain an index 0f 7.5 according to the USGA as of 12/15/15. I pay golf 5 days a week here in south florida and am able to still play reasonably well although my distances have shrunk. My MP25- 7 iron flies 150 yards, where it went 170 just about 5 or 6 years ago. Must be the fault of those cheap golf balls .
  6. TAYLORMADE EXECS SHOULD BE DELIGHTED.. AS WELL AS JOHNSON PLAYED GOLF, IT HAS ALL BEEN OVERRIDDEN BY HIS DRUG ABUSE AND ALL AROUND BAD BEHAVIOR. HE HAS HAD A REPUTATION FOR BEING "A PARTY ANIMAL" SINCE HE FIRST MOVED TO OUR AREA-(JUPITER/TEQUESTA FLORIDA). HIS PERSONAL LIFE IS HIS BUSINESS ONLY AS LONG AS IT IS QUIET AND PERSONAL, BUT WHEN HIS DRUG USE AND OTHER QUESTIONABLE BEHAVIOR BECOMES PUBLIC KNOWLEDGE AND THE TOPIC OF CONVERSATION, IT REFLECTS ON HIS SPONSORS--- THE s*** HITS THE FAN...EVEN IN TODAY'S WORLD OF NO MORALS, NO CODES, IT STILL ISN'T UNIVERSALLY ACCEPTED TO HAVE A KNOCKED UP GIRLFRIEND, AND BE A COKEHEAD. IF ADIDAS WANTS HIM AS A REPRESENTATIVE OF THEIR PRODUCTS, HE HAD BETTER CLEAN UP HIS ACT FAST.
  7. If I were a witness to this and there was only one perp, I would show him that a golf club can be inserted anally, butt first. If there were more I would summon help to perform the same action on all of them. I mean this literally, a club up the ass is what they deserve.
  8. THE NEW GUYS LOOK GOOD, BUT BE PREPARED FOR SOME FEMINAZI COMMENTARY, 'CAUSE THERE ARE NO SHEMALES...................
  9. I WOULD BE COMPLETELY HAPPY TO USE ALL TITLEIST OR ALL MIZUNO EQUIPMENT.. IT IS MY OPINION, AND I HAVE PLAYED THIS SILLY GAME FOR 70+ YEARS, THAT THOSE TWO COMPANIES CONSISTENTLY MAKE THE BEST STUFF. TAYLORMADE AND CALLAWAY ARE IN THE RUNNING SOMETIMES, BUT THEY BOTH TREND TO MAKE WHATEVER THEY CAN HYPE THE LOUDEST--MANY TIMES WITH NOTHING TO BACK UP THE BOGUS CLAIMS. THEIR ADVERTISING IS LIKE TWO JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL BOYS BRAGGING ABOUT THE SIZE OF THEIR PRIVATE PARTS. "MINES BIGGER THAN YOURS"
  10. i am 78 y/o and play to usga index 7. so i have played lot of different clubs in my 70 years of golf. I now own Mizuno MP 68 with Nippon Pro 90 shafts R flex. The feel, feedback and performance is better than any club I have ever played. My skills are not as sharp as they once were, but these irons give me the very best chance to hit good shots, even at my age and skill level. In the hands of a young strong low handicapper they should be fabulous.
  11. sounds exactly like everything i have heard about phil m. the man is THE class of the PGA. others should copy his behavior.....No i will not name names, but i think you may be able to guess.
  12. WHEN THE BOBBY JONES SHIRT LINE APPEARED 25 YEARS AGO IT WAS A PREMIUM PRODUCT IN ALL RESPECTS.. FINE FABRICS, EXCELLENT SEWING AND STYLING, MADE IN ITALY. THE MOST RECENT SHIRTS FROM BJ THAT I SAW WERE THE USUAL RUN OF THE MILL DEPT STORE STUFF, MADE IN CHINA AND AS USUAL FOR NAME BRANDS-OVERPRICED. I WONDER WHAT THE 25TH ANNIVERSARY SHIRTS WILL BE LIKE....AS ORIGINAL OR THE USUAL CRAP FROM THE ORIENT.
  13. I don't quite agree with your 7 iron to reach theory.Many of today's par 4's are designed to be played with a long or mid iron second shot. With many 470 yd + par 4's even from the second set of tees, only monsters will be hitting 7's into the green. Assume a decent player drives 240 yds that still leaves 230 to the green center.I don't know any players including the Tour guys that hit 7's that far. 500 yard long par 4's are becoming rather common place and "normal humans" need to hit fairway woods and hybrids to most of them. I am 78 y/o GHIN index 5.3 and find that from the second set of tees---6700 yds, that I require a whole lot more than 7 to reach several of the par 4's.As an old fart, I may have gotten shorter off the tee but I can still hold my own with 99% of the guys I see playing at any age.
  14. after playing golf for almost 70 years, and still breaking 80 regularly-3 times a week usually, I find damned little ,if any difference in golf balls. My ability to strike the ball hard may have eroded but I still can spin the short iron shots enough to make even Pinnacles and Top Flites stop on the greens and even back up on softer greens, The south Florida course that I play 5 times a week has firm and fast conditions almost all year. It softens in the summer rainy season. The distance with the driver or long irons is so marginally different with different balls that I play whatever I find or whatever is on sale somewhere. I think the main difference in balls is the advertising and as 90% of players are not as skillful as I am, when they think the ball makes a difference in their play is purely in their minds./ Sorry Titleist, Taylormade and the rest. Golf ball performance is as standardized and measurable as shaft flex...All makers have their own standards and the public is just foolish to take their "facts: as gospel.
