  1. Think about single length for the long irons - simplifies these clubs. SL's exactly match TOTAL CLUB MOI so you have the same feel as a 7 iron. Ask Bryson.
  2. A long shaft in wedges just sounded like as bad idea, but the single length concept is founded on good science. I play normal stepped length clubs LW through 8 iron, then single length 7, 6, 5, 4. Works great - same shout irons and wedges with simplified long irons. No, I don't loose distance or height on the long irons: science tells you that the heavier club head offsets the effect of shorter shaft.
  3. Look at Nevr Looz golf bag. The club head clips keep the top aligned and the a thick polymer sheet aligns the grip end. Also, this design prevents club heads banging together.
  4. Golf club companies are in the business of selling clubs: consider the possibility their recommendations may be influenced by corporate greed. I stick with my old friends - same wedges as several years ago, BUT I use a groove tool to dress the groove edges. The tool does NOT change groove depth or contour, it sharpens the edges. Since I don't play for a million dollars every weekend, I am not concerned about minor groove work.

  7. received my Kirkland 3 layer balls - marked “performance +”. Label says “made in China. Paid $15 per doz including tax and shipping. Played 18 with the new model - GREAT BALL. Conditions - temp low to mid 60's, wind 10 to 15mph. On the practice green, ball would check on 10 yard chips, nice feel off the putter and useful alignment line. Full shots - soft feel off the club face, wind produced expected effect on ball flight - nothing like suggested in pod cast. Driver distance just fine. Short irons and wedges checked nicely. 8 iron tee shot stopped dead ( 3 inches ) where it hit on

  9. Bruce: live in Oklahoma - golf season is underway, handicap 10, favorite ball- Kirkland Signature. A head to head test would be informative. I prefer a high spin ball . Practice 5 - 10 hours per week. Practice facility features sand bunkers, chipping green, and large putting green. Play 5 different courses. Profession - research engineer; I know how to collect data, record data on site, and write reports.

  11. 1. Equipment - golf balls, Snell, and Kirkland: Nevr Looz bag. I do not buy big name golf equipment - overpriced and full of marketing hype. I doubt the big names have ANY engineering technical staff. 2. No chanes, but confirmation of my suspicions about equipment. 3. Practice leading to improved ball striking did most for my scores, but once you hut the ball solidly, then the Snell and Kirkland balls help. 4. The Nevr Looz golf bag is a very good design - keeps clubs available and organized.
  12. Bruce living in Oklahoma I am a rider - knee doctor said ride or I'll be back for replacements Currently using a Nevr Looz bag
  13. Hi, this is the long putter guy from the previous post. As I said, I still use the long putter and have not tried other methods because none of the current putters show improvement, design and creativity. The 370 g head will be great because long putters are also heavy. Looking to try this one. Bruce from Oklahoma
  14. Ringo is a great name: follow the beat of this putter drum. Putter design and construction sound promising. I still use a long putter and have not yet found a replacement. Perhaps this is it.
