  1. I would take a close look at the Edison Wedges. Terry Koehler, aka “The Wedge Guy”, has been designing wedges for us mere mortals forever. His specific grind and design should make it much easier for you to choose and use.
  2. I had a melanoma the size of a quarter on my head. I don’t care what I look like. I wear buckets and wide brim hats with spf 50 protection everywhere.
  3. I’ve never hit a bad shot into a net. I also never did any client fittings indoors. I need to see the ball flight in addition to the data. Anecdotally, I retired from clubfitting 8 years ago. I went to get personally fit at Club Champions. Indoors. I was not at all happy with the irons that were specked out after playing with them for 2 months. Wound up going back and they remade them with different shafts. Better, but still not right. Never again will I do an indoor fitting.
  4. Aldila NVS. Not much has come close since.
  5. I tried it with very disappointing results. It came back with the exact Driver/Shaft I was gaming. So basically, I paid for nothing. When I wrote to ask about this anomaly I was told “Aren’t you glad it affirms what you are using?” Um, no, I tried it because I can’t hit it worth s***. It affirmed nothing. PS, went to a Ping G425 max with excellent results. Thanks for nothing TGF.
  6. There are ZERO standards in golf shafts. One manufacturers regular could be another manufacturers stiff. Felt OK is a recipe for disaster. Unless you are properly fit by a reputable club fitter, you will get more disasters. Just a question of what magnitude.
  7. Ken Palm Springs, CA i used to walk regularly until I injured my back. Tried a Sun Mountain push cart but it still aggravated my back when pushing it uphills. This seems like a great opportunity to allow me to walk again!
  8. Club Champion is going to make you happy. That’s what professional fitters do. If there’s an issue with the shafts being too light, then they’ll put you into a heavier shaft. That said, the question still remains as to why the fitting seemed fine but reality shows otherwise. One significant factor that occurs in situations like this is the fact that you were fit indoors. Many, not all, but a high enough percentage of individuals swing differently indoors. I’ve seen it hundreds of times. That’s why I used to only fit outdoors. You have your “natural” swing in that environment AND you can actually see the ball flight. You sound like one that would benefit from an outdoor fitting. IMHO.
  9. Ken California Handicap 21 Callaway Big Bertha 4-5-6 hybrids Easy to hit
  10. Easy one for me. If I make a par, it’s usually if I managed to one putt. I use this name for all the golf sites I go to as it was always available!
  11. Iron length has little correlation to your height and is more predicated on your wrist to floor measurement as arm length varies on everyone. I had a guy who was well over 6’3” tall but his arms were so long, he needed 1” shorter! The irons mat very well be the proper length BUT it sounds like the lie angles were left alone. Adding the inch changes the specs enough so that could be the reason you’re hitting them fat. Get them checked first, see if it makes a difference. If not, your fitter blew it.
  12. I still use either a 5 or 7 wood but have replaced my 4-6 irons with hybrids. Works for me.
  13. Not my style, not my price point. To each his own.
  14. Cobra makes a great starter set, excellent quality. Pretty sure it’s available LH.
  15. I tried their app for a driver when I was starting to lose my love for my gamer. It came back with the exact setup I was playing! When I contacted them to complain I was told I should be happy that their software affirmed my setup as the best. PS, I’ve moved on rather quickly to a different driver/shaft. Waste of money.
  16. I’m gaming their 3 wood. Perfect amount of forgiveness and equally awesome to tee off with on tighter holes. Big fan.
  17. I found a 3 pack of Cabrera leather gloves at Costco for 14.99. Unbelievable value! Great glove.
