  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. 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. 

  5. 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. 

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

    Drawing a straight line on a curved surface can be harder than one might think, yet many golfers continue to employ the  "Sharpie method" if for no other reason than it takes little effort and there's a clear absence of viable alternatives.  With that, Golfballs.com spawned the idea of Align XL, a custom print option that places a straight line 180° around the ball.  It's as simple as it appears and like all of its custom logos, Golfballs.com does everything in-house to maintain certain levels of quality control and fast turn-around times on all custom orders.

    This opportunity is open to any dedicated golfers residing in the US.  We're seeking (6) dedicated individuals to test, review, and keep (1) dozen golf balls of your choice from anything on the Golfballs.com website.  Which is the vast majority of everything on the market!  To apply, reply to this thread with the following information:

    • Name and Location
    • Do you putt using a line?
    • If so, how do you currently draw the line?

    Good luck to all that apply.  Keep your eyes posted on this thread for the testers announcement next week.
