  1. Have played most brands on the market: Ping, Callaway, Wilson Staff, Taylormade, Mizuno, Adams and finally settled on Titleist clubs a number of years ago. This is my current setup as of yesterday with the addition of my new driver. It is also about getting the correct shafts during your fitting. My driver is a monster. Driver - Titleist TSi3 10.75* Fujikura Speeder 661 TR S Fairway - Titleist TSi2F 16.5* Fujikura Motore Tour 84 Speeder Hybrid - Titleist 816h1 18* Fujikura Motore Speeder 8.8 HD Hybrid - Titleist 818h 21* Fujikura Motore Speeder 8.8 HD Irons - Titleist T300 5-53W True Temper AMT Red 107g-95gm R300 Wedges - Vokey SM7 58.12D Nippon NS Pro 950 GH R Putter - Scotty Cameron Select Newport 2 Notchback 2016 35"
  2. Would love to be a tester of the new T300 clubs. I love my current T300s but love to see what the next generation has to offer for us seniors.
  3. Correction on that fairway, it is a TSi2, not a 3.....and am actually getting more yardage with the 16.5* then I did with my 917f 15*, and with better accuracy, using same shaft.
  4. That was until my new driver came in today. Titleist TSi3, Fujikura Speeder 661 TR S shaft. The shaft that I ordered was no longer in stock and I had to settle for this one. This is of course a much better shaft. Cannot wait to hit it tomorrow. I was using a head that the dealer I bought the club from on my old Fujikura shaft until my new one was built and arrived. Nice surprise. The world is good.

  6. Found this post to be an interesting read regarding this subject. Guess you can make your own conclusion. Golf has survived many ups and downs, and I think it will still be here when I am dead for those who choose to afford to play this wonderful game. https://linchpinseo.com/trends-in-the-golf-industry/
  7. Found a Dunlop that looks very similar, with the lines and the black insert.
  8. Getting fitted with the right head and shaft combination will help. Personally I like the Fujikura Speeder shafts and with clubhead speed (93mph) and ball speed 132mph and can get max performance for the senior with ball spin 2000. We have my driver (TSI3 set at 10.75). At 75 no way I can keep up with you young long ball hitters but do very well for my age. That is why I went to my fitter and set this up for me, getting maximum height and distance. I can hit it high as well as low when it calls for a low shot with this loft. I play the Prov1, which helps also.
  9. In most cases if it is too good to be true, walk away. I would call customer service for that manufacturer and see if their prototypes do not have serial numbers. Check it out......
  10. You should increase you accuracy. Might affect you distance. I would leave it as it is and just choke up on it when you need to for better control and accuracy. Of course Bryson is a different story, all this irons are the same length. Of late, his accuracy is questionable as his distance control. Just sayin'.
  11. I am sure there were a lot of manufacturers that made that style of putter. Looked online and found TopFLite, McGregor, Spaulding, Wilson and Wilson Staff. Without any markings on it, very tough to identify. Could be clubhead someone made for your grandfather. Very difficult to say. Not as many brands back then as there are today.
  12. I have mine replaced at a shop where I purchase all my equipment and get fit. Have known the owner for thirty years. No mistakes and a lot less hassle.
  13. Agree with most that a 56 degree will serve you best and a 10* bounce will work both out of the sand and fairway. I personally like the Vokey wedges. A 60 degree wedge is difficult to master and takes years. I have been playing since 1985, am 75 and use the wedges that came in my Titleist T300 set up thru the 53 degree wedge, then I use a 58.12d Vokey. It is all about feel and what works and managing your distances. Might add that I was fitted for all my clubs by a Titleist certified fitter.
  14. Looking good. Play what works best. Those mizuno irons are sweet. My latest and yes, brand loyal. All dialed in. Titleist fitters did a good job making this happen. Mr Bob Vokey did the Vokey wedge at a fitting at Pinehurst. Am heading to Pinehurst in early September for a four day Team Titleist Invitational. We will be checking out the new irons as well as other Titleist products. Who knows?

  15. Questions of this nature I always take up with a certified fitter and together we make that decision either on the range or in a fitting booth. I am 75 and still hitting steel and just went with a regular shaft when the Titleist T300 irons came out. Getting the right shaft with the right head and maximum from those is the key. My fitters and that is right, I have two, and both are certified Titleist fitters have told me that graphite has never been an option for me. Both are in high demand and it depends on how quickly I want to get a fitting, of course, being on a range is my first choice. They have never let me down. Both have over 30 years of experience. Just saying. This is a choice that works best for me.
