  1. PXG has places in my bag, but I wouldn’t pay the $400-500 they initially charged for clubs. Whether Parson’s is making money or not is sort of Parson’s problem or not and he seems to still be happy doing what he’s doing. One thing Titleist, Ping, Callaway and others need to get fixed is their supply chain issues. While organizations like PXG and Tour Edge have figured out how to get a custom club in your hand in 7-10 days, the big three often take months. I’m guessing those that can actually get clubs in players hands will probably do better financially long term. We shouldn’t forget that $200 iron you buy might actually cost $40-50 to produce, so lots of upside room on the incremental club sale. Most of the cost to produce a club for most companies is the cost of R&D and marketing.
  2. Let’s see: Titleist, Tour Edge, XXIO, PXG, Cleveland and Cameron..so 6
  3. This is sort of just a personal preference thing, but right now I’m liking Titleist Tour Soft.
  4. I’ve felt your driver pain. Finally went to Club Champion and was amazed how much using such a service could do. Was hitting a Titleist TS1 because I thought my slower swing speed dictated that head with an Air Speeder shaft. Guy put me in a Tsi4 with a 9 degree head, versus the 10.5 (have no problem getting ball up) I was playing using my same shaft and picked up 10+ yards. Head a little smaller than the other TSi heads, weight is moved forward that dramatically reduces spin and while the 4 is supposed to not be as forgiving as other heads, I found dispersion pattern best with the 4. I would have never considered the 4 just using the Titleist website describe who that head was best suited for. I thought fitting was a little voodoo (mainly because previous fittings were manufacturer oriented) but this made me a believer that there are clubs that fit you better than others and it may not always be obvious.
  5. I’ve got a little of everything in my bag, Titleist, XXIO, PXG, Cleveland, but one of the clubs I absolutely love is a Tour Exotics C721 strong 3. Hot face and when I really need to get it in the fairway this is my go to club off the tee. Think Tour Exotics is an overlooked brand for fairways.
  6. I purchased a Tour Edge 5 wood for some reason and started hitting it and found it great. Hit out of fairway bunkers, not a problem. Less than great lie, not a problem. Was playing Titleist off the tee and strong 3, but liked the Tour Edge 5 so much that I got the C721 in a strong 3, added an inch to stock shaft length and absolutely love this club. I use this club off the tee a lot and only lose 5-10 yards, but routinely find the fairway and believe it or not usually hit the ball off the deck on the tee instead of putting a tee under it. I know Tour Edge is not on everyone’s top of mind, but take a look as you try things out. They are making some very nice clubs now and you can usually get a club customized directly from them in 3-4 days and their price is right compared to big names which take forever to get if you customize anything.

  9. Idiots that think they are JB Holmes was a second choice, but I think some courses tend to setup the courses up for 10-20 players that have the skills to play them as set and the run of the mill club players take too much time and strokes trying to play these courses. Golf is supposed to be “fun” but multiple 3 putts tends to diminish that. Our greens are setup so ridiculous that if you get in the wrong spot on the green your shot after your first putt will be chipping back on the green...don’t see the point in that setup. If you go to Scotland and don’t play the big name courses you will be expected to play 18 in about 3:15 walking. Of courses these courses were not built as real estate developments where it’s a 1/4 mile between greens and tee boxes. Bottom line is that country clubs will not address slow play for fear of offending members and many of those playing public/semi-private feel it is their “right” to play as slow as they want for the green fee they paid.

  11. Keith, North Carolina Footjoy we are +20 in rain for the past year, so last 3 months of play...wet, wet, wet, cold, wet. Many times no place for relief from what they now call temporary water
  12. Keith North Carolina 15 G700, regular recoil shaft I'd like to try the I210, same regular recoil shaft

  14. Bought a sleeve of these balls from our pro shop just to see what the were about. Ball has a great feel and seems to sit down well when spun. The ball is 5-10 yards longer than ProV. The only downside I've seen in 36 holes is the finish doesn't seem extremely durable...not bad but seems to become a little dull. Bought a dozen based on experience and the only thing I don't like is the price. Don't know what Tiitleist long term plan is for this ball.
