    Peaksy68 got a reaction from MickNairny in Hands Down #1 Bucket List Golf Course   
    I’ve played my 2 top bucket list courses 3 times each, Royal Melbourne West and Cape Wickham, so my next bucket list would have to be The Old Course. I’ve walked around it( on a Sunday) and raked a bunker. My daughter is spending 6 months in Scotland this year and I’m planning a Europe trip so might be a chance.

    I am playing that course (hint: it’s the “home of golf”) in just a bit more than four months.

    Thought I'd start a new thread for this year. Same spreadsheet is linked here https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1P9-C6rS1vIO44rYbPDqQgLlTxGxYQtsQHAs31t1j_sU/edit#gid=1292641992
     
    Ticked off a couple in my first round for the year, a couple of lip outs kept the tally to two.

    My back up back lives at my in-laws holiday apartment.
    I'll be taking a few recently replaced clubs next time I go to fill out the bag.
     
    Driver - Nickent 4DX with Grafalloy Epic
    3 and 5 Woods - TM Burner 08 with Grafalloy Epic
    4 Hybrid - TM Rescue 09 with Grafalloy Epic
    5-E (couldn't resist) Ben Hogan Apex Edge Pro with Hogan Apex 4 
    50,54,58 Wedges - Cleveland CG15 Black Pearl Wedges
    Putter - Ram Zebra 
    Sun Mountain Sync Bag
     
    The top end of the bag will be "new" for my back up bag, and are all clubs that I know I can use, unlike most of the clubs that they are replacing.

    There really needs to be an option for “I don’t know because I haven’t hit any of them yet” Going purely off looks is meaningless. Also, what shaft options are available. Without a fitting, even online it’s really a guessing game. I get the excitement around new releases but if it doesn’t perform better than what’s in the bag it won’t be purchased.

    ... I have said many times I am envious of those that don't care about looks and sound/feel, just performance. While I don't care about the sole (which is usually all you see in Ads) my clubs need to look good at address. For those that love a flat mat look the new Dark Speed is an attention getter and since I am old school and prefer a plain gloss black crown the Qi10 certainly got my attention. But no doubt worthless without a fitting.

    They are available for fittings right now fwiw. Shop I was in today had them all out Cobra. I definitely know which would be my contender.
    Also all the MGS release articles go over stock shafts and they are available to view on the websites of each OEM.

    9 over playing off 7. Solid start then threw away a few shots by swinging when I knew I wasn’t ready. A couple of good birdies on tough holes got things going again before a very poor double to finish. Light drizzle for all but the last couple of holes was a bit annoying but didn’t have much impact on the round. Guys I played with were great to play with, fun round
