    Peaksy68 reacted to GolfSpy SAM in Argolf Putter and Wedge Reviews   
    You know, that's a great question, and unfortunately, I don't have any more info than the website gives. When I was fit into the Indi's, I was fit into their ATK in 52-60, as my attack angle is steeper and that's their bounce/grind for a steeper player, and so far I haven't had any issues adjusting to these, even if the front edge does seem sharper.  I'm certainly capable of sticking it into the ground with ANY wedge, but I definitely haven't felt overly penalized in any way with the Argolf wedges, so take that for what it's worth 🙂

    Got to play Texas Rangers Golf Club today. Was great temperature being in the low 60’s but had 20mph winds with gust up to 30mph. I also think someone might have pissed of who cut the holes this morning cause they were pretty tough 🤣. Was able to shoot 79 with a few mental errors that cost a few strokes. But despite that I feel like I played better than the score was. Hopefully my ball striking keeps trending in the right direction.

    Pretty solid round apart from a couple blemishes. 7 over with a lost ball triple and 3 x putts, 2 of which were very poor.  Putted very well over the last several holes and played some very good pitch/chips. Been a while since I've played to my handicap

    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.

    Sunny, low 50s, wet, and windy day (15-20MPH) today.   My regulars bailed on me so I headed to one of the local muni's to walk 9.
    This was pretty much how the steady wind was blowing.
     
    Fairways had standing water and were pretty soggy, but a fun day overall.

     
    Probably my last round before the final review of the Sacks Parente putter gets posted and it performed pretty well;  i gained strokes against a PGA pro level.  
    3 FW, 3 GIR, 13 Putts    38 (+3)
    Even though I hit only 3 fairways,  I didn't miss any by very much and was never in a position where I couldn't go for the green.  I am struggling with lost distance due to weather and ailment.   I was at MGS HQ the other day and hit some drivers and have lost about 7 MPH swing speed with the driver.  Even though I missed most of the green,  ball contact was pretty good.  Short game wasn't great but the putter made up for it and made putts after the chip shot.

    Lots of changes going on for me. Firstly in September I changed golf clubs after 20 years as a member at my old one.  Then the week before Christmas I handed in my resignation after almost 19 years at my current workplace.  Almost feel like I need to reintroduce myself to the forum too, haven't spent a lot of time here lately.
    I'm enjoying my new club, course isn't as good but condition is excellent and the people are great.  Saturday rounds coming in under 4 hours (compared to 4.45) is also a big improvement. Get to practice hitting my own balls off grass too which is a great change for me.
    Not exactly sure what I'll do work wise. I've got more than 6 months leave getting paid out so I've got some time to decide. Probably pick up some locum work where there's some good golf courses nearby.  Looking forward to the next phase and hopefully get to play more golf.
