  1. First off I would like to thank Mygolfspy and DST for this opportunity to review for them both. My initial reaction when getting picked was a little shock and a lot of excitement. A little about me: I am a 4.5 handicap, though streaky with work schedule and family life. The strengths of my game would be my ability to get off the tee and mentally strong choices on the course. Though I consider myself a decent iron player I still hit 3-4 fat shots a round and feel that costs me the most. That would be why I was so excited to get picked for this review. My typical ball flight is a nice high draw, but I can work the ball either way. If I miss hit with the driver it's a block to the right, with irons it is fat/chunked/ugly. I currently only use alignment rods for a training aid, if they even count as that. Other than tees on the putting green making gates and my phone for videoing myself. My swing speed is 105mph with the driver, never have had my iron speed measured but have always played a stiff shaft in them. My tempo is smooth with a quick acceleration on the down swing. My blocks come from getting to quick at the top. My only swing thought is ¾ swing, keeps me from getting to quick and keeps everything in check. I have been playing for a little over 8 years, I played for 5 years and then started playing again after 12 years. I started playing golf my freshman year of highschool, competing in hs golf as well as some local jr tour events. My game developed quickly and being the natural competitor that I am the game just suited me. My father and I played often, when we weren't fishing in bass tournaments or hunting. I began working for a golf shop during my summer between sophomore and junior hs years. My kind of golf depends on the situation. I like to go out with buddies, play and have fun. But I also like to win, so it's an even balance of grip it & rip it, throwing caution to the wind. Then there is the meticulous picking the course apart, looking at the shot after this to plan this shot, side of me. Whats in my bag: I play a Titleist 913D2 9.5° set to 10.25°, an older Taylor made 5 wood, Titleist 910 hybrid 19 degree set to 20.5, Titleist 704cb 4-Pw, ping wedges 51° & 57°, and a ping b60 putter. I choose my driver after hitting a few of my friends sticks and fell in love with it. The 5 wood was a choice I made years ago, never being able to hit a 3 wood off the deck I have used a 5 wood since. The hybrid I found in the used bin at Edwin watts, had the same shaft as my driver so I hit it and liked it. My irons I bought when I started playing again and just enjoy them. My wedges were ones a friend had and I hit so I bought them off of him. He didn't like them I flat out love them. The putter choice has been a hard one, but I finally have got in a groove with the b60. I play in Northeast Florida, lucky to have alot of golf courses to choose from. Being i worked on golf clubs, I love to tinker. None of my clubs are set to standard. Part 1 initial response: I had just gotten off my last night shift for the month and was asleep when the FedEx driver knocked at the door. Not expecting them to show up yet I was a little surprised. Dst does a great job packing their product. All the clubs were in individual plastic bags. Bubble wrapped in the box. I was shocked at how much bend is in the shafts. It is very different looking down at. The grips are high quality velvet's. They are very well assembled clubs and I have spent a few swings with them on the range. I plan on putting them through their paces this week more. The curve in the wedge shaft is unreal The alignment mark. The grips are very nice. Sent from my Z987 using MyGolfSpy mobile app

  7. Under 4ft I stare at the hole the entire time. Past that I look at the hole following my line back and then stare at a spot 1 inch in front of the ball to start it online. Sent from my Z987 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  8. I'm using the new Titleist DT trusoft as well. Getting great results out of it. Having to club down from distance gained. Feels great with the putter and around the green. Approach shots stopping hard and even a little spin back. Sent from my Z987 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
