  1. Jim Fort Huachuca, AZ TaylorMade SIM 10.5* (turned to 9.75*) with Ventus Black 7X +2 114mph TSi3
  2. Handicap and Location? +2, Fort Huachuca, AZ Current Irons and 8-iron distance? Titleist 716 AP2 with Project X 6.5. 8 iron is my 170y club What do you know about Sub70? I know that it is a direct to consumer club manufacturer.
  3. We have a similar par5 here at a course I play. The tee shot requires a straight shot of about 200y that leave over 340y left or you can hit a high cut out to 270y and still have 270y left. Nothing quite like hitting a 3 iron or 5w off of a par5.
  4. I was supposed to take the weekend off to spend time with my wife, but she said that I should play since this coming weekend is booked with helping a neighbor move (remind me to hide my truck in the future), and then traveling around SE Arizona since we are restricted to a 60 mile travel limit by the installation Commanding General. Glad I went out to play because it was a good scoring weekend, even with the wind. We had about 15-25mph winds on Saturday and Sunday. The winds didn't hit till the back 9 on Saturday since we teed off early, but Sunday was a noon tee time, so we played in t
  5. Location and HC: Sierra Vista, AZ, +2 Current line method: Two parallel lines in blue with the ball model logo in between (making three lines) Ball choice and personalization: TaylorMade TP5 with blue Align XL and JBC initials in the middle
  6. I was lucky and got to play twice. The first round was on a course that I am familiar course and would call my home course. Went out in 35 (-1) after opening the round with a double, which I wasn't too upset about. I then birdied two of the first three holes on the back and thought that I was on a role. Then came the 13th and 15th hole where I made bogey from less than 100y. Talk about stellar play. I was a bit frustrated and unleashed on a drive on 16, 17, and 18. Ended up having a greenside pitch on 16 that finished about 4 feet, then a 2 footer on 17 after pitching from 40y. Making
  7. If you are looking at doing any more building, look into a good 30 inch belt sander for shaft prep. Harbor Freight usually has good prices. Also, for cleaning out the inside of the hosels, you can find a metal bristle brush used for cleaning gun barrels, usually 9mm, .40, or 10mm will work well. You can put that into a drill and run it into the hosel and it should help clean the excess expoxy from the hosel. Also, use acetone or denatured alcohol to clean out the epoxy dust. Let that dry completely. Shims, glass shafting beads, tungsten powder, or lead powder is a good addition to epoxy
  8. How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score? I took my first lessons in Phoenix, AZ when I was 5 years old (1980), then gave up the game when my parents divorced. I ended up picking up the game again when I was 12 and living in Glendale, AZ. I practically lived on the golf course until I was 16 and moved to Las Vegas, where golf wasn't as junior friendly and much more expensive. I recently moved down to SE Arizona due to a military assignment. I am currently scratch and can shoot around par or better. I get to play once or twice a week. What do

  10. James Lacey, WA but moving to Sierra Vista, AZ in a month. Currently use a Pinseeker 1600 (non-slip version). I have been very careful with it to avoid knocking it out of alignment.
  11. Jim, Washington Current Drive specs Titleist 915D3, 9.5*, Aldila Rogue MSI 115 70g X-Stiff, 45" +1.6, 114-118mph verified on various golf simulators are golf shops in the Tacoma area. I have never played a Tour Edge driver.
  12. Diamana BF TX80 fairway wood shaft with Titleist tip. Tipped 1" and measures 41 5/8". Gripped with a black Superstroke grip. Asking $150 shipped OBO
  13. I definitely would use the Big Shot Tuned Golf version. Need all the help I can get.
  14. Jim Stationed in South Korea (US Army) Handicap: +.8 Current ball: Callaway Chrome Soft X I am a high spin player. Had to swap from the Pro V1 lines because I was spinning the ball way too much. Kept working on trying to rwduce spin through swing technique but it never worked out. Swapped between a Srixon, Bridgestone, and finally settled with Callaway. Sent from my SM-G930K using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  15. I have played both of those shafts. I liked them both. The pype was stout, but it played very well for me. I think I was playing the 70X. I also played the F7M2 in X and it was in the bag for over 2 years until the tip broke. It has been a search to find a proper replacement. The odd thing is that I normally like the 70g category of shafts but this 60g works pretty well. I usually have to be very aware of the transition with most 60g shafts, but this shaft doesn't seem to care too much.
  16. Has anybody ever taken an older model driver and shafted it with a more up to date shaft and it seems like it just works? I have been hitting a 913D3 with a 70X Diaman Ahina. I ended up acquiring a Rogue MSI 110 60X with the RIP I/O tip. I put it in an old SLDR 430 10.5* that has been laying around. I took it out for a spin on the course today and was pleasantly surprised. I ended up hitting it really well. I might end up putting this back in the bag. I seem to spin it a bit less and hit it further and just as straight (which is a plus).
  17. What is funny is to watch all of the butt hurt by others when people make jokes about this event. Everybody is acting as if he is never going to play golf again because of this. While he was playing extremely good golf lately, it doesn't make up for all of the other crap he has pulled with other tour wives and also his well known drug use. I know that I am not perfect, but integrity is a huge thing with me.
  18. Thanks. I'm in. Sent from my SM-G930K using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  19. Your Handicap: 1 Your State/Province: Active Duty US Army stationed in Daegu, South Korea Your Swing Speed & Average Carry Distance: 118mph and 285-290y Your Preference (F7 or F7+) F7+
  20. The tough part that I have is that if I am a better player with a higher swing speed, most of the time I will have to pay more for a real deal shaft versus the watered down "made for" type that fits the average player. When paying the now regular price of $500 for stock shafted drivers. I guess this is the reason why I hit a 913D3 still.
  21. No kidding. I think this is a bunch of saber rattling. It comes down to the fact that there isn't anything up there to sustain, and the crazy guy wants to try to move his level of importance up a few notches. If he does decide to do something like launch a nuke, at least I won't be feeling too much.
  22. Now that winter is over and Spring has started, I will become more jealous every morning that I am doing PT. The KNs who get to use the golf course are out there every morning. I usually only get to play on Saturday. It is better than be stationed in Kuwait though. I will commend the Koreans on their etiquette when it comes time to play. They will practice for years on the driving range before stepping foot on the #1 tee box. I also enjoy watching the local Korean Golf Channel. They has some interesting matches for show but primarily focus on the KLPGA. These girls can flat out pla
