  1. If you're going from older woods, 2015-2013 or before, I'd try a newer head of more loft for sure. I've seen posts in various boards stating that 'things haven't changed much for fairway woods' but I'd disagree. My opinion and experience with this, be honest with yourself about your swing tendencies and seek some fitting help for the right head and shaft combo, you could find that due to launch conditions, a 16.5 or 17 head is flying longer/higher/smash'd better than a 15 or 13.5. It's a unicorn hunt / dark art to find a 3w that one really owns. It will transform your game as you'll be attacking rather than guarding when that club is in your hands. I went thru something similar and ditched a club that was sporadic good for me. LOL got on in two at 18 at Pebble with it once with it, but I felt I should be hitting something more consistently. I found the latest Srixon ZX 15 3W with a black Smoke handcrafted was the ticket, off the deck and off the tee, this is a monster... I went 15* 3w 18* 5w, the 5w is one of my favorite clubs in the bag for its versatility and amount of trust I have in it. Try as many head/shaft combinations as you can and don't lock yourself to one manufacturer...I'm glad that on a whim I tried that Srixon at a local demo day, for me, it was night and day difference to others I had tried, 3 shots and I knew this was it...
  2. I'm going with a *20/*21 7W!!!! Went back to an 18* 5W after playing 18* hybrid for many years and kicking myself for not having done it sooner. The 5w is a beast, hzrdus t1000 shaft I can play any shot that I want, high low fade draw...Looking to cover the gap between my 18 5W (230) and 23* 4i(205). 21* 7w with a stout shaft !!!
  3. My father-in-law and I also played this course in Houston, http://www.guswortham.org/ Gus Wortham, just after they completed a renovation. It was a lot of fun too
  4. I've been playing some golf in Houston area for a few years, visiting over memorial day: Golf Club of Houston, Tournament course, reminds me a bit of the inland Spyglass holes, always in great condition Meadowbrook farms in Katy, decent Greg Norman track Cypress Lakes, played it a few times, fun course very good conditions as well Memorial Park, have not played it after the renovation but the old layout was ok The TPC course at the Woodlands, it was OK, decent track, enjoyed I've just played two courses in Dallas over July 4th, hope to maybe play a few more: TPC at Las Colinas Cottonwood Private course Both were in excellent condition and a decent, fun challenge, I enjoyed the practice facility at the TPC
  5. I tried to use a two line stencil that I could put over the arrow on the ball, it confused me more and made feel like I "had to" line up the ball so perfectly to make my line. too much stress focused on the lines rather than the putt itself. I was averaging 32-33 putts this way...I've always putted with the the logo pointing to the line and when I went back to that, it freed me up in the 10-15' range, I felt I relied more on my read and my feel to square the blade and make a stroke to the line I was seeing/feeling. I'm averaging 28-31 this way. Perhaps some dedicated practice on this method with the lines might eliminate the anxiety of being lined up 'correctly' or a different type of line pattern might help, but I also noticed that I was slow AF on the greens lining it up. I hate to play tournaments with guys that change their ball like 20 different times on a 5' putt because their lines aren't right...40 second clock ticking...
  6. This sounds interesting! I've played with "tour issued" drivers that have been open since the days of the Cleveland Comp. Consequently, when those clubs fatigued, (Cleveland Comp 3.5* open, R9 Supertri was 3* open, Burner Superfast 2* open) I have yet to find anything in the current crop of drivers that can match these, and consequently my driving hasn't been as consistent. SIM and SIM2, close but heel biased, lead up the wazoo to get them to open... TSI3 close but no dice. The ideal for me would be close to the option #2, 9.75, open lie at 57 and 3.5 open....man I'd rule the world!!
