    Mizuno jox919 hot metal “PRO”

    Yep. Perfectly. You summed it up much more concisely than I did. Are you and editor by profession

    Mizuno jox919 hot metal “PRO”

    The line that stands says it best about the lineup is a quote from Chris Voshall. The Brand Manager for Mizuno Golf NA and a heavy background in Mizuno R&D. "If we were to only make one iron, it would be the JPX 919 Forged" So basically that says it's the best of everything in the JPX lineup, considering measureables. Feel, forgiveness and distance. It's not as long as the Hot Metal or HM Pro, but a bit longer and more forgiving than the Tour. Ranked from easiest to hit to most demanding looks like this. Hot Metal Hot Metal Pro Forged Tour Then in the MP lineup. MP18 MB MPCB MPSC MMC And from what I understand the MMC even being the least demanding of the MP series, is still more demanding than the JPX Tour. A bit more on the HM Pro slotting. It is designed for the player that likes all the HM has to offer in terms of fast ball speed due to construction but wanted a slightly smaller head profile with slightly less offset. Hope that helps some.
  3. I 1000% agree with this. I don't get where all the hype is coming from. I do remember liking the original Chrome Soft, but certainly not the latest additions of it or CSX.

    Waldorf Astoria Golf Club & Others in the Area

    What date are you looking to play on your free day? I will be down there March 9 to 13. We are playing on March 11 at Grand Cypress New Course, our Assistant Super just played there last week and said it's phenomenal and a must play. We have two spots left I think, as right now it's just me and our Super. We will most likely be playing Sunday the 10th at Reunion Resort, where we are staying as well. So we may have spots then too. The invite goes to any of your Orlando/Tampa area guys who are interested.

    Slow Play Survey

    So much this! it's meant to be our enjoyment, and if we let things out of our control such as weather, pace of play, even our own play dictate getting upset, then to me that defeats the purpose of playing. Do i wish I could shoot 75 each time out instead of 95 or 100....you bet. And while those high scores might not make me jump for joy, I haven't quit yet after shooting one. And I don't necessarily want to play a round in 2.5 hours. To me that's too fast and there's no way you can be enjoying the day, the weather and the company if you're racing around the course. If @MDGolfHacker is still around and see's this post, he can tell you about a round we played at Maryland National about 10 years ago with a Brit who walked on and joined us on the 10th tee. We had just finished a very nice front 9, with pretty good scores and enjoyed the pace. Well he was bound and determined to finish the back nine in about an hour, and while he was walking and we were in carts, it was all we could do to keep up with him, we were sprinting from the cart to our shots, and finally after about 3 holes, we told him to go ahead without us. So a round would have to be extremely long, like well over 5 hours for it to really bother me. If it's slow during the round, I use that time to chat with my playing partner, or just relax and enjoy the weather.

    Slow Play Survey

    I get what your saying. But a sincere question I would ask you is, that time commitment that kept you from playing. Was it the difference between 4.5 to 5.0 hours vs 4.0. Or was it even the 4 hours would have been too much? It's funny whenever I go play on a weekend, SWMBO is fine with it, the only thing she cares about is what time will I be home. She honestly doesn't care how long, she just wants to be able to plan around it. So if I have say a 10:00 AM tee time, I calculate in my head the following...4.5 hours for play, 1 hour to hang out, 20 to 45 minute drive home depending on where I'm playing. So lets round up to 6.5 hours. So I'll say, I'll be home around 3:30 or so. She will without fail, respond by saying....OK I'll see you at 4:30. I haven't asked here whether she's counting on a longer round or three more beers Oh for the record, it's about 50/50 between her being correct and me being correct.

    Big Wins for Team Srixon Over the Weekend

    it's not the balls fault But that was excruciating to watch at times wasn't it?

    Slow Play Survey

    .FWIW I didn't complete the survey, as there are a couple fields where I don't see an answer I agree with, and it is required to be filled out. Perhaps one additional option for each, I think things are fine or I don't see a problem here option. I am one who isn't jumping on the mob mentality of slow play is killing the game. Is it an issue, sure at certain times on certain courses. But I have yet to have one person decline an invitation for a round of golf by saying, "No it takes too long" Even on some of our slowest rounds, I have heard minor griping during it, but have only heard on very rare occasions, someone say they will never go to XYZ course again because it took too long. edit: Saw the additonal fields added, and now was able to complete!! Looking forward to seeing the results.
  9. I alternate between ProV, ZStar and Bridgestone RX all season. But to me the best ball nobody is playing is Oncore Elixr. I would play it almost exclusively if I wasn't getting the others so cheap. When I do play the ProV this year, I will be playing the yellow!
  10. With JB Holmes highlighting it, Srixon had a big day on Sunday with 3 worldwide wins. Here's the Srixon Equipment for each of them. Note they all had the new Srixon Z-Star ball in play. J.B. Holmes – PGA TOUR – Genesis Open – Pacific Palisades, CA (5th PGATOUR win) What’s in J.B.’s Bag: · Srixon Z U85 Utility Iron (20º) o Alternates this utility with an 18º depending on the course setup. · Srixon Z 785 Irons (4-PW) · Cleveland RTX 4 (50º MID, 54º MID, 60º LOW) · Srixon Z-STAR XV o On a day that got more and more difficult as the wind wreaked havoc on players ability to control their distances, J.B. leaned on the stability and consistency of his Z-STAR XV and hit the shots he needed to coming down the stretch. Ryan Fox – European Tour – ISPS HANDA World Super 6 Perth – Perth, Australia. (1st European Tour win) What’s in Ryan’s Bag: · Srixon Z 785 Driver (10.5º) o Known as one of the longest player on the European Tour, this was just Ryan’s second week of competition with the new Z 785 driver. · Srixon Z U85 Utility Iron (20º) · Srixon Z 785 Irons (4-PW) · Cleveland RTX 4 (50º MID, 54º MID, 60º MID) · Srixon Z-STAR XV Miguel Angel-Jimenez – Champions Tour – Chubb Classic – Naples, Florida (7th Champions Tour win) What’s in Miguel’s Bag: · Srixon Z-STAR

    Travel Bag Suggestions (and more)

    Solid choice. It'll last you a long time.

    How'd you play?

    Had my first two good looks of the "season" at birdie on Friday in an 11 hole round. Missed both. Hit the ball decently for about 5 or 6 holes then seemed to lose my swing all together. But it was just nice to be out playing.

    2019 Most Wanted Driver PXG 0811X/0811XF

    I'm anxious to see which one wins. But pretty sure nmbers 1 through 5 will most likely see a place in my bag at some point
