  1. Rick, Reading, MA 95-100 mph Titleist TSi2 Graphite Design DI-6, stiff Yes, Modus 105 (stiff) in my last 2 iron sets
  2. thecameroncollector.com will also have a lot of useful information.
  3. The most important trait of a great Club Pro is that YOUR game and club experience is the most important thing to him. If he can play, all the better, but not that important.
  4. This one is tough for me. At 65, I play to an index of 0.9. Taken out of context, this doesn't reflect the length of course I normally play which is about 6400-6600 yards. At this length, I can get around pretty well. When forced to move back to 6800-7000 yards and compete with the young guys at the same handicap, I am at a distinct disadvantage. The young guys typically hit the driver 25-40 yards past me. That means not only are they that much closer to the green after the tee shot, but they also hit 1-2 clubs less from the same distance. Pretty hard to compete in this situation, the odds are drastically in favor of the young guys......
  5. It varied between 8-10 yards.
  6. Love mine, picked up 5 MPH of ball speed and dropped the spin to 1900-2000RPM!
  7. I find that I picked up 5 MPH of ball speed going from a TS2 to a TSi2. Using the shaft from the TS2 in the TSi2 for a true comparison. The TS2 is a 9.5° and the TSi2 is 9.0°. Launch angle went from 13° to 14° and spin rate came down from 2100 RPM to near 1950 RPM. Definitely an upgrade!
  8. You could order him a couple of SM8 Vokeys with Fubuki MV IR shafts in either 48 or 55 grams. These are stock options for Titleist this year.
  9. Not an AVX fan. I tested them before the release and have tried them since. I just prefer the higher ball flight of the ProV1x.

    While my normal ball is the ProV1x, this is the ball that my wife plays. So, it becomes the ball we play in alternate shot events. I find the feel to be pretty nice. It ends up being almost a full club longer off the irons than the ProV1x. I think this is mainly due to the lower spin rate of the ball. It doesn't stop as fast on the greens, so I find I just play one less club. I feels good off the putter and the driver seems to be about the same length, just lacking a bit of workability. All in all, a great ball for the money.
  11. I would start with the lessons. Your Pro can fix a lot of swing issues for far less than the cost of new clubs. Once the swing is consistent, go get properly fitted for your new clubs.
  12. Rick Reading, MA / Orlando, FL Titleist TS2 0.9 Index 100 mph TSi3 preferred
  13. I use a TS3 23 degree as a 3/4 iron replacement. I find that you can hit it out of pretty much anything; fairway, fairway bunker or rough. I also use it off a tee on shorter (345-360 yard) par 4s.
