  2. Made a couple switches this year resulting in clubs available. For sale: 1) Evnroll ER7 mallet, 35”, oversized Evnroll factory grip. Standard loft and lie. Works as advertised, I just had to go back to a blade. $180 plus shipping. Retails for $359, so half price. 2) Cobra F8 one length 5-GW stiff shaft (true temper one flighted). Great condition, just need a better bath than I gave them. I’ll wash them before shipping. $400 obo plus shipping ($499 in worse condition on used sites right now). ARCCOS in grips still active. 3) Mizuno T5 wedges, 52 and 56, bounce listed in pictures. Just bought new wedges. This still have lots of groove and grip left, took the worst showing pictures I could. There is a nick in back of 56 degree. White Satin finish. Wedge flex True Temper, standard length and lie. $40 each, or $70 for both. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

  6. This is all really great info! I really appreciate it folks. I may be able to put together two days for golf, but it’s not the sole purpose. Good excuse to go back! As of right now, I’m thinking Troon North-Pinnacle, and heading out for dinner together. I may try and do 36 on that day though, so maybe traveling to another course. I’ve never really travelled out of the Northeast for golf besides one trip to North Carolina. This has ignited a fire to do so, as well as really good conversations with my wife to travel more and include golf in the itinerary. Will have to come after the new baby gets settled of course.

  7. Thanks gaussman1! Yeah, we’re there for six days, and most of it is filled already with non-golf activities (unfortunately). I’ll check out Grayhawk and the others. I did try to find out info on Ping and fittings, tours, etc. I read they have moved fittings offsite to their certified fitter locally. I’m going to take a swing though and email them to see what can be done. Even if it’s just a tour. I did a fitting at Titleist on Manchester Lane, and the tour of their ball research area was great. I like the idea of golf and then my wife can meet me for a nice dinner and sunset. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  8. My wife and I are expecting our second child in July, so we are taking one last big trip for awhile. We decided on Arizona (flying from NY). Opening up discussion here to my trusted advisors: I have one full day to myself (she’ll be at a spa) to golf and go to golf related places. What course should I play? Places to go? PXG? Troon North? TPC? I’ll be alone for the whole day, which I don’t mind. We’ll be splitting time in Sedona and Scottsdale. Thank you in advance! Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  9. I am currently gaming the TEE CBX fairway and really like it. Let’s us know how it works for you. It will work more like a “sub zero” lower spin wood though, from what I’ve experienced. Before the CBX, I used a cobra fairway and it launched plenty high/tons of forgiveness. Cobra has been named numerous times here, so just wanted to add to that list! If you like the Adams hybrid, have you looked at their fairway woods? My favorite 5 wood of all time was a Tight Lies. Total mindless wonder. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  10. The company I used to work for had a factory in Lexington, KY that I took customers to every year. After the factory tour we always made our way to the Buffalo Trace Distillery where they make some of the best bourbon known to man. I was able to secure a bottle of Pappy Van Winkle 18 yr, which was enjoyed over Thanksgiving with my two brothers. They are my closest and best friends, and it was truly a special experience with a special bourbon. I mixed the Pappy name with my last name: Roylance. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  11. MCaseyM, I really enjoyed the detailed, and long term, review. Thank you for sticking with things and keeping us updated. I would like to enter the hybrid giveaway! I am located in Albany, NY. I’ll send you confirmation of donation directly. Thanks again!! Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  12. Went to a Titleist fitting in September and tried the TS2 and TS3. Rapidly disqualified the TS2 as it had too much spin for my swing. Went into TS3, the closed the face using the surefit hosel, changed the weight to draw, and I was hitting beautiful baby draws for the first time in my life! I was actually about to tear up right there on the range. I’m in a Nike VR Pro driver with Nunchuck shaft right now with 108 swing speed. After the Titleist rep laughed at my driver and shaft, they put me in an evenflow white x-stiff (6.5) because of my quick tempo. I was able to slow down to almost 100 mph, and hit it the same distance as my current driver except with much better consistency. I view that as a win for me and Titleist with the TS3 and that shaft. I’m going to save up for it and try to find one gently used next spring. It delivered on their message/hype. Also had an Epic driver at one point, and I prefer the TS3 sound/hosel capability/ and weight system. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  13. Just bought a used CBX and gained 11 yards on my Cobra Fly-Z 3W. It's legit. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
