  2. I play one of their 3 woods. I'll echo what some others have said; it's a great club with exceptional distance. Sometimes I wonder why I even keep a driver in the bag. Something I don't know if others have mentioned is the lifetime warranty. One day I teed off with the 3 wood and it felt like a mishit, when I leaned over to pick up my tee and used the club to sort of balance myself the shaft broke off right at the hosel. I was bummed, but when I went to the golf shop where I got it to get the shaft replaced, they told me about the lifetime warrantee and took care of it for free, and it wasn't a cheap shaft.
  3. This time of year is the worst. The weather teases some warm days and then throws some cold/snow/rain/ice. It is also when I feel the most urge to spend money on golf equipment. This year I've replaced my 3 hybrid with a Mizuno MP18 Fli Hi 3 iron. I'm excited about this one as I jumped on the hybrid wagon about 3 years ago and have never been comfortable with it, so going back to an iron I think will be good. Also, this year I am retiring the Ping Hoofer bag I've used for the last 17 seasons. We ride a lot these days, and when I walk I use a push cart now; so I've upgraded to a Ping DLX bag this year. Now if this Iowa weather would just cooperate I could stop spending money on equipment and start spending money on greens fees.
  4. Yeah spin can cause a difference in distance. It sounds like you were both hitting different 3 woods (brands and setups) and since it is two different people's swings it would be hard to say that spin was specifically the culprit in your scenario.
  5. I'm about to, but not for any playability reasons. My parents winter in Arizona and I'm taking a trip out there in January. Instead of buying a travel bag and flying with my actual clubs, I sent my parents an old set of my irons that I used to play. It will be interesting to play golf with really low expectations, no woods, and someone else's putter. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  6. 58 for me. I used to carry a 60, but lost confidence with it and switched up all 3 of my wedges. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  7. The one shot I wish i had more than anything is a 4 iron off the tee that goes dead straight every time no matter how narrow the fairway is. I can hit a 4 iron straight, but I can also hook it into the woods. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  8. Had one of the better rounds of my life last week. Shot a 3 over 74 by going 1 under on the front and 4 over on the back. On the 2nd hole I hooked my driver some 30 yards left of my target into a field of tall grass. Found the ball and somehow stuck a PW 15 feet from the pin. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  9. Shot a 79 Sunday morning. 79 or better is the goal every time I play, but this one felt like it should have been a 74; I must have missed 3 birdie putts inside 10 feet. However, we teed off at 6:30 am and played 18 holes in about 3 hours and it was an unusually cool August morning so that was good. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  10. I'm a huge Jordan Spieth fan, but the US Open is my favorite tournament every year. It's Fathers Day weekend so I get to watch golf all day Sunday without any fuss. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  11. Solid round for me, still trying to dial in my new irons. Only the 4th round with my new Nike Vapor Pros. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  12. Jason in Iowa Currently game a 2015 Scotty Cameron Golo 5 My preference would be the black two ball. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  13. I play Clevelands RTX 2.0 50* and RTX 3.0 54* & 58*. I demoed the Vokey SM6s as well. I didn't see a big difference between the two, but I've played Clevelands for a long time so went with them. They are good wedges. Look and feel is really good and they produce a lot of spin when needed. Just go demo some different brands and find something where the look and feel gives you confidence.

  14. I shaved 1.5 inches off my driver and only added about 1 swing weights worth of weight back to the club head. I gained distance. Because everything just looks and feels better to me I can swing confidently and hit the sweet spot with ease. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
