  4. Dan, Annapolis MD. Driver, std length SS: Avg 108mph. Srixon Z Star XV No previous experience of Snell.
  5. I like it BlacknGold! Delving in to the murky depths of what's true and what's not! Q: So was it a Nike Ball, made by Bridgestone, or a Bridgestone ball badged with a swoosh? And what's the difference? Did Nike own the design and Bridgestone just put it together?
  6. JLucks: That's the point of the "Proof level"... 100% means True. 0% means unfounded or proved false, in-between is maybe...Remove stick from posterior and chill.
  7. Now Tigers back at the top and launching some zillion dollar irons, what do we really know about "tour equipment" We've all heard the rumors, some have been proven, some still linger without any proof one way or another. So what are the best rumors out there that have a hint of truth behind them? EG. Tiger never played a Nike ball, they were always made by someone else. Proof level 100% Recently proven in an interview where Tiger stated that Bridgestone have been making his balls for decades. Tigers irons are really Miuria - seemed plausible given he never played a stock offering from anyone. Proof level 50:50 Phil really plays a Titleist ball, rebadged. Proof level 20%, a clumsy thick "titlist" shaped sharply marker at last years Pebble Beach or somewhere is not proof. More likely a trial for foresomes at Ryder cup and getting used to different ball. Rory/DJ/Day don't use Twist face or Injected face, just marked up to look that way. Proof 50:50, because of a radio interview where one of them may have said something about not knowing if it made a difference. DJ can act, proof level 0%, we've seen the TM commercials and he's more wooden than a hickory shafted persimmon headed driver! Phil used a "3 wood" with 9º loft to avoid USGA rules on COR in drivers Proof level, 0% but it's a good thought.... The K-Sig was a Callaway SR2 or Taylor-made Tour Preferred rebadged overrun. Any MSGers know the inside scoop on the ball they made a legend? You get the idea...

  9. 1. Dan, Maryland USA 2. 10.2 108mph 3. Titleist TS2 9º, Tensei Blue AV S 4. I think the 9º Flash with the Tensei blue AV 65g S would suit better, but happy to try and report on either.
  10. 1. Dan. MD, USA 2. Marmot Pants (over golf pants/shorts) , Sunice longsleve, Mizuno 3/4 sleeve top. 3. Worst rain you've ever played in: A monumental armageddon-esq rain storm at Lighthouse Sound GC in Ocean City MD, it filled my waterproof shoes from in the inside out!! The only thing missing were the 4 horsemen of the apocalypse rinding down the fairway. We had everything else. 85º to 60º in 5 mins, flash flooding rendering cart paths unnavigable, wooden tees marking ball location got washed away and quarter sized hail, and back to 85º within 2 hours!!
  11. Thanks, the shaft I ended up in was the Project x LZ 6.0, I was told that I could go for the X-stiff, but if ever I played 36 in a day (which has been known to happen!!) I'd be better with the stiff! I tried the KBS Tours, Lite 110's, Nippon Modus 120's that I recall plus a couple of other Project X variants.
  12. I just came back from a CC fitting at their MD location, the experience was well worth the fee (Full bag fitting). Started by warming up, then baselining my irons then moved on to a head that generically suited my game, I hit that head with 5 different shafts until it was clear that there was a preferred option. I then started hitting different heads that suited me with the preferred shaft. One thing I did that I'd recommend, I occasionally switched back to my gamer to ensure that my swing wasn't just loosening up etc. The data pack was very good. See attached for an example of my 6i. This is probably the set up I'm going for. The Mizuno 919 forged. As much as I liked the MP18SC looks, the numbers below were better for spin and peak height, even though I hit the MP18SC further, my spin on a 6i was 4700, so way too low. A similar process was done with my Driver (advice was to keep what I have) , changing up my 3w and made a hosel adjustment to my 3h. He then checked and adjusted my wedges to ensure proper gapping (he bent one for me that was 2º of stated loft. We then went on to a session in the SAM put lab, which showed that I was a tendency to have a touch too much shaft lean, resulting in a strike a little high. A small set up adjustment was made, but putter stayed the same. They will offer shaft pureing, some folks like it, some say with modern shafts it's a waste of $. Titleist, for example don't subscribe to it at all, in fact I was astonished that they were so vocal in their disdain for it and it's lack of value. I opted just to take the specs and shop the product elsewhere. All in all, a good experience, well worth the time, and the Jan offer of 1/2 price on the full bag makes it worth while. Good luck and enjoy it! Dan
