  1. Donald/Goodyear AZ/USA Odyssey 2 ball Fang Tyne 3, This and the Tomcat 14 seems to be the shape that the pros are going to, I guess the Tyne 3 looks like I can pick the ball up with it's club shape, not seeing that with the Tomcat, and I'm an old (older?) guy so...
  2. Probably the shaft. Or just maybe, you could smoothly swing a choked up 410 6 iron. Choking up will result in similar shaft length. No expectations with the copper, lots of expectation with your current gamer. I know the lofts are different and the lofts for the 6 copper and 7 410 are probably similar, but still think you should redo and hit the 6 for both.
  3. So here I am 26 years after I was gifted an 11 degree Big Bertha Warbird. It replaced my wooden driver and it felt a lot different. While many clubs since then have come and gone, that one has made every move in the intervening years. Yesterday, decided to take it out after 20 years and hit it. It was replaced so many years ago because I hooked it. Not anymore. I didn't try it on every hole, but all but one was dead straight and that one was a little baby draw. So here's the scoop. I used TP5 and Chrome Softs. My gamer right now is an 9 degree Epic. Given that it has a longer shaft and better technology, it was no surprise the Epic was roughly 20 yards longer except for one that was 40 yards and I thought I hit both well. Gust of wind, sprinkler head? who knows? The trajectory on the Warbird was a little flatter but it still hit a pretty good window. The other surprising thing was it was virtually silent. No loud crack when hitting the ball. And boy is that clubhead small with virtually no feel whatsoever. Still, I can see me once or twice a month moving up a tee and whacking that baby around the course. Now, if I can just find the guy to whom I sold those ping eye 2 clubs. New shafts and who knows?

  4. Donald/ Phoenix, AZ 8 Callaway Steelheads
  5. 8, Phoenix AZ Callaway Steelheads, 140 Just what I have read here. I play 4-6 times per week, trust me, they will get a workout.
  6. Donald/ Phoenix AZ Sky caddie Touch and Bushnell Laser (15 year old hunting laser not specific to golf) Sky caddie Touch and Bushnell Laser (15 year old hunting laser not specific to golf) Also the course I play most regularly has new golf carts with GPS technology. Not sure the brand.
  7. Donald/Phoenix AZ Have an indoor putting mat with ball return. Putt off and on during commercials. Mat extends to 18 ft. 0-2. Played the same greens for 15+ years so... I lag pretty well. Stats about ones stroke. I have a mallet putter and think I am straight back and through. Good to see if that is correct. I also change grips to left hand low in close so would be interested to see if the stroke stays the same as far as timing and path.
  8. Having had both, my preference is an albatross. I have seen plenty of lucky holes in one, and there probably are lucky albatrosses, but at least one shot of an albatross has to be pretty good.
  9. I carried until I was 50. Then for ten years I pushed. Now for the last seven I use a remote control motorized cart. I have converted a lot of the older guys I play with, all except the cheap ones that is. My wife uses a motorized cart that follows her. Not ready to go there yet. Have fun pushing.
  10. I also look at the ball except for short putts when I look at the hole. No need to come up out of a long putt from longer range but so many people come up on the shorter ones and tend to miss then. I also change from a standard putting grip to reverse overlap in close. I have never tried looking at the putter. Not sure how that would affect distance control. Since you look at the ball for long swings it would seem to help consistency to do the same for putting.
  11. For the past few years I used my 58. However, this year I have attempted to divide yardages up among my three Vokey wedges and my putter from 10 - 70 yards. From 70 yards and longer, I use full swings, choking up for intermediate yardage. It is a work in progress but my short game is improving. I think Tom Kite was the first person to catalog different swing lengths with different wedges to dial in his short game. My short game is slowly improving.
  12. Donald/Phoenix 8 Callaway X2 Hot 3 and 4 hybrid I am a low ball hitter so needed clubs that will help get the ball in the air. Yes, the X2 Hot hybrids are old and they hook a bit, but what works is what works. Wouldn't mind testing something that works better though.

  14. Howdy Since 1981. I normally shoot in the 70's with an occasional foray into the low 80's. Being outside and attempting to master more shots. Equipment reviews and general golf news. I get most of my clubs from the Callaway pre-owned site. Currently Epic woods and Steelhead irons. Vokey wedges. Phoenix area, live in a retired community. Best thing is ability to walk in the winter. Golf all year. There are no bad things about golf in AZ other than the expense in the winter during the snowbird season. NOTHING! Retired Beak was my call sign in the Marines. Bryce was a 3d computer program I learned while teaching computers.
