  1. I'm in my mid 70's now and my USGA index at the end of last year was 8.6. The guy who has been doing my club fitting for a number of years suggested I look into the XXIO X line of clubs...They say they're designed for guys on the back nine of life but can still play a bit. Has anyone here had experience with those clubs and how were they? Jim
  2. I tried the Super Stroke grips last fall and liked them alot. soft and a bit tacky. Jim
  3. Ping G410 Driver, Ping G425 fairways (2), Ping G425 Hybrids (2) and Ping G 710 irons 6-gap. Cleveland RTX 56 and 60 degree wedges Scotty Cameron Special Select Newport II putter Will probably keep that set intact for the 2022 season
  4. Woops, I did find the Sun Mountain in the review. If you are using it, how do you like it?? Jim
  5. In my mid 70's with 2 knee replacement and 1 hip replacement. So I'm now a cart rider when I play. I have been using the Ping Pioneer bag for a while now and like it and it's features. However I am disappointed in how quickly it has worn. The strap pass thur areas look terrible and I can't seem to get the bag clean. So, I'm looking to replace in in 2022 and like the Sun Mountain C-130. I checked the Most Wanted article on cart bags and noticed the Sun Mountain was not included. (why??) Has anyone used that bag and is so how do you like it? Jim the retired Golf Course Superintendent
  6. I did order the Ping G 710 irons from the same retailer in August and the arrived late October. I have been using Pine Oaks Golf Course, Joe and Leigh's pro shop for a number of years. The are one of the top two or three green grass retailers in the country, so they do have a bit of clout with the manufacturers. Jim
  7. I was fitted for a Ping G425 on Feb. 25 and the retailer didn't have the specific shaft that worked the best for me. I told him to go ahead and order the club and I would continue to use the G400 in my bag until it came. The shop just called me today and told me it would be there on March 17. (maybe with the luck of the Irish!!) So roughly 3 weeks wait on the driver. Most likely if I was fit for one of the more common shafts (the Alta or Mitsubishi Tensei AV) I would have taken a driver home that day. But the best fit for me on the launch monitor was the Aldila Rogue White 130 MSI 70. (slightly longer but significantly better dispersion. Good luck and I think the G425 is a winner!! Jim the retired Golf Course Superintendent
  8. If guitar playing had a handicap like golf, I'd probably be in the 20's...But I really love playing them! I'm 72 and finally started to take lessons. Jim
  9. I played the power bilt scotch blades back in that era...Died and went to heaven when I finally got a set of Ping eye irons...First round I missed a 5 iron and it still made it to the green...never looked back! I do have a MacGregor M1W persimmon driver (Keyhole insert). Once a year I'll take it to the range so I can better appreciate the technology of today's modern clubs!! Jim
  10. Oh yes!! I'm on my 2nd Ping Pioneer bag...wore out the first one!!
  11. Just thought I'd put up a couple of the Masters from some of my trips there. Last year I finally got to bring my wife! Sure am missing the tournament, especially since we're sheltered in place at home Jim
  12. I'd love to be a tester for this product. I'm currently using a Nikon Coolshot 40i. and am not thrilled with it. Jim, the retired GC Super

    I'm looking for recommendations for the best method/program/app for keeping your golf stats. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Jim
  14. I won the 2010 Senior Club Championship with a set of Iron Wood hybrids in the bag. I'm currently using the Exotics EXS 3, 4, & 5 Hybrids. I plan on trying their EXS Driver as soon as the weather breaks here in New England.
  15. I'd love to test the New Ping G410 Driver 1. Jim, the retired GC Super, Plainville, MA 2. GHIN 7.7 3. Swing speed 95 4. Ping G400
