  1. Especially just because some bag manufacturers put 15 slots. Amen
  2. Honestly, I don't really look at my bag for long, as I'm taking and replacing my club, and I'm focusing on the shot at hand. I don't see the USGA changing their 14 club rule anytime soon.
  3. Personally, I think it would look worse with a bag over a club. Would stick out like a sore thumb. Just put your extra clubs in your trunk or keep them at home. You could put alignment sticks in there, or a ball retriever in there. I know of a golf selfie stick that's out now to film your shots with could also be put in there. Or aesthetically set the bag up to be balanced and the empty spot is in the middle for one of the rows.
  4. Next steps to my road to improvement

    Current

    •  Adding the Mizuno MMC FliHi 4 iron to the bag once it comes it to replace my hybrid. The hybrid has too significant of a draw bias, not terrible, but I also draw the ball naturally already, and will probably go in and out of the bag, but I'm looking for better shot shaping with the FliHi and have that 210 to 225 distance into the green and off of the tee.
    • Working on my putting. I'm rolling the ball nicely now with a slightly open stance with my current putter. I have another putter that I can get the ball rolling online, but the pace is off. Future step is to actually get fit for a putter.
    • Working on my natural tempo and swing speed for the driver to have more consistent drives. See below for more info.

    Next

    • Driver shaft optimization. Not looking for a new head yet. I like my 2017 M1 460. Interested in the journey of testing some shafts. Right now my shaft is determining what kind of shot I can do. Slower speed and tempo than my natural speed and tempo. This has lead to a great deal of inconsistency of trying to find the "magic speed and tempo" and I know that isn't the way to go.
    • Swing speed training. I'll have multiple shafts at this point so I can game whatever is best fitting me as I go along. And I can always swing a little slower or club down to hit a fairway.

    Future

    • Get fitted for a putter > get fitted for a driver/shaft and woods from a high level, reputable company willing to discuss numbers and takes the time and right approach. Open to custom shafts and not just from the OEM cart like at a Golf Galaxy. I have only been fitted to a driver once, but didn't purchase as I did not like the experience, small selection of shafts, and I wasn't swinging my natural speed and tempo like I should have.

     

     

  5. Awesome, thank you, everybody. I've been digging and doing my research, and analyzing my own swing. I read a lot of information and experiences from many sources and have learned that I am struggling with my driver shaft with consistency (trying to find the right tempo and clubhead speed optimal to my current driver shaft, which is harder than getting a shaft to match your natural swing) because my natural tendency is to have an aggressive tempo and that also cranks up the speed. So the three main factors I think that I need to experiment with is a stiffer shaft to an x, and/or bump my weight
  6. Thanks guys. Yeah, I don't intend to buy blind. Want to look, educate, and make a decision down the road. I probably research way too much, but I like to be careful and not waste money. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  7. Just curious to scope the web and see prices on driver shafts. Might want to change my driver shaft up a bit. When I really go after one, I feel like I lose the stability and get poor strikes most often. I'm tired of swinging slower and safer, ready to take the next step and poke some out there like I know I can [emoji23] Any suggestions? Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  8. That might be a good thing to consider if going higher than a 4 in the future to get that extra help with launch. [emoji106] Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using MyGolfSpy mobile app

    The Srixons also are meant to blend. Another fine line. I feel like they are a sharp set. 985 > 785 > 585 The 585s I think would be more forgiving than the MP-18 MMC, but not as forgiving as the Hot Metal. That is just a guess by what I've experienced with them. The 575s were very popular and very good performance. The looks of the MP-18 line won me over. Go with what you also love the look of and that you're confident in. You could look at a used blended set of of the last year's line for cheaper even. I've started to see blended MP-18 sets surface now too. Sent from my Pixe
  10. Appreciate the insight! Will go FliHi in the 4! Oh no another question. Does your 2 iron have the C Taper Lite? That comes standard with them? I actually have the C Taper Lite shafts for my iron set. Perfect combo so far. Very pleased with it. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  11. I'll jump on an indoor simulator a few times this winter and focus on my driver, woods, and long irons. Also dial in distances with wedges and irons. Fades, draws, choking up, partial swings. Want to figure these averages out to give me the best opportunity to score. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using MyGolfSpy mobile app

    Combo sets

    The MP-18 line is designed to blend. Blade > SC > MMC > MMC FliHi. I have blades from PW-8, SC from 7-4 but I'm updating it likely to SC 7-6, MMC 5 and MMC FliHi in the 4. Just to add that added forgiveness and help with launch to the higher end of the bag. Great irons. And the JPX 919 line is a more forgiving and modern line. Tour > Forged > Hot Metal Depending on your ball striking, you could blend all three, the Tour from like PW-8, Forged 7-6, and Hot Metal 5-4 would probably be a good overall blend. You can just have the lofts bent to provide even gaps. The JPX lin
  13. I have a 3w and 5w. Was hitting both really well at the beginning of the year off of the tee. I hit my 3w 260 and 5w 240. Works out nicely when playing the back tees and avoiding bunkers/trouble. Mostly go exclusively to them when hitting my driver poorly and want to find the fairway. Need to work on both off the deck.

  14. Yeah totally understand. Just an interesting outlier. Appreciate the opinion on the FliHi. I think it will really help.
  15. I've been able to open the face and get a tiny little fade sometimes, or tame down the draw, but if I want to hit a draw it can take off on me. Is the 818 h2 less closed at address than most hybrids? I know most hybrids are closed, including mine. Cobra King F7. I'm putting my hosel all the way down to the 3iron loft, which opens the club face a few degrees and see what that does. Looking forward to the 4 HiFli!

  16. Well to be fair, those numbers are just measurements and not biased. It could be an error, or it could be correct But I believe the SCs are most likely easier to hit as well. Regardless, there isn't much difference between the blades and SCs anyways. Those numbers reported would indicate it would be easier to hit the SCs if the miss was more toe or heel which I imagine is the most common misses for better players, because of more MOI/bigger sweet spot horizontally, but would be slightly harder than the blade to hit if you are a shallower swinger, and less compression because the ACOG is highe
  17. I've hit the 900 tours and 900 hot metals. I couldn't tell the difference between the tours and SC's in the feel. I hit my buddy's 919 forged last weekend and it's a lot bigger and more forgiving than the SC. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  18. The 919 tours and forged look grrat The. mygolfspy JPX line up write up indicates that the Tours are close in forgiveness to the MMCs. If you look at the MPF numbers for 6 irons that follows that statement with 900s at least. Very close. They actually rank the SCs harder to play than the blades because the actual vertical center of gravity is really high. MOI was higher though. Playability for Mizunos went SCs > blades > 900 Tours > MMC > 900 forged > FliHi > 900 Hot Metal Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  19. Nice. When I hit everything perfect, my driver is 275-290, 3W off the tee 260, 5W off the tee 240 (I struggle with my woods off the deck so that's why I'm also intrigued by driving irons), 3/4 hybrid 220 (but I don't like how hybrids tend to over draw). Would like the 4 to be more workable than the hybrid. Just have been inconsistent too much with the 4 SC. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  20. Thanks! Seems like I'll go FliHi for the 4 and maybe even the MMC for the 5. We'll see after this weekend. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  21. Awesome insight, thanks! What does your iron set up look like? I'm considering a 2 driving iron as well. Have never tried a driving iron but I am drawn to it's flight. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  22. Thanks for the quick reply! What makes you come to that conclusion? Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  23. I'm looking into possibly updating my 4 iron from MP-18 SC to the MMC FliHi or the JPX 919 Hot Metal. Haven't found a direct comparison. Curious how they differ. I looked at the MPF numbers for the FliHi and 900 Hot Metal, (919 line MPF numbers not out yet) and it shows that the Hot Metal is more forgiving and more playable. I imagine the 900 and 919 are fairly similar in these numbers. Anybody test these head-to-head or have any additional insight? Thanks! Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using MyGolfSpy mobile app
