  1. Ball 1 was well ahead starting with the wedge and ran away with it through the next two. It's as if three isn't even same category of ball. Ball 1 all day every day here. Must be a Bridgestone or Srixon.
  2. As someone about your height exactly but with a 6" wingspan over height differential, I can from 35+ years experience tell u: 1. If u find yourself hitting the ball a bit fat more often than thin it wouldn't hurt to find a choke up length that works well across multiple range sessions. Last thing u should worry about it distance. It is insanely overrated to hit an 8 or a 7 iron 3-5 yds shorter or longer. Precisely why u have several irons to choose from in your bag. IMPORTANT and it will make more difference than most would imagine ....Work in 1/4" or 1/3" rather than 1/2" increments. It correlates better with grooves spacing and hosel to sweet spot relationshipas well. 2. If u find a length that coordinates better with your distance from the ball to hands .... your plane will improve naturally. Your contact will improve beyond comprehension compared to now. Your distance likely will imorove as u will gain in smash which improves ball speed ....which also follows from reduced variation of strike ....which begets accuracy and consistency of said accuracy which begets strokes gained frequency which begets workability which begets better recovery shots which begets and u will be-gets PAID when u kick their hindquarters over and again! I've NEVER lost yardage from any shorter of irons change in as everything improved instantly after roughly 20 swings. Conversely though is driver. Up to 45.75" it improves across the board absent a poor shaft/head setup for me. But that surely can vary as I've driven the ball well with 43.75 up to the 45.75 mentioned. And poorly with each if bad setup. I see zero downside here for you! Just my 35 cents
  3. Thanks for the insight fellas! All I have discovered so far is that Goodwill is a tough sled for decent golf stuff. Closest thing I have found is a like new set of WOMEN'S TOUR EDGE with bag. But not at a steal - they wanted $75 and who knows if anyone would even buy them at $100. However - on the bright side I got a CLICGEAR 3.5+ with cooler bag and seat for $100 flat. Gonna try garage/estate sales tomorrow and see where that gets me. Then I may have to call it a career (4 days). LOL
  4. For the money you can't beat Jones Trouper Most notably if u call them and buy one of their returned bags. I got a true steal on a solid black one and like it plenty. I could buy two PLUS of these for cost of brand new. Although it essentially is
  5. Yeah that is getting worse all the time. Was really hoping to dump things locally as much as possible. These replies don't give me tons of hope of becoming the next 2nd Rock 3balls Bottom Swing Golf
  6. Thanks for the feedback. I too imagine being able to restore/revitalize clubs would help such an endeavor.
  7. I have had some recent positive results with essentially flipping clubs/gear on facebook mrktplc. So kinda thinking of hunting clubs full time and flipping them. So far not much luck at thrift stores (two days in) so I was hoping one or more of you would be able to share some insights on the viability of such an endeavor. And where/how you've successfully found clubs. Thanks
  8. Thank you - a lot to consider. I have decided on TT Lite XL as it seems the most cost effective playable shaft - I'm leery of pulls especially since I haven't done this previously. I bought a 2nd SW so may do that one a couple of times to get the hang of it all first.
  9. Your input is appreciated - PLEASE and THANK YOU! I'm setting out to revamp two old sets of irons: Tommy Armour 845s and Ping Eye2 What is the best resource to (bible so to speak): 1. Know what the hell I'm doing in reshafting and picking right shaft for these models. 2. Reviving the grooves 3. Going through the process correctly (re-shafting and proper tooling) 4. Purchasing reliable pulled shaft models. I imagine having to repeat lan to until I get a shaft model I love (like the old days when I was so great - or so I seem to recall).
  10. Turns out it was a legit club. Just that it was a Women's driver. The seller doesn't play golf so he was clueless.
  11. I have one if u are still looking. Seems u may have gotten one but title says carts plural.
  12. thanks fellas. I was looking to buy it last night and feared it was such a good deal it would never make it to Monday so that I could contact PING. I passed. It just was too shady a deal.
  13. Can someone please share with me if they see anything that indicates NOT GENUINE ARTICLE PING G410 The sheets in the pic are a whole other situation I assume. THANKS!!!
  14. guy selling g410 driver for 200$ is this a legit ping serial #? 325401dp THANKS!!!
  15. Well the crickets on this post sure matches what I've found LOL
  16. Take a roll with the TrueFit online mygolfspy fitting machine gizmo. You never know. Didn't work for me, but I read where some have had success with it. I went from an M1 that I liked a lot and slid into a Cobra F9 and was disappointed up until I tinkered with the settings a bit - then Ka-pow ! It is the best driver I have ever owned and I worship at the alter of my old 983K (which did tell me to let go and move on when I started missing the middle too often) F9, Epic Flash, Ping, M5, TE Exotics EXS 2nd version - should be good options.
  17. Find you a used driver for now. I'd avoid dropping anything over $150 You can find great drivers for $50-$150 all over the place. Just get some idea what shaft you may need. I'd bet a ProjectX 5.5 Red in an M2 would do you quite nicely.
  18. First professional paid fitting ...... not until after I had played golf for over 35 years. Those irons were horrible. So I did it again twice and have hated both those sets also! LOL Prior to that I had four sets and loved all but one of those. Maybe because I played more often and far better then. But the "fit to me" sets haven't worked out all that well for me.
  19. Late to the thread and hope I don't repeat prior responses. If it is a club I plan to "chip" with or rely on for full shots ....... I prefer it be in the mold of my iron set. If it is more pitching or feel shots then I'd prefer it be in the mold of a Wedge i.e. Vokey or Ping Glide But - I generally use a 56* for everything that isn't full, and I don't ever hit it full. So maybe I'm not a great gauge on this one. Ideal set up for me.......PW & GW = iron set shape with max loft at 51 or 52* followed by 2 of the following ......... 54, 56, 58 or 60 which will be in the mold of a true wedge with variations of bounce blended in.
  20. My game is falling apart. Hope someone here has some real time experience with a good instructor in the DFW area and would share name and what you liked about them. I've gone to two already - love one of those but sense a new voice might be helpful. Closer to Fort Worth the better. Thanks
  21. It was here - but I took it down when it sold locally. Thanks for asking.
