  1. My bag was 100% TaylorMade until mid season last year. 

    I  bag was;

    2016 M1 driver

    790 UDI 2 iron

    p770 3-PW lofted 1° weak

    52° Milled Grind bent to 50°

    54° Milled Grind bent to 55°

    60° Milled Grind HiToe 

    I game 7 different Putters, some TaylorMade, some not

     

    Everything is the same this year except the driver, last season I went from the M1 to M5 driver and the M5 just didn't outperform the M1 so I got rid of that and now game a PXG 0811x driver

  2. I live in Pennsylvania and played 2 rounds the past week, temps were in low 40s. Typically during this time of the year, I don't worried as much about my score and focus on my mechanics, ball striking, course management so it's all practice.

    Before my round today, I met a guy selling balls on letgo for $15.

    I got a dozen of Top Flite xldistance,

    a dozen Slazenger xtreme,

    a half dozen of Maxfli RevolutionD

    and 15pack of Callaway Superhots all new in box. 

    He also threw about 12 misc. used balls so damn near 50 balls to use in cold weather for $15

    I played all 18 with one of the top flites with no issues holding greens, actually spun one back a pretty good amount unexpectedly on a par 3.

  3. I ended up buying a box off Amazon for $25 with an old gift card. I purchased the Bison X for 100-110mph swing speed.

    ***Let's talk about the Feel*** 

    Advertised as "medium" firmness but man these things felt firm. Audible click with all clubs. I didn't mind it so much with the driver, irons and wedges but it really bothered me with putting. I play a Evnroll ER8 and it didn't have the buttery soft feel I'm used to.

    ***Let's talk about the Cover***

    The cover feels hard in hand. If you look closely at it, the cover almost looks like it sparkles. I had a good round today and played only 1 ball through all 18. Durability was decent, no complaints about cover durability from me.

    ***Let's talk about performance***

    Ball flight seemed a tad higher than I usually have but not crazy, out of the norm high.

    The ball grabbed and checked up on the greens on full approach and chips way better than I expected them to, especially considering how they feel. I actually kept coming up short because they just felt like they would roll out more than other balls but that wasn't the case. Once I started to trust they wouldn't excessively roll out, I started to get much closer to the pin.

    I feel like they may be a shorter, like 5 yards shorter across all clubs but I kept all balls in play so I'll take it.

    I could shape them with no issues. I like to play a fade with the driver and draw with my irons and wedges and that was the shape I had all day. They may have actually played straighter than usual but that could have just been a good day swinging. Didn't have any unexpected offline shots to make me think quality control is a big issue.

    Overall if I could get over the feel when putting I could game these. Maybe I'll try the softer model next and see how they play and feel

    1. My name is Chris and I started playing golf when my mom got me a series of lessons when I was 9 years old. Even though I started when I was younger I did not get into it till I was in high school. My 1st job was a cart boy at this place called Mountain Manor in Marshalls Creek PA (Which is no longer there) and I played for the high school team. Now I'm 26 I have a 4.5 H.I. (average 74-78 a round)

    2. I love golf for the challenges you face, the architecture, and the cool people you meet.

    3. What brings you to MyGolfSpy is years of reading the reviews and I want to add my point of view, be involved in testing, talking to other "spies" and learning some of the hard facts.

    4. I am from the Pocono Mts in PA . My home course was The Architects Golf Club in Phillipsburg, NJ but now I have recently switched to Buck Hill Golf Club in Buck Hill Falls, PA (a Donald Ross design).

    5. Best things about this area for golf is the history having a lot of clubs from the early 1900's-1920's. Including places like Shawnee on the Delaware hosting the 1938 PGA Championship and years later Arnold Palmer meeting his wife there. The worst thing about the area is the short season. When winter comes most of the places shut down by mid November and don't open to late March or early April.

    6. I am an Assistant Golf Pro and I am working on my accounting degree (Just in case a career in golf doesn't work out)

    7. I picked this user name because its a pun of my last name that my one friend came up with. It made me laugh so I always use it when I can. Its stuck around for the last few years. Even used it as my team name in my Masters pool picks this year and ended up winning.

    I love architects, great course

  5. I'm also in love with the superhot bold red. 

    Have you noticed that the superhot bolds cover feels really tacky, like rubber compared to normal white Superhot.

     

    I normally play urethane balls but lately been fighting a snap hook so decided to buy something cheaper until I straighten out the hook. I bought the superhot Bolds at Walmart and I'm falling in love with them. I think after I use up my 16 dozen proVs, Chromesofts, Bridgestones, snells and tp5s, Superhot bolds might be my go to

  6. I have a lot of putters. I love putters, I collect them. 

    I travel for work and finished at a customer early that was near a PGA Superstore. I spent 6 hours in the store hitting every putter in there. I kept gravitating back to the Evenroll. Ball dispersion and distance was just so damn consistent compared to every thing else. The feel off the face, just wow.

    Since June 14th, 2018, I have owned the 34" ER8.

    I'm a stats fanatic, I track everything.

    I reset all my stats every year. 

    My average putts per hole per year;

    2016 = 2.0

    2017 = 1.9

    2018 = 1.8 (Evnroll purchased half way through season)

    2019 = 1.6 (18 rounds so far)

     

    Love it
