  1. Yes, we old guys need to get over it. Recently a few courses in my area have recolored the tees; so what were the white tees, now are the blue tees - it seems to work on a lot of people. This is the opposite of 25 years ago when blue tees were recolored to white tees. Moving to forward tees does create a new set of problems, like bunkers and hazards that were not in play before coming into play. Shorter may not be easier until you learn the lines.
  2. While equipment bifurcation is somewhat a change; but rules of competition and local rules affecting highly skilled players already provided some level of bifurcation. As far as I have observed no local championships are testing equipment of going through bags to insure compliance with conforming lists. While the distance debate makes no sense in terms of most golfers; perhaps the regulating bodies should require longer fairways to reduce roll and cutting greens only every third day; and remove rakes from bunkers for highly skilled players.

    I tried Ballnamic, reminded of the Golfball Selector, which did something similar. I thought I set price at mid-point so results are a little off; In order of ranking, Bridgestone Tour BX, Vice Pro-Plus (my current ball), Callaway Chrome Soft X; Bridgestone Tour XS, and Maxfli Tour X (my backup ball) I have tried all balls. Price points make Vise and Maxfli better choices. Vise also has the coolest colors. The cool colors enhance the smack talking on the tee.
  4. Edison 59 degree bent to 58 for all shots around green, except when there is no grass; then it is what club seems right.
  5. Not sure if you can blame it on the clubs, holed out A wedge from 100 yards for my first eagle and hit PW to 3 feet from 115 for kick in birdie. Played the 3 par 5 is 3 under a first for me. Siub70 699 Pro's in black. I had stopped playing my Ping G400 6 iron and replaced it with a Mavrik 6 hybrid, now hitting the 699 Pro 6 iron more consistently and longer.
  6. I have played a 59 bent to 58, the heads are somewhat compact especially when compared to the equivalent ping G-400 wedge. Takes a while to learn to use the sole. My current wedge set up is the stock sub70 PW & AW, Ping Glide 2.0 54 and the Edison. Only 5 rounds on the sub70's. 100+ rounds with the other wedges. Full 54 80 yards and 58 70.
  7. Just added the Sub70 669 Pro black, 6-A. haven't played a 6 iron for a while, hitting a Mavrik 6 hybrid. The Sub70 6 iron is as long and more reliable at this sitting. Replaced Ping G400's; still playing Ping Glide 2 54degree and Edison 59 bent to 58 wedges. Handicap ranges from 15 - 18 depending on putting.
  8. It always seems to vary - mostly depending on the putter in the bag. But with the purchase of Sub70 Irons, Ping, Callaway, Edison, SeeMore, balls Maxfli, Titleist, Bridgestone
  9. Has there been any tests of the See More Putters.
  10. Has any one tried Edison Wedges, they claim a shifting of weight to higher on face for more consistent strikes.
  11. Club fitting if it hasn't been done in a while. Lessons that address a specific weakness.
  12. I cannot enter even following instructions, Grint support not responsive.
  13. My experience is ProV1s are hotter of the putter.
  14. Has anyone out there tried the ClearGolf Shaft that Mark Lye is promoting on his PGA Radio Show. $450 price on the Cleargolf. They also offer balls at $68 a dozen.
