  1. I'm 75 but still hit the ball 230+ off the tee. And I'm a 9 handicap. That's from the gold tees. If I play good why should I still have to play the white tees? I work hard at my game and others my age don't. We play from the tees we want and no one says a word. We enjoy the game. I wish some of the young beginners would play the shorter tees. They all go back to the blacks (or blues) and hit it 150 yards two fairways over.
  2. These are my tees. They are awesome. Always same height. Flex-Head G3-175 Drive Tee - Flex-Head Tees ©
  3. Xcalibur Mystic or Avalon. Absolutely the best shaft for the money. They come in different weights then those bellow. https://xcalibershafts.com/collections/avalon-series/products/avalon-5-wood https://xcalibershafts.com/collections/mystic-series/products/mystic-5-wood These replaced a Tensei AV Blue 55
  4. Spikeless. No changing those damn spikes and the traction is just fine. They wear out just buy a new pair.
  5. I always wanted a C-130 cart bag and a couple years ago finally got one. I loved it. But then all the threads at the bottom of the full length dividers came out letting the clubs go past the bottom and snarl all up like a bag without dividers. Then the zippers started going to hell. I've had Ogio, Ping, Titleist and other bags that this same stuff happens to and now have a Callaway Org 14 bag. So far so good.
  6. Two Oaks North GC in central Wisconsin (God's country). See link to golf course info. Two Oaks North Golf Course | Wisconsin Golf Courses | Wisconsin Public Golf (20+) Two Oaks North Golf Course | Facebook
  7. If you're old (I'm 75) and still hit the ball 230-260 yards (90's swing speed) the Project X Cypher 50 shaft in 5.5 flex can't be beat. I've got it in my Epic Max and I'm always in the fairway and hit it longer then any 75 year old has a right to. Cypher Graphite Golf Shafts | True Temper Sports
  8. I bought a Callaway Epic Max at the end of last year and love it. I bought a Stealth this spring and was disappointed. Epic is much more forgiving. Traded the Stealth for a new bag and wedge. Hitting the snot out of the Epic.
  9. I "blow on" my grips with air so if I wear out a grip I can change it in 5 minutes. Seems to work like a champ. Anyone else?
  10. I built a 50" chest putter years ago and putted lights out with it. When they changed to not letting you anchor it I went back as that to me was the advantage to it. Bernhardt still uses it and I'm betting he anchors it. How can you tell?
  11. I had the first version in one of my past drivers and I liked it.
  12. My brother bought a set and he absolutely loves them. Is hitting them sweet.
  13. These are the best I've found. Consistent height, unbreakable and ball doesn't fall off. Flex-Head G3 - Flexible, Unbreakable Golf Tees
  14. I used a 50" years ago and never putted that good since. I just didn't like that huge thing sticking out of my bag.
  15. GolfPride MCC +4 standard size on my woods and Tour Velvet +4 on everything else.
  16. "Made for" is not correct. I paid $250 for an upgrade shaft (had to turn in original shaft). That shaft costs $350 normally. It is NOT a made for shaft. And the original was NOT a made for shaft. Those days are gone. I have a friend who used to build clubs for Koepka, Johnson and Lexi Thompson and now has his own shop. He tested my "made for" shafts from my drivers and they are the real deal. My new Stealth is on it's way through my golf course.
  17. Can you imagine the number of "hackers" that have hit that face? After my Stealth comes I'll let you know.
  18. I was a big fan of the HZRDOUS line until I went to the KBS TD Driver/Wood Shaft - KBS (kbsgolfshafts.com) in category 3 (stiff) at 70 g. Try it.
  19. My brother just got a set of those this year and loves them.
  20. Retired metallurgist here. 8620 is a common "carburizing" (case hardening) grade used in gears etc. In the raw state it is slightly harder then 1020. A plain carbon steel like 1020 has larger "grains" then an alloyed steel which makes 8620 stronger. Both are commonly forged steels. One difference in forged irons vs. cast is that you will get grain "flow" from the process which is claimed to make them stronger. Someone (Clevelqnd?) came out with a new miracle cast iron that was in reality not made of steel but of ductile iron.. It felt soft because ductile iron has graphite nodules in the microstructure which would help dampen vibration.
