  1. I'm not a talented enough golfer to contribute to this thread maybe as intended, but thought I would give my input. I also prefer to play 9 holes at a time and typically shoot around a 46 so I'm about 6 shots worse than you. I've had a golf club acquisition problem over the years and have put into play over the past few years: G15 - I have had them for years, but despite the size do not strike them consistently well. I think it is because of the wide soles and my picker "brush the grass" type of impact position. I still have these. I keep thinking after bad stretches that these
  2. Did you iron shafts make the club too flat because of a length difference? Or maybe the swing weight was too light? Dave
  3. I get good ball speed from the ST190 driver, but am suffering from gear effect on heel side misses. GIven I'm seeing some out-to-in path already, the gear effect miss makes the driver unplayable. Back to the K15. Dave
  4. Post some pics and feedback. I have not used them, but people have used other budget wedges before like the Tom Watson Adams wedges and had good results. Dave
  5. Get well, I've enjoyed reading your posts on here and classic clubs forum. Dave
  6. Fairways seem to be the club that a lot of golfers will keep in the bag that is much older than the rest of their clubs. It can be hard to find a fairway that you get along with, if you fare well with your current one definitely don't trade it in when you get a different one! Dave
  7. Has it been the same shaft type that has broken each year? Dave
  8. I much prefer twilight. Courses are typically not crowded and its much easier to go out as a single. Dave
  9. What is your definition of very low? The Maltby Playability Factor measurements have data for CoG. They don't measure sole width though. Quite a few of the older players irons have low COG and thin sole. Dave

    7 woods

    7 woods can work great for some, they are good for a high approach shot to the green. I think you run into trouble if it starts ballooning. I think hybrids are better for the average guy. Dave
  11. I picked up a Louisville Golf Tour Classic 2 wood with True Temper TT Lite shaft at Nevada Bob's in Madison for $10 a couple years back, but have only used it for hitting balls at the range. I think it'd be fun to give it a go on the course, but would need some more practice first to see if I can tame it. It is interesting this is the Kirkland Signature golf ball thread. Do you find that you need to use softer golf balls with the persimmon? Dave
  12. I really like using mine outdoors hitting into a golf net. I'm fortunate that I have a farmer's field behind my house so if one misses it is less of a deal. Dave
  13. Sorry for going too far off topic, but I think it's awesome you are playing the persimmons. Do you find old clubs for bargains or are you finding them in better condition? Are these steel shafted? Dave
  14. I'm just expressing my opinion. If you disagree that's fine. Dave
