  1. Agree with @Nic - let's see that wedge! Wouldn't mind seeing the whole setup too ....
  2. OK OK - but be warned the headcover game is weak. I just started collecting headcovers last year after my buddy and I got to play a scramble in private course here in Michigan called Lost Dunes, and won the scramble. I decided to get a headcover to remember it by. Since then I have acquired a few if I play a memorable round somewhere or come across something that i can't pass up Standard : Orange and Blue setup. Stitch orange/blue/white cow cover from Lost Dunes Stitch Alignment stick cover from Bay Harbor Stock covers for 3w/Hyb July setup - Red white and Blue Driver: Travis Matthew HC picked up at Tullymore after a good round 3W: Arcadia bluffs HC after my first round out there
  3. I would love to see your collection sometime! Do you know if anyone has a Bobby Grace thread somewhere on here? Would like to share mine sometime too. Have you tried any of the newer stuff (F-18, F-22, HSM1/2)?
  4. Hope you enjoy this setup as much as I've enjoyed looking at some of yours - Cheers MGS! I'll start off with saying this is the first set of irons I've owned that aren't Mizuno and the first wedges that aren't Cleveland. I picked up the game about 15 years ago after I graduated college - finding a great set of Mizuno T-Zoids, GBB 4-wood, Driver, Cleveland wedges, and an old 1969 Ping hotdog putter at a garage sale for $20 with bag (I have all these clubs still - maybe I'll do a WITB with this set too). The lady that sold it to me told me that her husband just bought all new stuff and didn't need it anymore but he didn't know she was selling it. I have to assume he's never let her forget that - assuming he let her live. Fast forward 12 years through several used sets of Mizuno Irons, Celeveland wedges and revisions on all of these clubs I'm feeling great with every club in here, but feeling odd without the Mizuno irons in there. Long story short - Mixed bag, mixed feelings. I acquired the set of PXG's over the winter at a local shop for $400 and figured I couldn't pass them up. I did a shaft fitting and wow that makes all the difference. Right now the DG120S fit my game perfectly. Last year I went to a demo days, expecting to move from Cleveland to Callaway wedges (love the look), and somehow, after hours of hitting wedges walked away with Mizuno JPX919's. Still shocked because I had never considered Mizuno wedges, it was definitely not a brand name purchase - they were just the best for my swing. Same story with the Exotics 3W. Was expecting to walk away with a Rogue - but feel, sound, and launch monitor all agreed - Exoitcs it was. I stumbled into the Rogue driver after I got fit for the Epic a few years ago and had massive quality issues with it. Four Epic's later and one exploded crown, they sent me a Rogue and it's been fantastic. I think the most interesting club in my bag is my putter. I picked this up a few years into the game and haven't found better. I moved to the Spider last year and part of this year but had to come back to my Bobby Grace and it felt like coming home. I own 6 Bobby Grace putters, but the M5K-GT is the go to. Why Bobby Grace? I'm not sure... but it's been my thing. As a side note, I've always played Bridgestone balls, but this year decided to dedicate a year to ProV1 - it just seemed like I should probably play at least one season with the most popular ball in golf. I've been happy so far but am dying to give this years Bridgeys a couple rounds, too.

  5. Could you hook me up with that sweet Broke 80 badge please? Gracias!
  6. Have never hit a Titleist club before but they look great, love everything about it esp how the covers and bag match up. Would love to carry that around. Good luck this year!
  7. How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score? I started playing golf about 13 years ago, just after I got out of college. Fell in love instantly and have forever been hooked. Current USGA handicap is 6.4 but I seem to shoot 82 a lot. Move to the back tees? 82...move up...82? Play Whistling Straights 82, play Joes 18 hole putt putt course, 82. I do break into the 70s a few times a year and +1 is my best round ever. What do you love about golf? The challenge against yourself. Physical and mental game. Not to mention that golf courses are basically a beautiful park - who wouldnt want to spend 4-5 hours out there? What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies? Follow a lot of the articles and occasional podcast. Always come to MGS for product reviews before I buy anyhting. Where are you from? What is your home course? Kalamazoo, MI - Milham GC and Angels Crossing GC What are the best and worst things about golf in your region? Best - there is a lot of golf, and a lot of really nice golf in Michigan. It's mostly reasonably priced and you don't have to drive too far. Of course the worst things is that we have almost half the year that is not golfable. What do you do for a living? Software Development, Engineering Management How’d you pick your user name? Standard Alias for me. I'm really looking forward to getting involved in the forums, discussions, and hopefully some product tests down the line.

  9. Bobby - Kalamazoo, Michigan 95-100 mph - Driver Bridgestone B X and Srixon Z-star I tried out Snell in June of 2016 with a dozen of their Original MTB. I really liked the ball, but wasn't the biggest fan of the visible seem down the middle. I shot well with it, but was still exploring other options and kept coming back to Bridgestone and Srixon. I've dropped 3-4 strokes off my game since then and am curious about its performance comparatively.
