  1. So I finally feel that I have my 2020 bag ready and done so here we go: Driver Cobra king F9 10.5 3-wood Titleist 915F (4h Cobra F9) 4-Pw Cobra Forge tec 48, 52 wedges Cleveland RTX4 (both bent 2 degrees strong lofted) 56 wedge Cobra Pur (60 wedge Cleveland RTX4 (bent 2 degrees weak) Ball Srixon Z-Star XV I started with 50, 54, 58 wedges but with my new irons the gap from Pw to Gap wedge were too big so I bent all my wedges but since the 58 only have a bounce of 9 that would mean a Sw with 7 bounce so opted for a new 56 and bend my 58 to a 60 instead. The hybrid and 60 degree is both in parenthesis because one of those need to stay in the car to keep it to 14 clubs. I think the hybrid will be the one to go out of the bag, last round I played the 4i went just as far as the 4h. Still a bit more confident with the 4h but with some work and more playtime with the 4i I think I will need the lob wedge more then the hybrid. Picture is from before I bent my wedges so the new 56 is missing.. Will try to get some more pics soon.

    We celebrated midsommar (midsummer) here in Sweden this past weekend. Big celebration for us so me and my GF and one other couple rented a cabin right next to the ocean. Me and the guy from the other couple went to play some golf on a nearby course that was challenging for a first time player. First of all there was a max at 220 yards on the range.. So no warm up with the longer clubs.. and a lot of blind tee shots and blind approach shots. The hardest hole of the course for me was the the one with the picture below.. First of all everything slopes very heavily to the left with out all the way.. Secondly the tee and green is about level with each other with a big creak in the middle so you need to keep the tee shot left and the approach high with a lot of stop on a blind green.. But all in all a nice round at a beautiful course.
  3. I love em! Just feels great on contract like that. When I miss it a little I still get good distance. I still have to get used to the new distances (a few yards longer) but so far I love them!
  4. Did some impact practice today with the new Irons. Also bombed some drives in to the woods over the range fence
  5. Yea I love the look and they are so comfy and stable. Picked them out of the box and right onto the course and it felt like I walked a round in my regular sneakers just so comfy!
  6. As I wrote yesterday I thought that I would be lucky to get the clubs today, but 30mins after my post I got notified that they had arrived! So I naturally picked them up on my way to the course for a round and they worked just so well right away! I do love them. I also got some new shoes to match!

    Half an hour before I was heading out for a round yesterday I got a call that my new forge tec irons arrived! So of course those came along with me for the round. I do love how they feel and how they perform. Even first round out they worked like a charm! Unfortunately not much else worked for me.. It was a late round so the roll on the greens were horrible and a lot slower then normal but after a few holes the putter worked as well. But the big stick went left, way left.. probably more left then I have ever hit that club before and that was with me for 4 holes before I put that back in the bag for the rest of the round.. Wedges, bunkers and chips all went down the toilet so a horrible score.. But super happy that my irons worked so well after 20min warm up with them!
  8. I agree, I love the modus 120. Got a set of forge tec on the way with the modus 120 shafts. That just felt right the first time I hit it. I could not control a single ball with the standard KBS Lite shaft.. The balls were just all over the place but with the modus 120 I had a nice little baby draw with every shot. If I am super lucky I might get them tomorrow but most likely some time next week. The ship to the club so I can´t track the package
  9. Some really good suggestions here. Thank you guys! I think I have an idea on how to move forward when my new sticks finally arrive.. can´t wait.
  10. So I have a new set of iron incoming in a few weeks. I did a fitting and know what that said my carry with 7i was. Since I don´t have a launch monitor I´m just curious how you guys figure out your distances with a new set of clubs? I find that just going to the range is not optimal since I find it hard to know if the ball lands 165 or 175 if I have a flag at 150 and another at 190. Also at the range the range balls will of course not be my regular gamer so yea.. Going to an empty course and hit a number of shots from a certain distance is not optimal since finding an empty course in the middle of summer is not that easy around these parts. I do have arccos so I will in time get a good idea on what my total lengths will be but that will take a couple of rounds at least to get a good idea on all the clubs. So what is your go to way to find out your distances? I know some courses in my area is offering to rent a launch monitor for around 50$/h is that worth it?
  11. I push and I´m 30, all my golf mates also push and they are all 25-35. It just makes golf easier on your back, I started out with carrying but tried a push cart once and have not gone back more than a handfull of times (In the winter months here in Sweden a lot of courses ban all carts to be more gentle on the course). I just feel it will allow me to be more fresh for every golf shot and also quicker, I can prepare with my club or rangefinder while walking and at the same time take a sip of my drink of choice. While when I used a carry bag I would need to set the bag down before being able to prepare for my shot.
  12. Did a Iron fitting and got fitted with Cobra Forge tec with Modus 120 stiff shafts, 0.5" long and 2 degree upright 4-Pw so I ordered that on the spot. Just felt really good after a while. I now game standard length/lie so the difference took a few strokes to feel right but yea really happy with that setup. Also I noticed a huge difference between the stock KBS Lite shaft and the Modus shaft. Just could not get the timing right with the KBS. Now I just have to wait 4 weeks for them.. Will be some long 4 weeks. They apparently ran out of forge tec heads.
  13. I will see if I can get those in there as well. Thanx for the input! As for handicap I see that it is not up to date. Currently at 16 but yea I agree on the 585, been looking at those as well.
  14. So I am going to go for an Iron fitting at the local store. I plan to try the forge tec, i500 and P790 for sure but looking for input on clubs in that same style that I should not miss out on trying while I´m there. Would love to try a Mizuno just not sure what model.. I will ask the fitter of course but would like your thoughts on clubs that should not be missed during my fitting. This will also be my first Iron fitting so any suggestions on things to remember or look closer at is also much appreciated.
  15. When I started playing golf last year I always got nervous when playing with anyone. Worse with people I have never played with but even more so with people that I know but never played with before. Only time I did not get nervous was when I played solo. However this year I got first of all fitted for a new driver so I have quite a bit more confidence from the tee in general but I also realize that playing with ppl is part of the game and I have gotten used to it. Just do you and it will work out.
