  1. That’s great to hear. There are days I enjoy hanging out with the guys, but Fridays (my day off) are for me and my gal!
  2. After I said, “I do,” I then had to say that thing... you know, the “something old, something new; something borrowed, something blue.” Well, what my wife didn’t know is the “something old” was another gal I brought into our marriage. And she was old. She was very old indeed. She was a beauty too. One I promised I’d never set aside as long as she stayed true. Her name? Bertha. And she is a beaut. I have had this 3W Big Bertha since the mid 90s and she’s still wonderful. Now, she doesn’t crush it down the fairway - maybe 220 on a good shot. But man does she fly straight. I would like to add another 3W eventually, but just to fill the gap and get closer to that 240 I’m missing. Now, the “something new” became a set of Cobra irons for my wedding gift. I loved them. (They’ve since been passed to my oldest and he’s going to do well with them). However, they were replaced (gasp), with a beautiful thing to behold: Titleist AP1 718s! Used, of course, because some folks like to pay $1,000 for a set of clubs to just turn around 6 months later to sell to me for half that! I have dropped a few strokes from every round. Maybe it’s because I switched from irons from 2004; maybe it’s because these AP1s are perfect for a mid to high handicapper like me (15). Whatever the case, I love them. Mixed in is a similar old and new wedge and sand wedge as well as a 15 year old TaylorMade R7 driver and brand new Ping Anzer putter. No idea why I do this old/new combo. I wonder, does anyone else fill their bag with something old, something new?
  3. Aloha (I just returned from Hawaii... it was amazing), I'm from South Carolina but have lived all over the world. It's good to be back home. I've been playing golf since I was about 15 (I'm in my 40s now) but still only shoot mid to high 80s. I think I'm just starting to get a bit more serious about the game. Golf is one of the most relaxing things I do. I'm a National Guard Chaplain and a pastor - these keep me quite busy so it's nice to get away from my jumbled mind as often as possible. Three overseas deployments with the military have me a bit constantly on edge as well. I need golf... and yes, I love to play golf with my wife. I joined MyGolfSpy because I loved their honest reviews. I found them through an add about a Titleist fitting. After doing some digging through the site and on YouTube, I'm hooked. I hope to get to know a few of you on line.
