  1. I love this shaft. It feels stable without being a telephone poll. I use it in all of my woods. I am selling it as I did not like the more muted driver sound. Historically, I have played Ping drivers and have grown to feel more comfortable with the louder sound and feel.
  2. I used this club for a little over a year, so there is some wear, but it is minimal. Reply to this thread or message me for more info. Clubhead: 2021 Callaway X-Forged UT 18* Shaft: Project X IO 6.5 115g Grip: GolfPride MCC Plus 4 Gray Asking Price: $135 Shipped
  3. I used this putter for about six months before deciding it wasn't for me (like too many others). As of now, Toulon does not sell an Atlanta Double Bend outside of the Custom Garage. This is also an interesting putter as it is 37" long and has an armlock grip. I will include the Certificate of Authenticity from the Toulon Garage. Message me or comment on the thread for more details. Clubhead: 2022 Toulon Garage Atlanta Double Bend Grip: SuperStroke Armlock Gray Length: 37" Lie: STD Loft: 3.5* Asking Price: $250 Shipped
  4. I used this putter for about six months, so there is little to no wear on the club. The putter cover does have a few rough spots. Reply to this thread or message me through the forum for more details. Clubhead: 2023 Toulon Las Vegas Double Bend Loft: 3* Grip: Toulon Pistol Grip Lie: STD Length: 33" Asking Price: $250 Shipped
  5. I used this club for a little over a season, so it has some wear on the face but no major scratches or defects. I am willing to sell the shaft separately from the clubhead if you are only interested in the Graphite Design shaft. Comment on this thread or message me through the forum for more details. Clubhead: Mizuno STZ 3 Wood 15* Shaft: Tour AD Graphite Design DI-7 X-Stiff Grip: GolfPride MCC Plus 4 Blue Length: 43” Asking Price: $199 Shipped
  6. This club is barely used (maybe 50 total shots) and includes the headcover. I am willing to sell the shaft separately from the head if you are interested in the Ventus shaft alone. Reply to this thread or message me through the forum for more details. Clubhead: Taylormade Stealth 2 Plus 8* Shaft: Ventus TR Black 6x Grip: GolfPride MCC Plus 4 Gray Length: 45.5” Asking Price: $520 shipped ($980 MSRP)
  7. Hello Everyone, I am a competitive junior golfer who has played at the state, regional, and national level. I was curious to see if anyone had any questions surrounding junior golf (how we practice, play, tournaments, skill levels, etc.) or what the next generation of players may look like?
  8. For those who are interested, I recorded a podcast on this topic. https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/how-your-personality-type-affects-your-golf-game-with/id1505899434?i=1000544792459 Or just click the most recent episode at theperfectpar.com
  9. Just an interesting thought I had the other day. I'll start us off. I am an INTJ. I'm SUPER analytical and process-driven which is great for my golf game; however, I am also SUPER self-critical which isn't so much of a good thing for golf. Golf is such a mental game, your personality must have at least some influence on the way you play the game in my opinion. What are your thoughts? Am I way off here?
  10. Mine is with Edwin Watts (which I think is the same as Roger Dunn). I had just been playing seriously for six months and it was my first fitting. My coach had sent me with a list of things to try. I began by hitting the drivers (rookie mistake) and was carrying it about 200. Keep in mind I was eleven years old and had not played very long. My "fitter" started telling me to swing faster and faster. He tried to change my grip from an interlock to an overlap and reconstructed my entire swing. I was never fit for clubs; he was just coaching me with different heads. At the end of the fitting (or lesson) I could barely hit the ball. I had tons of swing thoughts and just could not piece anything together. He handed my dad a business card and promised I would be a scratch golfer in four months. I was a 21 at the time. It was a horrible experience.
  11. Hello everyone, I have been working with a new instructor for almost three months and we have fixed nearly all of my prominent swing issues. The one that remains is my head likes to drop down and towards the golf ball in the backswing. When I try to not move it, I either top the ball, or move slightly closer and toe the living crap out of it. Has anyone else had this issue, or do you have any tips for keeping the head still without topping or toeing the ball? In this video, I do a decent job, but I toe the ball badly.
  12. Have any of you sold your clubs to 2nd swing? Can you comment on the how the process works? I recently got a new set of clubs and am looking to sell my old set.
  13. I played a round with my new golf instructor yesterday, and I could not drive the ball straight at all. I did not feel that I was swinging bad, and my instructor said I was swinging well. He concluded it was a club problem. I had a lesson this morning where he fit me for a new driver. Below are the specs of my old driver and my new one: OLD: Titleist TS3 10.5* Mitsubishi Tensei Blue 55g stiff flex 45" NEW: Callaway Maverick Sub Zero 10* Mitsubishi Tensei CK Orange 70g XX-stiff 44" All of the sudden, my misses are in the fairway, I'm hitting my driver 20 yards farther, and on a much more favorable trajectory. It blew my mind how much just changing a club has changed my confidence on the tee.
  14. I switched from Ping G700s to Titleist T100 a year ago. When I switched, my handicap was 8, and I was NOT a good ball striker. I was so tired of looking at a chunky club, I was willing to sacrifice forgiveness. At first, it was very frustrating hitting small mishits and seeing bad results, but the smaller club head gave me better feel of my mishit. For example, I could better feel if it was a toe shot, or fat shot. I credit this better feeling to my incredible improvement to a +1.5 handicap. Below are three questions I think you should answer before you make the jump, because it is a jump. How important is looks? Are you tired of a big head? Does something smaller scare you? Are you okay with the possibility of worse scores when you first switch? Are more focused on hitting greens, or workability and feel?
  15. Earlier this year just before Covid, I purchased an Amazon Basics golf net. It was ridiculously cheap, and if it was terrible, I was only out $70. It wasn't terrible though. I had a Rukket net for a long time before I got rid of it, and this net is practically the same thing for half the price. It handles all of my clubs, even driver. If you are looking for something affordable that isn't hard to store, I recommend it. It seems to have gone up in price to around $90 for some reason, but it's still cheaper than most. https://www.amazon.com/AmazonBasics-Portable-Driving-Practice-8-Foot/dp/B07C8P5M3L/ref=sr_1_2?dchild=1&keywords=amazon+basics+golf+net&qid=1602780385&sr=8-2
  16. I just recently took my 3 wood out of the bag for the first time ever. I had a gapping session that showed no significant difference between my 5 and 3 wood. I never struggled finding the middle, but I always hit it low. That was strange for many reasons including I hit my irons to the moon and back, and I don't have speed issues (106-108mph with driver). However, a twenty-handicap friend of mine hits his 3 wood the best out of all his clubs. In my opinion, it is different for everyone. When I was first learning, I always topped my 3 wood. I believe this is one of the reason's I never really fully bonded with it. If I didn't start hitting 3 wood until I was a better golfer, I believe it would have performed better. There is no shame using a 5 wood though; I hit mine 245 carry and get it high in the air. Many other junior golfers would agree with me.
  17. I just finished my first professional gapping session yesterday on Trackman with a temperature of 85*F and an elevation of 550'. I went to the course today and hit the ball extremely well, but I was 10-15 yards short all day of the yardages determined yesterday. The temperature today was 60*F so I expected 6-8 yards difference but not 10-15. Anyone else had a similar experience?
  18. Has anyone ever had the idea to have a forum-wide golf tournament? You could have everyone play within a one week time period. Their lowest score from the week can be posted along with their handicap and course rating/slope in one thread similar to when posting for a reviewing opportunity. The lowest gross score could win something. Thoughts?
  19. If I hit 10 shots, about seven would go right at 175 yards. But then two-three shots will either be long or short. My coach and I are currently accrediting the shorter distance to recent swing changes. I just changed coaches to Brandt Snedeker's old coach so I've been seeing him for a few months. We are saying the longer distances are me growing and I will have extra spurts of muscle growth. This was one last look to make sure there was nothing else I could do. My dispersion is pretty good with a push miss.
  20. That's a great question. My MAIN issue is putting. I am currently working with a putting coach who has been on the PGA, Champions, and LPGA tour for 38 years. I am spending a majority of my time there. My next biggest issue is distance inconsistencies with my irons, not caused by bad contact. This is why I am exploring changing my backswing tempo. I came here to get opinions before I started because let's be honest, I don't want to waste my time. Take out everything swing mechanics for a minute, if you saw my swing on the range or something, would your first thought be that I have a fast backswing? Just curious.
  21. I am trying to knock out any inconsistencies in my swing. I have noticed very few modern tour players with fast backswings. I do feel when I use super speed sticks, I am able to load more power into the ball when I take it back slower. I am a perfectionist, and that helps and kills me at the same time....
  22. Right now, I'm just working on getting my left hand knuckles turned down to get a little bit more control on the face. I have an insane amount of lag, so by turning my knuckles, it evens out the face and allows me to not worry about the face. Because of my skill level, I don't see my coach that often, and we've never brought up tempo before, but I'll probably bring it up in my next lesson.
