  1. Congrats - love to hear and read if the shoes walk the walk that lets the clubs talk the talk....
  2. Willie New Bern, NC Callaway Superhot 70 My experience has been limited to pitch practice in the back yard with a ton of "gimme" "rock-flite" XL's to more recently finding the occasional and playing the Top Flite D2 Distance. I like the sound and feel of the D2 and it seems to play well from tee to green.
  3. Willie / New Bern NC Size: 7.5 Addidas (just don't remember the model) - soft spikes I have to say how comfortable it is to my left foot (no toes/transmet amputation due to motorcycle wreck in 2016) and how it supports my stance as a I have little to no lateral support on that side. Couple the comfort with solid traction and we are cooking with gas.
  4. Mr Wishon makes some good points. Let me first say, I've never been fitted and know I should. COVID has killed that for me at the moment. Hopefully soon. For me, I play a 1" shorter shaft on the driver and I like it. I don't hit far, a lot of that is due to the physical mechanics I deal with (no toes on the left foot, grafted skin where they used to be, no lateral support in that foot, the list goes on). What has helped is that I have my driver dialed up in terms of loft somewhere around 11.5-12.0*. Then again I believe SLDR drivers need to be lofted up to get back to reasonable lofts.
  5. Willie - New Bern, NC Right Handed 1st choice - GS53 3wood - 14* MRC Tensei CK Blue 70 gram Reg flex 2nd choice - VKTR+ Hybrid 18* Recoil ES 75 F3 Reg 22.2 Taylormade SLDR-S 22* Hybrid
  6. Willie Abco Tech Indoor Golf Putting Green – Portable Mat with Auto Ball Return Function (from Amazon) Medium as I tend to switch between Muni and Semi-Private.
  7. Willie / New Bern Avg score: 100 Titleist 962 or Callaway Diablo Edge - depends on the day of the week...
  8. Willie - Bayboro, NC Cleveland CBX 54deg SW (would balance between the 50 & 58 I use in the CBX)
  9. 23 hdcp / New Bern, NC Titleist 692, 8i - 120yd Have heard much about them on MGS, but that’s about all.
  10. Gosh dang - I was hoping to see how it compares to the Garmon S20....good luck to the winners and looking forward to hearing it performs.
  11. Willie - North Carolina Yes - Garmin Approach S20 as well as Bushnell Range Finder Currently - 95% the Garmin, 5% the Bushnell (good for determining intermediate hazards as the Garmin only gives full distance to center of green). Would love to see how the SkyCaddie would do both.....
  12. This pretty much is how I have approached the driver, but I game a 44.5" driver. It is amazing how just one inch shorter shaft makes the club that much easier to hit. In my head? Or is it a reality? I don't hit it long so keeping it in the short grass as much as possible is the primary key.
  13. Willie / New Bern, NC A couple times a week about 15 min per session Three to four 3 putts per round on avg. New putter has seemed to lessen the frequency of these. Being able to really work on the stroke and get a real visual of the putt going in the hole. I believe this will help with timing and getting a good consistent putter rhythm happening.
  14. Why not? Like FootJoy stuff, so we'll see.
  15. Pretty much how I do it...however the older set I play from time to time (TA 845s from the late 1980's are marked with lofts on the faces). That was pretty much how I began to correlate loft w/distance. Fast forward to what I play most days - Callaway Diablo Edge irons which are a full club stronger than the old 845s and I just correlate, if I hit a 7 with the 845s, then the 8 with the Edges will be in the ball park. The real answer is that until everyone is told this is what "X-club" will be lofted at, with "_"stiffness, "_" torque, "_"kickpoint we will have variance in the industry.
