  1. Driver, fairway, hybrids - Ping Irons - TaylorMade Wedges - Cleveland Putter - Odyssey Tend to mix up ball brands even more….most prevalent “OPB”
  2. A local semi-private club offered a “special 3-yr membership”, so the missus and I joined. It is struggling to make the course better. The benefits are if you walk 9, it’s free. To ride 9 or 18 it’s just the cart fee. I also play number of other semi-private courses in the area, some in super nice shape.
  3. Will need to check my FBS (found ball stock) to see what the current level of CS along with ProV-1, TP5, etc. I have been averaging 2-3 found balls per round of late, most are in plain view - think folks don’t care to look for them. On the story about Callaway and their not taking new orders, I am not surprised. The current climate is such that all markets are seeing material shortages. I suspect we will see long lead times all across the industry for some time.
  4. The last paragraph is what I have been doing - being certain of where I am planning for the ball to go. I pick the smallest target point in the distance, when on the tee, and plan the shot path from there. Quietly confident in where the shot is going, knowing I am not going to land in the bird box 600yds away, but will be somewhere along the line of flight I envision. Once read “see it, feel it, trust it” and it has been a life changer. Work on the driver on the range, picking specific targets for each drive….then after each shot take a moment to assess what went right, what did not. Also powder foot spray on the driver face will give great feedback as you begin to correlate the shot observed with the impact seen. Of course a Trackman or related device will give you all that and much more.
  5. Man I was just kidding about the custom initials. Yes, I do live in the states (NC in fact). Appreciate the offer on sending a sleeve my way, I am sure that with such I would likely lose them too quickly to appreciate such.
  6. What Hook DeLoft said - first clubs I ever used were blades from the late 60’s - early 70’s so thin lines don’t scare me. Yes the narrow soles will make you think twice….but. As Shankster points out below… I don’t feel comfortable behind them, they are so clunky. That is why I parked the Callaway Diablo Edges. I have a good middle ground with the SLDR irons.
  7. Short and/or hard dogleg par 4’s are typically fairway wood or 3h. Rest of the time it’s big stick unless it’s misbehaving and then I back down till there is an agreeable club that day.
  8. This will be a fun one to see how the results roll, even if not chosen - some of my fave irons were the DCI 962s I recently gifted a good friend.
  9. I was going to be all stupid and say they are my custom initialed balls they built for me but got shipped elsewhere. The mold initials makes great sense….now I will be looking as I would like one day come across some with the “WT” mold markers, my initials btw.
  10. Looking forward to seeing how the results happen - also entered as I would love to see how much better my putts would be with a genuine custom putter.
  11. Congrats everyone - was hoping I would be picked. Will continue to game the ball of the day for me (whichever OPB happens in my hand). Will be a good read on what folks "see" in the balls from tee to green and beyond.
  12. Remember the cameras cutting to #6 last year as they were finishing the tournament. Thought they were just updating the greens, wrong! The man has an eye for design, have yet to play one of his courses, but I like what he said about Muirfield “...May not be tougher, but it is better...”. Makes me appreciate the Golden Bear much more. This course will be his ultimate legacy.
  13. I have done something similar using dimes, practice mat and lob wedge. The premise there was to catch the dime clean. It was about engaging the bounce, but it also encouraged consistent knowledge of the low point of the swing.
  14. Ditto - my CBX wedges are da’ bomb!
  15. Have always heard great things about these putters - never tried one, hopefully will be chosen to test. However if I am not, it is all good as I will follow the testers to read what they say.
