  1. Brandon Charlotte, NC 5-aw callaway big bertha cf19s + 1/2" long upright 2° 20 handicap shoot avg 95 Would prefer t200s
  2. A couple of things to keep in mind. Most game improvement clubs these days have some jacked up lofts on them so the only way they stop on greens is by high launch. In your searches, look for more traditionally lofted clubs if you can, somewhere around 33-35 for 7 iron. Another big factor in launch will be the type of shafts you have on the club. If you go to a fitter and they don't have you try out some different shaft options ask them to. The same club with different shafts can have huge differences in ball flight.
  3. The shape of the putter is nice and it feels very balanced. Also not too heavy which gives you some extra control on fast greens. Played a round on thursday, not one of my best but I had a few great moments with the 2 crossover. The highlight was a 190 yards on a par 5 that stuck the green for my 3rd shot. Came to rest about 8 feet from the flag for a nice birdie attempt.
  4. Yep was a dicks guy. To be fair I wasn't hitting any shots consistently to get a baseline. Think it may have been nerves. But he was trying to offer swing mechanic advice that just wasnt helpful and then was like get some lessons and try again good day. Now the driving iron off the tee hasnt fixed all my problems, but for the last few rounds I have been pretty solid with it and am gaining confidence to use it in more areas besides the tee. It's an interesting beast. I am almost tempted to get fitted to it in the future, I feel like the dynamic lie on it is way too flat for me.
  5. I completely forgot about the eye2 grind lol. Just cant seem to wrap my head around that shape. How does it perform for you out of the sand?
  6. Its funny, I was able to hit a driver carry like 260 even get some bombs to finish at 300 when I first started playing. Couldnt hit anything else though to save my life. Had a lot of wild misses though that were not findable. They I went in to try and do a driver fitting and the guy shot my confidence down to an all time low and I have not been able to hit a driver since. That was about 4 months ago. Since then with focusing on iron play ive lowered my score by over 20 strokes. Chalking that up to better iron play and course management.
  7. One other thing I will note, I did not get fitted for this club. I tested out several "driving" irons at dick's one day when I was fed up with my driver. I was smacking around the demo of this club so well that day I bought one off the rack. I highly recommend not hitting a few good shots with a club and buying 1 off the rack lol. This does not indicate how it will always perform for you 100% of the time. I' ve also heard that sometimes demo clubs are slightly different than the actual product you are sold though I'm not sure of the validity of that.
  8. My pleasure. I like these wedges so much I want them to be on other people's radar. In the golf market right now, the marketing megaliths control the biggest pieces of the pie and sometimes the smaller guys have great products that simply get overlooked. Not saying ping is an unknown brand by any means, but titleist, taylormade, callaway all hold onto a very big piece of the market. To me, these companies all seem to be selling the same thing at times too, not a whole lot of variance except a little aesthetically. But they are also the "trusted" guys out there and you know what you are getting
  9. This is a very valid point, however people's handicaps take into account every aspect of their game. For me, my iron game is about the only thing allowing me to break 100. My putting is mediocre, short game around the greens is questionable at times, and I have no driver. So off the tee, I'm smiling if I just get it in the fairway anywhere over 180 yards. The 4 crossover would likely not gain me much over my 5 iron right now. I also picked up this club before I was able to start gaming my 3 wood recently and the super hybrid. So its stayed in the bag more or less for the variety of shots I can
  10. Hey everyone. I've recently aquired a set of ping glide 3.0 wedges in 52° ss grind and 56° as grind. I plan to buy the 60° as well soon although I'm not sure which grind to go with at the moment although im leaning towards ws grind for more ease out of bunkers. I chose those lofts as my pw is 44° and aw is 48°. The wedges I replaced were callaway md4s in similar lofts with a grind and 10 bounce. The first thing that I notice when looking down at the club is the size of the head feels slightly larger and the shaft lengths are longer. For me being over 6' tall that is a huge plus already. A
  11. I got them in standard sole. A couple things that pushed me towards those wedges, shaft length is a little longer than standard for wedges which is great for me. 2 I love how the grips extend further and have marks on them for gripping down on the for more controlled chipping around the greens. 3 the hydropearl finish from the reviews ive seen dramatically help reduce spin loss in wet conditions and in NC thats almost a given half the time. Lastly, they have a much softer feel to them compared to the callaway Mack daddy 4s I was using. I have pretty much converted to ping for short game 1
  12. Hey everyone, my name is Brandon and I just joined up with mygolfspy a few days ago. I am 33 and just started playing golf about a year ago. I live in Charlotte, NC and typically shoot in the mid 90s. Joined up on mygolfspy because I have become completely engrossed in the sport since starting and wish to learn as much as i can. NC is pretty warm year round so golf is playable as long as its dry... My usual course I play is olde sycamore. To me golf is an escape from the stress of everyday life where I can focus on making myself a better, healthier person and enjoy life in the process. If
  13. So with the epic pro irons, on my best strikes I was hitting every club about a club further than I am hitting the berthas. The biggest issues I found were that when i hit one perfect out the center of the epics, I flew 10 yards past my avg strike. Miss hits could drop off anywhere from 10 to 20 yards off my avg strikes. I also was not fit in these and topped a lot of shots due to being a bit taller than average. So dispersion carry distance wise was huge. Left to right dispersion was not so different. That more or less came down to how well I was playing on a given day. Hope that helps!
  14. Hey guys, I recently got my first iron fitting about 2 months ago and ended up in a set of big berthas. Before going into the fitting, this set was not even on my radar of game improvement irons that I was looking to try. The fitters had me try out these, the new mavericks, and by request the mizuno jpx hot metals. My old set was the 2017 callaway epic pro irons( I really should not have bought those online but just loved how they looked). Upon trying these all out, performance hands down went to the big berthas for me. So I got those and had to get them + 1/2 in and upright 2°. Since get
  15. Something else to consider, if you find yourself slicing the wood off the deck but not off the tee, there could be a lie angle adjustment to fix that. If your lie is too flat( the toe of your club is hitting the ground first), that will cause your club face to open at contact causing the slice to occur. Obviously there are a ton of other possibilities but that might be a good place to start. I know its a lot cheaper to buy clubs used or off the internet but fittings make so much of a difference its worth the extra $ if you have it to spend. Most of the time fitters will include it in the
