  4. If I had to recommend 1 course, it would definitely be Lonnie Poole at NC State. It’s an Arnold Palmer designed course (last one he ever designed actually). It’s a bit expensive but totally worth it. A few other good ones in the area are The Neuse (20 minutes east of Raleigh), Pine Hollow (15 minutes east of Raleigh), and Falls Village (15 minutes west of Raleigh). Falls Village went through an ownership change and redid all greens, tee boxes, and bunkers. It’s a beautiful course, so don’t pay attention to the old bad reviews (picture of their scenic par 5 below)
  5. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed them. Eventually I’ll upgrade to a more players iron but these to me are the best GI irons. They still look nice at address and don’t seem chunky or clunky.
  6. Yeah I’m definitely a Titleist fan...just don’t get along with their woods as much. The TS line has great reviews and a lot of people like them but they just weren’t working with my swing/eyes.
  7. I’ll have to check them out. Thanks!
  8. I love the T200 and the T100s. I need a bit of help on distance and both of these provide that option while also looking amazing at address
  9. Definitely recommend getting fitted like others have said. Some people perform better with GI and some people do better with blades...all depends on you, your swing, and your preferences. To answer your question though, best GI clubs to me are the Titleist T300 and if you want something in the middle then the Titleist T200/AP3 are my choices. Again, getting fitted is your best option though.
  10. Love the mixed bag setup and the use of dual putters. I also have 2 putters...a special select squareback 2 and an Odyssey Red Ball. I go back to the red ball when I feel like I’m rushing my swings and not aligning properly
  11. That’s kinda scary! I would be a bit worried if my clubs were somewhere random and I couldn’t track them down.
  12. To me, yes. I need all my clubs to look good and appealing to the eyes. For instance, with putters, I do better with a mid mallet than a blade but I like the blade look. I made the best of both worlds using a Scotty Squareback 2 and one of the deciding factors was how it looked. SC are the best looking putters to me and give me confidence just looking down at it
  13. Beautiful bag! I almost went with the HM myself when I was going through a fitting. Mizuno’s are some of the best looking irons for sure
