  1. I was fitted a few years ago with Sam Putt Lab at CC and they fitted me into a 34” slight toe hang mallet. At that time I didn’t buy from them and took those shoes specs elsewhere. I think putters are very mental and you need to like the looks and feel of the most used club. I have been through 6 putters since the lifting looking for the right (to me) design, look and feel while having great confidence. I think I’m very close with the Spider SR 34” face balanced (no toe hang) putter and like the insert feel, alignment, look and confidence. Since I play in two locations year round May get a 2nd putter for pure sex appeal and fun at the location with no competitions. For competition it’s the SR. In all fairness to CC I did move from 35” to 34” and happy with this. I spent a lot of time trying putters at PGASS and bought from them. It did take a few changes since putting in competition on my course is different than putting in a store.
  2. My experience also with graphite vs steel. Also try not hit off mats!
  3. Do you have real sweaty hands on humid days? I do and I found the CP2 wrap slippery. I can’t imagine the Pro much better than the Wrap. I think a lot of grips work if you don’t sweat much. If you have a bad case only a few grips work.
  4. FWIW I will take two drivers out to a course when it isn’t busy. I’ll hit exact same ball with both drivers over several holes and compare the results with a laser. This is a real world comparison and how I compared the two flash models. CPO makes this easier with Callaway 1-2 year old models and then I return or trade in the loser. Drivers change very little year to year.
  5. I’m a 73 y/o year round club golfer with a 90ss and a hcp ranging 11-16 based on different courses and situations. I constantly find and are given premium balls including Pro V1, V1X, Tp5x etc. I’m conservative so I play these (don’t buy) and feel these 3 balls and some other premium balls are going to give me the stopping power into the greens I need and won’t differently effect my game much. Do you agree that at my level I’m not losing much from playing the same ball all the time like a Pro V1?
  6. I’m 73 and playing the best golf of my life since I started at 51; thanks to retirement and more golf time. I went to a Callaway demo day a few years ago and was fitted into a Epic Flash 10.5 45g Green Even Flow regular flex. Shortly after this I read the Mygolfspy article on drivers showing the favorite to be the Epic Flash Sub Zero. The fitter never tried this head probably based on my 90 mph swing. I did see slower swingers we’re also doing well with this head so I traded my driver for the Sub Zero. I’m finding slightly longer drives I’m assuming from less spin but also straighter drives. i play year round in Naples and Columbus and find trajectory needs to change based on the changing course conditions. Now that the fairways are drying out a lower drive is a longer drive.

  12. Seasoned does sound better than super senior! What I like about golf is if you start late you can continue to improve and compensate for a trending slower swing speed.
  13. I’m 71 and still (slowly) improving since starting at 51. Currently working on many things, however my number one goal is to get a consistent in to out swing providing a small draw. I feel if I can accomplish this for my go to shot I will score lower.
  14. Just had a very interesting golf match in our Old Pals single elimination tournament. My partner and I are 71 with a 14 handicap and made it through the qualifier in the middle of the pack. Our first match we were against two 30 y/O’s with a 1 and 3 handicap. We stayed to our game plan and were 4 holes up after 12 and feeling good. The youngsters picked away and used their length and club speed to their advantage. On the 17th they both drove a small green 280y away in a valley with creek in front. One was 8’ away and just missed eagle. I think the old bodies were taking they toll and the youngsters were strong. They tied match on 18 and took their first lead on 19 for the win. I was disappointed but enjoyed the entertainment of seeing what high swing speed can do to a ball flight. I started at 51 and never experience that type of distance. Time is running short but there always is next year!
