  1. Graham ; Chicago, IL RH Driving Iron 18* - KBS Tour V Stiff +0.7 index Currently play Titleist U500 21* with HZRDUS Smoke Stiff shaft
  2. Just ordered SM8 in raw finish as well. I think the rust is hard to avoid over time. I think the raw finish will actually make the wedges last slightly longer than chrome due to them not having a coating that will wear and make the grooves dull faster.
  3. I played dormie recently. You can still play, but have to book through their partners. (Talamore and tabacco road, I think).
  4. I have a sunday bag that I like bc of how lightweight it is for an evening 9, casual round, par 3 course, etc... Does anyone have good recommendations for lightweight bags with stands. My only gripe with my sunday bag is that there is no stand and sometimes in the morning or after rain will get wet when I have to lay it down. Thanks!
  5. The best way to spend a weekday evening. IMO
  6. Indeed. I bet if you get it refurbished by Scotty you could turn a pretty solid profit. Maybe even better than if you sold it in current condition. I think it cost ~ $290 for full refurbish. New shaft, grip, remilled, paint job, etc...
  7. This is also a good point. I think there are definitely advantages to both an kinda depends on the course you are playing.
  8. I like the rangefinder. It is very useful when laying up on par 5s and playing strategically to your numbers for approach shots. If you have your yardages dialed in, it is nice to know the exact numbers that you're playing to, especially when you get close to the green.
  9. I got fitted for a driver this year and had shaft cut to 44.5". It feel much shorter than my old driver (46"), but I have found that I have much more control and didn't lose any distance with a shaft that is fitted correctly. I would recommend a fitting and playing around with it.
  10. I am think of getting a 3 wood this year. Have always had 5 wood, but think that it makes sense to have the 3 wood off the tee. 5 wood isn't used that often bc I am trying to play smart instead of going for greens from 250+. How much harder would you say the 3 wood is to hit off the deck?
  11. Definitely worth a trip to Sweetens. Great place. The course at Sewanee is also there and I've heard is worth a trip if you're in the area.
  12. For instruction I like athletic motion golf (AMG) and the golf room. For original content, you can't go wrong with No Laying Up and the Fried Egg Golf.
  13. I am intrigued by the new Ben Hogan U-Hi. Has anyone hit this iron yet?
  14. In Pinehurst, I love pine needles and mid pines. I've heard that Asheville has some decent courses, like the Omni resort course. In the Raleigh NC area I'd play some of the University courses, like the Duke course and UNC Finley Course.
  15. Thanks. I need to create an account!
  16. Will do! I know that area has a bunch of good golf and some nice resorts as well.
  17. I think it depends. I have been trying to get more serious about my golf game and trying to play in competitions. I recently got a new driver with the new VA Nemesys shaft. It is a mid-high launch, low spin shaft, which is not easy to find in any stock shaft. Most low spin shafts are also low launch, so this made a big difference for me with driver, being someone who has a negative angle of attack with all of my clubs.
  18. Oh I see, wow. Thanks. That is a good deal, but most likely won't be able to take the trip that far out of Boise.
  19. In the Chicagoland area: Chicago GC Shoreacres Old Elm Onwentsia Skokie CC Olympia Fields CC Beverly CC Bob O Link Medinah CC Butler National
  20. I'd have to give this to Whistling Straits. I can not imagine trying to play that golf course from the tips with the wind blowing a little bit. Overall I enjoyed the course, but a few holes seems a little contrived to me. The 18th is an uphill par 4 with a >200 yard forced carry on the second shot. From the back tee is upwards of 500 yards.
  21. Everyone is walking now with the covid pandemic, but I am noticing a trend towards walking at some higher end resorts, like Bandon Dunes and Sand Valley. There are also a number of private clubs around Chicago that have very good caddie programs and require walking unless you are disabled.
  22. I play a Pro-V1, but have thought about how much money I may be wasting by doing so. Does anyone know of a golf ball testing website or service that can fit you for some brands that might be best?
  23. I have some work coming up later this year in Boise. What are some other good options, if any for golf in the area? Nice review!
  24. I think Grand Rapids, MI is a great option. Interesting city with a number of fantastic breweries. Minor league sports. And some very reasonable golf courses. Pilgrims Run, Stoatin Brae, The Mines, and Diamond Springs are all nice.
