  1. I love being outdoors and playing a sport. I am too old to play the sports I did growing up, so golf allows me to be competitive, but also enjoy the outdoors. I know I will never play professionally, so I never let a bad shot bother me, I always reality check and say I am just lucky to be out here having fun. "A glorified walk in the park" some say.
  2. My AW is 49 and apart of my iron set (needed the extra forgiveness for the longer shots), so I added a 54 S grind for more of a straight back half and full swing shot, and a 58 K grind high bounce for bunkers and rough lies around the green. The 58 has been a life saver and minimized my duffs big time with that grind and bounce set up.
  3. Usually a 5 hybrid will go 10-15 further than your 5 iron. In my set up I have a 5 hybrid as my next club after my 5 iron in my gapping. A 4 hybrid might produce too much of a gap which I found out. Test out some 4 and 5's to see what distances fit your gapping best, like @cnosil said, don't worry about the lofts as much as the distances they go. I am a high handicap so I have similar set up to you. My 4 hybrid gets close distances to my 5 wood, so that gets taken out or used in different situations, like in thicker rough my 5 wood might not get through. I had to go to a Simulator to work out my rough distances.
  4. Wow, great set up! Love the putter
  5. Interesting responses. I also have an issue of gripping too hard, it does seem weird to swing something so fast and not grip it to death. I usually pull the shots to the left when I do. I have looked at some YouTube videos that offer some tips, hold the club in the air in front of you, and make sure the club moves easily and not restricted, or they say 6/10 pressure. I have to constantly remind myself on the course and when practicing to stop gripping it hard. The idea of changing the thickness of the grip never crossed my mind. I might have a play around with that to see if that helps me too. Thanks everyone.
  6. Not paying enough attention to the ball slightly on a hill going up or down. The obvious ones where the ball is way above or below my feet I make the adjustments, but the ones where it is even with my feet and I am on a slight down slop on a hill, I need to pay more attention and not thin it (downhill). It is the slight adjustments that I need to work on more. I need to focus on more aspects of my where my ball is and not just the type of rough I am in.
  7. I buy from them all the time, always great quality. Never any issues.
  8. Interesting, I get no clicks. I will get a replacement tool. Thanks
  9. I added loft and a draw setting on my hybrid Epic Flash, all the examples say there should be a click to stop over tightening. Mine doesn't click, it is on solid but is there a chance I have screwed it too tight, and if so what is the ramifications for doing so?
  10. Not sure how legit these products are but Amazon has one called this "Technasonic Check-Go Pro Sweet Spot Electronic Golf Ball Liner" I have seen some gadgets out there that finds the center of the ball for you.
  11. I did the same thing, dropped my 50 degree Vokey for the AW to match my set. So much more consistent on approach shots.
  12. I had the Epic Flash 3 wood. I had to retire it, it was too hot sometimes and with my swing being inconsistent the distances were too far between my shortest to my longest. Great club but didn't suit my ability.
