    I had an original epic 3 wood, the face caved in. Total bummer cause I loved that club. Callaway was awesome and sent me a new Epic Flash 3 wood. It was inconsistent IMO compared to the my other 3 wood. I Sold it to a buddy of mine and he likes it.

    Callaway Epic Flash 3 wood gone - PING G425 Max 5 Wood in - Couldn't hit the 3 wood to save my life. 
    Put the AW from my set back in for the Vokey 50 degree, and that meant I had to change my wedges to match better, 54 for versatile shots and full swing, and a 58 k grind for tough bunker shots and fluffy lies.  
    As my game is far from being great, I needed to settle for more forgiving options.

    I like this idea a lot. Might combine the two and grab a ball from each course and write best score/date on the back.

    I got one of those golf ball wall displays and will put a ball from the course and any special balls in there. (I.e. lowest score, first eagle etc) it’s in the man cave so it brings up a lot of conversation with friends who golf

    Anybody have any great ideas for unique souvenirs/collectors items from courses they've played. Not trying to spend a ton of money so I've started just grabbing a ball marker from each new course I play. I also had the idea to keep a collection of completed scorecard of my best round at each course I play. So even including courses I play a bunch if I shoot my best round there, that scorecard replaces the previous one. Anyone have any handy ideas for storing/displaying scorecards?

    Nateyeight got a reaction from M. Parsons in how often do you use 58* for partial shots?   
    I have a 58 K grind with high bounce for bunker shots and deep lies around the green, the grind helps me get out of trouble. I then have a 54 S grind mid bounce for the shots from 50-80 out. S grind allows me to have a more straight back and through swing.

    What % of the time do you think you'd use it for partial shots as opposed to bunker/chip/pitch/flop shots?

    I went to the range last night with my new Swing Caddie... confirming my suspicions... really really low swing speed.  (Not that I'm surprised... first culprit for distance is swing speed in the the equation).  But I have at least one thing to work on... improving my 85 mph average to something in the mid-90's (driver speed... which should also increase my speeds for irons, improving their distance too).  From there - work on technique (with a coach most likely).

    Bought it in high school with the money I saved up for myself. First club I ever bought myself. Not sure there will ever be a situation where it leaves the bag. Probably need to get it refinished.

    Agree with the above. I purchased the PING Driver, downloaded the app, then scanned the QR code on the shaft with my phone, and then selected the option for the free sensors. It is a 90 day free trial, then $99 for the year subscription.

    This whole thread finally got me to just pull the trigger on a fairway wood/hybrid fitting... currently my 21 degree 4 hybrid (R15) goes further than my 16.5 degree 4-wood (epic speed)... so hard to justify even keeping the 4-wood in the bag when I only hit it once every 8-10 rounds. I will post results from the fitting. I find with my driver distance I rarely need anything bigger than my hybrid (225 yd avg hit over last 5 rnds).

    I think the problem (lack of love) is simply that the ratio of recharge time to mileage range is still too low... oh, wait, wrong hybrid 😆.  My personal experience is that I haven't (as yet) found them as hittable as say a 7w or 9w. I really tried the PING out a couple years ago at a Demo Day but they just didn't work for me - just not as consistent.  That said, I play with some guys who have a bag full of them.

    I am not, I had a 3 wood Epic Flash. Maybe I can experiment with a 5 or 7 wood, I just struggle more with the sweeping swing than I do with the hybrid being close to an iron swing. Thanks for the advice. I will add a 5 and 7 wood in my testing to see how they stack up to a 3 hybrid.

    Are you carrying any fairway woods at all?  You may get what you're looking for with a newer model 5 wood (which is really a 4 wood) and/or a 7 wood - just because you struggled with 3 wood doesn't mean you can't hit or won't hit fairways well.  Hate to complicate things but it does give you more options to accomplish your goal.
