  1. I was just starting to break into the 80s on a regular basis which felt good. I wanted to take some lessons to fix a few things and perhaps elevate the game even further. Long story short the lessons broke me completely. I was at a point a few months ago that I almost considered giving up the game. It was that bad. Any tips on regaining the swing and some confidence?
  2. PW is 45, then I have a 52, 56 and 58. Full swing 52 carries 120-5 yds, 56 carries 100 yds, 58 carries 80 yds. I use them around the green depending on the lie and circumstances.
  3. Half Dollar from the year I was born.
  4. I would say don't go in with an ide of exactly what you want. Let the fitter help you with finding the right club. The numbers and how you feel swinging them won't lie.
  5. Putting is so so personal. What grip, what stance, where are our eyes???? So many thoughts. The only tip that has ever helped me was the one Gary Player gave his grandson, keep your head still through the stroke.
  6. Tough to tell without seeing the lie. If I get a flier lie might be a 7 iron. If it isn't a good lie I punch it out with something like a 5 iron and get it as close as I can while taking my medicine. If it is really horrific maybe just a wedge and suck it up.
  7. Wishing you luck. When these pop up on Ebay they go for about $1000
  8. I have the 699 Pros 4-PW with KBS Tour 120 Stiff shafts and I love love love these clubs! The ball flight is incredible.
  9. I recently purchased a set of 699 Pros, 4-PW and love them! KBS Tour 120 stiff shafts. Worked with a local fitter to get my specs down, called Jason at Sub70 and we worked out the details. I have gotten them out on the course 3 times so far. The ball flight is incredible. Really enjoying them so far.
  10. Bridgestone Tour BXS for me! Started using them last year and have tried a few others but keep coming back to them.
  11. I would say do a demo with the clubs to try them out. The fitting certainly is going to help.
  12. I recently broke into the 80s with some consistency and felt like the time was right for me to make that next leap. This felt like a natural step and I am very glad I took it. Before the deep freeze settled in I was able to hit the 9, 6 and 4 on the range and I love them! KBS Tour 120 shafts, plus 1 degree lie and 1/4" longer shafts.
  13. Pulled the trigger on Sub 70 699 Pro irons. Jason, the CEO was very helpful. I went through a local fitting, gave him the numbers and we settled in. Have only hit them on the range so far but love them!
  14. I used to like the Kirkland Signature when it first came out. After the updates it just felt a little dead and I lost a lot of distance with the new version.
  15. 2.0 you say?? I liked the original balls, the next version not so much. Lost a lot of distance. Will have to see how these are.
  16. If you are losing a lot of balls and just starting out you might try a used ball web site. Find the ball you like and get some mint or near mint in the kind you like. You can generally buy them in bulk, they are slightly cheaper and you don't feel as bad about losing them. Once your game gets better and you are not losing them as much you can jump up to the brand new. Just a thought.
  17. I just started playing the Bridgestone B XS and I love it. Getting some incredible distance out of it and it really sticks on the greens for me. I will say with chips I am having to adjust a little because it checks up a lot stronger than other balls I have played.
  18. How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score? Been playing seriously about 12-13 years. Handicap is about 18. What do you love about golf? I like being outside and I like the mental aspect of a physical sport. You learn a lot about forgetting mistakes and moving on. What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies? I love the information they provide and the testing. Where are you from? What is your home course? Manhattan, KS. Don't really have a home course, but I play Colbert Hills, Wildcat Creek and Rolling Meadows. What are the best and worst things about golf in your region? Best: Lots of great courses and not too expensive. Doesn't take long to drive to play. Worst: The rough is pretty penal here in terms of balls flat out disappearing and the winters are rough. What do you do for a living? Human Resources. How’d you pick your user name? Just one I use. No special meaning.
  19. Jay Manhattan, KS I used to have a really large backyard net. It was great but it was too cumbersome to put up and use so I ended up selling it. It also took up too much space. I have never used a launch monitor.
  20. Jay/ Manhattan KS Right Handed 18* - KBS Tour 90 Regular Backup-18* - KBS Tour V Stiff Handicap-16 Do you currently play a Long Iron or Hybrid-I am dying to play a long iron. Have been looking and testing a variety but have not settled on one yet. I currently have a Nike Vapor 3 hybrid, but really want to try a driving iron. I actually looked at the Hogan website at their long irons and did a little research.
  21. Jay/Manhattan, KS Handicap 16 Taylor Made ATV Grind 52 and 58. Tour Edge 56. My Taylor Made wedges are chrome finish and honestly I am not a fan of the shiny finish when I approach the ball. Like the performance but the finish is ok. My Tour Edge sand wedge has been with me a while and see better days but it is my 100 yard club. Raw is interesting to me as I have never owned a club with that finish and curious about how it will hold up. Also wonder about performance.
  22. Jay/Manhattan, KS/USA Current putter is Odyssey White Hot #9 Curious about the ZB3. I have never used another putter the entire time I have played golf.
  23. 16 Handicap in Kansas. Currently using Nike VRS irons, seriously due for an upgrade. Been considering getting fit for irons for some time. 8 iron is 150-155 Honestly I have not heard of Sub 70 before reading some things on Mygolfspy. I am open to new and different and always kind of liked pushing against the grain a bit in terms of brand or what's popular.
