  1. I am 17 years old and am going to be competing at the collegiate level after high school. I am looking at getting some new irons soon. I swing the club decently fast and hit the ball plenty far enough. Any suggestions??
  2. Hi all. I'm new here. Largely drawn to the site due to the fact that this is one of the most truthful, "down-to-Earth" golfing forums I could find (I'm being forcibly humble here, it is easily the best). Product reviews remind me somewhat of Top Gear, but without the cars, the same people, the studio, the guest sections and add golf. So it's not like Top Gear at all. Trust me, I know what I mean. Blunt, unbiased feedback. Anywho, this brings me onto my question for the day. I am relatively new to the game, and I am 19 years old. I am also, like 98% of new golfers, now in the market for a set of game-improving irons. Looking to go even more mainstream than that, and grab myself something TaylorMade too. Been looking at both the TM Speedblade, and the TM M2 irons. I am unsure as to which one I should purchase. Everything I can find on the Speedblade says they are very good, and everything I can find on the M2 says they are very good also. But, I'm not sure whether due to technological advancements, what is a "very good" club now, would have been a "stupidly incredible amazing" club if they'd been around at the same time as the Speedblade clubs. So, I am curious if anyone has hit both and to let me know some key differences/recommendations, or if anybody has some key points in regards to these two irons also. Please keep money/cost out of the equation. Regardless of which I purchase, I'll be taking the same lessons at the same course with the same trainer. Just curious which clubs would carry more benefit for me. Regards, and thanks for reading my novel, Daniel.
  3. Greetings Ya'll, I need assistance getting Dick's to stand behind their error. They ruined my mixed set of Titleist 718 irons and 3 SM6 Vokey wedges. -My Wife and I live in Michigan full time. We are in Clermont Florida temporarily while I attend classes at the Golf Academy of America, Orlando Campus. I am 47, retired as a Major from the Army after 25 years of service. I am going to school to become a Teaching Professional. -A large part of the course work is actually playing the game. I need golf clubs on a daily basis to receive a grade. -I purchased a new set of irons, a Titleist 718 mixed set. 4-7 AP2. 8-P CB. They were professionally fit in Michigan before starting class on October 23rd. In addition to the irons, I purchased 3 Vokey SM6 wedges. 48, 54, 58. All the shafts are upgraded True Temper shafts. Total Cost is approximately $2000 dollars. -I was scheduled to participate in a golf tournament on November 6, 2017. The course, Venetian Bay, is in Port Orange, Florida. On November 5, 2017, my wife and I left Clermont for the tournament. I have been working on gapping my clubs. On our way out of town, we stopped at Dick's Sporting Goods in Clermont, FL. I stopped to have the licensed club fitter, Jim, adjust the lofts of all 10 clubs. The most any club was to be adjusted was 2 degrees. He adjusted them, we paid for them, and we continued on to the hotel in Port Orange. -After checking in, my wife and I went to a driving range. I always warm up with my wedges. I grabbed my 58 and discovered it looked more like a 4 iron. I don't know how he did it. But he managed to bend all of clubs in the range of about 10 degrees apiece. I was devastated. We went to Bob Evans for ice cream and to ponder my options. I found a Dick's in Daytona about 7 miles from us. We made it to the store just before closing. I grabbed the 3 SM6 wedges and showed them to the club fitter Gary. He couldn't even get them in his loft machine at first. He was able to bend them back close to the point they resembled a wedge. Gary couldn't figure out how Jim could have done it. I asked him to look at all of them. He couldn't because the store was closing. The manager of the store apologized profusely. -I played in the tournament and shot a 102 with a bag full of 4 irons. On Tuesday, I showed them to a Pro at school. He told me they were completely ruined. He sent me to the club repair lab to show them to J.D., J.D. is the school's club fitter. He checked my 6 iron. It was supposed to be 31 degrees. It was 22 degrees. He gathered the class that was about to start to illustrate what happens to a golf club when you bend them wrong. He told me to go back to Dick's and ask them to replace them. All of the clubs were ruined. - I took the clubs back to Dick's. I asked for a manager. Zach and Ken were both some sort of intermediary managers. They went to a back room to determine how to proceed. The store manager and golf manager were not in at the time. They couldn't get ahold of them. They don't carry Titleist Clubs. I told them I need golf clubs for school. Ken did his best to get them back to stock measurement until a decision was made in the morning when the other 2 were back in the office. Ken told me to snap one of the heads off and then Titleist would replace them. He told me that I would receive a call by 10AM. I called the store at about 4 on Wednesday because I hadn't heard from them. I eventually talked to Jim the guy that ruined them. He denied it, of course. Zach, the assistant I talked to the day before, eventually called me back. He finally reached the store manager. The store manager is not going to replace them. They said they would send them to Titleist to have them evaluated. This is a problem. I need clubs every day. I had to purchase a set of Mizuno irons and wedges through the school. They offer a school discount. They don't have an account with Titleist. I can't afford a set of Titleist irons from a retail store. They should be in this week so I can turn in the Titleist clubs to Dicks. - I expect to receive new Titleist 718 irons from Dicks and to be reimbursed for the irons I had to buy to participate in school. Any assistance you can provide would be appreciated. Best, Brian Bonney
  4. I need to know if anybody knows around what year these are or has any information on them. Are they worth anything? I haven't been able to find another set anywhere.
  5. Alright Spies... I need help! Picked up these LONG wands at the thrift store for $3.00 a piece. Online info about 'Masterpiece Custom Golf' is non-existent save for their prior membership within the Dike, Iowa Chamber of Commerce. The finish on both putters is beautiful with fantastic face milling. It blows my mind that a small club company put out such exemplary work and then seemingly folded up into oblivion. Have any of you ever seen/heard of this company? The "mallet" is an SSP (Side Saddle Putter) setup; i.e. pitching horseshoes or washers. The "blade", labeled 'Locknrock', is damn near 5' long. The procedure with this broomstick involves tucking it under your left armpit and rocking your shoulders; completely taking your hands out the stroke. I have played around with them on the putting green; the balance, feel and roll off the face is incredible on both models. I have also discovered the 'Locknrock' can be setup on my left forearm, a la the Bettinardi - Kuchar Model 1 Arm Lock, subsequently passing the anchor ban test. Thanks in advance for the input, fellow Spies!
  6. Who's got a GoPro? Thought we could start a thread and share tips to help each other out. I got Nidine one for Christmas and we've been getting some use out of it so far (well I have ). I got an iPad Mini and using iMovie to edit has been a breeze. Here's a couple samples of what I've produced so far.
  7. Hello all, I have been playing golf for the better part of 15 years, however I have never taken the sport seriously until the last two years or so. One thing I have noticed being out on the course alot more and playing with different people every time (my buddies don't play so I walk one as a single), is that there is a lot of questionable theories, tips, legends, and strategies. So I hoping that you could share what you have heard over the years and what has actually worked and what was more Bullsh*t. It would be good to learn what to ignore out there and what to take as sound advice. Some of the things that have come to mind are: -Tee it up lower and hit it straight but shorter. (seen results) -Greens break towards ocean on seaside courses and away from mountains on desert courses. -Hitting the net next to a tee box is a redo. (might be course rules) -The pros play balls unavailable to the public. These are just a few that I can think of right now. so lets hear yours and the answers to these to help wade through the BS Many Thanks
