  1. Don't forget about the good senior players when testing players equipment

  2. This is pretty cool, and I'm sure we'll get some saying $260 plus for a wedge is ridiculously expensive, but again, it's not being force on anyone, it's an option that has in the past only been available to the most elite players in the world, that is now available to anyone wanting to buy the service. Press Release: Master Craftsman Bob Vokey is now offering the tour grinding experience to all golfers through the introduction of the new HandGround program on Vokey.com. For golfers seeking tour-level customizations such as additional heel relief, a squared up leading edge, or Bob’s popular tour grind, the HandGround program is the answer. For the last year, Bob has personally trained two grinders on all of the performance and profile adjustments that have resulted from his more than two decades of work with the world’s best players. Bob’s passion for building relationships with individual players is the essence of the Vokey brand. Voke takes the time to listen to a player’s wants and, more importantly, their needs, when hitting wedge shots. He then takes this information back to the tour truck and starts grinding heads. The process can be lengthy, but when it is done right, it is worth the wait. Bob will oversee the entire HandGround process – located in a new workspace adjacent to the Titleist Tour Department, inside the Titleist Golf Club headquarters in Carlsbad, Calif. – and, from time to time, will also grind HandGround orders himself. QUOTING BOB VOKEY: “This takes me back to my roots - one player at a time, one wedge at a time, crafting the sole to the player's exact specifications.” HANDGROUND OPTIONS: In selecting the HandGround option – currently available on all Vokey SM7 Raw models, the preferred finish of tour players worldwide – golfers will be able to choose from a variety of performance and profile adjustments (two adjustments maximum). • Performance adjustments: As course conditions change, tour players make adjustments to their wedges to improve turf interaction by grinding material off the sole of the wedge. These grinds allow the player to change the wedge’s playing characteristics based on their unique swingtype and course conditions resulting in finely tuned performance. Performance adjustments include: - Pre-Worn Leading Edge - Smooth Grind Lines - Heel Relief - Trailing Edge Relief • Profile adjustments: Having the right head shape inspires confidence. Voke works with tour players to dial-in the head shape that fits each player’s eye. Profile adjustments allow the golfer to design a confidence-inspiring head shape by grinding material off the profile. Profile adjustments include: - Semi-Square Leading Edge - Thin Top Line - Tour Grind (smooths all profile lines & slightly reduces profile size) For detailed explanations of each performance and profile adjustment, click here: https://www.vokey.com/nav/handground.aspx HANDGROUND SETS: With F, K and L Grind wedges, golfers also have the option to make specific grind selections:
 - F Grind: Make it an S Grind. For example, golfers that prefer their 52.12 F gap wedge to have a touch more versatility greenside may enjoy this option. - K Grind: Make it a J Grind (Heel & trailing edge relief) - L Grind: Make it an A Grind (Smooth the grind lines) ON THE WEB: https://www.vokey.com/nav/handground.aspx AVAILABILITY: HandGround wedges are now available on all SM7 Raw models through Vokey.com. SM7 Raw wedges – including BV Wings grip and 10-character stamping – start at $195. There is an additional $75 charge for HandGround services.
  3. For Sale: Taylormade P790s 4-PW, X100s (straight in, not tipped). MSRP: $1214.50 Sale Price: $799.99 (plus shipping cost) Order Details: Lie Angle: 2.5° flat Length: 1/4" short of standard Loft: Ordered these 2 degrees weak in Loft (didn't like the super strong lofts as these irons are already plenty long!) 4 Iron: 23 5 Iron: 25.5 6 Iron: 28.5 7 Iron: 32.5 8 Iron: 37 9 Iron: 42 PW: 47 (adjusted to 46°) I ordered these directly from Taylormade and have a copy of the order receipt. Condition: 9.9 out of 10 I played 3 rounds with these irons and took them to the range once. Irons are in great shape and the only irons I hit at the range were the 6, 7, and PW a few times (see pictures). I currently have AP2s and Callaway Apex Pros, and these were much easier to hit. They are incredibly forgiving for a players iron, and have a great shape. I'm looking to sell these because I don't need the extra distance and I have 3 sets of irons currently . The awesome thing about these irons is not losing hardly any distance with mishits, they are very easy to hit. Contact me via text: 715-225-8048 Payment: PayPal Only
  4. Imagine you're on the first tee. Ready to pull the driver. What could give you more confidence than looking in your bag at a picture of Dustin Johnson sending one 350 yards down the fairway, or make you smile more than a picture of your son or daughter taking their first steps, or the sunset of the 18th hole at Pebble Beach. Well Sunfish is now making it possible to have any of those memorable photo's professionally placed on it's genuine leather head-covers. Check out the link with all the info here as well as seeing some examples below. https://www.sunfishsales.com/ The ideas are endless.
  5. Cheers all! I am a new golfer (~ 2 years of non-serious golfing) so I have no real handicap (if you twist my arm, I'll say I'm around +28-38). I still game a Top-Flite beginner's box set, but I've started branching out a little for various reasons. I have added a Mizuno JPX 800 5i (I have a mental issue hitting hybrids, and found myself often in 5i/5h range), a Cleveland 56 Satin Black wedge (broke the Top Flite on the driving range -- not from a bad hit!!!) and TM spyder (red, no sightline) putter. I plan on getting fitted for some GI gear next year, so until then, I will just drool over all the different sets out there and wonder which is the best for me. Meanwhile, my question(s) revolve around the putter. Specifically, I went in to try a few different ones, and came away with the TM just edging out an Evnroll ER2. I came away from that shopping experience knowing that I have a *slight* arc to my putt. I still intend to get truly fitted for a putter when I do the fitting next year. However, I am a little confused/anxious about it, simply because, while there is (IMHO) way too much diversity in putters out there, I'm trying to sift through/learn all the putter ling. I'm wondering: a - Why do certain putters only come face-balanced, or counterbalanced, or have varying degrees of toe hang? Why does a company decide to build a specific putter with 30 degrees vs 28 vs 38, etc.? b - Say (for example) I really like the look and feel of an Evnroll ER8 putter and love the groove tech, but it's specs do not suit my putting style (i.e. I need a putter with 30-40 degrees of toe hang, but the ER8 only comes with 28 degrees of toe hang). Is it possible to customize it so that I get my ideal toe hang? c - Why do some putter specs list toe hang in degrees, while others list it as 1/4, 1/2, 3/4, full, and what do those ratings equate to in degrees? d - How do the different necks affect a putter? e - How does the shafting (i.e. center-shafted or otherwise) affect a putter? My head is spinning more than my golf ball off the tee... Duffer E
  6. Get ready to blow an hour or two... Scotty Cameron has announced a new Custom Shop tool to tweak and personalize your Cameron putter. This is nothing really new, as Mr. Cameron has had some kind of interface online in the Custom Shop for some time. That tool was a little clunky though as you had to click all over the place to make sure you hit all of the spots for paint and stamps. This new tool seems much more user friendly. Now all of the options are on the left margin, and require just a few clicks to update and customize your putter. It's a fun little diversion for the day. If you don't have time to goof with it right now, I'll give you my initial takes. It is easy to use, and works great if you have a newer Cameron to work with. My old Tel3 Newport Long Neck was not in the new fancy system, though it could still be customized. Full restoration is now $290! Maybe I missed this, but didn't it used to be a ton cheaper? Like $150 and that included a new grip and headcover. As for grips and headcovers... Custom Shop Only headcovers and grips are not as cool as they once were. Gone are the Custom Shop only grips and headcovers. Sure, there are some in the system only available through the shop, but I always liked the simple Custom Shop grips of various colors. Not many, if any, grip and headcover combos. I always wanted to go grip-headcover-shaft band all in purple or orange. Not available. If you want a $50 metal shaft band, you can have one. Odd thing is that not all of the paintfill colors are available on the shaft bands. If you have an orange theme running through your putter, you'll not be able to select orange shaft band. ​It's insanely expensive. Take a look at the screen shot that I came up with from playing with the system. Total customization price: $492, and that doesn't include the original putter. I'm one of the last people to ****** about how expensive golf equipment is, especially custom putters, but FFS that's outlandish. You can send a putter to Putter Lounge or other refinishing folk for a fraction of that and all you'll miss are the Cameron Shop bands and such. Maybe I'm off base on this, but it's almost offensively expensive now. Thoughts? Anyway, feel free to check out the new system and let me know what you think. Am I way off in my assessment? Is there something that I have missed valuewise, or do you agree that the price boost seems over the top. Are the Custom Shop Only items enough to get your money? Do you think that the sun headcovers would be a hell of a lot better without the Camo? Seriously, why is 2017 Cameron's Camo year? I don't get it. This cover in various colors could have almost single handedly changed my attitude on the whole process. Anyway, what are your thoughts? Feel free to read the press release from Cameron below at your leisure. Custom Shop Creator on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UZm3QCR5eRs FAIRHAVEN, Mass. (Oct. 11, 2017) – In keeping with the idea that the putter is the most personal club in a golfer's bag, Master Putter Maker Scotty Cameron today introduced his new Custom Shop Creator – a state-of-the-art online putter customizer accessible through ScottyCameron.com. The Custom Shop Creator (www.scottycameron.com/customshop​) allows golfers to virtually personalize their Scotty Cameron putters like never before, instantly bringing their ideas to life through realistic high-resolution image renderings. Golfers then send their putters to Scotty's Custom Shop, housed at the Putter Studio in Southern California, where their customizations become a reality. “I created the Custom Shop to give passionate players a way to preserve, personalize and protect their putters for life,” Cameron said. “The Custom Shop Creator really takes the creative process to another level. From your desktop or mobile device, you can easily experiment with custom stampings, sight lines, different weights and paintfill. You can change the finish from silver to black. It just gives you that feel of a Tour-like experience and creating a one-of-a-kind design.” All putter models since 2014, plus many of Scotty's most popular prior models, are available in the new customizer for photo-realistic customization. Owners of older putter models will be seamlessly linked to Scotty Cameron's Classic Form, where an additional 100 putter models may be customized. Since 2004, Scotty Cameron has offered personalization, customization, authentication and restoration services in the Custom Shop. From specialty grips, headcovers and authentic accessories to stamps, initials, engraved weights and full restoration of years old, game-worn Scotty Cameron putters, the Custom Shop has provided golfers with a resource to not only customize an already-purchased putter, but to also authenticate and refurbish these valuable clubs. The new Custom Shop Creator introduces several new features: • Realistic renderings display vibrant representations of custom stamps, initials, sight lines, weights, finishes and more – including accurate depictions of Scotty's translucent and opaque paintfill colors – all in real-time as a user moves through the application. • Responsive design adapts to mobile and desktop devices providing users the flexibility to enter a Custom Shop order from anywhere. • Seamless workflow presents customization choices in an improved sequence more aligned with the way a customer would logically move through the process. • Quick links to popular models allow users to easily search and choose from existing putter types to move immediately into the customization process. • Save customizations feature – provides users with the option to create their custom putter at their own pace, saving within the application to finish later. • New Custom Shop-only accessories – added to the Custom Shop include new stamps, as well as 12 new headcovers, shaft bands, 15 new paint-filled shaft rings and new grips. PRICE AND AVAILABILITY: Full putter restoration, including choice of silver or black finish, is $290. Authentication is $75. New paint is $72. Grips range from $15-$57. Headcovers range from $35-$124. Loft and lie adjustments are free.

  7. Hi Everyone, I am a Professional based in Holland and have a company called Burley Golf Development. My work involves developing Coaching, Fitting & Equipment and I am interested in feedback and keeping up to date with new developments within the world of putting. Glad to be involved and I look forward to some interesting discussions! Stuart Burley
  8. So I've seen some neat looking stamps and paint fills on this site in the small amount of time I've been here but I'm a hopeless golf addict and love seeing all the different ways people make a club or even a whole set uniquely theirs and I know I'm not the only one. So I started this topic for people to proudly display their masterpieces, in hopes that everyone can enjoy these awesome projects and maybe even inspire others to put a personal flair to their gear. So have fun and may your drives find the short grass!
  9. I would like to ask you to take time out to answer a few questions for research purposes. 1, What putter do you use and why? 2, What are the specs of your putter? 3, How long have you been using the current putter in your bag? 4, Do you commit to a specific method? 5, How do you rate your putting performance on a scale of 1 to 10? I look forward to your responses
  10. For about a year now I have been looking at the 59 belt company and hesitant to pull the trigger on a buckle and strap but I just saw the MGS buckle in the store here and yea that is awesome. Does anyone have any feedback on the buckles finishes and how they hold up over a season? I have a white on white puma belt now that seems to have yellowed a little in the buckle finish. Still white but not like it was when I bought it.
  11. I read a lot here on the Forum about clubs people own or want to buy. I'd say aside from the putter all I ever read about is guys buying TaylorMade, Callaway, Titleist, Cobra, Adams, Cleveland, Nike, Mizuno, Ping, etc. That leads me to think that most people buy what's in front of them. You can't walk into a typical golf retail store and find anything other than Major brand products. I rarely see guys in the Forum talk about or even say they use custom clubs such as KZG, Alpha, Maltby, Wishon, Bang, Miura, Fourteen, Epon, etc, etc. (These are not clones) I never hear anyone say they're even considering such a purchase. Why is that? I think part of it is because most people play off the rack (OTR). Perhaps it's because you don't think the quality is high. Could it be because most people don't want to spend the time to find and avail themselves of a custom club fitter? Taking the time to research and test custom designed clubs isn't as easy as walking into a Dick's or Golf Galaxy and plopping down some cash. Custom designed and fitted clubs can be expensive. But not always depending on the chosen brand. So, who plays custom brands?
  12. So I have been searching for a headcover for my 3W that matches my personality..... I should have known I would never find one. So I began researching and came across an article about turning a stuffed animal into a head cover. Genius, First off that is pretty much what the Daphene and other headcovers are. So I found a Stuffed animal I got when I was last in Iceland. IBV is a local sports complex and they are most known for their soccer club. The puffin is Iceland trademark pretty much. I started very carefully pulling it apart seem by seem until I had an opening big enough. I pulled out about a grocery bag full of stuffing ( which seemed like a lot but it kept coming out and out and out). Below is the test fit to make sure the 3W fits comfortably on the Headcover and then in my bag. So far so good! Next up is lining the inside and adding a shaft protector to the bottom. I will update as I go along.
  13. Here are a few photos of custom work Custom Brown Alligator Custom Black Alligator We recently created these for our talented friends down under.
  14. In case you didn't know, BestGrips offers custom embroidery for putter covers! These Custom Puttershoes are 100% your design. They start at $65 (Major Leaguer) and go up based on material, however, there are no minimum orders, hidden fees, set up fees, or digitization fees. That's right $65 for 100% custom, genuine leather, made in the USA, made to order, and insane turnaround times! You can buy your own custom creation here, and since it's over $50 you can get free shipping for the time being by using "golfspy" at checkout. Here are some examples:
  15. If you follow BestGrips on facebook and twitter, you are aware that we have been looking for a decent golf bag for sometime. Most of the options out there are extremely expensive and are not made to last. A few months of research led me to Club Glove, which I firmly believe is neither cheaply made or outrageously priced. With that said, BestGrips is evaluating customized bags for the 2014 season. You would pick the color of the Club Glove bag, and BestGrips will customize the three panels with embroidery, or leather/exotic inlay. The option will be the FCO III Cart bag and possibly the Billboard Bag. I like the color options offered by Club Glove, especially the use of black as the base color (never, never, never get a white bag!). As with all things BestGrips, the bags will be priced insanely competitive. All of the services (including golf grips) we offer are priced below market because the internet means no middle men and consequently no middle man or distributor fees. Look for more info sometime in Q1 or Q2 of next year (if extremely interested, contact me direct).
  16. Let me get straight to the point. 3 extremely big things are coming to BestGrips in the next 6 weeks. They range from kinda neat, to really cool, and finally game changing. For the last month and a half I have been diligently working on the game changer and not much else. Unfortunately, this has caused an undesired absence from my online presence. This will be paid off in large dividends in the future. The first thing will be unveiled in the next 2 weeks. It's the really cool secret that I can't talk about. I get asked about this all the time and I'm really excited to finally have an answer that I've never been able to provide. The second thing that's kinda neat is the final launch of the new website. I know, you've probably heard me say this several times, but the snowball is tumbling down the mountain and picking up speed. The website will be live in 2-4 weeks. YAY!!!! It's going to be super sleek and ultra-modern (just like our grips!). The final thing is the game changer. Can't talk about it at all, so don't ask any questions. It's a game changer, it's coming in less than 6 weeks, and I'm ecstatic about it! While I'm sad that I haven't been around in my usual capacity I am not at all sorry. BestGrips just had two record breaking months in a row and I am the busiest I've ever been. I've always said that it is easy to succeed when you are selling a superior product, however, we could not achieve the growth we've had, without the incredible support from customers and fans. I assure you that we will continue to make it easy to choose BestGrips, the best grips and headcovers in golf! Albert P.S. - What to take away from this: 3 things coming in 6 weeks that range from kinda neat, and really cool, to game changing BOOM! We just had two record breaking months in a row Couldn't do it without our fans and customers Play lots of golf because... winter is coming
