    Ben Hogan

    The Ben Hogan golf company and brand must be one of the most exciting prospects this decade to emerge from golf recently (I’m very fond of PXG too, but price point puts them out of reach for the average Joe). Just to confuse things, I game Mizuno and Titleist...
  2. I’m delighted, my Mizuno custom fit order (UK order) has arrived after only three weeks. I guess I must have been lucky with the components I’ve chosen They are Mizuno MP20 HMB 4 & 5 irons and MP20 MMC 6 iron to PW. With KBS C Taper Lite 110 Stiff shafts one inch longer than standard with Lamkin ST+2 Hybrid midsize grips +4 tapes. Standard lie but lofts 2 degrees weaker than standard (making the 7 iron 34 degrees). The excitement Mizuno Swing DNA gadget did recommend the C Taper Lite X Stiff, but as I’m getting older I tried the stiff against the x stiff and couldn’t tell the difference, so went with the “softer” shaft hoping it’ll last me a few more years into my senior golfing. Fingers crossed, all seems good so far. I’ve just had my first game with them and loved them and the course - one of my favourite courses in the UK - Woodhall Spa, the Hotchkin course. Looking forward to many more games to come

    New irons!

    After 12 years of my current set (Ping S57’s) I’ve finally taken the plunge and ordered a new set of custom fit Mizuno irons. After a few sessions, which involved taking a couple of different options out onto the course, I’ve placed my order for a set - 4 to PW of Mizuno MP20 irons. I’ve gone for a combo set with MP20 HMB 4 & 5 irons and MP20 MMC in the 6 to PW. KBS C Taper Lite stiff shafts, 1” longer than standard, bent 2 degrees upright and 2 degrees weaker than standard. It’s taken a few fittings to get to this final spec and I want to thank my local pro for being (very) patient with me and my plethora of questions. So. The order is in. Now I’ve just go to wait 4 to 8 weeks (maybe) for them to arrive
  4. One of the more popular iron categories of recent years. One company did very well in this, not surprisingly! https://mygolfspy.com/2021-most-wanted-players-distance-iron/
  5. So, we've been over this territory on a few threads recently but I'm so stuck I thought I would right down where I am at. I play in the UK, have a Clicgear push cart and walk fairly regularly, lots in the winter when carts aren't allowed on the course. I've currently got a 2 main bags, a Mizuno cart bag and an old (2018) Mizuno BR-D4 bag for carrying. The carry bag is starting to get very scruffy, legs a bit loose, so I want a new bag for this season (whenever COVID-19 lets it start). I think I can reasonably get 1 bag that can cover both walking and push cart, but given I walk a reasonable amount I don't want a massive bag. It should also be noted I am a Mizuno junkie, so would like to go Mizzie if possible but I am very picky on design / functionality so things that don't work right are really annoying to me. Current Options: Mizuno Pro Stand Bag (6 way) Mizuno BR-D4 Stand Bag (6 way) Ping Hoofer (6 or 14 way) Jones Utility trouper What am I missing? Where do people think I should go, is the pro stand bag light enough to walk 18? Is the Hoofer a sensible cart bag as well as walking (I like the concept of the 14 way but only available in black in the UK). Does the Jones have enough pockets? No supplier near me is a) open and b) has these in stock physically si will need to order them in, so realisitcally can get 2 max before i annoy suppliers wiht return fees!
  6. With Mizuno winning the Most Wanted Players Distance this week, and so many Mizuno fans here, I thought this was an enjoyable video to watch. It's a tour of the Mizuno assembly plant outside Atlanta, GA. Gives a pretty good idea of the start to finish. Seeing those shelfs from floor to ceiling filled with club parts, is like being in candy store for golfers..ha
  7. MP20 blades best feeling irons I’ve ever played which deserve the “nothing feels like a Mizuno” tag
  8. I got a some bag upgrades so I figured I would update you guys. I was playing two hybrids (3 and 4) but found that they were going a similar distance (not sure why), so I decided to dump the 3H and stick with the 4H as I am more comfortable with it. I also upgraded my irons and 3 wood, I am currently gaming the M6 Irons (4-PW) and the Ben Hogan GS53 (total technological upgrade, may or may not stick in the bag). I also replaced my GW with a Sub70 48*, will probably replace my 56* with another club from Sub70 once they come out with their new Satin wedges. The last upgrade would be the putter, decided to go with the Wilson Staff Michigan Ave which I am enjoying thus far. Here are some pics:

  10. Looking to trade my PXG 0811x Proto 9 degree driver and Exotics cbx ironwood 2 driving iron, both in excellent condition (and with headcovers). PXG has a 60g KuroKage xStiff and exotics has a 85g xStiff HZRDUS black . Trading for a mizuno st200 driver 9 degree and mizuno mp-20 HMB 2 iron; or mizuno st190 driver 9 degree and mizuno mmc fli hi 2 iron or a combination of either. Would even take a mizuno st190 or st200 3 wood 15degree over the utility irons. Prefer xstiff in all but I would take a stiff. Must be in great condition but still can be used. Headcovers are optional as I have my own! willing to consider other brands for trades as well. Would sell them both as a pair for $350. If broken up the driver Is $300 and 2 iron $125 Thanks!

  12. Hey guys, Used to play in high school, very on and off since then (20plus years ago). I've played enough this year to get myself back to a 3 handicap. There are some clubs in the bag that were given to me by a tour pro and maybe I shouldn't be gaming them but they just look and feel great so I'm keeping them in the bag. I also do have a set of Miura CB501's (4-PW) that I'm currently not gaming.

  13. Here's a topic that isn't discussed anywhere near as much as it should be... Golf gloves. Maybe it's not as sexy as a brand new driver or some shiny wedges, but in my opinion a decent glove gives so much confidence and may be worth a handful of strokes per round (no pun intended). Am I right? I've tried a huge number of gloves in the short time that I have been playing golf and have concluded that my top 3 (at the moment) are as follows: (pictures below) 3. All Weather Glove - synthetic (cost £5.99 GBP) A surprisingly comfortable and soft glove, considering it is a value-for-money option. Grips well in all conditions (except freezing cold!). Hard wearing - One pair has lasted a dozen or so trips to the driving range as well as a couple of rounds, and is still going strong. This is my go-to glove for messing around in the garden, range work and when it's not really warm/totally dry. 2. Elite Glove - Cabretta leather (palm) and synthetic leather hybrid (cost £12.99 GBP) Beautifully soft glove, stretches to fit perfectly around my odd-shaped hands. This glove provides the best feel of any glove I have previously tried. I find that this glove is somewhat durable for a soft leather, but nowhere near as hard wearing as a synthetic glove. The first pair lasted 5 or 6 trips to the range as well as a couple of rounds in the summer before the thumb started to stretch slightly and lose a little grip. It still felt good but I replaced it with a new pair. This is my glove of choice for dry/warm weather. 1. RainGrip - Pair, Synthetic (cost £19.99 GBP for pair, including towel) I was a little sceptical about these gloves but they very quickly became my favourite gloves by far. Firstly, I had never worn a pair of gloves when playing golf, only a single glove on my left hand. This felt peculiar initially, but a couple of holes in I was loving them. They gripped well in the dry, but surprisingly really came into their own once they started to get wet. Made from an unusual microfibre type fabric which seemed to become more tacky/grippy the wetter it got! By this point the rain was coming down heavily - a common occurrence here in the UK - and I still felt 100% confident swinging my club around. As the winter months approached I started using these gloves each time I visited the range and wore them for every round I played over the winter. They are in near-perfect condition still and I'm actually looking forward to my next round in the rain! I'd love to hear your thoughts on what gloves work best for you. What glove are you using right now, and why? How much would you pay for a glove? How long does it last? Mo.
  14. Hope you enjoy this setup as much as I've enjoyed looking at some of yours - Cheers MGS! I'll start off with saying this is the first set of irons I've owned that aren't Mizuno and the first wedges that aren't Cleveland. I picked up the game about 15 years ago after I graduated college - finding a great set of Mizuno T-Zoids, GBB 4-wood, Driver, Cleveland wedges, and an old 1969 Ping hotdog putter at a garage sale for $20 with bag (I have all these clubs still - maybe I'll do a WITB with this set too). The lady that sold it to me told me that her husband just bought all new stuff and didn't need it anymore but he didn't know she was selling it. I have to assume he's never let her forget that - assuming he let her live. Fast forward 12 years through several used sets of Mizuno Irons, Celeveland wedges and revisions on all of these clubs I'm feeling great with every club in here, but feeling odd without the Mizuno irons in there. Long story short - Mixed bag, mixed feelings. I acquired the set of PXG's over the winter at a local shop for $400 and figured I couldn't pass them up. I did a shaft fitting and wow that makes all the difference. Right now the DG120S fit my game perfectly. Last year I went to a demo days, expecting to move from Cleveland to Callaway wedges (love the look), and somehow, after hours of hitting wedges walked away with Mizuno JPX919's. Still shocked because I had never considered Mizuno wedges, it was definitely not a brand name purchase - they were just the best for my swing. Same story with the Exotics 3W. Was expecting to walk away with a Rogue - but feel, sound, and launch monitor all agreed - Exoitcs it was. I stumbled into the Rogue driver after I got fit for the Epic a few years ago and had massive quality issues with it. Four Epic's later and one exploded crown, they sent me a Rogue and it's been fantastic. I think the most interesting club in my bag is my putter. I picked this up a few years into the game and haven't found better. I moved to the Spider last year and part of this year but had to come back to my Bobby Grace and it felt like coming home. I own 6 Bobby Grace putters, but the M5K-GT is the go to. Why Bobby Grace? I'm not sure... but it's been my thing. As a side note, I've always played Bridgestone balls, but this year decided to dedicate a year to ProV1 - it just seemed like I should probably play at least one season with the most popular ball in golf. I've been happy so far but am dying to give this years Bridgeys a couple rounds, too.

  18. With divided bags being of countless variations, what do you all prefer? I have a mizuno Aerolite micro bag that i have been using for about 4 years. I would like to get a new 14 way bag because I am a meticulous person. But I figured I would ask since there is nothing else better to do with this quarantine.
