  1. Hi everyone! Totally new golfer and new to mygolfspy. I have actually only played 9 holes to date. I have a used set of Nitro XLTs and am looking for something a little (or a lot) better. I feel the Nitros are crap and do not allow me to shoot as well as I could with better clubs. And yes, I am taking lessons. My instructor agrees Nitros are crap, but did not say run out and spend $2,500 on a new set of clubs. I found a set of Mizuno MX17 Irons, 3 - PW that look brand new for $350. Is this a good deal? Second question: Will I be able to tell a difference in my game, or should I say, in my driving range practice? I know I won't be shooting like Tiger just bc I have new clubs... Thanks for any constructive input!
  2. Hey guys. New to the forum and wanted to share my dream set that I put together in October 2019 was stolen from my car 2 weeks before the CA stay in place. Barely got to break them in. Not like I could use them now but they were mine. Driver: Taylormade M4 stock/shaft 3 Wood: Exotics XCG5 15° stock shaft/grip Driving Irons: Titleist 2 & 3 iron stock shaft grips Irons: Miura CB 501's 4-PW with Aerotech i80 shafts bent 2° down with Pride Grips Wedge: Miura Black Wedges, Aerotech i90's bent 2° down Pride Grips Putter: Scotty Cameron Del Mar Sigh... What should I get as replacements? Looking at the Tour Exotics EXS 220 Driver. Hit it a few times and smoked the piss out of them. Maybe Honma irons? I don't want my heart broken again with Miuras.
  3. Looking forward to the forums ... and contests! Info I have found so far is great. Larry Collins Tampa, FL 12.7 hcp - trying to get better - hard!
  4. Hey All, Been a reader of the blogs and all of the #truthdigest and thought I had to become a member. Enjoy playing golf as much as possible! Call Colorado home right now and work as a golf associate in a major golf retailer while in college. Prior USAF! Cheers! -James
  5. Howdy Y'all, I am actually a Florida Transplant here who moved to Texas about 2 years ago for work. I fell in love with the difficulty of golf about 5 years ago playing with some college buddies. I live in a town of about 8000 people and there is not a decent 18-hole public course within 25-30 minutes of me. I try to get out and play at least once a month but that is hard even in this town. My score is anywhere from about 85-95 on average. Look forward to getting to know some of Y'all What's in the Bag Driver- Aero Burner Mini TP Driver 3 Wood- Taylormade RBZ Stage 2 2 Hybrid- Adams Super XTD Irons 3-PW- Nike Forged Pro Combo Wedges- 54 and 58 Vokey Spin Milled Putter- Yes!

  6. Hello! I don't typically join forums but I just had to join MGS due to the amazing community. The wealth of knowledge amongst the member base is expansive and I've based many of my equipment purchases off the reviews given by testers on this site for better or for worse. I played baseball my whole life through college. Once I got out, I still had that competitive itch so I picked up golf. More or less, I taught myself through videos, articles, and self evaluation. I spent a lot of time at the range and developed my own swing from what I could learn online. Many people are astounded when I tell them I've never had a lesson. Fast forward a couple years and I've got a wife and kids and less time for golf. I joined a golf league and that was the best possible thing for my game. I get out once a week (and still sprinkle in weekend rounds) and the competitive format has forced my game to improve. I'm better now that I've ever been and my love for golf is at its all-time peak. I keep my clubs as up-to-date as possible through tons of buying/selling on eBay and walk every round since it's my only exercise, HA! It'll be a complete honor if I ever get to test equipment. I've been a part of the process for baseball equipment and enjoyed every minute. I write for a living and believe I could translate these talents into quality information golfers can utilize in their equipment purchasing decisions. I'm happy to be here and look forward to contributing to the community!
  7. Hello all. I've been a fan of My Golf Spy for a number of months after being turned on to it from a friend in the golf business in Sacramento. I love the direct clarity and unbiased reviews. I joined the forum a while back but can't get the password reset function to work properly so just rejoined under my work email so I can participate in the various forums etc. If you are heading anywhere near New York City this summer, the course conditions on the region are the best they have been in the last 20 years easy. Everything from the most played NYC Public golf courses to the upscale daily fees and private clubs. This is golf heaven right now. I I play all strata of courses whenever possible. I must say the City courses are in crazy good shape. Just play early or expect to have a long round.
  8. Hello, Glad to be a part of the group and hope to contribute when I can. First question would be how do I had my clubs to my signature? Thanks! Wedgie
  9. I am 66 with 17 handicap also addicted like so many out there and hope to enjoy this experience by sharing the love for this game.
  10. Howdy, everyone I've meant to do introductions for a while now but just haven't been able to. I'm a 22 year old 3 handicap golfer from Whitney Texas but soon to be at Texas A&M, I play as often as possible but always practice and I hope to get to know yall and enjoy this community! Thanks for having me!
