What have you bought lately? (CHA - Club Ho's Anonymous)

I was browsing Amazon deals and noticed they were in on the Bridgestone B330 promo as well. I randomly decided to click the "there's a newer model available" link and it took me to the Tour B XS page with a price of $37.49.

 

The price looks like it's still there if anyone else wanted to grab some: https://smile.amazon.com/Bridgestone-Golf-Balls-White-Dozen/dp/B075KC9VMR/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1511624173&sr=8-4&keywords=bridgestone+tour+b

Honmas arrived. More pics in my fitting thread

To follow up on one of my teases from the other day. PXG Proto X 9 degree Evenflow Blue 5.5  

Posted Images

Yeah, I hit that up, too .. three times!

 

Have found some great deals there, plus they always seem to have the most generous trade-in values. And they sell you a return shipping label (UPS) to send stuff back for only $4.95

 

So now I've added....

* 2 for 1 Cally BB Fusion 3W and 5W

 

* almost 50% off Cally BB Fusion "Heavy" driver - this is the one with the shorter shaft and a 12g weight (vs the standard 5g)

 

* 3 for the price of one new wedges - though these are less than "Like New" condition and are the older gen (pre-MD series) Forged wedges.

 

I have a Forged 54 that I like, but haven't played in favor of an older X Jaws. But the attraction here is these all have the same *graphite* shaft.

 

I've been looking at that Cleveland CBX wedge for the GI features, but I really like hitting solid forged wedges. And then it hit me like the proverbial light bulb flashing on - graphite shafts may be more forgiving (in addition to a little lighter which I'm starting to like as I get older) .. I'd always thought wedge shafts were just _supposed_ to be steel and that's it.

 

(Yeah yeah I know I can go to a fitter and have them work this all out but I kinda enjoy testing / trial & error / learning on my own, plus I could always trade the stuff back and it would be less than the cost of a fitting.)

 

These wedges also have more bounce at each loft vs my current ones, and I'm thinking that can help me, too, as I sometimes can come in steep on the ball.

 

All the woods have Recoil shafts, which I also have in my irons and PW. And all the clubs got new Golf Pride CP2 wrap grips (which I also have on my irons and PW) for no extra charge.

 

So _almost_ kinda starting to standardize things through the bag!

WOW, gotta be the shopper of the year. I guess that's taking advantage of Black Friday deals

The XR16 series is amazing. It feels illegally hot off the face.

Thanks it does sound better. The golf shop I helped run and was a silent partner in  was called McFrugals my buddy Big John (RIP) who started it named it that--- His motto was "We save you money for greens fees"

Hi MGS, I just started playing in July and I'm a +20 handicap.

After discovering, reading and even having Adam reply to my emails, I relied on MGS for gear purchases.

 

Based on swing speed I went with a Wilson D300 driver a few weeks ago. I really like the feel of it, way better then the 2017 Orlimar driver I was using.

 

After using a real club I went nuts last weekend and retooled my bag. I got a new Titleist 917 F2, and Cobra F7 3-4 hybrid. Both feel like real clubs and the F7 keeps me in the fairway.

 

I also helped my short game out and got a ping ketsch mid. This club shaved a couple strokes on my latest round. Solid purchase for me because I'm trying to develop a forward press on the greens. This one makes you play that way. I immediately putted better then with my 90s but in great shape with a new black ping man grip Anser2.

 

Didn't get fit for any of them as I went the used and new on eBay route. The titleist was legit, at least I think so, and only 150 never hit. Came with head cover and an extra draw/fade weight. Even the owners manual explaining the setup came with it.

 

So yeah I take data serious and I saw myself get better after one round with the new clubs. Played with a guy who works at my home course and he gave me a big tip I'll carry with me from now on. Keep a solid tempo and don't rush. 1-2

What a great post!!

 

So cool to hear Adam helping you out. But not surprised that's what he has founded this site on, information to help your game.

 

You are right about the 917 F2, it's as solid of FW as I've hit. The 18 degree is my go to club, never a problem hitting it off the deck and the 15 degree is a killer off the tee when my driver goes wonky.

 

Thanks for the update. Lots of good golf conversations all over the forum. Jump right in.

It's sad to say, but such a joy at the same time, to have bought another putter this week. I got a Betty Queen Bee 7 from a demo event that was still in plastic. This makes it so I know have 4 putters from 4 different brands. attachicon.gifIMG_1901.JPGattachicon.gifIMG_1902.JPGattachicon.gifIMG_1903.JPGattachicon.gifIMG_1904.JPG
