I did something yesterday that I never imagined doing...I bought Taylor Made wedges...
I have hated my current setup all season and try as I may, I have little faith.  They work but they could always be better.  So I took a ride to my local shop where I worked in college.  The blue chip guys who are close to retirement still work there and they're wonderful.  Unfortunately, none were free to help get me squared away.  So I walk in and say I know what I need, two low bounce wedges, whatever you have in demos to try and in a 52 and a 58 and I will try anything except Callaway.  The salesman says woah, slow down and proceeds to give me the sales pitch about bounce.  After ten minutes he came outside and we talked about working there and he figured out I didn’t need to be sold.
So here they are...I cannot believe I did this but I love the look of that 52 with a teardrop.

I think you’re going to be happy with them, very nice.

My first takeaway was the look. I’m super picky about the look of my wedges at address and these two really do it for me. I’ll attest to what@shankster has said during his test of the HiToe...that they’re clicky and not the softest feeling wedge...I can get over that as the way they frame the ball gives me a massive boost of confidence.

I like the “low bounce” plus the looks.

Switched back to white because of the true path paint on the spider x. Not sure if that's what the marketing term is for it?

Since everyone was on a book buying kick, and I had a $20 eBay coupon that expired soon, I picked up the following for $2.44 delivered:

  • Fearless Golf: Conquering the Mental Game by Gio Valiante and Mike Stachura
  • The Art of the Short Game: Tour-Tested Secrets for Getting up and Down by Stan Utley
  • Golf is Not a Game of Perfect by Dr. Bob Rotella
  • Zen Golf: Mastering the Mental Game by Joseph Parent
  • Putting Out of Your Mind by Dr. Bob Rotella
  • The Seven Laws of the Golf Swing: Visualizing the Perfect Swing to Maximize Your Game by Nick Bradley

I'm obviously very much on an, "Improve my game mentally," streak.

Rotella is awesome. I go back and read golf is not a game of perfect every couple of years.

Hopefully he does as well. On the hunt for a 4 hybrid to replace his Adams hybrid. Kid is going to have one heck of a good looking bag when I get done with it.

The Veylix Mansion has arrived! Goes into the G400 LST tomorrow, hopefully, for a range session, if not just hitting some drives off the tee box on a few holes at our public course. It’s a matte black shaft, with white and gray script. It matches the G400 head SOOOOOO nicely!

Love the look of that shaft.  Been looking at Veylix shafts based on your posts about them;  may have to go try one out;  just don't want to pay for a Club Champion fitting to try one.

The rep told me that the Mansion is different from the Rome I have in that the Mansion actually helps increase ball speed. It has a “kick” from the mid-section, yet keeps the dispersion tight. He says he’s hitting his driver longer, AND straighter!

You have a G400 of any kind? You can try my Rome.

Just got my new and first ever golf umbrella. Debated getting one at all but after getting stuck in the rain twice earlier this year during outings, it was time.
Went with the Shedrain Vortex Vent Pro Golf Umbrella. Ordered it from Costco with a sweet discount (surprised I stopped myself from ordering any KSigs).

I have a TaylorMade umbrella; actually I have two because they were 2 for $25.  I bought them when TaylorMade came out with the Burner line of clubs.

I can't remember ever using it in the rain; maybe on a trip many years ago, IDK.  However, I have used mine a lot on my pushcart for shade in the summer.  I live in the desert... if it's raining, I wait 10 minutes; if it's going to rain, I don't play until it stops.

Well this is a different twist on the posts here. This box arrived today for my wife. Since she was away, she asked me to open it up and check the grips. FYI, I checked the grips but I'm not about to unwrap the clubs  - that would be akin to unwrapping her Christmas presents. In the box. Big Bertha heads 7i - GP on Recoil ESX shafts -..50, 19* Big Bertha hybrid with the same Recoil shaft  -.25. Still to come are a Ping 410 9 wood on CB R flex shaft and a CBX 56* on a Rotex shaft.  I think my credit card is still smoking.
