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

Recommended Posts

I’m in the middle of a home improvement project installing a new decomposed granite patio so I know I won’t be swinging a club for the next few weeks as I’ve been shoveling gravel for hours each day. I figured it was the perfect time to send my beloved ISI’s back to Ping for a refinish. I’m getting them refinished in Ping’s “Guyson” finish which is a shot peen finish that was originally offered on the Ping i3 irons. They should be arriving back to me right when I’m finishing my project so it will be a nice little reward.

 

I’ve seen pics of others that had their ISI’s refinished in the Guyson finish and they look better than new. Can’t wait to get mine back.

... As some of you know I am a very healthy eater so that means all organic when possible and pretty much no sugar. Deserts are rare. When I was in Phoenix one of my cheats was Strauss Family Farms Organic Chocolate Chip Ice Cream. Unreal tasting guilt free ice cream and maybe the best I have ever had. Back home in Chicago no such option exists, but we do have some grass fed Kalona whole milk/heavy cream that is low temperature vat pasteurized. So I bought a Cuisinart Ice Cream maker and tried my first batch about  2 weeks ago. I followed the recipe although I cut back just a little on the Organic Cane Sugar but it was still way tooooooo sweet. Made my second batch today and I cut the recipe for sugar in half and it turned out perfect!

... Picked up some organic blackberries I can add with walnuts when I eat it and I am still trying to find the right chocolate chips. Really nice having a favorite cheat every now and then, especially knowing the milk/cream comes from grass fed cows and the cane sugar is organic. I picked up this Cuisinart 2 Qt Ice Cream maker for $65 after using a 20% of Bed Bath and Beyond coupon when it was already on sale:

Ordered 7 midsize Tour Velvets for my irons. Nothing wrong with the Plus4s, but going back to what was originally on my irons for swing weight purposes.

So I've been a little naughty! (If my girlfriend asks the clubs cost a lot less 🤣)

At my home club we had a fitting day, the first time I've ever had the chance to do one - I was pretty excited.

I thought I had my heart set on the new TM P790's as they look the nuts. BUT during the fitting my golf pro got me to swing the Titleist T100 and they were phenomenal. Everything from sound to feel i loved! Spin numbers were good and dispersion was really good for me.

 

So I've bought 9-5 T100 with KBS Tour 130g x shafts to go in them.

Oh I accompanied the purchase of the irons with 4 new Vokeys too!

Hoping they will be in my hands in the next 2 weeks. I'll post pics when they arrive.

Safe to say I spoiled myself for my birthday - just need a new bag now!

I picked up this Cuisinart 2 Qt Ice Cream maker



Fun facts for the Cuisinart: you can drop in drinks, let them churn for 20 minutes and make your own Slushy type drinks. Even throw in some alcoholic beverages and have an adult version . Mike’s Hard Lemonade comes to mind...

Hits the spot on a really hot day

And yes, these little Cuisinart’s are awesome for ice cream as well!

I bought a minty 18* Adams DHY head from @chisag awhile back, and after much hunting, finally got my hands on the right shaft. It’s all put together and ready for action but my wrist is still feeling too hinky to compress a golf ball. Can’t wait to get this fairway finder out on the course.

I also found a bundle of several dozen NOS balls at the thrift store last weekend. I think they’re neat and pondered taking some swipes with the vintage bag to get the full experience, but I’m afraid these ancient surlyn covers may shatter like rock candy.

I drove 11 hours back down to SC on Sunday, which threw off my sleep schedule. I found myself on the CPO site at 2am Tuesday morning, and noticed they had listed the Epic Flash woods and '19 Apex iron lines minutes earlier.

I resisted getting a set of the Apex with 760 recoils, but I took a flyer on a Like New Epic Flash 9* driver with the Evenflow 55 regular flex shaft at $327.

I've never hit the Epic Flash, never hit an Evenflow shaft, and I'm very happy with my PING G400 Max. I made the purchase at 230am. What could possibly go wrong? 🙄

Found a $100 shop credit card from a club in the Island that I won like two years ago. Stopped in today and got two dozen balls.

 

Oh, And I bought a set of Epic Pro irons today as well. Had a set when they came out the I am not sure got the attention they deserved before I dumped them.

Mizuno GT 180 3W with stiff MRC Tensei White shaft. The 15 degree model that's adjustable up to 17 degrees. 

I hit a bunch of different three woods today in testing. My swing was not great while demoing, so I was relying on appearance and feel. I know the Mizuno did not score well in the fairway test last year, but it feels very nice and on good swings the ball really hops off the face. I liked the feeling of the Tensei White, too.

I demo'ed: Mizuno GT 180, Tour Edge CBX, Cobra F9, Wilson C300, and the Srixon F65. Immediately hated the feel of the C300. I wanted to like the Cobra, but I just didn't get along with it. The CBX face felt super hot and had the HZRDUS Yellow shaft that I love, but it has a lot of offset and it just didn't work for me. It came down to the Srixon and Mizuno, with the Mizuno winning because of the shaft and adjustability.

Price was good, too. $68.99 for a brand new in plastic wood with matching headcover. Can't complain about that at all.
