@sirchunksalot - that 2 iron is a butter knife

It definitely looks absolutely tiny. I can see now why people call GI irons shovels and compare these to butter knives.

I see you with the Callaway hitting mat. Mine has taking an absolute beating and keeps on ticking. Love that thing. If you just got it I would consider taking out the tee placement. I destroyed mine early on.

I appreciate you letting me know how durable they are. I haven't had mine too long and mostly use it for chipping. It's good to know it'll last. I tried teeing a ball up a couple of times and couldn't hit the ball solid for love nor money.

I know this isn't the thread for this, but I wanted to update how the Wilson's are coming along. I'll probably create another thread to update from here on out once I finish up the cleaning and get them to the course.

I took the 2 iron out today with some foam balls just to see if I could hit it. I had a couple of decent shots with a little fade bias. I was standing a little above the ball since there's a premium on flat spots in my yard. I did top and chunk a few and I believe with some range time I might be able to improve on it. I will say that looking down on it that it's scary. I didn't grasp the smaller head size until today. 20200601_190814-01.jpeg.c1f74665edfd85ae052fff2829f7bee2.jpeg

I then took it inside and put a nice shine on it removing the rust and film from the head and shaft. I then soaked it in soapy water and worked on the grooves.

Although I have only been on this forum for a little over 6 months, I hang out and post in this thread way too often (aka I buy too much stuff). Currently overhauling grips. New Sense putter grip is on the way. Today's purchase is the Iomic Black Armor 2 1.8 grips. This is probably one of the smallest Men's undersize grips that you can buy given it has a core size of 0.600 and a finished sized of 21.8 mm. After much trial and error and a better understanding of my issues with gripping the club, I need something smaller than standard. With these grips, I can start without any buildup and can add buildup tape as needed, especially with my new grip remover tool so I don't waste grips.

My normal sunglasses that I play in have a scratch on the left lens that, when hitting driver, is like RIGHT where the ball usually is. It's annoying to say the least. Looked up replacement Oakley lenses -- $80. Looked up buying the same model with the lenses I was going to put in them, per @Jmikecpa's recommendation of the Prizm Golf Dark, and it's $120 on Amazon. So I guess the scratched ones can be my new daily pair.

I love my Epic Flash driver and 3 wood so much that Callaway Golf Pre-owned received an order this morning for an Epic Flash Heavenwood.   Anyone taking bets that I replace my 4H with and Epic Flash hybrid soon?  lol

Alright - I have G30’s - Didn’t care for the G410’s the 3 times that I have tried them including at a fitting for the Ping long game testing last year.

But I’m certain I have a bit to be gained by moving up three iterations of something.

My overall ARCCOS handicap is 3.8 right now - driving and approach shots are around a 9 with all of my gain from 6 to 3.8 coming from dropping the driving number from 15 to 9.

I know that my driving number is limited by my lack of distance (I’m hitting over 75 percent of my fairways and even my misses are playable).

But there’s lots of room for approach shot improvement. So I pulled the trigger on a set of D7’s this weekend.

There were a few reasons.

First, as a better player my eye goes towards player’s type irons. But as an older guy with a moderate swing speed fitters have repeatedly told me that I benefit from a wider platform in my middle irons and woods over hybrids for longer clubs.

Second, I’ve hit them a limited number of times with great success, had success with a set of Wilson C100’s - like a 38 on the front at TPC Sawgrass and a safe landing with 9 iron on 17. Only a few issues on 16 (non iron related) prevented me from breaking 80.

Third, I’ve played with Foz, who games them, and absolutely love how they sound.

I will let you know how they work out. I’m looking for more consistency and a tad more distance. I’m also looking hard at that gap between 8 and 7 as well as which gap wedge I should use and if 5 iron is a better choice than 9 wood (9 wood is not great in windy conditions and i live close to the Gulf of Mexico - windy enough to impact a golf ball)

If you have not pulled the trigger on new sunglasses, check out Fuse replacement lenses they are as good as original Oakley lenses for a third of the price! I have two pair of Oakley Turbine glasses I golf in and one set got scratches on the lenses so I ordered a set of Fuse polarized replacement lenses and popped them in about 6 months ago and I'm very pleased!

That thing is a lot of fun and very addictive.
I like it so much more than putting to a cup or hole in a mat.

And aiming for that perfect putt has me missing far fewer short while practicing. That’s yet to translate on the course, but the greens have be dreadfully slow so far.

Good to know. I’ve replaced my original lenses with with polarized XLJ ones on my flak jackets but went with the Oakley ones. I ended up getting a decent deal but it was still more expensive than those.

I’ve always been weary of using non-OEM lenses but that brand always popped up. I’ll keep them in mind when I need another set of lenses. I can’t believe the frames are going on 12 years old now. I’ve replaced the rubber bits 3 times but can’t say I haven’t gotten my moneys worth out of them!image-2020-06-02-11:11:29-322.jpg
