Over a month ago I bought the GForce 7 iron and I feel it has helped my game tremendously.  I had been thinking of adding the wedge to smooth out my chipping so yesterday on ebay I bought an Orange Whip Wedge Training Aid 56º,  which is essentially the same but  I saved about $50, it is lightly used and the grip still in the wrapper..  It will be here next week.

How's the GForce working for you? I have a midsize OW but can imagine the feedback from hitting balls is better than just practice swings.

just picked up 4-PW Srixon Z785 with AMT white shafts, should be here monday. Pretty pumped about them.

I have three or four different sets of shafts to try them out with. DGPro s300, C taper Lite, the AMT whites they're coming with, and eventually the Recoil F4 shafts my P790s are in.

I like the GForce better than the OW, before my back surgery I had the OW and would use it for warm up, I now use the GForce as the warm up club as it is lighter than the whip but heavier than my 7 iron.  I especially like to hit balls with it as it will smooth out your tempo in just a swing or two.   It has replaced the OW as my all time favorite training aid.

My new Callaway Mack Daddy CB wedge just delivered. I ordered a 54 degree sand wedge degrees upright. Can’t wait to try it and see how it compares to the MD3 wedge it’s replacing.

Well a Sim Max D 9* head is on the way to me. If I can’t make the D work, I guess that will end my Sim experiment.

Maybe I can talk the wife into a TSi3 for my birthday!

For those interested, I managed to get out for my maiden voyage with the Sim Max D. I paired it with an Aldila Rogue Black 60R shaft. It was only 50* out which is 20-50* colder than I usually play in. 
It is without a doubt less fade bias than the Sim Max but I still didn’t find it draw biased at all. If anything it was more neutral/fade for me. I couldn’t get the ball to turn left at all, no matter how hard I tried. That said it wasn’t a slice machine either. I was able to aim left center and hit tiny 5 yard fades in command. When I did really try to put a big draw swing on it, the result was a very straight flight. This resulted in 12/14 fairways hit in the day with a driver I had never swung before. I went straight to the tee from the car. 
 

Now distance wise compared to the Proto X is hard for me to determine. As I said it was a lot colder today than when I had hit the PXG but wasn’t more than 5 yards shorter on center hits and 10 yards shorter than the PXG on the 1 extreme toe and 1 extreme heel hits I had. 
I can’t wait to get thing thing out again. It is suppose to be in the mid 70’s next weekend so hopefully I can get out again. 
 

Also the difference in face height is huge for me.

Tempted to try out the MD CB wedge.
My current sand wedge needs to be upgraded but I am starting to use it less as I turn to my new MD4 60* more often.

I actually have it in standard loft upright lie position.  I have been playing my drivers at 44.75” recently which is an 1” shorter than standard so I figured the upright lie (60*) was the best option.

Pulled the trigger on the biggest golf purchase of my life this afternoon. After working with one of our local shops and also L.A.B. customer service (thanks, Matt!), I custom ordered a L.A.B. DF 2.1 mallet. The full specs are:

  • 36"
  • 68 Degree Lie Angle
  • Black Nickel Finish
  • Press II 3* Grip
  • BGT Stability Tour Shaft
  • Combination of No. 18 and No. 19 sightlines

I was a little hesitant to drop so much on a putter, but I think the tech in these is for real. And if it gets me to practice a little more, that's an added bonus.

The putter should be in by the end of the month. I think it's going to look really sharp with the black head, shaft and grip.

I laughed a little because the shop owner called me to get my credit card info and he was like, "You do know how much this is, right?" 🤣

Merry Christmas and happy birthday to me, I guess.

My ebay LAB Golf DF 2.1 factory second is coming tomorrow, i can't wait.

... Just something I wanted to pass along. Years ago when I first started playing golf I used to keep my putter and 6 balls in my car. When I was coming home from auditions or errands I would just pull in to any golf course I passed and spend about 10-15 minutes putting on their practice green. I got to putt on quite a few different surfaces with different green speeds and it really helped my putting. Also a great way to get used to a new putter.

Bought some short compression socks to wear when I play. These are ankle height compression socks, not the over calf ones. Mainly hoping it will result in my big toe hurting less after a round of walking.

I haven't devoted any time to practicing putting this year and it shows. Some of that is because I'm realizing as I get older that I can't bend over nearly as much. Going from a 33" to a 36" should help out my lower back quite a bit! My hope is that I can practice putting more often as a result.

Stretch dude!  A lot of time tight hip flexors are to blame for lower back pain.  I actually went from a 35" Scotty to a 34" Evnroll and haven't had a problem, but I'm fanatical about stretching...want to be making a full turn when I'm in my 70s!

Got fit for a set of Mizuno JPX 921 Hot Metals 5-PW with the ESX F3. Moving out of a set of TM Rsi 1. Apparently Mizuno only has a 3-4 week wait time compared to months for some of the other OEMs, but I still hate waiting.
