What Have You Bought Lately? (CHA - Club Ho's Anonymous)


hckymeyer

Recommended Posts

Bought the Callaway Mavrik Pro 4 hybrid to go with the 3h I bought a year ago. Bye-bye 4 and 5 iron. These are the first hybrids I've been able to hit consistently well without toe-hooking the ball 50% of the time. Should have bought the 4h much sooner. It's a great utility club I can actually launch high in the air.

Next decision: Upgrade my 17/18 King Forged Tec's to the '22 model or go for the 21 Apex Pro? Leaning toward staying with Cobra.

Titleist TSi2 with HZRDUS SMOKE RDX shaft, Titleist 917 16.5* FW, Mavrik Pro 20* & 23* HBs, Cobra King Tour (2020) 5-P with KBS $-Taper 120g shafts, King MIM 50*, Titleist SM8 54* and 58*, Odyssey #7 O-Works

Been playing ZX5s since last year. Just bought 6-PW ZX7 to hybrid with.  Also bought a Rogue ST Max LS with GD Tour AD DI 7X shaft and a Vokey SM9 60K.

JPX 923 Tours on the way.  Should be here next week.  Spent several hours on driver fitting.  Know it will be Stealth 2+ but still wavering on shaft.  Stock Hzadus Black Gen 4 is producing solid numbers, but going to spend a little more time with Ventus Blue and Black.  Probably will just order with the stock shaft and maybe order an additional shaft after I figure it out.  Doing the Rypstick speed training deal right now and it is increasing speed, so part of me thinks I should wait and see how much speed I pick up and whether it will translate to the course. 

Stealth 2+ Ventus Black S, Epic Max 3 wood Smoke Black S, Epic 21 3 Hybrid Smoke Black S or an old Titleist 712U 2 iron with Smoke Black X, Mizuno 923 Tours Project X LS 6.0, Mizuno T21 50, 54, 58 KBS V tour S.  Everything is +1 inch.  Currently rolling a Cameron T-22 Limited Release Newport 2.  

Titleist ProV1 X left dash or AVX in the winter when its cold

I recently purchased a LH SIM2 driver off ebay.  Just the head, head cover and adapter wrench. Paid a total of $122 including shipping and tax. Took my M2 driver shaft and installed it on the SIM2. The shaft is a e42 lite Bassara. Easily fit.  But have yet to hit it. Looks great though!  Am now looking to get a 3W and Hybrid 3-4-5-6 in either women's or senior flex. My irons are Cleveland Launcher HB irons  8-PW with women lite flex shafts. My 7 is an Adams transition hybrid. I have an Adams Idea tech Gap Wedge, which I am thinking of getting rid of as I hardly use it, and when I do, don't hit it very well. I also have a Taylormade RSI graphite shafted sand wedge.

Recovering from a fractured right side of my pelvis and multiple fractured ribs from a head on accident back on December 21. Started hitting balls in my back yard and am walking about a mile daily with a cane. Hoping to be ready to play by April Fools!

Did you try it before you bought and did you see any improvements.   After hitting the 430s this year, I didn’t see any improvement over my 400 max.  If I was getting a new Ping, I would look toward the 425.  It’s loud but it seems to perform better for me, 

Yes I did and the distance is probably 5-7 yards farther, and the sound is pretty close to the G400 Max.

Hi my name is Nick..... I am a golf Ho.....

I cannot afford these and really don't need them by any stretch of the imagination, but I just purchased the sexiest new set of irons on the planet. Maybe a support group or an intervention is necessary at this point? Open to suggestions.

So this is a very limited run that was offered to their existing client base. I think Jamie told me they are only make 500 sets in total....or something around that number. 

I am a Titleist man from driver to 58*, but I have to get these.... the custom experience is truly incredible. 

I will report back.

I got two new tm mg3 wedges. My last ones were hitting the ball too high so I matched my c-tapers in x flex, but soft stepped them twice. I am also trying out drivers, so we’ll see if I find something that’s working for me.

I checked the swingweight of my Wilson Lady 7wood today and the reason I liked the feel when I had a few practice swings was it's D0, I've not actually hit any balls yet because it's raining cats and dogs but very happy the numbers are good for Otto phlex. Yeah baby..

DSG/GG dropped the price on the previous generation Z-Star so I got a dozen for $35. This has been my ball for a few years now and I'm not switching anytime soon. I had a gift card waiting since I got the wrong balls (XV Divide 🤢) for Christmas

I'd actually have a hit with it first, who knows how much difference it will make, better maybe? 

When I've move a shaft to lower/higher loft found that the grip looked ugly BUT after a few games forgot about that and hit the ball better, just a suggestion....

I tried driver out in my simulator today,  it was unpredictable, off target, and poor distance. Just like before I had new grips put on!  🤣🤣

I really couldn't tell a difference with the grip upside down. Just cosmetic more than anything.

Definitely didn't need any of this... But this group is not about need. In non-ho fashion, I also sold off the only Swag putter I ever bought (immediate buyer's remorse last year), and that covered the cost of almost everything here:

LAB Link.1 (really wish I pulled the trigger on the first/intro release, but this standard one will do) with an Accra white shaft and Garsen grip. Pictured with the new Forky-themed cover from Hatch Golf, which is immediately going on my 4yo's bag, a future club ho himself:

Putter: Total headcase and Putter Ho. Down to two main options in the rotation (one mallet, one blade), but have 4-5 by the basement putting green that might make it in the bag at some point this year... Mallet: :L.A.B.: Mezz XL 36" Orange; Blade: :L.A.B.: Link.1 w/Accra White shaft & :garsen: grip
