Just got back from a week trip to South Carolina. In addition to getting in some golf much earlier in the year than I'm used to, which was awesome, Kirke and I hit a golf store as well (there are none here where we live). We intended only to get Kirke a glove, but I looked at some used clubs and...

Picked up a snazzy new driver with and RDX Smoke Blue shaft for $165. Figured that even if it doesn't kick my Titleist TS3 out of my bag, I'm likely to be able to recoup that cost.

Nice pickup! I test drove this club as well last week, going for $149 at the PGA Tour Superstore. I couldn’t believe it, but I just couldn’t pull the trigger on it since it wasn’t beating my Ping G410, but I was this close to buying it.

How's the move from TSi3 to TSr2 for you? I just picked up the TSi3 last year on a steal of a deal so not upgrading this year, but maybe when the next Titleist iteration comes out I will look at the TSr line as they will be the prior model at that point and more in the price range I'm comfortable paying.

Orry for the delayed response.

Absolutely love it. I was a little concerned about spin at first, but it hasn't increased at all. Distance and forgiveness is all that has increased. On my simulator, I was consistently longer with the same smash factor.

Played in very windy conditions Friday and it never once ballooned on me. I prefer to carry the ball as far as possible and my launch angle is a little high for my swing speed, but I don't like roll as that can get me in trouble At the two courses I belong to and play. So I went from hitting a 10⁰ in the TSi3 to a 9⁰ in TSr2. Went from a mid launch low spin shaft to low launch low spin shaft and it is perfect. 

If I miss the center, it's a little toward the toe.  When I'm a 1/4" toward the toe, I lose zero distance with the TSr. With the tsi3, I would lose 15 yards on that shot and it would draw more. 

Switching to the TSr is a change that I recommend to anyone playing Titleist drivers.

Sadly this weekend I missed on what may have been a flash sale a DSG and GG on Callaway Chrome Soft X, 2022 Triple Track edition that were 4 dozen for price of 3... but I did reorder my golf shoes I got for Christmas in the right size and finally made a decision on club 14. Once everything shows up and a golf ball selection is made, I promise you all an updated WITB, first one I think since the G710 Review in 2020?

I just ordered a Cleveland RTX 6 ZipCore Tour wedge at 48* to replace my soon to be gone gap wedge.  I have the ZipCores in 54 and 58 and love them.  New irons are in my future and the RTX are a known commodity (and likely less expensive than an iron set gap wedge).  I am excited to test it out.

I also picked up a Big MAX Dri Lite Hybrid Tour Water-Repellent Stand Bag from Amazon to replace my quickly deteriorating bag, and a headcover that looks a lot like our puppy (at my supportive wife's suggestion).  The old bag did not have full-length club compartments and was murder on grips and immensely frustrating with tangled clubs.  Hopefully this will be more protective and easier to use.

Getting ready for the season!

I love my Dri Lite 14.0 Hybrid.  The straps are pretty comfortable, it has plenty of pockets for me.  When I put midsize grips on my old clubs, the slots were a bit tight, but not a deal breaker.  I chose red and black to support The Dawgs!  😉

Too much junk for me!  I usually push a cart or ride, so weight matters a little less.  (I have a lighter bag I use if I know I am carrying.)  I usually carry a couple Gatorades and snack bars in addition to an excess of balls, extra gloves, layers (for the unpredictable Hoosier spring and fall weather), adjustment tools, cigars, rangefinder, etc.  Yeah - definitely too much! 

Working at getting better ... and very slowly getting there.

Decided to retire my 2019 PXG 0211s with KBS C-Taper Stiff. Went to a fitting looking for more loading and feel and got set up with the Cobra ForgedTec X with KBS Tour Lite shafts. 92mph 6i swing speed and with the Tour Lites got better feel and numbers with the Regular flex instead of Stiff. That was a bit odd to me but numbers don’t lie. Biggest drawback with the loft jacked X’s will be going back and reclubbing my bag. The 5 and 6i X’s were giving me same distances as my current gamer 3 (19deg) and 4 (22deg)G410 hybrids. So will probably need to take out hybrids, add an extra wedge and maybe a 5 or 7 wood now.
