Not being able to get my Snell MTB-X in yellow right now I decided to give a dozen Maxfli Tour Matte Green Golf Balls a go.  I plan to order at least 3 dozen of the Snell's when the yellow is in stock so this is a good time to run a little experiment.

FWIW.. I really like those .. and they definitely are high-vis, but .. the matte finish is not IMHO the best - retains dirt and moisture.

I did a thing today...........

I ordered a Titleist bag back in December from my buddy, and had used a $200 gift card from work to pay for it. So, I’ve become tired of waiting. In the meantime I just received $250 in Amazon gift cards from work, and the bag is currently available right now! Soooooo.... Since I get a great discount from my buddy, I went ahead and ordered a Sim 2 Max 9* with the stock Hzrdus RDX Smoke Black 70X. Robert, who built my current driver, has been testing multiple heads on our build and has found this Sim 2 Max, with the loft turned down from 9* to 8*, to be the top option. I figure why not get a new Sim 2 Max for $250, AND get the bag for free??? If the Sim doesn’t work, I’ll sell it and more than recoup my money.

Now.... I wait for the Sim. Gonna be a minute. 😂😂😂

My TP5x showed up today, I'm curious how they play compared to the regular TP5. I was planning on setting up the net but the wind is blowing about 15 mph right now. About to head off to the range and might do some chipping and putting with them to at least get an idea how they are around the green. 20210507_115559-01.jpeg.9dc46647b2d04f0f7f4eff71c2b53d4d.jpeg

Picked up this stand bag to try on my pushcart for a lighter load......

msrp was $300, marked down to $200 and I had a 50% off code, so for a $100 I’ll try it.   Came from Perfect Practice Golf, who makes portable putting greens for your home and they have Dustin Johnson promoting their products.

Picked up a 6 pack of Srixon Z gloves on ebay. I haven't used a cabretta glove in year's because price, a glove is a glove to me. But my pro gave me one for free and then I saw these for about $10.50 per, and grabbed them.

I got them on, but they didn’t go in nearly as easy as the videos I watched, they kept wanting to blow back off and the last few inches were really tough

I play the TPX5 I think they work well with low spinning Drivers, and they are good around the greens.

Those are enough ball for 3 yrs.

Not golf related, but bought my first pair of Jordan's since I was 14 I think.  Look like they will be a good shoe for summer.

Better with practice no doubt. I think you have to find the sweet spot of how much pressure to use.  Small busts as well.

Epic Speed 4W (16.5*) with Project X Cypher 50

Been looking at this for a while and finally just walked into the store and grabbed one OTR (and finally used the generous gift card from my honey from Christmas). Brought Mrs. Surfdude along for us to look at ladies' SGI sets - which we really did (REALLY!!) - and then being the good spouse/golf partner she is she went browsing and picked up a few new clothes in fun Spring colors for herself 🙂 

So I chose the Speed head over the Max as this has a slightly taller face, and I pretty much only use this club off the tee. Interestingly the stock length is the same as the 3W, but my thinking is I can always use a little more loft .. especially if I ever start to try to hit the thing from an actual fairway. And I can trim, say, 1/4-1/2" if I change grips from the stock Tour Velvet Align (not sure if I like it). 

It got its first trial run yesterday, and while my ball striking was kinda meh this club + shaft combo definitely wants to send the ball .. there's a nice Jailbreak-assist pop off the face, even at my moderate swing speed, and the shaft feels nice and smooth with a little kick at impact, also really helping launch the ball. 

* Recommendation to other moderate swing speed or other starting-to-get-a-little-older dudes -- try the PX Cypher!!!

Excellent advice my friend. I couldn’t agree more with what you said about the Cypher. I also talked about it a few weeks ago...

I originally had the Epic Max with the hazardous smoke. I just wasn’t getting what I should from it, then I tried it with the Cypher.... it gave me a huge distance bump (20+ yards) over the smoke and a much better ball flight.

My Ping G 400 Max has been my all time favorite driver since it came out 4 years ago and is still performing very well, but this one is very close to taking it’s spot in the bag. No other driver has come close to doing that. The only thing stopping me is the Ping is so damn dependable.
When I hit I the Epic/Cypher combo on the range, I know it’s better for me, but I’m having a hard time saying goodbye to the Ping... do I want to break in a new club that’s giving me more distance, or keep the one I have complete faith in under pressure?
