One more addition for this week -- wasn't sure about it because I know nothing about the company, but it showed up today and is actually pretty slick: Ace of Clubs Cork Scorecard/Yardage Book Holder with a tribute to our new PGA Champion.PXL_20210526_173004544.jpg.a2fcc549c8027f166cd77410ca06a95f.jpg

 

That looks sweet, does it feel like cork, or more like leather, and just looks like cork?

It's actual cork -- and as an added bonus, that makes it $30 cheaper than the leather ones.

Driver: :taylormade-small: Stealth Plus 8* (adjusted to 8.75*), Mitsubishi Diamana ZF 70 X Flex

Fairway: :taylormade-small: SIM, 15* (adjusted to 14.25*) w/ Paderson Kinetixx Ballistic TP 85 X Flex

Irons:  :titleist-small: U505 1 Iron (16*), T200 "Utility Build" 3 and 4 irons, all with Graphite Design Tour AD-IZ 95 X Flex, :titleist-small: T100S 5-PW with Nippon Pro Modus 120 X Flex (2021 MGS Test). These things are monsters. 

Wedges: :mizuno-small:T-20 Blue Ion 50.07, :Miura: K-Grind 2.0 Black 54* and Chrome 60* w/Accra SPI Tour

Putter: Total headcase and Putter Ho, so there are now 4(!!) in the rotation. Main gamer: L.A.B. Golf Mezz XL 36" Orange. When feeling off, also rotate between :EVNROLL: ER11V ("Murdered Out" Black edition),  :mizuno-small: M Craft Type II Blue Ion and a Toulon Madison 

Yes...that's too many. Lately I've been swapping in/out the 3-wood and 50* wedge.

Define lately. I have a Golf Ball shaped change bank in my home office. When it’s full, I empty it’s contents and head to my local Coinstar kiosk to convert the change to an Amazon gift card. Then I peruse Amazon for “gadgets”.

I have used a Bushnell Neo Ion watch GPS for several years. I have been contemplating a laser rangefinder as I wondered if taking slope into account might be beneficial. I had noticed one pop up by Mileseey. Which sent me to YouTube. I watched several reviews and they were positive. Ones from SAS Golf and Brown Bear Golf really stood out. So I kept checking the pricing and on Black Friday last year purchased a Mileseey PF210 Laser Rangerfinder. They had a Black Friday special and I purchased it with my change bank proceeds for $81. It’s normal price is around $130. With it being December in Central New York, actually using it on the course wasn’t happening.

Come April I started using it. I am very pleased with it so far. It compares favorably with my watch GPS in terms of raw distance and with the slope feature on it does cause me to change clubs from time to time. Now if only my swing and ball striking can regularly take advantage of this new information. For the money I am most pleased so far. I wasn’t really in the market for a more expensive rangefinder. It comes with a nice zippered hard case with a D-ring and an elastic loop closure and a lens cleaning cloth. I hang from a ring on my push cart. The case looks like a Bushnell hard case. If you are toying with the idea of an inexpensive rangefinder, this one is worth considering.

... Now that we are in the off season and the prices are dropping at premium Phoenix courses, I figured it was a good time to add a 3 wood. Sim2 Max with a Tensei Raw Blue shaft was the best performing fairway wood for me at my last fitting. Problem was it would be mid to late July to arrive if I ordered one. I normally don't buy new from Ebay as I prefer to support brick and mortar but this one popped up with my exact specs so I jumped on it. As you can see I clearly needed it!

Nice!!  A couple of months ago, I went back to my RBZ 3W and 3, 5 hybrids.  For some reason they just feel good and perform better than the new stuff for me.

I didn't buy it; my wife bought me a Garmin Approach S62 golf watch for my birthday.  I might be too old for it; it sure is dang, high-falutin,' complicated for this old geezer.  Took me 2 hours just to get the watch part working and paired with my phone!!  I think I'm going to like the convenience on the course though.  First test run this Saturday.

 

You're gonna love it ya ole fart! 😉  I sure do love my Garmin and a few more old geezers at my course wear em too.   I feel naked if I leave home without it! 😳

Picked up a Sim Max 5 wood and holy smokes is it a bomber. 
You'll be putting for a lot of eagles with that thing.

I have a Garmin watch and love it.  I’m not easy on watches but it has held up very well.

Since getting the Apple 6 watch I only wear the Garmin on course.

I haven't sprung for the Apple Watch... yet.  I haven't worn a watch since the first flip phones were available.  I'm wearing the Garmin all day to get used to it being on my wrist.  So far, I don't like the feeling, but as with anything golf, we have to get used to a "feel".

I had no intention on getting the Apple 6.  My wife’s 5 year old iPhone was DOA and had to get a new 12.  They made her a deal on a combo iPhone and watch.  She didn’t want the watch so they had 1 man size 6 so I took it.  So far I’m happy with it and don’t need the 8 year old....... yet.

Not for me, but bought a pair of Puma Ignite Fasten8 shoes for my son yesterday. Waiting for his review before deciding whether to buy a pair for myself. 😁

... You were right. For a larger head the Sim2 3 wood is easy to hit from the fairway and awesome off the tee. Just stupid long.
