Okay, I have to admit to an addiction to golf equipment. Yes, that is correct. I think I have finally gone over the edge.

 

yesterday a golf club sized package arrived at m6 house.  It was from Patriot Golf.  I ordered their Fathers Day package.  A cap, a ball marker with hat clip, a sleeve of Cut Red balls and a #7 fairway wood.  All of this for just $32 shipping.  No extra fees or commitments.

The cap is black(bad for summer) and does not fit well. The ball marker does not have enough strength to stay on the clip.  The Fairway wood (#7) is the same style as the Taylormade Rocketballz 2 design.  I know it’s old, but wanted to try it.  I got to hit it today on the range(pre round) and was somewhat surprised at the performance. The launch was mid to high straight and dec3nt distance.

 

Then, before I could try it on the course, we got dumped on from the sky on the 5th hole. We got soaked and quit.

Anyway, I need to check into an anti-golf-equipment group for therapy.......anybody have suggestions?

I think heavy into hypnosis 😜

Picked up a copy of Ray Floyd's The Elements of Scoring for next to nothing on eBay and am looking forward to reading it. I had been searching for some new night time reading material, anyway!

And, a sort of mistake purchase - a 5H, 6-GW set of Cobra F8 One Lengths with regular graphite shafts. 🤦‍♂️

The wife has been playing a few holes with me and had expressed some interest in trying one lengths a while back. I had two tabs on eBay open Saturday and thought I was placing a bid on a set of F9 OLs (which I would have lost at my bid amount), but was in the wrong tab and didn't double-check. Not a huge deal, but I wouldn't have been so upset had I been outbid... I wasn't that upset to ask the seller to cancel the bid, either.

Oh well! Looking forward to seeing how she likes them. Of course, I haven't broken the news to her yet, she probably won't be a huge fan of my $450 "oops." 🤣

There was a Callaway Epic Forged 7 iron in their pre-owned clearance section...

Was.

At about $45, I couldn't resist. Also picked up a hybrid and a wedge with it to make myself a little spare set. I won't feel as bad about keeping it in my car, and I can leave the big bag and main clubs at home unless I'm planning to go play a round. Now I just need to find a nice little bag to carry the new selections in.

The rest of the bag is an old Acuity box set. It all goes around on a BagBoy Nitron push cart.

Not necessarily a new purchase, but having my previous gamer - Scotty Cameron Pro Platinum Newport 2 repainted.  I had already stripped the old paint out, so it was ready to go, but I just didn't get around to doing it.  Having a local shop do it for me as I'm sure they'll do a better job anyhow.  Not going crazy with colors, just blue and white.  Maybe do red, white and blue.  Haven't decided yet.

Going to put it back in the bag to see if a change helps me make a few more putts.  Thinking more about it, I may just bite the bullet and have it refinished.  It could definitely use it.

Share pics when it's done.

I bought a new ping g425 lst driver last week. Can’t wait for it to arrive to get it in the course. FedEx shipping is atrociously slow. Don’t think I’ll receive it on its current pace for at least another week and I’m 8 days currently. Worst part is I cancelled an order from Ping directly that I waited 5 weeks for originally before seeing it was in stock at TGW

Finally retiring the Sun Mountain SpeedCart after getting another flat tire while playing my last round of golf at the PNW Spy Meet-up.  I considered the conversion kit but would have $80 into it.  I revisited the recent MGS Most Wanted push cart review and the #1 rated Rovic and then found this unit on sale along with a great review by one of our fellow spies (nice review @edingc!).  Other reviews on this cart were very good. The only question/reservation I have is switching from the hand lever brake to the foot brake... I'll undoubtedly be reaching for that lever for a spell 🤣.

How'd you get a flat tire at Liberty Lake?  How far off the fairway were you??  😂

I suspect a GoatHead from Yuma that finally worked its way through. Fortunately the pro shop had a portable compressor.
