I continue to be blessed by my buddy who works in the golf industry. He has sent me many products for free or insanely cheap in the past and this most recent shipment might be the best yet.

A few weeks ago he sent me a picture of a Titleist U505 2-iron and asked if I'd be interested. I said absolutely without having to think twice. I currently have a G425 Crossover 2-iron in the bag, but I wasn't in love with it. Shaft was slightly too stiff for me and I didn't love the look at address. Meanwhile this U505 looks beautiful and has a Graphite Design Tour AD DI-85S shaft in it.

I recently got a new 3-wood with a red Ventus Velocore shaft in it and it's been my new favorite club. I told him to keep an eye out for a Ventus blue driver shaft because if I'm hitting my 3-wood this good, I can only imagine it would help my driving too, right?! Long story short he found one, threw a ping tip on it and sent it out with the 2-iron above.

The box arrived yesterday and I was very excited to get my hands on the new 2-iron and driver shaft. Then to my surprise, I opened the box and saw a bunch more extra gifts! He threw in a dozen golf balls including the new Callaway Chrome Tour and Chrome Tour X balls, as well as some TaylorMade TP5s. He also included two brand new Titleist Players gloves in my size, a Titleist hat and last but definitely not least... a Greyson polo in my size.

I'm over the moon and it feels like Christmas morning with all these new toys. Super excited to put the new driver shaft and 2-iron into play this weekend. Hoping they provide me with the results I'm expecting!

That is so awesome!!!

BY FAR the least sensible thing in my golf bag. I do not have the speed to hit this Gen5 X driving iron...not even close. BUT it was SO cheap (bought the head only for less than $20) and had an old, uncut shaft laying around so, why not?! Even if I can't hit it, I'll be happy enough just looking at it 😍

What do we think? Black or a pop of color? 

Well the follow Dodge guy will say black. The Chevy guy will go with the color. The Ford guy won't know what to say because his clubs are still in the shop. And the Toyota guy will ask why aren't they Miuras?

Personally go with the black, not because of the color but they are shorter and look cleaner.

I’d say that the Chevy guy would go with chrome. Lots and lots of chrome.

@davidhibler I’ve got black irons with black graphite shafts and black ferrules, but I’m a minimalist.

Oh you're a day walker! Those hybrid ambidextrous folks... I come from a long line of LH men in my family. Brother, dad, uncle, and Grand dad all LH. Some how I came out as ambidextrous. But golf and writing is all RH. So I'll make an exception for you! 

I may or may not have a brand new LH Rogue ST triple diamond 9° head lying around with no home right now.

I just won the bid on ebay for a good condition used women’s Cobra aerojet max for only $150!!! I was hitting a new one today at our local edwin watts with a price tag of $250 so I’m beyond STOKED. It is a huge upgrade from my second hand 2008 big bertha! It should arrive between may 7 and 9 but my inner millennial is dying just thinking about having to wait😅.

Hmm. Your post prompted me to look for a DF2.1 putter, and there are some interesting prospects on eBay. There are also people trying to sell a 2.1 for $900, and I don't know who is the bigger idiot: The seller or the person who pays that much.

Yes! There are some seemingly oxygen deprived individuals selling and buying BUT every once in a while you can luck out! I saw a scotty cameron blade putter in really good condition and the bidding started at $17🤯… but with 4 days remaining it’ll definitely go for way more… it’s jumped to $74 since 4 hours ago.

I'm ambidextrous,  but dominant left handed on most things.  Golf is right handed,  except for putting,  I swing a putter both ways just as good too.  Marksmanship is another ambidextrous thing I'm good at.

I write RH but eat more often LH. Golf only RH but can putt LH. However realized at 12 I swing a bat much better LH. Archery either side. Marksmanship was better RH but better than average LH and well no1 likes brass in their face. Also for martial arts and boxing also more comfortable LH stance. Dr told my mom when I was kid that I probably was LH but right eye dominant so just do everything RH because it will be easier for me to adapt and learn.

Found a 2.1, 35 inch/69 degrees (stock, but that's about right for me based on playing around with LABs at Golf Galaxy), asking price $300 or best offer, no bids so far. I'll keep an eye on it (bidding ends Thursday) and I might jump in with an offer if nobody has bid.

Then again, somebody has listed a used DF3 (35/69), current bid $157.50 (brand new is $400). I will definitely keep an eye on that.

Rypstick drills have you swing in both directions, and even though I'm as right-handed as it gets, I'm finding it more comfortable to swing lefty as I keep doing the drills. No chance of me going Mickelson here (Phil is a natural righty but learned to play golf lefty because he would mirror what he saw on instructional videos). but I've found it interesting.
