I like the “quiet” part of the electric but still not convinced on the range. I drive a lot of miles per year.

The older generation golf carts didn’t have the juice to go the miles we FL Ole Farts need, I’ve pushed more than a few electric golf carts.  The new generation like Carls look interesting.  Our homes were built with a cart garage with electric charger hookup.

Electric may be next cart.

Bought 4 Hirzl Gripp Fit gloves on Amazon. With as hot as it is right now I wanted to try these since they can be washed/rinsed-out, and they have a good bit of Lycra on them and no synthetic leather that feels hotter to me than regular leather. Putting them in play tomorrow.

Who hasn’t been there? I’ve learned to just go with it. When it arrives you can decide to try it out or sell it. 

Well I decided to try it today and it actually didn’t play too bad. Had a couple snap hooks but I’m guessing that was more swing related. Gonna give it another go tomorrow and see what happens. I was playing a different course today so hard to get a read with distances. Tomorrow I play my normal course so should have a better read on it. 
 

The real surprise today was the P790’s. They felt so good and meet a nice middle ground between a super thin top line and the thicker 699 pros. 
 

The reminder strips were a bad idea. I have small hands and prefer to put grips on without any tape to help with size. That isn’t possible with the strips and it lets the air out. I will give it a few more rounds to see if I like the idea of them then will probably go the align route. 
 

Also not thrilled with the Z Star Diamonds. Prefer the AVX so will probably try to trade my 2+ dozen for some 2022 AVX’s.

... Grip evolution has been pretty interesting. When I first started almost every grip made had a reminder and when I found one of the few without one, the Tour Velvet Round, I switched and never went back as I have strong grip, worked the ball with different grip positions and always disliked reminder ribs. Then reminder grips from all OEMs started to fade away. Golf Pride simply bringing back the reminder but under the Marketing of Align is a little stroke of genius.

On top of the 3w coming, I grabbed a Tensei av white 65x with xlink to try in driver. Also want to try the blue for more launch but can’t find that shaft in 65x anywhere besides in a new driver from Callaway.

Jon Sherman is the founder and author on Practical Golf; seems to post a lotta good info about playing the game of golf  (ie. on course coaching, and not swing instruction).

The first part of the book is all about "Managing Expectations" - which I really really need.....

Then he goes into.. "Strategy", "Practice" (he also does a podcast with Adam Young) and "Mental Game".

Lots of charts, tables, data, illustrations to help reinforce ideas. The whole thing looks very well produced and presented, and really looking forward to digging through it!

His podcast with Adam young is the bomb. I was tempted to get his book but I already obsess about golf too much

Shafts in of themselves aren’t going to increase launch. It’s your swing that affects that. The shaft is there to give weight and feel. If either are off for your swing or could negatively impact your results. 
 

When it comes to launch you need to evaluate your swing path, face to path, aoa, dynamic loft and where you are making contact on the face. 
 

Also evaluate what those do to spin

I'm looking forward to hearing what you think. I'm planning on picking it up soon, things have just been a bit crazy here lately and reading time is at a premium. I can say for certain I enjoy the podcast Jon and Adam put out is one of my favorites.

My set is definitely different than my sig, but i haven't updated my sig for a while. But been gaming the Rogue ST LS for a while, my Mizuno JPZ 921 hot metals. Bought some wedges though, seeing if i like the Vokey SM9 wedges or the Ping Glide 4.0 better. 

I'm known for going through different iron sets, but what i actually churn through the most is grips. I think i'm sticking with the Iomic 1.8 stickys, though i have some gripmaster leather grips sitting in the garage that want a shot lol.

I bought a Callaway Rogue ST Max D driver recently and am liking it so far.  It's much more forgiving than my old driver and it seems to launch farther the easier I swing.

Also just for the heck of it, I got a couple dozen TaylorMade RBZs to try out.

I posted about this elsewhere but I am so firmly in the honeymoon phase it is unbelieveable. I bought a 12* Speedzone Xtreme to test against my 9* Speedzone SZ (same shaft in both) and the early returns are amazing. My dispersion is much tighter and launch is obviously significantly up but really I just feel like all my strikes (both centered and otherwise) end up in about the same place distance wise. I didn't have any poor strikes off the tee, missed 1 fairway and overall just felt so in control of my driver. I will need to revisit this post in a month and see if I still feel this way. The only thing I can see happening is I continue to hit this driver so well that I decide to try my 9* again because of renewed confidence....or just trying to get back an extra 10 yards I am probably giving up. I should probably just sell the 9* head to prevent this from happening...
