So far I like it. I would prefer one size less, but it’s comfortable. Definitely try all three sizes installed of possible, I thought this one was right on out of the wrapper, but feels a little large on the putter. Could be the width of the stability shaft??  IDK, it’s still good.

Just picked up a set of Ping i530 irons and I love them, love the way they look and feel. First clubs I have felt I can shape my shots and decide whether I’m playing a draw or a fade, also added 15-20 yards per club. Overall awesome set of irons if you’re in the market!

Congrats! Everything I’ve read and watched on these suggests Ping really brought a great set to market. I may ask to try them out next time I’m near the Ping fitting facility at Kierland. Any chance you’ll be posting a more in-depth unofficial review of your experience with them?

I just bought some MG4 Wedges and what a difference. I had some old worn out Vokeys and the distance change has messed up my short game (not that it was any good). I am hoping to get out in this scorching heat this week and figure out these distances. 

 

On another note, I am looking to purchase a putter with toe hang. Currently reviewin the TM spyder. Any suggestions?

As much as I would love to do that I don’t have a simulator to be able to track a lot of all that and even if I did I have sold my old clubs so I wouldn’t be able to compare, next time for sure tho!

It wasn’t me, rather my wife for a Father’s Day gift. But we came across Devereux Golf (hadn’t seen it before) and snagged a few items from their site.

A Pinehurst T and a new golf towel ‘Golf is my Therapy’. Luckily she knows the latter is accurate for me.

The Wilson Buckingham was tested as one of the Most Wanted a few years ago and is only $130 new. It's got the Spider shape, but it's milled. Also, Callaway seems to be having a big sale on their eBay store, so Odyssey putters from 2021/22 are going for cheap in "like new" condition. I have an Odyssey #10 on the way and it was only $150.

Picked up a Callaway Big Bertha v-series heavenwood at my local golf shop in their used club bucket. Older club but got it for $30 and wanted to play around before committing more money to it. I hit a few shots with it on the range and it definitely launched high - tendency was a high draw that sometimes was more of a hook. I definitely see the appeal of it but will need to play around some more. I'm intrigued by the v-sole for making it playable other than just off the tee.

I've been try to find the right club or two between my 4 hybrid and 3 wood. I love the idea of a club that doesn't go much longer than my hybrid but launches high and lands soft for long par 3s and tight/short par 4s when I need to hit a fairway. Especially playing in Michigan where we generally don't get a lot of extra rollout. Currently I play a 3 hybrid that I can tee up a bit for higher launch but its more of a fairway finder club than a hit in to par 3 club for me - probably more mental block

Nice! I wouldn't be surprised if it becomes your favorite club in the bag. I recently added a 7 wood to my bag, and I am really happy with it! Similar to your statement about it going a similar distance to your hybrid, my 7 wood and 4 iron are fairly similar in distance (7 wood slightly more flight distance, but less run out), and I've found that it gets a lot of use in my bag. It's just so easy to hit, and is quickly becoming my go-to club when I just need to keep something in play.

That is one of my hopes! I think I need to shift mentality with the 7 wood specifically to just let the club do the work. Really going after it is going to lead too much spin

My cover has started to wear out at the magnet and it's about time to get a new one.

After evaluating the current performance of my PXG wedges - 2 years old, for example not spinning enough on many shots, I'm replacing them.  Earlier discussions also led me to get a 50 degree GW instead of the 52 I've been using.  This will give me better gap between my PW and GW.

HAPPY GOLFER!!!

My used 9 wood got here yesterday.  So excited, time to test it and maybe have it in the bag for Thursday night league.

Opening the box it sure looked like the biggest 9 wood I'd ever seen.

C'mon eBay!  9 degrees loft is not a 9 wood.

You will love this club! I have the 4i with a 85g Project X black shaft and it’s one of my go-to clubs. Super forgiving up and down the face and still allows me to move it both ways which I love!

I was going to buy that towel but seemed like it would be way too big for the bag. 40" length I believe on the towel just seemed like a lot.

@Wib081. I got those exact shoes at a Ross for silly cheap too!  I've enjoyed the hybrid spikes.

 

So I saw this for $2 and something made me think I've seen add for Teardrop recently.   Yup,  they have rolled out some new convertible putters.  Roll face technology seems to have been a fad though.   This thing is heavy!!!  It's quite abused though and not sure it's recoverable or even worth anything.
