... When I was at East Carolina University it was rated the #1 party school in the country according to Playboy. I bought the magazine to keep as a reminder. When I was working as a DJ in Athens a few years later and took a class at U of Georgia I informed some of my apartment friends that were UG students and they said No, UG was the #1 party school. I showed them the article and they said I didn't read the footnote at the bottom of the page that disqualified UG because Playboy considered UG a "Professional" Party school. In a similar vein GolfspyCG2 is a "Professional" HO and cannot be lumped in with MGS forum members.

One order placed with another couple coming soon. 

Order placed for a pie of Puma GS One white golf shoes really dig the looks.  If I like them I will place an order for black ones.

 

2 orders coming

1st is a PXG Gen5 0311 7.5* head to play around with. Just awaiting PP info on this

 

2nd will be a set of Recoil 95/110 shafts.   Gonna give graphite another shot over the winter

 

Recoil shafts purchased. Went with 95 F4 as they were about $75 cheaper than the Proto 95 F5 version. 
 

Guy seems to have ghosted me on the PXG unfortunately.

... Downlow gets his share of HO attention and deservedly so but I have to say you are a pretty stealthy HO that seems to fly under the radar. 🤪

So did buy a new club recently, and full disclosure did not get fitted nor even demo it, just jumped in (like a good 'ho 🤪) on one of their sales - PXG Gen 5 0311 XF with the PX EvenFlow Riptide CB (50g/5.0).

First time out with it yesterday and so far happy with it. Liking the shape and look of the head .. to my eye it appears slightly smaller than 460cc and definitely more trim vs the Callaway Bertha B21 I was using. Was a little hesitant about getting a CB shaft but it feels nice and balanced, and solid at impact.

First few swings were not awe-inspiring but the last few holes it started to feel good .. so we'll see how it goes!

I'll post numbers and such later, but spent some coin today.  TSR2 driver and TSR2 3 wood are on the way, each with a Ventus Blue (6S and 7S respectively). Also getting my Callaway Apex Pro hybrids reshafted with a Ventus Blue HB.  

Sounds like a fun spending spree!

Was in the Arkansas Golf Shop today so my wife could hit some demo hybrids and irons and recommendations.  She's currently playing some senior shaft Adams hybrids and irons but I'm thinking that, although she needs the longer length than standard ladies irons, they're too heavy and not enough flex for her slower swing.  She liked the Callaway Rogue OS hybrids.  Going to have her talk things over with her swing coach and get his input.  

Bought a cleat tool and a Puma shirt for myself.  

My wife had an old set of Adams Idea clubs and was fitted at our pro shop this past spring with Callaway which she absolutely loves.  She bought the ST Max D driver and ST Max 7w both with Cypher forty 5.0, ST Max OS 5h with Cypher fifty 5.0, then 7 -PW ST Max OS irons with fifty 5.0 and a JAWS 56*. She doesn’t have a fast SS but data showed best results with these shafts. And I think they shortened her shafts as she is barely 5’-5” (and a hundred nothing pounds). Her drives are 170-190ish.  I don’t have any fairway woods but took her 7w to the range yesterday and loved it.  Need a regular flex but the look and feel is very confidence inspiring.  She has some major hand issues so she has all oversized Winn wraps, and I am trying that on my driver.

I’ve been accumulating gift cards and rewards points at various golf stores. Lately I’ve been cashing them in in preparation for a ball fitting project / simulator build for winter garage play. Here’s the current stash that will be going up against a variety of Maxfli balls. TBD on additional ball purchases but it’s a start!

I will probably be doing the same and loading up on some Vice Pro Soft. Something about that ball just works for me. 6 rounds in with it and I only have 1 round not in the 30’s and it was a 41.  $29/dozen is good enough for me

I sprinkled 919 Forged between the 900T and these 223's

The 919F was probably a mistake, though I shot my PB (75) three times with them, they weren't spinning enough for the club/face conditions that I typically present to the ball.

Played 9 holes (only had time to finish 6) and a scramble since I got them. Preliminary results is that they're better than the 919F were, and graphite is nice on the wrists.

Nice variety.  I play the Q-Star Tour and have for a few years.  Love the feel and performance for the price.  Our range uses TourResponse, but I found a real one (non-range) awhile ago and liked it a lot.  Got a great review on this site.  Also found a Chromesoft awhile ago and liked it as well.  May be as good or a bit better than The Q, but need to find it on sale.  I plan to next try the Elixr next, but in the meantime, the Q is my go to.
