So when I clicked on this thread, it took me to posts of October 18th.  Wow, I knew it had been a while since I had anything to post.   So here you go.   These were on order for a bit, but just arived.  Hopefully will get them out for our Turkey Shoot Scramble on Friday.    Temps supposed to be mid 50's but raining. 

Got them with SteelFiber I80 shafts.  Had a chance to hit a few 6 irons on the range today, and the shaft did exactly what they do in my Gen 5,  just start online and hold it very well.  Such a tight dispersion.  Better than any shaft I can recall hitting.

As for the irons, tough to tell much hitting into a 10 mph wind in mid 30's temp, but they felt great, except for the first couple that I hit while getting warmed up.   But pretty consistent high fade, just what I'm looking for.

Honest to god, I'm assembling the same set up minus my Scotty is older. Stunning looking bag, I'm happy to see some others play tour staff bags!

here’s the list as of the article date but we know he is back with the famous Newport  

 

... I didn't realize Tiger switched so much outside of his prime years. But using his Newport GSS 11 years from 1999 to 2010 is longer than many are on tour.

Yeah, and I've said this before, but for those that haven't heard.  Titleist actaully refer to them as a Tour bag now and not a staff bag.   Because they felt calling them just staff bags limited the regular players from buying.   But they felt anybody would want a Tour Bag...ha   I know there's an old line sentiment out there that says if your not a PGA Tour Pro or PGA Golf Professional you shouldn't have a "tour' bag.    But I'm of the mind, play what you want and like, and don't worry about what others say.   I didn't go as far as to get my name on it.    That would kill the resale value of course 🙂

But as for the irons, i'm really looking forward to getting out with them possibly for a 9 hole run this afternoon.

I like that a lot. I think that mentality towards those bags is a bit archaic and not very inclusive. I bought mine at a pawn shop for $40 and it has a local pros name, club, and flag on it but I just call that my alter ego on the course. Those bags are gorgeous and deserve to be shown off. I wish it fit in carts though....

Don't bring it to Bandon.  The caddies will take your clubs out and put them in a carry bag.

I got a Wilson Staff staff bag for free with my name and my former club's name on it.  I wonder if anyone would wonder who that "pro" was?  🤣

No he’s probably not.  Most of the courses with caddies willl do that.  Remember they are double bagging in many cases.  So carrying two Tour bags is no fun chore for anyone.

I've never encountered a course that supplies you caddies. I'm honestly not sure I'd want one. That's like full serve gas, just seems to weird.

Actually I'd love a decent caddie that's giving me advise like I had in Thailand, after 2-3 holes I was getting great help telling me which club to hit where the line is to putt. Shot 2 over par 7 shots better than my cap, I was walking on air such an advantage for me...

I wouldn’t dare do that.  Whenever I’m going to a resort Course with caddies. I always take my lightweight carry bag.  
 

I saw a Mr. Big Shot type pull up in a huge Escalade at whistling straights.  He had a Staff Bsg and all the irons still had the plastic on them.  
 

The bag drop attendant starting switching then to a carry bag and Mr Big Shot said. Hey I just bought that bag yesterday.  The bag drop guy said.  Sir. Show me your PGA Card and we’ll be happy to leave the clubs in it. Otherwise they are going in this bag. 😬😬

Nothing at all wrong with a Staff or Tour bag--- I have several I earned either being on staff Ping ( GASP!) Infiniti and Titleist ( where I had a ball deal only)---- I sorta got on a personal anti advertising jag a few years back. Here the Tourist posers carry staff bags or fancy stand bags. I caan remember at my former course the tourons if you set back and watched would check out my bag. They would come back perplexed seeing old V-Steel Fairways and rusty lead taped Macgregors etc. That was about the time I went on my anti advertising jag. I went to the old school non descript Jones. I do not carry a lot of stuff anyhow. The Jones for me in my state of health handles good. A few weeks back I did transfer my stuff to one of my Titleist staff bags just because one of my sometimes scramble partners is a poster Boy for PXG. Halfway through the round I rationalized I do not need all of that. Went home after the round and went back to the Jones. Yeah I like flying under the radar----- I do have a non descript old school Burton but for me it is heavy and overkill for the small amount of stuff I carry. But yeah if one wants a staff bag either with or without their name on it fine with me

image.png.08adfa58c950c5f63cb929a2aae627cd.pngMerry Christmas to me, from my wife (well, her aunties who always insist on buying me a present...twist my arm, why don't ya).

Full bag fitting (sans putter) at True Spec Beverly Hills (fancy shmancy), scheduled for January 6 - 50% off ($187.50) with code "BFCM50", in case you want to get in on the action.  They're also doing +15% on any gift cards, so for $165 (or so), you end up with a full bag fitting normally $375.  Killer deal.

Anyway - it's more for the experience than anything else, as I've never been fully fitted, and it'll be exciting to have that kind of day in a place like this.  I'll try my best to document as best as I can - this has been a dream for a while now, to get the whole experience, so hopefully I'm in good form that day.  

Oh man I'd kill for an opportunity like that, Damn I was born in the wrong part of the world for golf fitters...

Looking fwd to seeing how this goes for you, lucky Bugger...

That's awesome, should be a really good experience.   I've been to some good fitters, but True Spec isn't anywere near us, so I keep waiting for maybe one day I'll be near them ::)

I stumbled into one in NYC years ago when I was working in Midtown, and it was like I was Charlie walking into the Chocolate Factory.  I just couldn't believe a place like that existed right down the street.  I wasn't able to take advantage of it then, and I missed last year's Black Friday deal, so this feels like a long-time coming.  I'm so curious to see where, if at all (and obviously there will be places), I can see clear gains.  I'm also super curious to see what a REAL fitting looks like - my irons were done at GolfTec, and while an okay process, it was...here are 4 options, pick one, and I went with the cheapest option.  Now knowing so much more (thanks to TXG and the forum) about the fitting process, I'm really excited to try some stuff that I would have been intimidated to try before (no, I'm not trying blades 😉 ).

Cool...I was in NC as few years ago and they had just opened a location at a course near where we were staying but we were playing 36 a day so there was no time to try and schedule on then.   That's the cloests I have come.  But everytime they post on SM about a new location comng, I throw in a bid for Maryland..ha

I was lucky enough to be fit by Ian several years ago in Toronto (it's on their channel if you want a good laugh) and it was the first real truly provessional fitting I had, learned so much spending that 1/2 day with him  and Matt.  

I think the title is Fittings are Just For Buying Clubs or something like that the date was June 2018 I believe)
