Just ordered a 54* Vokey SM9 to replace my current SM8.  Probably could have gone another year if needed, but my mother in law asked what I wanted and I said that would be great.  

I need to upgrade my Mother in Law! 🤣  Or I need to teach her to appreciate golf! 😂

Just burned a bunch of DSG gift cards I was sitting on and picked up a 60 degree SM9 M Grind in Jet Black, and a 54 degree SM9 S Grind in Jet Black.

Promptly took them across town to a local club builder to have my gamer Steelfiber i110's put in them, have the 54 bent to 55 and the 60 bent to 59.  (Yes, I know what that does to the bounce.)  I also took my irons in to have them all re-gripped and have the swing weight issues I posted about in another thread fixed.  I'll update that thread as well.  Pics soon.

Well, after years of go no go.. I have made the switch from my Mizuno MMC MP-18 to Mizuno Pro 225 with Nippon Modus 105. Should have them by next week. Looking forward to starting new season with new sticks.. Hopefully my game doesn't go to the crapper.

I was this close to buying a rogue max triple diamond LS as a demo model this year from my local shop, they wanted $549 used and Callaway sells at $499 new... So I bought from Callaway. Really wanted to support my local club but just couldn't swing it. See what I did there 😂😂😂

Agreed, but... If you're talking about a private club, check if the pro is actually the de facto owner of the inventory .. ie. sales are the pro's profit and not the club's (at my place it's the club 🤷‍♂️).

Less of a buy and more of a made -- though I did buy all the components at some point.  Long story short I saw an add for a shorty club you can swing indoors and thought 'that would take me 10 minutes to make' from what I have lying around.  I'm also figuring that it's better actual feedback for me than the back scratcher I occasionally swing in front of my wife's full length mirror.  Voila!!!  Another thing that I can irritate my better half with.  😉  She's looking at me like I'm the weirdest man alive right now as I walk around the house with it.  I suspect she thinks I made it for our toddler.

There's a set of Ping eye 2 red dot irons for sale that I'm thinking of buying except the 7iron is missing, the red dot suits me and $200 NZ is a good buy. But i use the 7 iron Alot so not sure I will buy, maybe drop the loft on the 6iron any ideas appreciated..

Bidding completes tomorrow for the ping i E1 series near me. Oddly excited to see if I manage to snag them for a deal. If current bidding holds it would be cheaper than buying the shafts alone.

If you want them,  you could just try and source a red dot 7 iron as a follow up purchase.  I know you purchase on ebay and there are several of them available.

Just finished turning over my bag by replacing my Nike VRS Covert X irons and wedges with PXG 0311 XP Gen 5's, as well as my old Nickent Omen putter with a PXG Raptor. Can't wait to get them out on the course. An interesting thing is that, club for club, the new PXG's have lower lofts than my Nike's - ex. Nike 6i is 27 deg. vs PXG 6i at 23 deg.

I replaced my driver earlier this year with a Cobra LTDx Max, and my woods last year with a Titleist TS2 3w, and Titleist TS1 4h and 5h. The last two clubs have been nothing but money!

In the bag:

Cobra LTDx Max 9.5 deg.

Titleist TS2 3 Wood

TaylorMade SIM Max 3-Hybrid (from my son-in-law)

Titleist TS1 4- and 5-hybrids

PXG 0311XP Gen 5 6w - Gap

PXG Sugar Daddy II 52 and 56 (1 weak) wedges

PXG Raptor putter

OnCore Elixr 2022/Kirkland Signature (of course!)

Right bought 6 clubs tonight, 1 3 5 Mizuno 2004 Widex ll woods with ladies shafts, plus 4 6 SW Widex ll irons with matching shafts. Will try 4+6 irons and if play ok will leave as is or try the shafts in my 5+6 MP57 irons, you can see the Widex driver is 12deg so probably will use it as strong fairway wood? Body has improved after I attacked it with a massage gun, might try these Widex clubs tomorrow if still feeling alittle better.

Managed to find a pair of older Mizuno headcovers to go with my cart bag. Should be a great match with carbon effect:original_f7b79027-0382-4006-b976-9abe063bbd55_20221212_114824.jpg.0377fb292b74909b57f104e60fb5f4b7.jpg20220523_211730.jpg.24d4d4f05afbbc553bfc8bfefb543c46.jpg

My Yes! Tracy putter has a challenger on the way.

I did something today I never would have done without trading two clubs in on a 90 day playability. I traded back my Launcher XL 21* and Rogue ST 23* hybrids (the Launcher is a great club, my TSi2 just gaps better, the Rogue 5H is meh.. my 5i is just as good) and got back $449 in credit.

I blew just about the entire wad on a Scotty Cameron Phantom X 5.5 putter with a custom Matador mid size grip (I’m not a fan of the Pistelero). The sucker came to $429, which makes it the most expensive putter I’ve ever bought. This was a move I’ve been wanting to make for a while… every time I roll the 5.5 I love it more. I think I finally found a mallet I like. 🤞🏻
