Hi! Just introducing myself. I'm an equipment junkie, mid 40s. Hcap cycles between 6-9, been at high end since rupturing my left Achilles 18 months ago. (Tennis is just a treacherous sport...). I just joined a club just south of SF and can get out to hit balls 2x and play 1x per week. At this point just joyous and blessed to be able to play again.


Current play:

Titleist 915d driver 10.5 w Accra dymatch2.0 m3

Callaway big Bertha 5 wood

Titleist 915 2/4 hybrids

Mizuno jpx850 forged 5-gw /Nippon ns tour

Titleist 58/62 wedges

Odyssey #9 flip face putter with SS flatso 1.0


My backup set are circa 1973 powerbilt citation 2-10 irons and 1/3/5 persimmons. That's for when I need to rediscover my swing and mojo.


I look forward to doing more than lurking!

Welcome from the Pacific Northwest!  Glad you joined us, and glad you are back in the game.  


My wife has the same clubs as your backup set.  She lugged them around in a yellow leather cart bag back in 1973 when she was on her High School golf team in Spokane.  When I started dating her about 12 years ago, I told her she was losing distance with those clubs so she bought a new set of Cobra SS clubs.  Last year, she pulled out that PowerBilt driver and smacked the same distance as her TaylorMade RBZ Stage 2 driver.  Her new clubs are much easier on her body to swing, so she's not going back.

Welcome from a fellow newbie!

"Golf is deceptively simple and endlessly complicated; it satisfies the soul and frustrates the intellect. It is, at the same time, rewarding and maddening--and is, without a doubt, the greatest game mankind has ever invented." - Arnold Palmer
