What equipment are you thinking about?

Thinking about a 5 wood, maybe even a 7 wood.  

 

Also thinking about a new driver.  Ping G400 Max is on my radar, but if budget allows, I'll go with what a proper fitting suggests. 

 

Also thinking about regripping old irons.  I'm reviewing Golf Pride grips, and I jumped up to mediums. 

They feel great, and I wonder how they'd feel on some of my other irons.  🙂

Haha!

Yes, I have heard the lighting thing. And I imagine it would fend off some gators.

I hit the ball really high, no flip just, sky high.... plus what’s the worst thing that could happen? I get the smack a gator and have a lighting rod if it doesn’t work out. Haha.

I really don't think you want to be Ben Franklin while fighting a gator. It's a slippery slope from there... 😬

 

Edit: I wouldn't mind a 1 iron either. Looks like a lot of fun to try and hit. I do have a 15° 2 iron though and it's super fun to hit when you flush it.

I’ve seen a couple of guys years ago hit 1 iron well occasionally but that was a long time ago in a different galaxy. Haven’t seen one in a bag in a decade.
If you can hit it go for it!! Better man than me.

Yeah, the only problem is I can't hit it. I really shouldn't even be bagging a 2 iron, but I do just because it's fun to hit. It doesn't come out much in tournaments though.

I used to play 1 irons, had a 2 iron a few years ago.

The 3 iron is 19°, and I hit it well most of the time.

Something about giant clubheads throws me off. Not that a 3 wood or a hybrid are giant, but I prefer the look of irons. Always have. More confident that I can put a good strike on the ball.

I honestly thinks it’s the bulge and roll face that gets me. My original drivers probably had a little of it but they were way more flat faced.

Yeah, I think that's my problem with hybrids too. For whatever reason it screws with my head, and makes the sweet spot look even smaller to me. 

I'm shocked I'm ever able to buy a club with how picky I am. Haha

Okay so I demoed (briefly) the TM mini Originial driver and I am pretty darn close to sold on it. Solid 240 carry with super low launch and spin. Could likely tweak it to get a bit more out of it but have to admit I'm a huge fan!

Haven't been a launch monitor recently with driver, but it would be closer to 255 260. I'll try and get some other numbers in the next couple days and really give it a good work through to see really what the difference between the g400 and mini is.

So, would the mini be in your bag as a 3W replacement? Or as a driver replacement? Or, I guess it could be neither.

No idea... I love my 3 wood and my driver. I would lean towards driver though. Lots of the courses here aren't very long so it could be cool to try out in that spot.

I just got myself a new Callaway MD4 lob wedge to replace my fading MD2. Cannot wait to give it a go around the greens!


That’s on my list for this year!

15 degrees is a 1 iron. That’s what they were back in the day when some people (Jack Nicklaus) gamed them.

Tour Exotics 3 wood is in the bag because we are allowed 14 clubs.  It's a great club for pulling balls out of the water or from bushes - you never want to put your hand into anything in Florida unless you are absolutely certain that it's safe.  There are rare wind conditions when I might hit it off the tee on a few holes that I play.
