Still thinking about a driver, but every video I watch about the 2019 and 2020 offerings pushes me in the direction of sticking with my G410 LST.

I've hit most of the new offerings for 2020 and in my opinion that is the best idea.  G410 is still one of the best drivers out there;  only one that I might switch for would be one of the Honma offerings.

I'm actually trying to hunt down an M6 to mess with, but I'm going to look into Honma, too!

They’re doing fittings one-on-one now like PXG! I’ve been in contact with the rep that covers Louisiana and if he doesn’t work the big demo day up here, I’m going to meet him somewhere on the Mississippi coast or New Orleans to try the driver. I was connected to him via Instagram messaging. The 747 Tour V irons were the best in my fitting, I couldn’t pass-up a set of Srixons at cost, so no longer doing an iron fitting with him.

I'm thinking about either a custom driver or putter headcover. I already have my Manly Sea Eagles driver cover (see below), so I'm leaning more towards a putter cover.

The head cover matches your hat. For some reason I've always hated Manly, even though Rugby league hasn't been of much interest to me until the last few years.

I hear (have not hit it yet) the new Mizuno driver is pretty good as well!  Pretty forgiving and spin numbers seem to be decent too.  Might want to try it being that most of us I assume skip over Mizuno woods.  Just a thought.

... I think the Mizuno MP600  was the peak with drivers and Mizuno drivers pretty much fell off the map after that. Last years ST190 really put Mizuno drivers back into the conversation and I agree the ST-200 at $50-100 less than most other OEM's is a must demo for 2020.

I have seen many reviews on it with most people touting how good they are (especially at a lower price than most).  I agree, last year Mizuno started to get back into conversation with a lot of golfers, this year maybe they will get into more bags.

I have $100 worth of gift cards burning a hole in my pocket that are carryovers from Christmas.

 

Went to the local shop today to see what was in stock and to see what caught my eye.

 

I was super impressed with PING’s hoofer 14 bags. Super light and what looks like a great design.

 

The Glide 3.0 wedges look awesome. Of all the clubs I carry, the 52 is the most frequently used. I need to love that club and right now, I don’t love mine. Address is the most important look IMO and this suits my eye so well.

 

As far as putters go, I was hoping to see a Heppler ZB in stock...no such luck. Believe it or not, the stroke lab 9 had the best results for a short look. Another putter I was super impressed with was the Frontline ISO.

 

On the sale rack...a reduced price set of in stock C300 forges. I’m glad I’m no longer an impulse shopper.

 

As always, I bright my business manager for purchase approvals

I’d love to think that in 10-15 years, the LH options for clubs will be even better than what we’ve seen.

You should have heard when she picked up the new Odyssey triple track. Daddy, so pretty.

... I guess I am past the thinking stage. One more week of PT for my herniated disc then off to Phoenix for the next 3 months! It has been a brutal 2.5 months but I feel really good again, other than a little leg numbness that keeps getting better everyday. Cobra Xtreme and Speedzone 5 wood heads arrived today and I do believe my bag is set for 2020. 😜

Cobra Xtreme 9* Tour Length driver ... Tensei Orange shaft
Cobra Speedzone 5 wood ... Atmos Blue TS shaft
TaylorMade UDi TP 2 iron ... KKage 80hy shaft

SM6 53* F Grind ... Recoil 110 shaft

... I will also take my P760's with Recoil Prototype 95's and Z Forged with Modus 120's.

 I'm pondering a Odyssey O-Works Black #7 38 inch Tank Putter.   I'm a #7 homer and having one a little heavier and longer would be a nice option for me to have.

First it’s a great putter, one of the best feeling I ever owned BUT I sold mine.
Those little “hinges” kept getting bent in small particles of sand and yes Odyssey knows about this as they replaced one of mine N/C before I gave up on the putter.
