Funny story, I was at GG last weekend waiting to hit the the Demo T400 they had just gotten in.  The sales rep goes to the guy in line before me and asks what can he help him with.    Customer: "

... I am pretty sure this applies to 99.9% of our posts here. 🤪

Picked up a set of these today (4-10) with the Vizard Graphite shaft.  At 85gr,  the shafts may be a little light,  but I wanted to give graphite a try.  Gotta figure out gapping for the bag;  even th

Thinking about an inexpensive mallet putter to mess around with over the winter. All of my putters are blades and I'm curious to see if a mallet would help me improve my putting. I notice that my putter head will twist on me a few times per round and mess with my start line, wondering if a larger & heavier head would help quiet things down.

Thinking the exact same thing. Might try to pick up a used one or a cheaper new one like Clevelands offerings, plus I think there is something to the variable groove they and others have.

basic frame using roll stock cores for vertical, laminated cross beams, and corrugated sleeves for spacers. the CAD 3D shows only one side attached. This is the basic frame concept.  Have some pieces cut as well to take home and play around with .

how much cost savings is using cardboard to whatever materials they use for a normal frame ( wood, PVC, metal ???) you could most likely save hundreds on material for the frame ?

Would also love a simulator but where would I set it up, and when will it start paying for itself vs the range and actual golf. Since I can technically golf year round (albeit wet and cold) I can see why folks in my old neck of the woods would have one.

I’d kill for a skytrak right about now! I’d probably be limited to wedges in here tho... unless I built a heated shed for winter golf purposes, my neighbors just got one that you could fit a car in.

Thinking of tinkering with the idea of a 10.5* driver with a low launch/low spin shaft. Having a trackman session today to dial in my driver experiment but worried i may not be getting enough launch. Maybe if i win a driver contest (or a testing opportunity) I can test this theory out before actually getting fit again.

since it is what I use every day at work, free 🙂   I can't imagine the materials would cost much if I were to create a kit that could be sold.

I've been looking for another tee club to use on shorter par 4's or where some water or fairway bunkers just call for a shorter shot. Right now, I do not game any fairway woods as I get along much better with hybrids and have a 17* degree that is effectively a 4/5 wood. I am testing the Hogan UiHi so that may become an option for me, but with my current bag setup I'm thinking strong 3 wood, mini driver, or even a second driver at a higher loft.

I've tried some stronger 3 woods. I just moved on from testing an Adams Super XTD at 14.5. Was long, but no more better dispersion than my driver. I picked up a x2 hot 3 deep pro at 14.5. Only had range time, but have really been impressed. The only problem is it sits open and I hit nothing but fades. I can live with that, but thats the ball flight from my driver and in an ideal world this secondary tee club would be easy to draw. So I just made a move on a Callaway Mini 1.5 at 12 degrees. Will probably bump it to 13 or 14 to close it a touch and we'll see. Still have an eye out for a F9 Tour Length at 12*. Maybe a PING rapture. SLDR?

I have a question for anyone who plays a 48* gap wedge, or those of you who are better at this wedge set up thing than I am...
My Rogue X irons had a 46* gap wedge. The lofts were so strong in that set of irons, I had to give up something somewhere, so I used a 52* 56* setup at the bottom of my bag and dropped my 58*.
The 52* - 56* gapped very well behind the 46*, but there were times I really missed having a 58* for short side bunker or flop shots around the green. I made do by opening up the 56, but...
My question is, now that my GW is 48*,  should I go
52-58
54-58
52-56 current set up
I'm just wondering what you would do. It will be a painless switch financially, as I have over a month left on a 90 day playability with my current wedges.
*** I should also note that the 0211 GW is a lot better to chip and pitch with than the Rogue X AW, which was very "hot" off the face. I find myself using the 0211 GW now for the greenside shots I was using my 52* for.***

My GP is 48* as well and I use to have a 52*, 56* and 60*. I changed up my bag about 2 months ago and got rid of the 52* and 56*. So now my wedge grouping is GP 48*, 54* and 60*. This seems to suit my game well.

Yeah, it might be the same thing with me, Tony... I'm not missing the 56* either.

I went with @chisag's recommendation of 52* bent to 53, and a 58*. So far (early days) I couldn't be happier with the 58* Vokey SM7. The M grind on it works very well for me, it's so easy to open it up when I need to, and it's been great from the bunker. I like it much more than the 56*.

I'm not too sure about the 0211 gap wedge though. It seems to play short to it's loft, if that makes sense. I'll wait until the weather warms up and see if that changes. If not I'll see if I can find a 48* LH Vokey somewhere... you know how lucky us lefties are with those type of searches. 🙄

I’ve been saving up for a few months for a Skytrak. The Rapsodo MLM has been a temptress, especially with the holiday sales that have been available. I’m not sure it has the full functionality I’m seeking though.

Winter appears to be upon us in MO. I’ve had a net set up for a while but generally miss many more ways than left and right. I’m hoping this would allow me to hone in on some faults without the need to bang buckets at the range. 

We recently welcomed our 2nd boy.   Time for golf was already a premium with our 1st.  I’m hoping this allows me to sneak in rounds and range time during naps.

I’m also the stickler on our family’s budget. This has been good to drill in the need to follow our budget and set a good disciplined example of how it can be used for frivolous things too.

As he moved the door aside to retrieve the 4w from the stash, there was a glow which spoils the exposure settings & renders all pictures useless....
