Back in the market for golf shoes.  I did keep the one pair of Jordan ADG that I have not tried yet, so may try those.  Tongue is a little long and hits my shin and is a bit uncomfortable.  Tried the Footjoy Premiere for two rounds and my heel just slips out too much.  Tried the smaller size, but they are too tight.  

Tried on the Adidas XT 360 and they were extremely comfortable so may get a pair of those.  Just not sure yet.

Also hit the TSi3 again and had really good numbers and extremely tight dispersion.  17 yards from left to right after 8 shots.  274 average carry with 298 total and 2750 spin.  Definitely something to consider.

After another poor driving day only hitting 1 fairway, I got the big stick on my mind. So should it be the ST-Z or the Epic Speed?  Decisions Decisions

Both seem to be getting great reviews... are you still hitting the Gen2 or something else now?

I have been playing the 0211 driver since the season started.  It had been longer and straighter than anything I had played up til now. All of a sudden I can't seem to hit it straight to save my life. I'm thinking a change in visuals may help. This is the life of the club ho

Just got an email this morning that my order from Srixon is on its way. They don’t tell you what’s coming, but the only thing left from my order back in March is my ZX5 4-5 irons. So, hopefully it’s both of them and not just one.

My buddy got an off-brand mallet putter and let me roll a few putts with it. It did feel really stable and easy to get started on line, I might need to get my hands on some mallets at the shop up the street and see if it can beat out my Evnroll

Had a couple pairs of these last year, but ended up getting rid of them.  Comfortable shoes with very nice traction for a spikeless.  Word of caution, they are going to be very stiff compared to the codechaos and most other shoes for the matter.   Think of more of a dress shoe with a very comfortable insole.   Leather was soft and nice, but due to that creased very quickly as you can imagine.

At Costco yesterday, I took a much close look at the wedges after reading a thread on the MGS forum. Pondering... Will likely give the KS gloves a shot next time I'm there...

The flex in the codechaos is I think what’s causing the pain later in a round! 
 

its the GFORE or footjoy premiere prefer the look these days.

Hit the TSi2 hybrid today with the Tensei White 90s shaft. The weight felt great and I didn’t have nearly as many left shots. But they didn’t feel as great if I was a touch heavy which the cobra’s rails really seem to help with. 
 

still, I think it might be worth experimenting with a used one or even give the TS3 a shot as I held the TSi3 and the shape was actually pretty good looking to me. 
 

also hit the Epic Max LS again. I just love the feel. But I don’t like the stock shaft offerings which makes it hard to tell about a fit. Might be time to book a real fitting and see how it stacks up. 
 

rolled a few putts with the ER5B as I’ve always been a fan of that shape but tend to stay with blade shapes. The new cobra putters are legit too, as is PINGs 2021 lineup. Not in the market for a putter, but for those that are there are so many good options.

Close to giving up on hybrids. 

Previously, I struggled with long irons (i consider my 5 and maybe my 6 iron to be long irons), but have been able to hit those better naturally with swing improvements.

I feel like I just can't hit the ball well with a hybrid. Something about the hybrid, combined with how i swing the hybrid, makes me want to hit pull hooks, which is the complete opposite of my miss with irons which is usually a push. 

Thinking about a 4 utility iron or 4 SGI iron.

I have a love/hate relationship with my hybrid. On one hole I’ll crush it. The next one a long par 3 and I’ll shank the same club. 🤦🏻‍♂️

Oh, I'm looking at the DSG deal where you pick a winner and can get the the Epic Speed for free... I think Rahm has a pretty good chance so I think it's just a good gamble! Also I really want the Epic Speed LS.... basically I'm trying to justify buying a new driver lol

What should I do?

Took me a while to get used to hybrids. Now that I put the work on, I hit them much better. Way more consistent than I ever was with a fairway wood. For utilities get yourself maybe a hogan, that has a v sole. Otherwise great reviews on Srixon and sub70 UIs. Alternatively a zx4 4 or 5 iron might fit the bill. Just make sure you get it for what you need. Zx4 will fly high. Other utilities usually lower than hybrids. Hybrids were designed for long iron distance with mid iron trajectory. Good luck on your journey.
