I’ve been thinking about an Apple Watch for some time now. And look what I received for an early Father’s Day present from my daughter today! I will be using this 44mm Apple 6 with arccos caddy on my next round!58DE77A7-994C-472F-88F7-E19A1253D0A8.jpeg.131fcc145abacc6da2585f94bda3c5af.jpeg

So, ever since I got my PXG 0211 Driver, I have really loved this club.  Been thinking about getting fit for the rest of the set this summer but have some concerns.  One of the guys that play regularly in our Saturday points game got fit for the whole bag last November.  He has the 0211’s but with Stiff MMT graphite shaft.  Here’s the rub....he shot 100 before he got fit....6 months later, he still shoots 100, using the PXG’s.  Now for the other issue: my bag has Cobra King F8 fairways and hybrid followed by WilsonnStaff D7 irons then Cleveland Zipcore wedges(50*/54*/58*). Putter is EVNROLL ER2.

I am currently shooting in the low 80’s and winning money....making birdies via approach shots and putts.  Why would I need to upset this good run this summer by changing out my bag?

Yup, change is not always good.

I think he’ll take care of the Veterans.  It’s good marketing and the right thing to do.

Awesome! I'm itching to go demo the various options, but I don't want to waste my Pro/Fitter's time until I am closer to ready...

I didn’t see the Mavriks on that 2021 list, (probably because they came out a year earlier?) but don’t sleep on them. I just got a set last week and I feel like I’m home again after going from the rogue x to the pxg 0211’s for a brief time. ( @Ben_Howell34 pm sent.)

I just got done testing all the irons you mentioned in your first post and the Mavriks were the winner. 
Im looking at your sig, and see you play the X-20 irons. The Mavriks will have that familiar Callaway iron look to them when looking down at them. That “look” might not mean much to you, but I find it puts me at ease. 

It has begun to dawn on me that certain OEMs work best for me in specific clubs. 
PIng drivers, Callaway hybrids and irons and blade putters always feel right and look good to my eye.

I’m open to any brand or style wedge, and still haven’t found that unicorn FW wood, although the Rogue 15* (grading on a curve here 🙄) comes close.

I get some ppl don't like wearing watches (like shotscope). But I'll give my experience bc I've been very pleased with the shotscope v3 and it was my favorite golf purchase in the last few years. Best thing off the bat is price vs arccos, much rather pay onetime 240 versus a yearly subscription. Its small and I don't notice it while swinging. I barely interact with it during the round as it's just pick the club and swing (no remembering tap function). It's been accurate, you will usually have to make some minor edits to your round after but never takes me more than 5 min (plus I honestly like to review my round). However biggest compliment I will give is to the shotscope support. They honestly take feedback from users and introduce them into the app. I have submitted two suggestions and within a few weeks the additions were added (simple stuff like describing their statistics better). Anyone who has used shotscope over the last year can see how much the app has improved.

Quick question on shotscope. When you're spending that time making edits to the round, are you doing that more on your phone/app or on a computer based platform?

Fine by me!  As long as I get to swing it! haha Bombing it past @Lacassem is a taller task though.  

I hope its an absolute missile launcher for you.  Or maybe I hope it doesn't fit you at all and I can trade you for it... I'm still undecided there.  hahaha

I think I’m in love….. with a driver? 😱

I hit the 425 SFT again today and it’s like point and shoot for me. I’ve played the 400 Max since the day it came out, and it’s been my all time favorite driver. I’ve hit just about everything since it’s release, and nothing was able to get it out of my bag. The latest to try was the Epic Max, but no bueno. It was good, but not better.

I can’t believe I’m saying it, but the SFT is.

It’s a model I’d never have tried, since I don’t fight a slice. My buddy is a 5 handicap and has a 410 driver he just demolishes. I always assumed it was the plus or low spin version, but he recently told me it was the SFT and I couldn’t believe it. From everything I’ve read about this club and the x amount of yards it’s draw biased, I figured both of us would be hitting balls down our respective foul lines. Me to right field, him to left.

THIS THING GOES DEAD STRAIGHT.

Thank you PGASS for your 90 day playability guarantee. Goodbye Epic Max. Hello 425 SFT.
G400 Max, I’ll always love you, but this one is younger and prettier. You were so good to me, and I’ll never forget you, but it’s time for you to go sit in the closet. 😉

No no I kid, with where my game is at hitting past 250 would be a plus. Working on getting the delivery right but of course time is tight.
