Bumping this one! 😎

The last couple years have been wild, including a deployment, retirement from the Navy and move from San Diego to Colorado. They also involved me taking a somewhat unintentional, year plus long break from playing. That's right - my last round was 2/9/23 and the only time I've touched my clubs is when I've moved them around. 😐

But now that I'm settled in CO and Spring appears to actually be here, I'm planning on getting back into the game that has brought me so much joy over the years. 

I look forward to reconnecting with those I've met or interacted with and meeting new people as well!

Good to hear from you again and welcome back.   I thought your plans were to move back to Hawaii ?

Thanks! Ha, the Hawaii move fizzled out after looking at buying a house out there. Things lined up perfectly in CO and we're really happy out here!

Thanks to an impromptu spring 'winter' over the weekend, I haven't played yet, but I scooped up a Ping G430 Max. I'm going to need all the forgiveness I can get! And I'm sniffing around a set of Mizuno Pro 243 4-PW as well. Hooray for new clubs! 😁

Those look nice... cannot go wrong with Mizuno's.  Weren't you previously playing Srixon's?  When I was in my "which one's" down select a few years ago, I think it was you among a few others who were extolling the magic of the v-sole... but maybe I'm wrong?  Congratulations on the retirement and return to golf!

Thanks! I still have my Z785s, but I played Mizunos for years so I'm excited to have a set back in my bag.
