College Baseball Player turned Golfer

Recommended Posts

What's going on MGS members?

 

My name is Kyle and I am from Ohio- I've been using MGS for almost a year now but decided recently to start posting and looking at the forums to help my game out, and see what cool new equipment is out there! 

 

I used to be a College Baseball player, but now my passion is golf- I would play everyday if I could and almost wish that I would have started playing earlier in life

I started playing in 2015 -

 

Currently on the road to break 80- best round an 85..

I am not one of those golfers that will overstate my skills or how far I hit it because of an ego thing- If i want to be a single digit handicap then I gotta work for it golf is like baseball in that way ! 

 

For those that want to know or interested in WIB

Welcome Kyle...I grew up in Ohio (Dayton) as well.   That's making good progress if you started two years ago and are already shooting mid 80's.   Lots of good golf, equipment and trip talk going on here, you found the right place.

Good to have you! Never really played baseball myself much but I do enjoy watching if the right teams are playing. Keep grinding!

Welcome Kyle!

 

Like you I was a college ball player as well, transitioned to golf immediately after my forced retirement. Where did you play ball?

Welcome from NE Indiana! I take it the transition from swinging a bat to a club wasn't all that tough for you?

Not at all. Playing both sports made my swing even better. Those who say a golf swing messes up a golf swing and vice versa are wrong ! You become more aware of what's going on!

      Today, I was greeted with a lovely Taylormade iron box.  I walked into the door and saw the box and immediately asked my wife what it was.  She replied with, "I don't know.  You tell me?"  I started going through my mind about all of the searches I've done recently.  I got scared I pocket purchased a club on accident.  I replied with, "I swear babe.  I haven't bought anything.  Especially with out telling you first."  I opened the box and saw the below beauty sitting there.  I picked up the card and was surprised to see I had been selected based on my response to a post.  If I'm being perfectly honest, I can't even remember submitting anything to win the club.  But none the less, I'm thankful for the opportunity. 
      Based on my initial thoughts of looking down at the club at address, it's nice.  I don't have a feeling of oh shoot I have to be good to game these.  The wide top line provides the confidence.  The top line doesn't seem overly wide though.  I'm a single digit handicapper right now and I could easily see myself gaming an entire bag of these.  RANT INCOMING: (I really don't understand why most golfers want to have Blades.  I get the allure of the sleek nature of the irons, but from a performance standpoint, if you can't put little round wear marks in your irons, I really don't believe blades is best.  I know there can be outliers, but double digit handis definitely shouldn't be gaming blades.  The point of irons isn't to look the best while you're at address.  Save looking good for apparel.  I'd rather have an iron that performs amazing but doesn't look the greatest.  I understand the point of look good feel good though).
      In the coming weeks, I plan on providing my unbiased review of this iron.  I'm currently gaming the Taylormade PSI irons.  We'll see how big of a difference a couple years makes for technology.  I love the feel of the PSI's when I flush them.  It seriously feels like butter when cutting through the ball and the grass.  Coming from the S55's, it's amazing the difference in feel and forgiveness.
