Recommended Posts

Meanwhile back in the states today, more golf was being played on the PGA Tour as the rain delayed Barbasol Championship wrapped up.   Troy Merritt took the win with an impressive 23 under par.  Birides were a lot more plentiful in Kentucky than Carnoustie. 

 

Note this was only Merritt's second round with the Raw V6's.

Congrats to Troy!  You could see the emotions in him when they interviewed him after the win.  He had to go back and qualify for the PGA Tour in the web.com finals last year, so you probably won't see a more humble and appreciative winner on Tour this year.  Such a big deal to a guy who has struggled mightily for awhile.

A win I was really really happy to see.  He got his first and only other tour win here in the DC area 3 years ago at the Quicken Loans Invitational, known locally as "Tiger's Tournament"  he went really low that weekend as well at -18 on a very tough Robert Trent Jones Course, that hosted the first several Presidents Cups back in the mid to late 90's.    He had some big names in the field as well,  Tiger, Rickie, Justin Thomas and Bill Hass.

 

He genuinely seems like such a nice guy.

Nice to see that D300 getting some work. Wilson clearly can hold its own.

Great win for Troy, Wilson Staff, and Boise State.  Love my D300 FW and hybrids; thinking about picking up the driver.

GO BRONCOS! Great win for Troy! Lots of talk about him around here! I hope he does well enough in the FedEx cup to qualify for the Masters...we'll see

      This review coincided with the National D7 Challenge that Wilson Staff ran through the first 3 months of the season.   To be eligible for the testing, forum members had to go to a Wilson Demo Day or local golf store and demo the D7 iron and see how much distance they gained. 
      As a result the selected members received a full set of D7 irons.  This testing is also a milestone for MGS of sorts as it marks the first official club test for our women members.  So we're excited to have a couple of them chiming in on what we are sure will be some very helpful and insightful reviews. 

      The Testers are as follows:
      @Steve2100                                     Stage 1                 Stage 2
      @Tarheelvolvo                                  Stage 1                 Stage 2
      @JohnSmalls                                   Stage 1                  Stage 2
      @GeekingGolf                                  Stage 1                   Stage 2

      It’s been a while since I posted but it’s time to update what is in my bag for my first season of professional golf.
       

       
      There are definitely some improvements that I’m looking forward to but overall I’m pretty happy with my bag so far. It helps that this setup has me -2 thru 54 holes of tournament golf (and $1,200 in winnings) since the driver, 3wood and wedges went in the bag on June 23rd.
       
      So here is what is in my bag.
       
      Driver: Titleist TS3 - Diamana White Board 70X tipped 1” & 1” short
      3wood: Titleist TS3 - Diamana White Board 80X
      Driving Iron: Titleist 712u - Accra 110i X
      Irons: Titleist 714 AP2 4-PW - KBS C-Taper 130 X
      Wedges: Vokey SM7 - Dynamic Gold X100
      Putter: Evnroll ER2 - P2 Aware Grip
      Ball: Titleist ProV1 Yellow
      Glove: Under Armour Iso-Chill
      Range Finder: Precision Pro NX7 Pro
      Speed Trainer: Golf Stick Pro
       
      Carry Distances per GCQuad
      Dr (8.5*) - 290
      3w (14.25*) - 265
      2 (18*) - 245
      4 (21*) - 225
      5 (25*) - 215
      6 (29*) - 205
      7 (33*) - 195
      8 (37*) - 180
      9 (41*) - 165
      PW (45*) - 150
      50.F.12 - 133
      55.S.11 - 117
      60.M.08 - 105

      Well folks, debated not posting but figured I've gotta start somewhere! It's a bit of a hodge podge, but here's my current load out:
      Driver: TaylorMade R9 SupterTri (Fujikura MotoreF1 65 shaft)
      3W: Callaway X2 Hot (Aldila Tour Green 75 Tx shaft)
      Irons (PW-2): Ping Eye 2
      Wedges (52 & 60): Mack Daddy 2's
      Putter: Ping Cushin
      Being that my wife and I still have college loans breathing down our necks I'm on a bit of a budget. This in mind, I'm wondering if anyone has advice on what would be most worth upgrading next? There's not really a club in here I can't stand, and don't want to go buy something that will only be a marginal difference from what I've got. Hit me with what you think!

      Hey everyone! new member/first post here so bear with me!
      Callaway (unknown model) Grey Goose stand bag (looks awesome, purchased from PlayItAgain)
      Cobra F7 Driver - Stiff 60g Fukijura shaft - Garfield "Born 2 Birdie" Headcover
      Callaway Rouge 3 wood - Adila Synergy Regular shaft
      Cobra F7 5 wood - Regular Fukijura shaft - My old Callaway Diablo 3 wood Headcover
      TaylorMade TP Rescue 4/22* - I'm not sure how old this is, I am in the market for something new
      Cobra F8 Iron set 5-GW - Regular flex TrueTemper XP90 shafts 
      Ping Tour-S 54*/12* bounce wedge - KBS Tour Shaft
      Adams Tom Watson 58*/8* bounce wedge - Adams branded shaft
      Tommy Armour Impact #3 Putter - 35" Black painted shaft
      I think the next things to be replaced are the Rescue, then the wedges, then the driver. I also have the 38" Counterbalanced TA putter I have used twice if anyone is interested! Enjoy the pictures:
