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:
Has anyone tested the Bridgestone Tour B RX or RXS balls? I haven't found a topic on them.
I recently found a Tour B RX ball and started chipping and putting with it. It was in perfect condition when I found it and after practicing with it, it was in much better condition than the Pro V1's that I also use for practice. I'm amazed with it's durability but I found the B RX to be a little hot off the face compared to the Pro V1 (softer vs firmer feel?). I played a round with it and compared it to my gamer (Srixon Q-star) and didn't see much difference but I also played like crap that day, so it's difficult to say.
What experience have you guys with it? Is it worth the buy?
This is my first post so here goes!
Driver: Callaway Big Bertha Epic 9* - Graffaloy Blue 75x Shaft 45"
3 Wood: Callaway Big Bertha Epic 13.5* - Project X HZRDS Black Handcrafted 75g 6.5
Hybrid: Titleist 816H2 19* - Aldila Rogue Max 85g x
Irons: Mizuno MP-18 SC 4-6 & Mizuno MP-18 MB 7-PW - Project X 6.5 Shafts - 3up + 1"
Wedges: Titleist Vokey SM7 50*, 54* and 58* - Dynamic Gold X100 shafts +3/4"
Putter: EVNROLL 1.2 Tour 36" - with Stability Shaft
Ball - Taylormade TP5x or Bridgestone Tour B XS
Glove - Footjoy Sci-Flex
Thinking about changing a few clubs out, the Driver, the 3-wood and the hybrid.
Looking at getting either the Ping G410 or the Cobra F9 driver. The Taylormade M5 3-wood and the Taylormade P790 UDI 2 Iron instead of the hybrid.
Here's a video of me hitting the M5 3 wood, it's a beast! Was loving the Project X HZRDS Black Handcrafted 85g 6.5 shaft that it had in it, felt more stable than my 75g one.
A special Limited Edition release by Bridgestone:
As the golf world gears up for the PGA Championship and Tiger tries to make it two-in-a-row at the Majors, Bridgestone is launching a LE special "Tiger Chasing Majors" commemorative package for its TOUR B XS balls this weekend. We expect it to be widely available beginning on Monday, but some Southeast locations will have it on shelves as early as this weekend. Same price as typical TOUR B XS ($44.99 per dozen) - just another opportunity for Tiger fans to grab a cool commemorative pack.
