I was never an investigator of shafts. Well it’s a slippery slope and now I’m enveloped in it 😂 lots out there. Have you been fitted?

Be careful! Don't slip and fall. Ha!

Yes, "a lot out there," that's true. Even fitters can't stock everything, and then, conditions of play vary, a golfer's changing skill set (hopefully ever trending toward improvement) adds to the mix. So, finding that "special something" that works with one set of variables may not work so well with the next. I was fitted, but my game is changing, so I'm having a bit of fun playing with all the stuff.

Just be careful of swing weight when cutting down the driver length. Might need to some lead tape added to the head to keep it similar. Good luck on finding a new shaft.

Well, it's cut, and I blew a grip onto it. It's now at a C-8. I haven't played it yet, but that is definitely light, for sure, given that I built my irons out to D-4s. This Titleist head has a varying, interchangeable weight system with neutral, draw/fade options throughout it, so I may drop a heavier weight into it to balance it. I'll give it a go and feel it out. Thanks!!

That's a great option if you would like not have to stick the head full of lead tape, 2 grams in the head will move the swing weight up 1 point. Good luck.

PSA to all the MA members.... A PGA Tour Superstore will be opening in Natick this winter.  They're having a hiring event this week so maybe not too much longer?

I wish they'd get one down in Seekonk to replace the Golfsmith that closed there years ago.

I was really hoping they would go into where Golfsmith was in Bellingham (maybe 7 minutes from my house) or where the Toys'R'Us was.  But it's still a lot closer than going to Peabody or Braintree.

Pretty excited about this. It gives those of us in wmass another option its a bit of a hike but hopefully will be worth it.

Not sure what the typical footprint is for PGASS but at least the one in Sarasota is much bigger than the GG stores I frequent.

This one looks like its an old Michaels store https://www.natickreport.com/2020/10/natick-swapping-crafts-for-clubs-pga-golf-superstore-replacing-michaels/ wife used to like dropping me off and picking me up at Logan express to go shopping around here...

  1. How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score?
    Many years but got serious about 10 years ago. I don't have a "normal" score.  Play at a 14 most of the time and somehow have a 10 cap.

  2. What do you love about golf?
    Challenge and the process. 

  3. What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies?
    Needed to find other addicts to talk to over the winter. Know of, but don't know them.

  4. Where are you from? What is your home course?
    White mountains of NH. Play North Conway CC.

  5. What are the best and worst things about golf in your region?
    Generally little or no wind and the summers are killer. Cold af and snow on the ground too long. 6 months out of the game stinks.

  6. What do you do for a living?
    In the health department.

  7. How’d you pick your user name?
    One of my buddies says "Right down the muckin fiddle" when you hit center fairway so I stole it.

Welcome! Nice user name. Yes NCCC for the first. Love the course and views and is one of the courses I think we’ll always play as we have our annual trip. The other is owls nest.

will have to try to link up if you’re around when we go back up!

It's been a minute since I have played Owl's nest. Almost thought it was hole #1 at Winnipesaukee at first.

Just let me know when you get up here, I'm at the club at least 4 days a week...

Welcome to the forums. Also from northern NH, not too far from owls nest actually. NCCC is another great course up there.

Been playing for 27 years.....damn I’m getting old(38). I am a +1, I played a little in college but took it more seriously in my late 20s. Still love to play when I can get out....have 2 kids under 6. 
 

Love everything about golf!!! Love the personal growth related to all the challenges and perseverance to get to the next level of the game. Love being in nature with good friends and even by myself. LOVE classic architecture and traveling around the world to play great courses. It such a great global game that builds character!!

I have read reviews here forever and I don’t know why I just signed up. I love unbiased reviews so I’m a big fan of what you guys do. 
 

I live in Narragansett RI and my home course is Fenner Hill  it’s a great track that rewards good second shots and good putting  

I love golf everywhere.....so all is good lots of beautiful courses that are affordable....the area needs more junior golf programs but I hope to donate some time in the future to help setup a foundation for that (longterm goals) also need a few more regional tourney things instead of just state or single course tourneys 

I am a Physical Therapist and own a consulting company in bio tech  

it’s my email!

Welcome! I agree the area needs more par 3 courses. I do like that a lot of courses are adopting and bringing in summer camps for kids.

Never played renner will have to try to get down there sometime, doesn’t sound like it wil benefit me with rewarding 2nd shots and putting 😂

Welcome aboard! There's a number of RI and southern MA members on the board here. I know PGA Jr has a strong presence in the area, my son played for 3 summers before he opted not to play this past summer to concentrate on music & drumming. We'll head down to Windmill Hill in Warren or Swansea Country Club right down the road to play the par 3s there.
