58 degree wedge. 

I had been playing a much wider-soled Maltby 60 degree wedge, thinking that the wider sole would be more useful out of rough. Not the case at all. The versatile grind on the wedge is great for hitting little high flops and I've been way more successful out of the sand with it as well. Helps that I also have these wedges 3 degrees flat, so they are better for my swing.

Nice! And yes, 3° up or down can be of significant improvement ... happy to hear that!

My irons are 2° up, but my SM7 54°/58° wedges are standard. And I know the feeling of wedge improvement for my old wedges were 2° up, when they shouldn’t have been. I rarely take full swings with them, and I generally open up the club face as well. 

And if I remember, Cody ... you had an extremely detailed fitting session as well.

Tour length Speedzone 10.5 Driver. It sounds and feel excellent.

Of course I’ve also hit the most balls with that to this point. 5-wood is close second.

Is Tour length shorter or longer than standard? You may have stated in a previous comment, but likely missed it.

Missed this with everyone beating down @GB13.

Minimum two, hopefully three rounds of 18 throughout the challenge. COVID has actually freed up my schedule a little bit, which is good, but the downside is that my course is also much busier than normal, so I can't just show up and walk on anytime of the day anymore.

I do have some vacation hours to burn, so I'm hoping to supplement a few rounds here or there on days I wouldn't normally play.

Easy to get lost in the dumpster fire that is @GB13 right now image.jpeg.ffd37a0aecccc54832711174c3c6a9b0.jpeg

Plenty of rounds nice. It just came to mind because I had a lull the past 2 weeks due to work and just was curious how you folks would fare. 

I mean a silver lining with this whole COVID I think is just that, people are just getting out and doing things. The States are so "go, go, go" we dont sit and enjoy things. I am glad to see you and several others are able to enjoy the extra golf this year (me being one of them as well)

Omg, YES! I’m an early morning 6:30 golfer and even the weekday tee sheets are getting booked up here at that hour. 

If it’s after 7am, and you’re a solo, forget finishing 18 in 2 1/2 hours. Just too many groups to have to try to play through. Additionally, my home course is getting hammered on their gas bill for so many golfers are requesting a single cart.

It’s one inch shorter than standard. 44.5 total length. It also usually comes with extra head weight. So mine has a 6 and 18 gram weight. I think Cody ordered his light. But I wouldn’t be surprised if it was still heavier than stock.

We used to keep a 2x4 by the door just for that, there were years were snakes were a big problem, because of people clearing out lots for houses and them running out of their natural habitat and food sources.

OK competitors, here's a curveball right out of the gate. We all know that not every set is 100% perfect when we first get it, since there's usually a slight adjustment period. So as of right now (and yes it's still early), what about your set didn't jump out right away to you? Or maybe what isn't fitting your eye... yet? Could be looks, could be comfort, could be performance... ? Did you opt for something in your setup that maybe you're slightly second guessing?

Yes it absolutely may be something that changes as you get more comfortable, and we all expect that. But as of right now, what would you point to as something you're not 100% happy about? Don't worry - we won't hold your answers against you 😉
