Best Golf related purchase in 2020

Recommended Posts

My only addition to the golf bag was a Taylormade Spider putter and my putting has really improved. Not sure if it just a mental thing, but the longer line really helps me to aim better and it feels like I am more confident with putts under the 7 foot range. 

I also discovered a new brand www.luckygolf.co and must say that I was really impressed with their towels and gloves, and I think they are reasonably priced as well.

Next item to buy is a new golf bag so let me know which one you recommend!

I'll throw in my 2 cents on bags/carts. Don't know if you walk or ride, but if you do walk I've read that doctors recommend you use a push cart instead of a stand bag (easier on the back).  In that case, a cart bag will work if you either ride or push.  I just LOVE the TopLok system on the Bag-Boy carts which integrates with that same system on either Datrek or Bag-Boy bags.  Quad XL cart is super easy to fold/unfold; it is also quite compact when folded, (and they make a great storage bag which keeps the trunk clean). Nice integrated beverage holder which is good size (holds my Yeti 20 oz. Tumbler with ease)  The Top-Lok system gets your bag attached and rolling toward the course in under a minute (no straps to mess with), and is very secure - you'd have to upend the whole thing for the bag to detach.  There are quite a few models of bags between the two brands (I have a Datrek) so it will depend on what features are most important to you.

Reminiscing best Golf related purchase in 2020...

#1) Renewed our Golf membership @ the Club. I am pretty 99% certain I myself have the lowest cost per round playing our course. the past 3 years [emoji2958]

#2) Jones carry Bag in Maui less than retail. $90 Perfect old school bag walking the whole course Travel light.

#3) Titlelist stand bag @ the club. Great for walking the front 9 and loading it on the cart for the uphill back 9. The preferred bag for 2+ round days. Used up accumulated credit funds from monthly member tournament winnings + member discount. Out of pocket cost under $60.00 [emoji847] Score!

#4) Golf Pride Tour Velvet 360 grips from EBay auction @ 50% off. Sniped it!

#5) Gently owned Mizuno JPX 900 Tour 3 iron NS Modus3 Tour 105 Stiff also from EBay Auction. Fun to utilize on some days when we tee off the Lavander Par 4’s. Also Sniped it last second! [emoji2139][emoji466]️

#6) and last but not the very least, Thermos Stainless Stell King Travel Tumbler, 2 Pack from Costco. [emoji477]️ In the morning. Sturdy and keeps your beverage warm for hours. Was on sale at the warehouse during the Christmas holidays with rebate.

These items purchased made my early morning rounds more enjoyable and much more fun.

I have jumped around with drivers over the last 10 years. Never buying the latest, maybe last years model.

My distance had dropped from 265-270 to around 235-240. It didn't matter what. 

I bought a used ( like new). Epic Flash SZ driver.

My plans were to re-sell it.

I put a non-pro Tensei white shaft in it, and I'm back at 250?? again.

When it gets warmer & drys up, it should be a little longer.

It seemed my distance was gone for good.

Thanks, it really gave me more confidence.

 This was an accident. My Son said hit it a couple of times.

The shaft was  a Hzrdus Black 6.5 shaft.

We had the Tensei already here, so it was put in and ( magic))!!!!

Last year I bought more than I ever have as well. Best purchase are a tie because the verdict isn’t out on my driver shaft but from early signs it will be the best purchase 

-HZRDUS green shaft and P790 irons. Irons towards the end of the year were really cooperating and knew where I was missing, distance and control are great, something I didn’t have before

I love my Bushnell Wingman Smart speaker......great sound, easy yardages to front back and middle and the built in magnet holds it securely to the cart.

It went over so well in my Mens Golf Association that 3 other guys bought one a week later.

My pushcart from Costco! I get to keep walking, keep a better rhythm, keep losing weight. My back and legs feel so much better after a round. Gotta keep up with the little one.

Got back into golf this year after a 10 year hiatus.  Started back in September and completely redid my whole bag (it was 10 plus years old), including the bag.  Best purchases so far are:

  • Clicgear push cart
  • Custom fit Sub 70 699 Pro irons
  • Custom fit Cleveland Frontline Elevado putter

To help me get back into playing the best thing I purchased was a membership at my local course.

Not played regularly for 15 years so looking forward to getting out more in '21. Just need this pesky virus to let the course open again...

I bought a golf cart for the first time. Love having all my golf stuff on the cart and ready to go. I really love having 2 bags of clubs on the cart. How am I supposed to know before hand what irons are going to work today?

A few months ago I started this thread as a review for 2020.  At that time I made a prediction that the best purchase for 2021 would be the Orange Whip swing trainer and Lightspeed trainer.

Well I was right, sort of.

About 6 weeks ago a representative from Orange Whip reached out to me via email and offered an opportunity to purchase their Power Peel package at a significant discount.  I accepted their offer and bought the Power Peel package and enrolled in the company’s free trial of their GFX training program.   

When the free trial period ended I eagerly paid for an annual subscription to the GFX programs as I was seeing and feeling results very quickly in my strength, flexibility and mobility both on and off the course.

Now the results are even better.  I have gained an average of 17 yards in Driver distance according to my Arccos statistics since I started the program.  I’ve gone from an average Driver smart distance of 235 yards to 252 yards.  My smart Range is now 244-267 yards.

It is early in the year, but I’m calling my best purchase of 2021 right now, the Orange Whip Swing Trainer and the Power Peel Package.

I just ordered their putter and wedge trainers because I have become a believer in their products and am looking forward to getting the rest of their range of products to test.
