Let's cut him some slack.  I remember how it was when my kids were born.

First thank you to @Popeye64 for hooking me up with a maltby 7i and a brand new wedge. please help me tag people who want to follow this that I am missing @Chip Strokes @dlow206 @Hotdocta @Popeye

Okay it’s warming up and my house looks like a golf tornado ran through it, but got the nursery built and the Maltby ts1 is drying so progress is being made... need something fun after everything that

Okay here is the final line up for the 7i. All clubs will be bent to 32 degrees of loft and 61 degree lie angle. Nippon Modus 120TX playing 37.25" with a Lamkin ST+2 Calibrate grip. Maltby Ts1 7i

I've pretty much given up on him. I actually forgot he still had the heads.

So first off y’all have zero idea what I have been through. 
 

the ice storm in Fort Worth hit my area the hardest. I live 6 miles from where the 150 car accident was and the water treatment plant main line burst and trapped me and my 31 week pregnant wife for 5 days with out power water gas and I went days with out food so my wife and unborn child could eat. Had to build a fire in my house so my wife could stay warm... there tons more that’s happened, but the maltby challenge is the least of my concern... from 2/11 my last post, it’s been a non stop bursting of pipes weekly visits to the doctor for my wife and o yah we had a hail storm 4 days later after the ice storm that shattered the windows of my home and cars... I’m leading 2 companies working round the clock and I can’t even get a little rest let alone test a “Maltby”.... the only golf things I have done are raise money for charity to cover cancer bills for families and the rest of the time is spent keeping my wife safe and picking up the pieces that’s going to take months to make right... on top of all that out crazy governor decided to just let people not wear mask anymore and covid numbers have never been higher... when I go dark from posting there is usually a good reason and people who have sent me messages I have responded to.... I am still waiting on a replacement birdieball putt up from my testing since mine was defective and that was 9 months ago.... 

also if I say I am going to do something I am going to do it and do it right I will but I am on my schedule nobody else’s...  if you can’t wait for a post DM with your cell and I am happy to give you a call

You take your time and take care of your family. None of this is any where near the importance of your family. You are doing the right thing. Also with my wife is 23 weeks pregnant and I can't imagine going through all of that.

We will be praying for you and hope everything settles down.

After the pipes sounds like the hail storm made things worse. At least there’s one positive the broken windows happened after the deep freeze or y’all would have been in some real trouble.

Okay it’s warming up and my house looks like a golf tornado ran through it, but got the nursery built and the Maltby ts1 is drying so progress is being made... need something fun after everything that’s happened! 

Glad to hear things are trying to get back to normal!

Okay we are having to shift this a little... as some of you know I am making the change from the modus 120TX to X7 and eventually working in the Accra iCWT2.0 as I transition to graphite in a 14 clubs. That being said based on availability of shafts and heads only 2 other heads will be going up against the ts1 forged and they will be the srixon zx7 and honma tr20v and they will all be shafted still with the modus 120TX... wedges will follow because hopefully they will have shipped by that point... I have rented a trackman for this upcoming week to go compare the 7i’s

This should be a very cool test!  Glad to hear things are getting somewhat back to normal... that was quite a saga you and your family just went through 😬.

Wasn’t expecting that many clubs to be in the test but that should make this fun to see how it performs

I have been a Golfworks guy since the early 80’s. How many places could one order a raw persimmon turning? Select your own insert and spend hours finding out you have absolutely no ability to do fine detail work. Lol
