How'd you play?

Maiden voyage for my new Honma irons.  38/40:78     2 bogies and 2 doubles.  
Only hit 6 fairways but the misses were mostly just in the rough.  Couple of bad tee shots with one ending up with a penalty stroke.  
Irons were fabulous;  hit 12 greens,  1 was just off, and  1 was about 7 feet off.   Need to add the 11 (gap) iron to the set.   Shafts might be a little light but the clubs performed very well.   My original thought was that these clubs were going to be about a club shorter than my Srixon's.  In reality,  I was getting about the same distance.  The only green I missed on the front was one that I hit long.  

The Honma’s are a really nice put together iron.
I’m not sure if I ever posted about this but a friend of mine is playing Honma irons. He became career military intelligence after Vietnam (drafted) and was stationed in South Korea for years and met his wonderful wife there and she cane back to the States w him when he was stationed at the Pentagon. A couple years ago his sister in law and wife got his iron specs and purchased a set of Honma irons for him. They are great looking irons and he’s killin them. His iron played greatly improved, plus his bag looks great!!
He retired as Full Bird Colonel[emoji106]

Foz just noticed the Driver, F8 12’(set @ 11.5d) with Tensi Blue 55 gr shaft and so far I’m liken’ it. Outside of LH same as yours.
You still happy w it?

Yes I am.....after I switched it to 12*, I started hitting it farther with decent loft. I also changed the 3W to 16* and the 5W to 20*. I am now getting more loft and more straight distance. All 3 F8’s are in the bag, two years after I got them.

They are beautiful and feel great. It is nice that people on here recognize the brand. Guys I played with had never heard of Honma and I think they believe they aren’t the quality of the mainstream well known OEMs.

Kind of like a conversation I had earlier this year with someone on my company golf team and i have seen someone else post on here. I hit a good shot with my driver and get asked what kind of club it is which I say ping G400 max. He then asks what kind of shaft am I playing to which I say it is the KBS wood shaft and he responds with I mean what flex.

Always fun seeing the response Of non equipment people.

Walking 9 round with the old(er) guys today.  Went to the course; it was 61º sunny with no wind.  Five minutes before tee time, clouds rolled in and the wind started blowing about 15-20 mph... figures!  🙄

Well, the Men's Club tournament was over yesterday, and the club removed the putting pins on the practice green; not sure why.  They also spread a thin layer of sand on all the greens this morning after rolling them last Friday.  As a result the green speed was a little slower than on the weekend; not much but a little slower.

I had one birdie and one bogey for another EVEN PAR round of 37.  Drives were OK; not great. but given the wind I was happy that I didn't have any bad tee shots.  I wish I had time to play the back nine.

Fairways:  5/7
GIR:   4/9
Putts:   13   The putter was working very well; made 3 putts over 8 feet, one for birdie on #6.

On the par 4 #3 hole with wind from the right and water left, I started the ball down the right side and it ended up in the middle of the fairway.  I had an 8i into the green over water with the pin front just over a pot bunker and bunker to the right and behind.  I started the ball on the right side of the green and thought the wind had to move the ball a little left... Nope!  Dead straight!  Hit the edge of the green and kicked into the right bunker.  60º sand shot to 2 feet for a sandy par.
