I remember saying you were fond of the ptx head so it’s nice to see it found a home. Also a huge atta boy to Ben Hogan for making that happen. 
 

Play well, maybe we should reignite that testing thread a little for old times sake. 

Yes, that thread got pretty big actually, didn’t it?

such a high quality set of clubs, they’re destined for cult status, like the old TM- M2 driver. 
 

I actually had a minor discussion with one of the “big shots” about the combo set. I really felt they should offer the ability for the player to choose his preferred make up of the set. Like I personally would have liked the Icons to go down to the 6 iron, and then have the 4 and 5 irons be the PtxPro’s.

but apparently he felt differently as that’s still not an option...

After six years of playing, I got my first hole in one yesterday! Pretty crazy feeling to see the ball drop from the tee box. It was a slight downhill par 3 from 150 yards, got it done with a 9 iron!

... I'll try and beat that. We were called the Whirlies with a tornado like smiley face thing. We hated it and my senior year we got a new head coach that made us scream "Be Rough, Be Tough, Be A Whirlie!" Talk about humiliating. Thankfully He wanted to start a sophomore at QB and actually told us the next 2 years would be "throw away years" til his offense became established. So seniors waiting for their chance were SOL. What a moron. He wanted me to play safety and I already had offers at QB, the only position I had played since the 2nd grade. I transferred to a county school and became a Hornet LOL. 

"Tornados" possibly cool.. "Whirlies".. not so much 🤦‍♂️. At least a "Whirlie" is kind of a non-tangible substance. With the over abundance and availability of rabbits in the area, I'm sure you can imagine the ridiculous extent that HS students are willing to go, to show that they have the upper hand in a rivalry.. It got pretty bad.

I got to play the my first of three round robin singles match play at the club I am apart of. Always fun to play in a little competition and have some pressure moments. I was missing/pulling my approach shots left of the green. I had to scramble like a mad man to keep the match close. I ended up with 5 up and downs. I had to birdie 18 to push the match and get a 1/2 pt. for myself. Ended with an 85/86ish, picked up on 1 hole as he had already won that one.

Cool part was talking about MGS with my playing partner. He had heard about it and even put in on a couple testing opportunities. He didn't realize how big the forum community group and all the different topics that you can learn about, take part in, and meet others through the process.

I'd imagine if they could scale it, that would be a fantastic option.  I am still surprised at how easy the Icon heads are to hit.  After playing the Ft. Worth's I had some trepidation but they engineered an incredibly forgiving head.  Who knows, the future is bright for them.

... I can see some WR's, RB's and even QB's thinking Jackrabbits ain't all that bad as they are almost impossible to catch. But can't imagine lineman or any defensive players wanting anything to do with that name.

Nice weather bad play 😱

Difficult 9 holes made harder by me.  Driver & long irons were OK, short irons & putter still disturbing.

Time to take a look at the basics, grip, stance, posture and putter setup.

Beautiful sunny 86º day, but my wife isn't used to the heat yet this year.  She started feeling it on hole #16.  Supposed to be 93 this weekend, so she will need extra cooling.  She's had heatstroke before.

It is my birthday today and she treated me to a round of golf at our sister course across the Columbia River in Pasco.  We were paired with a twosome; one was a pretty good player and the other one has been playing for several years and I don't think he broke 150.  Seriously!!  Nice guys though!  

I played from the White tees which plays a little over 6300 yards (Par 72); about 300 yards longer than our equivalent tees.  Course was in nice shape; greens were smooth but a little slower than our greens.  As a result, I left a lot of chips and putts just a little short.  Shot 39/40 for a 79; one birdie (about a 40 foot putt); I wasn't leaving it short like I did on the first 3 holes.  The bad news is that I had two bad holes and took doubles (no penalties, just poor shots); one on #9 and the other on #17.  Other than those two holes, not a bad round on a course I haven't played in a couple of years.  First day this year playing my "summer" ball... ProV1x. Time for the soft winter ball to wait until fall.

Happy Birthday Kenny!

Happy birthday Kenny!!!

 

I played today and had 2 birdies, missed a least 3 more with putts just sliding by the hole.  The last birdie was less than 3" from being my 8th eagle from over 100 yards out.

Now I have the equalizer wedges and my friend who just got a set of the ptx combo’s also just got a set of the new equalizer II’s, and he just won’t shut up about them... makes me wonder...

Played in potentially awful conditions that ended up being ok. 9 over playing off 8. First round after a lesson so I was pretty happy with the result. Made 3 sand saves, one of which was my shot of the day. Plugged ball in the face, about a foot below the lip, on the short side, blasted out to 5 feet and made the putt.
Ball striking was mixed, putted well after the first couple of holes.

Got out for a quick twilight round last night, been working at home not getting the club so far behind me....extending my trail arm to keep from getting the club stuck behind me.

ball striking seemed to be a lot better today and the extra work on my short game is paying off.
