Both of you are right!
Yea, I saw that you had high school golf as an occupation, looks like we're the young guns on the website. I'm 17 and I pay for about 20% of the equipment, usually replacement wedges and balls. I got the new irons for a Christmas present, the woods for my birthday, and bought the wedge and putter myself. Can't complain with anything except the driver shaft though. Bag's looking awfully PING-ish. If I try a PING wedge better than a Vokey Spin-milled, I might have to get...
Ok, so I have been probably a 112-114 swing speed guy for about 2-3 years, being a teenager, but I bought a Rapture driver looking for a nice, cheap upgrade, knowing that I would eventually put a nicer shaft in. I have looked around, but finding the right fit for my needs within a budget (at my age) is tough, and the distance that I have lost from this switch is demoralizing. The shaft is the stock TFC stiff that came with the driver. Here are my issues, I hope that...
A few of my friends and I went to the Bridgestone Invitational two years ago like we do every year, but we got to go an extra day on Wednesday for free. We caught Philly Mick finishing up his practice round and we got our picture taken with him. He's really a classy guy, but it's hard for them to be open during a tournament like that.
NO! Don't hit it! Questions about it. 1. Is this the shaft you bought the club with? 2. Who is the maker of the club? 3. Have you called them yet? This happened to me with a Callaway X Hot 3w and I had it replaced in less than a week, so don't fret.
Interesting, because I am having this issue at the moment as well. I switched from my old Cobra irons to MP-52s, going from 170 with a 7 iron to a 155. Unfortunately, I have not been to GolfTec to frequency test the shafts, but even with my handicap and consistently shooting around 72 or 73 at my home course, something just isn't right.
Got in a quick nine before dinner. Started par-birdie-birdie and ruined the round with a double on the seventh. Shot a 36. I drove the ball like a champion, but the greens were airated, so putting was really inconsistent. I had 15 putts, so not a bad round overall.
No, no no! He has not gone back to his old ways. He is recovering an ankle injury, and that aside from an arm or back injury can be brutal. It's a shame to see him playing poorly, driving and putting are struggles right now and he never seems to struggle with the driver. He's young and really hasn't dealt with the struggling game and getting back from it thing. I agree he should be taking it more seriously, but the "old ways" were more serious than horseback riding (?)...
It has been really distracting and I rolled my eyes a couple of times, but I am just trying to watch the golf. I love to hear him talk, but you are right, we don't need to beat a dead horse on the histrionics.
Shot 75 today with some brutal wind. It was the first round outside this year and I felt good enough to shoot under par. I started birdie, but my driver was off all day. The callaway has been ok, but I am looking to invest in some new woods. The Mizunos I have labeled for irons just came in today, so hopefully I can play a round with them tomorrow! :)
