Actually I meant AP2's......
Good point, the 755 had the Tri Spec and Mizuno's have S300.  As I recall the Tri Spec was suppose to be high launching with some mid bend, maybe that with the lower loft is the culprit.  Almost feels like I'm hitting  1 or 2 iron.  Even a flush hit just doesnt launch high enough.   Probably just need more time to get used to it, maybe trying too hard for the first trip to the range.  The good news is the 6-pw feel real good, just a bit more workability, and oddly enough...
I just replaced my +1/2" Titleist 755 with mid size grips, with Mizuno MP-53 standard length / grip.  Only my third set since 1996 (DCI 962, 755, now MP-53). Curiously just hit them all OK, takes some breaking in but I did have some observations. Much lower ball flight 3-5i and more right to left. 6-pw seemed fine and worked better left to right. Probably will still add 1/2" and get mid grips. Thoughts from anyone on iron changes? Especially the lower flight 3 iron, that...
I'm working on it, still some issues with the driver. Probably more swing related than wind, but its in my head and I can rely on the 3w. I really want to get back to the driver more, but this wind has me focusing on target golf. If a 3w gets me within 150 I'm doing it. For some reason when I tee the driver low, I tend to get more draw than I want. Still working on it.
Moved to Corpus Christi, TX (Windsurfing Capital of the World) in 2007. My handicap went from 8.6 up to over a 12 in the first 18 months. I came from Baton Rouge, LA where the courses are typically soft and no wind, now in Corpus they are typically firmer with lots of wind (~15-40 mph). The worst issue for me was my driver and not being able to play the wind. Just now I'm beginning to flirt with the 70's after 2 yrs of issues. I've learned to hit stinger 3w's of the...
Actually, my Hogan CFT's the 1H is 17*, 2H is 19* and the 3H is 21*. The 2H is a nice fit between 3i & 3w. In my case I have thought about the 1H vs the 3w, as I would expect them to be similar in distance. But in that case I think the 3w is more versatile (a bit longer and easier to work off the tee). I'll keep evaluating a 3w vs 1H, but doubt that I'll ever pull the 3w out of the bag. Travis

I use a Hogan CFT 19 deg 2-Hybrid, and no 5w. I absolutely kill it of the tee and its my go-to club if I need it straight ~240. Off the deck its much shorter, its my 215-225 yd club. I love it in my bag, especially since my driver has been horrible this year, at least this club can get me in the FW. Will never go back to a 5w, just not versatile enough for me. Travis
Just ended an annual tournament amongst friends. Its a only eight guys, and we play 4 rounds (4 diff courses) in two days. I actually played a practice round the day before, so for me 5 rounds in three days. 87, 96, 88, 82, 91. All were par 72 and ~6600-7000 yards. Three of the four I had never played before and I never really got it going. I felt like every round I left 5-6 on the course. The best round of 82 I only hit 3 GIR & 3 FW, up and downs were about 50%.
I've tried Greenfinder, but it seemed slow to me on my BB Curve. I have to admit I like the Golflogix, but would agree it does need some work. Notably the stat/score tracking concept is nice, but very slow and has locked up on me twice. At this point, I think its best to just use as a GPS only and no stat tracking. I've also found that the yardarge updated quicker than Greenfinder and was pretty accurate. At $40/yr, I'll take my chances for now. Certainly better...
