Seriously thinking of switching to a Ping TR style putter. Yet I would like to do it right, and get properly fit. Does anyone know a good place to get fit for ping putters in the Sonoma County region? Sacramento, San Francisco, East Bay, etc? Looking for a place that will do it right. Thanks!!!   Jamie Miller Rohnert Park, Ca
I recently bent my Cleveland 588 RTX CB 58 degree wedge somehow. I would like to just change the shaft. It says Wedge Flex. I have heard that these are S200's. Just looking for more opinions. I have 2 other cleveland wedges of the same type, and I like it when they all feel uniform. Would hate to spend money on a shaft and have it feel differently.    Thanks!!   Jamie Miller
2 rounds and a range session, and not a shank as of yet. 
A friend of my fathers had an old Wilson Arnold Palmer "Autographed" 2 iron. I think it's from the 60's or 70's. I tried it at the range a few nights ago and hit it OK. So I took it out on the course. On shots where I wanted less then driver or 3W, I decided to try it. It's a tiny little head, have no clue about the shaft specs, but it's the easiest club I have ever hit. 225 with a tight draw, and a decent roll out. Why???? I am a 15 HCP, and you would think it would be a...
So I went back to the shop where I ordered my clubs. Talked to a couple other guys there, and they confirmed my suspicions and your thoughts. I did a test with a club that was 1/2" short and 1.5 up, and I was still toe striking, need 3 degree up. So they are going to call Callaway in the morning, and reorder them. So frustrating. I don't like to be mean, but if you don't know your job, don't do it. UGH!! Thanks for the helps guys!!   JRM
So the guy that fit me was wrong. Great.    Thanks Guys
When I was fitted on the lie board, it was with a standard length shaft and I was constantly striking one degree on the toe. They said when you shorten the stick, that it should bring it to standard lie. I thought about it, and asked if that wasn't backwards. He said it's the opposite of what you would think. I guess I will find out when they get here.    JRM
I have a new set of Callaway X2 Hot Irons on order. I was fit by by local shop, yet something in the back of my mind is bothering me. I used to play standard length Callaway Razr X's. I then had different shafts installed that were about 1/2" shorter. My accuracy got much better! Unfortunately, the new shafts were just a bit too heavy for me. So I decided to just get new Ping Irons. Was fitted at standard length, and 1 degree up, blue dot. I hated the Pings. Tried to get...
I spent this afternoon up at Haggin Oaks in Sacramento, CA testing clubs on their range. I fell in love with the new Callaway X Hot2 Irons and hybrids. IMHO, they feel like butter. I was checking the specs, and I know club lofts are getting stronger. Here is my dilemma. The 5 iron is 23 degrees. The 4 iron is 20.5 degrees, and the 3 hybrid that I would get is 19 degrees. It seems like the 4 iron is almost redundant. Or am I missing something here?    Thanks for your...
Well, I decided I would try the least toxic and easiest to find option first. Nail polish remover. It's the good stuff. I soaked it for about 5 minutes, and used the point of a pair of tweezers, and it began to chip. So I put some more on the area and let it soak for about 10 minutes. A lot more came off the second go. After 5 or so applications, some elbow grease, and the use of an old toothbrush, toothpick, and the tweezers, it was clean as a whistle. Hit a few balls...
