I have a combo set of Wishon irons. Like Mizuno, of which I also own a set, the Wishon irons undergo a five step forging process and are very soft. There is very little, if any, difference between the Wishons and the Mizuno. When you factor in price, you actually get more bang for your buck. I was able to purchase the Wishons, 5-PW, brand new with customized shafts, spined and flo'd for consistency, (think SST Pure process) and some Iomic grips for $400 less than a...
It depends on the day of the week at Pelham. It is an easier course than Split Rock so it gets more play. The problem is finding starters and marshalls that actually pay attention to the pace of play. These guys much rather chill at the new clubhouse and restaurant than actually make people play golf. FWIW, I usually play Split Rock on Fridays. The last time I played we were finished in 4 hours. To the OP, it sounds like a good business plan. Your friend has...
If we're keeping score And plating by the rules of golf then you're not getting yardage and I'm not telling you what club I used. (unless we're teammates) if it's a casual round and no score is being kept then I'll give you all the information you need. If your friends get pissed when money is on the line and you're not helping them then you should do two things: 1) find new golf friends or b) five them the wrong yardage.
I like Fowler's answer even better. "if I could go back and change anything it would be to hit the wedge shot that we wanted." Good to see a young guy have some conviction and not fall to unfair criticism. Also nice to have a round table of sorts without being subjected to the usual suspects or conversation centered around the one and only.
For those of you in NYC, there will be a huge golf day at Chelsea Piers. All the OEMs will be there. My first choice will be Adams as I want to try the new CB1 irons. I also want to try the new CG1 Tours from Cleveland. I'm not dismissive of any golf company. All that matters is that it looks and feels good.
I'm on day 9. You need to figure out what you want to achieve. There are three types; classic, size and leaner. Then follow the outline set up for each one including the meal plan. They will recommend which foods and supplements to eat. Use two sets of dumbells. One heavy and one light. You definitely need the chinup bar. They're $30 on eBay. If anyone wants a excel spreadsheet to chart their progression, send me a PM. Will be glad to forward it.
Jay, I use both blades and CBs in the long irons. (forget my signature as it's always changing). The only difference I have noticed is forgiveness. The CBs I have are almost identical in certain aspects: sole size, offset and topline. With the profiles being similar, I can pretty much do everything with the CBs that I do with the blades and visa versa. Also, the lofts are identical as both Mizuno and Wishon believe in traditional lofts. IMHO, I believe that you...
Yes, they are from Chop Shop Golf and the person's name is Eric Vatral. It took two weeks, door to door, for the work to be done. He refinished my set from the 5I to PW. I did not ask him to paintfill the clubs because I really liked the all black look. Instead, I just asked him to do some stampings. At the time, I paid almost $200 for the work and the clubs look brand new. I can send you some pics or you can google "xtraspin" and "ebay" for what the irons look...
I'll second the notion of a combo set. Are you looking for a club that is smaller in profile? Thinner topline? Less offset? If so, you don't necessarily have to hit a blade. There are plenty of cavity back models that have the same profile as a blade but have more forgiviness. If you're not averse to using a component company, you can probably build yourself a set for the fraction of the cost of an OEM. Companies like Geotech, Snake Eyes, Wishon make what is known...
I have hit so many shafts but thanks to a professional fitting I have some things that I would like to share: 1) Get your shaft set to the right CPM. Moreso than flex, various companies label flexes different but CPM is always constant. Whenever I buy a new shaft, I try to get it at a CPM that is anywhere from 258 to 262. (Talking about drivers) 2) Figure out if you're a swinger or hitter. Swingers tend to have a better transition and smoother tempo and can go...
