I'm back in the saddle.

7 posts in this topic

I just got a brand new set of glubs over the past week. I am also new to this forum so this is my way of saying hello to everyone. I have been playing for about 10 years and unfortunately last year my family and I ran into hard times and I had to sell my clubs and hang my golf shoes up for a while. Now that things are back to normal ( i think), my wife let me go and start the process of building a new set. So far I got a great deal on a set of Taylormade burner 2.0 hp irons that hit great. Taylormade white smoke putter, Taylormade Superfast 2.0 9.5 degree driver, and Taylormade superfast 2.0 3 wood. I am currently testing wedges right now. My iron set only goes down to AW 50 degrees. I can only afford one wedge right now and I am leaning towards the Vokeys. I just have no idea on what degree wedge should be my next club. I am leaning towards a 56, or a 58. Good to be hear everyone hope to make a few friends here.

Well my set is now complete. Just spent about 2 hours at the golf shop and tried out tons of wedges while a club fitter monitored me on the launch monitor. He was actually very surprised that the wedges I hit the most consistent and the farthest was the wedges from the Adams Tom Watson set. The club fitter told me there was no reason to buy more expensive vokeys since I hit these the best. I saved alot of money today by not going by impulse and buying three Vokeys. Instead i took the smarter sensible route and came out very happy.

My uncle plays the Tom Watson classic wedges and loves them. I think he got them in a set of 3? Welcome to the site.

    • 2016 Waste Management Phoenix Open Discussion
      Actually, they mentioned today that it's an environmental requirement imposed by the government; local, state or federal, they weren't sure.
    • Steel vs Graphite generic question
      Spin is OK though? I could be flipping a little but I may need work on Key #3 to get that launch down to where it needs to be... Because I SHOULD be carrying my 7-iron 160-165 with that speed.  Maybe the motor is fine (the shaft), just need to work on in-line impact more...
    • Finding Value in The Used Club Market
      I'm liking this:   That makes a lot of sense.  Local Retailers may be getting some of the last years models dumped on them when the new clubs start cycling through.  I was thinking about doing the demo days thing to get a taste of what is out there.  The R7 limited and R11 Taylormade Drivers were good to me.  I think a X2 hot/Big Bertha/etc/ect would probably be more forgiving.  Still, I look at the clubs of old... the Cleveland Launcher Comp / Callaway Hawkeye and think: "If I can buy that club for $20... and I can buy newer (used) for $50-$100... hmmm.  Spinning the wheels.  Thanks for the advice though I really appreciate it. If anyone has a Driver / had a Driver they loved from (2009-2014) let me know about it!  What did you like/didn't like?
    • My ex-home courses closing, changing - proofs that golf is in decline
      I just found out that my ex-home course, Sunol Valley Golf course, went out of business last month.  I played 2 - 3 times a week for 2 years not too long ago.  The course was done in by shrinking golfers, and 500% increase in water cost in the last 4 years of CA drought.  They could not make money.   Another ex-home course is now doing business as a golf and foot golf (soccer golf) course.  Golfing customers were not enough. Another course nearby (Santa Clara Tennis and Golf Club) is going to turn into a parking lot for a recently built football stadium. It is sad that despite improved economy in Bay Area, CA, golf business is in decline.  They have been in decline since 1990s but most of the courses around here survived 2008-9 recession.  The current drought and the resulting water cost going through the roof appears to be the final nail in the coffin for the weaker courses.   Sad.
    • Injury Question
      I didn't play golf for about 11 weeks due to it being difficult to play with work after day light savings time fell back.  Now, from the sounds of it, I played through the majority of the repair time as I walked 9 holes 4-5 times a week with 1 day of walking 18 for 7-9 weeks after the injury....I know, I'm an idiot. As it stands now I don't really notice it 90% of the time, its just something that pops up on a swing every now and then.  From the sounds of your healing time, I may have caused it to heal improperly leaving me with a hitch....  If I really just need to not do anything and it'll heal over time then I'd gladly do it, kicking and screaming the entire way as I already had a plan in place to push my handicap into the single digits by years end. I don't like the sound of having something happen as "I get older," I'm only 26 damn it .
