What did you buy on your last trip to the golf store? - Page 144

post #2575 of 2648

I actually have to get back out to the store pretty soon to get some new stuff. I put away a few boxes of balls and some tees from last year to use this year, and i have already blown through them. Thinking it may be time for some new woods as well, anyone have an opinion on some good ones?

I actually do not carry any woods. Due to my distances, I found it more convenient and more logical to carry 5 wedges and a Driver and 19° hybrid. If you are interested in a hybrid, rather than a wood, I would personally recommend checking out at a Titleist 910 hybrid. I may be a fanboy, but after hitting a buddy's Titleist driver and hybrid I became obsessed and replaced nearly everything in my bag. You can pick up a used Titleist 910 hybrid or fairway wood for around $50.00 now I think. Just keep an eye out at GlobalGolf.com, they typically have great deals on used clubs.

@jakepalm, It was too late to edit my previous post, but apparently Callaway Golf Pre-Owned is having a 2-day sale where they are providing a BOGO deal on both hybrids and woods. That could be something to check out as well.

Nice! Yeah see I probably wouldn't have found that deal if you hadn't mentioned it, @Spyder so I appreciate that. I have considered just going for a hybrid instead so yeah I might just look into those.

No idea I assume you could out in a couple tees?

I might just have to go for some grips next time I'm out too. If not I will order some off of Golf Galaxy. When it comes to grips, I tend to prefer Golf Pride.

Last trip to Golfsmith I bought a Garmin Approach S-3. Luv it !!  :-D

Went with some used clubs. A7 22* hybrid and R9 5 wood.

I'm thinking of looking into those new Speed Regime balls by Callaway. The idea of the different customized balls according to the swing speed has been done many times before, but I think Callaway did it right with the SR Series. They run up a big price though, the SR 1 (for slower swing speeds) are at Sports Authority for $48.

Yea that's STEEP for a dozen balls.  Have you looked into the Taylormade Project (a).  If not, read up on them.

 

I bought a dozen.  First time out with them I got an ace.  Great ball.  It's long off the tee and behaves really well on approaches.  I've even skulled 6 irons into greens and they checked up!!  My old ball would been loooooong gone after hitting the dance floor.  This one stopped at the back side fringe :)

post #2585 of 2648

Yeah I used to go to Taylormade for most of my balls and clubs. Callaway had sort of taken over when I saw how well my dad was playing when he got new (Callaway) clubs. I do like Taylormade so I will definitely check them out.

Went to Dick's and got a free 2 ball sleeve of Callaway SR2 balls.

A Callaway Launch Pad hitting mat for the backyard and a package of wedge tees (virtually unbreakable).

I'm going to review the Launch Pad next month once I've had a chance to beat the shit out of it a little bit. I won't review the tees because, well, they're tees...unbreakable ones so...that's pretty much the review right there. b2_tongue.gif

That doesn't even sound like much but I would be all over deals like that.

When they are $48/dozen a free two ball sleeve is something ....$8 at least.
post #2590 of 2648
That's what I'm saying. The more free stuff the better. In the end I know those balls will end up 10 yards into the woods or deep in a pond.
