Vacation in Mass

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I finally finalized my vacation for this year and it will be for 36 days this sept-oct in mass.

Obviously I want to take advantage of this trip in two ways. The first is making sure my wife and kids have a great time.. The second which is important to me and that is what am I going to do about my golfing.

I would love to have some sort of agenda in mind before that time, and obviously since it is 3 months away then I have plenty of time to plan,, money should not be an issue for the most part either so here I go with what I'm thinking and I am sure that a lot of you can help with this!

In no particular order.

Get an edel putter fitting.. I think there is a place in mass, but more importantly will be the timing.. Since I only have about a month I need to make sure I get fitted in time to have them deliver the club to me before I travel back.. Maybe I will discuss with them before I arrive to make sure I schedule things correctly!

Fitted for a new set of irons, I think I am ready to move on to a new set to take full advantage of the technologies available! I know there area y threads talking about this, but maybe I should get help in picking out a set by the pro I work with, which brings me to the next point!

Work with a 5sk coach! I would love to go down to PA if I am welcome there and work with Erik or Dave as I think this would really help bring everything together for me.. Maybe if there are things to do with the family down there I can somehow convince the wife to take this trip and then I can do my stuff and then enjoy te rest of the time with the family!

I don't need another driver although I would love to find out if I should really be using the stiff shaft or not..

I am wondering if I should also get fitted for my wedges to get the correct bounce and the optimal degree separations between them, maybe edel as well? I'll have to look up wedges and learn every thing I need to know.

Obviously with all of that I have to make sure I try and get as many rounds of golf and range time as I can, this will be the easiest part because most likely no one will be up at 6 am while I go to the range or play 9 holes till 8 or so..

If I think of anything else I'll jot it down, but I think I'll start with the list above and see where it takes me! I can't wait, 1 month off to try an have as much fun as I can!

As long as I make sure I take them out and have them feel like real tourists then I should be ok,, plus a few visits to the malls and shoe stores and I think I can get away with most of the stuff I mentioned if it ends up getting on the agenda!

If you do your putter fitting in the first week or so, you should be okay.

Thanks Erik.. I went ahead and emailed one of their master fitters and he told me that he will be available in Mass during the time I will be there.

 

He mentioned it will take 2 weeks to manufacture and ship, so that is re-assuring for sure!  Can't wait!

I had a great time in Mass for the past 5 weeks.. I was able to get fitted for my wedges & putter.. I also bought a new set of irons and even took an aimpoint class!

 

I played a few rounds with family and friends and I practiced a little, but most of all the kids had a great time with all the good weather we have had.

 

I guess I can only hope that next year there is a reputable 5sk instructor that is near the area I am going to be in.. 

 

Until then, for the second year in a row I will be traveling back while it is raining in boston!  Time to finish packing my golf stuff!

Tell me who some good possibilities are and we can reach out to them. :)

 

Isn't Eric Cogorno nearby?

I know this guy in Erie.  Now if he only moved to Boston......  I have yet to see or hear of anyone good around here.
