Eisenhower (White)

Posted

Pros: Long and challenging

Cons: Grass length, WAIT TIME

Ok, so let me say that for $30, this is a great place to play.  I went to play the Blue course, which is the easiest of the 3 courses at Eisenhower park, but had to play the White when they said that the back 9 of the blue is closed on Thursdays for maintenance.  Ok, fine, I played White years ago and enjoyed it.   I got very lucky that a threesome missed their tee time because my father and I would have had a 3 hour wait to play if we didn't get there at EXACTLY the right time.  If you want to play, definitely reserve a tee time.   In terms of the actual course, it is relatively hilly and long.  All of the greens are challenging on approach as they...

CG 14

Posted

Pros: Nice look, good feel, very responsive

Cons: none

Had this club up until recently (May 2012).  It was a great club and I really liked it in my bag.  I had the 50* version.  The zip grooves definitely made it easier to get my shots to stop on a dime when I needed them to.   Only reason I gave up the club was because I bought a set of Taylormade Burner 2.0's which had a 50* wedge in it.  I tried it out and loved that club more since it matched the set, and I could see no real difference in how it played vs the CG 14 (newer club vs older club really).  I gave the CG14 to my father and now he loves it as well.  Great club overall and the black head just has a great look to it.

Burner 2.0

Posted

Pros: Forgiving

Cons: none

Bought these after having the same cheap no-name irons for over 10 years.  Went into Golf Galaxy to try them out along with some other sets.  This set, hands down, was the most amazing set I tried.  I even tried the Ping i20 and Taylormade RBZ as a comparison and these were hands down the most comfortable (and affordable).   Hitting these gave the feeling of a hot knife through butter.  Great feel and I love the look.

Burner Superfast

Posted

Pros: Good feel, lets you slow down swing for accuracy w/o giving up distance

Cons: Length takes some time getting used to

I had to get a new driver when mine broke.  I saw this was on sale at Golf Galaxy, and went in for a fitting so I could see if this was the right club for me, or if one of the other drivers on sale would be better.   Turned out this club fit me great.  The only problem I had was that its a bit long, but I took the time to go to the range and work out the kinks and now I hit it fine.   What I think is really great is that the aerodynamics and the length make it feel like there is added speed to your swing.  This actually allowed me to slow down my swing so that I could hit the ball more accurately.  Even with a slower swing (going from 115mph to...
