Nice Course

Posted

Pros: Nice scenery and a beatiful setting. You can challenge yourself to a 7100 yard course or a 5700 yard one. There is a tee box for everyone.

Cons: Very Busy, maybe too busy at times. They sometimes use parts of the course as a parking lot for large UCLA/USC events.

Brookside is a public course that contains has two competitive tracks. Koiner is a long and challenging track where lots of tournaments are held. E O Nay is a shorter but narrower track for those who want to challenge their short games with lots of elevated greens.   The scenery is beautiful and restful. It is a great place to go and have a nice challenging round in a relaxing setting in a little valley called the Arroyo.   The courses are laid out nicely, so that golfers don't interfere with each. Each hole has a challenge that makes it fun and interesting. Many local high schools hold their competitions at these tracks. The large team of groundskeepers keep the place...

Very solid club.

Posted

Pros: Easy to hit for mid to high handicaps

Cons: Not confirmed, but I watched two video reviews from pros that lost 10 yards out of 260 carry versus the Bio cell plus

The feel is nice and heavy compared to many other clubs I recently tested. It is designed for the mid to high handicap in mind, and I think it lives up to the reputation. Overall, the club feels nice and solid in my hands. I tested both the 5.5 and the 6.0 shafts at a couple loft angles. The club feels very nice at address, although I tend to need to align it 1/4" inside the King Cobra alignment mark, the toe is aligned more with the ball. Both shafts seemed to perform very well. I tested the 5.5 in the simulator and did some field tests with the 6.0 shaft. One thing that annoyed me at first is the slight draw bias, but as I got tired the draw bias helped me stay straight on the range. I...

Does what is advertised.

Posted

Pros: Lots of spin and cofidence around the greens, very durable.

Cons: Not for short hitters.

I was just recently given the opportunity to test the Bridgestone B330-S balls, and took 3 of them with me to a local par 3 course 3 times and used them for a 13 hole round.   The performance is exactly as advertised, my feeling is that they were fitted too aggressively for me due to the fact that the current balls I use are a so called "distance" ball. They should change the BFit to include mainly swing speed. I think these balls are fit for someone with a 110 swing speed.   Even with a slow swing speed, these babies really perform on the course. I am even thinking of taking them to the course, tomorrow at Goose Creek. I like the softer feel on the approach shots less than...

The trainer is deceptively helpful.

Posted

Pros: Easy to use, helps with timing.

Cons: You need to have a proper swing before using it.

When I first got this trainer three months ago, I could not take advantage of it. Now that I am learning to use a proper swing, it helps me with my timing. It forces you to use your hips more and gives you a good feel when you get the timing correct. The only con is that the shaft is not flexible enough and it stops abruptly after the follow through. It is a little hard on the wrists when set below 5. I warm up as recommended using a setting in the 9 or above, and gradually move down the graduations. Currently, I can comfortably make it click at 5. This is the setting on the speed dial. Even at the lower speed settings you can do half swings and get the timing down there as well. The...

Great club, it is the only one I can hit reliably other than my 4H of the same brand and make.

Posted

Pros: Solid shots with no effort.

Cons: The white top makes it very obvious, but now that there's lots of use in it it has lost a lot of the lighthouse glint.

This club along with the partner 4H are the best purchases I have ever made. Although, I did buy both of mine at Dick's on sale for the same price last year. The lefty club selection at my local Golfsmith seems to focus on the latest clubs. These hybrids have replaced both of my fairway woods. They have a much more compact head, and elicit much more confidence in my shots. However, since I generally hit off the standard tees, I rarely need the 240 to 250 yards possible from a 3 fairway wood. That is, possible if I manage to hit that fairway wood well. These clubs are heavier and more compact, and I feel like I do not need to swing hard to get the desired distance. This in turn, makes...
