You can't just say "Golf balls"!  What kind? How much did you pay? Are those your regular kind or are you trying something new?

Titleist has a promotion that give an insulated tumbler with the purchase of a dozen Velocity balls, and I wanted the cup more than the balls, so I bought some. I think this promo is only available at on course shops. I first saw this on Team Titleist discussion board. I usually play ProV1x, but I'll give these a try. They were $29 with tax.

Bought a shag tube so when my net comes I don’t have to bend over to pick up the balls.

I bought an old, discontinued Zelocity launch monitor from a guy who was paid in the units when the company went out of business.  Sounds shady, I know, but it was just fifty bucks, and if it gives me some basic data, it'll be worth it.  I figure that once the pandemic allows, I'll take it in and compare readings with the Flightscope at the place that I take lessons and see how accurate it is.  I'm really hoping that it will help me get a real handle on what my average distances are.

So, this thing arrived today, and I was able to get out and hit a few shots after the rain.  Seems to be pretty accurate.  It shows a well struck 7 iron with a carry distance of about 145 yards, and a well struck 9 iron carrying about 125 yards.  Recently, I had a well struck 7 iron show a carry of 156 yards, as measured by a FlightScope X3 unit indoors, and a well struck 9 iron carry 136 at an outdoor range with TopTracer technology. 

Hopefully, I'll get a chance to take it with me to my next lesson - whenever that is - and check it next to the FlightScope. If it is around ten yards off, at least I'll have a baseline, and I'll be able to monitor my distances and get more consistent.  That's one of the (many) things about my game that I have simply been clueless about. Regardless of its overall accuracy, it could definitely distinguish between a well struck ball and a fat shot, or one off the toe.  I saw a big drop off on those.

Won an ebay auction yesterday for a set of Vokey SM6 chrome wedges. They’ve seen a bit of play but should be a massive upgrade to my antique vokeys. At the very least having a set of 3 should be better. They are 52 56 and 60 in the F, S and M grinds and 8 10 8 bounce. Set me back 175€ for the set with shipping.

Callaway Epic Flash 5 wood with a Tensei Blue AV 75 X shaft from Callaway Pre Owned. Needed a club to slot above my 4i for tee shots on dogleg par 4s and second shots into certain par 5s, and I have a weird mental block when trying to hit hybrids, so 5 wood it was.

I have that same affliction with hybrids and woods in general. In fact I just started hitting my driver again last year. For about 2 years I teed off with my 3 iron and didn’t have a fairway wood of any type.

A dozen balls and a visor. For some reason visors seem to have become hard to find, so when I saw one I grabbed it.

Yeah, I didn't hit driver for the first 2.5-3 years that I played golf. Wasn't until last year that I finally figured it out enough to not cost myself two strokes per hole, and it made a huge difference in my scoring potential.
