Do you have it yet? If so how is it? It looks to me like it's a bit lighter, has a more up-to-date interface and you can use it for speed training now. 

To answer the original question, the most recent thing is some RCT balls, but that's not particularly interesting. I got myself a Mevo+ in the thanksgiving sale. If I had pulled the trigger already it would have been an exputt RG. Still not 100% sold on it.

I haven't sent my Quad back in yet. Monday.

I know little to nothing about golf equipment, but my uncle recently purchased a new golf bag that I really liked so I ended up picking up a similar one and it just arrived. It's pretty lightweight, has 14 slots which I specifically wanted and looks nice. It's the Ask Echo Lightweight Golf Stand Bag.

I am curious though, I was specifically looking for a bag that had the 14 slots but with the T-lock and iron separator slots (not sure what they're called). However I was only able to find this style on cart bags and not a single one for a carry bag. Wondering why this might be?

I grabbed a bag on Amazon specifically for the cart. Saint Andrew’s collection. And I have another cart only. But it’s not new. Then three carry/ stand bags. Two of  those are outfitted with clubs and balls so I can grab and go depending on weather. The saint Sndrews bag has all my cherished golf  possessions. Yeah I had some time on my hands to attain what I have.

Forgive my lack of knowledge, what are the differences in your clubs you choose based on the weather? Or were you referring to the bag specifically? Water proof bag vs. non?

I basically. Matched the clubs to the bag to the outing. If that makes sense. I have a set for a scruffy bag for winter golf. And then two relatively good set of clubs to totally acceptable bags for my week or day to day play and finally a really good set brand new for my tournament play.  Which generally means a private course with all the amenities. 

As for weather. I play regardless as long as the temps are over for fifty

Ok I see, thanks for explaining. Does switching to different clubs every so often tend to change your performance?

I dunno. This is the first year I’m trying it. lol. I use mostly cobra and my daily clubs are Tommy armor.  And some pretty good purchases of Taylor made for my 3,5,and hybrids. What is listed as my signature are my tournament clubs. I had the winter bag out but only made it to the simulator with that bag. Now that the full membership is paid I have switched that bag with an everyday bag cobra max set with a mallet putter. No big name putters for me but all mallets.

Picked up a replacement stock shaft for my G400 driver, an Aldila XTorsion in R flex.  Really like it - as the Alta CB seemed almost too whippy.  Some say the XTorsion is too board like, doesn’t seem that way so far.  

Ping G400 SFT 10deg  R flex
Ping G410 3w R flex
Ping G400 3h and 4h R flex
Taylormade SLDR 5i thru PW graphite shaft R flex
Cleveland CBX wedges - 50, 54, 58 or 52, 58 (depending on my mood)
Odyssey Versa or White Steel #5

I also build my own clubs and regrip them. So the feel is pretty consistent

That's cool.

I'm a little envious. 

My bag is an ever-changing combination of clubs. 

A mix I am forever tinkering with.

Bought a new driver headcover and a Rhoback crew neck from the golf podcast No Laying Up a few weeks ago and just ordered the FS-01 Members Only shoe/gift set last night.

I am a coach/instructor/teacher, so while there will be fun ahead… it's mostly for work. Which can be fun, too. 😄

I'll likely bring it with me to Ohio. But also… you'll see it here when you visit for a lesson. And… this ends Friday:

    • Yes, I listened to the first couple of seasons but just lost interest in the content .. I think they have proven as many of us already know it's really hard to get to scratch ... esp as we age ....  I was feeling confident in hitting my target this year of 5HC range(got to low 6s) but hit a wall in my short game in a few comps and now just over 9HC !!!! ...gutted but know it can go down just as fast esp during summer only 2-3 holes killing my score every round .. mental issues with one PAR3 at my local I think I've had a PAR on once in 20+ rds... I have great respect for anyone playing off low singles + golfers ...very impressive skills    I do wonder how playing different courses can help one's HC aspirations ... my local is well know tough greens and tight lies to bare sand pockets close to fairways/greens..  my closest 18 holes course I play at and score much better on average ..last three rounds +7 +6 +3 ..Vs my course best +6 with many much higher
    • Just turned on the TV. Damn.. cut at +6?? WTF happened? Wind? Greens?
    • I’m actively saying “miss it” or “ hit it in the water” on every Dechamblow shot. Can’t stand the guy and his phony scientist schtick.
    • I’m glad Mike didn’t quit and good on him for posting. In the past he’s talked about losing shots with his short game and it seems that’s the area he needs the most practice.    I still think he’s playing golf swing and not golf. Great on the range but it doesn’t translate. Maybe he needs to read LSW?
    • Wow. Ouch. I don't know how anyone could genuinely come away with any positives given the context. I'm going to give it a listen.
