Just purchased the following for post surgery golf being that I am a USAF Veteran I thought they would be appropriate.  

Titleist T400 irons. I haven’t gotten them yet, but they are on order!

Bought a US Kids golf set and pink hello kitty balls for my daughter.  It's for her 3rd birthday so i'm just hoping she likes golf as much as her dad.

Bought a new set of 3-PW "cosmetically blemished" KE4 heads for $65.  Not sure what I am going to do with them, but at that price I couldn't resist.  I'll probably use them to test some different shafts and such.

Well, here it goes...

I got:

Taylormade Tour Preferred MC irons (3-PW, DG S300 shafts) -- they were bought by somebody else, used for two rounds and returned, cost me $399

Taylormade XFT wedges (52°, 56°, and 60°), $90 each

Odyssey Black Series #6 Putter, $135

Titleist 910D3 (RIP shaft, stiff), $359

Sun Mountain Four 5 bag, $199

Two pairs of True Tour shoes (all white and all black), $159 each

Tees, $6

Everything other than the irons and wedges were purchased at Golfsmith and they were giving $100 off any $500 purchase so I split it up and made two $500 purchases... got just over $1000 in stuff for just about $800... can't beat that.

I'm still gonna be getting a new three wood and hybrids... almost have my stolen set replaced.

Used bridgestone j33r 8.5 driver (love it so far im driving the ball 250 with an easy swing and 260-280 if i hit it hard)

2x 12 pk of Bridgestone e5 2011 balls( so far they perform very well, I shot a 82 with them last time out ,, I might try the e6's next, )

now im shopping for a nice set of irons to replace my Ben Hogan Apex FTX irons

- Box of Bridgestone E6 balls for times when straightness off the tee is more important than green touch.

- Two ball trial pack of TaylorMade Penta TP's. Wanted to see what all the fuss is about and whether they warrant the extra coin for days when my golf is worthy of them.

- Mizuno JPX glove.

- Pink + White castle tees as I'm not sure which will be the correct height for my driver. May even be the silvers but I doubt it as I generally have a low contact point.

- Two pairs trousers that were on special but having got them home, the 34" waist has a 10" gap across the front so they're a HIDEOUS cut and will be going back! NOTE: All my other 34" waist trousers and jeans fit perfectly before some smartass tells me I've put on a bit of weight. hehe

    • I'm watching this video and he mentions "he got himself a little more out onto the front of his feet" and "he's got himself more centred in to back of his feet" in the other comparison https://youtu.be/S8dkDx8YVkI?t=242  Does that mean he puts more weight on the front of his feet than the back?   One more question: how do you create more space for the right arm during impact as mentioned here? He's more tipped over which allows this , I think http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S8dkDx8YVkI?t=280 Would reducing how much your right forearm can rotate clockwise help with this, duringthe end of your backswing?
    • Sounds like he may have originated from my neck of the woods,   ‘Awayanbileyerheid’ is a fairly humorous response to someone ,  sort of like ,get lost your talking drivel (nonsense) If you want to get an insight of the meaning , Google ‘ Parliamo Glasgow’ -;))
    • I don’t think there is anything wrong with watching YouTube golf instruction videos, if and only if you stick to one or two instructors. I personally like Matt Fisher and Danny Maude myself.    Funny story: I played golf with three guys I haven’t seen in person since about 2003 today. Anyway one of the guys I played with, reminded me of a video I watched on posture recently, with Danny Maude. Me as a low single figure handicap my arms look like / at address down the line. You want them like | or \ slightly on the latter. My posture sucks… and I shot 1 under on the back today.
    • Can you share some information about your computer, such as OS?
    • There used to be a joke about the instructional articles in Golf Digest.  It might still be there, I haven't subscribed in years.  Anyway, every odd-numbered month, the lesson would be "fix your slice," but what they wouldn't tell you is that it'd cost you 10 yards.  In even numbered months, they'd tell you how to gain 10 yards on your tee shot, but not tell you that it'd cause you to slice. YouTube instruction is a bit like that.  You'll get conflicting information that may or may not cancel out.  Find someone reputable and get lessons for you not for some generic you. If you need someone online to give you something to work on, and don't feel like spending the money for something quality like Evolvr (hey, money was tight when I took up golf, I understand), at least make a "My Swing" thread and try what ends up being suggested for you.  The first time I did this, I was shocked at how someone could watch a few swings on video and give me good advice of what to practice that resulted in some improvement.
