Last (Golf) Thing You Bought


Recommended Posts

Ordered these for my member/guest awards dinner in October. I ordered them a bit early, but the price was right using LM's fathers day deal.

Another cart bag because I just wanted one that was red/white/black and 2 Adidas shirts.

There was also a set of TM Burner 2.0 irons on a ridiculous sale but as I was "thinking" about it walking around looking at other things, some guy beat me to it because I decided to get them, walked back over and they were gone :(.

You won't be hard to find in the crowd wearing those, that's for sure.

My local Academy is selling the Nike 20XI's for $30 a box....buy 2 get 1 free. Guess who just paid $20/doz for 3 boxes of 20XI's? hehe

EDIT: Nevermind. Wife just called and said that they won't honor the tag on the shelf apparently. So just 1 box for $30. Stupid.

I was gonna say. My store was selling for 36 a dozen then changed to full price and went to buy 2 get 1 free. It would be awesome to get both deals haha

False advertising if you ask me. I think I'll just be buying my golf supplies from my clubs proshop or online from now on. I've had too many unethical experiences with Academy.

Gorgeous.

New to the site.

Went to the golf store looking for 1. Irons  2.  Driver  3.  Fairway woods  4.  Wedges.  Putter was no where on the priority list by the way.

First store I went to didnt have what I wanted (I was looking for last years Burner Irons or last years Burner driver, all they had were this year clubs).  Tried the TaylorMade RBZ Irons and Driver and just didnt like them for some reason.

So I drove the extra 40 miles to Golfsmith and tried the SuperFast Burner 2.0 and after the first swing I was sold.  I've played two rounds with it and it has shaved 8-10 strokes off (went from 92-95 to shooting 84 and 85).  Had no idea that my drives were holding my game back that much.  Also, I really liked the price of the new Taylor Made White Smoke putter, so i gave in a bought it.  I putted much better with it today than yesterday, overall I think I'm going to like it but still getting used to it.  Probably shouldve saved the money and waited on the irons that I desperately need but you know how going into a golf store with money in your pocket can be.

My new driver. Beautiful in my eyes. a 9 instead of a 10 [or the 11 in the store] it has a "lite" sticker on the head.. not sure what that means.

Then a Maxfli C3 wide faced putter. looks similar to this one.. cant really get a pic of it right now... but very pleased with it.. my bag is basically complete.. maybe a new wedge will be next.. 56degree or so.

Finally got around to ordering my new bag, the Ogio Ozone XX in the charcoal/burst colors.  Should have it Friday.

Also replaced my 16.5° fairway, and the 21° and 24° hybrids with 15° and 19° fairways and a 23° hybrid.

I just got this bag about 2 weeks ago. I love it.

An Arthur Excaliber Tour 6+ shaft to replace the Eclipse I broke in my Fast 12. I've heard a lot of positive things, thought I'd give it a try. Bought a Black Widow Widow Maker grip to go along with it and match my other grips.

    • I got my first round in. I haven't used Game Golf in so long, I got out of the habit of tagging. Missed a few shots on the course, though it was pretty easy to edit in on my computer. Like @iacas, I also felt the editor was just okay. I didn't have an issue with the map size, but I found scrolling up and down a lot a bit tedious. I had to mess around with adding shots and penalties, though, so I had to spend more time editing off the map. The penalty functions weren't very intuitive. They seem to add an additional "dead shot" (does not appear to track the distance for your stats) for counting purposes as well as a penalty stroke. The lost ball one makes sense, as it gives you a marker with an X on it so you can mark off where you hit the ball that was lost, then your next shot is from where you played your last stroke to where you play your next one. But the drop ball function seems to work the exact same way, which doesn't make sense. If I hit into a penalty area I'm likely not taking S&D, so in order to make it work score-wise, I ended up just deleting the original tracked shot. I don't know if I'm doing that correctly. I didn't like tagging on my belt the way I used Game Golf. As Erik mentioned, the vibration is subtle and it doesn't beep. I often didn't know if it registered. Also the Game Golf unit was angled so you can tag the club hanging down at your side naturally. Tagging the Shot Scope requires bringing the club perpendicular to the ground. It's awkward and I almost hit a playing partner today while tagging a putt because he was walking past me and didn't expect me to bring the club up like that. Next time I'm going to try wearing the unit on my left like I do my Garmin and tagging by bringing the unit to the club. I might even stop using the Garmin if the GPS on the H4 is good enough. Didn't get a chance to compare today because I forgot my Garmin. I didn't know there was a pin marker function. I'm going to have to try that next time. So far I like the data it presents. It seems more detailed than Game Golf. I'll form a more complete opinion of it as I play more rounds.
    • I realize this got no traction initially. But for anyone interested, SwingLogic will be dropping this for pre-orders early in the week. No idea what the timeline is for delivery though. I plan to give it a shot. If it turns out to be comparable to the Mevo or R10, I'd imagine it'll do really well. 
    • Day 582: Worked a bit on another piece of having my upper center move toward the target in transition. I call it the Leaning Tower of Pisa feel. It is more for the irons. For driver, it doesn’t need to be as pronounced. Videos the practice.
