Last (Golf) Thing You Bought

Recommended Posts

I thought I would never own a TaylorMade club.  But at the golf shop last night, they had a set of 3 Rescue 11 FCT hybrids with Accra 50i shafts.  I hit the 18° 3-H on their monitor, which is actually fairly accurate.  Was killing it, so I went ahead on bought it.  I'm sitting here thinking that I might go back this morning after they open and get the other two ( a 21° 4-H and a 23.5° 5-H).

Two shirts (Page & Tuttle) with the Logo of the course I grew up on....Juniper Hills in Frankfort, KY.

Got to play there last week while visiting relatives.....shot an 87 & 88 from the Blues (6,250 yds)

Adidas Street Golf Shoes - White on White - but laced them up with the Black laces.  I picked them up at Dicks... Originally $89, on sale for $79... And the wife had a $20 coupon.  So I ended up paying less than $65 with tax and all.  They are very nice shoes for that price.

They sent it to me via e-mail as part of their new promotion for rewarding customers based on purchases.

Went over to my fitter here in Newport today... Looking at re-gripping my entire set with the Iomic grips.  Didn't pull the trigger yet... But I did buy some new Travis Matthews threads.  3 shirts all on sale.

Earlier this week I picked up a set (3H, 4H 5H) Taylormade R11 hybrids.  Then picked up a 2H a couple days later.  I really hate to say this, but I am in love with these clubs.  I'll be bagging the 2, 4, and 5 for now.

Today I traded in a bunch of clubs I have been picking up at garage sales here and there for a White Ice 2 ball center shafted putter.

    • 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.
