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 Nike Method Core 3 mallet putter and just received it from Fedex yesterday. Needed help in the putting department and decided to get a mallet after trying out a few.

Buy?  ha- in this economy??

What i did get was a severe case of the "wants" when i was pounding a Ping Answer 10.5 into the net.

But if you consider Craigslist a 'store'  i just picked up a Very Good condition 3H,4H,5,6,7,8,9,PW of Callaway Diablo Edges in steel uniflex for $93.   Time before that:  a mint Odessey White Hot blade Putter for $25, before that a Ping G2 10.5 in Good condition for $20.

Sweet mother i love CL.

I didn't buy, I actually returned my Nike Method putter I just bought and used the money to buy my wife some pearl earrings!  It's winter, so I wont need the new putter anytime soon anyways!  And no I'm not in the dog house, thus prompting the jewelry purchase!  LOL!

Today I bought a Callaway Xhot 19* 3 Hybrid. I also got fitted for some Mizuno JPX-825's.  I ordered them in standard lie +.5 with Dynagold steel 120 gram stiff shafts 4-PW.  Should be in next Friday. Can't wait.

Multi-compound grips for 4i - PW (same as on my woods and hybrids)

now that I've swung them, I need three more for my wedges.  I held off on those since I wanted to compare for feel.  I like how definite and secure the grip feels.

    • Why does Rory struggle with consistency?
    • I would say it depends on how the 3W distance works with the length of the holes he is going to be playing. If there are par 4s around 430 for example I think he would be foolish not to carry a club that enabled him to get there in 2. Agree however that flexibility goes up drastically if not carrying putter and with the tournament several weeks away there is theoretically enough time to get comfortable with using a low lofted metalwood or bladed wedge. Really would be ideal to know the course to help strategize.
    • i would suggest a more lofted fairway wood or hybrid since a 3 wood needs a good lie to be hit off the fairway.  If you are in the rough or in a bad lie, then the 6 iron would be your only choice.  A 5 wood might be shorter but is more flexible and adaptable in the types of lies you can play it from.  The iron for me would be anything from a 6 to 8 iron depending on your comfort and distance.  The wedge you should consider whether you can play a slightly less lofted wedge, like a gap wedge maybe.  However, the less loft you have the more skill you need in playing different shots.  Hitting a sand wedge is easier but it does mean most of your shots around and close to the green will be high lofted shots. The putter is the one club where I question whether you truly need it.  If you can putt with something like the wood/hybrid in your bag, that gives you far greater options and flexibility.  However, it would need practice since we rarely putt with any other club. In my case a 4 club choice would be 4 hybrid, 7 iron, PW and SW/LW depending on course conditions.  I would putt with the hybrid and use that for most tee shots.  On my home course, there are maybe two holes where I couldn't reach a green in regulation with those clubs.   Essentially long par 4's where I need to hit driver off the tee.
    • Are the 512 replies to this topic about Rory being overrated or has this become a Rory Catch all topic? If the latter, the topic title should maybe reflect it. Good to see him win again. His first since 2019. 2020 wasn’t his best year and an up-and-down 2021 so far with missing the cut one week and being top 10 the next.  But that has been Rory all along and maybe what spurred this topic: his inconsistent performance. One week he’s hitting it as well as anyone has and the next he’s out of it and struggling. His talent is undeniable, but inconsistency is keeping him down.
    • I'm not an expert but the swing in the video seemed like you did not bring the upper body around quickly enough. Is it possible your focus on not firing the shoulder right away is causing too much lag there? Swing is about tempo so too slow can be an error just like too fast.
