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.

Ordered some Footjoy DNA shoes, really excited for them.

You'll have to do a review on those shoes. Thinking about getting a pair myself.

Nothing........went to Edwin Watts going out of business sale and their prices were anything but good....

Will agree with this for the most part. I went in just to see what they had and the club pricing wasn't much lower than what you can find if you shop around. I did find some good deals on gloves (2 pairs of fj rain gloves, 2 pairs of fj winter gloves for $26). I rarely see xxl gloves in stores so I tend to scoop them up if they are around. They also had a pair of fj sport spikeless shoes for $35.00 that I didn't need, but again I rarely see size 14 in stores, and for the price I figured why not. The one in St. Louis is closing for good March 5th and I will probably stop by there again to see if I can find anything else. They didn't know if they were going to keep dropping prices the last time I was there 3 weeks ago.

I just picked up my driver that I had cutdown a half inch, so paid for that and the grip.  Then a cleaning tool.  However, I keep going and testing the Odyssey Tank #7 Versa SuperStroke putter and it's making me crazy.  I have been on the shelf for a over a month with putting the only thing I could do. If I ever have a putt on carpet competition in my house I'm going to make a lot of dough.  Man, just don't know about dropping the coin.

I've come full circle.   For many years, I bought nothing but FootJoy shoes, but it's been over a decade since my last pair. I buy 2 pair almost every year, so that's a lot of shoes!!  I strayed for various reasons, non of which have to do with being unhappy with FootJoy.   IE....I belonged to a club that only sold Nike for several years, etc, etc.......and I bought my shoes at the club for convenience.   My last couple pair have been ADIDAS because I liked their look.

Now coming full circle................. I went back to FootJoy and purchased 2 pair yesterday.

Pair 1 are all black Contour Series:  I planned to buy DryJoys, but these were MUCH more comfortable

Pair 2 are the all new DNA:

I've been wanting a pair of these!! These are much lighter than the Contour Series, and feel pretty good on the feet!   Good looking shoes too...IMO

PS...Yes, I only buy black shoes.  LOL

G25 4 Wood.  My goal is not to buy another club for the rest of the year except when I wear out my sand wedge.  ;)  We will see...

It's good to have goals......

Crap...it was a good try.

Bushnell Tour V3 JOLT.

Works well. Very happy with it. I've generally used a GPS app on my phone in the past and this is both faster and better.

These were on pretty darn cheap so I thought I'd try the Footjoy 'minimalist' offering.  I love all my various pairs of True Linkswear but I quite liked the look of these.  They are definitely NOT zero-drop heels but for Footjoy they are pretty low!

    • When I was doing fittings for Ping this past spring I had one customer come with his printout from Club Champion.  He was an average golfer pushing 70 years old.  The shafts they wanted to use, I never heard of before but each one for fw and driver were over $400.  Again… I have never heard of the name.  It goes with what Adam said about them using shafts not available from the mfg so you can’t get it through them instead. Ended up fitting him into Ping stock offerings that worked very well for him.  Happy customer!
    • I couldn’t afford to be a collector!  I do have a Newport TEi3 that was given to me all beat up.  I sent it to BOS and had it refinished back to original. At the moment I was given a Mizuno M-100 putter with the rare Mizuno “M” stamp on the bottom.  It belonged to a friend who passed away.  He played very little and this putter is very rusted as is the head.  I want to sell it.  I started selling it on FB Marketplace but everyone was such a PITA about it🙄 I ended doing nothing for now.  I was too busy to answer every stupid question that they didn’t want to look up.  I had Scotty customer service answer a few questions and I think it pissed people off because it proves them unknowledgeable.
    • It does bother me a little but the advent of adjustable hosels has got me used to it.  I use Tour Velvet grips to minimize it. Tour velvet is not a “busy” looking grip like a GP  MCC either. I was giving a lesson last night and the student just got a set of irons and had Golf Galaxy put midsize MCC grips on them.  They are all over the place.  It’s like Helen Keller did them.  I noticed it right away, I didn’t say anything to the student about it because it didn’t affect anything and he was happy with the clubs.  
    • You’re right, they aren’t. But they have a lot more insight to the consensus of other Native Americans than the vast majority of us do… Barely tangential here, but for anyone interested, if you Google the AZ Diamondback game from last Sunday, there was a spectacular Native American recognition ceremony.  My buddy’s daughter, brother, and nephew were among the dancers featured.  Very cool.
