Last (Golf) Thing You Bought


Recommended Posts

My quarterly hat.. another Titleist Pro V1/FJ pro mesh hat. PS: Dear Team Titleist, please for the love of everything sacred open your hearts to those of us with abnormally large domes and offer us an XL hat @ 60-62cm. It takes 8-10 sessions of light-headedness and blurry vision before my L/XL hat fits somewhat comfortably! :pound:

Couldn't agree more. I find the relax fit adjustable hats titleist has are awesome. They're somewhat hard to find.. The type stricker and DeLaet wear.

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.

Garmin Approach S1 - $150. Not bad.

I thought about a rangefinder, but figured for me, its not worth $300-$400 and am not the type of guy who will want to pull it out for every shot

I feel your pain Spyder, but it's far from just Titleist. What drives me crazy it's the difference in size in two identical hats. I don't have much in the way of local options, and it makes buying online a risky proposition.

My wife has caught the golf bug (totally unexpectedly) so our recent visits to the golf store has been outfitting HER with clothes, equipment, etc. Dropping a load of cash in the golf store isn't a new thing at all but it's usually all for me... That said, I did grab a Nike Vr driver on clearance for $40 and a few boxes of Callaway Hex Hot Pro balls on sale. Come on, spring!

Just pulled the trigger on 13 GP New Decade Multicompound grips to re-grip with before the season. I love how the NDMCs look and feel but I wish they were a bit cheaper. I found a decent deal and paid less than $8 per. Went with the all blacks which I'm pumped about.  I think they'll look pretty good.

I'll be looking at grips tomorrow myself. Just not sure what to throw on the new AP1 712s. It's a toss-up between Winn DriTacs and GP NDMCs (Black/Red).

I really like the feel on the GP NDMCs. They are firm and there's a good amount of feedback. I actually have a set of the Black/Red on my clubs now that the all blacks will be replacing.

My buddy just put the DriTacs on his clubs and they feel pretty nice. In my opinion they felt a bit softer than the NDMCs but still a very nice grip. I don't think you can go wrong either way, just what feels better to you. Also, not sure if it's a big deal for you to have a cord section on the grip, which the NDMCs do but the DriTacs don't.

Put a SuperStroke Slim 3.0 on my Versa #7.

I really like mine..Much better than the stock grip.

+1 on the New Decade Multicompounds. Was never really a fan of corded grips but really like these. Solid feel and decent feedback - not as much as I expected from a grip as firm. They are pricey, though. Would love to hear where you found that deal - I'd grab another set now to keep on hand for the next regrip.

Depending on where you're located they're on sale annually at a grip event usually each February for about 40% off at GolfTown or GolfSmith.

I know what you mean about these grips. I just bought a set of Nike Covert Irons and had them re-gripped with these beauties and I must say they look and feel great. I spent $9 per grip but my local shop dosen't charge for installation so I didn't feel so bad.

Ordered from Edwin Watts. They had 10% off, they gave me an instant rebate coupon $10 off, and they had free shipping. Math came out to approx. $7.92 per grip.

Yeah I have a 5.0 on my old putter and I really like it. However I had been testing putters with the 3.0 and decided I liked it the same, plus it fits in the golf bag a lot better.

Just got back from buying clubs at a Pawn shop. Yeah not a gollf store but at least the clubs will be used for my PGM classes and not...who knows what they might end up being used for in this college town lol. Got about 15 older clubs including an old persimmion driver and a blade 3 iron. All for 75 dollars.

    • I’ve got tennis elbow so I’ve only been a few times over the last few years as hitting balls one after the other does me no favours.   I’ve got tennis elbow so I’ve only been a few times over the last few years as hitting balls one after the other does me no favours.   I usually play Wednesdays and Fridays also the odd Monday  . If I don’t play Monday I will often go and have some practice, either that or a Tuesday. I often take the Driver , 3 wood 4,5 & 6 irons out of the bag and go with the rest. Learn to hit shots with the clubs I have ,stop around the green have a few chips ,pitches putts etc.  Also I read Dave Pelz’s short game book a while back. I’ve adapted my bike and can fit a wedge on it. At night I go down to the corner of a mown area by sports fields. I take turns of which wedge, and do pitch & 2 different ‘finesse’ swings. Over summer I’ve gotten a pretty fair idea of how far I hit the various swings & it’s definitely paid dividends . I regularly get up & down from under 100 yards, especially under 40/50.  Before I just sort of guessed which club, and the other benefit is swinging slower I find I’m much more accurate with my direction. 
    • One of the things I have noticed about really good Youtube channels - let alone excellent films, is exactly this. There might be a time lapse that would take hours to video, but it is on screen for perhaps less than two seconds. But it gives the presentation quality. Look at films with incredible special effects and costumes/props - Lord of the Rings, for example. Years and years go into making things like a belt that a camera may never even focus on, or be a hundred metres a way, but the film wouldn't work without them.The total is greater than the sum of its parts. The flip side of this, of course, is that a prop that takes 5 minutes to make and looks like crap it is noticeably crap even if it is on screen for half a second, like a poorly photoshopped "family portrait" or newspaper "front page" with a stuck on headline on paper not even close to the colour of the newspaper. The devil is in the detail and tiny things connect to make the big picture. A bit like golf, perhaps.
    • I’d rather have it shut than open. I can find a swing where it’s more shut than that. Open doesn’t work for me, the extended lead wrist gets me steep and I shallow late, leave the face too open (or shank) going to A7. The last 3 instructors I’ve worked with have told me to bow the lead wrist at 4 more and I’ll get away from that and get steep.  When I try and do that my arms come off my chest and path goes too out to in. When I feel like I drop the club behind me at A4 my arms will go out towards the ball pretty good I think, like in the second swing, at A5 my hands bisect the torso. 
    • My 2 cents is that if you have to add more than 1.5" or so, you are really in need of new shafts. As far as "orange dot length" is concerned, I always thought that the dot color only denoted lie angle, not length. For example, if I were to order Pings, I would want blue dot (1" upright) at standard length (I fall on the short end of standard range). I just came across an old post on here that give a good Ping chart. Don't comment in there unless it is really pertinent though, as it is quite an old thread.
