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.

Not the golf store, but Craigslist.  Found an ad on CL for "golf club making equipment" yesterday.  Ended up getting a Maltby loft/lie machine, a 6" cutoff saw, buffer with a hand full of extra buffing wheels and wire wheels, a couple different measuring sticks, a ferrule turning jig, an odd length & lie measuring tool, some various wedges including a couple unique ones (one with a milled face but no grooves, one beryllium).  Also got a Craftsman workbench with a thick butcher block top that had all kinds of stuff in the drawers; brand new but fairly old grips, leather strips, several rolls of grip tape, sanding belts of various grits, tons of steel wool.  Also a 30 gallon drum that had probably two dozen other clubs, mostly persimmon woods that had been restored by the old man that had all the equipment.

Got all this for $200.

I was talking to a guy a while back that sold those old woods. He said that he's sold a bunch to people that will refinish them then polyeurethane the crap out of them and turn them into taps for their bar. The rich fellers around Pinehurst can afford to have a bar complete with taps in their houses.

My last trip to an actual golf store was a small purchase with two putter grips and a bag of tees.  Last night, however, I spent $600 online on clubs I do not need and only purchased because the prices were too good to pass up.  I'm sick in the head.

I couldn't turn down $300 for a complete set 4-AW. When I bought them the guy told me that it was funny because they had just gotten those irons back the day before from a guy that had bought them a week ago. He said that the guy that bought them buys new clubs quite often.

Now I can't blame my bad iron shots on crappy irons. The old ones really are crappy, the 7 iron has a nice dent right in the center just from hitting balls with it.

Walked into the golf store today to see if they had a driver box I could have and walked out with yet another glove (plus the box).  I think this is the 8th glove purchase in 7 months.  This one feels really nice though, the leather on the bottom is textured almost like a microfiber towel.

Last trip to Golfsmith was a big one: Bought a new Taylormade Superfast 1.0 Driver (10.5 Loft with Stiff Shaft), also picked up a slightly used Callaway x-series Jaws 52 degree wedge, the old one with the mack daddy grooves. Later that night, i got on ebay and found a matching 56 degree wedge. Now on the lookout for the 60 degree wedge!

Anyone have experience with these wedges?

    • I've had between a half dozen and a dozen rounds at my home course this year;  part of that is I moved an hour away in 2019 and hadn't really explored the area.  I'll probably maintain club membership there because I like the group, and I'll look for one around my new home too. I say that because in those 6+ rounds, I've yet to par holes 7, 9, or 12;  I have yet to make a birdie at the course either.  Best-ball score at the course so far in 2021:  74. Earlier today, I played my third round at a course that might become my new home course, or at least my most commonly played course starting soon.  It's the second-closest (not including super expensive or private courses) to my house, an easy drive, and well within my price range.  After three rounds, I have a composite score there of 74, with two birdies in there. On one hand, the new course is easier (lower CR/SR) and a bit shorter, but on the other hand, that's interesting.
    • No new birdies tonight however closed out my league 9 with back to back birdies at 8 and 9. Lipped out the birdie at 7 I thought was in. Didn’t hit a GIR until 7.... took advantage of them tho. Took me a bit to get going after 2 weeks away from golf.
    • That's not a good plan, IMO. Where's your Member Swing topic? I don't see one.
    • Missed my league night on vacation in Virginia Beach last week. Hadn’t played in 2 weeks. Decided to go early and do extra short game work prior to my tee time. I expected to be a little bit off and need my short game. It paid off. I didn’t hit the ball well at all but managed to post a solid score. Right out of the gate I pulled a 9 iron left at 1. Ball on heavy rough, with a green sloping away. Chipped to one foot to save par. Bogey at 2 missed a short save. At 3 I got up and down again. Caught a flyer at 4 and missed a little deep. Made bogey. Up and down at 5. Bogey at 6. Then got hot. Stuck a wedge to 8 feet at 7 and lipped out the putt. Wedge to 6 feet at 8 made birdie. Stuck another wedge to 5 feet at 9 for birdie. Closing birdie birdie got me to +1 for the side. -2 net. Not bad considering I only hit 3 greens in regulation. 13 putts for the side is good for the score card.
    • Just an aside.  Bumped into an old friend on the practice green on Saturday.  Told him I was playing at 9:20 on Monday and that he was welcome to join me.  I let him know I'd be using a power cart because of a torn meniscus. Overnight I start thinking about the guy... a conspiracy theorist, crypto currency guy, etc., etc.  Though he did sell Mercedes' at a dealership once.  How mainstream is that? He shows up Monday morning.  I hop in the cart, clubs strapped in.  In short order Jeff straps on his clubs and hops in.  I say, "Jeff, gotta ask you a difficult and potentially rude question... are you vaccinated?"  "Hell no!"  So I told him I'd pay for a 2nd cart for him.  He was good with that and understood.  Great round... had a lot of fun.  But at 6 feet.
