Last (Golf) Thing You Bought

Bought a set of wedges...the PW on my iron set is lofted at 44 degrees (I know, crazy strong!), so I treat my ion set 4-Pw as if they were a traditional 3-9 iron set (the distances match almost exactly to what I would get from traditionally lofted set of 3--9 iron)...anyway, back to what I bought...tried a whole bunch of wedges nd ended up buying a 48 (6 degree bounce), 52 (7 degree bounce) and 56 (13 degree bounce), Mizuno MPR-12 set of wedges! Used the 48 for the first time on the range yesterday and was pretty much taking dead aim at 110 yards...don't think I had a shot that was outside 5 feet of my target! Then played some half shots to around 70 yards and then played some high chip shots (open face/open stance) to 50 yards...all on the money! Can't really say enough about how good these wedges are...they come with stock DG Spinner shafts!

Been shooting 92 last 3 weeks....my Handicap is 17.

My irons are Callaway X-24 Hots

Picked up Mizuno MP-53 5-PW + 50*GW (Project X 4.5 graphite shaft) @ Golfsmith to try out this weekend.

Shot an 84, won $87 on Saturday, then played 36 with firends where I used to golf on Sunday....shot an 89 then we played an 18 hole scramble.

I guess I'll keep them as they were just dead freakin' straight!...They were a club short due to the difference in lofts (X-24 6 iron = 28* vs MP-53 6 iron = 30*).

I wanted to see if I could game the forged irons again.....WOW!

I like 'em.

I got them for $300, less the $200 for my X-24's, leaving me with $100 for the irons.....don't forget i won $87 on Saturday....so the change to Muzino is costing me $13!

You need to post a picture of that in the WITB thread - I love my iliac driver cover. Not sure why, but I just really do.

RBZ driver. Was hitting around 250 yards. Now hitting about 270 on average but can crack it over 300 if I really want to wind it.

Seems to have a larger sweetspot so it still flies if you miss-hit slightly.

I have read reviews about the sound being too loud. It might be slightly louder than average but I hardly notice. And when you see teh ball flying further than you used to hit it you can only hear angels singing !!

Cleveland Classic #6 mallet putter Bag Boy Express 3 wheel cart. Ogio Kingpin cart bag Tour Sticks alignment rods 2 dozen Srixon Q-Star whites First three I ordered from Rockbottom and the last two from GlobalGolf. About $250 for all that ,so I am quite happy. Add the Nike dura soft glove and replacement spikes for my footjoys I got at Wal-Mart, and upgrading my GolfLogix app, I think I have spent enough money for the time being. lol

Made my usual trip to Roger Dunns just to see what they had used and to pick up a few odds and ends and wound up buying a set of the original Nike Blades for $125... They are in absolutely amazing condition... I don't really have the game for blades but I don't care... they are beautiful and I wanted them.  They are quite possibly the prettiest club ever made (definitely the best Nike has ever put out).

Not exactly from a golf store, but from a local goodwill. Hogan PC 2-SW (the sw is a Hogan Radial) with 1, 3 & 5 speed slot laminated woods with matching numbers. All are sporting newer grips, and regular flex apex 3 shafts. The best find was an older TP Mills 12 putter. It's hard to believe that these clubs are nearly 30 years old! Grand total for the purchase was $30 after I rounded up for the veterans.







The shafts have some duct tape residue that should be easy to clean off.













This is a very sweet feeling putter!!




I played today using these clubs on a 5737 yard course and scored an 86. Good fun

    • I have struggled with the flip as well, and similarly have tried many different swing thoughts and drills to fix it with little success. What has worked for me recently though is this: focusing on keeping my right (trail) wrist hinged from the top of my backswing, as long as possible through impact. I have found that the more specific the instruction, the easier it is for me to carry out the action. In this case, the instruction is simple and direct-  keep your right hand bent back as long as possible. When I tried focusing on a more abstract swing thought like "turn your hips" , I've had a much harder time executing the movement. This video from Eric Cogorno really helped hammer in the concept of keeping the trail wrist hinged:    Who knows if this will work the same wonders for you as it has for me, but it could be something worth considering. Good luck!
    • You know better. So do better. </toughlove>
    • Will keep at it. Obviously what I'm feeling ain't real.
    • Hello. I have Morton's neuroma in my right foot. I'm applying Ice hot with lidocaína and according to my doctor I have to wait for the next month to see any improvements or he has to do an injection. So does any one have experienced this ? Any advice for treatment or how to avoid this and other injuries? Thanks 
    • No width? C’mon Vishal. You can do this. No reason to have that right elbow bending that much. No reason for the club to go back anywhere near that far.
