Last (Golf) Thing You Bought

Recommended Posts

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!

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.

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).

Awards, Achievements, and Accolades

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

    • Lesson 4/15: Discussed my sudden (or likely not so sudden) regression in ball striking over the last 11 holes. Teacher observed about three swings and identified an issue. Takeaway had drifted inside, and was very much a hands move without enough shoulder pitch or turn. Worked on feeling my lead shoulder pitch down and around, and the feeling is that my shoulders/torso are moving the club back and not the hands. Getting this sorted out is priority piece for the next month. After about 10 balls at slow speed, contact was back to center, with misses toward the toe side, instead of heel. AoA was 5-6 degrees down with 7-iron, path 2-3 degrees I > O, but still need to work on clubface control; some straight balls, some over draws, and some push fades - clubface control is a co-priority piece. Recentering/flow is good with irons, but as I transition into longer clubs like hybrid/3W, I hang back for some reason. Really need to feel a "fall" toward the ball with hybrid/3W, and less push off the trail leg, and more thought on rotation to arrest the fall. Worked on the priority piece with hybrid on the launch monitor after lesson, and the backswing priority piece was working well, and toward the end I had made some progress figuring out clubface control. From 230 yards out on the GC4 range, the bad L/R misses were still mostly within nGIR proximity, so if this is as bad as it gets as I fine tune this, I'm happy. Spend the last 15 minutes on the launch monitor hitting driver. I was pretty tired at this point, but swing speed was good, typical range around 110-112mph, with a max of 115mph.
    • For dispersion control, consider a shaft length between 44” and 45”.
    • Day 485: Lesson and an hour on the GC4 launch monitor afterwards. New priority piece to work on.
    • I get your point. I just think it is tad bit similar to broomsticks that have contact to the body (forearms in this case) in addition to palms. A tiny skill cheat IMO.  From what I understand weight has an individual sweet spot. Any heavier and distance consistency  suffers.  Of course this all is based on a sample size of one - me vs. a few thousand of yours. So yeah.. don't think I will be exactly picketing for a ban or anything, just a little light Thursday afternoon musing..😊.
