Secured a par at my home course's hole #17 today. I am not happy with how long it took me to get better than bogey on it. I hit a poor tee shot, a good recovery punch shot, then a sweeping hook 6-iron to the green. I correctly read that the lie and setup would hook, aimed well left of the green, and swung. Big hook, ended on the left side of the green, 15' from the pin, and I darn near made the birdie putt too.
Speaking of which, I gave a par at #s 7 and 9 a good run today too. Still no birdies at my home course this year! 😞
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.
