With Black Friday coming up and Christmas shopping about to commence I figured I'd make the yearly post about your wish list.  So lets hear it..

What is on your list for Christmas?

We don't exchange gifts but I will likely buy something for myself. Been considering an irons change but not sure. Want to demo the Ci11's and hit the Cleveland CG16's again before I make up my mind.

I bought the CG16 wedges (52, 56, 60) and I am enjoying them very much.

It's too bad the Nike Covert doesn't release earlier. I liked how the 913 felt when I tried it out over the weekend, but I do want to test out the Covert before making a decision.

Definitely try out different sets, but I will say that I absolutely love my Ci11's. Its a shame so many people dismiss Wilson Staff without even looking at their stuff. The Ci11 Irons and the DX-i Hybrids and woods are fantastic clubs. My 5 wood is money in the bank.

It is nice that the Ci11's come with both a PW and GW, but you need to buy the 3i seperate if you want one (I did, because I wanted the full set, though it rarely gets used). But I think you will really enjoy them. Good luck with whatever you choose.

As for me, my family will be buying me PentaTP5's, as that's what I always ask for when they ask what I want. There really isn't a club I want that I don't have,  along with 4 pairs of golf shoes, dozens of golf shirts and pants. Its hard to choose anything golf related when I have 3 full bags of high end clubs already. 2 golf GPS's, a range finder. 14-15 dozen balls (9 PentaTP5's, 5-6 ProV1's). But I played 140 rounds of golf this summer, so balls are never a waste for me. I rarely use them, but the Penta's get chewed up pretty bad. I never use a ball for more than 18 holes before throwing it in to my practice pails.

I do have a Nintendo WiiU pre-ordered for Sunday morning, so i'll probably ask the wife for a few games for that.

Although I may check to see if WS makes a 2 iron for the Ci11's. I would like to have one. If they do, I may ask the wife for that as well. Hoping I see some ideas for cool golf stuff I dont have in this thread.

Already ordered my Christmas present - a SC Custom Shop Pro Platinum.  Also looking at the new Titleist 913 fairway woods.  I'm going to stick with my irons since I'm hitting them well and don't want to mess that up by adjusting to new ones.

Meh, to be everything they have done is a step back from the rapture. I liked the anser, but found there were better clubs with better adjustability options.

I may buy myself a few gloves or something, but I'm doing alright in the equipment department. The only thing that really needs replacing is my hybrid. Non-golf I'm making some upgrades to my computer. New RAM, replacing the optical drive with a hard drive, swapping the old one out for an SDD.

Dear Santa, I would like a pair of Adidas Puremotion shoes, size 9.5 in red and black I would also like the 5sk dvds I would also like the new Callaway RAZR Fit Xtreme with the Matrix 7m3 Black Tie shaft (I know you have connections) And lastly, an Edel putter Sincerely, Bill P.S. I'll totally have my wife bake you more of those cookies you liked last year.

I think I want to buy myself a Titleist 14 way cart bag but I don't know if I can convince myself to spend the money on something that has no possibility whatsoever to lower my scores.

Definitely golf shoes, some new golf balls (I still tend to lose a lot, so I play Warbirds/Gamers/Mojos), perhaps a hat or two to protect my ever increasing scalp.

I'm relatively new to playing again, having picked it up again this summer after not playing since my mid-teens (I'm 37 now, and it's NOT like riding a bike, I'm horrible at golf right now). I really don't want to ask for much in the equipment category, as I'm really not looking to have family drop lots of money on equipment I'll hit equally as bad as anything I have right now!

    • Day 3: COVID-19 day 6 and 7 drills again. Then downswing priority piece work with 7-iron, not much, just 10 balls. 
    • Day 69, August 2, 2021 More work on shortening my backswing. I don’t want to even get to hands to right shoulder… at least feeling like that.
    • I'm sure if you look at about two years ago on this site, I mentioned somewhere that after having my first ever sub-80 round (a nice 77 in a tournament!), I failed to break 90 for I think two months.  These things happen. Can't hit an iron?  What's the longest swing you can make with your PW and hit a good result?  If the answer is a chip, go hit some chips and, after some good ones, expand into pitches.  Similar with pitches into 3/4 shots, etc.   This is very likely something you can work out by going back to what you do well.  
    • First range session after another productive session with @iacas.  Working on getting my weight forward and also feel like my front forearm is turning to close the clubface.  Did work with my 6I, Driver, 3W, and 4H and hit all clubs really well with ball flights that overall I wasn't unhappy with.  Playing tomorrow and Wednesday so we'll see how we do.
