You could be right, I’d like to try it for a while though. I used it today for the first time for a round. I shot exactly my handicap, 16 over. My ballstriking was better I thought, I had a few three putts and a couple of bad pitches that would have dropped that score by 4-5 strokes.
I was especially pleased with my driver, after the first few it started to go really well and I had 9 drives that I would be happy with and that is very good for me.
It probably is a band aid but I’ll give it a shot for a few rounds anyway and see how it goes.
Out of interest what do you think might be tougher to do?
Wednesday I talked to Patrick in Chicago. He put me on hold for about 20 minutes to discuss the situation and said they would have a person build me a new club and have to me very quickly. He stated that the reason Ryan (head guy) didn't return my call because he thought that somebody in Detroit would follow up. Thursday I received a tracking number from Patrick. Today I received my old 8 iron back. It was repaired, not new but I guess that doesn't bother me too much. They did not return my Game Golf tag. I can tell it was the same grip because the silicone was still on the top of the grip.
You can make up your own mind about going to Club Champion but for me, their customer service was more than toxic.
Day 187 - July 3, 2020
Hit 15 balls on the range. This takes about ten minutes. All but two were really well hit, and those were a bit heavy because I was exaggerating a piece intended to help me get "into the ground" a bit more.
I just managed to snag a set of the legendary and long-coveted 1958-59 Wilson Staff Dyna-Powered irons, with original leather grips and shaft bands. It seems that COVID is prompting some of the hoarders to let go. First, I admire the set's stunning quality. These would cost $2,500 today. After two rounds with them in the bag (4-9 irons), I shot my best 9-hole score in 8-10 years -- a one-under 35. Deadly on the Par 3s. Pretty good score for a older guy. I will never bag another set of irons -- so intuitive. (Except in bad winter conditions will go back to my Ping s59s.) I like the 1958-59 blades most likely because I grew up playing a set of 1969-70 W/S Bullet Backs, another fine model year for blades. Distance is not great, even accounting for the number-creep of the last 30 years, but I don't need distance as my fairway woods My favorite wedge at the moment is a 1956 Wilson Triple-Duty wedge. Very heavy club, surely a swing weight of E-something. In my irons, I want accuracy both in terms of distance and direction. Having said that, my woods are Ping G30, TM Aeroburner Mini-Driver, TM R580 3W, and TM 19* Raylor; two of those four are 20 years old or older. All are great woods, reliable and long.
I'm not going to lie...I thought about that, haha. Yeah I even had a few in the hitting bay roll out to 282 through 285 yards. Did he throw a 20 mph artificial wind behind me?! haha. Nah we had a couple drivers going in the 270's not just the Sim, but the Sim felt the most comfortable, so I'll just have to go back in get some answers.
