It is not hard to keep my level of play these days as it is not a high level anymore. I play three times a week with no range time at all. I no longer play in tournaments and the only play is with my wife and what used to be two friends. Both are now physically unable to golf so it is just the wife and me. We play for the exercise and just being outside and to enjoy the tree lined course we play 3X a week.
The Callaway Steelhead series are what I consider to be semi-Game Improvement irons, especially the "Pro" version which has less of an offset than the regular line. You get a decent level of forgiveness on off-center hits, a good amount of feel - not as dramatic as forged blades but still, you can tell when you've hit a bad shot, and you can work the ball if you so choose. Personally, I prefer to hit straight but will fade or draw the ball when I need to get around an obstruction. That being said, I'm in the market for a new set as well and am considering multiple options in addition to the S.H. XR. I just got a fitting, am now digesting all the information I received and will probably decide over the fall/winter months.
I am not counting points yet for points that are obvious: for example, in Match 5 Phil is up 7 after 15 for the overall. That will be a point for red, but it's too confusing to partially do that.
There are 12 points up for grabs for the back nine and total. You can decide which are the ones that are basically conceded.
Plus, I believe there are still 5 challenge points left.
I think the challenges will be a crazy finish. Anything could happen.
You have the latest info, but as the board stands it's 28-27 RED.... IF all matches conclude the way they are now (a big IF, granted), with 5 challenges not invoked.
Then it boils down to: BLUE would need 4 of the 5 remaining challenges to win, 3 of the 5 remaining to tie.
