I have no problem with people playing the way they choose, but we ARE in a part of TST specifically for Rules of Golf. @Ruler and I may disagree on whether a specific depressed area fits the Definition of Penalty Area, or on what may be or should be defined as GUR by the Committee, but we're each trying to have those discussions within the Rules as written. These kinds of discussions can be really useful in learning about the rules, they certainly have helped me to improve my understanding.
Does anyone else get annoyed at the incorrect usage and/or over usage of "literally"? Why does someone think they need to tell you "I literally just arrived." when you saw them come in the door? It makes me want to "figuratively" jump off a bridge.
Basically, our own rules. Although, talking to the pro shop, they suggest the same. Different strokes for different folks. Golf is a 'game', and how each play it is their right. Some who make it a profession, are very exacting on how they deal with the rules.
One of the members at our club is very fond of backhanded sarcastic compliments. "Great lag!" if you leave a putt short from 8-10 feet or "Best shot you've hit all day" for unremarkable shots while not saying anything at actual good shots. It's lame but of course he thinks he is gaming the crap out of us.
Welcome to The Sand Trap! I play Titleist 716 CB irons and also have a set of Mizuno MP-59. The 716 CB is very similar to the DCI 990 but has a tungsten insert in the toe of the 4-7 irons to help MOI. These have been my favorite irons so far. Center hits feel like butter and the lofts are close to traditional, i.e. the PW is 46 degrees. The leading edge has a bit of relief which I feel helps turf interaction. I don’t lose much distance on off center hits either. The 718 CB is similar. You can find used sets on eBay if interested.
The MP-59 is a precursor of the MP-20 MMC. They are also very nice irons and feel sweet with center hits. The titanium insert on these increases the MOI as does the MP-20. You can’t really go wrong with the MP-20 either. Try hitting them and see. Mizuno also has a wide range of stock shafts. And shafts have improved immensely since the DCI 990.
