  1. Bought one the other day off of ebay. Great club, low spin bomber, very nice cosmetics, nice set up, deep face, great feel, very forgiving. Way less spin on misshits compared to my other 2 drivers, 9.5 Callaway FT tour 430, Diamana Red Board 73g stiff, Bridgestone J33P 8.5, 380cc, Voodoo 60g stiff
  2. If your looking for unique, high quality golf clubs Bridgestone is your brand. frequency matched shafts, and precise swing weights etc. I have 3 sets, 1 set of Precept Forged cavity's from the 90's and 2 sets of j33B's, along with 2- j33P 380cc drivers, 8.5 and 9.5. Just ordered a new 715 driver, can't wait for it to arrive. They make outstanding clubs the only problem is finding them and getting some demo's to hit. The majority of their forged iron heads used to be made by Endo in Japan, don't know if they still are. I will never play another brand of irons
  3. played the 20xi-s this summer and really liked it, long and strong off the tee, lots of spin off the irons very good for shaping your shots, good stopping power, great around the greens. My only complaint is they sound like a rock off the driver, feel is fine but the sound makes you cringe. Not as noticeable off the irons, again a little harsh sounding but great feel, I play Bridgestone J33 blades and no complaints
  4. theres always the what if in every round, that's why were amateurs, but!!! Even the pros miss-hit, mis-chip, mis-putt, its part of the game. I used to dwell on the missed strokes after a round. As I am now older, I am more calm, and see the up-side a little more. Be happy you hit 12-14 fairways, and 11-18 greens, set your goals the same for the next round and know your putting will improve, or maybe that is the next step in lowering your scores. I used to hit 12 fairways and 12-14 greens per round and was a low single, if you can get your fairways and greens consistently at, or near your last round your well on your way!!
  5. I play Nike one tours and love them, if I could still buy Titleist 100 or Bridgestone Rextar balata's I would, love the soft feel with tons of spin. Picked up 4 dozen of these at auction for $100.00 can't wait for summer to roll around so I can give them a try
  6. I agree with lefty, almost anything will do at least up here in the Pacific Northwest, so cold and wet anyway, just fun to get out and play. ball flights and distances are greatly reduced
  7. anyone have one of these rare birds and want to sell it, would love to get one!!!
  8. I bought one last year after a long 12 year lay off. I would never be without one now, takes all the guess work out of club selection. Best features are how far to carry obstacles, and exact yardage to pin placements
  9. I broke my Callaway FT last year in the winter as well. Hitting those cold rock flite balls are hard on drivers, I only hit irons this time of year
  10. Best Balata Ball ever made Bridgestone Rexstar 100, liquid center, grafite wound, balata cover = Crazy spin, I could suck those babies back 15 feet! The Titleist 100's were as good but not as durable
  11. It all depends what you want out of your game, if your happy with your swing and can maintain it through minimal range time great. Bet for me its 3-4 times at the range, 1-3 rounds per week depending on the weather. I don't like playing off of a double digit cap, I don't enjoy myself, so I work at my game. Just started playing last fall after a 12 year lay off and have it down to 6.9, I am now hitting 10-12 fairways per round and 10-14 greens per round, so I am pretty happy with my ball striking. Now I have to start working on the short game to shave those final few strokes, but they can be the toughest
  12. I only enter 18 hole scores or I'd be scratch, shoot even par on a lot of 9's
  13. Go play Chambers Bay in Washington State, NO CART's, and its a tough walk!!!
  14. I'm 50 and almost always walk, I don't care if its up the side of a mountain. I walk a lot of courses people say are impossible, I just pace myself going up hill. It absolutely amazes me how many young guys cart, see it all the time. I enjoy the stroll, gives me time to contemplate my next shot, or just contemplate life, better yet have a chat with your playing partners. One thing most people don't realize, stay active, fit and alive! Your legs are the bodies 2 biggest blood pumps next to your heart, you loose the use of your legs, your more than one foot closer to the grave! not kidding!
  15. Ebay is great, just make sure you know exactly what you want. Picked up a back up set of Bridegstone Irons exactly the same as the ones I am currently using, bought my original set brand new for $1200.00. bought the back up set for $60.00. Had to change the shafts but no big deal, picked up a new set of NS Pros on Ebay for under $100.00. Just bought a Callaway FT Tour with Diamana Redboard shaft for $140.00. The shaft is worth $250.00 new, can't go too far wrong.
