  1. I just ordered an Adidas AG Tour Pro stand bag. http://www.golfsmith.com/product/30038523/adidas-ag-tour-stand-bag
  2. I like my Ecco Street's. They are really comfortable. But I played in a round last week and it rained for about 6 holes. And my feet were wet by the mid point. I'm going to use them only for dry conditions moving forward.
  3. I would keep working on your driver. A few things you may try follow... I think one of the simplest things to hitting big drives for me is ball placement and tee height. Try teeing it up so that you pick the ball off the tee with an ascending blow. I see guys who struggle with their driver teeing the ball far too low. Also, maybe choke down on the driver an inch+/- since you feel the club length is an issu .... And try standing closer to the ball - forcing your club path inside/inside. With the driver, I also like to aim just right of my target with my feet and shoulders... And swing ins
  4. I went with the KBS C-Taper stiff, and black Winn Lite grips. I'm hitting the ball further and more pure than my DCI 762's with Dynamic Gold S300.
  5. I just picked up my MP59's yesterday and went to the range today. They are such sweet sticks. If anyone it's looking at new irons, I highly recommend them!
  6. Thanks for the responses guys. I obviously miss played the shot and screwed up.
  7. Agreed. I see Web Simpson do this 'air putt' along the line. It is a solid tactic to feel the slope with your feet, and get an idea of how the ball would run along that line.
  8. I had this occur during a recent round and would like to hear input on what you believe the ruling should have been. Par 3 - OB down the right hand side of the hole. The hole is 175 up hill - and plays more like 200. The white OB stakes run down the right side of the hole for about 30 to 40 yards. Then there is a chain link fence which starts and protects an area where the course stores equipment. Like a small barn. The fence that runs along this barn is OB if you fall on the right side of the fence. But if your shot comes to rest on the left side of the fence - you are in bounds. I hit
  9. Mini, I've never heard of the Benross club mfg. But maybe that's a European brand? I'm here in Socal.
  10. Ping S56's Sole Width 18mm Toe Height 55mm Heel to Toe 71mm Topline 7mm MP-53's Sole Width 19mm Toe Height 54mm Heel to Toe 73mm Topline 7mm I don't have the specs on the MP-59's. But they looked identical at address to me.
  11. Last week I posted about my interest in the Titleist AP2's. Well today I went to a club fitter who started me out by focusing on fitting me for the correct shaft, then I hit several manufacturers clubs before dialing into the proper set. I hit the following clubs... Titleist AP2, 710's (they had the Dynamic Gold S300) Mizuno MP-53 Mizuno MP-59 Ping S56's Callaway RAZRX Forged Irons To my surprise, the AP2's were nowhere near my favorite clubs based on feel, and smash factor. Which I was surprised as I currently play 762's with S300 shafts. So I thought going into this fitting I would gravi
  12. The concern I have is the shop I go to is fairly small. So I'm not sure how much inventory, or how long they will have the 710's. I live in Newport Beach... So season is year around. I guess waiting another month or so is probably best. Indeed trying both would be preferred.
  13. I've been playing with my DCI 762's since the early 2000's. I really like them, but know that today's technology is far superior. So I'm eyeing a set of AP2's. Here is the question... Should I wait for a month+ until the new 2012 AP2/712 hit the retail stores? Or go ahead and buy the current 2011 AP2/710 now? I talked to the pro at the local shop today and he said the 712's will have an extra tungsten weight in the sole but are very similar to the 710's. What would you guys do? Also, any comments from users of the AP/710's? Would love to hear your reviews.
