  1. This is a set of the Mizuno MP-58 irons. 5 iron through PW. Six clubs total. The shafts are soft step R flex True Temper Dynamic Gold SL. The grips are Winn Xi7 standard size. Lie and length of the clubs are standard Mizuno. I bought these a little over a year ago so they only have one season on them. They are in very good condition with just a little bag chatter. The PW does have a nick in the sole. Note I bought these irons at Miles of Golf in Ypsilanti. They are not the fakes being sold on eBay. These are the real deal. I'll include the original receipt with the sale. The irons o
  2. I'm flying out this weekend to the BCS National Championship game in Glendale, AZ. We'll be staying in Tempe. We're looking to play a round while out there. Can you recommend a course with a reasonable price? We'll also need to rent clubs. If you know of a local pro shop that rents that would be great. I know courses usually have sets but my experience is that they're generally pretty poor. Thanks!
  3. Agreed. Most people have no idea what to look for even if they see a video of their swing. I visit the range probably 1-2 times per week. I rarely see anyone filming. I've been taking video of myself pretty consistently for about three years now. I love it. I still do struggle sometimes with what I'm looking at but I enjoy it.
  4. Thanks! I finally came across that. Surprised they don't put that on the label
  5. I bought some high density lead tape from Golfsmith. It's 1/2" version. I don't have a scale at home and am trying to determine how many grams 1" is equal to. I've searched on line and have seen a variety of responses. Anyone here know?
  6. That's awesome that you caddy there. The staff was great. I would love to play again with a caddy. Due to the event, we all had carts. Couple of oddities I noticed was how they have no signs for what hole you're on. The cart paths didn't exactly lead to the next whole sometimes. Also noticed they had no trash cans on any of the holes. Not a complaint, just and oddity. I had a blast. I think if you go in having the mind set that you're probably not going to shoot better than your handicap, you'll have a good time. After I parred the first whole, I thought about quitting. How could it get any
  7. I played I think a Top Flite a couple weeks back at twilight since I was having trouble seeing the ball. Worked great. I still keep it in my bag.
  8. We certainly didn't win. They had kind of a weird scoring system that I couldn't quite follow. We didn't have a single birdie in the group. I play at a 14 hcp and one of my other partners is about an 8. The other two guys were 20+. I drove the ball pretty well but struggled with my irons. I shot a 93 using the format above. I really only had one melt down putting wise on #18.
  9. I had the opportunity to play Oakland Hills South course yesterday. I was obviously really excited to be playing such a legendary course. The round was a fund raiser for the Detroit YMCA. The format as a shotgun start and a modified best ball. We'd all tee off and the pick the best drive and then play our own ball out from there. Two best scores were totaled. My impressions of the course The condition of the course was spectacular. Very green and the sand was very white. You could easily tell it was a private course as it did not show the typical wear this late in the season. T
  10. You can use a driver to get out of a bunker but it's a heck of a lot easier with a SW. A SW can be any wedge loft that you feel comfortable. I'd like at a 54* or 56* with a lot of bounce.
  11. Side note, my screen has gotten pretty scratched up from lose items in my pocket. I asked Callaway how much it would cost to replace the glass and they said the currently don't offer that but would replace the unit for $200.
  12. I use soft stepped DG SL R shafts in my irons. I plan on pulling the shafts in my Vokeys and going to a DG R300 or the SLs.
  13. Interesting in that I've been considering doing the exact same thing.
  14. I know this happens all the time but we had a teenager who thought it would be funny to take his car and do donuts on the green. Well during his "fun", his car got stuck and he had to walk home. Of course when the police came, they were easily able to track down the culprit. $20,000 in damages his parents had to pay. Ouch!!!!
  15. If he hits dead right and still slices, he got the face wide open at impact (causing the ball to start right) and his swing path may be on plane or over the top (causing ball to curve right). Hard to say on swing path without seeing his ball flight. Could be that he's on plane but just with an open face. Lots of things can cause this. Does he have a left arm chicken wing? Is his head moving toward the target on his downswing? Too weak of a grip?
  16. Great!!! Thanks for the update. I'll check it out.
  17. That's not what I was implying but looking back I supposed I did a poor job of explaining it. I was trying to say that the switch to blades did not hurt my handicap. My drop in handicap can be directly attributed to a better short game this year.
  18. I agree with tim31x. No club is going to keep you from hitting shanks or throwing the club in the ground on your downswing. I can personally attest to that. I moved from Cleveland CG Golds to MP 58s this year. I've been playing with them since March. One of my playing partners asked me why I moved to "blades". I said my misses have nothing to do with what club I'm swinging. I have a tendency to fall towards the ball during the downswing. This causes a shank to rise it's ugly head every now and then. I can shank just as easy with my GI club as with my blades. I've been thinking about starti
  19. Sounds like you're more in the G15 category.
  20. I have to say I love when someone posts a question and people don't actually try and answer their question. If the man wants to try it, let him try it. Back to the OP, I seem to recall that in a set not all the clubs were U grooves anyway. Haven't the longer irons always been V grooves. This could make your modifications a little more manageable. I would also think forged irons would be easier to change. I'd suggest taking an old club and trying it first. Then take it to course and see if you can tell the difference.
  21. Not sure if this will work but you could try using a U groove file on a V groove club. I have a U/V file to sharpen my wedges. Seems like a lot of work convert from a V to a U. Not sure you'd be able to tell the difference anyway.
  22. I picked up two Adams Pro Gold hybrids and have really liked them. Especially in the Ozik shaft. You can find good deals on them now since they're last year's model.
  23. Wow you guys are cheap! It's the same as a door man hailing a cab for you or opening the door. Some courses provide that as part of there "service". There's nothing wrong with telling them you're ok and don't need a wipe down. I also see no issue with them trying to do it.
