  1. Currently looking at getting a new driver shaft with a high launch, low spin profile and deciding between the Fubuki K vs. GD Tour AD-DI6. My swing speed averages at 103-104 mph and my miss is a low, left hook. I currently have the stock Aldila RIPD NV 60s in a Razr Fit and find it to be a bit too whippy. Any advice on differentiating between the two? TIA.

    Best ball for the $

    As a lot have said, I love the E6 (tried the E5 too, but preferred the E6) when it comes to buying a new ball. They are relatively inexpensive and fly straight. However, if you're just starting out and losing more than 2-3 balls per round, I'd highly recommend trying knetgolf.com and buying used balls in bulk and for very cheap. I prefer the recycled balls rather than the refinished ones. Also, I like these guys much better than lostgolfballs.com. I had a very bad experience with them.

    Where to start for new clubs

    I recently got fitted for a new set of irons, but as most have said, I'd recommend going to your local pro shop (driving range, club, or public course). For the most part, they will almost always be able to beat the MSRP. If they absolutely won't budge on price, I'd suggest going elsewhere. As far as the fitting goes, most places will have you get started with the 6i as a healthy middle ground to gauge what you'll need. However, especially for some of the progressive sets like the MP-H4, you will want to hit with some of the scoring irons and longer irons as well. Also, I'd much rather prefer hitting balls on a range than into a simulator to get an idea of how the club feels. All that being said, personally, I went with the Mizuno MP-H4s. These clubs felt great to me and looked great at address. Also, they give me room to grow into as I get better. I also tried all the current Callaways (hated them all, which was interesting considering I came from a Callaway set), Titleist AP1s, and Ping G20s. The process started out with what I liked and felt comfortable with, got measured for my height and wrist to floor, then got fitted (hit balls outside with a Mizuno Shaft Optimizer) for my optimal shaft and lie angle.
  4. I would imagine that it wouldn't write very well even if it survived a tee shot after being stuck in the ground over and over.
  5. I've used the GolfShot app on my iPhone all season, and it's been great. It's been very accurate for yardages and keeping track of my stats. I can appreciate the romanticism behind sticking with pencil and scorecards, but I don't think there is a more efficient way of keeping track of my HCP, GIRs, sand saves, etc. To each their own...

    Protocol when finding clubs on course.

    I've actually left my PW once, and the group behind rode ahead to us to check if it was mine. I was very grateful. I've also found someone's wedge once, and as someone had mentioned, I left it near the exit section of the green.

    How often do you clean your clubs?

    haha, after reading this thread I cleaned my clubs last night. I usually clean them every other round or so. I also use dishwasher soap and warm water, but I also use a magic eraser for some of the grass stains. I've never actually heard of cleaning the grips before. I'll give that a try too next time around.

    Carts or Legs?

    This is definitely an interesting thread. As much as I'd prefer to walk, I've been riding more lately. I've realized that until I get more consistent with my ball flight (i.e. lower my hcp), I'll ride the more difficult courses I play, especially during peak hours. I do this so I don't hold up any groups behind me trying to find my ball should it be in the deeper rough. There's a course nearby that is a relatively easy par 65 that I will always walk. Also, I'll try to check the course layout before deciding whether to walk or ride to see if there are any significantly longer walks to the next hole.
  10. Agreed. I've only really picked up golf in the last 2 years, so I may not be able to provide the same perspective. But, I play because I enjoy the nice walk, catching up with my friends, all the while having the goal of being relatively competitive one day in my club. Especially with the recent addition to our family, it's been great to be able to step away for a round with some guys.
  11. I've hit my PW 145 before. It was super thin though...
