  1. Gorilla Epoxy. It's not golf epoxy but a lot of people use it, including myself, with no problems
  2. The best thing I've ever done is learn to regrip my own clubs. Totally agree with Iacas.
  3. For me, I started getting more lag when I focused on doing the downswing with my torso and not with my arms. My arms are simply connected to my torso.
  4. Turn your hips until you raise your left heel, as Nicklaus, Palmer and Watson did. Works for me.
  5. Posture has a lot to do with lie angle. Narrower stance vs more open stance. Knees more flexed or less flexed. Torso more upright or less upright. For a long time I thought I needed more upright clubs until an instructor fixed my posture and now I can play with standard lie angles.
  6. When you use every minute of free time to go on-line to read Golf Digest articles
  7. I have used Gorilla epoxy on many clubs with no issues and I have read about many people using Gorilla epoxy on many clubs with no issues. Only thing is it does require a bit more heat than golf epoxy to break down if you ever want to remove the shaft. Gorilla epoxy is not brittle. It is somewhat rubbery.
  8. Are the two drivers the same shaft length? My guess is that one has a longer shaft than the other.
  9. Seems to me Just trim 1 inch off the butt end of every club and you'll be back to standard specifications
  10. One instructor noticed that when I stand naturally my shoulders are slightly open to the target. This contributed to pulled shots. She told me it is the shoulders that should be square to the target, not the feet. Now I take my address position with my right foot slightly back.
  11. For me, my Cleveland Chipper using a putting stroke is a magical club for short chips around the green
  12. It's just a Gap Wedge. I don't think I need exact shaft specifications. If it were a 6, 7 or 8 iron I would be more cautious.
  13. Just wanted to share. I had a wedge head with a 0.370 hosel and a True Temper XP 95 R300 shaft (wedge length). I measured the tip of the 0.355 shaft and after about an inch it becomes 0.370 parallel. So I just trimmed one inch off the tip and voila I now had a 0.370 shaft. I suppose that trimming one inch off the tip basically made the shaft "stiff" instead of "regular", but that's all right because it will go into a wedge. I epoxied the shaft into the head with no problem. I'm not saying all 0.355 shafts have this geometry, but for what it's worth these TT XP 95 shafts do have a true 0.370 parallel section above the taper. I don't feel comfortable using shims. This solution worked well for me.
  14. I f you decide to get a 48 specialty wedge you may want to replace the shaft so it matches your other irons.
  15. Lie angle is totally dependent on POSTURE. If you stand very upright, you need a certain lie angle in your club, but if you have a very open stance or if you bend your knees a lot, then you need a different lie angle. I suggest you first fix your posture before you modify your clubs. My experience.
  16. The shaft is most important. I'm 62 years old, 5'9", average build. I use True Temper XP 95 R300. A light steel shaft that feels soft and launches high. Very popular.
  17. I wrote to True Temper some years ago regrading the same issue and they told me it was basically the same shaft.
  18. Maybe all you need is new shafts more suited to your strength and swing. In my experience, shafts are 50% of a club
  19. In the backswing I think of my connected torso-arms going back, and in the downswing I think of my connected torso-arms going down. My hips move too, especially in the downswing, but I don't think about them. 80% of the time when my swing is not working it is because my torso and my arms are not connected (arms move independently). The other 20% of the time I am swaying on the backswing.
  20. I prefer 9 holes walking than 18 holes in a cart. For me, walking is 50% the joy of golf. That's just me.
  21. Great video. But I noticed a machete in the background. Wonder what a club builder does with a machete.
  22. I'm 62 years old and I only play for fun. I do not play tournaments. I do not bet. I play with only 11 clubs because I like to keep things simple. I took out 3 Wood and 4 and 5 iron. My last two rounds I shot 85 and 86 and I'm perfectly happy with that. I JUST LOVE THE BEAUTY OF MY BAG WITH 11 CLUBS.
  23. I play Titleist 718 AP2 with XP 95 R300 shafts. I love these shafts and I could probably play several different heads just as well as long as they are similar in design. For example, with my XP 95 shafts I could probably play just as well Mizuno JPX 919 Forged, Ping i210, Callaway Apex, and such. But I could NOT play blades or musclebacks even fitted with XP 95s.
