  1. I have a Scotty Cameron Newport Select for sale. I bought this putter from Golf Mart 2 months ago and it has been used on about 10 rounds. I'd call it in 9 out of 10 condition - only some minor sole wear from putting! Plumber neck hosel with a full shaft of offset. Over 30 shape improvements from the previous model. Red cherry dot graphics, CNC milled 303 stainless steel for exceptional feel. Deep Face Mill gives the face a soft feel and sound. Black Mist Finish is free of glare and has a very modern look. Select Weighting in the heel and toe are matched to each shaft length. Square set up at address and high toe reduce pulled putts. Features: 20 gram Weights Includes Head Cover Shown in Photo a well as stock Black Pistolero Grip with the red dancing Scotty Cameron letters Price does NOT include shipping & packing but I'm willing to split that. thanks for looking at my ad Sandwedge

  3. by mint I mean theya re used but in perfect shape with out dings or scratching and they are still for sale
  4. I got to play Pebble Beach today. What a treat. amazing course. Shot a 90 and it was mostly well earned. I doubled the first two holes mostly out of shear nerves and then settled down into bogies and pars with a few other doubles. The course is a amazing. Many holes have zero bail out - straight ocean cliff. I had a kick ass driving day - not one bad drive which helped because the approaches are no joke. Many bunkers have 6-10 foot faces and the greens are the size of postage stamps. the winds can be fierce as well. I thought the most interesting / difficult part of the course was reading the greens. We took a Caddy which I was the best decision we could have made. The breaks are hard to see and visually unbelievable...as in...you swear up and down your going down hill but you are in fact level or even going uphill. Made par on on 17 too which was awesome - stuffed a 7 iron but couldn't convert... great course! I'll try to post some pics Andrew

  9. yea that makes a ton of sense to me. I played yesterday and hit some mega drives where I really felt my arms and and hands were really in front of my body thru and after impact...is that what you mean? It seems to be more about having my hands really in front of my body at all times that really promotes a sweeter contact that's powerful... this is what you mean right?? I mean, at least, it seems to lead to that extended thru impact feeling.
  10. hi all - hoping someone can shed some light on this for me. I have always thought holding your wrist angle stores power through helping to create lag. While I have heard Jack Nicklaus say many times that you can't un- cock your wrists too early with a driver - I tended to believe the other thought that holding wrist angle creates power through lag. Ok - so yesterday I was working at the range before playing and I accidentally discovered that releasing my hinge a little bit as I am unwinding created a much more powerful boring strike and draw. I usually carry the ball the about 245 to 250 and I went and played after this range work yesterday and was hitting drives that seemed to carry about 265 and a couple rolled out to 285 or so on a couple of holes. then on a par 5 that has a creek at 240 - I did my usual lay up with my 19 degree hybrid that up till now when well struck seemed to max out to about 215 -220. Well - yup I hit it to just the edge of the creek. I then had 240 or so left into the green and I hit it again two about 5 yards of the green. so.... whats up? can anyone of you better players verify that you DON'T want to religiously hold your wrist cock through the hole swing and that letting your wrists uncock a little on the down swing is a good thing for power? P.S. I am NOT CASTING - I know what that is and I am NOT doing that. Thanks in advance for your replies Drew
  11. I hit mine between 185 and 190 - sometimes it goes farther due to conditions and sometimes shorter...but that's obvious of course. Definitely an "aim for the middle of the green club" for me. People seem to get very wrapped up about distances - it's totally pointless. Accuracy trumps distance - period. As well, most golf courses have between two and three sets of tee's. Hell, here in Sonoma/Napa many courses have up to 4 or even 5 tee boxes. there is no shame in playing from the front tee's - in fact it sometimes is harder.
  12. Hey Sofingaw, without making any presumptions on the various aspects of your game - I would say no. You don't need to playing a high end ball. If you properly strike a mid range ball like an nxt tour or bridgestone E series ball.... it will spin some for you. By this I mean - hit down on the ball and take a divot AFTER the ball. The end balls do help a lot with partial wedges and also if you WANT to have some spin to work your driver etc etc...but the reality is that until your getting below the 90 or so range...it's probably not the best way to spend your money. If money is no option then go for it.
  13. I recently tired the TP3's to see if I might save some money on them vs proV1s. I hated them. Driver was ok but didn't feel that good. Irons were fine but not wedges....and I didn't like the feel off my putter. I dont loose that many balls in play so I will stick to the tired and true prov1
  14. Hey Gaviao, A couple things I would recommend. First , I would not mess around with those cheaper wedges you posted a link to. What I would do hands down is buy either the cleveland 588, mizuno mp series, Titleist Vokie or even the ping and taylormade wedges - but I give a plus one for the cleveland and titleist wedges. they are they best in my humble 9 handicap opinion. Also, dont let the absence of a cavity back scare you - you will grow into them and they will help your swing and especially short game which is probably the most important part. Almost every time I break 80 it's due to my short game and putting being on fire that day - occasionally I break 80 just from fairways and greens in reg. but usually it's the short game and wedges + putter. I do support getting lessons but I wouldn't get caught up in these famous teachers. **quality instruction trumps famous instruction. also - the used wedges I mention above are all about the same price as the new wedges your looking at - and there is are reason the wedges you are looking at aren't that much $$$ they don't look like quality - no offense. remember this - if you shoot an 85 - you know for sure 18 of those strokes were off a tee another 18 were into the green plus maybe an an extra 3-5 transportation/rescue shots - that's a total of 41 strokes - This means that 34 of those strokes in that round are around or on the green! get good wedges! hope this helps also I would recommend the Tom Watson book - "getting up and down" great read
