  1. The handicap is a generic number I inputted cause I honestly don't know what mine is! There are plenty of stores but rarely do any of them have left-handed clubs in stock to try out, and if they do it will be only one brand that they just so happen to have. Basically no assortment to try out and/or demo on the simulator. A few places have told me that they cannot order different lefty sets for me to "try out" in the store, so basically I have to buy something based on reviews and then hope like hell that I fall in love with them. Golfsmith has the like 30 day play guarantee but it's
  2. When reading discussions of the top drivers and irons, it seems as though Nike is rarely mentioned. Now while I understand certain PGA tour guys use the equipment cause they are paid nicely to do so, but it reality is Nike just not that great when it comes to golf clubs? I have Nike Ignite irons and have just been toying with the idea of buying new irons, but haven't really found much at all of people recommending the Nike VRS Covert Irons, nor can I even find anyone selling Nike Irons in left-handed anymore! I tend to be a "brand *****" so I get stuck on a brand of clothes, shoes, golf equ
  3. I currently have Nike Ignite irons that I've had for a few years. They were the set I bought when I first got into golf and bought them straight off the shelf since they were what I could find in stock in left-handed. Being new tot he sport at that time I had no idea about having them fitted. I bought them straight off the shelf and learned to play with them. Now that I'm more experienced and at least know what I'm doing with them, and decided that golf is something I enjoy...can I take these irons in and now have them fitted since I'm used to them and have a decent swing down, OR since th
  4. I didn't buy, I actually returned my Nike Method putter I just bought and used the money to buy my wife some pearl earrings! It's winter, so I wont need the new putter anytime soon anyways! And no I'm not in the dog house, thus prompting the jewelry purchase! LOL!
  5. I'm kinda intrigued by this driver and all the "gadgets" on it to adjust things, but I'm a little hesitant. If you get fitted when you buy it and everything is adjusted to your swing, then isn't the "gadgets" essentially useless from that point forward?? It's almost as if I'd be paying more for the adjustability which will be used once and really never messed with a whole lot! I'm assuming the adjustability is why it's a little more expensive than say the Nike VRS Covert, I'm just curious if the extra price is worth a 1 time adjustability??
  6. I play left handed and due to my baseball days I'm only comfortable if I wear gloves on both hands. It's hard to find golf gloves for both hands so I've used batting gloves.
  7. I have a wedge that is 54 degree (I think)...but obviously there are several other degrees that you can buy. Is there certain situations, distances, or what that will require one wedge over the other??
  8. I know I'm the minority but I play left-handed and the locations around me hardly ever have any clubs in left handed. Dicks is usually the main place I can walk in and they have left handed clubs.
  9. So does this mean they'll start selling their inventory for pennies-on-the-dollar to try and sale everything in stores?
  10. So I watched the Long Drive Competition last night on Golf Channel in between the World Series and these guys are crushing it 400+ yards. I went to the website of the drivers a lot of them use called "Krank Golf Clubs". If you can hit it that freaking far with one of these drivers why are they essentially unheard of in the golfing world...are they junk, illegal, or what?? I see that they're expensive as heck but I've never heard a word about these had I not watched the show last night.
  11. I honestly didn't see or feel much of any difference. The price was the biggest difference! LOL! The 2012's was on sale at Dicks for like $30 but when I went back they had sold them all, so I was stuck paying for the 2013's!
  12. I played a couple weeks ago with a box of 2012 ProV1x's and absolutely loved them! I was used to playing cheapos so it was night and day difference. I played this weekend with 2013's edition. I was lucky enough not to lose a ball for several holes, but it just didn't feel the same at all off the driver. It didn't feel like I was "crushing" it and didn't feel as soft. On probably the 9th hole or so, I put the ball back in the box and got one out of a different sleeve and it suddenly felt 100% better and what I was used to feeling. Have you guys ever had 1-2 balls out of a box feel "dead"
  13. This past weekend I played at a golf course that has 3 separate 9-Hole Courses. I only had time to play 9 holes and shot a 5-over on a Par 36 course. With that being said, does that at all equate to estimating that I would have shot 10-over on a full 18 holes?
  14. I live in Las Colinas...is this course any good?? I found it online and it looks cool with the holes designed to mimick famous courses but some of the older reviews online say it's a dump; however, it's pretty pricey to be a "dump".
  15. MLB: Yankees (been a RedSox fan for years even though I live in Dallas, TX) NFL: Ravens (because they used to have murderer who praised god all the time) Eagles (they have the dog killer and by far the worst fans in the NFL) Cowboys (they have the dumbest GM, most overrated QB, and a fan base that supports their mediocrity) NBA: Lakers, Heat, Thunder (I'm a Mavs fan...gotta respect a non-flashy, "hey look at me", "I'm here for the money" type of player like Dirk) NCAAF: Texas Longhorn (I went to Texas A&M...I; even hate the color orange!)
