  1. I am bringing this thread back from the dead as we leave this Friday for Ireland. The group is playing Killeen at Killarney, Tralee, Waterville and Ballybunion. On the day off from golf my wife(non golfer) actually wanted to go to Kinsale spend the day shopping and eating, and then head over to Old Head to play a twilight. She saw pictures and actually insisted that she check it out. Here in Florida she likes to ride in cart, have cocktail and enjoy the scenery. Though it is a sin to ride a cart over there, if it means I get to play Old Head, I will make the sacrifice. I am really stok
  2. I am bringing this thread back from the dead. I just spent the morning drinking coffee and exploring the courses. Thanks for putting that together!
  3. I am looking to add either an 18 or 19 Degree Hybrid. Would someone be kind enough to recommend a high launching, yet still fairly heavy and stiff, shaft? Thanks!
  4. Hi All, I am taking my wife to SW Ireland next May. I have been there before with buddies so all we were concerned about was playing golf and drinking. This time around I was thinking about renting a house and inviting another couple. He golf she does not. My plan is to rent two cars so in the morning my buddy and I can go out to play while the two girls go sight see. If we wanted to play Ballybunion, Tralee, Old Head and Waterville, would it make sense to rent a little place in Killarney? Would this give us a good proximity to those courses and allow our wives access to good sig
  5. Hi Guys, Thanks for all of the insight. I think I will venture out for one round outside the Kierland, but am relegated to Kierland for the rest of the trip. They allow you to check the kids into the kids club for free if you play golf or visit the spa. This will allow my wife to chill at the pool while I am on the links. Not a bad deal all things considered. Thanks!
  6. As DB said above you can get the brass shims from Golfworks. However, be careful as the bond between the shim, epoxy and hosel is not as secure as a traditional fitting.
  7. Hi All, I am traveling to Scottsdale with my wife and two little monkeys 9/3-9/10. Yes, I know it will be hot :) My wife agreed to let me play 5 rounds during the week and would like some suggestions. We are at the Four Seasons for two nights and then we move over to the Westin Kierland. The Four Seasons I guess is attached to Troon and the Westin the Kierland Golf Club. If you were in my position, would courses would you play? Any advice would be appreciated as the only courses I have played in the area has been at the Boulders. Thanks!
  8. Has anyone had a chance to try the Maltby CT-256 head yet? I would be curious to hear some feedback. Thanks!
  9. I picked one of these up yesterday and hit 150 balls with it yesterday and this morning. It has completely changed that way I hit a ball. My issue was coming in shallow and stuck and would hit behind the ball quite a bit. After using this and getting the feel of it, I went out and played a few holes. Night and day. Absolutely pure. Love it!
  10. I am thinking about putting graphite shafts into a set of irons. I have a few really stupid questions to ask the board. Can you build a set of irons with graphite shafts at the same length as a set of steel shafted irons? The reason why I have shied away from graphite in the past is they are always longer. I think it is to maintain a similar swingweight as the steel. Can someone give me a few tips on how to build a set with graphite at a steel length. Thanks!
  11. I have made it fairly clear over the past year or so that I love Maltby equipment. Every club in my bag is a Maltby and I really believe that his iron heads are as good as any out there. If I were in your position I would look at some of the Club Paks Maltby sells. They will assemble each set exactly to your specs for $40. Here are a few you might benefit from: http://golfworks.com/product.asp_Q_pn_E_PMA0180 http://golfworks.com/product.asp_Q_pn_E_PMA0066 http://golfworks.com/product.asp_Q_p...5_A_cn_E_10064 I gave my bother in law a set of Maltby Distance Master (the value line
  12. There are some excellent component manufacturers. The companies that Blades4me mentioned are all excellent as well as Snake Eyes from Golfsmith. Over the past 1 1/2 I have come to play exclusively Maltby products as I like his designs and the quality is excellent. I have two of his drivers: I use this driver head in a Motore F1 shaft. http://golfworks.com/product.asp_Q_pn_E_MA0124SW Golfworks has it marked down to $44 which is an absolute steal. I bought mine for $99 a little over a year ago.
  13. I bought a set of Malbty MTF's over a year ago. I seriously doubt I will ever play anything other than Maltby forged irons. The TE version replaced the MTF's earlier this year due to the change in grooves. http://golfworks.com/product.asp_Q_p...099_A_cn_E_671
  14. I think I already know the answer to this question, but here it goes anyway. My wife and I are buying a house so we are trying to skimp and save any way we can. We are staying with friends this coming weekend on Kiawah and I was hoping to play the Ocean Course again. Last year at this time coughing up $250 to play was no biggie, but it is this year. Does anyone know of any discounts to be had? Any sites that book Kiawah at a discount or a certain way to shake the pros hand that would result in a discount :) Any input would be appreciated!
