  1. Used Jim Venetos method again yesterday. Shot 78, not the best putting day. Again Driver was about the same, fairway wood and hybrids were slightly longer. Irons were also slightly longer but still experiencing slight fade instead of the draw I was expecting. The 30 to 50 yard wedge shots were sporadic, but this was never my shot even when I was younger and a 2 handicap. This method will produce consistent shots with less “moving parts”. For golfers who have aches, pains or a minor disability (for me that’s multiple knee surgeries) this system will work.
  2. Found Jim Venetos on YouTube and watched several of his videos. As a Senior golfer who has been playing golf for over 60 years, I liked what I saw because it is getting harder and harder to make the moves on the ball that the young player do. I tried his swing today after hitting about 20 practices balls. The results were as follows: My score was 79, shanked two balls with short irons both went in the water so it cost me about 4 of the 79 strokes. Driver was straight and lost no distance. Most iron shots were slightly longer but had a gentle fade rather than the draw I was expecting. Fairway woods and hybrids were straight with a low trajectory. His chipping was similar to what I already do. The short shots 30 to 75 yards were inconsistent some bordering on real bad, others were great. I am going to try this for a few more rounds before I decide if I change to this method. As for the comments on pain due to the setup and left side stationary, I had no issues whatsoever. Trying to figure out how much to turn inward.on the initial alignment was a guessing game. I also noticed that many thought you had to line up far right of the target. I tried to keep my club head lined up at the pin or target I picked . The ball was only slightly offline right or left of line up. For those considering this method, I hope this description of my round will help you. NOTE - This is a modified single swing plane method.
  3. Seems that many responses are the same, it’s ugly, wouldn’t own one, it’s a gimmick but they all have a common thread, they have not hit this club. I have hit the 55 degree and it is a good sand wedge,. From 75 yards and in you can hit it on line and with a little practice you can adjust for the distance. It was much better than my Ping 54 degree and/or my Calloway 60 degree..
  4. The Oncore balls I play with are ELIXR. THEY HIT LIKE A taylormade Tour but lack the putting feel of a low compression ball.
  5. About 4 months ago I replaced my Ping G LST driver 46” and my Beloved Sonartec 3 wood with a GX-7 which is 43” in length. My driver length is about the same but hitting more fairways with GX-7.
  6. I am 70 years old so these may not help GX7 240 can hit as 3 wood about 210 5 wood 200 21 hybrid 180 27 hybrid 165 6 iron 150 7 iron 135 8 iron 125 9 iron 115 PW 105 GW 85 SW 70
  7. I turned 70 recently and just replaced my irons. I have been playing golf for 58 years and have used every shaft and almost every name brand irons made. This time I decided to have clones custom made for my swing speed, using grips that I liked, club length to suit my height and a lie 1 degree flat. Custom clone irons will cost about $40 each,and you can buy only what you want for irons. On Woods and hybrids go to a demo day or a golf store and hit until you find something that works Whether you end up with hybrids or fairway wood will depend on your swing and which ones you are most comfortable with.
  8. I turned 70 recently and just replaced my irons using senior flex graphite shafts. I have been playing golf for 58 years and have used every shaft and almost every name brand irons made. This time I decided to have clones custom made for my swing speed, grips that I liked, club length to suit my height and a lie 1 degree flat. I replaced my 4 and 5 irons with a 27 degree hybrid and my custom clone irons are 6-9 plus P and G. With the senior shafts I hit the ball more consistently and gained some yardage. Custom clone irons will cost about $40 each,and you can buy only what you want for irons.

  10. As a club, the GX7 is the real deal. Just replaced my Ping G LST Driver and my Sonartec SS 3.5 3 wood with this club. My handicap is 9.4 and I just turned 70. On my first competitive round with the GX7, I hit 10 of 12 fairways. On the two I missed hooked one, hit the other through the Fairway. Lost no distance when compared to my Ping G. In a practice round I hit GX7 off the deck from 225 yds out and ball was on the fringe about pin high. In my competitive round, the drive on 3 par 5s was long enough to allow me to hit 5 wood to the green. In summary, the club delivers what it says and the price is $200 versus $400 to $600 for the name brand alternatives.
