    Srixon Golf Balls

    Baby steps, Q Star for now. I've played a few rounds with QST but that was before I started taking lessons.

    Srixon Golf Balls

    I just bought some Q-Stars. Haven't played them yet but at my home course you need more spin around the green for better control so I'm starting to up my ball game..lol

    Golf Rangefinder Recommendation

    This is me too. I have a Garmin Fenix 3HR that shows front/middle/back for holes and am getting my Garmin Approaches S60 today which has more detail. I totally get how @iacasuses his and many of my friends do too in a similar fashion. I’m also just not good enough to merit perfect distances for shots so the general distances with a GPS device is perfect for me.

    What are Your 2018 Golf Goals?

    So let’s review my goals... 1) I was fitted for a complete Cleveland set from driver down to putter..check 2) I’ve only had one lesson but am taking more later in October..I guess check..lol 3) I’m joining a private country club so that shows how much I’ve played and enjoyed myself this year. I’ve yet to break 100 but I still enjoy myself every time out there. 4) my boy is 10 and he’s probably been my most frequent playing partner. He’s all in on ice hockey but we still play more than most kids so that makes me happy that he’s building a love for a game that can be played for life. All in all an outstanding 2018!

    Are you a brand snob?

    I voted ehhhh. I have all new Cleveland gear from driver to putter and all in between. I know it’s not a big 4 brand but I know it’s as good as any but also not available at Walmart. Not sure where that brand fits in this discussion quite honestly.

    Good thing Russell Knox is good at golf...

    He’s all man when it comes to putting..wow did he finish like a champ!
  8. Good point mentioning your age. I’m 46 (47 later this year). You just have to trust in the fitting process and go with what works best for you in the real world.
  9. Graphite player here. I went and got fitted by a pro and my swing speed along with balls hit at the range showed the graphite was right for me. I’m rocking 4-PW,AW,SW & LW in graphite with my Cleveland CBX’s. As that Snickers commercial says..”no regerts”
  10. Haha..I’m a Jets fan too. Post a picture of it.
  11. As long as you're having fun it's your game. I shot a 135 at my buddies golf course where 2 of the other guys shot a 98 and 99. The member shot something in the low to mid 80's (forget his score). I had a blast even though I'm by far the worst among my friends. I've also been playing a fraction of the time compared to them. Just have fun with your friends and don't take this too seriously. That's what I'm telling myself so far and it's working.

    Cleveland HB Launcher Irons

    I haven’t tried them yet due to the awful weather pattern we’ve been in but I bought Srixon Q balls based on recommendations here. Hopefully they work out for me.
  13. So I went with the Cleveland even though I think the Ping is probably a better bag. The Cleveland was considerably cheaper and my OCD kicked in too as I have all Cleveland clubs now and I wanted it all to match..lol

    Cleveland HB Launcher Irons

    My irons come in at the end of next week. I’m waiting on 54 and 58 degree wedges too. I purchased today a 9 degree driver, 3W, 3H and a 35” blade putter with an oversized grip that felt great. Debating getting the 4 and 5 hybrid as that overlaps with my irons so I’ll wait for now.
