  1. Hmmm. I may have misread something the first time I looked at it. I could’ve sworn I saw that they were interchangeable, but looking back at it that doesn’t appear to be the case. My bad.
  2. Fun fact if you want to tinker with your titleist woods: the adapters are interchangeable with their hybrids, however the hybrid adapters change loft in 1° increments instead of .75°
  3. You would have to completely change the club head. Non-adjustable clubs have shafts epoxied into the head. Adjustable clubs have differently design heads. The shaft goes through the head basically, and attaches underneath with a screw. I think it would be a very difficult, nigh on impossible, conversion
  4. I worked on my irons a lot in 2018 and finally got some results late in the year. In 2019 I need to work on my driver and wedges. I would like to add 20-25 yards with the driver while keeping my fairways hit at or above their current average. I don’t have a lot of confidence with my driver, so on the course I rarely swing it very hard. Basically where I’m at right now I can either have distance or fairways, but I can rarely have both. I want both. Plan to put in more time on the range, and hope to get a net at some point. I also need to work with the wedges.
  5. I’ve been looking to get a set of FG-51s. I’m an old school Wilson Staff guy. Typically play FG-17s, but sometimes rotate my Goosenecks into the bag. I haven’t got any persimmons anymore. I need to snag some so I can go all classic sometimes. My usual rounds are played with my old irons and putter but newer driver, woods and hybrids
  6. I have often considered putting the 1 and 2 irons and the 64° wedge in the bag and playing an all blades round sometime, just for the hell of it. Maybe move up to a closer tee box to compensate for losing some distance off the tee. I also struggle with driver pretty severely at times and feel much more confident in my irons, in general. I’m very stubborn though and I want to get better with my driver, so I always end up playing it. All the work I put into my irons this year has finally paid off in the end. Next year I’ll have to turn a similar focus to the big stick.
  7. The Wilson Top Notch was the line from the 50’s. Kind of the predecessor to the Dynapower line. Pictures would definitely help pinpoint the exact model. I don’t know the stats on them, but I assume they would match most of the older Wilson sets. Don’t know the lie angles, just lofts. 2i-20° 3i-23° 4i-26° 5i-30° 6i-34° 7i-38° 8i-42° 9i-46° PW-50°
  8. I just snagged a set of FG-J8s that look to be in beautiful condition, I’ll have them in hand in a few days. I can’t find much info on them though, aside from the fact that they were a European-only release. From the photos they look fairly similar to the FG-17s except they seem to have a lot more muscle and, correspondingly, a thicker sole. Does anyone know anything about these? I’d love to know the loft and lie on these guys. I’d email Wilson but I’ve tried that with other models and unfortunately they don’t seem to have any info available on older equipment. Help me
  9. Same, except mine are old Wilson staffs. I love traditional lofts. Only need 3 wedges. Right now I’ve got an unmatched wedge, however I recently purchased an FG-17 PW head that I need to throw a shaft in. Once I do that it’ll probably go into play for a while. I’ve been considering getting a Cleveland 50° to serve as my PW, which will probably happen eventually. I love my Cleveland 60° and wouldn’t mind getting it a mate
  10. Get yourself an old Wilson 8813. Stepped and fluted shaft. Wonderful feel. Great for fast greens
  11. As a kid I always used to enjoy stopping by the practice range during the Masters and watching those guys crush it. I remember watching a couple of guys drive balls into the net all the way at the end of the range. Not sure the distance, but way farther than I’ll ever be able to hit it. Those guys are good, indeed.
  12. As I have gotten better and more serious about my golf, I’ve been cutting back on the consumption on course. At the start of the year, golf was a fun opportunity to goof off outside with a few beers. Now I’ll typically bring two, but usually only drink one. I’ve gotten better about opting for lower risk plays, especially if I've already played myself into trouble. Where overconfidence can rear up for me is after a string of good shots, I start feeling good about my swing and don’t stay properly focused. Then I seem to let my old swing habits creep back in. I still need
  13. Update: it’s coming along. I perhaps need to be a bit more patient. It’s all about getting rid of the bad holes, staying focused and calm and not rushing myself. I’m absolutely getting better, but occasionally bad habits creep back in and they tend to cost me. Today’s round is a perfect example. I went to the range to warm up, and was striping the ball really well. Then I went to play my round, and everything went wrong. My front 9 was so bad I quit keeping score. I regrouped mentally at the turn, and I started playing the golf that I’m always expecting my
  14. Here’s my anachronistic bag. Fairly modern in the woods, hybrids and wedges, but antique irons and putter. Driver- Callaway Big Bertha Alpha 3W-Titleist 913F 15° 3H-Callaway X2Hot 19° Irons- Wilson Staff FG-17, 3-9 iron (Soon to be joined by PW) SW-Vokey 54° LW-Cleveland RTX 2.0 60° Putter-Wilson Staff 8813 I swap the iron sometimes with a set of 1988 Wilson Staff Goosenecks that are in basically pristine condition. The chrome is beautiful and I hit them fairly well, but they don’t have the same sweet feel as the FG-17s, so these are my pri
