  1. I play the original eye 2 sw. in 57.5 degrees. Awesome club. You can pick up the original on eBay for 50 bucks. They don’t get much better. I don’t like a 60 even though I keep one on the cart. It only gets used every 5 rounds. The 57.2 degrees for me is perfect all around. It moves through grass like a hot butter knife. The only way I don’t like it is off hardpan. Because of the bounce. Do yourself a favor and if anyone you know has one borrow it and play around with different shots it’s sweet
  2. You can order extensions online and grips. Putting them back won’t be that hard if you have a vice. You can order everything for under 100 bucks at a guess. If you get him cheap grips. Watch the weight on the grips and match what he has golf pride isn’t very heavy. If you add an inch the clubs will feel heavier to him because the swing weight will increase. If it bothers him you can put a heavier grip on.
  3. I told her I saved her money by Choosing wisely!
  4. My wonderful wife suggested that I get new golf clubs. So I threw out a really big number I told her it could cost 5 grand. She looked at me and said honey you’re worth it go get what you want! Well after I picked my jaw up I made an appointment. I went to the Arkansas Golf Center in Conway Arkansas. The fitting was $75 with A $25 tip. And was a full bag fitting. I thought my problem was age and needed lightweight graphite shafts for distance. I liked the ping g710 and the titliest AP3 and mizuno hot metals but was open to anything. After. About 10 shots. mike told me don’t look at this shaft till I tell you just hit it. And we will start narrowing down heads. I hit everything but it ended up as a choice between the Mizuno hot metals and the Ping G410 irons. I hit the Ping irons higher and farther with the same spin on average with the same shaft. So I picked them. I wanted 6 - sand wedge. With a hybrid as my 4 iron. The power spec lofts fit me to allow me to keep my ping eye 2 sand wedge 57.5 degree. And have the lofts go down in good increments from there i wanted a 4 wood because I have trouble hitting off the deck with my 13 degree callaway. I ended up with the ping g410 3 wood lifted up to 16 degrees. And my average carry was at 216 yards. With the matching hybrid carrying around 195. Everything was super solid I was handed the Ping G410 SFT driver and was getting tired but still managed to hit it average carry of 220 -230 I’m good with that I was finally allowed to look at the shaft and he had put me in a 130 gram Steel shaft with a heavy evenflow wood shafts and explained what the computer had shown him I have a 90 mph 3/4 swing averages with an upright swing and a fast tempo he explained the reason I was missing the weaker less heavy shafts was that I never gave the club a chance to catch up and he was right My dispersal pattern was about 1/3 of normal the yellow dot helped I picked g410 SFT driver $399 G420 SFT 3 wood $259 G410 hybrid /22 degrees $219 G410 irons 6-sw $ 787 and a new putter odyssey ten $299 which once shown the tech behind it I felt that I couldn’t miss align it total out the door $2150 For those of you that like to say I’m trying to buy a game Please know 2200 bucks ain’t gonna kill me I live on a golf course with a paid for home am a member of the club own 2 carts and we take golf trips I live 300 yards from the driving range and practice a lot and my 15 handicap is coming down In 34 years of playing golf this is the first time I have ever bought new clubs and the fitting was an eye opener my old clubs were set up completely opposite of what I needed and I can’t wait till they come in I’ve played ping eye 2 irons since I was 17 and love them but I sure am looking forward to my sexy new sticks thanks to my wonderful wife!!!!
  5. I played ping eye 2 irons for 20 years. Had them reshafted at D3 swingweight. I always seemed to know where the club head was. I switched to a set of callaway x12 irons that are supposed to be close in swingweight but with regular flex shafts. The x12 irons feel lighter headed and I lose the clubhead in my swing sometimes. My question is. Should I try just adding lead tape to increase the weight. Or could the lighter shafts be my issue. I hit the callaway irons really well but it’s coming down to a feel issue for me. Any suggestions?
  6. I took my dads old putter and had my nephew mill grooves in the face as well as putting two lines on top line for alignment purposes I sharpies in the red lines and then I added a midsized pistol grip Feel like I can’t miss and it’s really nice to pay respects to the old man who taught me the honor and respect of the game!
  7. Watch Phil Michelson short game video on utube. His cock and pop shot is super easy and repeatable
  8. I shot 84 yesterday. Pretty good for me went and played in the men’s association today and shot 92. Hurrying too much to beat the rain
  9. I am a 26 handicap and today I hit every fairway and green shot 40 on front and 43 on back. For an 83. Beating my handicap by 14 strokes. I had 7 pars on front and 2 double bogeys. For a 4 over.
  10. They were made in 1998. Anika sorenstan won all her big victories as well as men with them. I think average golfers should compare themselves to the women pros because we will never approach the club speeds the men get to. I like watching them swing too my wife calls it boner golf. Lol
  11. I’m a 26 handicap went out this evening and played 9. Chipped in on 1 for birdie then went double double then bogey. Because i hit over all three greens I struck ball pure. Proceeded to go crazy with 5 pars in a row for a 40. My lowest score on this nine previous was 45. Man I didn’t want it to get dark. Lol.
  12. I was all set to bite the bullet and spend whatever it took to get fitted and buy new irons. A friend told me he had some old x12 irons he’d sell me for $75 bucks I grabbed them thinking I’d give them to my nephew. I regriped them and on a whim I took them out to try them. Wow. I hit every shot where I envisioned it. I hit every par 3. They are 3 clubs longer than my old pings with dg s300 shafts. I think it has to be the Memphis 10 shaft that’s a little stiffer than regular it just fits me! My nephew is getting the pings. Does anyone else still play the old callaway x12 or x14 irons?
  13. I can’t be quiet for for hours and I’m not talking about in tees and greens or whenever someone is swinging. All I said to the guy was nice putt or good shot. Lol. Played with him again today and he said 2 words in 4 hours it’s a little weird to me to play with the men’s social group and not me social. Lol We play different tees. His are usually 100 yards in front of mine and he is one of those guys who lags behind in his cart and since he’s going to a different tee he cuts through the rough and doesn’t come near my box. I’ve been playing for 30 years I’d never talk when someone was putting or swinging a club. His problem was anyone talking to him apparently. Today with my handicap I won him 5 bucks and 9 yesterday. With the stroke I get a par is a birdie and birdie is 3 points in our game. I contributed 9 points front and 12 back side lol
  14. I play with a group of mostly senior golfers a couple times a week. For me it’s a social group and I’m working on my game and showing improvement. Last week I had a member of our board come to me and tell me that he appreciates me playing but I talk too much because he had a complaint. The guy who complained did not say a single word for 18 holes and the only things I said to him was stupid stuff like nice shot, good putt, always polite when he swung and putted. Played with him again yesterday and I was miserable because I don’t like being around sour pusses. Anyone have a suggestion on how to deal with this. It’s just one guy who apparently everyone is just silent when they are paired with him. I can’t handle serious golf I think I’d quit first. Lol
  15. Can someone please explain to me why I basically hit my irons dead straight with a little fade but have a banana ball with my driver? I am 50 and have lost distance but the only way I can keep my driver in play is to really strengthen my grip and set up for a hook. I find that setting up with a lower right shoulder at address helps keep me compact and in control my big mistake is too fast a backswing and getting out of position and never catching up. I try to say Sam...Snead in my head and picture his smooth swing. The driver is a face open at contact issues. I have no video so please don’t suggest it I’m technically challenged. Lol. 36degree 7 iron is 140-145. Driver is 220-260 when I catch it good thanks for any advice
