    Instructors near Savannah?

    Thanks so much. It sounds like Mr. Rice is a great instructor.
  2. Can anyone recommend an instructor near Savannah? Thanks.

    PING G25 Irons

    I just got a set of Ping G25 irons a couple of weeks ago. I had bought a set of Mizuno JPX-825's which are great irons but I'm much more consistent with the G25's. Probably because I played Eye 2's for 25 years, I guess I'm just a Ping guy.
  4. In that case I'll be a way uncool golfer. I play Mizuno irons.

    New Irons Here

    Yeah, I need to give them a try. I did swing a MP-53 6 iron at Edwin Watts and have to admit it was pretty easy to hit and felt awesome.. I'm 54 years old now but back in my teens and to mid twenties I was playing Wilson Staff Dynapower Fluid Feel irons. A true forged blade. Still got them.

    New Irons Here

    Dang those irons are beautiful. I hope I can get my swing good enough someday to get back to forged irons like that. Got a set of Mizuno JPX-825's heading my way right now. How forgiving are the MP-59's?
  7. For those that have played both, thoughts? Thanks. Chuck

    Mizuno JPX-825 and JPX-825 Pro

    Thanks guys. I'm kind of leaning towards the Pros because of the forged feel. I don't think I can go wrong with either.
  9. For those who have played both, how would you compare distance and forgiveness of these two? I'm 54 years old. 20 years ago I was probably about a 10 handicap. Good solid fundamentals but because I'm getting older just don't hit it very far anymore. 7 iron about 145 to 150. Really on the fence between these two. Thanks for any input.
  10. I thought I was the only one that didn't get this "gaming" thing.

    Mizuno JPX EZ Forged Irons

    I see you got about as many replies as I did. Wish I could help. Still waiting on some feedback on Titleist AP1 712's vs Mizuno JPX 825's. http://thesandtrap.com/t/69608/titleist-ap1-712-vs-mizuno-jpx-825

    Titleist AP1 712 vs Mizuno JPX-825

    Thanks Jeetz, I appreciate the input. I haven't played much in about 15 years but have always loved the game. My Dad showed me the basics in about 1975 and by 1978 I shot a 77. That's a very long time ago now. Now I'm just hoping to get a decent game of golf back. I just know the Titleist AP1 712 and the Mizuno JPX-825's kind of felt like a whole different level than my Ping G10's. And I love Pings and played Ping Eye 2's for over 20 years. Chuck
  13. I know this has been covered before and links to older threads are welcome. I'm 54 years old and have been mostly out of the game for 10 to 15 years. Pretty good ball striker with average distance. 7 iron about 150 to 155. Averaged in the low 80's when I was playing some. Really trying to get back into the game. Right now I have Ping G10's with AWS regular shafts. Solid irons but I just swung a Titleist AP1 712 and Mizuno JPX-825 six iron at Edwin Watts yesterday and WOW. They both felt awesome. VERY solid and great feel. For those that have experience with either or both under real turf/course conditions (not off plastic mats into a picture of a golf hole)..thoughts? Thanks so much. Chuck

    Grip size question

    I just regripped my entire set with Golf Pride New Decades. .600 rounds. I have always added about 2 layers of masking tape to slightly build up the grips before spiraling on some 3/4 inch wide two sided tape. They feel awesome. Slightly fuller feel but not as fat feeling as a "midsize".
