  1. Titleist 975D 9.5* loft ProForce Gold 65 Shaft Grip is in good condition, standard size. Paint is bad on head, I was considering re-painting and would be willing to do so for the buyer in the color of their choice for an extra $5-10 depending on price of paint. There are no dents or dings though and the club works just as it should. Reason for selling: I would like to get something slightly more forgiving. $45 shipped - Offers and trades considered.
  2. I have a nice R11 T3 wood for sale. I am selling to make room in my bag for a driver (need to learn how to hit one sooner or later) Blur 70g Stiff Flex Shaft Everything Stock and Standard Small paint chip near hosel and a couple scratches at the top of face. Overall it is in great shape from grip to head. Comes with headcover and tool. $175.00 + actual shipping cost I accept paypal only. Message me with any questions, thanks!
  3. 2011 WGC Bridgestone Invitational

    I think Tiger will play okay. It is a good field, so I doubt he will contend but will have a decent showing. Some good, some bad, ultimately I believe he will be around 15th. I like Jason Day to win, he has been in contention enough that some of the nerves should be gone or at least fading.
  4. So I broke down and got an R11 T3 wood '14*' which arrived today (stock blur 70 stiff). I played 18 after work with it today and it was impressive. It went roughly 10-15 yards farther than my 15* superfast 3 wood, but man is it accurate. The feel is more sturdy and has a nice sound off the face. Being able to hit a slight fade in addition to a draw is a huge plus. I attacked narrow par 4s with no problems which was awesome. I hit more fairways in todays round than the last 2-3 rounds. The ball flight is nice and I was complimented on the distance which is always cool (the accuracy is way cooler to me). I shot a +1 37 on the back for my best 9 at my new home course. I have not had a driver all season and now I don't feel like I am sacrificing anything. If you get the chance, check it out. I had a one hole adjustment period (the only fairway I missed) so dont be scared off by the looks. The white looks very nice especially in the bright sun. I will say I am not a huge fan of the black face, I am sure it will look horrible pretty quick, not a big deal though. All in all I would rate the club a solid 4.5/5: Appearance: 4/5 Sound: 4/5 Accuracy: 5/5 Distance: 5/5 Feel: 4/5 I will plan to report back if any 'honeymoon' feelings end, haha.
  5. Couldn't agree with you more. When I stopped doing that I put the ball closer to the pin and eliminated the risk. Of late I have been taking a lot of risks trying to find what holes are okay to be aggressive with and which must be played in a "boring" fashion. This has me playing from many more bunkers and attempting shots I wouldnt normally have to take. It can be frustrating because I am scoring anywhere from 5-8 strokes (penalties and punch outs add up quickly haha) higher per round, but I try to just keep myself focused on developing some feel in my game.
  6. My new VRs :)

    Thanks again guys, I will see about pics after I play this afternoon (they are quite dirty right now).
  7. My new VRs :)

    i removed the old paint with acetone and my pocket knife, it removes easy with something pointed. I did a set of the old vrs as well and they came out even better. The blades are easiest. Good luck.
  8. Anyone play a 3+ wood? I am leaning toward a superfast 2.0, Nike vr or new vr pro. Anything else tht should stand out? Thanks!
  9. My new VRs :)

    yeah i hear ya, buying the latest and greatest is cool but painful. I wish they made a 13 or 13.5 in the original superfast. Can many pro shops bend a wood?
  10. My new VRs :)

    Is that a private deal, or is there more than one of said 3+ woods available? If so I am thinking you need to pm me about it I am, however, leaning toward an R11 or superfast 2.0 T3 wood. My 3w is stupid easy to hit any way you want to, but both are a bit pricey. Anyone have experience with the R9 woods?, this might be a better option for me.
  11. If you really like what you have, re-shafting is the way to go.
  12. My new VRs :)

    I'll get some close ups later, but to be honest they look a little better from 5 feet haha. I plan to redo a couple due to poor paint quality (old). I actually used my girlfriends fingernail polishes, some of the metalic colors look really cool. You can buy them for a $1 a piece at wal-mart too. I suggest you go with a lady friend though or you may get a few looks haha. Thanks for the compliments though, I love them. They feel very nice and are the most consistent clubs I have hit.
