  2. My mashie is pretty solid out of the junk. Beware if you get one and regrip it, the shaft is oversized.
  3. I look first at brands that have reputations of quality, and sample those brands offerings until I find what works for me. My set is a hodge-podge. Ping driver, cobra woods, cleveland hybrid, bridgestone irons, scratch wedges, and a scotty cameron. Branding is a factor, but I try not to hold much bias between major brands. Although I do find Taylormade's advertising and marketing obnoxious, and am therefore biased against them...slightly.
  4. After a terrible tee shot with a 3 wood which left me with 215 yards in to a (embarrassingly) short par 4, I'm sitting halfway down in some medium rough 215 yards from the green. I pull 5 wood, visualize the shot, and smoke one. It's a tight baby pull fade down the left side right up the pipe, runs up pin high, simple 2 putt par.
  5. My thoughts exactly. He's from the area and I remember walking in to a LGS and seeing a sign posted near the registers explaining how Ryan got a contract with Adams, because it seemed to stir up chatter at the golf shop. I'd imagine it takes a level of restraint most men don't have when that many zeroes are in play.
  6. hitting irons good not hitting woods very well and then vice-versa
  7. haiku thread is back put on those thinking caps, guys golf poetry rocks
  8. Trap draw, punch fade, etc. "skanky little shots"
  9. It all depends on if he can make his 5HE last through the weekend.
  10. You haven't figured out that Brocks is a golf forum instigator yet? He clearly gets off on this type of crap, and he makes it very difficult not to bite when he calls you out directly.
  11. I've been gaming two of these grips on my Scratch 8620's for over a year now. They are still just as tacky as new. As much as these suck when they get wet, they are too good when they are dry for me to even think of swapping them out. And like some people have said, just keep them dry. really not that big of a challenge.
  12. That is just ridiculous. I want to see launch monitor stats on the RBZ stick vs. conventional. This seems like extracurricular R&D; gone wrong.
  13. I clicked "Vagabond" before I read the descriptions. Can't say my vote was accurate. I'm more of a joker/neurotic when it comes down to it.
  14. A few friends and I stash these away when we find them, and pass em off to whoever asks for a ball to reload off the tee, or after a dunk. We call em "bitch balls". I've played a few, and the precept, and srixons I've hit seemed like decent balls.
  15. OP: Buy these! If they were righty I would have already bought them at that price.
  16. HOLY CRAP NO WAY. GOLFING MIRACLES ARE COOL BRO.
  17. Came for the cleavage...and geologically speaking, I think I may have found it. Do they sell commemorative toupee-hats at the gift shop?
  18. There were quite a few big names playing well in crap weather similar to the forecast this year. Fowler, DJ, Mickelson, Garcia, Kim, Stricker, Kaymer, etc.)Hope they packed gore-tex. This should be epic.
  19. I was gonna say Bridgestone, but you are correct, no left handed clubs. What about Titleist? http://www.titleist.com/historical_clubs/category.asp?cat=if Link is to Titleist club archive. About 1/3 of the page sound like what you are looking for.
  20. I played Chambers Bay, where the US Open will be in 2015. Although they are currently doing heavy renovation to the course to make it to the USGA's liking. And I played it prior to that. It ate me alive.
  21. I've got a set of 8620's and an older JLM series 56* that is equivalent to a 1018. Their forged wedges are a bit heavier than the 8620's, but both are on the hefty side. I've been gaming both typed for a while now, and almost all of the above posters are correct in saying that their forged wedges have grooves that get a bit dull after a season or so. The grooves on the 8620's are awesome, bite the ball as well as any Vokey or Jaws wedges I've ever hit. Overall I've been very happy with these wedges, and I plan to keep the 8620's for a while, while the JLM wedge is still performing now, I imagine after another season or so will probably validate a replacement.
