  1. @inthehole I am so with ya! I collect WAY too may clubs. I use to switch them up but that made it hard to work on my game. I pretty much play my Miura MC102 irons with matching Gap wedge and Ping BeCu SW or my Mizuno MP67 irons and MPR-12 Wedges. I always use my Callaway Driver and either the Callaway 2 & 4 woods or the 3 & 5 woods. Putter will be a Ping Ti4 WRX or Ping B60 copper putter. Haven't bought a club since last Xmas. That's a long time for me! Bad thing is I don't sell any... keep growing the collection. Will game the Mizuno setup all next year and see if I can get at least one round down to 80.
  2. I saw a commercial the other day for the Callaway GolFit and it had me interested. So after browsing around all day yesterday I ended up stuck between that and the Garmin Approach X40. I was wondering if anyone here had any experience with either unit. It would be neat to tie in the fitness and GPS into one watch device. Both look sleek and don't appear to get in the way when golfing. The Garmin has a few more features and is on sale for $199. The Callaway is $149. Looking like it might be an after Xmas present for myself!
  3. TaylorMade M2 irons

    Thanks @TN94z for the reply. I collect clubs so to have some MP32's kicking around wouldn't be a bad thing. I have a feeling I will just buy them some day. I hear you on the $20... not a big deal... wish you luck with the M1's! * Never sell the 32's... I meant sell the M1's *
  4. TaylorMade M2 irons

    @TN94z I play some MC67's and love them. Was thinking about getting a set of MP32's. I like how they both have the Cut Muscle sections on them. Have you ever swung a MP67? Wondered how similar they were or weren't. I was looking around for face cave-ins of the M2 irons and found some horrible pics/stories. I would NEVER buy any of their irons. You might just want to sell the M1's right when you get them as they will be un-hit and sell for more. Keep on swinging the MP32's, seems like you play them pretty good and they have been loyal for years.

    Thanks Zeph!!

    It looked like he was still playing Nike Wedges. I was able to freeze frame on an iron and all it said was Tiger on it. Had the average blade look to it. Wonder if it was Miura? Mizuno? That combo spoken of earlier? " TGR irons " Fowler tore it up on the front and did great on the back. One of the best rounds I have ever seen on TV!

    Looks like he is hitting a TM driver. Anybody see what he was hitting for irons? I kept pausing and couldn't see a name on them.
  8. No Yardage Markers

    So by no markers do you me absolutely nothing? No sprinkler heads, no blue, white and red stakes along the sides? I have played both type of courses and the ones with marked sprinkler heads are real nice but I have gotten use to looking for the 150 white stake and then I am pretty good at guessing the yardage. I have a rangefinder and GPS unit and totally recommend the range finder. The GPS unit was off on every hole from 5 - 15 yards. I have Bushnell V2 that's about 5 years old now and it has worked great every year. Came with 2 batteries and in Sept the second died. That's pretty good! Will get a new one in the spring. Good luck to you!
  9. What'd You Shoot Today?

    Had an awesome Saturday golfing with my buddies. Might have been the last time. Was about 50* -55* out and that's good for Thanksgiving weekend! 44 front, 43 back for a nice 87! I owned the par 3's that day. 2 birds and 2 pars. 1 was 4 1/2 inches from being a hole in one! Looked good all the way to the hole. Another was 12", 3rd was 4' and last 18'. Driver was drawing nice, long irons were spot on, wedges pretty good and the putter was doing good as well. Tried a 2 wood (the deuce) and a 4 wood in the bag as I left the 3 & 5 at home and I think they might be in there full time. Hope for maybe another round or two before it's too cold.
  10. When is it too cold to golf?

    With the temps in the 30's now in NE it is pretty close to end of season but it looks like Turkey weekend will bring a mid 50* Saturday! Rounding up the buds to see who is down for another round. Got 2 OK's for Sat. Can't wait! Guess it not too cold yet!! Get out and hit em while you still can!
  11. I usually start with one on. For chipping and putting I take it off. Takes away from the feel. Sometimes when my swing is off, I take the glove off for every shot and that seems to help for the rest of the round.
  12. Christmas presents

    I picked the Mevo as I just read the review this morning and it looked pretty cool. I don't live too far away so if you get it and need help, I can help! I don't like GPS' as the one I had was way off. I like rangefinders better. Lessons or a new Driver are always appealing too! Tough choices.... can we get all of them?
  13. How long is your golf commute?

    I have 10 courses within 20 - 30 mins from my house. Not bad. Enough time to sip my coffee and get in the golfing mode. With my son having more interest now I will be looking to join somewhere especially if he really is interested in playing High School Golf.
  14. What are you listening to?

    Looks like we have similar taste. Had Crue blasting on the way to work. Can never get enough of Shout at the Devil. I usually play that first when I am jamming on the drums with my MP3 player and headphones.
