  1. So I am 21 years old, and never had a set of my own clubs, I’ve always used clubs that have been passed download. Currently I am using a set of Ping Eyes from 82 and a TaylorMade Ti Bubble driver from 96. What clubs should I look at? I’m not very good, but when I make solid contact I can carry the ball well, so I would like something that’s pretty forgiving. I’ve been thinking 5-Pw, maybe a Gw, 3 wood and 5 wood, and a driver. Please tell me what to look for and what to avoid, I’m dealing with about a $1200 budget. Any advice would be great
  2. I was curious how many people leave their clubs in the car all season long. It gets pretty hot up here in the summer and I don't like leaving my clubs in my car because I am always worried someone will steal them and I wonder the effects of the heat on the glue, grips and any other issues that might arise from sitting in the car in the hot summer months. When we pulled into the hotel at Myrtle Beach and unloaded our clubs a few older guys asked why we were bringing in our bags. I said two reasons, 1 - I don't want our clubs stolen, would ruin our vacation and 2 - I don't think the heat/cold/moisture of sitting in the car is good for the clubs and bag. If anyone knows of any adverse effects of them sitting in the heat/cold/moisture, please chime in.
  3. My shoulder isn't 100% and it's going to rain, but f*** it I'm going golfing tomorrow.

  4. I bought a set of these just for the heck of it on eBay about a year ago, and I have no idea what they are. Looking them up online I can't find a picture or anything about them. Anyone what what they are or when they or made?
  5. Q. How are clubs and grips fitted for the individual golfer?

    Opinions on these wedges??>
  7. We are renting a house in Ireland and will play golf for 2 weeks next July. We will then take a cruise ship from Oslo to St Petersburg. What is best way (reasonably priced) to ship clubs from Ireland to Florida
  8. Hey guys, I noticed there wasn't a Mid-Atlantic club here so I went ahead and started one. I invited a handful of guys (@RandallT, @DaveP043, @GolfLug, @jsgolfer) to join already just off the top of my head, but feel free to tag anyone from the area who should be in this group. We can use this topic just for general discussions.

    Merit golf clubs

    I just received these clubs for a Christmas gift and I can't find any information about them. I know that Merit is no longer in busniss but not much else. The club set is single length, 2 tru pw, sw and 60. Anyone know age, retail cost when new, today's value, any history? Thanks for anything you might have.
  10. Hey everybody my name is Jay and I wanted to post some info on a new high end club company that I'm working with. The company is called Sub 70 and will produce ultra high end, custom built, direct to consumer golf equipment. Everyone involved with the project loves golf and we wanted to create a golf company, and golf clubs, that other passionate golfers would be excited about. We want the products and company reputation to sell itself. We're focused on the technology + the brand, and we won't be pumping releases out every year in order to chase spent advertising dollars. We're really excited about it and I'd be happy to answer any questions you guys have. A few quick notes that are relevant...We are not under the same ownership/management as the Sub 70 clothing line that some of you may be aware of. We own the trademark and will be focusing on providing premium, custom fit, factory direct golf equipment. We're aiming for a Spring 2018 launch and should have a full product line at that time. R&D + other business planning started in late 2016. We've been working with third party testing services to make sure the clubs perform as good or better than other products on the market. Very small final adjustments are being made but everything will go into full production soon.Our club making facility is located in Sycamore, Illinois...about 60 miles west of Chicago. Everything will be built when ordered and we can conduct fittings at the facility.Pricing will be very affordable. I can't give any specifics yet, but you're probably looking at a minimum of a 30-40% discount compared to major brand iron sets. Stock iron shafts will be either KBS or DG and we'll have any aftermarket shafts you want. On top of that, we'll have a very liberal warranty/return policy.We're able to offer this pricing due to low marketing and sales expenses, partnerships with other golf product companies, and a factory direct model which avoids any distribution or retail expenses.One example of a current partnership is True Temper. TT has created three unique Sub 70 ProjectX graphite shafts for our drivers and fairway woods. These are premium shafts that the experts at ProjectX designed with complete creative control. We simply asked them to create what they think is the ideal low, mid and high launch shaft. These will be "stock" shafts for the woods, but again, and aftermarket shafts will be available as well.Our website is being worked on now. Our facebook, twitter and instagram are all live though. We also just launched a podcast that will cover a wide variety of golf topics. We will not be discussing Sub 70 there, but it's another outlet for some creative golf content and discussion. We've already conducted an interview with Mark Calcavecchia, which will be published soon, and have other interviews with Bobby Clampett, Adam Beach (Not allowed because of spam) and Shaun Micheel scheduled. Last but not least, attached is a photo of the MB iron. The cavity back iron will look similar and they'll have uniform lofts for combo iron sets. If you have any questions let me know. Thanks.
  11. When we upgraded the site to IPS 4.2 a few weeks ago, it brought with it a number of great changes and new features. One of those was the introduction of "clubs." Clubs are basically sub-sections of the site that groups of people can form and control. A regular member can create a club, invite people to join, and post their own images in their own galleries, have their own topics and discussions, etc. Creators of clubs can assign leadership roles, can limit the club to privately invited members or make them public, and many other things. They're uniquely customizable and controllable, by regular members. Clubs can be created for regional groups of people who want to organize outings (even those like the Newport Cup). Clubs can be organized for some off-topic things like my Apple Fans club to discuss the iPhone, Mac, etc. Clubs can be organized for fans of particular equipment makers. You could start a club for your fantasy football league. The possibilities are endless, and I would ask only that you carefully consider the type of club you want to create. Make it too narrow and it's not going to be very popular (which in some cases could be okay), and make it too broad and you may as well just start a forum topic on the things. But again, YOU can control the club. In fact, when you first create a club, you're essentially the owner/leader/moderator of that club. Right off the bat you can choose the privacy mode of your club: Public - Everyone can see the club and its posts, and can participate without joining. Open - Everyone can see the club its posts, but only members can participate. Everyone can join. Closed - Everyone can see the club and who's in it, but only members can see posts and participate. Users need to ask a leader to join. Private - Only members can find the club and see its posts. Users need to be invited by a leader to join. As a group's leader, you can also choose whether your group has even has Topics or just a gallery, or a mix of both. You can create different "topic areas" too, by creating different "discussion groups." For example, should the "Apple Fans" group grow large enough, we could create discussion topics around just the iPhone or just around iOS, with a separate one for Macs/macOS. Check them out. If you're in doubt about what kind of club you'd like to create and lead, PM me or PM a few of your potential members/fellow leaders. You can find the clubs, always, right here: https://thesandtrap.com/clubs/ Their content will show up right along-side forum posts and topics in the "activity streams" many of you have bookmarked as your home page(s), like https://thesandtrap.com/discover/6/.
  12. Hi guys and gals! As of recently, I am in the market for a new set of irons and am looking for your help. In the past I have been hitting Callaway's XR irons that provide a lot of forgiveness but am now looking to make the transition to a club with a little less forgiveness and more precision. I am currently an 8 handicap. Any thoughts?

  14. How are golf clubs refurbished? What does a Golfer do to maintaine their clubs?
  15. IPS 4.2 is going to introduce something called "Clubs." We had "groups" or something similar on Huddler, and now it's coming to IPS in a more powerful way. https://invisionpower.com/news/new-clubs-r1017/ There's some information on it. My question for all of you… how would you like to see this implemented? Let's use this topic to brainstorm. What kind of club would you like to create? To join? Clubs don't have to be strictly golf-related.

    Turkey Day = DEALS GALORE

    Turkey day is here! While we all enjoy quality time with family, friends, pets, food, or any combination of them, there are plenty of golf deals all around us today and in the month to come! Just wondering: What are some areas of your bag that you're hoping to upgrade, add to, or simply something to purchase in excess this holiday season? And what are some sites and stores you'll be keeping an extra eye on? Personally, I've been able to get a hold of a Wilson FG Wedge last week that went on a pre-black Friday sale and it was something I've been eyeing for awhile. On the same note, my father was able to buy a Nike Vapor Speed driver for only $100 from a fairly small website. Enjoy the day!!
  17. Hello, I'm Jack, and I'm an intermediate golfer. I know how to play the game and I'm just working on improving my mechanics and such. However, my clubs are a clear beginning set and are absolute crap and I need some suggestions on clubs. I have a budget of about $400-500. I am fine with a complete set, or a mix of wood, iron, and wedge sets and a driver. I'm looking for whatever gets me the most for my money. For irons, I'd prefer graphite, but I'm fine with whatever. Please send me either a complete set or parts to make a set and the total price. Thanks, Jack
  18. Hello everyone, I recently got a fitting and looking to get new irons. During the fitting a tried out a couple clubs(ap1, ap2,t-mb,callaway Xr,). I didnt really like the feel of the ap1 or XR(ap2 was a little better) but as soon as I started hitting the Titleist t-md I immediately felt a great connection. It wasn't the farthest hitting club out of all tested but it really felt like butter and I was hitting it the best out of all of them. Unfortunately its a little too expensive for me. I was wondering if anyone has some alternative suggestions that would have the same feel, even if its 1-2 years older.
  19. Club Question Here: So I'm not the best at hitting a driver (I slice viciously), but lately I have been killing my 5 iron long and straight. Drivers are expensive, and I don't see myself stopping my slice anytime soon, so what clubs would you recommend for an iron that I can hit longer than a 5, without sacrificing any accuracy? What brands have the best irons? Should I stick with the 5 or upgrade to a 4 or something lower? All answers welcome.
  20. Hi everyone! Fisrt of all, excuse me if my english is not that good, I'm a french Canadian! So lately I've been searching for new clubs because I can't hit anymore my old ones (Taylormade RBZ reg flex). I'm searching for a set of irons and woods/rescues, but I already have a Driver (Cobra Bio Cell+). I know that I hit a long draw and I'm hitting like 150-155 yards with my PW (no jokes). I tried Callaway XR Pro x-stiff of one of my friend and Taylormade Burner 2.0 stiff, but I didn't get the results I was searching for. I don't know if I should go right now to x-stiff because I know that my swing speed is a bit high and I'm only 16 so I'm still growing but i want to get clubs I will keep at least 2-3 years. I'm also a 9 handicap. So here's my question: Which clubs should I buy to match my natural draw, with a budget of max 700-800 $ PS: I worked a lot this summer and I want to buy a golf accessory, I already have a Bushnell and I'll maybe buy myself the Game Golf thing but I'm not sure.. I'd like to put approximatly 150$. Thanks!
  21. Hello everyone, I am a college student in Ireland and I am currentley doing some project research about the equipment changes in golf. I am trying to get peoples opinion on the topic of equipment changes and advances through the last number of decades. My questions are as follows: Has the game of golf become easier from the changes? Has the skill factor decresed due to "easy to hit clubs"? Would the game still be as enjoyable if the introduction of Graphite and Stainless steel never happened? And finally, for those golfers who have had the pleasure of being able to play this game with both the older and newer eras of golf clubs, which provided ye with most satisfaction and pleasure? I know this topic has been spoken about a lot over the last number of years but any feedback that ye have will be greatly appreciated in advance.
  22. I am a fan of all things golf clubs and technology. However, since I work in the business and have to keep up with the technologies of each club and be able to sell those benefits to my members, I would like to be able to keep the technologies together. What makes it a Titleist, what changes and beliefs does Callaway believe in. Taylormade has befuddled me in the last couple years, every 6 months they have introduced a new driver, new FW woods and seemingly "The Next Great Thing", however most of these attempts have fallen flat. I don't think I am the only one who thinks that? SLDR, Jetspeed, RBZ, Aeroburner, R15, R1 Black, white. It just seems to never stop and never congruently head in one direction. Titleist knows who they are, tailor themselves to being slightly more exclusive and for the better player. Callaway lends itself to benefiting the beginning player, although that is not their sole goal. But, Taylormade, seems to employ the throw a bunch of stuff and see what sticks method. I am wondering how well does M1 need to do for them to gain back their market share and frankly some of their credibility with the consumer? Is it a problem or are they not worried about it because they are still making money hand over fist due to a brilliant marketing campaign? http://www.golfwrx.com/285833/taylormade-sales-decline-28-percent-in-2014/
  23. so i have been golfing since around 10 years old. And my uncle is the person who introduced me to golf so any clubs I have ever golfed with are hand me downs from him. I currently have a set of ping irons that are out dated. Now that I'm 18 and have a full time job, and have played very well lately, I would like to buy my first set of new irons. This is where I need help, I don't know what preferences I like because I don't have much experience with a lot of the new irons. How do I find which brand irons are good for me? I'd like to stay in the $300-600 range Two sets I have been looking at are the callaway x-series and Adams golf xtd both on sale for $400 at a local store with the hybrid included
  24. Simple question, and a good way to point out that we have a Q&A forum now: how do you keep your grips soft and tacky? How do you wash the grips? How do you store them? What grips stay soft and tacky the longest?
