  1. Trying to understand my Club Champion fitting. Can someone explain what tip trimming is? When I went on the TaylorMade website there was an option for tip trimming but I did not know what to put (see picture). In addition, I noticed my lofts were altered and lie angles were changed compared to the original specs of the clubs. If I adjust my loft would the lie angle automatically be altered. Last question, Puring clubs worth it? Any helps is appreciated. Club Champion - Fitting TaylorMade website - Not sure what option to choose?
  2. Hi I was looking for some help. I've come across some christy wright ladies irons 5-9 sw and pw. Had a look online but cant find them anywhere any body know anything about them Thanks
  3. Does the 6 iron look cracked at the lower part of the face? The pro at my pro shop says the clubs are in very god condition and its only superficial
  4. I am a high handicapper shooting in the mid 90’s and have been using a set of Cleveland 588 cb irons for about 6 years(7-pw project-x stiff shafts). I have been a very casual player but recently decided I wanted to get serious about golf. My question is should I invest in a set of used “game improvement irons” ? I feel like my current irons are unforgiving although it may be my lack of practice and poor swing. Would the benefit be worth changing to something like the TaylorMade m2’s or similar clubs? Or should I just invest the money on lessons and learn to use my Cleveland 588 cb irons?
  5. I see many threads on front foot weight distribution. I would like to see what others have to say in reaction to my own thoughts. My feel on my front foot/leg is more of ‘pushing down‘ into the soil at address. Without doing so consciously, I notice the slightest bend of my knee as a result of this pushing into the ground. I then swing. Yes, the contact is very pure. The strike solid and I feel like I’m compressing the ball. I don’t in any way lean forward. Try doing this on your irons. Love to get real world feedback.
  6. I’m new here.... anyways Can’t find any info on these clubs or company (state of the art golf company) in general found one on the side of the road in a pile of other stuff (S.O.T.A E.R.S) a putter to be exact I’m just curious as to why there’s nothing on the internet about them hardly?! Like no wiki or forums, barely any forsale and the forums that do exist are like atleast ten years old and 2 of them at that really don’t have anything much about them still but there are a few forsale on eBay and stuff but I’m more curious as to what there all about more than the worth ( found it in the trash
  7. I am looking for need advice to see if my thought process regarding having different angle of attack for individual irons or groups of irons. Regarding my 19* Utility Iron, 5 iron and 6 iron I currently focus on more of a sweeping motion as in hitting a fairway wood. Hit the ball first with little to no divot. From 7 iron on thru my wedges I currently focus on a negative attack angle hitting the ball first and leaving the divot after. I am way off with this? Pros? Cons? I look forward to your advice. Thank you
  8. Hi Everyone, I just purchased a 60* lofting wedge off of Ebay. I tried it out this afternoon and it is going to take some getting used to. However, I love it. It is so nice to chip the ball up to the flag pin and have it take just one bounce and stop. The down side, is you have to hit it pretty hard and follow through or you won't get there. I use it if I am within 50 yards of the flag. One side note is that I don't use it. If I am uphill of the flag. For that I use my pitching wedge. It is Diamond coated and will scrape the outside finish off of the ball sometime
  9. Just started playing again after a ~5 year break, and planning to buy a set of clubs as I currently don’t have any. I’ve been searching on eBay and have narrowed it down to two choices for my irons - the Cobra CXIs or Mizuno MX 20s. They are basically the same price, and both are 4-PW (although the Mizuno set also has a gap wedge). Does anyone have any advice on which would be better in terms of forgiveness/high handicap play? Thanks :)
  10. Hi All, I've been working on improving my game, and in turn have started thinking about getting a better set of clubs. For context, being serious about golf is really new to me so I may ask a dumb question or make a dumb statement. I found a set of Ping i10 irons on Craigslist for $175. The club heads appear to be in good shape. As far as I know, Pings are pretty valuable clubs. However, I use a 1" longer shaft, and they badly need new grips. I'm not sure on the price of getting new shafts and grips. I'm wondering if it's a good value to pick up that set of irons and get new sha
  11. Hi all. I stumbled across these beauties at an antique shop in Eastern Kentucky. I wanted to share them in hopes someone could provide more information. I would love to know more. Especially specs like loft. The set goes 2-9, and then an 11. The little bit of information I have found puts these clubs at being manufactured in 1969. Any information or value is appreciated! Enjoy!
  12. PING introduces G410 iron, compact distance model Ping G410 Irons Announcement
  13. I'm in a real dilemma... I've been fitted by two different fitters and got two different irons results... one (Golf Galaxy) put me in Rogue X w Recoil 460 S-flex, and one (Club Champion) put me in Rogue w graphite R-flex... what's going on here? ....yes, the Champion was more thorough, but the Galaxy fitter seemed very confident in his opinion (well, they both seemed confident). Is Champion just trying to sell me their more expensive shafts? Or... like I say, what? Could it be that I was different on different days of fitting, like less flexible body one day compared to the next or somethin
  14. Callaway Golf today officially announced their new Big Bertha Irons and Big Bertha Hybrids, which are available nationwide on January 18, 2019, and available for pre-order starting November 30th. Both are designed with advanced technologies to deliver long distance and easy launch. Big Bertha Irons Callaway is calling these their easiest to hit distance iron. They feature a new technology called the Suspended Energy Core, which they say is the engine of the Big Bertha Irons. Per Callaway: The Big Bertha Irons also feature the 360 Face Cup which combined with the Suspend
  15. I was recently fitted for a new set of Ping i500 irons. I was playing an older set of Mizuno JPX 800 pros. After a few hours on the range, it didn’t look like the new irons were going longer. The lofts on the i500 are about 2 degrees less than my mizuno (long to mid iron, pw and gw are the same) My 7-iron is about a 170 yard club, but I seem to be about 5-10 yards shorter with the new irons. During the fitting, I went thru about 4 different shafts before I got something that gave me good numbers in the Trackman. Does anyone have any experience in this area? I know the i500 has been p
  16. Hi, this is my first post. I would appreciate some advice please. I have got old irons (Mizuno Pro II t zoids with regular steel shafts) and a Mizuno 600 driver (approx 2009). my handicap is 4.9. my fairways hit with driver is 53% greens in reg 36%. I have a shotscope 2 which is excellent for feedback. i went for an iron fitting but the quote was £2000 which is too expensive for me. The main benefit with the new irons would be 18-20 yards more distance per club. The dispersion was not improved. I have booked a driver fitting tomorrow.
  17. Went to a Cleveland/Srixon demo day today and got to hit these. Came away really impressed with the entire lineup. Really gorgeous clubs. The Z785 is their player's iron offering. It's a cavity-back club but with a lot of the mass behind the sweetspot kind of like the Mizuno SC18 or the Titleist AP2. Has a very clean look at address with not too much offset and the modern thin topline (if you've played real butter knives you know what I mean). Felt really good hitting it. It's slightly more forgiving than my MP4s but still demands a pretty good swing. The Z585 is more of a player's g
  18. I find myself looking at irons on eBay lately. It's a bad habit of mine. A few winters ago, I bought a set of vintage Hogans. They were kind of fun to kick around with for a bit. I played close to half that season with them even though they were way too much (or is it too little?) club for me. I still practice with them, but they're mostly collecting dust - some in the basement, some in the garage, and I have one (now two, actually) in the coat closet. Now I'm looking at Mizunos. Modern, though: MP 4s and MP 64s. Figured they're more playable than the Hogans, not that I'm in the market fo
  19. From time to time, the topic of modern irons and jacked up lofts comes up and a common criticism is that individual irons hitting farther creates wider gaps at the scoring end of the bag. I thought about this a little bit and I realized, as I'm getting better at the game, I almost never hit a full swing on an approach shorter than 150 yards. I've always liked the partial wedge yardage system and this year I finally mapped mine, but I also find myself using the knockdown or 3/4 swing approach to hitting greens with short irons more and more. As a result, even though my full swing yard
  20. Ok I’m am convinced that getting fit for the correct clubs can help your game but until now I never considered the possibility that playing the wrong clubs can hinder your performance to a point where it really damages your whole game. I recently went and had a driver fitting. Before starting I was given a 7 iron to warm up with. After a dozen hits I had an average swing speed of 98mph with the 7 iron. Now 12 months ago when I got serious about golf I brought a secondhand set of cobra baffled irons with regular flex shafts. They are nice and easy to hit but as the year has gone on my consisten
  21. 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
  22. Hey all! So, I’m convinced that I’m in need of new (stiffer) shafts in my irons. This is based on a few data points: 1) I have a two way miss that I am having great difficulty correcting. Either a push straight right, or a hard overdraw/hook. I read that some who have too-flexible/light shafts can have this miss pattern. Seems to fit my situation. If I S L O W my swing down, I can straighten it a bit, but it feels unnatural, like I’m putting the brakes on my swing. I’d rather swing full. I feel like I’m walking on a razor with the ‘right’ speed, and I’m thinking it would help to have
  23. Interesting. A foam-filled cavity-back from PING? Wonder if PXG will sue them too.
  24. 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?
  25. Hi All, I’m looking to purchase irons, wedges, drivers and looking for recommendations. My selection is very limited because I am a lefty/female with a swing speed that averages around 65. I am presently using Callaway’s Strata set and would like to upgrade. Can any of you assist me with recommendations? Thanks!
