  1. I have a habit of rotating my fairway woods. Once I throw down the bucks for a driver, it stays put for at least 5 years. My irons (MP-14), over 20 years now. My putter changed from a Ping B-60 (20 years) to an Odyssey Marksman (past 10 years). Still have the B-60. My wedge is Cleveland Tour Action 56 deg that I've had for over 30 years. I've killed a rattlesnake with it. The fairway woods are like old girlfriends, you think about them once in a while, but the memory fades. There is always that one that seem to stick in your mind the longest. Mine was a Ping ISI 3- wood with a regular flex steel shaft. So I searched and searched without my wife knowing, and set a date ( 1 week shipping) to get reacquainted with my old friend:) Diablo move over..... Here's a picture. After all these years, I don't look that good either.
  2. What's Your favorite club and why?

    Would like to know more about types and brands of clubs? I'm new to the lifestyle and well I can read reviews till I bleed from the eyes but actual users and reasons would be a great help. I personally like my irons (ping eye2's blue dot). I can hit them straight and each club up or down I can get about 10 yards plus or minus. 60-75% I hit them where I pray they go. I know there old as dirt but they hit nice and well just starting I figure I'll upgrade next season. Kinda why I'm looking for input. I have a tour edge bazooka QL 11 degree driver. Still trying to figure that monster out and a Ben Hogan 3 hybrid but have not hit it yet. I also have an older odyssey white hot putter with a fat grip.
  3. Considering both. With price not being an factor which would you choose or if you own either one what do you like/dislike? Personally I was ready to pull the trigger on the sc until I saw the odyssey yesterday. Different set up but I like the it and when adding the counter weight to the shaft it felt really good.
  4. Last summer I switched wedges from CG14s to Calla MD3 family, and got an XR16 Pro driver (R-flex) which straightened out my tee shots. Now, I've made a couple of other changes, mainly by chance "good deals" over the winter which are working out. New FWs and a new putter. I reluctantly have put aside my Tour Edge XRail 4W and 7W for Callaway 815 Alpha FW which I kept stumbling across. I got an 18° with the idea of using it at 17° as a single FW. Got an unhit model at a Thanksgiving area clearance sale for $129. Then, I stumbled across a slightly used 14° Alpha, also for $129 at Golfsmith switching to GG. My original plan was to open the two up to 16° and 20°, but the 15° setting gets the ball up fairly well. So, I've got the two at 15° and 19° for the short run. The Alpha head has two sole weights: put the heavy one up front, and you get a more penetrating flight. Put the heavy in back, and you get higher launch. I'm keeping heavy in back. I got to try both out at Myrtle Beach last week, and they have equal distance to the XRails but the Alphas seem easier to keep on line. Both have the Speeder 665 R-flex shaft (62 grams), with a 3.9 torque. My driver has the Speeder 665 TS R-flex, but the standard 665 works better for me in the FWs. The Alphas are a tad heavier overall, which helps. On the week, I had three 15° shots that traveled 220 yds. total. The Alpha misses tend to end up in first cut of rough, rather than in never-never land. I got the same tip from two different pros at the February golf expo. I had too much footwork in my swing, which sometimes led to poor balance. I've focused on keeping my weight back on the heels, and this has really helped keep me on balance. My wife says I'm swinging the best and most balanced in 10 years. At MB, I had a couple of spells each 18 where my swing got flaky, but was able to recover both times. Had trouble shaking off the "bad return" last two years. I shot a 91 at Heathland (five pars, including two 2-putt pars after approach shots from fairway bunkers) and a 96 at Shaftesbury Glen (weird back nine at the Glen: a birdie, a double b, a triple bogie and six bogies). I played tees measuring out at about 6,000 yards at both courses. As for putter, I stumbled across a local shop which has a good inventory of the Slotline Inertia putters. The heads have tungsten heel and toe weighting, and I got the SL-583F model. Slotline got sold to Dynamic Brands about 5 years ago, and I'm not sure the putters are a production model anymore. The putter had really straightened out my line, and I just need to work a bit on distance control. For set-up, my hands should be about a half-inch in front of the clubface for a square hit and good roll. I sometime put the hands back too much, and hit too much on the upswing and leave the putt short.
  5. Since Jordan Speith's putting was instrumental in his win yesterday I'm posting a pic of my $2 garage sale cheapo Knight putter which looks much in shape and design like Speith's expensive Scotty Cameron 009 putter. I saw a putter like Speith's on ebay with an opening bid of $3,499.00.. The only noticeable difference as far as I can see is the price. While Jordan made some great putts yesterday with his putter, likewise I made some of the same sort of putts during my last round from about the same distances or longer as Jordan did with my cheapo putter. I just don't get what the big hoopla is over expensive putters.
  6. Just saw Rick Shiels' review on this. I have never really seen a putter that I *wanted*. Even though Rick is a tad lukewarm on it, I think it looks awesome. If it didn't cost 300+ bucks . .I'd get one! Good job, Nike for being the first company to ever make a putter that made me think, "man, I want one of those". I'm totally not getting one, of course.
  7. Kirk currie

    Looking to have my kirk currie putter refurbushed. Can anybody tell me who does it? Thanx Nunisam
  8. What golfer's putter do you think is the most famous in the history of the game? Bobby Jones' Calamity Jane. Arnold Palmer's 8802. Jack Nicklaus' MacGregor Response. Tiger's Newport 2. If you voted for "Other", please post the putter in this thread.
