  1. Rickie Fowler talks about his switch to TaylorMade's TP5x golf ball - Golf Digest Rickie Fowler played Titleist golf balls since junior golf. Here he speaks about his switch to a TaylorMade ball for 2019. Next up… Snell! 🙂
  2. I just bought this bag. NEVER BEEN USED. Still has the fresh leather smell, no lint, NOTHING, for $100. Is it worth it?
  3. Hi all! I am currently looking to upgrade from my old Nike Ignite irons. A few years back i purchased a Taylormade M2 driver and was considering going with the 2016 M2 tour irons, possibly just the 2017 M2's, or 2017 M1 irons. But, I have seen quite a few people that have experienced the faces caving in on these irons. I have not measured my swing speed on a trackman, but with the Zepp 2.0 my driver swing speed is around 100mph. I am not sure if this would even be fast enough to cave these irons in. If it is, does anyone know if Taylormade will replace caved in M2 irons if I bought them used? With the release of the new M3 and M4 Irons the M2's and M1's can be found relatively cheap and lightly used on eBay. If not, what iron set (any manufacturer) would be comparable in terms of distance and forgiveness? Another option that I have thought about are the P790's. Does anyone know if these are "too much club" for a 15 handicap?
  4. My shoulder isn't 100% and it's going to rain, but f*** it I'm going golfing tomorrow.

  5. Good Morning, I have finally got some extra spending money to re-shaft my driver shaft that I broke last month. The club is a taylormade burner super fast 2.0 10.5 degree loft. Would it be best to just get it re-shafted with the stock shaft (if thats possible) or is there a particular shaft that would be beneficial for me to try out (22 cap, 95-100 mph swing speed average)? Do you guys typically buy your shaft online and have it re-shafted at a local shop or just have the local shop turnkey it? I am fairly new to details about my golf equipment, and I have always just used what came off the shelf. This broken shaft is giving me an opportunity to explore it a little deeper..just curious as to what to get and where to get it.
  6. Shirley and I did a quick Friday trip to the St. Louis Golf Expo at St. Charles Convention Center. My brother Sam drove in from Jefferson City and joined us. This year I basically popped in without my usual pre-study of new stuff; just a busy spring overall. Here's what I saw: Rogue Iron Testing Got to try all three versions of the Rogue irons. Here are the head and shaft combos. Note: My impressions are strictly based on feel and eyesight view of launch. None of the hitting stations had launch monitors. Rogue X was iron model used for the GolfTEC swing analysis. The 6i had the KBS Max 90 shaft - rather odd looking with the Rogue sky blue colored label, not a touch of KBS red. The club felt smooth, but the shaft was just too light - I had to almost baby it so as to not overswing. I would like to try it with a heavier shaft. Rogue (standard) felt better. Head has moderate but not glaring offset. The 6i with XP95 stepless felt smooth and lively, similar to the feel of a KBS Tour 90. I got good launch with it, and a lighter stiff was easy to handle. I next tried a 7i with the PX LZ 105 shaft. This felt borderline harsh, although not as robust as the PX 5.0 shafts I had formerly in my X20 Tours. Don't know if the lighter LZ would work better once my swing was in shape. Rogue Pro with felt best. Head had very modest offset, which helps me due to my handsy swing. XP105 stepless felt lively and solid; was really surprised how well a stiff felt. It launched just as high as the Rogue combos. If I got the Pro version, I would need some launch monitor comparisons on possible shafts. I would also like to try these with Recoil shafts. Callaway rep said the tests would tell if I needed Rogue Pro heads throughout, maybe with 4i and 5i softstepped, or I would be better with same shaft flex, but standard Rogue heads for 4i and 5i. TE Hybrid Doesn't Turn Left? Tour Edge rep Dave Jacobs, AKA "Jake", made the Expo again this year. He's trying to convert me to a TE bag, as I sometimes play the XRail FWs (see below). The discussion shifted to @onthehunt526's search for bridge clubs in his annual bag rework. Jake said OTH would really like the CBX hybrid. These were designed with input from the Champion's Tour, and are engineered to tease out left misses (you can play a draw, but the head design reportedly works against unwanted left, a major fear of OTH). These new TE hybrids have taken a page from revived Hogans. CBX heads come in 16°, 17°, 18°, 19°, 20°, and 22°. Jake also reminded me that CBX FWs were winning distance contests against competitors. And the CBX FWs and hybrids are fixed loft. TE decided that the 25 gram weight of the adjustment cogs was throwing off the clubhead dynamics. At PGA Show 2016, XXIO had announced a move to all non-adjustable woods and drivers, going instead with a set matrix of shafts and heads. TM Twist TaylorMade was in a strange undercover posture. No tent, just bags and test clubs between the Callaway and Ping canopies. I got a look at the M4 driver with the twist face to correct mishits. Holding the head in my hand, I could see the different look of the face. I didn't bother to hit it - the less loft on low left and the extra high toe loft would make my miss patterns even worse. My brother Sam had already been fitted for the M4-D version driver. At the expo, he decided to buy the M2 3W.HL (17°) to replace his historic bubbleshafted TM Burner 3W and 5W. Even second-gen M1 and M2 FWs are getting price cuts now. Hope everyone had a good Groundhog Day. Later!
  7. Just curious if anyone is still gaming the original RBZ 3 wood and if you have any comparisons to current 3 woods. I got rid of mine and I think I want it back!
  8. Hi all. Great to be here and talking to some fellow golfers. I am looking at getting new irons for the 2018 season. For the past year ( last leg of 2016 to present ) I have been taking my golf really seriously. I have dropped from a 15 Handicap to a 6 in the last year. I want to change my irons. I am looking at Mizuno mp 18 MB , Titleist 718 MB , Taylormade P730 and Callaway Apex MB. From a little of my own research I have found Mizuno to be the best "Blade" according to people ( This is based on my own research ). Which out of these will be the better brand? Second question. What are your opinions on forged iron durability. I hit alot of balls 3 - 4 times a week. Its my own personal driving range so I hit my own "range balls". I hit of Kikuyu grass on the range. Will this cause more wear on forged clubs than normal ones ? I currently play Taylormade m2 Tour irons. The course I play has hard fairways. As I am from South Africa this is the norm for a lot of courses in my area. This will be first set of proper players irons. Reason : As I am improving I am starting to wonder if the more forgivable irons are covering weaknesses in my swing. I am pushing for scratch mid next year. Kind Regards Kudu
  9. Went to the Gateway Chapter PGA merchandise sale at Missouri Athletic Club - West in St. Louis County. This marketplace allows for the regional golf shops and country clubs to have a pre-Thanksgiving clearance. This allows the shops to unload hard and soft goods that haven't moved out during current retail activity. An area the size of a large basketball court was divided up about 2/3 apparel and gadgets and 1/3 golf clubs. Several of the lighter name-brand stand bags were marked down to between $100 and $125. Good deals if you needed them. Change this year: Very little haggling and bargaining on the golf clubs - price on the tag was what it would cost. For irons, lots of new and slightly used Ping G30 iron sets on sale for around $400 to $500. Some Ping G sets also showed up, for slightly more. An assortment of Cobra and slightly used Mizuno irons also available, along with quite a few Titleist AP1 sets. Also some slightly used or new Callaway XR Steelheads - but the vendors wanted $650 or $700... might as well spend an extra $50 to $100 and get a custom fit. The iron tables were more orderly than in the past. Sets put our about a foot apart. The different shop reps has inventory printouts and could tell what else they had in their vans outside the door. Basically sell a couple of sets, bring out a couple more. Among wedges, mainly Vokey SM6 and Cleveland RTX 2.0 mostly with cellophane still on the heads. New SM6 = $99, RTX = $75. Not much in Callaway or other that wasn't used. Curiously, I saw two new Callaway blue-dot Mac Daddy Forged in 50*/10 for $125; I tracked down the shop rep, and he said the 50*/10 versions simply didn't sell - not one! He said more shops are willing to unload new merchandise that nobody wants. Note: Most of the SW, 54* and 56* were low-bounce heads; not many high bouncers available. I picked up a new TM R Series Tour Grind EF Spin Groove LW, a 60/10 with a KBS Wedge shaft for $75. This pretty fills out the backup TaylorMade bag I've assembled the past year. I'm still looking for a decent used TM driver that isn't obscenely expensive. For long clubs, the place had barrels of the original 2016 M1 and M2 drivers, FWs and hybrids. M2 models more plentiful. The prices roughly matched those of the TM online site. Quite a few Ping G30 and G items also. G30 drivers were mainly the LTec version. The apparel zone was a good place to pick up golf shirts from a big-name clubs or hot tournaments for $30 rather than $70. Great deals on shirts and the lighter pulllover shells, and golf hats. Not much of a markdown on rain gear. Side note: Talked to the shop reps, and they reported the profit margin on wedges is low; golfers are replacing them more than in past to get new grooves, so the OEMs expect them to make it up in volume. Profit margin on golf balls reportedly is minimal. As one guy said, "If I sell five boxes of ProV.1s, I make about enough for a Big Mac meal." Always good to talk the the reps, pros and fitters to find out what's afoot in the industry. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Note: Reps report that the Callaway Epic long clubs and the Steelhead-XR FWs are going by the wayside. Coming to a golf shop near you is the replacement line called The Rogue. Reports have been out since October, but this was the first I had heard of it. I can't find any pix yet. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  10. Seems like TaylorMade's answer to the PXG irons. From TaylorMade: TaylorMade Golf, the industry leader in iron technology and innovation, announced today the expansion of its globally successful P700-series iron lineup with the addition of the P790 irons, a forged players distance iron engineered with new SpeedFoam Technology for golfers seeking the forged look and feel of a players iron with increased distance, forgiveness and playability. With P790, TaylorMade’s engineers have answered the challenge of creating a forged iron that delivers remarkable distance and playability combined with remarkable feel in a medium-compact head design with a thinner topline and reduced offset preferred by discerning players. This was accomplished by incorporating technologies that improve on feel, sound and consistency while delivering significant distance. The P790 features a soft, 8620 carbon steel body combined with a high-strength forged 4140 carbon steel WrapFace in a hollow body design. The P790’s hollow cavity incorporates SpeedFoam Technology, a new proprietary construction which serves a dual purpose of generating ball speed as well as the management of sound and feel. Injected into the clubhead, SpeedFoam provides the face support and damping properties that make the performance of the P790 unlike any other iron in the TaylorMade family. The incorporation of the WrapFace construction creates a cut-thru Speed Pocket on the sole with extreme flexibility in the lower part of the clubface; it’s this flexibility which creates greater forgiveness and consistency than is typically seen in a distance iron design. The P790 also features an ultra-thin 1.75mm face thickness with re-engineered Inverted Cone Technology optimized for the slightly smaller face area. Whereas the company’s previous ICT which had a larger, heavier profile, the new, smaller Inverted Cone allows for reduced face thickness at the edges of the face, thus increasing flexibility from heel to toe and low on the clubface, resulting in more ball speed across the entire face. For forgiveness and playability, P790 irons feature strategically placed internal metal-injection-molded (MIM) tungsten weighting for precise CG placement and higher moment of inertia (MOI). Pricing and Availability Available at retail on September 15 (U.S. & Canada) & September 29 (globally), P790 irons will be offered in 3-PW, AW equipped with True Temper’s Dynamic Gold 105 steel shafts ($1,299) or UST Mamiya’s Recoil 760/780 ES SmacWrap graphite shafts ($1,499) with Golf Pride Tour Velvet 360 grips. Numerous other custom shaft options are also available.
  11. Besides the price, what is the main difference between the taylormade TP5 and the 2016 taylormade tour preferred balls? I wanted to order the TP5's but want to know if they are worth the $44 a dozon

    I saw this app in Google Play and thought it was interesting. It is produced by Taylormade with the help of Mark Broadie. It allows users to track strokes-gained statistics. Has anybody used this? It sounds similar to Game Golf w/o the tags. I believe it would be a bother to tag each shot using a phone.

  14. Hello everyone, New to the forum and new to the game, just picked golf up about a month ago and I picked up some cheap Wilson Ultra blk clubs new for 130 bucks. I've been to the driving range every other day and I'm looking to go ahead and upgrade the clubs. The driver for the Wilson is horrible for a weak. Looking at the Taylormade AeroBurner for a driver at my local Taylormade outlet on sale for $100. What do you guys think of this driver as it was released in 2014 is it too old should I wait and get a newer driver any opinion is greatly appreciate it. Thanks in advance.
  15. The day Nike closed their equipment business, TW put the Cameron back in the bag. Not one of the 100s of replicas Scotty Cameron has made him, he put THE putter back in the bag. The putter he used to win 13 major championships. I am thinking he just sticks with the putter, and voted "No" in the poll above.

    Nike looks at TaylorMade?

    This rumor keeps surfacing: Nike wants to buy TaylorMade. I first saw talk of this on GolfWRX in August. After 21 quick replies to the initial posting in a 5-hour window, the GW moderators locked the topic. (Probably the lock came after someone suggested Nike would rebrand TM clubs as Nike to advance their market position. ... Nike only had 3% of golf club market share at its exit.) Next I found the topic in Golf Central, but it ended up being a rather silly comedy spoof. Now, I get a couple minutes of comment from a clubfitter at a local golf shop. He expects that Nike will clear out all remaining golf clubs, and then buy TaylorMade, and let its Nike apparel fill the market gap left when TM exits Adidas. Anyone heard anything about Nike and TaylorMade?
  17. I'm getting a new toy for Christmas. I'm getting a new driver and it's going to be a Ping G30. I'm stuck between the regular G30 and G30 LS Tec. My solid/proffered hits are push draws with a mid launch. My mishits are blocks and the occasional push slice. My straight hits tends to be slight fade bias. Which way should I go? I'm leaning toward the LS.
  18. They didn't send their new clubs to be reviewed by Mark Crossfield and a website that does independent testing. Not smart.
  19. Mygolfspy.com, a site the reviews a lot of equipment, has an interesting 2 part series on the story of TaylorMade. Basically, they needed to come up with a means to disrupt the market, did a great job of this on their way to generating almost $2B in revenues, and then in an effort to keep pace with their success made a number of poor decisions, and mismanaged their lineup horribly. Now adidas is looking for a buyer... http://www.mygolfspy.com/the-rise-and-fall-of-taylormade-part-1/ http://www.mygolfspy.com/the-rise-fall-of-taylormade-part-2-the-empire-crumbles/

    My Swing (Ramnation)

    6'5" 230, two torn shoulders, and in the woods Jk, but really. First post here, but not new to a forum community. Quick back ground. Played baseball til I was 24, have a slap tear in both my labrums from it, and need some help with swing path due to range of motion. My lead (left) shoulder has a tendency to click when my backswing is on the ideal path, so my natural path gets reallyyy shallow to subconsciously avoid that pain. I shoot anywhere from a 74-85 and the driver is all 11 of those strokes.Thanks a bunch in advance. Been a long time reader -- look forward to contributing where I can.
  21. When say things like "Sergio plays a driver at 43 inches ", etc. Or, "the standard driver length is 45.5". Are they referring to the shaft length (tip to grip) or the total club length with clubhead installed? How much length does the clubhead add to the shaft length for an average 460cc driver? Apologies if this has been discussed before.. Many thanks in advance!
  22. Warning - video autoplay is loud and a pain to pause. I wonder who its potential buyers would be? At half a billion USD, not many, will probably be bought out by someone like Callaway and the industry consolidates? http://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2016-05-04/adidas-decides-to-sell-golf-division-to-focus-on-clothing
  23. I've been thinking about getting a driving iron, I currently play a Nike VRS 21º looking to get a driving iron to replace it. I'm looking for one with some forgiveness and easy to hit. I'm a pretty good ball striker, I saw Cobra drops a new Utility Iron on May 1st but not sure if you'd qualify that as a driving iron though, Let me know what you guys think.
  24. Basically an M1 without the CG adjustability to sell it at a lower price point. Important to note that it's not replacing the M1, it's adding to the line.
  25. I started playing golf at the beginning of the year and got a Golf Australia handicap of 27.5 in April, I have set myself a goal of getting to scratch in 18 months. 8 months later I have a GA handicap of 13.7. Is my goal possible? Is there anyone out there that has done the same who can give some solid advice?
