    I just got them both yesterday and won't get to play until I get to Scotland next week.



    I am super excited about the Artisan I went to Ft Worth and worked w John on a fitting the whole experience was awesome. He goes super in depth and looks at things that others do not. I've been through more putter fittings than I can count over the years but it had been about 3 years and some things about my setup and stroke had changed. We really dialed in my specs and I'm super confident with the setup. Love the finish I'm really a sucker for a good patina.



    The SWAG also really fits my eye well and has basically the same setup. I really like what he did with the shape of that thing.
    where abouts in Scotland you going to be playing ?




    I'll be in Campbeltown for 12 days I'll mostly be playing at Machrahanish, Machrahanish Dunes and Dunaverty. Might get over to Machrie and Shiskine also.




    All good courses , I'm down the Ayrshire coast by royal troon and old Prestwick , if your ever over that way or over for a long period, we should get a game sorted.

    Beautiful morning here in Campbeltown. 50* and a little sun. My son and I are going to tee it shortly.



    That sounds good I'll let you know next time I am in that area. 2 great courses there too.

    Bag looks great...what happened to the Exotics fairways? I am giving TEE a try this season and thought I remembered you really liking them.
  • FairwayFredFairwayFred Sponsors Posts: 4,020 ✭✭
    I went away from the TEE when I changed bag setup and went from a Mini Driver and 4w to a 3w and an extra wedge.

    Snow needs to melt so I can test some clubs!

    Any mini-review on the Epic Flash SZ fairways. Hearing great stuff from friends that have already played them.

    Unfortunately I haven't had the chance to try them enough to post a review. Too much snow where I live. I am going to Ireland a week from tomorrow so they will get a good workout over there.



    In my initial testing they are fantastic for ball speed and get the ball up in the air with the right amount of spin. Plus they look fabulous.

    Picked up these new proto Nippon graphite shafts. Not sure when these hit the market but soon. Got fit for them by Mark at the show. Super excited to try them.

    New irons shafted and ready to go.



    I have 9 irons/wedges (26* - 58* in 4* increments) so I thought it made sense to stamp them like this for club identification purposes. #screwconvention

    Ari,



    Do you let the rust run wild or do you manage the patina in any way?



    Just saw a hint of rust starting to develop on my NCW set, which have only seen indoor use this winter, and am thinking of options once they touch a real blade of grass.

    I let the rust run wild personally. If it gets to be too much I might rub them down a little with some oooo steel wool.
