PreppySlapCut’s WITB

PreppySlapCutPreppySlapCut This is just babytown frolics...Members Posts: 6,393 ✭✭
Well, as 2017 winds down, might as well post my first WITB! I’ve been on this site for a long time, and for some reason this never happened. A little about my game: I’m a 33 year old teaching professional. After fighting a nagging wrist condition for a couple years that prevented me from being able to play at a reasonable level, I’m finally healthy and spent the last month of the tournament season actually contending in my section. Nice change.



My game, much like when I was a decent amateur player, is wildly unspectacular. My driver SS in season tops out around 110, if I’m able to hit fairways and I can get some mid/short irons in my hand, I can score. My distance/trajectory/shape control with my short irons has always been my strength. I was never a good short game player or putter. As I got into teaching, and surrounded myself with people who knew what they were doing, my short game started to improve, but the putting took a little more time. I dabbled with putting side-saddle, which was an improvement but the comfort level wasn’t quite where I wanted it. Finally was able to develop a feel for what I want to happen in the stroke and it was as like a light bulb went off.



Without further ado, my setup:



Driver: TaylorMade 2017 M2, 9.5*, Set 2* Open 1.5* Flat, Mitsubishi Tensei Pro White 60-S, tipped 1/2”. Club plays 45”, D3 SW, ZCord 60 Ribbed.



3W: Ping G 14.5*, Neutral, Accra FX 200 M4, Tipped 1/2”. Club plays 43”, D3 SW, ZCord 60 Ribbed.



Hybrid: Ping G30 17*, Accra Tour Z Matt Kuchar Proto M5. Club plays 41”, D3 SW, ZCord 60 Ribbed.



Driving Iron: Mizuno MMC Fli-Hi 16.5*, UST Recoil 95-S. STD Length, D3 SW, ZCord 60 Ribbed.



(Depending on course setup, one of those gets swapped out)



Irons: Mizuno MP-18 Combo. Fli-Hi 4, SC 5, MB 6-PW. KBS C-Taper S, 38.5” 5i, Std Lie, D4 SW, ZCord 60 Ribbed.



Wedges: Mizuno T7 50*, 55*, 60*. Nippon Modus Wedge, 1/2” Over, 1* Flat, D5 SW, ZCord 60 Round.



Putter: Scotty Cameron Toolbox Mid-Neck Circa 3 Proto. 35”, 340g, Studio Grip.



I’ll be adding some more info, musings about my game, etc.

    Fantastic setup. I'm very similar with my irons. Looking to maybe add the Fli-Hi too as a swap out between the hybrid and driving iron. I've been super impressed with the MP-18!

    I keep it around par, usually. Prior to getting healthy, I struggled to keep it even remotely consistent, so there were way more rounds in the 80s than the 60s. The last couple months I’ve been able to reverse that and I’m optimistic I can continue to trend proper. Last round of the year was a two man event shot 66 on my own ball.

    Fairly solid, nothing wrong with a 66.

    @Preppy,



    You're going in the right direction! Many folks don't realize that the many professional responsibilities of a non-touring Professional make very little time for self play/practice. Keep up the solid play and enjoy those beautiful clubs!



    Here's to a safe/pleasant Thanksgiving. If we are on this site today then we have much to be thankful for!

    This is the first time in a few years that I’ve been able to go back to steel, so I figured I would give something a little different a shot in the wedges. The Nippons have a nice soft feel, which I like.

After fighting a nagging wrist condition for a couple years that prevented me from being able to play at a reasonable level, I’m finally healthy and spent the last month of the tournament season actually contending in my section.

I dabbled with putting side-saddle, which was an improvement but the comfort level wasn’t quite where I wanted it. Finally was able to develop a feel for what I want to happen in the stroke and it was as like a light bulb went off.

    You're winning!!! The hole in your pic (post #28) is BEAUTIFUL no matter what the conditions may present (cold, windy, etc.). I'm just your run-of-the-mil / Tiger-gen (generation) / hack from SoCal. I don't get that kind of visual ambience on my BEST seasonally-appropriate day at the courses I play. That green is WINNING!!! You're the real MVP :-D



    For the record, it was like 72*F+ today (11/30/2017) in my universe and I still don't have that view... Yeah...
