    Here we go - why not? They do an extensive fitting. Cost is all relevant for different folks. I know plenty of 10-11 year olds with PXG.

    It was a joke, man. Just looking at your disclaimer in the OP. Had to be done.

    I agree pics would be fun and in the spirit of wrx. Less of a post about whether what others are gaming should be considered for anyone else’s child and more of a post to see what everyone’s bagging in 2019.

    I'm just here for some good glove recommendations... the UA CoolSwitch Boys Large is too small now. Everything I've found though is just a little too long in the fingers.

    There's definitely something more important that I should be doing.

    I mean, you don’t want him to see the packaging, but have you tried women’s gloves? My 10 yr old daughter can almost fit into the smallest women’s FJ. Maybe take him to the store, hide the boxes, and ask him to try some on.

    8 - Boy



    Driver : XR16 12.5* / Recoil 440 es f1

    FW: Clway Big Bertha Fusion 21* / Recoil ....testing against the incumbent TS3 51 3 wood

    Hy: TS3 51

    Irons/ wedges: TS3 51 - 5-wedges

    Alll above have outfitted Witt Winn junior grips (blue)

    Putter: Odyssey Metal X Milled

    Glove: NONE! Too much hassle for an my 8 year old to keep up with

    Shoes: adidas Boa jr.



    * we have the TS3 54” irons on deck, but I think atill a bit long/upright for his setup. He is right at 54” by the way.. with past sets I’ve found he is usually ready about an inch above the recxomensed range.



    Dad

    TS3 driver/ tensei Blue stiff, spider tour black putter, and Cleveland 588 wedges. Old 712 Ap1 Irons and other wood and hybrid are old junk....but going to Sea Island in a few weeks for a fitting for irons, woods/hybrids. Time to reinvest a little in my own game.

    Driver- 2016 M2 HL

    3 wood- Cally XJ hot, in the bag only to carry her cat headcover

    4 hybrid- 2016 M2

    5-PW TS-57

    52, 56, 60 wedges a mix of USKG and Flynn

    Grips- Winn dritec ladies

    Glove- Zero Friction youth, blue

    Bag- TM FlexTech Lite, white

    Hangon, I’m totally envious you’re getting fit at Sea Island. It’s on my list of things to do in the next couple years. Just a magnificent facility. Take some time to have lunch in the men’s grill.

    Anyone here have better / newer clubs than their kids ? It seems that with most parents I know including me that the kids are getting the latest and greatest and I know for me I’m still playing ping s58’s from about 10 yrs ago ( not sure why ) just seem to be more into my sons stuff than mine.

    I think you can apply that across the board to having kids...they get clothes more than I do, etc. etc.



    Plus I get to experience the thrill of researching and purchasing new clubs with no guilt from my wife. “Honey, she needs new clubs...she’s outgrown the set we bought this Spring.” My wife likes a good budget, and the daughter’s golf budget has one more zero than dad’s.

    I have only played golf 3 times in the last year. But I have walked many miles cadding around courses. It has been fun. Would trade it for anything in the world

    Yes, I’ve heard it’s great. Only doing irons, but really the pricing is comparable to local fitters . Big benefit is that it is outdoors on real grass. I got fit for a new driver a few

    Months ago at an indoor place. Fitter was great, but for me it’s very hard to get proper feel hitting into a screen. Wish I would of waited and done a full bag at Sea Island because I am not totally in love with the new driver.

    I can’t play anymore. I just pay the bills. I tore my labrum in my left shoulder and too painful to do certain things. I don’t want to get surgery, although it may be inevitable.

    Recovery from surgery only gets harder with age. Do it now. Many people put off ortho surgery, only to wish they had done it sooner once the recovery is over. I’m referring specifically to joints. Back surgery is a different beast.
