    Thanks! Haha I've had it for about a month now and so far, I'm liking it. My normal gamer is a Scotty Cameron Hollywood, but figured that I'd mess around with the TA to see how I liked it. The biggest thing is how much more consistent I am on 20-30 footers.

    Glad to see someone besides myself carries long irons and a hybrid---- That tells me right off you know your game and equipment--- And gotta give you extra points for the NC State headcover on the hybrid.

    Thanks! Trying to decide which one will stay in the bag - but really like both. 3-wood cover is also NC State. Assuming you are an alum?

    That's awesome! I need to get back down there to play the course some. Unfortunately, it didn't open until my senior year, but I love it down in Raleigh.

    they had to leave the range and go to the course. He was flying everything
    If memory serves, it was 55* out and misty rainy and he was one hopping it into a fwy bunker 115 from the green on a 505 yard par 5

    Have not been to Raleigh in years--- Back in the day we used to play at the old RGA course on Tryon Hills road---- And I have played Prestonwood over in Cary another one of my Dad's friends was the director of golf there before he passed away a few years back. Also way back we used to play Cheviot Hills over on US1 but that course has been gone probably 35 years or more now

    That's insane!! It's really impressive just how far they hit it!

    Loved playing RGA while I was in school! Loved that it was a flat rate, as I would usually play 27 or 36 holes whenever I went out.
