Trials and tribulations of an anal club-ho (PIC HEAVY)
The great British weather has put paid to any golf this weekend due to a hefty sprinkling of snow,so i thought i'd start up a little blog of my 2010 equipment and beyond while im sitting here with nothing to do.....



Im awaiting a few of this seasons items to arrive this week (Irons Monday and wedges Wednesday) and the 3 wood ive bought is being re-finished right now too and should be done by Xmas.Even the clubs that are in the bag have only been there for a matter of weeks,so everything is new for the upcoming season.



This year is going to be a real mix in the bag of old favourites,new technology,shapes i like and happy memories !!!!

I'll add pics as stuff arrives.





DRIVER



907D2 (Much loved) is out and a 909D2 is in.Lets hope the trend continues as driver is about my strongest club,and one i truly normally "Hit anywhere":



Titleist 909D2 Driver

8.5 Degree

44.5" long

UST AxivCore Red 69g X flex tipped 1"

D2 Swingweight

Tour Velvet .580 Ribbed.

3 Wood



Titleist 906F4 is out - TaylorMade 200 series makes a comeback.



Im just hoping that 'good memories' isnt all this turns out to be.Ive bought a 15 degree 200 series 3 wood head in good condition thats curently being re-finished.Previously had one of these in the bag for quite a few years,and as someone who struggles with a 3 wood at times i have great memories of this club:



TaylorMade 200 Series 3 wood

D2 Swingweight

Tour Velvet .580 Ribbed

And now finished:

HYBRID



Ive been sticking with the beloved Sonartecs in various head guises for a few years; but have had a change this year and gone for something a little more compact in size in the TaylorMade Burner Tour Launch.So far - so good:



TaylorMade Burner Tour Launch

18 Degree

IRONS



Ive managed to bag a set of brand new and unused Callaway X-20 Tours with non-flighted PX 6.5's in (Some achievement here in the UK with how old they are now!).This will be my 3rd set of X-20 tours - and after a bit of swapping around im back to a set i know,love and trust and am REALLY,REALLY looking forward to getting out there with them again. Ive not managed to get close to the performance i get with these with anything else......



Callaway X-20 Tours (3-PW) With Satin Finish

Standard Lofts

Standard Lies

Standard Lengths

Non-Flighted Project X 6.5's

Tour Velvet .580 ribbed.

006-1.jpg



CLOSE-UP OF SATIN FINISH (Dont you hate that 'tacky' polished ring as standard ???)



002-2.jpg









WEDGES



Ok - im a Vokey man through and through (Who isnt really !).Nothing but a slight change of lofts and finish for me in 2010. (Going for 52 and 58) this year due to the fact the X-20 Tour PW is 46 degree,and this way i will then have a 6 degree gap between PW and GW,and GW and LW. I did used to have a slight 'black hole' between my PW and 54 degree when i carried 54 + 58 degree wedges.Hopefully the 52/58 combo will now sort this out:



Vokey 2009 Spin-Milled wedges

52/08 and 58/04

Standard Length

Standard Lies

Tour Velvet .580 ribbed.



008-1.jpg









PUTTER



After being a SBST man for 10 years plus,i then dabbled with an arc-stroke and hence toe-hang putter to suit in 2009.This year im determined to give it a go for the whole year (We've heard that before),and this caught my eye:





Never Compromise Speed Control 2

34.5"

68 degree lie angle

    Thanks Ben - My 'new' 3 wood is the ridged retail version,not the 200 smooth.Ive not actually ever seen or hit a smooth,but had a retail ridged in the bag for 3 or 4 years when they first came out and loved it (Had an original Purple Ice in it then image/wink.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=';)' /> ).



    Ive not actually even seen it in person yet either.It arrived in the post while i was at work and the wife immediately took it to the re-finishers for me as i really wanted the bag completed by Xmas.

    No no no, not the smoothie, I hit one and I almost took out a cloud lol. Thee 200 tour ridgetop was the one I owned and loved : http://cgi.ebay.com/Tour-issue-Taylormade-...=item3358695ead



    It was like the retail model in look but was slightly different in terms of COG (i believe) and squarer face angle



    Great stick for a higher ss and those that spun the ball a little too much

    Who are the refinishers? I've been looking for someone good in the UK, but would like to see some of their work before sending a club off.

    Look forward to seeing the finished product.

    Irons are in the house image/yahoo.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':yahoo:' /> ,and have been re-gripped (See below) and ive also given the heads a 'Satin finish' (See my original 1st post).Ive done this before with various sets of irons.I HATE the 'chrome' ring on the rear of the X-20 Tour heads,and have found a run over with a foam sanding pad gets rid of the shine and gives them a uniform satin finish.You just need to be careful to "follow the grain" of the material to get a good finish. (Pics in original post)



    FOAM SANDING PAD: (Not sure if you guys in the US can get these - available in different grades of roughness and great for adding a grain to a non-chrome finish,sorting out the soles of fairway woods,finishing minor nicks after filing etc etc)



    010.jpg





    I also ripped of the original grips last night as soon as i got home from collecting the irons,and re-gripped with my favourite Tour Velvet .580 ribbed. Now im absolutely anal about my grips and have been known to have three or four goes at re-gripping any one club with brand new grips before im completely happy with its shape and size. I stretch my grips out 3/4" and basically stretch them out and get rid of alot of the grip material from the top and 'feed it down' so that the grip has less of a taper to it and is thicker in my right hand and thinner in my left hand. A set can take my quite a few hours to get right ! You can see the difference in shape and size below:



    009-1.jpg



    Quick pics of the wedges also added.After a bit of pondering and a test at the range,ive decided that to get my gaps right for me,and rather than rely on pure numbers - i actually need a 53 + 58 degree.Hence ive actually bought a 54 with a view to delofting it slightly (And hence reducing bounce),rather than buying a 52 and slightly increasing loft (And hence bounce).I shall be doing this myself later tonight.



    Soon as the three wood arrives,and i can get outside i will get a complete bag pic........















    While im here id like some opinions: Ive gotten into the habit of paint-filling the numbers of the soles of my irons in white,just because i like it and its different to most.So far i havn't touched the new sticks,but i do have pictures of a previous set i had done white.Is it a little bit too much 'bling' ????? Which do people prefer ?????

    Cha-Ching ! My 3 wood head has been finished today just in time for Xmas. Really,really pleased with the job,and about to stick the shaft in this afternoon.



    And the cost was a mere £23 - a bargain for the effort put in i reckon:

    Syer,



    I had no idea you were still in such good shape... I'm not sure if we can be friends anymore. They always have me play Santa Claus at partys, they don't have to worry about finding pillows or extra stuffing to put under my Santa Suit. image/laugh.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':lol:' />

    Yes,i have and do spend alot of time getting my bag 'right'.Last thing any of us need mid-round is excuses,nagging thoughts and worries over equipment issues.The games hard enough,and for me its another thing i havnt got to worry about if my clubs are 110% as i like them.The only excuse left is ME !!!!



    Even the little details are co-ordinated here.Can you tell i like the colour blue ???? Got any idea why my wife calls me a "Tackle tart" ????

    Best WITB ive seen since joining this site. Not a fan of callaway really but you put alot of thought and effort into this bag.



    Congrats on such a great setup and hope the golf is as good.




    I agree 100%. Syer found and set up exactly the clubs that give him the most confidence, and the scores are going to reflect it.



    Great job Sir!

    I saw that your driver length was 44,5 inches. Is this standard or have you got a custom made?

    When ordering new,i normally specify my preferred length of 44.5" and my preferred swing-weight of D2.Which is what i did with this driver as it was a custom order from Titleist with this shaft .If im making the club / re-shafting myself i'll just cut it down to 44.25" (Since the cap at the butt of the grip will take-up 1/4",and make the driver 44.5" overall when gripped).



    Ive been on 44.5" length for about 5 years now,and with just 1" or 1/2" off depending on manufacturer,my ball-striking has improved alot. Believe it or not i also think i hit it further (On average) with a shorter club due to much better contact more often than not.

    As with alot of taller people - i guess my arms are long too.So my finger-tip to floor distance is much the same as someone who's 5'8.And with most taller people,getting the right posture is mostly a balance between being technically correct,being comfortable and getting into a position where i can "sit my bum down" and get my legs out of the way to some degree. Hence all my clubs are standard length and lie.....





    And yes im a big guy.But a placid one too ! image/tongue.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':tongue:' />

    I'll leave it there for the moment.................




    That color of the glove is a little gay for a big man like you. Babyblue =) You should try dark blue or black! haha image/bb.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':bb:' />

    I reserve the right to make a quick change to the bag seeing as 1./ Auld Lang Syne hasnt actually signified the New Year starting yet,and 2./ Im a ho.



    Started of with an innocent trip to the shops in the City with the kids.Unfortunately (re: Fortunately) there was also a large golf shop nearby.



    As a Cameron Santa Fe style shape fan,and recent user of both a TP Mills soft-tail and Rife Cayman,this caught my eye and is one of the most eye-pleasing putters ive seen for along time.If it works or not is another matter....



    So....ive picked up and bagged a new out in the UK; Rossa Core Classic Daytona 6 image/wub.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':wub:' />



    Happy Ho'ing guys-n-gals !

    That looks like an amazing putter. Nice grab.
  • sevenfouratesevenfourate Devotee of OCD ENGLAND.Members Posts: 1,882 ✭✭
    Thanks buddy - not sure why but the pictures came out rubbish despite a good camera and numerous attempts ! (Reckon its me.lol !)



    Anyway - i think you have the same model available in the US,but it seems to be a different finish.Yours looks more 'gold satin' whilst ours is a "....Tuscan nickel finish".Kind of similiar but not quite as Dark as the 2009 Vokey wedges.
