JLevitt9's WITB - Northern Trust Pro-Am Edition!

Updated 11/15 with Bag Shot. Page 2.



The driver search has been an ongoing challenge this year. Had an R11s V2 9* with Speeder 6.2 that was getting the job done effectively, but man I loved the looks of the RFX, so had to pull the trigger, plus I feel like I was truly leaving yards on the table with the V2. I was lucky to get the RFX shafted with the Fubuki K 60x, a shaft I've had my eye on since I saw a WRX'er with it in his RBZ 9* Tour crush it... image/wub.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':wub:' />



Recent additions besides the RFX include an R11 4 wood shafted with HD7. This one is going to be hard to kick out of the bag. I can smash it high off the tee, but can choke down and play a low cut into greens too.

Covers are Tiffany, Black and White, done by Havala Travis. Kapalua Hybrid cover I picked up a couple years back when I played the Plantation. That course will give you an appreciation for how good pros actually are. HHH Cammie cover is in the gamer rotation.

Irons: Mizuno MP-68's 5-PW and JPX 800 Pro 4 iron - Always been a blade guy. Love the look of these and the PX's are legit. I'm coming from S300's so love the extra height I get from these. The 4 iron is my go-to clue. Stupid easy to hit from the tee and very forgiving.

Wedges: Cleveland RTX 52* and 56*, Custom 588 60* with heel and toe grind and w/Spinner shaft - I've been searching for a 60* wedge to fall in love with ever since '99 and the original RTG Clevelands. This one is it! I'm a digger so the high bounce along with the heel and toe grind lets me really take a divot w/out fear of chunking it. This has been in the bag for 16 or so months and will be with me until the groves wear out.

Putter: Cameron Studio Select 2.7 - This was my buddies wife's putter. Bought it on a whim. The road rash is from when he got black out drunk and bounced it off a cart path. In his defense, he's like 5'6" and couldn't see the path over the mound by the green.

    Hey Josh,



    I must be off. I thought you were gaming a bag of Miuras at the Byron round?



    How's that Myazaki feel in the 3wood? It's a shaft I'm considering. Does it perform well during easy swings and all out attack on the ball swings? Consistent? I've got a black in my driver that I love.

  • jlevitt9jlevitt9 Members Posts: 604 ✭✭
    @finalist - not me! Snope was rockin the Vega's but no Miura's to be found. MIyazaki 83x is cool but the real winner is the 43x. I can pull the 83 on hard swings but it's pretty anti-hook. I'm a believer in the brand and its offerings, plus, I'm sure you can find a pull on ebay for pretty cheap.



    @kekoa - Back to TCC and dodging TR marshals asking about who broke 3 windows on the back side!!! image/bye.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':wave:' /> Rematch!

    I like it a lot, although I only have 5 or so rounds under my belt with it. No snap hooks thus far, which is a good sign. When paired with the RFX head it's definitely one of the best feeling combos I've hit. Sitting at D3 at 44.5 currently.

    RFX continues to be a solid player. Threw a PX 5.5 in the 56....Dynamic Gold Wedge flexes were killing me.

    What's good buddy?! The past few months have been rough, but rounds of 74 (blues) and 70 (whites) have me optimistic. The latter round included 29 putts and nothing missed inside 5 feet. Using an SC Cali Monterrey, which I've always liked the look of.



    The G25 is looking very attractive recently based on numbers on the simulator. Also will prob throttle back to a Stiff tipped rather than a straight X in the driver.

    New woods should be ready this week. I pulled the trigger on the G25 with Tour Stiff. Early results are good, but missed are low and left. Tossing the Fubuki K into it. Also, new FW wood on the way. image/golfer.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':golfer:' />



    Recently became a "member" at Arroyo Trabuco down in south Orange County. The course places a premium on accuracy off the tee with a few doglegs that you can blow past into a hazard. I think the new FW will be a solid player.

    G25 with Fubuki K is a solid addition. I have it at 45", and added a bit of lead tape to get the swing weight to D2/D3. Also set it to "+" and have been really striping it the past two rounds. Lots of confidence.



    Here's a recent swing I took. This one found the fairway. image/smilie_ping.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':smilie_ping:' />

    The Midwest representing! Good to hear from you, Greg. I hit the G30 (stock shaft) in the launch monitor and did see their claims of 1-2 mph swing speed increase validated. Ping makes such solid equipment, so I anticipate one day I will eventually get the itch and trade up, but I am very happy for now.



    We're due some revenge to certain Alani members this year!

    Only club that isn't really clicking is my 56* Cleveland RTX CB. The SM5's have my attention...anyone tried the Gold Nickel finish, and if so, how do they like it?

    I recently picked up the Gold Nickel SM5's and am really enjoying them. I was kind of nervous because it seemed like no one had them, talked about them, or knew the existed.

    Great to hear. Seems like everyone is gravitating toward the black/raw finish, but I think the Gold Nickel is sharp. Playing my first round with it this Sunday. Congrats on the eagle...can't argue with results!
