    Thanks! I do have a place where I roll it down there, from the far end of the basement down the hallway to the stairs, probably ends up being close to a 25-30 foot putt.

    Midseason August update!



    So started the season off great, continued on the momentum from the end of last year and was cruising along until a few weeks in the middle hung me up. Little bit of a cast crept in the swing and took a few weeks to get the release back to normal, but was able to figure it out. Made some changes after really not getting the feel for the irons. They worked fine for me, but the feel was just missing and then I wasn't able to move the ball much with the RBTs as well as I could barely figure out where I hit it on the face. So I decided to go for a change! I really wanted to go back to the similar profile and feel of the 2009 TPs that I was playing last year, so decided to go for the 2014 MCs.

    So far so good with the 300. I love it, and am really enjoying cruising around in it. Its big, stylish, comfortable, has a good Beats system…and red leather!

    Ill know more the more I play them, but so far so good! The shape they have is really 588ish to me, and the finish and look is really nice. They have a nice turf interaction and good feel to me. In limited chances, the spin and touch seems on par with anything Ive played recently as well. All in all, especially for the 20 a piece I found them for can't be happier with them. Look forward to playing them more. Honestly, do not be afraid to give them a shot.

    Thanks Joel! Let me see what the schedule looks like, but if not next week how about the following?

    Thanks dude! I really enjoyed the graphite in my Scotty and figured to give it a shot with this one too, but this was harder to match or have something that went well with it. Luckily had a deep red colored graphite shaft around and it fit so went for it. Im really happy with how it turned out. Didn't realize until afterwards that it is a nice blend of 49er colors too. I plan to do some paint fill on the irons when I get a chance to grab some paint.



    Such a little adjustment, but it really changes the feel. Almost like a pseudo counter weight with the head feeler a bit heavier than when in a steel shaft and then the super stroke balances it out a bit.

    First round with the clubs was a interesting one lol…..



    Realized all the irons were poorly put together and all the heads would spin off. Luckily didn't lose any heads down the range or anything, so had to rebuild them and have them curing now and slid some new niions on them. Looking forward to playing them again Tuesday.



    As for the putter, so far so good. Its a similar feel to the Scotty, but a bit clickier and has more pop. Holed some midrange putts and had some good lags with it.



    The wedges were good as well, actually had one of the better short game rounds this year with them. They have really good spin, as well as touch and are easy out of bunkers and most lies I had. I look forward to playing them more.

    Irons all put together and redone, and threw the niions on there. Have the bottom hand built up near the butt (thank you lifetime of baseball) and then enough build up to feel in between midsize and oversize. Really liked how they turned out.

    Hope those irons work out for you. I'm still enjoying them immensely. Also, I was inspired by your putter, the finish mainly, to go look more into Bettinardis and found a few designs that I like, so I might pick one up soon if the prices are right.

    Puppet, Ive been really pleased and impressed with the Betti so far. I know putting is subjective, but Ive had no issue changing from the Cameron to it. Its a smooth feel, and great roll but it also is a bit more solid of a strike than the Scotty. More of a pop and click, as opposed to like absorbing and pushing if that makes sense…..



    Id highly recommend checking one out, with the stash of gear you have you could easily swap some extras for one to give a shot. Ill let you check mine out when we play a round.

    Putter progress: started well and its still going fine, but just need to get used to the heavier head on the Betti. I also reshafted it with another red shaft, but just a bit longer to have it playing at 33.5. Its a pretty good difference to the Cameron I was using, so Im just practicing and finding that the Betti needs much much less of a stroke to send it anywhere. Blew a few 10 footers and in way past the whole last time I played lol…...

    Not looking good for the Hopkins…...



    One range session and one round and the TP are stepping into the bag. Nothing wrong with the Hopkins, but the TP just feel a bit lighter and easier to get through. The one thing, the Hopkins kind of felt clunky and heavy on touch shots…..not sure what exactly it was. But the TPs were really good for me….and to be honest, the 52* is the main reason for the swap, it covered that 120-75 yard range for me with ease. Never ever been able to hit a GW well, but this one paired with my swing being in a nice groove lately has really impressed me.

    Bags coming together nicely Bubba. On a Niners note I have no idea what to expect this year. I honestly could see anything between 4-12 and 10-6. I think the first 4 games will be the key. They could easily be 0-4 or 3-1

    I'm with you. Defense looks really good actually, and I like the concepts that Mangini has used so far. Lots of blitzes and pressure, and the young secondary is looking very good. Johnson and Acker have really stepped up and shown they can play. Again, the issue lies with the offense. Nothing they've shown has instilled any confidence, besides Carlos Hyde. Guapo looks very very good. That being said, I think once the oline settles in a bit things might look better on the offensive side of the ball.

    So tinkering a bit as fall comes in, and one thing that I wanted to check into was possibly seeing if I could move a 4w in place of my 2 hybrid that I have been playing for a while. I have recently put my driver back in the bag, and have seemingly fixed my issues I had with it. So driver, 12* mini and looking to lock in that next spot…..My 2 hybrid sits in the 220-235 range and kinda plops without much roll, so was looking to maybe get something that could roll a bit after it hits while staying in that general distance range.



    I went with a Stage 2 3HL RBZ and stuck a TS Speeder 7.2 in it. Hit it today at the range and took a minute to get used to it but once dialed in, it was producing a really nice flighted ball and was hitting about the perfect range I was looking/hoping for. Time will tell more, and when I get it on course to check the roll but so far I was liking it. Was messing with the settings, but currently had it clicked in at 17.5* loft.

    Some updates and fiddling:



    Got a different putter, Ive been getting used to the Queen Bee some more but had the opportunity to land a Scotty just to have in the background if anything should happen. I grabbed a Squareback and have been putting with it, same feel I got accustomed to with my Newport I let go a while back. Shell be a good one to keep around just for putting at the house and maybe if things act up with the Queen! I did the paintfill myself over a slow weekend, still touching it up a bit and finishing it:

    Finally throwing up a swing video! Swinging a 7 iron.



    First thing is first, that is exactly why you should bring your iPod to the range lol. Classic stranger range tips to another stranger.



    Lastly, swing is grooved in pretty good currently with some changes I made to the grip about a month ago. I still pop a little bit through contact, but Ive always had that….seemingly very difficult to eliminate apparently. Other than that, I want to try and work more on coincidentally a bit more lag and really throwing the butt of the club at the ball until the last moment, but thats taking time.



    Any thoughts or commentary, feel free!

    Late season moves/additions:



    So toward the end of the year I knew I had two clubs I was wishy washy on and was up for swapping them out. The Putter and the 2 hybrid.



    The Queen Bee was a really cool putter and I wanted to love it so bad. But it was a different change from my trusty Newport Custom I had, it was heavier and more clicky and I just couldn't figure the touch and feel out. I decided that before the turkey shoot to go back to what I knew….and went the Scotty Newport route. Almost instantly, the feel, touch and confidence was back to what I knew and was comfortable with. I am glad I made to move back!



    Got a dark grey graphite shaft in it and my counterweighted Superstroke Ryder Cup 3.0:

    Nice putter. I have the exact same one, except I had a professional adjust the loft/lie to allow for a consistent roll when you forward press. It is a money making machine. image/smile.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' />

    RAMMING SPEED! These are my soldiers that I am taking into battle with me for the upcoming 2016 season.



    Finished last year on a real solid note, and didn't make too many changes but just a bit of tweaking on some things I had been wanting to adjust. Here is what made the cut:



    Continuing with the Newport. I made a change to the betti for a bit last year, super cool outer but just never could get that feeling and confidence back that I had with the Scotty. Finally found one I liked and pulled the trigger. Going to the grave with it. This winter was able to do some paintwork on my own……..
