11 Under's WITB - ***New grips and a new wedge***

11under11under (Insert golf phrase here)Members Posts: 453
My name is Des and I am from the Seattle area. I have been playing golf since I was 5, but I have only been playing seriously for about 5 years. I am a 10 9 handicap at the moment. Here is my bag:



(Sorry for the bad photos. I will try and upload some new ones later on.)



I am currently swinging, and have been for the last 4 years the Adams A7 irons with the True Temper Players Lite shafts (S-Flex). I am pretty happy with then at moment. They are super long and are pretty buttery for not being forged. I am definitely looking into getting the I25’s when they come out (I talked to one of the Ping Reps that came into my work (I work at a driving range/pro shop) and he said that we could expect big changes from the I20’s to the I25’s).

For my driver I have a 2009 Taylormade Burner 10.5* that I picked up brand new for $30. I just have the stock 49-gram regular shaft in it. I know you guys are probably laughing your heads off at the fact that I have such a puny shaft in it, but I figure if I hit long and straight 90% of the time it is the right fit for me.

When it comes to wedges I have the classic Vokeys. The lofts on them are 52*, 56*, 60*. The 52* and the 60* are SM3’s, and the 56* is an SM1. The 60* is by far my favorite club in by bag. I am deadly with it around the green.

The hybrid I am playing right now is actually fairly new to my bag. It’s a Titleist 910H 19* with the Diamana 90-gram S-Flex. I picked it up at a garage sale for $10. So far I like it a lot more than my previous hybrids (Adams A7’s).

I have a Nike Dymo 3W that has a UST Mamiya AXIV Core 70-gram S-Flex shaft in it. I am pretty hot and cold with it so it doesn’t come out of the bag that often.

Now, the best for for last…



For my flatstick I have Ping Redwood Zing 303s that I got a steal of deal on ($70 and it only had like 10 rounds on it). I really like it’s look at address and the way it feels off the face. I just recently put the SuperStroke 3.0 on it and I am in love.

My practice area at home. It's nothing special. Sorry the photo is kind of "Instagramed" out.

All of my clubs together (Minus the Titleist hybrid).

Well, I will definitely do my best to try and keep this up to date. Feel free to ask any questions you have.

    Pretty big backyard too.

    Great bag! Not hating at alll but i think your the only guy on here to have stiff flex irons and a regular flex driver! Can't argue with that handicap though, you'd kick my a**....

    Haha, thanks. I have enough self esteem as it is. I don't X-flex shafts to boost my confidence.

    So before I waste your time I am just going to let you know that my bag is pretty plain and simple. I don't have any exotic shafts or tour only putters. I am just a college student who likes to play golf and PAYS for all his own gear.



    First of all my name is Des, I am 19 and I am from the Seattle area. I have been playing golf since I was 5, but I have only been playing seriously for about 5 years. I am a 10 handicap at the moment and hoping to be 6 by the end of next summer. Here is my bag:

    Thanks for all the comments everyone. And I actually really like it a lot. It doesn't seem that heavy to me and clubs don't clank as much as I thought they might. In my opinion this is probably one of the best bags you can buy.

    Most recent swing video from July. Been working really hard at getting the dip out of my swing.



  • 11under11under (Insert golf phrase here) Members Posts: 453
    Short little video I made with a friend in May of a chipping contest we had at my make shift chipping green. I am only in it for one shot and my swing is extremely flat for some odd reason, and I over shoot it like crazy image/nono.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':nono:' /> . We are going to make another one at Thanksgiving (we will probably be in full rain gear though).

    Hey man, you've got a good bag, don't let anyone tell you otherwise.



    Are you get better though, that regular flew in the driver will give you trouble. Match the club to the swing and not the other way around.



    Your swing is good. I think that you don't have a lot of hip turn on your backswing and that some of your flatness can be fixed, just work on extending your arms out on your backswing and the hip and shoulder turn should follow naturally

    Near the end of the summer I took on a little project of repainting my backup driver. I haven't gotten around to doing the touch up painting yet, but here are some pictures of it so far.



    Here it is before.

    What kind of paint did you use to refinish your Nike driver? Looks real slick!

    Nice to see another paint project. Looking forward to see the final result image/smile.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' /> How long do you let it cure?

    I´ve done a few clubs lately and I´m so happy I did. So far it seems like the paint holds up great.

    I just went to Home Depot and bought Krylon Flat Black Outdoor spray paint. I think it was only $4.99.

    I did 3 coats and let it sit about an hour in between each coat. And after I finished I brought it inside and let it cure over night.

    I have been doing calculus for the last few hours (I sure do love double and triple integrals) and just went brain dead. I decided to check my email in spite of this. I got an email from the Washington State Golf Association informing me that my handicap index has dropped down to a single digit for the first time. It is now a 9.6.

    Lost my old Nike players towel last time I played. I am looking for a new one now and I want to get something cool. I am thinking either a 59guy towel or a Bettinardi towel. Any suggestions?
