    **** sweet pics man!



    Looking forward to seeing it when it's fully complete. Any thoughts on moving into 718's, or grooves still got quite a bit of life left in them?




    Grooves are still sharp, but yeah I've had thoughts of going 718. If I could sell my 716Cb's and 716Ap2's I'd definitely pick up some new sticks. Really leaning towards selling the 716T-MB 2i and snagging a P790 2i UDI with a HZRDUS black 105X. Might just be the next purchase.

    I imagine that selling 716 AP2/CB set's would be easy. Have you tried the 718 CB yet? I haven't really hit any of the CB models so I have no idea, but it seems like they've made good strides gen to gen in improvements in their irons.



    The P790 UDI 2 iron and TMB seem very popular. I don't think you can wrong with either, I imagine it'd just come done to look and feel, they both probably play similar (lol I've got no idea I can't bring the heat for 2 iron utility).

    Finally!!!!!! I've received my new goodies and snapped a few quick photos last night after I got everything transferred into my new bag and such. Figured it couldn't hurt to document it for posterity.

    Thanks man! There's obviously 16 clubs in that bag. I can rotate 5w/3h/2i into the 14th club spot, they're just all displayed together for the purposes of photos at the moment.



    Also, I went through my golf ball stockpile and found at least 8 dozen proV1's, V1x's, Z-Star's, B330's, and Chrome soft's. I figure I should be all set for this year and next too most likely.

    image/sorry.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':sorry:' /> My bag is no longer ALL Titleist.... There is a TM club ordered that will hopefully get plenty of play off the tee this year. P790 2i UDI with HZRDUS Black 85X 2+ upright 2* strong (yes 1iron loft) GolfPride Red/Black MCC+4 grip +2 wraps on top, 3 wraps on bottom. 40" playing length. I got an absolutely killer deal on it and it was just too good to pass up. Should have it here and in the bag before too long!

    That's cool. Hey if it beats the club that it replaces that's all that matters.



    So as far as the new bag, its awesome right? The zippers and materials....it will last forever. It's a "staff bag" but honestly isn't much bigger than a normal cart, like last gen staff bag which was the size of Volkswagen Beetle.

    Interested to hear you thoughts on the new UDI 790.



    EDIT: I just reread that post and you "strengthened" the loft. Reading it quick I assumed you went 17* to 19*, but 17* to 15*.....**** lol. Hitting bullets off the tee, especially if it's windy, it should just bore through it.

    Haha honestly I liked the larger staff bag. There's a couple things I liked better about the old bag. Larger top cuff (10.5" vs 9.5") and all closures were zippers. This has a couple magnetic that I'm not sure how much I like that.



    As far as the P790, I really wanted to like the 2i Tmb but the x100 shaft I felt like I was leaving something on the table.. we shall see.

    Don't get me wrong the older looked awesome but man sometimes I'd get a bit self conscious I guess just because the 10.5" was so large and "staff bag looking" (that make sense?). Honestly what I love about the bag is whether its 40* or 95* I can absolutely everything in it that I may need so that's awesome.



    Sometimes my driver/3 wood will snag when trying to put it the bag due to the 9.5" cuff I assume, but its seldom (basically the grips cause friction from fitting in nice and loose compared to the 10.5" bag). The old bag I had 2 or 3 zipper pull tabs break and that was annoying, but now there metal pull tabs seem more durable, and the actual zipper/interlock locking part is much bigger and seems way more durable than every other bag I've owned.



    I too was nervous about the magnetic closure and didn't want to put valuables like my car keys and stuff like that in them but now after realizing it wont open unless I open it I now really like them. Especially for anything I may need to grab quickly, tees, etc.

    Just bought the same bag as part of upgrading to 718 AP2’s. Our first medal of the season is on Sunday and know I’ll either some of my wet/winter weather gear on or it’ll be in the bag along with winter mitts, wool beanie and food/drinks for 18.

    Haha yeah I did actually. I got out and played 18 Saturday down here. Course still had some snow in spots and was soggy. Hit the wedges fantastic. Hit driver great all day. Iron game and such needs ALOT of work right now.



    First wedge shot of the year. Was 115yds out. Pin tucked front right and I was In right rough behind a tree. Hit a low cutting gap wedge around the tree to 3 feet. I'm excited for better conditions and a good year

    i have a new driver shaft, but have not put it into play as of yet. The HZRDUS Black is still doing the job extremely well. Absolutely piped my first swing of the day right down the middle of the fairway. There was a bunker jutting into fairway at about 255 that had me questioning my choice to hit driver in the 40* temps.... I flew the bunker by 20 yards.

    Finally got to play 18 for the 1st time today on our course, but only the back is open (played it twice) and it was absolutely bone dry. The front is different story and doesn't dry out like the back. But it was fun, yet awkward hitting actual shots at 1st. Not sure about you guys, but our weather is turning back to $h!t here for about week.



    T, you join anywhere or just greens fee it throughout the season? Any New York State tourneys in the near future your playing in?

    Going to hold my handicap at Saratoga National, but play all over. I joined a 9 hole league on Tuesday afternoons to keep the game sharp at a semi new course to me. (Frear Park) and yes I have signed up for several NYS Amateur series tournaments. The first of which is 5/11 at the Kaluhyat course at Turning stone resort, then #2 is at Leatherstocking at the Otesaga Resort in Cooperstown. #3 is in June at En-Joie golf club in Endicott (home of the Dick's Sporting goods open on the champions tour) then I'll be playing july 30th at shaker Ridge country club and August at Colonie country club. The Mid-Am qualifier for the albany region is at a course I know EXTREMELY well at Eagle Crest golf course on 9/6. I'm sure the capital district golf championship and a few other local tournaments will be thrown in there as well.



    As far as fun trips, July looks to be busy. I'm heading out to cape cod for vacation and will be looking to play a few courses all over New England... then to Bethpage black hopefully July 28th or 29th.

    My club (Saratoga National) is opening on April 12th, but yeah as you said Rymail, the weather looks terrible the upcoming week. We were supposed to open on 4/6, obviously that wasn't happening. Everything seems so damp. I was hoping when I got back from a nice 5 day Florida trip in early March that were were a few weeks away! If either of you guys would like to get out with me at some point this season, just let me know. We have a lot of fun member / bring a guest events. I'll set up a PM with us soon and we can discuss.

    Togatown, definitely would love to get out a time or 2 with you around national. I've got some vouchers coming for early season golf already there. $65 is a whole lot better than $195

    Yeah I'd be interested in meeting somewhere and playing.

    Sounds like you have your season pretty well planned out, I'm envious of that. I imagine planning it that far in advance it gives you time to kinda prepare prior to each tournament especially if some of the courses are setup quite a bit different then what you normally play. I always "want" to play in more tournaments but it just never happens, we just don't have that many around here. There not something I ever plan on winning but its just a lot of fun to do.

    My problem is that I tend to over think my tournaments. I plan every tee shot, what club to hit, what approach yardage I want, etc. Everything before I ever step on the first tee. I play better going in blind sometimes so I don't let my head get in the way.

    I can see how that could be problem.

    * Situation and your swing that day could possibly put some doubt into it, or 2nd guessing.

    * Also where you stand score wise, if it's a 2 or 3 day tournament, and if your on good stretch holes or the opposite and you need to force the issue to make up strokes etc.



    I can see what you mean though, especially being a longer player it must just bring many more options off the tee. Luckily for me and my 100-102 mph club head speed just allows me to hit driver on 90% of par 4's and 5's so it makes planning a bit easier. Since I'm short its always just hit driver image/biggrin.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':D' />

    Togatown, definitely would love to get out a time or 2 with you around national. I've got some vouchers coming for early season golf already there. $65 is a whole lot better than $195




    You guys would be my guests; no worries. Use the vouchers though, they are a great deal. I'm thinking sometime like mid-late June would be great for a round, the course is normally playing nice and fast by then.

    i'll keep you guys posted. We also have a cool spring event that might be fun; again, I'll get the dates for some things and PM you guys!

    Of course! You and I also have a mutual buddy - Joe C. out in Syracuse.

    Might be fun to try and get us all together.



    Good luck in your events; keep us posted here!
