  1. Hey all, I know you're frustrated with delivery dates on the new irons, but golf was closed at the time we placed orders for the first wave of these products and as soon as golf opened again and we started to get feedback / orders on these new irons in July, we ramped up production. So what you're seeing being delivered in September is the first wave with the second wave coming in October. I'm sure you all work in businesses where forecasting and planning against future demand is a challenge, throw in a global pandemic and things get a little more interesting. We're doi

  2. And I got mine!!! I was in a meeting when the shop called and thought to myself, they better not be calling to say it’s delayed because they told me I’d get it on 9/3. They left me a voicemail...I listened and lo and behold they called to tell me my special order has been delivered!!

  4. Well it’s a good day when you receive the call saying that your clubs are in! I just picked up my P770 4-PW and they are absolutely stunning in person. I currently play the P760s and really liked them and carded some of my best rounds last year but couldn’t pass on these. They are solid and sound and feel great. Time will tell if I can hit new lows but so far I’m happy. I have a sim at home and spent the past few days logging data on the 760s so I will soon know how these compare. I’m looking for a bit more forgiveness (for those early morning rounds), a bit more distance and higher flight. I’

  6. Good afternoon, gents. Long time but thought Id stop in for a cold one to say hello and share something on our 2nd favorite subject.... Food! Not sure if you guys like eggplant but I got a few from my moms garden along with a few tomatoes and made this. It was fantastic! The key is to definitely use vegetable oil instead of olive oil to sauté the eggplant. (But then I have a nice olive oil drizzle when it was almost done) Here is the recipe and a pic of the finished product , we used fresh tomatoes instead of canned and some fresh garlic. Super delicious...w

  7. People talk a lot about short game........and a lot about driving and putting...................but, really IMO, iron play is grossly overlooked when we break down our games. For the most part the club you're hitting into a green is an iron and hitting irons well means more GIRs. More GIRs means more putts for birdie and less putts for bogie and worse. I bet most of us could putt well enough that if we were on every green in regulation we could play par golf or very close to it. Developing a good short game is, essentially, developing a good back up plan; a plan B s

  8. @Conrad1953, our course is definitely a second shot course, although I still think that the tee shot is most critical. It doesn't have to be long, but it needs to be in the short stuff. The second shot is important because it determines whether you have a birdie chance or easy par on the well protected greens. Lots of risk:reward holes that tempt you with birdie or eagle opportunities, but punish risk takers with double or triple bogie routinely when things go awry. Regardless of where I have played over the years, I always figured I had a good round when I struck my irons wel

  9. I'm just speculating, but I think as management works their way through the transition to the new/old forum template that posts/threads can get lost with each successive reboot of the system as each update is made. I know that there were several lengthy threads, just like this one, over in the Classics section that have been lost, but can be searched for successfully using Google. I have no explanation for why that is, it just is.

  10. Dear Taylormade Why do us poor relations in the UK have to wait longer for our new shiny P770’s than the USA. Some lucky people will get them this week there and we always have to wait for the official release date. Your new irons are fantastic and I can’t wait but I will have to..... wait, not fair, disgruntled from the UK?

  14. A while back I posted about wanting to quit golf. I'd been playing and practicing very hard for nearly two years, and I was still a 20+ handicap. I'd spent thousands on lessons, and it just wasn't happening. The game wasn't fun anymore. Folks gave responses varying from "just take a breather" to "quit bro" to many giving earnest swing advice and even expressing a similar sentiment. I think it made people feel like they had a dark secret -- that they also wondered about quitting -- in common that they were too afraid to admit. I took the advice, distilled it, and took a few steps.

  16. Last night, I go to the basement net, doing one of the drills, and doing well. It dawns on me this would work really well with Tour Tempo. Instead of swing-set-thru it’s swing-cast-thru. Turn on 24/8 tones and do the drill to it, and the first one’s so flush. Well, of course I have to full swing, now. And the full swing was flush and loud! Did another and it was really loud. The third flush in a row was deafening. As I’m making flight plans for the 2021 US Senior Open in my head, I hit the fourth. Hello Mr. Shankapotamus! Hard off the right net bracket, careens in f

  18. Playing the wrong shots around greens is the big one. Only other mistake is wanting to go driver on a hole when 3W or less is the play. General rule of thumb is if you don't have 60 yards or less to work with you shouldn't use driver. This is a Decade teaching tool. He will still try to force that driver though. This weekend he takes a snowman on a 389 yard par 4 because he hits his drive into junk and couldn't find it. Leads to a 77. His reasoning for driver was to have 100-120 in. Doesn't matter if you have to retee. Day 2 he goes 3W and has a 9i in that he sticks to with

On the sole the 's' in Titleist is wrong.

  22. Trying it first is available on YouTube, you can google his "no turn cast drill" video, it explains the basic concept. He's offered that free forever. I think the level of in-depth explanation he gives in this video is worth more than he's actually charging. ?

  23. Try a new course. GolfNow has dozens probably in your area. I prefer playing by myself instead of playing with some pain in the neck. As far as the Op. If you play at a nice club then take up a martini lunch after the first 9. You might develop a drinking issue which will make golf apathy look like a minor concern.

  25. I despise this with a passion. For my 25 years in golf I have had to listen to golfers say "I can't move up to that set of tees, I'm not 65 yet!" What the holy heck do those two things have to do with each other whatsoever?!?!?! And even if they did, which is your great point @Sean2, at 50 the "senior" professionals effectively move up a set of tees from their normal tees. So why is a 64 year old golfer who carries it 190y with his driver so obstinate that they can't move up one set of tees from their normal tees? /rant

I started writing it out but I just never quite got around to making it into something post-able. Thankfully, things have really turned around though. Several things reduced my rounds played: - Lots of rain - A club member who I'd sometimes play 9 with moved away - Work picked up slightly And several other things have me more motivated: - I played in a Club event and won s

  33. I see my name was mentioned regarding this issue of surlyn vs urethane. To expand a little that additional spin allows every player to score better I say again, only if a player knows how to control the spin. I have been using the trufeel the last month because I have putted better with it than the top flite HC ball. They are very similar tee to green but I have been holing more putts so I am sticking with it for now. i play with a wide range of players in my casual group and most still play urethane though I regularly beat them with surlyn. I think any ball change requires time to pra

  34. Oh here's a good one. In our group's competition on Saturday, par 5 4th hole, wind behind me. Hit a really nice drive to the middle of the fairway, the pin is tucked back left and all the traps are on a line between the ball and the flag. Decided to play a safe shot right of the bunkers with enough club to get to the back edge. Well struck shot but with the wind, the ball hit the back edge and went into the deep rough long of the green. 3 very ugly pitches later, walked away with a solid bogey. Covered 525 yards in 2 shots and the last 10 yards in 4 shots.

  35. Man...where do I start? It is difficult to watch my son play golf because it is such a conundrum. He does very well in school, intelligent when talking and has good common sense. But on the golf course!!! All that goes out the window. Here are consistent problems. Line off the tee - like Hangontight said above. He is constantly taking the most difficult and precise line off the tee which of course leads to trouble. If it is a dogleg with a hazard on the inside of the dog leg he will be in the hazard...all the time. In a recent tournament, a short dogleg right Par 4 with wat

  37. Typically with my son it is a reliance on one type of chip or pitch instead of playing the correct one for the situation. He will get stuck on hitting a high chip with his lob wedge and use that shot throughout the round when something lower with his approach or pitching wedge would have been the more prudent choice. This will then lead to said club "disappearing" at his next practice so he can reinforce the other short game shots he should work on and remember.

  38. I think everyone knows the feeling of their knee being locked out 100%, and anyone who has played any kind of sport knows to avoid that feeling at all costs. If you try this move I think you'll find it relatively easy to maintain a little flex in your front knee.

  39. You should worry about shaft weight only if the symptoms of too little total club weight start to appear. Inconsistencies in your delivery (outside of normal), loss of feeling of where the club is in transition, an over the top/pull move that maybe wasn't there before, feelings of tempo inconsistency etc etc. There are many players that play at a very high level using quite light iron shafts, so don't worry that they are inherently "bad". Pay attention to your game and your tendencies and only change if you feel something is off.

  42. If you remove DJs insane performance (which it absolutely was), is -19 vs -13 all that much different once you factor in the conditions? In reality the weather was just as much a factor as setup. In SF it was cold, windy, and with no rain, where as Boston was hot, humid, less wind, and had ultra receptive greens due to the rain Watching guys hack out of tricked up rough every week would get really boring IMHO

  43. #1 - If OEMs only released a new driver model when they had a noticeable gain in performance to introduce, we would likely never see another new driver ?. Basically you need to look at each new release as an iterative process rather than something completely new. Ultimately more choices is a good thing and there is no one forcing you to buy something new. #2 - Across all major OEMs, there are far fewer instances of weight designs being reused from previous releases vs creating a new weight design for a new release.

  44. What many good golfers apparently don't understand is that amateurs have a swing dependent almost entirely on timing and that with the hands coming off during the backswing and tightening the wrong muscles ensure amateurs not only don't have a go to shot they also can't play for their miss because they can miss it anywhere.
