  1. I used to be on this forum all the time, played golf 70-100 rounds a year, had +2.8 handicap. As of today, haven't hit a golf ball since July 2019 and those 18 holes were the first I played in about 14 months before that. Life happened and priorities changed. I still love the game, but just haven't been able to find time to play, practice or even dust off my bag (sitting on a shelf in the garage under some 2x4s).
  2. Hi Tai - I've been gone for probably 3 years from GolfWRX. I don't really play golf anymore - just got busy with other stuff. Anyway, thought I'd look for your WITB. Don't care about your clubs, but hope your family is well ... the last time I was on here, I think you were expecting your first child. Hope all is well. Mark
  3. I haven't been on GolfWRX for years, but I'm still rocking Titleist 915 D4 with Oban Proto V430 X flex

  6. Where does one bind for sale on facebook?
  7. There is another version of the Teryllium, called the GenX (short run, so may be hard to come by) I thought you were going with Newport only, not Newport Beach There are two version of the Mil-Spec and four weight/length specs in each, so that's eight Newport putters right there.
  8. Whoa ... those MBs have had the sweet spot struck by someone who knows how to golf their ball. Nice!
  9. Love my TS3 ... very very good driver. I was surprised honestly.
  10. These 680 MB raw irons are awesome, but needed quite a bit of lead tape to get to D3 when I installed Modus3 125S shafts with GP Tour Velvet Align grips at standard length.
  11. MilSpec putter, TS3 and 917F2 fairway The rest of the bag has been pretty constant
  12. Byron's putter head milling is outsourced. He then receives them (roughly milled) and then he starts his work to soften edges by hand in his shop on his sanding belt, hand stamps them, torches or finishes them to the customer spec, then shafts them up, does the loft/lie, grips, paintfill and then ships them. At least you know Byron himself is the person holding that putter to the sanding belt when he's putting that Tai treatment on that head. The mill design though is IP to the putter designer, so it's not like he just gets heads from some place in China and gets whatever they ship him. Just makes sense. Does anyone on here actually think it matters the location of the CNC milling machine or who "owns it"? These are big heavy machines that are a big capital investment that would require serious volume to justify the cost each month. Even tour putters are CNC milled on a machine programmed to cut out a 009 or Trisole NP2 or Timeless or Tour Rat shape (using Scotty as an example). If given the plans, any CNC milling machine could cut the same exact shape. Why does anyone on here think these are somehow magical? The steel is the same, the milling happens the same way, it's only after these steps (assuming a good head shape), that the putter maker adds their value in either finishing them to either a rough (cheap) or easy (think Odyssey), or fine finish (like Scotty or micro-putter makers) with perfectly brushed finishes (like a Rolex Submariner), incredible transparent paintfill, nice engraving (or in the case of tour putters hand stamping). There are some truly "tour only" heads that Scotty makes - like 009, Timeless, NP2 trisole (used to make a retail version). However, many of the tour putters are just a stock head with less milled engravings (leaving them blank for hand stamping) ... then someone finishes them by hand, shapes them at the belt by hand, stamps them (hammer striking a stamp several times to get the correct depth and mushrooming) including the highly desirable circle T, does the paint fill, and then shafts them up, bends for loft/lie, installs a grip (sometimes with circle T) and puts a putter cover on with circle t stitching. The above reasons is why I got out of tour putters years ago and have just stuck with high quality putters like Studio Stainless or Mil-Spec, and invest in a good grip and my alma mater headcover. Putts just as good. Yes, you won't get an "ooh aah" from the bag boy at the end of the round when wiping your clubs, but who cares.
