  1. my AOA is (-2) my path is 3* out to in for the hosel to be +2 and upright would I just move it to the “higher” +2 setting or is there a different setting that makes it more upright?
  2. Alright. With all that’s going on in the world an in person driver fitting isn’t happening anytime soon and the driver I bought over the winter is killing my game. facts about me -5 handicap -102 mph swingspeed -AOA -2 -shot shape=straight to a 5-10 yard fade -tempo=quick and sometimes way too quick currently playing a Taylor Made Sim 9* with a Ventus Black 7S. i love the feel but that’s pretty much it. What is normally my strength has become my biggest weakness. In 10 rounds this year I’m averaging about 2-3 fairways a round. Rest of the game is strong. I’ve resorted to a 3 wood as of late and have returned to my normal consistent self but would really like to hit a driver again. with the Sim my miss is a 30 yard cut now...well that’s pretty much 2 out of 3 shots now. I’ve moved the weight all the way to the heal and also added 1* of loft and not much better. What’s everyone think? Shaft too stiff? Too little loft? most likely going to be stuck buying something on a guess. Money isn’t an issue. What does everyone think?
  3. Alright before I begin I promise this is not a blade vs CB talk but here it goes. I forever have struggled with the choice of the iron to play. I have carried a handicap as low as a 2 and as high as a 7. I am not a long hitter by any means. I would say my 7 Iron goes roughly 155 yards. What I struggle with is choosing an iron. I know I need to commit to an iron to make an improvement long term but that's where you come in. Option #1 Players cavity back. I always gravitate this way as I feel I have total control. I have no issues hitting the 7 iron - wedge but the longer irons seem to have a little drop off in consistency and overall distance. The turn interaction is amazing for my shallow angle of attack. Iron most recently played in this head style (Mizuno JPX Tour 900) Option #2 Players game improvement This is usually what I fall into when I think the extra distance and forgiveness would help me. They go a full club longer and launch higher. I don't feel I have the control as much to place the ball in the exact spot i want but I can get the ball around. I don't struggle with the occasional hot shot and the hook. The wider sole becomes a nuisance as I get flat and I can't pinch the ball as crisply as I'd like. Club most recently played (ping i210) Option #3 Now this was my attempt to merge the 2...I tried the AP2 and it felt like I never really fell in love with them. Wider soles and high bounce didn't work well and the lack of feel and total control also wasn't great. It didn't excel in any area but it also didn't have a glaring weakness either. Kinda meh. So I guess with all this being said what way would you go. My ultimate goal is to commit to a club long term and ultimately get back.down to a 2 handicap or better. What route would you go? And before anyone says I need to get fit understand that all 3 options listed we're fit

  5. Would the tensei pro blue 60 fit the bill?
  6. I would prefer something that is a custom option for Titleist as I am going to get a TS driver
  7. GD tour AD-DI 6 (too soft= too much spin) AD-IZ 6 ( better but tons of spin if it has any fade) Atmos Blue 7 ( better numbers but trouble with consistency as I lose the head. Cannot feel the head load)
  8. Looking for some shafts that fits this criteria. Stiff butt Stiff tip Soft mid 62-67 grams Torque in the 3.2-3,7 range Need some help with lowering spin without lowering launch. Don’t play well with soft butts and need some shaft loading to help control tempo
  9. Maybe a little different from others... -MP-14 -Titleist 990 -Ping S55 -Titleist 681.
  10. Has anyone tried the custom grinds on Ping irons? I’ve always like the “I series” irons in regards to consistency and and ball flight but struggle with the wide sole. I was considering ordering a set with either the back grind or the bounce grind. Any feedback from anyone using these bounce options on a set of their irons?
  11. Looking at a new shaft. I have been reading some old posts and was wondering if either of these shafts are built for someone with a quicker more aggressive transition. SS is right at 98-102. From what I could dig up it sounds like someone like me needs to avoid soft butt shaft but beyond that I was a little uncertain. Thanks in advance
  12. I thought they are both improved in the looks and feel department. Unfortunately ball speed is slow compared to the Callaway products.
  13. I do intend on a fitting but was curious as to what would help a person like me. I am certain on the putt being pulled as I set up and do gated set up with an eyeline mirror. I wasn’t sure if I needed a putter with more toe hang to,assist in the face opening more on my backstroke or what would best assist me.
  14. Alright, I am in the market for a putter. Here is what I know. When I had my stroke measured my stroke falls somewhere between straight back straight through and slight arc. I have roughly 3* of arc. When I used a large mallet that’s face balanced I have a tendency to pull putts. Right now I am using a center shafted patter with 45* of toe hang and things just don’t feel right. Any recommendations? My handicap fluctuates between 2-6 depending on the time of year.
