Tensei CK Pro White 60S (used with NDMC Plus4 Align Midsize and small cosmetic defect near adaptor) - $175 All prices are OBRO and include USPS shipping with tracking info included. Please add $5 for shipping west of Mississippi.
  2. One item for sale today: a Rose & Fire putter cover, embroidered with the Naval battle cry “DONT GIVE UP THE SHIP” This is a unique item and is definitely makes for a great gift or conversation piece. These are $75 at retail and currently on back order. Let’s say SOLD.
  3. At the end of the day, there will always be long hitters and short hitters. Even at the highest levels of golf, there are shorter hitters who have won titles and made a boatload of cash because they've become the best wedge players and putters in the world. My 2 cents: become a better player from 50 yards and in. If you're going to be missing greens, you're going to need a reliable short game. Secondly, get back in the gym. Strength and flexibility are the recipe for speed. I promise if you find the right workout plan, you'll be able to pick up at least *some* speed.
  4. I might get some heat for this, but I use an interlocking grip with my driver and fairway wood and an overlapping grip with my irons and wedges. This is a recent change and has really helped me with control and general clubface awareness with the longer sticks. Would be curious if anyone else has experimented with two different grips. I realize this is rare/unorthodox but it's what works for me
  5. Could you post a picture of the Mizuno putter at address please?
  6. They were just a little on the large side in both length and width. If they were dress shoes, I’d keep them, but I prefer a more snug fit in golf shoes.
  7. All prices are OBRO and include CONUS shipping with tracking information provided. Add $5 for shipping west of the Mississippi please. 1. G/FORE Gallivanters. White pebble leather and “twilight” blue soles. Size 12WIDE. Pics tell the story. Never been worn outside and absolutely mint condition. Still in original box. These have massaging insoles as well. Bought them for a trip to Pinehurst and was gutted that they don’t fit. Asking $160 $150 SOLD 2. Bettinardi Queen Bee 6. I would conservatively rate the condition at 8-8.5/10. The putter is 35” long and has 3* of loft. This putter was professionally bent to 74* lie angle and has a brand new 15” Bettinardi/Lamkin deep etch counterbalance grip installed. This putter was built to play similarly to Viktor Hovland’s putting method. Asking $275 $250
  8. Interested in the Vokey if you want to sell separately
  9. All items are OBRO and include CONUS shipping. Please add $5 west of MS. 1. Bettinardi QB6. Gamed for half a season but in very good shape. Some paintfill missing from sole and grip is a little dirty. 34”. Asking $299 2. Mitsubishi Chemical Tensei AV Raw White 75s. Titleist adaptor. Condition is BNWT. Asking $OLD
  10. Two items up for sale. All prices are OBRO and include shipping and tracking. Add $5 west of Mississippi please. Cash is king, but will entertain trade offers - worst I can say is no. 1. Odyssey Stroke Lab Big 7 Arm Lock. 40”, standard loft and lie. Includes a brand new JumboMax grip, which alone is $35. Took this to the course literally once and decided it wasn’t for me. Yours for $180 2. Fairway & Green 1/4 Zip from Merion Golf Club. Color is heather blue and size is XL. This is in great shape and was hardly worn. Yours for $75
  11. On the metrics, I have a tendency to launch the ball a little higher, which brings down the smash factor and the spin (if the ball rides up the face and launches too high, you aren’t compressing it, and without compression you won’t have optimal spin). So this is mainly working on technique and getting reps in. I’ve experimented with ball position and wrist conditions to get my numbers in a good range. I have no idea where the fractions thing came from, but I think it’s because my full 60* goes 100 yards. So 4/5=80yds , 3/5=60yds and so on. This is what works for me, but there’s a million ways to go about it. Just important to have a system that gives you some degree of predictability assuming you’re practicing the same thing over and over. Also important to remember that at the end of the day, the wedge game depends a lot on feel and you don’t want to be a robot. Turf conditions, wind, precip, temperature and other variables can impact your “stock” numbers so you have to have intuition and play with feel at the end of the day (hence why this is great work to get done over the winter!) good luck!
  12. This is also my goal for the winter, and practicing with a launch monitor has made a huge difference for me. You are right that different players have different approaches. A lot of players think about a "clock face". I carry a 52, 56, and 60 and for each wedge, I have "fractional" swings....1/5, 2/5, 3/5, 4/5, and 5/5 (full)….that correspond to my perceived level of force I'm working on honing my launch angles, smash factors, and spin rates...once those are more consistent, I'll hit ~10 shots with each "fraction" and get an average carry distance for each The end result is basically a table with 5 columns and 3 rows, each with its own carry distance
  13. I had a conversation with a PGA teaching professional who raised an interesting topic that had never once crossed my mind. He discussed jaw tension and the implications it has for the golf swing. Apparently this is something that sharpshooting experts have also looked into, as well as sleep scientists. The general idea is that having a loose jaw in the backswing (think tongue between your teeth or even sticking out slightly) alleviates tension in the golf swing and can help fluidity of motion, whereas tightening the jaw (biting down, grinding teeth, etc) does the opposite Is this crazy? Has anyone heard of this or experimented with it before? Interested what WRXers have to say!!
  14. Apologies if this topic should be elsewhere or if it exists already... I am in the market for a new 3 wood. I have been playing a Ping i25 for years and it has served me well, but it's starting to crack and instead of replacing it, I intend to get fitted for something more recent. I was browsing at Golf Galaxy the other day, and many of the fairway woods I checked out seemed "hook faced" at address. Several also seemed relatively upright. Part of the i25's appeal is that it sits square (or slightly open) and looks flatter at address, both of which inspire confidence for someone who prefers to play a fade like myself. The question: Can anyone recommend some recent fairway woods that sit square-to-open at address? I realize that de-lofting the club will open the face slightly, but I am interested in something that sits square/open in the neutral setting. I assume I'm not the only WRXer who prefers this look at address. Do any of the current offerings allow for lie angle adjustments or is that something I'll have to make happen with a club fitter? Thanks!!!
  15. Up for sale is a beautiful Odyssey Big 7 Arm Lock with a brand new JumboMax grip. 40”, standard loft and lie. Taken to the course once, just not for me. $180 shipped east of MS. $190 west. OBRO
  16. Alright guys quick sale today. Bought this blue heathered quarter zip at Merion last year and wore it maybe once. Just doesn’t fit me quite right. My loss is your gain. Let’s say $80 shipped CONUS (+$5 west of the Mississippi). Open to reasonable offers and trade bait. Worst I can say is no!
