    So, first time on the course with my new 10 two ball tour lined and can I say that it felt great and I putted well, despite the fact I had 37 putts??? Burned so many by the edge of the hole... just weren’t falling. (It was only the second round of the year.) Am I just trying to justify my purchase?

    I have to say I’m a big fan of the oversized grip, which I didn’t think I would be. But it has a reversed taper and I put left hand low, so the extra thickness in my left hand feel great. This is my first two ball putter and I love the confidence it inspires with the tour line- just point and shoot. The microhinge insert feels good- very subtle click and it’s soft, but not too soft. Finally, the stroke lab shaft is great- it gives you a great feel for the head without it having to be too heavy.

    I usually play a 33 inch putter, but got a 34 2 ball ten. I was in the store and making everything with the 34- I choked down with oversized grip and it just felt fantastic- so, I’m really playing it at 33. I didn’t think I would like the oversized grip, but it’s shape is perfect for me as I putt left hand low.
  5. My apologies- I actually have the X grind, not the W. Everything I said is still true. I think I was debating between the X and the W and I got the X, but I must have had the W on my mind.
  6. I would consider my angle of attack pretty steep- I sometimes take 10 inch divots. I have the 58 in a W grind and love it- especially since my usual course has drainage issues (thus the 10 in divots). I have no problem playing it square or open. I hit some nice flops around the green with it from a couple of “tighter” lies. Very happy with the wedge.
  7. Callaway should sell them separately- but I guess they want to sell the whole “package.” Thanks
  8. I don’t know if it’s my steep swing angle or the fact I just feel more confident looking down on an iron, but my 3 iron (18 degrees... crazy) just works. Played this weekend and the 3 tee shots I hit with my 3 iron were as far as my playing partners’ drivers. I hit pretty high too. I’ll probably take the hybrid out of the bag and start carrying a 4th wedge.
  9. First time on the course with the G80. I loved the “plays like feature.” I regularly play a pretty hilly course and I had an uphill blind shot that was 160- I hit the plays like feature and it said 175. I clubbed up and put it in the middle of the green. Worked nicely on the downhill shots as well. I also liked that he scorecard also keeps stats and that are uploaded to the app.
  10. Wow- I was impressed with the accuracy in comparison to the professional (around $16k) machine. The ball speed and carry distance were dead on- through the entire set of irons. The carry distance was within 1 or 2 yards. Hit my AW, 8 iron, 7 iron, 6 iron and 5 iron. The most important takeaway is that the G80 was within 1 or 2 yards of the carry distance on clean hits. The G80 is not accurate on mishits- of course because it doesn’t measure spin and launch angle. I have to say, I was very impressed. Can you tell I’m impressed?
  11. I’ll try again this week and post my results- right now the soccer field across the street from my house that I hit wedges on has soccer players on it- the nerve! I have a friend that has one of those professional launch monitors that I’m also going to use to see how accurate my G80 is- I’ll also post the comparison with my long irons and woods.
  12. I haven’t made note of the carry distance differences- just that total distance was near perfect. Sorry.
