  1. True Temper TX 90, yes, it does come in 0.335. I use it in the fairway woods.
  2. Use masking or painter tape, and a few drops of lubricant. I had use grip solvent, or even water...... don't need much and drys up quickly. Grip will be ready to use immediately If the I.D. of the grip fits the O.D. of the shaft. To prevent the grip from ballooning , use a shield for the grip. I had used the cut off plastic club tube ( the kind you insert into the bag to keep the shafts from tangling ), or a hard cardboard tube from Saran Wrap ( not the flimsy kind, the one which is made of heavy material ) or had used a piece of plastic tube from hardware store. You only need to prot
  3. Go to the driving range with your current equipment and spend some time there. From there, figuring out which way you should be heading. Whether you want a softer flex, standard length, more forgiving head design........... The high road is to get fitted , and the easiest way is to spend sometime on the driving range to figure out for yourself. It all depends on your current physical condition, the size of your wallet and how much time you have to get to the standard you set for yourself. Newer equipment will help your playing, and you were once a decent golfer, that's like riding a bicyc
  4. They had shared their experience and all valid points. Especially the starting small part. Just want to add one thing, eventually, you'll have to look into coverage for error and omission. All components these day are so expensive, one mistake will set you back a long way if you do not have the coverage for error and omission. Ask your insurance representative, some home policy will cover this is you do not have a full fledged business front. $600 head and $800 shaft will be difficult to swallow. Think how many rounds of green fees equal to that ? Even when doing your "friends" a favor, t

You've got no more a shot at rebuilding a 50-year-old swing than you do of becoming a concert pianist. I know a lot of re
  7. Usually, the serial number is the golf club's birth certificate. Manufacturer should be able to authenticate it. OEM like Ping even have the complete history of a set of clubs, when it was made, the original spec, where it was shipped to ( no previous owner's info for obvious reason but they'll tell you the City it was sent to ). The counterfeits have lower quality and performance, usually it's lighter and not balanced as well as the OEM products. You can tell by the finishing, the performance....... There is a large quantity of "USED" counterfeits on the markets now. A few decades ago
  8. 27 years.... Did you realize that most the golfers have never scored par or better ? A majority of the weekend golfers never even broke 80s in their life long golfing experience. The first for par or better is always the best. Now the mental barrier is down, go get more. Par is obtainable by design but birdie every hole is a dream that we keep chasing after.

  11. If your instructor witness your golf swing after the lesson and said that you had a mental block....? I would have a discussion with him to find out what exactly did he mean. If he could not tell you what was causing the issue then, time to dump him. You two are not a good match. Neither one of you may be at fault, it just didn't work out. Very seldom anyone will marry their first date, not that's impossible, it just does not happen often. We all have different physical ability, our athletic ability are different, our physical frame are different and most of all, we're in different age
  12. I can see the smidgen of epoxy on the ferrule. You'll need to be a little more generous on the epoxy and not thinking of saving the ferrule down the road if you don't want to reset the ferrule. Reset the ferrule is not a big deal, but the shaft better be prep and epoxy the right way.
  13. > @"Crazy About Golf" said: > More and more, I find myself casting aside my 3-wood in favor of my 16-degree hybrid. I'm more comfortable hitting it off the deck and off the tee, and only seem to lose about 10 yards of distance compared to the 3-wood (assuming I strike the 3-wood perfectly). More often than not, I have a slight mishit on the 3-wood and end up short and or offline from where I would have otherwise been with the 16-degree hybrid. I've tried out a number of new fairway woods and haven't yet found anything that has "WOWed" me. With hybrid clubs getting better and better,
  14. > @garyt said: > I have no knowledge to be giving anyone swing advice but losing 50 yards off an 8 iron says something is drastically wrong. You say you're hitting it solid but an 80 year old hitting it solid would hit it more than 100 yards. You should post a video. It just does not happen that way over night. The OP must have something else going on in his life to cause this. New medical condition ? Losing 1/3 of carrying distance for an 8 iron is ridiculously huge. If this happened in real life, there must be some other reason for it, besides changing the golf swing. Or, perh
  15. > @Ripper212 said: > You need to speak to your doc about adjusting your meds. That’s the best advice you could hope for on a golf forum! Adjusting and perhaps switching to another type of med is quite normal during the course of treatment. You should communicate your concern to your healthcare provider on any issue that influence your normal routine. If you're new to the HP medication, same as with any other medication, takes awhile to let your body and mind adjust to the medication. You may have other medical condition beside HP, so seek medical consultation and referral for oth
  16. > @Moonlightgrm said: > This fellow is new to our region. Every member received a personalized email from this fellow. In my case, he claimed he can get me on the path to scratch. My current index is 2.8. He uses Trackman and a three camera system to analyze your swing/data. I’m tempted to spend the $90 and give this guy a shot. I have spoken to one member (18-handicap) who took a lesson with him. He said the guy seems to know his stuff, but he felt he gave him too much information in one lesson. He called it, “information overload”. He appreciated the Trackman data coming into his acco
  17. Eco friendly golf ball are good for the environment , only ! Tried some before and they are not measuring up to any of the existing commercial brands. Years ago, one of the guys from our group called in for the "free" Warrior advance hybrids, paid shipping of $19.99 got two used hybrids, one with jumbo grip on it. Then the relentless phone calls and emails for additional merchandise...... He finally had to change phone number ( blocking feature was none exist back then ).
  18. Any marking on the sole of the putter ? The only search result for Golden Par International Scotland is the Trump International Golf in Scotland. A Ping copy sold in their Pro-Shop ?
  19. S400 always felt a little firmer to me than the S300, both in the irons and the woods. I like it in the driver because it's more stable for my swing when I went after the golf ball. A lot of the old timers like to have the S400 in the irons instead of the X100, X200. Heavier in weight should feel firmer, the shaft would have just a bit thicker wall in construction. More stable and firmer should be the description.
  20. Take more club if you want more distance. Golf club, especially in the irons, does not give you more distance with newer designs. It's in the physical make up of the loft and shaft length and the shafts. There is no Holy Grill, that can give you more than what your physical ability could produce. If there is one, then all the golfers would be playing the same set of golf clubs. Sure, the X18 is not going to be shinning in the bag and flashing $$$$$ at the other golfers , but if you could produce some "golf shots" with the set, everyone in the group would like to know what club you're usin
  21. > @quikj said: > Yep. It's just my 3 hybrid that hooks like this. The 2nd video in my original post shows my 3 wood swing. That's probably my favorite club in the bag. I use it off the tee and off the deck with confidence. no problems hooking. It's generally a push or a draw. > > Alignment has been an issue for me in the past. Thanks for the tip. I hook the crap out of that hybrid both on the course and the range. I've stopped using it on the course, until I can sort my swing out. My swing flaws seem to be exacerbated with that club. 3 wood off the deck is probably one of
  22. No other club in the bag behave like the 3 hybrid ? Do you have a 3 wood, a 3/4 iron ? Does this sharply hooking ball flight happens with the driving range mat or anywhere including hitting off the grassy turf ? If, you have no issue with fairway woods and long irons, and not hooking as bad on the grassy turf then, probably the equipment be at fault. Several factors to look into, the lie angle could be too up right, the face aligned closed where the top line on the crown is less hooky looking. Check which part of the sole contact the ground. Align the bottom of the score lines to the
  23. Do you go to a podiatrist for your kidney stone ? A fitter should not mess with a client's golf swing unless , asked by the client to help and it's not involving overhauling the whole set up ( throw in a disclaimer that this is not what the client paid for thus, no liability involved). Never, ever mess with a golfer's swing unless asked to help or get paid for. An imperfect golf swing presents in the very best of the best golfer's swing. Nothing wrong if it works for that golfer, and no one, no one should or could swing the same way out of a cookie cutter. We're all built with a differen

  25. Keep it fun for her to golf. You may have something there. A pretty dramatic improvement for her in a short time. Kids learn the game quickly because they have no preconceived idea, so don't pollute the young eager minds. Put her hands on the grip correctly and they'll figure out by doing it and watching the better golfers ( LPGA tournament on the TV is a good source ). Most of all, monitor her progression with an eye out for injury. Stay healthy and perhaps by the next season you'll be receiving strokes from her.
