  1. Wedges are always safe - especially if you duplicate what you have now. Can always use a back ups for fresh grooves.
  2. I don't have any left from last order.
  3. Only time I had an issue is when the balls came from golfballs.com. They do their own printing for Titleist. But anything that came from the Titleist factory directly has been perfect.
  4. I guess it doesn't really matter because I will never know if any ball I play it is off center unless I cut it open... of course then I can't play it. Play what you like and don't stress over it.

  6. My first set was a starter set - 1975: Powerbilt Levelume - D, 5W, 3,5,7,9, Dual Wedge and putter. My first set of full irons - Jack Nicklaus Golden Bear's from Penny's 3-SW for Christmas 1977 My first purchases on my own: Tony Penna Driver $40, Ping Answer Putter $25, Dunlop Australian Blades $199 - all were purchased 1979-1980
  7. I always look at things like this in the long term... in 5 years will you miss that extra $200? Or if I look at how long I plan on keeping a club or clubs and divide the price by the # of years I intend to play them it is really cheap. In other words if you keep the irons 5 years you paid $20 a year extra. (I know, I know this is Golfwrx so keeping clubs longer than 6 months is blasphemy). I usually keep a driver 3-4 years so I don't see it as a $500 driver, but as a $125 a year driver.
  8. Actually I just did a virtual ball fitting with Titleist and in reality the ball that is probably better for most golfers is the Pro V1X over the regular Pro V1. Because it launches higher and spins more which helps a lower swing speed golfer keep their drives in the air longer and gives them the spin to hold the green.
  9. Yes - can a fitting and new equipment help you play better. But obviously the better you get and lower your handicap the tougher it is to shave strokes. The 100 shooter with up to date stuff and a fitting can bring their scores down faster. But a 5 handicap trying to get to 3 is not going to through new equipment... just needs a way to make two more putts a round.

    Annika

    Very Curious... what is Annika's bag on her return to competitive golf - new or some old friends?
  11. Still in my bag from spring 2019... I'm a bad wrxer - I keep a driver for about 5 years just because of the cost factor. Also AP2 716s, SM7 Vokey wedges, Odyssey 2-ball putter since 2001 5.8 Index and stick with what I like and works.
  12. I went into Golf Galaxy to wander around and see the shiny new toys available. But I left there shaking my head at the prices this season: drivers 500-550, Irons 1300-1400, Wedges 150-160 and putters 200+ (just to roll the ball!). Today I had my pro check/adjust the loft and lie on my irons and regrip all my clubs... that was a lot cheaper. But I will be trying the new balls - TP5 & Pro V1s (that also is a lot cheaper!)
