  1. The 2020 BX is much softer feeling than the 2018. It's the perfect ball in my opinion.
  2. Sandestin Resort in Destin, FL has great packages, accommodations, courses, nightlife, and of course beaches. That time of year it’s in your budget for sure. Here’s a link. https://www.sandestin.com/offers-packages/sandestins-ultimate-golf-package
  3. Streamsong is literally out in the middle of nowhere. Your prob looking at a 30 min drive to find anything. Maybe near Bartow or Frostproof might be your best chance of finding an Airbnb. Lakeland is about a 45 min drive, but would have more options. Courses are great, but everything else on the resort is ridiculously overpriced and average.
  4. It may have been that I just built it up too much given the history. But honestly besides the last 5 holes, it was just an average layout with less than average conditioning. I am not a member anywhere in STL so I alternate between a few courses. I play at Missouri Bluffs, Tapawingo, AnnBriar, and Olin mostly. I have only played those courses a couple times, but I prefer St. Albans. Fox Run is nice, but it does not have the topography plus you have 36 holes at St. Albans.
  5. A guy in our group has a business partner who is a member there. It's a Tom Doak design built on an old sand quarry. It opened in 1999 and by 2008 it was ratee in the top 100 in America. In 2014 it was ranked inside the top 100 modern courses. It's a really fun layout with a good mixture of holes. Fairwaysd are pretty wide, but the greens are really challenging with lots of slopes and tiers. there are a few tree lined holes, but most are pretty open. I would highly recommend it if you are in the NE IL /NW IN area. Here is a link to take a look at some of the holes. http://www.lostd
  6. I have the 54* full sole Tour rack with a little heel and trailing edge relief. I would think this would be the closest by giving you wider sole width but reduced bounce on the trailing edge.
  7. The 983K was a draw biased driver. The larger heads do tend to lag open slightly but you would be surprised how many tour players have heel weight in their drivers to make it easier to turn over.
  8. The Mavrik 4wd or Titleist TS2 are both good. if you need spin go with the TS2 if you don't, go with the Mavrik.
  9. Trip was GREAT! We had to change our itinerary a little bit but still played some great courses and had great weather: Day 1 Cog Hill Dubsdread. Was in really good shape. What a challenge. Greens are heavily tiered and bunkered. Really good test of golf. Better have your iron game on point. Day 2 Lost Dunes. WOW! Great layout, very wide fairways but incredibly challenging greens. hard to not have a 3 putt or three... Was in imaculate condition. Really good mix of holes. Was in the top 2 for most of us on the trip Day 3 Medinah #3. Obviously great history, but course was j
  10. The Snell and Vice balls perform as well as the top tier balls. So they will outperform the lower tier balls. In essence you are getting top tier performance for a lower price.
  11. Just checked my 0211 irons and every club has a different serial number. Is this common???
  12. I just got my Zipcores in. I went Tour Rack raw 54 Full bent to 55 and 58 low bent to 60. This gives me about 13* of bounce with a little trailing edge/heel grind on my sand wedge and 8* bounce on my lob wedge with the ability to lay it wide open and still hit it off a tight lie because of the low grind.
  13. I’ve been playing i95 in my irons for several years. I’ve lost some speed and thinking about changing to i80. I tried the i70 but they were too light. It just seems now I really struggle to load the i95 and launch/spin is too low. I tried softstepping but it still didn’t help. Any advice would be helpful.
  14. 1. What is your nearest Titleist fitting location, search HERE Solid Impact Golf Center 2. City and State? Glen Carbon, IL 5. Handicap? 4 4. Current Driver Setup? Taylormade Sim Max 9* set lower/open Aldila Quaranta Reg. 5. Where you fit for your current driver? Yes 6. What TSi head do you want to test? Open to model that performs the best 7. Do you agree to participate in an ongoing testing thread, posting reviews and photos? YES
  15. Vice optic yellow. The ball almost glows...
