  1. Any idea what the head weight is on it? Could it be re-shafted as a non-armlock? Thanks
  2. Figured I'd ping this group. Will be in Vegas next week and trying to play Wednesday with a colleague. I know this is a shoulder month for golf in the area with overseeding, but wanted to see what you guys would pick between the following, price vs. condition wise. (if it's not listed, there's no tee times available in AM). Thanks Angel Park - Mountain ($80-$103) Angel Park - Palm ($112) Reflection Bay ($65) Royal Links ($134) Siena ($117-$153) Arroyo ($142-$186) Paiute - Snow ($159) Boulder Creek ($59) Bear's Best ($269 haha)
  3. 1. Handicap? 3.8 2. Right or left hand golfer? Lefty 3. Current wedges and setup? MG2 52.09 (bent to 50.07), MG2 56.08 (bent to 54.06), 2018 Hi-Toe Raw 60.ATV. All 3 wedges have KBS $-Taper R (110g) shafts @ 0.5"+ 4. Why do you want to be fit for TaylorMade MG3 wedges? Have played low bouce 50/54/60 for a number of years but not sure if gapping and spin numbers match my game. 5. Are you available to be on site 8/30/2021 through 9/1/2021? Yes. 6. Will you be able to provide your own transportation to and from Reynolds Lake and East Lake Golf Club? Yes. 7. Are you willing to post high quality photos in the forum, write an in depth review of the experience, and possibly be featured on GolfWRX or TaylorMade social media posts? Absolutely.
  4. I might be on an island here, but did anyone have both the OG MGs and the MG2s and feel like the original MGs spun more over the long term? Don't get me wrong, the first few rounds with the MG2s I was zipping everything from chips to pitches and full shots, but I've had mine since last December and I don't feel like they've held their spin level compared to my OG MGs which I had for over 2 years. I have different shafts in my MG2s vs my OG MGs, but I suspect the raw face is the major variable.
  5. Shot in the dark but maybe the dots refer to bounce??? 1 dot = LB 2 dot = SB 3 dot = HB
  6. From what I recall, the Tour Vs aren't as stiff, but it's a different EI curve. I think Kim Braley designed the Tour Vs specifically for Phil and having a relatively stiff profile through butt and mid and then a super soft tip area. They were the only wedge shafts I've ever had that produced a stock draw with my wedges.
  7. It's also about pros playing shafts that help them fit their shot windows. Did an event a couple years ago and Brandt Snedeker played a par-3 with every group and I was looking at his bag and he plays SteelFiber I95s in Stiff and I was shocked (used to assume all pros played 130+ gram rebar). Asked him about why he played such a light iron shaft and he mentioned how it helps him with a higher ball flight as he's a low ball hitter.
  8. No trimming on my end. May have been trimmed before I received it.
  9. Just under 43 inches playing length. Somewhere between 42.75" and 43".
  10. All prices include CONUS shipping. Happy to provide more pics. Graphite Design Tour AD IZ 7s fairway shaft. Measures 41 7/8" with TM adapter. $OLD HZRDUS Smoke Black fairway shaft (80g / 6.0 flex). Measures 41 1/4" with TM adapter. $OLD Set of TaylorMade Milled Grind and Hi-Toe Wedges (50-09 SB, 54-12 HB, 60-ATV). All have matte black Modus 115 wedge shafts and GolfPride tour velvet cord grips. $OLD TaylorMade Spider Tour Red Putter (34" with headcover). Great shape (8/10). $OLD Graphite Design Tour AD IZ 6s driver shaft. Measures 44 5/8" with TM adapter. $OLD Graphite Design Tour AD BB 6s driver shaft. Measures 44" with Titleist adapter. $OLD
  11. Headed back down to Pinehurst for Memorial Day weekend in May and figured I'd ask the WRXers if they knew of any courses in the area that offered discounts if you play there on your birthday (mine is that weekend)? Couldn't find anything posted but wanted to see if you guys knew of any deals that courses don't advertise. For instance, was down there last year and played Mid Pines in the morning and - based on a rumor - asked the shop if they could get us on Pine Needles in the afternoon at a discount. Ended up getting Pine Needles in before complete darkness at $75 instead of the rack rate. Figured I'd start this thread for any tips or tricks to play in Pinehurst area. Some are not-so secret, like TR Travel having times for Dormie Club (apparently no more after 5/1 though). Any chance there's a way to get on CCNC or Forest Creek for us folks that don't have a club that can make the call? Or any reliable AirBnB/VRBO owners that can secure Pinehurst tee times for their guests? Thanks
