  3. I wear a 12 extra wide in footjoy, 13 wide in Nike, 12 extra in New Balance, 13 in True original and can’t find an Under Armour model or Adidas model that fits (ultraboosts non golf shoes fits fine though in standard which is odd). Footjoy has the most options for size but the standard saddle style shoe still has a pretty tight toe box for me. The spikeless SL version and all of the flex options (if you don’t need waterproof) fit really well in the wide options. True original fits incredibly well but the no heel height thing was uncomfortable and I didn’t do a good job adapting going from it to a standard shoe. New Balance always fits well and the golf shoe was no exception but I just don’t like any of their styles particularly well. Nike Lunarlon(I think that’s what they are, really weird S cleat pattern)/Vapor old models both offered in wides have a wide toe box so I gravitated to those. Really liked the fit of those so I gave the infinity tours a try (this years model) in the wide and I think they’re the most comfortable golf shoe I’ve ever worn. They’re a very comfortable snug fit but expand really well with whatever new material they’re using, you don’t feel stuck in them at all, not expanding so your feet won’t hurt kind of traditional leather shoe expanding but just expanding to kind of fit with your foot. I’ve bought three colorways now, I think they’re the best personally. Hopefully something in that may help.
  4. The responses here are really confusing to me as well. What you said is the exact reason why they're doing it. The overwhelming majority of the broadcast audience isn't tuning in to watch Lanto Griffin, Tyler Duncan, JT Poston or really the majority of the people in the field each week even though I believe all of these players won last year. As such the people like that won and they won on merit, but that purse that they won is what it is because of the big names that drive the audience. They are not giving people strokes based on popularity or mulligans based on interactions on social media. The winner each week is still going to earn a win and there is still plenty of money for the consistent players that keep their card year in and year out but rarely or ever win. This is a bonus for the players that make golf a profitable business that don't get rewarded for that monetarily by the PGA (they are of course still awarded through more endorsements).
  5. I see people say this often and it is a bit confusing. That quarter inch is less than the variable length change from 6 to 7 iron (or any other club). How is your back going to be saved? You were already swinging a 37.5 inch club, it just had an 7 on it instead of an 8.
  6. I think this really depends on where you play. For what I would venture is a majority of courses, short is going to be a better miss quite often. Most municipals and public courses that aren't trying to host mid-am's/qualifiers/be on golf digest top 100 list or whatever have no trouble in the front because they're trying to accommodate for golfers that can't get the ball up and need to run everything up to the green (or accidentally run everything up to the green). I was playing MP-57's (which I fully recognize aren't a blade) for 10 years and switched to P-790. P-790 did exactly what it advertised itself as, it kept ball speed up on mishits. That completely changed how I played golf though. Usually my little thin fanny miss ended up short right on a low cut apron letting me hit whatever kind of chip shot I wanted. I was consistently pin high with the change to P-790, the problem for me was that meant trying to hit out of patchy rough, not super well maintained green side bunkers and uneven lies as most greens are elevated for drainage which left my pin high miss usually in much more trouble than being short. The reality to me is, as long as you're not so inconsistent over the face that the blade length causes more shanks (which for some people is a reality, 4ish MM's on either side of center is a lot more room to miss with something like P790 compared to P730) you can certainly enjoy golf with any type of club.
  7. Hello, looking to get rid of a couple of iron sets and a putter that's been sitting in my garage. I would have to pay someone to do the pulls on the iron heads for me so at the moment I am only selling everything together. Generally the prices are pretty locked in but will of course accept any reasonable offers. Accepting Paypal only. Shipping is included to contiguous United States, if you are outside of the contiguous states I'm sure we can work out something. Post or DM for paypal information. First up are a set of Callaway Apex Pro Raw 5-PW. MCC+4 Midsize Grips, KBS $-Taper 125 (stiff+), 1 degree weak throughout (46 degree PW), 1/4" long (38.25" 5-iron), BB&F ferrules. Raw finish was done by Oughton's Golf in Southern California and he did a fantastic job. Asking $old Next up are 2019 King Cobra King Forged MB/CB combo set 4-PW. Paint was stripped and BB&F ferrules were done by Oughton's Golf. Golf Pride Multi Compound Midsize Grips with 2 extra wraps under the right hand, KBS $-Taper 125 Black (stiff+), Standard Loft (46 degree PW) , standard Cobra (38.25" 5-iron), BB&F ferrules. These have seen barely any rounds, the black on white ball just made them a bit to small for me. Asking $old Last is a Scotty Cameron TeI3 Newport Long Neck. Length 35.5" (I know it's long), standard loft and lie. Refinished by BOS in October and they did added a sight dot for me, it just was personally to light with how slow my greens are. It is shafted with a regripit flat black stepless putter shaft and has a golf pride tour snsr 104cc grip. Asking $old - I got the putter cover in the pictures on eBay. It seems flimsy but it's coming with the putter as well.
  8. The Taylormade 14 way is the best IMO. I thought the Callaway fusion was horrible. No cart strap through makes the thing bounces all over when/if you ride and the top design is really not intuitive to me at all (at least for my club set up). Didn't know where to put the putter, standard Super Stroke barely fit into the front slots which meant I had to go driver putter in the back two big ones, which then meant my three wood head cover kept going on top of the closest iron and banging around the shaft. I also don't particularly like the leg design of Sun Mountain/Callaway when riding, the stand to trigger the legs always seemed to make the bag to big to fit into the cart without going at an odd angle. Taylormade FlexTech has an intuitive top design to me (driver/putter/3-wood at the top, three wedges at the bottom, 8 irons in the other 8 slots) and if I played another wood the center hole in the bottom is also bigger to allow for a bigger grip if I wanted putter to be there. Easy range finder pocket, easily accessible valuables pocket while walking. Strap through also means it doesn't move when I ride and because the leg mechanism is hidden, kind of similar to a ping, the bottom fits well on the cart. If all I did was walk I wouldn't want a 14 way but for the 2 months or so that we were walking only at my course with COVID it was comfortable on my back and worked well as a walking bag.
  9. I've found the same. The 2019 TP5x worked pretty well for me durability wise. The 2020 has been not good. Noticeable scuffing going all the way to pretty bad tears, maybe I just got a bit unlucky with the batch mine came from. I have had one make it through 9 holes without noticeable enough scuffs that I feel would impact the ball, generally a wedge out of a bunker or something spinny from a tight lie is taking off some of the outer layer. Pro V has been much better as far as durability. I finally found some of the new Chrome Soft X in stock and so far those have been playing really well all around also and since I use a line for putting, the triple track already on them has been nice (plus the permanent marker line smears instantly if it's anywhere near the club face so the actual printed lines are nice since they don't smear).
  10. My wife and I were very schedule orientated which luckily made it pretty easy. Nap from 9-11 and 1-3 meant while they were young if I got out early she could do wake up, start a semi-break (can't leave the house but doesn't have any other motherly responsibilities) at nine and as long as I'm back by 11 I can do kid and lunch until afternoon nap. Same goes for if I woke up with him at nine I was free to leave and I had until 3 to be back (but I miss lunch and we like doing meals together). That's not to say or imply all the days were easy. Sometimes they don't nap and that person gets the shaft but we really focused on not both being caretakers 100% of the time and alternating with each other to keep some sense of alone time where we can decompress and relax and then after dinner we spent more time all together. Now that he's older and just in an afternoon nap its not as easy but if I play early I'm still home by lunch, can take primary responsibility when I get home and keep primary responsibility until after dinner, giving us both about equal alone time to spend as we want whether that be golf/taking a nap/pool without kids/reading/etc. He can also go with us if we want to ride a few holes together, smack some balls thirty yards and then go putt with us. Biggest thing for us was committing. A 3 hour round is great. A 4.5 hour round, with a 30 minute warm-up, 10 minute commute each way, and a beer in the bar afterwards turns me being gone for 3 1/2 hours to 4 hours into me being gone for 6 hours which is of course a much harder deal to strike, for good reason. The golfing habits may have to change but there are certainly ways where you can both continue enjoying your hobbies if you work together on finding the time to make it happen.
  11. It seems like Tiger blades losing the tiger branding and some other small change (offset difference/slight blade length change something) at a lower price point could easily replace 730. Then add in a true no speed foam CB and a true combo set like Callaway does with apex (different lofts) to blend the CB and P790 would make the most sense. I know others on tour are now playing them but it still seems like it would be weird to see a Rory/Fleeteood/Tiger pairing and have all three playing Tigers clubs.
  12. > @RH82 said: > So this has been bad year for driver issues for me. Cracked 2 drivers on the crown and spent the whole season played mostly with a fairway wood off the tee. I have to say that customer service with Callaway and TM has been awesome and they replaced my driver every single time but the drawback was waiting for a replacement. I’m just kind of sick of carbon fibre multi material drivers welded together that seem cheaply put together at such high costs. Thoughts? I've had no problems with the crown. I can't stand the carbon on the sole though. A wooden or plastic object is hitting it at 115 MPH, it's obviously going to scratch/splinter/crack. Then the original M5 model with the overlapping rails that were carbon fiber which was fixed quickly with an updated model but they still have some of the big rails at my local PGA Superstore. I've had no problem with exchanges and PGA Superstore has both times just exchanged the same head off the rack and dealt with the company directly but it's still a frustrating issue on a $550 purchase to have to deal with at all.
  13. > @JDMRN81 said: > They have a glide wedge with the loft/bounce and shaft I’ve been looking for in “value” condition. I emailed if they could send pics and they said they couldn’t do that. My wife and I run a business and we do everything we can to accommodate clients. I personally will never buy from them. They're a massive business. Global Golf is all Golf Galaxy and Dick's pre-owned stuff , the largest suppliers of equipment (and probably others). They've determined it's a better business move to take no pictures, under grade nearly everything and have the customer be happy when they get a better than expected product than spend the money on processing time, data storage and equipment to take the pictures. If they start taking pictures for someone, they have to take pictures for everyone or at least be willing. Obviously it's 100% your decision to not support their business model but as you are a business owner it does seem like seeing their side isn't much of a leap. For me personally I haven't had any issues at all with Global Golf or Callaway Pre-Owned, both who operate basically the same way and have been pleasantly surprised by what I actually got compared to what it was listed at and the price I was able to get the item for.
  14. It seems like lots of people avoid using the Scotty Custom Shop because it's expensive but where is that expense coming from? I just processed my tei3 order to BOS, if they don't think I need a new insert it's going to be about 60 dollars cheaper than sending it to Scotty (I don't know if Scotty replaces the insert or not). They charged extra because it had an insert, extra because it has a finish already on it, same price to add a sight dot, extra to ensure loft and lie are accurate. I don't get a new grip, new shaft, or new headcover (however cheap the "free" scotty ones may be) and I had to remove the shaft. I don't know if they'll do better work or not, especially because I just want a traditional pro platinum style finish instead of the black oxide that obviously all tei3 came with but the price seems to be about a wash 320 with Scotty including new grip/shaft/headcover and 260 from BOS (assuming no new insert) for just the head to be shipped back. If you want an exotic looking finish I understand that's not available through the custom shop but if you just want to get back to original (custom shop black finish is a black oxide on carbon putters according to the website) or a pro platinum look it kind of seems like the custom shop may have actually been cheaper if you were going to replace shaft/grip anyways.
