  1. I developed a case of the putting yips about a year or two ago and it kind of went full blown this year. I really attribute it to not practicing/playing a ton over that span, and just not being comfortable. It would only affect me on long putts that required a bigger stroke, let's say 30+ feet. 2 weeks ago, I played a round where I had 36 putts including multiple 3 putts and that was my breaking point. My next round, I moved my right hand to a modified claw/paintbrush style grip on the practice green 10 minutes before I teed off. Ended up putting great! Made a 50 footer on the 2nd hole and a bunch of others. It's amazing to not feel handicapped on the greens again, so I'll be sticking with it.
  2. Slate Blue is the nicest finish on a wedge I’ve ever seen. They are much more slate than blue, and just look absolutely amazing in person. They have the same durability as chrome. I’ve played 4 rounds and have hit a ton of practice shots with mine and I don’t think any of them have so much as a scratch.
  3. I love the JPX 919 Tours having come from a blade myself. They set up and look very close to a blade, but with a little (but noticeable) added forgiveness. Project X 6.0 is a much firmer shaft than an S300. A 5.5 is even stiffer than S300. I went from S300 to PX 6.0 and love it, but I was also purposely trying to go stiffer. You may be unhappy if you like the feel/profile of DG.
  4. 46 PW with set. Vokey SM7 50, 56, 60. I use the clubs at the bottom of my bag much more than the ones at the top.
  5. Of the 3 players to go on a Tiger-like run (Rory, Jordan, Brooks), I think Brooks has been the most impressive. I know Rory had a couple 8 shot major wins in there, but Brooks is the only one who has reminded me of Tiger in the slightest. I think he already carries an intimidation factor about him -- he talked a big game before the PGA and then promptly backed it up. Also helps that he is physically imposing. Koepka definitely has 7+ major win potential. Rory has the best golf swing I've ever seen, but he's been missing something for years. I just don't think he has the killer instinct anymore -- dude looks lackadaisical out there at times. The only other young player in the game, as of right now, that I think has a chance to become an all time great is Rahm, but even that's unlikely. Maybe JT, but if I had to venture a guess, I'd say he wins 1 or 2 more majors max. Getting to 10 is too difficult in today's game given how many solid players there are.
  6. I just got my Ping G410 with Evenflow Black 75 6.0 in yesterday. I took it to the range to hit a few and the trajectory change is noticeable immediately. I get a much lower, piercing ball flight, which is what I was looking for. My bigger concern was about the flex... my driver swing speed is in the 110-115 mph range and I still thought the 6.5 would be overkill, since it's already a firm/heavy/low spin shaft to begin with. Hoping the 6.0 pans out but looks good so far!

A PX 6.0 can be equated more to an "S+", but it's closer to X100 than S300. I recently switched from S300 to PX 6.0 and can say they are completely different shafts, both in profile and stiffness. > > I am in a similar situation. Are you in the same head or did you switch everything at once? I have found the PX6.0s to be easier to launch and feel slightly smoother than regular s300s. I went from Mizuno MP-67s to the JPX 919 Tour, but the heads are not too far off from each other. I've played S300 my whole life and always thought I needed to go a little firmer. I get a much more piercing, consistent ball flight with Project X, which I attribute more to the stiffer flex than anything else. They actually wanted to put me into an X100 or PX 6.5 at the PGA Superstore, but I thought that was overkill. I see so much commentary online about how Project X are "boardy" and I've never found that to be the case. My guess is most people are playing a PX shaft that is way too stiff for their swing (e.g. someone that should barely be playing a stiff shaft buying a 6.0).
  8. As ChipNRun mentioned, the shaft chart posted is going to be your best bet for an approximation of stiffness. They may label PX 5.5 as "Regular" when in actuality, it plays stiffer than a Dynamic Gold S300. A PX 6.0 can be equated more to an "S+", but it's closer to X100 than S300. I recently switched from S300 to PX 6.0 and can say they are completely different shafts, both in profile and stiffness.
  9. > @TrueTemper said: > The 6.0 EF Black will almost a full flex stiffer than the 7C3, so even if the 7C3 was a bit soft, you will still be good in the 6.0 EF Black, which is only a few grams heavier than the 7C3. > > DB So, just to confirm, you're saying an EvenFlow Black 6.0 is going to play almost a full flex stiffer than my 7C3 6.0?
  10. I'd classify the Shadow Fuse as "small". The 3.5 has a larger top opening, more pockets and a little bit larger look overall. The 4.5 would be even bigger, I'd assume.
  11. Does anyone have experience with the stock shaft offerings in the Ping G410 driver, more specifically the EvenFlow Black 75? It is classified as Low trajectory/Low spin, and I'm trying to gather feedback on how heavy/stiff the shaft actually is. I currently play a Project X 7C3 6.0 in my old Titleist driver and wanted to move to a stiffer flex this time around. The 6.0 honestly feels whippy and I probably should be closer to an extra stiff based on my swing speed. I play Project X 6.0 in all of my irons and love them, but understand the PX graphite shaft ratings don't necessarily translate well into their steel offerings. I'm also a little concerned about the weight, since the stock offering is the 75, not 65 -- it's a 79 gram shaft in 6.5. Any feedback welcome!
  12. I had a Shadow Fuse bag that I ultimately ended up returning. I wanted a simple, lightweight stand bag and this one is about as slick as it comes. The problem I had was with the straps... no matter how I adjusted them, it was impossible to get the bag to sit at any angle on my back. The bag would lay horizontal to the ground -- to the point that a tiny tilt would knock all of my clubs out of the bag. It appears to sit the same way in all the photos/videos I've seen, including the OGIO video that covers how to properly adjust the straps. I'm really not sure how OGIO could screw up such an integral part of a carry bag this badly. I returned it and purchased a Sun Mountain 3.5 which is a much better bag in every way, in my opinion.
