  1. Hello, Does Titleist make new 6080's for Adam Scott or do they just refurbish old sets? Thanks for the input!
  2. > @jmgledhill said: > I bought a 790 udi yesterday through the forums with the expectation that it was standard L/L. I put it on the loft lie 'machine' at our club to check it and it looks like its 2up. It'll be no problem bending it where it should be but I'm curious how far left this would cause the ball to go. I play 2* flat - the more upright mid and short irons are the more I hit them left. I can get away playing standard long irons.
  3. lots of forgiving blade models coming out from OEM's. I'm guessing the HMB is hollow like the P790's?
  4. Ping has been around for so long and have done so many innovating things its hard to go wrong with a set. I've gamed the Eye2, I15, both Anser irons. I still play the G25 driver, 3 wood, and 22* hybrid.

Hogan glared at him a second, then without saying a word, dropped a second ball, grabbed his 2 iron from the bag and zipped it in there right next to the first. He dropped a second ball then grabbed his pitching wedge and did the same. When they got up to the green he finally spoke, saying, "dont ever ask me again what club I've hit son." > > > > Who is that in the picture with Rickie Fowler? > > That's my daughter. She played with Rickie at Bear's Club a couple of years ago. She's in her 3rd year playing in college now. Good for her and you. Sounds like a talented golfing family!

Who is that in the picture with Rickie Fowler?
  7. > @"mark m" said: > Ben Hogan lists his distances in the book _Power Golf_(1948). He won 10 tournaments that year including 2 majors. If you want more info you should visit the Hogan Swing subforum. Those dudes know a lot about him. Below are his listed distances for "regular" and "maximum" from the book. He talks about weather conditions and fairway firmness as the significant factors: > > Driver = 265 (regular), 300 (maximum) > Brassie = 250, 270 > 3w = 235, 250 > 4w = 220, 230 > 1i = 195, 220 > 2i = 185, 210 > 3i = 175, 200 > 4i = 165, 190 > 5i = 155, 180 > 6i = 145, 170 > 7i = 135, 160 > 8i = 125, 150 > 9i = 115, 140 > PW = 50 in, 105 > SW = 25, 40 Thanks for this info man! I will check out that forum.
  8. I've always been a fan of Ben Hogan. I've read a couple books and watched some documentaries about him - I've never been able to find much info on his typical club distances or swing speeds. The only thing I really found was a video on YouTube that measured shots from his Shell's Wonderful World of Golf vs. Sam Snead. The numbers were all over the place. 7 iron from 163, 6 iron from 138, 4 iron from 175. Please post if you have any good info. Thanks,
  9. This article is interesting - https://www.golf.com/tour-news/2017/12/21/modern-pro-swing
  10. I don't get the OSU obsession. He was there for less than two years.
  11. Can you post your swing on any of the forums for feedback?
  12. > @Valtiel said: > Driver: Taylormade M1 430 8.5* (set to 9.25*) custom finished in Gunmetal/Orange. Tensei Pro Orange V2 70TX, 45" D8 > > > > A serious feast or famine driver at times that acts like a more adjustable modern SLDR. Extra 10G weight added to the front track. The Tensei is a great fit for my swing and how I prefer to turn the ball over. Long and high low spin bombs if you can strike it up, spins up pretty high on lower strikes, excellent feel and sound. > > > > (Image) > > > > > > > Strong 3 Wood(s): Callaway Xhot 3Deep 14.5* w/Fujikura Motore Speeder VC 8.3 Tour Spec X / Nike SQ2 13* custom finished w/ Diamana Blueboard 83x.

It was a killer eBay find but by my measurements the shaft has been tipped 2" and it just feels like a board. I may swap shafts with the SQ2 13* as I feel 13* is too strong for me and what I want the club to do. > > > > > > (Image) > > > > > > > 4 Wood: Nike SQ2 Tour Issue 17* long hosel custom finished w/ Diamana Blueboard 103x. 41.75" D5. > > > > This club is irreplaceable. 1/2" short, 8g of hotmelt in the head, shaft tipped 2", its a 4 wood that thinks its a strong 3 wood and I really need to get it on the launch monitors to see how much distance i'm actually giving up with it because it is LONG. Super versatile due to its loft, the shaft feels perfect and even when tipped that much does not feel boardy at all. The only possibility of change here is if a future Ping Anser hybrid build kicks it out.... > > > > > > > > > > Hybrid: Ping Anser 20* w/Aldila Rogue Black 110 105h Tour X. 40.75" - D5 > > > > The most comfortable club in my bag and the only reason I may change the above 4 wood (Anser 17*).

I switch between the 3i and the Anser Hybrid and sometimes carry both. Easier to keep down and more accurate.

Old Brunswick Rifle shafts like I used to play in junior golf (3 backup sets in the closet). These irons simply work for me in terms of aesthetics, feel, and playability. > > > > (Image) > > > > > > > Gap Wedge: Vokey 256.12 Mild Raw (bent to 54*) w/ Brunswick Precision Rifle 7.0 FCM - D8 > > > > I never had much luck with traditional gap wedges as they felt too much like pitching wedges and I found bending 56* wedges strong was much better for me. These old 200 Series Vokeys were just the perfect shape. Same playing length as my PW and ported for weight relief. The grind on this wedge is similar to a modern S-Grind and is my go to all purpose wedge for chipping, long bunker shots, and most full shots from 100-120y. > > > > > > > > > > Sand Wedge: Vokey WedgeWorks 58* Oil Can Low Bounce K-Grind w/ Brunswick Precision 7.3 FCM - D8 > > > > The most ridiculously simple club to hit out of softer sand, virtually automatic. Lower bounce makes it viable as a lob wedge as well and is a go to for softer lies and minor flop shots.

Half shaft offset suits my eye much better than a traditional Anser style putter. Bullseye shaft because its satin and I hate glossy putter shafts. > > > > (Image) > > > > > > > > > Full Bag: > > > > Old Titleist headcovers because I like them. This is a no nonsense bag not looking to get attention. You're probably a good player.

The FASTER player will hit the ball farther. What's the best way to get a faster swing IYO?
  14. This was the question asked -_**_ If two golfers have an identical swing but one if fairly stronger (strength) than the other will the stronger golfer hit the ball farther?_**_
