  1. 1. City, State: Oakbrook Terrace, Illinois 2. Current Driver: Taylormade M2 3. Handicap: 26 How could a Cleveland Launcher XL Lite driver help your game: I fight a slice and I am very intrigued by the perimeter weighting and light shaft.
  2. Back in stock at my local location. Of course I bought two more double boxes. Also picked up a large pepperoni from the food court. Life is good.
  3. I also have the 005 double bend and love it. Like a previous post mentioned, there is some definite feedback on non centered strikes. It is heavy which I love. 10/10 would recommend.
  4. Seconded. Seems like PGA SS is always slammed but GG can get you in and out in a reasonable amount of time.
  5. 1. Oakbrook Terrace, IL 2. Butler National Golf Club 3. Kirkland Performance + 4. I'm very interested in using them as a putting alignment aid!
  6. I would put it this way: The 699's are excellent, and when you also consider the price, they become a no brainer.
  7. Planning a round at Cantigy for the first time with a buddy (we are both high handicap players). Do any of you guys have a preference on which 9's to play? Is there a difference in difficulty on any of them?
  8. A couple of those par 3's have tiny greens and can be very tough. One of them can get a little blocked out by some low hanging branches, especially if the pin in on the right. Can't recall which hole it is.
  9. I'm not a single length player but I have a Cobra 3H SL in the bag. I picked it up when I first started playing as I struggled with the length of a standard 3H. Now I'm just used to it and I love hitting it. When needed, I can hit a 180yd runner that only gets 10 feet off the ground. Well, it's that or I top the sh*t out of it. Either way it doesn't launch very high.
  10. I've seen them there on Saturday/Sunday mornings. From what I gather they're part of some Chicago Parks program. They caddie for free; all you have to do is tip. I keep forgetting to bring cash but I'd love to hire one of them out. Win/win right?
  11. I was out at Jackson Park today as well. First group out and we were cruising. Some (most) of the bunkers are unplayable. Rocks and mud everywhere. Otherwise, the conditions at JP have been pretty solid all year. I had my sights set on breaking 90 for the first time today. Then I put up a double on 17 and another on 18. The hunt continues.
  12. Hi All, I've never re-shafted a club before. I'd like a new shaft in my TM driver. Is there a retailer that sells shafts with the adapter already installed? Do I need to do it myself? Buy from a pro shop and have them install the adapter?
  13. Just ordered 3 double boxes from the website. I'm not going to hold my breath for the 4.3's.
  14. I picked one up about a month ago. It’s fantastic. Definitely heavy which I love, but has a softer feel due to the milling. I’m loving it.
  15. Weaver Ridge in Peoria last Sunday. A fun but tough course for this high handicapper. Fairways and greens looked great. Rough was thick and needed a trim. You needed a 9 iron or more loft to get any air under your ball. That's a good way to add a bunch of strokes in a hurry. Man, prices are so much more reasonable down there. $60 to ride during a prime weekend slot. That's a great value.
  16. Same. The last month has felt like playing a round in a swimming pool.
  17. Taylormade logo is also very bad.
  18. I’m wondering about the value of getting fit by a single OEM. I’m considering going to an OEM to be fit but I am worried that it may be a waste of time because of the lack of different head options. Thoughts?
  19. I played a course last weekend with a good deal of long rough/prairie grass. My driver wasn't working and I managed to burn through my sleeve of Ksig 3.2's so I started playing a Titleist NXT Tour from the bottom of my bag. Couldn't buy a green. The NXT kept sliding off the back and wouldn't grab. The amount of spin the Ksig generates on the green blows away comparably priced cheap non-urethane balls. My local is still out of 3.2's so I immediately paid the $5 shipping and had a double box sent to my door.
