  1. Do as much homework as you can on the fitters in your area. Too many people get put into clubs that travelled the farthest total distance on a juiced indoor monitor that end up being detrimental to their game in the real world. Get yourself as educated as you can and tag along with your dad to his fitting so you can help look at the numbers and asking questions while he concentrates on swinging the club and describing what he likes from a looks/feel perspective. Have fun!
  2. I would recommend looking up a Ping fitter in your area and trusting their process. Sight unseen, the i210’s seem like a good place to start. There is also a ton of clubs from 10-15 years ago that fit your criteria on the used market, if you just want to dip your toe in the water to see what you might like.
  3. Ping has irons available with retro spec lofts.
  4. How about the 58.06 bent weak to add some bounce?

    Phil M.

    Maybe Phil is just using his tournament rounds to work on things for his money matches.
  6. A buddy of mine reshafted his i200’s and had to borrow my shaft puller for steel shafts. They were very stubborn, but the heat didn’t permanently mark the finish. He did need some blue away to clean up some heat discoloring. Also, that same stubbornness is in play when installing the new shafts. The bottom of the hosel bore is very tight and it’s easy to not fully seat the shaft if you’re not careful. i love Ping gear but they are quirky as heck for aftermarket club work.

  8. This is the answer. People wondering what, if anything, the USGA is going to do are underestimating the R&A’s influence. > @marmooskapaul said: > All of the dreary links courses in the "old country"...lol...especially Hoylake

  11. I don’t think there is anyone associated with golf’s ruling bodies that want to negate someone’s distance advantage amongst their peers. They seem to be interested in making sure the game at its highest level is scaled appropriately to “fit” on existing championship courses. Watching the last Open at St Andrews it became apparent to me that they were going to do something. The Old Course was a pitch and putt when play wasn’t suspended for wind. They’re going to do something whether we like it or not. It’s naive to think that players at that level aren’t going to continue to get faster or more
  12. I still have my set but I’m back to my z545’s. The Srixon’s have taken on a lot of challengers and keep finding their way back into my bag. I should really stop trying, but I continue to chase the dragon.

  14. Scratch EZ-1 v1 if you can find a set. Plenty of offset with a really thin topline. Definitely not a short blade length however.
  15. Oakley and Ping have longer inseam options.
  16. I believe we are headed towards a rollback on the ball. I’m also very skeptical that it will produce the desired results. The elite players are going to find a way to optimize whatever equipment gets put in front of them. Is high level golf going to be more aesthetically pleasing when guys are hitting more hybrids into greens. If you force them to play a ball that spins like a balata, they’ll just load up on lower spinning, strong lofted irons. They are so well equipped with high speed cameras, Doppler radars, pressure plates, etc that you can’t legislate out of the game. The law of uni
  17. People bring up bifurcation as a possible path forward. How would that work? Where would you draw the line in the amateur tournaments? If you’re trying to qualify for the US Am are you subject to bifurcated equipment? Division III tournaments?
  18. Do you think privately, Jack resents that his invitational didn’t become as highly regarded as Bobby Jones?
  19. Rafa Cabrera-Bello looks like a pretty good value.

  21. My biggest gripe of the MP18 lineup was the square top lines. It looks like they’ve tapered these. I also think the wedges look fantastic. My only nitpicking of this offering is why make the lineup in different finishes when you clearly acknowledge that combo sets are a big part of their market?
  22. > @swizbeatz said: > Went to an AP2 GW which is 50*, absolutely love it. Don’t chip with it, spins less on full swings, misses are much better. Same here. After years of using specialty wedges, the AP2 gap wedge has become a fixture in my bag even when I’m not playing my AP2’s.
  23. Super stroke traxion wrap is listed at 54g in jumbo. I have no personal experience with any of the SS full swing grips.
  24. Scratch EZ-1 in the grind that fits you. Version 2 if you need less offset.

WF as well. I think the world of majors could stand to bring in some new blood to show what else is out there. Players learn courses and it becomes target golf for them. PH #2's only defense to me is the domed greens but if they are soft and wet and the greens slow down it's not a tough track at all. Pebble is another I could see b
