  1. I'm in. I haven't bought anything new in awhile. I am sure that my club Ho card will get revoked, but after doing two complete bag makeovers, I still ((shockingly)) didn't play any better or any worse. I have started selling off the excess and am planning on sticking with 1 bag next year. Titlsist 910 D2 Driver and Fairways Bridgestone J15 DF 3-P Vokey SM4 52° and 58° Scotty Studio Stainless Newport Plain, vanilla, 'get what you hit' clubs. I am, however, turning into a bag ho....
  2. I have had great success step drilling them out. Before you get close to the ID of the shaft, the extension has heated up enough that the epoxy breaks down and it will spin or just pull out.

The feeling of the putter head moving inside after impact? Just want to make sure I understand. Thanks. > > The putter will swing on an arc back to the inside naturally, but the feel I have is that I am pulling the back of my left hand towards the hole the entire forward stroke. There is a minuscule amount of face rotation (due to the arc), but it does not feel that way.
  4. It'll take some getting used to, and I'll miss the old place, but if it is stable and scale-able, I guess I'll adapt.
  5. I like GPS for the ease of use, but nothing beats laser for accuracy. My home course has a par 3 with a pond in front. Bushnell made an error in mapping and it GPS's out to 10-12 yards shorter than it actually is. Sidenote: I have lmao on several occasions playing with guys who have played the course for years and comment to others than you need to add an extra club because "it's uphill" (it's not) or "there is a always a headwind you can't feel on the tee" (really, I feel plenty or right to left...) :swoon:
  6. I have the 52°, 56°, 58°, and 60° sitting in an extra bag just waiting to get back out for a spin. These are great wedges.
  7. High Plains Driver is a great name, you got a solid handle going for you, the quote above your pic is a little troubling Growing up in East Texas, we were blessed with lush, luxurious, grass and I pitched the ball when a simple chip, or even a putt would do. I moved around the country for work and settled in West Texas. It is the polar opposite here. Hardpan, scaggly grass, and my home course has green complexes designed for a ball coming in steep. A few years of trying to hit high, soft pitches to an upside down bowl green from red clay hardpan drove me to the brink of yipping. Once I acce

  9. My 'safety swing' when everything falls apart is a 3/4 (or full at times) push where I line up about 30° left, swing back along my stance line, and shift my plane as far right as I can. I either hit is pretty straight and at worst have a little curve one way or another, but it avoids big curvature. After reading 5 Lessons and Hogan's thoughts on Trevino's swing, I tried to copy it (as Hogan's swing is beyond me.) I don't play like that day in and day out as I don't hit the ball as high as with my normal swing, I lose as few yards, and I am so shallow through impact the ball can't be sitting
  10. ...and I'm out. Went from: Original RBZ driver R11s 3 and 5 woods To: M4 Driver M4 3HL M4 3 Hybrid Ran across a smoking deal and picked them all up at the same time.

Nike Ignite, Nike SQ, Ping G5, Ping G10, and Ping Rapture. These are drivers that act
  12. Cally X-14 Pro Series irons - 6 sets Maxfli Revolution - 4 sets Titleist 690MB/690.MB - 4 sets If I listed every model I bought twice, I'd have 10 or 11 more to add.
  13. Their product, their rules. Authorized accounts can get adapters if I am not mistaken, but the general public can't. I don't like it, but it is what it is. FWIW, the Chinese copies have all rattled or had a buzz sound if you gently tap the club grip down on the floor, while OEM adapters don't. The legal department is probably behind that decision and the decision not to accept a shaft from the consumer to be used in a club coming from the factory. It's all about avoiding that liability in today's world.
