  1. Thanks for the input. I'll probably go with regular flex for now at +1/2" over what he measures at, like you said. Then likely once he grows out of this set it'll be time for a fitting. That's kinda what we did for my other son, but they are totally opposite types of players. The older one is a keep it in play and aim for the middle of the green type while the younger one is gonna hit driver every possible chance and then some and I don't think he even sees the middle of the green unless that's where the pin is. Thanks everybody for the input.
  2. If you’re making putts then nothing is wrong.
  3. I'm putting together a new set of clubs for my 13 year old son. He's moving out of a Ping Moxie kids set and into his first full set of clubs. I already have the clubheads, Cleveland TA5's. I need some input on the shafts. I ordered Graftech Lite graphite iron shafts in R/S flex and I need some recommendations on how to cut them. He swings pretty aggressively and can hit his driver about 200 yards on a solid strike. I'd like suggestions on how to trim the combo flex shafts in his irons.
  4. One more question for those who coach: what criteria do you set for being awarded a varsity letter? I hadn’t really considered this before but I’m leaning towards something in the neighbor of qualifying for the active lineup in 50% of matches. Let me know your opinions. Thanks! Also, I when I get a chance I’ll kinda wrap things up in a post. Thanks to everyone who commented. I really appreciate it.
  5. Update to the season. We hosted a match last Thursday and we finished first out of three teams, which is awesome. Now for the bad news. Our team is made up of 4 players from my school and 3 from a neighboring district. The neighboring district has gone online for the next two weeks and they've decided that their kids cannot participate on the golf team during that time. So that really hurts.
  6. Another question for the group. We have a home match on Tuesday but Monday the course is going to deep tine the greens. How do you handle that with rules, etc? I'm assuming that once on the green you can move the ball, no nearer to the hole, so that you aren't sitting in one of the holes from the aeration. Other than that, good luck. On a side note: thank you very much for all of the input, it is greatly appreciated.
  7. Golf pride tour velvet full cord. No glove & when they get slick I hit them with the pressure washer. This’ll make them like new at least once.
  8. I was playing a Diablo Tour when I usually play a pro V or the like.
  9. You’re going to have a hard time launching a 15.5° hybrid.
  10. I currently have a titleist ts2 hybrid with a HZRDUS smoke shaft that I like very much with one exception. The 9th hole at my club is a par 5 that has a fairway that funnels everything to the right and behind some very tall pines. My previous hybrid allowed my to hit it over these trees and often onto the green for an eagle attempt. With this new hybrid that shot is much harder. This is the only spot where the old hybrid is better so I don’t want to go back to it. I’m looking for a higher launch shaft for this shot.
  11. Why no 3 club practice round? Won’t that help them develop new shots?
  12. This will definitely be what I do. That is a spectacular idea. Thank you very much... and thanks to everyone who has replied, I appreciate the input.
  13. Another quick question for the group. Are you in favor of a compiled average for qualifying of a certain number of rounds or a one round qualifier for each tournament?
  14. Update: we had our first tournament today and placed 2nd out of 4 teams. So we’ve got that going for us. Which is nice.
