  1. you can just ratio the cut length of the shaft to the blank weight assuming a bottom bore to ground of 1.25" on your irons For a 36" pitching wedge, that would be a 34.75" cut shaft length (-1/8" for grip cap). So 34.75/40 * 130 (don't know exact weight) = 113 g If 125 g is your minimum 125 * (40/130) = roughly 38.5" to get 125 g, so your shortest length iron at 125 g is 39.75". Not going to work. 5 iron is 38" standard - 1.25 = 36.25 * (130/40) = 117.8 g
  2. Since you would be starting with the same "blank" and building to different lengths, these would be called a descending weight set of iron shafts, because the shaft weight for each club is directly proportional to its length.
  3. There are parallel blanks. You tip trim them for flex and then butt trim for playing length. THere are some threads about them. Tough to get swingweight in the D range as they come out light.
  4. info here might help...' The AMT drawings and tables are in there as well for White/Black/Red and AMT Tour Issue
  5. I play a 27* loft 5 iron as my longest club. I replaced my 24* 4 iron with a 25* hybrid and it is very confidence inspiring. Variable face thickness, good off-center hit forgiveness. If the 4 hybrid is money for you, buy the 5 hybrid of the same model?
  6. Quick check in with the rain up here by Independence Grove 1.75” in the last two says (oct 2-3)
  7. which wedge shafts did you order? Also Accra iseries steels?
  8. Played Strawberry Creek this past Sunday and really enjoyed it. Posted this in the Chicago area thread (I live 12 miles south of the border, and was pleased that it's only 25 minutes to Strawberry Creek!) Played Strawberry Creek yesterday (Sunday, Sep 26) and it was an absolute pleasure. the operative word for the day being fun. Great Rick Jacobson course with some drivable par 4’s, nice mix of par 3’s. The course also features nice elevation changes, the total variation on course being 50 feet Big South-Southwest winds kept us on our toes and warm if you ever have a chance to play there, I wholeheartedly recommend going so.
  9. Nice on having the latest revision on the White! I found I have the Black and Red as well.

  10. I’ll come back to this later tonite believe I have the AMT drawing as well Might be pre-color versions of AMT
  11. I'd say 2/3 hybrid is anywhere from 16-20, with 4 hybrid being 21/22* and 5 hybrid being 23/25* I dropped my 4/5 wood (which was my alternate driving club to Driver), for a 40" 2 hybrid with the hopes of it being easier to hit off of the deck, and long enough as a driving club. 22* hybrid is my next longest club.

  13. I'm looking forward to play Strawberry Creek on Sunday. Another Rick Jacobson course. I know that course is sort of in the IL/WI gray zone, but I'm posting in this thread anyway!
  14. I played the Irish last fall, so just got a few glimpses of Whistling Straits over the dunes. Caddy said that you basically have to aim at certain points on your drives, with some being blind. Like aim at the darker bush on the left out there. I guess that's why the have their caddies.
  15. Good idea to work on bunker practice before Kemper. Sounds like you have played there before. Jacobson did a nice job with the bunker re-design there years back. supposed to be warmer Friday, with some moderate winds. Sounds like a great time, enjoy!
  16. Note for all peeps playing now or post-Ryder cup. Inquire about timing of aeration. Shepherd's has done some good work to their drainage and their greens are in fantastic conditions. Also, their new patio/firepits are really nice. I like Thunderhawk, but conditions can be a bit hit or miss on the greens (slow or fast).
  17. Yes, 9th green, I believe. Don't know many, if any, of the others. Although I thought one looked like Pinehurst, but probably not.
  18. My info from 1.5 years ago from a friend was that Glen Oak was another level completely from Naperville CC. Much more expensive.
  19. Tee times seem to be required at most clubs when they weren't before. where are you located now mci711?
  20. it was the CDGA Senior Amateur and took place Monday-Wednesday this week.
  21. These days I'm happy to call the pro shop when I am faced with a group in front that has a gap in front of them and is playing the "I don't see you behind me, even if you have been on our tail for the last 3 holes." Give the course a chance to sort things out.
  22. Tis' the season. Called The Preserve wanting to book a time for next Wednesday. Thankfully, the considerate pro shop employee let me know they were closed next Tuesday to aerate the greens. He then helped me set up a tee time for Monday. Share the info
  23. Steven’s Point CC is another that got the DuPont settlement money and Craig Haltom (Oliphant golf, Sand Valley, Club at Lac La Belle) worked with them to renovate the golf course
