  1. Hi everyone, You've probably seen the Viktor Hovland story about shaving down his i210s. If you haven't, and you're reading this, check it out. I'm wondering if anyone has ordered their 210s this way? If so, any pics? Any reviews? I'm currently playing the 4-iron, and I'm considering adding it for the 5, but I'd like to know how they play. Would consider a whole set if it is advantageous. Thanks!
  2. Like everyone else I'm here to share what's in my bag. I want to do a bit more as well by showing off where I'm starting as my 2020 bag isn't fully set, what I'm thinking of changing, my fitting, what I end up with and how it plays/played. I may go through more about myself but that might take away from the whole WITB theme. My 2019 WITB before 2020 fitting: Driver: Ping G410 Plus - 9° - No Hosel Adjustment - Weight in Draw - Ping Tour 60S - GP 360 Tour Velvet Cord Midsize.Fariway: Cobra F7 - 15.5° - Set in Draw - Weight in Back - Tensei 65S - Trimmed tip and butt - MCC+4 MidsizeHybrid: Ping G410 - 19° - Set to Flat - Alta CB 70R - MCC+4 MidsizeIrons: 4i to 7i Srixon 585 - AMT Tour White S300 - 1/2" Length - MCC+4 Midsize8i to PW Srixon 785 - AMT Tour White S300 - 1/2" Length - MCC+4 MidsizeWedges: Forget which shaft, believe it's a Dynamic Gold Stiff, shafts are unbanded. - +1/2" Length - MCC+4 MidsizeCallaway Mack Daddy 3 - 51°Ping Glide Stealth 2.0 - 56°Ping Glide - 60°Ball - Various mostly X models, went back and forth between Srixon Z-Star XV and TP5X.Putter: Edel E-3 - 36" - 150g counter balance (50g in handle, 100g grip) - Flat Cat Tak Standard - Installed sideways for claw grip. What I plan to change:Driver: The head is staying, I love the 410 Plus from the look at address, the sound, how it controls my spin and obviously the forgiveness. I'm looking at changing out the shaft, when I did my fitting last year I did a lot and well dropping extra cash for a shaft wasn't in the cards. Luckily this stock shaft actually fit me quite well so we didn't have to worry much, but I'm going back for a fitting and testing some shafts won't take long. I'm mainly looking for something I can step on the gas more, I don't feel like I can go all out with this shaft when I'm feeling good.What will go in? Well I'll leave it mainly up to my fitter, they know more than me, I just give feedback when swinging. We know the Accra TZ5 and TZ6 are front runners but something else could perform better or the current shaft. There are a few shaft that I do want to try but who knows.Fairway: This club I have a huge love/hate relationship with, some days I can't miss and will use over the driver even if my driver is good then there are days I can hardly hit this thing especially when I need it. I need more consistency with my fairway especially especially on short par 4s and reachable par 5s. The other issue is this thing is a missile, it's low and piercing flight, great off the tee, absolutely useless into greens unless they're super soft.What will go in? I haven't tested much in store as I can't find a head and shaft setup I like so I'll wait until I'm getting fitted. I have looked at a lot at address and really like the look of the SIM, coming in behind is Maverick and ST200 line. But everything the fitter hands me will be tested and this category is the biggest mystery for me in what I'll end up with.Hybrid: Not going to sugar coat it but I don't hit hybrids well, don't like the look of most at address, I also hit my irons way better and further.What will go in? I'm thinking of ditching hybrids, I'm sure I'll test a few but I'm leaning towards a driving/utility iron. I might just go with a hollow body iron like the P790 or Cobra Forged Tech in a 3i. I have enough height with my irons I don't have to worry much about stopping power but it's more for fairway finders on tight holes I can't hit a wood on and other situations where I need to go ~210-220 in the air. I think that's good for now, I'll continue next post with what I might change in my bag, why and what I'm looking at. Obviously I'll answer any questions or anything like that on my bag, why I'm doing what I'm doing with changing certain clubs and all that jazz. Shoot you can ask me almost anything if you want.
  3. I just picked up a 2019 Scotty Cameron For Tour Use Only Staff Bag. Any one else use one? If you have one, post pictures of yours in the comments, i'd love to see what you guys have.

  5. Asking as a PGA Professional coach. How much would you want a fitting incorporated into your lessons? In the scenario, the coach is not a retailer, so there is no sales motive within the context of the lesson.
  6. During 2020 and 2021 I have bought very close to an entire set of new clubs as I have sought to put together my 'dream witb'. I now have everything I need to assemble them all. The only club components in my bag that won't be new are the heads on my 2 iron and 5i-Pw. This is my specs list for the new bag setup: DRIVER Metal Factory A9 SKY BLUE 10.5* Nippon N.S. Pro Regio Formula B+ Type 65 (Stiff) 66.5g 45.5" 3W Bridgestone Tour B XD-F 15* Fujikura Diamond Speeder FW 7S (Stiff) 78.5g 43.25" UT XXIO Cross Zero 17* Paderson Kinetixx Ballistic 95 IR (Stiff) 99g 39.5" 2I Callaway Big Bertha Fusion 18* Aerotech Steelfiber i80 (Regular) 89.5g* 39.5" 3HY Bridgestone Tour B JGR 19* Accra Tour Z TZ5 95 M5 (X-Stiff) 97g 41" 5I-PW Tourstage TS-201 Athlete Spirit True Temper Alloy Blue Sora (Stiff) 95g 52&60* Kasco Dolphin DW-120G Blue Nippon N.S.

  7. Hello Golf WRXers! Here is something interesting. We got 3 different players with different handicaps, style, approach and setups. I wanted to post an updated WITB of myself and some of my buddies. This aint just about the equipment we use but also some of my personal commentaries on the equipment my buddies and I currently use. Enjoy! Content: - Anthony's WITB - Matt's WITB - Ravendra's WITB ANTHONY'S WITB: Meet Anthony aka "Mr. Stripeshow". He's been playing on and off for a while now but just recently got back into the golf craze. He is currently a 17 handicap, shooting around the 80s and low 90s mostly around new england courses. The common thing him and I share is that we are both super technical and in-depth when we talk about our swing but we still strive on our never-ending journey to have the best feel over our shots. His game in my POV: Long player and fairly consistent with irons but might lack some consistency with his driver. Here is his bag: Driver: Cobra F-Max Superlight w/ stock stiff shafts Wood: Taylormade Burner 7-Wood Hybrid: Titleist 913D2 3-Hybrid Irons: Mizuno JPX 921 Forged 4-Aw w/ Nippon NS Pro Modus tour 120 Stiff Shafts Wedges: Titleist Vokey SM8 56deg and 60deg (bounce and grind: 10S) w/ vokey wedge flex shafts Putter: Mizuno M Craft II Blue Ion (Not shown in the pic) From his bag, the irons are fitted to him. I would always recommend anyone, just like i recommended him, to get a new club fitted rather than off the rack, even though its a free fitting in Dick's or golf galaxy where the quality of fitting isnt as good as club champion or golftec etc. I'd say its better than nothing when youre ready to drop a bag. I think he is really happy overall with the irons. He upgraded from his old Callaway XR irons which were to flexible for his insanely fast swing speed. I went with him for his fitting and mans be pullin up to golf galaxy with 7600 spin rate for his 7-iron using some of the other iron choices brought out (apex pro and srixon zx7). He finally went with the JPX 921 forged because they looked amazing, stats and feel are right, good dispersion and most importantly, because he felt confident hitting them. He was eyeing out the JPx921 for a long time but wanted his fitting session to be completely unbiased. With that, he didnt say to the fitter that he liked the JPX 921 forged. But after trying MP20, Apex pro, ZX7, JPX921, T100, and some others...The perfect match made in heaven was the JPX921. I'd say it was fate because his fitting wasnt just about the numbers but also the feel. Within a month, he broke 90 and 85 with these new irons. Some notes: Upgrading to 120g shafts was a shock at first since his previous irons were like 80g. So playing the first couple rounds, fatigue was definitely felt after making the turn to the back nine. 7-Wood is not a club used often since there is trouble with consistency. Hybrid is a good go-to when faced with rescue shots. Vokeys are great (obviously) because we all know a vokey is a vokey for a reason. The recent putter change to the mizuno putter is yet to be determined since i personally believe your putting skills is as good as your relationship with your putter and in this case it still at its honeymoon phase. Anthony is a great golfer, he golfs a lot. He aspires to be a great ball striker on the course and to shoot lower. I believe he will become so as he builds a solid relationship with his equipmentn Remember, this commentary is based on my (matt) personal observations and feel free to comment down below and Anthony might even hop on to reply Matt's WITB: Meet Matt (myself), after looking at my WITB you can definitely tell im loyal to Taylormade. Why?? because my favorite players on tour are taylormade sponsored?YES But also because i personally think they work really well with me. I am currently a 8.5 handicap trying to go to a 4 handicap by year's end. My distances are not super long but not super short either. My 7 iron goes 180 yards comfortably and im pretty much the biggest golf nerd within my friend group. Heres my bag: Driver: Taylormade SIM2 10.5 (1 click lower becoming 9.75 deg) w/ Project X evenflow Riptide 6.0 60Stiff Shaft Wood: Ping G400 5-wood with Alta CB Stiff shaft Hybrid: SIM2 Tour Rescue 4-H w/ Mitsubishi Tensei AV Raw Blue Stiff Shaft Irons: Taylormade P790 5-Pw, 1 degree flat w/ Nippon NS Pro 950GH Stiff Shafts and MCC Align grips Wedges: 51deg Titleist vokey tvd, 56deg Titleist vokey sm7, 60 deg Cleveland RTX4 Putter: 2020 Scotty Cameron Special Select Newport 2 My Driver, irons and hybrid are fitted, and the rest are clubs i simply cant replace because i love them and hit them really well. My best fitting experience was irons and driver, and both i got fitted by the folks at Taylormade in the midwest region. Justin Holt fitted my for my irons in 2020 and they have been so good to me. I always like a bit more forgiveness because i dont play as much as i would like to. And i really think the extra forgiveness gives me more consistency, I like a lighter shaft because i can launch it higher and i need the spin since p790s are low spin. I love the way they look, especially when at first sight and from afar people can mistake them as blades HAHA. My driver was fitted by Evan Weeden and he is a champ as well. My old driver was the M4 and i drove it about 240-250 yards carry and the consistency was just insanely bad. Evan made me realize that fitting a driver isnt just about the head but more importantly the shaft. Choosing a driver with a stock shaft off the rack, 9 times out of 10 it wouldnt fit you well. I like the smaller face of the SIM2 better than the SIM2 max and i have the perfect spin with the SIM2, just about 2000rpm. Now, i carry my driver about 270 yards carry and the total would be about 290 yards. I can push it to 305 yards total if i hit my driver with 90% power but i am more than happy to be 280-290 yards straight down the fairway with 80% power. This new driver made it possible for me to shoot my personal best of 74 (2 over), which blew my mind. I think course management is super important but i also think having the right equipment can also lower your score. Because sometimes having equipment optimized to your swing can mean the difference between shooting in the 70s and 80s. Although im a huge taylormade fanboy, i gotta give it to Ping Fairway woods because they are so easy to hit and effortless. Ping g400 is my all time favorite wood but the taylormade sim2 max woods are not far off, i really hated the sim 1 fairway wood cuz from address they look awfully closed to me. Thats abit on my setup and my golf game, comment your thoughts and input! I have more details on my woods and hybrid on my previous WITB on my page Ravendra's WITB: Meet Rav aka Brooks' no.1 fan aka Mr. GottaCheckMyWHOOP, he (relatively) recently started golf and is also in the golf craze. Amongst other things, he's the guy i talk to about golf, golf, and golf. I gotta say...We love golf equipment and golf trends and fashion i should say. He is currently a 29 handicap shooting around low 100s and high 90s. He aspires to break his personal best every time he plays with a fresh fit of course. Since hes relatively new to the game, his approach to equipment is pretty smart i would say. Theres no need in investing a load of cash into a beginner set. Paying a lot for game improvement irons are a waste in my opinion. But you still want a pretty good beginner set to start you off. It could be brand new but older generation clubs or you could get cheaper clubs that has great value for money. Here is Rav's bag: Driver: Callaway Edge 10.5 w/ stock shaft Wood: Callaway Edge 3-W Hybrid: Callaway Edge 5-H Irons: Callaway Edge 6-Sw w/ stock regular shafts, Callaway XR irons 4-5 Wedges: Kirkland Signature Wedges 52, 56, 60 Putter: Odyssey White Hot Blade Putter For $500, this set is bang for your buck! Good manufacturer and great quality for the price. Rav definitely agrees when i say its better than the Strata irons you see everywhere on driving ranges, especially the quality and looks of the driver. The only argument for this setup is that the kirkland wedges come with really bad grips, the logo gets in the way of lining the wedge square. These irons help with launch and forgiveness and offer good distances for beginner and intermediate players. If there were a Costco sponsored player on the pga tour, this would be their bag. When he got them, he was raving about the quality and how good they felt on the range. I took his word with a grain of salt since i havent seen them in person. But i would fairly say they look way better in person and they are really forgiving. Super solid first set! But i personally would not recommend it to people with super fast swing speed because they dont come in extra stiff. Rav is pretty good with his irons, started hitting down on it and compressing the ball. His hybrid has been bombs and becomes his go-to long club in the bag. He struggle with the driver at times but when hes feeling it becomes the go-to club off the tee. The Kirkland wedges are really good, especially for beginner-intermediate players because they are super spinny. Playing rounds with Rav, i noticed his irons are enough to get him to the front of the green and he leaves it all to his short game. These wedges are extra spinny so he is confident to stop the ball near the pin which i think is a plus and a confidence booster. The wedges are definitely recommended, especially at a price of $180 for 3 wedges. Dont believe me? Watch the review at TXG Now Rav is eyeing out a new set once he shoots more consistently. He loves the Srixon ZX5 irons because they look incredible and still offer a lot of forgiveness and feel. He got fitted already but still wants to be more consistent before dropping the bag. What do yall think? Wait and become more consistent or drop the bag because it might help his game more? We love golf and wanted to share our bag and setup. Thanks for reading. These are some more Pics from our WITB: Note: My Headcovers are from Pins and Aces and Dormie Workshop
  8. Been playing the original Nike forged blades since the mid-2000’s. Managed to find a good looking 2-PW set of the Nike VR Pro blades on ebay and I couldn’t resist. The upgrade has been well worth it. New sticks feel great.
  9. Hybrid or Long Iron….I currently have the Titleist 712u 3-Iron in play, but im thinking about putting a hybrid in play. I feel that a hybrid will be easier off tee and even easier for catching up on par 5 or even long par 4s. Only thing I am worried about is, it will be harder to keep a hybrid low (stinger type shot) to keep under trees and strong wind. What yall think? Any Hybrids out there that can help me with this, ie low trajectory i guess.

  12. Just saw this a little bit ago on an instagram story repost by The Buck Club. Anyone got any ideas what this could be? Or seen it anywhere else? It looks EXTREMELY similar to the Sim line, specifically the OG Sim Max, but says BURNR so it's making me wonder if they're reviving the Burner family or what. It doesn't say Taylormade anywhere on it in this pic but there's no mistaking who manufactured it.
  13. Hello WRX! Just started getting active on here again. I've always enjoyed this section of the forum so I figured it would be fun to do one of these posts. Thanks for checking this post out! This is my first WITB a long time and lots in the bag has changed over the last few months. A few ageless warriors, some new stuff, some stuff straight off the BST, some clubs stolen from my Dad. It's something of a bizarre blend but I think it keeps things interesting. A little about me -- I'm a retired high school golfer who couldn't hack it in college. Now I'm anything between 2 and 5 depending on my location in the world and the time of the year and try to stay competitive by playing in Men's Club Tournaments when I can. Hopefully will get seriously back into tournament golf soon as well as get some solid time to practice and take a crack at some long overdue swing changes. Frankly, I'll just be happy if I can get outside. Hopefully I will be able to get outside in some better lighting tomorrow ... not the greatest lighting at this point in the evening, but in the meantime here it is: Driver: Taylormade SIM (9 degrees) Shaft: Graphite Design YS-6X (tipped 1.5") Grip: Golf Pride New Decade MCC +4 3-Wood: Taylormade V-Steel Tour Spoon (13 degrees) Shaft: Graphite Design YS-6S (tipped 1.5") Grip: Lamkin Crossline Full Cord Midsize 5-Wood: Taylormade SIM TI (19 degrees) Shaft: Graphite Design YS-7X (tipped 2") Grip: Golf Pride New Decade MCC +4 Hybrid: Callaway RAZR Tour (21 degrees) Shaft: True Temper Dynamic Gold X100 Grip: Royal Grip LinkTech Cord Irons: PXG 0311T Gen 1 (5-W) Shaft: Nippon Super Peening Blue X (Soft Stepped x1) Grip: Royal Grip LinkTech Cord Gap Wedge: PXG 0311 Forged Gen 1 (50-12) Shaft: True Temper Dynamic Gold Tour Issue S400 Grip: Lamkin Crossline Full Cord Sand Wedge: Cleveland RTX ZipCore (54-12 Full) Shaft: Nippon Modus 130 Stiff Grip: Golf Pride New Decade MCC +4 Lob Wedge: Titleist Vokey Cold Forged (58-04 K) Shaft: True Temper Dynamic Gold S200 Grip: Royal Grip LinkTech Cord Putter: Ping i-Seires 1/2 CRAZ-E L 45" Grip: Super Stroke Tour 1.0 Split Ball: Snell MTB X Black, ProV1 Other: Jones Utility Trouper, Bushnell Tour V2 (the one from 5+ years ago) -- eats through batteries but works like a charm, a mix of headcovers, a ton of superglue. Other Clubs Around the House: - 2017 Taylormade P790 UDI 2-Iron (17 degrees) with HZRDUS Smoke 6.0 - Adams Idea Prototype 2-Hybrid Aldlia By-You 80S (18 degrees) - Vokey 256-14 Raw - Vokey 258-08 - Taylormade R11 TP 2 Rescue (16 degrees) - UST iRod CB 110X
  14. So..heres my setup..nothing too complicated but it gets the job done really well. I am currently a 10.4 handicap, shooting around low 80s from about 6850 yards. I basically got tired of my game improvement irons and decided to get rid of them shovels and get something more player's-irons like but still having forgiveness and workability. Tried out a lot of clubs and got fitted for new irons... Driver: Taylormade M4 10.5* w/ Mitsubishi Tensei CK Orange 60 Stiff Shaft 5-wood: Ping G400 w/ Alta Stiff Shaft 4-Rescue: Taylormade SIM2 Tour Rescue w/ Mitsubishi Tensei AV Raw Blue Stiff Shaft 5-PW: 2020 Taylormade P790 w/ Nippon NS Pro 950GH Stiff Shafts and MCC Align grips, 1* flat, 1* weak lofted Gap Wedge: 51* Titleist Vokey TVD M grind Sand Wedge: 56* Titleist Vokey SM7 10S Lob Wedge: Cleveland RTX-4 9FULL Putter: 2020 Scotty Cameron Special Select Newport 2 **Read Below Honestly, I love these clubs. I hit them well and they perform exactly how i wanted them to. I had tested a lot of irons from Mizuno, Taylormade, Callaway, Srixon, and Ping at a PGA Tour Superstore but the P790s really shocked me with the feel and flight. Taylormade came to my golf course and did a fitting session open to locals and i signed up since it was free and i wanted to get fitted for P790s. I was hitting the P790 7-iron about 205 yards on average with the ns pro 120 shafts but the ball flight was low and about 4000 rpm spin. But after changing them to something lighter and higher launch (ns pro 950gh) i had the results i wanted: about 6400 spin and carried 185 yards. Upon changing to these irons, i broke 85 for the first time a month after putting them in my bag and have been happy ever since. My driver headcover is from Pins and Aces and they are AWESOME. For the price, best headcover in the game, really high quality and stylish i would say, great company. I would like to get a dormie workshop headcover one day but thats when i will upgrade my driver, which is not in the near future. I love my driver, it is pretty consistent and carries about 285 yards. Its not super long but it gets me in the fairway. My 5-wood is my ultimate tool in long par-5s, it carries 250 yards and this thing is like a canon. I suck at hitting woods except for Ping woods. On address it looks amazing and aspires confidence. The newest club in the bag is the SIM2 tour rescue. I was surprised to get this club since people say its hard to hit bla bla bla and i should get the SIM2 max hybrid instead but i keep on over drawing the SIM2 max hybrids cuz i feel like they look awfully closed-face on address. This rescue is amazing...low ball flight, carries 220 yards and great for getting out of thick roughs. Thats pretty much it for my WITB..my wedges are pretty good, they get the job done. I love the RTX-4 cuz they are really spinny. Vokeys and Vokeys, we all know what they can do, no mistakes there. The Putter is relatively new but it works really good. I previously played a super soft taylormade putter which ends up short on my misses but the scotty really gives an extra push and my missed become inside two feet past the hole which is what i want. Nothing feels like a scotty but i would also take that with a gran of salt since putters should mainly look good on your eyes and it all depends on your own feel. ONE LAST THING... i always use Nike golf shoes because i feel like theyre sporty and not boring like FootJoy (no offense) but the thing with Nike golf shoes is that they are not as good quality as FJ and nowhere as comfortable as FJ. So overall, FJ actually wins in comfort among any other brands. HOWEVER....... Rory Mcilroy's new nike shoes just popped up on the nike website and your boy gotta cop. AND LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHING.....NIKE....YOU FINALLY DID IT....no joke its one of the coolest, sporty yet classy golf shoes nike has come up with in recent years (in my opinion)...and guess what??? THEY ARE SUPERRR COMFORTABLE...PICS BELOW... the leather is screaming good quality and the laces make them look classy and i love the fact that it is really simple.. just white with grey accents. And i like these soft spikes better than the ones on the infinity tours. Awesome shoe Nike!!! FEEL FREE TO COMMENT...LET ME KNOW IF YOU LIKE OR DISLIKE AND MAYBE I COULD GET SOME OPINIONS FOR RAIN GEAR AND GOLF APPAREL. THANKS!!

This is my first time spending serious money on brand new clubs so I am very intrigued to test all the brand new Sub 70 Golf equipment I added. So glad I found out about Sub 70 because from all I have heard and seen is that you cannot beat their quality and prices. I was able to order my customized clubs with help from their online fitting tool on 2/28/21 and received all the equipment by 3/5/21. They send you a personalized Thank You note as well as some free gear when you purchase with them. Jason Hiland, the owner and creator, sends you his business card as well if you have questions or concerns and want to get in touch with him. I was able to order 9 brand new clubs from Sub 70 for probably half the amount I would've had to spent at a Large OEM. I'm glad I was able to support a small business that is just trying to give golfers high quality equipment for affordable prices. I'll definitely give a proper review once I have been able to play with them, but everywhere you hear and read about the Sub 70 equipment, you can't find any upset customers. So if you haven't already, I highly suggest visiting Sub 70 Golf. GlobalGolf Shoutout: I was able to get my Srixon Driver in "Very Good Condition" plus the headcover for only $160! You can tell that the driver is not brand spanking new, but it still looks like it has barely ever been used. I was also able to get some good deals on my 3 CBX wedges from GlobalGolf last year as well which is why they were able to stay in the bag. I also highly suggest visiting their site (GlobalGolf) if you need to find some golf bargains and can't afford to buy brand new clubs. Ordered that Srixon Driver on 2/28/21 as well and also received it by 3/5/21 too. The site also always has some great deals and coupons to get even more bargains. Photos:
  16. Well I am trying (once again) to end the search for the magic club(s) and instead stop buying and just commit to my current bag. that said, I have some nice stuff still laying around. I could sell it all off, pay off my paypal balance and come out ahead a couple hundred bucks, or I could build a “backup” set or a “travel” set. I’ve heard of such things before, but never really built one. I have a great set of Srixon Z545 3-GW, some RTX4 wedges, a Ping g25 4w, an Adams DHy Pro 21*, a Ping G400 Stretch, a nice Cleveland Huntington Beach putter, and a great cart bag to store it all in. While I don’t have a “driver” in the bag, the stretch is long enough to fill that role, giving me essentially an entire mishmashed back up set. I guess my hesitation is...I totally recognize the risk of damaged equipment, but if I was traveling to golf, I think I’d want my own sticks? And then there’s $5-600 sittin in a bag in a closet, doin nothin productive. Do you have a backup bag? A travel bag? Any advice?
