Well said. Just shows how good clubs have been for decades.

- Something that continues to go long off the tee in the fairway
- Something that is a fairway finder when needed and long
- Something that high, consistent and helps with par 5’s
-  Something to help with long par3’s and short par 4’s

-  Something metal, lots of them and go the gaps I need
- Something metal, 2x of them and helps me 120y and in
- Putters - limited rotation because I cannot afford misses

Golf is what you make of it.  Play grateful and accepting. We are all lucky to have it.

Rather than expecting lets all try and appreciate instead.

If these sticks were in a nasty old Ping Hoofer this is 10000% the bag of someone that you never play for money, no matter how many shots they give you a side.

This dudes is a monster in the SoCal PGA professional scene. Always seems to be winning in a highly competitive section and a factor at the PGA professional championship. He also has a couple kids that are showing a lot of promise.

My son used to take lessons from Block.  The guy has game still.

 

Oh and his son Dylan only hits it about 350 off the tee.  🤢

Anyone know who made the jumpman headcover? Would love to pick one up…

 

He did a WITB on his IG page and mentioned that it was either TM or Nike that gave it to him as a gift... he's also sponsored by Nike and rocks Jordans.

They were getting work done on the truck so he said it would a game time decision if the P7MC’s went back in the bag

Thanks for the info Greg! I do have a question about the P7MC…why is the fitting club for it a larger head and profile than the actual iron itself?! Demo’d the new irons and straight away noticed the demo 7 iron of the P7MC was larger than that of the actual iron, the sole is thicker and topline/blade length looked larger (from the eye at least). Seemed odd to demo a club that isn’t the same as the actual club you would get!

I love how he's wearing through the number on his iron. This level of player by someone who isnt a fulltime playing professional is unheard of where I'm from, so I'm kind of curious how much someone like mr Block actualy plays while also having a job (I understand his job is teaching golf but most teachers I know barely get to play).

Single-OEM bags are usually boring and uninspired but this one is pretty badass.

Completely agree, I used to love WITB but when I open them and see just all Callaway or Ping or something I click out. At least with Titleist I see some whacky putters or wedge designs. Usually you can just expect the newest stuff but this bag has some serious character and this dude is insanely good

Did he scratch the logo sticker off one shaft? Or was it blurred out?

YESSS….LOVE this bag!!!

 

Those ‘14 TM Tour Preferred MC’s are awesome irons, and every club looks carefully thought out and fully dialed in!

 

And that Jordan headcover with the laces…oooof, I’m in love!! 😍😍😍

 

I had a combo set of Tour Preferred MC/MB and every time I see someone gaming them it makes me want to pull the trigger on a new set…so freaking good!!

When you are playing at this level,  your real job is playing golf and teaching is the side money.  Even though these type of guys are not making millions they can still make a pretty good living 100K plus playing in section events, pro ams, and other smaller level tour events. I would bet that he only teaches 5 hours a week and plays/practices the rest of the time.  I could be wrong on his teaching time but this is usually what happens.
