The question for all eternity - Is golf more fun playing from the fairway or further up the hole in the rough? I think the answer is both depending on recent scores and or boredom. When i can't sniff a fairway for rounds on end i always end up building some short and heavy setup that is a miracle for 2 or 3 rounds before it all goes to hell.

 

Easy answer for me! I have to play from the fairway, cause in Oklahoma and Texas where I been playing you dont have much rough right now LOL.

 

But glad to see you picking it up again! We need some sweet putter, WITB pics by the pool soon.

 

Do you still have your MM Protos Pure?

So ya from one man to another.....I’m jealous of you. There i said it.   All joking aside that’s an incredible setup. Love the baby Scotty for your son. Head cover really completes the look.

Too busy buying cars and washing them to play golf ;)

Refresh my memory. Why didn't the Honma's last?

They had x7's in them, had hand surgery, went to graphite, easier to just put the graphite shafts in my Titleist heads. Ended up liking everything and needed graphite, they stayed in the bag.

That stinks, that the 917 is working out. ;) I was hoping for a 2018 ( M3/M4, Rogue, G400LST, F8+, 917, and anything else that might tickle your fancy) driver shoot out.

 

Give the guy a break he's coming off an injury and learning to play Dad golf. He will come full circle when the rest of his foursome is 20yds ahead every fairway.

 

Trust the process :smilie_cally: :smilie_tm:

 

Have you played with Tai? I can't imagine the other 3 guys that are 20 yards ahead of him.

Been loving the TP5-X ever since I first tried it, haven't used another ball since.

Lol, Greg I've got the 917 D3 in and it's been money.

 

Still trying to figure out the distance with it, my last round I hit some bombs with it, outdrove a guys that's "really long" at my club by a lot on one hole where I didn't feel like I got it very good and then he got me by 20 when I felt I ripped it. Overall, I think it's carrying a long way, just depends on the bounce/roll more than the Epic where I knew I was going to get some roll no matter what.

 

I do love the traditional looks, sound and feel are amazing, and it's very forgiving. The F3 has also been really good, no left balls like in the Epic SZ 3 wood that really cost me a LOT of shots. I can just play for the fade every time which is good, all in all the 917's have been great. I know what's probably going to happen.. when the M4 comes out I'm going to see if I can gain distance and keep the dispersion of the 917.. :lol: :alcoholic:

Tai is internationally famous. The last time we played about a month ago, were standing in line in the dark waiting to pay at Torrey Pines when what do we hear.

Excuse me, are you Mr. Tai ? I follow you on instagram. It was a young man and his dad from Sweden.

I have not, but I’ve seen him drain 100 yard gap wedge at the Oven.

 

It was probably more like a 58* wedge.

Do you think you’ll ever put some graphite in the Honma’s, or is it not really worth it?

I'll probably do a 718 setup with the graphite. Honma's are really good though, I highly recommend them. Just too much time and effort for what I've got going on these days :)

HMMMMM..... All this talk about putting a new bag together. I think you need get with MT and get some irons and wedges made by him!

 

I already have some :) They have Nike swooshes on them :tongue: I thought about it, but they look too much like the old Nike blanks for me to get too excited about it just yet. Titleist and Vokey is hard to beat in the irons and wedges, it's just so easy to mix/match/order.

I’ve done it, and there are occasional advantages. However, if you’re a high spin player, they become virtually useless in more than like 10mph of wind.
