A lot like kissing your sister


Recommended Posts

I know I'm not the only one this has happened to so I was hoping others would chime in and commiserate with me.

I played Saturday and all day my irons killed me. I just started gaming my. MP68 s with kbs tours in x flex in place of my MP 60s with 5.5 px. I have been pushing them badly and hitting them shorter than the 60's. Anyway, I come to a par 3 153 yards. Normally that is a comfortable pw but in light of my ball striking I took it and my 9 iron. I choose the nine and proceed to hit the push off the green pin high. At this point I am aggravated so I toss another ball down grab the pw and hit it firmly. Feels like pure butter and a gentle draw that hits and bounces once and roll in the hole! WTF!!! So I hit a hole in one as the second guy. I know we say the second guy is really good but [email protected]%$!! All I could do was shake my head and laugh but I will have to admit it was disappointing. Anyone else have this happen?

Yep, four days after I got married, I junked one into the trees on a 170 yard par 3 and then dunked the reload...for a 3, btw.

ps. PX5.5 and KBS-X is almost a flex and a half apart, what were you thinking?

The kbs's are soft-stepped. The mizuno fitting guide had me right at an x. They feel perfect when I put a good swing on them.

Not blaming the equipment in the least. Love the setup, just have to stop getting so quick at the transition.

I had a somewhat similar situation. Dogleg par 5, first drive went OB. Second drive (third shot) i tried to cut the corner, punched out from the trees with my fourth and left myself 145 to the hole from the center of the fairway. I holed out from there for a par 5. A bit bittersweet, but I don't get the comparison to kissing your sister

[b]Because it was a good experience but not all that satisfying. [/b] I chipped up and made my par on my first shot btw.

Apparently some of you aren't old enough to remember the phrase "A tie is like kissing your sister."
[/quote]

We're old enough to realize the phrase came from [i]somewhere[/i].

you can hit a pw 150? but used PX 5.5? thats kinda weird
[/quote]

Man, are you kidding me.....this is GolfWRX.....where the boys hit 200 yard Gap wedges.....and the men hit 470 yard Zolex powered bombs with Senior flex graphite shafts because they're only swinging at 50%.

Get with the system man!!
