I'm going to drown! For no reason at all!

Last week I broke my driver's shaft in half in a moment of pure stupidity. Fortunately it was the club I was kind of already looking to replace. This week I've gone and hit a few, and from a value/performance standpoint I've come away leaning towards a Ping G400. Anyone here play one?

Also was it know that Rory was about to be a dad?

As a relatively newer poster to this megathread, do y'all ever do WITBs? I'm really curious what everyone else rocks around here.

I'll bite

D - Callaway Rogue Driver
3W, 5W - Callaway Big Bertha Fusion
4I - AW - GigaGolf TRX Irons
SW - Callaway MD3
LW - Ben Hogan Equalizer
Putter - Odyssey Red 2-Ball

I'm not a super Callaway fan boy, but I do really enjoy their pre-owned shop. The only thing I'm not terribly happy about is the irons and the driver. Don't get me wrong, the irons are ok, but I do think that I am leaving some yards in the bag. My reward for when I'm down to 15 handicap is a fitting and new irons.

The driver is not great, but that's probably because I can't hit it for poo poo. One day, I hit 12 fairways, the other, I miss every single one. I'd like to take at least one driver focused lesson, and then get fitted properly.

PS. That Ben Hogan wedge is loving sick

I think mattfl and Petey have the G410 LST. G400 is also good.

Not pictured is the Original Jones Bag my wife got me for my birthday; best gift she's ever gotten me. Unfortunately, it's not great for use on a cart, and it's too hot to walk, which is a mega bummer.

Nike Vr Pro 60' - 10

All are ebay/gumtree clubs except for the 52, 60 and putter. There are some backup clubs that are also off ebay (Odyssey 2-ball, 3-iron and SW from the iron set, 909H 19' Hybrid) but this is the stuff that seems to work best.

My driver had a cracked shaft for a couple of years so I switched to a yellow square Nike driver that also came with some of the other clubs I got off ebay. It made a horrendous noise and I never hit it well so I finally ditched it and got a new shaft for the FTiz. Since the first time I started using it again, I was suddenly hitting my old distance and hitting more fairways. That Nike thing probably wasted two years of my golfing life.

My irons are all 1į flat and standard length the iron shafts are soft stepped 1x from stiff. Driver is 45.25".

I sold the 5w as once I got a 3h I never used it anymore - so now I have room to go back to 54į and 58į wedges instead of just 56į if I want.

God I fucking love Diablo 3 gold, it even paid for this shitty title



Clubs are in my trunk so no pic but here's mine-

Ping G410 Driver, 45" set at 8*
Ping G410 5W set down 1.5* or something
Cally Apex 3+4 hybrids
Mizuno MP20 blade 5-PW, +.5" and 2* upright
Cleveland RTX4 50/54/58, +.5" and 2* upright
Cleveland putter, it's like a Huntington Beach #1 but different.

I don't even know if the putter is still being made, I got it as part of the full bag of cleveland clubs I won on my trip a few years ago and it is working pretty good.

I'm thinking of swapping out my MP20 5i for something else a little more forgiving because although I hit the rest of the set really well, I don't have much confidence with the 5i in comparison. 6i carries 180-185 and my 4hy carries about 200-205 so I need something to fit in there that I can hit high and stop it. My home course has a par three and a par five where that is an important club for me to have.

As this thread knows, I've been searching for a new putter for a few years. The Nike Method Mod 90 and PXG Dagger have been on the shortlist but I could never find one for a decent price. I like both of these putters but I wish I could try them out before buying.

This Mod 90 just got listed on Ebay. Starting bid is $110 so I should be able to get it for under $150.




Meanwhile, PXG is discontinuing the Dagger and has lowered the price to $175. However, it's the version with a TPE insert:



There's an Ebay auction for the solid 303 stainless version that I'd prefer but it's listed for $270 so I doubt the seller would accept $200:

I haven't hit the newest line of PXG woods, but all of the previous ones have been total garbage.

Their irons, however, feel excellent and if the price was competitive with Mizuno/Srixon/Titlist/etc, I'd definitely consider actually buying them.

If I'm ever good enough to upgrade from my M4 irons (I won't be), the veteran pricing on the PXG irons for a custom fit makes it super tempting.

I played a funky course in Houston today called Southwyck. Very strange course. Conditioning was awful, greens had just been punched, the fairways were basically destroyed, and the rough was entirely overgrown weeds.

The first Par 3 you come to is 235 yards. Itís full of blind shots, quite a few elevation changes, and a lot of water as the bayou runs through it. I donít know who they think is playing this course but the layout and conditioning donít mix.

Probably wonít go back.
