which scotty/specs? I might be interested if the price is right. using this KS1 is nice, but i'd like a heavier blade and i dont wanna spend the 80 bucks for the weight kit for the KS1, so why not spend a few hundred on a Scotty cameron?

How much are you looking to get for it? im assuming you didn't have anything adjusted? or did you go get a fitting and have it set up for you?

Itís basically stock off the shelf only thing Iíve changed is put a superstroke grip on it. I swapped out the weights but I have the stock ones too.

Hereís some current pics and also a TM Spider I have.

I have GAS and am a tinkerer at heart but I refuse to look at putters because that is an acquisition syndrome I simply can not afford.

Rocking a Yes! Gina blade for as long as I can hold out.

Late night online golf shopping has caused some dents over the last few weeks. I can't not buy clearance items. It's a problem.

PXG 0811X driver
Wilson Infinite Putter
and now a Cobra Aerojet 3 wood

At least I got those heavily discounted.

I'm staying away from putters because every time I touch an oddessy blade AI one it feels great and I don't wanna spend $750 on a single club. I'll never touch a Scotty Cameron or LAB or those Bettinardi or whatever. I'm better off not knowing what I'm missing.

Where are you shopping that those putters are $750?

Hilariously, they were considering opening for afternoon play. The squall lasted an hour, temps went up and the sun came out. My tee time for Thursday is safe.

donezo.

As an aside, it was 70 degrees yesterday in Michigan, so i went to the range.

I'd been playing on a sim for months, so i hadn't seen how any shot i took improved outside of the computer. I'd had a loft issue and my swing was awful/wooden before the end of last season. So with some lessons and practice and setup changes i went today expecting nothing and was a bit sore from working out that morning. However, my shot shape was night and day from what it was before. I feel like now i get a little -too much- loft from some of my clubs, but the distances were looking pretty good with range balls and it was so loving awesome to hear that nice click off the face and good travel for the first time outdoors since last year.

For some people's partners the trigger to knowing your joint account is about to take a hit is walking into the PGA Superstore. For others it's hearing the intro music to a TXG/ClubChampion video. For my wife its hearing me say "oh cool, GolfPartnerUSA is having another sale!"

Do you like them in particular? Or is it the price point? I love their zstars, hate the Qstar.

I've run thru most of the big name online only balls. Snell isn't durable enough for me, vice are pretty good at the top end, but not great pricing until you buy like 5 dozen. I like the Cut Grey, and they're cheap, but they have had reported quality control issues.

I kind of like the Q star, but I'm wondering if there is something better. I have a tendency to hook my driver into the woods so I like lower spinning balls.

https://www.todays-golfer.com/equipment/best/golf-ball-robot-test-2023/

these two did some tests with all the balls from 2023 with results, hitting from a robotic arm, this might help you find some comparisons to the ball you're looking for, or a lower spinning ball you didn't expect. I typically hit kirklands or the occasional sleeve of supersofts in a matte finish. I do love a pro v1, but i dont wanna pay pro v1 money.

My excess guitar sold today so I guess I'm going to turn the money into excess golf clubs soon. :v:


I'm thinking of getting some new irons. I'm curious to see how much has changed since my dad/uncles early 2000s stuff.

I briefly considered a set of Takomos before discovering that I could get some forge tec cobras for not much more and with the chance to actually try before I buy. I'm going to try some mizunos and Titleist and maybe even the TaylorMade p790s to compare against the cobras. Hoping I like the cobras the best since they're the cheapest.

are you looking at the Forge Tec, or the Forge Tec X irons?

I have the Forge Tec X, and i'm a big fan of them, they felt really good and look pretty great too. i know the Forge Tec irons are more of a players distance iron, and the X's in between a Game Improvement and PD iron from what reviews have said. Hopefully you like them!

double posting here, but i saw a post on reddit today and i've been too lazy to go to walmart, but apparently they're liquidating their golf sections, someone bought boxes of q star tours for 5 bucks a box, might be worth checking out if you like them.

Anyone ever get shin splints from golfing?

Couple of weeks ago on the first tee, with a brand new pair of FootJoy spineless shoes, my back (right) foot slipped a little on my tee shot. Thought nothing of it, aside from shanking the poo poo out of the ball. Around the turn I was having some pretty sharp pain in my lower left leg.

Played last week and yesterday, pain is constant. Iíve also been doing some running which is new for me, but I started running after I first noticed it. Tonight, went to the range with my son and 3 hours later Iím in pretty decent pain.

Calling my doc tomorrow because Iím really afraid itís a fracture or something.

Yes go see your doc, do not loving wait for it to heal on its own. I hurt myself last September and just started PT last week, don't be me.

Muscle strain, no tears no fractures. Also no PT just rest.

Also no golf for 3 weeks atleast. Which, works out since I wonít have much time in March to play.

Not gonna lie, I am never going to play a hybrid again. Those things are the devil. You can catch a heater randomly and pick up 10+ yards. I put a 4 iron back in my bag and love it. 7 wood also works.

The one thing about LAB putters is you have to get them fitted for your setup. If you donít, the mechanics behind them donít work or train bad habits.
