Re: What golf gear did you buy today?

2 dozen TaylorMade TP5x for $51. The flea market at my house has a ton of used golf balls, very nice golf store. First time I have seen used ones.

MIZUNO S5 1025E 50* 54* 58* WEDGE SET TRUE TEMPER WEDGE FLEX RH

Used, but about half-price of an original new set. I've never had a proper set of wedges before - just a mish-mash of whatever was left over from previous clubs (T-Zoid True, TP-9 etc). I've used Mizuno irons for most of my golf life, so I hope these will work for me!

Re: What golf gear did you buy today?

After trading in some old equipment I had $250 in credit at RBG. Since I really don't NEED anything I just grabbed a bunch of random crap:

3 hats
Golf ball display case
Fairway wood headcover
Glove
T-shirt
2 workout shorts

Plus I bought a bunch of non-golf related **** for the wife.

Re: What golf gear did you buy today?

Switched my 909 D2 for a 913 D2 today, as well as got rid of my Cobra S5 5w for a 915F 3w.

Yes, I like to operate a bit behind the newest tech.

Cheaper that way. Don't really lose much in the tech anyway when talking drivers.

Re: What golf gear did you buy today?

Just got fit for the Cobra F7 one-length 4&5 irons. Demo day today and was loving the cast over the forged. Longer and higher ball flight. Had to order with non-stock shaft so gotta wait a week.

Super excited to have great ball striking all the way thru the set. Never have been comfortable hitting the 4&5.

Just the 4 and 5 irons, interesting. Guessing to keep correct gaps in your irons you have to bend the lofts, or do they already take that into account?

Loaded up the ball display case I received this week

Re: What golf gear did you buy today?

who's signatures are those and what is the significance of the balls with 9 hole & 18 hole scores on them?

Re: What golf gear did you buy today?

Signatures are from the players when I volunteered at the CME Championship last November. In order: Gaby Lopez, Angela Stanford, MJ Hur, Angela Stanford again, Kris Tamalus and Jacqui Concolino.

The 35s are my career 9 hole lows and the 73 is my career 18 hole low.

They take that into account. The clubs come standard a little stronger lofted than a normal 4 or 5 iron would. They also add weight to the head to keep the swing weight where you want it. I normally carry my 5i about 185 with 200ish total distance. (when I catch it flush) They had trackman set up and I was flushing the cobras almost every shot and finishing 200. Hit my own 5 to compare and theirs at the same length as my 7i was so much easier to hit. My 5i was actually a couple yards shorter on average and I only hit it flush 50%.

I only wanted the longer irons because I love my Apex Pro's, just not good with long irons and didn't want hybrids. Also having 8i-PW in the same length as my 7i would be hard to adjust to I think.

Used these today for the first time since I bought them - in a club matchplay competition.

They are a bit heavier than your average wedge, but they suit me to the ground!

Won 5 & 4.

Re: What golf gear did you buy today?

I have switched to Chrome Soft X soccer balls.

That is all.

Re: What golf gear did you buy today?

black or red? these things matter

i really like the chrome soft balls, but when i play them they are all whites.
as mentioned before itt, i have a good friend (who's a 5 hc) that plays the red soccer balls because he really likes the visual feedback on the greens...they let you know exactly how well you're rolling your putts.
