big bag change is in placeI love the new irons....the no offset players cavity back is the thing for me it appears.
Played 2 days in a row for the first time all year...amazing what that does for your game too!
Hit my favorite local par 3....used no tees(yes I know I replaced all the divots very carefully )Hit 6 greens including the pin on the hardest hole on the course, actually thought it was gonna go in....golfers worst nightmare...an ace with no witnesses.....6 pars(3 birdie putts lipped out) 3 bogies...a solid 30 my best of the season so far.
More importantly solid contact on every full swing and a sand explosion out of the one trap I was in to 6 inches...tap in par.
Whatta day! I am inspired now - gonna be hot in pursuit of dead solid perfect!
I'll be playing now till the snow flies!!
Callaway x14's and x16's are going on ebay!!!
Also highly recommend Bobby Clampett's new book.....did you know the average tour player's swing bottoms out 4 inches past the ball? The average scratch player bottoms out 1 inch past the ball? My goal is the later by the end of the year.....I think these sticks will get me there.....plus I only pulled 2 shots today in the 9 holes.
So.....again...I ask -
What's in your bag and why?
My bag now(today)
-Cleveland TA 3 irons 4-9 w/dg r300 shafts
-Wilson staff jp tour grind pitching(50) and sand(55) wedges(vintage butter)
-Mizuno MP 60 lob wedge
-Ping anser 2 (32 in) putter
-Ball Callaway HX tour(www.lostgolfballs.com rocks)
-the Taylor made R510 tp 10.5 wi graffaloy blue shaft and the King Cobra 5 wood with cobra graphite shaft were left in the trunk.....
I am also experimenting with recently obtained Callaway steelhead 3 fairway wood, uniflex shaft....but I am going to spend the rest of the season at the par 3 focusing on iron play.....
If I get enough on the ebay sale of the Callaway sets I may buy a brand new set of Mizuno MP 60's.....the pro I hang with says they play identical to the TA 3's just a little more forgiving......
Hybrid experiment over for now....I am in love with iron play again!!!! I wanna spank the backside of that little pill!!
I haven't had a brand new set of irons since I bought the Ping eye 2's in 89
I think I gotta start working on ms hrstrat57....time to join that country club she has always talked about!!!
