TaylorMade R7, 9° driver
No other woods
Callaway X20 Tour irons
120-ish mph club speed

Used to regularly shoot about 6-8 over. Now I'm at about twice that :|

I hit my 3 iron 200+, so no real need for fairway woods. I hit my 9 about 160+...

I can go 200+ with my 3 iron if I get all of it and it actually doesn't take a huge slice. Much more consistently straight and about as far if I use my hybrid. I think it's like an 18 degree Nike CPR.

I just played Sunnyvale on Sunday. Nice course, decent price, shitty snack shack management, not the friendliest pro shop. Got stuck behind slow groups and after only 8 holes in 3 hours (and me and my friend were in a cart) we called it and went back in and asked for a partial refund/voucher for 9 holes or something. Guy looked at me like I'd just asked Wall Street to make a kindly donation of $1,000,000,000 to the nearest homeless man.

Snack shack little asian lady on the 3rd hole has a sign that says domestic beer - $4, import beer - $5, cocktails/hard stuff - $6-$8. I ask for a can of Stella and she goes ok, hands it to me, I hand her my card, she swipes it and gives me the receipt to sign...and it says $6 on the receipt. I'm like "wtf? Your sign says this should be, at the most, $5." she just goes "you sign you want beer". Signed it, then found out she charged the guys behind me $4 for a gatorade instead of $3.50 like her sign said. Asked the management in the bar upstairs and they go "oh, yeah she's one of the manager's mothers or something so we can't really do anything about her. Sorry she overcharged you." :|

Let's be honest here - I know I'm going to be ripped off if I don't bring my own brew anyway. But at least be fucking honest about it.

Remember Rodney's tour bag in Caddyshack? With the tap. Yeah. We need that to be something for reals. Right now.

I carry a 9 Driver Wood and a 9-iron. I don't think I enjoy it that much though.

If you stood on the proper side of the ball I could have hooked you up!

Swing speed is only important if timing and contact are good.....

I LOVE golf. Only get to play every other month if I'm lucky.

I hit my Driver about 150yards....3 iron about 115, PW about 65........

Anyone want to go play? $100/hole, birdies double


Callaway FT-5 Driver, Callaway Diablo Tour 3 metal, Titleist 755 P-5iron, Titleist 690mb 3&4 iron, Vokey 56 & 60 wedges.....putter depends on the day, usually my Cameron Newport or my Oddyssey Mini-T. If I play regularaly I put the 690mb irons in the bag, but usually don't play enough to break out the blades anymore.

I've been taking my boys (11 & 8) out to the little Par3 course at Las Positas. That's about all I have time for anyway.

My swing is fucking garbage now the mechanics are way off since I separated my shoulder.

I'm hoping to go out and play next week....its been a few months and I'm dying to play. I love golf

...and I was just kidding about the $100/hole if anyone wants to go play sometime . I'm honestly all over the place with scoring. One day I'll shoot 10 over, next day 1 under....no method to the madness, probably what keeps me coming back....hahaha. I don't have a USGA handicap anymore, but my yardage/scoring app estimates I'm a 5, which is probably about right.

I'd love to try out some of the California Am events one of these summers....should probably get back on establishing a real USGA handicap so I can enter and get humbled...

My clubs:

Driver: Titleist 913 - 9.5 degree - A3 Tuned (Face in to counter slices)
Wood: Titleist 913D-H - 17 degree (tuned in)
Irons: Henry Griffits IS-1 - +6 (toe up, custom clubs)
Wedge: Vokey SM4 60 degree - 10 degree bounce
Putter: Cleveland Classic HB1

I've been playing for about 3 years now. I got some instruction and the custom clubs when I got fit. I am worried the instructor/fitter put me on these IS-1's, which weren't cheap, and it was a little pre-mature. I think I should have gotten more understanding of how my swing needed correcting. I am about a 21 handicap, my biggest problem is a slice on drives. My putting needs a little work to get more consistent 2 puts. My mid game is probably the strongest part of my game. I think I have the potential to get under a consistent 10 over, which would be good for me.

Also, I joined Coyote Creek's strokes club, which is now my home course.

Looking for some better instruction without having to pay an arm and a leg.
