    Last 2 rounds I shot 89 and 87, that's very good by my standard... Have a T-time tomorrow at Wyncote in PA... If U are close to it, then U should play it, highly recommended. Mongrel and your buddy should try there, not too far from Pilgrim Oaks and I take Wyncote over Pilgrim Oaks anytime

    I've put a Taylormade SLDR TP 460 10.5 in the bag. It's set to about 9.5 degrees with the weight a little toward the draw side. It's the white colored one. I have to say this is one of the best looking drivers at address. The head has a great shape to it. I can really work the ball with this club. Sunday I face an uphill dogleg right and hit a perfect fade up the hill.

    Unfortunately, since I only play about twice a month my short game has gone to hell. I can't seem to putt or make anything. I actually chili dipped a chip shot and that's something I haven't done in quite a while. I feel lucky if I make a 6 footer.

    As for my drives, though, I'm hitting them long as ever. This club does make a difference for a high spin player.

    For reserves, I've got a Ping i25 driver with a PWR 70 Stiff Flex, 9.5 and it's a bomber. Doesn't look quite as good at setup as the White SLDR Driver. I've also got a Titleist 913 D2 with Aldila RIP Phenom....definitely wins in the feel department and when hit flush is the longest of the three.

    There's a new member in our club. A young guy (early 40's at most) who bags a SLDR driver. One of the silver heads. He put an X flex Fuji shaft in it cut down to 44" and he chokes down another two inches. He has a short backswing well short of parallel and a full follow=through. Big guy built like an NFL linebacker. Trajectory is so high that it took me two rounds to be able to follow it. Tour distance maybe 20-30 yards past mediocre PGA guys.

    Hello!
    I totally forgot about this place.
    Got my game under control this past winter. Down to an 8 index. We drove back to Long Island mid May and I froze my ass off in the 50-60 deg weather for a month. Now that it's finally back to the 80's, my game is again under control.
    Still playing the G15 driver with a little lead tape on the back, makes it a bit more forgiving.
    I had a Titleist fitting in florida in April. After an hour of changing shafts, my 910d2 was going really good. Then tried the 917d2 head. Same numbers. So then i asked the fitter, could i compare the G15? Same numbers!! So i guess I saved $550.
    Having trouble lately with my Scotty, so i'm back to the Odyssey. Face balanced is better than toe balance, for me.
    Can't wait to get back down south!
