Wedgessssssss
Yes!!! I'm thinking of changing my wedge set up over winter. I haven't had a 'sand' wedge in 5 years and I'm thinking of adding one back in. I only carry 12 clubs now anyway, so I have the room in the bag. Just didn't have much of a need for it. But I'm getting sick of the 20 yard gap between my 50 and my 58. Would really like to find the ES21 wedges to try out but finding them in person has been difficult. Not a brand loyalist but I have enjoyed my Mizuno wedges and would like to try these out. Seems like they might be a big departure from what I'm used to but hey, it's 2020. Why not.

This feels crazy to me, but I’m thinking about grabbing a set of irons with a little softer flex (stiff instead of x-stiff) for sim practice and playing. 🧐 Feel/sound is also different indoors on mats. I might even pick heads that feel better there. So would I really buy a set or irons primarily for indoor sim use?🤪 I just might do that.

Pondering new ogio shadow fuse bag or Callaway hyperlite zero. New something lighter than the RTC alpha bag.
Love the Ogio fuse. While i love Callaway bags the new hyperlite isn’t the best.

Box I opened from THP HQ might throw my 2021 bag into chaos :oops:

I am basically pondering every iron set out there. I want to buy a new set but know I need to wait for the rest of the 2020/21 releases to come out in the beginning of the year.

I can honestly say that I am not contemplating any purchase, which is a rarity for me.

Got fit into a TS3 or the new mizuno driver. It’s really my fault for using internet shaft fittings and getting the same shaft recommendation on 3 fittings and wanting to hit them.

Maddening. Focus had been entirely on new irons.

Was waiting for my wife at dicks sporting good this morning after my round so that we could meet and drive out to my grandmas. They had a demo with the xstiff evenflow white at 8.5. It was basically a mint demo that hadn’t been hit for $329. Thought it was going to be way too much club/shaft for me. I was wrong. Hard ponder engaged.

How much of a difference is there between the ts3 and the tsi3?

Reviews I have seen, seem to indicate the average golfer won't notice much difference at all. I went for the TS2 over the TSI2 for that very reason and the fact that it was less than 2/3's the price

I hit a utility on Friday that sort of made my jaw hit the ground. Now to see if the data backs up the on course awe.

Yeah, if I make the change this is probably the route. $300 is hard to swallow. $550 is off the table.
