I played in our noon game yesterday and shot a 76 with some absolutely abysmal putting and pumping one OB. I made a few or got really close from 15-25ft but from 3-7ft I lipped out every single one. I can say there were a lot of new and interesting pin locations but still I 3 putted 2 short birdie putts. I also 3 putted a 30ft eagle putt after driving a par 4. Overall I was hitting the ball really well but left several strokes out there.

After settling up bets I decided to play another 9 with a couple buddies. One of them I’m giving my old irons to and I let him know he should have them soon. We tee off and I’m pulling up to my tee shot and lo and behold I get a notification that there has been a delivery. We pick up the tee shots and head straight to the house to get them. I quickly unwrap and then and snap a few pictures and then we head back to course because no way I’m not going to hit shiny new clubs!

Here’s some pics of the old sticks and the new ones.

That’s a big difference from stiff to extra stiff in weight, different shaft I assume?
who doesn’t like almost 30g differences? I went from 100g to 130g. Took all of a range session to adjust, but my range sessions can also be like 2hrs hahaha

I went the exact opposite last year. 120g down to 90g and has been one of the best things I’ve done equipment wise - shows the success of a decent fitting!

Made it to New York late last night from Iceland. Waiting at the gate for our flight to Savannah.

Hope to be at the golf course this afternoon to clear the cobwebs out.

Haven’t had a cigar or a good liquor drink in over two weeks.

There ought to be a pile of golf shaft boxes on the porch waiting for me.

Got a text from the head pro at our club that they need a guy for the Interclub ProAm tomorrow. I’m in!

Nothing but golf and more golf until the Morgan Cup now.

Well maybe a little fishing and dove hunting too come September.

It’s 7:30 and I’m already approaching 80 degrees
I shouldn't be so enthusiastic for 50* mornings.... that means snow will be happening all too soon.
