    I was very content with my prior bag. Hell, I was affirmatively happy. There was not a single piece of gear I was looking to move on from. Some of the spots were among my all time favorites. Yet here we are a month after getting new gear and I donít miss any of the old stuff one iota. I suspect that seems obvious, who wouldnít be excited about a bag full of new gear? But it goes well beyond that. Top to bottom everything in the release has been superb. Iím hitting shots that I didnít have before, hitting more good shots and just loving it. I came home from a weekend where I played 85 holes over 4 days. Others in the group were talking about how they didnít want to play again anytime soon. I was ready to go to the range the next day. The clubs are so addicting and golf is more fun now.

    Iím not sure where Iím heading with this other than to maybe say I feel reinvigorated about the game. It wouldnít have happened without the Grandaddy. Thank you THP and Callaway and the guys on the team.
    Well said Frank! I wouldn't have wanted that week to be any different and so glad it happened. It was like a time machine. It took me back to why I fell in love with the sport and I got to see everyone's reasons as to why they fell in love with the sport and before this event we didnt know each other but yet now I feel I know each of you very well and that if any of us needed advice or anything from each other we would be there for one another. Some may think its about winning a belt but in all honesty it has nothing to do with that belt. I mean we all have a competitive side and want to win, but this event is about building lifelong friendships and memories and seeing just how awesome the hospitality of Callaway really is. It's almost like a rejuvenation for us and the game of golf. It's just so awesome that this sport brought people from all different backgrounds and different walks of life together to become lifelong brothers!

    After reading previous Grandaddy threads, I knew meeting Al would be an experience. @Nate's video from The Grandaddy 2017 was pure gold. Yet, much like most of this experience, words (and video) just didn't do it justice. Al and his, were extremely generous with a matching dose of genuine. And...Al just has that swagger you can only hope to have later in life. I couldn't believe how welcome I felt in the home of a man I'd never met and who'd never met me. What was even more incredible was his excitement over this event. He. Was. Amped!...and his speeches can make you want to run through a wall or grab a tissue. I'll never forget listening to him talk about the event or forget the rest of the fun we had that night.

    I guess, I think it's important to me to highlight the fact that this event wouldn't even be possible without Al and his friends. I know it's been said, but it needs to be echoed. He and his friends were incredible hosts on the most exclusive of courses and they served us like we were there own family. No really. Guys like him and Matt Woods are some of the heroes of The Grandaddy.

    Cheers to you, Al and thanks for letting 12 total strangers have the time of our lives at your house, eat your guacamole and experience a phenomenal golf course that happens to be in your backyard.
    A true host in every sense of its definition. Pretty special.

    As I read about other people’s interest in the new equipment and their varying degrees of options for hitting stuff, I’ve been thinking back to the fitting. If I had done it myself I probably would have picked the same irons and hybrids in the same or similar shafts. I probably would have picked the same 3W and wedges but in different shafts. I never would have picked the driver or it’s shaft. And I seriously doubt I would have ended up in the same Odyssey putter as I was fitted to. The putter fitting was probably the most valuable because it gave me info I can use just about forever going forward - double bend face balance putters are best for my stroke.
