    Well - I jumped in the buying spree with both feet. I don’t live close to a golf store so all was “online fingers crossed hope I like it purchasing“ Bought as follows:
    FMax Superlite driver ( and a used M2 D which I think I like better though results appear about the same );
    2017 model FMax Woods 3 and 5 and hybrids 4 and 5 ( I am not sure about these and will likely sell off all four clubs )
    Cleveland HB 3 Hybrid ( awesomeness- has made me realize what all the fuss about hybrids is about !)
    FMax irons - very easy to use ( maybe a wee bit too much game improvement looking for me though )
    CBX wedges ( outstanding- these are the cats posterior and are just great to use - so much so I’ve ordered CBX irons !)

    Benefits of being older with grown family is that a guy can go a bit spendy and not worry too much lol.

    I have also changed golf ball - I used to be all about the Pro V1 but now I’m playing E6 soft and Srixon soft and, for me, they work better.

Well, here is the goal achievement: last four rounds played ( Sat Sun of last weekend, yesterday and today ) scores are 89 89 88 88. For me this is simply great and I feel like the long layoff and aging actually did me good.

    I just wanted to share and, perhaps, inspire those who are struggling 😀

    Cheers,

    My story has many similar elements to yours. I had a 7 year hiatus from golf. I am now 59. I never thought I would be able to get my index back to where it was. I certainly don’t have the club speed I once did, but like you, I am finding I can still score. Awesome story! Thanks for sharing it.

    Welcome to THP! And congrats, that’s some steady playing. I rarely have two consecutive rounds within 7-8 strokes of each other, let alone that kind of steady play.
