I've been playing these for 5 years now and I really like them. The grips are just now starting to go and I play 3 times a week during the season.

The important thing is to hit as many different brands as you can with the gear to gauge your distance and accuracy. But one of the most underrated aspects of the club is it has to pass the eye test at address. If you're not comfortable looking down at the club at address and it just doesn't look right to you, nothing else matters because you'll never be able to hit it well.

Some of the offset clubs and hybrids I've tried never get beyond address with me because I'm not comfortable with what I'm looking at.

And always check out your local "Play It Again Sports" or "Golf USA" store. They both take used clubs in trade and they have to be in pretty good shape.

I know a lot of people "fudge" their scores, but I've never understood the point of that... why lie, because when you go out and play with someone, you'll get busted.

Unless you play with the same person consistently, you can just chalk it up do having a bad day. I've played with several people who shoot in the high 30s to low 40s on 9, but every time I play with them they shoot near 50. :rolleye:

Don't go with any of the expensive sets, unless you are a very low handicapper. I have some Titleist knock-offs that have extended shafts (since I am 6'5).

you guys hitting steel shafts or graphite? I'll assume the driver is graphite, how about your irons?

I'm playing my brother in laws 20 year old hand me down set of Northwesterns.

Well, the 2 or 3 times a year I get to play.

Glad I could help!

steel all the way. I have a fast swing and the graphite tends to lag behind on my down swing.

I suck, so I have to use steel. I had a set of graphite irons, and I was terribly inaccurate.

Hey, IDEA ALERT....we should do a Huddle golf tournament. If we get enough, we should do captain's choice...maybe make it same weekend as a training camp visit?

    • You miss the point. Taylor was here before. We picked him because of what he could do for our wide receivers not because he had some great knowledge no other person had on the staff. Shula and Rivera and Gettleman studied multiple college systems for months before signing Taylor or drafting McCaffrey or Curtis and would have drafted the same whether Taylor was here or not. They liked the way Taylor developed McCaffrey which showed his talent but Stanford's offense wasn't Taylors idea or unique to him. Shula has a connection to Taylor as early as when Shula was at Alabama.  The debate was whether Taylor was chosen to replace Shula because Shula didn't know what to do to run a college offense and if he screwed up Taylor would replace him. And that Taylor was the reason and most influential in getting McCaffrey. I said it wasn't even close to the truth and this plan predated Taylor and was more thorough and we'll thought out. Everything since then just confirms I was right once again like usual.  
    • Assholes should've never taken it away in the first place.  Me and a couple buddies had a hookup and were all hyped up and planned out going to it... then the NBA had to get all political and take it out on the city of Charlotte and the fans -- which made no fuging sense.  Seriously doubt we'll even get the chance to go again.
    • 6'6" 255.  He'll definitely have some good mentors with JP, CJ and the rest of the D-Line crew. 255 he'll need to put some weight on don't you think?
