    I have been swinging the Adams Speedline 9032LS with a Voodoo shaft that Drunk Tank sold me but I picked up a Srixon Z-Star 10.5 degree driver with a Diamana Blueboard shaft. Also got a 3w and 5w and 4hybrid to round out the set. So now I am all Srixon in my bag aside from a Callaway SW and my Odyssey White Hot putter.

    All my shirts are Nike. I have a TW hat I usually wear or a Titelist cap. Nike shoes. My bag is a Maxfli bag I picked up at Costco like 7 years ago.

    Speaking of Nike, I really dig those golf shoes that are the retro Dunk knockoffs. I like the black and green even though they stink of the Boston Celtics.

Also, are you old school....do you carry a ball retriever?
    Carrying a ball retriever is equivalent to having reflectors on your bike.

    Driver - TM R9
    3 wood - TM R11
    Hybrid - TM 19 degree
    Irons - TM Burner 4-9
    Wedges - TM Pitch, Gap, Sand and a Lob
    Putter - Scotty Cameron Studio Select Newport 2

    My golf buddy growing up reps Taylor Made so I get a deal.

    I almost never wear hats, due to my freakishly large head. So that doesn't bother me.

    Saturday. At least it wasn't a 93, it was an 88. Sadly I have started shanking my chips out of the rough again.

    On the last hole I chipped out of the rough with my driver. Actually knocked it only 10 feet away, but missed the put.

    I have hit the distraught mode. I might start dating again.

    - Stand just a tad farther from the ball. (as you know) Shanks are hitting the hosel not the club face. Just make it harder the hit the hosel.

    - Putting out of the rough is often a better option, and I find myself doing that more lately.

    - Don't do anything rash like dating. Yesterday, I spent 12 hours sitting next to a woman in a car. Tread lightly.

    Driver - TM r11 (though I feel like lately i'm not hitting it as well as I hit my old r7)

    5-wood - Dunlop Parfect (the lone remnant of my very first set of clubs. I think the loft on this club is about the same as a 6-iron. Not something I hit very often, but every once in a while I need a club to go 190 and land soft as can be)

    3-hybrid - TM r13 (Ok, it's really a Ben Hogan CFT that I painted white--the original navy blue color bugged me)

    4-PW - System 3000s (Knock-off TM 300s)

    Wedges - Cleveland (52 and 56 CG14; 60 cg12)

    Putter - Odyssey White Hot XG Marxman blade

    I also carry a TM 52 degree wedge which I use as my "rock wedge" for hitting out of the junk (a necessity in Vegas, IMO).

    Ball Retriever

    I leave clubs out of the bag depending on what i feel like and the course I'm playing.

    I played my 2nd nine this year over the weekend...it's funny how fast it gets back under my skin and I want to play again so badly. This twice a year thing of late is no good. Was 2-over through the first 6, then fell apart a bit to finish with a 44. Score aside, I'm really enjoying golf again. Maybe playing less has something to do with it, as I'm loose and have zero expectations.

    The Hogan Golf Swing.

    Hogan's golf swing was almost as beautiful as Ashley Judd in Simon Birch.

    Just Got a Phone Call from My Son...

    He wanted to get a quick 9 in before work today, and shot a 31 at Fox Hollow. He was even through 5 and went birdie, birdie, birdie, eagle.

    He was all excited and went to the clubhouse to inquire of the 9 record. It was 29. The worst part was... he had to get to work, and couldn't play nine more. I've got to hand it to him.... I would've kept playing.

    In case you read this Char... I'm proud of you.

    Ping G15 9* stiff driver.
    TM Burner 3 wood
    Adams Idea Tech A4 Forged irons (3h, 4h, 5-P).
    Cleveland CG14 52, 56, 60.
    Scotty Cameron Kombi mid length putter but I just got a Scotty Cameron Studio Select Newport 2.6 putter I put in the bag Saturday.
    Taylormade Penta golf balls.

    I have had the irons for about 3 years and would really like a matching set, but not in the cards right now. My wish list includes a full Ping or Titleist set. I really like the look of the AP2's.

    Well my men's league win streak is over, the 18 handicap I was up against shot a 38 (and was angry about how he played).

    My team won though.

    Ball retriever isn't just about your own ball. It is about all the balls in the water, regardless of origin.

    That is why I don't have a ball retriever. I am just not interested in playing with someone elses balls.

    Golf Report Wednesday June 13, 2012

    43+41=84

    3 putted the first hole.
    4 putted the third hole.
    3 putted the fifth hole.
    3 putted the seventh hole.
    3 putted the ninth hole.

    3 putted the twelfth hole.
    3 putted the thirteenth hole.
    3 putted the fourteenth hole.

    Everyone of the above putts coulda/woulda/shoulda been a 2 putt. Especially heinous was the 4 putt from 18 feet on 3 when a 10 inch tap in putt did a Mr. Ed, and I had to dodge it as it careened back towards my feet. I've been singing the praises of my new belly putter - but come on - this is crazy.

    Shot of the Day: On the 5th hole, I was 161 out with a uphill hole, a bit of a face wind, wielding a 6 iron. Hit a high trap draw (on purpose even) which moved about 40 feet right to left, and spun nice when it hit the ground and left me 15 feet for a birdie putt. (3 putted)
