Playing my first round of this year at Trull Brook (1st annual cousin invitational LMAO) on Saturday. I don't play very often, in fact my clubs are Toski 15-5 set I got when Golf Day was going out of business. I refuse to get a new set because these clubs are great, hardly used and still have a "Made in the USA" sticker on all of the clubs and drivers.

Right now however, I am looking for a new putter. The putters I have are sketchy at best. Any suggestions for under $150?

Ping Anser 4. Never any need to buy a new golf club. Rock Bottom Golf. BTW, Tommy Toski was my first teacher, and I spend more than a bit of time wither his brother Bobby (not to mention Jack, who was a prodigious drinker and story teller).

Btw good luck at Trull Brook. Last time I played a weekend round there it was 6.5 hours and I left on the 17th.

Jeeze. The good news is the 5 parties ahead of mine are all family, with one after mine. We're playing by some pretty good speed rules to not hold up the game and to get us to the 19th hole quicker.....

Cleveland Huntington Beach collection. $99 plays and feels like a $300 putter

This is what I got, the #6. I fondled and putted with a couple and really liked the #6.

Picked up a Calloway sand wedge and a new pair of sneakers too. Happy FD to me lol

Had my best round ever sat morning. 45 on the front, with one chip in. Chipped another in on the back for an eagle and a back nine of 38. I will probably shoot 120 next time out!

Just wrapped up six rounds in five days down in Myrtle. Gonna need a couple weeks off from golf. Had three birdies in one round and still shot 93. True Blue is a monster, especially if you hit every tee shot OB/into water. Played final round with just irons and shot an 85, with a 39 on the front. Go figure...

I bought this early 80's model 3 years ago for $30 on ebay. Put a fat grip on it. Abbsolutely love it.
There is a 2-Ball blade and a 2-Bar sitting in the ceiling in the basement. Paid a fair price when they were new but can't put the Rossa down.

Anyone have experience with the latest M3 or M4 driver from TaylorMade? Looking to get a new driver this year and am heavily leaning towards the M3, but wondering if anyone has one or has heard how well they are performing. Thanks

My club opened last week, but has been mostly closed since. Every year we play Masters Sunday in the morning and then watch the final round. Guess not this year.

I had a tee time this AM. Then I didn't. I want sunny warm weather, this shit sucks.

We are playing in the Irish Village tournament May 7th on the Cape and I expect it to be cold and rainy in the 30's. Plus, it's at New Seabury CC on the water so I may wear thermals.

42 putts is rough, but an 87 is still pretty good under those circumstances!

Gonna try to play 36 on Friday. 7:28 at Pinehills, then I’m hoping to get out on Crosswinds in the afternoon. Another tee time Saturday morning at Laconia CC.

Played Scottish Highlands a couple of weeks ago. Nice course, would love to play it again when it’s not 95 degrees out!
