I was looking for a set of matching headcovers to match my bag that wouldn't break the bank. I stumbled across Pearson Golf on Instagram and reached out to them. They take custom orders for headcovers, and the pictures they had posted looked great. I ended up going with a grey wool body with navy leather cap, and they turned out awesome. The set was $40+shipping and it was well worth it.

Those look really good, reminiscent of Seamus but a fraction of the price. Do they have elastic inside?

That's what I was thinking. They look really similar to Seamus, but they are considerably cheaper. They seem to have a lot of unique material/color options as well. They do have elastic inside and have a soft interior. The three wood cover fits a little looser than the driver, but not loose enough to slide off from just moving around. They're easy to get on and off. I had a similar style headcover on a Cleveland Classic Custom XL driver a while back, and the elastic was so tight that it would only go in at just the right angle. These fit much better than that one.

We skipped straight to the heat of summer here in Texas. Had to break out the red/white/blue setup for this weekend, but I should have brought the umbrella as well.

I’ve gotta try those Pearson covers.   I need some shorter length ones now that I have an old man’s Bennington bag.

How did you get the Fujikura pro 95 shaft in the Nike Vapor Fly Pro Irons? I am looking to do the same. That shaft is a parallel tip and the Nike hosel is tapered. Thanks!

I had mine built by Will Peoples at The Peoples Clubs. I’m assuming he altered the shaft tip to make it fit. I’m considering sending mine back in to upgrade from the 95 to the 115g version. I’m just trying to find a good time to do it when I can do without them for a couple of weeks.

I've been looking for a solid milled Scotty Cameron putter with a heavier head and a longer neck for a while. I ended up picking up a Pro Platinum Mid Sur today during the ebay 15% off sale. I'll cut the shaft down to 35" and put a heavier Flatso 1.0 on to counter the 375g head weight. I'll clean up the head and give it a polish/maybe some new paint for now - with possibly a full refinish coming later. It seems to be in pretty good shape - not a lot of bag chatter.

On a completely non-golf-related note. A buddy I grew up with's Dad has been a coach bouncing around in the minor leagues (baseball) for years. As of last year, he got promoted to the Rockies major league staff. I happened across his MLB authenticated jersey from his first home game as a MLB coach and I threw it in the cart as well - will be cool to have.

I was able to spend some time hitting my driver on a Trackman at a tournament I played in this weekend. They were using the Trackman for the long-drive contest and they are sending everyone their swing video/numbers from their tee shots. (Pretty novel idea - and crowns a long-drive winner without the shenanigans typically associated with it).  I circled back around after we finished and hit some more balls on it. I was consistently 116 - 116.5 mph club head speed, but my launch angle was a little high, so I wasn't getting the total distance I should have been.

So I picked up a Tour Issue M1 440 8.5* head to try out to see if the decreased loft/spin will help. I'm on the hunt for a 9* M3 as well. Will be testing it against my '17 M1 460 9.5* with the ATMOS Blue 8x tipped 1" and the Fujikura Pro 83x tipped 0.5".

Will do man. I will probably hold on to these even when I inevitably switch to a new set of irons, but I'll let you know.

Newest addition: TaylorMade Tour Issue 2017 M1 440 8.5*

Head Weight: 193.1g. I prefer 200-204, so it looks like I am going to pick up another weight and play a 3 weight setup. I am thinking 2 on the front track spread out and the rear weight all the way back.

Added a 9g weight and got the head up to 202+. I spread the weights out as much as possible: 12g on draw, 9g on fade, 14g on rear track. It feels good now. Going to have to get out to the range to see how it plays.

This popped up from my saved eBay searches tonight and I scooped it up. I would love to know the story behind this one. I will cover up the initial stamping with some lead tape and give it a CLR bath to let the rusting process start fresh. I guess I found a loophole to pick up an Artisan wedge without the waiting list.

I got the Mid Sur putter in and cleaned the head up. I polished up the face and sole to give it some shine. Last night I cut it down to 35", put a Flatso 1.0 on it, and updated all of the paint fill. I went with navy everywhere except for one spot of off-white on the "Mid Sur" sole engraving. Between the soft carbon head and the heavier head weight, this thing may work out just fine. It cleaned up pretty well.

The Tour Issue 8.5* M1 440 is in the bag for good after this weekend. I played my home course, and had a couple of shots that were ~15 yards closer than I am used to playing from. One of them was a 520 yard par 5 with a 45* dog leg right. I typically play a cut up the left side (fwy slopes to the R so you get some extra roll that way) to have an angle on the 2nd shot. Usually, even if I hit it too straight it will end up just rolling a foot or so off of the fairway at the end of the dog leg. I pulled it a touch, but it went well past where I typically hit it and blasted through the dogleg, through the rough, and into the next fairway. I had some tall trees about 100yds away between me and the green, no good angle anymore, and OB just past a narrow green. Played my 2nd with a 4i over the trees and landed softly just off the green. Then chipped in for eagle! I'd credit that more to the 2nd shot than the first, but the drive was certainly longer than I expected to hit.
