dude, just take your current irons to the repair shop and have them all bent 3 or 4 degrees strong, now you got your P790.

My daughter is going to go with her coach to get fitted this Sunday for her first set of non junior clubs.  After that we'll see what that is going to cost us.  No idea what they are going to recommend yet but she is excited.

A lot.  I think I read that getting the p790 stock would be like adding 20 strips of lead tape on a tour series iron.  :tomato:

How old is your daughter?  Going to be doing the same for my soon to be 13 year old as he has grown 5 inches this year (now at 5.5 with size 10.5 feet) and has grown out of his set of Flynn clubs I purchased in January.

She is 12, we bought her set of Flynn clubs about a year and a half ago.  She has grown a few inches and she has gotten stronger as well the past several months.  They went to get fitted Saturday, I don't even know much about the results yet, I was out of town all weekend.  Funny thing is, my wife took her to go play 9 on Sunday and she hit her first hole in one, 122 yards with an 8 iron.  I told her if you want new clubs you might want to lay off on the hole in ones.

Congrats to your daughter on her hole in one - and that is pretty long 8 iron!  Will be curious to hear what direction you end up going.

We went to our club this weekend and did a quick fitting with our pro / swing coach.  He had been against moving my son to adult clubs earlier in the year but after seeing him this weekend he agreed now is the time (although he warned that we may be buying another in 9-12 months).  My son really liked the Ping i200s, so I am looking for a set of with regular graphite shafts - so goes the pain...

Golf simulator setup in the garage. Probably going with the R Motion, a 10’x10 hitting bay, and a 50” tv on the wall. Much cheaper to buy a big tv than go with a projector and screen. Figure this will just keep him swinging through the winter and keep practice fun. Not looking for accurate result besides club path just to keep him swinging. The TGC software looks fun. Plus we can add a skytrak to the Rmotion later and get club and ball data much cheaper than a flightscope or GCquad.

I have my eyes on a 400 sqt ft in door putting green. No kidding....

I have been eyeing an indoor putting green as well.  We have a sitting room in the house, lol stupid waste of space, and I want to rip out the carpet and put in a putting surface with holes.  Probably a 120-150 square foot space.
