I'm not sure I could quite bring myself to wear that particular "Colorway" but I sure do like it. With the right pair of slacks and shirt that would be Tour-level fashion, there.
Everything has its drawbacks, as the man said when his mother-in-law died, and they came down upon him for the funeral expenses.

Wonder if someone can start a thread "Post Your First Club Gotten Rid Of For 2018". I have quite a few potential candidates...

Well after a difficult time in the winter league without being able to establish why, my pro gave me the full works and made a few suggestions. First purchase of 2018 may be Mizuno SC 18s or 900 Tour. Hit the SCs really well but weirdly prefer the look of 900T. Any thoughts or experiences with either?

Just bought a custom Toulon San Diego.  Did it through the design garage, which was a lot of fun.  When it came, the sole plate was loose so there was a clicking sound when I putted or tapped the putter on the ground.  I called Callaway and the customer service rep (named Tad Ryan) immediately ordered me a new one (same custom specs etc.) and sent me a UPS return label to return the one I have.  They were awesome.  Great customer service is just the best!!

My first purchase of the year and I should be getting them in time for a Saturday round of golf.   I picked up a 2016 Taylor Made M1 driver (9.5) and a 2016 M2 3 wood (15).  Both in a stiff shaft.  Finally moving away from my Nike woods.

Callaway MD forged 60 wedge.
I’ve been trying all sorts of wedges, mostly 56 and 58, but also the 55* S wedge that came with my irons (bought used 3-p,a,s wedges).
I’ve decided to keep the set S wedge as a second gap wedge, and added the 60 for bunkers and lobs.
