I'm back to golf after a winter hiatus.  I found skiing again, actually skiboarding (RVL8) and fell back in love with it.  I went out 2 times so far this season, not counting Myrtle Beach in Feb.  84 and a 91(WTF...)  while the scores do not reflect a great game, I was impressed.  Down a total of 120lbs since last season, I am getting my swing back.  I am playing again 6/4,6/5 in a little tournament.  I am going back to conventional putting from LHL(switched from WINN1.18 to Ping Cadence midsize grip) and I took out the 26* hybrid and SLDR mini from the bag.  I went back to my standard set-up.  Hoping to get a decent golf season in this year and would love to get some touch back and break 80.

Driver - Cobra King F7 dual weight @ 12.5D w Project X PXv Red shaft S/X
Fairway wood -  Cobra F6 4-5 Wood @ 18.5D w Grafalloy ProLaunch Blue AR shaft
Hybrid - Cobra F6 4-5 Hybrid @ 23.5D w White Matrix Ozik Program S shaft
Irons/Wedges - Cobra Amp Cell Silver 5 - LW w TT multi-step custom fit shafts
Putter - Bastain Milled Fusion Golf Prototype 5 of 5 w UST FF shaft
Ball - Top Flite Gamer - Truvis Pattern
Grips - Karma Tour Velvet Standard Ribbed
Putter Grip: Ping PP58 Midsize

I had gastric sleeve surgery in August to assist with weight loss.  I was/am healthy, just heavy.  usually healthy fat people fall over from a heart attack.  Didn't want that to happen

Congrats on your weight loss !!!

I quit smoking over 14 months ago and have gained 25 pounds since then. Been fluctuating up and down a few pounds from the "new normal" but that has to stop, and soon.
