Hi Tai, glad to hear that you're enjoying the game again and sounds like you're playing some good stuff. Loving the new additions to the bag and the collection over the last few month and even better to see another pool photo shoot ;)
I have a quick questions regarding your wedge setup, I understand you have 50, 55 (54 bent to 55?) and 60? Was just wondering what made you go with 54 bent rather than 56? I'm looking to moving towards that's exact setup that's all so was curious as to whether or not anything particular swayed you toward it?
Also, I'm looking for my 60 to be the most versatile grind possible for short chips/pitches around the green, any recommendations on that?
Cheers
Chris

Thanks!  Went with the 54 bent to 55 to get a little extra bounce for full shots from the fairway and better out of soft sand.  The 56 bent strong would dig more and better for a sweeper.  60 degree wedge is so personal, the V grind is great for me but the SM6 L grind was close, and the M grind would also be playable based on my fitting at TPI.  It really just depends on your game and what you like/don't like and the conditions you play in.  60 is always tough to make a broad recommendation on.

BTW. what bag is that in your sig? Any more pics?

Thanks for the wedge feedback, I'm a fairly steep player so have mostly played with high bounce options but this can give me a hard time around the greens, especially in the summer when the turf really firms up, will look into the V and L.
The bag's a Stadry 4UP in grey/sky blue, most of the other ones I've seen are a darker shade of grey and have a white trim but my pro managed to grab me the lighter one with black trim, I'll take a few snaps of it tomorrow. I really like the 4UP but at times wish it had one more divider in there!

First round of 2018 was at Torrey Pines South with 3 other WRX'ers.. we had a great time.  The course is immaculate and this is probably one of the very few times I would say the course is actually worth the $245 green fees.  The few weeks in January leading up to the Farmers and the few weeks after is probably the only time the course is REALLY hard.  I mean, probably too hard for 95% of the golfing population.  It really puts into perspective how insanely good tour players really are.  I have played Torrey in the summer or the months prior to when they start prepping it for the Farmers and it's night and day.  When the rough is down and greens are slower the course is much more accommodating for the average golfer.. rounds around even par can feel ho-hum, in these conditions it's really crazy to see how really difficult it becomes - definitely a great test of golf.

I was hitting my driver really well, I think I only missed 3 fairways, but the ones that missed, even if off by a foot, you could barely find your ball.  If you did, you had almost no chance of hitting a shot that would hold the greens which are also firming up and speeding up.  The rough was really long, but it will get even longer by the time the Farmers rolls around.  The greens when they get fast and add to that the ocean break, are really confusing and tough to make putts one.  Such was the case with me, hit the ball great, got nothing out of my round.  Bogeys were from either missing the fairway and having to chop it out of the rough on the second shot, or missing a green and having no chance at getting it up and down from basically being at the bottom of 6-8" rough  :)

Anyways, some pics!  The collective club ho'ing between this group was unmatched in true WRX fashion  :)

If you can get out to Torrey - definitely play the South right now, it's incredible!

It was good.  The graphite shafts have been really helpful.  I think I'm fully healed at this point, maybe just some mobility or range of motion limitations but nothing I notice and it doesn't hurt anymore.  Thanks for checking in!

Great to hear your wrist is doing well !

I had a wrist injury almost 10 year ago now while playing hockey. Super low speed accidental impact but hit just the right ( wrong ) way to break bone. It took years to get back to 100%, but its awesome to hear you've had a great recovery.

Any plans to go back to steel?

Well, you just need to buy a "Winter getaway house" down here to get that resident card. :-)

It looks like you got a really nice sunny day to play. I played the South course this morning at 7 am and it was overcast and damp all day. I agree with you on the conditions right now, tough! When I watch those Pros hit some of the same shots I've had to attempt, I just shake my head in amazement! Can't wait for the Farmers to start! :-)

No plans on going back to steel.  If I do, I'm not sure I'll go back to the 130g variety.  The shock absorption is a real thing and there are other benefits I've beens seeing in performance that have outweighed any negatives.  I haven't got any of the bad side effects usually associated with graphite shafts - the ball that goes really far and high, or being unplayable in the wind.  I also haven't been fit for irons since TPI, so I can only comment on what they have been doing on the course.

Nice pics!  Good to see you back at it and enjoying the game.  I'm going graphite too...just needs to happen for good this time if I want to keep playing this game into my elder years.

I played Torrey South last year about 2.5 weeks before the tournament.  The rough was so hideous that I literally lost a ball in plain sight like it was an Easter egg hunt.  When you get in that stuff, it's either an air-mail or a 20 yard hack out.  A par feels like a birdie after you get in Torrey tourney-ready rough!

Oh, and the paragliders were out over the ocean cliff right at the level of the fairway too.  Amazing atmosphere and experience!  I'll be back!!!  :)

Darn you GolfWRX TM trip.. M3/M4 sound interesting.  There's a TMPL near me, going to try them against my 917D3.  Really interested to compare the numbers, they actually use the TP5/x and it's outdoor so I should get a pretty good idea on what's what.  The 917 love fest is very strong, however  :tongue:

The way you hit the 917 at Torrey, don’t mess until it goes cold.  You were money.  That being said I’m def picking up a M3/M4 haha.  The WRX thread is not helping.

You do have a good point.. you and KPH will both have tried both versions of this before I can get detached from the 917 and I'll be able to buy one of your guys' setups.. great thinking!  :cheesy: :tongue:

Seriously, the fact that the tech is around more forgiveness and playability rather than chasing ball speed is really what's got me interested.

Man that course looks beautiful! We have a office out in San Diego I need to pay a visit very soon, getting tired of this Oklahoma and Texas weather. LOL

Tai, my prediction says once a M3/M4 is demoed you will have the 917 sitting in a extra bag collecting dust!  What else can I do to get your true WRX hoe’ing going?

I mean I did well yesterday.  J13 and myself were out playing and I was doing my best to get him in a different putter and then he hit a couple bombs with the Pro Orange!   Have to promote new products to him since he always has me hoe’ing !

Haha, yeah he texted me that he loved your V3 Orange.  JJ loves that shaft too - but I was never a big fan of the Tensei's, they just loaded weird for me.  M3/4 is definitely getting demo's we have our team play starting so I might keep the 917 till that ends in a few months if the 917 keeps behaving.  Been really happy with the Atmos - but always open to try new shafts, just nothing that really sticks out as a must try (yet)  :)

917 F3 out, F2 in.. much easier to hit, more confidence inspiring from address.  Going to flip the pod to fade and it should be dialed.  Damn you Titleist!

Hit a few today and played 6 holes with a buddy just messing around.. shocked how good home course is right now.  Usually it's dormant and weird, but this weather has been crazy - and nice.. not complaining :)

F2 has a much better look to me especially for a tee club.  I find as i get older i'm moving away from wanting the tiny headed 3 woods in favor of something that offers a little more forgiveness.  Nothing worse then hitting the driver poorly and relying on a 3 wood that isn't much bigger then the golf ball itself.

Cant wait to see your thoughts on the M3/M4.... Cause lets face it your inner hoe doesn't care how good your playing the Titleist stuff you'll have them soon trying them out LOL. But really look forward to your thoughts. I am currently fitted for the Ping G400 and loving it but the Twistface has me wanting to definitely try them.

Pretty much.. good way to put it, lol!  Love the shape of the F3, but you're right.  The new Epic Rogue SZ actually reminds me of the F3, or I should say is more towards that shape than it was in the previous head (which had a terrible left miss for me).

First competitive round of 2018 - very interesting, overall good score but some work needed.

SCGA Team Play is basically overly competitive net golf or I like to compare it to extremely competitive adult league soft ball  :)  Anyone that participates and probably relate even if they won't admit it.  Nonetheless, the competition level is extremely high - and since it's a club team format, it's even more intense.  To add to that, I was playing a match against a buddy from my former club who's a really competitive AM and plays a LOT (200+ rounds/year vs. my 50 last year) and all the other guys breaking my balls for being a traitor and joining a rival club.. good times  :)  But it was actually really fun, I do like that type of competition and banter with guys I've known for a while and have played with or against in various tournaments.

I ended up shooting 71 in a match that was halved, lots of grinding, pretty exhausting actually.  The 917's were money, my driver was very solid and straight aside from one errant drive.  I put myself in great position on really tough driving par 5's and just made a mess of the second shots and couldn't birdie either one.  I can definitely say it was nerves and a little discomfort with switching winds, both misses were short right, which is a nervy bail out swing for me.  Putter was decent, made some clutch putts but nothing crazy, and not my usual amount of birdies.  Chipping was rusty as lies were extremely tight vs. my home course which has some cushion right now.  Iron play was 6/10 but overall could have gone in the 60's aside from a few really stupid plays/tentative swings.

It was fun getting out there and grinding a bit.. then having to rush off the course to pick up my son from daycare put every good/bad shot into perspective and literally forgetting about the battles on the course and all the banter the minute I see my son (15 months) walking to greet me at the door.
