Dad golf is all about keeping it in play when you haven't swung a club for 2 weeks

Post of the year, lol!  But seriously.. so true.  Today I played with 3 pros and my buddy who's a +1.  I had 7 birdies through 12 then the whiskey kicked in and I cooled way down.. shot -2 (70) as a 2 and was pretty happy with that.

The pros were pissed because they had to give me so many shots and I shot a good round.. but honestly.. I literally never practice, my warm up is jumping off a conference call on the tee box and pouring out some Nikka and just hoping for the best.  Today it was really good, but most days are just like you said.  It's really funny the difference in reaction when a 2 shoots 70 vs. when I shoot 79 or 80  :)  

I just told them, you guys play for a living.. I play once a week if I'm lucky.. I just played well today, not sure what else to say.  My game is definitely coming back.. my index is going to drop back down towards scratch.  The Mizunos are $$$$ little ballooning in the CTL's, but overall still really like them.  The 917 is still ole faithful, but today it was the Scotty.. very hot.


Working Dad golf is still once a week?  Sign me up!  That's more like single with no kids golf around here.  One round every 3 or 4 weeks is my luck.

You gotta join a club where you can play a quick 9 in an hour.  In my house that's called "honey i'm working a little later today i'll be home an hour late" :telephone: :golfer:

I miss those days dearly. I’ve got a 4 yo and one on the way and am lucky to get a handful of rounds/year these days. 60-80 hr at the office each week and weekends to catch up at home. If only they’d drawn my lotto numbers, I’d have a nanny and a tee time every day, lol.

Glad to see you back playing, Tai

Yes, I went with the TS3 8.5 with Fuji Speeder TR7 - it is a MONSTER!  Longest Titleist driver I have owned, and still has the same playability characteristics I love about the Titleist drivers.

Yes, they are just really good.  Sound/feel are so much better than my 718's and a performance is also better.

As said above.. really happy with the 919T's, I don't see them going anywhere.  The S18's are also really nice on the course, have hit some amazing shots with them.  I only have them in the PW and GW, so only full shots really with them, I can't comment on the SW or LW or how those grinds work, and will be sticking to what I know in the Vokey V-Grind.  

Highly recommend trying the Mizzy's if you're considering them.

I am considering them going into next season and I'd do a similar set up to what you've got with the S18 PW and GW.  The S18's look really good in those options but I'm not a big fan of them in the higher loft options.  Thanks for the update and I hope you (and everyone else on here) has a great Thanksgiving.

Yes. They play like as a long iron replacement instead of trying to max out ball speed. They are very consistent in their flight.

Tai,

Thoughts on the Fuji Tour Spec Speeder TR 757?

I have one, brand new, sitting in a 4 Wood. It looks OUTSTANDING! Won't get a chance to hit it until we thaw out up here. I had NO expectation of liking, gaming; as a matter of fact I already had a shaft lined up for the head, but the TR line just looks so good in person I have to consider it. Their heaviest option is still a touch on the lighter side (77g I believe) so I'm a bit apprehensive to jump in with both feet. Considering it for the Driver. We'll see.

Love to hear your thoughts.

Yeah, I think I will eventually.. I don't need much more over what I already have in the 917.. but if it's that much better I'll put it in.
