  • Kingcat990: “Took the father in law golfing, and we posted some horrendous scores. Had a great time piling garbage on the scorecard.”
  • Gautama: “New golf shirt and shorts, and got a surprise treat in a tee time for the whole clan on a little executive 9 hole, par 33 course. First time we’ve done it…my wife, my two sons aged 22 and 18, and my two daughters aged 9 and 6. The whole course was crawling with groups like ours… Not the fastest round any of us have ever played, but very fun.”
  • granata10: “New ping hoofer golf bag. It was needed and wanted.”

    My middle son honored me on Fathers’ Day with a set of 1973 Ben Hogan Apex blades — 2-iron through the Equalizer wedge and the Special Sand Iron. He found them on Ebay. The set is practically mint, showing little wear, especially in the longer clubs. Original grips, too (soon to be replaced). What a great gift to complement the Walter Hagen blades that have been in my bag since 1982 (older than any of my three sons). I can’t wait to take them out on the course.

GolfWRX Spotted: Mizuno ST-G220 driver at the 3M Open

Published

on

Mizuno’s ST-G220 driver hit the USGA conforming list a couple of months back, and we’ve caught sight of the new addition at this week’s 3M Open.

Along with a deep-looking face, the driver features a moveable weight and an adjustable hosel, while the “high” weight in the rear of the club is interchangeable with other weights/settings.

Here are a few posts from our members, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • wcbjr: “That face is deeeeep!”
  • littletimbo182: “Mizuno is really looking battle with the big dogs! Such a strong lineup driver all the way down to putter.”
  • getitdaily: “Well now, that is quite interesting. 1 weight center back. One weight back toe side. Hmmm.”
  • jokerusn: “That is the perfect shape. Not a thing wrong with that look imo. Good job Mizuno. I know I just got the SiM2 Max, but this is making me rethink my decision.”

Best Bridgestone irons? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing all things Bridgestone irons. WRXer ‘Texas_Golfer’ is on the hunt for an older Bridgestone set as a backup to his primary set and has reached out for suggestions, with fellow members sharing their picks.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • Christen_The_Slop: “I have a set of TS-201. Very underrated CB.”
  • JDubya89: “J40 CB, and it’s not even close, in my opinion.”
  • Mudguard: “I think had J33 Combos, J38s, then J40s. I haven’t used them in at least eight years. But they were the only set I’ve kept.”
  • IL2AZ: “I have both the Tour B X CB and the J15 CB. I am in the minority in that I prefer the Tour B X CB. Little more compact than the J15 CB and feel more solid/dense out of the middle. The J15 CB feels almost too soft at times IMHO.”
