Okay, here is a place for the Golfers to talk about tournaments, clubs, swing help or thoughts.

Today is the Players Championship, which I think ought to be the 5th Major. Largest pot in the PGA. The daunting 17th, which seems to bring excitement every year. At least we will get to see Sergio blow up yet again.

I am ready to see some water balls!

My current bag:

Rapture 9.5* - Aldila VS 65-S
Taylor Made R-7 15* - Mitsubish Blue Board stiff
Adams Pro Gold 20* hybrid with Matrix Ozik stiff
Callaway X-22 Tour 4-PW - Project-X 5.5
Cleveland 588 RTG 52*
Titleist Vokey 56*
Titleist Vokey 60*
Scotty Cameron Red X putter

I haven't changed anything in the past two seasons but looking at getting a new driver at some point. I really like the new Titleist 913D3 with Aldila RIP alpha 60 but not really loving the idea paying the price for the latest model. Also considering the 910D3 with the same shaft mostly because its about $200 less.

Budget Golf occasionally runs bizarre sales that you can apply to Titleist gear (even though it's against policy). A number of guys got 20% off of the 913 shortly after it came out. That would be a savings of 80 bucks.

Other Questions:

1. What bounce do you have on your wedges? The soil in Mid-Missouri is notoriously hard (all clay, hence the former brick production here), so my sand and lob wedges have 4* of bounce

2. What ball do you play?

I prefer the B330 (10+ yards longer than a Pro V1 for me), but Srixon makes a damned good ball as well.

A note of warning to the n00bish golfers on here: Do not ever buy refurbished balls. Recycled balls that have been lost are fine, but refurbs are almost always repainted mush melons.

Meant to ask you this morning - are you happy with your 8620's? My Vokey's only have a season left on them, and I'm thinking of replacing them with the 8620's or the 1018 forged.

Found this good and thorough review last night. The guy writing it up liked the XCG - 5 driver, more than the other guys that helped test it. In the end he thought it was a more accurate, than long driver. That would be good for me, but I'd like to hit one first, and can't seem to locate one anywhere.

The 8620 is the most ridiculously ****ing long wedge I have ever hit in my life.

I can step on the 60* and get it out to 90 yards. Stock 56 goes about 105. I hit my Vokey 60.04 about 70 yards.

The heads are very small, and will take some getting used to, but the feel is fine.

One thing I will say. It's almost hard for me to hit knockdowns because they are so long and crisp off the face. I was hitting 3/4 56s 95 yards yesterday when I was trying to hit it at the 70 yard target.

Some of that is rust, but still...uber long.

1) I prefer a lot of bounce on wedges. 14* on my 56 and 12 on my 60*. I tend to have a dig swing with wedges so I prefer the bounce on tight lies.

2) I tend to play what I find unless I'm striking the ball well. Then any tour spin ball will do. I do like the Bridgstone tour ball as well but see no major differences in most of the tour balls.

I don't buy new balls either. Haven't paid for a sleeve of balls since 2005.

The Titlest Vokeys with the spin milled faces are easily the best wedges I have played. Very well balanced.

Probably been since the late 90's that I have bought balls that were not a gift for someone else. Some Titest Professionals and loved them back in the day.

I would have expected that from the 1018's, being forged and all. Hit a forged club on the button, and you see some insane distance.

Wouldn't have expected that from the 8620's, since they are cast.

I've head they have a similar shape to the Vokeys, so the smaller head may not be much of an issue for me. Problem is, no one carries them, so I'm going to have to take a chance on them.

My favorite weekend in golf by far. Really looking forward to seeing the tourney this year. If somehow, someway, Freddy Couples can win this thing, I will cry like a little girl.

Mine is the Ryder Cup (though that may not count since it doesn't happen every year) but I do enjoy watching The Masters.
