If money was no object, what equipment would you have in your golf bag? Mine would be something like this:-

Driver - Adams Speedline FAST 10 Driver 10.5*
3-wood - Callaway Big Bertha Diablo 15*
Hybrids - TaylorMade 2009 Rescue TP #3 & #4
Irons - PING S57 Irons 5-PW
Wedges - Titleist 2008 Vokey Spin Milled Oil Can Wedges 52*, 56*, 60*
Putter - Guerin Rife Island Series Milled Putter
Bag - PING Hoofer C1 Stand Bag
Balls - Bridgestone Golf e6+ Golf Balls
Shafts - whatever DGman says I should use

Is there a consistent theme in my bag above? Dunno, I just like the looks of all these items...

Pretty much have what I want in my bag right now.

Maybe some tour issue Vokeys grinded by Bob himself. Will be neat picking some info from him as I watch him work his magic too. Titleist

You guys meant BSG?

By the way, there's an Indonesian in San Francisco by the name of Joe Kwok. He does a much better job than BSG.

No Yarra
we really meant BFG = Big Fish Golf
do a search on it
the chief of BFG is Eric aka DGMan on this forum
when you visit SG, worthwhile to drop by his place (affectionately called the 'den' here)
get your clubs tuned by him

Got 2 PROTOs and a tour issue Y-cutter. I am playing the Y-cutter now, keeping the PROTOs until I wear off the Y-cutter completely. The spin is simply out of this world!

The 'B' heads virtually have just a tiny bit of offset to none. The 'C' heads, on the other hand, has 2mm of offset...

ghoonk and pocketace,

Yeah, Joe is Indonesian. Got stuffs from him, talked to him a few times over the phone. Nice guy...

Big Fish as in one of Graman's shaft designer? Gotta pay him a visit next time I go to Singapore. Where exactly is his place?

thanks for the reminder, need to go swop out the Miura wedges for the Y-cutters. The Miuras have not enough bounce for effective wedge play on the Earth course of Jumeirah Golf Estates.

Tour wedges (last year's groove) are now declining in value... They can't play that kinda groove anymore this year. Those rednecks always insist to play conforming equipment like the pros even when they don't have to. So, take advantage of it and start hunting for one. They simply worth it. Just make sure you get one one with the groove condition still 80%, at least.

Also, if you have PING Eye 2 (old stuffs, try asking your grandpa... Very Happy ) get on the band wagon and put it in eBay. They fetch good money a while back...

That's why I have 2 sets of tour-issued Y-cutters Smile

Actually, hard for most people to be able to tell if there is 80% left, esp over eBay pics..

BFG is is Bukit Merah, Block 1003. Let me know when you are going to Singapore, will email you a map and address if you can't find it on their web site : http://www.bigfishes.com/

Yeah, you're right... It is hard to tell unless you see it a good close up picture or, even better, see it in person...

I'll probably go to Singapore during the Easter holiday or mid-year... I'll let you know. Any chance you'll be in Singapore any time soon?

Sorry mate, you missed me by a mth.

I'm moving back over to San Diego California next week.

Let me know if you are ever in SoCal. I think Muar Chee is gonna pay me a visit. Wink

damn damn damn

on the upside, i see it as an opportunity to buy a staff bag and more kit. Any 2nd hand golf shops to recommend? Very Happy

Maybe a custom fitter to fit me up? I need a driver that would get me distance and keep me on the fairway. The Earth course on the Jumeirah Golf Estates is killing me.

Orlando has a few Edwin Watts and a Golf Galaxy but only 1 shop is worth checking out:

Edwin Watts Golf
7501 Turkey Lake Road
Orlando, Florida 32819

http://www.edwinwattsgolf.com/RetailView?storeId=10001&catalogId=10001&storeNbr=17

They have the whole range of TM staff players tour bags with their autographs displayed.

They have an in-house fitter too.

Don't bother about the rest. They are pretty miserably stocked. This one has just about everything you need.

...well if you are into 2nd hand gems like me, there's also a Golfsmith with alot of 2nd hand equipment but it really depends on your luck when you are there:

Golfsmith
4656 Millenia Plaza Way
Orlando, FL 32839

If you are planning to play a couple of rounds, here are a couple of choices:

Orange County National: Both Panther Lake and Crooked Cat course are good. Huge muther $%^& range. They are playing Q school back here end of the year again. Pretty wide open courses compared to back home but pretty long so if your game is on, it can be a good day.

Grand Cypress: North, South, East courses are good but check out the New Course. Its 18 holes replicating St Andrews. All courses designed by Jack Nicklaus

If you can afford an hr+ drive, go to the World Golf Village in St Augustine. Play the King and Bear Golf course. The World Golf Hall of Fame is there too but unless you get in free or discounted (like me) not really worth a visit.

TPC Sawgrass is quite near there too but at USD$275 a pop, I felt it wasn't up to my expectations in terms of condition.

I'm sure you can always find some time. Laughing

Check out the Scotty Cams on display mate. They have the TW replica but its NFS.

They have Machine Putters as well too but they are pretty ugly IMHO.

Some TP Mills are available to be tried at the putting display but the price and feel is nothing to shout about.

They also have TM Super Tri, Super Fast and mebbe by the time you are there, Super Deep in stock. Can always ask to try it out as they have 3 simulators to test it out.
