I just bought a fleece pullover from the Mizuno site. I'm in North Carolina at my daughter's house and it's too chilly for me. The new fleece will get shipped to Miami, but when I come back in a month, it'll be a big help.

Just added the ST190G today, atmos tour 6X shaft, plus last week a pair of new white/black wave cadence gtx shoes, they are without doubt the most comfortable pair of golf shoes I have every tried, stability & grip are excellent.
Now to lay my hands on the new RB tour x balls and see if they could replace my pro v1’s

A bit more time travelling. They came with Modus 120 stiff shafts, -0.25". I might need to make them a tad longer at some point but they'll be my backups so there's no rush. I really did enjoy playing my first round with them today. I did have a set of 54s until I moved to the 4s (and I have regretted selling those) but I've always wanted to try the 53s and the Modus shafts. Now I got them in great condition.

Also got a new set of shirts and jackets from our golf union today. Yay!

Not a day without new Mizuno. I got the ST180 today. I got an e-mail telling me it had arrived at the post office a couple of minutes before I was heading out for a range session.

The club does look nice but the feel was definitely worse than with my MP-650. Ball flight was quite similar but the ST180 did seem to have less spin on it resulting in more roll. Even so I wasn't overly impressed but I will give it a couple of chances to get more comfortable with it on the course. When I demoed the latest Cobra and the rep settled on the correct shaft, it didn't really feel good either but the numbers were better so hopefully the ST180 provides similar results. The Orange 50 might be a bit light for me though. The Cobra rep settled to the Atmos Blue 65 for me.

We'll see.

Well, I ordered a TM Hi-Toe on Monday and just found a very good deal on eBay for the GT180 3 wood. It will be a great deal if the customs let it slip past them as I ordered it from the U.S.

Hopefully it will work for me or I'll have two fairway woods I can't hit. :)

Picked up a nice set of Mizuno MP53 forged irons /5-PW / Stiff Flex NS Pro shafts,
Used but well cared for absolutely no bag clatter or marks on them apart for the 6 iron that has a small scuff mark on the front leading edge of the sole as can be seen in the photos even the faces show minimum signs of wear, shafts and grips are all in great condition so all in all a really nice set of irons..!
I bought them of e-Bay where they were on sale for £149.95 from a well known used golf club supplier, less a discount code for £29.99 that e-bay sent me and the remainder of the price was paid for by money that I won from bets placed on the recent US open golf championship so I got them for free..

Although they are fitted with the wrong shafts for me I’m going to play them as they are over a few games to see how I get on with them, I’ve got the Shotscope V2 golf watch so I’ll Take the tags of my 900HM irons and put them on the MP53s for the moment and monitor the game stats, if I should need to change the shafts I have a nice set of KBS Tour C taper lite 105 regular shafts that I could put on them,

I’ve not bought this set of irons as a replacement for my JPX 900HM, But rather as an alternative set to them and for days when I just want the pleasure of playing a nice soft Mizuno forged iron..!

I got a new bed and the GT180 3 wood today! The GT looks so good it can't be a bad club. I also got some new grips, shaft extenders etc. yesterday and lengthened my 50º and 55º wedges by about half an inch (the specs of hand-crafted equipment is never spot on, they're all individuals!) to give me one-length wedges once I get the Hi-Toe, which I ordered +0.5".

I can't wait to demo the GT tomorrow.

The GT180 fairway wood is brilliant! It's easy to hit and the feel is so much better than in the 917 fairway. If you want to give it a go, you can get one here for next to nothing. :)

Those MP53 irons are, IMHO, one of the best looking clubs ever made. The state of my game needs more help than they could give me right now, but it could be tempting to have a set and spend time with them at my backyard practice area, aka "Under The Mango Tree Golf & Country Club"

Fitted the Replacement black/white multi-compound grips to the MP53s last night ready for tomorrow’s game,
This will be my second game with the 53s looking forward to see how they play/feel with the new grips fitted..!

I was watching prices of ST180 drivers on well known auctions sites. Sell now prices seem to be around £170 and auction prices were getting around £125 (note the market disparity). I nabbed a driver and 5 wood together through auction for £166 which I thought was a good capture, thinking that I could put the 5 wood back on the site for £60-70 and net really well. Then my 13 year old son pinched the 5 wood and put it in his bag for a team match last saturday. Hit it like a demon so I've bid a hasty farewell to the club and my money saving strategy. ahh well, strategically it looked good for a while.

After waiting for over three weeks, I almost got my Hi-Toe yesterday. The only problems were that it had the wrong shaft and no extra layers of tape beneath the grip. Even the grip wasn't the one I would've wanted because it was supposed to take them three weeks to get that grip back into the stock.

We'll see if this one breaks my previous record made with my MP-H5, which took over two months from order to assembly and another two-three weeks to arrive with a wrong grip and no extra layers of tape. Holding the second place is a Ping i20 driver, the shaft of which cracked from the hosel and it took them a couple of months to get it back to me because they had ran out of the shafts.
