I have Titleist 731pm irons, Cleveland Tour Action 566 wedges, Taylormade
Driver, 3 wood and hybrids. I prefer titelist prov1 balls.
The newest edition is a Ping Redwood Anser Putter. I love this thing.
I got a chance to play yesterday afternoon. Shot a 78 with a couple double
bogeys. Pretty happy with that for this time of year.
