Hello TT family,
I hope that each of you are well today. I just wanted to share some excitement with you!
As I have mentioned before, I am pursuing an all Titleist bag, as well as an exclusively Acushnet kit (FJ Apparel). This will take some time, and I am enjoying the process and results. When I first entered this group, I wrote a post about the parallels between golf and any other discipline we might pursue in life. I mentioned striving to perfect things. This attempt to "perfect", is why I decided to choose Titleist as the brand I would be loyal to moving forward in golf. The clubs I have purchased since this decision, have been nothing less than impressive.
Two weeks ago, I ordered my very first Scotty Cameron. I am writing because I know that this was a big event for most of you as well! I also know that many of you have collected Scotty's over the years, so I wanted to include you in my jumping off point. My club pro called earlier this morning to tell me it had just arrived (exactly 14 days from ordering). My wife picked me up from my office for lunch and we went over to the course to have lunch and pick up the Scotty.
I just opened it in my office, and I can't over emphasize how great it feels. Every single detail of the club is immaculate. I cannot wait to take it to the practice green this evening. I went with the Newport 3 because of the traditional mid mallet design, and because it is heel shafted (I tend to have a fair amount of toe flow through puts). It's traditional design aligns with my appreciation for the long history of the Titleist brand, but this club is incredibly modern feeling. My previous putter (O Rossie), is going to a very dark closet for a very long time (after some side by side testing).
I have been familiarizing myself with options from the Custom Shop. After I have gotten good use from its stock condition, I look forward to taking this club to the next level, some time before summer (as the final step of my complete bag plan). Here are a couple pictures of the happy moment this thing came out of the box! Thank you all for allowing me to share a great moment. Have a nice day my friends!
