Monday August 15
11:47am – I receive a call from my Mother that my clubs arrived. (Yes, I shipped them to her because she’s always home and I was at work)
11:50am – Leave work to go to my Mother’s and pick up my clubs.
12:10pm – Arrive at my Mother’s and stare at the box. Too scared to open box, I decide to open them at home after work. (Iron Specs pictured)
Yes, I got graphite shafts. These Project X Graphite Iron shafts should really change the stigma people have with graphite shafts. Drivers went graphite, Woods went graphite, Hybrids went graphite…what’s next, irons? Matt Kuchar is half-way there with steel-fiber shafts in his irons. Less wear on your joints and body and I’m just trying to show that they’re not just for “old men” with slow swing speeds.
12:30pm – Back to work, clubs sitting in the car.
4:36pm – Leave work, go to pick up the lady.
4:56pm – Arrive home.
6:00pm – 9:00pm – Open. Drool over clubs, take pictures, reorganize golf bag.
These clubs are gorgeous. I want to eat off of them. They look so clean, I want to perform surgery with them. These are my new babies. I was speechless all night. I just looked at the clubs, peeled off some stickers, made sure they weren’t scratched. I don’t have kids, but let me tell you, I just got 8 gems I will take care of for years to come.
B = Blade
S = Split Cavity
P = Pocket Cavity

9:01pm – hit an 8-iron punch shot in my bedroom into a pillow. (only ball I hit all day). BUTTER. I love these new grooves. There’s so many that I could feel them gripping the ball.
11:00pm – Tweet with Chris Wang and David Mullen about WWE
11:01pm – Good night.
Tuesday August 16
(sorry, no pictures)
6:45am – Wake up
7:50am – 4:30pm – Work
7:00pm – 8:30pm – Serious range session. I hit the Pro Combos so well. I honestly was intimated by these clubs. Let me tell you this, the 8 iron is my favourite club by far. It feels like I’m hitting a wedge, except this is going with some serious distance. I probably gained 10 yards on these clubs. Can’t know for sure though.
I honestly hit them great. I mis-hit my 3-iron three times, because I haven’t hit a 3-iron in about 5 years. But I still had good shots with them. I hit the Split and Blades no problem. Heck, I even took my 4-iron on with some serious results.
I was grinning from ear to ear the whole time I was hitting these clubs. This was the BEST I’VE EVER HIT THE BALL. I’m not even lying. Ask Jane, she was with me. Best range session ever.
I’m going to try and put in 9 holes Thursday, 27 on Saturday and 18 on Sunday. I have a tournament on Monday for work, so I want to put in some work as much as possible before then.
I’m in heaven.
9:00pm – Call my brother who is visiting this weekend to tell him I’m going to CRUSH him when we play.
I’ll be back with a full review after a few rounds.
*Just some background info on me since this isn’t a detailed post. That will come later. I’m a 16.7 handicap. I’ve played 15 rounds this year on the East Coast of Canada and I’ve been playing Nike Slingshot 4D’s for the past 4 years. I play a slight fade on my irons, I wear black socks when I golf and I work as hard as I play*
