What’s new in the bag?

New/used PowerBilt 3/4 hybrid

I met my new friend from PowerBilt on a recent Labor Day golf trip to Pinehurst.  After dinner one night, we moseyed over to the Golf Augusta Pro Shop in Southern Pines so I could hunt for some used clubs for my wife and kids to use in the backyard driving range.  Long story short:  Mr. TourBilt made his way into my bag for a measly $5.00 and was in play the next day on Pinehurst #8.  I have never played with a hybrid before but after knocking it stiff on a couple of 200-yard shots a new friendship was born!

This couldn’t come at a better time because the hybrid replaces my Sonartec 5WD which I hadn’t hit in the last four rounds.  Fear of the ugly pull hook had crept into my head exposing the hole in my game from 200-210 yards.  No doubt the pull hook was fully due to operator error, but once that gets in your head it’s hard to clear.  My $5.00 gem may not be the permanent solution, but for now, let’s go play!
