#317133 Hit a HUGE milestone yesterday

Posted by scooducks on 20 July 2017 - 05:26 PM

I was able to get out of the office early yesterday for a late afternoon round with one of my best friends. We played golf in high school together, and he was always the number 1 guy, and I was number 2, but he was much better than I was. He went on to play D1 college golf for a couple of years, I stopped playing all together while I was in school. 

 

That being said, I have never been able to beat him, at least straight up. I've come within three or four strokes a few times, but never really a serious threat. 

 

Things have been clicking pretty well with my swing, putter has been a little cold, but all in all I've been getting around the course well and posting some decent scores.

 

Through 9 holes yesterday, we both came in at two over. I three putt 10 and 11 for bogeys, he pars both so I feel like he's starting to pull away. Getting up to the 12th tee I hit the worst tee shot of the day with my three wood, drop kicked it about 190 yards leaving me 200 yards to the pin from the middle of the fairway. I proceeded to hit an incredible 4 irons to about 8 feet and bury the birdie putt. From there I put the foot on the gas and was able to snag another birdie and made a few long putts for par. 

 

When we were tallying up the skins (I cleaned up, came away with $22), I noticed that I shot a 74, and my buddy shot a 75. I have told myself for years that I probably would never beat him straight up, but I got it done yesterday. Might go out and buy a green blazer to commemorate the round.

#305719 Range trolls

Posted by Rusty1885 on 26 June 2017 - 10:27 PM

I went to hit some balls at the muni near my work this morning. I took 4 clubs with me in the mini bag. I was working on impact trying to get the proper shaft lean on my wedges. I lined up 5 balls and started on the line. It was a 9 o'clock swing on my Aw so I'm looking at 85-90 yards carry.

I was at the far end of the range away from the crowd. I got 2 jumbo buckets because I'm working on muscle memory and repetition I know I'll be hitting 'em fast.

There's an older guy who came and settled next to mine with a small bucket, no big deal. We had our pleasant greeting and I was back to my work. About 10 mins into it he stopped and just watch me. I was doing really well at this point my balls flew Med trajectory just like I wanted and it landed right over the 75 marker one on top of another.

Then he said, may I make a suggestion? I looked up. He then followed by, you should take full swing and hit it harder. Your head should move back a little bit on the back swing and weaken the grip. Hmmm! I politely said I'm working on something very specific thanks for the suggestion. He took it as an invitation to come over and proceeded to try to fix my grip. I said my grip is fine and please I just wanna to be left alone.

He went back to the stall and mumbled something, every now and then he'd stopped and look at me and said you should weaken your grip. I saw that by this time he had only a few balls left to hit so I just waited out. Soon he was done and gone.

But wait there's more, the saga continued.

The next guy showed up with his buddy sharing a stall, he apparently teaching his newbie buddy. They were kinda loud but I blocked it out. Soon the guy turned to me and said you should have wider stance and wider swing, the shaft should point at my chin at address, take the club more inside and finish high.

What?, I said I'm working on something specific, thanks. I could here him telling his friend about how I could never be a good golfer because of the flaw I have in my swing. I turn and ask what do you shoot, how is your short game? He said he's a good player with a plus 10 handicap and his short game is excellent.

I pulled out my laser and point at the 100 marker, I said 105. Hit it. He topped the first, skilled the second, pulled the third. I put 2 shots next to the pin and said thank you. We didn't speak again. WTF.

#286909 MGS testing opportunities

Posted by GolfSpy Barbajo on 16 May 2017 - 09:35 PM

We try to social media the hell out of every one of these opportunities (is 'social media' a verb?) - but some things resonate more than others.  The Matrix shafts opportunity went pretty well for shafts - it moved the needle more than any other shaft testing we've done in the past couple of years.  It didn't get the same love or attention on social media because the day that went live was the day TaylorMade's sales was announced, so it just got lost in the shuffle.

 

We have a couple coming up in the next two weeks that are very interesting, but they probably won't create the same kind of buzz as PING or Callaway, but that's just the nature of the beast. We try to collect products across a pretty wide spectrum that we think will be of interest to our membership - sometimes we hit it, sometimes we miss it!

#285319 Life comes at you pretty fast.

Posted by MmmmmmBuddy on 14 May 2017 - 03:00 PM

As many of you know, I have been a club fitter/Web Admin for one of the largest independently owned on course golf stores in the US for the past 14 years. I have loved my job, and was not looking for other employment.

However, an opportunity presented itself, and I am leaving my job to accept a position as the Head Golf Professional at a local Semi-Private golf club in the area. I will be pursuing my PGA Class A Membership over the next few years.
I am extremely excited to take on this opportunity. I will try to stay involved on the forum as time permits, but I suspect that my access to all of the cool, new equipment might be a little limited.

Let me get settled, and maybe we can set up some kind of a West Coast MGS event at my course. (Feels a little weird typing that).

#301212 OFFICIAL FORUM MEMBER REVIEW - PING i200 IRONS

Posted by Shankster on 21 June 2017 - 01:54 PM

Shanksters Stage 1

Hey guys and gals!!

(First I would like to thank MyGolfSpy and PING for the opportunity to test these clubs, it is truly a honor!)

Attached File  IMG_1064.JPG   1.57MB   498 downloads

We will be running Stage 1, Stage 2, and Stage 3 specials all with a different theme. All will be packed full of information, specs, likes, dislikes, huh’s, what's and how's.




THIS WEEKS SPECIAL STAGE 1:

For your first course we have here some cast 431 Stainless steel i200 with a side of elastomer , Black color code (because I like my equipment well done), skewered with a Nippon Modus 105 S, wrapped in Ping Standard White grip… Enjoy!

ABOUT THE CHEF:

What kind of golfer am I? Average score? What's my story?

I would consider myself a traditionalist. I enjoy playing golf no matter what the course looks like, I have played some pretty crappy courses over the years and enjoyed them all. I stray away from bright bold attire, and I prefer to play with clubs that are probably a little out of my skill level.

As with a lot of golfers I grew up in the Tiger boom. So naturally I was a Nike fan, Titleist fan, and a Tiger fan. (Baseball too) I usually play solo, but we are only 3 hours from “home” right now, so I get a few rounds in with my Dad, and father in law in; which is pretty entertaining. I am currently serving active duty and I move around A LOT!! So, I don't have the time to meet people to get a group going.

My average score is the mid to high 70’s with the occasional anywhere in the 80’s round and the OH Crap 90 round sneaks in once and a great while... More so since I moved back to Winterfell.

I am Mechanic by trade.

I'm starting my degree in Turf Grass Management this August, couldn't be more excited! I have 5 kids ranging from 11-3. Been married for 10 years this summer. I took about a 10 year break from golf. Yup, 2 years while we were dating and 8 while moving around every 2 years!!

My typical ball flight?

I hit moon balls with my irons and wedges. No loss of distance through the bag though. I am sure it's a flaw in my swing, but landing on greens is a cinch. The ball stops when I want it to. I like to play the small fade/cut so I'm set up a little open, it feels natural to me and, something about that ball flight just makes me smile (:

Attached File  FullSizeRender.jpg   1.67MB   438 downloads

Why do I LOVE Golf??

I've always been an independent person. All of the games, sports, interests have been about me. Yeah, I am a little selfish when it comes to my “me” time. I played a lot of horseshoes as a kid, and actually won a world tournament in Kitchener, Ontario at age 14. We moved “up north” when I was in 7th grade, there was a golf course right down the street, actually over the hill I could sneak on #10 fairway and practice.

I started working there as a cart boy that summer. I fell in love with golf from the first minute I watched the owner hit a smooth 7 iron into #1… I felt like I was on Caddy Shack. He loved PING, his entire bag was PING and the Pro Shop was full of all their offerings. He passed away last summer, so to be able to do this review is kind of cool for me. Get to play the i200’s on his course this summer.

Golf is me against the golf course and; me against me. I think challenging oneself is really a true test of your strength and mind; Golf tests everything. It's much like a solo chess game. What's your move?

Attached File  FullSizeRender.jpg   2.18MB   432 downloads

Strength of my game?

My iron and wedge play are my strengths. Remember, I am a self proclaimed short game genius. My iron striking is just as good. I can hit draws, fades, high, low when I need to. But my stock shot is a very high 1-2 yard fade with my irons. Putting has gotten a lot better this year too!

It has been extremely windy here early this season, so I've had to keep everything a lot lower than I am used to. So these PING’s will get the knockdown test in your second course.

Attached File  FullSizeRender.jpg   2.37MB   419 downloads

My typical miss??!!

I block the heck out shots when I miss. They all start right and stay right or go righter. I've worked that out of my swing over the last few summers. I tend to leave the clubface open at address sometimes leading to all sorts of fun stuff, usually a large Pine tree to hit from under. I am fairly accurate with my 2 iron - 57° wedge. My usual problem with irons is getting the distance right, maybe I need a range finder.

Attached File  Snapseed.jpg   1.43MB   415 downloads

My region of play?

As most of you already know I live in the “UP” or Upper Peninsula of Michigan near Marquette. We literally have 5 months of golf-able weather. The courses are very - very wet and soggy for the spring play, dry out to a nice desert in summer, and fall is really when the golf here starts. I've played several courses in the Hampton Roads area over the past few years.

Things I am expecting to see from the PING i200...
1. I will be looking for a mid to high ball flight. (Match Current)

2. They should be forgiving but give feedback.

3. Good Turf interaction with the higher bounce or not?

4. Shotmaking ability. Can I hit draws/fades/high/low when I need to?

#248108 Ball Markers

Posted by Liberty Ball Markers on 18 January 2017 - 02:12 AM

My need to tinker has grown... I've moved past putters and started making ball markers. Just a 1 1/4" copper slug, 1/8" thick, stamped with all sorts of fun stuff, and torched for interesting color.

I made a few for my regular foursome just to get some practice. Each one either has a guy's nick-name or something they always say on the front, and the backs are all the same aside from the actual name.



What do you guys think? Anyone else make markers?

#255241 How did you get started in golf?

Posted by Liberty Ball Markers on 05 March 2017 - 01:53 AM

I recently had the opportunity to give a little bit back to the game, and it brought back a lot of good memories from when I started. I thought this might be a good place to share how we got hooked.

I was in high school - 1986. A good friend of mine lived on the country club, played on the school golf and tennis teams, and drove a nice car. I drove an old clunker, and grew up in an $8000 house. Not a typo - $8000.

So... Chad asked if I would like to learn to play. Of course, I had no equipment, nor any money to buy it. We were at his house at the time, and his Dad overheard. He said "we have a family membership at the country club - I'll tell Mike (the pro) to add you to it. I just got new clubs, so you can use my old ones. If you like 'em, keep 'em." They became my 1st set - Wilson FG 17 blades.

That weekend, Chad was going to take me to the course to play my 1st round of golf. I got to his house in jeans and a t-shirt (all I had). Again, his Dad chimed in "you'll need slacks and a collared shirt to play - gonna need shoes, gloves, and other stuff too." Before I could chime in with a response, he said "Chad, just take him to the pro shop and get a few outfits and some shoes - have Mike put it on my tab." I told him I couldn't afford all this stuff, and he said "it won't cost anything - they'll just put it on my tab."

So, we go do some shopping, and I spent the next 3 years posing as part of their family at the nicest course in town without paying a dime for any of it.

Needless to say, I was hooked, and would have never been able to start if they hadn't helped.

30 years later, after playing during my college years, quitting to raise kids, then getting right back to it, I finally have the chance to help the golf team at a local high school (mostly low-income kids who want to play but can't afford equipment). Being a putter ho, I've been able to build up some custom putters for them, and being a ball hunter, I've been able to donate about 1000 balls to practice with. Once they have a final team assembled next week, I'm going to make a personalized ball marker for each of them.

#116337 How Forum Testers Will Be Chosen (do not apply within)

Posted by GolfSpy T on 30 September 2013 - 06:22 PM

As the MyGolfSpy Forum has grown, so too have the opportunities for our Community Members to test and review golf equipment for the other members of our forum. To date, the reviews our community members have produced have been of the highest quality.

You have followed our template. You have done an amazing job working with our staff to keep things organized, and you have stayed true to the MyGolfSpy tradition of proving objective and honest reviews.

We have not asked you to be cheerleaders blasting away on Twitter of Facebook to sing the praises of MyGolfSpy of the golf companies whose products you have reviewed. We have asked only that you call it like you see it – good, bad, or otherwise, and you have done exactly that.

Unfortunately that hasn’t been good enough. As our community has grown so has the in-fighting, snipping, and to call it what it is, the aura of self-entitlement. Our forum is not as tight and friendly as it once was. Much to our dismay, it’s becoming more like every place else.

After much discussion, GolfSpy X and I have decided that if growth means tolerating obnoxious behavior, spiteful comments, and any of the other silly business that comes from people who generally don’t know 10% of what they think they do, and worse yet, means we get pulled away from the important things we’re working on to grow the site in order to settle petty disputes between adults acting like toddlers, then quite frankly, we’re content to chase a few readers away and grow more slowly if it trade-off is we don’t have to deal with any more nonsense.

At the heart of some of the issues is our forum testing program. With every selection there are inevitably behind the scenes grumblings about who deserved to be selected and wasn’t, and whose entry was better than another’s. It’s tedious. It’s unnecessary. And it ends today.

Beginning with the next round of equipment (ETA early November, if not sooner), we will no longer be putting up posts asking for volunteers to test and review equipment for the MyGolfSpy Forum. There will be no questions to answer, no photos to post, no requests for specifications. All participants for future forum testing opportunities will be chosen by the MyGolfSpy staff.

How Equipment Testers Are Chosen

There are four basic critera/considerations we look at when we choose our testers:

1. Donors – There’s no behind the scenes BS. When we say we don’t take advertising from big golf companies, we mean it. We don’t take so much as a dime. The consequences of that are that we have to rely on our readers for support…and truthfully, as much of it as we can possibly get. Moving forward, we’re going to be more overt about supporting those of you who support us. A minimum percentage of all product (25%-50% depending on quantity – guaranteed) will be set aside for MyGolfSpy donors.

2. Quality Content – The best way to ensure quality is to rely on people who have provided quality in the past. Well-written, humorous, or thought-provoking posts will go a long way towards you being selected. Photos are an important part of any review as well. We’re going to give priority to guys who have proven they can produce quality photos.

3. Participation – In the past we’ve used review opportunities to try and grow the forum. That’s over. I’m not saying 100+ posts are required, but I can damn sure promise you we’re not giving away anything to somebody whose only contribution to your community is a “pick me, pick me, I want this” post. If somebody wants to participate in our community review process, he needs to participate in a more general sense.

4. No Douchebags – The foundation of our moral code is that we…every last one of us…treat each other…every last one of us…with respect. Civility is the new buzzword. I don’t expect you to agree with everything I say, or agree with everything that everyone else says, but there are polite ways to have conversations, and polite ways to have disagreements without resorting to name-calling, and other childish behaviors that have inevitably, and unfortunately become a part of every online community.

It’s insidious behavior, and I’m no longer willing to reward even a little of it. We’re not going to start pulling down posts or anything like that, but I can promise you this: all community testing opportunities will be reserved for those who carry themselves with class and treat others with respect – always.

How to Let Us Know You Want to Test

If you are interested in being a MyGolfSpy Equipment Tester, there are a few things you can do to signal your interest in being selected.

1. Update your signature to include the following info:

a. Iron specs (flex, length/lie)

b. Driver specs (loft/flex)

c. Dexterity (right or left-handed)

d. Where You Live

e. Your handicap or average 18 hole score

2. Make sure your content includes the occasional picture. We have to know you can take quality photos.
3. Conduct yourself with class and treat others with respect – Always.


Allotments, and terms (USA vs. Worldwide, Left-handed vs. RH only, stock vs. custom, limited lofts, etc.) vary wildly from opportunity to opportunity, so providing as much info as you can will help us find qualified testers.
