  1. Past hour
  2. Say 5 or 19 years and give yourself one golf tip what would it be? For me it would be driver ball position and tee height. That has made a big improvement off the tee
  3. We've talked about his plight in other threads and that it may be past due for a complete overhaul; coach, caddie, etc. The glaring connection for me was the timing of his games downfall with the engagement and marriage. It could simply be that this has affected that 90% "between the ears" part of the game??
  4. Agree 100% with you there. Sweet spot indeed! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  7. Good points. I forgot to mention, but think it is the case, that many who have been playing in the "players" realm are moving into the PD category. For them wanting more forgiveness but having to jump to GI designs is too large a gap as well. It seems the PD market is a sweet spot.
  8. And the $2,500 isn’t a top end either! Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  9. When struggling with putter contact I stick a bandaid near the toe and heal, on each side of the sweetspot that only leaves a small part of the sweetspot exposed. If you miss the sweetspot and hit the ball on the cushion of the bandaid you know it immediately and the ball goes halfway to the hole. The basics of putting are keeping your core/head rock still, so as long as you do that find a way to set up where you can see the line and make a repeatable stroke. Don't limit yourself to the "conventional" wisdom on setup and ball position - find a way to see the line and let your inner athlete out to roll it on that line.
  10. Something about that tiger quote just hits in all cylinders for me
  11. Forgot to add, head cover included.
  12. I use the Walmart brand, Equate, I think it is, spray suncreen. The 50 spf sport. Usually buy them in the big can, or the 2 pack of smaller cans, pretty cheap compared to the name brand stuff. It works well and is easy to apply. I spray everywhere I can and spray extra on the back of my right hand (not my golf glove wearing hand) to put in on my ears, forehead, etc.
  13. Appliances are insane but even the lower end stuff (we have this upstairs, my beer fridge is the nice one ) are in the 1000$ realm. Good luck choosing one out!
  14. Thanks all. The misses and kids got me a nice shirt! And a replacement French press for the one I broke last week!
  15. The biggest putting difference I've ever seen is figuring out how to best see the line, and develop a stance and stroke that allows you to naturally roll the ball on that line. I putted extremely well when younger putting almost entirely by feel. Had the ball far up in my stance, off the front foot and used an old, short 8802 toe hang putter with my arms fully extended. I got away from that for 20 years listening to the "experts" about how ball should be directly under your eyes, straight back-straight thru shoulder rocking stroke, use the line on ball, etc. Big mistake. I made lots of 3-5 footers, but made way fewer long putts and often struggled with distance control and more 3 putts than I ever had. When I got back to that old putter and actually being able to see the line and roll it pure I putted SO much better. Bottom line is find a way to let the natural inner athlete out and forget about all the technical stuff and mimicking most of the guys on TV.
  16. I think if you really break it down these hollow body players distance irons are really your normal Game Improvement irons with an improved appearance package (Less offset, no cavity back, improved top line). They figured out how to get rid of the deep cut cavities and still put weight where they want it. Did I mention they look great?
  17. I would have had a "static" fitting back in the early 80's when I purchased my Ping Eye 2's. They were my 3rd set of irons and easily the ones that stayed in the bag for the longest time - 20 years or so. I was fit for driver by a club pro in 2005 - we had three sessions that included outdoors and launch monitor. Since then I've had two driver, the Ping long game gapping, one ball and two full bag fittings, including putter both times. I actually learned a lot about my best iron choices from the ball fitting (titleist rep). I'm at that point where I pretty much know what I need although obviously an accomplished fitter would be more current on newer equipment, particularly shafts. My fitter is also my club repair guy so I stay up to date that way. To answer the OPs question it's really up to you about getting fitted. How serious are you about golf? If you are a weekend warrior who enjoys going out and knocking the ball around with your buddies but not that interested in playing competitively, you are fine just picking up a nice used set of GI Irons - since you like Mizuno look for something in their JPX line - if you are a bit more serious you may wish to lay out a few bucks for a fitting and then be committed to playing whatever you end up with for a while. The first thing you may wish to do is learn your numbers - SS, Angle of Attack, wrist to floor, hand size, those types of things. Good luck!
  18. He hit more fairways than he did greens....it was so hard to watch what used to be a great iron player miss shot after shot long. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  19. I’ve been enjoying the evnroll pistol way more than I thought I would! I like a more pronounced bump than it has but it’s a little wider than the Pistolero I was using before that so it fills my hand pretty well.
  20. My current interest in irons are those in the fairly new "players distance" category. It seems most all of the OEM's are vying for a solid spot in this market space. It's a large part of the bell-curve and captures what has been, IMO, a gap for we consumers who improve our game and want to move into the "players" category clubs. Trying to find the perfect balance between looks, distance, and shot shaping, while still offering forgiveness, is no doubt challenging. But it seems the OEM design teams are making headway - and it would appear that Cobra has found a winner with the new Forged Tec irons (gushing reviews https://www.cobragolf.com/king-forged-tec-irons). And, I don't know this Chris M., but we share the same plight I'm definitely including these in my next iron fitting. My wife dosen't know it yet, but she's giving me a complete bag fitting at the Tru-Spec facility in Scottsdale next winter - early B-day present . Based on my demo tests with the i500's, I think this is the club category I can move into - think I left some opportunity on the table when I made the switch. I'd like to hear from those of you in this challenge and others on the forum who have recently ventured from "game improvement" into the players distance market. Who else has tested the Forged Tec irons and how do they compare to other PD irons you've tried/played?
  21. As a teenager into my early 20s I had a horrible temper on the golf course. I snapped clubs by slamming them into the ground, even broke a stand bag once. I had several playing partner tell me they couldn't deal with my schiz any more and quit playing with me. Anymore I feel like there is a line. It's one thing to drop a putter or iron after a horrendous shot, or even curse quickly under your breath at yourself (or ball). All that old behavior of mine is and was unacceptable. More importantly we need to learn to put that bad shot out of our minds before the next one compounds the issue. On to the pros. I like to see and hear some humanity out of these guys. That's also why I'm disappointed TV broadcasts haven't changed during the pandemic and guys aren't miced up. Anyway I think most of this behavior makes these guys look like spoiled brats. When they launch a club into a lake, or bust the head off a wood or putter. You are a professional and you know it's not the clubs fault. Take Dead Aim
  22. How’s a 5.1 magnitude earthquake while you’re on the rowing machine for the most 2020 thing ever?!?!? Epicenter was about 20 miles southwest of my house. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  23. Today
  24. I played the Callaway Chrome soft Truvis in yellow for 3 years and I can see them in the air and on the ground so much better than a white ball, or even a solid colored ball.
  25. If the ball is starting on line at the middle of the green like you describe and you just don't know whether it's going to draw or fade from there then find a feel the gets the ball curving consistently in one direction and adjust your aim point to the opposite edge of the green.
