  1. Past hour
  2. I don't miss this - having to play a different ball from October (leaves) to April (plugging). The Tour is a very good ball - It did well in the MGS robot testing and as a human tester I will say that I could certainly game it. Stay away from the Tour x unless you have a very high swing speed - it was the case in our test group and also as I tested it - sometimes close to 20 yards shorter than the Tour or my gamer - Pro V1x. When I've let one of the high SS guys that I've been playing with hit it they do fine - its a flop for everyone else that I know.
  3. This is a great looking set. I just bought the KBS TD driver shaft and it is great. I am not thinking about these. I looks like they are weighted different depending on flex. So the highest weight is the 110G and looks like it would be their X flex is that correct?
  4. Well said....incredible and insane sum it up nicely.
  5. Actually it was after all of the above - even the fitter acknowledged that it seemed like an odd fit but that he had made it for another, similar player - my swing consistency along with a need for a bit more spin (in his opinion) on driver plus higher launch were his rationale - I was able to get a few additional yards with it (around 5 all carry) on the Trackman that day. Having written that the reality is that I was longer and straighter with my G400 LST and its shaft than I have been with this shaft/head combo. I've been to several driver fittings and in the end found that shaft weights in the 60's were best for my swing - I'm just not getting the run out with the current set up nor am I getting dispersion consistency - my misses are equally distributed left and right - I haven't gone for an LM session since last Spring but don't really need to - it's easy enough to tell that my spin rate is too high and angle of decent too steep.

    They are absolutely fantastic shafts - key is finding one that fits you. They have quite the comprehensive portfolio so they generally have something for everyone. Fitting is key

    I have tried them; don’t fit my needs so I don’t play them. High quality shafts and there are a few on the forum that play them in their clubs. The key is finding the right shaft for your swing needs Is there anything specific you are trying to learn? More details might help people respond with better answers.
  9. Some bad snow will be crushing the Northeast and just west of it soon. Good Luck everyone. Warmer here in NJ, but very windy. I need to find some down wind par 5s.

    I have been receiving emails from a retailer about accra shafts. Has anyone ever used an accra concept shaft? Thanks Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Agree with everything up to dl3 only because I haven’t watched/listened to anything he’s been on. Golf is usually on my split screen or it’s background noise while I’m doing other stuff
  12. I don't have any personal experience with the Ping Glides. If you don't get any info from us folks on the right side of the ball, perhaps check with those lunatics on the other side of the ball in the Shiny Metal section of the forum.
  13. Today
  14. Well. My initial assumption was wrong. This thing is incredible and insane! I really had no idea that there was a big scandal around the game. And it didn't even involve a giant corporation being jerks. I'm just so used to all documentaries being about the crappy things corporations have done. I'm struggling to find the correct adjectives to describe McMillion$. I'm really hooked and just astounded at all of the ways people behaved. Or allegedly behaved.
  15. Curt Byrum and Frank Nobilo are the two best on-course commentators in the business. Byrum is the most underrated commentator in professional sports in my opinion. He is pleasant to listen too, extremely knowledgeable and doesn't talk to hear himself talk. I would add Shane Bacon and Brad Faxon to the list as well. They would be the lead duo in the booth of my preferred broadcast team. Peter Kostis was on my short list as well until CBS dumped him for Dru Love's dad.

  17. My last significant golf holiday was a week in Scotland in 2018. A friend of mine did all the bookings himself, and it was no real problem. In hindsight, we might have chosen to stay at a different hotel for one of our two locations, but booking through a travel service wouldn't have eliminated that hotel. I've planned 2 trips to Ireland and two to Scotland the same way, and never an issue. I go to Pinehurst pretty often, because I own a condo at one of the golf resorts there. We book all of our golf through the resort, since they always get us lower rates than we could on our own. In that area, booking through a resort or service might save some money, although using something like AirBnB could save enough money on lodging to offset the higher costs for golf.
  18. The cost of making golf balls isn’t anywhere near the cost of golf clubs. The dtc golf club brands tend to keep lower inventory and have a lot less sales than a larger brand. Even if there are brands that share the same molds (some will call them blanks) they still have to pay out a price for that. There probably a minimum order as well. Let’s say it’s 100 sets. Does sub 70 as an example think they can sell 100 sets of a particular iron? They have 5 different iron lines iirc with some different options for finishes. They have to pick which one of those lines they are going to make in lh and if they pick tem he wrong one they are left with lots of inventory and wasted money. Which then has impacts on other project they may be thinking of or have in the works. The risk is too great for them.
  19. Does anyone else find it funny that he was using a non-conforming driver? You mean ARod was cheating at a sport?! I find that hard to believe. haha
  20. that list has some really good commentators with les than “stellar” careers. Nails the point the career achievements don’t equate to performance on air commentary. Wie did a good job in studio for the golf channel during the solheim cup.
  21. I’m thinking a 1st time winner this week, lots of young fresh talent coming up. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  22. Had to post it, my putter shoe from Best Grips finally came in.
  23. I'm sure the telecast will sorely miss your viewership.
  24. Notah Begay, Phil Blackmar, Curt Byrum, Billy Ray Brown, Jerry Foltz, Matt Gogle, Billy Kratzert, Frank Nobilo, Mark Rolfing, Jim "Bones" Mackay, Peter Kostis, David Feherty, Gary McCord, Aron Oberholser, Jim Gallagher Jr................................................................................. Besides, she can't possibly be as bad as DLIII!!!!!
  25. If the performance is there and the price is right, why not? I'm already buying DTC balls from Vice and had great experience with DiamondTour's customer service. The clubs worked pretty well for a beginner, but once you are hooked on the game, you want more and more and unfortunately, only OEM offer fittings in Europe. I would also like to try Sub70 if the demo program was offered in Europe as well.
  26. It depends on the dtc. Depends on how you read past posts in social media from new level but they use some sort of mold that that is more for them than just a blank generic one. Even so somebody has to pay for them plus the rest of this materials. The cost to sell an extremely small amount of sets isn’t worth it for the smaller brands. Let’s say for sub 70 they sell 1000 sets in a year how many of those could/would be lefties? The chances are the lefties might even cost a bit more to make up the costs now that brand is competing with all the well known names and other dtc brands. Scotty Cameron who is doing pretty well financially doesn’t make a lot of lefty options with the otr putters because of costs. Him and titleist combined have the resources to make them and take a chance but they know they will probably end up with too much stock laying around
  27. What does her playing career have to do with her ability to be a commentator...she does have a major. Charlie Rymer, Paige McKenzie and Robert Damron are/were some of the best Morning Drive personalities and do a good job working events as well and they have less wins than Wie combined.
