  1. Past hour
  2. I'm curious if there are other shots where you look at a specific part of the ball as well? Or is that kind of a trick to help eliminate the duffed chips?
  3. Putt on the practice green to get an idea what the course will be like. Take your normal stroke and see if it comes up short, flow out to much or somewhere in between for me I can adjust within the first few holes to the speed.
  4. Today
  5. Normally I play at a few different courses with different green speeds. How do you adjust to that? I can have a very good putting round to just be terrible the very next round and sure some of that could be blamed on a good or bad day in general but I do feel that the different speeds of greens can set me off. If I then have a couple of bad putts in a row I become unsure on every single putt regarding the speed. I try to get a feel for the greens by warming up at the practice greens before the round but at some of the courses I usually visit the practice green is a lot slower then the course it self so then I feel great at the practice green to just be rolling miles on the first green.. So I am curious how you guys attack different green speeds and if you have any advice how to practice etc.
  6. I find quite a few colored balls of various brands.I play a public course with houses and a number of seniors male and female. I find maybe 10 Truvis a year and mayne 30 colored a year compared to 100s of white. Im considering playing them wet season but I just dint like the feel when I try them out.
  7. I knew a guy who got mad and threw his hole bag of clubs into a lake. Later he went swimming. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Well rats, at least you got to play sandpiper tho. Hope it was decent shape. But the views never disappoint!
  9. Sounds like love at 1st flight. Good luck, great start. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  10. It arrived today. As a result, I had a one and a half hour range session that was a super joy! What arrived was my new driver: a Ping 410 Plus with Alta CB Red Soft Regular Shaft. As I am still getting used to the new toy, I started with all the adjustable parts at the most neutral settings. I adjusted to help with my slice. All after that change were straight everywhere I was aiming. I seemed to have picked up 10 MPH in terms of ball speed. I need to work now on the results not being so high. I intended to hit only 20-25 balls. I ended up hitting 45 as this club made driving fun. It was easy to hit towards various target greens. What I need to adjust after a few more practice section is the launch angle, to lower the fact that as with my older drive I tend to hit high spin. I rarely, if ever, fall in love with a club so quickly; but, even with days of getting used to it ahead, as I said in my review on the Ping web site, it was love at first whack.
  11. I had a few “questionable” moments on the course, and this ^^ is exactly the reason why. It doesn’t matter what I’m doing, I’m very competitive and work pretty hard at it. Part of the time, it’s because I’m frustrated that it doesn’t seem like my practice is paying off at all, and the other half is wanting to always do better. That said, one of my main goals this year, has been to channel the frustration into more competitive drive, and use it to help me play better, instead of getting angry and playing worse. It’s been a really interesting learning experience, on how to manage my emotions and turn negatives into positives. It’s made my rounds more enjoyable, made my scores lower, and makes people around me say, “he was a pleasure to play with”, not “wow, what an *******, never want to see him again!”
  12. Everyone that plays this game gets angry..... even if you won't admit it. We all suck to some degree or another compared to the pros.... or even those that are vastly better than us. I gave up being the angry ******* on the course many years ago. I have a lot more fun because of it. Those of you that don't drink while you play..... give it a shot: you might find your rounds more enjoyable. so.... you can'r write a...s....s...hole??????
  13. Everything is too difficult these days. This is why I don't bother keeping an "official" handicap. I use a free HC system. I enter my scores and it calculates my HC. I don't give two shits how accurate or inaccurate it is. It gives me an approximate HC. I'm sitting at a 9+ right now. Pretty much where I figured. I don't compete and I don't plan to. I just play golf and have a good time.
  14. Yep. They've been trying to get him since the draft. Sent from my Pixel 2 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  15. I finally started the offseason program tonight (well a dry run, so to speak, planning on starting a new routine next Monday), and it is no joke! I haven't been in the gym since spring because I focused on range time instead, and I'm definitely going to feel it in the morning. I really hope the program helps with my hip and lower back mobility. I can tell I sit at a desk all day. The exercises that isolated those areas really show just how inflexible I am.

  17. I couldn't sniff 66 on my best day ever! How much you want for that thing?
  18. I leave Thursday evening. I brought my clubs and have only been able to touch them over the weekend. Frustrating as I was planning on a couple nights of just going to the range. Nope, stupid “study hall” each night. Ridiculous... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  19. Yesterday
  20. I have a hard time keeping up with these threads on new members... from all locations across the globe. So for those that I've missed, HELLO & WELCOME TO MY GOLF SPY!!
  21. I remember playing that gnarly bermuda pop shot all too well when I lived in Charleston. It's a totally different shot required than any other greenside shot, indeed. I tend to play wedges more by feel, as well. I play a lot of 1/2 and 3/4 wedge shots, but it's more feel than relying on "known" distances.
  22. I spoke with my pro just the other day about this subject. He pulled out some paper work and read where it would require at least 8 people to post it as playing more (or less) difficult than normal.
  23. High probability of that. I'd estimate 40% UW, 25% WSU, and the rest of us from somewhere else. The WSU grads were much less obnoxious about their football team. Oh they lived and breathed them to the same level, just MUCH less obnoxious. I still have many friends from both colleges and zazz them frequently .
  24. Really need to shake things up with my team. Looking to move a qb and looking for a rb or wr. Feel free to send offers! Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
