    2020 Ball test?

    Isn’t he TP5 pics basically stolen Truvis Technology?
  3. Thanks for the input everyone , much appreciated. Really focusing on what I need for my home course and then round out my bag. Sticking with the 3w/5W/4H but thinking it will change as I get more confident in my swing and distance Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  4. The fitter along with your LM data should get you to the best option. PING has a the "soft regular" (SR) which sounds less emasculating than "senior"... marketing folks think of everything .
  5. Especially since DLIII is a train wreck. He could be good one day but needs a lot of time and coaching. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  7. Ok. Now that I have spent some time with the planemate. Here are my thoughts. As a training aid junkie....this is without a doubt the most helpful training aid ever invented. My inside takeaway is completely gone. My ball flight at the indoor golf dome and on my Skytrak are like watching the same shot get hit over and over and over again. Short game is on point as well. Looking forward to golf trip in March!!!
  8. My initial thought as well... maybe Tiger and others hijacked his custom PXG's and threw this in the cart right after they teed off. But if the dates on this are correct, it could very well be that he was fitted to his current sticks... by a Goodwill employee. https://www.golf.com/news/2020/02/11/breakdown-alex-rodriguez-golf-swing/

Shaft is ALDILA Rogue 60g Stiff flex playing at 44". New Lamkin midsize grip. Headcover included. - Asking $160 obo. PING G400 Max. 9° adjustable loft. Excellent condition! Used it for only 2 rounds, wasn't feeling it. Shaft is ALTA 55g Stiff flex playing at 45". New Lamkin midsize grip. Headcover included. - Asking $270 obo. **Masters towel not included** Sent from my SM-N975U using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  11. Pretty much... at least to the point where it results in lower scoring. Not suggesting that a Nitro or Pinnacle works as well day in and day out, but that the more popular balls do.
  12. Back in my early days of playing golf, I was out for a fun round with a friend of mine and saw something I'll never forget. We were teeing off on the first hole when my buddy hit his drive on a 45 degree, screaming angle. One of the maintenance crew was walking up toward the second green, carrying a plastic rake. Of course, the ball was heading straight for the guy and we yell fore. He leaps forward, throwing the rake behind him as it explodes from the impact of the golf ball. Never been so scared for another's safety on the golf course in my life. He was ok, and we did profusely apologize. Sent from my SM-N975U using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  13. Really looking forward in how this works for you guys. Congrats on being selected, enjoy!
  14. I found the milling to be too aggressive on the course, it seemed like I needed to hit the ball harder than most insert putters on long lag putts (50'+). I do play courses with slow to average speed greens, so that likely didn't help. But the main advantage of milled putters is more consistent and firmer feel than inserts which I found lacking. I did limited testing with a Cleveland HB SOFT and preferred the firmer feel of that head/milling pattern. I believe the grooves provide more lift on the ball as well, the putters come stock with 1 or 2 degrees of loft. I had the loft adjusted up to match most other putters in the 3-4 degree range and the ball appeared to be bouncing off the face and distance control became a challenge. It was a hard decision to sell the only putter I made eagle with but I never felt truly comfortable (didn't like the alignment line and dots) with it and the Shot Scope stats didn't support it.
  15. There's a food grade silicone spray that my custom putter builder told me to use. I would tape the grooves off and then spray the whole wedge after you soak it in coke or clr to remove the black. I always buy the black wedges and remove the finish within the first month or so.
  16. Let me know what you have! S
  17. DawgDaddy has dipped into quite a few pockets with his "Deal of the Day" thread!
  18. Now that you mention it, the MGS team could probably do this analysis with the Most Wanted testing data if they have enough testers hitting both blade and GI irons. I happen to believe you, but there are plenty of people around saying that hitting blades makes you a better ball striker. MGS loves to play the role of mythbuster; this is another opportunity to do it. Whether they do a forum test or use Most Wanted testing data, I'd love to hear something based on data. And I know that there are going to be people whose games are outliers and don't fit the model, but there are outliers in every situation.
  19. Most iron fittings fall in that price range. Depending on the place whether that can be applied is not always the case. Some do it to get the sale but like txg you are paying for a service and the fitters time. They aren’t as worried about the sale. the ball is the one piece of gear played on ever shot and to say that’s on the low end of the unnecessary is crazy talk. every piece of equipment should be fit
  20. The best breakdown is individual testing on the course.
  21. I love to walk when I can and will bring my cart. I'm open to playing 36 holes one of the days - not that I don't want to play more but my shoulders, back, and elbow dictate otherwise.
  22. Exactly. I do not understand the complaints about scores in relation to par nor the obsession of protection of par. The only explanation I can think of is related to the sake of comparison to past eras which people taking this stance strongly deny.
  23. Strange, Its the opposite for me! I can feel my strike location much better on my milled blade putter more than I could on my old White Hot Rossie. I've only rolled a Stroke Lab putter once or twice so not sure if there's more feel on those.
  24. The simple is answer is yes, the the draw biased drivers create draw through weight movement and not just face closure and lie angle https://mygolfspy.com/2019-driver-center-of-gravity-and-moi-report/ Looking at the MOI chart, the G410 Plus in neutral has higher MOI than both the G410 Plus in the Draw setting and the G410 SFT
  25. Yes BX is being used for testing. Additionally it is an average number over multiple golfers. I may average 6000 another 4000 so we get an average of 5000. I wouldn’t put much stock in the actual numbers, the good thing is you are looking at multiple clubs hit in the same environment. So looking across the clubs you can do club to club comparisons. For example I can add 2000 rpm to all those numbers and the comparison between clubs will basically be the same. I would still have to find out how that club performs for me through actual testing.
  26. Let’s have some fun. Once my trade with Shooter has been executed I will be offering this deal up for today only! Brooks Koepka, Phil Mickelson, and Cam Smith as a package deal. Possibly Casey for the right deal! Looking for Rory, DJ, and JT preferably but will listen to all offers. Not necessarily looking for the most/best offer I can get and will move quickly on this one so it can be done before the start of tomorrow’s tourney.

  27. Thanks, me as well. Right now other than driver, the only bag I have. Pretty much as listed in my signature. TS1 Driver SIM 5 Wood G410 7 & 9 Wood G410 hybrid 5 iron T300 6-GW SM7 wedges Hopefully a Spider X putter if it comes in by then, otherwise the SC Phantom 5.5
