  1. Past hour
  2. Since the forecast for today was a LOT of snow, I played a round of golf yesterday. It was cold, very cold. I was supposed to play with a friend, but he had to back out. As it turns out I was the only person on the course that day. Too funny, Anyway, I played reasonable. Not great, but not horrible either.
  3. Joey B and Chase are a force to be reckoned with if the offensive line gives him enough time. The scary part is Cincy’s line is so bad… if Big Ben can make plays down the field the Steelers have a chance. KC defense is too good for the dink and dunk
  4. Snow, snow, and more snow! Fortunately I was able to play a round of golf yesterday. I fear it will be at least a week before I can play again
  5. Great looking bag, love all the accessories! How much do you find you use the swing caddie during the golf season or on the range?
  6. Today
  7. I'd love to think "MYGOLFSPY" was simply a troller in disguise. But, I think those comments are all vetted by someone or...something.
  8. As others have suggested I would make sure you are using something on your hands regularly. I do not experience the pain or anything you have eluded to but I will tell you that as someone who plays regularly in cool/cold weather that even at 45 degrees to start, you would be amazed at how much any sort of breeze on a bare hand will dry it out. I have noticed several times after getting home even though my hands never felt cold that they were very dried out. I don't have any trouble playing with rain/winter golf gloves on. If this is not ideal for you, then even if your non glove hand isn't cold, bring a mitten or something you can get on and off easy to keep the breeze off your non gloved hand. Tried to play today...nobody was open... it was 27 and sunny at noon, Why was nobody open?

  11. This is my mathematical explanation of why I am going to start using a premium ball again. I am not having a fitting, I am just going to assume as others have indicated that you get what you pay for. If a premium 4pc, 5pc ball can help me a little then I am going to play them. Pretty sure it will be the bad swing which results in poor outcomes for me regardless of the price of the ball I am using. Now if you're launch monitoring balls, and are involved enough to know that a ball that is cheaper, but spins, more or less, and the different cover is actually better, and you have statistics showing this particular ball is helping your game, then my angle of explanation is not for you. I've done the math on my 2021 golf season. I played 45 rounds total cost $1066. Penalties per round 1.09. I am just going to assume all penalties were lost balls, even though they weren't. 45rounds x 1.09 = 49 balls. Going to call it an even 4 dozen for math purposes. A loss cost of 4 dozen balls is going to be added to the cost of my 45 rounds for 2021! This is the breakdown. 25$ balls = 1166 / 45= $25.91 rd. 30$ balls = 1186/45= $26.35. $45(Srixon Z-star, many times you can find them for $40) =1246/45= $27.68. So for an actual cost of 1.33 a round $30-$45 balls, or 1.77 a round $25- $45 balls, or a cost of $60 or $80 a year, 5 or 6 dollars a month I'm going to use a mid priced ball which may not be benefitting me as much. In other words, for the cost of a Starbucks coffee on my way to the course, or bringing my own water or Gatorade, or bringing my own crackers, or other snacks, and only buying a hot dog at the turn, and not the crackers, I can use premium balls!! I'm in. Now I get it this example will not apply to everyone. If you are someone who just doesn't think they are worth it, and other reasons. But if you are playing in excess of 30 rounds a year then the ACTUAL cost of how much more using premium balls will actually cost may not be as much as you think. As soon as I can lose the 7 dozen Bridgestone e12 softs I have, I'm going back to Z-star!
  12. Not this year, maybe 2023 or 2024. https://www.pgatour.com/korn-ferry-tour/stats.html

  14. Great writeup! I expect great things from you this year at the PNW MGS meetup!!
  15. So I'm doing a little panicking/freaking out right now. I have a shoulder injury that could potentially sideline me for the season. Long story short, Thanksgiving week I was snowboarding at Keystone, took a fall, and my left shoulder felt a little stiff for the next day or two after. I didn't think anything of it, went back to my gym routine the following week, and noticed the same stiffness but no loss of strength or range of motion. After about a month in the gym, I took a week off to go on another road trip with the family. When I got back to the gym, something wasn't right. Pressing movements hurt, and I normally do cable external and internal rotations with 15 pounds on the stack, largely to build strong and healthy rotator cuffs. I could barely do 5 with my left arm, and as I type this I have a persistent ache and some odd range of motion issues...I can move it in every direction but some angles come with some pain. And, if I stretch it out (arm across the chest, pulling the arm into me with the other arm) I get about 3-4 pops and clicks from the shoulder. If I have rotator cuff tendinitis, that's about a month of rest and that will drive me crazy, but I can be a big boy and deal with it. If it's a tear, I could be staring at a surgery that will cancel my golf season. I've been icing the hell out of it and I'm finding a little less pain as I explore the range of motion, so hopefully it's just inflamed and I'm slowly bringing that inflammation down. I'm going to see the doctor on Tuesday, and I would think that will lead to an X-Ray or (hopefully) MRI....really really hoping to not lose an entire season. Prior to this my speed and weight training was really paying off. I hit new SuperSpeed PRs (145 C Club, 139 green) and really feel like I can have a great year. We'll see. Fingers crossed.
  16. Definitely interested. A military move this summer makes things pretty tough, but I'll be following and hopefully I can make it work.
  17. Glad you found the review helpful! I've been at Offutt for 5+ years; I'll PCS this coming summer. How many rounds at Willow Lakes? Too many to even think about counting! It's a gem of a course...Robert Trent Jones Sr. design for a military course is unheard of. I'm two strokes away from finally breaking par there...really hoping I can get it done before July (roughly when I think I'll be moving). I hope you do sign up for Foundations; circle back here and let us know about your experience; and welcome to the forum.

    sky mark

    A few years ago our group was last out and we decided to play the back 9 with a 3 club only rule. I tried to sort of really lay off and bunt a driver and I got a weird tee paint mark on the white seem of the original M1. nothing worked to get it off until a friend recommended Nu Finish. It comes in an orange bottle and it’s for car scratches. Cleaned the driver right up.
  19. Left dash gives you what you want from the prov1x and reduces spin around the green.
  20. Depends on anther they have the fitting cart from the previous release. Remeber some brands have two year cycles and some have one year. The shop I frequent still has the fitting carts from last year. They include anything released in summer/late 2020 for certain clubs and anything released last year. The stuff currently available for pre order isn’t in there yet. Also will depend on whether a brand has discontinued a club like the i210. Call whatever fitter you are looking at for what they have available and what they can order
  21. Currently 46, 50, 54, 58. Traditionally have gone 47, 52, 58 or 47, 54, 60.
  22. Is your Ventus the stock or the Velocore version?
  23. Looking for x100 3-pw pulls, do not need to be tour issue, prefer normal to keep price down.
  24. +1 on this.... Although if you win 100 of those matches in a row you could buy a new driver......
