Haven't taken a trip in the last year but my group usually locates a home in the area we're going to be playing. We have found and rented most of them through a VRBO or some such service. We've always been able to speak directly with the owner. So far this type of arrangement has worked great for us. Like Dave's Pinehurst experience, a home owner we rented from there once was able to get us preferred tee-times at a few courses.
March 20th has been on my calendar for about 8 months in anticipation for the Connecticut Golf Expo 2020 in Hartford, CT. I have been to plenty of sports expos but nothing specific to golf. I am heading out there for the Friday opening and will be looking to get as much exposure to the vendors and activities as possible without the crowds on the weekends. My main goal will be to try out / get fit for new irons. I got fit at Club Champion last May before I really started playing my best golf last summer / fall, and recommendation was JPX 919 Hot Metals. Since then I have had my eyes on those as well as the new MP-20 HMB's for a possible split bag scenario depending on how the fitting goes. Anyone ever been to the CT expo? Tips or insider ideas on how to maximize this experience??
Tried the matte white Tour last weekend. I now realize why most golf balls are glossy white. I am near sighted and wear glasses when I play, but even so, the matte finish is tough to see visually. Played the back 9 with a PV1 and there was a bit more distance but not a tremendous amount. If you can afford it the PV1 is a better ball but these aren't far behind.
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?
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.

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.
I went to Swingbyte's website and they say they are on back order. They don't even show up for sale on Amazon.
@chisag - There you go again, taking situation and context into consideration and making a rational decision that's best for both yourself, the others in your group, and every other golfer on the golf course. We're not supposed to be self-centered bastards on the golf course?
Yes, Phil is still hitting the ball a long way, particularly for his age, but has always been horrible accuracy-wise. Long and in the rough is not good for his condition. His marvelous short game is somewhat overrated. We get to see some miraculous Phil shots when he plays (because he has to make them), but he also makes a lot of mistakes with short game shots. I saw quite a few during the west coast swing. He hasn't been in the top 20 in Strokes Gained around the green since 2012. He can't recover from bad shots as well as he used to. I think Phil will play on the Champions Tour with a few select PGA Tour events just like most of the pros who become eligible for the Champions Tour do. He said last year that he is not going to play at events where the rough is too thick because of his arthritis. If the Tour takes to heart what Dean Snell said about rolling back the ball, there could be more courses with slower, narrower fairways and thicker rough in the future. That is not a recipe for Phil staying on the Big Tour.
If you keep doing that every day, you should notice a much better short game when you play the whole course. I say this because my friend had an injury (cracked 3 ribs; funny story for another time), so he only carried his wedges and putter. When he healed up, he had a much better short game... and it stuck with him for years. Hope the healing goes quick, but don't rush it.

100% correct!! Will they listen... no
Driver is sold. Really want to get these irons sold, so I'm willing to do $115 shipped if anyone is interested Sent from my SM-G970U using MyGolfSpy mobile app
Was at the driving range again today and today was a better day overall. One thing i am going to change is no more random practice swinging at home. All those different feels that i try at home without a ball don’t end up working well. will be out on the course on sunday, can’t wait.
