  2. A little off topic since it has nothing to do with putters but here is a tip that transformed my distance control from Monte Scheinblum. Vary the width of your stance based on how long the put is and take the putter back just past your back foot and then follow thru past your front foot. Every stroke should have the same tempo (time) so the longer the stroke the further the ball goes. In my head I say "back foot, front foot" to set my tempo and as long as that is consistent then I make adjustments to my width of stance. It also takes some emotion out of lag putting because if I set me feet wrong there is something that I can easily adjust the next put. It did not take me long to get used to this same technique and have been using it for a couple years.

  4. Not at all. If I do my part, the ball goes where it's supposed to with any of these clubs. I got back into the game last year after a lay off of several years. I didn't want to break the bank but I still wanted mostly new clubs because it's just nice to have new things sometimes. At some point I may go get fitted in the near future.
  5. Of course! I haven't yet hit any shots with it though.
  6. Arcadian Shores is real close, too. It's a bit of an older course, not too long, but looks fairly tight. We usually go to the Litchfield area, which is on the south end of the Grand Strand, so it's been quite awhile since I've been in the area you are staying.
  7. Hmm, according to the back of the packaging the product includes some of the most necessary tools used in golf along with a few bonus features. So which are necessary and which are bonus? Guess it depends on the golfer.
  8. I say you talk to the guy. Obviously he has a reason for what his doing. If you know he is always looking for boxes then maybe you can just set them aside for him. Personally I hate putting boxes on the street. You never know if a storm is going to swoop in and make a mess. If I had this guys phone number I’d just shoot him a text, “come and get ‘me”.

  9. I think the public's average return is about 3.25% when managing thier own investments, but I wouldn't blame timing as much as I would blame them letting emotion make thier decisions, instead of sticking to whatever plan or goal they have. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk

  12. I've gotten past the sound my 410 SFT makes too and if yesterday's range session is any indication, it is indeed forgiving as all get up. Out of around 25 hits with it, I had 4 or 5 that I either hit from the toe or high up on the face that still flew fairly straight and out to the 220 range. It was a good session for me where I could actually tell if it was a bad strike or not by both sound and feel. I hope what you found there will produce dividends for you and I'm real excited to read all of the pending stage-I's for the tests. Keep 'em coming Rev!

  14. Yeah in the moment, this was my exact logic. The fact that his mother didn't know the specifics of which Titleist he was wanting more or less told me that he didn't know the specifics. A while back I was golfing with my pops who is a decent and avid golfer but completely oblivious to brands and models of equipment.. that's ok because I'm nearly hyper obsessive and can't expect others to understand how my brain functions. He asked me to get something out of his bag and I noticed a wild mix of Titleist ball models. I asked him why he was using so many different models.. he kind of gave me a blank stare and said.. "well I've seen you use them so I got a box of 100 from Amazon for cheap". I'm guessing that out of 100 he might have gotten 5 pro V1s and never knew if he'd used one. To him a Titleist was a Titleist. He recognized the brand but didn't really "know" the brand. Truth be told, I may have used a Pro V only a few times but most other times I use the TM P(a) but it was Titleist that he recognized. I then gave him a Pro V1 to use and explained the difference.. within about 3 holes he said.. I should have called you before I bought that box. Even then I talked him out of anything Titleist and convinced him to try the K-sig balls. Now that's all he uses. Even after he understood the difference, I knew that him or his game wouldn't benefit anything from spending more money on fewer balls. the more I practice, the luckier I seem to get..

  16. Totally with ya there! Working *hard* on it myself, too....
  17. Dear members, I am going to Santa Clara for a business trip. I think I can squeeze 3 games in. I am wondering any advice on where to book my tee time and which golf courses to play? I am looking at 1) Cinnabar Hills Golf Club (Weekday) 2) Stanford Golf Course (Sat) 3) The course at Wente Vineyard (Sun) --> so that I can get some shopping done. Or other course that you think I should play before the above? When I google, I saw a lot of website booking tee time. So I will assume walk in rate will be more expensive? Thanks for any advice.
  18. 4-PW with either Recoil F3 or KBS 90 stiff https://shop.touredge.com/products/exotics-cb-pro-tungsten-irons Free shipping orders over $99 Sounds like a deal to me! --- ADVANCED SET OF EXOTICS IRONS EVER The CB PRO Tungsten irons are designed for players adamant about forgiveness, control, and distance. The hollow design necessitates a solid tungsten sole for optimal weighting and to support the super thin variable face thickness. The long irons are also available individually; CB PRO Tungsten utility irons are designed for players wanting easy to hit, long distance irons. Each CB PRO Tungsten iron, 2-AW, is hollow from the top line all the way to the sole producing a more active face. To accommodate the hollow design, the top line is thicker, but the progressive set allows players to shape shots superior to traditional cavity-back irons. Exotics hollow irons greatly expand the sweet spot so it feels like a clean hit every time. ---
  19. It is a good few! However it's not quite as tiny as most think. Thankfully being in Halifax I'm about half way to everywhere. To Cabot courses it's about 4.5 hour drive. To the southern tip it's a bit over 3 hours and about 1.5 hours to New Brunswick. We are stupid fortunate to have a lot of great courses, not all are amazing and many suffered a bad winter and spring, but here is to hoping we get some better weather soon!
  20. Yup love mine. I might try the new Hogan driver when they add it to their demo program but other than that, not interested in anything else. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

  22. I have played eight rounds since using this green. My make percentage from 10-15 feet ( my weakness last year according to strokes gained) has gone way up from my older rounds. I save all of my rounds using a strokes gained database so I was able to compare my putting handicap prior to the Little Murph to now. My putting handicap has dropped to +5 (rounded) from scratch level. I am ecstatic. My five foot make percentage is off compared to last year but it is only eight rounds so that sample size is small. But, by that same argument, my sample size is small for my improvement in longer putts. I will update as the year goes on. I used to just putt 5-6 footers in the house to practice on my old green, and I feel this longer green has made a difference.
  23. I will say you have came a long way since the original post
