  1. Today
  2. We're back from our vacation to the Monterey Peninsula and like all of the other testers I'm super anxious to be engaged and get the whole process going. Something that I learned just this past year, and with all of the extra "at-home" time that we had, is that my most natural and repetitive putting stroke (or at least I think it is) is pretty straight back but with a moderate arc past impact and through the release zone. I also incorporate a good deal of shoulder turn where I lift my left and drop my right and keep my right elbow tucked into my rib cage. I ended up putting well with a p
  3. I was at my local shop the other day. The owner said he called about an iron order placed in April. The rep said the order hadn’t been started and he would check on the hold up and call back. The next day the irons were delivered. The rep called and said they should be delivered soon. The owner said they’re here but why couldn’t the rep see the previous day that they had been shipped? Basically, the rep replied that the computer system couldn’t be relied upon for accurate info and everything on his end was a huge cluster….
  4. Super excited to see Rahm win as he is who I picked with my no-purchase necessary contest entry. Re-read the rules again since I have in theory "won" and my previous post was incorrect. The mail in entries don't get a gift card, they're going to send me a driver of my choice. This will make the full bag fitting I had scheduled for next week a little more interesting. I really want to know what the best driver for me is, but I also have 30 days to pick one of the Epic drivers and shaft combos that I'm getting for free. So I need to find the best driver and then the best Epic driver/shaft c
  5. I did not know Valley opens 10/1, good to know.
  6. That comment looked a lot better yesterday than it did today.... Glad to have finished in the top 100, I'm definitely better at picking golfers than I am at actually golfing
  7. Buds! Arizona State Sun Devils.
  8. Congratulations to Team The Right Stuff!!! for your First Place win Mine was a respectable 108 place finish in a field this large and so glad to see someone else had the top MGS finish Awesome to see Jon Rahm pull off the victory with the first class response he had in response to his DQ two weeks ago, bravo for being in control of his game!
  9. two stood out today, and i can’t decide. first was my second shot on a long par 5. had 303 in and a good lie, so why not go for it? pulled 3w and hit a high draw that landed on the front of the green and rolled on to the back left collar second was a par 3 playing about 170 uphill, i put my 9i to 3 feet
  10. I have not been a Jon Rahm fan but after the Memorial and how it handled it , I’m now in his corner. Interesting how Phil hung around after he completed his round and was one of the 1st to congratulate Jon and his wife. class act.
  11. I also picked him, figured he would be pumped after The Memorial.
  12. I just lost another headcover while walking using a golf caddy. I take the cover off and place it on the caddy, then put the club back in after a shot and forget to put the cover on. Walking down the course the cover falls off where I perched it and I lose it. Yes, I get distracted and am absent minded. What have you found to work to keep from losing a headcover?
  13. I should pay better attention to what I am doing too.
  14. 50/43 for a 93 today. played with my dad in a father/son event at his club. the course at his club is pretty challenging. it’s tree lined with a lot of doglegs, the rough is thick, and the greens are fast. i was happy with the way i struck the ball and scored today. plus any day you can play with your pops is great.
  15. I’m going to say no as the post above yours says sold. Also after a quick check he/she hasn’t visited since 2018
  16. Pretty awesome that Rahm got this win, especially after that COVID notification a couple weeks ago. I thought to myself…wait, I picked him to win…but it looks like many others did as well.
  17. Do you still have this by any chance?
  18. Thinking about picking-up another Honma TR20 driver, all stock, to replace the Sim 2 Max I just tried. I have an extra Xphlexxx Busa shaft currently at 45.5..
  19. Crazy to think that Tiger only came from behind once to win a major!
  20. Rahmbo!!!!!!!! About time! I have a feeling now that the seal is broken, many more will follow.
  21. Shucks but sorry it was by accident would save me on my little waiver money I have left
  22. Late to the party but here’s my rank of public courses in Bham. I live here and play them a lot. 1) Ross Bridge 2) Oxmoor Valley - Ridge Course 3) Ballantrae Golf Club 4) Oxmoor Valley - Valley Course (opens back up October 1st, re did all the greens and changed the hole layout on 3 of them) 5) Bent Brook/Timberline i would 100% go to Farmlinks/Purcell Farms. I would also go to RTJ Capitol Hill (Montgomery) If you only got 3 courses and don’t mind spending a little more. I’d go Ross Bridge, Farmlinks, and the Judge course at RTJ Capitol Hill (same drive from
  23. Got out for the first round with the Max LS today, literally the first swing with it came on the second hole. Given that I am working on some swing changes distance was down and I forgot to add the course to my Shot Scope, but tracked an average at 250 which is better than my terrible delivery has given me lately. Looks - So what you came for, my first impressions. Ad mentioned in the unboxing the club looks great and this continues on the course. It frames the ball well and it feels like it sets up square to the ball easily, which I love as my SZ Extreme lately has felt open. Sound
  24. Saturday at Los Altos (tournament) - 43/42-85, 9/18 GIR, 38-putts (4, 3-putts, and 2, 1-putts) I was playing with 2 other guys that had better handicaps than me, which doesn't happen for me too often, at least not as much as I'd like for it to. I've heard it's better to play with people better than you. Course Handicaps were 4, 6, and 11, and we all shot 43 on the front...I had 2 doubles on the front, over shot the green on my 3rd into a par-5, then 3-putted, hit my second shot OB on #9 and that turned into my second double. The putting was really frustrating because I had been putting
  25. This is an awesome idea, would love to participate!
  26. I would recommend the drive to Purcell Farms. Ross Bridge and Oxmoor Valley are very good. Another very fine course is Timberline in Calera just a short drive south of Birmingham. The Valley Course at Oxmoor is closed until Oct. 30 but the Ridge is the better of the two IMHO.

    1. 1. You have to hit a single shot. You don't know what it is: it could be a drive, an approach, a short game shot, a recovery shot, or a putt. Before I show you the shot, you get to choose one part of your bag that I cannot replace; everything else in your bag is replaced with generic, off-the-rack clubs. What are you picking?
