  1. Past hour
  2. Makes sense. I'd love to play if there are any other events you need players for - Pumpkin Ridge, Pronghorn? Keep it in mind, if so. Stay healthy
  3. Today
  4. I have withdrawn my team. My understanding is that it is unlikely to be played unfortunately Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  5. Doesn't look like the event is cancelled yet. Do you have your players?

  7. Just getting into posting here on MGS. I've been a forum user for a while, but thought I'd start posting and contributing after I've become an MGS disciple. I've been swinging sticks since I was about 4-5 yo. My parents used the golf course as a free baby sitter. I grew up in Bismarck, ND where the Junior Golf program is outstanding. Five public courses in the area that allowed any U-18 player to tee off for free as long as it was before noon. I could play up to 54 holes on some mornings and be done around 3-4 for my parents to pick me up. I played competitively through HS, then lost the game through college and early career years. I'm a natural 8-9 handicap, but since I picked up new gear I've committed to reaching 4 this summer. I love most everything about this game, maybe not all of the industry, though. I've done every job there is on a course except being a club pro. Cart barn, greens crew, bev cart (dudes don't get tipped that often), pro shop, kitchen. I love being outside, the strategy and executive decisions, the smell of the grass, and most of the people I get to play with. Also love the betting games and those side bets. I'm a mechanical engineer, but find a different mindset on the course. Any other engineers out there? Any loopers looking to play? It may be my last summer here in OR so I'm setting out to make a tour of all the great courses out here.
  8. Can I have a broke 80 badge added to my account please?
  9. If you run out of knife’s at least you can still butter your toast. great looking TM set-up!!
  10. I started using this marker a couple of years ago. i use it off the T every time but on the green it doesn't seem to help as much as i thought it would. I average under 2 putts per hole as it is.
  11. I appreciate the love guys!!
  12. I played competitive golf growing up, gave up the game for about 6-7 years, and had always played off-the-rack clubs. I picked them back up again last year and knew it was time for a fitting and a complete bag upgrade. I went through a big research period of how to get the most out of a fitting, who does the best fittings, what to look for. I'm an engineer, so I'm very analytical by nature. I ended up going through 3 different fittings. I flew into Denver on a business trip so made sure to set up a PGA Tour Superstore fitting van experience ($49.99). They also offer a free version. This was an amazing experience and the fitter had an amazing knowledge. I tried to push through a whole bag fitting, because I was only in town for a day. I fit my irons, Apex Pros, and went on to drivers. I hit TaylorMade, Titleist, and Callaway. I never felt pressured in any way, the fitter was always making changes and commenting on things he was observing. I decided I was too fatigued and my data wasn't accurate, but I left knowing what I didn't like. I went to a small mom and pop shop in Portland, OR next. I live out here and wanted to support the small guys. They had the exact set-up that the Superstore had, but they were a new shop and their fitter didn't know how to use all of the tech. It was not a good experience and he didn't make me pay, although it would've been free had I made the purchase with them anyways. I did not want to come back here for fitting even though they were the shop I wanted to support. My next fitting was at a public course here in Portland that is known for their fitting, lessons, and retail; it's a great facility. All of their fittings are done on the range, which I was very hesitant to do. Especially in the early Spring with temperatures relatively low. As an engineer, I just didn't want to trust a Trackman to "normalize" the data to fit the ball I play, the average temperature of a Summer day, etc. To my surprise, this was an amazing fitting with one of the most knowledgeable golf guys I've ever interacted with. He had relocated from the east coast, leaving his personal fitting and rep business and was now doing more of what he loved instead of pushing a single brand and relying on sales. He honed my driving into a predictable and optimized ball flight, it was unbelievable. He swapped in some premium shafts and then swapped me back into stock shafts. The $300 premium shaft gave me a marginal increase in performance and it was almost matched with a stock shaft. I have never been happier and more confident with a driver in my hand, my new Titleist TS4. This fitting was FREE. I want all of the big shops selling $150 fittings to fail so hard. I urge anyone reading this to do some research and go try some fitters out, don't take their word as the gospel. Two out of my three fitters I would call up in a heart beat to help me re-fit or make other changes. And in another year I'd go check out the third again. Find someone trustworthy, whose business model isn't to suck an extra $500 out of you. Golftec and Club Champion have the business models that just make my stomach turn. There is so much better out there and that's why I'm here at MGS. Here's to those fitters out there that care about actually improving your game.
  13. I started golfing 2 years ago. I have an ER6. luv it. Putting is all about feel. A couple of games wont give you enough time to enjoy the putter. I like the longer lines on the top of the putter to help line up the putts. I painted the 2 groves on top of my putter EVNROLL red. Looks cool
  14. I heard that last part in the voice of Peter Venkman. Sounds like it's been a bit crazy weather wise up there with the tornado and feeling the earthquake. Sunny and 59 sounds good, though. We've had a couple of days around 70 here until today and it was rainy and 53 with another cool day coming before warming back up. Sent from my SM-N975U using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  15. Not sure how much of a hookup you got from Jones, but Vessel is sold on neimanmarcus.com and I got like 30% off using a coupon they were running. They have one that they send out just for signing up for their emails, it's not quite 30% but it helps! The bag is almost perfect, just wish the small side pocket wasn't so useless. Whatever I throw in it just ends up lost in the bottom. Thinking about having my friend make me an organizational pouch. He makes tactical gear so it's right up his alley.
  16. Weather must be getting better across the country... not many people posting about it. Also, the coronavirus seems to sucking all the conversation up lately. Well, we had a high of 59º with some sun and a few scattered showers... oh yeah, and a small tornado!! In Washington State!!! Very rare! This was followed up by a 6.5 earthquake in central Idaho that was felt in Washington and Montana. Coronavirus, tornado, earthquake... what's next? Dogs and cats living together?
  17. This definitely gets my interest aroused. The V2 is one of the ugliest wrist devices I've ever seen. If these things could function like a regular smartwatch and do normal smartwatch things, it would make getting one irresistible!
  18. Well as I am lacking black paint and found myself with a lot of time on my hands, I decided to just go off the rails and repurpose an unused phone skin. Definitely not a look for everybody but I like it!
  19. You reminded me of when I used to do something over on Univ of Louisiana Monroe’s campus. Hmm. I gotta find my shag bag!!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  20. No hook-up on those. [emoji30] I love their look, though! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  21. I ain't even mad at ya! Gotta hit the ground running once those courses open back up!
  23. Well all I appreciate all the help. I tried one more time with butane and heat gun and didn't succeed so I bought a propane torch. 10 minutes later I had the 3 remaining heads off. 30 seconds and a little twist they came right off. I was trying to be safe and not damage any heads with the heat gun, stepped up a touch with butane, but sometimes a sledgehammer is the right tool. Using MyGolfSpy mobile app
