  1. Well yesterday was a jam up good make that great day for me. Fellow Spy John Smalls showed up and we managed to get 16 holes in after his family obligations and me taking care of my little dog. this was the first time I had tried to play my own ball after my accident. I had been playing in the Dogfight some not hitting all of the shots. I did an all out effort and lasted 13 holes hitting at it sorta 90%. So I feel positive. John played good and can flat move the ball. We did not keep score and hit practice shots. I know he had one birdie and 2 other near misses on his original ball. Me I think

  4. And depending on the method of refinement even with topical one can check positive for THC on a drug test and for a truck driver that is a no no--- Since my recent injury I am more than likely going to give up driving a truck. I told the VA to shove it years ago. They want to dictate your life too much they wanted me to quit dipping and chewing.

  5. Thanks, you explained that really well. That's why I didn't want to disagree with you earlier. I know how much experience you have testing different clubs, and your understanding of what effects design has on them blows mine away. BTW I really appreciate that you take the time to reply to a lot of my posts and offer not only your opinion, but as much advice as you do.

  6. I am excited for my driver fitting tomorrow at Titleist Thursday. I joined the MGS forums in 2015. I have applied to be a tester a few times, but this is the first time I’ve been chosen. I only apply to test items in which I am genuinely interested and would consider purchasing. The Titleist TSi drivers fit that bill. I currently play a Big Bertha Fusion driver. 10.5 degrees, Mamiya Recoil 450 ES, F3 shaft. (56 grams). According to Mamiya, this is a mid to high launch shaft and the ES stands for “enhanced stability for more control and feel.” I am

  7. - 42/41 = 83 / 80 ESC (+18, Par 65) - 4/11 FIR - 2/18 GIR - 28 Putts (10 2-putts, 8 1-putts) New-to-me course, local muni that @ncwoz has trekked around a few times, I think. I was very surprised at the quality of course given the price ($16 to walk) and the length (~4,700 yards from the back tees). I just can't get out of my own way lately, it seems. Came to No. 9 +3 and playing well. Long 234-yard par 3 into a 14 MPH wind, hit a low screaming driver that landed in the greenside bunker. Proceeded to take three shots getting out of said bunker to 35 yards past the green, hit ba

  9. To be fair, I have not shaved in about 6 years, I do trim it often, as the wife has a "no werewolf" policy, but I have not seen my chin in years.

  11. Ordered the 11 iron for my new Honma irons to fill the gap between 10 and 54*. Had to go through Homna sales to get them to generate an invoice since you cannot order single irons online. Great service as they had the invoice generated in 24 hours and indicated it would take about a week.

I couldn't walk 18 without getting blisters on the back of my ankles/heels. Super disappointed as I was an Adidas guy back to the OG 360s. Take Dead Aim

  13. Alan South... oh bugger Can’t wait to follow along here Gentlemen. 2021 is going to be the year of the Driver for me, my current gamer and tee game in general needs improvement. It’s what is holding me back from some really low scores. Need some good real world results, frankly I’m sick of the YouTube video reviews... it’s just wash rinse repeat. Blah blah blah...

  18. In the same boat my wife encouraged growing a beard when we first got together, though not too long. Have not shaved since, which is about probably 7 years since I started growing it, keep it clean but has never fully come off. Almost scared to see what the chin looks like now it been so long.

  26. Not many applicants for the Ben Hogan long irons, hybrids and woods this time around, at least compared to the TSi drivers. I know that the hand availability and club selection are a turn off, but Hogan still awesome clubs, every now and then I still take out the old GCDs out for a round or two. I have no idea what year this are.

Wonder if that is contagious and infects other's quickly......................... made a deal on this and have it heading my way to see if it can kick my older SC Newport 2 Notchback out of the bag.............. at least I will have all the "off season" here to play around and practice with both of them, before making a final decision, so it won't be a hasty decision

  30. Sporadic /spəˈradik/ : occurring at irregular intervals or only in a few places; scattered or isolated. That sorta sums up my results when I try to let the "big dog" eat. Driver is one of those clubs I work on all season to try and perfect it and I get right where I want to be, then old man winter decides to drop by for a few months, and the process begins again. I envy those of you who to get golf year-round. The positive side is, each year has started off better than the last and I think the future is looking bright for the driver... or maybe that's just me being hopeful. Time will tell

  32. Testers Wanted (3) One of the ongoing debates, or maybe decisions among golfers is graphite or steel for iron shafts. It was long ago decided that graphite is the way to go for drivers, fairway woods and hybrids. But the use of steel in the iron category--maybe due to the name--who know, is still holding strong as the most common material used in most sets of irons on the market. With the ever increasing models of graphite and it's lighter weight benefits in the marketplace, steel has fought back with technology and new materials to offer some of the same benefits as steel--namely

  34. I should mention that C19 has changed somethings in my life. I used to go to the gym prior to C19 but when the gum opened up we didn’t want any part of it. When pools opened up we (mostly me) started going 3-4 times a week and doing pool exercises and walking. It has done wonders for my knees, no pain and my legs have strengthened a bit. So with the GELSYN every 6 months and the pool I should be good until I’m ready for elective surgery. We have 3 heated pools within minutes of the house so never a problem.

  37. My company had also advised against using CBD due to potential drug test failures. THC in the big brands probably isn’t an issue, but people seeking cheaper supply may result in getting lower quality product. It avoids the whole issue if you just companies/military/etc ban it across the board due to potential issues. My company had also advised against using CBD due to potential drug test failures.

  42. Having shown myself I can hit these pretty well/consistently, I chose to make the big leap and swapped out the G410's for the Cobra Forged Tours . On Monday, I played 18 holes at Madison Meadows in Ennis, MT. It was a brisk, cool, and breezy but pleasant fall day. In fact, with snow and 0F low temps in the forecast the rest of this week and through the weekend, they are closing the course for the season tomorrow . I shot an 89. The Good I really like the way these irons feel and especially the Recoil shafts. The silver/grey finish makes these appear to be steel at first glance

  43. I was very surprised at how well it's kept, and a nice little practice area too! Although short, it can be super narrow with deceptively tough greens. Especially at the price, I dig it!

  44. I forgot the most basic thing in my intro, my name is Derrick if you didn't know that already. I have been giving some thought to metrics that i plan to track as part of this test. Besides distance, I want to track playable shots off the tee. Maybe there is a better name or actual name for this, but what i mean is that fairways in regulation is not that important to me. A "playable" shot for me could be in the fairway or in the rough, but the second shot needs to have a chance to be either hit onto the green in regulation or a reasonable lay-up distance on a par 5. Anything that is OB, ha

  45. Don't wait too long. When I had my left knee replaced in 2014, the doc said that if I had waited any longer he would have had to do a bone graft. Much needed relief; glad I did it.

  47. Short statement, I haven’t had a Driver I really liked since a Ping i20 I got 2nd hand as a throw in in a trade years ago. The i20 has an aftermarket Mitsubishi shaft that I loved. The head cracked and that was that. Now, I’m “wishing and hoping” (little plagiarism) that the Titleist TSi2 may be the perfect replacement, maybe. I did have a chance to hit this club the other day (more on that later) and with correct shaft it may be the one.

  49. I don't think this is the case at all Coincidental note. I met with a company rep today that its ball is one of the "Big Boys" He came into my office literally an hour or so after I read the report. We talked about the results and his companies results in the test. And he thinks the Z Star is a very good ball and is interested to see how it fairs. But he brought up a very good point. The average Joe consumer that buys golf balls will never see or hear about this report or any of the Ball Lab reports. They aren't on forums. And those of us that are on the forums and read
