  6. ... Frustrating day on the course. Greens were running slower than normal today and I took forever to adjust. I had 3 birdie putts on the front 9 of 8 feet or less and left every one an inch or shorter with one sitting on the lip and my pards made me wait to see if it would drop but it did not. One is excusable and even 2 can be tolerated but leaving 3 putts within 1 inch and dead in the hole is just a silly mental error. I did it one more time on the back, although it would not have fallen as it was outside the cup and then I finally ran several a few feet passed the hole, which was much bett

  9. Yep that is the way you disinguage the drive tracks-- I had figured it out and Roger confirmed it--- As far as handling and storing it does just fine--- Like I told Roger It could fit in the trunk of my S-500 easily with a staff bag if I did not have so much stuff in there already but that is my fault. But it does fit in the back seat fine. As far as the weight it is a sturdy built unit and a little heavy but did not strain my back too bad handling it. LOL talking about a race I already have one lined up with an old Vet who lives in the park who rides a Rascal Scooter but he insisted I have to

  10. TESTERS ANNOUNCED! As one who's played Nippon Modus shafts in my last two sets of irons, I have to say I'm absolutely intrigued by this test and I'll be following along eagerly with our reviewers. The four forum members who'll be putting this new premium driver shaft from Nippon in their big sticks are: @MrBandit @morningteesheet @RollingGreens @03trdblack A couple of returning reviewers and a couple who've never reviewed. We're always looking to add fresh reviewers; here's a reminder of how to increase your chances of being chosen for future reviews!

  12. Terrible golf continues; couldn’t hit my irons reliably. Golf is becoming pretty frustrating. Plus pollen season is in full swing so I spent most of the round sneezing and congested; yes I took allergy medicine before the round, so I am going to try and blame it in that.

  13. - 42 (+6) - 2/7 FIR - 3/9 GIR - 16 Putts (1 3-putt, 5 2-putts, 3 1-putts) First full nine of the year at my home course. I was all over the place today, but made good club choices so that my bad shots didn't penalize me too much. L.A.B. was great. The 3-putt was on No. 9 after hitting my approach just a hair too far and having a monster of a putt. Bad way to end a round but my putting was solid. Short game was pretty good, too, but had a chip that I hit just a touch too far on No. 8 that cost me a stroke. Overall, I was one bad luck bounce, one blocked iron off the tee an

  16. So this is turning into as much a bag test as it is an electric push cart test! Haven't had a chance to test the Easilock function but will be on the range tonight and will just mount the bag to the cart for testing purposes. Moved my entire bag over and found a few differences from my Datrek Light II bag. The valuables pockets are deeper so more space for bigger phones. I have a Note 20 Ultra so fairly large phone that I will test the fit. I use my phone for the Grint during rounds so not that it would stay in there. The cooler pocket is really big. I can fit a 6 pack of seltzer water with ro

  18. Going to highlight just one part of my game from my round today. Something happened that I expect will never happen ever again. I made 4 one-putts that were greater than 20 feet in length, including an uphill breaking 50 foot putt. I know there is some luck involved with making long putts, but 4 of them in one round, I must have been doing something good. I insist that the new putter/grip combo helped. I know equipment doesn't turn a person that is a bad putter into a good one, but I would say that this putter is a unique setup that I had never tried before. Because of my height, wrist to

  20. First off let me start this story by saying I'm an idiot. Now that that's off my chest let's begin. Back in 2018 I was part of the original MGS SuperSpeed review. At the completion of the protocols I saw my baseline speed jump from about 104mph to a peak of 111mph. This was measured on the slightly juiced SwingSpeed Radar that was usually 3-5mph faster that better tracking devices. I admittedly slacked off with the program shortly after posting my final review but picked it back up each winter once the snow started falling here in Wisconsin. This particular winter I really focused on

  23. My wife is going to kill me. I’m excited to share my bag next week when everything is here but I had to make a change with my SIM 3. The Diamana shaft just feels like a wet noodle. I met up with a friend and did some swings and confirmed what I really wanted. I just ordered a Ventus Blue 7-X from Peoples golf...after some reading and comparisons it was a no brainer to go with them. The sad part about the Diamana was it felt so good but it was all over the place for me on the course. 60* TW MG2 arrives next week and after that I’ll snap some pics for the 2021 bag. Maybe the

  25. Took the M5 out for a spin today (lol sounds like I am talking about a certain German performance sedan) to test the battery life. Last time the battery was charged was last week after my second round. Battery has been sitting disconnected since then. Plugged it in today when setting up the cart and at first the battery indicator showed full. Then immediately dropped down to about 75% but still green. 35 minutes in, the indicator had not changed. It went down to 50% and yellow then bounced back up to green for bit. I would say about 1 hour into the round, the indicator stayed at 50% and yellow

  26. ... In honor of Hideki Matsuyama winning the Masters, I played my Srixon Z Forged MB's today and shot a 72 with 3 birdies and 3 bogies. As many of you know I am a big fan of playing the most forgiving irons you can effectively play and for me, Z Forged ain't them. I would guess there were at least 3 or 4 shots that most likely made a difference in my score, but specifically 2 I can relate. There is a 477 yd par 5 dogleg left that is uphill off the tee and has a huge bunker guarding the corner that I cannot carry from my normal tees. But they are giving that tee box a rest and have the Silvers

  27. I had a solid round last evening, 14 pars, 1 bird, 2 bogeys and a double for a 75. The lost shots were solid hits with yardage mistakes rather than bad mis-hits so I didn't feel too bad about those. 32 putts on the still recovering bumpy greens as I finally was hitting the ball hard enough to get to the hole. It played shorter as I didn't play from the tips since the league starts this week and I wanted to get my clubs down from the white tees. Only 4 drivers on the front and quite a few wedges into the greens.

  28. What an odd day!! Nice, sunny and 78º this morning. I hit some nice drives that were followed up on the next hole by poor drives... wtf! On the front nine I shot 41 (+4) that consisted of two doubles a bogey and a birdie. One double came after a great drive followed by a worm burner second shot. Problem is, there's this pond... . Other double came on the par 3 #8 hole. Remember the joke about the clubhouse asking over the loudspeaker for the gentleman on the Ladies tee to please move back to the men's tee?? Yup! Topped my tee ball to the Forward tee!! . The good news

  29. First round in two weeks since I stunk it up with [mention]cnosil [/mention]Drove an hour each way to play Dogwood Trace and have to say for $40 it was not too bad. Really neat layout with some shorter par 4’s, long par 3s and a few reachable par 5’s. Conditions were not too bad and gave me a chance to hit the new driver on the course. Ended at 3 over 75 with some spotty tee balls on the front nine. Actually putted really well for a change and glad to have the Toulon back in the bag. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

Tee game was pretty solid and other than not being able to hit a green irons weren’t too bad. Couldn’t get any putts to drop on Sandy greens. finished with a 86 on a course that’s pretty getable

  34. ... It has been great to get back to feeling confident with my swing on the golf course. Had a very nice start to my round today with winds about calm to about 5 mph and I had 4 birdies with 1 bogie. Then the wind picked up quickly on #9 to about 20+mph and things got difficult as it was a swirling hard to judge wind. It's one thing to start with those kinds of winds an another to be playing well and have it suddenly appear after 8 holes. At least that is my excuse.

  38. Well I thought my energy level was fully back after shot #2 but after hitting the range before my round proved that I was a tad lethargic. But miracles can happen so my mind said let's play. Well I seemed to be much more fluid and just used a lot of momentum instead of trying to power things as I usually do. First hole long drive for me leaving a PW into the green. Typically an 8 iron for reference. Easy GIR and a two putt for par. Second hole (my nemesis hole) 5 wood to the center of the fairway and center to the dog leg left. 5 hybrid onto the blind green (due to elevation). I nev

  39. Spring golf is weird, let's start with that. With swirling winds and temps fighting to stay above 50, I went out this afternoon. Apparently I am even worse of a wind player than I thought, very high ball hitter. The courses greens were recovering from punching, they were slow and almost no break. Front 9 I shot 38, and only hit one green! 11 putts and 7/8 fairways. I wasn't hitting my irons bad, or even losing distance in the cool weather. It just seemed like every hole, I misjudged something or the wind changed after I set up. The first 4 holes on the back were the same, though I finally got

My greens could have been higher had the wind not been inconsistent. More than once the wind either died when I hit or gusted mid flight. I hit my irons on a string which was very satisfying. My only birdie was a left breaking 40+ footer that was luck. I will say that th

  42. Okay, I'll bite. Everyone has opinions on this and that is fine. You may not like armlock, but it isn't cheating and you may want to make it illegal. The rules are about anchoring the end of the club to a pivot point (belly, chest). In those strokes the putter rotated around that anchor point. In armlock the pivot point is the shoulder. The end of the clubs isn't anchored using the definition of the tour. Since anchor means to secure firmly in position we should just make putting one handed. By using two hands you are anchoring the putter.

A guy pulls a Porche into the driveway on the left as the announcer says "The man who lives in the house on the left drives an expensive sports car" and then a guy pulls a VW Beetle into the driveway on the right and the announcer continues with "and the man who lives in the house on the right ... fixes them."

I was planning on doing a rundown of every hole in the front, but the battery died in the sixth. I'm hoping to film some really bad course vlogs for my entertainment because it's just fun to film and edit. Here's a snippet from Sunday, the sound isn't the greatest because it was windy.

  48. I think you have to be analytical to a fairly significant level. Some of the analysis is just done subconsciously or not thought about as being analytical. When you practice or warm up you are analyzing how well you are hitting the ball and trying to decide if you need to make a change. You pushed your last couple of shots what do you do? Your hitting it off the toe, or fat, or thin, do you do anything? Your typical draw is now a fade or a big hook? Are you going to play that ok the course. You are standing on the first tee, where are you aiming? The ball is above your feet do you

  49. Haha yes on steep side hills you still have to be careful. I think the unit is a little more stable than a standard push cart but with all the weight at the top, it is still top heavy so it can topple over. I had a few instances going across a hill where the unit started to tip but I managed to keep it right by holding on to the handle bars. Around water and bridges I just keep the speed low for better control. At the lowest speed it is really crawling along. At the highest you would be sprinting the entire round. I haven't cranked it up to 9...yet...though I am sure for testing purposes our m
