    Here’s my round from earlier. Driving was obviously great and chipping was about my normal. Putting was terrible, and the sand was only one shot in the sand, one shot to get out and 2 putt. Don’t know why the sand handicap is so much. Approach stat is pretty accurate for today’s round, missed a lot short due to hitting them heavy. That 2 hours on the range yesterday was mainly with driver to get it dialed in, that seemed to work nice. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

    Played a round today at a beautiful course. Metamora Golf & Country Club. Greens were in the best shape of any course I’ve played in Michigan this year. Very firm and fast. Really happy with my front 9. Although a triple bogey on 9 hurt. Starting the back 9 with a triple bogey wasn’t great either. Three putting 5 times hurt. There is plenty of opportunity to go lower with less mental errors. The F9’s are not an issue at all. If you make the right decisions and take a relatively decent swing, the results are fantastic. I am really impressed with the shots that I’ve been able to execute with these clubs. Cannot wait for more time on the course, and maybe some time practicing to find out how low I can go.

    That's why I'm excited for Link! Supposedly, it will have a button on it like the one on your phone, that you can press to mark the pin placement. Stand by the pin, press the button, go mark your ball! Easyyyyyyy.

    It's hard to get in the habit of doing that with Arccos, especially if you're concerned about holding a group up. Now I try to walk up to the flag, hold my phone up to it, and press mark at current location. I probably look like an idiot doing it, but it works! Sent from my SM-G955U using MyGolfSpy mobile app

    I try to remember to move the pins on Arccos, but I forget a lot. Then when I get home I can’t remember where the hole was. Need to do a better job of that. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

    I was issued a challenge today that I'd be curious on passing onto you guys. Would any of you consider leaving all of your woods at home and playing a full 18 with irons, wedges, and putter only? I know it's a full bag test, but I'd be curious on truly putting these irons through their paces.

    I cracked it!! Shot an 88 today at Da Club...with 42 putts. Hit some very good, some good and some bad but I was just humming along playing my game. The driver is coming along. I changed the setting to upright and it seems, at this stage, to be what I needed. Longest drive was 257 and shortest (off the heel) was 193. All in all, I'm happy.

    There may be a happy ending to this story. A week later, I put a battery back in the drone, and it powered up. Connected it to my phone, and the wifi still works. Transferred over the video and photos on the drone without issue. Still haven't flown it yet; the phone that connects to it needs to be charged back up. But even for the drone to power back up after going for a full submersion in a lake is pretty impressive.

    I spent my Friday lunch range bucket working on visualizing driving a nail down my target line. Thin is my major miss, due to my upper body working forward as I start the downswing. If I focus on driving the nail, my upper body stays back and it also helps eliminate early extension. I hit some of the crispest iron shots of my life today. Always feels so good to pure an iron. I am especially pleased because the range had standing water in spots and anything mishit just a bit was punished with the soggy ground. Combined with ensuring my back elbow stayed connected to my turn, I saw club head speeds on my 6 and 8 irons reach tour average based on that Trackman chart that floats around. That's been one of my goals for this year. My Swing Caddie even showed 160 carry with my 8 iron, which is a monster shot for me. (Doing this on the course is a whole 'nother ballgame...) Next thing to work on is allowing myself to complete a full back swing with the driver. I cut myself short, chop over-the-top and lose a lot of club head speed in additional to hitting high weak fades/slices when I'm really off. For example, on 10-plus driver swings today I only hit 99 MPH once. In contrast, my 6 iron hit 92 MPH on a few swings. Definitely something that needs correcting. "If you are going to hit it into trouble, at least do it with authority." I read this quote today in the Slicefixer guide I downloaded a long, long time ago. It's a really salient point that I need to focus on more often. Also spent some time on the putting green as my putting has been really poor lately. Really focused on loosening my grip and removing the tension from my hands, arms and shoulders. Seemed to help a lot with hitting the center of the face. We'll see how it translates to the course, if the rain stops, this weekend.

    A tale of two nines again. Had 4 birdies and 2 bad bogey's today on the front for a 34. Drove a par 4 and left the putt just right of the hole. Aerated greens were bumpy. 5/9 greens. Then the back nine was just poor mental mistake after poor mental mistake. Shot 40 with no birdies and that was a miracle. I could have used Speith's caddie to slap me around! [emoji38] 4/9 greens. 74 for the day. Hope tomorrow is a better story. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk

    Check Arccos for that hole, it judges you based on how close to the hole you got it from the bunker. If the first putt you took after that bunker shot was from like 60' you'll see a big number. Also check the pin positions. This is, of course, if you really care about it giving you accurate breakdowns. Sent from my Pixel 3 using MyGolfSpy mobile app

    Walked a bunch of holes at my home course, trying to work out a swing fault. I was hitting it so good for the last several weeks, and then after carding a 32 on the front a few days ago, I started spraying shots. Couldn’t stop. Got progressively worse. Lurching with the shoulders, two way miss, no accuracy or confidence. I start doing well, get too confident, start swinging hard, and get all out of sync. Tough to work out, but I made some progress with some old drills and swing keys. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Practiced some chipping with LW, SW, and 8 iron, then spent a few moments striking full 9 irons and 6 irons. Been having an issue of hitting short irons hard right and working thru ensuring that the path is more in to out and less over the top/out to in. With longer irons, I haven't been aggressively rotating forearms through impact and hitting fades...trying to turn them over a bit better, as well as working on better path.

    Good deal! I'm sure I speak for the other guys in the group by saying I'm about as excited as waiting for my wife to give birth to my 2 kids. I've been playing minimally offset forged player style CB's for the past 3 years (Maltby DBM's). Not quite Cobra King forged small, but MP SC-18 ish size. I'm hoping that these won't be a step in the wrong direction but my premise with this testing is to be the guy who uses player irons, knows there might be easier clubs to hit that might definitely help my game, but refuses to go to GI because of nothing but stinky pride .. If I can break 80 with them, then it will be a successful outcome. Additionally I think the VT's are about 2-3° stronger lofts. You wouldn't happen to have any reference between these and any other clubs would you! I.e. Titleist T-MBs or Ping i500s, etc? After this post I promise to stop with the questions[emoji2957] the more I practice, the luckier I seem to get..

    It's funny, but for a brief period of time Pinnacle's, like Molitor, were the rage. I remember playing with my Dad and his foursome buddies in the 70's and they all played these balls.

    I always try to think of a good description of a pure hit, but sometimes it’s as if I didn’t even hit a ball it’s so soft. I’m hitting proV’s. It really is something else. I came close to getting a new set of the 18’s a few months ago, they are the real deal.

    I was able to get in a full round today with the Nitro's. Shot 51/46 at Waterville Golf Course. Couldn't putt if my life depended on it, I ended up with 44 for the round with more 3 putts than I want to talk about. I felt like pulling a Patrick Reed with my putter. Overall, the Nitro's weren't horrible on full shots. I hit my first tee shot of the day and realized I forgot to turn Arccos on, so I turned it on teed up another ball and proceeded to hit a shot off the bottom of the clubhead that rattled my hands. They were LOUD off the Epic Flash, felt decent off the irons and wedges, and a bit tinny on putts. I wouldn't game them, but they weren't horrible. For your consideration in the competition, I offer up a longest drive of 256, a closest to the pin of 13 feet (measured by Arccos), I actually paced it off 11 1/2 paces of a 9 1/2 golf shoe, and a back nine of 46 with a 20.3 Arccos handicap. I play from the whites on this course. Thank you for getting this together, it really makes you appreciate not hitting these rocks on a regular basis. My ears are still ringing, but I'm thankful that they didn't cave the face of my driver in. Sent from my SM-G955U using MyGolfSpy mobile app

    Went to last nights game. First four innings were sloppy and slow - each team was charged with an error but there were several marginal plays. Nice to see Mike Trout for sure. And then some baseball broke out. The beauty of this game is that if you can just keep hitting you don’t loose your turn. The Rays scored 5 in the 6th and 4 in the seventh batting around both times. Penny enjoyed KK’s pinch hit single - I’m an Avisail Garcia guy - his hit tied the game. Her buffalo chicken Mac and Cheese looked amazing. :) Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

    Made a few changes to the bag. Irons are JPX 919 tour 3-PW with project x 6.5s and wedges are mizuno s18 50.07 54.12 and 58.08 also thinking of swapping out the stock stiff shaft in the honma driver for an Aldila rogue silver 70x. Almost forgot too that I’ve changed putters. I now have the Cleveland smart square at 34” in the bag. It’s stupid easy to align. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

    Went to the range yesterday with a guy from work. He hasn’t played in years. But I inspired him to take it up again, along with 2 other people over the past few years. Anyways. I have been struggling with the driver for 2 years. Something clicked yesterday, I ended up hitting a whole bucket, and I actually enjoyed hitting the thing, because they were going where I told them too. Weird. Next time I go I won’t remember any of it.

    They make more lofted fairway woods. Heavenwood is 20*, get a 9 or 11 wood instead of a hybrid. Some people just hit fairway woods better than hybrids.

    I did another driver-heavy range session last evening in the 90* heat that just about wore me out. After my lousy performance last Sunday, I kept wondering why I had such an awful day driving and it dawned on me that I had yet again regressed my grip back to weak and I should-a have known better. So I worked on that and also keeping the face closed which is a struggle for me since my left wrist has limited function. Saw a new video by one of my favorites and it inspired me to give this drill a try... Man what a difference! Of 20 recorded shots on my ES 12, I averaged a phenomenal 242.6 calculated total distance!! Additionally the slice & "power-fades" were nowhere to be seen and that for me is a rare event for sure. If I do the right thing with my wrists, I can actually feel the club release as is passes through the ball and my arms feel as if they are being stretched. It feels really powerful and I just gotta figure out how to get that feeling to the course and keep it there.

    Practiced everything today........and everything was really good. Started with 70yd pitches - all good 6 irons all struck well with slight draw 4w's struck well with slight draw (no driver as waiting on new one coming) chipping excellent, no fats or thins (never thought I'd ever say that) Putting in the sweetspot and holed loads over 40 feet and 8 footers all in the middle (all on a putting green) Confidence is high but will it transfer to the course under pressure? time will tell, no games arranged until a week on Saturday so will just keep practicing.

    Hit a few 7 irons, and christened the new (2nd hand) 5 wood. I think I'm going to be pretty happy with the Cobra F8 fairways. I definitely need to work on my core, as well as my shoulder. Posture is decidedly ugly, not far off a pretzel at the moment

    I have found that embracing variability in practice helps to keep the whole game sharp. If I go to the range with the express purpose of working on say my driver or wedges, and practice mostly or only those clubs, the other parts of my game will suffer. (Note: I'm talking about maintinence and general game improvement, not fixing a specific mechanical problem--which is a separate issue.) I have a set warm up that I do whether I am getting ready for a round or getting ready for a range session. The first part involves drills and exercises in a specific order that emphasize balance, tension and tempo. The second part goes over the fundamentals--grip, posture, alignment, ball position. All told, I hit 19 balls in the warm up. Here is the part that applies to the topic at hand: Even when doing the same dill three times, I will vary the club. I will do the first drill with say a driver, 8 iron and sand wedge. The next drill I will do three times, using a long iron, gap wedge and 8 iron. Once warmed up, I move on to general practice. I have a number of skill building drills/games that I do at the range, which vary each time. I choose which to do before I get to the range. In deciding the order to go through the games, I try to mix things up. I don't want to do three drills in row that involve hitting full shots. I'll go full shot drill to chipping drill to a variable distance drill. A sample range session would go something like this: Game 1. "Short, medium, long." I will do sets of three balls. I will pick a target, say the 100 yard marker. I'll grab a club that I can hit over the target and hit the first ball 75 yards, the second 120 and the third to the marker. I change clubs and targets and repeat. I may hit driver 200, 150 and 250 and then 8-iron 100, 125 and 150. Game 2. "Draw, fade, straight." I'll pick a target and hit the same club to the target, hitting a draw, a fade and then straight. Then change clubs and targets and repeat. Game 2 involved a lot of full swings, so my next games would vary from full swings. Game 3. One target, three clubs. Pick a target, hit to the target using three different clubs, at least two clubs apart. So I could use 9, 7 and 5 irons. Game 4. High, medium and low pitches. Game 5. Toe, heel center. Hit sets of three balls, first shot on the toe, second on the heel, third in the sweet spot. Game 6. Chip with three different clubs. Same target, but hit lofted wedge, mid-iron and long iron chips. I will usually end any range session by playing a few holes from the course on the range. At my home range, I'm a bit limited on how much I can mix things up. I go to a range in Florida where there is a practice green about 30 yards from the practice tee, so I can incorporate putting into the mix. In general, I try to vary clubs as much as possible. If I do hit the same club, I rarely hit the same shot two times in a row. (I have a hard and fast rule to never, ever hit the same shot more than 3 times in a row.) I find varying practice engaging. I stay mentally focused the whole time. Frequently changing clubs and shots more closely approximates golf on the course and the time it takes to change clubs gives a breather on the range.

    In the midst of moving, so golfing has come at a premium the last two weeks. But I brought a few balls inside and have been working on my putting setup. Have been really pleasantly surprised with how my consistency has improved rolling it out, really looking forward to bringing it out on the course!

    I wish I could practice more . I am fortunate that I get to hit lots of balls as part of most wanted testing but I don;t get a lot of time to work on improving. Sam saw I was struggling and gave me a few pointers to work on. Spent about 20 minutes or so doing some mirror and position practice. Been struggling for too long and want to get my game back in shape. I know I can play better and am driven to try and and prove myself right.

    Picked up a brand new box of rocks for this upcoming weekend, Nitro's! Figured for under $6, these high quality golf balls would provide explosive distance, great feedback, and stellar performance on and around the green. I think they are on to something when it comes to eliminating unnecessary packaging and passing on their savings on to the consumer. Sent from my SM-G955U using MyGolfSpy mobile app

    I just bought the SZ about two weeks ago. Just like you said, I noticed ball speed gains and it was so forgiving on off center hits. I noticed that toe/heel strikes were a lot more manageable then with my XR16 Pro. I have said it before and I will say it again, it was not the best feeling driver I tried, that belongs to Titleist however ball speed, carry distance, dispersion all beat out every other driver out there.

    Split practice time 60/40 between short and long game. A large portion of the game is played with shorter clubs in your hands.

    I put 4 dots around the logo forming a crosshairs-type look. I prefer to use blue marker is the logo is all black, black marker if the number is red. I used to put an "M" on the other side, but I stopped so that I could plausbibly deny that a ball hit into a window/street/backyard is mine.
