    It really is saying something. The 400 is very good. But it doesn’t have s thing over this for me. Additional note: Our Superintendent saw me on the course today came up to talk. I told him ti take a swing with it. Cold out of his cart in his boots and no warmups. He hit a drive 20 yards past where he normally is on that hole. He just looked at me and said “Holy MF’er, what the hell is this thing?” He couldn’t believe it and followed me to the next hole. Same thing. Two more just as long. We’ll see if he places an order tomorrow. Ha Bridgestone Tour B JGR Driver and HF2 irons Pre Release Testing

    Alright, a few photos as promised! Also included my shots on Golf Channel (sorry the quality is bad), and my tee shot and birdie putt on 7. Hopefully the vids upload correctly. 0ca45eee-2765-471a-8209-72d36b587a17.mp4 fdf4e175-1720-467e-b2e9-6fa947293295.mp4 IMG_0634.TRIM-1.MOV IMG_0636.TRIM-2.MOV

    I actually submitted a design for this 2nd season. I have no idea what the criteria were for choosing the 16, but I'm sure my video lacked flair or something. Maybe I'm biased towards myself, but I think the design I had was sound, and I'm praying it doesn't somehow get "influenced" into these finalists. (i'm sure they can do whatever they want with my submission). That's all I'll say for now, as I'm already working on next year's plan, if there's a chance they have a season 3. I think the Roswell has the greatest chance to make it, provided the crown can be strong enough to push enough weight below. The Inifinty channel is gimmicky but that's what will pull people in if it can be made to be effective. The bone tissue top design thing is going to be interesting. I'm waiting for the returning guy to get cut. I'm stoked for his drive, but he seems to be a bit too sure of himself and his design. I mean, you have to convince yourself your design is amazing, but it seems like he's not taking criticism and advice well.

    Like @pulledabill, I only keep the memorable ones, which are mostly played while traveling - Hawaii, Mexico, Outer Banks, Myrtle Beach, etc. I can't find the card for when I played in Luxembourg this spring, but I still have the receipt.

    I do, basically for a memory "refresher" in the future I guess of different places my wife and I have traveled to and played at together.

    a hole out from a decent distance. (never had an ACE but I'm sure that tops anything) a holed put from a distance of 10' or more or a wild break landing on the green from a distance (100 yds or more) a blistered drive playing golf PERIOD!

    In my prior life, I was a Hotel General Manager at a relatively small hotel 170 rooms. So I was involved in hiring and orientation for almost all employees. I would typically walk the new employee around and introduce them to all the department heads and managers. One day after doing so, one of m managers came to me and said, "Don't bother introducing me to a new employee until after their first week, I hate learning someone's name only to hear they quit two days later" LOL She was only half joking

    This thread hasn't seen the light of day for a while, so it's time to bump it.... Another Update: I tweaked my back about three weeks ago, which sucked and put a serious damper on my golf activities - I have only played 45 holes in that time. At any rate, my understanding is we will not end up with the normal stage 2 and some of us had already graded in our initial posts, based on first impressions and 3 weeks with the clubs. I am currently working on a formal update to put a bow on this "super-secret" test, but here are my current thoughts on these woods. DRIVER: I'm not sold on it just yet. While I have hit a few really nice shots with it (including driving the green on a ~250 yard par 4 at @MattF's yearly family outing), I am almost as long with the 3W and more consistent. As I mentioned earlier, I'm wondering if it is not, at least partially, a shaft issue. The club is designed to be high launch, which I generally don't need, so if I were to get a lower launch shaft, would this work better for me? Perhaps.... 3W: Now that I have quite a few more swings with this club, I am liking it more and more. I have had to adjust my grip a bit weaker compared to my old Callaway, presumably due to the draw bias (?). I'm only 5 - 10 yards shorter than the driver with this club and more accurate, so right now I see no need to pull the driver. 3H & 4H: These have been the star of the show out of all the woods. I am continually amazed at the distance and accuracy I am seeing from these clubs. Again, at @MattF's outing, there is another very short par 4 with a sharp dogleg right that was playing around 200 yards uphill. If you can't accurately hit a hard fade, you lay up about 150 yards off the tee. I told Matt I was going to pull the 4H and slice it around the bend. I hit it a bit thin and low, but it curved perfectly and we were on the fringe in 1. (Aside: this was a scramble and we couldn't two putt with 8 shots at it :() There is nothing in my old bag that would have allowed me to even attempt that shot. If the dogleg were the other direction, I don't even try - drawing the ball only happens by accident. I'm hoping Matt, Rob, and MGoBlue are able to provide some updates, too!

    I've been reading the site for a while now and would browse the boards on occasion. I've played golf casually since late high school, but was always more of getting out and drinking beers than trying to improve. A couple years ago I joined a country club and started taking the game more seriously. Due to having a young family and busy job I don't get out nearly as much as I'd like. My 24 handicap reflects this but I'm trying to find more ways to improve without having to leave my family for hours during the week. I'd say at this point I'm completely obsessed with the game. Everything from course architecture, to the tour, to equipment. My wife would quickly tell you that I spend way too much time reading about and watching golf so am always interested in conversation and learning more. I'm in Bowling Green KY so if anyone ever wants to get out and play I'm always game. (pending approval from the wife)

    I am not sure it is actually possibly to work more hours in a week than I have been doing the last two months. It comes and it goes for me, but 10 more years of this and I should be able to move onto a second career with a lot less stress.

    This might really be a space in the bag where real wood woods can excel. A heavy wood head can help you stay down whether through the rough or fairway. Modern fairway woods and hybrids are just stainless steel. Pretty much no different than the early small head metalwoods of the 1980’s. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Mine is probably late 1950’s, pre-Ginty. Part of a 1,2,3,4 set. I don’t have the 2 wood in the bag though. Those Ginty’s look like they would be great out of the rough but might be a bit tough from tight lies. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    I played the Gold and Emerald courses many years ago - at that time, Emerald was the more highly rated, iirc. I really enjoyed both, though.

    I've had a couple fun one's. Either last season or the one before, I had a solid round going with a birdie, a couple pars, and a few bogies until I went +5 on #11. This season while playing a nearby muni, I went +3 on #2 and -2 on #3! Golf is just one of those games... Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

    I was on the range the other week hitting one of my Mac Custom 5 woods. THis kid beside me got curious and real politely asked me "Sir when did they start making hybrids out of wood?" He was sincere. I had to explain that it was not a hybrid but a real fairway wood back when woods were actually woods. As you know all of those Mac fairways are tiny even in it's day. Actually his new Callaway hybrid was a tad larger than my 5 wood. I told him if he was interested he could hit one. He really did not want to. I told him if he ever wanted to go to persimmon please see me. We talked and I know his Dad. I bet $20 I will know what his Dad will tell him. "Ole Stuey is ok but he is tied too much to the past with those outdated antiques" Funny thing is I am some 25 years older than his Dad and can beat him straight up from any tee using my antique equipment and him moderns. A lot of the regulars around my club will tell you tongue in cheek that I am "touched in the head" because I am always hitting those antique blades and wooden woods

    I am seriously considering Hulu with live TV, looks like a great deal. Anyone have any good or bad experiences with it? Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

    I definitely would consider it. I really enjoy watching women because it is so much easier for me to relate to their golf journey. The PGA men provide me little in the way of lessons learned. Don’t get me wrong, they are super skilled. Still their skill is readily overshadowed by their ability to bang it so far. The ladies are all distance, direction and trajectory. Those things I can truly relate too. I’ve been to every day of the masters week and although the environment is electric the crowds can certainly detract from ones ability to absorb the masters experience. If I go, I’ll volunteer to work rather than buying a ticket. All golf tournaments rely heavily on volunteerism. It’s a win win if selected for they get an able body and I get an incredible experience. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

    I played okay today on the local exec course - 3,120 yds. The putter was on fire! I also hit the driver okay on the few holes it was needed. The one hole that I hit the 3 wood off the tee didn’t go so well. But I was able to finally hit my 4 hybrid off the tee. The 3 hybrid is still a work in progress. At the range I nail it now, which wasn’t true a month ago. But hitting from dead center of the fairway today on a perfect lie I managed to shank it right into the rough - twice. So back in the bag for a while. I hit several good approach shots with various irons, so that is encouraging. And I got out of trouble fairly well today too. Only 2 blowup holes in 18 is an improvement. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    I would dream of hitting out of rough like that. Most of the time here we can barely see the ball.
