  1. Tuesday was the day.... it was it. I took a vacation day went to a course out in the country to enjoy the fall colors and was playing a leisurely round by myself. Started bogey then went 6 straight pars.... I was 3 over after 12 (3 bogies/9 pars-I can't make a birdie to save my life but that's another story) Thinking that I have a really good chance to do the break-80 thing. Got to 13 and errrrhhhh...backed up.... shoot... there goes my rhythm.... I can still do this I tell myself.... relax. bogey-par-bogey-par-bogey.... dammit.... 6 over. just need a bogey or better

  6. So, I asked my wife when she started keeping scorecards. I never did. She pulls out 2 boxes of scorecards dating back to 2004 which was the year we started living together. The first one was our trip to Orlando where we played in a tournament at Grande Pines, then we played at Shingle Creek and ChampionsGate. Every year since then we would go on a week long business trip in July, and a two week trip in January or February. We travel to play golf so we have a lot of scorecards! In October 2015 I retired and we joined our current club for 2016. She has every scorecard for rounds that we p

  7. At the tail end of a 16 hour day today I got an email for a golf invite to Trump Westchester on Friday. My first thought was to say no due to work commitments and then well I sent my admin an email and let her know I was taking Friday off. Haven’t hit a ball in over two weeks but it is one of my favorite tracks so why not? Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

  11. I agree. Something should be done. @Undershooter30 and I talked about it and we've found new managers for those teams. Everyone please welcome @mpatrickriley and @GeekingGolf to the league. They've agreed to fill the lineups every week and are allowed to make moves and win games just like normal owners.

  12. Most of us enjoy watching the Class of 2011 on the pro tour. I have had the opportunity to watch the future classes of golfers on a much lower level, but never the less, more enjoyable on a personal level. A close friend of mine has a grandchild that is the number 3 player on his high school team as a freshman. A year of so ago, my friend and I were playing golf and he noticed some improvement in my game and asked how he heck did that happen. I told him that I was taking lessons from a local PGA teaching pro. He then asked me to see if the pro would be willing to work with a youngst

  13. *raises hand while being a slight bit ashamed* I have a large tote with all of my scorecards. Over 30 courses and scores from 73-116. 116 was my first 18 hole round. They also serve as stat trackers. I keep track of FIR, GIR, and putts. It has been really neat to see my progress from early scorecards to more recent ones.

  15. Played a short 9-hole course I hadn't played in a long time. Only had my practice wedges and an old putter with me as I was originally headed to a short Par 3 but got re-routed due to construction. This is a pretty short course, too .. just looked it up and it's only 1930 yds .. so with a PW as my longest club figured it would be good practice. And it was. Generally kept the ball moving towards the green and, despite a lot of very thin grass and mud, chipped/pitched onto the greens well enough. Think I made more bogies today - which for me is good - than any other round so far, so I gues

  16. 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 HF

  17. Okay, it's time for a bit of an update on these irons. There were two particularly important questions people had with these irons. 1) How well would the black finish last 2) Could we really believe Hogan that the long-irons are easy to hit high? So, let's give you a quick mid-term. Here's my pitching wedge, it's hit probably a little over 400 shots by this point. This is it immediately after tonight's practice session. And here's that same club after a quick spit and wipe down. It still looks almost like new so far Impressive to me, so far and

  22. Don't feel bad! I reached 101 last Sunday; only time since I started. I just finished my last session of Week 2 today. Not a whole lot of improvement, but going back to day 1, the trend is a slight gain across the board. About what I would expect. That's why it's a 72 week program!!! Here are my maximums at the end of Week 2. Light Medium Heavy

  23. oh I feel your pain! 3 times this year I thought I was going to break through the seemingly impenetrable wall of 80 only to hit it square on the head. The killer is when you find yourself looking back at the dozen or so missed opportunities throughout the round. Breaking 80 is one of my 2018 golf goals.. have less than 3 months to catch that unicorn!

  24. I've welcomed a lot of people and I felt like I was doing it just to get more posts and hit higher numbers. I felt like I was not being original or really welcoming. Also I noticed that no matter how many I welcomed and said stick around to not many did so I gave up. I didn't want to just keep saying welcome for numbers and then nothing after that and their test entry. Now the ones I welcomed and stayed around made me want to keep doing so but that was less than 10%. I also noticed that there were a lot of copy and paste welcomes when I tried to type something different as much as I could. So

  26. I sort of agree with you and have gone through phases where I welcome the new comers or get a bit irritated when the mobile feed gets filled up with responses to the intros. For me, the responses to my intro had no bearing on whether I stuck around or not. It was the content in other areas the made me want to stay and learn. For giggles, I found my intro thread and re-read the 12 responses - there was nothing earth-shattering that made me stick around. I believe it is important to actually read the intros and respond to something that interests you, but not necessarily the copy/paste repl

  28. I understand this mindset and dislike it at the exact same time. It makes sense to not want to waste brain power or the time being introduced to someone who you may never see again or who is just trying to “win” something. However, for a new person, showing them the welcoming community and culture that has been established at MGS is important. It’s why I stuck around and am trying to provide value. I was welcomed with open arms and no judgement and want to show that to others as well. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

  31. Just wanted to give you guys some info on how the training is going. I did a session Tuesday night and I'm seeing an improvement, especially left handed. There's still a bit of a gap between hands, but the left side is getting closer in some drills to my starting SS of 89mph. I'm a little flustered that I'm having difficulties reaching 100, especially with my lightest club on the first swings. I have to remind myself that I'm doing these after working all day and most of the gas is out of the tank. I'm hoping to get in another session Thursday if the rain holds off and play Saturday. I pro

  35. 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 b

  37. I know and hate that hole at Connaught! Can't ever seem to get the tee shot right, and every time I have played there, that hole has always been into the wind. Other than that, I really like everyone's stage 1 reviews and I'm looking forward to the stage 2's. I just bought a set of these i500s and so far I'm very happy. Can't wait to see the changes between the i500s and my old set compare to what others are seeing in their testing!

  38. Now that I put the Stan Thompson’s in my bag I’m having even better results. I’m not sure the loft but the 4-wood is backweighted with lead and the ball gets way up in the air. 215 yards with a nice steep landing that holds the green. Better than any hybrid I’ve ever tried.

Thankfully things have improved since then. Another round at the same course years later I had an eagle followed by a quad.

  43. I don’t think this was predetermined, they made the offer for 6 designers to group together to make 3 separate teams, and they would choose the 2 best of those 3, essentially the ones that said no sealed their fate, the judges said that the design wasn’t good enough to go through on their own, and would be better suited if you were to team up and combine designs. It doesn’t take a brain surgeon to read between the lines /partner up, or go home/ that was the message, and that is exactly what happened. That said, I am intrigued by some of these designs.

  46. 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
