    I received the SuperSpeed Golf Kneeling pad and the Red club today. Many thanks to Daisy and Kyle! The pad seems nice and much better than the one I was using; but it doesn't have any assistance to help this 71-year old get off the ground! OMG!! The Red club is heavy! I am really impressed with all of the over 100 mph speeds I've been seeing from you guys with the Red club. The Blue club has been my heaviest, and tomorrow I will be using the Green, Blue, and Red clubs. I actually haven't seen much difference between the Yellow and Green clubs, so I don't think I will miss the Yellow club, but just getting the Red club out of the box, I can tell that it will be tough tomorrow. Wish me luck that I don't break something.

    Scrambles always seem to bring out some “not so honest” people...I used to play in a really big charity event that manages to get lots of great prizes donated to give away. After a few years where teams of guys that never seemed to break 90 when playing their own ball would turn in 21 or 22 under gross scores they made a big change......everyone plays and turns in their scores and they post all teams in order that they finish in....1st, 2nd, 3rd and so on...then they draw numbers to award prizes.....”here we have a dozen Pro V1’s per player......let’s draw a number.....ok the winners are the team that finished in 15th place.......next up is a new Callaway stand bag for each player......winners are the team that finished 5th.....and so on. The first year they did it there were some pissed off people who never came back, more than likely the cheaters, but everybody seems to like it and the tournament has grown to morning and afternoon flights because of it. The only problem I see with that is there are a lot of people that don’t play those type of events very often. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy

    I remain amazed at the number of guys who encounter cheating in handicap events. BTW a random guy with an 18 in a field of 40 golfers shooting a net 67 does not mean that he was cheating. If it’s the same guy multiple times then there’s an issue but that’s what the handicap committee is there for. I’ve played in a reasonable amount of golf tournaments - I only recall ever encountering 2 handicap “cheaters”. They were suspended from the Men’s group that I was a part of and all area clubs were warned about them by our Pro. Someone is going to have a good day and win the net part of a handicap tournament. If it’s not me it doesn’t mean that someone was cheating. My turn or your turn will come if you play enough. To the OP I don’t have an alternative and don’t see the need for one. There are always non handicap games, tournaments or groups to play in - I’ve been a part of those too. They’re fun if you’re a good enough player or the game can figure out a format that allows mid to higher handicappers to play and have a chance to contribute. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

    Daisy also volunteered to look at a video of my swing. I truly appreciate that. Instead I’ve scheduled a lesson. My teacher knows my swing. I had a poor range session today but I played well last Friday and know my issue a matter of sequencing. On a great note my speed was back up in today’s workout. Was over 100 with all my green swings, 110 several times, fastest kneeling ever and over 100 several times lefty. I’m just faster in the afternoon than the morning. My better scores come in the afternoon. My faster swings come in the afternoon. I’m an afternoon evening golfer. I prefer to write in the morning. :) Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

    The Golf Handicap System does not measure your quality as a person. If an individual cheats at something as meaningless and trivial as Golf I cannot begin to imagine their behavior when life’s more serious dilemmas come knocking. If someone is sandbagging and all it costs me is bragging rights then so be it. I’ve yet to get out of the shower to find my “you know what” has grown because of a good round of Golf. However, If money or merchandise is on the line then it’s time for a big boy or big girl conversation. I am a fan of the current handicap system. As a low single digit handicapper I enjoy the competition with others of all handicaps. Never have I thought to myself, “well you know technically I did beat you”. If I am playing a 22 handicap I know I have to beat ‘em by 21 strokes to win and I’m on it like two hobos on a hotdog. It’s a tremendous challenge and a way to share the experience with a wider variety of people. Many years ago my mother told me to clean up underneath my own porch before I go sweeper under the porch of others. I concentrate on being the best version of me (which isn’t easy) rather than trying to save the souls of wayward. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

    I generally refer to it as a piece of S***... but sometimes that's gets confused with my other piece of crap or my piece of garbage. Basically, they are all interchangeable and depending on the quality of my shot (or lack thereof), the name will change for the club. This is true of all clubs in my bag.

    Reminds me of a shot that I hit to about a couple of inches from the hole. I walk up to the next tee and an older gentleman asks me how close I was. When I tell him he introduces himself and tells me that Ben Hogan one told him that making a hole in once was luck but putting the ball next to the hole was all skill. For those of interested his name was Chandler Harper. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chandler_Harper

    I know you had said it before but seeing this post makes me shed a tear again. When you mention xbox and he wasn't that interested in golf it just makes me think of my young son who is similar. I can't think of anything worse. Thoughts are with you and your son GSwag.

    I agree it is probably more likely for a player of tiger’s skill. However I watched my uncle get one with a 5 wood that never got more than 3 feet off the ground on a 155yd hole. I was happy for him and disgusted at the same time, so who knows. I will get one someday! I just know it. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

    I've just gained a new level of respect for my northern friends. Got my second session of week nine in tonight after work and was greeted to a temperature of 32 degrees. After layering up real good with thermals, a fleece jacket, and a beanie (toboggan to us southerners), I was good to go. I will say that a leather golf glove doesn't work out to well. I even chose to only record my fastest speed ala Kenny. I usually record everything, but I decided to smart thing to do was save time and get back inside to a heater. I had some good swings tonight hitting a high of 106 dominant and 103 non dominant. I say it was a good night and a great way to end the day. I got an email from Kyle today asking for me to send a video of my swing so they can offer some advice. I'm hoping the rain that's forecasted for the weekend doesn't hit so I can head out to the range and take care of this. @Kegger, the kneeling swings will get easier. After my first session my lower back was quite stiff, but as I've gotten used to it, it's not as bad. I'm glad to hear the air quality out in California has improved and an saddened by all the lives that have been affected by the fires. I'm glad to hear you're safe.

    This one is next up in our shaft review pipeline. I still need to get some of the details from the team at UST while our shaft review partners at Cool Clubs take their S3 measurements, but I wanted to get some pics up now. This is essentially a release that celebrates the 10th Anniversary of the ATTAS line. While the paint is bold, it's not without purpose. Starting from the butt end of the shaft the colors celebrate the previous ATTAS models by way of sequentially matching the colorway of each of the 9 generations of ATTAS. Beginning with the butt section of the shaft; the original ATTAS was orange. The ATTAS 2 was red, 3 was yellow, and so on it goes through the white of the 9th generation ATTAS Cool. Full details and review in a couple of weeks.

    Great question! I'd say for me who plays 3-4 rounds a week, it is plenty of time, the club was tested in on course situations and used on the range for 2 weeks. I got a great idea of the performance in 2 weeks. If you only play 1 round each week, it might be cutting it a little close. For me, 2 uses of a club is not enough to make a final judgement. I think, if you could, I would order the club just before when you have some time off or have a few rounds scheduled. I think having the option of extending the to trial 3 weeks for an extra $10 would be a great option. It would give ALL consumers a chance to adequately evaluate the club and give Global Golf a chance to make a little more money off each trial.

    That's so true, hitting it inside a 3 foot circle is mostly skill but getting to drop is luck. I guarantee that most of us who don't have a hole in one know of countless shots that could've gone in. If it takes Tiger 20 years, my math says, I'd need to live to be 500 years old to make a hole in one.

    They have a bunch of the older ones. I did happen to be there the day Guerin was doing the videos on his history so I got to putt with all the new models and get some putting help from Guerin. I am thinking the 8.3 will be the best fit. Will probably also get a gravity fit grip in addition to one of their pistol grips.

    So, I was really the only one of the four of us selected for last year's ST180 testing to get along with the club in a big way, so I love my Mizuno driver and if the ST190 is an upgrade, it's a hell of bomber. I don't see the need to upgrade myself and I actually prefer the blue over the black, but the tech is legit. I wouldn't be shocked to see a jump up for those with Mizuno irons to make the switch to a Mizzy driver.

    still following with interest as a few MPH increases can relate to getting to a wedge distance instead of a 7 iron on approaches and who wouldnt want that....especially as Old Father Time is creeping up on us daily I see this as perfect winter work for your swing, and your body mobility, might even ask Santa for a set

    Not at all So my adventure with PXG started literally from the day they announced the clubs. As a massive gear-head I've bought most of the products they released. I'm also quite vocal and opinionated, so every time I'd be happy (or unhappy) with something I'd let them know, they gave me a few points of contact at the company and we've been communicating for a few years now. When the gen 2 irons were coming out - they offered me a fitting literally on the day they were announced and I was able to buy them before they were actually released (they were revealed I think March 15, I was playing them by March 29). And again a lot of communication about them etc... Then I've done a mini Youtube challange with a mate of mine - playing 30 different courses in 30 days, and they were super supportive of that for god knows what reason. And a few weeks later I got a call from them asking what I'm up to end of November and if I want to come hang out with Bob and their crew as it would be good to meet. And that's about it really. It has to be said tho - that as I talk to quite a few golf brands, PXG has been one of (if not the) most receptive to ideas from just a golfer and seem like a very very fun bunch

    Figured you guys would love this - life at a private club. My 9 iron shaft broke at the handle on the range today - really? So the fitter recommended that 6 and 7 have a wider platform - SCOR 44 and Wilson C300 9 iron are now in the bag for Friday’s round, G30 8-6. We shall see. This is what he wants. I honestly launch the G 30 short irons higher than I’d like. I wonder how these two will perform. They have until New Years. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

    I didn't play well on Sunday; poor chipping and putting. Yesterday I walked with guys at the club and played better; +2 on the front, then quit after #11 when it started raining. Rained most of the night, but quit about sunup. The course was wet, so today I decided to spend a couple of hours practicing. After a short warmup on the range and hitting a few drivers, I went to the pitching area. That was the worst part of my game this weekend. My tendency is to pull my shots left. I know they are range balls, but I'm not working on how the ball reacts on the green. I'm working on how straight to the target I can hit the ball. I hit a bucket of balls from 40 yards; OK but not great, so I picked them up and did it again. I focused on making more of a turn on my backswing; better... here's the result. Still have a way to go, but at least they aren't all to the left!! FYI, I was aiming for the back pin.

    Well the other week was my best round. Rewind to 1-2 years and I was struggling to get into the low 90's. The last year has mostly been in the 80's. Personal best was an 84 (different course). Fast forward to a couple weeks ago and I broke 80 for the first time with a round of 76. 27 Putts, 39% GIR (Probably why I had sub 30 putts), and 21 FIR% (Nothing wildly off the fairway). Most pars and birdies I've had in a round. 9 pars and 3 birdies. Only one double and one 3 putt. It was just one of those days where nothing was horrible and putting everything together.

    My ball markers are photo ball markers with pictures of my son on them. I also personalize a lot of my golf balls with his name and date of birth and death on it. There usually isn't a round of golf where he isn't on my mind.

    Scramble tournaments bring out the absolute worst in people. There is a charity event I play every year that sends two shotguns out on a Monday in June. The less intense golfers play in the PM and we see our scramble scores are often 4-5 strokes lower. First place in the AM group is often -15. The powers that be got it right in this event. First prize wins a $20 bottle of wine from the Finger Lakes. Nothing worth cheating over, an honest prize where the funds raised go where they’re supposed to go, the charity. I’ve been witness to fights in the parking lot and grill room following claims of cheating. It’s golf, life is too short. I will never understand. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

    Equal lofts don’t necessarily mean equal distances. With club advances and shaft fitting you may find that equal or even higher lifted clubs travel farther.

    We will all be seeing a new handicap system in 2020, and it will be the same throughout the world. We've seen some of the features of the new system, but the single biggest feature that has yet to be released is the determination of which scores will be used. In much of the world, your handicap is based primarily on scores from stroke-play competitions, scores entered by the tournament committee, not by the individual. I'd love to see the 2020 worldwide system move in this direction, in order to decrease the potential for a dishonest player to manipulate his handicap. In my experience, those dishonest players are relatively few, but they give the handicap system a bad reputation when its the individuals who deserve the bad rep.
