    Did I say one? Meant to say 2. Yes, 2. First things first, a special thanks goes out to the 33 applicants we received for the open moderator position. It really says something positive about the community that this many people were willing to invest their time and effort. Many of these applications obviously took a lot of effort to pull together so we're also grateful of how serious the position was taken. Through 2 rounds of selections, two gentlemen separated themselves. We looked at the criteria from all different angles trying to nitpick our way to give one the advantage over the other but we just came up with differences, not advantages. Not only that, they complimented each other in a perfect Yin and Yang. Why not Zoidberg? I mean, why not both? After re-evaluating the workload, we decided there's definitely enough work to share if we want to truly bring this forum to where we want to be in style. This new platform has a lot of untapped potential that we'll continue to explore. If we're gonna do it, We're gonna do it right. We're going to do everything we can to make the user experience for YOU the best on the web so please keep the feedback and suggestions coming. Without further ado, please give a warm welcome to our new staffers. Formerly known as strokerAce and mpatrickriley, I'd like to introduce you to: GolfSpy Stroker and GolfSpy MPR Be sure to give them a follow on Twitter and Instagram as well. Social Media will be a big focus for MGS moving forward. 2019 is going to be a BIG YEAR

    It is truly an honor and privilege to be selected for the role. Hard to describe how flattered I am that I made the cut. Looking forward to a very bright and exciting 2019! Feel free to reach out to me at anytime via DM or on twitter at https://twitter.com/Golfspy_Stroker or on Instagram at https://www.instagram.com/golfspy_stroker/. As Michael Breed likes to say... Let's Do This!

    It is a great privilege to be chosen to be moderator here at MyGolfSpy. I've been an active member here for just over a year now, and am convinced that this is the world's best golf forum. Most of the time, the moderators here are regulated to Maytag repair duty, at least as it relates to moderating conversations, simply because we have such a great community. But that frees us up to plan ideas to continue to improve and expand the forum. So I'm glad to be at your service! My current Twitter account is @mpatrickriley. I've also reserved @GolfSpyMPR, which I'll use exclusively for golf-related stuff (if you're not interested in theology and my kids).

    My daughter got her results from her final high school exams. She smashed it,, she worked hard but still had a really good year socially and as a school leader. I'm not sure if her results will change what she wants to do at university, but nearly any course is now open to her. It was probably worth her scaling back on golf this year. She continues to make me proud.

    Play in November and December of 2019. Get fitted for the ugly stick. Take at least a handful of lessons. Keep my shoulder healthy (this will require a less aggressive swing) Have fun, and get my kids out more. Depending on where I’m at play a historical course. Play a round with a MGS member or 20. Have fun with the hickory sticks.

    I grew up in a rural setting and didn't know a single person that played golf. I didn't have a relationship with my dad after age 8 but one of the last conversations we had, he was trying to put me down. I asked him what sport he thought I was best at and he said "golf", as an insult. He left, never to return a few months later. Shortly thereafter, my mom bought me a virtually brand new full set of Tommy Armour 845s Silver Scott's at Goodwill for $35 and a bucket of shag balls from Walmart. Turns out his "insult" has left me with a lifelong passion that has been my "therapy" for the past 30 years. My happiness now is watching my daughter get the same joy from the game I did, albeit from a very different place.

    Congratulations to 2 great members. I can feel the energy and excitement that will come forth from this. And not to forget Studque ( and others behind the scenes) for their time and effort in going through the selection process.

    I did it again. Last purchase for me, for a little bit anyways. KBS Carry bag... 2019 goal is to not ride in a cart at all unless the course doesn’t allow walking. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

    I broke the par barrier last year, so my main goal is to break 70 this year. Other than that I'd like to; Get my swing speed over 110 Work on having a more consistent swing Hit more than my paltry 4 fairways from last year Work on my putting from 4-7 feet Play in and build up some a solid tournament resume for college golf

    I think it's more marketing $$ then R&D $$. Remember these guys are compensating players, running big ads in magazines, huge booths at trade shows, etc. etc. all of that is built into the cost of the clubs. And if that's not enough to yoU've got the middleman - the big box stores. For me the most sensible thing is to wait 9 months and buy it before the launch of the latest super improved club that may or may not give you an extra 2 yds. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy

    I know it's not even Christmas yet but I've started working on golf objectives for 2019. Last year I made great strides in a number of areas which led to my breaking 90 so now it's time to ratchet it up. Overarching goal is to consistently play in the mid 80's so I need to get moving on a number of components: Strength training along with a focus on Flexibility SS improvement by 5 mph across the entire bag Master the Fairway Wood. That also means a session with a fitter, + lesson and of course buy a new one [emoji16] since I sold mine (out of frustration) Continue the daily backyard chipping practice Continue making gains with my putting What are yours......

    yup- it's winter! Its dark here till 8.45am then Dark AGAIN at 4pm. Its 24* today, forecast of snow this weekend and even colder next week. I think it's the prospect of knowing it will be MONTHS of this that makes me feel similarly, maybe you too? Once we hit February the prospect looks brighter...........

    GAPR Hi. I must say, I’ve never really like TM stuff outside of the TP5, haven’t bagged one of their clubs since RBZ,but this thing is pretty f-ing solid. Reminds me of my old apex hybrid but much, much hotter off the face. Went back and forth on the mid and the hi, but wanted something to launch. Hitting it a constant 230 with absolute ease. Highly recommend looking into this lineup if you want something to bridge a long iron to a wood. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

    We are taking the kids to the Great Wolf Lodge on Christmas Eve, there’s a indoor golf center near by... be there for 2 days hopefully they are open on the 26th. Get some indoor time. Making it a goal to go to the college sim once a week in 2019 till real grass happens. Just hit my 30 chips in the basement into a solo cup. Holed 12. Still got it.

    Congrats on breaking 90! As far as goals for me this coming year, I am not sure where to start yet. For the last 5 years or so my main goal was to break 80. Well it finally happened this year and now I am left a little unsure what goals to set. I like to make them hard enough to have to work at but achievable so breaking 70 is out of the question. As I am typing this I think on goal will have to be to shoot par for 9 holes, whether that is the front or back 9 doesn't matter. Gonna have to do some thinking on this one.

    Great range session today. I guess you can say that I'm getting along pretty well with the TS2 and the Evenflow White

    No one in my family played golf, I had the bug as far back as I can remember and everytime I tried to catch some on TV my Dad put the kabash on that. In college I finally got a set of clubs (finding used left handed clubs in the late 70's was not easy). Played a few rounds with this old gent (probably in his 70"s at the time). The thing that impressed me about his play is he never lined any shot up. He'd walk onto the tee, bend over and tee up the ball. Step back while putting the club in has hands, put it back over his head then fired in straight down the fairway everytime. Only once did I ever out drive him, his comment was "Keep doing that and people will think you play this for a living" I only regret I don't remember his name, he was a great golf companion and teacher.

    I like wedges... like a lot. Practiced a lot. At least a hour a day all summer, sometimes 2-3 hours with just Wedges. I wore my Taylormade wedges out in 2 years to the point where I could “see and feel” the performance drop off, but even then they still did the job, just didn’t bite as hard on the first contact. These could be a good investment for Vokey fans that want some customization. Heck, I might give one a try. I also see this becoming a “thing”. People are all about having the ‘It’ factor and most of your average golf buddies won’t have these, so if being ahead of the Joneses is your thing... have you ordered yet? Good concept for consumers to get their hands on some cool stuff. Vanilla becomes more vanilla when you can get your hands on some Chunky Monkey.
