    Wow... this is an indictment of the school system. How the F*** did subject 1 pass high school AND college? As a point of interest, I'm homeschooled, and last year for geography, I had to memorize all 197 countries, the country's capital, and the country's flags.

    First I want to thank all of you for the support through last year. I had some great success and some frustrating defeats. I made great strides in my swing and mental toughness and I still have a long way to go. This thread will be where I post my schedule and prep for the upcoming season, you can also follow on instagram @KCLeonardGolf. I have a very busy schedule this year with more high level tournaments than I played last year. I will be playing the VGA again this year. I have the SCGA Mid-Am, US Mid-Am, All Navy Tryouts, All Armed Forces(if I make All Navy), I plan on playing in 2 city Am events as well. First up is the SCGA Mid-Am qualifier on March 18th. I played my first practice round on the course yesterday and will be playing another in a few weeks.

    Just remember that the Trackman device is measuring club head speed at the ball while the radar is before the ball - there has to be a difference. Plus I believe it extrapolates club head speed based upon ball speed. I will take ball speed every time because that's what is going to determine distance. Increased ball speed really gets me amped! I should add is that my ultimate goal is to get to 140 here.

    What I would call basic knowledge information that was taught when I was in school isn't considered essential anymore. Kids are taught that this type of information can be "Googled" if needed. I wonder what is considered essential now? I'm almost afraid to ask.

    We must have been watching at different times because it's as if we were watching two different tournaments. I saw lots of mid irons into greens and very few players reaching 18 in two. I saw guys having to curve the ball both ways to fight the wind, land the ball on very specific spots if they wanted to get it close and with tons of options around the green, going up to take the break out of using the contour to hope to kick the ball to the hole. What more do you guys want? I guarantee that you won't see a lot of long irons because lots of players don't have long irons in their bags, at least what would traditionally be considered a long iron. They have hybrids, cross overs and driving irons. However in the tale of reverse loft jacking when they are hitting 6 its very similar to the long iron 4 of yester year. So just realize that when you are seeing 5,6,7 irons you are seeing longer to middle irons being played just like you saw on Shell's Wonderful World of Golf last week. I go to Valspar every year - I see plenty of middle irons and there is always a par 5 that can't be reached and one that can by everyone - it depends upon the wind direction as to which is which. There are a couple of par 4's that require a lay up to 200 yards so you will see mid irons (that are long irons.) Follow groups around and you will see every club in the bag. When you call a club with 43 on the bottom of it called "wedge" you are going to see more wedges than you used to. That club used to be an 8 - think of it that way if you have to.

    Whatever you do. Don't lay it like this: That would've rolled to a decent spot. It wanted to escape!

    First off, too soon to talk Masters??? Didn't think so... I read an article yesterday about the menu Patrick Reed is planning for his Champion's dinner; Bone-in rib eye, mac and cheese, creamed spinach & creamed corn...? Interesting sides if you ask me and indeed I'd eat any of them myself, but thought them to be a little odd to pair up with what I consider the best choice of steak one could offer. These must be personal favorites of his and perhaps regional to where he is from, but for me I'd be simple with a Caesar salad to start and serve the steaks with king crab legs, baked (or even twice baked) potatoes and steamed broccoli and carrots. Pair with a lovely Chianti and BOOM, done. Finish with a fat slice of cheesecake...YUM! Simple? Yes. Classic? You bet. But I'm probably a stick in-the-mud. Now if I weren't going to serve steak as a primary protein, I'd most likely go with a grilled pork tenderloin, wild rice & grilled corn. So you're the newest Masters Champion. What do you serve up and why?

    Would you believe 50 and sunny in northwest Ohio today. Got to the driving range today - the driver worked great. - very pleased with the progress I've made especially on the narrow ball dispersion. Distance wasn't great but I'm focused on accuracy and those range balls were pretty beaten up rocks. Once that brain/muscle memory is locked in distance will be worked on. Short irons worked pretty well also, long irons not so much. My wife got me 2 - 1/2 hr lessons for Christmas and my birthday so I guess I know what I'll be working on with my instructor. BTW I hate hitting off the mats with my irons. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy

    I found the Chrome Soft X to be MUCH harder than TP5X. I bought them based on a statement from a buddy at Callaway, and I hated them from the first time I hit them out of the box.SO hard. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    I used the exact same SwingSpeed radar unit for each of my testing periods. I was also at an indoor Trackman simulator for the Week 6 and Week 14 (today) test, and the SS radar was consistently 3-5 mph higher than what Trackman would register. For $100 versus a $20k Trackman the radar is pretty accurate and consistent.

    Quick PSA about the tester badges: 1) If you tested this year, you got a 2018 badge. No need to request these. 2) To get a 2019 badge, you must complete Stage 2 in any 2019 test. 3) These badges will be on a 2 year roll. So once 2020 hits, the 2018 badge will go away...and so on. Carry On
