    That’s already happening - one of my friends has taken two lessons since the last time we played trying to figure out how to hit it longer - the killer for him was hitting hybrid on a par 3 where I hit 8 iron. For those who are wondering I don’t seem to be having any trouble with driver fit wise but I’m concerned about the shafts in my irons. I think they are starting to launch too high and balloon on me a bit. I did turn driver down a click - but my fitter told me last spring that the lowest loft I’m comfortable is where I need to be at. I’m hitting ropes with it. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

    ... Look at it like this. You can win a regional qualifier shooting 71 when everyone else is shooting 73's and 74's. While in another regional it takes a 68 to move on, so a 71 means you go home. There is some merit to playing in a weak regional. But get to the sectional and everyone is shooting 65's and 66's so you better have the game to shoot much lower under more pressure. If not you are going home. A 71 can get you there but you have to have the ability to beat much better players once you are there. So yea, a lower regional score can get you in the sectionals but you need to be much better to get to the National Championship.

    Was doing my next round of testing and looked in the warmup bag and what do I see a sub 70 639 CB and 699 7 irons. Have them a go and I was impressed. I preferred the CB over the blade. Both were nice but I felt like I was more accurate and longer with the CB. Didn’t have launch monitor dots on the 699 but based on trajectory it seemed to launch a bit higher. Will be interested to see how they perform in a full test.

    Well it got up to 65 in New Jersey today so I took the day off to get in my first round of the year. I went in with low expectations since I am in the middle of this swing change, but I was excited to see what I could do on the course. I posted my score in the What did you shoot today thread, but @GolfSpy MPR asked me what worked and what didn't during my round, so after thinking more about how the round went I thought I would post a quick summary here. I shot 3 over on the front and 2 over on the back for a +5 77. Weirdly enough, I played better overall on the front, but was hurt by a double bogey on 9. Funny thing is, the only reason it was a double bogey is because I have no idea what my iron yardages are (they have gone up a good amount because my swing speed has gone up). I was 180 out and I choked down on a 6 iron (my previous 6 iron distance was about 185 carry) and I hit a beautiful high draw that carried about 10 yards over the green and bounced behind a tree. When my new swing showed itself, results were great. However on the course I found myself more like to revert to my previous tendencies just based on simply muscle memory. This was even more apparent towards the end of the round as became a bit tired (first time I've walked 18 since October). It definitely can take away more positives than negatives from today and I know I need to spend a lot more time on the range really making my new movements become second nature before I can start to see consistent results on the course

    On the first flight for the Orlando meeting this week. What makes me happy is I’m meeting the PXG rep today to do the driver fitting. Looking forward to it!!!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    @Revkev, that's awesome! Seeing a 104 average had to be exciting! You'll watch all your buddies jaws drop when you send the ball flying. Wow, that's a 14 percent increase in just 18 weeks. I think SuperSpeed just found their new spokesman. Congrats! @GolfspyMPR, I'm glad to see you're able to get back on board with the training. I hope your discomfort in your hand is gone and you'll be swinging pain free. I'm really looking forward to tracking your journey to obtain a single digit handicap.

    I finally got back to playing golf the other day after taking about 8 month break. Me and my wife recently had a baby boy about 8 months ago so that was the reason for the break. It felt really good to play again and it reminded me of how much I missed it. Even though I have only been playing about 2-3 years. I’m excited for the spring and summer !

    Cost would be the biggest obstacle. It’s not like clubs could just get rid of an entire fleet of two-man carts. I see it as an issue for public courses more-so.... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    @Big money - not to pile on but my trainer, who is also an RN, has said - stay away unless your doctor prescribes it every time I’ve brought supplements up. Regardless great job on your program and I guess I will say the obvious here - “Eat more Chicken” :) Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

    So Daisy asked me to measure my driver because she suspected that I was having another jump. 105, 102, 107, 100, 106! That’s a 104 mph average hitting balls with my driver up from 98.8 four weeks ago and 91 when we started. I’m totally stunned. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

    I agree that not one shaft works in every head. When I got fit last year that was defiantly the case. You need to know what works with each club head.

    We're definitely willing to get equipment out to anyone that wants to do testing. I know we sent a number of different products over to MGS and I'm those results will come out whenever they are done with all of their testing. There will definitely be more feedback, reviews, etc. coming out soon. Thanks again for the interest!

    My wife (registered Dietitian) and her cohorts all like MFP simply because of the high number of food/ingredient information in the app. If you've cooked it/eaten it, chances are someone has calculated the nutrition for you. Big money, I don't know you and you don't know me and I get that...so take this statement for what it is...I'd be careful with the supplements, especially if it's coming from someone with little nutrition background (i.e. trainers, bloggers, etc without proper credentials). First, supplements aren't regulated and while some have 3rd party validation, the vast majority of supplements say one thing and contain another. For instance, protein supplements, though not true for every protein supplement out there, but if it contains a large amount of protein per serving (really anything over 20g/serving), chances are it's spiked with nitrogen to give it a fake protein rating. Heck, if you need more protein, eat another piece of chicken, beef, fish, cheese, etc. For most of us, we need about 1g of protein/day per 1kg of weight. For example I weight 220lbs which is 100kg which means I need to consume about 100g/protein/day. Sounds like a bunch but when you think about a 4oz piece of chicken has 28g of protein or that glass of milk has 8-12g of protein or those two eggs for breakfast has about 14g protein and that half cup of almonds has 10g of protein, then it adds up quickly. It's always best to consume food containing nutrients than in powder/capsule form. On the other hand, if you're going to bust your calorie intake for the day, a couple studies have shown that the body best handles excess calories in protein versus other nutrients like fat or carbs. Keep in mind the study was done by consuming protein found in natural form, not synthetic like in a supplement.

    Not really sure what to say to that, except to tell you a story from my early 20's, when I was still fishing around for what to do with my life, and I interviewed with Steeda. I walked in for an accounting position and they tried to convince me to sell parts to Mustang enthusiasts. I was somewhat intrigued by the turn of events, and went home and told my Dad what I went through and without missing a beat he said, "You're no salesman." We all have different gifts in life. How we discover what ours is is up to us. I'll give you another story from my childhood. I took years of piano lessons, and practiced endless hours, with minimal satisfactory results. By high school I had lost patience with practicing between lessons, and just stopped trying to learn songs by reading the music. I'd show up at lessons, having not done a thing, and I think halfway through my senior year of high school my piano teacher actually gave up on me and said, "You'll never be a classical pianist, so let's just teach you how to read chords." That story actually ends in an encouraging way, because for years I would struggle through trying to sight read for the piano off of the music and I was pretty bad. I mean, if my life depended on me being able to play a simple piece for the piano, I would be dead by now. But once I learned how to read the chords, and play chords, my piano skills took off in a whole other direction. Now I can play piano and sight read just about any popular music out there, as long as it has chords written on the page. Sure, I just don't have the ability to play classical piano, but I can sure as heck rip the keyboard for any popular song with chords and make it sound decent. The moral of the story is that sometimes, no matter how much effort we put into something, we'll never achieve our goals. I mean, who are we kidding here. I can spend every waking moment practicing golf and trying to improve my game in an attempt to become scratch, but the golf gods look down on me with scorn and derision, and have simply told me that a 4 handicap is the best I will ever be. Find what works for you, and don't kill yourself trying to do something you're not cut out for or can't master in a fair amount of time and practice. If it isn't meant to be, it isn't meant to be.

    Airman Jones was assigned to the induction center, where he advised new recruits about their government benefits, especially their GI insurance. It wasn't long before Captain Smith noticed that Airman Jones was having a staggeringly high success-rate, selling insurance to nearly 100% of the recruits he advised. Rather than ask about this, the Captain stood in the back of the room and listened to Jones' sales pitch. Jones explained the basics of the GI Insurance to the new recruits, and then said: "If you have GI Insurance and go into battle and are killed, the government has to pay $200,000 to your beneficiaries. If you don't have GI insurance, and you go into battle and get killed, the government only has to pay a maximum of $6000. Now," he concluded, "which group do you think they are going to send into battle first?"

    Breaking news:....I'ts hard to win Majors , especially with the depth of talent that is out there now. That said, I can't imagine any victory that would be more popular than Rickie winning the 2019 Masters! Possibly Phil finally winning the US Open for the career Grand Slam. What a summer that would be wouldn't it, if they both picked up those wins this year.
