    Time to roll over the odometer again. Been a fun darn near 2 years Gents. Lots of good conversations, debates, arguing, agreeing, disagreeing, complaining, jumping for joy... Thanks for putting up with me, damn fine group of people here. Looking forward to the next chapter! It’s been fun to watch this place grow, even in the somewhat short time I’ve been here. We are all in good hands, thanks to Adam and the crew at HQ, and the boys that keep us safe from spam, keep us in check as needed, and all of you for making this place what it is... an inviting, every member matters place to be. Cheers! Alan

    Whoaaaaaaa bro! The Launchers are safely in the sack My buddy big Dawg wanted my thoughts and I'm gave em a few whacks in the arse. I will say I hit some pretty darn quality shots with em! The cool thing is Dawg's specs are a mirror of my own so the transition was smoother than butter on a hawt sweet potato.

    For those of you that didn't watch Friday afternoon - they're squeezing the water off the greens! Also check out the replay of Tony Romo's chip off the viewing platform. Hope Mickelson can break out of the group to retake #1 on Saturday. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy

    I was planning on showing pics of my new driver shaft I ordered last week. Now I'm not sure if to post here or "got problems" thread. Purchased a new driver shaft from one of the more reputable shops. It arrived today looking like this. FYI the grip end of the shaft was well cushioned with bubble wrap unfortunately the other end wasn't. [emoji35] We'll see how the shop responds. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy

    We hope so. Unfortunately at this point it's just a numbers game. The costs associated with creating LH products just weren't justifiable as we were getting started. We've definitely heard from a lot of lefties that are interested and we want to have some LH offerings asap...it'll largely just depend on how this year goes. We'd love to have LH stuff in our lineup sooner rather than later though!

    Have you considered doing an online lesson or two in order to get a trained set of eyes on your swing? I have been following Larry Cheung on Instagram and Youtube and I love his coaching style and thoughts on the swing. https://larrycheunggolf.com/ If I didn't have a local pro, I would definitely opt for online lessons with him.

    Lesson #6 I had my 6th lesson yesterday and we started off by talking about my round on Tuesday. I explained what was working, what wasn't and where I was struggling the most. I warmed up and started taking some swings and we talked about my left misses were coming from my weight getting too much in my toes and thus causing me to come over the top. We worked on exaggerating the feeling that the weight was staying in my heels throughout the swing. The pressure mat showed that while I felt the weight was in my heels, it was right in the middle of my feet where it was supposed to be. This is just another example of exaggerating the opposite feeling of what you are trying to get away from. We also widened my stance a bit, as it was definitely on the narrow side - especially with the scoring clubs. Getting my stance a little wider helped me with my weight transfer and rotation as it reigned in my lateral hip movement while still letting me post up on and rotate around my front leg on the downswing. I have two more lessons to go and I am really happy with the progress I have made so far. Is my swing transformation complete? Not even close. However, I understand the concepts and the moves and I am beginning to put everything together on a much more consistent basis. I am realistic and I know that this entire season is going to be a journey. My work and family life doesn't allow me to practice much, so I know the full swing changes won't become second nature as fast as I would hope. I just have to continue my journey, work within my own time constraints, and keep my expectations realistic. I know I am on the right path and I am excited to see where it leads me.

    I've been leaving the pin in, and I have gotten used to it. So much so that when I was in Phoenix a couple of weeks ago, a guy I was playing with wanted the pin out and I decided to leave it out. Bad putting round. Here's my issue; I putt looking at the hole, and I have for 4 years. Since I have been putting with the pin in, I feel like I have a better focus on the line. Not sure why; maybe it's the vertical reference provided by the pin. IDK. The pin stays in. If someone wants it out, I'll pull it then put in back in. If that takes more time because I haven't been reading my putt while I'm holding the pin, so be it.

    My wife showed me a weather report on facebook for our area next week. It says 12"-18" of snow likely with the possibility of up to 36"! I laughed and told her no way we are going to get that much snow. I sure hope I'm not wrong on that!

    I am a golf equipment junkie and I'll admit it. Started playing on my high school team in late 70's. Parents bought me a Lee Trevino Faultless set from Kmart and i Stopped playing when I went to college at Purdue West Lafayette. Picked the game back up in late 80's early 90's and have been playing non stop 29 years. I've also been a competitive bodybuilder since 1984 and recently retired when I realized i wasn't going to obtain my IFBB Pro card. I play in two leagues a week plus scrambles plus playing with friends. Being a cop allows me a chance to play for free at my local course which I take full advantage of. Handicap is an 8 at the end of last season and about 10-15 years ago I had several rounds in the 60's. Now I occasionally break 80 in my late 50's. I really enjoy the equipment testing that goes on here and I pay close attention to unbiased reviews. Thanks to MGS I bought a new $100 putter from Dicks that works great !! Tommy Armour Impact Series 3 black shaft.

    I've been eyeing the Tour Blues as well. Seem to fit what I would be looking for in a shaft.

    ... I love the Rogue shaft series. Just awesome shafts that can be bought for much less than when they were introduced. I have a Rogue Black Tour 110 shaft that retailed for $799 and while it is a little smoother than the $299 original priced retail version, performance is very similar, it just has a smoother feel and higher QC. One of the absolute steals is the Rogue Silver Tour 125 that was stock in Wilson Trident driver that sold for $99. I had a friend that bought one and gave away the head. https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=p2510209.m570.l1311.R1.TR10.TRC0.A0.H0.XWilson+Tr.TRS0&_nkw=wilson+triton+driver&_sacat=0

    If these new fangled carts take hold, the price of traditional 2 man carts should plummet and those of us in the market for one will have lots of inventory to choose from .

    No, height isn't the only factor in determining lie, but it does play some role. I see where your fitter is coming from, I'd just be concerned that it would turn into a bad slice.

    Can tell you a funny dead weight one--- A while back a few of us used to walk 9 holes on Wednesday amongst them my buddy the Miura dealer--- Now he hates lead tape and is always giving me crap about it. I was using a pretty light TEE 3.5 at the time and like I said before I travel light even when riding. I noticed about the second hole my bag seems heavier. I told them I must have been tired. Come to find out those clowns had slipped 3 full rolls of lead tape and about a dozen Range Balls in the side pocket. What was funny he had borrowed the 3 rolls from another friend's shop and he was in on the joke too.

    Snowed most of the day, but very small flakes. High 25º which will be the low tonight. I shoveled the driveway for my wife to driver her car into the garage. Now it's snowing again, and she won't be home for another 30 minutes. Grrr! and Brrr!

    I’m kind of feeling the same way. Be so much better if they’d pick real am’s. Obviously sponsor money pays for this one, and donations. Love the views though. And the Sunday round.

    Hit the range and putting green today. Trying to rid them pesky winter kinks. After 2 buckets of balls I could tell I’m out of “golfing” shape. But that’s why I bought the unlimited balls at my courses driving range. At only $75 a year it was a no-brainer. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

    Make it four I've never had lessons and played off the rack for a very long time. Maybe got down to an 8 or so that way. I've still never had lessons, but I have been fit several times. I do believe it's made a big difference. A bad swing is still going to be a bad result, but a good fitting can help you hit the ball well more often. So even though it's a drive, don't give up on it just yet! I will say the biggest thing that helped me go lower though was just playing more often. I used to play a handful of times a year, maybe once or twice a month when the weather was nice. Since we moved on to a course I get to play weekly and sometimes more. Just going out to play more has made by far the biggest difference in my scoring.

    This, in my opinion, is an out-dated and not entirely convincing argument. Callaway and Tour Edge both make boxed sets available at places like WalMart. Tour Edge's higher end line is the Tour Edge Exotics, which is one word difference, just like Wilson/Staff. Yet you don't normally hear people complain about TEE quality simply because they can buy a Tour Edge boxed set someplace.

    See the answer from Allan in the link below. It makes a good point about how it could improve an amateurs consistency though not to Bryson's level. https://www.golf.com/the-knockdown/2018/09/07/who-will-replace-dj-as-number-one/?utm_medium=social&utm_source=facebook.com&utm_campaign=si.golf&xid=socialflow_facebook_golf+ Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
