    How's your short game? These 4 spies are about to find out.... Let's congratulate these 4 spies and follow along as they give these a thorough workout: @MDGolfHacker @Apes44 @goaliewales14 @Smellis745 Official announcement here: https://forum.mygolfspy.com/topic/32400-4-testers-wanted-cleveland-rtx-4-wedges/?do=findComment&comment=558847 (4) TESTERS Wanted Cleveland RTX 4 Wedges If you do something once and it works well, then why not do it a second, third and now even a fourth time? Makes sense right? Well that must be what the club designers at Cleveland Golf think. A company that knows a thing or two about wedges, has stuck with a successful formula in the RTX line. Without changing the by now well known RTX name, Cleveland has certainly added what it feels are some enhancements to make the wedge even better than before. What are those changes and how do they perform? Well that's where four trusted forum members will come in, as they will be chosen to test, review and keep two wedges in the RTX 4 lineup. You will be able to choose which two lofts you would like to test and which of the three finishes you'd like. .

    The only time I really noticed the sound was when I switched the heavier weight from the back of the club to the front to try and reduce spin. It definitely had more of a hollow metallic sound with the weight in the front. Not necessarily a bad sound but definitely different. I have no problems with it. At the start of the season I had a few "friends" apologize that I was going to waste my entire summer playing poor super game improvement irons and below average wedges. I think my 11 shot victory in our first two-day tournament of the year shut them up about that.

    I have to admit that this is the first weekly challenge that has me a little nervous. I tried hitting a few irons off the tee during a 9 hole round on Sunday so I would have hybrids into the green. It did not go well. I'm also terrible at chipping with anything but a wedge in my hands. I'm playing 27 holes this afternoon but will then be done with rounds for the week as I am traveling on Saturday and playing in a charity scramble on Sunday. I'm going to predict a 4th place finish this week. To my fellow competitors:

    Wife has been wanting a Dyson vacuum for as long as I can remember. I finally said ok, had it for about 2 weeks and it quit working. I knew I should have said no again! At least I can get a few years out of golf equipment... [emoji23][emoji23]

    I had a 10 off 50 deal at amazon and picked these up for 46.00 ... not bad for a 140.00 shoe! Wore them for the first time yesterday and they are LEGIT. the boost is extremely comfortable and the spikes are done just right. Really like the color too...they look great in person. If you're like me and have trouble finding wide shoes these should be on your list. Good amount of room in the toebox (which I need due to bunion surgery). Very pleased... On the not so pleased front - I played well but had 40 putts ... FORTY... for 36 holes. So it's time for a new flatstick; this will be #3 for this year... really liked these when they first came out and should have bought it then. MGS #1 most wanted blade putter a couple years ago... don't let me down!

    I got my favorites, in brand new condition and I didn’t have to go back in time. 1992 Macgregor CB-92/VIP combo set. All the heads were new unhit when I got them, the VIP musclebacks still had the plastic on the face. In the bag now. Love them. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Almost had my 5th hole-in-one today: 9 iron 136 into 15 mph breeze - SO close and my wife was with me and she hasn't seen any of mine. She still hasn't :( It hit - bounced forward and spun back. So close and yet so far! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    It’s been a while since I posted but it’s time to update what is in my bag for my first season of professional golf. There are definitely some improvements that I’m looking forward to but overall I’m pretty happy with my bag so far. It helps that this setup has me -2 thru 54 holes of tournament golf (and $1,200 in winnings) since the driver, 3wood and wedges went in the bag on June 23rd. So here is what is in my bag. Driver: Titleist TS3 - Diamana White Board 70X tipped 1” & 1” short 3wood: Titleist TS3 - Diamana White Board 80X Driving Iron: Titleist 712u - Accra 110i X Irons: Titleist 714 AP2 4-PW - KBS C-Taper 130 X Wedges: Vokey SM7 - Dynamic Gold X100 Putter: Evnroll ER2 - P2 Aware Grip Ball: Titleist ProV1 Yellow Glove: Under Armour Iso-Chill Range Finder: Precision Pro NX7 Pro Speed Trainer: Golf Stick Pro Carry Distances per GCQuad Dr (8.5*) - 290 3w (14.25*) - 265 2 (18*) - 245 4 (21*) - 225 5 (25*) - 215 6 (29*) - 205 7 (33*) - 195 8 (37*) - 180 9 (41*) - 165 PW (45*) - 150 50.F.12 - 133 55.S.11 - 117 60.M.08 - 105 Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

    Did the fitter explain why he put you in that setup? Have you tried matching the specs to a cheaper putter? Your comments indicate you are struggling so I just wanted to say changing putter to find the right fit is a way to find a putter but there are other ways. Don’t know if you are a technical or “feel” player or if you even want to understand the stroke. Knowing you tendencies goes a long way to figuring out proper fit.

    Gonna be tough to place well this week...I've only got 9 holes in and this mess is in the forecast. Anyone curious how well the hybrid does out of wet rough?

    Hmm, I'm not sure I'm capable with the clubs, the best chance I would have is the wedges. I actually have hit a really hard hook with my 58 degree around a tree that looked great until it bumped a branch and went into the bunker... The irons aren't really super workable..they are just straight and long and super forgiving. I don't have recurring playing partners. I usually get paired up with someone or run into someone whose backed up and play along. the last time it happened I ran into this super nice guy who was playing with some brand new Mizuno JPX 919's Forged. We both hit off the tee, I murder the ball with my 5i and he gets up with his 4i and hits it solid but blocks it. We get down to our balls and I am a good 30 yards in front of him and in the dead center of the fairway...I almost didn't want to tell him what club I hit when he asked me... I mean it was just a 206 yd 5 iron...whats the big deal... No issues, I like it but I'm not really a sound guy, I could, in general care less about how a club sounds, I just want it to be in the fairway or on the green...

    Just some follow up on the True Linkswear Knit shoe. I’ve had them for about a month now and they’ve become my daily shoe. My wife even took notice and said nice looking sneaks. I’m not one to fawn over shoes but I am very impressed with how comfy and stable they are. The toe box is a little wide for my foot but I’ve had zero issue swinging a club. They’re not for dew sweeping rounds as I found out the hard way but as an all around shoe and something to wear for a pm round I would say take a hard look. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

    Watched Marin Hall at lunch on how to hit a low hop and stop pitch shot. So tonight I had 29 yard (see arccos) pitch shot. So I remembered the tip--to hit it low--ow hands going back and low hands on follow through. Put the ball back in the stance. Took an aggressive pass wiith the 58* slightly delofted. The ball flew about two feet high. Took one big bounce and stopped on a dime pin high two feet from the hole. Easy putt for bogey due to coming up short on the approach wedge. After having to layup before a hazard on my 2nd shot due to a poor drive.

    The new for 2019. Veylix Mansion shaft. Hoping to have it for my trip to TX next week! My buddy who sells them said if it’s tipped like JC from Veylix says, it’s a beast! He said he’s been places on the course he’s never been, and he said it’s so accurate, “You could hit it down a hallway and not hit either wall!” I love my Rome, but he said this has the accuracy of the Rome while boosting ball speed off the clubface.

    Picked up mint condition M4 3hybrid and M2 4hybrid clubs on ebay for $50 each. Wasn't hitting those irons well and swapped them out. Really liking the hybrids too. Had to swallow my pride of not hitting long irons well but i'd rather score better!

    The wonderful thing about golf instruction is that there's a teacher and a style out there that will fit with nearly anyone and everyone. Doesn't matter if it's online or in person. People all respond differently when it comes to how they're taught and how they retain and use that info. I've bought videos and e-books from a number of online instructors, follow a bunch online, read their posts in forums, etc. Some things have worked for me, some haven't. Just like with in-person lessons. I tried one locally respected instructor who's methods had me in back spasms. I went to someone else with a completely different teaching style and things clicked almost immediately. What doesn't work for you may work wonderfully for another person. No need to bash what you personally don't like or understand, as what doesn't click for you may be the lightbulb moment another person needs.

    I wasn't used to the speed of the greens and the pace threw me off the first 10 holes; last 8 I had 2 putts all the way in. The putter I was using has a heavy head so it was hard to get a feel. I practice at home on my putting mat each night and I practice at various ranges when I can get out there. I think a big part of the problem was the putter. Just never got comfortable holding it in my hands and getting a feel for the pace and I left myself some long second putts. Better days ahead!

    I haven't really noticed the sound as being a problem. No one that I play with has made a comment about the sound either. They just like the look of the Avalanche coloring.

    Update from yesterday’s range session. I wasn’t having the best of ball striking days. Hitting all sorts of misses. At least I know what to expect when I am having an off day. I can chunk them pretty easily on this new grass that I am not use to. But after a few fat shots I just opened up the face a smidge and was hitting some beautiful soft fades. (Using this for my stock shot, 2-3 yard fade) On the flip side I was catching some thin toey, and a few skinny necky ones. These clubs are magical on thins for a blade, you know you missed on the bottom but it doesn’t kill you like a jack hammer, and distance lost isn’t extreme, nor is the direction. Quite impressed. I could still have gotten around the golf course at a pretty decent score with my C- game.

    What sort of reaction are you getting from other golfers out on the course with the new clubs? Are you hearing any "you've never reached there before!!" from playing partners, any comments on the looks/performance, or are you sneaking in under the radar to drop some low scores?

    I haven't used a mirror for years, and when I got mine I thought it was faulty. My eyes were so far past the ball they were almost off the mirror. I'm certain this was contributing to my left misses, especially on longer putts. The magnetic aspect of the mirror is more of a problem for me, it feels a bit like the putter sticks to the mirror. I will look into this more. I probably don't intend on using the mirror for extended session, more for quick check ups of my head position. Speed control on long putts will be interesting to monitor. Although the mat and pressure trainer wont directly have an influence, I wouldn't be surprised if more precise speed control on 6 foot putts transfers in some degree to longer putts. Initial drills with the gate have been fun, and should have a real impact on line. Although the Puttout system won't help with reading putts, I'm a believer in the old maxim of "every putt is a straight putt". Personally I'm probably a better than average reader of putts, perhaps due to having a bit of a creative side, and constantly adjusting to subtle angles in my work.

    Today I played with my wife and I was able to play both balls on most shots. Two shots in particular that struck me today. It was really windy and on two different par 3's I was playing directly into a 15 mph breeze - nothing crazy but certainly noticeable. The first was hole 9 - my Bushnell had it at 185 and it was dead into the wind. I wear glasses but not when I play so typically can't see the ball land. I hit the Z Star first and then the XV. Both felt good - high draw with both though the Z Star looked a tick higher. When I get to the green, I see one ball about 4 ft from the pin and the other one short: The Z Star was short; the XV was stuffed. The next hole I'd like to draw your attention to is 15. A short hole to a green protected by water in front. It was playing 136 into the same wind. This time I could see it - the Z Star climbed the wind and came up short; the XV almost went in the hole. Both balls are fantastic but for me the XV is better in the wind. I know some of you have found the exact opposite to be true - isn't testing great :) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Been switching back and forth between the gamer and the TA3 noticing that the TA3 feels like it comes off the face more on line than my current gamer. On longer putts I have not been able to tell too much of a difference as of yet. Another weird thing, due to the smallness of the TA3 putter face I find that I am hitting the center of my MLA much more often than before, weird tidbit but I think the TA3 is helping the ball striking in my putting.

    Vast majority of the time I will walk using a push cart. The only time I'll pay for a cart on the course is if it is extremely hot or there are thunderstorms in the area and we might be called back. My biggest concern was finding the time to play enough and be an active participant in the forum the entire summer. Luckily my work boss and real boss (wife) are extremely generous. 3 wood. It's been an absolute beast for me on the tee box and the fairway. Haven't tried it too much from the rough yet. I have a Bushnell Tour V4 rangefinder and a Garmin Approach G3 GPS (plus Arccos on my phone). If I'm playing a round at my home course I don't even bother starting up the GPS. I know all of the layup distances and only need the rangefinder to get the exact pin locations. If it's a new course the GPS is probably more beneficial. The F9 irons are long, high, and straight. They are harder to shape around trees and other obstructions, but I'll take that trade-off knowing most of my shots will be online. Haven't noticed any loss in spin around the greens. My favorite shot with the new irons is a half or 3/4 swing Pitching Wedge that bounces once and stops on a dime.
