  2. Not the greatest score today, but it was a great round with my dad at the Nicklaus course at Pine Hills in Plymouth, MA. Got paired up with two members who were great about where to aim and what to avoid. Unfortunately they weren't aware that my father & I have ZERO control over where our ball goes... if it goes forward, we're happy! 5 penalty strokes which really hurt, all of them off the tee. I had another hole where I caught the driver dead perfect and blew through the fairway and landed in thick straw. 4 shots later and I was back on the fairway. I did have 3 pars so I'll tak

  4. I read a little bit of split motivations here. You're a good ballstriker with "easy" swings, all over the place when you try to hit it harder. You want to get control again. So why not swing easier? I know why, because you have a new driver, you expect to hit it further, and you're giving it that extra "juice" to get the distance. I'm speaking a bit from personal experience. I was fitted for a driver late last fall. For a while after getting it, I'd subconsciously give it a bit extra, because I expected a big increase in distance. That wasn't rational, the club was longer than my p

  5. Regarding you question on gapping, you should have about 12-15 yards between clubs. You might not have that because you aren’t swinging well and making good contact or the clubs aren’t setup correctly to provide that gap. My guess based on your post is that you are chasing numbers and trying to hit the ball as far as possible with every shot. I think you are just swinging hard and not fast which gets you out of sequence and results in inconsistent distances. You seem to be pointing at the fitting for causing the driver problems. What was you ball flight like before the fitting? I

  6. Lefty pic from Sweden, getting colder by the day.. hope to extend the season with warm clothes and will power.. This was a 7 iron from about 160 yards (to center green according to gps, pin far right and in the back) away from a blindspot behind a hill and some trees, pretty happy with the result. Missed the birdie putt though

  9. Our round yesterday was wrapping up just after 6:30pm so it was starting to get just a bit darker, and I didn't have any issues. In fact, this was a higher-end course with reflectors on all the pins, and I was able to get yardages with just a laser or two. I found getting the correct distance with the NX9 to be so much easier on this course than some others I play. Granted, I'm usually at the muni or a par 3 where technically a rangefinder isn't really needed. However, on a course with reflective pins the NX9 shined. I still accidentally turned off slope twice, however. Still an is

  10. Heading to Pensacola/Fort Walton Beach tomorrow for my 50th high school reunion (Fri and Saturday). The first night of the reunion will be at the high school homecoming football game and it just happens to coincide with my 68th birthday. Sadly, I won't be taking my clubs with me this trip. When I get back at the end of the month, we'll be taking off for 2 weeks in the motorhome to visit Moab and eastern Utah. I'll take my clubs, but not sure how much golf I'll get in. Maybe all of my bad habits will disappear while I'm not playing....as if!

  11. I played in a 4 man best ball tournament yesterday from the Senior tees. 5400 yards. It was a total joke but the money was for charity, so it all worked out. 3 of the 4 in our group were low single digit. The longest we had into a par 4 was 55 yards. The longest shot we had into a par 5 was 145. We drove a couple of par 4s. We finished the day at 51. It was a hell of a lot of fun at least!

  12. Bought a used Titleist 915F 3 wood with S70+ stiff shaft in superb condition, looked new! Just been able to get one quick session with it but so far so good. Getting those good condition used clubs in specific specs for me as a lefty is quite a rare find.. Atleast in Sweden.

  13. Par 4, 18th hole at Pine Hills. I hit my drive up the left side, and wanting to avoid water further up on the left, hit my 5i well to the right and in some trees. Nothing too bad, but I knew I had to go low to avoid branches. I hit a punch 7i that smacked the pin and landed 1" from the cup. One of our playing partners then chipped up, clipped my ball, and ended up in the hole. I still got the par!

  14. ... Fwiw, I have never thought or stated a shorter shaft is better for 100% of those that play golf. Just the majority. I just haven't seen the video's claiming average golfers hit longer shafts farther. Robots? Absolutely as of course a longer shaft will produce more distance than a shorter shaft with all things being equal. It is the all things being equal that puts the fly in the ointment. But I think the article you linked said it well "In fact, a shorter shaft should help you find the sweet spot more often and may even add distance. Who thought the simplest of golf tips could make such a

  15. GolfspyChris posted this last week, so I'd give it a bit more time, but keep checking back. Thanks to the most active, passionate and engaged forum in the business! We've narrowed it down to 4-6 final designs which will be announced shortly. Here's what happens next: 1) Each finalist will receive a one-off copy of that individual design. 2) A final winning design will be decided via voting on social media, etc. Stay tuned!!!

Wilson Profile Junior Set Official MGS Forum Review by Deejaid and Layla- Stage 2 After Layla was selected and received her Wilson Profile clubs it was time to ditch the old cut-down wedge and putter and get to work hitting all the clubs in her new bag.

  18. Played Old South GC in Blufton, SC today.....just off Hilton Head Island. Front nine was super, shot 40. Back nine was a nightmare, shooting a 46....several holes were forced carry over marshland to a landing area then another forced carry to the green.....missed the Par by a fraction of an inch! Overall play was fun, the fairways had plenty of grass under the ball. My cost was $45(as a timeshare owner)....one Par 3 had a deal the pro shop would double what you bet if you get on the green, which I bet $20 and made the green....140 yards.

  19. Played with my eldest son in our regular Monday game. We played at Westwood in Norman OK - it's quite a short course only 6162 from the black tees with a par of 70 but a good little course. They had a rep from Titleist who was giving out 2-ball sample packs so that was nice - they gave me a pack of ProV1's and AVX and my son Tour Soft and AVX. I played the round with the ProV1 - such a great ball (no duh I know). I started out with 3 birdies in a row (Par 5, par3, par4) before I cooled off a bit. I had a good round although I missed more greens than normal. I missed a few on the fringe which l

  20. Just got Mike's email blast about the upcoming program he's releasing that incorporates the SuperSpeed training. The biggest news from my perspective? The opening week pricing for it is going to be $49. In all honesty, the price of the programs is the biggest thing that kept me from pulling the trigger before, but I'm pretty strongly leaning to getting in on this one for my off-season work this winter.

  21. I did have my graphite iron shafts pured for my current set of irons that I ordered. Since I don't have before and after data to compare, I can't comment if it was worth the $$ or not. Here's what I do know....I don't have any doubts niggling in the back of my mind that maybe if I'd only done this....blah blah. In any case, I'm hitting my irons very consistently and any faults with the results lay solely on me and my swing. My hybrids, wedges, and woods are not pured (Driver was). I hit the hybrids pretty straight. Driver's another story, but again, that's more me than anything else.

  28. Sometimes the more you know, the more you realize just how little you actually know. That’s certainly been the case with the ball market in 2019 where MyGolfSpy’s testing started to peel back the layers revealing some rather uncomfortable findings regarding performance, consistency and how in the name of Zeus’ beard a package of one-dozen balls could actually be comprised of several fundamentally different balls. Maxfli’s answer to all of this is a ball with Center of Gravity Balancing Technology which it asserts can produce a straighter (and higher) ball flight. While the jury is still o

  30. I don't have a single favorite shot I've made, but I do have a favorite shot I make with these clubs. It's a short lob shot with the Gap wedge. I now feel confident when getting ready for it (over a bunker, hill or nothing significant) because it's become pretty consistent.

  31. Went out for a solo 18 hole round since league and men’s club are over. Just a beautiful day with barely a soul on the course. Oddly, I was so relaxed but played so poorly. I started off snap hooking my driver- 3 and 4 irons all over the lot. Than near the end of the round I started hitting huge push slices with the driver that went right of right. The short irons were bad as well. Started off as weak pushes and finished with pulls left. I guess in the scope of things it doesn’t matter since I was a solo. But can’t explain how this total break down seems to creep in quite frequently. My clubs

  35. NFL analysts are really something. The Bills were forecasted to win 6 games on average. Now that they’re 3-0 it’s a soapbox of “well, they played poor teams.” They have a long way to go but would it be the worst thing in the world to say wow, these guys are playing a good team concept of disciplined football?!

  36. Curious, were you already doing squats and deadlifts as part of your previous programming? Mike still definitely favors being strong in golf per the Golf360 podcast I was listening to. His exercises do focus on a lot of rotational strength, but to paraphrase what he said during the podcast, a overall strong person who can move significant weight in the main exercises (squat, deadlift, bench, etc.) has a lot of potential for more speed in the swing. For those who are significantly strong already, he recommended overspeed-type training (SuperSpeed) to unlock that additional speed. For those

  43. Another quick update for this thread: Even though the championship itself is over, there were a couple of additional tournaments to which this one served as a qualifier. The first is the club's individual match play championship and the second is a Ryder Cup-style team match play event against a neighboring club. While I know I did not qualify for the team event (I still could receive a captain's pick though), I was happily surprised to receive an email regarding my round 1 bracket in the individual tournament!!! I have until the 30th to schedule my match. Unfortunately, expecta

  45. Interesting discussion on playing “emotions”. I’m very fortunate in that I get to play 4-6 rounds per week. What I’ve discovered is that very simply put, some days you have it, and some days you don’t. My round the other day when I stunk up the place was funny, because we were discussing this concept as we were playing. It almost became funny when one of us hit a bad shot, and everyone had a smile after a bad shot, because we all know it’s not the norm. Because we see each other hit hundreds of great shots most of the time. but some days.... you just don’t have it. No need to get all piss

I was never able to get on a monitor for hard data, which was a bummer, but had a few migrations to push through at work and I could never coordinate a time session with my fitter in the evenings as the shop closes before I was able to get out of the office. I did still get out for a few late evening range sessions, 9 hole walks, and a few weekend rounds. Looks (9 out of 10 points) This
