  1. I can't see the MGS crew having any interest in doing such. It's safe to assume they know the gear won't properly fit everyone it goes to. In fact, I would go so far as to say they expect the lucky people to sell what doesn't fit them or that they don't want. The raffle seems to be a way of clearing out equipment that MGS don't need to keep around and as a way of saying thank you to the people who graciously give money to help support the mission of a small business that they believe in. If you can't use the equipment, fine--sell it and keep the cash or buy something you do want. MGS do

  2. It ain’t dangerous unless there’s a Shankster shanking around somewhere. I picked up a bad “tip” from a YouTube thing and it messed me up entirely for a long time, still messed up really. The thing that gets me is when everything is going great for months, you feel like nothing has changed, yet one day out of the blue the [emoji90] hits the fan, and you are searching for what the heck went wrong. One bad shot and the doubts creep in... “oh shoot I got that one towards the heel”, and bam-o the next one is right off the hosel. Or “dang that one leaked a little right” only to duck hook

  3. Had my 4 month skin check last week, very happy to say it was all good, no biopsy required, let alone anything cut out. I'm on a 4 month schedule as I've had two Melanomas removed this year. Thankfully both were fully contained within the dermis and no further follow up was required. I was fully expecting to have another biopsy and removal, very pleased that wasn't the case. Two more clear checks and I can go back to yearly checks. Melanoma is a national curse here in Australia, the environment isn't well suited to pasty pale people like me, curse those Anglo-Celtic genes.

  4. Cobra sent out a media kit for the new Speedzone drivers (full story: here). As seems to be the case lately, I was traveling when it arrived, but I shot some photos today, primarily so you could see the difference in the shape/footprint of the standard model and the Xtreme. I also was messing with some lightroom presets and inadvertently transformed the version into the white, so you get a reasonable idea of what that one looks like too.

  6. Well, I fought the cold (48*-58*) both days and finished -8 on my points. Shot 86/87 for the two days with only one Birdie. Finished Tied for 20th out of 34 players. The cold definitely hurt my game but I did play consistent. The Winner is our General Manager for Pebble Creek. He was on his game, shooting 69/71 for +10 on his points. All in all, everyone had fun.

  8. @GregB they look beautiful - glad you got them. @RickP his reviews of area course are spot on, informative and insightful. Can we shoot for a MGS putting sometime between Christmas and January 4? Perhaps @ World Woods? We could include Foz. I’d love to see those irons and show off my Ping Long Game stuff as well.

  10. Made it to our winter roost on 11/14 and played Saturday at Mesa Del Sol 49/38 - another Jekyll & Hyde round. Got a bit lucky on the back nine as an errant drive on #11 was knocked back into play my a palm tree. Good thing because my provisional was drilled dead straight and rolled through the fairway and OB . Played Coyote Wash on Monday and shot 37/43. I was -2 on the 9th tee and summarily pushed one OB resulting in a triple bogey. The guys were kind of disappointed even though we were playing "wolf" (for dimes); they were rooting for me to finish under par. On the par 5 #7, I

  11. Okay, I tried the Tour X for two rounds, then the Tour for two rounds. Overall, I prefer the Tour, as it gave me more height and kept me in the fairways. The fact that I played 2 rounds and the ball is still very playable, speaks wonders for me. more to come....... Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

  12. These are a few of my best swing thoughts I have picked over the years that had a marked impact on my game: -Keeping back to the target (staying with shoulders "closed" through Impact). This fixed my overly fast hips/shoulder rotation in the downswing which was causing huge blocks in my case, since I was leaving the club way behind. Similar to this, is Bobby Lopez' 2 o clock drill (keeping your eyes and making sure your chest is pointing at 2 o clock at impact (12 being straight at the ball) -Hands forward at impact/coming down with left hand in downswing - This instantly

Good luck to those of you who advance to the playoffs. It'll be fun to follow along and see who gets the bragging rights. Man, the season has flown by.

  17. Ha ha .. soooo many "magic tips" .. and so little time... Great topic, and honestly (really!) .. in large part due to reading through these forums over the past few years, I only work on things that I've gotten directly from an instructor during an in-person lesson. That said... my current magic move to help me both (1) get my body rotating in sync with the arm swing and (2) rotating through on to the front foot is to "pull down" with the lead shoulder from the top of the backswing. Of course, this has to be combined with the other magic move of pushing off of the back foot and ........

  20. Played with my eldest son at Wedgewood today in what could very well be the last round of the year. The weather was amazing! 73 degrees with steady winds of 12 mph. I tried the EXP 01 ball today and quite liked it. Long off the tee and good spin in and around the greens. The cover is interesting because it feels good and spins well but the Titleist font looks like it's a cheaper ball. That was literally my only complaint. It handled the wind well and felt great off the putter. Putter was hot today but I was hitting it closer to the hole too - hit 77.8% of my greens with an average of 17.7 feet

  22. Continuing to work on the drills from my lessons a few Sundays ago. A better takeaway should help transform the rest of my swing and be easier on my body. It's amazing how simple some things can be....and how our bodies want to go back to what's familiar, yet not ideal for great performance and scores. 2019 wasn't a year of good golf or practice for me. I'm planning 2020 will be! Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk

  24. Well, Cam’s currently playoff eligible so I’d say that’s his prerogative. In the broader sense, no there’s not a way to lock eliminated teams from making moves until the playoffs begin. Also, not sure if you noticed, but they worked in your recommendation to allow filtering on the transactions history page to view whichever division you desire. Pretty nice add and thanks for throwing it out there.

  31. As people have said, everyone wants something different. For both me and my daughter, I want path and face to path. That's pretty much it. I come from too far inside, she tends to get outside. We've both had too much access to Trackman; we're spoiled frankly. Cry me a river, I know. It's nice that access is free for her and cheap for me. Convenience would be nice, but driving 30 minutes to get downtown won't kill me. For all of you that belong to a private club, I'd lobby to take some lightly used space in the clubhouse, set up a couple of bays, and buy some high-quality LMs. A

  32. My dad, my daughter and I are playing the Gold Course at Golden Horseshoe this Sunday at 11:10. There's room for one more in our foursome, and the times after us look open as well. It's supposed to be mid-50s and partly sunny on Sunday in Williamsburg, and the 'Shoe is supposed to be in really good shape after the 2016 renovation. If you're interested, let me know!

  33. That just sounds painful. I cut through the end of my left index finger about 15 years ago and your injury just brings back memories of the pain. I hope it heals up soon and you can avoid bumping it on things until then. It's good to hear things are coming along as the doctors planned. Hopefully the pain will go away soon and you can get back to normal. Sent from my SM-N975U using MyGolfSpy mobile app

  37. Intent of use is the biggest evaluation point. I am not looking for spin or launch type numbers. I want to practice 100 and in to dial in my swing. For this I need accurate numbers. If the LM says 70 then it better be 70 on the course not 60 or 85. I want this indoors so I can use my balls to get dialed in. I don’t have a range that will let me put out cones or go retrieve my personal balls. Reminds me of what I saw at the Local LPGA event this past year. Danielle Kang was going to work on distance wedges and her Caddie has laid out cones and shot distances to her bag to put them i

  39. And we’ve reached the final week of the regular season. This league is definitely a sprint to the playoffs. Looks like we’re in for quite a circus of scenarios for playoff seeding. As a refresher, the top 6 in each division make the playoffs with the top 2 in each receiving first round byes. The top 8 in each still have a chance to make it. The only bye secured is @00sportsman as the #1 seed in Shooter and is the last team with a chance to eclipse the 20-win mark. Teams that are currently playoff eligible simply need to win 2 to get in. Due to the matchups, it appears that the 7 an

Struggled a little bit on the front sans a perfect 3 shot eagle. Hit it well on the back nine. It was one of those rounds where it felt like I didn't play great but upon reflection it was pretty solid.

At our course I'm a 9, my wife is a 20, and the lady playing with us is a 28. Our 4th player failed to show. Our team hcp for the 3 of us was 7.9.

  45. Went to the range today to get in some work with my irons and to spend time practicing my short game. I haven't been able to play in over a month, but have been trying to take advantage of my range pass to keep sharp. I have a tentative round next weekend with a couple of buddies, and one of them can absolutely blow by me off the tee. His short game isn't as good, so I figure an advantage in that part of the game can't do anything but help me. I had pretty good results results on the range, I'm starting to see more of a high, piercing ball flight compared to my stock shot that looks like an a

  46. I have to admit, I was a little surprised when we went year-round in VA. Course conditions in most places in January are nothing like they are in April. But, it's a nice way to push out some good mid-season scores and push my index up a shot or so before the weather gets good.
