  2. Hopped on the ShotScope bandwagon since it was $119 for Cyber Monday. On my small wrists, the band is huge. I have it to the smallest clasp and still need to move it up my forearm a bit for it to be secure. Very light, however, and in taking some practice swings I can tell it won't bother me at all. Excited to get it out on the course! I didn't hate my GAME Golf Live, but their stats were lacking, and I have the feeling they may not be around much longer.

  6. It's the subscription that ultimately turned me off to Arccos. I think it's probably "best of breed," but I also didn't want to wait for Link to be ready. I hadn't considered the extra shot thing because GG Live required tagging so you didn't have to worry about it. On the flip side, I'm really excited for the PinCollect feature because GG Live had no such thing. It forced your to go back and correct pin locations post-round.

  7. Really enjoy mine. The size was a little bit to get used to, but after a handful of rounds, I don't even notice anymore. The thing to get used to is tapping for pin location and if you hit an extra shot/putt, having to go back and fix that. Sidenote... You can use the "provisional shot" option if you want to hit an extra full swing shot... And then just say "ball not lost". Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk

  9. Played Magnolia today with my son in what will be my last round of the year. Shot an even par 72 from the back tees and it was an up and down day. I shot even par on the front and didn’t make a par until the 9th hole...four birds and four bogies on the first 8 holes in alternating order (not sure I have ever done that). Then for good measure I finished the round with 10 straight pars for what was a good way to end the year. Overall the swing is there, ball flight is where I want it to be and working the ball both ways. My goal over the winter is to work on the putting and getting more comfort

  12. Been sucking lately with rounds at 88, 89, 92, etc. so I reached back into my closet and pulled out: Wilson Triton Driver, PowerBilt Air Force One 3W, 5W, 3H & 4-PW, AW & SW. The only club I did not change was my Evnroll ER-6 putter. Shot 86 on Tuesday then shot 40/41:81 today. Guess I’ll be gaming the Wilson and PowerBilt this weekend! Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy

  14. Got that backward. Heavier in the toe slows the rotation and keeps the putter a bit open to the path which will cause more of a right miss.

  15. Did another SP workout practice session after today. My doctor approved CBD oil or cream for use although she said the oil brings mixed results where as the cream always works for arthritis pain. So I went cream. Happy to report I’m pain free after the workout and way more balls than I originally intended because I felt good and wanted to hit some balls while tired. I’ve walked the last couple of times that I’ve played so I walked from the car to the back range - that’s 3 solid holes and then back in - plus I walked around between my last series of shots - I did 5 sequences of driver, 7

  16. In a world where everybody seems to give a non-descript answer to every question, I think it was nice to hear a glimpse of what Reed was actually thinking. Just about everything that people are saying about the incident and him wouldn’t change no matter what his answer was. He never denied doing it on purpose, he only disagreed with the penalty cuz he didn’t see it as improving his lie. Also to those that think the penalty should have been more, I hope you realize that it cost him the win and $750k. I don’t condone cheating by any stretch but we only have 1 camera angle and a Mans word to

  18. That's exactly what I'm thinking. If I miss short four times a round and I can change that to two with no improvement in ball striking, that's a win for me. Thanks to OP for getting me thinking about this.

  19. Even pros struggle with front pin locations. We rarely hit the ball perfectly pure and to what we believe is our distance with each club. What your shot pattern shows is a nice little spread. Move the center of that spread up a few yards and now you aren’t missing so many greens short. [emoji1363] Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

  20. Here are my approach stats: I'm thinking of adopting the following strategy: Front pin - Hit one club more than the yardage to the pin. This should usually be middle of the green with a good shot, pin high if I miss it a little bit. I should really never miss short. Middle pin - Hit one club more than the yardage to the pin, unless my normal (not best) shot with that club will put me over the green and in trouble. I'll be interested to see if I really hit the ball past the hole all that much. Back pin - Play the yardage to the pin or slightly shorter if I'm between

I figure 10x the amount of work and headache will be thrown on my plate. I am extremely honored for the position, but I feel my on course time has automatically been cut in half. I’ll try to keep everything updated,try is the key word here. I feel bad for not participating as much as I would like on here, please forgive me. I’ve never had this kind of responsibility before, at 32 years old, and 2 small kids,

  28. I'm with @chisag and @cnosil on this one. If your current irons are a terrible fit, there might be some good gains with a properly fit set. If your main issues are with the indian and not the arrow, then Sub70 looks like a great option to have some fun with some new irons without breaking the bank. If you fit well into some of the stock shafts, they are a steal. Even with some of their more expensive shaft upgrades you are looking at prices below a new set of Hogans and practically half of a similar set of big brand OEMs. Oh my stars....the 699 Pros are on the website...I might be get

  31. This is good advice for 5-handicappers too, at least until you get inside short-iron range. You want the bulk of your misses to be on the green, if you can. If you start aiming at tucked pins, you don't have to miss by much to be off the green. Most of us are much better off 60 feet away and putting (10 yard pull after aiming at the middle of the green) than 30 feet and chipping (10 yard push, aiming at the flag). Say you get up and down 30% of the time, pretty decent for an "average" golfer, so 70% you'd take 3 strokes when chipping. Will you 3-putt 70% of the time?

  33. Yep and those are the good Tour Forged ones too> I have a set of Hogan Grinds that have a Legend 3 or 4 shaft that need a good home> I can not hit them anymore because they are too stiff for my back. I will dig them out after Christmas and will also look and see if I have a spare Muirfield PW---- And the price on the Grinds will be right as in Free. I would rather see them played and enjoyed instead of gathering rust and dust in the recesses of my shop. But we will get together after Christmas because I have 3 programs to run on the sound board at church plus a wedding to do this Saturda

  34. Utah was a paper tiger that got utterly exposed for what they were last night. The talking heads build some teams up to be much more than they are to keep viewership. It’s a sham! Until they form a playoff similar to D1-AA, we will continue to be force fed media created paper tigers. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

  36. I own a townhome in Augusta and rent it out for the Masters. During that period I basically make my entire years mortgage. While a LPGA event is certainly not the masters I would still give it a try. I recommend VRBO and or AirBnB. Don’t let the bad news stories scare you.

  40. Great advice. As I look back on 2019, the days I played well I did a bunch of stretches at home (I'm only 10 min away from our #1) and played conservatively on our #1 which has water and bunkers to temp an aggressive shot. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy

  43. I had the same thought as @tony@CIC, I'd like to throttle my driver sometimes. But I know the shot you mean. I'll consciously try to take a 3/4 backswing, with kind of limited wrist angle, and almost try a hockey slapshot. No feeling of releasing the clubhead, just rotate through with my normal body movement. I like it when I don't need huge distance, especially into the wind where a solid 3-wood has the potential to balloon and go anywhere. Tee it low, and be sure to rotate your torso. And of course, practice it on the range before you try it on the course. Same with driver off the

  44. I'd agree. Targeting the pin doesn't happen that often on tour let alone for a player who isn't scratch. Want to test the theory? Place a ball in the middle of the green and putt. Then record your score with the assumption that you hit the green in regulation. I have my women's team do this for 9 holes. Their score from the middle of the green is always better or the same as their regular score and very often they shoot par with the middle of the green approach. Want to take a guess how many of my players average right around par? Hmmm.... Ego and emotion are tough opponents.

  45. Played this last weekend in my members handicap association club championship. There were two flights,( A flight 0-9 HC and B flight 10-26 HC ). Being a 15 HC at my club is was in the B flight. Two day tournament with daily gross and net payouts and the bulk of winnings going to overall low gross and net winners. Day one I shot an unspectacular 89 ( 74 net ) struggling mightily with my approach shots but didn't play myself out of the tourney by virtue of reasonable driving and good putting. Day two again I struggled with my irons. But my driving was really good 8/13 fairways and

I honestly don't expect much difference when compared to the F9 on center hits but will be very interested in seeing how the Extreme performs on mishits with the fully milled face. I already have the F9 low spin 9* option so I want to give the more forgiving high MOI Extreme an extended review.

  49. I’ve come full circle with this - when i started playing very few courses had ranges - you showed up, put your ball on the rack, waited your turn and tee’d off when the starter called you up to the tee. As newer courses were built ranges were included and pre-children (early 80’s) I started warming up. Once I had children I went through a transitional period where I learned to just show up and play again. You need to develop a simple stretching routine to get loose from the truck to the first tee, 3 or 4 chips and putts would be helpful (way more important than hurt balls.) You could actu
