  1. Feeling pretty proud of myself. Started (officially) in a new role this week, and my employer did a profile of me for their social media. https://www.facebook.com/BarwonHealth/?__tn__=kC-RH-R&eid=ARAM9FnQGbF_0tlqymNm0OgThfbIjedKhQLVVIS-NOpyXyU7TTKrUV41USdOiOmHCFbwgoFgGncs4iK5&hc_ref=ARRF-kWeHEZBdclHK_YFfwSFSdHONt_nZkGqMWt0oaCrzKSDXLwdf1kCFn-lP2zdPpg&fref=nf&__xts__[0]=68.ARCfAXTPwDgvSdVadumGuDy78KB_Z1WjCH6xdnb2FixGFvaapLcvpNbICqTBmcLJumUVMEy5vQvZWsL9nyc9mwa4LGqmC8Sd7hIGVwYbrTJg-tac1P4jy8gxb2bD08dYLBXATOqOH7OnhUtigp8XOOduuB6q8IbmYidSRgbN914pTyRoKToyPnDmBatDtS8Xwc8iyS6Tr74Lh2d4SJdVsm4lWB-nPz5TnwGHt4sPIygMwdVDKRGGtRYNjHhohtCq8bhQfoW0IEWtVlwoWCBEAFfE38YSdMqBixGNj2kIezF6kOaK3w8hq7WHfSMPVqX6hnEyg3HBAi_280Nqebm-EGjhwPg2zwMoxwm1cQg5sOgqzXw Apart from me not thinking my hair is as red as the picture, I'm pretty pleased with how it came up.

  2. Got out for 18 today and more B X testing. 36/47 for an 83 8/14 FiR 10/18 GiR 34 Putts After playing even on the front with 2 birds and 2 bogeys and feeling really good. I hooked one OB onto the street on #11 for a quad, and tripled #16. What a dumb hobby, haha!

  3. I’ll be tied up for the next week. I still owe you guys some stuff on the Blueprints. What I’m currently dealing with at work has occupied almost every day of the week since December 1. Was expecting to be done today, only to run into a bigger, more problematic issue. I can’t defeat this dang thing yet. Nearly there, so for now, please accept my apology for slacking lately.

  5. Played my first round for 3 weeks, weather was a bit of a challenge, with light drizzle making it particularly difficult to judge the speed on the green. Shot 12 over, highlights were making bogey after hitting my tee shot OOB and holing a bunker shot (unfortunately it was for par) Drove ok, with 2 bad drives that cost me shots, and irons were pretty solid. I really need to get out on the course more.

  6. Played 18 today and continued to see a lot of what I've been seeing: Ball seems a little longer Doesn't feel as "sticky" around the greens as a V1X What I also noticed today is it seems like a more "boring" or flat flight compared to V1X. I was 2' from an ace from 165 out, probably would've guaranteed a spot in my bag if that happened. Felt like a jerk because the guy we played with hit one to 4' right before that, and I put it inside of his, whoops!

  8. Okay, my fitting visit at the TPI Training Institute is scheduled for March 13. They have been very accommodating and I am looking forward to the trip. I plan to get some rounds in before the visit so I will be ready for the fitting.

  9. I personally don't see a debate. What's there to debate? If you like playing a white ball so be it. (I do) If you prefer anything else - have at it. A debate might be approprite if perhaps the USGA were banning the white ball or a colored one. But they're not. Carry on and have a nice day.

  11. Yup. Drivers, woods, hybrids and irons were 5 years. Wedges were 3 years. No mention of putter in the contract. That being said - if the purchase is funded by gift cards and selling two extra clubs I have laying around, then it's no money out of pocket either

  12. I gotta say, for winter time this place is great. I get to hit balls, work on distance control and ball contact. This got me to thinking. How do the Topgolf balls compair to my Bridgestone TourB RX???? I the spirit of"Find it cut it", as I was leaving one day I happened upon a wayward ball out in the street. Size and weight were exactly the same as my Bridgestone. So I just had to cut it open, here's what I found...

  13. ... I think I posted this earlier but it is worth repeating. The "new" ball spins less off woods enabling players to hit it higher and farther. The old 4/5 woods with the higher spinning ball launched high with a lot of spin and could balloon or just lose distance compared to a 3 wood. Of course high swing speed players can still take advantage of todays 3 wood because even with lower spin, they can launch it high enough to maximize performance. But slower swing speed may not be able to launch a 3 wood high enough with a lower spinning ball and they can maximize distance with a higher launching 4/5 wood and can hit it even farther than a 3 wood.

  17. For me at least the comparison to a current phone app would be ideal, particularly image overview of the hole between the two and any differences on distances. If you do the comparison please let us the the app and phone you were using. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy

  19. How long have you been playing golf? Since 1977, when I was 17. What’s your handicap or normal score? Averaged 41 this years in a 9 hole league, 75 is good, 85 is bad. What do you love about golf? Out-driving my brother. What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Saw it on Youtube. Do you already know any other Spies? No Where are you from? Rochester, MI What is your home course? Don't really have one, but I play at Copper Hills, Stoney Creek, Blackheath, Pine Valley, Glacier, Orchards, Greystone What are the best and worst things about golf in your region? Great, plush fairways but slow greens. Then there is the weather, which is bad from Dec-March. What do you do for a living? PLC Programmer, who is at the end. How’d you pick your user name? Slow is how I walk up stairs, low for my stomach. Has nothing to do with my takeaway with the driver. This is Carl's Golfland, a few years back, this is how some of us practice golf in December.

  22. Must have had an “Alien Possession”. After a couple weeks of dismal play shot 3 over 1 double & 1 bogie. I switched out the G410 irons and replaced with the Mizzies. It wasn’t the irons fault just from tempo & swing plain. No bacon for me this morning!! Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

  25. Okay we are back in the rainy season here in Georgia so I thought I'd do an update. First off the suit is holding up well no rips, tears or other issues, in fact, it still looks brand new. I wear the jacket everywhere when it's raining out and still find it very comfortable. I wore the pants as pants for the first time 2 weeks ago, previously I had worn them over golf shorts, and they were quite comfortable. We played on a particularly swampy day and a few swings threw mud all over me, which easily washed off with wet cloth after the round. So almost a year later still loving the Galway Bay rain suit!

  26. Dang, Joe got called-out! I thought the same thing, but wasn’t gonna do him like that! He did put in his post that Stockton says one should have multiple putters, so I’m sure his contract with the wifey stated that in an addendum.... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

  30. Wanted to share a recent article about this very topic. Having played another round with the Align XL, I think I fall into the non-linear putting category... however, that's no knock on the line, it's durability, or implementation! https://www.golf.com/instruction/putting/2020/01/31/line-on-golf-ball-i-tried-it/ Torture test forthcoming as well, in the vein of Mythbusters

  31. For what you could pay for a new driver spending $200+ for a high quality leather head over could seem like a bargain. Also consider the headcover will probably outlast numerous drivers over its lifespan.

  33. "After my fitting at True Spec and now having complete piece of mind about my golf equipment, I signed a contract with my wife. I literally typed up something. No buying any new golf clubs for 5 years (until I'm 40)." Are we saying putters aren't golf clubs????

  36. _1580.JPG] I’ve decided to try hitting balls some during this round of SuperSpeed workouts. The first time I didn’t have my radar with - this time I did. Looks like me speed is coming back as this is where I was at on the radar after my second jump. As a reminder I was at 84.5 on track an when I was a part of the G400 driver fitting group in the Spring of 2018. Since then I’ve been in a fitness program - lost 40 plus pounds that I’ve kept off, done the SuperSpeed test but also gotten two years older at a time of life when it matters (I’m now 63 and a half). Granted the radar measures a bit faster than trackman but this drive was a bomb (for me) - I wish that I had my Swing Caddie with - I was hitting past a flag that was 241 with very little wind.

  37. Take. The. Over. I was thinking Rahm...Sun Devil...but I thought Spieth made some really good swings this week and could ride that out. Besides, the fans love him.

  38. Yeah, I have zero interest in spending $2000 on getting numbers that are “close” to realistic. The purpose of a “simulator”, to me, is to get accuracy in my numbers so when I go play I know my distances. It doesn’t do me any good to use these then have different distances I’m hitting shots on-course. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

  40. Had another lesson on Friday and am very happy with where my swing is heading. We made a few tweaks to my takeaway, which means a few new swing thoughts to juggle for me, but the results were pretty staggering. When I started in November my path was very left, it's now 2-4 degrees right with a 7 iron. Toward the end of the lesson I was even hitting a bunch of baby draws right on the target line with a face-to-path of about -1.5. Pretty cool! Anyway, we've had a ton of snow dumped on us this weekend, so I couldn't get to the range to work more on the changes, but I took the time today to spend about an hour hitting foam balls in my 38 degree garage while on camera. I had so-so success, but by the end I was lining everything up correctly. Getting the change to feel natural is going to take some time, hopefully I can get out to the range again next weekend. The weather seems to always get worse over the weekends!

  41. Is it a TruGolf system with the three IR light gates in the floor? If so, I would be tempted to believe the club head speed. It will be a calculation, albeit a simple one, as the lights are presumably a known distance apart so all the system has to do is measure the time between light gates and calculate speed. I suppose it's possible that lights are not the correct distance apart, in which case any errors are going to be amplified at higher speeds.

  42. Have had a SkyTrak for about a month now and for the most part absolutely love it. Havent bit the bullet on forking out more cash for a sim package like TGC yet though. Love the range features it offers and bag mapping. Looking forward to diving into the Wedge matrix here soon as well. 2nd child on the way later this month, so my spring golfing (and probably summer) will be limited but this will help get the swings in!

  43. Very interesting. I am also keeping an eye out on new monitors that come out. Skytrak is currently at the top of the list, but I'm surprised there hasn't been an update to that technology. Seems like the sub $500 range has expanded more and more, but there is not a lot of competition in the mid level. By that I mean, monitors beneath your super professional level trackman or GCQuad types.

  44. It's an old thread, but just in case anyone trips over this post... the Arccos sensors don't analyze your swing like Swingbyte or Zepp. They track shots and analyze your game. I've had Arccos for well over a year now and I love it, but it does not do what Swingbyte or Zepp do.

  45. I recently bought this analyzer - Arccos Caddie Smart Sensors. The advantage of this analyzer is that it fits most clubs, which is very good for me because I often test different clubs. Also pleased that his battery is designed for five years. I do not know how true this is, but the manufacturer claims that it is real. I decided to buy such an analyzer because most of the reviews about it are mostly positive, and the price pleased me.

  47. As a novice golfer I am looking for a swing analyzer. The Zepp 2 and SwingByte both seem like good options that are still supported. Zepp has two advantages - ease in switching clubs and ease in a quick interpretation. I have this belief that SwingByte will be more accurate for speeds and club face due to its' placement on the club. I will be using an android phone but I don't believe that I will try to download instructional video at the driving range or course. What compelling reason is there to choose one over the other? Are there any sensors that go on the end of a club that are actively supported and full featured like Zepp and SwingByte?
