  3. I played with my brother yesterday at my home course. I shot 39/39 for 78. He decided he wanted to play another 9 since we moved right along and finished in a little over 3 hrs. I shouldn't have. It was 89* and humid. I shot 46 on the 3rd 9. 27 holes is too much in that kind of heat.

For all of those interested my name is Mark Lacasse and I had the good fortune of being able to test these PING G710’s! I play in the North East where the golf season is beautiful…but short…I have been playing since I was very young but since 2014 after I got out of the military have been playing avidly (and in every sense of the word AVIDLY).

  6. It was Holiday golf this weekend... well, I took a "holiday" on 4 of the 36 holes, that is. It was classic social golf as my wife and I were playing with another couple for both days. I tried to focus on shots, but too much conversation flowing. Oh well, it was fun... sorta. Saturday's play: 84 with one birdie and... a 9 on a par 5 and a 7 on a par 4. No, on the par 5 I didn't hit OB. No, I didn't find any penalty areas. No, I wasn't in any trees. No, I wasn't in any bunkers. No, I didn't 3+ putt. So how did I end up with a quad? By taking 7 shots to get to the green.

  7. 79 41/38 1 birdie/11 pars 12 GIRs / 9 FIRs 36 putts (4 3 putts...) I played at RTJ Oxmoor Valley Ridge course. Very pleased with my driving and irons. I just couldn’t gauge the speed on the greens. I kept leaving putts short. I even left an eagle and a birdie putt short on the same hole....frustrating. I’ve been on a nice run of low to breaking 80 over the last 6-7 rounds. Hoping to keep it up!

  8. What a baby Bryson was being. Hurting his brand? Give me a break. It’s not like this cameraman was a paparazzi staking him out in front of his house trying to capture him in a “gotcha” moment. I’ve was a cameraman on the field of NFL games for over 10 years, did MLB sometimes too. My job is to capture the moments that tell the story of the sporting contest on the field. The good, the bad, the wins, the losses. I am not worried about a players “brand”. The cameraman is capturing the moment, the producers in the sat truck are the ones telling you in your ear what shots to get, they de

  9. Today could have been the round I have been waiting for my whole life. Instead it was just a career best 77 (39/38). I managed to play the whole round without making any putt over 6' today. I did have 2 3 putts which was disappointing to say the least especially the way I have been putting with the Lucky D lately. What did show up today was the Proto X driver. I found 9/14 fairways and was bombing it all day. I had multiple drives of over 300 leaving quite a few 50/60 yards pitches into greens. I was even pin high on 2 of the par 4 off the tee. I did manage 2 birdies today but they were g

  10. I could not hit the ball at all. At all. Top it, chunk it, toe it, shank it. Putting was great. Picked up after 8 on most holes. On hole 14 I realized I was wearing my reading glasses. Took them off and finished with 3 pars and 2 bogeys. Still shot a 110. I may wear them for putting now though. Sigh.

  11. Hey guys, first time tester here. I’m really looking forward to testing the Align XL balls and putting them in play. I originally asked to put the Snell MTB-X ball in play, but the site only had yellow colored golf balls. Unfortunately any color golf ball besides white just doesn’t fit my eye right. So, I decided to go with the trusty Titleist Pro V1 golf balls as seen below. I got inspiration for my personalization from Frankie Borrelli over at Barstool Sports and the Fore Play Pod. Frankie is terrible with a wedge in his hand. He tries to convince himself that he is th

  12. Sure. Yes, I identify a target standing behind the ball and determine how I want the ball to fly (generally play a straight to slight draw ball flight). I walk up, set my club pointing in the direction I want to start the ball, take my stance, and prepare to hit the ball. So to that point we have done the same thing. I have heard that described as soft focus; what I am talking about would be hard focus. This is something I do very consistently with my pitches, chips, and putts. During those preshot I identify the general area I want to land the ball or the line I want the ball to ro

  13. I have never used Arccos so I can't make an experienced comparison with Shot Scope. But needing to have my phone in my pocket or anywhere on me is a deal breaker for Arccos. I imagine that is the same for most of the female golfer market. A few of my golf skirts have a pocket but not always in the front. And the front pockets that I do have are much too small for a phone. I leave my phone in my bag. The ease of wearing the Shot Scope watch is all I need.

  16. Bryson...so much going on with this guy. He's great for the tour from the standpoint of enhancing the entertainment value of the product. That he's doing it his way, in a lot of ways (one length, bulking up), is laudable and certainly makes him an athlete I'll continue to follow and pay attention to. As to the cameraman incident...let's just say I was less than impressed. One, the cameraman literally did his job. I guarantee he'd have been in hot water if he had said to himself "oh, he's upset, better not follow him." At the end of the day, Bryson wanted to NOT be held accountabl

  17. I used my V3 for the first time today. The watch was 64% charged right out of the box and took about 20 minutes to reach 100%. Setup was quick last night. I spend approx. 45 minutes total for the download, sync and replace V2 tags with the new ones. Most of that time was spent engineering a workaround to install the tag on my putter and new driver. My putter has a weight at the top of the grip so I've always added my putts after my rounds instead of attaching the tag with glue. I decided with my V3 I would figure out how to make it work on my putter. Following another spy's idea I u

  25. This is a good point. I have liked Bryson sine he came on Tour, he isn't my favorite, but generally I like most Tour Players unless they prove themselves to be a big "Richard" There is no doubt if it was Patrick Reed that did this, I along with many others would probably be leading the pitchfork brigade. Now Bryson doesn't have a history of this type thing, from what I know, so I'll give him a pass with a slight shake of my head, and hope he reflects on the whole thing, both how he reacted to the cameraman, and his "explanation" in the press conference that was so contradictory in so m

  27. I went with the Bridgestone Tour B RX - with the "GO 2 UR HOME" from the movie happy gilmore .. I will have a round or two that I just cant make the putts and always right on the edge. So out of nowhere when I started to line up my ball for the putt I would just say to myself alright baby time to go home.... (still missed the putt ). For the testing one of my may concerns will be if the align print will hold up with being hit by the other clubs in the bag. I usually put a red line on my ball and sometimes I get to the green and the line is all messed up from wear and tear of the round.

  28. I also read that he literally broke shot link, as shots that land within 30 yards of the green are automatically calculated as an approach shot, so he loses his stats--unless they are able to manually adjust it--for those drives that land near the green.

  29. Great stuff so far @cnosil, I'm really enjoying how you're breaking down each goal you want to achieve and how you're implementing a plan to achieve each goal. As someone who struggles with both alignment and low point, it'll be educational to see how you tackle those problems. I've seen the drill with foot spray, but have never used it, you just inspired me to give it a go. Best of luck to you in this journey!

  34. Checking in after the long weekend. As a Cobra fan, it was nice to see Bryson win the Rocket Mortgage. I'm sure we all noticed his red alignment aid on his ball. Well done. For me, I've opted to go with the Srixon Z STAR XV in yellow. That has been my sole gamer this year and I have a decent stockpile of unmarked balls of the same make and model to do some comparison tests. I'm going with black ink, as the ball already has enough color for me. Should give it more of a look of being produced by the manufacturer. If you are familiar with match play, you know "Good - Good" is ofte

  35. Blog post dropped this morning.... https://mygolfspy.com/shotscope-v3-gps/ So I've used V3 for three rounds so far. Overall, functionality is very similar to V2 - the occasional missing shots (I hit one from under a tree that somehow didn't get picked up, another one from the woods did - go figure). Editing remains very easy, and I do like the Provisional/Penalty/Lost ball feature on the watch - makes the editing easier. A note - if you've never used a shot tracking system, there WILL be post round editing. It's not hard, but plan on it for every round. As others have men

  36. I really loved the Motore X F3 shaft during my extended time reviewing it. However, after multiple rounds with the Ventus Red, it just feels like cheating. I've learned that I can swing hard and more often than not, the ball ends up in the fairway. I have to try really hard with the Ventus to hit a bad shot, like swinging out of my shoes and falling over hard (but even some of those ended up good). The one difference that I have found between the Ventus and any other shaft is that with other shafts, the ball will occasionally draw and occasionally fade. With the Ventus, its always po

  37. I’m in the camp that Bryson has a better idea of what he needs in his bag than we or any other commentator does. I’m fairness to Faldo he did acknowledge that shaft manufacturers and other equipment experts might disagree with his statement. It’s also easy to arm chair it and say that he should consider traditional wedge shaft lengths. In fact I’ve said that. Reading this thread makes me realize how wrong I am. Any change would take time to implement. The guy is on a roll doing it his way. Why i the world should he change a thing right now? Also I’m sure that he had to put so much en

  40. For me there are 2 that I consistently stuff up. As you can see this course is tight and there is not a flat/level lie on any hole. The second at Morack is a 467M Par 5 Dog leg to the left at 220M. I either get a 4-5 or an 8-9. However the killer hole for me is the 14th which is straight up hill 342M Par 4 Rated 1 because it is OB on the Right. Should be easy but if I am going to loose concentration it is on this hole.

  42. My regular group wasn't able to play today so I took that as an opportunity to hit the range. Need some better foot powder since ground/grass impact rubbed everything off making it hard to determine exact impact. Some of the key things that seem to significantly impact my results: Backswing length. Too long and fats/off center seem to be more in play Alignment. I have a tendency to setup closed which seems to bring more pushes/pull hooks into play. Aim identification. Occasionally i had the tendency to not lock a target into my mind before swinging.

  43. I'm not sure of the exact yardage from the whites. I'm pretty sure it plays in the 360-370 range, but hole #13 at our league course is definitely in my head. On paper, I don't think it looks terribly hard, but I guess there's a reason it's the #3 handicap. Hitting the fairway is a must to have a realistic shot at par. Even then, you have to hit it far enough or favor the right side to not be blocked by the trees on the left (opposite the trees near the cart path on the right). I can count the number of times I've hit the fairway on a few fingers, which immediately brings bogey into

  44. If you play the hole as intended it would be a 200 yard tee shot to center of the fairway and dog leg with a flat lie. If you hit the ball to the 150 yard marker your next shot plays 2 to 3 clubs more due to the elevation and bunkers guarding the front. So you really need to play 180 and be able to hit a high ball. I dont hit a high ball typically. If you play more club you fly the green. It is a short green front to back. The green also slopes from back to front. Our greens roll at a 10 to 12. If you go long and chip on, your all the way to the front and have a 2 putt. Most members of our cl

  45. Ok, I have been using the system for a couple of years. You cannot see the score ongoing nor at the end of the round until synced. It detects pretty well but I would say it averages 1-5 missed shots a round (out of an average score for me of 80 so 5/80 is about a 5-6% error rate.) This however is not as terrible as you might think. Remember that as you go through the round to verify on the dashboard later, it is showing you an overlay of the course on each shot you hit. This jogs your memory very well and I have no problem realizing that I didn't hit it 380 yards on hole #7 and that it

Saturday - 40/46 = 86 (+14) - 8/15 FIR - 9/18 GIR - 37 Putts (2 3-putts, 15 2-putts, 1 1-putt) Not a lot to say about this round other than I didn't strike anything well and I let my emotions get the best of me. Although I held it together on the front, I three-putted No. 11 and then hit my tee shot OB left on No. 12 and pretty much mentally quit. I was pretty frustrated with myself after the round because looking at the card I could have easily shot an 83 had I just not quit on the round.
