  1. Unfortunately, I’ve not had any AHA moments with my Cobra’s like my fellow competitors. That said, I’m in the middle of a swing “rebuild” and I’m starting to see signs of improvement. So I’m very hopeful for the future. The bright spot the last few weeks has definitely been the 3 wood off the deck. I have a lot more confidence going into par 5s now!

  2. DRAFT NEWS FROM LAST NIGHT So last night was the first of our four drafts, and all things considered it went pretty smoothly. Only one real incident where I needed to step in and pause things, but as always we continue to learn and evolve to get better. So here's where we're at going into my draft on Sunday as next one up. 1) First, let me introduce @Shankster as the newest team owner in the Stud division. Last night led to one owner quitting the league and walking out midway through the draft due to an unforeseen issue. Luckily we had a guy who was willing to roll with the punches a

  3. As the Orange Whip is $110, I selected the Club Champion Flex Swing Trainer for $40.....found it on Maplehillgolf.com. Figured at my age anything to help flexibility is going to be a plus.

  4. My wife and I made a conscience decision to not play at our course on Saturdays until it gets colder and fewer people show up. Saturdays are very busy and slow. We always played on the weekend because until last October, my wife worked at her business, and the weekends were the only time she could play 18 holes. Now that she is "retired", we can play any day but we were still playing on Saturday and Sunday. Sundays are not very busy, so we will keep that day to play with our working buddies, but we decided to play today instead of Saturday. We were joined by two retired guys from my c

  6. Appreciate the insight and follow-up @Berg Ryman You are a very fine commish. Just want to reiterate.... this is for F-U-N ... no money involved. Please keep that in mind if you don't get 'your guys'. If you want to play competitively there are loads and loads and loads of options; we've been doing it on here for years and guys always have fun doing it. If you're not that type, that's fine; no hard feelings. We're using this to continue to bring the community together - especially as winter sets in and golfing opportunities for some of us are harder to come by. Now - let's h

  8. Not well.... One of my higher scoring rounds in a looooong time. Put myself into trouble off the tee, had trouble on the second shots and most disappointingly had a lotta trouble putting. There was a bright spot, though -- had a few punch outs and recovery shots, and one short approach, with wedges that I hit pretty well. Have another lesson scheduled for tomorrow!

  9. I was a guest at the club and my member buddy told me to give him a hundred bucks so I did. I think the going rate for the caddie is $70 so it was a $30 tip. I had to fix my divots as well which I kind of expected him to do but I guess my expectations are established by what I see on TV watching the pros. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

  17. Alright guys, I'm back. So after that day I reported there was some soreness in my shoulders and hips on the lateral sides, but nothing like it normally is after I play that much. In regard to the gummies, I definitely feel like I go to sleep easier but the side effect is some crazy dreams. I'm not normally a huge dreamer or can remember what my dreams are but since I started taking those gummies at night, my dreams have been highly vivid and outright strange lol. I also typically wake up in the middle of the night for whatever reason, and again right before my alarm goes off but I'v

  18. It was a pretty quick change i'd say. Within minutes. I mean, i'm usually a relatively calm guy as it is, but wasn't really tired last night. I was going to not take the full recommended dose, but figured, I'd go for it and tweak it as I go along in the testing. Took the dose, which helped stop my mind from racing and relaxed me. Closed my eyes and next thing i knew my alarm was going off. I've been waking up 1 or 2 times a night recently, first time i slept all the way through in a while. Either that or my wife didn't kick me in her sleep last night

  21. This years team name is my best by far. I feel bad that whoever I am replacing had a less than desirable experience with the FF draft. Please do not let that discourage you from participating in the forums, we still appreciate your contribution. Without further ado, The ReShankments will be going 16-0.

  22. I just took the dose straight. Over this week, I'll play around with putting it in tea/coffee, or even see if in a glass of water would taste alright and effect the way it affects me. (I never know which effect/affect to use, freaking grammar) But by itself, was great.

  23. After not getting to sleep till late into the night, thanks to playoff hockey OT, I took a full 1ml dose to see if it makes any difference in tiredness the next morning. Woke up at 630 this morning to get ready for work, after falling asleep around 12-1230. It's only one night, and can't say if it attributed it to anything per se, but I feel like I'm the most well rested i've been in a while. I don't have any apps or fitness bands to get solid data, but I do feel better than I have in some time. I'm going to keep using it for a week, see how productive I am, and then take a week off, see if my

  27. Going in later today for the second lesson with my new coach (the one I started with retired) ... and what was most interesting about our first lesson together was he quickly focused in on a few basic fundamentals, that either I'd not been properly taught before or had totally forgotten about / moved away from (the more likely scenario LOL!). For example, he showed me a still frame from the DTL vid cam showing my setup and asked me where my weight in my feet was -- and (even I could see LOL again!) it was clearly back in my heels, with too-straight knees plus a hunched-over back ... all i

  28. A businessman was attending a conference in Africa. He had a free day and wanted to play a round of golf and was directed to a golf course in the nearby jungle. After a short journey, he arrived at the course and asked the pro if he could get on. "Sure," said the pro, "What's your handicap?" Not wanting to admit that he had an 18 handicap, he decided to cut it a bit. "Well, it's 16," said the businessman. "But what's the relevance since I'll be playing alone" "It's very important for us to know," said the pro, who then called a caddy. "Go ou

  29. I am undecided on MPF. I really like the idea of being able to compare clubs based on the fundamental geometry but think there are some flaws with MPF making assumptions of what makes the best parameters are. The fundamentals are around helping golfers get the ball airborne like @Hook DeLoft mentions. Center of Mass is everything to MPF. Having a long blade with more weight on the toe side and low COG is optimal. Since the hosel is heavy and is not the club face it pulls a lot of weight away from the center of the face (where most believe is the center of mass) Use it as a basic gui

  31. The effects seemed to last several hours for me yesterday, but I'll continue to monitor as the review moves on. I'm keeping a journal to document which product I'm using, dosage, and timing, etc. to get a clear picture of the results. I did the same thing during my 10-day baseline period including golf rounds - how I felt/feel, time stamps for each hole so I can try to match Whoop data to certain shots and so forth.

  32. Kinda figured that would be the case. Through saliva/bloodstream is quicker with pretty much anything. I think I'd also like to compare if the delayed release by digestion would compare in overall feelings. Curious if there's a difference. Truth be told, I dabbled quite a bit in my college years into my mid-late 20s in the other part of the plant. And eating/smoking were definitely two different effects.

  33. Night two of using the gummies. While I did feel more tired and ready for bed generally, I had mild discomfort in my back and legs that made it difficult to sleep. Not a knock against the product, but if you're looking for a silver bullet to help you with sleep you need to temper expectations. The early results are about what I expected going into this review process. Still plenty of data to collect and share with you guys in the official review. I also used the sports cream on my calves yesterday. I did one pump per calf and massaged them for about 2 minutes each a few hours before worki

  34. @HardcoreLooper@ballplayer002003 @BMart519 @dlow206 Alright here is the final tally of my 31 days of swinging something 100+ times per day. 1st of august, I did 50 swings in the morning, 25 with different clubs and 25 with the Skiz gold flex.Played 18, shot an 86, it was a par 60 course, so it does not count on the breaking 90 category. Did another 50 practice swings in the afternoon, 20 with the gold flex, 30 with different irons and wedges. 2nd of august - 50 swings with the gold flex in the morning. 25 with the heavy 8 iron and 25 with the wedges in the afternoon.

  38. Nice range session today. 106 heat index so not a long one but every 8 iron was at and past the flags at 136 and 138. 6 iron was a bit short of the 172 flag. 5 iron remains the crap out club for me. When I hit it well, it went past 172, when I hit it poorly, it really sucked. 9 woods would all have been on the green, all right around that 172 carry but where they hit, they stayed. The key was getting my left hip open right after I put my left foot down. When I do that, I hit the ball beautifully Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

  39. Got in a full loop with the half set this afternoon. Top-to-bottom: Cobra S9-1 Pro 3-wood; Ben Hogan ICON 5/7/9 irons; Cleveland 588 49*/56*; Bobby Grace NYC Tour. 12/14 Fwy; 16/18 GIR; 32 Putts (-2) The breakdown on the other 38 shots: Hit the ICON 5-iron (7) times today... (8) counting my second shot on the opening Par-5 that directly smacked the high tension transmission line crossing the fairway and nearly landed at my feet. But I only hit one chippy 7-iron into the breeze from 150. (5) 9-irons all solid and inside 2 feet from 155 on the 18th. (12) 3-woods, all tee balls. (11) we

As if it was meant to be I had a tee time today at True Blue, where the Dresser Academy is located, and he's the only PXG fitter within 100 miles of me. A normal person would have gotten there early and gotten fitted before ordering... not me though. I placed my order (5-GW with the MMT regular over the phone after talking with the salesman first thing this morning... THEN I went and hit them. Turns out the PXG guy and I got it right. 2* strong worked great at the range (it seems these have similar specs to

  44. Shot of todays round was just a simple flop shot out of absolute crap patch grass, over an alligator filled lava river onto a 2 sq ft landing pad, that would fall off the side of the planet if hit a foot too long. I was so amazed that it worked that I dropped another ball and did it again. Probably couldn't hit that shot again in one hundred tries.

Mavric sub Zero !! hahaI don't know what crawled up my uhhh pants leg, because the SIM was a solid fairway finder, really solid. BUT, it wasn't any longer that my Ping G400LST. And that club was already a fairway finder. SOOOOOoooooo, Enter the MAV... we shall see if its longer as I have quite a few holes where Ive hit numerous solid drives, and I'll know if Im longer rather quickly.
