  1. Kirke was getting in some putting practice this morning, and was absolutely on fire: I wish I would have started the camera at the very beginning. He had 13 makes in a row to begin. One day, he'll get 18 for 18. I gotta see if I can beat him to it.

  2. My current setup is Driver, 14 degree 3 wood, and 18 degree 5 wood. I also have a 17 degree 2 iron and a 4 iron bent to 19 degrees. The 2 iron hasn't been in play since last spring and recently got a new shaft, but hasn't even been hit due to winter. The 4 iron is great for tighter holes off the tee. I am not crazy about the ball flight on the 4 iron from the fairway and on my home course, there are only one or two of the par fives that this even comes into play. I hit a fairway wood for position on par fives; with three of them being 600+ from the back tees, I'm rarely getting home in 2 anywa

  3. Top end of my bag is pretty set; I love my titleist hybrids and have no plans on getting anything to replace them or swap with them.

  5. Top end of the bag is on lock. However, I can say in the past I've been one to flip clubs in and out depending on course conditions and what I was trying to do that day. Can't say it helped me particularly, but that's a mindset I tried.

  6. Well, I just got a new driver and I'm replacing my 3 hybrid, but they're both the same lofts as what they're replacing, so I'd say, no, I don't swap.

  7. I haven't used it on course yet, but I have a 3-iron now that I will mostly likely use for certain situations in place of my hybrid. There's a par 3 at a course I frequent where a stock hybrid is usually too much and 4 iron isn't quite enough, but a 3-iron would be just right.

  8. I'm pretty set up there given my love/hate relationship with hybrids. I'll swap out the Mini Driver (ended last season with it in the bag) but for the most part I just stick with fairway woods.

  9. With the terrible inconsistency of my driver, I have been known to swap in my old Callaway 3W in the driver slot - it is a bit longer than the Bridgestone 3W, but a bit less accurate. Once I buy @MattF's M5 and I figure out which of the two shafts works better for me, all my driving woes will be over, right?

  10. @dlow206if you look for the bad in every swing, you’ll always find it. on the other hand, if you look for the good in every swing, you’ll always find it. try focusing on the great progress you’ve made and not the minor faults in each individual swing.

  17. Thanks guys. Changing the video angle to a proper dtl angle did make me realize that i started to do some weird things (not shown in the above video). My backswing started to become too outside in the takeaway, which didn't look outside from the prior angle. Also noticed that when I lacked depth in my backswing, I started getting a bit steep. Took note of those things before making the above video, so its probably a good thing that I reviewed video from this angle.

  18. I swapped out a 2 iron last summer for a 5 wood and could not be happier. The 5w is so much easier to hit and a lot more forgiving. To answer your question though, I do not swap out clubs depending on the course. My 3w is the oldest club in my bag and I use it off the tee or off the turf and love it the same. Sure I have good days with it and bad days but it's not going anywhere. Same with the rest of my set. It's the old saying (not politically correct here), "it's the arrow, not the indian."

  20. I have a 4i and a 23* hybrid that I exchange depending on the wind. The 4i flies lower and I can work it a little so its a good wind club. The 23*h flies high and likes going right to left all the time but can hold most any green.

  23. You are paying for the time and money spent researching and developing the training aid. Since many are coming from small companies or in some cases a single person or a duo like with the planemate they have to pay the costs to the company actually producing the product as well as the shipping costs to the get the product back to the creator. Then there’s the time of the developer to ship or if they choose to have someone else store and ship them. The cost of materials has been on the rise for awhile as well. As for the cost one has to determine if the investment is worth the price.

  25. Had good first initial convo with Jason, wants me to swing 6/7 iron at PGA Superstore to get my swing speed as I don’t have the number handy. He said that he would probably recommend 699 over 739 as I’ll (hopefully) continue to improve and the 699’s would be good ‘improvement’ club and would play to a potential lower handicap as well. More importantly, still trying to figure out lie angles/offset for me as we both agree that I want to be able to get the ball in the air as easily as I can. Same thing with shaft, he thinks I would be a stiff flex based off few things we discussed and would recom

  26. Catching up on my MGS reading between periods of tonight’s lightning game. I used to game two drivers when I played 90 percent of my rounds on a course in Indiana. Just subbed stuff in when I travelled to balance stuff out. Talked about this with a friend in Saturday’s round. Since I don’t currently bag a hybrid and really only use 13 clubs I’ve considered A. Putting a hybrid in the spot that I could chip with. B. Putting a chipper in. C. Putting in a dedicated big soaked sand iron. Since I have the hybrid already it’s likely to be the first man in.

  28. Price has gone up as we’ve decided to go with a charter flight from a local airport. AUD450 more, but 40 minute flight after a 30 minute drive and leaving when we want rather than getting up at 4am and driving 2 hours followed by 2 hours over 2 flights sounds like value to me. Might have to sell some more stuff out of my shed to cover the difference. 4 rounds, flights, accommodation and hire car for AUD1800 still amazing value with the quality of the courses. After shoulder surgery and 4 melanomas removed in less than 2 years, I feel like I deserve to splurge a bit.

  29. I’m in a bind with my 3W/4H/4iron i bought the 3W for realistically when I don’t hit driver well....but when will I know if I’m not hitting it well until I get to the course? my double 4s are a 19* for the hybrid and 21* for the metal.....strike both pretty well and have a decent yardage gap between (13 yards according to arccos) which is perfect. But I need a gap wedge at the bottom of the back (specifically 48*) so my conundrum is what’s got to get out? I am leaning towards the wood because if I go play a tight course I could always throw the wood in there instead of driver...

  30. This will be the first season where I bought a club specifically for the option of "swapping out." My Sub70 4 iron (21.5° at 38.5"), Callaway Epic Flash 4 hybrid (20°-23° at 40") and a 2016 Cobra KING Utility (not built yet, but planning to do 18.5° at 39.5") will all be available as my 14th club at the top end of my bag. Most of my rounds are played on my home course and in the morning when it's wet, so I do not plan on carrying the KING Utility much, if at all, while playing there and will set the Epic Flash at 20 degrees. However, I also spend some time playing a links-style course wit

  31. Interesting results. I am not too surprised.. I wish there was a way to do this blind and with now brand influence. I know that is not possible but I would be curious to see if not know who made a club made a difference. I bet it would..

  32. It would take a pretty extraordinary set of circumstances in terms of course or weather for me to swap out clubs. That said, I suppose I've done a variation of this: I've kept a club in my bag that has its place almost entirely because it's useful on the tee of one of the holes of the course that I play virtually all my golf on.

  33. @B.Boston, @cnosil I've fallen victim to the Divot Board and mine arrived today! (with a special appearance by Mercy the pug) I thought this would be a perfect compliment to my net practice, I didn't pick my username because I thought it was cool. I think on days I just hit the board I'll follow what @GolfSpy MPR did with @Kirke and work in trying to hit certain patterns, off toe, heel shot, etc.... This should be fun, although with some of the training aids I've bought this last year I'm starting to feel like Tin Cup.

  34. I've made the decision with my wife that I'll be joining the local semi-private golf club which is 5 minutes from our house. Slope is 140 and 141 from the member tee and the tips., maxing at at 7k yards Last year was a terror making tee times each week, but also finding a quality course to play without dealing with too many yahoos and 5 hour rounds. Looking forward to playing a fantastic course week in and week out, allowing my golf game to grow at a wonderful facility.

  35. Tiger was involved in a single car rollover accident. CNN is reporting that he is hospitalized after needing the jaws of life to cut him out of the wreck. It appears no one else was involved or hurt during the incident. That puts a damper on seeing the big cat in action this year. I hope he wasn't hurt badly. I was just looking at a story that he might be back for the Masters too, I can't imagine this wouldn't push back his plans, even if his back wasn't tweaked.

  36. I got a DI to help when my driver was amiss. That helped but realized it is a one trick pony for now (its been to wet out to try it from the deck). My driving game is getting back to where i want plus i just added a super hybrid, which could now be my safety club from the tee, replacing the DI. Now, i have thoughts of weakening the DI 2* and shortening the shaft (and maybe swap it to a KBS to make it more a 3 UI and then swap that out with my 3H depending on if it is windy that day. In reality, i really should just keep my 3H and sell the DI, although were is the fun in taking other clubs out

  37. Yes, others have said why training aids are so expensive but there is also a compounding factor to costs. People often seek the quick fix to improve their game and choose the training aid of the day and keep buying them when it doesn’t work. The best bet is to get recommendations from your instructor to help you fix the problems that you are having in your stroke. If you don’t want to go that route do some DIY things to see if the actual aid would provide some benefit.

  39. I have to make sure I'm making adjustments more often. Keep losing track of time and Thursday rolls around and I'm stuck. Most of your are probably saying no sh*t - but I am not too familiar fantasy play. If that wasn't already apparent by my standing in the league thus far.

  42. Can't speak for training aid companies, but right now there are a lot of manufacturing chains that are in chaos due to the pandemic in every industry. Raw materials are scarce, factories are running on skeleton crews to keep social distancing, both of which are driving prices higher. I see it at the grocery store, as it seems like staples I buy each week have gone up 1-2 dollars since the beginning of the year. We are still seeing scarcity of many items on the shelves. Hopefully, with the vaccines starting to become available things will start to get back to normal, but I expect it will be a w

  44. Tied my lowest round ever! 74 (36/38), 31 putts, at Beaver Creek in Zachary, LA. Three-putted 18 to miss my best round! Ugh!!!! Wind was adding 15-20 yards in the face, but I still hit everything solid. Best round of chipping I had in a long time! (SG below is vs a 0 hcp)

  45. The results were surprising to me. I would have expected Callaway to have the longest driver, but not strokes gained. Not saying they don't make phenomenal drivers, I have the Epic Flash Sub Zero and it performs. Just that I thought there might have been a trade-off for the distance. I would have expected the Ping to be at or near the top and it was crazy to see where it ended up.

  47. Having just bought a G410 LST last october I was most pleased with this section: 2020 Most Wanted vs 2021 - PING G410 LST This year, we put our previous year's winner in the field. The PING G410 LST did not disappoint. It finished 7th in Strokes Gained, 7th in Forgiveness, and 6th in Total Distance. We continually see examples of "newer isn't alway better" and the PING G410 LST is another testament to this observation. --- Looks like no need to upgrade, especially considering if the USGA and R&A start to reduce head size or weight to "combat the distance problem!"
