  2. While Matt was playing his S game, I was playing like a Tour Pro... More specifically, I hit my 3 wood off the tee like Bryson at #4 last weekend, I played out of the sand like Hovland at #9 during the WGC and putted like Sergio from inside 8 feet during the second round of The Player’s.

  3. There is no shaft standards so an x in one shaft my feel like a stiff in another - especially if your swing speed is on the border of the traditional stiff/x range i swing around 115 and have xstiff through the bag Ian Fraser at TXG swings around 116mph and plays x stiff in his woods and stiff in his irons There are no absolutes

  5. Got the first round in on Monday with @00sportsman. Warmed up on the range and was striping the ball. On the course however was a completely different person playing. I wasn't expecting much but it was worse than I thought. No A game or B, C or D for that matter, I think it was my S game. We'll see what happens tomorrow and Friday.

  6. Got the season opener in last weekend.. temps just into the 50s but winds in the 20s to 30s! But it was really, really (really!) great to be out on an actual course again!! Yeah, had to wear extra layers and winter gloves but I guess I've gotten kinda used to those with practicing in the unfinished garage over the winter. So... if this round was any indication ... this is going to be pretty good golfing season for me! The series of lessons I've been doing are definitely paying off as the full swing is much, much better - making solid contact more often and watching the ball go in the gen

  7. An update: I had my previously scheduled long game fitting with Club Champion. First thing they did upon arrival was apologize profusely for the putter issues. They also cut today's $200 fitting fee in half. To recap: Club Champion butchered my putter They immediately refunded my repair shop price They ordered me a brand new Evnroll ER5B replacement They gave me a $100 discount on a completely separate long game fitting They offered a free putter fitting once the replacement comes in to make sure the loft and lie are set up correctly All in all I'd have to say they co

  9. Worked on tempo and ball striking today, 5 and 4 iron continue to be a bit inconsistent and not as long as I’d like but 6 down is getting really crisp! Focusing on set up and tempo has really helped my contact and ball flight start out of a more consistent window Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

  11. Second post for the day! After reading his review and talking to @azstu324 I am also returning the Woode and placed an order for a Titleist Hybrid 14 bag. Mine is Grey and Red though. So not a total copycat. I went back and forth over the 5 or 14, but in the end I prefer the extra pocket and overall layout of the 14 and just plain like the color/pattern better.

  13. Been sort of, kind of thinking about picking up guitar playing...again. Played quite a bit during college but with graduation, marriage, new job, etc., the Takamine 12 string found a place under the spare bedroom bed and rarely saw daylight. 30 years later, we were so overwhelmed with retirement, selling the house, moving to Montana that, I just opted to sell it, along with lots and lots of stuff (absolutely amazing what 2 people collect). I did keep my Eagles, Doobie Brothers, and a few other songbooks however. Living rural, lessons are not likely too convenient but, with all the on-lin

Normally i buy regular width shoes but last time i bought the under armour shoes i bought wide because my prior golf shoes weren’t comfortable. In normal everyday shoes, i tie them so loose that i just slip them on and off, so i never realized how wide my feet are

  16. So your knowledge is in data analysis which would position you in data interpretation and not the capture of the specific data MGS is trying to capture. Robotic tests are useful in testing some aspects of the club. The MGS test starts to take into consideration how the human element influences the performance of a club. For example attach a club to a robot and it will return the club to basically the same point with basically the same impact conditions. In human testing, the shape and markings, shaft, weight, etc. influence how people actually swing the club and you may have a clubs th

  17. As a high handicapper, I look at dispersion from the perspective of balls acceptably in play vs. not. "Acceptably in play" is my own terminology for meaning would it put me in an acceptable place for a second shot that wouldn't have been OB, in the woods, etc. When testing my TSI2 vs my old SIM Max gamer, the difference i found was that I was more likely to miss big right that would lead to OB balls. The SIM Max was probably 5 yards longer, but wasn't worth the risk due to the more likely big right miss that would be OB. I have found the above from my test plays out on the course.

I have a wide foot and have tried a number of brands and like @sirchunksalot said, there aren't many choices... the ones I have now are the ignite pwradapt and they are great - https://www.cobragolf.com/pumagolf/men/shoes/wide Soft/stretchy upper and waterproof. Have a pair of Adidas adipower 4orged and the wide in those isn't wide enough. I think Footjoy seems to have the biggest variety...

  21. Saxophone player here, was escape/refuge of sorts through school from 4th grade through graduate work, everything from concert bands to Jazz band, pep band, pit orchestra, parades, and in later years dance/swing band with a community group of mostly retired guys (I as "the kid"). In the last 30 years it has been occasionally helping out with school musical pit bands and recently a family band playing open mic nights (in hiatus currently) playing standards from '50s to '70s. To quote the swoosh brand, just do it and the fingers will remember. Listen and play along when you can, practice

  22. Gotta love’em where they’re at. My father in law never cared for me that much, I was never good enough for his girl. There’s a lot of things I could say about him but I will not do it, even after he’s passed. I never walked a mile in his shoes and never will. Besides, my son in law might be having the same thoughts about me! Need to set a good example

  25. Just ordered a demo Alta CB shaft for my G400 3w. Changing the current 65g stiff to regular. My G400 5w has that same shaft in regular and I seem to catch it more centered. Also, the recent fitting had me move from stiff to regular on the driver shaft (working out great) and the recommended 3w shaft was the Diamana Thump 65R... seems all things pointing to flex not helping and likely robbing me of some distance. For $60, it's worth a try.

  26. ... So sorry to hear this. After 2 back surgeries in the 90's you may remember last year my disk herniated and the pain was unbearable and thought I would need a 3rd surgery but they gave me the option of Therapy and it was awesome. 3 months of 3 times a week but it worked great. Also gave me some exercises to strengthen my core to hopefully prevent it from happening again. So do your exercises religiously and hopefully you have a 100% recovery!

  27. I’m really down in the dumps right now boys. I posted in here a little while ago about my back going out on me, and how I was looking forward to finally getting back out again on Saturday. After a couple of weeks off, the back felt a lot better last Thursday and Friday but on Saturday morning it was a little stiff, and I had a feeling there might be a problem. i was dying to play though, and hoped it would loosen up once we started. No such luck. It got worse as the day went on, and if it wasn’t a team game I’d have stopped well before we finished. That night I was back to square one

  28. Decided to take the plunge and ordered "The Strike Plan" from Adam Young golf. My goal for 2021 is to become more consistent with my ball striking ability and I'm hoping this will help. I know Adam's program comes approved by @GolfSpy MPR. Another thing is, it's nice to have a plan for purposeful practice to use in conjunction with the Spornia net, which has already seen some improvements in my game. I've only watched the introduction video and it has me excited for the rest of the program.

  31. In reality 10 yards with roll isn’t a lot. Roll is going to vary from hole to hole course to course and even shot to shot. Having a driver that has better dispersion and giving up that little bit of yardage isn’t really an issue IMO.

  33. Most of the time there’s going to be five and take between distance and dispersion when choosing a club. It comes down to how much one is willing to give up. If one driver is 5 yards shorter but the dispersion has balls staying in the fairway or barely missing while the other driver(s) have balls going into areas where a recovery shot is needed or not possible then sacrificing 5 yards isn’t that big of a deal. I personally don’t let opinions or reviews of clubs from people justify my decision to purchase a club or not. How much shorter in your fitting was the g425 Max compared t

  34. I’m living in the “Land of Replacements”! I’ve gotten mixed reviews from the MANY of new parts recipients. One guy the Doc screwed-up and his leg is 1.5” shorter! But many others have been OK. The Doc who did my shoulder(s) with no problems was supposed to do knee but he retired at onset of COVID. My new Orthopedic Doc she seems great and has not had any negative reviews.

  36. Brands like mizuno and Cobra have to over come brand perceptions. Mizuno isn’t known for their drivers, in some places they are hard to find so people will look at Mizuno and think solely about irons, their woods have come along way in the last 10 years. Cobra has a perception of being cheap. This goes back to the days when they were under the acushnet brand and titleist was the main line. Titleist has some perceptions to overcome too. They were always seen as the brand for the better player, their drivers off the shelf weren’t as long as the TM and Callaway drivers. They’ve stepped up th

  37. Really liking the mat to hit little chips taking the club shaft back to parallel to ground to work on clean contact with no ball indoors. Also for back to 3/4 swings with lead arm parallel to ground. Easy to grab a club in the living room and make a couple swings to dial in low point and get the feel of a good transition and not hanging back.

Turns out to be spring break and 50% off Tuesdays. Get there and it was a two hour wait. That was a no go. Hopefully it will be better tomorrow.

  45. See. This is where you wrong. The average MGS forum member? You’re right, they’re probably getting fitted However, the MGS blog (articles, most wanted testing results) is read by a far larger population of golfers and 99.999% of those readers don’t post on the MGS forums. Those readers ARE buying stock options off the shelf with limited or no fittings Those are the people who can benefit most from the MGS testing articles

  47. First round of 2021 was on Pi day. Hadn't swung a club all winter. And it was a little ugly. Had trouble with fat shots to start, then found I was about 2 clubs short, if not a little more. Driver was working adequately, my expectations were low, this was a surprise. Strangely, my short game and putting was only slightly down from the norm. Another surprise. Club I hit the most solid was my 3 hybrid. Unfortunately, it was also the club I could only block. Lovely, majestic, pushed shots. So much fun. Short game wasn't enough to save me, shot a 91 from some pretty shor
