  1. My wife is going to kill me. I’m excited to share my bag next week when everything is here but I had to make a change with my SIM 3. The Diamana shaft just feels like a wet noodle. I met up with a friend and did some swings and confirmed what I really wanted. I just ordered a Ventus Blue 7-X from Peoples golf...after some reading and comparisons it was a no brainer to go with them. The sad part about the Diamana was it felt so good but it was all over the place for me on the course. 60* TW MG2 arrives next week and after that I’ll snap some pics for the 2021 bag. Maybe the front door camera will need a battery charge those days when UPS & FedEx arrive

  2. Yep that is the way you disinguage the drive tracks-- I had figured it out and Roger confirmed it--- As far as handling and storing it does just fine--- Like I told Roger It could fit in the trunk of my S-500 easily with a staff bag if I did not have so much stuff in there already but that is my fault. But it does fit in the back seat fine. As far as the weight it is a sturdy built unit and a little heavy but did not strain my back too bad handling it. LOL talking about a race I already have one lined up with an old Vet who lives in the park who rides a Rascal Scooter but he insisted I have to have a loaded golf bag on it. I will have a "driver" though one of the young guys that runs and bicycles all time. I can not keep up with it set on 8. Yep this is going to be a blast. Wanted to get it on course yesterday but I had one of my "bad days" hoping to do it today but need to check the weather because they are calling for showers on and off today and they do not reccomend it in the rain for ovious reasons

  7. So far, I have reasonable optimism that it's going to be trivial, but those are famous last words in auto repair. I have a Bluetooth car scanner, and it's saying it's a cylinder misfire. Having it looked at by my local mechanic (the dealer has already agreed to pay for that) to make sure it's not something more serious.

  8. I have tested mine here in the park I live in and the remote fail safe does operate as advertised. Put it through a pretty good pace and my remote did not die. Looking forward to getting on the course and range with it. Also I found it highly manuevarable I actually live in a mobile home and used the remote guided it out the door and on to the wheel chair ramp. Going down the ramp I had the speed set on 1 and it braked good. Speed position 2 is as fast as I can walk behind it at this time. I did throw it up on 8 and it took off. My wife wondered if I could stop it and I told her it was supposed to stop itself if it got to a certain distance away. I told her at worst it would stop when it hit something. But the shutdown stopped as advertised.

  13. Can't get over the +8 hump but for the first "official" round of the year that I can post under my GHIN I'll take it. A crapton of blind shots and a pretty narrow course; thankfully I was paired with 3 retirees who've played it for 30 years! Also - first round with my free Arccos membership (for a limited time) and I'm really liking it. I use a 5 inch iphone8 and leave it in my left front pocket and it worked fantastic. (ignore the first putt distance LOL... I haven't got around to marking the pin w/the phone yet) Best shot of the day was the one below; the 21 yard pitch over a mound onto a green that sloped away from me and I had a 2 foot circle I could have landed it in. Dribbled it up to 3 feet. Funny how those touch shots end up being your favorite vs the big drives, etc.

  14. So this is turning into as much a bag test as it is an electric push cart test! Haven't had a chance to test the Easilock function but will be on the range tonight and will just mount the bag to the cart for testing purposes. Moved my entire bag over and found a few differences from my Datrek Light II bag. The valuables pockets are deeper so more space for bigger phones. I have a Note 20 Ultra so fairly large phone that I will test the fit. I use my phone for the Grint during rounds so not that it would stay in there. The cooler pocket is really big. I can fit a 6 pack of seltzer water with room for ice and whatever other canned beverages you may be sneaking bringing on to the course... I can also fit (though not at the same time as a 6 pack) my 1.5L insulated water bottle and the compartment still zips up. I drink a lot of water during a round (sometimes 3 or 4L in the heat of summer) so the big cooler pocket is a big plus for me especially if I plan on walking more rounds this summer!

  15. This is true. However I am going to guess that there are some serious outliers to get to that level of dispersion. Dispersion patterns are not the end all be all. Yes they will give a good guideline but there will be variance within them as well. I for instance have a driver dispersion of about 70 yards. However I can and will increase that to 100 yards at times, but I don't change my strategy because of that. It just means I am not that good. He does suggest that getting the driver dispersion down to about 75 yards is perfectly fine. And my guess is that you will be somewhere in that range. DECADE will change your thinking on the course and will help you shoot better scores without changing anything mechanically. That I am 99% sure of.

  17. Today's webinar was great; while I know Scott is trying to get people to buy the program, it was still nice for he and Lou Stagner to spend an hour and 15 minutes giving to a webinar on DECADE to people that retweeted a post. Lou spent the first 15 minutes talking about expectation management; the first E in DECADE. Yes, DECADE is an acronym. Scott considers expectation management to be one of the most important parts of decade. Understanding realistic expectations allows you to properly assess your game. Scott then kind of assessed some of the masters play. Talked about how big of a mistake it was for Jordan to try and hit out of the trees and that it wasn't worth the risk. Basically maintaining discipline for 72 holes is very difficult. He talked about shot patterns and why using the DECADE shot patterns works for most handicap levels even players shooting in the 90s. He talked about a shot that Will hit (think it was 17) where he hit it to 5 feet. Will told Scott he heard a patron say that he was shooting at flags. Will told Scott he wasn't; hit target was 13 feet left of the flag. Two big things that Scott stressed is that you should only work the driver in one direction and focus on speed drills for putting. I've gone through the foundations program and have to say while what is discussed sounds easy, it is really hard to maintain the focus on the DECADE principles for 18 holes.

  18. It wasn’t a bad late afternoon either! Got very hot with the putter. Made a bomb on 6 for birdie, 8 for par, 16, 17 and 18 for birdie for 73. Also my speed was spot on all day, lots of tap in pars. I put hybrid in the 6 iron slot. Only hit it once but effectively on a lay up on a par 5. Smashed 5 wood all 3 times that I hit it - could really have used some sort of 3 wood on 17 - par 5 was 15 yards short with the 5 wood. :) Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

  21. I really appreciate that compliment Bryan. Despite the fact that I am active on hunting and sharing contests on IG, and my capability of multitasking. My full time job is very unpredictable, there are very light and easy days, where I might put it about 2 hours of work for the whole day, it is just as easy to have days where I am working over 16+ hours, and clocking in 80 to 90 hours Monday to Friday. My fear is that I will get stuck on those work blackholes and will not be able to put in the effort and care that this community deserves. Still it is very tempting.

  22. If you have friends, REAL friends that is... there is no better answer than: The humble Minivan. Sadly that GIF is not me, in spirit maybe. My humble Honda Odyssey faithfully carries 3 friends + Myself to NH and Maine every year for 2 golf trips. It holds all the clubs, luggage, food, adult beverages, and other necessities one could need for a weekend of golf. Plus it does this in comfort and with absolutely no style at all. So no one expects you to be good at golf either.

  26. We're going to need to see videos of this race! I was thinking I could race the GPS unit against a golf cart with the automatic distance control set to max (60 yards) but in that mode it automatically sets the speed to 5 so it wouldn't work. I could run behind it at speed 9 but that would be a 60 yard sprint! Yep, also Roger mentioned that they are trying to focus on rental fleets at courses so having a detachable piece like a remote would be a liability. My buddy's dad who is retired plays with a remote cart (not sure of the brand) but I think after a while you just get used to having a remote in your pocket. Yeah, it definitely folds and unfolds easier than my sun mountain reflex but that is a very old push cart.

  28. A couple of weeks back I welcomed you, expressed my hope that you'd contribute to the conversations, and told you that your contributions would increase the likelihood that your recommendations would be seen as valuable. Now you've posted a half dozen times, and every single one in this thread, pushing an app. THAT trend actually makes your recommendation LESS reliable in my mind, and apparently in the minds of others here. Your involvement here seems to be for the sole purpose of puhsing the app.

  29. If your using the app click on the 3 lines in the bottom right corner Then click on transactions and trade block This page will show what everybody has set up for players wanted and offering. You can click on edit my team in the upper left. It will list your team with boxes to check for who you want to offer. Then you can search for the last name of the guys you want to get in return and check their boxes. You can also add a message which is helpful if your looking for specific guys and how much you may be willing to offer to get them.

  40. You could probably ask him. He talked a little about why he says not to worry about larger patterns. Basically, and someone can correct me if I am wrong, but he would say use the normal dispersion he recommends. The reasoning is that if you use the wider pattern and move it around you could put yourself if a spot that will create more issues. You ultimately will hit into those hazards on occasion as you shots can land anywhere in you pattern. That said, you could go through his tee shot selection flow chart and adjust for your pattern.
