  1. So I lost my damn mind, starting a couple of weeks ago. Let me tell the story: Got an email from the frozen over bots at Callaway during the Austin snow storm and saw this awesome old Steelhead Plus 3 wood with an EI-70 shaft in it for 8.47. Now, just because you see one thing, doesn't mean you need to hang out. So, moments later, I see a Rogue Sub Zero, Tensei Blue X stiff shaft, with tool and original headcover for 167. Well bag it up and I'm out the door. Two days later at the local golf shop (why am I there?) I score 3 Ben Hogan Belts, 3 Nike Belts, an Adidas Belt and a PING Sunday b

  2. First 18 hole round this year for handicap purposes. My wife and I played with our usual couple and the four of us had 7 birdies!! Well, 3 of us had a birdie and the the other lady had 4 birdies. She's a good player and playing from the Forward tees, she can score. Sometimes she plays in the Men's Gangsome and they make her play from the Senior tees. I shot 80... 42/38 with one birdie on #2 and a triple bogey on #7. My short game was working well today; I wish my driver game worked. I only hit 4 GIR, but chipped and putted pretty well. The short game practice this week seemed to gi

  3. Not in the Tampa area. We had rain and overcast skies til about 3:00 and so chilly I had to put a sweatshirt on. Oh my word a sweatshirt in mid 60's temp am I becoming a Floridian?? In Ohio I'd be wearing shorts and a tee shirt in mid 60's heatwave.

  4. First full round since the snow finally melted. Took on a well thought of course nearby that I usually overlook because it can be pricey. It was windy and cold but sunny. Good day out working on think box/play box. Also first course I went into with a plan ahead of time after gps flyovering the holes. High score but proud of some good shots out there. Hit 67 percent fairways and had 5 one putts on the back 9. Score was still crazy high @ 121 but I left 19 strokes in bunkers and lost balls. Trusting the process....

  5. 44/41 at Mesa Del Sol today. Not sure what it is about this course but it messes with me. Another rash of the short-wedge-itis. Right on target shots sitting on the front aprons... dang is that ever frustrating. Oh well, on the plus side, the new driver shaft put me down range on two fairways in second shot yardages I'd not had before.

  8. I played in The Cold! Temperatures in the high 30’s with a 15 mph wind is no joke. Actually it was about 10 degrees warmer with light winds on the first tee. But by the back nine it was Nordic conditions. I did have 2 birdies and barely broke 80.

  9. That is Worthington Manor, it is the closest course, 2.8 mi, from my house. It is often a US Open Qualifier, I drive by it everyday on the way to day care. I committed to keeping the driver in the bag most of the day and that part of the plan worked. I instead found a lot more sand than during my usual rounds at "easier" courses. You can tell that between the tee and the green was quite an adventure for me out there. Sent from my Pixel 4 using MyGolfSpy mobile app

  10. I just wanted to make it known that My mom passed this evening. She had Pancreatic Cancer. She survived for six years with it. Her Dr. was ecstatic with her tenacity and drive to beat it. He said she is/was a miracle, and would possibly make into the medical journals for her survival longevity. She was 83. She was a wonderful mother and parent. I'm not looking for sympathy.... all of us have or will go through this. I just felt the need to tell someone.

  11. UPDATE To my humble followers and donor, @fixyurdivot : The scores have continued to come down, and while I can't credit a single club to that, being 30 yds farther and in the woods less will always inspire more confidence. I've been at it hard since last June trying to get my game down to pass the PAT, part as a personal goal, part as well, maybe let's see where I can go. Three weeks ago I got an offer from a management group to come on as an apprentice, and they're going to help me through the process and I'll be working as an assistant pro until I'm all finished up.

  13. Hmm I think Korda's will need to have a very strong day tomorrow to come close to the top of the leaderboard. Or maybe they just need a weekend break from winning. As much as I admire their golf skills and tenacity. it'd also be nice to have Kupcho with a first win.

  15. Been working with my coach regularly for over a year (and is the only swing coach I have used over the last 10 years); lately we have been working on short game and I have done both in person, video, and launch monitor data analysis with him. Yes, it is all about ball flight and quality and video can show him this. In addition to the video, I will also get some launch monitor data to show the dynamics of my swing.

  18. If you’re looking for anything Aldila makes, there’s a guy on eBay named Shirt Daddy who sells nothing but their shafts at inexpensive prices. For instance, a brand-new Aldila NV fairway shaft, uncut, is $39.97, plus shipping. Great deals! They’re not from the most current Aldila lineup, but ones like RIP Alpha, NV, and NVS are STILL really good! He’s a legit seller.

  19. Not trying to hijack this thread so I'll do a write up of the bag in a separate post. This will definitely be a keeper. Here are just a few pics. I mentioned earlier that I liked the the configuration of the woods down the right side. It was just a matter of being introduced to a new setup and I figured out that I could load everything identically to the Woode but with individual slots. All the irons are loaded from left to right too just like the Woode. the more I practice, the luckier I seem to get..

  22. It was an interesting shot that they showed of Spieth. When Bryson was on 6, Speith stopped to watch Bryson hit his tee shot; to me that shows that rolling back distance isn't really necessary especially when PGA players stop and watch. Who says hitting it longer isn't interesting!

  24. A couple of things that might be considered game changers would be the advancement of materials in woods: persimmon, steel, titanium, and now the incorporation of carbon; the use of milling machines over forgings which allowed for more precision in manufacturing. In the fitting world, it would be the use of shaft adapters/club connex to allow people to try club combinations without fitters having to have glued clubs in stock. Callaway's AI for design will become a game changer; as well as 3D printing.

  27. I hear ya. I was struggling with the change in the movement of the backswing when I started with my coach last summer. The drills without a club were going good. When I would try to make a swing with a club even just outside to get some video for my coach on the drills it wasn’t so good. A couple drills I’ve been throwing in periodically are using an alignment rod in the club and put it on my right hip, feel like it stays there til my hands are at and then slightly past my trail leg. At this point I set the wrist where the shaft becomes parallel to my target line. From this point it’s th

  28. Was there something before that accomplished the same type of visual aid? The early 2000s was when I got into golf so I don't recall putters that weren't in the Anser-type head shape, Bulleye, or Zebras. Even if it wasn't the first it still led to the alignment aid boom in mallet putters that's still going with Triple Track. Take Dead Aim

  32. So a funny story - guess you had to be there at the time. My MIL led a very sheltered life in Connecticut. When we announced that we were transferred (this was about 45 yrs ago) to Kansas City, she had asked if they still had cowboys roaming the city with guns strapped to their waist, and wait for it........ stagecoaches. Yes she was serious. This is a women that had never been beyond Stamford , CT until we bought her and my FIL an airplane ticket to come see us. On the plane, she had commented to my FIL( as the plane was taxiing) that the flight wasn't bad. My FIL told her the plane hadn't

  33. Got a 30 minute session at PGASS tonight after work. Took a few clubs in to just get loose and swing some. happy to report that the irons and wedges were basically where they are mid-season and I had a tight little draw tonight. Hopefully that’s a result of the 60-60-100 drill. I felt like my contact was really crisp on my good shot. driver was spotty, but I had a handful of good ones and nothing that was really bad like last time. I FINALLY got to hit my MIM Black 52* with my newly installed Modus 125 wedge shaft in it. My goodness do I love it. So glad I swapped

  34. Beautiful day for golf today, mid 70's, no wind and fairly dry for Florida. Ended up playing ok, drives were a bit off in distance and my 5 wood is struggling a bit. Then there was the par 3 over the water and my ball decided it wanted to go for a swim. Ended up with an 89, at least the short game ( not counting the putter)was a tad better.

  36. I think it depends on the hole. I saw some where Rory had better launch conditions. But they showed more holes where Bryson hit driver and they didn’t show Rory’s tee shot. But it is all about scores and Rory has been ahead in that category at least until now.

  37. Not so sure about that watched the highlights and Bryson was taking very aggressive lines on other holes and is hitting a good percentage of fairways.

Looking forward to giving you more of a hard time over club-hoeing from the wrong side of the tee for the next 10k!
