  1. I had a special announcement planned for my 10,000th post. But of course, i saw a topic earlier and fired off a reply before I thought about it. Then i hit a slight delay on the announcement details. So while the special announcement will still come, it’ll have to wait a couple days. But I think everyone will find it worth the wait. In the meantime, thanks to all the members who made this such a welcoming place when i first joined and who have continued to follow along and chide me on my club adventures It’s been an honor to serve on staff for the past three years

  2. First off wanted to thank everyone on this site. This is my 3,000th post. Not everything is golf related and I have really enjoyed coming to MGS and utilizing it similar to other social medias that I have gotten rid of. It is nice to come to this site every day and BS'ing back and forth with everyone. So thank you, cant wait to see was 2021 brings on the site. Background Now off to my fitting. Little background prior to my first fitting at TrueSpec in 2019 I had never been fitted and bought off the shelf. Prior to the fitting I had won a TS2 in a tournament and am still swinging that

  3. I've mentioned before that I work for a major auto manufacturer and one of the perks is killer deals on lease cars. I went yesterday and replaced mine with an Audi Q3. I've been wanting to lease an SUV, but never found one at the right price until recently. Our company was offering major incentives on the Audi brand and I couldn't pass it up. It rides good, looks amazing, and I've just always wanted a digital cockpit. Figuring out the radio was a hassle, but push enough buttons and it works itself out.

  4. Well, that's some compromise; a few hours drive vs 5 hours in a plane and 3 time zones. However, once things settle down, I could be talked into a trip east later in the summer. IMO wife and I are driving to LA in 3 weeks to attend Monte's clinic; 1000 miles. I want to attend his clinic early so I have all summer to screw it up. Only 6 students for 3 days; my wife and I and 4 others. Should be fun.

  7. I don't have a lot of different swing thoughts in general, but on the course I'd say I do things in order. I'll make some kind of rehearsal, a short practice swing, a slow-motion swing, an exaggerated drill, but something with a specific internal focus. But when I get to the ball, its all external focus, thoughts about the target, or visualization of the shot I want to hit.

  8. So I didn't buy it, but my fiancé did for my birthday at my request. I'm getting a new Ping Hoofer Lite to actually make walking more courses a thing this year, and if she starts playing she pay take my push cart. I love her a lot, she's really great. Oh, I guess I also bought the SIK Flo from my putter fitting thread since last I jumped in here as well.

  9. ... I have a playing pard this winter from Chicago. He is 49 and seriously long. I am giving up about 20 years and considerable length. One of the biggest differences between us is when I hit a bad tee shot I am usually in play. His bad tee shots are so long they bring stuff into play I can't reach. We play a short uphill par 4 that requires a 280yd carry over water to drive the green OR a long iron over the right side of the water that is a 220 carry for a LW in OR lay up short of the water leaving 110-120yds to the flag. He hits driver occasionally, 2 iron quite often and hit some spectacula

  13. Got my new GoPro today and had to brush up on the editing skills a bit before breaking it out for golf-related things. Safe to say I majorly annoyed the dog this afternoon: Going to take a bit of practice with the frame rates and resolution on the GoPro before things get real polished. It's been well over a decade since I've done any video editing outside of iMovie and I'm pretty rusty (using HitFilm Express at the moment).

  16. I had to come home from work and do some touch up cleaning on my car because I found out today that my new lease is in and I am scheduled to pick it up tomorrow. I was hoping to get a full practice session in, but I ended up taking a few swings at the Divot Board instead. It's starting to get there, still have a long way to go, but I'm loving the feedback I'm getting from it. I'm still working on not swaying and better rotation. Getting out of the habit of relying on my arms in the golf swing is going to be a long, hard road but one I hope pays off.

  17. I forgot how to golf... grabbed my 58° yesterday to get a few 25-75 yard shots in. It was like trying to do calculus... I don’t know how to do calculus. Going to be an interesting year if this is how it goes, my handicap might take off like Maverick off an aircraft carrier...

  19. I've looked at the pad and noticed it should be easy to replace by pushing down on the plastic casing and pulling up on the pad. I haven't seen anything that @GolfSpy MPR did about replacing. Also, @B.Boston asked about wear and I thought I'd get a photo of what mine looks like now. Keep in mind, this is probably between 400-600 shots, I've got a problem and am obsessed with grooving ball first contact. I think it's still got a lot of life left in it before needing to be replaced.

  22. At my club there are a lot of lazy golfers. Hit a ball off line and just leave it. Our grounds crew goes out around 5 am. When they rake the bunkers, mow the greens, rough or fairway, they toss any found balls into the fairway. I'm the first one off on Sunday morning. I pick up the balls and toss them into the basket on the cart. When i finish playing I'll sort them. Someone's name on it goes into the pro shop on the counter. Good high end ball no name in my bag, the rest into the range ball container. I get about 6 to 8 when I play and keep about 2 to 3. Sunday after a Saturday tournment is l

  23. Not directly a golf product, but I purchased a GoPro Hero7 Black today. I had a lot of fun cutting together a handful of holes into short videos last summer, but with Arccos requiring my phone to be in my front pocket I lost my nice camera after switching from ShotScope. I also bought a mounting clip for the GoPro so I can attach to to my push cart as a makeshift tripod. The Hero7 can do 1080p at 240fps which should come in handy on the range for evaluating my swing. We also have a few summer vacations planned, and I've been interested in brushing up on my video editing skills so this was

  24. We need a thread on the best excuses..... (wouldn't be surprised there is one already ) pretty soon it would be like the prison jokes story where the inmates just yell out the joke number rather than telling the joke How'd you play today....... Awful...... Why?? Mainly #16 with a bit of #27.

  27. It never ends... i received my TS2 16.5* on Friday, the 19* and 21* hybrids aren’t coming for another 3 weeks because the shaft is back ordered, and I’m already debating whether to switch out to a 7 wood... Any thoughts you have on the matter would be appreciated. I know you’ve tried a club or two in your day, and from prior conversations I know we hit the ball similar distances...

  30. Was supposed to be in the 60s today, but it probably never got out of the low 50s with lots of clouds and some rain. The course was completely saturated and unless you were on a hill you were standing in casual water. Short game and putting were solid but my full swing was a mess. 41/40:81 4 fairways, 7 greens, 30 putts.

  31. Most Wanted and Forum Testing are two totally different entities and really serve two different audiences. Most Wanted is to help the average consumer who usually buys off the rack without getting fit, to have an idea of what drivers performed the best over a large range of testers. Forum Testing is targeted obviously to our Forum readers who are more likely interested in details of how a particular driver worked for someone that may have similar swing DNA to them, over a period of 4-6 weeks which likely includes several rounds and range sessions. It also allows t

  34. Been meaning to do this for awhile, cleaned the clubs up for a round tomorrow so figured what the hell. Little about me, 40 years old, work in law enforcement. Married 12 years in July, 2 kids 4 and 16. I play maybe once a month, if I'm lucky twice. I live in oro valley, az luckily weather in the desert is fair most of the year so I spend a lot of time hitting in the net out back. I'm a 16 handicap, my driver and short game hurt the score but I've been working on it so fingers crossed. Now the clubs. Driver: Callaway Mavrik 9* set to 8* neutral.

  39. Two days in a row of banging drivers, yesterday at a demo day featuring PXG, Callaway, Ping and Taylormade, and again today at the PGASS testing yesterday’s winner against the Cobra Rad XB I ordered a week ago. I ended up canceling the Cobra order and took home a 10.5* Epic Max with Hazardous Smoke i-10 5.5 50g shaft. After using my gift card balance I could have gotten it for nothing out of pocket if I traded my G400 Max, but that club is a security blanket for me, and no way I was going to give it up for $125.

  40. As you probably can guess by the pictures, my bag has basically gone unchanged for the last 15+ years. This isn’t one of those old school WITB posts where someone is just getting back into the game, so their clubs are ancient. I just really (really) like this setup and have struggled to find any reason to replace it. That being said, I am sure I am well beyond the point of wearing every club in this bag out and am way overdue for a proper full bag fitting. Enjoy!

  46. My special order MMT shafts came in this week. Very quick turnaround time from Mitsubishi, I think it took less than a day from time of order to grips4less receiving them and then shipping to me took one additional day. Side note, I used grips4less for a lot of things in the past month and they've been fantastic to work with, and the free shipping over $75 is awesome. The hybrid shaft is matte while the utility is gloss to match the iron shafts. The original plan was just to start with one hybrid shaft in the Super Hybrid, but I figured I ordered a second shaft and might as wel
