  3. Had a $20 coupon to GG and just had to use it, especially since I needed a new wedge. Only 2 lefty wedges in the entire store - fortunately I was looking for a 54* and that's exactly what they had. This SM7 is a first for me so I can't wait to try it out. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy

  4. Somehow on the 18th hole of a downtrodden public course near Boston, I lost, dropped, or misplaced my month old Scotty putter last Sunday. I must have hit a few practice chips since it was almost dark out and forgot to grab my putter. Didn't realize it wasn't in my bag until my next round on Wednesday. Called them on Wednesday and they said no one had turned anything in. Called again over the weekend, spoke to the same guy and still nothing. At this point I figured someone had picked it up and kept it. So I looked on eBay and marketplace, specifically for my college head cover that I had on it

  5. Just did 10 minutes worth of swinging like a mad man. I feel like I can skull a 52° wedge over the Chesapeake Bay right now.

  6. I tried this several years ago. Showed up one day to play and asked the assistant pro if he had seen the cart with my cover. He shrugged his shoulders, I grabbed a cart and headed out to the course. Found my cover being used by a couple of other members. They said, we didn't think you were playing today. I asked them did I look like the local golf cart cover provider. I would not have minded if they had asked me or someone in the pro shop. People just don't respect others!

  8. First and foremost, I have to give a HUGE shoutout to @dlow206 for hitting me up and asking if I was interested in this shaft, and obviously to @Fujikura Golf and the forum for providing it during the official forum test. I had applied for the original test after reading up on the new line earlier in the year, and followed along closely as people started posting their results, because I felt like this shaft could be a good fit for me. Much to my surprise last week, Derrick hit me up via PM and asked if I was still eyeing the shaft and interested in taking it off his hands. I paid for the shipp

  15. The truth will set you free, but some people don't want to hear it. Hopefully the TSi will outdrive the TS1, and you can offer him a nice big cup of STFU. It will be interesting if you get longer but slightly less accurate, your handicap goes down, but your buddy tries to tell you that you're better off with the TS1. I love when people argue with math.

  20. Got this beast for $13 a couple of weeks ago. I dont know if it will end up in the bag, but talk about low trajectory... X Stiff steel shaft. Original grip in great shape. The pictures uploaded sideways, probably because my wrists were still stinging from the swinging.

  24. One of the courses tried putting clear plastic wrap between the driver and passenger. One of the pros watched people drive in, and if they were together, he made a note. You couldn't just say you wanted to share, but if he saw you ride together in your vehicle it was ok. It was like " Blue Chevy truck. Guy in black hat rode with guy in red jump suit". Then he would ok it.

  25. Really looking forward to hearing what everyone’s feedback on the TSi line. With that said I was very fortunate to get an opportunity 2 weeks ago to get fit for a driver and 3 wood, both of which just showed up in the mail today! While I'm not an official tester I definitely excited to contribute in an unofficial manner

  26. I'm a scratch player, but I absolutely can learn from mid/high handicappers, especially on a forum like this where guys have done substantially more research than me in certain areas. I can knock the ball around the course well, but I have a huge blind spot on technology, club fitting, golf course architecture, and many other areas. Am I going to listen to a swing tip that some high capper is parroting from the latest Golf Digest or take any other unsolicited advice? Probably not. But are there several other facets of this great game where they might know more than me and can educate me or

  27. I'm sure that what our esteemed moderator has written is true. This comment and others like it are spot on. Since the original post was about equipment I would also throw in fitters and club repair guys. A good fitter knows how to read data from a launch monitor really well - I would think that he needs to play golf so that he has a sense of what its like but beyond that do you really think that anyone working on a tour players clubs has their playing capability? I've learned a lot since becoming a member of MGS over eight years ago. Much of it has been from our mid and high ha

  30. I think everyone can provide valuable information, regardless of handicap. I know several dudes who just love to experiment and tinker with equipment setups. Their handicaps are inflated just cause they play with different gear every time we go out because that's what they like to do. If I have equipment questions, these are the dudes I ask first (and of course I visit this forum). Kind of a silly notion to believe people don't know anything just because they might be a slightly worse golfer.

  31. Just the opposite. I got a guy into golf at work, letting him use my old gear... Now he is trying to give me lessons and says he can keep up with me... I am super glad he is getting in to golf, but he drives me nuts actually. I am trying to teach him the rules, but just can’t grasp that if he hits two in the crap off the tee he did not get a par...... But the guy at DSG underestimated my knowledge as I was teaching him things about the clubs and their launch monitor.

  32. No. I honestly don’t think he does. He has little interest in LM numbers. He’s very old fashioned in a lot of his thoughts. He still uses a TM RocketBLZ 3 wood, which he hits very well. Until last year he still played Titleist DCI irons. I finally got him to upgrade to AP3 but he wouldnt go get fit for them. Just wanted DGS 300 shaft—because that’s what works for him. He won’t look at any LM data i show him. Matter of fact he was on my Rapsodo snd didn’t care about any of the numbers, just wanted to dissect his swing. It will come down to if the TSi I have comi

  33. Skill is not the same as knowledge. Skill and knowledge compliment each other in most cases, but golf is a different animal. One can be a very good player and have little knowledge of equipment or the fundamentals of the golf swing. There are PGA pros with great knowledge of equipment and swing mechanics that will never be scratch. Golf is hard to be good at. Some have natural ability, but little knowledge as to how or why they can play at a high level. There are players that lack the natural ability to play at a high level, but they have a lot of knowledge about the game, equipment

  34. Glad you created this post. I got in a rutt last year. It was my typical once or twice a week routine. Get up go play, shoot roughly the same score 74 /75 and go home. I wasn't getting better and I wasn't getting worse. Then this August I was selected to be a tester for the Sub 70 699 Pro irons. I never win anything so I got jump started with excitement there. Then I got motivated to do the testing. I focused more, got out to the driving range and course more. Then I noticed how much better I was playing. Scores were coming down, taking my handicap down with it. I looked for holes in my game /

  41. Very interesting topic and yes I can definitely agree that I've had conversations with some golfers who are way better on the course, but I would say lack other knowledge. Whether it is different era's or just general schools of thought I've without a doubt got that feeling of you know nothing because you are not a such and such. With all that being said I can relate this curling as it is without a doubt more my expertise, but similar to golf there are different facets and knowledge can come from a variety of areas. For curling there is ice, tactics, technical and mental. I would say I am very

  43. I’ll quote your post of the many on this topic, as you correctly quoted one of the smartest engineers in the business Marty Jertson of PING. Everyone should read this article. So much info in there that i bet none of us knew. The part about measuring club head speed by launch monitors was startling to me Beware of Smash Factor

  44. sweet setup. Can’t battle a passed down club sometimes. My cousin still has a “ding a ling” putter in his bag. Plays it every round on the 18th. Was his fathers and before him his grandfather. If you have never heard of it check it out it’s pretty ridiculous . Definitely no Scotty!

  45. So I will respect the embargo. But I did talk to my guy today and I heard that the driver either is in play right now or will be in play with Gary woodland. The ball sounds interesting. It is either in play on the European tour right now or it will be in 2021 with four European players and at least one PGA player. He did not share any pics of anything new.

  46. Basic club repair type things and since I am guessing you are considering them as a "classic" set of clubs to have fun with. I would cut down the wedge, extend the 5i, and then put on some inexpensive new grips. You can try sandpaper, but it they are dry rotted that probably won't make a lot of difference. Hireko has grips in the $2.00 range.

  47. Recently I had a love /relationship with my driver - I kept skying the ball 3-4 times a round. Took a lesson a couple of weeks ago and my instructor immediately figured out the issue. On my last three rounds, I've been hammering the ball right down the middle. Now I've got to work on the rest of the bag [emoji16] Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy

  49. In my opinion, the big thing it shows is that golfers can hit shots and play good golf, but they don't know everything about how they actually hit the shots, their numbers, and all about equipment. Some players do; Tiger is an example,, but I would guess that the majority have no clue or even want to know.
