  1. Today took advantage of some beautiful weather (by beautiful northeast standards of 45 and cloudy) and got out to grill. cauliflower with garlic olive oil with balsamic glaze. Sweet potatoes with garlic salt and some tri tips. Can smell summer now

  2. 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...

  3. #grillingszn started tonight. Just some simple chicken to be used for meals this week. Marinade is olive oil, lemon juice, granulated garlic, onion powder, salt, and pepper. Had some tonight with linguini Alfredo and green beans.

  5. Need to do a “MGS golf trip” bug tournament for as many that can go once covid is over. Not sure if something like that had taken place or not but. Tough to get a large group all at the same time but worth a shot!

  7. Lots of thoughts..just no recent experience since I haven’t swung a club in almost 3 months. 7 wood is an absolute must for anyone in our swing demographic. I have the G410 and it is the longest running club in my bag. 2 years now. i also have the TSi 16.5 but it just came in before i got sick, so no experience with it. I ordered the TSi1 driver and hybrid in 20 and 24 last week. They will be in March. I’ll compare them to the Srixon ZX 24 degree that came in and is still untouched in my office You can see I have a lot of catching up to do. Ha

  8. @cksurfdude is smarter than the average ho, Kenny. Let me explain how this all went down... I mentioned somewhere here how I wished I had known PXG was coming out with a new version of the 0211’s, this time with stronger lofts, as distance with the old version was not what I was getting from my old irons. So CK pm’ed me and he said he was interested in them also. I told him I knew how this would end up on my end. Once I’m “interested” it’s only a matter of when I buy, not if. CK said he was very happy to hear this, because he wanted me to be the guinea pig and report back to him, lol

  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

  16. @cksurfdude and I have been carrying on PM conversations for the past couple of years on a lot of topics. We were scheduled to attend one of Monte's clinics in CA last April, but then COVID... We have a mission to get together somewhere, someplace. It will happen, hopefully sooner than later. One of us has to make a trip across the country, or we meet in the middle. I'm happy that Chuck has met the clubs of his dreams. Now I will have to play really well, or he will beat me.

  21. I am not even sure why it was sloppy today. It hasn't really been raining excessively or anything. Made a mistake and stood in a some sinking mud on a tee box and actually swung and miss. Also fell down once (not swinging, just walking) on a hill.

  26. ... A turing point for me was A Sorenstam in her prime said if she is not positive she can hit the shot 80% of the time she will not attempt it. Announcer asked her what if it is a 75% chance and she responded "then I don't try it." I thought if the best female player on the planet won't try a 50-50 shot why in the world am I attempting to pull it off?

  27. Yup. He’s the best ball striker on tour. The Taylor made equipment staff said his approach to the game and mindset during tournaments is the closest to Tiger that they’ve ever seen. They said Collin is every bit the competitor, but somehow does it with a much more laid back attitude He and Hovland have jumped into my must watch list.

  29. I happen to like Reed and he seems to thrive on controversy. Speaking of which it gives the 'talking heads' content for their endless haranguing. After all controversy sells. Family issues? I can personally tell you there are always two sides to a family story. Cheating in College or on Tour? I don't know - that's between him and his conscience.

  30. Great win for Morikawa!! Shows he can win from the lead as well as come from behind with a star-studded field. Lots of hype for the new young stars; he has jumped to the top of that group for sure.

  32. I wasn't sure about playing this weekend after getting my 2nd C-19 shot on Thursday. After hitting some balls at the range on Friday, I decided to give it a go even though I ached all over. My wife wanted to play so I sucked it up... and on Saturday I certainly sucked!! Shot 88 with a couple of doubles, a triple and a quad. Just nothing worked. Today was a little warmer but breezy. I felt a little better. Managed an 81... 42/39 with a birdie on #10. The #10 hole is one of two holes that I failed to birdie in 2020, but this birdie was my second on this hole this year and it's not e

  33. 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.

  40. I played behind a Skins group yesterday that had a guy playing to a 1.3 index. I know that having overheard them talking on the putting green. Since play was slow, I was able to see a good many of his shots. He didn't seem overly long but accuracy was crazy good. It must be boring be you guys .

  42. Oh yeah... this happened... '21 version 0211s 6i-GW with the MMT shaft in .. what's a new experiment in irons .. Senior/A flex. The Regular shaft is 70g and I was looking for something just a bit lighter, but the 60g only comes in Senior, so... we'll see...

I wouldn't be posting in the "Club Ho" topic ) So Mr. @Grand Stranded is partially to blame .. oops er umm .. thank .. as we'd been talking about irons and seemed to have traveled on similar paths with iron sets the

  43. After watching the txg video on Edison wedges yesterday I am intrigued, but really they are a hard no for me at that price point. Still, I'm rooting for them to work for you. I think I'm going order the Costco wedges and see if I can bend them 2 degrees strong. 3 wedges for $170 has me more interested than 1 for $200.

  49. I can only think of 2 par 5’s I play regularly that I can’t reach: one is 600+ from the blues and bunkered on both sides from 260-290. The other is 570+ from the tips, and would require me to carry a 4iron 225 over a 50 yard wide pond directly guarding the front of the green. Par is a great score on the former, and birdie is a 50/50 proposition on the latter if you play it as a 3 shot par 5. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
