  1. I’m still having the same issues. Next round going to try just using my Arccos GPS data on my iPhone Lock Screen for data to front/middle/back of green. When I get rid of Arccos and look to upgrade rangefinder I’ll most likely stop looking at the budget products and just invest in the latest hybrids like the Garmin z82.
  2. I currently have 5 wedges! Just got a new set of Cobra Forged Tec X irons upgrading from PXG 0211 Gen2. The Cobra set PW and GW are 3 degrees strong lofted. PXG 0211 PW was 45 deg and Forged Tec X PW is 42 deg and GW is 48 deg. Then I have 50, 54 and 58 Mizuno T22s. I've only had the Cobra's for 2 rounds now and don't have good distance numbers for the PW and GW yet so kept the 3 Mizunos in the mix. Only hit the Cobra PW once in the 2 rounds and haven't used the GW yet. Avg 9i distance looks to be 153 yds and PW single shot was 138. I have my 50 T22 at 110 yds, 54 at 90 and 58 at 70. So imagine I'll need to keep that GW in there and keep going with the 5 wedges.
  3. It’s obvious what really caused his injury…
  4. Cut Number : Even Tigers Score after the 2nd round: -2
  5. Also, in addition to to what everyone else already said, can't overlook grip. Perhaps grip weakened and trail hand is too much on top of the club?
  6. Decided to retire my 2019 PXG 0211s with KBS C-Taper Stiff. Went to a fitting looking for more loading and feel and got set up with the Cobra ForgedTec X with KBS Tour Lite shafts. 92mph 6i swing speed and with the Tour Lites got better feel and numbers with the Regular flex instead of Stiff. That was a bit odd to me but numbers don’t lie. Biggest drawback with the loft jacked X’s will be going back and reclubbing my bag. The 5 and 6i X’s were giving me same distances as my current gamer 3 (19deg) and 4 (22deg)G410 hybrids. So will probably need to take out hybrids, add an extra wedge and maybe a 5 or 7 wood now.
  7. I just accepted the fact I have to shoot the flag 3-4 times. I really wish it was a little better for intermediate targets as well but just have to use phone gps to get a rough idea and have a ballpark what I should expect to see in the rangefinder.
  8. I have been using the Western Birch hardwood tees. I’d say unless I lift it out off the drive and can’t find it, I’m usually 1-2 tees/round. One might crack after a few drives which then I’ll break it off and use it for par 3s. Usually I just look for broken tees on the Par 3s to use. But overall they are very durable and last.
  9. I live in South Florida. Summers get almost unbearably hot and humid and rates are cheap so I ride then for the extra shade. Winter months rates get ridiculous. For example my home course fee triples from $30 summer riding to $90 in the winter. (Some of the other courses I like to play hits $130 ish). Walking my home track knocks it down to a more tolerable $65. Can’t beat that for a winter rate. With the better weather walking is nice in winter. I will ride though when my work expense budget pays for the round
  10. Have a scheduled fitting on March 10 for new irons. Currently gaming 2019 PXG 0211 COR2 with KBS C-Taper 120 Stiff. Still a mid handicapper so looking to stay in the Players Distance category. Not really married to any particular manufacturer. All I do know is that I do tend to favor the slim line minimal/traditional type aesthetics. More of my interest lies in shafts how graphite, Steelfiber, or the new Axiom hybrid feels. I’d like to keep the stiffness but drop some shaft weight I think. My biggest concern is how my swing will be at fitting since I’ve been down to playing maybe once a month if I’m lucky.
  11. Been gaming the prior model Tour for a while. Love the ball. Recently picked up 2 doz of the 23 Tour and just played 6 rounds in Phoenix a little over a week ago for WMO. Almost identical performance for me. The 23 tours did feel slightly firmer and seem a few yards longer off the tee to me. Maybe going to from the 85 to 95 compression helps there (108 SS), or that was just due to the thinner more dry air playing at 1200’ elevation in Phoenix compared to sea level/dense air at home in Florida. Irons/wedges/putter really no noticeable difference to me. Still love the Maxfli Tour and will continue to be my gamer!!
  12. Hope you have a bunch of personal photos….”16 Shenanigans” photo book sounds like a #1 best seller golf retirement read!!
  13. Thursday Round 1 was crazy windy! Had to go to 16 to actually warm up in the sun. Our official post was 3rd deck looking at 17th green. Yesterday wind was even worse! The amount of shenanigans there is insane. Unfortunately (or fortunately) missed the streaker. IMG_7835.MOV
  14. I'd go down 1 size from your US size. I'm a 10.5 in just about everything else but a 43 (the 9-9.5) in ECCO. But if you really want to be certain use the instructions they have to measure. https://us.ecco.com/explore-ecco/guide/mens-size-guide-shoes.html?gclid=Cj0KCQiAic6eBhCoARIsANlox87Q8TGU1ULQhlNtvbr2pzKDLQ0vWXyzDA7Ghchd2LA_9-W_1Bqi8_0aAq-iEALw_wcB When I measured my foot like it said on the Ecco link, I measured 10.875" so that fits right to their 43.
  15. Well I've been quiet for a while. This was the first time I've touched my clubs in over 2 months. So I had no expectations heading right to the course with no practice. Of course I watch of a lot of online tutorial videos since I haven't been able to play. It could be good I forget some bad habits or it could be bad I have some of these video tips in my head. One I took to the course was a a tip for consistent ball position at setup. I played my home track (69.7/119) from the gold tees which plays a little under 6400 yds. It's a deceiving course even though there isn't much sand, the course is well protected by sawgrass. Greens are well protected on both sides and long. So if you're not in play, it's easy to rack up the strokes. .Shot 45/42 tying my personal best 87 with only one triple, 2 doubles, 8 bogeys and 7 pars/GIRs. That was with 6 penalties and even missed a couple 3-5 foot birdie putts. I will say I hit a lot more pure shots than bad shots with woods/irons. Hit more fades on the range as I implemented my new setup routine (usually more draw biased). Get out on the course, aim to play the fade and wind up hitting the draw. Setup more anticipating my draw and hit the fade. So played a lot on the edge of the fairways/rough. Hit a few 280 bombs with best drive hitting 300 yds (flat course not downhill) but 4 of my penalties were off the tee having no good sense of what ball flight I'd hit. Only missed 1 par 3 green which is a PB. My biggest struggle was wedges 50-100yd out, was thinking too much about setup and the ball position most often catching it thin in this range. Chipping recovery was on fire having 3 chips stopping within a foot of the hole for a one putt (33 putts total). So overall had fun and really happy with the outcome after the 2 month hiatus!! I just hope it's not another few months before I can get out again.
