    I'm still working through it, but IMO Arccos sensors. The number of missed shots during a round is diabolical, and I've tried all of the support strategies and suggested fixes on their website (and other sites that propose fixes). Perhaps the software updates that have occurred of late have made improvements (I haven't played for a few months), but at this point in time, there's little chance of choosing to renew my subscription once it expires.

    Were you using the Link or phone to detect shots? I had the link and missed a lot of shots. Worked with support and turned out there was an issue with my Link (played a couple rounds with phone in pocket that worked much better for shot detection) so they sent me a new one. Some other tips, the sensors are photosensitive activated by sunlight so overcast days/early morning/twilight may miss some shots. Also if you have to pull multiple clubs from the bag, carry them upside down until you chose your club. I then take my towel and cover the sensor of the club I'm not using. I was on the verge of pulling the plug myself until I got the new link. 

  2. Another fan of Snell here. I gamed Snell MTB-X for a couple seasons. Also depends on what you’re looking for in terms of launch/spin for your swing speed. Definitely check out last years MGS ball test.

  3. Recently left my Callaway Jaws MD5 58-10 lob on 18 at the last course I played. Called them and somehow no one turned anything in. So needless to say now I’m the market for a new wedge. I use that club a lot around the green so it was probably about time anyways since I’ve been playing it just shy of 2 years.

    I live in South Florida where is usually always soft and humid/wet. So really leaning towards the Ping Glide 3.0 in the same 58-10 for wet spin performance based on the MGS data (Also seen the same findings on the wet spin of Glide from some Canadian folks).

    Really I should probably replace my 50 and 54 deg, both Jaws MD5 as well. At 90% or so I’m at 105, 90, and 75 yds with my 50-54-58 setup. Probably going to adjust my game so my 50 deg for shots 50-100yds out and 58 deg for 50 yds and in. The 54 deg I’ll use exclusively just for the sand and probably go lower bounce since the sand is usually damped or packed here. Never really play in fluffy stuff. Probably stick with the Glide for 50, maybe even a Vokey, but not really sure what to look at exclusively for the sand. Any suggestions for a sandy?

  5. So I haven't been able to play much really only being able to get 1 round/month Aug-Oct. Maybe not a bad thing, let bad habits die as I was gearing up to attend Kirk Junge's Setup4Impact single plane 3 day school last week. School wise, form and technique was not a major issue for me. Kirk spent time with me and turned out he identified ball position, alignment, and aim issues. I thought I had the ball forward at address (or at least felt like it) but turned out it was still pretty much middle/back ball position and alignment when I thought was slightly left was actually more closed right.....perfect recipe for the fatties and hooks I often hit. He also recommended for me the Jumbomax Ultralite grips to help quiet over rotation of hands during release which I'll mention shortly. Ultimately, extremely valuable to get that feedback. Here's a video of my refined swing. http://www.v1sports.com/Academy/include/player.asp?academy=KIRK&accountid=2933953&swingid=5874970 
     
    I got to play a round (at least 9) yesterday at TPC Eagle Trace in Coral Springs. Pace of play was very slow and as my twosome played straight through the turn skipping past 2 4somes of senior couples in which one group complained to the course. Even skipping them, there were 4 more senior couple 4somes ahead. Would have been a 5+ hr round. So the course came to talk to us and said they understood the slow backup and offered to take us back to the front to play again (wide open). So we just messed around on the 2nd nine front. Course conditions were kind of bad as the greens were not cut and sanded (so very slow), and it's been rainy the past few days so very soft ground. 
     
    On to golf....yesterday was my first round post school and proceeded to shoot my best 9 ever with a 6-over 42 (front 9 was 36.0/133). 4 pars, 4 bogeys, and 1 double with 15 putts. I had a lot of fun playing rather than grinding for a score. Even with a low tee height and, I am still launching very high with driver with steep descent. I had several 250 yd carries with no run out after decent. The ball was often partially embedded or literally 4 inches from the landing ball mark. After a few more rounds to hopefully to see a consistent swing, it will be time for a driver fitting. Kirk Junge also did recommend looking at lower driver loft (current setup is 10.5 deg adjusted to 9.6). 
     
    Per school recommendation, I put the JumboMax Ultralite grips (size XS) on my driver, 3H, 7i, and 58 deg to test them out. I was really nervous about the club weighting and swing weight because the JM ULs are 30g lighter than the MCC+4 Midsize I had. So I said screw it and just went with no weight adjustment (lead tape under grip) as I figured the 30g lighter overall club weight decrease would offset any higher swingweight head feel from the lighter grips. Took a some range warm up and a couple holes getting used to. But ultimately I really loved the feel especially on the driver and hybrid. Significant help on perceived grip pressure (I could really grip and get after it without feeling like I had a death grip in transition). Result was no hooks, mostly baby draws or pretty straight!!!! I did have one or two fades which I think was more of having the ball too far forward in those cases. I hit my best hybrid shots ever. Irons will take a little more getting used to as I didn't hit my 7i too much. Overall, no hesitation going to regrip the rest of my bag with the JumboMax Ultralites. Really can't wait to get more rounds in!!!

    I know it isn’t swing path; my path is pretty consistent 2-3* in to out.   I do struggle with face control.  The coach I was working with did identify an issue -  when I initiated the downswing my right elbow separated and caused me to do some funky things in the downswing to route the club into the ball.  The result was toe strike and over rotation of the face.  

    I just finished 3 days of a school with an instructor. I have had a similar issue with in to out path and face control (often too closed). I found keeping my head behind the clubface (head position between middle of stance and back foot) helped keep my right arm tucked giving me the feeling of my right shoulder coming finishing under my chin.

    Just curious if anyone else received the left dot survey from Titleist?  

    Survey submitted as well. I’d have no problems making The Dot my gamer.

    I swear I was looking at my stock yardarge log!!

    So got a round in yesterday at my home track (69.9/123). Shot a personal best 86 (42/44) Caveat I had a great swing day....or was is the ball switch to the Titleist Left Dot?!?!?! Actually, trough some foot spray and a fitting that didn't go very well, I figured out I was striking off the heel resulting in my hooks. I came to realize I had balance/tilt (causing me to slightly fall forward) and weight distribution issues (leading to even more neg AoA through bag). So this round I went with a little more forward tilt getting balance more towards middle/ball of feet. Also, as I bump my hip towards target making sure weight was more 50/50 (instead of more loaded towards front foot) and that my head was positioned more between the middle of stance and back foot at address. 

    Was going to be an interesting day also considering my rangefinder battery decided to die on the 1st hole so had to rely on Arccos GPS for the day. Distance wise off the tee with the Titleist Left Dot, I didn't see any significant distance difference compared to CSX LS. I did notice my tee shots were more straight/baby draw than the hooks I usually have been hitting. So definitely better dispersion getting out there about 250 avg. Hit 8/13 fairways with the big stick, another PB. Trajectory was nice with this ball. Not too high and not too low. So tough to fully give credit to the ball, considering the setup changes made.

    My biggest struggle of the day was with 3 and 4 hybrids. My 2 blowup holes were par 5s where I carded my only 7 and only 8 for the day from duffing a couple hybrids. Really need to work on the ball positioning/AoA with these clubs. 

    Irons wedges and putter is where the Left Dot shined for me. I was gaming the Bridgestone Tour B X for several months as I loved the distance off the tee and irons, but the short iron/wedge feel and ability to hold greens left a lot to be desired for me. The switch to the CSX LS from Tour B X after the MGS ball test gave be the improved feel with the short clubs and was able to hold greens again. Drop and a couple hops sometimes a little roll. The Left Dot just felt so buttery off the club face. Hit some of my best iron shots this round. I held greens drop and stop (within 2ft from ball marks) with 7i from 165-170 out down through my wedges. Yet another PB with 8/18 GIRs for the day.

    Putter roll of the Left Dot was true and smooth and I felt like the ball was easy to maintain speed control with little stroke effort, whereas the CSX LS for me has a little more pop and firmness off the putter face resulting in working a little more to control speed. So the stroke felt awesome, but ended up with 36 putts (vs 31-32 putts previous rounds at my course with CSX LS) for the round, as hitting the greens and stopping left me with more lag putts (however was able to consistently be within 2ft or so of hole with 1st putt). So maybe just a minor adjustment shooting for back of green distance instead of distance to flag should help bring that in line.  

    I'll continue to alternate rounds at my home track between the Titleist Left Dot and the CSX LS to get a better feel with misses. High hopes to continue mid 80s play and after my Nov lessons (Going to see Kirk Junge), that drops to low 80s!

    Guessing by the lack of response so far it was Steel Rwseve… 😬

    Haha had an 8am tee time this morning…..didn’t go to the round today. 8:20 tee time tomorrow morning and then heading back over to hang on the 15th green again.

    Yeah I realized that after but couldn’t figure out how to delete the post…just imagine it’s 10pm you’ve had a few beverages then out of nowhere the FedEx Cup shows up to your private party at your house past its curfew 🙂

    Hope you have security in that area of Atlanta.

    Right on the edge of East Lake it is not bad. Very nice actually. 
     

    So here are the teaser photos from the practice round today (didn’t watch much of the Charity Match).

    Notable Notes:

    First and Foremost DJ shaved his beard and went baby face!!

    Rahm and Bryson played around together since they are paired anyways.

    Xander was walking (little bent over with extra gold around his neck) with Cantlay.

    Lots of practice out of the sand all over the course.
