  1. I have a loft lie machine and have used it mostly to tweak and then recheck loft and lie settings on my wedges. For my iron set it was used initially to adjust lofts for gapping & occassionally to make sure lofts and the delivered lie angles havent changed (2* flat).
  2. Is the ball sitting high enough on the "carpet like green stuff" that you are making contact higher on the face taking away a little distance?
  3. Before spending $$ on a central unit I would compare the cost of a couple mini split units, (especially if any ductwork needs replacing). There are mini split compressors that can supply multiple air handlers so you can have a "zoned" system if you want. That is what we are doing for the shore house (small, 2 br cottage). It is an easier install since getting the replacement central air handler in the attic space would be a big issue for us.
  4. For the 5i thru 9i, I vote for the lead tape usage to get them dialed in as exact as you want after installing the midsize grips. The 919 forged even has a nice shelf that is a perfect place for the tape. As others mentioned you probably wont notice a playing difference but that OCD part of your brain that has you obsessing about it will be satisfied they are the same.....not that I know anything about that.... You can even locate the tape toward where your miss generally is, toe side or heel side. For the wedges I think feel preference rules the day. Compared to my 4-9 I prefer heavier wedges as I generally don't take full swings with them. For me, heavier (and stiffer shafts) means better aim; others may prefer lighter and more flex in their wedges. If you now have good distance and target control from the wedges then I wouldn't change them and make those specs your baseline for future replacements.
  5. Looks Awesome!! Couple questions....Do you use a layer of something between the foam and the concrete floor to allow for some airflow? (That is concrete, isnt it?) What is the mini split unit that was used? I need to look into something similar for the area above our garage.
  6. Thanks for asking. She surprised everyone (herself included! ) and is bàck home with us after two very tough weeks in the hospital. Once discharged after a week of in home rehab she is back to short walks with using the walker and eating frequent small portions. Its been a difficult month but things are stabilized to the new normal. I may even get out to play 9 once in a while!
  7. Is it for indoor & outdoor use? If indoors does the $2k include mats, nets, etc and is there a need / interest for simulator graphics if your weather gets bad for long stretches?
  8. I played a lot of baseball before (and after) picking up golf as a youngster. Rather than being a pull hitter, I would hit the ball where it was pitched which I believe made it easier to translate to a golf swing. I was trying to drive the bat through the back of the ball toward any field depending on the side of the plate it was pitched. We had drills where we would release the bat toward the field we wanted to hit to. So my swing thought when learning golf was to come straight into the back of the ball and release my hands and my club (but in thought only) down the target line. There is a lot of muscle memory at work after hitting hundreds of thousands of balls but it has worked for me over the years.
  9. Happy Birthday Folks!!!!!
  10. The first time I played golf was at a family owned lighted par 3 course in Limerick, PA. This was way back in the '70's. Who knew that our little country bumpkin area was so far ahead of its time?? There was a driving range and putt putt course on the site as well. It was a popular spot after dark. It has evolved over the years and is still there.
  11. Plus 1000% on the comment by @chisag regarding acceleration. Sooo many times i see a bad "half" swing by somebody because they take a full swing length and decelerate at impact causing poor results. Its not 1/2 swing speed its half swing length and accelerate through impact.
  12. Ummm...in this fantasy i just won close to $2B. Do you think there will be other members at my golf course???? There will be me and whoever i invite and thats it. And there will be a staff that will have to deal with the normal headaches of maintaining a course so i wont have to. My first hire will be golfspy_cg2 so i can try out all the clubs he orders with his fully funded equipment budget!!
  13. @ the lessons part! I'd buy a golf course.
  14. I use whatever I have found on the tee box or cart - wood, plastic, resin, etc. Broken ones for anything less than driver and whole ones (or long broken ones) that get the ball to the correct height on the driver face. I don't think I have ever bought a tee. In school when I worked at the course I would load up on tees left in the carts, I was the unintentional supplier for our golf team.
  15. Shipping co's have been hit or miss for me. Fed ex & ups to the house is good, usually the same driver and he drops rhe stuff on the covered deck. They like our driveway because there is enough room to turn around a 10 wheel dump truck and they dont have to back up into the road. Only when they subcontract delivery around the holidays when its super busy and we dont have the regular drivers are there any issues with stuff being left in the rain. UPS freight wins for worst delivery for work stuff in my experience. Ive had multiple orders totaling over $250k get ruined in delivery or lost for weeks by them. And these were 12-16 week production cycle items! One shipment looked like they dragged it behind the truck rather than in it. 200lb hunks of steel engineered to withstand earthquakes were ruined by UPS!
