    I've tried several models, several times, and came away not liking the feel or performance. To me Scotty's are mostly looks (beautiful I admit), reputation and endorsements - and nothing unique in terms of performance. 

    I have tried to give them a chance and would like to have one but the feel just isn't their for me. Not to say I will never have as I do think they are cool collector items (all black jet set for example) but these putters that are released every couple years don't really have any new innovation for to want to spend money on them.

    Still hoping to get at least one of my kids into, m oldest is a bit interested but still a little young to get out there too much, but maybe soon.

    From what I had heard. When Netflix released the F1 Documentary (same film crew that is producing Full Swing) the amount of people that started following F1 racing grew substantially. Considering not the average person has the opportunity to drive 125+ MPH and has a better chance at playing a course that the PGA players play. I have high hopes this will continue to grow golf and how many people watch!

    I wonder how it would compare to drive to survive as that is the model they were kinda following. 

    I am sure they will have drama packed episodes. If the players agreed to be filmed it is with the understanding that all aspects of the season will come out. Good, bad and the ugly

  4. Has anyone used Arccos as their every round GPS but without the tags? I really think Arccos user interface is spot on simple and not to much data thrown at you however I am not a fan of the tags. (I feel like they change the weight of the clubs). I switched over to GolfShot, although the gps is great, I think it lacks in the data it give you post round. Wish it had options for you to input if you missed the green left, right, short, long etc....

    well considering the ap2 and now t100 are the most played irons on tour they do use them. 
     

    Not to mention the i210s that are in several Ping staffer bags.l which are definitely more game improvement design than not.

    It’s perception that all pros play cb or blades or the at they play the longest lofted and least forgiving drivers.

    One doesn’t need to play less forgiving irons ever if they don’t want to and ball flight laws are what they are regardless of the head design. Having more spin will make some shots easier than with al low spin head but anyone that understands how to create a shot shape can do it with any club.

    That is true. Especially with WITB very few tour players use blades. When I think game improvement irons I think of  Taylormade Stealth, Titleist T400 etc..... going off MPF Ratings even T100 are considered game improvement irons lol

    The ball flight laws don’t change because of a club design. One can manipulate the ball up and down or sideways with any club. Do certain designs lend to it being easier? Yes but it can still be done with any club.

     

    Practically what I just said. Less forgiving clubs will allow you to hit certain shot shapes if that is what you are after once you reach a certain level of ability. It being easier with certain clubs would be a reason to ditch the game improvement clubs. Why don't tour pros use game improvement clubs if ball flights will always remain the same? From my understanding game improvement clubs have a lower center of gravity which helps players get the ball in the air to maximize potential distance. 

     

    Work ability and Feel vs Height and Forgiveness is all it comes down too.... 

  7. I would say jump to less forgiving irons when you want to start hitting certain shot shapes. I 100% agree with getting fit to see what you hit more consistently as far as distance and dispersion, but as you get "better" forgiving clubs will just be what they are..... forgiving.

     

    I will say I have always wondered when I play against people that are single digit HCs like me that play very forgiving clubs if they would be just as good and/or if I had more forgiving clubs if I would be better?

     

     

    Golf is weird, just get it in the hole 🤣

  8. I think it really depends up to you on what you want out of a lesson. I truly believe you have two types of people in golf. Those that want to be told what to do and those that want to figure out what to do. I started playing golf 3 years ago and I in everything have always been able to and wanted to do my own research. There is countless videos, articles and information out there that you can learn from but with this comes a lot of trial and error. Trying things just to find out that they don't work. To me this is why I don't believe much in swing lessons because unless you have money to blow on countless coaches till you find the one you CONNECT with it's just a waste of money. Many coaches have a one size fits all concept which is not true we are all different in shape and size, have different flexibility capabilities and golf isn't a sport where one motion works for everyone.

     

    I really enjoy the content that Pozark Golf on YouTube makes because it's based off of feels in golf not so much positions. To me being an athlete growing up it's easier for me to remember a feel than to be think about if my left wrist is suppose to be supinated, shoulder externally rotated and back pronated.

    When I really want to geek out about a swing or position Athletic Motion Golf is a good channel to understand the why in golf:

  9. Out in West Texas we are fortunate to be able to play year round with the low temps in the winter getting to about 55ish. Still consider it an off season since golf related events die down:

    • Mental Game and Focus: I want to be able to stay engaged in rounds even when there is no money on the line or isn't a tournament round
    • Gym: Although I go often I would like to try and do more golf related work outs for core and stability 
    • 140 and in: feel like this is the difference between me touching high 70s sometimes to consistently being in the 70s

  10. Has anyone else tried these out and/or made the switch?

     

    After years of using a Super Stroke Pistol GT Tour, I made the switch to a Garsen Quad Tour grip and never looing back! The flat edge on the bottom of the grip is small but I feel like it has improved my alignment and quieted my hands immensely.

    I have always been a above average putter but sometimes didn't have that 100% confidence that my hands were at the correct position on the putter. I usually set my grip first from the bottom rather than the top and with the flat bottom of the Garsen putter I know to always let the putter rest on the middle phalanges bone of my index finger (middle bone) then wrap my hands around the putter.

  11. To a certain extent I think wedge fittings are more important than iron fittings. I think the main focus of irons if to get your distances and ball flight dialed in but the major of weekend golfers don't hit many greens. I know in my case when I started playing what helped me be in the 80s more often was not being on the driving range blasting irons at targets. I saw the most improvement when I started working on my wedge yardages. 

     

    they say wedge gapping should be between 4 and 6 degrees. My PW is a 46 and my GW is a 52 then I go 56 and 60. I still get the same 10 yard gapping in between my clubs.

    Well, I remember saying in the Dollar Driver Review thread that there was a place for a demo program in golf, and apparently Dick's Sporting Goods and Golf Galaxy agree, as they've relaunched a demo program. You can see the selection or clubs here but the cliff notes are as follows.

    Brands: Callaway, Cobra, TaylorMade, Titleist, and Ping

    Options: Drivers, Fairway Woods, Hybrids, Irons

    Cost: $25 for woods/FW/Hybrid, $50 for Irons, $40 dollar for two club pack

    Time: Up to 2 weeks, if you don't return you get charged full retail price.

    Going to be interesting to see how this works for the company. I'm sure they wouldn't do it if they didn't think it would be profitable in some way.

    WOW! that is good news for those unsure about the clubs they want to get!

  13. Don't take such a slow back swing that allows you to think about positions or where your club/hands are. The range is for that the course is to play. Just like MLB players that have milliseconds to even think about their swing if they think about their swing they will miss the ball. Golfers aren't waiting on a ball but our tempo is everything for a smooth swing. 

     

    My only suggestion is that if your set up doesn't feel right step out of the shot. Knowing something doesn't feel right is going to be a disaster because 1.) you already know something is off and 2.) you are going to try and compensate or tweak something that will contribute to a big disaster

  14. Strictly just use ProV1x. I don't know if it's the best ball for me but I think since it's the ball that I have played since I started I know how the ball will react around the greens and one certain shots. TP5 golf balls I will say last longer for some reason but I think the logo on them is to big.

  15. I've been using Arccos for the last couple of years and my experience has been great and it performs just as it says. However when I first started using it I was more focused on how far I was hitting my clubs since I didn't have a clue. To now I strictly just use it for the apple watch gps function. Although the tags are small I do notice a difference in feel when I don't have the tag on my clubs to when I do. Which is why I want to ditch it. So my question is:

     

    What golf GPS do y'all use and do you use the apple watch integration with it?
