  1. Thanks - That is what I thought but the GHIN options only allow for Green Hit or directional misses. Missed Short would be most applicable but I wish there was an option for "Missed - Penalty" or something in that realm.
  2. Hi Spies, I wanted to put a scenario out there about how a penalty stroke should be applied and how or whether it impacts GIR. I enter my hole-by-hole scores into GHIN with advanced stats and I realized that I wasn't 100% sure how to enter the GIR cell for a particular hole. Scenario: Par 5, hit second shot into water. Took my drop and hit the green with my next shot. Two putted. Score: 5 strokes + 1 penalty stroke = 6 I believe this would not count as a GIR because the penalty applies immediately in my stroke count, so I reached the green in four strokes, not three, corre
  3. Wow, sounds like a bad deal. Sorry you had to be the guinea pig but at least you're not out any $, just the hassle.
  4. That's the icing on the cake. My personal reference point is heavily trafficked LA / OC municipal courses and I don't think it can be understated how much better golf is when the pace of play issue is removed from the equation.
  5. Looks serene. What a phenomenal way to start a Friday.
  6. Hi Cory, I'm curious about this ClubCorp "Play Away" membership. Please share your experience with it as you go because it seems intriguing but also seems like you have to put in some leg work to get the value out of it. I recently cancelled my Long Beach Player's Club membership because I felt that the value was subpar. Thanks!

  9. How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score? I started playing golf when I was 10 or 11, so about 22 or 23 years. My dad introduced me to the game. The frustration and the addictive qualities of golf hit me almost immediately. During one of my first ever 9-hole rounds I missed a close putt and drove my putter head straight into the green. I handed my dad a great opportunity to teach me about golf etiquette and how to calmly deal with the fact that golf is a game of failure. Between high school and the age of 30 I only played a few times a year and would consistent
  10. Brendan, Long Beach, CA Handicap: 15.7 Current Model Wedges: Cleveland Tour Action 588, (49˚, 53˚ & 56˚) Appeal of a raw wedge: Testing the theory that raw wedges spin more and tracking the progression how quickly they develop rust and other signs of age.
  11. Wonderful setup @Nateyeight. Now the only thing left to do is put those tools to good use! Best of luck on the quest to get into the 80s!
  12. Congrats to a good looking group of testers!
  13. Yikes! That is terribly sad about the fatalities. Hopefully the road improvements are effective at reducing accidents and are tax dollars well spent. If you end up in a time crunch, could you possibly Uber or Lyft? As for the question of dirt collection in the Power Holes - I also do not find that to be an issue. Re the size of the club - I gamed Callaway X-14's for the last 16+ years, and then recently did a 6 week trial run with the Titleist T200's. I do think the D7 Forged fit in-between. Sleeker than my old Callaways and a bit more meat on the bone than the T200's. The T20
  14. Brendan, Long Beach, CA How I practice: Most of my putting practice is from actual rounds. At home I putt on a small area rug into a tin drinking cup. Experience w/Mats: Basically none - I had a poor quality putting mat many years ago. Desired Speed to Test: Fast (11-13 Stimpmeter)
  15. You guys are not wasting any time! The content you guys are putting together right off the bat is phenomenal.
