  1. This makes sense. Given the manufacturing processes that creates a harder surface in the DBM, do you think there is a noticeable difference in feel versus the TE? The TE's feel so buttery.
  2. @Eric Elliott now that you've had them for several months, how have the DBMs been working out? Feel, forgiveness, overall playability?
  3. I've been gaming the Wilson D7 Forged since last summer and I was pretty shocked when I saw they carry an MPF score of 438. But then again, my distance and lateral dispersion with them is pretty erratic. Seeing as how inexpensive the TE Forged heads are, I decided to build three 6 irons in different shafts for some testing. Even with an MPF of 788, I didn't expect the TE to be ultra forgiving given its compact shape. After four driving range sessions and one 9-hole round, I have been incredibly impressed by how much forgiveness this club provides. The carry distance is down a tad from my
  4. 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.
  5. 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
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. Looks serene. What a phenomenal way to start a Friday.
  9. 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!

  12. 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
  13. 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.
  14. 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!
  15. Congrats to a good looking group of testers!
