  1. I like the ping app. I had an old iPhone and bought the cradle on ebay. I used it to putt in the house last winter. My putting has really improved Sent from my VTR-L09 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  2. I enjoyed the experience. It was my first ever fitting. The guy was a certified professional. That day I was hitting horrible slices because I always thought that I had a 160 mph ball speed. My friend has an HD golf simulator and it measures ball speed. When I got there on gc quad it was 155 mph. I tried hard to get it to 160 and was trying to kill the ball. I did tell him this. Titleist or cobra or any other club were not brought out. I trusted the fitter and was open to try anything. I think it's my swing plane. I am going to work hard this winter on building a repeatable driver swing. I t
  3. That day I had a bad slice because I was trying to get more ball speed. I told the fitter this was not my usual shot. He had me first try a Taylormade M5 or 6 can't remember and I couldn't get it off the ground. Had me try the epic flash sub zero which was nice but sounded like crap. Then he pulled out a Ping G410 and I was hooking it like I am now. The mizuno was really good and I had consistent ball speed which is why he suggested it and even though my swing wasn't it's usual self that day I was told that walking into a fitting with a bad swing is better because the fitter can try to curb th
  4. I don't want to be the guy that tries to kill it. I know that doesn't work. I'd like to be able to get to at least 80% of my power but right now I can only control it at about 50%. I'm leaving a lot on the table so I want to get the most out of my 80% swing. If that's 260 yards I'm happy but right now I'm having trouble getting to 240 and I know I can do better than that
  5. I agree about chasing number. I assume my 5 iron should be higher than it is (at 12 yards like you said it would bring me around 200 yards) I try not to swing hard but fast like you say but I think my body doesn't understand what I'm trying to do lol I certainly do NOT want to blame the fitter for this. It's my swing, I own up to it. I know I'm doing something wrong and will get a video going hopefully tonight (it's raining here)
  6. I did. I told him my usual ball flight was a light fade which I like and miss because I could swing normally and it went where I intended most of the time. In terms of consistency, I am pretty much around the middle of the club, maybe off the center by millimeters. I don't generate enough ball speed to hit 300 yards so I'm not trying to do that. I want to be able to get control of my shot again. 1 thing I forgot to mention. He had placed the order with Mizuno for a 10.5 degree head but I got a 9.5 He told me to adjust it to a 10.5 but if I'm not mistaken that closes the face more, right?
  7. I was fitted on a monitor from Golf Town (I'm in Canada) by a certified pro. That day I was swinging horribly and had big slices. I was butt hurt because I always thought I had 160 mph ball speed when in fact with dry ball data it was 155 so I was trying to swing harder to get the 160 mph ball speed. If I take easy swings I am a decent ball striker. The second I try to give it some more juice I'm all over the place. My irons aren't so bad. I do sometimes flub shots here and there but I'm fairly comfortable. At the club, I was hitting my 3 hybrid instead of my driver because
  8. Guys, A little history: I was fitted this summer (for the first time ever) for a driver. I ended up with a Mizuno ST190 with a Fujikura Atmos TS 65g Stiff shaft. Although I really enjoyed my experience a the fitting. I have NOT been able to hit it all summer long! Now, before I sit here and blame the club - I am the issue. I can't swing this driver any harder than maybe 50%. I get a low hook almost every time I swing it. If I try to swing harder - I can spray the ball all over the course! left, right and rarely center. I have completely lost my driver swing. I've fought with it
  9. I'm right on the fence for this as my ss is 105 but the ST190 won for me. I was fitted on a lm inside smacking my own tp5x balls and I was swinging like real poop that day. I played Thursday after work and hot 10 of 14 fairways for the 1st time ever so I don't know about everyone's experiences here but for me it seems to work
  10. Your first name Lou - State - New Brunswick, Canada - Your current model of putter Odyssey O-WORKS Marksman 33.5" - Is putting a strength or weakness of your game Has been a strength since getting the Marksman
  11. I've got a counterbalanced flatso on my marksman putter and being it's my first experience with a counterbalanced grip I'm really enjoying it. I'm not ready to say that I have distance control issues like a few guys here have mentioned but I don't have enough rounds in yet to completely disagree. Time will tell but so far I'm not making any changes Sent from my VTR-L09 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  12. I'm a Marksman fan but I'm not crazy about the line on this one. The line on my O-WORKS putter is wider and looks easier to align with. I can tell when my face isn't square with that line Sent from my VTR-L09 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  13. I wasn't to surprised as it did very well last year but I think I've finally found the putter I've been searching for since I started. I love the marksman and it's just about my favorite club in my bag right now (well, that and the new Mizuno driver[emoji6]) Sent from my VTR-L09 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  14. Worst thing about my fitting a couple weeks ago was finding out that I thought I had Rick Sheils ballspeed when I actually have Crossfield's lol. In all seriousness, I really, really, really like TXG. For club reviews, these guys are the best of the bunch. I do like Rick and Mark and the others mentioned are all good but TXG really take it to another level Sent from my VTR-L09 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
