  1. I usually play Z-Star but have played the QST, and the regular Ionomer Q-Star. Its hard to come to a conclusion based on my performance,  but definitely a noticeable difference in consistency across the box between the premium balls, and the budget balls.

  2. I do think it's interesting that Cobra is trying to make MIM a buzz word in golf. Metal injection Molding has been around for a long time, and is widely criticized in the Firearms community. People often throw out that MIM sears in colt and kimber 1911s are junk, and only forged components should be used. It's closer to casting than it is forging. That being said, the pictures of these irons look fantastic, and I'm excited to see them in person and give them a smack :)

  3. The range got their new balls to coincide with the introduction of the Toptracer system, so they're pretty new. And to emphasize, I can hit a range ball to 150, and Toptracer says 133. And unfortunately, the difference is not linear. If I hit a partial wedge to 70, it says 40, if I hit to 200, it says 160, if I hit driver that carries between 25 and 250 (can only go by the markers, I don't know more precise than that, but on the course I can usually count on 240), it says 194. Until they get it calibrated better, I won't try to use it again.
    I've experienced the same issue with the toptracer lounge at my local course. We more or less use it to play virtual golf and games now. Calibration was iffy, it has improved, I still find in about a club short compared to where I'm hitting it to on the physical range. It's not perfect, and I wouldn't use it as a standard for gapping. Especially not on mats. Mine is indoor with heated bays and a bar right behind. I'm hoping to spend some more time there this winter. Beer and playing golf when there is snow on the ground will be worth the trade off in distance accuracy

  4. I think it's easy to downplay how valuable a great teacher is. I think I would personally get coached by the coach, and if I had a chance, play with the player. I think the middle ground might be choosing one of the champions tour players that have been in the game for a while, and still perform strong. Maybe Freddie, or Vijay.

  5. I watched a couple videos on breathing exercises to help with performance anxiety and lower heart rate, and have tried to use some of those on the course. You'd be amazed what having a clear head and good breathing will do to your golf game. I also believe they did a segment on breath control on a TXG video that I enjoyed as well. With so many mechanics and positions to worry about, sometimes the most effective way to play well is to calm down and have fun :)
