  1. Hi Folks, Last summer I bought approx. 150 new callaway Chromesoft balls(2019 version). In a very good golf shop in my country and a very good deal, just €1,50 per ball. I am quite new and afterwards I saw on this forum and read all the topics about these 2019 chromesoft version and the whole off centre story. Although I am really happpy with these balls, great ball of the tee and enough feel and spin for the short game. But now I am wondering how should an off-centre ball effecting my game and how could I see/feel it? really curious for your opinion and should I continue to play with this ball???
  2. I need to adjust my irons this year, perhaps my wedges as well. Altough the shops and club fitters are closed right now due to Covid-19 lockdown. My current Bag Driver Callaway Epic Flash Subzero stiff shaft. fitted July 2020. 3 Wood TM M4 Stiff Shaft, reshafted in July 2020. Hybrid 3 Callway Mavrik stiff shaft. TM GAPR iron 2( but do not put it often in the bag. does not feel really right at the moment. Irons TM p790 4/pw regular shafts Vokey 7 Wedges 52, 56, 60 degrees Putter Scottey Cameron blade Ball Callaway Chrome Soft First I need to reshaft my irons. Swing speed improved to 105mph Driver swingspeed, Iron7 85 mph. Or I need to reshaft my current irons to stiff or buy new clubs . I really want to try the new p770 or p790 irons with stiff shafts at a club fitter to feel and see the difference with my current clubs. Secondly I need to look at the gap between my PW and my 52 gap wedge. I have a distance gap of 115/120 yards - 100 yards. 15/20 yards. Gives me too many doubts during pitch shots of 105/110 yards. Is this gap to big? Perhaps I would like to replace the wedged to 58/54/50 degrees wedges. This will also depends on my new irons. Could you please give me some advice?? THNX
  3. Greetings from the Netherlands, I am not fully new to MGS but new to this forum. I am 35 years old and living in the Netherlands. In 2017 I picked up the golf clubs, initially to play golf with my dad. But I got really addicted to the game. I have played many sports in my life. Football(socces), Tennis and since I went to Uni I play Rugby, and still do. I really like team sports but golf gives me definitely something else. It is so technically and you are never finished to improve your game. How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score? I am playing golf now for 3.5/4 years and playing HCP 8.6. I have tried to half my hcp every year, what will be more difficult right now. Last year I went from 16 to 8.6 hcp. My goal for 2021 will be a hcp around 5 and I wil be more than happy. What do you love about golf? Almost everything. never finished to improve your game. The perfect game to play with friends and family, level, hcp, or age is not important. Lovely to be outdoors any enjoy the nature. THE perfect game in Covid-19 time!! What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies? Want to learn from other players regarding material and training drills. Current topics I have on my mind; - need to adjust my irons shafts from regular to stiff. Bought my P790 irons 1.5 year ago but My swing speed developed to 85MPH iron 7 and 105mph driver swing speed. Doubting to buy replace my shaft in my current irons or to buy new ones, perhaps p770 and sell my current irons. - My vokey 7 wedges are 60, 56 and 52. but the gap between my pitching wedge and my gap wedget is quite big. PW 115/120 yards and my 52 gapwedge max 100 yards. Perhaps I need to replace them with 58, 54 and 50 degrees wedges.... Where are you from? What is your home course? Utrecht, The Netherlans the fourth biggest city in the Netherlands, quite central with a lot of golf course with 30 min drive. What are the best and worst things about golf in your region? The Best. A lot of different kind of golf course in my region. The Worst. A lot of people do not know the rules. What do you do for a living? I am a International Sales Manager for an US Multinational in the field of Sterilization services, mainly medical devices and pharma packaging.
  4. Thank you for your reply. My current Driver, hybrid and my reshafted 3wood are fitted by a specialist. Really happy with it, less dispersions and more controle. In the netherlands we have some golf shops, but the fitting is not that brilliant. Than you have to go to a niche specialist. Most of the time a bit more expensive, but much more expertise. I think I will try some clubs for free at the golf shop with a trackman, just for the feeling and will go the special fitter to get my shafts done or buying new clubs ;-).
  5. Dear all, This will be my first post on this forum. I am quite new in the game, but I love it! I am playing golf for 3,5 years and it goes pretty well I think . Although the familiar frustrations and struggles, I really enjoy the game. First I had a starters set of Wilson, but bought the TM p790 irons in July 2019. My irons were fitted and has regular shaft dynamic gold 105. Due to the fact my game improved quite well and my swing speed increased a lot I think I need to reshaft my irons to stiff Shafts. I already replaced/reshaft my hybrid, 3 woods and driver. hereby my stats; 35 years old Playing right handed, but I am a lefty... played a lot of sports during my life. Current Bag Driver Callaway Epic Flash SZ stiff shaft 3 wood TM M4 (reshafted summer 2020 to stiff) hybrid 3 Callaway Mavrik Max sitff shaft Irons 4/PW TM P790 2017 version regular shaft dynamic gold 105 Vokey wedges 52,56,60 degrees Scotty Cameron putter HCP January 2018 38hcp January 2019 28hcp July 2019 19.9hcp(bought the TM p790 2017 version. 4/pw regular shaft as present of a hcp of <20 ;-). January 2020 15.7hcp August 2020 9.7hcp(replaced my driver and hybrid, reshafting my 3wood to stiff. since october 8.6hcp goal for next year hcp around 5??? if possible off course. I am able to measure my swing speed with a garmin device. Swing Speed september 2019 driver 92mph / 7 iron 79 mph June 2020 driver 95mph/ 7 iron 79 mph December 2020 driver 104mph/ 7 iron 88mph Since september I go very often to the gym to improve strenght and I bought a speed swing stick to improve my swing speed. Perhaps this helped a lot. Ball flight quite high and most of the time a draw. If I miss, it is always left. Is it possible my regular shafts influences my miss on the left?? and will a stiff shaft help my game? Currently I am doubting what to do, I wanna go to clubfitter to reshaft my irons (400-500 euros?) or buy new clubs (1000-1200 euros?) and sell my current clubs(400-500 euros?) If I want to buy new ones I think about the p790 2019 version of p770. At least irons which I could play for 4/5 years. Or do you have another good suggestion?? Due to the fact I just play golf for 3.5 years. My game and swing changed and will changes a lot. In opinion this is some very difficult to combine with your material and what suits you the best for the moment and for the near future. What is your experience with this? What should you do and could you give me some advice regarding my irons and shafts? Cheers from the Netherlands!!!
