  1. I am in a group of guys who have been going down for the last 15 years, it has changed a lot and there are a ton of really cool bars and restaurants to check out while you're down there. The Sly Fox in southern pines is an all time favorite, great food and tons of drink options. Would also suggest checking out Reds Corner Trucks and Taps. They have all kids of different food trucks and a bar area for drinks. They usually have pretty decent music as well. A great off-the-wall breakfast spot is the Pinehurst race track. Enjoy your trip!
  2. And also Thistle Dhu, the putting complex behind the club house. Have spend many hours shoeless with a beverage in hand around the putting course.
  3. Played Sunday and only had one birdie.. was a good one though. Long-ish par 4, 440 yards, with a dogleg right. Hit a pretty good drive and had 172 left into the flag. Hit a 5 iron (little into the wind) to within 2 feet and made the birdie put. Held up for a skat, which was nice.
  4. As others have said, there are a number of ways to fill out your bag. Only one of those ways will optimize your game. I would go to a fitter and focus on your driver and the fairway wood/hybrid question. An issue you might run into is trying to simulate the soupy conditions you mentioned prevail in your area. That could have a big impact on whether a fairway wood or hybrid makes more sense. Either way, enjoy the ride! its always fun tinkering with what should go in the bag.
  5. Played in a local two-man tournament on Sunday and we played well. Had two bad holes, back-to-back unfortunately. We were +3 through 14 then got to the 12th hole (started on 16) which is a short par 3 with water short and right and OB left. I hit a safety pull 15 yards left of the green but still in play, partner dropped one in the water. I hit what I, and everyone else in the group, thought was a great little bump and run to just low of the hole... well that thing just kept on rolling past the flag, off the green, and into the water. Partner didn't fare any better and we walked away with a 6. Not terrible, only 6 over with 3 holes left. Next hole was a longer par 5. Both my partner and I hit the fairway but were well back and both layed up. Partner hit a nice shot and was left with about 100 yards in. I proceed to shank a 5 iron just short of the road and never recovered from there. Partner flew the green with his next shot and had a very difficult up and down situation which he also did not recover from. Back-to-back triples and we are now 9 over, 6 over in the last two holes. We pared the next hole and bogeyed the last, which left us 10 over. Certainly not how we expected to finish after such a good start on a windy and cold day. All-in-all it was a great day and we still walked away with a little money for our efforts.
  6. Congrats to the testers chosen! I’m excited to see if they play as well as they performed in the tests.
  7. You’re spot on with the true links sizing. I was lucky enough to see that before I bought. I would add, the toe box on the ones I bought (same exact style and color as you) is super wide. If you have w narrow feet, these may not be the shoes for you. Also, can’t go wrong with a ping hoofer. I have the craz e lite and walk 2ish times a week. It’s the best walking bag I’ve found.

  8. For me, the irons (Mizuno 921 Hot Metal Pro) are very safe. I tried a number irons until I landed on these and they are a difference maker for me. Driver is another story. I have had my Sim now for over two years. It has been incredibly reliable and given me a ton of confidence off the tee. I have struggled in the past off the tee, leading to stretches where I didn't even carry a driver in the bag. If I can find something to replace the Sim that gives me the same confidence, I would make that change this year. Putter may not be safe either. I have had the opportunity recently to try a number of putters and I am realizing a toe hang blade is not the best situation for me. I have found myself gravitating to center shafted mallets. Something about the set up and take away just feels natural.
  9. I think this is the perfect answer. In my group, ready golf on the tee is only not observed is someone made a birdie or better on the previous hole. Otherwise, swing away if ready.
  10. Was able to get out yesterday for an hour. Spent 40 minutes at the short game facility hitting 20-25 yard chip shots to three different pin locations. As the grass starts to pop around the greens the playing conditions are becoming favorable to be a little more creative around the sometimes wetter green complexes. Spent the last 20 minutes putting from 10ft and in. I tried to find relatively straight lines to work on takeaway and follow through. Spent the last 5 minutes hitting lag putts to (hopefully) within 3 feet.
  11. After reading the article I can't really say I don't agree with the logic. I think it all boils down to your statement, "golf is whatever we want it to be". If your group is cool with removing balls from unfair lies (roots, footprints in bunkers, divots, etc.), then do that.
  12. It is definitely time for some changes. I believe I saw a stat that said they had upwards of 50 arrests this weekend, that is unacceptable. I am all for having a good time, believe me, but some of the videos of the patrons stumbling around and fighting are downright embarrassing. I think "grow the game" is a great initiative and we should all look for ways to make that happen. I do not think we should be growing the game in this way, though.
  13. How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score? - I have been playing since I graduated college in 2010, but playing seriously for the last 3 years. current Handicap is 12.1. What do you love about golf? - Being outside and enjoying time with my friends. I love that fact that we travel to play and get to experience new places in the name of golf. What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies? - I really enjoy the product reviews and being able to stay up-to-date with all things golf in one location. I am lucky enough to live pretty close to MGS HQ so I have met a few. Where are you from? What is your home course? - I live in Yorktown, VA and my home course is Williamsburg Golf Club. What are the best and worst things about golf in your region? - Best - we can generally play year round with a few exceptions. Worst - it can get WET! What do you do for a living? - I work for NASA How’d you pick your user name? - I am not creative, its my name shortened.
