  1. UPDATE AFTER SPEAKING WITH PXG FITTING REP. Matthew replied back last night and they will be in my area in September. We will get together then. For now we went over settings to ensure everything was setup the way it should be based on my fitting. All is ok there. We also discussed ball flight and feel of the driver. Nothing really adds up. We will get together in September to get to the bottom of it. For now, I will continue to play my old tried and true M3 and work with the PXG on the range along with my instructor to see what we can figure out. In a few weeks we will get some GC Quad numbers like I mentioned before. That should give some kind of direction for sure. I will update if anything changes.
  2. Good luck, let us know how it goes. I will certainly do the same. I actually just sent an email to fitter letting him know what is going on. I have asked if he wants to wait for GC Quad data or collect his own with Trackman. I will update once he replies.
  3. Circumstance is a little different in my location. The fitter is a regional traveling fitter. He has a rotation for his region. One of the disadvantages of living in a smaller area of the state. I have no doubt they will be more than helpful figuring the issue out.
  4. Glad to hear yours worked out in the end. I believe both of your points are valid for sure. I talked about it with my instructor Saturday and he seems to think it is something similar to your 2nd issue. Not in the flex so much, but the kick point. Apparently my previous shaft had a low kick point and the new has a mid kick point. As the shafts were gradually changing in the fitting, all was fine. We are going to look at some GC Quad numbers during my next session, I will contact PXG once I have those. I believe it will give both PXG and myself real data to determine what the best course of action is for driver.
  5. Glad to hear all positives. As a heavily tattooed golfer, my experience has been mostly positive in recent years. A new normal I suppose. It has been years since I have encountered a "Judge Smails" on the course. Maybe they have all moved their attention to music on the course
  6. @GIRplus3Putt and I had an exchange regarding "looks" on courses because we have tattoos. Can anyone relate? Have a funny story? What are your thoughts on the matter? Anything tattoo/golf related, let us here it.
  7. Southwest Va. Roanoke/Lynchburg is probably the most known cities around me.
  8. Oh yea, I know the looks you're referencing for sure. I have a good laugh every time it happens. Surprisingly, I have been engaged in more positive conversations at nicer courses than public tracks regarding the ink. So far I am very happy with the setup. Had a lesson Saturday, take away is working on not shutting the face at impact. My coach gave me a new drill to work on. After working on it with him during the lesson and a range session Sunday morning, I am seeing even more distance and height on the irons with good strikes. We will see if it transfers over to the course and keep working on the drill.
  9. Thanks. I think PXG gets a bad wrap just because they were expensive. I don't believe you were paying for "better equipment", you were paying for status. Is the equipment good? From my limited use of it, yes. In case of the irons, very good in my opinion. I like supporting businesses who give back, Bob Parsons seems to do a lot of that. He also seems to be no BS and a stand up guy. I have no doubt PXG will listen to my concerns and come up with a resolution. I am outside of the 30 day window, but we will see. Here is a picture of the putter. I love the feel and weight of it. The PXG jumbo grip is very nice also. I think Lamkin makes them, I would have to double check that though. Getting the right length, loft, and style of putter can make a huge difference. Since using the new putter, Arccos has me at +2.1 strokes putting and averaging 32.8 putts per round. Vast improvement putting for me. I am hoping to get down to a 10 hcp once the driver is figured out. If not, I am confident in the good ole M3 for now.
  10. I was fitted by a PXG rep. in early May on an outdoor range with Trackman. Once we narrowed down what worked best for me, everything was going longer and tighter. Of course I saved a ton of cash via their full bag promotions compared to normal prices. About a week later, I had my sticks. This impressed me to say the least after hearing all the stories of people waiting weeks/months for clubs. See the full specs in my WITB signature. With the build and ship time off to a good start, I went to the range. For full disclosure the range I went to had the grass closed, mats were used. Same as the fitting, irons were going long and straight. The irons being my first set of forged clubs felt butter soft and pure shots were just even better. Mishits were noticed more than before with my old 2017 TM M1 irons. I was seeing about a club longer than my old irons on good shots. On to the fairways. Again, results were just like the fitting. Longer and straighter than my old 2017 M2s. I was seeing about 5-7 yards difference. The feel was a bit more solid than the M2s, but that could just be down to age and lots of use. I definitely have a "fall in love" period ahead of me with the fairways. To me and many I know, fairways are like an old pair of shoes. Have to break them in and be comfortable with the feel. Once you do, all is great. Of course if you like it to begin with. Driver. Oh yes, the driver. During the fitting all was great. Well on the range I was seeing a totally different club. 15-20 yards short, did not feel great. I summed it up to hitting off the rubber tees that are a little shorter than what I am used to. So 8 full founds and one 9 hole round later how do I feel about the full bag now? Love the irons with zero doubt. If you have the chance to hit them, do it. Make a decision for yourself. From feel to distance and everything in between, I cannot say enough good things. Fairways are still growing on me, the feel is very solid and stiff but the numbers don't lie. They are working for and it is just a feel thing for me. Driver....well the driver has not gotten any better for me. I have went back to my old M3 for now. I am planning to reach out to the PXG rep. to verify all the settings are where they should be. Will update later about that interaction and if any change has happened. Wedges and putter are very nice and I give them a thumbs up for me. I believe these a very much feel clubs and should be tried before buying. I went from a 52, 56, and 60 setup to a 50, 54, and 58 setup. I do not feel comparing the two setups would be fair for distances. Spin and feel are great. I have picked up a lot of distance control and alignment from the putter. Again, I won't do much comparing here as my old putter was not fitted and bought off the rack. Just my two cents on PXG. Overall I am happy with the purchase and PXG. Hopefully we can get the driver figured out.
  11. Courses around me are all pretty good right now. Private and public seem to be doing well. Have played in several tournaments over the last few weeks, all courses have been in great shape.
  12. Thanks. I am enjoying it very much so far. I guess Harrisonburg would be middle ground for us. I hear good things about Heritage Oaks in Harrisonburg . I have not played it myself. I am pretty well committed until the end of August, but after that I would be open to a meetup. I am definitely going to try for a meetup around September for Royal New Kent in Providence Forge Va. Looks great and hear good things about newer management. Being in MGS's backyard, I wouldn't think it will hard to find three other guys to make a loop.
  13. If you play with a group, try match play. Any given shot will be as important as the next regardless of hole handicap if your opponent is still in the match. Think about keeping stats, I use Arccos and it gives you very detailed info on your round. There would be plenty of things to move your focus on throughout a round other than just score. Instead of worrying about that birdie on a easy hole, you can aim for fairway hit, GIR, sand saves, etc... the list of possibilities is large and can always be improved on. I feel your pain on the short putts. We all get used to those gimme putts and when it matters a two footer is easy to miss. Large percentage of us would be a couple points higher on the old handicap without those gimme putts if we are honest.
  14. How about a YouTube video of Tony, Chris, Harry, and Adam playing a round together. On course commentary provided by Miranda.
  15. I am just getting into walking. Bought a cheap push cart from Dick's and have a couple rounds under my belt. I have found that I enjoy the round more and seem to play better. If I continue to enjoy it, I can see a Moto Caddy in the future.
