    How many burrowing animal holes have you been in?   How many dangerous animals have you been near?    There are rules to account for those and I bet you have been in more divots than those situations. 

    I've actually been near more dangerous things such as a copperhead snake or on fire ant hills that I've been in divots...matter of fact, I can't even remember the last time I've hit in a divot or if I have

  2. I’m not attached to any club so much that I’d buy a backup. If I played competitively for a living I would. I swapped out my whole bag this year and I don’t really see a difference except the putter but that’s just because of how I can align it compared to my old one. if something happened to any club replacing it wouldn’t be a big deal. 

    I’m pretty much the same as Bostonsal.  I’ve played with all kinds of shafts and don’t see a huge difference between them all. I’ve never been fitted though so maybe there’s a big difference I’m missing. I just usually go with a mid flight shaft and call it good. I did get a sim ti 3 wood with a 2nd gen Rogue silver stiff shaft. It was much more stiff than I was used to but dang I hit that thing well. 

  3. I recently swapped out my entire bag lol. Replaced some old wedges and got a 50 and 54 Sm8 to go with my 58 Sm8.  Swapped out my old TM R9 TP 3w to a TM Sim Ti 3w.  Had some Apex Pro 2019 irons I bought end of last year that I finally started playing. Thought I needed them bent but didn’t. They’re replacing my 2007 X-forged irons. Replaced a TM 3 hybrid with a Titleist Tsi2 18* hybrid. Replaced an old Scotty Studio 3.5 putter with an Odyssey Ten S.  Then said what the heck and bought a Cobra Radspeed to replace a Callaway Rogue Subzero. 

    The two best swaps were the putter and 3w.  I couldn’t line up my Scotty to save my life. The 3w is a little longer but also has a stiffer shaft and I no longer hit pulls like I used to. The driver was the worst decision lol. I might sell it

  4. So I got this idea the other day and decided to try it.  If you have an iPhone and another Apple device, you can Facetime yourself.  Set the phone either down the line or head on, then set the other apple device on the ground in front.  You can then see positions in your swing as you would if using a LiveviewPro.  I'm sure there's probably some differences but it works quite well for checking positions.  Sometimes it can get choppy but works great and cost me nothing.

  5. I just went through this. I need to post some pics of my bag.  I had some old Callaway X-forged irons (2007) that I changed out to some 2017 Apex Pros, swapped an old Taylor Made r7 TP 3w to a Sim Ti, swapped an old TM tp 3 hybrid to a Titleist TiS2 18* hybrid, swapped an old Scotty Studio Design 3.5 to a 2021 Odyssey Ten S, and lastly changed some older edges to Vokey SM 8 wedges.  The wedges I went 50* F grind 8* bounce, 54* S grind 10* bounce, and 58* M grind 8* bounce.  I haven’t swapped my driver yet but going to test a Radspeed. I think the other changes I made were good because the older clubs weren’t as forgiving but I don’t think the driver will do much for me. I’m hoping it will be more forgiving but I’ll find out soon enough.  The biggest change is my 3w and putter.  The new 3w is longer and straighter and the putter is so much more forgiving on mishits and sooooo much easier to line up. I feel so much more confident in my putting.

    Aligns with what the MGS staff found and why they recommend not getting the refurbished and refinished balls.  No choice/knowledge on year of the ball and as you also found may not actually be the ball it is supposed to be. 

    Are all Prov1s 4 layers? Or did that make a 3 layer Prov?  I’ve always stayed away from those for exactly what you said.  Plus I can walk in the woods for an hour or so and find more than enough premium balls haha 

  7. Can anyone tell me the differences between these two besides cosmetics?  The 2021 version they’ve filled in the holes of the head but is there any other differences like forgiveness?  I can’t seem to find much info between these two and the Pga Superstore is selling them both at the same price. 

  8. I currently play a Rogue Subzero 9* with Project X Hzrdus Yellow 75 Stiff shaft.  I've never been fitted but landed on this one and hit it pretty well.  Would a more current driver offer anything more than the Subzero?  I'm not talking about distance really because I'm sure most heads are similar.  I'm talking more about things like forgiveness and stability.

  9. I’m currently playing a Rogue Subzero 9* with a Project X Hazardous Yellow Stiff shaft.   I had thought about going to a Mavrik standard.  Any input on whether there would be any significant gain either in distance or performance?  I can trade and only be out about $50

    I typically don’t venture too far off of the center of the club and have about a 265-270 yard carry.

    I think it’s at the 30 day mark you can post still photos of your swing then at the 45 day mark you can post 2 videos per week

    I just received an email after I posted that lol.  Odd timing. They said it does include analysis but didn’t say when. I had read somewhere else the same thing you posted. I’ll have to consider that now too

    It’s no different than choosing an in person one. Check reviews, check their social media to get an understanding of them and their teaching philosophies and methods. Shoot them a message with questions. Based on what you know pick one that you think matches best with your thoughts. Just like with an in person instructor if it’s not working out then move on.

    You have a pretty good list there if some highly recommended instructors. I would add TJ Yeaton to the list and don’t sleep on George Gankas course. He’s adding some more stuff to it soon.

    Thanks for the reply! I considered Gankas but his program didn’t make mention of swing analysis. It seemed like it was just a program you work through on your own and it requires a year long commitment even if paying monthly.  I emailed asking if it included analysis because some people said it used to, but never heard back.  I’ll check out TJ.

    I have had lessons from four of the instructors in your list above. First off, if budget is a concern, that should be one of the first criteria. Second, all the instructors I have worked with online: Monte, Jonathan Chown, Alex Moore, and Dan Carraher, have different communication styles, and how they communicate what you should focus on. For example, Monte identify and tell you two to three things to work on that are the highest priority issues and won't really talk about other issues you may have. Others, such as Jonathan, also will help to identify what the most pressing issues are, but is open to more back and forth on discussing other items you may want to bring up as well. 

    How did they all compare with each other as far as follow up communication while you were making changes?  

  13. Hey y’all!  Just joined not long ago.  I recently went through surgery for colon cancer and now I want to start back playing and practicing more.  

    How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score?  

    • 20ish years.  Typically low to mid 80’s

    What do you love about golf?

    • That it gives me something to do outside of deer hunting season lol.  It’s challenging and I like practicing to try and get better

    What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies?

    • Found it on google looking for reviews.  Maybe hope to meet other fellow golfers from my region to possibly play with 

    Where are you from? What is your home course?

    • North central AL

    What are the best and worst things about golf in your region?

    • Not really sure about the best things.  I guess cost of living. Worst is that courses are spread out.  I live about 30-45 min minimum from the nicer courses. 

    What do you do for a living?

    • Portrait Photographer, have my own business specializing in mostly high school seniors 

    How’d you pick your user name?

    •  It came from a movie.  Can’t even remember which now

  14. Hey y’all!  This is my first post here. I recently went through surgery for colon cancer and I want to start back playing and practicing.  I want to try some online lessons but how do you choose?  There’s so many instructors that look good.   If you have used any of these below, or have any tips for picking someone, please comment.  

    I’ve looked at quite a few from Skillest.  Dan Carraher, Monte Scheinblum, Jonathan Chown, Dominic Azzopardi, Bill Schmedes, Toby McGeachie, Travis Harrison, Jordan Bazzone, Alex Moore, Nathan Leonhardt, and Jonathan Porter.

    I’ve also looked at some programs that include swing analysis from Dan Whittaker, Shawn Clements, Eric Cogorno, Jonathon Yarwood, and Athletic Motion Golf.
