  1. I'm looking for how the standings are calculated, - it looks like $ Won is how the positions are set - how does score to PAR fit in?
  2. Count me in - I was in the fantasy league last year and had fun.
  3. I'm playing the Sub70 TAIII forged raw irons. The reason is for the consistent distance even with when I mishit the ball. I know my distances and they inspire confidence at address. An added plus with the raw finish is that my set is unique with its finish. If you shank a ball it doesn't matter what type of club you are playing.
  4. I was hoping to give a weekly update with score cards and highlights of each round. Unfortunately life took over and I find myself only able to post this summary of the 2022 season. So here is the quick list of events that I played in along with my results. 4th event held at Ravisloe CC on 6/18/2022 D flight - overall finished in 7th place out of 11 with a score of 99, 10 shots off the lead. Highlight is I birdied a hole for a skin. 5th event at Big Run GC on 7/2/2022 D flight - overall finished in 6th place out of 13 with a score of 96, 9 shots off the lead. I won 1 skin in this round. The 6th and 7th events were the mid-season Major held on 7/16 and 7/17 2022. 6th event at Sheperd's Crook on 7/16/2022 D flight - I completed the first day in 6 place out of 9 with a score of 100, 14 strokes off the lead. 7th event at Thunderhawk Golf Club D flight - second day I tied for low round of the day with a 96, but finished in 6th place out of 9, 13 strokes off the lead with a 2 day total of 196. 8th event at Prairie Landing on 7/30/2022 D flight - I shot a 97 which was 6 shots off the lead. I finished in 5th place out of 8. 9th event held at White Deer Run Golf Club on 8/13/2022 D flight - I finished in 7th place out of 9 with a score of 104, I did birdie one hole for a skin. 10th event held at Ruffled Feathers Golf Club on 8/27/2022 D flight I finished in 6th place out of 11 with a score of 96, 9 strokes off the lead, I birdied 1 hole and won a total of 3 skins. After the front nine I was only 2 strokes off the lead with a 46, but I could not keep the momentum for the full round. 11th event held at Bowes Creek Country Club on 9/10/2022 D flight - I finished in 5th place out of 8 with a score of 102 which was 11 strokes off the lead. 12th event held at Village Links of Glen Ellyn - Final event of the regular season. D flight - I finished in 2nd place out of 7 with a total of 96 which was 6 shots off the lead. I won 1 skin and took home the second place prize money of $100.00 Overall I finished the season in 5th place overall in points out of 17 total players in D flight. With that finish I was invited to play in the Chicago Senior Amateur Tour Match Play event held at Harborside. I was seeded in 4th with a total of 8 players. The format was 3 nine hole matches. In the first match I was paired against the 5th seed, I stated strong and after 4 holes I was 4-up. Only needing to win one more hole I ended up losing 3 holes in a row starting the 8th hole I was 1-up. I finally broke the losing streak and won the 8th hole to finish 2 and 1. In the second match I was paired against the number 1 seed. I held close through 4 holes I was only 1-down, then I started my slide and by the 6th hole the match was "Dormie" and with the tie-breaker going to the highest seed, I conceded the match. The last match for me was in the consolation bracket where I won 3 and 2. My overall 5th place finish in the Chicago tour ended up qualifying me for the 2022 Senior National Championship held down at Hilton Head on October 19-20 in D flight there was a total of 81 total players. I played 2 courses Arthur Hills at Palmetto Dunes and Oyster Reef Golf Club On the first day I shot a 104 which put me in a tie for 23rd place, I felt confident going into the second round as I had shot a 96 in a practice round on the Oyster Reef course where I hit 10/14 fairways . Unfortunately my driving in the second round left me with some challenging 2nd shots and I only hit 6 out of 14 fairways and I finished with a 106 for a 2 day total of 210 which I was tied for 57th place. In my first year playing organized tournament golf I had a blast. I exceeded my expectations and showed improvement in my scoring relative to my tour. I ended up winning a good number of skins and placed in the money in 1 tournament and qualified for the season end match play and the Nationals. I met new friends and will be playing again in 2023. For anyone who thinks their game is not good enough and needs to practice more before joining a local tour, just get out there and start competing it is the only way to see how you hold up under pressure.
  5. I switched to the MAX 15" as I was tending to grip low on the 34" putter with my right index finger on the shaft. With the longer grip my fingers are now completely on the grip and I feel like my touch has improved. Over my last 5 rounds my Arccos app indicates that my putting has improved 4.6 in strokes gained.
  6. Excited to be posting on page 666. Just bought a Garsen Golf MAX 15" grip 'Garsen Golf Max 15 in   Red-Black'
  7. While running the conversions on the carry distance - noticed that for estimation, the overall distance is close to the yards of carry. 5 iron average carry = 172m = 188.1 yds ; total distance of 186m 6 iron average carry 156m = 170 yds; total distance = 167m
  8. Jamie - Congrats on finally getting the delivery. These clubs are great. I saw them at the Sub70 golf outing a couple of weeks back at and spoke with Jay @GolfSub70 as they were still waiting for the Black finish to be in stock in the U.S.A. I love the black shafts and I think you will like the raw finish as they will make your set unique. However with the laser etching of each club name, you already have the uniqueness covered. I love my TAIIIs that I picked up last year in raw, I'm letting them rust naturally rather than forcing them quickly. If I had to purchase this year I would have gone with a combo set CB/TC Here is my set in my bag:
  9. I picked Sub70 as well but I don't think they offer a laser etching so now I guess my 2nd choice was PXG
  10. I'm pulling for Cam Young - he was on my fantasy team all year. If he can't do it I'm backing Scottie Scheffler
  11. I have a shafts that were pulled from Ben Hogan Icons KBS Tour V 110 S with midsize Lamkin grips.
  12. Did a quick calculation based on 1 week left before playoffs green should be clinched playoffs based on division records, yellow is on bubble for top 15, orange need help to get into the top 15.

  13. @MyWifesSwingCoachI was planning on doing a how did I get here thread as both Ben Hogan and Sub 70 are part of the story as I used their demo clubs to select my final sets. I have a thread over in the Tour Talk - Golf Spies in Competition My senior amateur tour journey I'll see if I can find time to write up my club selection journey
  14. Going with the Sub70 TCs - checked website blacks are out of stock - I say going with RAW
  15. Sorry to hear this news, but golf is a cut throat business / game. I would definitely pick up additional clubs if they have inventory, I would love to pick up a couple of more sets of wedges and irons even if they are just the heads. I've been playing my Hogan Equalizer II wedges and 4 wood along with my Sub70 TAIIIs in my bag for the senioramateurgolftour.net events. Last month I sent in my GS53 driver for a warranty repair and got it back within 2 weeks. They had great customer service. I have my ICONs in my Hogan Bag that is used for fun rounds
