  1. Pumped to have him back on the channel! I'm much more inclined to watch with him swinging the clubs
  2. The only one I listen to regularly is No Laying Up. I am subscribed to Rick Shiels, Shotgun Start, and Erik Anders Lang as well, but don't always get a chance to listen to them. I'll have to add a few of the others commented to my list
  3. I bench the driver a few times a year. I roll with my 3-wood off the tee. I did just pick up the new Taylormade Stealth 2 iron. Lose some distance, but much more accurate/consistent so I'll take it.
  4. The only tournaments I will make sure I watch are the 4 majors and The Players. The rest all depends on my schedule and who is contending.
  5. Mid-Season Update: 1. already played more rounds of 18 than all of last year thanks to joining a local cc 2. can count on one hand how many times I've hit the range. I've opted for playing anytime I have the free time 3. handicap is starting to trend in the right direction, took a while to get used to the tougher course 4. broke par for the first time on July 9th! 71 (-1) with a back 9 31 (-5) 5. been pretty close a couple times this year, but still aceless Goal I added since joining the CC - birdie or eagle every hole on the course. So far I have 11 holes checked off - 10 birdies, 1 eagle
  6. That's awesome - very impressive!
  7. I have a pair of the Adidas CODECHAOS sport spikeless and Callaway Coronado v2 spikeless. I'd recommend both
  8. For most rounds, I play the Vice Pro Plus. Not as durable, but at 1/2 the price, they get the job done. If you wait for the buy 5 dozen, get 1 free deal that they do a few times a year, it comes out to about $25-27/dozen after tax and shipping. For special rounds, I'll break out a sleeve of ProV1x. Typically get a dozen for my birthday and Christmas.
  9. Over the weekend, our trip to play 36 at The Links at Gettysburg was cancelled for the second time this summer. Instead, we drove over to Canton. Friday night, we went to the Pro Football Hall of Fame, which is always a nice time. On Saturday, we had a very, very early round at Tannenhauf GC. Shot a 77 (+5, 37/40) with no birdies. Solid muni course, but very tight. Everyone is on top of each other so you're playing dodgeball at times. Greens were rolling nicely. We then drove over to The Quarry to have lunch on their patio. In the afternoon, I finally got to play The Quarry. I have been wanting to play there for a few years now. It is a very nice course. The condition was a little rough in a few areas due to recent storms, but I will 100% play it again. After shooting a front 9 40 (+4), I shot a back 9 31 (-5) with 5 birdies. Easily my best 9 and it was my first time breaking par! Also dug a tick out of my leg with a tee. My buddy found a few ticks crawling on him throughout the round as well so be aware if you get the chance to golf there. To celebrate, we stayed and had dinner on the patio. As nice of a course it is, the food is even better! The driver was used 0 times all day.
  10. Really like this challenge! I started tracking this when I joined a local CC this year. It always gives you something to grind for even when you may not be playing well.
  11. Pushed my drive into the right rough. Not the best of lies so laid up short of the bunkers. Drained the approach for an eagle!
  12. About a year ago, I was paired with a guy who used an extremely short putter. It had to be under 2'. It made my back hurt just watching him putt.
  13. As long as it's consistent, it doesn't bother me and most should be able to block it out
  14. Driver - been slowly losing it over the last two weeks and fully lost it (hello two way miss) on Monday. I think I have officially hit the part of the season where I bench the driver and strictly go 3-wood off the tee.
  15. I have a few pairs of polarized sunglasses from Shady Rays - can't beat the price, especially if you are one who breaks/loses sunglasses. I don't wear them while swinging/putting, but have them on the rest of the time.
  16. I roll with 5 PW (45 - P790) AW (50 - P790) 52/56/60 (RTX4) When I got the P790s, the 4 iron overlapped my hybrid while creating a large gap between AW and 56 so it's a necessity. I've thought about getting a driving iron or seeing the distances on a new hybrid and going 52/58, but I will most likely stick with this for the summer.
  17. If I'm playing well: 0 If I'm not: 1-3 The course can dictate that number too
  18. During one of their sales around the holidays, I picked up a 3 wood headcover from Seamus. It looks great, seems to be high quality, and not bulky at all. Highly recommend!
  19. I didn't have any goals going into 2021, but I dropped my handicap from 6.4 to 5.0, made a lot of upgrades to my bag, and was much more consistent scoring wise. My 2022 goals: 1. play more 2. practice more/better 3. lower my handicap into the 3's 4. break par on a round of 18 (broken par on 9, but +1 is my best for 18) 5. hole in one
  20. I have been using a TaylorMade Spider for the last few years, but have been wanting to go back to a blade. When I originally switched to the Spider, it really helped my putting. I think it was partially because I was starting to learn more about technique and get better at the game and partially because of the weight. My putter before that was a Taylormade Rossa blade, which was pretty light. Without being 100% sure if I'd prefer the blade, I didn't want to spend $300 on a new putter. Right before Christmas, I got lucky on eBay and purchased my new putter- Mizuno M Craft I in blue. Brand new and came with the weight set. I was going back and forth between getting it in black or blue. I couldn't find one locally to try out/see in person so I took a chance on getting it in blue and I am glad I did! I love the look of it! After hitting a few putts in my hallway, I love the way it feels! I could definitely feel the difference even before I went back and forth between the two putters hitting putts. I think I'm going with the middle weight set (8's). The light weight set (3's) was decent, but I like the additional weight that the 8's provided. The heavy weight set (13's) made putts feel more like a thud that I didn't like. I'll have to get it on the course to see distance control with the different weight sets though. The one thing I might change is the grip. It came with a smaller, hard Mizuno black grip. I liked the thicker, softer SuperStroke on my Spider, but I will try it out for a little before changing grips. I paid $155 + $15 shipping so even if I end up preferring the mallet, I can resell this and not take much of a hit, if at all.
  21. I'm hoping they will do another run of them because I'd love to pick one up!
  22. My wife got me a Top Golf gift card, UA polo and 1/4 zip. My parents gave me a TXG towel, a No Laying Up polo, and a US Amateur polo (grew up and live about 10 minutes from Oakmont CC) - I may have helped with selecting these items haha With some luck on eBay, I gave myself a new putter for $155 + $15 for shipping
  23. I recently picked up a TXG ball marker during their black Friday sale so I'll be putting that into the rotation next year
  24. For $2000, I'd plan a golf trip in Florida during MLB spring training
  25. I am going to give 5 wedges a try for the beginning of next season. PW - 45* P790, 130-145 yards AW - 50* P790, 115-130 yards 52 - Cleveland RTX4, 95-110 yards 56 - Cleveland RTX4, 0-95 yards I'm adding a 60 degree as a final club in my bag. I had an older hybrid, but it was being overlapped on distance by my new 4 and 5 irons. Although I have a gap between 4 iron and 3 wood, I rarely find myself in that range. I'm sure a new hybrid or driving iron would take care of that gap, but I think I'd get more use out of a 60 degree wedge around the green. That TXG video came out at the perfect time because I was just discussing wanting to dial in partial wedge distances for next season. The matrix is a great and simple way to accomplish it.
