  1. Saturday Club Championship Hole number 14 452 yard par 4. This is normally a bogey or worse. One of the tougher par 4's. Drive is up hill and if you are in the fairway most likely have a side hill lie. Approach shot is typically long and downhill to a pretty small green. Pin was tucked back left on Saturday. Short in the bunker long bounces into the hazard. Hit a really good drive for me on this hole, for some reason on of the holes I usually don't drive well. Approach was 175 downhill into the wind. Decide to go for the pin, hitting a draw off the side hill lie. Hit the exact shot I saw in my head, slight draw right at the pin. Ball end up checking up and spinning back leaving me 37' for birdie. Missed the put about an inch to the right. I will take par on this hole all day.
  2. I purchased the Mizuno px 921 hot metal pros last year after getting fitted. Received them in October near the end of the season. It took me I would say about 5 rounds(plus range time) to get comfortable.
  3. My Home course is Hobbits Glen Golf Club in Columbia, MD. I grew up playing this course in the 80' and early 90's. 25 years later I joined back last October. Personally my favorite course in the area. Various team options. State Farm Senior open was played here back in the 90's. I never get bored playing as some of the other courses in the area I considered joining. If you are ever in the area let me know always happy to have guests play the course. Black 7013/Blue 6596/Hybrid 6400/White 6008/Gold 5431/Green 5020 90% of the time I play the Blue tees
  4. 1st hole #2 Hobbits Glen Par 5- Normally when I hit a good fade over the trees on the right, I end up going for it and usually end up with a bad result(water, push right into the trees etc) maybe 1 our of 5 ends up on or just short.. Today decided was going to play it smart. Payed off and sunk a 26' foot putt for the birdie. Probably haven't learned my lesson and will go for it next time again 2nd 16h hole Hobbits Glen Par 3. - This was one of the shots where I did exactly wanted I wanted and had the distance perfect. Set up or hit a slight fade choose a 7 since pin was back and I knew if I hit it well I could get it back there, but little risk of going over the green. 13' putt for birdie
  5. Just saw this!! I am in only an hour drive so will be golf only, both days.
  6. I prefer to walk and walk majority off rounds. If I am playing with group where everyone is riding then I will Ride. Usually playing with co-workers or rounds with occasional friend where it is more social I will ride. Most rounds i play as a single and join a group, I almost always walk in this case.
  7. Played my 1st 2 rounds with my arcoss link and sensors. Overall I am happy with how the performed. 2 issues I had are 1) not detecting driver, missed about 80% of my drives. 2) extra puts, but those seem easy enough to fix. I kept forgetting to mark the flag on a bunch of holes yesterday.
  8. Manage to play 12 holes on Friday and 18 Sunday. Extremely happy and excited to play a few more rounds and figure out the yardage. Was long on a bunch of holes just because not use to the distances. Sunday was windy 10-15 knots with gust to 20 so made it tougher. Somewhere between 20-30 yards longer per club. So much better hitting 7,9,W irons into par 3's v's 4 and 6 irons. The feeling/Sound at impact is drastically different then my Ping Eye 2 Copper beryllium so that will take some getting used to, bunch of shots felt like mishits but were perfect. Still need the additional wedges to come in and likely will get a hybrid/wood fitting. My 5 wood is about 40 years old and my 3 wood I just can't hit at all. So need to fill the void at distances longer then my 5 iron.
  9. Ordered clubs on August 3rd after my 2nd fitting finally received the call today that the irons arrived and can pick up tonight. Still waiting for the wedges, but excited to get them and try them out tomorrow. First new set of clubs irons in 30 years!!!!! Mijunzo JPX 921 Hot metal pro 5-GW Nippon Modus 105 stiff shafts.
  10. Thanks great advice and correct replacing my irons and wedges. but not woods and putter.
  11. My Arccos sensor and Caddy link arrived last week. I have new clubs on order, who knows when they will arrive, likely sitting on a container ship off the coast :). So trying to decide if it is worth it to start with Arccos on my current set or just hold off till the new clubs get here? Any thoughts?
  12. I am trying to figure out a club or 2 to drop to lighten the load a little when walking :).
  13. Agree with you guys. Cheaters are always going to find away to cheat. Most groups I play with don't pay that much attention to validate or in validate a score. I am probably harder on myself then most people I get put with when playing.
  14. Been playing Prov1's for years but ordered a dozen Vice Pro's and was really happy with them yesterday. Will probably alternate the vice pro and prov1's for a few rounds and decide which to stick with.
  15. My experience with Club Champion continues to get worse. Daily calls and email telling me how bad of a decision I am making not to go with them and their 43% price over direct. In addition telling me how going to another fitter was a mistake and the clubs will 1000% not perform as well CCs build. It is one thing to stand behind your product another to tell the customer they are completely wrong and are wasting money. The other club fitting was by a local who has been doing it 40 years and only does club fittings. His tips on my swing and stance alone of improved my iron play greatly with my old clubs.
  16. They only provide me 2 options 1. With pure, 2. without pure. I repeatedly explained that I didn't understand the pricing compared to ordering direct. The Salesperson "fitter" has just kept pushing that this is the best price, and the clubs will be exact and he guarantees results. I have decide to order Mizunos through the local fitter, just the swing adjustment he provide me have improved my game. Looking forward to getting the clubs in 8-10 weeks.
  17. Understand. I found a local top 100 fitter and builder who was able to provide clubs at approx $300 over the cost direct from the manufacturer. Much more reasonable. The issue with Club Champion is they said they don't buy the shafts from Titleist and order them separate. If that is the case no way are they paying the full price for the shaft+ heads. In addition all of their marketing says they charge the same price as you could buy elsewhere. The mistake my fitter made was not checking that this was a stock shaft. My understanding is they try to avoid providing you a set up you can price shop.
  18. This was before the "puring Fee" Regardless it is a stock club from Titleist charging a build fee of $90 per club seems excessive.
  19. How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score? I have been playing golf for 39 years on and off. Currently a 16 handicap but have been as low as an 8. Now that the kids are grown looking to get that back down closer to 10. What do you love about golf? Love that it is you against the course. That no matter how bad you play there is always that one shot or putt that keeps you coming back. What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies? Just found it doing a search about club fitting. Where are you from? What is your home course? Live in Elkridge, Md in Howard county. Planning on joining Hobbits Glen this week so that will be my home course. This summer have been playing various courses (Timbers, Rolling Road, Eisenhower, Caves Valley, Balley Hack and a few others) What are the best and worst things about golf in your region? To cold in the winter!!! What do you do for a living? Finance Executive for a public company in the DC area. How’d you pick your user name? Name I use on most sites.
  20. Recently had a fitting with Club champion and while the fitting was a good experience the pricing wasn't. They fitted my in to the new Titleist t-200 being released at the end of the month with Project X shafts. What the fitter didn't' realize is these shafts are available as stock from Titleist. They quoted be $2,500 in total and I can get the same exact clubs for $1,600 ordering direct. I don't buy a $900 markup because they are going to build the clubs. I found another local fitter that was actually a better experience and while didn't end up with the t-200s. His pricing was only $250 more then the manufacture which I found reasonable.
