  1. One test I would like to see with this golf ball test is the water test when hitting wedge shots. I know they do this test with wedge testing but not ball testing if my memory is correct. Most interested in Maxfli and Titleist new ball testing so we can compare them to each other.
  2. Here are my goals: Golf Goals 2023 1. Improve handicap from 7 to 2 (5 shot improvement) by year end 2023 2. Qualify for CDGA Senior Amateur & Illinois State Senior Amateur Tournaments 3. Gain 5 MPH ball speed on driver from a baseline of 150mph to 155mph 4. Total Strokes Gained for the year vs. a 2 Handicap, +5 strokes 6. 55%+ Fairways hit with driver (currently 43%) 7. 60%+ GIR (currently 55%) 8. Chipping from 0 to 25 yards, improve up & Down percentage to +50% 9. Average 30 or less putts per round 10. Accomplish 1st hole-in-one during the 2023 season 11. Mega Bonus Goal: Shoot under par for the 1st time during an 18 hole round 12. Walk at least 50% of my rounds during 2023 13. Play 45 plus rounds in 2023 14. Make 90 birdies or more in 2023 15. Play 15 plus rounds without a double bogey or worse in 2023 Summary · Keep Grinding
  3. Just two, Titliest and Mizuno. I have tried to expand but when I test Titliest vs other brands they have never beaten except for when I tested TSI 2 Driver vs. the Mizuno STG 220. I was getting more distance with less spin. I also do play the Maxfli Tour CG in regular play to save money vs. Pro V1. I see very little difference in performance.
  4. I received Red Rooster rain gloves for Christmas. Been researching the gloves and noticed they have subscription service. Wondering if anyone else has had experience with Red Rooster. I use Titleist Perma Soft gloves which I really like but if I can save a few bucks and not have much a performance difference I would make the change. Btw, I am looking at the Red Rooster Silkie which looks like very similar to the Titleist Perma Soft.
  5. Not sure anyone mention this yet but new the Maxfli Tour balls are out on the Golf Galaxy’s website. They are highlighting the Tetrahedron design (not sure if that is new) and it looks like they removed the ball alignment which is confusing. They also have the new Tour S model available, I would assume it’s a low compression soft ball to compete with the Callaway Chrome Soft. I will for sure try it but will miss the alignment aid.
  6. Has anyone used the SuperSpeed Golf training system? Just made the purchase with the Blast Speed Pack. Trying to get from 153-155 drive ball speed to 160 in 2023. Am I being too optimistic? Thanks for any feedback.
  7. The versions that were discounted were from January 2022, maybe sales are slower than they expected and have to clear inventory as you mentioned.
  8. I was surprised to see the new Mizuno STX & STZ drivers discounted down by $150 just a few months after their release. I have the STG 220 and it’s a great driver. I have heard nothing but good things about their drivers so I’m surprised. Any chance they are already updating these versions?
  9. I just purchased the Titleist Players 4 Plus bag. I did look at the Hybrid 14 bag but felt like it was too big for my push cart, the Omada Trilite. The good thing about the plus bag is you get more room at the bottom so your 14 clubs fit nicely (I have Arccos sensors) and has expandable apparel pocket. Not sure which push cart would be a better fit for your hybrid bag.
  10. Hey everyone, not sure if you are using the P3 Putter sensor yet but I have lost 2 over the last two months. I use the Scotty Pistolini Plus grip and it feels snug in there but for some reason they have come loose. I don’t throw my clubs and I have checked the bottom of my bag without success. I have ordered one more and I am going to tape the sensor on to my grip. I have been using the standard Arccos sensors in the rest of my clubs and have not lost a single one. Just frustrating.
  11. Is there a good comparison you would recommend to compare Arccos vs. Shot Scope side by side? My free membership for Arccos stops in January and I have a decision to make. I was fine with $100 per year but $155 just seems too much. My experience has been great with Arccos and I would recommend using the link. Very rarely does the link miss a shot. That being said I would like to avoid a large membership fee that will probably continue to go up over the years.
  12. Just an FYI, I had added the P3 putter sensor to my putter a few weeks back and lost it this past weekend. Not sure if there is an issue with using it in the Pistolini Grip but will be extra careful going forward. I have to retighten the other sensors every so often, I thought I had with the putter also but it got loose somehow.
  13. Always great to see Wilson do well. I have had two previous versions of the AP2’s and just switched to Titleist T100s last year and have been really happy. Took some time to adjust to the increase in distance but the forgiveness and accuracy that I have experienced with T100s irons have been a noticeable improvement over my last AP2’s. Surprised the T100S irons didn’t finish higher is accuracy but every swing is different so these tests are not perfect. I am also surprised about Srixon and Sub70, not sure why they didn’t participate. Never surprised about Mizuno irons finishing at the top.
  14. Quick question everyone, I have the older Arccos link and sometimes it doesn’t capture a shot and I’m wondering if I need to have my phone closer by (I keep my phone in my bag on the cart) or is it a link issue. I always have link on my left side and the mic isn’t covered up. It doesn’t happen all the time but a few times a round so I have a few edits to make after the round. Thanks,
  15. Goals for the year: 1-Reduce handicap from an 8 to a 5 (trusting Arccos to help make it happen) 2-Practice more and have more fun w/ practice time. I don’t want golf work to be a chore 3-Ball speed on my driver from 155 to 160 by year end 4-Enjoy every round, good or bad Also, I live in Chicago and have never been out to the John Deere Classic in the Quad Cities. I plan on seeing the tournament in July and going back later this year to play TPC at Deere Run. It’s going to be a great golf season!
