  1. Hey all happy Sunday. I am so excited for my first 9 holes of the year tomorrow. I can’t believe it’s in February too in MN. Going to be a high of 60F and sunny. Just a few courses open here locally and this one filled up for tomorrow in like 30 min!!! Glad I got a spot and can’t wait to get out!! I’ll post a recap afterwards!!
  2. Happy Friday Spies and Good morning! I have to say my level of joy is high today despite the 6 inches of snow we got on Wednesday! I am looking forward to simulator time next Friday (first time swinging since October) and I got a new Callaway Paradym 4-Hybrid that needs to be unwrapped and taken for a spin! Starting to get the spring itch again to get back out on the course so hope the snow will melt next week and it will come soon. Heading to Orlando in March so I am going to try to get away for a morning to play! We will see! Cheers!
  3. Looks awesome! My workout will come later this morning. Then taxes appt with accountant this aftersoon! I might be playing more golf or I might not, we will see!
  4. This is great. Thank you for the guide!!
  5. Hey just thinking about this but is there a place on the forum for course reviews? There are so many spies in different locations and lots of us travel and play, if there was a list or reviews by spies when people are traveling that would be great. If it’s already a thread, my apologies for not searching hard enough (I did try, I promise)!!
  6. Good morning all. Hope you have a wonderful Sunday. Some local courses here in MN are open with this crazy warm winter and no snow. I’m gonna try to get out this week but work is gettingu in the way. We will see how it goes.
  7. Love this thread. I had the opportunity to be a tester for the first time last year. I was new to the forum so it was super exciting for me. Thanks so much for the opportunity!! I tested the ONCORE ELIXR golf balls. What I really liked about it was it made me think more critically about how my equipment impacts my game. For the ball test for instance I was really focused two areas. 1) how it impacted my short game around the green. And 2) did it help provide better control off the tee. It was really eye opening to me the difference. I think the way the reviews take lots of different perspectives is key to give data to players to help make decisions. If I am being honest my first review wasn’t a great one. But if I hadn’t been given the chance to do one I would never know. My next one will be much better and after getting more into other product reviews and seeing what can be done to give a really excellent review. I hope I get the opportunity to do it again in the future and I would be much more selective in which ones to sign up for that fit my schedule. My life is really complex and getting the time to do some of the more lengthy or involved reviews is just not possible. This forum is one of my favorite places to go to just see how much fun people are having playing golf and to learn about products!!
  8. Yeah I have been struggling with my fairway woods for a long time and rarely hit them. I played with some rental clubs this fall and the bag had 2 hybrids and I found myself hitting the hybrid all the time. So I am looking to get one for this coming season. Probably going with Callaway Paradym 3H. I am going to spend some time with my 7 and 9w to see if I can get the feel back but then might consider another hybrid if that doesn't work out.
  9. Date 09/09/2023 Course Name Rhodes Ranch GC Gross Score 105 Course Handicap 25 Gross Strokes over/under par 34 Net Score to Par 9 Net Score 80 Net Birdies or better 3 Longest Drive 260 VCT Match Play Score This was so much fun. Highly recommend this course if you are in Las Vegas. Great service and beautiful course. I'll post some pics once I download them. Shot my best round of the year with rental clubs. Makes me wonder how much my older clubs are hampering improvements. Had 3 pars in this round and I found that I really like hybrids so I may be looking at those to add to my bag.
  10. Date 09/02/2023 Course Name Eagle Valley GC Gross Score 109 Course Handicap 25 Gross Strokes over/under par 37 Net Score to Par 12 Net Score 84 Net Birdies or better 11 Longest Drive 280 VCT Match Play Score Man what a crazy round. I couldn't hit my driver at all. Started playing iron off the tee. Only hit 3 fairways but managed to have 4 gross pars in the round. Had a 30 ft birdie put on 18 (after my one good driver) that did a 360 on the lip of the cup and came out. Lost the feel on my wedge for 2 holes then it came back. Take away the two 9's and 3 8's and I played pretty good. Regardless I was playing with 3 really great friends and that made it so much more fun! On to next week for a round in Las Vegas! Wish me luck!
  11. Date 08/27/2023 Course Name River Oaks GC Gross Score 108 Course Handicap 27 Gross Strokes over/under par 37 Net Score to Par 10 Net Score 81 Net Birdies or better 5 Longest Drive 270 First Round in about 7 weeks and I felt rusty. Front 9 was much better, I think I was getting tired on the back. Could not hit a drive straight for much of the round so a lot of scrambling. Continuing to work, let's see how next week goes.
  12. Hey Spies. Happy Saturday. Haven’t played in about 6 weeks and I am going early tomorrow morning for 18 with my son and his friend and his friends dad. Can’t wait!!. It’s been 100F here all week and our AC went out (got fixed yesterday) but it’s supposed to be sunny and upper 50’s tomorrow morning. Pretty much perfect!! Then I am playing each of the next 3 weekends so that is gonna be great. I do t get out as much as I would like so I cherish the times I do. I hope you all have a great weekend. I’ll share my scores after the round!!
  13. Hey spies. Heading to Las Vegas in a couple of weeks and would like to mark Nevada off my states played list!! Any course recommendations that won’t break the bank?
