    GM Y'all !!!!!!! Happy 🐪DAY!!!!!! Ya know- I'm REALLY glad that there's all you EARLY risers out there. Cuz some of y'all are waking up when I go to sleep(I usually go to bed around 12:30-1:00 and wake up about 5:45-6:00- old habits die hard) I know I can rest peacefully knowing that y'all have it under control😉. My old 54*/58* wedges are going to their new home today🥴(it's a good home though-), hopefully the new ones will arrive soon. If not, just have to make some adjustments on the course til they do. I'm gonna miss them- we did a LOT of really cool shots together. I'm sure the new ones will do the same, given the opportunity(I'm sure there'll be MANY of those opportunities). Hope y'all have an awesome day and get new best scores and no bogies(or worse).

    OK friends, I am jumping back into this experiment.  I just ordered the GWX A flex to try with a Mavrik Sub Zero 9* and Rogue ST Max LS 9*, along with a left-handed adapter so I can go down 2* in loft if needed.  (That experiment absolutely worked with a Paradym X hybrid.)  I have the PLB L flex and will try that too, but it tended to be a little uncontrollable so I think the extra weight and a touch more stiffness in the GWX will be to my advantage.
    I've been hitting my regular Rogue driver very well lately (for me), and I am excited to see if I can maintain the accuracy and squeeze some extra distance out of it too.
    This is the thread that brought me to MGS initially.   Thanks again for that!
    Nerding out on this stuff is so fun.  You are the only one (well, ones) who understand me . . .

    Competition season has now started here. My driving has gone a bit off, but I have started to recover it. But to be fair, despite not hitting the distances previously seen, it was still good enough to break 80, and take the win. 
    When you break it all down the weaknesses was not the driving, but in the short game. Our greens are dreadful currently due to the weather and possibly some mismanagement… and stats suggest I coped with them better than most, so my putter is fine.
    I dropped shots on some short par 3s due to distance management… wrong club 🙄 ..
    I am happy with the set up, and I think mediocrity is still good enough to score well .. this set up is giving me that leeway. I did wonder about going up from 8 degrees to 9 on loft which would close the head down .. but my issues aren’t really related to that so I will just keep working on the technique and tempo.
    I have also picked up a regular flex Ping crossover g425 4 iron , which is becoming one of my favourites.. I may look to experiment with a 2 iron with a light shaft in, that could be quite an interesting experiment!

    Got out tonight. Thought I would wonder around 9 holes and have a little practice, but ended up playing a pairs bounce match which was rather competitive. 
    Driving is improving, although my 250-260 yards were looking a bit short compared to the 320 yard monsters one of the guys was hitting… thought I had a bit of a fight on .. but I ground them all down with boring, fairways in regulation or greens in regulation and we won 3 and 2 but I finished my 9 at -1. 
    So Otto Phlex is still working and has the most consistency. 
    I also was carrying a very reduced bag of Driver, 4 iron 7 to wedge, 50 and 60 degrees plus putter … no fairway woods or driving iron ( shows too many clubs are in the bag)

    Taking a sick day to get a much needed appointment taken care of and making the most of it by watching my son play in a golf tournament this morning and then getting in some range time later this afternoon before our first league night tee time at 5:30. Gonna be a great day!

    Morning spies. I’m swinging back by the house on my way to work to grab the sticks and head to the range near work. Dentist appointment and a half numb face made my decision for me. Good luck to those playing today. 2 more days this week. With Friday off sunshine and decent weather forecasted gonna get my butt out there!

    In 2018, I went on a fly fishing trip to the Kootenai River in NW Montana.  It was an absolutely awesome 5 days of fly fishing.
