    I will check the swingweight to see if the paint added any weight to the shaft.  After installing a +1/16 grip, I had to add some lead tape to the head to bring the swing weight up to D1.

    Yesterday was a full round of playing the ProLaunch 45 senior flex shaft with my new setup.  I have to say that driving the ball seemed easy.  My drives, if not in the fairway, were just off the edge and did not put myself in trouble.  Length was very good as compared to the positions I normally play from.  The PXG Gen 5 0311XF driver set at 8° seems to be a very good combination with the ProLaunch 45 shaft.  On Saturday, I played my regular gamer of Ping G425 Max at 9° with a Ventus Velocore Blue 5S at 45".  Being 6 months out from shoulder surgery, I am deliberately trying to swing easy and the Otto Phlex driver definitely feels lighter.  The only thing I do not like about the Grafalloy ProLaunch 45 shaft is the graphics, but I am fixing that by spray painting the shaft matte black.  
    So far, the Gen 4 PXG 3 wood with the Prolaunch 45 shaft will not replace my Ping G410 with Ventus Velocore shaft.  The Otto Phlex combination in the 3 wood is too light for my preference.  I added some lead tape to the head of the PXG 3 wood to increase the swing weight, but I still hit the Ping 3 wood better.

    GM Y'all- another fun filled thrilling day at the fantasy factory- Hope the ones lucky enough to go out today have a great round/practice......... Didn't get to do any golfing over the weekend (except for some ATTEMPTED practice time Saturday morning). Wind was whipping through all weekend. Oh well, there'll be better days ahead. My new wedge order is being processed- so hopefully I'll get them sometime soon and the wind will die down at about the same time (I KNOW- I'm asking for a lot, but.....). Let's get this week over with.......

    Good morning and Congratulations on your retirement.  I retired in 2014, but because of some of my duties, I gave a 1 year notice so that some of the transitions that needed to happen seamlessly.  One thing that caught me by surprise - for me, Monday was always a rough day due to a lot of unknowns, so I’d periodically check emails starting late Sunday afternoon and evening, feeling the stress building back up. Monday was my least fav day.  On my first Monday of retirement, that all disappeared, and Monday became my fav day.

    Finished 9 holes early this morning with a 40.  Greens were really nice.  I missed this birdie putt.

    Happy Monday and Good Morning Spies,
    Had a great weekend, no golf but still great. Friends from Seattle visited. I made “family famous” lasagna on Saturday and we went to Mass on Sunday before they continued on their East Coast adventures. Then my wife and I attended another friend’s retirement party at Full Boar Brewery in North Syracuse. I know it’s tough duty to spend time at a brewery.
    This is my first Monday of retirement. Walked our dog 2 miles and came home to coffee and avocado toast. A good start so far. I will check the weather then look to get 9 holes in. 
    Wishing all a great day.

    I like Danny Maude - simple but solid instruction without endless commercials from wedge manufacturers that promise you'll hold it out from that deep bunker.

    This past year I've enjoyed Shawn Clement.

    I find a lot of his instruction to be very easy and much of it "just makes sense".
    I can't describe it well but his swing is a little quirky but that's not the point. His instruction is the important part anyway.
    See what you think.
