    Ireland Golf Lover got a reaction from IndyBonzo in Show us your Maltby!!!   
    Maltby sells excellent products! I own two sets of their forged irons (both purchased as a pak), a Maltby pure track putter and a KE4 driver. I’m happy with the performance and feel of all of these products and they are a lot less in cost.

    Ireland Golf Lover got a reaction from Preeway in GEM training aid   
    Anyone have one of these? I bought one based on the recommendation of Steve Johnson, a European PGA member who has a YouTube channel. I was skeptical, but thought “what the heck” and took the plunge. I was amazed at what this device taught me. I practiced with it for two weeks, three times a day, five minutes per session. After one week of following the prescribed regimen, I learned what I needed to do to stop the wobble. Then, after my second week of practicing the regimen, I went to the driving range, hitting off of grass, to see if this device “walks the talk.” Wow! I was amazed at my “flush” contact, consistency, and shot dispersion. This literally teaches you how to swing the club and get in the “slot.” If you buy one of these (gemgolf.com), don’t think you bought a piece of junk because you can’t stop the wobble after a few tries/practice sessions. Remember…it took me a week of practice.
     
    Also, GEM Golf also has a YouTube channel, which is very well done, and will guide you through the process. In closing, I don’t worry about positions, slotting the club, shallowing the club, etc, etc., because when you learn to stop the wobble with the GEM, all of those things (positions, slotting, shallowing, etc.) happen automatically. Steve Johnson also shows you how to use the GEM on his channel as well.

    Sorry I don’t have any pictures. Check it out at gemgolf.com.

    Ireland Golf Lover got a reaction from GaryF in What's your on course style?   
    I’m also a tradionalist…collared shirt (no sleeveless “wife beater” shirts), no cargo shorts or slacks, shirts tucked, no backwards hats, belts, and I DETEST SLOW PLAY. You either hit it well or you don’t…it either goes in the hole or it doesn’t, so there’s no sense standing over it to long and being rude to the other players in your group or the groups behind you. Padraig Harrington, Patrick Cantlay, Azahara Munoz, and Carlotta Cigando…do you hear me!

    I used to work at MacGregor in the late 60s until the mid 70s, during my high school and college years, when they were located in Cincinnati. We made great clubs back then…the VIPs, Tommy Armour Silver Scots, Tourney Customs, MTs, DXs, and persimmon woods, especially the deep face George Bayer model. I see the current MacGregor iron offering that will be tested is an updated version of one of their best selling vintage models, the MT wingback. It will be interesting to see what the feedback is after testing, because when I worked at MacGregor the lie angles were flatter and lofts were weaker. That said, I know I’ll get flack for saying this, but today’s “standard” club offerings being upright promote an over the top downswing, making it more difficult to swing from the inside on the downswing. Don’t get me wrong…you can play that way and have success, but I have my doubts it’s consistent.
