  1. I’ll just pile on if you are tweaking because wind or other non optimal condition then it probably isn’t a stock shot. You need to change something to get your desired results. This could be accomplished in many ways: choking down, taking more club with less than full swing, or moving the ball back and delofting. golf is not always plays in optimal conditions and you need to learn how to adapt from shot to shot.
  2. You will get lots of Opinions on this ranging fro m you should have never gone to CC to they do a great job. the theory is that by obtaining the shafts separately CC will select a better weighted set of shafts than what an OEM will do. The OEM just picks a shaft and installs and don’t deal with the tolerances that are considered acceptable from the shaft maker. Puring/spine aligning is another polar opposite type thing. Some players think it is great and others don’t seem too. There is a list of players that have paid to have their names used along with Puring. Does it make the clubs better? maybe and it wont make them worse. Is the cost worth it? That is your call yes, the cost of the irons from CC is expensive, a search of this site would have discussed how their business model works. Some even say and provide examples of why their build quality is not great. the benefit would be their post purchase guarantees and follow up fitting validation. Many people say it isn’t good or not true, but something you should ask for clarification on how it works if you go through with the CC purchase. Buying from GG or TGW is pretty much buy the clubs and transaction complete.
  3. What do you want to accomplish with the new irons? From my testing, the PXGs are better than previous generations and are generally lower spinning heads. Titleist just makes classic looking high performing clubs. T200s are more of a distance club so the PXG may be a bit more comparable to what you play currently. Nothing wrong with any of the clubs, you need to figure out what is right for you.
  4. Looks great. I’m envious if your skills; I’d love to learn how to mill my own putter.
  5. For 99% of the golfers the approach of tweaking what you have is probably the best way since they won’t invest the time necessary to completely overhaul their swing. I asked about what pmookie was doing because the coach he is using teaches everyone the same swing and the junior players he coaches are successful. Look on his Instagram page and every kids swing looks basically the same. They do a lot of indoor time working on technique due to the weather in Denmark.
  6. Kerr was the first to come to my mind. Angela Stanford and Stacey Lewis after I searched some. Probably less prevalent now than it was before but I have seen a few outbursts during my volunteer time at my local LPGA event.
  7. are you going all in with his swing approach? I was pointed to his site a while ago and he definitely teaches a specific golf swing method.
  8. Some; there are some players that get pretty angry.
  9. Went to the range yesterday and hit the ball pretty terribly; then went to the short game area and hit pitches for a little while. wasn't looking forward to the round today based on how I hit the ball yesterday. Warmed up and was hitting the ball pretty well and it carried over to the round. Overall pretty solid ball striking with irons and short game. I changed the shaft and loft of my driver and struggled with it a little bit. Tee shots were either good or kind of popped up. Greens had been recently punched and the ball was bouncing a bit. 7 FW, 10 GIR, 32 Putts 41/38:79
  10. I know your frustration especially with the short game. This is what I have been working on for the past year+ and while I ma better it still isn't where I want it to be. I can hit the ball pretty well during my practice and warmup sessions and a about 70/30 when playing. All I can say is keep practicing your low point and wrist angles.

    Shorter Shafts??

    In my opinion: Maybe choking down changes the leverage that increases control; but I would say that you really don't get more "control", you in theory get less club speed with the same control. Since the ball goes a shorter distance, the same face angle results in a ball that is less offline. is that more control? Short may also enable you to swing the club better and get the path and face angle numbers to have less deviation. That would be more control. Trimming shafts; in theory, makes them stiffer not softer. Trimming the butt end an inch really doesn't make a significant difference in flex in either graphite or steel. Ultimately we shorten or lengthen a shaft to improve contact conditions and there isn't a single answer, the answer depends on the player and the players specific needs.
  12. How did it go with your playing partners?
  13. Does your coach say you need different clubs or a different setup? How qualified of a fitter is your coach?
  14. How does you loft lie machine compare to theirs? There is a tolerance for the machines as well. If yours reads 1 degree flat and theirs 1 degree upright there is a 2 degree difference. Not saying that they shouldn’t meet your specs but there are a lot of tolerances to deal with.
  15. I’d say different “issues”. Camera based LM have flight limitations as their algorithms calculate based on a few feet of information and don’t consider the balls aerodynamic properties. Radar units look at flight but as you mentioned struggle to capture things like spin. Was an interesting answer during the last MGS ball test when they explained why they were using both a GC Quad and a Trackman. Independently they are both good but In tandem they provide a more complete picture.
