  1. I was going to suggest the sleeves as well. This seems to be the go to strategy now at all levels.
  2. The biggest thing is finding a coach you connect with and explains things in a way you understand. When I was looking for an instructor, I took a lesson and asked questions about what changes were recommended and how they would work to improve my game and what type of communication was acceptable between lessons. Basically the first lesson is an interview. Doesn’t even have to be a full lesson maybe a quick swing evaluation. talk about you goals and objectives to see if they align. For example, If you want a couple of quick fixes or a preseason tune up don’t pick an instructor that wants to rebuild you swing. you can always read reviews but just because they have good reviews doesn’t mean they are right for you.
  3. Current gamer: custom Bellum Winmore. But I have a SeeMore coming soon to experiment with. Below was prior to it being shafted; has a black shaft now
  4. Does it putt well with the plastic? Great way to keep it lookin new
  5. This is why the European tour is so good. The experiment and try new ideas….mixed event, shot clocks, interviews while playing, etc. different tees help equalize the players so they are hitting the same basic clubs into green. Also shows that the ladies can play some great golf and showcases their talent thanks for posting this; just tuned in.
  6. Message a mod is the right process. For donor you need to provide you transaction Id so it can be verified. Don’t know which mod you contacted but there has been some turnover. @GolfSpy MPR is probably the one you should reach out too.
  7. Congrats on the new work opportunities sounds exciting and glad you aren't going away as I always like reading about your weekly bag updates.
  8. You could increase the loft on the 50 to 51 and see if that drops off 5 yards and then maybe deloft the 54 to 53. I'd think about making the 58 a 59 as well.
  9. I have 2 specialty wedges in my bag. Couldn’t tell you the grinds. Right now my 54 has 14* and my 58 has 12** I also have a 54* with 8. I don’t notice any difference when I play them as far as ability to make shots.
  10. In my mind a bad call is a rules infraction that was committed but wasn’t assessed the appropriate penalty. IMO, this was not a bad call, it was a rules infraction and the appropriate penalty was applied base on the rules of golf. hoefully this doesn’t turn into an I don’ agree with this rule so it shouldn’t have been a penalty type thread….
  11. Yes he had the lofts weakened by about 1.5* as listed in his post. The distance is probably related to playing more if a GI type iron vs players iron; he discusses his plan in the original post on this topic: Winder spec is simply what he is calling the specs for these clubs…attempt at humor.
  12. I have a 58 in the bag but almost never use it; My 54 is my go to wedge. I use it unles I am hitting chips where I use primarily 9 iron.

  14. I am a big fan of putting gates for the putter and ball to make sure I am hitting the center of the face and starting the ball online. I’d also recommend a line or half colored balls to see if ball is rolling end over end. ExPutt is a great tool for learning putting distance control if you can’t get to an actual green.
  15. IMO, feel is something that is learned. People always say thinks I don’t thing about mechanics when throwing a baseball; that is true, but to throw a baseball 40:feet you have to build those feels through repetition. For putting you need to practice rolling the ball specific distances… how far do I move my hands or the head of the putter to roll the ball specific distances. For me I move the putter head specific distances and always keep the same tempo. For example a 10 for putt moves the putter back to my big toe, 20 feet is just outside my right foot, etc. once on the course I know what it feels like to move the putter that far so I just do it without the mechanical thoughts. when you go to another course you try rolling a 10 foot putt and see how far the ball goes. If it is short of 10 feet the greens are slower and you need a bigger stroke. F farther then you need to use a smaller stroke. practice by doing ladder drills. Focus on being able to roll the ball a specific distance as speed dictates a lot of the decision process about putting.
  16. Want to change my 54* wedge. It is on order; projected arrival date is 5 weeks; down from the original 8 week quote.
  17. Playing the Same course all the time you should have the speed figured out. How do you control the distance a putt goes?
  18. Generally with virtual golf putting is not done vey well. So instead of trying to putt everything he just turns on that feature. Basically he is focusing on everything but the putter when playing on the simulator.
  19. I’d be careful with the metrics you are keeping. The ones you provided may not be great at giving you an indication of you ability. putts per round really doesn’t tell you anything by itself. For example I have a round with 18 putts and a round with 36 putts. You would think the 18 putt day was better but maybe it isn’t. On the 18 putt day I missed every green but chipped inside of 3 feet on every hole and made the putt. On the 36 putt day I hit every green in regulation and 2 putted every hole. Need to look at putts per GIR non GIR putts three putts while bad will happen if you have lots of first putts outside of 30 feet. strokes gained putting is a better metric, feet of putts made, make percentages for every distance by foot (the 50/50 line for a pga pro is 8 feet), how many 3 footers do you miss? give Lou Stagner a follow on Twitter; he provides lots of good information to help manage expectations.
  20. Updating what I wrote; apparently cameron made some classic bullseye putters in roughly 1998. I knew he made the one like yours @M. Parsons; didn't know he redid the Reuter version. https://www.scottycameron.com/authentication/registry/Details.aspx?rn=A008601
  21. Not sure what help you need, they are not scotty cameron's. People put wording in ebay listings to generate a sale; buyer beware and do your homework. Update: Found one on the cameron registry: https://www.scottycameron.com/authentication/registry/Details.aspx?rn=A008601 Looked at the one on Ebay and it could be one of them; not sure how many were made.
  22. If the course was that crowded then the twosome in front of your group should have been on the heels of the group in front of them so they should have been able to keep up. I have seen courses advertise that they will give warnings and direct groups to skip holes but have never seen it done. Generally the resort type courses seem to be more forgiving since they don't want the bad reviews this might bring. While you didn't see a message on the GPS, did the foursome see the two messages that were displayed on their GPS? I also don't think 10 minutes behind is that much; basically a little more than half a hole. If it were me, i'd probably be a little upset but I do appreciate the course doing something to try and control pace of play.
  23. We could get you to be one of the most wanted testers as well.
  24. I've had my Nikon for over 15 years. Basic model but still works like new.
