  1. I am looking for more detail. Is it a strokes gained type model? Or some other statistical analysis? How is the handicap analyzed. For example I miss a green, chip to 5 feet and 2 putt or miss a green chip to 20 feet and 3 putt. How does it compute handicap?
  2. I am glad the analytics have worked for you. I guess my question is why was what the arccos system said you needed to work on different than what you thought you should be working on? How does the system evaluate your game to tell you the areas to practice?
  3. It does give me distances but I am pretty sure I have to walk to the ball after I hit the club. It can probably be done but I just can't hit ten balls 125ish yards and determine distance. These sensors are designed for on course play which for me is the limitation. If I want to judge the distance for each club my neo ghost GPS already provides that feature. The newest arccos product that was developed with Microsoft holds some potential since it can provide course management type information.
  4. Live analytical data from the course doesn't interest me at all. I tried doing a Shots gained spreadsheet, but that just became to overwhelming to manage. I keep basic stats via the Grint app so I know how I am doing on fairways, greens, and putts. For me I know my game well enough to know where I need work. Really the only think I would want is some kind of launch monitor so I can track distances with each club so I know how to play on the course and that is primarily for wedges so I know what to hit into the greens for any given distance. I have done this on a basic level on the driving range with a rangefinder. If I can't use a simulator/launch monitor I would be just as happy with cones or markers on a driving range out to about 100 yards.
  5. I think I am like you, I try to shape the ball some when I am on the course and often I am not successful. I need to just stick to my normal shot shape.
  6. Worst case would be .610. I guess the next obvious question is did you preshrink? Is the diameter actually 5/8"?
  7. The deadline for player swaps is on the page next to where your player selection is displayed. It will look like the below: Round 1: Thu 2/2 9:30 am EST - passed Round 2: Fri 2/3 9:30 am EST - passed Round 3: Sat 2/4 10:50 am EST - passed Next Deadline (Round 4): Sun 2/5 10:50 am EST
  8. Congrats on the new gig; based on the work you have displayed here it is definitely warranted.
  9. 1. Pick the winning team - New England 2. Tie breaker 1: 34-24 - 58 total points 3. Tie breaker 2: Tom Brady 4: Tie breaker 3: 10 5: Final tie breaker: Heads
  10. We were talking about the MGS testing. Got off topic a little bit [emoji2]
  11. They may not but it would be harder to get rid of after Sam Snead used the side saddle method for so many years. I think since one of golfs legends used side saddle they won't permanently ban the method
  12. I personally enjoy the few match play events and then add on the Ryder and Presidents cups. On the LPGA side it is Solheim, International, and Kingsmill Championship ( volunteer at Kingsmill). Love the head to head competition the gamesmanship, the emotion, and that they are just different than the week in and week out stroke play events.
  13. I don't know a timeframe but I have been doing the putter testing and have 1 more session to go. Golfspy Sam told me that I am one of the farthest along. I think there are 8 sessions for putters (have lost count) and each session was about an hour long. Once everyone is complete they will have to compile the results and write and review the articles. My guess would be another 3-4 weeks for putters. Haven't started driver and irons yet although I have hit a few of the drivers in the simulator after my putter session.
  14. Was not the stroke that was non conforming. It was the actual putter an had to do with how it was shafted. I am sure he will make the necessary modifications and be back out the putting side saddle
  15. Let me ask you a question. Why do you want a new driver and what do you expect to accomplish? As others have said it will not magically improve your game or swing; you really need lessons and/or practice time to do that. If you just want new equipment because it is a new toy and you understand the fact that it may not be better than your current equipment then go for it. I would recommend you go to your local store get on a launch monitor and see which shaft/head combo gives you the best results and compare that to your current driver that you just tested on the same launch monitor. If you have goals to become a better golfer find a good instructor it is probably a better investment to improve your game. Then fine tune your equipment to help fill gaps.

  17. I had read the page which is where I didn't see path. Rotation is important, but rotation has to match up to path. Based on what I have learned and been shown regarding the putting stroke is that is that the vast majority of golfers do not have a perfect putter path an have a bias to the left or right which requires a putter that is open or closed to the putters path. Because of this square to target doesn't necessarily mean that that ball will start online.
  18. i looked but the one thing it didn't seem to track is putter path. Maybe I just missed it though.
  19. Research EQUS irons to see about the 3 length irons setup. https://www.equsgolf.com
  20. SAM Puttlab is a platform that will measure all aspects of your putting stroke to include but not limited to path, face angle at address, face angle at impact , putter rotation, tempo and uses that information to score your putting stroke and can then provide some putter recommendations. You can also get a report that shows everything about your stroke. Puttlab is in my opinion the cadilllac and Toni would be the Chevrolet. There are a few other systems. MGS showed one called hole more putts from the PGA show. If you are serious about improving your putting or learning about your stroke find a place that will do a Puttlab report for you. Search on google for Sam Puttlab and you will find there site.
  21. Did you test the new putter configuration on the puttlab to verify the stroke was starting the ballon your intended line. I understand edel is very much about aim but you did a lot of changes to your setup based on an initial baseline. Did I miss where you retested the new putter configuration?
  22. Just to add to this, they are players that are not entered hence the NE. Basically the system defaults to last weeks players
  23. You have a couple of choices. Pick what you want because it looks good, feels good, or makes you happy to play those particular clubs. Or get yourself fitted and identify the characteristics you need from clubs and then purchase those clubs from any of the above. How you purchase can vary based on what you are trying to buy. If used there are lots of outlets. If new. Buy anywhere since the price will be about the same. I have purchased from golf forums. Manufacturer, big box for both new and used, and online websites.
