  1. He rolled over in 2004 when the 52 inch Killer Bee was limited to 48”.
  2. What happened 3 years ago? New driver? Tried to change your swing? Just random happening? how long did you stick with those instructors? Were you hitting the driver better during the lessons and then struggled to reproduce during practice? why are you opposed to starting with a half swing? Just isn’t how golfers played? Not willing to do intermediate steps to get to the longer range goal? Just an initial guess would be that you have a swing issue and need to take lessons to figure it out. A new driver isn’t going to magically fix a swing issue. you are describing what I believe is a pull hook, ball starts left and then hooks. Do you understand the ball flight laws and what causes this shot shape? This is where launch monitors help, you face is obviously closed since it starts left. The next question is what is the path so you determine if you have an in to out or out to in path. If you don’t want to go the lesson route. You could try to fix by exaggerating and trying to hit push slices? Then working your way back to getting the desired ball flight.
  3. She knows me well and wouldn’t be surprised. I’ll just send my wife and her off shopping. Michael hasn’t built a full tilting one that I know of. I know he has a green he built in his basement but don’t know if it is adjustable. I tagged him so that he can build one and let us know how it goes and what he thinks. If I had a garage, I would have already built myself one; seems pretty straight forward and great for practicing breaking putts.
  4. Interesting, Your best option is to contact KBS directly. I have always found them very responsive to my inquiries.
  5. Several options in the marketplace. https://puttview.com/p7/ https://www.scienceandmotion.com/puttlab-platform/ (Just saw they have one of these where my daughter goes to school; may have to investigate when I head that way again.) https://www.johnnyfostergolf.com/e-greens/ And for the DIY guy like @GolfSpy MPR https://golfsimulatorguide.net/tilting-putting-platform/
  6. Tour V doesn't come in a 90 gram. Tour-V is a taper tip and is just butt trimmed to length.
  7. Per the Flightscope site you may not have enough distance from ball to net: Mevo can be used indoors and outdoors. The space requirements for indoors is 8 feet of ball flight and 4-7 feet behind the impact. In total you will need up to 15 feet of space. They also identify objects that will infer with the radar in their manual. https://www.flightscopemevo.com/manual/2020-mevo-manual.pdf Have you contacted their support?
  8. Nope, I try to be consistent. There is a discussion thread on heads up putting where some people only do heads up on shot to mid length and then head down for longer putts. Need to do what works for you.
  9. I have the Iomics on my driver and hybrids and like them a lot. I got some samples which is why I put them on my clubs about 2 months ago so I have no long term experience. They probably hold up better because of the material they are made from.
  10. While the latest model may not be better, I think head design has a bigger influence than shaft. From my experience the wrong head design can not be fixed with a different shaft. Shaft is definitely important to help deliver the club properly but it won’t make a low spinning head have more spin.
  11. I generally use whatever comes on the club. When it wears out I but what is on sale. The only gripe I didn’t like were black widow but every thing else has held up well. I have tried grips from hireko house brand to iomic. Typically I pick Lamkin cross line or golf pride tour velvet.
  12. On a centered strike you are probably correct that all heads can potentially produce the same ball speeds. However, the other differences with heads would be how they handle miss hits as this is where most people lose ball speed. Find the head that has max forgiveness for you miss. Also head weighing and appearance influences how you swing the club and thus influences results.
  13. For me stroke length changes based on distance and I try to maintain the same tempo. I also have the same setup for any length putt. in my opinion putting is about personal choices and understanding how those choices impact performance. There isn’t a single answer; just like the full swing, on how to putt.
  14. No, any length was allowed until 2004 when the 48” max was added along with the head size limitations. As mentioned in the thread, very few Golfers will be impacted. Phil and Bryson have been experimenting with longer shafts and Brooke Henderson has used a 48” shaft for years.
  15. I think they were a little under the weather after having soaked up to much of the chemicals they recently put on the grass; they have a little chemical dependency Bob also said you really don't like my area of town ever since they did this to Red Ball as part of #FindItCutIt https://twitter.com/GolfSpyT/status/1193631108178546689?s=20
  16. Went to the short game practice area to work on my pitches again. Overall went pretty well; contact and distance control were both pretty good. Only problem was I hit into a yellow ball family reunion. I apologized and asked if they knew @Yellow Ball They all got pretty quiet when I mentioned him so I just dropped the subject. When I was leaving I got stopped by Bob; I am terrible with names and I think he said it was Bob. Anyway Bob said that that are all a little hesitant to talk about @Yellow Ball since he skips all the family events and seems to like hanging out with MGS people more. I heard some great stories from Bob, he was up from Augusta and lives in the pond on the 16th at Augusta National. He said it favorite time of the year was the Masters when the players skip balls across the pond, He just has to keep his head down. Bob also said while the group as a whole has a couple of Vice's, @Yellow Ball had a good looking cover, but if you looked at the core he was a little off center.
  17. Thanks for the clarification. Haven’t read any of the detailed articles that discuss actual implementation.
  18. It will only impact her if the USGA and R&A invoke a local rule limiting driver length. My guess would be that the rule option will be ignored on the women’s side of golf.
  19. Couple of topics on those shafts that I linked below General consensus seems to be that they are mediocre shafts and have have quality issues with their epoxy jobs. https://forum.mygolfspy.com/topic/40969-steadfast-golf-driver-shaft/?tab=comments#comment-688362 https://forum.mygolfspy.com/topic/43928-steadfast-golf-customer-service/?tab=comments#comment-746157
  20. For some reason I am reading into your posts that you aren't seeking lessons for yourself but have a great option for remote lessons for us.
  21. I think it is definitely a @Yellow Ballkind of day.
  22. You probably need to provide more info. What are the distances between the mevo and the ball and the ball and the net? Are the mevo and ball at the same level? Maybe a picture of your setup.
  23. The original question was about what a provisional isn't an option in a penalty area. The line you quoted was an example of a potentially unfair advantage if a provisional was allowed for a ball in a penalty area.
  24. Love the scenery in you photo. penalty strokes are a killer; I know this is an obvious statement but really work to avoid those. what was the issue with the 8 pitch/chip shots? Missing greens will result in lots of these shots. I am guessing lots of thin and fat shots. No need to get to a range for these, just go in your backyard and work on contact and hitting these short shots.
  25. Totally understand. The key is identifying the right metrics to show improvements. For most of us it is fairly obvious where we are losing strokes and the details I mentioned are really more geared toward the better player. I am guessing you also keep track of first putt distance because missing a 3 foot putt but leaving it inside of 2 feet and only knowing it was a 2 putt inside if 2 feet isn’t very telling As I have learned more about golf metrics I kind of like the ones in the DECADE foundation level(The Tiger 5 and the mental scorecard). I personally don’t think that FIR, GIR, and putts are good golf performance indicators to drive improvement.
