    Korn Ferry

    With all due respect I really preferred Hogan tour Why not Hogan tour brought to you by? So the fact that my phone changed my title and wouldn’t let me edit it says what I wanted to. Would a moderator please log on and change the name? Pretty please with sugar on it? My desire was not to disrespect Korn but to respect Ben Hogan. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  3. Oh as a back up I will take Bernard Langer - his has held up okay too. :) Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  4. Yeah I expected this one and why not? I’m 5’9” 162 right now - I’m going with a sleeper - Larry Nelson - I’m taking the fact that it repeated well enough to win 3 majors and yet goes unnoticed. Yeah give me Larry - I might be able to handle his. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  5. Great stuff - the first thing that I told my trainer a year and a half ago was - I will exercise but I won’t go to the gym. She had no trouble constructing an at home program for me that has worked just fine. One thing that I’ve learned is that it doesn’t take a lot to get fit - just a little bit every day and eat properly most of the time. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  6. I continue the use what my fitter recommends. Right now it’s 45.25”. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  7. Really nice job on the reviews guy. Between the Most Wanted Testing, 410 reviews and yours I’m noticing a trend. It seems that to get higher launch and lower spin rates OEMs have had to sacrifice sound/feel. Your reactions to the Callaway’s sound are identical to mine the first time that I heard the 410. It didn’t sound like $500. It sounded cheap. Your reactions in that category Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  8. Thanks - mine was more a curiosity question - my fitter had a recommended setting for me that I’ve followed. I’ve got a 12 degree head set down to 11 neutral. Interestingly my 400 LST was a 10 set up to 11. But the differences between the slightly closed verses slightly open face along with the lighter shaft are incredible. I was 6/6 with the driver in league last night - I loose less than 10 yards on miss hits, can fade or draw the club on demand. Too bad I had to hit the other 13 clubs. :) Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  9. Looking great! Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  10. Any league that I’ve played in follows the rules of golf with any modifications being listed as a local rule. (Which is still following the rules) I do agree that if you’re playing for fun with friends or with a regular informal group you should feel free to do as you’d like to have fun so long as what you’re doing doesn’t hold up play or disturb other groups. But in league play which the OP stated this was in, I’d probably talk to the guy after the round and suggest he look at the rule book or consult with a league officer - I wouldn’t bother him about it during the round although I should. It’s not fair to the rest of the guys in that league. It’s really not up to me to determine whether or not it’s to his advantage - he’s clearly, blatantly and repeatedly breaking a rule.

  11. I foolishly agreed with those guys at one point in my life even though my pro back in Wisconsin started by asking what my goals were because if they were to play on the champions tour I needed to hit the gym. Through lessons, proper fitting and the ability to play/practice year round once we moved to Florida, I got myself all the way down from 5 to below a 2. At 55 I was extremely competitive as a senior player in a county of nearly a million people. But age an extra weight, lack of fitness and extra weight caught up with me. I drifted from the mid 160’s in my 20’s and 30’s to the mid 180’s in my 40’s (not bad - just a little paunch like most middle aged guys). Not enough extra weight to impact my swing or my game at that age. But as I moved to my late 50’s stuff started happening, fast - work became stressful, 185 became 195 and inching towards 200, 205, 210. Suddenly I had a heart issue (genetically predisposed to it) and even though that’s controlled through an ablation and medication I was on the verge of diabetes. On the golf course I lost 30 yards and my scores as ended accordingly. Frankly I only played golf for social reasons, the fun wasn’t in the game anymore, it was in spending time with friends. It was in one of those round after failing to carry a pond that I could hit a 5 wood over five years prior that a long time friend asked when the baby was due. That was late January of 2018. When I stepped on the scale at the start of my fitness program on February 4th I weighed 209 buck naked. My goal was to get back to 185. I got there by late April and didn’t stop. I got to my college playing weight 168 for my 62nd birthday in October and weighed 165 on Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter so I’m maintaining. Had a physical two weeks ago and my doctor flipped out. She said I’m a totally different person than the last time that she saw me - blood work great, BP 110/68 vs 130/85, sitting heart rate 64 v 85. I told her I was working on moving the needle a tad lower to 162. She said great idea but not too much lower than that. Weighed in this morning at 161.9. Who cares about golf, fitness matters for life - any argument against it is foolish. You owe it to the people whom you love and yourself to stay as fit as possible. But since the question was about golf - I’ve regained 25 yards with driver, a full club plus with irons - my last four rounds I’ve shot 77,70,77 and was 2 under Sunday afternoon when the rains came. One of those rounds was competitive the others casual. I’m being accused of sandbagging i my leagues - I’m not - it just takes a bunch of 9 hoke rounds for the handicap to catch up - I was a 9 (for 18) in one league and a 7 in the other so getting 5 and 4 a side. It absolutely matters but golf is the least of a person’s worries. This from a guy who will be burying a non fit 59 year old on Saturday. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  12. This actually happened with Phil once. He had 1,000 people looking for a ball that he wanted to abandon and someone found it, oops! You can’t use a putting ball, while there may be occasions where you can change balls during play on a hole it’s not always going to happen. The PGA tour has a local rule that prohibits playing a different type ball even when is taken out of play - so if you start with aPro VIx you must continue with it. That goes back to a time when guys would switch ball type hole to hole depending upon the wind or type of hole they were play. That rule does not apply to us so I could play one hole with my Yellow RevKev Pro VIx and the next with a Taylor Made TP 5x as I did yesterday - there was a 45 minute deluge between 7 and 8 yesterday - it was so wet afterwards that I didn’t want to risk one of my gamers. :) Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  13. Tom, Here's the thing - there is no industry standard for "flex". I think that's what Plaidjacket was getting at. In fact shafts may vary in regards to flex even within the same manufacturer - one of their so called S flexes may play weaker than an R flex in another line - for example Aerotech - In their standard line if you were to play their R 110 it would be a stronger shaft than the S flex in the Volant series - in fact that R 110 might be stronger than a lighter weight steel dynamic golf S flex. It's all too complicated not to get fit by a competent fitter. Also more and more OEM's are getting away from the Senior Designation (whatever letter they would use) and are calling that flex a week regular. According to the question that you are asking I use the flex that my fitter has fit me for. I have a very smooth swing and do well with clubs that might seem weaker than my swing speed - at 95 mph I'm between a classic R and an S - I actually have what might be labeled a senior shaft in my driver and kill the thing high and straight - It's exactly the shaft I was fit for. Good luck with that new shaft in your driver. The right ones for your game do make a difference.

    US OPEN

    It’s been an interesting week - interesting and informative about the game of golf IMO. Normally tee to green determines the outcome - not this week. It’s all about putting this week and of the leaders are putting their rock. (Or skipping the putting because they are chipping in) :) Smaller greens means more of them missed and a larger importance for the short game. This may cause me to rethink some things because on this course their game is more similar to ours - they have to get up and down more frequently than they are used to. I was only going to watch when I got home from playing this afternoon. Instead I’m recording and catching the entire thing. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  15. I’m curious how the driver is working out. I’m a month or so behind you. Mine just came a week and a half ago and is going to the course for the first time after church today - on the range it’s killing the one it’s replacing and it certainly did in the fitting - and it replaced last years MGS Most Wanted Driver!
