    Sub70 golf

    I had my sub 70 hat on at the range today and one of our Mini Tour guys was all over me. He’s very interested in the CBs - that should tell all of us something. I have a friend with those and told the guy I would invite him (my friend) to play a week from Sunday afternoon. He said he’d meet us on the range to try them - my friend has Project x 5.5’s in his so the guy will at least get a feel for them. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  2. I’m really enjoying these matches - putting seems huge in match play, much more important than in stroke play. Great putting by Tony Finau down there stretch - wow! I wish the Big Break would come back. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  3. Learned 3 very important things today. 1. I respond much better to a dynamic warmup with the heavier, red SuperSpeed club. 2. CBD cream works - I forgot to apply it before hitting balls and my elbow flared up. It feels great now that I’ve applied the cream. 3. After playing around with driver, 2 different shafts, a variety of settings the one that my Ping long game fitter fit me for was clearly the best. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  4. It was not a good practice session at all in regards to speed. I will try it one more time in the future but at first blush I did not see the normal speed bump that I have when I’ve hit balls after doing a protocol in the past. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  5. I picked up a sleeve to try a different shaft in my G410 Max. When I brought to my guy who also replaced the grip - as he was putting it on he said, you like 1 wrap, right. There’s something to be said for familiarity. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  6. This is an important thread for everyone to read. I would never trust an LM in a big box store unless I knew it’s operator. As another little unhappy observation if the numbers you are getting on a LM seem lower than how far you think you hit the ball on the course and you aren’t using a tracking system of some sort - get a tracking system because the LM is probably right.

  7. Although many credible sources including Titleist state that compression is a meaningless number in regards to performance the higher compression x ball will only work well for extremely fast clubhead speeds. So are it seems as if that's the player profile that does well with it. Sadly for Dick's Trackman SS's over 110 make up about 1 percent of all golfers. The tour however is a better across the board performer and in fact could be a very good choice for a large swath of swing types especially higher launch players looking to control their trajectory.
  8. I would think that these clubs are a huge upgrade for any number of player types in terms of performance. My point is that while they address an issue for Ping or any other GI line of clubs - appearance, they aren’t necessarily an improvement over past offerings in that category, Also I have an unusual swing profile (shallow attack angle) which means that I get better results with a bit more loft rather than less. I also prefer a lighter shaft in my irons than Ping is offering in the 410. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  9. I've refrained from making this post up until this point because I wanted to see what our testers would find. I demo'd the 410's last spring when I was being fit as a part of the Ping long game testing. I came away underwhelmed and disappointed. Even though the lofts were stronger I carried my G30 7 iron significantly longer than the 410. My G30 also felt and sounded better. Granted it has an aftermarket fitted shaft so this may be as much an argument for fitting trumping slightly advanced technology as much as anything else. However, IMO the 410 is a step back for Ping. It looks a bit better than other clubs in the G line but if I were that concerned about looks I'd bite the bullet, play something gamier and waste, I mean spend all of my available practice time with it so that I could actually use it.
  10. Agreed but also it seems to me that SuperSpeed goes for over kill. For example they acknowledge that two workouts per week may be as effective as three. I think you have to ask questions and know yourself when you do these programs. To me the blue club was always the key - the faster I was dominant side with it, the faster I was with my driver. I’m going to try a blue club warm up today at the range. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  11. As we know our phones are smart and therefore auto corrects evolve. I typically sign my work emails: Blessings, Pastor However my phone now auto corrects that to blessed MGS! Uhm Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  12. Could you believe how open Ertz was all night? I'm with you on Shurmur and I'm not normally one to say coaches should go so quickly - I'd can him now and hire Rivera before some one else swoops him up.
  13. 2019 was a year that started off with great promise, renewed distance and ball striking led to some great early season success. Sadly though I didn't have the time to play that I would have liked and predictably I became less consistent - my low scores went from the low 70's to the high 70's and I also had some truly ugly rounds in the mix. I did play with a number of MGSers including Sportsman00, Foz and Rookie Blu. Still hoping to get another MGS round in before year's end. I loved the Ping Long Game test that I was a part of as well. My golf goal for 2020 is to play more by focusing on my St. Pete league (the course is 5 minutes from work so if I drop the one in Tampa that's an hour drive during rush hour I should be able to play more and be more focused.)
