  1. I have V soles in my wedges so that’s a non-factor for me - it’s that 7-8 gap that I’m most interested in. I can always tweak lofts at the top end on my own. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  2. Have you considered CBD cream? That stuff works well for most people. It’s been a Godsend for me. I use it on my left elbow and fingers two or three times a week. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  3. Lots of times I enjoy reviews just because I like to see what others do. You guys all amaze this old school guy with your technical skills. This test is different though. I’m looking forward to hearing how you all do with this particularly as they transition through the set. I had a great integrated combo iron set for a number of years and have longed for that same set up since I aged out of them. It’s eluded me so far - either the turf interaction differs as the model type changes or the gapping is not right or the visual between model switches is too dramatic - right now I’ve settled for that last one - the jump from a SCOR 48 which is a blade to a GI Ping G30 PW is very tough on the eyes. Looking forward to it gents - Sluggo I particularly have my eyes on you on this one. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  4. Not since the advent of modern drivers. They have so much tech build into them that they are the easiest club in the bag to hit. Just go get fit so that you're sure you have what you need - perhaps you would benefit from a different length shaft, more or less loft, something like that. But really driver should be a very easy club to hit. Years ago I often played without a driver - going back to pre-metal wood and sometimes even early metal wood days I frequently kept the driver in the bag - I also was a lot younger than and could hit the ball much farther.

    Getting fit?

    10 year old irons that you weren't fit for? I'm guessing you are looking at a 20 percent drop in your handicap index - from 8 to something closer to 6. I had a 3.8 index for the longest time until about 15 years ago - I got fit for clubs and started taking lessons (something I hadn't ever done). I got my index down to where it stayed between .8 and 1.2 for over two years between the ages of 55-57. I had some health issues and subsequent weight gain that drove it back up to close to 9. Over the past two to three years I've enrolled in a fitness program and worked hard on my game - my index is back down to a 5.1 which is about as good as I'm going to get it given my age 63, and the limited amount of time that I have to play because of other obligations.
  6. Generally I do mine on grass in my back yard with soft spikes - I have a spot that's worn down and its hard to grow grass there anyway. I've used the driveway while keeping the radar and swing area on grass and that worked fine. I've also tried the gym at church - I lost speed on that surface.
  7. I've certainly seen 8's have this sort of day. I've certainly had this sort of day or more accurately I've had some pretty bad days even as a 1 or 2 and they weren't at courses that were nearly as tough as the Medalist. The QBs were playing from a distance that the FLGA recommends for expert male golfers - 6,800 at Sea Level. Throw in the conditions, the nerves, the partnerships and anything would be possible. BTW I have no clue why I can't get this off of italics - that's not normal for me. I guess when typing handicap will take a hit. And just a minute - did someone write that they suspect that Tom Brady may bend the rules a bit when he plays golf. Really, not a chance. (There may be a touch of sarcasm here)
  8. @getoffmylawn I was also in the first test group - one of the goals of these testing threads is entire forum participation. Occasionally OEMs weight in as well so questions or observations are good. One of the benefits that I found from the SuperSpeed program was improved ball striking consistency - That can come from lessons too - those sometimes cause a step back to take a step forward. I’m sure the Orange whip is fine but if your going to truly see a benefit from SuperSpeed you are going to need some turbulence as your swing takes off and you get faster. Good luck Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  9. Kenny witnessed them rating his course a couple of years ago. I’m not great at digging up old threads but it was a great read if someone can find it. I go by yardage as well - I’m bordering on Super Senior hood which means according to the FGA that I would play from 6200 as a top level player. Honestly I try to keep it between that and 6,000. That’s just right for me at Sea Level. I can go longer up North or in the mountains. My club has a set of tees that are 6100, 71.7 slope of 132. Its perfect - if I break 80 from those tees I feel like I’ve accomplished something. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  10. Always a big deal - good luck everyone Thanks Cobra and MGS! Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  11. Seems reasonable enough - at least it salvaged something. But let me get this straight, next “season” will have 6 majors now? Not that it impacts us fir fantasy but that’s crazy. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  12. I’m going to see if I can hunt down an open shop with a quality LM. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  13. Has anyone asked Kyle what Superspeed’s rebuttal to the blue club challenge would be? Take care of yourself ChasingScratch - we had someone in our group go down and fall behind - it was no big deal in the long run. Also your wife was correct about being faster outside than inside, grass or first allow you to use the ground much better than synthetic surfaces. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  14. Back to the weight thing - I never bothered to weigh my driver because there’s a club’s actual weight and it’s swing weight. I doubt my ability to successfully find my driver’s actual weight and trust that it’s swing weight is D4. Ay least it was when my fitter checked it for me pre COVID. Kenny and I went back and forth on this quite a bit. I love the guy but we are wired differently - the weight thing never bothered me. On a similar note though my 410 feels lighter to me than my G400 LST did. I actually wonder if I wouldn’t benefit from the yellow stick. The grass always seems greener you know.

  15. I’ve gone back to ARCCOS because of the upcoming Shots Gained feature. :) BTW for those who game it how close is your ARCCOS handicap index to your real one? Mine is off by about a stroke. It think it’s because ARCCOS is calculating my handicap from a full set of tees rather than the blended one that I’m often playing. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
