  1. I would still ask if you had the data to back what you’re writing - Golf is a funny game, it may seem like you are more accurate from 140 than from 80 because your expectation is so much greater from 80. It could be though that your proximity to the hole is in fact better at 80. Having a shot tracking system of some sort will help make your practice and course strategy better. It will answer the questions that you are asking. For example if you are hitting 80 percent of your fairways at 290 yards and shooting in the high 70’s you have a significant flaw somewhere else. The general rule is the closer you can safely hit it to your target the lower the score you will shoot. If that’s not happening you are either taking too many penalties (including hitting it in the trees or fescue) or your wedge game needs work, Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  2. If you’re looking to shoot par you should check your stats to see if reality matches perception. What is your actual proximity to the hole with your 60 vs your 8 iron? Are you as consistent and accurate with the club that leaves you 140 as the driver that leaves you 80? I know that I’ve wasted plenty of shots in my life because I thought something that turned out to be wrong. Yes in answer to your original question. I’ve often played a hole backwards in my mind. Good luck! Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  3. I have two fiends that have bought Ping G410 max drivers this season. Also a friend who used tru fit to buy his driver. One of the Pros at my club is doing SuperSpeed. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  4. I didn’t quite know how to title this one. About a month ago I went for what I thought was going to be an hour long lesson. As I was warming up on our back range I kept hitting 9 iron after 9 iron 30 feet right of where I was trying to aim - the shots were well struck but no matter what I did they went right. My teacher arrived just as I was letting out an exasperated cry after yet another shot. “Hit one and I will stand behind you to check your alignment.” I hit one, same result. Here’s what he saw. My feet were aligned straight at my target but my shoulders were aiming on the line my ball was starting. Further my back foot was flared out making it difficult for me to get aligned properly and creating some other issues. I guess this happened either because I had gained so much weight or during my weight loss. Even there way he had me square the back foot and hit a few shots - while it felt uncomfortable there was no longer a need for a lesson. Since that day the old Rev has returned, consistent solid hit strikes through the bag with just a touch of draw, lots of them. I’m writing this as a reminder that sometimes it’s the simple things and it’s important to periodically check your fundamentals, grip, set up, alignment, posture. That often needs a second set of eyes but it can make a works of difference. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  5. I’m a 2 by his definition but the deeper dive is that I don’t play enough competitive rounds to really improve - hoping to change that in the upcoming year. Lots of wisdom in this piece. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  6. Shot scope requires wearing a watch but no phone. It has several different options including a shot tracking only option. I’ve been please with it. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  7. I should state that my “bias” comes because I’ve gamed something before and it worked. I’ve had lots of fittings but only one where everything was on the table and that only for driver. It was a surprising result but I played very good golf with that driver. So what my “bias” does is it gives me a starting point - since there is plenty of good stuff out there I rarely get past two brands before I find what works. It’s actually much bigger news that an OEM is making something that’s NG tha something that’s high quality. IMO that was the huge news from the ball test. A top OEM is producing a sub standard ball that is negatively impacting people’s performance. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

  9. You and I are in solidarity in regards to Palmer courses. Even though it’s a beautiful property I’m even meh about Bayhill. For real Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

  12. I’ve found through time that Ping and Mizuno Drivers work best for my swing (must be their design theory). I start with them and rarely stray although the R11s that I won through MGS and SLDR have had stints in my bag - long but not forgiving enough for me. I’m a Ping guy with fairways and irons - I’ve strayed plenty but end up here always. Terry Kober for wedges - whatever he is calling his wedge at the moment, that’s what’s in my bag. Mallet carefully fitted putter - this club never changes - the one my EVENRoll Er 5 replaced was in 10 years. It’s been in 3 now with no plans to come out. Pro VIx type of ball - it stays in the whole season, too. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

  14. This little guy was fiercely guarding the 17th fairway. Didn’t stop me from splitting it and having a great look at birdie. :) Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  15. Sadly I played great - why? Because I was testing golf balls. At least two balls a hole and often 3 on the front nine. On the back I played 2. I was 2 over on one of the balls that I played throughout the round. I was one over whenever I played my gamer but did not play it on every hole. Wish I had Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
