  1. I’m happy for him - I think he wanted to stay with the Angels and he got reasonably compensated for it. He may have squeezed a bit more out next winter but this is now locked in. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

  3. Since this has re-emerged and since I'm guessing that SuperSpeed is no longer monitoring this thread I'm going to jump in and say that according to their research this is yet another tried and true saying that has been disproven - they would argue that you if you try to swing as fast as you are able to you will the ball farther and more accurately and that they have the data to prove it.
  4. I’ve been able to play throughout the training. I’ve had a couple of times when my swing has felt odd leading to ball striking uncertainties but that has past in a week or two. My biggest “accuracy” issue has been that I’ve needed to change my lines on doglegs and run outs. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  5. I had to go to work but it was fun to watch a US Open break out at the Valspar Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  6. I played there a few weeks ago. Had tickets for yesterday but ended up having to work. I’ve been there enough to know what it’s playing like. :) Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  7. Yes - if you are a competitive sort you’re constantly trying to figure out what to do to swing faster. You also try to capture the feeling of the “special” drills which certainly help to create speed. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  8. Okay so I was the troll yesterday on the practice green. The last several weeks there has been a young guy, obviously a beginner, spraying his bucket of balls all over the practice green trying to hit basic chips. His dispersion pattern yesterday was larger than the practice green and this is an extremely large practice green. It was classic, he’s taking the club back far enough to hit a full shot and then decelerating. So I approached him, asked if he wouldn’t mind two very simple pieces of advice. He’s seen me chip for three or four weeks and so said - anything you’ve got man. First swing he was inside five feet and hit lots of them there. The green was safe again. My second piece of advice was to book a lesson with the pro. :) Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  9. Facts - don’t bother me with them man! Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  10. That looks like an awesome read - thanks! Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  11. Those greens are firm - it carried about 190 (which is still ridiculous). It’s supposed to be warm and dry again tomorrow - we are finally getting our normal late winter - early spring weather. It’s been a wet winter - the last time it was this wet was the year Kenny came to visit. :) Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  12. Happy birthday, Mike! Thanks to both you and Kenny. The 20 to 30 minutes three times a week hit really hairy in December and April could be that way, too. Every who knows me know that I’m abetter me when given a little Tim to play golf. This year has been rough because we’ve been short staffed but that’s about to change Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  13. In their defense this one requires that there be adequate somewhat climate controlled space. It’s not just the time, it’s the space. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  14. Wow - I thought we had a number of these threads but coming here perhaps its been a while since we've had one (I'm getting old and forgetful) You can tell from my signature that I am not brand "loyal" nor am I locked into using a major OEM or the newest equipment. However there are certain brands that I know generally work for me in the iron/driver category - the two areas that I change most frequently. I will gravitate towards those brands first which means some very popular brands never get a crack there. I believe that every major OEM makes high quality equipment and that it would be possible for me to get fit into a set from each that would work just fine for my game. But I don't have the time or money for that so I stick with the ones that I know better and have had success with. Really interesting answers here. Enjoyable read
  15. This happened to me once and quite honestly became the impetus for my going to Seminary. The layoff came from out of the blue right when my wife was pregnant with our first child - what a sucker punch! I was able to hustle some scratch by selling burglar alarms door to door, that and the money the company gave me let us get through the time okay until I found a real job. I did play some golf during that time - I was on the road all day any way so I played 9 here or there - golf has been my outlet throughout adulthood. Good luck and so sorry about your current situation. I'm sure that something good will come from it though. Look for that opportunity and you will land on your feet ready to jump higher again.
  16. I hadn’t thought about that - could it be that this system helps a player find his or her own swing? I know I’m much more in tune with the ground than I used to be. Interesting I'm adding this part as an edit rather than separately - @Kenny - If I don't feel as if I'm releasing my right side I frequently get stuck too far inside - it shows how we all need different swing thoughts or images to get through the ball in the proper sequence. For me its left shoulder under chin and then replace that with the right shoulder ASAP. Glad you guys are getting out to play and seeing the results that I have. As Joen wrote, it’s a game changer. Now for finding the dough to get new equipment - that’s an issue... a nice issue but an issue never the less. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  17. They’re finally here - the Revs stash for 2019. Can’t wait to see if I can see these babies - I often don’t see white and even when I do I rarely see a drive finish. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  18. You accomplished that goal - I generally blah blah blah the technical stuff but I read and understood yours - thank you. Everything points to this year being the year of the driver. All the OEMs except Ping seem to have made a big jump - Ping made their jump last year so they were ahead - As I start trying drivers I will be anxious to see if I might get some yardage over that G400. Chisag has convinced me to add this driver to my must try list. Thanks - I think [emoji848] Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

  20. You and I are wound the same way. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

  22. So today was an ASD but I had the radar out for the dynamic warm up and I did this with the red club. 2 mph over my record with that club and that’s on the double step move. This was on a regular swing. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  23. Congrats guys - I'm sure you will enjoy this test! I'm even more sure that we will enjoy reading it.
  24. My club is the only place where I’ve ever played where a number of holes register longer on GPS than the card - always. It’s because the made errors in measuring some holes when the course was laid out and it’s never been changed on the signs - the handicap team adjusted course ratings for it when they were here 3 years ago to reassess the course rating and slope from all tees. Of course the inaccurate holes are the long par 4’s 1, 8, 9, 18. And yes PMookie is correct that many people over estimate their distances by simply going off the card and failing to account for tees being moved up or doglegs. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
