  1. You certainly shall fairly soon shan’t you! :) Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  2. I'm sure that what our esteemed moderator has written is true. This comment and others like it are spot on. Since the original post was about equipment I would also throw in fitters and club repair guys. A good fitter knows how to read data from a launch monitor really well - I would think that he needs to play golf so that he has a sense of what its like but beyond that do you really think that anyone working on a tour players clubs has their playing capability? I've learned a lot since becoming a member of MGS over eight years ago. Much of it has been from our mid and high ha
  3. I started out hitting the ball pretty well, had good birdie looks on 1 and 2, beautiful drive on 3 and pulled 6 iron into a trap where I drew a crappy stance outside the bunker, ball in and below my feet - double. Another birdie look on 4 and finally broke through when I rolled one in from 15 feet on 5 - totally turned tge round around for me. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  4. Hadn’t played or touched a club in two weeks Very happy with 39-38 walking. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  5. Oh so boom I had two career drives today and its not as if the course suddenly dried out - it was wet - I hit a couple over 250 - had driver/9 iron on a hole that's 380 uphill - driver 6 or 7 iron sometimes 9 wood is the normal for me on that hole. The best was number 1 - it's 345 - I had 82 into the green - the tees were up a tad but we had it at 258 on the GPS. And I'm about to start on level 3 - did my first PT session last night - just resting from my round and getting ready for session 2.
  6. Not exactly because the shaft on your 6 iron will be longer than the shaft on the 7 iron and shaft length matters. All things being equal it will end up somewhere in between. I hit 12 greens in my round today and I hadn't touched a golf club in 2 weeks - wanted to go to the range yesterday after work but ended up working later than I intended and needed a nap to stay up for the World Series more than I needed to hit golf balls. Two birdies, several other chances, really liking these irons.
  7. Thanks as always for the outstanding care and concern - you’ve certainly made us feel like a part of the SuperSpeed community Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  8. Yellow always - I can't wait for the Fall to come to Florida - we had a week of it - summer has returned though - it's more like summer right now here than summer was - not quite as hot but afternoon showers every day this week - I use yellow because its the only color that I have a chance of seeing in the Florida sunshine. I realize its a different problem from many of you and especially Brian - nice to hear from you my friend. When I lived up North I always stuck with white - I would use my more experienced balls in the fall though given that there was alway
  9. So did my first training session this evening - found out I needed to charge the IPad and sensors last night. This will be very interesting -
  10. @hartrick I’m saving your fitting review to pull out for every time we get someone who Willy nilly claims that everyone should cut their driver down to 44.5 or whatever. As soon as you think about it you should just go get fit and see if it’s true. I’ve even seen that different head/shaft combos more get need a different length to be maximized,at least for me they may. I’ve loved reading about the fitting experiences. Thanks guys!

  11. That is totally consistent with what I found - I suspect its because irons in this category tend not to spin as much. Fortunately I've never been one to work the ball. Early on I decided that I wanted to play a draw and it's been that way ever since but as you've written it's a baby one with these irons. I've pretty much adjusted to it at this point. I'm going to the range this afternoon - weather permitting, there's a drill that my teacher gave me where I hit 3 quarter cuts, I haven't done that one with these, I will try it and see what happens - probably nothing but honestly I'm not grea
  12. Nice stuff I will say that I haven't found any sort of draw basis. My natural shot shape is a draw. These draw less than what I was gaming or anything that I've gamed in a while for that matter. As I wrote in my review I'm really not a guy who works the ball anyway so not being able to hit a fade would be irrelevant for me. My question to you would be doesn't the overall accuracy and distance benefit easily trump the inability to hit a 5 iron cut every other round? How much would you actually use if you just played for the center of the green or away from the pin on that
  13. I have a winter member who is a trainer in the Yankee Farm System - he brought their triple A strength coach to play with us last winter and he's a Titleist PT - Daisy who was the SuperSpeed liason for the first test group is a Titleist PT as well - I start my sessions this evening. Will let everyone know how they go
  14. About three years ago my health insurance provider allowed me to enroll in a fitness program where I lost 45 lbs. and more importantly kept over 40 of it off - I weigh what I did when I got married over 35 years ago. Now they have provided a free virtual PT service so I've signed up for it, too. I'm thinking this is the perfect way to enhance my SuperSpeed training. I really think that the things holding me back are declining flexibility due to age plus aches and pains carrying over from training sessions. PT should help in both areas. I met with my supervising trai
  15. Maybe I’m the only one or maybe everyone has moved to Players Distance irons off maybe a lot of guys just play the Players category and are content but the look of short irons transitioning to wedges has always been troubling to me if I’m using an iron set that allows me to hit 6 and 7 iron well. The D7 forged definitely fixes that so much so that I’ve gone from “Nuts, do I have to” from 100-125 to “Yes, I can’t wait to see the ball fly and land by the pin.” Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  16. I’ve got 12 clubs locked into my bag right now. Driver 5,7,9 wood 6-GW All set!!! 60 degree wedge - done What I’m struggling with is between the GW and 60 Currently I have 52,56 - the 56 is a waste of time - totally - So I’m thinking of either putting my 53 in or picking up a SCOR 54 and then adding something like a Sure out or CI 3 wedge. Im very inconsistent out of the sand - I could see having a club just for that. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  17. I didn’t practice yesterday - through wedge and putter in the trunk to chip and putt after work before a meeting - it was sunny most of the day, clear skies at night, only a 20 percent chance of rain. Guess what it did from 4-5? So I used that time to review Rapsodo launch angle data. An observation popped out - while the distance and accuracy of my irons click at a certain launch angle my longest drives are always when I launch it high - over 15 degrees with 17 being the ideal. Interesting Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  18. :) Is it a tight dispersion right? If so you could change the lie a few degrees. You may wish to go to a fitter and try your 7 iron and then both of your 8 irons to see what he thinks. I’m simply suggesting that the distance differences between the two sets of irons could’ve the shaft. Let us know how it goes and I will be interested to see what’s in the bag come March.

  19. @Matt So I have to ask the obvious - hues the dispersion with the D7 forged 8 iron? Given that you are in a different shaft maybe the 5.5 is the better fit for your swing than the 6.0? Just reminding you that there maybe more than one way to read the data and you should consider that possibility. Great review and thanks for being an awesome test partner Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  20. Bucs D was impressive Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  21. @Greg - very nice review - I notice that we had some very similar experiences with difficulties working shots and the hot face for shots around the green I’d like to hear more on the look of the D7 forged as opposed to the i200. I was surprised at some of the comparative pictures that you posted. The D7 appears to fare well. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy Thanks, you are most kind. You were the one who called this category the wave of the future for better Ams. I think you’re right Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  22. I will say that they are much more player ironesque than the C irons that I gamed. Smaller blade, thinner top line, less offset for certain. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
