  1. I was looking forward to this tournament but work has gotten in the way - also I’m supposed to play late afternoon tomorrow so I won’t be watching very much of it - too bad Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  2. I can’t even remember when I could so now when I tell it they were tomahawk dunks! [emoji56] Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  3. I had just picked up a set of D7’s and had them fit earlier this week. So for me this will be G30 v. D7 v. D7 forged. Just came from the range where I wore the 150 (153,from where I was) flag out with 7 iron. I’m anxious to have something with a smaller profile than those G30’s to look at. I’m also stoked about my testing team. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  4. There’s about to be a 4 in my age, too. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  5. I love the videos It’s very interesting that you are consistently 10 mph faster than I am across the board. Our handicaps are around the same - you might be a year or two younger than me though. :) Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  6. Do the dynamic warm up always - I’m using blue stick instead of read for my swings - I can do that warm up and drill it down the middle first swing - better than hitting balls. :) Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  7. Kevin sorry you were late to the party but the more Kevin’s here the better! Please stick around, participate and apply again and again until you hit. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  8. I am stunned and honored to be selected. Thanks Wilson - man I miss my A2000, best glove ever and MGS. Before you nerds start looking - baseball glove, saved up my paper route money to buy one sophomore year of high school. Then switched to catcher and the rest was history. I got to play baseball way longer than I should have because of that. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  9. What's your pitching wedge or does your set have pitching wedge, gap wedge - if so what's the gap wedge? How about that 3 wood? Why did it come out? When it was in did it cause more problems than it solved (that would be the case for many golfers). If you added a wood might a 4 wood or 5 wood (which any more really is a 4 wood) make more sense? Also do you use some sort of tracking system for your game? Sometimes what we perceive isn't what's actually going on. Not trying to be a pain. Those are exactly the questions that I constantly ask myself. The tracking system made it crystal clear in regards to what club I should chip with and what club (3 wood) needed to come out of the bag for good. I was all of 5 yards longer with it than 5 wood and I bet if I had something to track carry that I carry the 5 wood longer than a carry the 3 wood. I'm certainly way more consistent with it. Good luck and welcome
  10. Kevin/St Petersburg FL 4.6 Ping G30 Thanks to Wilson and MGS for the opportunity to apply Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  11. I'm in - had only reached out to undershooter as he was my last year's commish - will send him my email. Good luck everyone
  12. Everything he said except I only have three sets in the closet (because I've given two away.) A split set is a good idea and between 8 and 7 or 7 and 6 are the normal split point but everyone is different and every 15 is different. You might be a 15 with a stronger iron game than I have as a 4.6 - when you look at my handicap make up I'm around a 9 with my approach shots. I also have a shallow AOA so for that reason I need more GI and I make my split between PW and 9 iron or even sometimes between GW and PW. Ideally you'd get fit but at the very least you need to know your swing characteristics and your strengths or weaknesses if you are going to try and fit yourself. Good luck!
  13. Is the 54 your sand iron then? Do you go with the differing bounce on each - one high bounce the other low bounce? I've done that in the past - didn't worry about it after switching to the V soles but thought it was a good strategy when I employed it.
  14. Just curious, in light of the recent blog post from T, how many guys use a PW that is matched to their set and how many don't - it's not just the number of wedges but the type. Ironically I just put an extra wedge into my set but it's more to get my 60 back in and take the 3 wood out so that I'm not tempted to hit it. I've reclaimed enough yardage that 5 wood now goes 195-210 off the tee which was what I had 3 wood in for anyway. When I put the D7's in for a trial spin I will play with them for a couple of months at least (unless something goes radically wrong) and plan to use even the GW from that set - I hit all of my shots around the green with the 52 or the 58 - that will now be the 52 or the 60, unless I'm hitting a bump and run shot. Currently that is with 8 iron but we shall see once the new set is in.
  15. Fully agreed on all counts - my problem is that my game and the courses that I play it on don't allow me to get closer.
  16. Yes he does until you discover that you actually have very few “shots” between 100 and 30 yards during a round. Then his stuff is pointless. It takes a ton a practice time away from more commonly hit and thus important shots and often adds a useless club to the bag. If the data shows that you have a lots of shots per round in that range, that’s a different story. Assuming of course those shots aren’t to get up and down to save par or bogey in which case a person would need to invest more time with the tee ball. For my game wedges are all about pitching and chipping - I might have one or two full shots with them in a round. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  17. Well the Ping Eye 2 is pretty much a no brainer. Woods? Taylor Made Original One was kind of a game changer like those, I’d say. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  18. I love West Coast tournaments - prime time for me!!! Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  19. @tchat - just strengthen the grip and you’ll be fine. You’re doing way more right than wrong. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  20. Hit around 50 7 irons today after a working lunch at the club. Working on breaking in the D7’s. It went pretty well. Looking forward to getting the rest of them back from my repair guy so that I can give them a go. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  21. Thank you!!! As a follow up I’ve switched to the blue stick for the dynamic warm up. It seems to get me to a faster point right out of the gate. Thoughts there SuperSpeed? Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  22. I’m going Rahm Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  23. Left handed with the blue stick. I had to post it. I’ve been only doing maintenance sessions this summer due to heat indexes around 110 every day. I will get back to level 3 in earnest in September when it’s a it cooler in the evening at least. My swing speed and distance on course are holding up nicely, unlike last summer when I stopped training altogether Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  24. Good comparison I think. It’s also getting tougher to win and especially now. The fields are deep every week. They are about to get deeper, too. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
