  1. Beals Outlet on senior discount day is the bomb. Got three pairs of dress paints, a pair of jeans and two pairs of shorts for a song there. Picked up two pairs of shorts and some shirts at my club on year end close outs and found clerical collars really cheap on line. I threw the old clothes away as an incentive to keep the weight off.

  2. I got it thanks but next issue up was when I got to the course and turned on the satellite thingy it kept telling me there were no courses within 1kilometer. I was standing on the first tee of one of the courses at a 36 hole facility. Tried turning it on and off and got the same result. :( Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  3. Played the blues at Bayou today 73.7/140 and shot 43-40 with a snowman on 4. Sounds bad but 6600 yards at sea level fairly wet and windy conditions I held my own except for that one hole. For the guys here who’ve played it imagine playing 16 at 203 over the Bayou. Hit it just off the green left - It really wasn’t bad - that quad stinks but other than that I held my own - should have pitched out with an 8 iron and would have had a shot at breaking 80 from there. Not bad for an old fart. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  4. Well I wanted to use mine for the first time yesterday but couldn’t get it to sync with the phone. I couldn’t even figure out how to use the GPS options Advice on the sync up? I will figure out the on course use of the band NP. I was rushed last night. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  5. We shouldn’t loose sight of the fact that SuperSpeed has been great through this process. For example their little post a week or so ago about how to maintain during the season was huge. I was really struggling with what to do between play and work. Work will slow after next week and having done maintenance the past few weeks I’ll jump back in where I left off.

  6. I worked the PGA at Whistling a number of years back. It also included rounds of golf at Blackwolf run. There was a cost associated for the uniform and training sessions. Well worth it and I’m sure the Ryder Cup will be even more so. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  7. Great round chisag! Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  8. Why did you aim it OB though? :) Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  9. Several to choose from in a competitive 77 but I’m going with the 7 iron on 9 into the breeze from 151 to 5 feet. Stabbed at the putt and made par but man was that a beautiful iron shot - right through the sea breeze. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  10. Had 77 in league this afternoon - quite the contrast from last week and on a tougher course - go figure. Waiting on whether I won a skin and a closest to the pin. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  11. Legends in our own minds. :) You sounded great Bucky. I did not have a career drive in league play tonight but I had the next best thing, 3 7 irons from 160 plus that left me in birdie range. Those would have been 5 hybrids last year. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  12. I have a bone to pick with you chunks - getting new clubs is a like a new wardrobe when you loose weight? I lost weight, it cost me $250 to replace my dress clothes. Those are the two fittings towards new clubs.
  13. Have a great time! Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  14. Wow - so sorry about the cyst removal complications. My wife has cyst issues and passed those to our son. He had to have cysts removed twice after lengthy sea deployments - imagine trying to sleep on a rack on a sub with one. Ughh - at any rate I feel for you man! To your question, there’s the perfect and there’s reality. The reality is with a busy schedule you will do workouts on days that you play/practice good. If I’m playing on a SuperSpeed day I try to keep that workout as far away from my round as possible. If I’m practicing I do the protocol first as a part of my practice. It’s worked well for me.

  15. You’ve got to hang in there - bumps come when they are least expected. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  16. Absolutely - Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  17. Nice bag!!! Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  18. Welcome to the group! I concur that you should do the protocols per SuperSpeed’s site. There will be more individualization as you get into later protocols - some choices based on your specific swing tendencies. If I recall it that happens at Week 20. Many of us have seen jumps rather than a steady increase. Those jumps have come at different times depending upon the person. As a heads up we’ve also experienced plateaus that have in some cases included a slight speed loss followed by a jump. Good luck! Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  19. 4.5 is the equivalent of most other people’s R. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  20. Their set ups tend to be a bit more benign - more like really good conditions that we see. She hit one 340 this weekend. And for the guys who are constantly advocating a shorter shaft her driver is 48”. She does grip down significantly though. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  21. Who would even begin to think that? Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  22. So I was thinking this could have been the first week that the PGA tour winner was a shorter hitter than the LPGA winner. It’s close but not quite Pan is at 285 and Brooke at 280 avg. driving distance. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  23. Just me and the Eagles on the range today. Golf is such a stupid game. When I played last I couldn’t do a thing right and was ready to quit. I had no time to touch a club the rest of the week although I did a SuperSpeed workout on Saturday. I had a few too many cocktails last night. Slept in this morning and hit the range at 1230. Hit balls for two hours. My worst misshit during that time was better than my best shot last Tuesday. My driver was long, straight just a hint of draw. I was all over a flag that was 137 away with 9 iron. Averaged 161 on 10 7 irons, 190 with 4 hybrid and could adeptly alternate between a flag at 87 and another at 52 with either my 56 or 60 or switching between the two in the middle of the sequence. For yucks I went in the bunker and felt as if I could hole any shot I wanted (I didn’t but I was getting them inside of 10 feet). Golf is a stupid game. Best wishes to Carl and Rick on your recoveries! Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  24. I actually did a second tru fit - when I bumped my clubhead speed 1 mph from 93 to 94 I got a totally different set of drivers - the Taylor Made M6 and M5. So we’ll see. I’m also thinking getting the adjustability down just right might minimize some of those heal hits that plague me at times. I’m psyched - also anxious to have short irons that feel like my wedges.

  25. I’m sure your teacher moved you to the interlock in the 70’s because that’s what Nicklaus used. It matters but it doesn’t. Another words there are 3 types of grips that are tried and tested. Interlock, overlap and 10 finger. Each has its merits. Most important is that your palms face one another. The overlap is far and away the most popular or common of the 3. But that doesn’t make it the right one for you or anyone else here necessarily Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
