  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. 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.

  4. 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

  6. So I’m doing the maintenance step last week and this as SuperSpeed suggested. Hit 119 with the blue club which is a record for me. That means I have the potential to get to 123 or 124 with the green right now - 121 is my peak with that one. Driver fitting Thursday - looking forward to that. Talking Irons with Jason from sub 70 in a bit. Strong possibility that I will order those. I’m not at all convinced that I need a different driver - could just need a tweak to the current one. Putter through wedges will stay the same - do need to address the top part of the bag though. But that’s for later. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

  8. Sorry about this! I’m fortunate enough to live in an area that has a couple of local options that blow anything Golf Now does out of the water. I do Paradise golf. The winter one was under 200 and included a free round at Innisbrook and another very good local resort. Those two alone covered the cost. In the summer I can play places like TPC Tampa Bay for under $50. I hope you find some more deals on the Pass as time goes on. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  9. To me it appeared that the ball was holed according to the rule. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  10. I actually had the DG 105 in my old Adams idea Pro irons as I was transitioning from steel to graphite - they were a nice shaft - I’d characterize them is medium high launch but all of that is subjective. A 7 iron swing speed in the 71-74 range would indicate an R flex shaft - mine’s in the high 70’s and I’m in R flex. Plus the results beat that out. Could the “whipy” feel be in your head? I’d be reluctant to go away from a fitting result that was a good fitting. I hope that helps Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  11. @Dave and Stroker True that's why I always check to make sure the flag is securely in the hole when I'm putting or chipping with it in. And if the wind is blowing that hard all bets are off - I should have to ask to have it tended but being a guy I'll just take it out then because no way I'm asking for help (as I wrote in an earlier post.)
  12. That's a Hall of Fame career right there and it illustrates my point perfectly. No one has come close to doing this before after the age of 40. But of course people who are the greatest or close to the greatest do things that no one has ever done before so again if anyone is going to do this it's Tiger. I believe Jack is the only one to have won three majors after the age of 40 and he had a top 10 in the Masters after the age of 50. This is a great Major year for Tiger with Bethpage and Pebble up next. I think he's pretty comfortable at those places.
  13. I don't know how old you are but I'm guessing late 20's, early 30's so you don't remember Michael Jordan or Wayne Gretzke. I love your post! I saw Jack and he was my man as a kid/young adult so that's why my preference remains with him. I do wish he would keep his mouth shut about the ball. He may think golf has become too easy but I certainly don't. It seems to get harder and harder the older that I get. Tiger is great, what he has done is incredible. It will be tough to hammer out those last three or four - think about it - three or four more majors is going to mean 5 to 8 more regular tour events or a Hall of Fame career all by itself all after the age of 42. If there's anyone who could do that it is him.
  14. Back at Dave - but we're guys, how many of us are ever going to ask another guy for help by having them attend the flag? Next thing you know you're going to be telling me to stop at the gas station to ask for directions. Does anyone remember when Seve used to have the flag attended for 10 footers?
  15. I agree with what you have to write but haven’t made myself clear on the 30 footers. I think the optics of the flag in will lead to a closer proximity to the hole not because the ball hits the pin but because the human putter has a better sense of distance. I’d love to see a test done on that. I read the Profs narrative. Based on what he says his data found it’s preposterous to say that the flag out benefits 99 percent of the time or even a majority of the time. I think there are rare occasions where the flag out would benefit - since those are rare and unpredictable I will leave it in. Sorry that I missed Adam’s response - thanks to everyone for providing links. I appreciate reorganizing the threads but it has caused me to loose track of some of them. That’s a me thing not a MGS thing. :) Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  16. My handicap comes from rounds played in two leagues and at my club where scores are closely monitored. So big brother is always watching. In fact in one of my leagues big brother is playing with me. Our handicap committee chair is my B player. I can’t believe the grief he takes. It’s comical actually. Too many guys fail to understand that their handicap index reflex their potential and not what they usually shoot. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  17. I’m surprised that there’s not or else I’ve missed a thread commenting on the Golf Digest article claiming to have data that suggests we should always leave the flag stick in. This article contradicts findings from MGS and Dave Pelz. Honestly in reading the article I thought there were times where the author reached conclusions that weren’t supported by his data. What he did that I liked was attempt to test proximity to the hole based on in/out. He claimed that this test was inconclusive. I’d have liked to have seen the data. I’d also like to have someone whom I trust - MGS or Pelz do a study with real golfers on flag in or out proximity to the hole on 30 footers. I also wish that the MGS team would comment on that study from Golf Digest. I’m still going flag in but it has caused lots of people who might to refuse to leave it in thus defeating the USGA’s purpose for establishing the rule in the first place. Increased pace of play.

  19. Welcome back!!!! Have you started swinging a club again yet? So rooting for you. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

  21. It was a day. Started with a funeral where I met up with the two tall young ladies, sisters who graduated from our school. Neither played hoops or Golf BTW. Got back to church in time for the service. First Communion for 12 kids. We do first Communion in Sixth Grade. Sixth graders are 12, I’ve been at Grace 12 and a half years which means, yes I baptized nine of the 12 and held any number of them as babies in the nursery. It was a day.

    Sub70 golf

    I think I like the first option - on paper at least - but it’s given me another thought also. I’m going to call this afternoon about doing a demo so that I can see and touch these babies for myself. Thanks Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

    Sub70 golf

    I was going to call Sub 70 but thought I’d ask here I stead as others might be interested. Any thoughts on how the 739’s and the 639’s might fit together? I’d envision PW-8 with the 639’s and 7-5 with the 739. I’m an older moderate swing speed shallow swinger (picker) who still has a single digit handicap. But I need the bigger platform in those middle irons. I currently game Ping G 30’s. Love them from 7 iron up - can’t stand the 9 iron and wedge - oh do I dislike the look of them and the lack of feel and difficulty in control the trajectory. Thoughts on how to make that combo work?
