  1. I tried WRX with a similar experience - wasn’t worth it to me. However there is plenty enough good information there that I will visit the site at least once a week. It’s a different sort of relevance IMO. I’m happy it’s there - always important to have differing sources of information. Like Chisag I truly appreciate that we will share our differing opinions here and rarely shout them or attempt to cram them down people’s throat. You often learn the most from dissenting opinions. At least I do. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  2. Nice enough range session today - I came out Sunday and hit 4 straight greens - I had some issues later in the round though - I’m convinced it’s a lack of focus. I keep wanting it to be automatic - it’s not going to be - i have to learn that and focus Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  3. 7 wood [emoji33] You would have loved the 7 wood I hit from 190 over a pond yesterday - never in doubt - 4 iron or hybrid would have been a nightmare scenario for me. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  4. Sure it’s easy to have that attitude when you play 4 times a week like Sluggo. [emoji31][emoji56] Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  5. Always remember with Most Wanted Tests that they provide starting points - Every driver that was tested is the right driver for someone. The year's most wanted winner is the right driver for the greatest number of the test group. I replaced my G400 LST (last year's most wanted driver) with the G410 Max - I didn't have the same fitting options for the LST as the 410 Max so this one is a better fit and I have gained a bit of yardage. According to tru-fit the best fit for me among this year's drivers would be the Callaway Sub Zero but that's without any sort of fitting beyond tru-fit.
  6. Yes but this is all trivial compared to the fact that we have a local high school player on life support today - just waiting to have transplant teams available to harvest organs before they take him off. He collapsed at his game Friday night in what is being described as a non-football related brain injury. However mom's in the area will read football player died while playing football and it will be another nail in the coffin for a sport that has not been able to get ahead of its safety issues. I honestly think the Alabama/Clemson college domination is a sign of the end times for football - not enough good players to go around because parents are refusing to let their children play. The talent pool is shrinking quickly. And while this story has nothing to do with football per se, it's tragic. You wish that everyone could have an MRI before High School - that would have detected this issue although I don't know exactly what could have been done about it.
  7. This is so funny - I never switch putters - I had the same putter for 10 years before doing the EVNRoll test and have had the ER5 in my bag since then. For me it's never about putter - I put well enough - it's all about my ball striking, chipping and pitching. If I can get the ball close enough to the hole the putting takes care of itself.
  8. We have been in a beautiful weather pattern since the middle of last week. Breezy, warm, dry, much less humid. I averaged 5 yards longer off the tee than I have been all summer. No real rain in the forecast this week, either. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  9. I have one kicking around but it’s an R flex. Sorry Mr Gorilla. :) I am at a point where I don’t need any equipment - I would try those sub 70’s or Mizuno hot metals but honestly I hit my G30’s fine it’s just the look of the W to my SCOR 48 that I don’t like. If I take three wood out when the ground dries up a bit more, I still have my 60 and 56 in the closet. I’m far more comfortable with my equipment than with my swing at this point.

  10. Vodka on the 19th! Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  11. I agree that it was time for Jones to take over (although I thought they’d wait until game 5 and Tate’s return). I also agree that Eli has handled everything that’s come his way with class and dignity. Long forgotten is the Burris night club incident. That was the best team they had during Eli’s era and that stupidity cost them a shot at a 3rd Super Bowl. Incredible win yesterday - now we hold our breath on Barcley - get through the season and draft defense, defense, defense Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  12. 79 in a brutal cross wind yesterday afternoon - there was actually only one hole down wind all day - 190 yard par 3 over a pond with the pin up so the down wind hurt. [emoji34] Of interest they were doing some new sort of aeration while we were playing. The greens on the front nine had been done and they were on 10 so we skipped it and played two balls on 16. Of course I made bogey on both of those balls. :( This new method is a small punch through which air is then shot through the root system - the punches are tiny and were spread out by five or six feet - you hardly noticed them - the greens on that side were super firm and fast though. Had lots of trouble adjusting to the different speed on the non punched side. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  13. I play in a tournament where one of the holes is 8 inches - That’s when it looks bigger - :) And yes you can still miss Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  14. That is so cool! Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  15. It could even mean they don’t belong in your own bag or you need 4 of them. Does the love match the reality. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  16. This also leads to another interesting question or point - A guy who hits it 250 off the tee has vastly different needs from a guy who hits it 200. The 200 yards guy could cover 12 yard gaps down to 60 yards and still have a putter and wild card club to spare - he could easily carry a hybrid that covers the same distance as a lofted fairway wood or 5 iron only with a different trajectory or for different types of shots. Interesting thought for Tony to consider also. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  17. These are actually interesting points - but in the end you are fit for driver - its self fit to obtain your desired results but fit never the less -
  18. I don't think that average tour length is true anymore - I think that was the case 5 years ago - for example go through the Ping Tour Staff's driver length and you will see the average at about 45.25". It has come up over the past several years. Ultimately the proper thing to do is to be fit for length anyway - there are clearly players who benefit from a longer driver shaft and they aren't always whom you think they are. Additionally if you get fitted adjustments can be made to the driver head so that it plays to the proper swing weight. Just lopping an inch off of the shaft of a $500 club seems like a potentially costly proposition.
  19. Kevin St. Petersburg, FL Driver SS 95 Titleist Pro VIx Maxifli Tour X cg Thanks for the opportunity and good luck to all the applicants.
  20. Granata any thoughts on that shaft now that you’ve tried it for a bit? I was on the range yesterday with one of our pros - he’s in his early 70’s - played most of his career on the European Tour but did log a couple of seasons on the PGA. He’s had a ton of health issues but still hits balls and plays a few holes 3 or 4 days a week. He just put aerotech i80’s in his irons and loves them. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  21. It has been quiet of late - we seem to have these lulls every year. The season is ending, football has started, there’s not much going on testing wise. It picks up in late fall early winter as guys want to talk about the game they’re missing. Then it dies back down as cabin fever sets in and amps up once spring play and testing starts. I enjoy these early season tournaments but I’m busy at work this weekend (funeral today - tomorrow is obvious) and have been playing on Sunday afternoons because several very good area courses have specials that make them cheaper than playing at my club Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  22. I’d say find a way to check your gapping particularly your carry distance. You could easily have 3 clubs - hybrid, 9w and 5i - that carry the same distance. Given the configuration you’re showing us I’d say you either don’t need it or 9w. But we all hit the ball differently so it’s hard to say without more data and info on your game. In a perfect world I’d say everyone should carry a hybrid and a fairway wood because they perform a bit differently and hybrids perform well around the green. I’ve had to give up my hybrids because it turns out that I don’t carry them that well and tend to hook them. I’m much better with fairway wood. I’ve adapted around the green by working on hitting bump and runs with my 7 and 8 irons. I hope this helps Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  23. This was a great read so happy that I took a little time for it. Thanks! Kenny Green was a nice player BTW. Not great but capable of winning an occasional event 50-100 type guy. He was also a character. He was in a terrible accident of some sort a number of years back - lost the use of some of his limbs. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  24. @sixcat - The Master’s didn’t become a major organically - it was extremely contrived. Having written that I’m not an advocate of the Players as Major and agree that it feels like the Tour tried to cram that one down our throats. We disagree on Sawgrass that’s established so no sense to rehash old debates. The fact remains that Sawgrass is generally highly rated and that as both courses are currently constituted it allows for a far greater group of potential winners than Augusta which is both a course and the host of a tournament designed to favor a certain player type - long, highly rated, high ball hitter. Only an act of God (cold and windy weather) changes that. I agree that in Jones’ day there was not an emphasis on what we think of as majors. In fact in Jones’ day it wasn’t a big deal to be a pro. Once the Masters became known as a Major in the mid 30’s though the four have been locked in. Both the Open and the PGA have had struggling moments but each has prevailed. The Westerns (Open and Amateur) have storied histories. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
