  1. I always love the one word posts on this thread. They speak volumes. :) Next weekend is a new round. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  2. Nicklaus went birdie, par, eagle, birdie, birdie, par in 86 to win. So it has happened but it was really fun golf to watch. Several of the holes played the distances that they used to play them back in the wooden/balata era - 13 was always 465 back in that day.
  3. Shot 38-38 76 very happy with that and there’s still plenty of room for improvement Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  4. 16 at my club separates the men from the boys. Go right and you have a relatively benign shot of 150 to a large 2 tiered green - bogey is still possible but double or other is out of the equation unless you really skank one. Go to the bridge side and you have what you see in the second picture 160-210 over that. We went left - 162 to the front pin which meant 155 yard carry over the junk - you can barely see the front of the green over it, hit 6 iron saw it land just by the pin, went to the tier and rolled back to 10 feet behind the pin. Shot of the day, birdied 17, 3 putt bogey on 18 but no harm 38-38 76 from a set of tees that’s 73.8, 137 slope. I’m continuing the come back. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

    Congrats Shankster, lots of good ones in there, too. You and Kenny will pass me up for leading poster in no time. As always thank you for your service, Petty Officer. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  7. Neither do I, Kenny. I would assume using 5 hybrid in our case to figure out proper course yardage. Regardless the chart is a prescription for 5 hour rounds. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  8. I looked it up - average lpga 5 iron carry is 161. However that is going to net low 170’s. Average driver carry is 218 and the average total driving distance is 243. If the measured hole is one with little roll the 220’s make sense. Back on topic I’m not a fan of the chart. I don’t think it works on any level. It would lead to more of what we already have - guys playing a set of tees that’s too long for their skill level. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  9. Awesome story! I thought it was a great tournament to watch. The course produced the same back nine excitement for these young women as it does for the big boys. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  10. They would send it to you for sure Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  11. Oh sorry - I should have checked your signature - I'm that way with my SCORs - I'd just hunt ebay before I would have them bent
  12. They haven't been released yet new - our test group was a test group for them.
  13. Yes it would be out of my reach but there would be a market for it. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  14. Thanks And for the record there is absolutely no risk of me moving a 4 iron tag - ever (haven't gamed a 4 iron in over a decade)
  15. I find this concept fascinating. I’m wondering if OEMs will soon start individualizing drivers for their pros based on collected data and then making the same opportunity available to the public for a premium of course. Of course current drivers are finely tuned to players but I’m talking.a head designed by the computer for just that players swing tendencies. Thoughts? Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  16. Mine will arrive Monday and I have a question. Have any of you gotten new clubs since you started using Shot Scope and if so how difficult was it to change the tags over from the old set to the new one? I’m planning to change irons at some point this summer and perhaps driver too. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  17. I did in fact make the comparison between the radar and my voice Caddy at the very start of testing. I’ve compared Voice Caddy to my fitters trackman and it’s inside of 1 mph so pretty close. I dropped the Voice Caddy comparisons to avoid confusion. Bottom line for me the Voice Caddy registers 3-4 miles per hour slower than the radar. But I’ve gained close to 10 mph on it too - 88 when we started 95-100 now depending on the day and time of the day and whether I’m hitting range balls or on the course with my gamers. I think all of us experienced more SuperSpeed gains than you did in level 1 but who cares so long as you’re seeing the actual driver speed gains? That’s the program’s goal. So you are certainly achieving it. I’m done with kneeling - thank the Lord. On to the next level for me!!! Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  18. Could you strengthen the 50? I’m assuming you don’t use that one as your sand iron so a little loss of bounce should go un-noticed. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  19. Yep - most swing flaws start with an issue with the basics, grip, stance, posture, alignment, ball position. Totally agree Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  20. First off - welcome to MGS. There’s a proper length for driver shaft fo everyone. The old adage of being more consistent with a shorter shaft does not fly anymore. Most modern drivers are designed to play with a shaft that’s between 45 and 45.5 inches. In fact if you look at what touring pros are gaming on the OEM websites you will see most at above 45 inches. All of this is a fancy way of saying it would behoove you to get fit for shaft length before cutting that new shaft down or having it cut. I’ve made about any and every mistake a golfer could make with his equipment including going through a let’s cut down the shaft phase. :) Good luck Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  21. And it’s four or five skins - think about that - if you win 5 additional skins this season you’ve paid for the thing!!! That’s my story and I’m sticking to it. :) Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  22. Holy cow - 145 is a big number! Yikes Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  23. Happy birthday guys! Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  24. Enjoy - glad many of you are getting back out. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  25. I haven’t been following the tweets but will. I have repeatedly played the mantra of pick one ball, any ball and play it and it only during the season. While I still believe all balls are good as in consistent, I also believe all balls are different. It looks like I’m going to be proven right for once. :) Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
