  1. Yep The data crats have run the numbers and only Tiger or Jack in contention could boost Golf’s viewership. I know I would have canceled my range session thus afternoon had Tiger made the finals. Not now. All fine golfers and I do care about who wins. Just not enough to skip being outside for a few hours on an 80 degree day. Our bad weather is coming and we are running out of days like this one until late October.

  2. Alright I have a wedding in an hour so I’m done - Molina is a steam roller right now - great golf. @ Shankster I wouldn’t rule Rory out because he had one bad round in match play - unless they changed the rules for the Masters it’s 72 hole stroke play. You could struggle one day, get it in around par and still win that tournament. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  3. I thought Tiger made a huge tactical error putting on that par five with Rory at 3 feet. Now he has that miss in his head. We shall see I regards to Rory Tiger it’s a wonderful match but only Jack Tiger better? I can think of 20 plus match ups that would be better starting with Faldo/Seve. However among current players this one is pretty good - Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  4. I thought of this thread the entire time I approached the guy but he was going to kill somebody. For real - Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  5. Is it 10 yet? I will miss this afternoon because I have a wedding but I’m ready to watch some golf this morning. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  6. @joen it took me five weeks or so. That was a hard time to plough through. It was December which meant I was fighting darkness for many workouts, busier than normal at work and sick from mid month through Christmas (I actually did a workout on Christmas afternoon). Additionally, I regressed not on my SuperSpeed numbers which stayed flat but in my driving distance and then the last two workouts of level into the beginning of level three exploded. (I think the week after Christmas was when that happened). Right now my green club SS are a little off for some reason. Having written that my for real distance are off the charts. I’m still stunned at having 202 to a back pin on a 480 yard hole - according to GPS I hit my drive 278. We got paired with two guys and on the back nine they wanted to know how far my drives were going. I haven’t had that happen in a long time. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  7. Glad to hear that the up North contingent is starting to get out. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  8. So sorry chipperman Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  9. So now you get a 4th iron fitting. :) Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  10. Congrats guys - good luck with this one. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  11. I’m absolutely sure that my wife won’t. :( Driver still seems fine to me - it’s fairway wood to PW that are starting the act funky. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  12. @Bucky - there’s an additional factor here - you’re doing SuperSpeed which may have caused changes in swing speed and ball striking during the time that you were going for those fittings. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  13. I have tons of experience with V-soles on my wedges and I love them - extremely versatile, easily the most accurate wedges that I’ve had on full shots and great turf interaction. I’m a picker so my swing type prefers a thicker sole once I get to around an 8 iron (whatever that loft might be.) So in my bag I go extremely blade in my 60,56,52,48,44 to GI in the 9. Also I play in a wide variety of conditions throughout the course of the year including different types of grass (overseeded with rye in the winter some form of Bermuda in the summer) and different types of sand. I used to need two sets of wedges, a summer set with more bounce for the wet conditions. I can’t help with the Srixons, they look wonderful and we all know that they do well in MGS most wanted tests. Good luck Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  14. Rick, the round was at Mangrove Bay, the St Pete Muni. They do an amazing job on the course for the number of rounds it gets. Always top 10 in the country. However they were slow compared to my club and I never properly adjusted. :( Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  15. That’s my ball, on the green on a 480 yard par 5 in 2. My drive went 278. Hit 4 hybrid from 202 to a back pin right into the middle of the green. I had 4 career drives on a course that I’ve played hundreds of times the last twelve years. It was windy and dry for sure but I’ve played there when it was working body and dry before. Shot 41-37 - hit 11/14 fairways and 11 greens. Didn’t putt well at all - greens were bumpy and slow. Had a penalty stroke trying to hit a punch shot on the green after an errant lay up. Shot of the day was a 7 iron pitch out from the woods on a par 3 to 4 feet on 15. That one saved my round. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  16. Yes - Im more accurate. Better contact will equal better accuracy. In my initial driver SS test I averaged 88 mph on my Voice Caddy. On Tuesday I averaged 94 (after a full workout protocol so I was tired). That SS gain should have netted 15 yards 2.5 yards per mph of SS. However it netted 25 yards. That means that in this sample not only did my swing speed increase so did my swing efficiency. 600 pros are now using SuoerSpeed including LPGA world number 1, Phil and many many more. If you follow their protocols you will gain distance and swing efficiency. They also have tons of data that suggests that trying to swing as fast as you can will actually increase your distance and accuracy. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  17. Foz, so sorry to hear this - RIP. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  18. Amen! Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  19. Worked on my driving and also my short irons. Averaged 243 with driver which is 25 yards plus longer than before SuperSpeed. And dead straight yesterday 9/10 fairways out on the course (picked a hole and hit 10 drives) Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  20. It must feel good to be back out doing anything! Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  21. We all have experienced that dip for certain. Don't let it discourage you - it's like your body is getting reorganized during that time. You will also have times when you are faster with the blue (middle) club than the green or lefty than righty. It all comes out in the wash though. Stick with it even if your for real driver speed isn't quite there when you test. It will be at some point once you get off the plateau. @sirchunks, enjoy that driver!
  22. Another great group - I’m sure you will have a collective “grip” on the topic at hand. :) Seriously I always read grip tests closely even if I don’t comment. Looking forward to these. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  23. With the newbies on board here - welcome every one of you - I decided to take Voice Caddie, go out to the course, warm up, and hit some for real drives. This is just how I established my average driver speed at first using both the radar supplied by SuperSpeed golf and my Voice Caddie because I know it’s extremely accurate. Another words it will be within 1 mph of trackman nearly every time. Had a good warm up and off I went (did a workout earlier today BTW). Found a nice spot - number 7, par 4, flat landing area. Hit 10 drives, only two under 240 with a long of 248 according to Voice Caddy - actual yardages were about 15 yards longer on GPS when i picked up the balls because its dry and was down wind. My average VC driver swing speed was 88 when this started, carry distance 203, 216 total. 94.6, 224, 243 - that is right where I was at when I was a 1 between the ages of 50-55, before the heart issues and pneumonia. 21 yards of carry, 27 total yards, 6 mph SS which also means that my smash factor is improving. Oh and only one drive missed the fairway. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  24. Start from the green and work back - what part of the green will it be easiest for me to fit my shot into, where do I need to be in order to take that shot and how do I get there. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  25. This is what I do because right now it saves time. But I’m arguing that it’s possible for anyone of us to be fit into equipment from any OEM and that the specs will differ some based on the OEMs design preferences. (Understand that I’m not using the word arguing to mean “fighting”) In regards to irons, yes and no. Some OEMs attack mid to long iron difficulties with changing built in technology through the set where as others recommend a blended set. That is of interest here for me too. I might end up with the same iron 5-GW with Ping and two different irons in the same bag from a Mizuno to accomplish the same purpose, then that would require bending lifts to match gapping. It’s very interesting Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
