  1. Three things come to mind: 1. I use my regular grip when making super speed swings and try to replicate my righty grip, lefty. (The exception is for the recoil swings from ASD 2 but you aren’t there yet so no worries) 2. I try to visualize hitting the ball when making super speed swings of all types and I also try to visualize its flight off that swing. Daisy Suggested this to me and it’s very helpful. Conversely I try to visualize my super speed swings when hitting regular shots. 3. It may be time to take a lesson to help with your driving accuracy. Good luck! Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  2. Protein, fruits, veggies with some healthy carbs. Just be moderate, exercise some and you’re fine. If you’re going to cheat, plan for it and do it with no regrets. You just hop right back on the healthy train with your next meal. I’ve been 165 since October. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  3. First league round of the season this evening - shot 39 - tied my match. Made a nice birdie but buggered a par 5 and made double. Overall a good round - had a career drive on one hole so SuperSpeed struck again - I was giving the guy that tied me 8 pops - Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  4. I really like this - I’m holding steady at 165 after taking 9 months to loose the 45 lbs that got me there. The first two months I lost 15 lbs. The loss slowed after that. I’m still in the process of reshaping my body even if I’m not loosing weight. I find that I need goals to keep the weight off and also experiment with what I can and can’t eat. It’s a rest of my life process but I’m very happy with where I’m at. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  5. Tier 5 - Zach Johnson Winning Score -12 Wow - great contest - thank you Wilson and MGS! Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  6. At first blush I liked the chart as a guideline but the more I think about it the less I like it. If people who apply for tests on this site are truthful about their driver swing speeds there are oodles and oodles of players who swing a 5 iron at 95 mph and yet have no business playing from 7,000 yards - none, zero, zip. Also his LPGA number is way, way off. They hit their 5 irons well longer than 160 - closer to 180 and they have no trouble playing from 6,660 plus - In fact we've seen a number of LPGA players play in PGA events and while no one has made the cut - let enough of them play in enough events and some one eventually will - they have shot under par and Brittany shot in the 60's last season from over 7,000 yards. Off the soap box, I see this chart as a prescription for slow play - just play the tees that allow you to have fun - use your common sense - if a course has long par 3's - either blend the tees (play the longer set on all the holes except the par 3's) or if you are concerned about keeping a handicap move up a set - We should all know by now that different course conditions make holes and courses play longer or shorter and adjust accordingly - I don't get why courses haven't adjusted for this but since they don't seem to we need to make those adjustments ourselves. Generally that means playing a course from a shorter set of tees. When you're breaking par all the time and the game gets boring? That's when it's time to move back a set.
  7. What can you say about Kisner? Making it to the championship round in this event in consecutive years is a remarkable accomplishment- I got some of it driving to and from the range and then at halftime and during time outs of the Duke LOSS. Did I mention that Duke LOST in that narrative? Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  8. 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.

  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. @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
  14. Glad to hear that the up North contingent is starting to get out. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  15. So sorry chipperman Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  16. So now you get a 4th iron fitting. :) Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  17. Congrats guys - good luck with this one. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  18. 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
  19. @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
  20. 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
  21. 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
  22. 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
  23. 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
