  1. Amen. That's why I love this site so much. Its funny, Ive mentioned MGS on other forums and people always get salty about it, especially the ball test. I even had someone on another site tell me that MGS' golf ball test was flawed and that, "soft is slow" is wrong. I had to tell him that I found that very hard to believe.
  2. I do from time to time. Its fun to break out the persimmons and the blades. IMO, the persimmons don't work as well with today's golf balls because they don't spin enough but they still work.
  3. I hate to break this to you but ALL modern putters give you less loss of distance on off-center hits. Some do it with MOI. some do it with variable groove depth; as Im sure Evenroll does. I personally question how much any of that supposed new and better tech actually does. IMO, its much more hype and marketing than it is actual substance and truth.

    Titleist Tour Soft

    Im sure its a good ball. Its a Titleist, afterall. My only thing is, much like other companies do, they try to tell you that you can have a cheap ball with a soft feel that still gives you distance and spin around the greens. Its just simply not true. They all do it though, its not just Titleist. I just wish that they would have truth in advertising.
  5. I find it interesting how they claim that a softer core gives you MORE distance. It would seem that the MGS ball test proved that to be incorrect. I love Srixon but I wish they would stop trying to make false claims just to sell us softer golf balls.
  6. Right but PWs used to be 49 degrees, which is the point you're missing. You're telling me that high handicappers today deloft but they didn't 50 years ago?It seems to me like you're trying to use the facts that support your argument and ignoring the rest. As to the argument about all these different kind of irons, again, marketing. Everyone claims to have a magic club that can improve your game but there's no magic in the club. The magic is in the person swinging the club. Always has been. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  7. That might be valid if it were only true on GI irons but the lofts on all irons have gotten stronger over the years. Disagreeing with your point doesn't mean people aren't listening or being stubborn, we simply disagree with you. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  8. Ive said it before and I'll say it again: jacked lofts are much, much more about distance and selling iron sets than it is about helping anyone play better. Distance sells and when you can hit the 9-iron in your new set while all your buddies hit their 8-irons with the older irons, that sells. People can talk about CGs and greater ball speeds neccecitation lower lofts and blah, blah, blah but its really all about distance.
  9. Id say its probably more of a Titleist issue than a GG issue. The one here in Columbus has been out of Pro Vs lately but they have everything else. Like someone else said, the global supply chain has taken a huge hit during COVID as companies that manufacture have had to implement lots of social distancing policies that have hurt their production. I work for Honda here in Ohio on the factory floor and its a whole new world out there. Another thing to remember with Titleist is that a signifigant portion of their Pro V1 production in Thailand and that their US ball plants were shut down for a while and as of June I don't think they had reopened yet, so Im sure theyre waaaaay behind on their yearly production. Perhaps now is a great time if youre a Titleist ball loyalist to learn that theres just as many other balls out there that are just as good and maybe you don't really need to spend $50+ for a dozen golf balls. Just sayin'.
  10. That's why many putting fittings use height and wrist to floor measurement. I still don't think that makes a perfect recommendation because some people use a more modern putting style that is more upright and others use a more classic style of being more bent over. IMO, anther thing that often gets overlooked with putter length is how it can change your eye line. If your putter is too short, it can cause you to stand on top of the ball too much and move your eye line outside of the ball, causing you to miss your putts to the left. If its too long, it can move your eye line inside of the ball, making you miss your putts to the right. I found when I played 35" that I always missed to the right and when I went 33" I always missed to the left but 34" seems to be the sweet spot for me.
  11. I think the pricing is fine, they're just blah looking. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  12. Don't forget about Sketchers. They offer extra wide too. I used to have a pair of Sketchers golf shoes and they were nice and comfy (and I wear extra wide shoes). They just all look like dad shoes.
  13. Id go with a set PW because modern PWs are really more of a 10 iron than they are an actua pitching wedge in the way that they are swung and played. I also have never understood the logic of why you need your PW to match the rest of your wedges. I also sure as heck would not be spending $150 on a Vokey as my PW. Why tack on another $150 when the set PW will work just fine?
  14. Yes, sir. The champagne of beers since 1903. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
