  1. Name: Donald D- Orlando Current Raingear: None- I actually don't wear pants. I do have a little fuzz on my tail, but that's more for directional control than warmth Worst rain I've ever played in: I don't really golf in the rain, but do spend a lot of time in ponds. I really just want these to keep my buns warm Sent from my Pixel 3 using MyGolfSpy mobile app

    Kuchar is embarrassingly cheap

    I think Kuchar could still win. All he has to say is "there's been a lot of talk about this and in hindsight maybe I was wrong. The guy did the job so he deserves his split of the winnings. I've sent it to him and I hope to make more sympathetic decisions in the future." Would that be so hard? Sent from my Pixel 3 using MyGolfSpy mobile app

    Kuchar is embarrassingly cheap

    Kuchar didn't exactly help his cause with his comments. The extra money coming from his agency as damage control, the "let them eat cake" quote about $5k being a lot of money for a guy who makes $200 a day. https://www.golf.com/news/2019/02/14/matt-kuchar-caddie-pay-controversy/ Sent from my Pixel 3 using MyGolfSpy mobile app

    Kuchar is embarrassingly cheap

    Man people have strong opinions on this one! I look at it from the standpoint of "if it was me, what do I hope my kids (or anyone else's kids) would see me do". I understand that they had a prior agreement and Kuchar didn't do anything wrong, but I wish he would have answered it by saying "yes, we had an arrangement and no, he doesn't do everything my full time caddy would do, but still he helped my win a million bucks. So I took the full fee for the win and gave half to the local caddy and the other half to my full timer, even though he couldn't be there. Both those guys had a hand in this win." That would have been the feel-good story of the year! Sent from my Pixel 3 using MyGolfSpy mobile app

    P790 lofts

    You had them bent from 30.5 to 34?? A move that big I would say yes there's a very real chance that the playing characteristics have changed. Not only the bounce but the lie angles may have shifted in a bend that aggressive. Honestly I'm amazed that anyone would bend them that much and am concerned that the warranty may have been voided by this. Did you bend the entire set this much?

    Pebble Beach Pro-Am

    I got to play there the first week of December and I was amazed that they were already growing the rough up and moving it in toward the middle in several places (notably from the left on 8 and 9 forcing you closer to the cliffs). I asked the caddies if it was for the AT&T and they said no it's for the Open! It's going to play easy this week because will be soft but it will be a nightmarish Open setup.

  7. Club Pro Guy is a satire account, so these photos are purposely exaggerated. He's kidding Sent from my Pixel 3 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  8. I think a lot of players really don't see an alternative to just playing with what they have. One of the reasons is getting a qualified teacher (much like a fitter) that can actually help you is easier said than done. Once you get beyond the basics of grip, stance, setup and general motion it gets harder and harder to address weaknesses and shave strokes.

    2019 Callaway Apex Hybrid Thread

    Love the flatter lie angles for the hybrid. Not sure if I love it $269 but it's a welcome feature. Sent from my Pixel 3 using MyGolfSpy mobile app

    Bunker Shots

    So you need a high bounce sand wedge for a few weeks each year? Sent from my Pixel 3 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  12. Where I found it makes a difference so far is when a couple of players are on the green but well back from the hole and 1 or more are still off the green. Now the guys on can go ahead if they want and putt up to the hole while the other guys are still walking to their ball or thinking about their chip shot. Saw that happen on almost every hole with a group split on in or out. Overall it sped up play for the day Sent from my Pixel 3 using MyGolfSpy mobile app

    Srixon Z Forged

    I'm definitely more of a sweeper, and I really struggled with the 5 series 4 and 5 iron. In fact I went back to my 945 series long irons as they felt easier to hit to me. I know, I'm backwards[emoji849] Sent from my Pixel 3 using MyGolfSpy mobile app

    Srixon Z Forged

    One of the things I'm curious about is how much the sole grind changes as a player moves through their club offering from 585- through the 7 series to the blades. I had a 565-765 combo last year and the sole interaction seemed drastically different to me. I think that one of the stronger arguments in favor of more blade-like iron sets is if the sole is a good match for your attack angle Sent from my Pixel 3 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
