  1. My club does the same sort of thing and then the GM will swear up and down it's all a break even. I'm like, uh my phone has a calculator. Sent from my Pixel 3 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  2. First Name/State or Country- Chris/ Indiana Handicap 1.1 Have you ever used a putting training device before - I used those Butch Harmon aiming glasses back in the day. They made me nauseous Sent from my Pixel 3 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  3. I haven't found them to be low spin at all, but I only have my own 785 set and have not done head to head vs other sets. I think they hold well though the wind but have not noticed any issue with stopping power whatsoever. I could see the 5 series being a little hotter than 919 forged, but I think the 7 is a more direct comp to that particular Mizzy Sent from my Pixel 3 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  4. Fwiw it looks as if you're out over your toes quite a bit, which can definitely make it more difficult to turn much in the backswing. I'd like to see you sitting down a touch more at address with weight more toward the heels Sent from my Pixel 3 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  5. I'm going to treat this question seriously just in case the OP is not simply trolling (though I believe he is). Golf requires gazelle-like strength, not elephantine brute force and has similarities to many other athletic endeavors. NHL hockey players, NFL kickers, ballet dancers, soccer players, javelin throwers, tennis players etc all use some form of coil, post and release that we see in top level golf swings. None of them look like power lifters. In face large muscle mass without speed through the kinetic chain is less athletic and less useful than the golf swing. Good for moving refrigerators and grunting at a mirror at the gym. No good for moving like an athlete. Sent from my Pixel 3 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  6. Be careful with your thought process as it relates to home course. Knowing a course well can have its own pitfalls if you tend to get ahead of yourself thinking about score, or if you dwell too much on what you should've done or normally do. In competition the goal is to play the shot in front of you and then move on to the next one Sent from my Pixel 3 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  7. First tournament round since last season. I was first off at 8 am and it was 42 degrees and breezy. I hung in there most of the day but made a 9 on a very easy par 5 with two balls in the water and a 3 putt. A couple shots thrown away after that added up to a dispirited 78.

  8. How much are you looking to trim off it? If you're butt trimming from 46-45" I wouldn't worry about it too much. It should play a trifle stiffer but will probably be hard to quantify much performance change. I suspect as driver shafts have gotten longer the OEMs are just cutting them longer rather than reengineering to the new longer length. You should gain a bit more control and may actually hit it longer if you hit the shorter length more solidly. Sent from my Pixel 3 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  9. I'm a big Rush fan so obviously biased. But I offer that Rush's style constantly evolved because they were always growing and changing as musicians. They said many times they could have made another Moving Pictures, but why? They had already done that and wanted to explore the next idea. I didn't love all of their early concept work, and I didn't necessarily love the synth phase, but looking back I appreciate that they were always willing to pursue what they were interested in. That's the opposite of selling out imo Sent from my Pixel 3 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  10. A player with sound technique will be able to adapt to the equipment. A weaker player really needs to be in equipment that does what it can to help correct his faults. So I guess my answer is the better you are, the less the arrow matters. Sent from my Pixel 3 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  11. So if it's hooking then you know one thing for sure- the face is closed to the path at impact. Whether that's because the face is pretty neutral and the path is way too much inside out, or because the path is fairly neutral and the face is shut is what you need to figure out. But at least knowing that first part helps you on the road to discovery Sent from my Pixel 3 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  12. In team events the USGA recommends that players only receive 80% of their handicap for this very reason. As handicaps climb the amount of outlier scores two very high handicap partners are capable of shooting increases dramatically. 80% of 1 is still a 1 but a 25 loses 5 strokes in that scenario. Another commonly used option is a team max handicap, usually 36 or 40. Sent from my Pixel 3 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  13. Remember Anthony Kim? That dude was halfway to the steel w everything Sent from my Pixel 3 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  14. I know there are probably a lot of things causing this position, but if you could get to where your left arm was in line with your right shoulder more at the top it would have to make it easier to get back to impact from there Sent from my Pixel 3 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  15. I'll chime in, absolutely play the Island Club your last day there and stay in Malahide. It's very close to the Dublin airport and a thrilling topsy-turvy gorse covered links. Also Ardglass is on my list for that side of the country. European Club to the south in Wicklow is amazing. Portmarnock Old didn't do much for me tbh. Sent from my Pixel 3 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
