  1. Haven't hit Edel wedges but could be a shaft type and/or flex difference? Are the shafts different in the TM MGs? Sent from my SM-N920V using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  2. It analyzes all aspects of you putting stroke. See link below... Two things I got out of mine, my club head rotated quite a bit but I was fairly consistent in getting it back to the same spot. That said, I did try working on reducing how much I opened and closed the club head on my stroke. I figured in the long run that would make me more consistent. I didn't take any follow-up lessons with the pro who did my assessment so I didn't get everything out of it that I could have. Got a lot more out of my Edel putter fitting http://www.scienceandmotion.com/puttlab/
  3. Not with 4 clubs but with 8 or 9 and really enjoyed it. Bought and SKB hard case designed to carry 8 to 9 clubs. Case looks like a rifle case and just seems easier to deal with when traveling for work. A lot of times I carry 4 or 5 clubs as I know I will be lucky juat to get to the range but recently I knew there was a 50/50 chance I would get 1 day off on a 10 day trip and sure enough got to play 18 which I did from 6200 yards. Had a blast creating shots... Sent from my SM-N920V using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  4. Depending on how far south you want to go but I loved the Challenge Course at Monarch Dunes in Nipomo. Its a 12 hole Par 36 course next to the main course. Ranch San Marcos was a good track that has recovered nicely from the worst of the drought. BTW, going to Nipomo from SLO is worth it just to eat at Jocko's, the golf is just a bonus.

  5. Mid capper here that normally plays, at sea level, in the 6100 yard range but I am comfortable up to 6300 plus. I start to feel stretched at 6500. I will occasionally play at 6500 when I'm on a good driving run but it's rare and done to test game. My total driver distance averages around 250. I have played with lots of people who play one or two sets of tees behind me and don't make up the difference between the tee blocks and don't score either. Like others, will move up a set of tees if entire group is playing from there but rarely move back just because the rest are playing there. First time I played in Albuquerque I played the white tees despite the altitude. Moved back for subsequent rounds as it played even shorter then I expected.

  6. This is wrong on so many levels, Golf needs to adopt the play on, no harm no foul mantra... Sent from my SM-N920V using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  7. It's something I've thought about off and on especially when I don't touch a club between tournaments due to business travel. I applaud you for considering all options to improve. When I don't get out and practice/play between tournament rounds the first thing to go is my chipping, second is my swing bottom. I may need to eventually follow through and at least try it. If it doesn't work out it wouldn't be the first club sitting in my garage that was hardly used (I'm terrible at selling clubs)... Sent from my SM-N920V using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  8. With all the rain Northern California has had, every course I've been on has had US OPEN rough and that is not an exaggeration and have been tough to play in wet conditions. The course close to my house has the shaggiest fairways I've ever seen. They just haven't been able to mow as needed until last couple of weeks. About 8 weeks ago a local course set-up Par 3 tee boxes on all holes right next to the cart path and then charged a reduced rate to play the short course.

  9. If the reason you are trying to keep club in front of you because of your build (think upper body) and you are trying to keep from overswinging try the link below. I get in trouble when my arms out swing the rest of my body on my back swing, my pro says I give him an extra hitch he doesn't want and that's when things go bad. If it is not related to your build then just ignore... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JJn9-deB0eo
  10. Sunice order came in, very satisfied with quality and styling but (slumped shoulders) the 3XL is smaller then my Glen Echo 2XL (sigh). Jacket too tight to swing in and vest just to snug. Need to send it back, oh well, that's what I get for not being able to keep the weight off....
  11. I used resemble that remark but now fall back on other colors when buying at discount. If I am paying full freight for apparel, which is rare, its all black or maybe black and charcoal. That said, I have the Sunice Albany (Gore Tex) in all black on the way but had to go with the Charcoal/Black for the Sunice Julius WInd Vest as the all black was sold out in my size. The kicker here is despite the steep discount, this is still the most I have ever spent on a golf rain jacket or vest. However, during my bass fishing days, I really learned to appreciate the value of quality rain wear, particularly Gore-tex, when I bought my first set of the Cabelas Guidewear. I am actually going to wear the bibs to the golf course to see how it feels to swing and walk around a course in them. The Cabelas jacket is just too bulky to try and swing in. For golf, I tried a less expensive route with a Glen Echo rain jacket but just found it doesn't breathe enough, that's $100 I wish I had back to put to the Sunice. Hope the Sunice works out, not all big boy sizes are created equal, will find out soon, package due tomorrow. My Footjoy rain boots came in today and I was satisfied with the fit...
  12. That turned out great, the Evnroll's finish is the only thing I don't like about the putter line. You do excellent work! My Rife Cayman had a similar finish to most of the Evnroll line and glare was a problem at times. I ended up having it refinished in black before I learned I couldn't aim it and bought my Edel. At least I gave a buddy a good deal on the Cayman... Sent from my SM-N920V using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  13. I still have my Eye 2's on loan to my brother. Green dot which shows how much has changed as I now play red dot and wedges even flatter. The Eye 2 wedge ruled out soft sand and rough. I remember playing Genoa Lakes in the Carson Valley in NV. Sand was supposedly the same sand used at Augusta. Between perfect conditions and the Eye 2 I played out of the bunkers like a pro. A lot easier to play out of then the usual hard pan crap at some of the courses I come across in CA. Sent from my SM-N920V using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  14. I had heard the ball testing story before. The other articles were good reads and I do remember the AB ads. When those 1025cm's came out I really liked them and wanted a set, remember hitting them and thinking they were best feeling clubs I had ever hit at that time...

  15. Time to update the bag, some things have changed but overall its more or less the same philosophy, of course this update misses at least a couple of in between set-ups since my original post in early 2013, sorry I never got any pictures up. Putter: Edel Mid Mallet, counterbalanced Wedges: Ben Hogan 49, 53, 57, & 61 degrees - removed all the CWs 7 through W: Ping i Series with Nippon Tour Modus 105 - removed all the CWs, just put the Ping 9 and W in the bag, was playing the BH 41 & 45 6 iron: Titliest AP1 with KBS Tour (just bought the Ping 6 iron but haven't used this on the range yet to see how I hit it) 4 & 5 hybrid: Cobra F6 set at 21.5* and 25*, just put these in the bag, using them for first time during tournament tomorrow 5W: Cobra Baffler Driver: Cally GBB, 9.5 degrees, Fuji Pro 73 Short course driver: Sometimes I will pull out the driver and play the Cally 3Deep, either in 12.5 or 14.5 Background: While traveling on business did a Gears fitting at 2nd Swing in Minneapolis. That's how I ended up with the Callaway Great Big Bertha and moving from AP1 with a tour weight shaft to the Ping i Series with the ligher weight Tour Modus. Average distance was about the same but dispersion on the Ping was tigher and the +/- on distance was tighter with the Ping as well. The only regret I have from that fitting is I forgot my stock shaft for my driver and ended up trading in the Oban Devotion with the old head, wasn't in a position to buy the driver outright.
