  4. Heh, yes sir. But I did visit NY last year long enough to play the Black! Luckily I chose to have a human cart lug my bag for me. That would have been a tough haul on my own.
  5. One of my playing partners has the MicroCart and his bag doesn't fit quite well on it. The front wheels actually grind against it. I'm kind of down on Sun Mountain right now. I had the previous Speed Cart with the tires, but it got old having to inflate them. And the newer Speed Cart, as I said, lived down to the bottom of the rankings of the Most Wanted test. Right now my front wheel won't lock when folded anymore.
  6. Thanks for the suggestions. The Big Max is intriguing. Of course, a Clicgear with a seat is fine option too. Will research!
  7. I'm in the market for a new push cart. I'm using the Sun Mountain V1 speed cart and let's say it's lived down to its bottom of the rankings spot in the 2015 Most Wanted Push Carts. Does anyone have a push cart they think highly of? That's durable and doesn't take up too much space folded up in the car? And also works well in uneven terrain and sandy/dirt areas? Thanks!
  8. I played that probably 11 years ago on a trip to the CDA Resort. Really nice place. I remember it being tough.
  9. Guy at my course gave me one right before MGS announced the test. I messed around with it this past weekend comparing it to a Pro-V1x. Gotta say, I couldn't much tell the difference. The Pro-V1x probably feels a little better off the club, but I was getting the same distance and on short wedges around the green the Costco ball was behaving about the same. Very interesting.
  10. 1. Have you purchased any golf products based on MyGolfSpy reviews? (Please list which ones.) So this is a tricky question. One item I did purchase based on Most Wanted testing was a Leupold GX-3i2 as I needed a new rangefinder and that one tested well. I've used Bridgestone B330-RX for years, even before MGS started using them for testing. However, all club purchases I've made in the past 4 years or so have been based on being fitted. I've bought the Callaway BBA (2014) driver and fairway wood, the XR16 Pro driver, TM RocketBladez irons, and, just recently, the XR Steelheads. The Steelheads haven't been reviewed yet, but the others have scored well in Most Wanted testing. Did I buy these items because of the testing? No, it was because I was fit for them and that's what I hit best. Which is what MGS preaches. I do have a Scotty Cameron putter, which I love, and which usually tests terribly in Most Wanted sessions. If anything, I would like to check out Carbon Putters. 2. How has MyGolfSpy changed the way you think about golf equipment? That you don't have to change equipment that often. Year over year, there isn't much change. If you go 3 years or so, you can then tap into new technology if you're looking to switch. 3. Have these purchases lowered your scores? (List which products and how much they have lowered your scores.) Sadly no, my scores have actually increased the past couple of years. But it's because I developed some bad tendencies and habits in my swing which I've been working on with my instructor. When I can get my swing unstuck, the new equipment sure does work well. I will say that I think the Callaway MD3 wedge and the PM Grind wedge I've bought have really helped my short game. 4. How have these purchases helped you enjoy the game more? Who doesn't like getting new equipment? At the end of the day, we're all logging into an equipment site because we love it, right?
  11. I know that the club gets your hands in the correct impact position, but did you find that you had to adjust other parts of your swing to get into position as well? For instance, having to adjust footwork or lower body action?
  12. Tom California HCP 12 Test 17 and 20 Never have had anything other than Callaway hybrids.
  13. I did get a Leupold range finder based in part on the Most Wanted test and generally have been pretty happy with it. I've been using Bridgestone B330RX for a long time but I did find a Snell ball on my course the other week (it has since found the graveyard in the weeds). The last big piece of equipment I purchased was a Scotty Cameron blade, but that was based on a fitting at my course and not Most Wanted because, obviously, SC blades don't seem to stack up that well.
