  1. Man, I spend more time looking at my phone than watching tournaments.... They’ve become so boring unless their a major or Ryder Cup. I just don’t really watch much anymore. Maybe it’s because there aren’t any names I recognize is a lot of these tournaments lately. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  2. I watched a BUNCH of Mike Malaska videos that are on YouTube, and I did some of the drills. With my back disease that I deal with, I’m going to look at transitioning to what he teaches. It seems like it will help save my back in the long run. The other two guys I’ve done lessons with, Bryan Pate, and Mike Bender, have so much body movement/rotation/extension that I actually HURT after doing their drills, or hitting balls, or playing 18. This is a big change, but for the sake of reducing pain, I gotta do it. Plus, having played tennis year round until I was 14, I really see his swing philosophy of hand action being pretty easy to mimic since it’s very similar to the old forehand I hit!!!

  3. The old ones look nice, but I don’t miss the weight, or picking them up off the ground 80 times a round. For a cart bag, I just can’t see having the weight in and out of the car, and I use my cart bag when I travel, so I can’t see adding more pounds at weigh-in for air travel.

  4. Struggled with this system yesterday, and I HATE the phone in the pocket! No idea of how to add shots mid-round, so I ended the round after 9 holes, then re-started another round for the back nine. Deleted both. I don’t know if there’s any way I use this thing going forward without the belt clip device. There’s NO way I’m playing with a phone in my pocket! I may just “return” the sensors to Arccos. I don’t really need the stats... I suck right now and I know why without Arccos telling me. I’d rather wear the Shot Scope watch.... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  5. I’m really enjoying watching my Tigers this year! The offense isn’t boring like it was under Miles, and Burrow is the real deal! They have it all on offense: QB, a line, RB, receivers, and finally some great play calling! Defense came-up HUGE! For awhile it looked like “last one who scores, wins.” Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  6. First round with the M5HT went very well! It took me awhile to get the sense for the speed off of the face, but once I did it was good! Direction was good, and distance judgement was as well. On 16, I had hit 6 balls into the green. I picked them up, and then tossed them around the green. It took me 9 putts to sink all 6! Two of the three I made were over 12’.

  7. Perfect tonight! 58*, so sitting outside watching my LSU Tigers!!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  8. I’m so messed-up right now! Three swings in my head, all different. It’s driving me nuts! Too many different lessons, so once I get to the top, I have no feel for how to get to the ball. With driver, I’m not sure if I should play a draw, fade, or “straight”. Our course is SO dry, having hard pan lies on every shot doesn’t help. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  9. I tried the Ping first at my wedge fitting, but ball speed was down, height was too high, and there was no way I could order them based on all of the data. I picked my wedges to achieve a shot window, and none of the wedges mentioned did it for me. Will I lose performance when playing in dew covered grass? Yep. But, one still has to get the club that fits best. I REALLY wanted it to be Ping! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  10. Declining. I’ve gone from ALMOST hitting 5 hcp on the nose, to now being a 7.1. I’ve had very few rounds in the 70s this year, and my chipping yips have REALLY cost me a ton of strokes. I just don’t get to hit balls like I used to. I went from once or more a week, to once a month.... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  11. Finally found it and listened to it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  12. Man, nothing like Mountain golf in the Blue Ridge!!! I went to App State and fell in love with golf up there! Nothing else like it!!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  13. My biggest question for selecting a coach is l: do you teach ONE method to all golfers? If the Pro can’t teach to your body type, your capabilities, to YOUR needs, and not just put you in a one-size-fits-all system, then I’d go elsewhere. Ask their philosophies on the swing, and how they specifically adjust for someone taller, shorter, more muscular, skinnier, older, or younger. If they can’t quantify, walk away.

  14. We just got my wife a new Atlas. We really like it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  15. I’m driving this as a work rental. Great vehicle! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  16. They’re talking about new options. There are more bends than just one or two, so it sounds like there are going to be more options for fitting. A lot of what they’re doing at Tour events is getting feedback on stuff that hasn’t been seen yet. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  17. Very nice! Did you make any purchases? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  18. Thanks for taking the time to read it! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  19. It’s going to be interesting to see their new models. Keep in-mind that they now offer bent shafts, and are going to come out with new designs where the “red dot” will be on the shaft itself. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  20. Mine should be here Saturday. Still not sure I’ll use them or not. I pretty much know that my short game and putting kills me. I also can’t see myself keeping my phone in my pocket the whole round. Heck, I don’t even like having tees and divot tools in my pockets! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  21. Still just amazed at all of this! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  22. True, but this wasn’t about the results. This was about SeeMore doing more than most. You know what? They even told me that if I use the putter and it seems it needs a change of some kind, like grip, shaft bend, weighting, etc, that they’ll take care of me. Scotty doesn’t do this for “just a guy”. Customer service and catering to ALL golfers is what this is about. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  23. I just picked it up at FedEx last night.... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  24. In addition to the shaft it could be degree of offset, lofts, and lies, delivered angles, weighting of the clubs, etc, etc. Could be a myriad of things. Those i10s look a little more compact than the i410 too. I didn’t play Ping i210 worth a crap, but the i500s and I get along GREAT! So many factors as to why, and me being an amateur is part of that difference too. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  25. I posted a couple times about the SeeMore putter I just bought, so since it arrived today, I wanted to make sure to share this great story of customer service! A couple months back, SeeMore posted on Instagram something to the effect that they were there to help folks with their putting. I responded with, “I need help,” and got a response to call a phone number. Turns out it was the number to the CEO, Jim Grundberg! Seriously.... He and I talked for awhile about what my issues were, what putter I was playing, any fitting stories, where I played, and what my ultimate goal was. We then visited a bit about my experience with SeeMore in the past, and some of what is new at the company. Following the call, he emailed me and copied their Director of Tour Operations, Cody Hale, and asked Cody, in the email, to reach-out to me to be of service. So, at this point I’ve talked to the CEO, and I’m being put in-touch with their Tour guy. What?! No way!!! Cody emailed me and let me know he’d be busy for a bit with the Tour, but that we could get on a phone call. Once we connected, we agreed that I would get Cody some video so he could look at my swing, and then we’d go from there. It took me a few weeks to get him the video, but it didn’t matter! He got right back in-touch with me. We went back over my misses (left, and short), and how we could look to try a couple things to see if it helped. We even went over SAM results from Club Champion I still had as well so that he had the most data possible to work with. He had me go practice by gripping down an inch on my 37” putter and get a mirror to make sure my eyes were in the proper place. I did this, and played a round gripping down and it didn’t work well for speed, but direction seemed to improve. We got back on a phone call, and went over what worked and didn’t work, and then we started talking about putters in their line that might help my distance issues (face factors), and then designs, straight vs bent shafts, length, lie, loft, etc. Cody has done 1000s of fittings at the home office in Franklin, TN, and has been a playing Pro, as well as having worked with fitting pros... I took all of his advice!!! Ultimately we decided that the new 100% milled, Platinum Series, would be the best choice. We agreed on the M5HT, with a straight shaft (45* toe hang), at 36”, or an inch shorter than my current putters. We went with a larger grip to help slow the rotation of my wrists, and to help with the left miss a little bit. Lastly, we went a degree lower on the loft and lie (70*/2*) to finish up. I placed the order the same day, and Cody even had me include a note on the order to have them rush it. I immediately got an email from the build department asking me when I needed to have it. I replied by this Friday, and they replied with one word, “Done!” Seriously! Next thing you know I get an email that they’ll have it built and out the door Monday (just two days after I ordered it), and would have it to me by Wednesday, two days early!!! Again, all of this came directly from the builders! Sure enough, it arrived today!!! Unreal.... Back when the folks on here did the Evnroll reviews they talked directly with Guerin Rife, and that was pretty amazing. We don’t hear of that in the reviews too often. So, for me, not doing a review for a website, and I was originally just a “guy” making a comment to a post on Instagram, having the CEO, and Director of Tour Operations reach-out, and do all they did was just jaw dropping. I told Cody, I’m just a guy, I’m not a Tour player, and this isn’t his job because I didn’t come to the home office for a fitting. He did it anyway, and he did it all for FREE. I honestly have never heard of this before in the golf industry. Just amazing. What a company! Even down to getting my putter out as fast as humanly possible, just because! Look, SeeMore doesn’t pay Pros... They don’t have the cache of Scotty Cameron, and they aren’t the giant beast of Callaway/Odyssey. These guys go WORK for everything they get. Pros aren’t being seen on TV “hiding the red dot” a lot of times because no check is handed to the Pro with the putter. Give these guys a look! They deserve it, and the technology, quality, and obviously the customer service, are top notch! Next time you go to a golf store, go grab a SeeMore at the same time you go grab a Scotty.... “Hide the red dot” at address, and hit some putts. I’m telling you, you’ll be glad you did! And heck, maybe you even end-up getting the customer service I did, from CEO on down.... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
