  1. David Stucky - Vienna, VA (DC area) I’ve been using the Garmin Approach S60 for 3 seasons now so I’m very familiar w gps watches and their functionality.
  2. Hello MGS'ers - Some background history: About 3 years ago, I lost control of my driver entirely. No matter how well I was hitting other clubs, I could not hit the driver. Every shot would either be a high weak slice or a low snap hook (it got so bad that I nearly missed the ball once and it just dribbled off the tee.... yikes). I'm a 15hcp and my standard shot shape is a draw w/ my standard miss being a hook. Driver is literally the ONLY club in my back I slice... and slice it I do! I switched to 3W off the tee and got really proficient with it (distance range is probably b/w 240-2
  3. 1) 33 2) 100mph 3) Snell MTB I previously tested the Snell MTB for MGS (and it made me switch my ball)... so I might be able to offer a unique perspective.
  4. This is my first review for MGS and I have to say I was truly excited to be selected to test out these golf balls... especially after reading MGS' review of them and the comparison of these (amongst other "no-name" golf balls) against the big boys. That said, here are my first impressions (*Warning* brutal honesty): 1. I don't love the name "Snell" or the logo. Unlike most premium golf balls, the logo seems large on the ball itself. That and the font used make me think "cheap" at first... 2. While I totally appreciate the thought, the hat that came with the package was ugly an
  5. David Stucky Northern VA (DC Area) 13.4 hcp 20 rnds per year Typically purchase balls online (e.g. through Amazon) or purchase at course pro shops
  6. David Stucky 34.5 putts per round (according to TheGrint.com) From (and live in) Northern Virginia, but play in and around the DC area Slight Arc Gotta be Tiger for me, but if Jordan can keep it up, he's on pace to be just as clutch.
  7. Can't wait for this tournament. Such a cool course. I like the tradition of the old-school courses like Pinehurst and Oakmont and Marion, but it's a nice change of pace to see a relativley new, public course get the US Open. I also love that it's on the west coast... makes TV broadcase much better for east coast viewers. Might go into prime time Saturday and Sunday nights!
  8. Thanks for that detailed response! I also noticed that I need to change the WIMB signature as I've definitely changed clubs a bit since i last updated it. I hear what you're saying about the stock shafts in GI irons, and that's definitly a concern I have. One thing I've always struggled with was what flex my shafts should be. My swing speed puts me right on the fence b/w R and S, but the first time I got evaluated for a driver at a Golf Galaxy years ago, they told me I needed S flex, so I've kept with that ever since. I've certainly hit with some buddies' clubs that have R shafts and

  11. Nice review Rick! I purchased the Bushnell Neo+ GPS watch earlier this year and absolutely love it! You mention that a problem was the glove pressing buttons accidentally and changing holes on you... but it looks like one of the features is auto-hole recognition... does it not automatically find the correct hole w/o you having to change it manually? I know the Neo+ watch does this. The Neo+ does not have distance to hazards (which would be nice sometimes)... how does that functionality work on the Neo X?
  12. I'm new to the MGS Forum, but have been reading the blog for quite some time. Love the site for it's objective reviews (not ad-induced subjectivity like many of the other big name sites out there). Been playing this game for about six years now after starting late(-er than most) in my mid-20s and have become what my wife would term "obsessed". Still griding, but getting better every year. Looking forward to discussing this great game with everyone.
  13. I think I embody the spirit of Cobra/Puma in that I'm willing to try new things with an open mind and not necessarily dismiss a product or idea just because it goes against the establishment. When Puma came out with golf apparel I bought a polo, not because Rickie was wearing it or because it was different, but because it was the best (IMO) golf shirt technology on the market at the time (I'm usually a Nike loyalist when it comes to apparel... and for good reason, they make some great stuff). The Puma shirt was as good as anything I'd ever tried and the cut fit my body the best (I wish more
