  1. This is some sound advise. I was just listening to episode 39 of No Putts Given and they were talking about wedges and grinds. I think this is the year I go wedge crazy. I’m going to focus very strongly in this area this year.
  2. Wow I’ve seen a lot of good posts that resonate with me... I don’t drink that much, but I do like to drink. Whiskeys(Japanese too), Scotch, and tequila are good. If I have a drink before I tee off it’s going to be one of 3 drinks, early tee times like 6-7 would be a good Bloody Mary, any tee time could involve being “iced” having to chug a Smirnoff Ice, post 10am tee time I might go Gin and tonic with Tanqueray Rangpur tonic garnished with a lemon or two. I also love beer, and have been drinking lots of different IPAs this year. Cheers
  3. So excited with the start of summer weather, and courses reopening. This may be my first year with a membership somewhere since I worked at a country club growing up. Swing is coming along very well for me this year, with consistency and distance increasing. I’m pledging to walk as many rounds as possible to increase my stamina and endurance along the way. I have restarted my Arccos stats this year to account for my new yardages, hoping to dial in my GIR hitting over less greens and more to the left. Cheers to all the “regular” golfers out there, hoping you aren’t running into what I’ve termed the “Rona” golfers. In my area I’ve seen a influx of not your average golfer, which I feel is great for the industry and I’m happy to see people who take up the sport. I just hope they quickly learn the etiquette of the game for the sake of pace of play. Yesterday I played super crowded course here in Northern California waiting on the group in front for 18 holes even with the increase in time between groups. We were playing a while hole in the time it took them to tee off, and watching them chip from one side of the green to the other and back was painful by the end of the day. Most of my rounds have been pleasant and quick compared to normal peak times. Has anyone else notice any difference in play since their courses have reopened?
  4. Mike Petaluma California 19 Cobra FlyZ Pro (I’ve never played game improvement clubs and would like to compare) I think it would be in my best interest to try the TS200, so I can see what I’ve been missing all these years. As a lefty I have always found it hard to try different equipment(specifically irons). I have had two sets of irons over 15 years(Titleist PM731, and the Cobra FlyZ Pro). I have a great feel for how I strike the ball and where I hit and the face and can use that to describe these clubs. The bonus would to see what kind of strokes I would gain.

  6. I find it funny the easier the sawing the farther I hit the ball! Crushing it this week, and getting ready for the big games of summer.
  7. #NoPuttsGiven Episode 31

    Today I got on YouTube to watch the No Putts Given episode 31, the number one topic was about the hot button issue of too much distance in golf. The USGA released their distance report which shows pros hitting the ball further almost year after year.  From what Ive thought and many others, equipment isn't the issue in golf, especially when it comes to how long a round takes. Look if you hit he ball further on a short course your pace of play is going to be faster right?

    So I following along intensely to what's being discussed(USGA Distance Report) on episode 31,  just thinking to myself "say this" "say that", only to have Tony Covey chime in and hit point after point that I wanted someone to make. I don't want to seem like I am swinging from his balls, but dude is sharp and extremely relatable. The big thing for me is course conditions, I've played on a lot of different courses from s***** to NCAA Championship courses or walking the us open. Conditions of the course, not the length of the course have way more to do with how the game is played.

    The solution the USGA needs to look at, should be based on helping local courses play better for ammeter players, letting the grass grow for the pro!

    Love what you guys are doing at My Golf Spy and No Putts Given! #TonyCovey

  9. Happy May everyone! Thought I’d drop in and collaborate in 2019, as I’ve officially became a tinkerer. My first project this year is to play with my driver I just picked up. The Cobra King F9 45.5 with the Atmos Tour Spec Black 7 X-Stiff, 9 Degree Avalanche. Hit some long fades at the range with the 14g weight forward and 2g back, and was pretty happy with what I saw. Now there is usually always room to improve, so I ordered up a 18g weight from Cobra to toss in the trunk leaving the 14g in the frunk. I’m hoping to see that this straightens the fade bias, if not I’ll get some different weights. I’ve calculated my driver swing weight to be E1, which might be heavy for a lot of people, but I’m hoping it slows me down a little. Now I’d also like to take a moment to thank MyGolfSpy for what they do, thank you! I used to be horrible putter until MGS did the review on the Ping Ketsch, intrigued by the results I picked one up and have been putting around a 4 HCP ever since. Have not been fitted for a putter yet, and I’m scared to change the great transformation, but have been eyeing the Evnroll stuff. Even more thanks to MGS I picked up a Ping Pioneer cart bag this year, replacing a Datreck bag. WOW what a great bag, the cooler, ball pocket and rangefinder pocket are awesome! I’d hate to says it(because it might sound like I’m choking) but MGS got it right with the Tri-Swival 2 also making it home with me at the end of 18. The rest of my golf bag is filled with optimism, Callaway X-Hot 3W, Taylormade Pittsburgh Persimmon 5W(Straight as @&$K), 3-PW Cobra Fly-Pro(all Lefty BTW!), and Titleist SM 52* and 56*. Did I also mention the Arccos Caddie. Well that’s about all I can add right now(besides the Snell MTB-X I just ordered after the ball review, which were sold out. Gotta give it up to Dean and his team, my balls arrive tomorrow for a tournament I’m in next week.)I will be updating this after my tournament with some equipment photos and a review of my tinkering. I think I forgot to mention I want to try out the Nikon Coolshot Pro Stabilized, if it’s anything like my D750 I bet it’s awesome! Now let’s get out and play!
  10. My name is Mike and I’m from California Bay Area. I play golf year round, rain or shine for about 24 rounds. My Golf Spy, Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter My handicap is a 18 and my swing speed is 105 My current irons are Cobra Fly Z Pro 3-PW Leftie, Driver is a Titleist 913 D3, Callaway and TaylorMade woods, Vokey wedges, Ping putter Cobra King F9 Speed Back 9.0 HZRDUS Black X-Stiff, F9 One Length Irons, 52 and 56 degree wedges. all Leftie in a cart bag please. This is would be and amazing opportunity for me to get out on social media and share all my insights and thoughts I currently share with all my friends, only on a much larger scale.
  11. Mike - California 18 Handicap 105MPH swing speed Titleist 913D3 Ping G410 Plus What are the chances that I want to try this new driver so bad and you guys are offering me a chance to test it?! Coincidence, I say no... Pretty exciting year 2019 is going to be. Let’s do this!
  12. Mike - Petaluma California 18 and dropping fast(I hope)... well we will find out tomorrow if my great progress translated to the T box and approach’s Titleist Spin Milled Vokey SM5 Lefty 52, 56, and 60 degree please.
  13. Mike - California 18 Callaway Chrome Soft Truvis More ball speed Finally something a lefty can get in on lol
  14. Awesome test opertunity! My names Mike, I’m from California and live in the Bay Area. I’m currently wearing a Adidas Storm jacket and Columbia rain pants over normal golf clothes and some UA Spieth Mids with the gortex. I do rock some UnderArmor cold gear when the temps are low. I play a lot in the rain, so I’m not sure how to describe the worst rain I’ve played in, but you know it’s bad when you loose a club more then once during a round or if you get sick from being so cold cause you just won’t quit. I love what I’ve read about Galway Bay and would be super stoked to report back how they perform compared to my passed experiences.
