  1. Been a member since February 2010 apparently, but was pretty active on a now extinct golf forum run by a con man in Las Vegas back in the day. I haven't been very active on here due to life getting in the way quite a bit, so I thought I'd reintroduce myself. How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score? I started playing when I was six years old, so that makes it 43 years now. What do you love about golf? I started playing with my Dad and brother and now my sons play with me. It's getting outside with family and/or friends and just enjoying some time outside away from the grind of daily life. Golf might be the only thing I do where I'm continuously learning and trying to get better. If I was as driven and dedicated in everything else in my life as I am at golf, I'd have enough money to have retired by now and play golf every day. What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies? I've been here quite a while, but I was deploying with the Navy shortly after I joined, then had a kid, and then moved to San Diego where I was playing golf rather than talking about it when I had the time. I met the GolfSpy himself on a bus in Costa Rica when we were on the same tour in 2009 and I'm sure I know a few others from the site I used to be on quite a bit back in the 2003 - 2007 time frame. Where are you from? What is your home course? I am originally from Fort Wayne, IN but now live in Charleston, SC. I'm a member at the Daniel Island Club. We have two courses, Ralston Creek by Rees Jones and Beresford Creek by Tom Fazio. Both have gone through extensive renovations the last eighteen months to recover from a superintendent who was allowed to stay on the job about ten years too long. Fortunately, our new superintendent has both courses in incredible shape and they'll only continue to get better. What are the best and worst things about golf in your region? The best thing is that we can play year round for the most part. The worst part is the heat and humidity in the summer and the sand gnats in the spring and fall when the weather is absolutely perfect. What do you do for a living? I manage large national accounts for a global healthcare company so I travel quite a bit for work. I've only taken my clubs on one work trip in the three years I've been there when I was lucky enough to play Ballyneal and Colorado Golf Club during a trip to Denver. How’d you pick your user name? While I loved being on the ocean, I hated going to sea and leaving my family and friends behind. It sucked. Hence, seasuks.
  2. Marc - Charleston, SC 48 yrs old GHIN - 3.1 Current set - Mizuno MP33 3-PW w/Tour Floghted Rifle 6.5, TM Milled Grind 52, 56, TM Hi Toe 60 (all wedges PX 6.5) Would love to test and see how they compare to my well worn MP33s (and old Apexes that I have lying around somewhere.) Thanks for the chance to enter!
  3. 1. Marc - California 2. 2.8 3. 2016 TM M1 w/Oban Kyoshi Purple X 4. 115mph, 285 yards 5. Wesley Bryan Thanks!
  4. I've got some stichback grips like those only in smooth leather. Fantastic.
  5. That's EXACTLY what the $0.99 version of Golfshot does. If you want the GPS along with it, that's an extra $30.
  6. I had a tour r7 with a Diamana Blueboard 73X tipped .75" that I cracked the week before the US Open qualifier in 2007. I'm still looking for something that I can hit as far and as well as that thing and that sounds as muted as it did. Never once did it make a metallic sound...the rubber washers on the weights made it sound awesome. I've tried the Cobra Speed Pro D, the J33, and the FT-9 Tour and while a couple have been close, nothing has touched it...until I hit the FT Tour. If you were a fan of the original r7 check out the FT Tour. Looks like it from address and it's the best sounding driver I've hit since my old r7 and persimmon. It also happens to go as far as my old r7 with the stock Matrix X-Con 6X. I'm a happy man again...and I might be even happier after I put the Matrix HD6X in it this week.
  7. Absolutely. FT 9 Tour Authentic = FT Tour. Only difference is purely cosmetic. The FT 9 Tour is just the half degree lofted, open/square faced version of the FT 9.
  8. Played with a former Cally rep yesterday. He was bagging an FT 9 Tour Authentic with the hosel which was the prototype for the FT Tour. Asked him the differences between his stick and the new FT Tour. Only differences are purely cosmetic...red vs. grey back slats and it says FT Tour instead of FT 9 Tour Authentic. Other than that, identical. I've been playing a FT 9 Tour Neutral with Diamana Whiteboard 83X tipped 1" for the past six months or so. It's a solid stick but the decent angle is terrible and I get zero roll on most courses. I tried the Cally rep's FT 9 TA w/Matrix HD6 X tipped .5" (Matrix's version of the Whiteboard according to the rep)...all I can say is wow. Pure and simple, WOW. My ball flight came down about thirty feet, I carried it the same distance, and then I got roll. Lots of roll. It is without a doubt the best sounding driver to me since persimmon. There was zero "tink", "clank" or "tang" out of this thing. It seriously did sound like wood. Pure awesomeness, plain and simple. Also the best looking club I've seen in a long, long time. It looks like the old Titleist 983E from address. Nice and deep face, classic pear shaped profile.
  9. True, but they are more forgiving than straight blades to me. I'm not looking for Big Bertha type forgiveness, I'm just looking for a slightly bigger sweet spot. I've played them before, it's just been quite a while so I'm going to give them another shot. Workability is still important to me so they could be the best of both worlds for now...
  10. All three sets of my MP 33s have had the same set of tour flighted rifle 6.5s in them. I've moved them from set to set every time.
  11. It's in my signature. With the exception of the driver and wedges it's been the same thing for four or five years now. Got a new driver because my r7 cracked other wise it'd still be in the bag. I'll have to get some new wedges with the new grooves this year at some point but I'll stick with these for now...they're a couple years old.
  12. Before pay for play Mizuno was the #1 iron in golf for something like ten years straight. I'd venture to say that if the pros didn't get paid to play irons, a significant portion of them would go Mizzy. So Mizzy irons, wedges, and hybrids with a Callaway driver. I'd have to have someone cut some grooves in the putter face though. I hate seeing the ball skid like it does off of Tour Scotty's for me on Bermuda. On bent or poa they're good, but on anything with serious grain, they're terrible for me. Your experience might vary though.
  13. I'm playing an FT-9 Tour IMix right now with an Ion Whiteboard and it's fantastic. That being said the FT Tours are out now and they look incredible. Reminded me a lot of the 983E only blown up a little bit. Deep face, nice pear shape, long hosel. Can't wait to hit it although I'll probably wait until after my trip to Bandon Dunes in April.
  14. I've been playing raw MP 33s for the last three years which feel softer than the satin set before it which feel softer than the chrome set I had before that. Hitting an MP 33, or any Mizzy forged iron for that matter, on the sweet spot is one of the greatest feelings in golf in my opinion. Haven't been getting to play as much as I'd like lately so I'm going to demo some Miura RAC CBs in the next month or so to try and get a little more forgiveness. Not a lot but I need some more face to hit the ball right now unfortunately.
