  1. FWIW I'm currently a 2.5 index and I play Cleveland CBX irons. Solidly in the game improvement category. There is no set trigger or time you need to make a switch. Personally I don't think there is any reason to switch at all for me. If there is something you are looking for your current irons to do (or not do) then I would recommend getting fit again as others have already said. Go in with an open mind and play the equipment that best fits your game. Don't get hung up on what category of clubs you play.
  2. Here is an article on screens from MGS, I'd definitely go this route. https://mygolfspy.com/carls-place-impact-screens-the-real-deal/ Also if you are going to put in the work to build a setup like this I would highly recommend building it not specifically for just an optishot. The platform, screen, netting, any sort of cage type structure that you build should translate to a different launch monitor setup as well. If down the road you want to upgrade to a skytrak or more you don't want to have to rebuild half your setup.
  3. It's really a personal preference, but I like matching my wedge shafts to my iron shafts. I like having a consistent feel throughout my set. You could build them a couple swing weight points heavier if you want a heavier feel.
  4. There's been many drivers that have attempted to knock it out of the bag, but I'm still gaming the SLDR 430 head I got on the TMaG trip when it was released. The fitter there adjusted the loft and sliding weight, and I haven't touched it since. I did swap out the whiteboard I was fit in to for a Ventus Black this year but I use the same loft setting as before. It's taken 7 seasons but I'm slowly realizing this combo is as good as I can get for me in a driver.
  5. Tony just had a great article about this on the blog. If you haven't seen it yet it's a great read. https://mygolfspy.com/should-you-dump-your-pitching-wedge/ Personally I go set matching down through my gap wedge, but that's just based on how I use them. If you are primarily using them for full swings and want the same type of flight you get with the rest of your irons then I would recommend the set matching route. If you want to be able to use them in lots of different scenarios, chipping around the green, or trying to flight it lower and spin more then typically a PW that matches y
  6. I switched to BOA a few years ago and won't buy anything without it. The one exception being the USA edition of the CodeChaos that came out this year. Love that shoe but BOA wasn't an option for that edition.
  7. When I am hitting driver well it's generally a straight flight, but I pull it. Rather than going through a long process of fixing or rebuilding a swing, I now just aim farther right on my setup and usually pull it down the middle (if I'm playing well). It's by far the easiest fix if you are overall happy with the ball flight, just not the direction. And if it's pretty consistent.
  8. Finally some good news in 2020!!! How they make it safe and sound the last few miles!
  9. Here's a great place to start looking. https://mygolfspy.com/best-stand-bag-for-2020/ and also last years test... https://mygolfspy.com/the-best-stand-bags-of-2019/
  10. If you have taper tip shafts, you don't want to ever trim from the tip. You install the proper shaft in the proper iron and then trim the butt end to playing length. If you want to adjust the flex you would do what's called hard stepping or soft stepping the shafts. That would be taking say a 7i shaft and installing it in the 6i (hard stepping, goes up in flex) or installing it in the 8i (soft stepping, goes down in flex) For each "step" the iron shaft flex changes by about 1/3 of a flex. So in your example (assuming 1/2" length progression) you would pull all the shaft and move them up
  11. If you have a ferrule on it, try pushing it back down toward the head. If it moves then it's not the hosel coming out, it's the ferrule creeping up. Typically epoxy fails for only a couple of reasons, didn't prep shaft properly (abraided and cleaned), didn't mix epoxy equally or enough, or epoxy got overheated and started to break down. I'd just start eliminating variables and see if it keeps happening.
  12. On mine if I hold the button down it keeps giving distances (until a lock on) So I always shoot the background first and swipe it left and right over the flag until it either locks on or I get the same reading a couple of times.
