  1. I'd check what kind of carts the club uses, Some of the new yamaha carts have bigger roofs and they don't fit as well. I have this cart cover though. It's going on 4 seasons and still works great. A few other people at my course have gotten them and also like them. Takes a couple mins to take it on and off, very easy. https://clubpro.com/product/3-x-4-universal-enclosure-2/
  2. Yeah, We set records for most snow in Oct. We stand at 8.3 inches so far. It completely snuck up on us, course isn't even winterized yet.
  3. White gets kind of hard to see around here lately...
  4. Looks great, I've done putters before but never wedges. I'd assume they start showing wear almost immediately. Have you played with them yet? Also for anyone looking to follow suit you have to make sure of what type of metal you are starting with. Aluminum and Stainless need a different type of gun blue (not seen very often in wedges anyway) and if they are chome plated you'd have to strip that first and that's not something you want to take on without some prior knowledge and the proper setup.
  5. I have several of each in the collection. Also enough clubs to fill several of each.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. Finally some good news in 2020!!! How they make it safe and sound the last few miles!
  14. 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/
  15. 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
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. From listening to Tony talk about the fall releases on the No Putts Given podcast there could still be some questions. There is still 2019 product on the shelves. 2020 product has not sold through at all like people were forecasting due to the global pandemic and most of retail being shut down. If we get a 2nd wave of covid and stores have to close again it's gonna get very interesting to see who discounts product first just to move through it. If current 2020 models from Taylormade and/or Callaway are on shelves with steep discounts it would be a very hard market to launch a new $500+ dol
  19. I just got the USA edition ones for Father's Day. Haven't worn them on the course yet, but they are super comfy right out of he box walking around the living room. And they look fantastic!
  20. There are all kinds of mounts you can get. You can put them in the little glove boxes, you can get an under roof mount that holds the speakers and a head unit. You can get boat speakers that you can just clip on to the roof supports. I had a buddy that had the charging port on his cart relocated to the rear and put them on each side of the batteries under the seat. Personally I went with a Bazooka Party Bar attached between the two rear roof supports.
  21. I own 2 electric carts. The older models (EZGO TXT) would definitely struggle up hills. The newer cart (EZGO RXV) doesn't slow down at all up hills. The electric RXV's also have 3 speed settings, I have mine all the way up with 14" rims and it goes 24-25mph, that's faster than any gas carts around here. Most courses have them all set to go around 13-14 mph weather it's gas or electric. So I prefer electric carts, It sucks having to replace the batteries, but you don't have to worry about always having enough gas. It's easier for most public courses to run gas though. They can just h
