  1. Well its time for another update. Since I last updated I have played in 3 events. The first one was a Golfweek Am Tour event at Purdue. I had never played these courses before and going in blind is always fun. The first round I started off well and was -4 through 12 holes. I made a few mistakes coming in but was able to get it in the house at 71 (-1). The second day I again started well and was -2 through 5 but again stumbled and ended up at even for the day and one under for the tournament. 71 - 72 = 143 (-1) and that was good enough to get the win for that weekend! The next event I played was a match play event. Qualified on Wednesday August 5th with a round of 74, not my best effort, and lost the next day in the first round. That dropped me into a loser bracket and I played all the way till Saturday and lost in the Semi Finals 2&1. I always have loved this event because it is match play and there are very few of these events left. And finally on Tuesday August 11th I had a qualifier for the Illinois State Mid Amateur Championship. Unlike the other events, I started off very poor. I was +3 through 7 and made the turn at +4. That number was never going to get me in. I thought maybe +2 would, so I knew I had to play well on the back. I started with birdies on 10 & 11 to get it back to +2. I got an update from an official that it looked like the number was going to be even par. I still need 2 more coming in. Well the game was there and I made birdies on 14 & 17 to get it back to even par and qualify on the number. 40 - 32 = 72 (even par). That is now my next event on August 24th & 25th. I finished T-22 in the state mid am last year and I hope to improve on that this year!
  2. No this is an old watch I brought back out just to see how it still worked.
  3. I agree with @TCUFrog. It will be nice to get the yardages to other objects that can't get with a laser. The watch this weekend gave that information, but there was a lot of glare.
  4. Broke out my old Bushnell watch this weekend to see how it still worked. Worked very well. Easily found the course and was right on accuracy wise. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  5. I have played with a watch in the past. If the buttons are in the right place it should be fine. I did have one that every swing I would hit a button and it would beep.
  6. Introduction: Thank you again to MGS for the opportunity to test another product that has some awesome features. A little bit about who I am. I grew up in western Pennsylvania playing a shorter course in the small town of Kane (Kane Country Club). This is a shorter (6000 yds) course but very tight and small greens. It was a great place to learn the game and grow up. I was lucky enough to play good golf in high school and earned a scholarship to play at St. Bonaventure University. I went on to have a very nice carrier there ( https://gobonnies.sbu.edu/sports/m-golf/2016-17/files/Golf_Career_Scoring.pdf ). I still hold the records for most wins (5) and lowest year scoring average at 73.0. From there I failed horribly at trying to play professional golf. I went out on my own didn't have a support team, slept in my car and never made a cut. I went back home with my tail between my legs and started over. I didn't play events for a few years as I was trying to find the fun in the game again and with help from my wife (she plays too) it has become a lot of fun again. A fun note, I have 2 course records (60 at Urbana CC tie with Steve Stricker and Dylan Meyer & 61 at Kane Country Club) but I do not have any hole in ones. I currently play to a +2.4 index and have a full slate of events for August if everything stays the way it is (who knows with 2020). As far as getting my distances, I currently use a Bushnell laser. I find this to be great when shooting an object that is above ground. I have used watches in the past and I am looking forward to using this one. It will be great to see how accurate it is compared to the laser and we will see if this can help my game even further. Keep the questions coming as this should be a fun thread to follow.
  7. Right now the only tech I use is a Bushnell laser. It works well to quickly get yardages to bunkers and the flag. Not as east to get front, middle, back and what some carries are over water. I have some nice events coming up on courses that I have not played in a long time and some I have never played so we will see how this watch holds up.
  8. Well 2020 has certainly been an interesting summer. An update here, living in Illinois it has been hard to find events to play in. I decided to join the Golfweek Amateur tour over in Indianapolis. I have played in 2 events so far over there with one win and one 2nd. So far the courses have been very good and the players are a lot of fun. My next event over over there will be Aug 1 and 2 at the Purdue Golf Complex. As far as golf tournaments in Illinois I was able to win my 5th straight club championship this weekend! I shot 67 - 73 (-4) 140 for the weekend. I was very happy with how I hit the golf ball and to get a couple of good tournament rounds in. In the bag for the year are the following clubs: Driver - Taylormade M6 4 wood - [mention=76062]GolfSub70[/mention] Pro 16* Irons - [mention=76062]GolfSub70[/mention] 699 Pro 3 iron, 639 CB 4 - 6 iron & 639 MB 7-PW Wedges - Titleist Vokey 50, 54, 60 Putter - Taylormade Spider Grips - Golf Pride Tour Z Cord Align. August is going to get busy with events so stay tuned! Hopefully more updates to come!
  9. Thank you MGS. Can’t wait to test this watch out! Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  10. This is awesome! Congratulations!
  11. Josh - Illinois Yes, Bushnell and Skycaddie Bushnell Laser Good Luck Everyone!
  12. I have made a few birdies before. 7 Birdies for 9 holes (back in 2006) and 12 for 18 (2018) are my personal bests. And 5 in a row (multiple times).
  13. Updated a few events. Yes I am going to have to travel to get to some of these, but they should be well worth it. I am really excited about going back home to western PA and playing in the https://swnynwpa.com/ men's amateur. Check it out. It can be a lot of good golf for only $120.
  14. All of our state and CDGA events have been canceled through June. Hopefully they said maybe July they could start here. I know Indiana is still playing all most there events.
