  4. Every aspect of the game is better. Lag putts from 100 feet are bad if they finish outside 3 feet. Par 4s under 400 yards are gimme birdies where a par is a stroke lost to the field. Same with any par 5. Driving AVERAGE of 290 is low and you'd better be hitting 80%+ fairways at that length. If you aren't putting pitches to kick in distance, you're struggling. This also applies to your off days, when your swing doesn't feel right and the weather is lousy. Watch Mark Crossfield's matches against European Tour pros. He struggles to keep up with them goofing around. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

  6. Short side pitch with a downhill lie from the rough. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  7. Missing fairways at Augusta is like missing water in the ocean. Good choice of shaft, he just needs to swap that head out for an aeroburner mini. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  8. A club rep from Taylormade needs to put an Aeroburner Mini bent to whatever loft works in his bag and throw the driver in the ocean. He is awful with the driver. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  9. The milling pattern matches the PTx short irons. I would have liked them to keep the brass Hogan profile badge that the PTx had. Otherwise, I like them. They remind me of the Apex Plus irons. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  10. Yeah. I would probably do power hybrid, 7 iron, 50 degree wedge and putter. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  11. I think the major decider is par 3 length. If there is one that requires more precision, that's the iron I'd take. Then fill in from there with either a hybrid or fairway wood and a gap or sand wedge. For example, I play a course that has a 150 yard forced carry. I'm not taking an iron that goes any shorter than that. That's my 6 iron. Most of the par 4s are close to 300, close to 350, or close to 400. My hybrid goes about 200, so that covers all the par 4s. There's one short par 3 at 100 yards that I know is a gap wedge. That gives most combinations of holes on this course with only minor tweaks. That all changes if the must cover par 3 is a 135 yard island (like TPC Sawgrass). Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  12. If you need to hit low shots often (under trees or wind) I'd go with the driving iron or 4 iron. If not, the hybrid really is the most forgiving. Another thing to consider is the roll out you can expect. The courses I play don't offer much roll and tend to have the front guarded, which makes the longer flight and higher descent angle a benefit. If you play linksy courses that favor a ground game, the iron or driving iron would probably be better. Not saying what to do. Just giving you something to think about.

  13. It is unbelievable how accurate they are tee to green on the LPGA tour. Their shortcomings are mostly around the green. If you did it like Bobby Flay's Throw Down it would be awesome. Take guys who post a thing on social media about being better than LPGA Professionals and surprise them with a camera crew and any female pro. Challenging them to 18 holes at their home course under tournament conditions and rules. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  14. I think they are aiming too high with their quest for the open. Shiels and Finch both have the length to compete, but have very questionable short games. If you watch Crossfield and Coach they get themselves into similar situations as SF but make shots around the green like crazy. I'd say Coach would have the best chance of the four to qualify.

  15. A custom club shop like bos doing crazy custom jobs like American Chopper would be kind of cool. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  16. I like the idea of following a mid-handicapper trying to progress. Like YouTube Rick Schiels' quest for the open. There is another YouTube show sponsored by GoPro that follows a guy trying to get in on a Monday qualifier. They do a different guy each episode. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  17. Like the title says, if you could pitch a show idea to the Golf Channel what would it be? The first thing I would pitch is an equipment show where Wilson Staff had a team of their top engineers and designers with no constraints except USGA conformance design a club from start to finish. Like "Driver vs Driver" with people who know what they are doing. The second show would take a struggling mom and pop golf course or muni and restore or renovate it to make it profitable again. It could be like "Kitchen Nightmares" for golf courses. Giving insight into the industry to regular golfers and a roadmap for struggling golf operations. I would watch the hell out of both these shows as long as Brian Urlacher had nothing to do with them. He seems nice enough, but he doesn't open his mouth wide enough to speak on television. What about you guys and gals? What would you want to watch instead of Tin Cup reruns? Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  18. I'm also 5'5". I have been just smashing the ball down the middle with a shorter driver shaft. If you can find a five wood from the same oem you could use that shaft at the store to see if it helps. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy mobile app

  20. I tried choking up and it helped a little, but I wasn't comfortable with having my right hand virtually off the grip. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  21. I have been tracking my stats using TheGrint.com for the last two years and earlier this year I noticed that my driving accuracy was 38% FIR, well below even high handicap golfers. This led me to cut down my driver and three wood in early July to 42.5 and 42 inches, respectively. Since that time my driving accuracy has jumped to 65% FIR over the last two months, culminating in a 100% FIR driving effort for my last nine hole round yesterday. I will say that I lost nominal distance with the driver (approx. 5-10 yards) but it has been worth it. Mileage may vary and cutting 3 inches off a driver shaft may not be the right solution for everyone, but for me this was the best thing I've done for my game in years. It is much more fun hitting from the fairway and not losing your golf ball 3 times a round. Just wondering if anyone else has done something drastic like this to try and fix a weakness in their game and how it turned out.
  22. This is like the Jordan Speith ruling a month or so ago. He took relief from a cart path using one club, then took a shorter club after the relief and was standing on the cart path a little. He ultimately wanted to move away from a bush that impeded his backswing and move to a better angle to the green. The rules official said it was fine because it was reasonable to expect that shot before the drop and after the drop he is allowed to play whichever way he deems necessary.

  23. Course ratings are higher on tour, so it would be closer to 66, but if he played the average club, he'd shoot low 60's without breaking a sweat. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy mobile app
