  1. I have played midsize GP Tour Velvet grips for at least 20 years. I've been battling golfer's elbow all this season and switched them out for GP CP2 Pro to get more cushion. These grips are great! Very tacky and feels like I am not squeezing the club as tightly.
  2. Mats are very forgiving on fairway woods
  3. Update: As always, Ping's customer service is top notch. 7 days from me shipping the putter back to Ping it returned with a new insert installed.
  4. Ping Hoofer has been hands down the best bag in golf for at least 20 years and the newest version is fantastic. Perfect for walking, but works great on a cart too. If you don't walk much, go with the 14 way divider model. https://ping.com/en-us/shop/bags/carry-bags/hoofer https://ping.com/en-us/shop/bags/carry-bags/hoofer-14
  5. I picked up a sleeve of Titleist Tour Speeds yesterday before my round to try. The are the longest ball I have ever played! Probably about half a club longer than the Snell MTB-X on my irons and at least 10 yards longer on the driver. They are straight as an arrow, but have almost no feel or spin going into the greens. The extra distance is fun, but I don't think I will stick with Tour Speed with the short game downsides except for fall and spring golf when the greens are very slow.
  6. I just noticed during my round yesterday that the face insert on my Ping Sigma G Tyne putter is starting to pop out on one side (I've attached a photo). Right now it doesn't seem like a big deal and the center where the ball makes contact looks fine. Do you think this has any effect on performance? Is this something that I can fix myself by popping the insert off and re-gluing it? Or is there some magic that I need a professional to take care of it? If I am going to take out the face insert are there any after market inserts I should be looking at? I haven't found much online for after market inserts. Thanks!
  7. Sign up for how you swing. All of the manufacturers have the specs for their clubs on the website and older year catalogues are usually available online. https://www.cobragolf.com/media/wysiwyg/2013.pdf
  8. My old Hoofer was built like a brick shithouse! The retractable strap was a great idea but never really worked
  9. The post on the Left Dot Titleist got me thinking. How many secret menu balls do they various manufacturers have for tour players?
  10. I've been using the GolfLogix GPS and scoring app on my phone this season and it's been great. Also much cheaper to give you the hole overview benefits of a handheld.
  11. Generally speaking I found that there are 2 types of hybrids, smaller heads more like a driving iron and larger heads more like a fairway wood and they are each more successful when swung like their counterparts. It took me a long time to find hybrids that I could consistently hit well, most were snap hook or worm burners, but once I found my current gamers which I swing down on like irons they have been great and far easier than a 3 or 4 iron to hit into greens.
  12. Has anyone tried the Ballnamic (https://ballfitting.com/) online ball fitting tool? Before dropping $40 on it I was curious what your experience was with it and thoughts on the ball it matched you with.
  13. I stick with a bag till it starts to fall apart. Last month I just picked up my 3rd Ping Hoofer. The first one I had was the original Hoofer model which I got in high school, replaced that about 12 years later with a new Hoofer. That lasted 13 years and just got the latest. Each one has been a real improvement on the previous and the current one is really an amazing bag that was very well thought out with features I wouldn't have even thought I need like the cart strap hole that allows you to access all of the pockets while its on a cart.
  14. I'm pretty flexible. Looks like the weather is going to be awful the rest of the week, so sometime next week. Open to anywhere within 25 miles of DC
  15. I'm up for a round with fellow spies in the DC area. Anyone around next week?
