  1. Signed up. Feedback may not be my strongest attribute - but it is - ALWAYS trying different Golf Balls to find a magic solution.
  2. No, I don't think TheGrint can give you total feet of putts made. Hope my comment didn't lead anyone astray. I do use Shot Scope V3 for giving me distances for each shot taken and use the "manual" method for collecting putts and marking pin locations. It works fairly well and gives stats. Of course GPS accuracy is not always the greatest but if you use it over a lot of rounds then the numbers come out pretty close. For my game and purposes it has worked well for me. I use TheGrint for on course score keeping and it also keeps stats. I started using it several years ago because the us
  3. Got my round in - just under the deadline. Not so bad, better than the last two rounds but missed a lot of greens which led to a fair amount of up and downs but very few "total feet made" for putts. Hope the criteria breaks in my direction.
  4. One major is run by the R&A, one by the USGA, one by a private committee and the PGA is run by the PGA of America. None are run by the PGA Tour so not sure what power the PGA Tour has other than TV money to determine what is a major and not.
  5. I use Nexcare by 3M. Waterproof, soft and stretchy. Stays in place and works very well for me. Can buy at most grocery stores or drug stores.
  6. Congratulations to the winners. Next time for all of the rest of us. Must say that the criteria seems a little too much like math - and not enough like golf. Looking forward to the next month contest and perhaps next time it will be some random golf related criteria? Still loving the idea and as a Grint user it fits nicely with me.
  7. Floating in Epsom salt will work if you are meticulous in your marking. But unless it is a really bad ball, it is doubtful that a person will be able to see a difference caused by the ball being bad. Of course there is always the mental benefit of one less thing of concern, and we all know how mental Golf can be sometimes. Try it by finding "bad" balls and playing them to see if a difference can be noted and if so - then float your balls.
  8. Got my round in today. Since I was making mostly pars, I decided I want the criteria to be: Most pars with at least one birdy and one 3 putt. I wanted to get a sandy/save or better yet a sandy/birdy - but alas I missed the sand trap on the final hole (par 5). Maybe next time. Starting to really love this, long time TheGrint user and this should turn out to be fantastic.
  9. Sounds great, used TheGrint for several years now so looking forward to getting in the mix.
  10. I have played two rounds now since the software update. The watch is performing perfectly. I love the last tag indicator, the last thing I usually do before setting up to hit the shot is check the yardage. Now I immediately see that the correct tag is selected, you are ready to hit. I was initially getting 10 or so missed shots, and I was never sure if I had taken enough of a practice swing or not. Now I know immediately by just looking at the watch. I think the other improvements in distance recognition and such have probably helped also, but the bottom line is that now I can just p
  11. I have been playing the EXS for a little over a year now. Have the Tensi CK (Blue) at 46.25". Also bought the weight kit (directly from Tour Edge) and am using the 3g in the heel with the 14g in the rear. Swing weight is D4.5. I have the 10.5 degree head and am currently set at the "N" position. Love the driver, well struck balls are straight and distance is comparable if not a little better for me than several of the much higher costing drivers I tried. Mis-hits are still pretty good so I think it is a forgiving club. With the loft adjustments and the weight kit you can really dial
  12. I will say that ShotScope support has always been extremely quick and excellent every time I have contacted them in the past. It must be busy times right now. Warning: I lost one of the screws in my watch band (there are four of them) and contacted them on Monday but have yet to hear from them. Need to know the size of screw and type/size of driver needed. They are definitely Torx (probably T2 or T3 but not sure.). I have repaired mine using a screw from spare eyeglasses with phillips head (I have a driver to fit). So today my watch worked and none of the other screws came out. I don't h
  13. Well my 7 day estimate turned into 6 day actual. The V3 arrived today. Charged/updated with no issues. Changed out all the V2 tags for V3, updated the courses and will give it the first workout tomorrow. Love the new size and the band is definitely an upgrade to me. There are only 4 buttons and they work more intuitively than the V2 - but the concepts are the same and easily picked up on after using the V2. I am going to stay with the manual putting for now. Once I am used to using the V3 I might try the auto putting again. It did not fit to me before. I like to practice strokes away
  14. Well, mine seems to have arrived in Houston - only 5 days to get there from Illinois. Still expected to deliver on 17th. At least that is good news. It is actually in USPS hands now so no issues with the DHL/USPS transfer. Not complaining - the shipping info has not changed - just 7 days still seems a long time. I guess we get used to the fast deliveries way too easily.
  15. It would seem that he played the provisional because of a potential OOB but when the original ball was found not OOB then the provisional ball becomes moot. He now has a ball in a red penalty area and can take all the reliefs allowed as stated above. But if he chooses the stroke/distance option then he must go back and execute the shot from the original spot - he can't use the provisional ball which could only apply for the OOB case (which did not occur) Someone who knows better than myself will probably correct me if I am in error.
