  1. John in Ohio Handicap 22 I have used several training aids over the years. I am always looking for something that is easy to use and gives good feedback when I do not make a good stroke. This product looks interesting and would love to give it a try to compare what I have used in the past. Currently do not have a "go to" training aid that I really like. Putt year round with my putting green in the basement.
  2. I am a senior golfer who is semi-retired and owns a small business. My business is conducted by appointment only, so I have control over my schedule. I have given up on playing on the weekends, it is painfully slow. The only time I can play a round in under 4.5 hours is before 10 am on Saturday. Forget Sunday - 5-6 hours. Unfortunately those Saturday early tee times are usually booked by course regulars and are rarely available. I usually play one morning (Tuesday or Wednesday) and on Friday afternoons around 1 pm. My friends and I know the courses we can play in about 4 hours and we frequent those courses. Occasionally we will play a course we know will be slow but try to go at a time when we have the best chance of not being held up. Most courses book tee times 8 minutes apart which is OK unless some group plays so slow that they get 2 or more holes behind. The courses we prefer will keep a group like that moving or make them skip a hole to catch up. I would prefer 10 minutes between tee times, generally those courses cost a lot more. I am not sure what can be done to speed up pace of play on courses that don't care about getting people to play a 4 hour round. One suggestion is to require courses to report the time of their average round during the week and on weekends so that golfers will know going in what they are in for if they book a tee time. It might make more courses pay more attention to pace of play and allocate resources (marshal's) to maintain a good pace. Course design also plays a part and I see many courses in our area taking steps to increase pace of play by converting sand bunkers to grass bunkers, providing drop areas on par 3's with water fronting the green and generally using common sense allow golfers to play by the rules but not slow the course down. The new shorter lost ball time and the stroke and distance change should help.

  5. For some reason I cannot post a comment to the Most wanted driver review. But I wanted to point out that the rankings are purely subjective. There is no significant difference from a statistical standpoint from the top to well into the bottom third of the rankings. Take a look at the Wilson D300 driver versus the top rated Srixon. The Wilson wins in almost every category yet finishes 10th. How can you justify these ratings when all drivers are within a range that is statistically insignificant. I think you need to hire a statistician and have him evaluate the data and see if there are any significant differences in the data. If there are then publish which drivers are essentially the same statistically and which are a notch below. Right now I don't see any scientific methodology to support your rankings. Said statistican can also determine the accuracy and precision of the Foresight launch monitor and tell you what differences in clubhead speed, ball speed etc are significant. Based on my knowledge you are ranking a bunch of drivers that are all equivalent from a true statistical analysis. With maybe the bottom two or three outside of the norm. When the data for each driver is that close you can draw any conclusions you want. I appreciate your desire to find the best equipment out there and advise golfers from an independent standpoint but you need to review your methodology and be sure it conforms to generally accepted scientific analysis standards. Thanks JOHN
