  1. I heard that they are having problems with shaft suppliers. Orders being pushed back depending on what shaft you ordered.
  2. Well done sir! Now go do it again!
  3. Six over for the last four holes. My short game was non existent. I hit nine greens in regulation with no trouble getting off the tee. My chipping/pitching cost me five shots at a minimum. Actually spent an hour in the chipping area after the round because I was so disgusted. I am glad you played well for the majority of the round! Good to hear!
  4. I hate you guys! Lol. I have read this thread and now I want one!
  5. I always enjoy your content! Keep it going!

    Go Joe!

    Thanks boys! It was a good one!
  7. No. I am not an overpronator. However, as someone who is actually a podiatrist (and didn’t just spend the night in a Holiday Inn).....I can tell you that the ASICS brand is a solid shoe and should serve you well. If you want maximum stability, I generally recommend one of the Adidas Tour shoes to patients. The new HOVR shoe from Under Armour is also a very solid choice for an overpronator.
  8. Here is my Autoflex review. Shout out to @Manimal26as I purchased the shaft from him. Great guy to deal with.... I have had this for close to a week now. It is a very well made shaft. It feels whippy. This is unlike anything you have ever swung. I can guarantee that. I paired the Autoflex 405 shaft with my Ping G400 driver head. Driver SS 93-94 mph. I have gained 4-5 mph swinging at my “normal” speed. That translates roughly to ten yards that I was seeing. Dispersion was down a little. I am used to my driver being a fairway finder over 70% of the time. So that was a little depressing. Smash factor didn’t seem to change from my current shaft to the Autoflex. Now. Here is where it gets really interesting. If I slowed my driver swing with the Autoflex just a little from my “normal”.....the swing speed didn’t change from my gamer shaft at normal speed. My smash factor went up slightly and my dispersion was actually improved from my gamer shaft. My big miss also disappeared using this intent. So my intent was to get something to let me hit the ball further, but if I slow it down....my accuracy improves without distance loss. Go figure!
  9. Darn you. I just dropped some money on this device because it looks awesome!
  10. You are absolutely correct! Proximity to the hole is a direct correlation to better scores. And I figure the closer I am to the hole after the tee ball....the better my proximity will be. Love it! I will be the right handed Bubba!
  11. Driver swing speed is 93-94 mph. I got the 405. Very pumped to see what this will do for my swing speed. I hit 73% of fairways last season. If I can get 15-20 more yards (1-2 less clubs into the green as a result) and maintain accuracy then I will be very pleased. Distance is king. I did an experiment on an empty course this year. I played two balls. One from my regular tees of 6500 yards....and one from the senior tees. I shot a 78 from the regular tees and a 68 from the senior tees. I was on every par five except one in 2 shots from the senior tees, and it became very clear how much easier this game is the further you hit it! I look forward to sharing my progress!
  12. You better pad that pole! I took one off the face from my unpadded pole on my net return. That left a mark! Needless to say my net return is fully padded now!
  13. Ok. I couldn’t stand it after reading about this shaft all over the internet. People either get massive gains with it or they don’t. Probably having a correct combination of shaft and head for your own individual swing. Anyways, I decided to give it a go. Ordered a shaft from @Manimal26 here on my golf spy. Process went very smoothly. I am going to pair this with my Ping G400 head. Every one says this head is too heavy, but I will counterweight it if necessary to bring swingweight down. I will update all with my progress. Worst case scenario....I sell the shaft and recoup some of the money spent on this distance experiment.
  14. Great shoe! I don’t recommend them if the grass is really wet, or you are expecting rain. They are labeled as water resistant.
  15. I am very tempted to pull the trigger on this shaft. I am waiting for an MGS reviewer that I trust to give one of these a go and see real world benefits. Until then, I will remain on the sideline.
  16. I couldn’t remember if I had already donated for the year or not.....so I donated. Don’t buy anything without checking here first. Greatly appreciate all the work everyone at MGS does.
  17. I have noticed that I tend to die the ball into the hole from whatever distance using the DF, but blow it by regularly with a traditional putter. I believe it has to do with the fact that I feel I have to actively release a regular putter through impact whereas I let the DF release itself through impact.
  18. You should be able to measure the lie angle of the putter with a protractor. As far as your true lie angle when putting....take a regular putter and set up as you normally would and film down the line. You can measure your lie angle on the video as well....and there is your comparison. As far as shortening the putter....I am not completely sure you can do that without changing the way the putter works....because all the heads are a different weight. That is probably a better question for the folks at LAB golf. They are always very helpful with any questions I have had in the past.
  19. Appreciate your write up. Quick question. Website states committed players see a 20-40% handicap reduction in weeks. Did you see that level of improvement?
  20. Those look like a Lynx knock off of the Ping Eye 2s.
  21. Second the Country Club elite mat for concrete. Have had mine for six years. Zero issues with the mat. It still looks new. No problems with my body hitting off the garage setup every day. And...unlike some mats at a range....you will know if you hit the ball fat.
  22. Because I was curious if it would work better. Hi. My name is Joe and I am a club ho. I think that’s what you are supposed to say when you introduce yourself at the meetings I figured if I didn’t like it, then I would switch out the shaft and sell the stability shaft. Total gamble. If I hadn’t previously used the KBS shaft with success, then I would have went with the stability shaft last time as well.
  23. Not a question for me but I thought I would chime in. My original DF was purchased off E bay after finding out my lie angle. Putter was a little longer than I wanted, but it was used and I wanted a cheap way to try one out. Loved it so I bought a brand new one in the length I wanted. I was scared to get the stability shaft because I was afraid it would change the feel of the putter that worked so well. The KBS is a solid shaft for this putter. Don’t be afraid of that shaft. Full disclosure, I did order a new one today with the stability shaft.
  24. Yes. You are correct. I should have clarified my statement. They don’t want the shaft at 90 degrees to the head of the putter because then you could truly perform a SBST stroke in a pendulum manner and putting would be much simpler.
  25. Truer words were never spoken. Additionally a putter shaft at 90 degrees is illegal.
