  1. Wonder what club has had the longest tenure in the bag? [emoji57] Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  2. You already have the TS1. So why the need for the TS3? Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  3. This is a good one! I like the "Birdie Every Hole" Challenge the best. I think Par would be achieved much too quick to be a fun test. My "home" course if you will (well the one I play the most often) is Shenandoah Valley CC. This course has 3 nines ... Blue, White, & Red nine. For this exercise, we will assume I am playing the Blue/White 18 holes combination. This course is not very long, depending on which combination of nines you play, it can range from 6100 to 6400 yards or so from the back set of tees. It's main defense are the fairly large greens, long rough & trees off the fairways. Blue/White is a par 7, 6371 yards .... only 3 par 3's & 3 par 5's. Blue nine starts off & ends with par 5's ... so these are really good chances for a birdie right off the bat ... just 546 & 487 yards from the back tees, respectively, with no real trouble unless you're off the fairway. I have eagled both of those in the past. #2 is a long par 3, downhill .... this would be a hard birdie most of the time because you have to hit it close or get lucky with a long putt. It's a huge green. But I hit it to a foot last week for a birdie ... so knock that one off the list. LOL #3 thru #5 are going to be tough birdies because, like a lot of the holes here, you have to hit it close on your approaches to really have a chance at birdie. These are some really tough greens to not 3-putt because of their immense size. White 9 is straight forward ... just over 3,000 yards from the back. #9 par 5 should be an easy birdie if you're hitting the ball well. But it's usually my last hole & I'm always tired by then so it becomes difficult to birdie sometimes. #3 is a 190 yard long, uphill shot so it plays longer than the card says most days. It needs to be an accurate shot to have any chance. #4 & #5 main defense are small, severely sloped greens, from left to right ... if you're not on the right side, you may have a hard time with Par, let alone Birdie. #6 & #7 are definite birdie holes as long as you come off the tee box with no issues. #8 par 3 of 188 yards is going to be tough. Very small green from front to back, so it takes precision to get it close. There are some definite birdie holes on this course I can already cross off the list from my round last week. But there are some that may take me awhile to birdie. It's going to be a fun challenge nonetheless.
  4. Congrats everyone! Hopefully none of you run into injuries or issues beyond your control that take you out of the training schedule like I did

  8. Leesburg, VA 48 Current Driver SS - 95 - 98 mph Rate your fitness level: average Affirmation that you will see the entire program through - YES! Now that my hip has been replaced, I can see this through to the end. I know I was picked for it last time but it was just bad timing for me. I would love to give it another shot. Especially since we are stuck at home & I will have a lot more time to dedicate to this. Thanks for the opportunity once again!
  9. Congrats guys! Looking forward to hearing about this driver Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  10. Definitely hosel setting. Changing the face angle would have a much greater impact on dispersion & ball flight. Weights are there to tweak the ball flight. But @jlukesis correct .... the shaft is all about feel and player dependent. Everyone's attack angle, swing speed, kick point, etc. is going to be different. That's why there are so many shaft options out there & why the fitting process is so important.
  11. I have seen it .... multiple times Ahh the beauty of Persimmon! Remember the days I had a set of Hogan Persimmon woods back in high school. Talk about beautiful. I used to polish the heads after I played. I think in my stupid youth I sold them eventually when the first metal woods came out. Dumb a**!
  12. Since I've been a Titleist homer since .... Oh, forever ago. Of course I have to enter! Chris Leesburg, VA 8 handicap Titleist T200 & T300 combo .... I've gamed the AP2's since the originals in 2008 to the 718's of 2017 T100S Thanks for the opportunity MGS & Titleist!
  13. I see you sacrifice forgiveness for distance with the Mavrik. No surprise there
  14. Playing on weekends mostly here in VA still. As long as the courses are open, I will still play. Riding in the cart still as well. Most courses don't have enough carts to allow single riders for everyone. So I will ride with someone, but still do a lot of walking besides the cart. I basically use the cart as a transport for my clubs & for the ride from the green to the next tee box. I practice safety at all times.... I bring sanitizer, leave the flag in, do the 'ol "elbow bash" instead of a handshake, wipe down the cart with sanitizing wipes even if the course said they did. These are some trying times but I'll be damned if it's going to stop me from playing. We all gotta die of something ... so let me die on the golf course.
  15. Good Idea! This will help tremendously for everyone.
