  1. Here is a picture of our vodka trophies that we gave to our league champions. The options from the company were Gin, Vodka, or Whisky. The Vodka was the best fit for our budget, although I feel like the whisky would make the etching look good. The nice thing about the bottle, as I mentioned when I gave them out, is that they are a corked bottle. You can always refill it with whatever other drinks you’ve got kicking around. We have a trophy and awards expo in town in a few week where we may go and take a look at other ideas for prizes that are non-golf specific. One that I’ve seen was a custo
  2. I’m wondering what is everyone’s favourite thing they’ve gotten as a first tee gift, event prize, league prize, or other giveaway! The course I am working at is doing engraved bottles of vodka for the Men’s League winning team and I though this was pretty cool. Bonus points if you’ve got pictures!

  3. The common theme that I am seeing is that most of you prefer to have a set tee time so that you know exactly when you are playing each week. I love the idea of the 1v1 match play but I don't think that's something the guys in my league would be looking at. Is there anything from your leagues that you want changed?

  4. I'm looking to get input from anyone who is part of a Men's League at their local club. I am in charge of running a 9-hole Men's League at a 27-hole public facility but have been told to change the league setup to match the other courses in the company. The current setup has it where the players are split into 4 groups, each with a 1 hour block (either 5-6 or 6-7) on different 9 holes. Each week the teams are rotated so if you have a 5-6 time one week, you have a 6-7 time the week after. Same thing with course, if you play course 1 this week, you get course 2 next week. Players are required to
  5. Back in my junior days I had several holes that worked their ways into double digits. Im my first ever tournament, playing cross-handed at the time, I managed to take a 17 on a par 5. OB all down the right and I put 5 out of bounds before I essentially chipped off the tee and worked myself down the fairway. I shot 144 that day. As I grew up I got significantly better but I still managed an 11 at a tournament at Predator Ridge. Par 5 over water where you can choose your line and challenge as much water as you can. Hit 2 drives that carried all the way until the wooden boards at the edge of the

  7. It's sad to say, but such a joy at the same time, to have bought another putter this week. I got a Betty Queen Bee 7 from a demo event that was still in plastic. This makes it so I know have 4 putters from 4 different brands. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  8. Glad someone started this thread! I just wish it was a few months earlier when I suffered my injury. On June 30th, 2017 I was moving a safe at work, which was one of the old style big block with a top door latch, when the safe slipped off of the rollers and the door, which was still open, fell and crushed the top of my finger. After getting to the hospital I spent 6 hours between X-ray, assessments, and finally surgery. The door had crushed the distal phalange (bone above your top knuckle)(the part with the nail) and there was no chance they would be able to re-attach the removed piece. After

  11. Interesting read regarding the percentage of 3 putts compared to player skill levels on the blog and just wanted to throw my 2 cents in. Putting is easily the hardest part of the game in my opinion, and I feel like a lot of amateurs would agree. How many times do you hit the green in reg, blow your birdie putt 12 feet past, and walk away with a 3-putt bogey. It has to be one of the worst feelings in golf. It's hard to truly practice putting as well since every green has a different slope, every course has a different speed, and every region has different green characteristics (grain, local

  13. Hello friends, long time since I've posted but I need some honest opinions. I'm in charge of running the Men's league at my course and I am having second thoughts about how the format has been the previous few years. The Men's league consists of teams of 4-8 players (roughly 15 teams so far) that play 9 holes. Scoring is based off of the 3 best net scores and the lowest gross score. We currently have 20 weeks of league play scheduled. So here is my problem. We have teams of 4 where the lowest handicap is 23 (Team A), and we have teams of 8 where there are 4 players that have 15 or lower ha
  14. Got bored at work today and decided to play around with the weights on the new M1. Thankfully Taylormade made the 2017 M1 significantly easier to move the weights onto the different rails of the club. This allows for both weights to be placed on the front (draw/fade) or back (high/low) tracks. With a few M1 heads kicking around I decided to fill both tracks with 4 weights (see pic below). The shaft in the driver I was using for this was a 65gram shaft, by no means an overly heavy shaft, but the feeling of having an added 72 grams of weight into the head brought back memories of weight
  15. Found a Never Compromise Connoisseur Portofino putter in a bargain bin, original Headcover and grip, for $30. A bit of lead tape later to weight it up a bit and it's perfect.

  19. I admire his effort, but you gotta at least make contact with the ball. The closest I've come to that was playing from a water hazard during a junior event a few years back. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  20. Fairway wood shafts usually range between 70-80 grams instead of 60-65 grams for drivers. Most shafts will that come at 46" raw suggest that you cut 1" from the tip for a 3 wood, and 1.5-2" for a 5 wood. Best to reference the spec sheet for the companies website for a specific shaft. Fairway shafts will commonly have different torque ratings also. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  21. I've been working for GolfTown for a few years as a sales associate as well as a club repair tech. Recently I became a member of the PGA of Canada which now has me working as an assistant professional at a 27 hole public course. I've also played collegiate golf for 3 years (2 in CCAA and one year of NCAA D2) where I've seen a lot of different covers. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  22. I work in the industry and I've seen lots of people who have interesting head covers. I can recall a teammate while I played golf in college that would have his driver and fairway head covers as a related theme (Pirate/Parrot, Burger/Fries, etc...). So as a new member to the MGS forum I want to hear from everyone about what head covers they have and any special reasons they have them. Personally I have a husky head cover for my driver because huskies are my favourite breed of dog. I also have a kangaroo on my fairway for my sister who lives in Australia. I also have a penguin as my h
  23. If you are looking for "the unicorn" don't be afraid to make a few frankenclubs along the way. I struggled with my driver for a while and it all came around one day when I took the Ping Tour Stiff shaft out of a G30, tipped it 3/8 to play a touch stiffer, and threw it on my Titleist 910 D3 head. Two different brands ended up making one of the most consistent drivers I have ever had. Truth be told I have been using a different driver for about 6 months because it gives me significantly more distance, but that's a side note Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

  25. I personally wouldn't mind seeing more use of the Snell MTB. Seems to fill all categories. Doesn't make clubs, available to anyone with internet, proven to be comparable to other tour style balls. I've played the ball all of 2016 and had a fantastic year doing so.
