  1. - Jordan - Sacramento, CA - 4.6 - Mizuno JPX 919 Forged, Oban CT-115S - T100S
  2. Jordan Sacramento, CA ~110MPH. It’s been a little while. since I’ve seen it on a launch monitor but my driver distance is around 300 total, 7 iron 180 carry so whatever that translates to typically. Taylormade M2 15° 3W, Callaway X-forged driving Iron 21° (Recently dropped the 18° hybrid from the bag), 4-Iron Lefty
  3. On that list, the Srixons would have to be my favorite. Couldn't stand looking and mizunos shovels this year Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  4. I personally prefer playing players irons. Had one set of GI irons (rocketbladez Tour) and found that it was less fun when every shot flies the same. Couldn't actually tell if I was hitting the ball good or not. Also, like you I have a very high ball flight and players style irons have always allowed me to better control my flight. Ultimately there are drawbacks but I've always believed players irons will make you a better player, even if you don't necessarily see an improvement on score immediately. You'll learn to hit different shots. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  5. I've seen a ball flat out turn around and start coming back. Was able to confirm because the divot on the green was facing the opposite direction At the opposite end of the spectrum, recently had a nice tailwind and lofted up a nice 3 wood over a lake and carried it 300. About 50 yards more than my average. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  6. I completely disagree. First of all the cost of a set of clubs is VASTLY more expensive. In no way are these scenarios similar. Also, Unlike running your swing will significantly change the more you play whereas changes in your running form don't significantly alter the shoe you need. Even if they did, I can easily afford another set of shoes. I cannot afford to be refit again after my swing has changed and the irons I was custom fit for as 25 HCP no longer work for me as a 10 HCP. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  7. Maybe I'm odd but I always pick a ball based on how well it performs in flight. All urethane balls react the same for me on the green 180 yards and in so I'm more concerned with better card and straighter flight. Realistically almost all of them play the same. ProV is the shortest off the tee tho for me. MT5 and TP5 are the longest, Srixons for some reason are the only ball the spin noticeably more on the green Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  8. Getting through the ball. Bodies stopping rotation through impact. Lines are clean but when I get stuck like that i feel a little flippy with the hands at impact and get inconsistent shot shapes. Much prefer hitting my towering draws when I'm hitting through the ball. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  9. I wear mine until I chip/putt. Put it on on the tee box Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  10. The course graphics look great but the player mechanics and even ball/divot graphics look terrible. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  11. Make clean contact and it doesn't matter . Really though, when it's wet I actually like to feel like I'm hitting the front of the golf ball Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  12. IMO, the new drivers each year are marginally better but not enough to make a difference from one year to the next. When we start talking about 3-4 years then I can see a difference. I think the driver wars will continue until all the manufacturers introduce a consistent COR across the entire face. The technology is probably already there but it would be corporate suicide to release their "best" driver. Instead new features trickle out one at a time. Ultimately, when COR and MOI reach their max it will just come down to aerodynamics, and stock shaft availability Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  13. Cost. Most people don't have thousands of dollars lying around to pay for a fitting and all the head/shaft combos. I know for me, getting custom fit would improve my game but not drastically. Especially since my game is constantly evolving. What I was fit for 6 months ago may no longer be best for my swing. IMO you shouldn't get fit until you are consistently shooting at least in the low 80s. Before that you're just not consistent enough Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  14. If you're visiting Monterey Bayonet and Black Horse are the best deal on the peninsula. Poppy hills is also vastly underrated. Besides pebble it's my favorite course. In the Sacramento area closer to where I am, Darkhorse in Auburn, CA is a great course. Quite difficult but always in great shape. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  15. Because the pros can hit it 100 yards longer than your average golfer already. The pros can afford to give up distance off the tee. I myself as a fairly average hitter cannot. I need all the distance I can get to ensure that I'm hitting an iron opposed to a long iron or wood into the longer par 4s Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
