  1. Played a nice Executive course today with my Grandparents as their first time out for the year. Just nine holes but it was very relaxed we played rather quickly for a 3-some. I played well at +4 with only 3 “bad” shots. Two of which can be attributed to me not paying attention. All in all I would say I had a good round and ball striking with the new swing changes is really starting the click! Hope Everyone is getting out and Staying Safe! Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  2. I used to work a Cazenovia Park Golf Course for 5 years during college, I’m sure we’ve crossed paths before. Good to see more Buffalo guys on here. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  3. I did my certification through the NASM golf fitness program just because I was also taking my Certified Personal Trainer certification through them as well, but from what I’ve seen of the two programs they are extremely similar with a lot of the differences being in the wording and references they use.

  4. Love little projects like this! Now I just have to find an old X-stiff shaft to cut up Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  5. This is my hometown and I can say that this would greatly increase the ability of players in the area to practice and get others to enjoy the game of golf. When I originally saw the video it was on Facebook and Instagram but I’m very excited for something like this to be in the city. Gets the company and the game of golf out in front of people.

  6. I agree. I’m a strength coach by trade and do private sessions focusing on golf fitness. Often times if you can get your glutes and hip flexors to loosen up, the pain will subside. The next thing I would look at is your mid back (thoracic spine). These two things when tight or out of alignment can cause severe back pain. Feel free to PM me if you have more questions Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  7. Delaware is just too far for me but I would love to get to get her with some guys and play. It’s tough to have a consistent group with my schedule Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  8. As a golf specific trainer I’m glad to see more and more people getting involved in the fitness side of their game. It can unlock so much potential and for many will make the sport so much more enjoyable while helping them to play longer with less fatigue! Great job guys and keep that determination!

  9. I’ve only ever had one putter and it’s an original Ping PAL. That’s not to say that I haven’t thought about buying a mallet style before but the only other profile that has caught my attention is the Tommy Armor Impact #3. I’ve played around with it a little bit at stores but it never seemed to look square to the ball for some reason. Really interested in other people’s perception of this and wondering if I’m the only one with this experience? Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  10. Shot the first 18 hole score for the year today with 83. Picking up right where I left off last year and making that handicap drop. Also had a combination of two 9’s score of 81. This year should be good!! Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  11. I been playing golf consistently for about 4 years after my grandfather first taught me how to play when I was little. My current handicap is 14 and I would love to see that drop to 10 by the end of this year. I love the challenge it presents with the balance of precision and power but also the camaraderie between fellow golfers I originally can to MGS to gain a greater understanding behind the game and maybe catch a few tips to help lower my scores and further enjoy the game. Sadly I don’t really know any other Spies. I’m from Buffalo NY, and play many different places. Usually between Attica CC and Cazenovia Park GC for my home courses. My trade is strength and conditioning, mainly for athletes but I also work with kids and adults. I recently finished a certification in Golf Fitness that I’m start to apply in my own workouts and seeing some great results. My username is nothing fancy, just my name and some numbers but it’s always been the same. P.S. I would love to meet some of you and play a couple rounds if at all possible. Love playing new courses with good people. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  12. Yesterday was 50 and calm in western New York. It also marked the first day this year I got out on the local municipal course and hit off of real grass. Only got to play 5 holes but it was enough to get a sense of real golf after hitting off of Turf indoors all winter. Hopefully the full season is just around the corner!

  13. Sometimes those wires run along the trunk lid and start to break from constant open and close of the lid. So you may have a broken wire. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  14. The only thing Titleist is really missing from their line up is a game improvement or super game improvement set of irons but with their success and notoriety in the world of quality irons I don’t think that’s something they will or should try to add. In my opinion the players in this category of golf won’t benefit from the name on a club so whether it is Titleist or Top Flight I’m not sure it really matters. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  15. I agree 100% that golf is as expensive or inexpensive as we want to make it. My personal set of clubs has cost me a total of $85. It took a couple years and some patients but there are definitely ways to get around the “high club cost”. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
