  1. Top row: 7 iron swing from July 2018 as I began my review of the G700 irons. Bottom row: this morning, with a GW. I've got opinions, but tell me what you see.
  2. For the donor badge: please send a DM to one of the mods with your donation confirmation number and we'll add that. For the other badges: you'll need to pick which two of those you want most.
  3. Official Review Thread: PING G710 Irons It's a special joy for me to announce the reviewers of the PING G710 irons. PING iron tests are always among our most-applied-for, (dare I say) most wanted review opportunities. I had the privilege of getting in on the test of the predecessor to the G710s and have shot the best rounds of my life with my G700s. I am absolutely looking forward to seeing how the sequels perform in the hands of our four forum testers! Without further ado, our reviewers will be: @perseveringgolfer @Berg Ryman @JonMUSC08 @McaseyM Join me in congratulating these four and in following their reviews here!
  4. As of this moment, I think I have the putter I'm planning to (at least) start the season with; it's a conventional 34" putter. In my putting stroke, I definitely seek to avoid the breakdown of the left wrist. An idea I have percolating: has anyone here tried practicing with an arm lock putter as a training aid? It seems like it might help ingrain some useful habits.
  5. My course is closed. Because it's still under a foot of snow. And it's snowing today. Happy spring, everyone!
  6. It turns out, my life was pretty quarantined, and I just didn't realize it. We homeschool the kids, so that's remained unchanged. And I normally work each day from my study in the church, where I'm the only one in the building. So that's unchanged. I'm even more boring that I thought I was.
  7. Guys, let me step in here. We're like a week into the quarantine; we'll likely be talking about this for a while now. In the spirit of the moral code, let's knock off discussions of our opinions of how bad the coronavirus is/will be. This is a good thread for us to vent about how the circumstances are affecting each of us and to encourage each other now.
  8. Still waiting for the snow to melt here; probably at least a month from playing golf outside. Yesterday, I was home with three of my children, as my wife was going for an ultrasound picture of child #5. This happened: I really expected that it would take him at least a little while to make five in a row, so he'd got some practice in. Nope: knocks in the first five in a row, and heads back up to play some more If you can't understand him, as he's putting, he's telling me that when he goes back upstairs, he wants to switch to playing Street Fighter 4 instead of 5, because the matches get done quicker. He's talking as he's putting, and he never even looks at the hole (putting on a square green helps there). Also: he's gotten really good at Street Fighter, even straight up beating me at times. He hates losing there just like he hates losing at anything.
  9. This week on NPG: Two more DTC golf ball brands aren't hitting shelves near you. Also, why can't shaft companies agree on flexes? Lastly, we answer some more reader questions, including tips on getting the most out of a fitting. Let's get it! 1:05 -Quantix and Seed are two fresh faces in the DTC ball game. Can they offer something unique in an increasingly crowded space? 24:27 - One shaft company's R flex might be another's S. Why can't they find common ground standardized naming? 35:48 - #AskMyGolfSpy: How is COVID impacting golf manufacturing, what's with weird wedge loft numbers, and how do I make the most of a fitting?

  10. I have received mine as well and I'm generally impressed so far. We're still quite a ways out from getting on the course here, so I'll report back once I have opportunity to use it for real. Two observations so far. The first is that the GrooveIt forced me to think about something that I never had to think about before: making sure I didn't leave my club brush in the garage with my clubs during the winter. Presumably, if there is water in the reservoir, you'd risk it breaking when it freezes. Second, I'm slightly nervous about the feel when I screw the brush head on to the handle. The threads are plastic, and it feels (I have not tried to test it) that overtightening would strip the threads. I could be wrong, but that part of it doesn't give me the best feedback. But the functionality has been promising so far: the sprayer works, the bristles are stout. The magnet seems strong. I'm looking forward to giving it a run, and it'll get a good test in the muddy spring we have once the snow melts.
  11. There's no issue starting this thread; it's an issue at the forefront of just about everything right now, including golf. Obviously, it is a topic that could quickly descend into politics. The mods will keep an eye on it, but let me just say: don't be the guy who posts, "I know we're not supposed to do politics here, but...." If you suspect you're posting something on the borderline of our Forum Moral Code, err on the side of discretion.
